Software Designed By IRP Solutions' IRP6 Fits President Obama's Anti-ISIL Strategy, Says Advocacy Group, A Just Cause

Advocacy Group, A Just Cause, Encourages DoD and Homeland Security to Take a Look at the Case Investigative Lifecycle Software (CILC); Group Says CILC is the Answer to ISIS Threat at Home and Abroad

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - July 09, 2015) - The advocacy organization, A Just Cause, believes that the Case Investigative Lifecycle (CILC) software designed by executives of IRP Solutions (IRP6) fits perfectly with President Obama's anti-ISIL strategy.

According to the Department of Defense website, on July 6, 2015, "President Barack Obama discussed the strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with civilian and military leaders of his national security team at the Pentagon today." The report went on to state that after the President met with his national security team, he spoke to the media regarding his "anti-ISIL strategy."

According to Newser.com, President Obama stressed that the fight against ISIL will be a long-term fight, but he highlighted four key points that will be used in the fight: (1) More airstrikes, (2) More support for those fighting ISIS on the ground, (3) Making full use of US power and counterterrorism expertise, and (4) Helping civilians displaced by ISIS.

"While the government is trying to find a solution to combat ISIS, the CILC software is already developed and ready to be used", says Cliff Stewart. "CILC can easily adapt to the strategy that the President outlines for the fight against ISIS, especially when looking for something that can beef up the counterterrorism capability," Stewart adds. "The CILC software provides features and functionality that other failed initiatives couldn't, or didn't, deliver", says Cliff Stewart.

"CILC was first introduced to the Department of Homeland Security over ten years ago and if the agency had integrated this software into its processes at that time, we would be that much farther ahead. We are now at a major junction in the road with regard to our national security, and all we are saying is that someone from the White House, DOD or Homeland Security should give us call to check out the capabilities of CILC," Stewart emphasizes.

"The situation with ISIS and homegrown terrorists is a matter of National Security", says Lamont Banks, A Just Cause Executive Director. "Our nation needs to take action, and we need to take action now against terrorists who have invaded our country," states Banks.

In a statement before the House Committee on Homeland Security (June 3, 2015), FBI Assistant Director, Counterterrorism Division stated, "Following other groups, ISIL has advocated for lone wolf attacks. In recent months ISIL released a video, via social media, reiterating the group's encouragement of lone offender attacks in Western countries, specifically advocating for attacks against soldiers and law enforcement, intelligence community members, and government personnel. Several incidents have occurred in the United States and Europe over the last few months that indicate this "call to arms" has resonated among ISIL supporters and sympathizers. The foreign terrorist now has direct access into the United States like never before." (http://www.fbi.gov/news/testimony/terrorism-gone-viral-the-attack-in-garland-texas-and-beyond)

During his discussions at the Pentagon on July 6, USA Today reported that President Obama commented, "The United States and other countries must remain vigilant against "lone wolves" who might be inspired by the Islamic State to launch terrorist attacks. That includes projects to counter an extremist ideology that seeks to attract adherents, including young Muslim men." (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/07/06/obama-isil-mccain/29772977/)

Reports show that not everyone on Capitol Hill agrees that the White House has a solid strategy to fight ISIS. According to the Wall Street Journal, Cory Fritz, press secretary for House Speaker John Boehner (R- Ohio), commented regarding President Obama's speech at the Pentagon, "A speech isn't a strategy. At no point in his remarks did President Obama indicate he's doing anything to change course and actually build the broad, overarching plan that's needed to take on these savage terrorists and win."

Reports also show that Senator John McCain (R - Ariz) commented, "Obama's comments reveal the disturbing degree of self-delusion that characterizes the Administration's campaign against ISIL."

"Our national security shouldn't come down to politics," says Banks, A Just Cause. "There is a crisis in our nation and it's the ISIS crisis, and the safety of our families and children, and our next generations deserve to know and trust that they will be safe on our homeland," adds Banks.

The CILC software offers over 40 features including: secure, adaptable, web-enabled, audit capable, multi-level case management capable, confidential sources/informants module, leads management, tip referral, operations management, investigations case management, information sharing, document management and imaging (forms generation and management), chain of custody, and evidence tracking.

"Managing intelligence operations with the vast amounts of non-integrated incident and investigative data is a complicated problem for law enforcement and intelligence agencies," says Stewart. "Intelligence organizations must be able to rapidly collect, collate, evaluate, analyze and disseminate contextually accurate information for effective forecasting, prediction and planning of interdiction operations. CILC can do this and more", Stewart adds.

"While our country is in a state of turmoil, the men who developed the CILC software are currently incarcerated in federal prison for what amounts to a corporate debt case; a civil matter that should have never made it to trial," says Sam Thurman, A Just Cause. The IRP6 case concerns a Colorado-based company (IRP Solutions Corporation) that developed the Case Investigative Life Cycle (CILC) criminal investigations software for federal, state, and local law enforcement. The IRP6 (Kendrick Barnes, David Banks, Demetrius K. Harper, Clinton A Stewart, David A. Zirpolo and Gary L. Walker) were convicted in 2011 after being accused of mail and wire fraud. (D. Ct. No. 1:09-CR-00266-CMA).

"A Just Cause is seeking opportunities with the Department of Homeland Security to prove that the CILC software is a vital solution that the country needs now," says Stewart. "The software is ready. It's a simple step to set up a demo and get this capability into the hands of our intelligence and counterterrorism experts," Stewart concludes.
