Louie Gohmert: If Orlando Was About Guns, Then “Boston Was About A Pressure Cooker”





Louie Gohmert: If Orlando Was About Guns, Then “Boston Was About A Pressure Cooker”


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called it “outrageous” that House Democrats would grab microphones and prevent fellow lawmakers from conducting business in violation of House rules, all to make a point about gun control, which is really beside the point, he said:

“And when people go on for 12 hours, saying things, ‘It’s about guns,’ then that means Boston was about a pressure cooker. It wasn’t. Both of them were about radical Islam,” Gohmert told Fox News’s Charles Payne.

“And the reason people died unnecessarily is because this FBI, this Justice Department, this Homeland Security has purged their training materials, so FBI agents don’t know what questions to ask to find out if Mateen [Orlando attacker] or Tsarnaev [Boston attacker] had been radicalized.


"In fact, Charles, it's even worse," Gohmert continued. "There was an article that came out that indicated that CAIR, Council on American-Islamic Relations, identified as a co-conspirator in supporting terrorism in the Holy Land Foundation, that their lawyer sat in while the FBI interviewed a person of interest in that mosque.

"That would be like the mob having their lawyer sit in while the FBI was interrogating, questioning somebody that might be a whistle-blower in the mob. You don't let that happen. So the FBI, the Justice Department is in major problems. They can't protect us because they don't know what to look for."

Gohmert called it "one of the great ironies" that civil rights activist John Lewis (D-Ga.), "a true legend" is now "using 'We Shall Overcome' and all this other stuff to try to take away a Second Amendment, a civil right under our Constitution. It just doesn't fit," he added.

Worst Mass Shooting Attack in U.S. History: Orlando






Worst Mass Shooting Attack in U.S. History: Orlando


Survivors who were partying at a gay club when terrorist Omar Mateen opened fire described the scenes of horror after they hid under dead bodies, ran for their lives, or heroically saved others who had been shot.

Mateen entered the Orlando nightclub Pulse wielding an AR-15 assault rifle, handgun and ‘unidentified device’ shortly after 2am, killing at least 50 people and injuring 53 more before he was shot dead by police around 5.35am.

ISIS Kills Dozens Of Fighters, Dropping Some In Vats Of Acid, Over Fears Of Spies



ISIS Kills Dozens Of Fighters, Dropping Some In Vats Of Acid, Over Fears Of Spies

ISIS commanders are killing their fighters by dropping them in vats of acid as the terror group searches for spies who are passing information to the US military.

The terror group has lost several senior members to drone strikes in recent months prompting the major security review.

In March, a senior commander with ISIS was driving through northern Syria on orders to lead militants in the fighting there when a drone blasted his vehicle to oblivion.

The killing of Abu Hayjaa al-Tunsi, a Tunisian jihadi, sparked a panicked hunt within the group’s ranks for spies who could have tipped off the U.S-led coalition about his closely guarded movements. By the time it was over, the group would kill 38 of its own members on suspicion of acting as informants.

They were among dozens of ISIS members killed by their own leadership in recent months in a vicious purge after a string of airstrikes killed prominent figures. Others have disappeared into prisons and still more have fled, fearing they could be next as the jihadi group turns on itself in the hunt for moles, according to Syrian opposition activists, Kurdish militia commanders, several Iraqi intelligence officials and an informant for the Iraqi government who worked within ISIS ranks.

The fear of informants has fueled paranoia among the militants’ ranks. A mobile phone or internet connection can raise suspicions. As a warning to others, ISIS has displayed the bodies of some suspected spies in public — or used particularly gruesome methods, including reportedly dropping some into a vat of acid.

ISIS sympathizers working at Brussels airport


ISIS sympathizers working at Brussels airport

Heat Street Political Reporter Jillian Melchior, Trump Foreign Policy Advisor Walid Phares, Fox News Military Analyst (Ret.) Maj. Gen. Robert Scales and High Noon Strategies President Lisa Boothe on a report about ISIS sympathizers working at the Brussels airport.

As many as 50 ISIS supporters have infiltrated the same Brussels airport where terror attacks occurred last month, working as cleaners, caterers and baggage handlers and positioning themselves for new attacks, the Belgian police union warned in an open letter to the government.

“Even today, there are at least 50 supporters of ISIS who work at the airport,” read the letter from union secretary Alain Peeters to the Belgian Interior Ministry and reported by the Daily Mail. “They have a security badge and have access to the cockpit of a plane.”

Brussels Airport, also known as Brussels-Zaventem Airport, handles more than 23 million passengers per year in the European Union capital. It is still shut down following the March 22 bombings, in which three Islamists fanatics set off suitcase bombs in attacks coordinated with a metro bombing just over an hour later. Some 35 innocent people were killed, and at least one bomber from the airport remains at large.

Baking and yoga: The excuses that get killer thugs out of Gitmo



Baking and yoga: The excuses that get killer thugs out of Gitmo

By Paul Sperry

December 19, 2015


It doesn’t take much to get released from Guantanamo these days. Just argue you’re a family man who likes baking. And look, you’ll even touch a woman!

In President Obama’s rush to clear out the military prison, any excuse — no matter how flimsy — is reason enough to parole.

Take Ibrahim al-Qosi. He was a member of Osama bin Laden’s “protection detail” and a “very high-ranking al Qaeda member,” who admitted knowing about the 9/11 plot and fighting against US forces in ­Afghanistan after the attacks.

“Detainee received basic training at the al-Faruq training camp, and as a UBL [bin Laden] bodyguard, likely received advanced or specialized training,” his intel file states, noting his experience firing rocket-propelled grenades and mortars.

The “enemy combatant” told interrogators it was his “religious duty to defend Islam and fulfill the obligation of jihad and that the war between America and al Qaeda is a war between Islam and the aggression of the infidels.” While imprisoned, al-Qosi had no fewer than 10 disciplinary infractions, including trying to fashion a shiv and assaulting two guards.

Obama intensified efforts to clear out Gitmo.

Suddenly, the administration was buying his defense team’s ­argument that al-Qosi was merely a cook who originally met bin Laden at a camp where they went “for recreation and horseback riding” and that he only ended up at al Qaeda’s headquarters in Kandahar “to get married.”

“He is now in his 50s, eager only to spend his life at home with his family in Sudan — his mother and father, his wife and two teenage daughters, and his brothers and their families — and live among them in peace, quiet and freedom,” said Washington attorney Paul Reichler, who once represented Nicaragua’s communist Sandinista government and who defended al-Qosi without pay for seven years.

Reichler failed to mention that his good client’s “wife” at the time was the daughter of another bin Laden bodyguard.

Muslim that Obama RELEASED from Gitmo is now leading Al-QAEDA in YEMEN!



Muslim that Obama RELEASED from Gitmo is now leading Al-QAEDA in YEMEN!


Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released a new video featuring a former Guantanamo detainee, Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani.

In July 2010, Qosi plead guilty to charges of conspiracy and material support for terrorism before a military commission. His plea was part of a deal in which he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors during his remaining time in US custody. Qosi was transferred to his home country of Sudan two years later, in July 2012.

Qosi joined AQAP in 2014 and became one of its leaders. Qosi and other AQAP commanders discussed their time waging jihad at length in the video, entitled “Guardians of Sharia.”

Islamic scholars ensure the “correctness” of the “jihadist project,” according to Qosi. And the war against America continues through “individual jihad,” which al Qaeda encourages from abroad. Here, Qosi referred to al Qaeda’s policy of encouraging attacks by individual adherents and smaller terror cells. Indeed, AQAP’s video celebrates jihadists who have acted in accordance with this call, such as the Kouachi brothers, who struck Charlie Hebdo’s offices in Paris earlier this year. The Kouachi brothers’ operation was sponsored by AQAP.

More on Qosi’s terrorist resume:


Qosi’s appearance marks the first time he has appeared in jihadist propaganda since he left Guantanamo. His personal relationship with Osama bin Laden and time in American detention make him an especially high-profile spokesman.

A leaked Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) threat assessment and other declassified files documented Qosi’s extensive al Qaeda dossier. In the threat assessment, dated Nov. 15, 2007, US intelligence analysts described Qosi as a “high” risk to the US and its allies.

“Detainee is an admitted veteran jihadist with combat experience beginning in 1990 and it is assessed he would engage in hostilities against US forces, if released,” JTF-GTMO found.

In 1990, Qosi met two al Qaeda members who recruited him for jihad in Afghanistan.

Qosi was then trained at al Qaeda’s al Farouq camp, which was the terror group’s primary training facility in pre-9/11 Afghanistan. In 1991, Osama bin Laden relocated to Sudan and Qosi followed. He worked as an accountant and treasurer for bin Laden’s front companies, a role he would continue to fill after al Qaeda moved back to Pakistan and Afghanistan in the mid-1990s.

What The FBI Reportedly Found In The Car Of The Mother Of San Bernardino Terrorist



What The FBI Reportedly Found In The Car Of The Mother Of San Bernardino Terrorist


Rafia Farook reportedly lived in the same Redlands, California, home where Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, stockpiled thousands of rounds of ammo and housed what has been referred to as an “IED factory” for building pipe bombs.

The discovery of empty GoPro packaging is particularly intriguing as rumors surfaced shortly after the shooting that the killers used GoPro cameras to capture the carnage. Police in San Bernardino said they have found no evidence to support the claim.

The Daily Mail cited an inventory sheet filled out by federal authorities following the search of the black Lexus IS300:

“Apple iPhone, multi-tool, key, business card, miscellaneous indicia, bank receipt, shooting targets, hammer, vice grips, U-Haul receipt, tire receipt, notebook, garment, GoPro packaging, vacuumings, legal documents.”

Rafia Farook was detained and questioned by police following the San Bernardino massacre that left 14 people dead, but was ultimately released with no charges filed.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday the FBI was examining whether the mother had any involvement in the attack or prior knowledge of the plot “very, very closely.” Farook is also reported to be a member of the Islamic Circle of North America.

Rafia Farook has not been spotted publicly since her release from police custody.

Former FBI Counterterrorism Agent: We’ve Received Virtually Zero Help From U.S. Muslim Community



Former FBI Counterterrorism Agent: We’ve Received Virtually Zero Help From U.S. Muslim Community


Though President Barack Obama claimed that America must “enlist Muslim communities” to combat terrorism in his Sunday evening Oval Office address, former FBI Counterterrorism Agent John Guandolo said on Monday’s Breitbart News Daily that since 9/11, “we collectively have received nearly zero help from the Muslim Community.”

Guandolo, who pointed out on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily that a “vast majority” of U.S. mosques and Islamic centers are a part of a much larger “jihadi network,” told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that though Muslim community leaders “certainly give the air as if they are helping,” if one looks at the “major Islamic organizations, the major Islamic centers in the United States,” they have “condemned all of the counter-terrorism policies and they’ve gotten the government to kowtow to them, to turn only to them for advice.”

“And what advice do they give them?” Guandolo asked. “That Islam doesn’t stand for this and that everything you’re doing is the reason for what happened—9/11 is your fault because of your policies.”

As Breitbart News reported, Los Angeles CAIR director Hussam Ayloush said last week just days after the San Bernardino terrorist attacks that America is “partly responsible” for the San Bernardino terrorist attacks because “some of our foreign policy” is “fueling extremism.”

Last night, Obama said that “if we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate.”

Guandolo said he doesn’t necessarily agree with the idea that “we have to work with the Muslim community in order to solve this problem here in the United States,” but “if you are going to work with the Muslim community, the U.S. government” should not be “exclusively working with Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood entities without exception” like it is doing now. Guandolo named the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Islamic Society of North America, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim American Society.

Fox News: Bank Records Show $28K Was Deposited to Syed Farook´s Account 2 Weeks Before San Bernardino Shooting



Fox News: Bank Records Show $28K Was Deposited to Syed Farook´s Account 2 Weeks Before San Bernardino Shooting


Fox News Catherine Herridge:

A $28,500 deposit was made to Syed Farook’s bank account from WebBank.com on or about Nov.18, some two weeks before he and his wife Tashfeen Malik carried out the San Bernardino massacre, a source close to the investigation told Fox News Monday.

Investigators are exploring whether the transaction was a loan taken out by Farook, who with his wife killed 14 and wounded 21 when they opened fire at a holiday lunch. He earned $53,000 a year with the county as an environmental health inspector.

On or about Nov.20, Fox News is told Farook converted $10,000 to cash, and withdrew the money at a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino. Afterwards, in the days before the shooting, there were at least three transfers of $5,000 that appear to be to Farook’s mother.
The loan and large cash withdrawal were described to Fox News by the source as “significant evidence of pre-meditation

Al Qaeda Terrorists Who Killed American Soldiers Were Allowed In To U.S. Thru Refugee Program

Two al Qaeda terrorists who had killed American soldiers were able to enter the country as refugees, according to a report released Wednesday from the House Homeland Security committee.

Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, two Iraqi refugees settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, after killing American soldiers, whom they bragged about having “for lunch and dinner.” In 2010, they were caught handling weapons, including included a machine gun and a missile launcher, that they planned to smuggle to insurgents in Iraq.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,” said Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas), the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. “And these are trained terrorists in the art of bombmaking that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.”

'420 potentially dangerous Islamists live in Germany'



'420 potentially dangerous Islamists live in Germany'


Berlin, Nov 17 (IANS/EFE) Around 43,000 people are part of Islamist circles in Germany and around 420 are considered potentially dangerous, the president of the German Federal Criminal Police Office (or BKA) has said.

In an interview with Die Welt newspaper after the attacks in Paris, Holger Munch recalled that Islamist terrorism attacks European values, with Germany also in its sight.

As he noted, the coordinated work of the security forces has prevented 11 attacks in the country, but Paris has shown that the risk of international terrorism is "high" and that Germany may also be affected.

The jihadists, he explained, are younger than they were a few years ago and radicalized much faster; sometimes they spend a few months or a few weeks until a person decides to travel to Syria.

Many have criminal records behind them and often, before travelling abroad to join the jihadists, come into contact with Salafist groups in Germany.

According to data from the BKA, more than 750 Islamists have left Germany bound for Iraq and Syria and there is information about 70 people who have returned after receiving military training or combat experience.

'Homeland' Speech Tells it Like it Is About ISIS





'Homeland' Speech Tells it Like it Is About ISIS

CIA agent Peter Quinn delivers a speech that stands out as uncommon sense on a show that has largely wallowed in moral equivalence between the West and Islamic terrorism.

Quinn (played by Rupert Friend) is introduced to a room of important people as an agent on the ground in Syria for two years, including Al-Raqqah, the de facto capitol of the Islamic State. When asked if our side's strategy is working, Quinn asks, "What strategy?" No one is able to answer him, and Quinn points out that therein lies the problem. ISIS has a strategy which includes beheadings, crucifixions, and the revival of slavery, and it all derives from "their f*cking book, the only book they ever read."

"They're there for one reason and one reason only," he continues, "to die for the Caliphate and usher in a world without infidels. That's their strategy and it's been that way since the 7th century."

Asked what he would do, Quinn suggests 200,000 soldiers on the ground and an equal number of doctors and teachers. Told that that is not feasible and asked for another solution, Quinn says, "Hit reset -- pound Raqqah into a parking lot."

FBI Tells Troops To Scrub Social Media So Jihadists Can’t Track Them


The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning members of the U.S. military to scrub their social media accounts of all personal info such as addresses as jihadists are now encouraging attacks on individual personnel.

“Anybody wants to do harm to our military, they just go online, they look at that. They see he’s deployed, his family is home alone, now we have a target” said Fox News national security analyst K.T. McFarland.

Terror groups such as ISIS have encouraged their fighters to go to the homes of members of the military and kill them and their families.

This warning has also been applied to military veterans as well.


Fox News:

The FBI and DHS are warning members of the United States military to scrub their social media accounts due to a growing threat from ISIS terrorists.

Catherine Herridge reported on “Happening Now” today on the joint bulletin that went out over the weekend.

The bulletin said the FBI has information suggesting “individuals overseas are spotting and assessing like-minded individuals who are willing and capable of conducting attacks against current and former U.S.-based members of the United States military.”

Officials want current service members and veterans to review their social media posts and remove information that could “attract the attention of ISIS and its supporters.”

12 Christians Brutally Executed By ISIS Refused to Renounce Name of Christ


12 Christians Brutally Executed By ISIS Because They Refused To Renounce Christ


Twelve Christians have been brutally executed by the Islamic State, including the 12-year-old son of a Syrian ministry team leader who had planted nine churches, because they refused to renounce the name of Jesus Christ and embrace Islam. The martyrs were faithful to the very end; right before one woman was beheaded by the terror group, she appeared to be smiling slightly as she said, “Jesus!”

According to Christian Aid Mission, a humanitarian group which assists indigenous Christian workers in their native countries, the horrific murders took place on August 28 in an unnamed village outside Aleppo, Syria.

“In front of the team leader and relatives in the crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the boy and severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam,” Christian Aid revealed, according to a report from Morning Star News. “When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion.”

They were killed for refusing to return to Islam after embracing Christianity, as were the other eight aid workers, including two women, according to Christian Aid. The eight were taken to a separate site in the village and asked if they would return to Islam. However, after they refused to renounce Christ, the women, ages 29 and 33, were raped before the crowd summoned to watch, and then all eight were beheaded.

They prayed as they knelt before the Islamic State militants, according to the ministry leader Christian Aid assists, who spoke with relatives and villagers while visiting the site.

“Villagers said some were praying in the name of Jesus, others said some were praying the Lord’s Prayer, and others said some of them lifted their heads to commend their spirits to Jesus,” the ministry director told Christian Aid. “One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, ‘Jesus!'”

In a manner reflective of Christ's crucifixion, the bodies of those killed were then hung on crosses for display.

The twelve martyrs are among thousands of Christians who have been ransomed, tortured, beheaded and killed over the past year by the Islamic State, a hardline Muslim group determined to wipe Christianity off the Middle Eastern map.

The jihadist group has also destroyed countless time-honored Christian monasteries, manuscripts, and holy sites in an attempt to eradicate the faith.

In Syria alone, the Christian population has plunged by nearly two-thirds since the country's civil war started in 2011. In Iraq, the Christian population is teetering on extinction, dwindling from around 1.5 million in 2003 to well below 200,000 now.

"It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under. I think we are dealing with a group which makes Nazism pale in comparison and I think they have lost all respect for human life," Patrick Sookhdeo, founder of Barnabas Fund, a charity which seeks to help Syrian Christians, told the Daily Express.

"Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law," he added. "For them what they are doing is perfectly normal and they don't see a problem with it. It is that religious justification which is so appalling."

Guantanamo Detainees Could Be Moving To Colorado



Guantanamo Detainees Could Be Moving To Colorado

NY Post

A team from the U.S. Defense Department will visit both a state and a federal prison in Colorado to assess their possible use for housing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, senior U.S. officials said Friday.

The visit comes as the Obama administration struggles to shut down the Guantanamo detention center and find a location within the U.S. to house its detainees. Within the next two weeks, the team will visit the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City and a medium-security federal prison in Florence, officials said.

The Pentagon team also has surveyed the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and the Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston, South Carolina. The reviews assess construction costs and other changes needed to house the detainees and conduct military commission trials.

In Colorado, the medium-security facility is on the same grounds as the maximum-security prison known as Supermax. It would need upgrades, said Cmdr. Gary Ross, a Pentagon spokesman.

“These efforts are consistent with our commitment to working with Congress to close Guantanamo, and are intended to help inform Congress of how we can meet this goal and what it will cost,” Ross said.

Al-Qaeda called for lone wolf-style attacks on several prominent U.S. business and economic figures on Wednesday.

The terror group did so in the latest issue of Inspire, its in-house, English-language magazine, the same magazine that reportedly inspired Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, to conduct the deadly attack at the 2013 Boston Marathon.

The magazine named at least five prominent American businessmen and two well-known economic figures.

“The assassination of these economic personalities or their migration from America or the mere fact that they live in insecurity, will later on bring instability to the American economy,” according to the magazine report.

The U.S. military said Wednesday it was aware of a purported hacking attack by Islamic State group supporters who posted on Tuesday what they claimed to be the personal information of hundreds of U.S. servicemen and women.

“We are aware of the report but cannot confirm credibility at this time,” a Pentagon spokesman told TheBlaze, adding, “The safety of our service members is always a primary concern.”

The group, which calls itself the “Islamic State Hacking Division,” said it hacked into U.S. military computers and released the personal information of military and government personnel, including alleged names, addresses, military-issued email addresses, passwords and credit card information.

ISIS Netted Up To $1B in Cash After Taking Over Mosul



ISIS Netted Up To $1B in Cash After Taking Over Mosul


FOX News

ISIS is also taking in $40 million a month in oil revenues alone, while ISIS fighters are paid $1000 a month.

ISIS netted between $500 million and $1 billion in cash when it took over Iraq’s second largest city in 2014, a top Obama administration official said Thursday.

Daniel Glaser, the U.S. Treasury’s assistant secretary for terror financing, told participants at the Aspen Security Forum that when ISIS swept through the city of Mosul in northern Iraq, it took the reserves of over 90 banks, estimated to be between $500 million and $1 billion.

The northern Iraqi city has been occupied by ISIS since June 2014 and is considered to be its main stronghold in the region.

Glaser also said that the May raid that killed Abu Sayyaf, a key ISIS leader in charge of the group’s oil and gas operations in eastern Syria, was a “treasure trove” of information on ISIS financing, giving new insight into the enormous financial operation propelling the terror group.

FBI Thwarted Plots To Kill Americans In July 4th ISIS-Connected Plots, 10 Arrested

WASHINGTON, July 9 (Reuters) – U.S. authorities thwarted plots to kill people in the United States around the July 4 holiday, FBI Director James Comey said on Thursday.

Comey told reporters more than 10 people inspired by the Islamic State’s recruitment online have been arrested over the past four weeks, some of which were focused on attacks around the July 4 holiday.

FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning to local law enforcement to be on alert for attacks around July 4. No such attacks occurred.

Comey did not give the details on the number of plots thwarted or their targets.

He said dozens of people in the United States who are suspected to be under the influence of Islamic State militants have “gone dark” because of encrypted data.

Sunday from New York, on AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable” with host John Catsimatidis , while discussing President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and the fight over NSA spying, former Vice President Dick Cheney said on Sunday that he is “fearful” that Americans “have forgotten what happened” on 9/11.


Cheney said, “You guys saw it all on 9/11, and the possibility for mass casualty attacks is very real.”

“I’m fearful that we’ve gotten far enough away now, after 14 years, far enough away from 9/11, that too many people have forgotten what happened and what it’s like when it does happen,” he continued. “Because there is a danger that next time they will have something deadlier than airline tickets and box cutters when they launch an attack.”

I agree it sure feels like many Americans have forgotten, especially the fact that they voted for Obama not only once but twice.

Dabiq: ISIS Could Transport Nuke from Nigeria into U.S. Through Mexico



Dabiq: ISIS Could Transport Nuke from Nigeria into U.S. Through Mexico


The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), in the latest edition of its propaganda magazine, indicated that it could purchase a nuclear weapon in Pakistan, take it to Nigeria, and then smuggle it into the U.S. through Mexico by using existing trafficking networks in Latin America.

In an op-ed article published in the ninth edition of ISIS’ Dabiq magazine released in late May, the jihadist group claims it could transport a nuclear device in the same way illicit drugs are smuggled into Europe through West Africa, adding that Boko Haram’s presence in Nigeria could facilitate the transaction.

The Nigeria-based Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, pledged allegiance to ISIS in March.

In March, Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command (Southcom), warned that Islamic terrorist groups such as ISIS could exploit the capabilities and knowledge of Latin American smuggling networks to infiltrate the U.S. through Mexico and possibly bring in weapons of mass destruction.

The general, in October 2014, acknowledged that illegal drugs from South America move “through West Africa, up the Maghreb and into Western Europe,” adding that ISIS enemy al Qaeda and its affiliates take “a lot of money to allow it to flow.”

According to the alleged author of the Dabiq op-ed article, kidnapped British photojournalist John Cantlie, ISIS could smuggle a nuke into the U.S. by using the same route and reversing the flow— moving the nuke from West Africa into South America, from where it could be transported into the United States through Mexico.

“Let me throw a hypothetical operation onto the table,” Cantlie wrote in the article entitled “The Perfect Storm.” “The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wilāyah [province] in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region.” He addded:

The weapon is then transported over land until it makes it to Libya, where the mujāhidīn [fighters] move it south to Nigeria. Drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible.The nuke and accompanying mujāhidīn arrive on the shorelines of South America and are transported through the porous borders of Central America before arriving in Mexico and up to the border with the United States.

“From there it’s just a quick hop through a smuggling tunnel and hey presto, they’re mingling with another 12 million ‘illegal’ aliens in America with a nuclear bomb in the trunk of their car,” he also wrote.

If not a nuke, ISIS could easily smuggle in “a few thousand tons of ammonium nitrate explosive” that is easy to manufacture, said the article.

Cantlie wrote that ISIS, which started as a movement in Iraq, has suddenly morphed into a global phenomenon that the West and the democratic world as a whole is ill-prepared to handle.

He said that Boko Haram controls most of Nigeria, home to “an exhausted and smashed national army that is now in a virtual state of collapse”.

While testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee in March, Gen. Kelly noted, “Last year, ISIS adherents posted discussions on social media calling for the infiltration of the U.S. southern border. Thankfully, we have not yet seen evidence of this occurring, but I am deeply concerned that smuggling networks are a vulnerability that terrorists could seek to exploit.”

“While there is not yet any indication that the criminal networks involved in human and drug trafficking are interested in supporting the efforts of terrorist groups, these networks could unwittingly, or even wittingly, facilitate the movement of terrorist operatives or weapons of mass destruction toward our borders, potentially undetected and almost completely unrestricted,” he added.

The general, speaking at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. in October 2014, warned that Latin American drug cartels were working with jihadist groups in West Africa, namely Sunni group Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and its affiliates.

To the left and too many rinos keeping our borders open for illegals to enter is more important than protecting us from a nuke.

U.S. In Talks To Extend Travel Restriction On Taliban 5







U.S. In Talks To Extend Travel Restriction On Taliban 5...Qatar extended the travel ban for Obama’s Gitmo Taliban Dream Team today.

FOX News

Qatar has agreed to temporarily extend travel bans on five senior Taliban leaders released last year from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a senior U.S. official said on Sunday.

The official said the ban would remain in place until diplomatic talks for a longer-term solution are completed. The restrictions had been due to expire on Monday under a May 2014 exchange for Bergdahl. U.S. officials said Friday the Obama administration was closing in on an agreement with Qatar to extend the restrictions for six months that could be announced this weekend. It was not immediately clear why that agreement had not been finalized.

The official said the U.S. remains in “close contact” with Qatari authorities “to make sure these individuals do not pose a threat to the United States.” As a result of the talks to date, Qatar “has agreed to maintain the current restrictive conditions on these individuals as we continue these discussions,” the official said.

The official said the former detainees are all currently in Qatar and remain subject to the travel ban and extensive monitoring. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly speak to the matter.


Afghan officials worried the Taliban leaders released by Barack Obama will rejoin the battle against the government.

One former Gitmo prisoner, Taliban leader Noorullah Noori, promised to return to Afghanistan and fight the Americans after his arrival in Qatar.

Security Threat Level Upped at Military Bases for 1st Time Since 2011

Jennifer Griffin reported that the force protection level has been increased to ForceCom Bravo, which is the highest that the threat level

The increase was ordered by the head of U.S. Northern Command due to unspecified terror threats. Spokespersons for the Department of Defense and Northern Command say that this was a prudent measure.

The increased security threat level will mean more guards at bases. It will also mean longer lines outside of bases, since two forms of ID will be required to enter.

Canadian judge frees former teen terrorist who killed US Army medic


Canadian judge frees former teen terrorist who killed US Army medic

FOX News

A former teen terrorist who killed a U.S. Army Delta Force medic in Afghanistan in 2002 was ordered released Thursday by a Canadian judge who said the former Guantanamo Bay detainee once sentenced to 40 years in prison has changed his jihadist ways.


Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen who was just 15 when he threw the grenade that killed U.S. Army medic Christopher Speer in Afghanistan during a 2002 firefight, was ordered freed on bail by an Edmonton appeals judge. Now 28, Khadr claims to be a different person from the young Al Qaeda follower who admitted killing Speer, but critics say he has not paid the price.

“Omar Khadr is a convicted Al Qaeda terrorist, guilty of war crimes.”

– Ezra Levant, author

“Omar Khadr is a convicted Al Qaeda terrorist, guilty of war crimes,” Ezra Levant, author of “The Enemy Within: Terror, Lies, and the Whitewashing of Omar Khadr,” told FoxNews.com. “He murdered a U.S. medic in cold blood. A jury sentenced him to 40 years in prison, but President Obama offered him a plea deal for just eight years, and now parole will reduce that further. This isn’t sufficient, especially given that Khadr has never publicly renounced terrorism or Al Qaeda, or his own father’s terrorism.”

Counterterrorism Officials on Garland Shooters: ‘Hundreds if Not Thousands’ like Them



Counterterrorism Officials on Garland Shooters: ‘Hundreds if Not Thousands’ like Them


Obama WH Claims Garland Attack Looks Like “Lone Wolf Attack”, While Officials Warn “Hundreds, If Not Thousands” Of Potential Jihadists


Breitbart


FBI and intelligence community officials are openly admitting how difficult it has become to track the thousands of potential American jihadists on social media.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), who serves as chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said in a recent hearing that there are “thousands” of people living in the U.S. who have promoted extremist groups, such as the Islamic State, on social media pages, the Associated Press reports.

The new concerns about tracking social media stem from a Sunday jihadist attack at a “Draw Muhammad” free speech event in Garland, Texas, where two gunmen armed with AK47s attempted to commit mass murder against the event’s attendees. Luckily, a skilled security officer neutralized the two men, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, before they could do any real harm.

There are “hundreds, if not thousands,” of people like Simpson and Soofi whom the intelligence community are attempting to track, explained Don Borelli, a 25-year veteran in FBI terrorism investigations, to an Arizona NBC affiliate.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the intelligence community has opened up an investigation into the Islamic State’s claim that it ordered the attack.

“This is consistent with what has been previously described as a lone-wolf attack,” Earnest told reporters. “Essentially you have two individuals that don’t appear to be part of a broader conspiracy, and identifying those individuals and keeping tabs on them is difficult work,” he added.

Megyn Kelly: If ‘drawing Muhammad’ at a private function is too provocative, the terrorists are Winning!!!!





Megyn Kelly has been pretty fired up this week about the Texas shooting outside a “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest. She clashed with Bill O’Reilly and has stood pretty firm on the free speech issue.

And Kelly opened her show last night by scolding the “rush to condemn the event organizers” with “nary a mention of the radical Islamists who sought to murder them over a cartoon.”

She reiterated that free speech is protected, “no matter how abhorrent,” and you don’t have to endorse it to defend it. And with all the focus on scolding Pamela Geller‘s group, Kelly said, “if this is where American sentiment stands on this, then the jihadis are officially winning.”


Kelly even accused the media of drawing a “moral equivalence” between people who do offensive things and people who kill over those offensive things. She brought on Eugene Volokh to continue emphasizing the point, going after the media and CNN’s Chris Cuomo in particular.

2 Muslim Terrorists Killed, Police Officer Shot ...Officer Shot Released From Hospital at ‘Draw Muhammad’ Event In Garland, TX






This was an event sponsored by Pamela Geller to show people had the right to draw Muhammad if they wanted to.

2 Muslim Terrorists Killed, Police Officer Shot ...Officer Shot Released From Hospital at ‘Draw Muhammad’ Event In Garland, TX

"This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?" Pamela Geller, the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, wrote on her website. "The war is here."

Channel 8 Reporter in Dallas, TX.


WFAA reporter John Panicker was covering the event

Jobin Panicker @jobinpnews

#BREAKING Overhearing Officer. "This was a direct attack, they (suspects) were ready to go."


And this from CNN

Two men were shot in a parking lot outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland Sunday afternoon, SWAT officials told News 8.

Those men possibly had explosives on them, SWAT officials said. Everyone at the center, which was hosting a Muhammad Art exhibit, was told to find a safe place inside the building.

SWAT members were at the scene for the event.

The terrorists drove up to the Culwell Event Center in North Garland, got out of their car and began shooting just as the "Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest" inside was coming to an end, Garland police spokesman Joe Harn said.

An unarmed security guard was shot in the leg. He was later treated and released from a hospital.

Police who were helping with security at the event fired back, killing both gunmen.

"The first suspect was shot immediately," Garland Mayor Douglas Athas told CNN. "The second suspect was wounded and reached for his backpack. He was shot again."

The gunmen's identities weren't immediately released.

"We have no other indication that anyone else was involved," Athas said.

FBI and local officials were checking on the gunmen's vehicle for explosives and the area around the center was blocked off.

Surrounding businesses, including a Walmart, were evacuated, as were attendees from the Curtis Culwell Center.

There is no immediate threat to the area, police said late Sunday night.

The check for explosives was a precautionary measure and could take some time.

"It's a very slow, tedious operation that goes on," Harn said.

Message from Garland, Texas to Baltimore, Maryland



Message from Garland, Texas to Baltimore, Maryland


A clear and timely message to Baltimore, Maryland from Garland, Texas last night: police officers, risking their lives to do their jobs, keep civilian society safe.

Proven countless times and now once again: Civilian lives are safer, thanks to thousands of police forces across America, whose intent is ‘To Serve and Protect’.

“Two gunmen were killed by police Sunday night after they opened fire wounding a security officer at a Texas art competition featuring works depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad, a practice that is strictly forbidden in Islam.” (Matthew Vadum, May 4, 2015)

“The fact the event was attacked is proof that free speech needs protection in America, event organizer and author Robert Spencer told this writer in a late-night telephone interview.”

Before political bureaucrats at Homeland Security could even get their usual ‘no connection to terrorism’ meme off the ground through the mainstream media, one of the two gunmen was identified as Elton Simpson, who was convicted of lying to federal agents about traveling to Africa five years ago - but a judge ruled it could not be proved that he was going to join a terror group. (Daily Mail, May 4, 2015).

A former terror suspect has been named as one of the gunmen shot dead by police after two attackers blasted an unarmed security guard in the ankle during an anti-Islam art contest in Texas on Sunday night.


“Two heavily-armed men, who are believed to have been carrying explosives, were killed by police after opening fire outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Dallas, at around 7pm during a controversial event where caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad were being displayed.

“A senior FBI official has identified one of the men as Elton Simpson, who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to ABC News.

“After his identity emerged, FBI agents and a bomb squad swarmed Simpson’s apartment in north Phoenix, Arizona and used a robot to carry out the first sweep of his home, the channel reported. The second gunman’s identity is not yet known.

“Ahead of the attack on Sunday evening, several Twitter messages were sent out, and authorities believe Simpson was behind them. The last one was shared just half an hour before the attack.

“Followers of ISIS had been calling for an attack online for more than a week after learning that the competition in Garland would feature a ‘draw Muhammad’ art contest, with a prize of $10,000 for the best caricature.

“After the attack, the SITE Intelligence Group reported that an Islamic State fighter claimed on Twitter that the shooting was carried out by two pro-ISIS individuals.



“In a series of tweets and links, a jihadist named as Abu Hussain AlBritani, which SITE said was British IS fighter Junaid Hussain, claimed that ‘2 of our brothers just opened fire’ at the Prophet Muhammad exhibition in Texas.


‘They Thought They Was Safe In Texas From The Soldiers of The Islamic State,’ added the tweet.”


They were “safe in Texas” and will be, as long as lib-left politicians of the day allow police forces to do their job and sworn commitment to protect the public.


What happened in Garland last night underlines how the riots in Baltimore—which at heart seek to replace police forces with the military-styled one coveted by President Barack Obama—have ties to terrorism. The Nation of Islam—personally thanked by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who have thrown in with the Bloods and the Crips are masquerading as the ‘good guys’ fighting the ‘bad guys’ (police).

Meanwhile, the one hash-tag that should dominate the digital world should be the one that reads: #copssavecivilianlives.

US, Qatar launch talks on fate of Taliban leaders swapped for Bergdahl



US, Qatar launch talks on fate of Taliban leaders swapped for Bergdahl

Stars and Stripes

U.S. and Qatari officials began talks Wednesday about extending security assurances for five senior Taliban members who were released from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and whose transfer to Qatar triggered an outcry on Capitol Hill.

The talks could lead to an extension of at least some aspects of a one-year arrangement that required Qatar to keep the former prisoners under supervision and ban them from leaving. They could also lead to the former detainees being transferred to another country, according to individuals familiar with the discussions. The agreement expires at the end of May.

In the talks, being held in Doha, the Qatari capital, administration officials presented a number of options for the future status of the aging Taliban leaders, who live with their families on a special compound as guests of the tiny Persian Gulf nation.

The approaching end of the agreement has sparked new ire among lawmakers still angry about the transfer.


"These are dangerous terrorists who, by the Administration's own admission, should not be allowed to return to Afghanistan," Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said in a statement. "It is troubling then that the White House has waited this long to begin deliberation on how to prevent that."

The administration transferred the men in May 2014 in exchange for the release of Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier who was held captive in Pakistan by the Taliban and its allies for almost five years after leaving his base in eastern Afghanistan. In March, the army charged Bergdahl with desertion.

Under the existing deal, the men's telephone and electronic communications have been monitored and they have been prohibited from fundraising or militant incitement.

Jimmy Carter Will Meet With Hamas (they are terrorists) In Gaza This Week


Former U.S. Democratic President Jimmy Carter will travel to the Gaza Strip on Thursday and meet with officials from Hamas, the Jihadist terror organization that rules the Palestinian territory.

“Carter will arrive in Gaza on Thursday through the [Israeli-controlled] Erez border crossing to meet with leading Hamas officials,” a Palestinian security spokesperson told Anadolu Agency, a news outlet based in Turkey.

Carter, 90, will meet with the Hamas military chief Ismail Haneya, Xinhua reports.

He will attempt to seek reconciliation between Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah, the latter which rules the Palestinian areas of the West Bank. Carter has urged Saudi officials to help with his mediation efforts.

“Carter has lately met with prominent Saudi officials and urged their intervention to achieve reconciliation between Palestinian factions, which was welcomed by Riyadh,” a Hamas spokesperson told Anadolu Agency. “The Saudi government has begun preparations for mediation between the two movements to reach a ‘Mecca II’ agreement,” the spokesperson added.

Carter plans to arrive in the region on Thursday for a 3-day tour of Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. His request to meet with Israel’s President and Prime Minister was denied. In refusing to meet with the 39th U.S. President, both offices cited his anti-Israel, pro-Hamas sentiments.

Muslim Man Who Trained With ISIS, And Returned To U.S. To Carry Out Attacks, Arrested In Ohio



ISIS-trained Ohio man was ordered to attack US


New York Post


Man Who Trained With ISIS, And Returned To U.S. To Carry Out Attacks, Arrested In Ohio


An Ohio man who left the US a year ago to train with Islamic State jihadists was nabbed by the feds Thursday for allegedly plotting to unleash terror in the country, authorities said.

Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, 23, of Columbus, left in April 2014 — two months after becoming a naturalized citizen — to train and fight with the extremists in Syria, the Justice Department said, ABC News reported.

Islamic State wannabe Mohamud — who has posted the group’s propaganda online — was charged with providing material support to al Nusrah, an al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, according to the feds.

The jihadists trained him in shooting, home break-ins, explosives and hand-to-hand combat, authorities said. He was then ordered to return to the US and commit a terror act, an indictment said.

"Mohamud talked about doing something big in the United States,” the indictment said. “He wanted to go to a military base in Texas and kill three or four American soldiers execution style.”

Mohamud, who was arrested in February on state charges, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of attempting to provide and providing material support to terrorists, one count of attempting to provide and providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and one count of making false statements to the FBI.

His attorney, Sam Shamansky, said Mohamud will enter a not-guilty plea, the Associated Press reported.



Wild Thing's comment.........

Why did they allow him to come back into our country????? On the video they say he just became a citizen of the USA one year ago then he left right after that to get training from ISIS, then he came back to the USA to attempt to do attacks on our country.

Western radicals who support terrorists present complex danger



Western radicals who support terrorists present complex danger

Stars and Stripes


PITTSBURGH (Tribune News Service) — A thin, bespectacled 20-year-old Californian stepped aboard Amtrak bus 8914 in Seattle, bound for Vancouver, as the temperature fell and the wind rose off the dark, cold Pacific Ocean.

The FBI watched.

Two hours and 20 minutes later, about 11:40 p.m. March 16, 2014, the bus reached the border and FBI agents arrested Nicholas Michael Teausant. He was taken into custody about 6,500 miles from his intended destination: the self-declared caliphate of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, according to a criminal complaint.

Ten months later, Turkish authorities denied entry to Air Force veteran Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, 47, of New Jersey, an avionics technician who served from 1986 to 1990. Suspecting he intended to cross the border into Syria, they put him on a flight back to Cairo, his home during the previous year. Egyptian authorities deported him to the United States.

He landed in New York on Jan. 15, where the FBI arrested him.

The U.S. Attorney's Office charged both men with attempting to provide material support — in these cases, themselves — to a foreign terrorist organization. Pugh pleaded not guilty March 18. Teausant is awaiting a court-ordered mental health evaluation.

On Friday, the FBI arrested Keonna Thomas, 30, of Philadelphia when she bought a plane ticket to Spain — the first leg in a journey the FBI said would have ended in the ISIS-held territory she had been tweeting in support of for more than a year.

As many as 150 Americans have joined or tried to join ISIS, the FBI estimates, a crime punishable by up to 15 years in prison, longer if anyone is killed. Other Americans — it's impossible to say how many — sympathize with the group, and some of them will try to join the self-declared caliphate, counterterrorism experts say.

The federal government has arrested and charged more than 20 people who returned to the United States after joining terrorist groups abroad, but others have returned unnoticed, such as the man behind the failed Times Square bombing in 2010.

“Do we keep the lid on the pressure cooker at home, or do we let them go and face possible blowback?” asked Clint Watts, a former FBI agent and former executive officer of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.

ISIS distinguished itself from al-Qaida by focusing on maintaining and expanding its territorial gains. While the stateless al-Qaida plots against Western countries, ISIS in 2014 declared its territory a caliphate, a strict theocracy whose existence lies at the heart of the terror group's identity.

The group's recruiters and online supporters emphasize the scriptural duty of Muslims to live under the flag of a caliph — in this case, the black banner of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“If your country don't allow you to leave land of (nonbelievers) to perform jihad or to live under the #khilafah then start jihad in the land of the (nonbelievers),” reads a March 19 tweet by an account holder named Abu Abdullah Britani, a nom de guerre identifying the person as British.

Jake Bilardi, a teenager who ISIS said blew himself up in a suicide bombing in Ramadi, Iraq, had planned a string of bombings in his native Melbourne as his “Plan B” if he couldn't make it to Syria, according to a lengthy blog post purportedly written by him.

Teausant, the Californian arrested on his way to Canada, said in a videotaped interview with The Sacramento Bee that he “wasn't planning on coming back to the United States at all.”

He envisioned two outcomes: “I was going to stay fighting with the Syrians until they got their freedom, or I might die.”

Teausant planned his trip with a man who turned out to be an FBI informant. According to the criminal complaint, the informant floated the idea of helping other homegrown jihadists join ISIS.

“Teausant rejected the idea of returning to the United States, stating that, ‘My designs have me staying there (in Syria) and being on every news station in the world,' ” the complaint states.

Letting him go would have presented a grave risk.

In his jailhouse interview, Teausant displayed none of the frothing vitriol one might expect from a battle-ready jihadi. But enough time spent in the training camps and ideological echo chamber of ISIS — where planning bombings, crucifixions and murder are routine — might have changed that.

“A lot of these people who become self-radicalized don't have the sort of experience and full understanding of how to carry out these attacks,” said Orlandrew Danzell, a professor at the Tom Ridge School of Intelligence Studies and Information Sciences at Mercyhurst University.

“Allowing them to actually go to these training camps is probably the worst outcome because some of them will make it back,” Danzell said. “Not everyone is going to die.”

Case in point: Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen, received training in explosives in Pakistan before returning to the United States and trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square in 2010. He was sentenced to life in prison.

Two years later, Moner Mohammad Abusalha of Florida fought with al-Qaida affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria, returned to the United States, then left again for Syria, where in 2014 he became the first American suicide bomber to die in that country, according to “When Jihadis Come Marching Home,” a RAND Corp. study.

“These people tend to go through other countries,” such as when Somali-Americans left to fight with al-Qaida affiliate al-Shabab, Danzell said.

The United States doesn't run institutional jihadist rehabilitation programs like those in Britain, Denmark and other countries. As many as 5,000 ISIS recruits came from Western European countries, more than 30 times the number from the United States, according to the International Center in London.

“Either we're going to have to watch these people forever or we're going to let them go and roll the dice and hope they don't (come back and) conduct an attack at home,” Watts, a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, said during an online forum about ISIS in March. “The other option is let them go and maybe they get killed on the battlefield.”

Or maybe they don't.

“You are betting on the survivability of these people,” Danzell said. “Some of them may survive and return to the homeland fully radicalized.”

Robert Reich: A Few Hundred People Joining ISIS Not Really a ‘Big Deal’

In the grand scheme of things, a few hundred people joining up with Islamic State forces is “not a big deal,” economist Robert Reich said Friday evening on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show.

“We’ve covered it during the headline of all these westerners joining ISIS. I don’t understand that,” host Larry Wilmore said to his panel. “You know, we have the teen girls and all this. Why are people trying to join ISIS? What’s going on?”

And Reich’s explanation:

I think that there are not that many trying to join ISIS and you say all these European, all these Americans. Out of 600 million Europeans and Americans you’ve got, what, 400, 800 trying to join ISIS? This is not a big deal. The press is making it a big deal and the more we talk about it, the more people are gonna go.

ISIS Threatens US Service Members



Terrorists connected to ISIS released personal information of over 100 military members , urged sympathizers to kill them.

From New York Times


In a new online threat to American military personnel, the Islamic State has called on its members and sympathizers in the United States to kill 100 service members whose names, photos and purported addresses it posted on a website.

The group said that the personnel had participated in efforts to defeat it in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere.

Defense Department and F.B.I. officials said that they were aware of the website and were investigating the posting.

It does not appear that the information had been hacked from government servers. One Defense Department official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that most of the information could be found in public records, residential address search sites and social media.

The officials said the list appears to be drawn from personnel who have appeared in news articles about airstrikes on the militant group.

Some of the names also appear to be drawn from the Defense Department’s own official reports on the campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.

‘Straight-A’ teen girls suspected of fleeing UK to join ISIS

Three teenage girls from the UK who are “straight-A students” have fled their homes and are feared to be on their way to shack up with ISIS thugs in Syria, authorities said.

Scotland Yard urged the public Friday to help them search for Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and a third unnamed 15-year-old after they left their homes in east London on Tuesday morning.

“We are extremely concerned for the safety of these young girls and would urge anyone with information to come forward and speak to police,” Counter terrorism commander Richard Walton said in a statement. “Our priority is the safe return of these girls to their families.”

Hamas On Campus...At U.C. Davis, Students for Palestine chant "Allahu Akbar," endorse terrorism



At U.C. Davis, Students for Palestine chant "Allahu Akbar," endorse terrorism


Anti-Israel activists at the University of California, Davis heckled Jewish students and shouted “Allahhu Akbar” at them during a vote last week on a resolution endorsing a boycott of the Jewish state, according to video of the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The commotion erupted late Thursday evening as pro-Israel students attempted to counter a student government resolution to divest from Israel as part of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Activists waving Palestinian flags shouted at the Jewish and pro-Israel students as they left the meeting room ahead of an eight to two vote in favor of the divestment resolution, which is part of a larger movement by anti-Israel groups to attack Israel and pro-Israel students on campus.

“Allahhu Akhbar!” a large group of activists shouted in unison as the pro-Israel students filed out of U.C. Davis’ meeting room, according to video provided by a member of Aggies for Israel, a pro-Israel student group at Davis.


The pro-Hamas group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), unknown vandals spray-painted swastikas on a fraternity house belonging to the Jewish AEPi organization.

Additionally, Azka Fayyaz, a member of the U.C. Davis student senate, posted on her Facebook page a triumphant message following the vote: “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis.”

NBC/WSJ Poll: Majority of Americans Approve of CIA’s “Harsh Interrogation” Methods Used Against Al-Qaeda, Just 28% Oppose



NBC/WSJ Poll: Majority of Americans Approve of CIA’s “Harsh Interrogation” Methods Used Against Al-Qaeda, Just 28% Oppose


Including a plurality of Americans (45%-28%) who want the CIA to resume the program killed by Obama.

Most Americans don’t object to the CIA’s interrogation techniques that some call torture, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

After being told the CIA used “harsh interrogation practices on suspected terrorists,” 51% of those surveyed said the practices were “acceptable under the circumstances.” Only 28% said the interrogations were wrong and 20% said they didn’t have an opinion.

President Barack Obama ended the practice, known legally as “enhanced interrogation”, early in his White House tenure. But 45% of those polled said the CIA should continue to use them, while just 28% said they are wrong and should not be used.

On Christmas Day Taliban Bombs US Base in Kabul






On Christmas Day Taliban Bombs US Base in Kabul


Two Taliban rockets landed inside the American embassy compound in Kabul early on Christmas day, in a reminder that Afghanistan remains riddled with insecurity even as foreigners marked the festive season.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which included another strike in the city, but caused no casualties.

“At approximately 6:40 local time in Kabul, approximately two rounds of indirect fire impacted the US Embassy compound,” a statement from the embassy said. “All Americans are accounted for and no injuries were sustained.

“The Embassy continues to investigate the attack.”

Rocket strikes on the capital have been rare in recent years but 2013 has been marked by a string of suicide attacks on high-profile targets.

Exclusive: FBI Video Shows Al Qaeda in Kentucky Handling Heavy Weapons


More World News from ABC


Exclusive: FBI Video Shows Al Qaeda in Kentucky Handling Heavy Weapons


An al Qaeda-linked terrorist, who was resettled in the U.S. as an Iraq War refugee after allegedly killing American soldiers, was caught on camera in Kentucky handling heavy weapons that the FBI said he believed would be sent to insurgents back in Iraq.

The 2010 video, obtained exclusively by ABC News, was part of a broader ABC News investigation into the flawed refugee vetting program, which officials said may have let “dozens” of terrorists into the country.

In the video, Waad Ramadan Alwan is seen expertly field stripping what the FBI identified as a Russian PKM machine gun. Other still images provided by the FBI from hours-worth of surveillance footage show Alwan and an accomplice, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, handling a Stinger missile launcher and a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher.

An FBI agent assigned to the sting operation that captured the video told ABC News that Alwan had bragged to an informant about killing American soldiers in Iraq. “He said he had them ‘for lunch and dinner,’” FBI Louisville Supervisory Special Agent Tim Beam said.

The FBI said that beyond sending the arms back to extremists in Iraq, Alwan spoke of targeting a specific American soldier in the U.S. and possibly attacking other homeland targets.

The weapons seen in the video, however, were supplied by the FBI after being rendered inoperable. Alwan and Hammadi were arrested in 2011 and later pleaded guilty to terror-related crimes.

Ft. Hood Terrorist Nidal Hasan Uses Court Appearance To Declare His Support For The Taliban




Ft. Hood Jihadist Nidal Hasan Uses Court Appearance To Declare His Support For The Taliban…


FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Army psychiatrist charged in the mass shooting at Fort Hood asked pointed questions about religion and used several opportunities Wednesday to declare his support for the Taliban and a fellow American-born Muslim who killed a U.S. soldier, as he was allowed to zero in on potential jurors during the second day of jury selection.

Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is serving as his own attorney in his military murder trial, participated as nine of the remaining 14 Army officers in the group of potential jurors were questioned individually.

Hasan told one colonel that Abdulhakim Muhammad, sentenced to life in prison for the June 2009 fatal shooting of a soldier outside a Little Rock, Arkansas, military recruiting station, was his “brother and friend.” Muhammad, who converted to Islam in college, has told The Associated Press that the shootings were an act of war on the U.S.

In answering Hasan’s questions based on jury questionnaires they filled out about a year ago, several potential jurors said they had negative views of Muslims, the Quran or Shariah, the Islamic legal and religious code. But they said they could put aside those views and only consider evidence in the case — including a colonel asked by Hasan if “the fact that I do believe the Quran justifies killing” would prevent him from being a fair juror.

Osborn has denied his “defense of others” strategy, which must show that killing was necessary to prevent the immediate harm or death of others. The judge has barred him from telling jurors that he shot U.S. troops because he believed they were an imminent threat to Taliban leaders in Afghanistan.

Threat To Bomb Courthouse Near Fort Hood Unless Officials Meet Demands Of Defendant Nidal Hassan



Threat To Bomb Courthouse Near Fort Hood Unless Officials Meet Demands Of Defendant Nidal Hassan

BELTON, Texas (AP) — Someone threatened to bomb a county courthouse near Fort Hood unless officials met the “demands” of the Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 shooting rampage on the Texas Army post, a sheriff said Wednesday.

After the Wednesday morning call that mentioned Maj. Nidal Hasan, law officers evacuated the historic courthouse and Bell County Justice Center, but found nothing after searching extensively with bomb-sniffing dogs, Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange said. The jail was put on lockdown.

Employees were allowed back inside the buildings a few hours later. The time that the caller said the bomb would explode at the courthouse had long expired, said city of Belton spokesman Paul Romer.

Bell County has a contract with nearby Fort Hood to house all of its defendants, including Hasan, because the Army post does not have holding facilities.

Governor Cuomo Says Boston Bombing Part of ‘New Normal’ - so we are to just accept bombings from Muslims???


Governor Cuomo Says Boston Bombing Part of ‘New Normal’

Source

Mayor Michael Bloomberg may have canceled his morning radio appearance today in response to the ongoing manhunt for a suspect involved in Monday’s deadly bombing attack on the Boston Marathon, but another top New York official, Governor Andrew Cuomo, scheduled his own radio interview on The Capitol Pressroom soon after. Mr. Cuomo directly addressed the high-profile situation in the Bay State by employing a phrase he previously used to describe climate change in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy: “the new normal.”

“It’s a terrible situation in Boston. And, unfortunately, … one gets the sense that this is more reflective of the ‘new normal,’ if you will,” he explained. “So much of society is changing so rapidly. We talk about a ‘new normal’ when it comes t0 climate change and adjusting to a change in the weather patterns. ‘New normal’ when it comes to public security in a post-9/11 world. Where these random acts of violence, which at one time were implausible, now seem all-too-frequent.”

Chaos descends on Cambridge, Watertown; MIT police officer shot and killed


Police Officer Shot And Killed On MIT Campus Near Boston, Car Jacking, explosives police chase to Watertown, MA.

WATERTOWN — A scene of chaos descended on Cambridge and Watertown late Thursday night and early Friday morning, as police confirmed an MIT police officer was shot and killed, and an apparent carjacking led police on a wild chase into Watertown.

Witnesses in Watertown said they heard explosions. Police officers were screaming about improvised explosive devices. Authorities would not comment on whether the events were connected to Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing. At least one of the suspects in Watertown appeared to be a man in his 20s.

FBI agents were on the scene in Watertown.

“We are aware of the situation, we are being involved, and we are monitoring,” said an FBI representative who requested anonymity because of not being authorized to speak publicly. The FBI source said early Friday it is “too early to speculate” on a relation to the Marathon bombing.

Dozens of police officers descended on Watertown Square after midnight.

“This is still extremely dangerous,” an FBI agent said. The Cambridge bomb squad arrived in Watertown shortly after 1:30 a.m.

A man in handcuffs was being questioned by the FBI in the back of an ambulance.

At Arsenal Court and Arsenal Street in Watertown, an officer bellowed: “Ya gotta get outta here. There’s an active shooter here with an active explosive. Go!”

Peter Jennings, 33, said he was sleeping just before 1 a.m. in his home on Prentiss Street in Watertown when he was awakened by a huge boom.

“It sounded like a stick of dynamite went off,” he said. “I looked out the window, and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen – blue light after blue light after blue light.”

He said more than three dozen emergency vehicles with sirens blaring were heading down Rt. 16 West. He went to the end of his street, where some neighbors were gathering. The air, he said, smelled like “at the end of a fireworks show, like a wick smell.”

“I had a bad feeling because of what happened on Monday,” he said.

John Antonucci’s 79-year-old mother called him hysterical from her home in Laurel Street. She was heard about five gun shots and didn’t know what to do.

“She was saying they’re running down the street shooting,” Antonucci said standing outside if yellow police tape. “She was crying so hard I couldn’t understand what she was talking about.”

So he told her: Stay inside the house.

Police were demanding that cellphones be turned off.

The officer, who has not been identified, was shot multiple times at 10:48 p.m., according to the Middlesex district attorney’s office. No one else was hurt, and no ­arrests had been made by early Friday.

The manhunt fanned out from ­Kendall Square over an area that has endured a tragic and tumultuous week, in the aftermath of the fatal explosions at Monday’s Boston Marathon. There was no report of a connection between the two events, but the swarm of sirens and circling helicopters rattled a region already on edge.

Police from several agencies were conducting a manhunt for the gunman across the school campus and on the T’s Red Line, according to authorities.

MIT and Cambridge police responded to a report of shots fired at 10:48 p.m. Thursday near Main and Vassar streets, according to the university.

Police officers and canine units swept the campus, and a big swath of Vassar Street was blocked.

The university issued an alert to students and faculty to remain inside.

An eerie quiet descended on the campus as teams of ­police officers combed the campus block by block. SWAT teams were present.

Police checked bushes and alleys and yanked on doors.

Officers from the MIT and Harvard departments, as well as Cambridge and State Police, were present.

Siddhartha Varshney was walking home from dinner with two friends when they were stopped at the police cordon.

“Initially, we thought they had caught the suspect in the bombing,” the 28-year-old said. But they then learned it was a shooting involving an MIT officer.

“Well, I — honestly — I mean, I can’t think what I make of it. The situation is a little tense,” he said. “And I hope that whoever he is gets caught.”

Few seemed to be out on the campus at the time of the shooting. One professor, standing feet from the police tape, said he came out of his office when he heard a commotion of sirens and saw ­police lights.

At around midnight, a frantic scene was unfolding at Massachusetts General Hospital, where a dozen police cars arrived with sirens on and several women were brought in by police, looking deeply ­upset.

Dozens of officers and National Guard members are in Watertown, where television outlets report that gunfire and explosions have been heard. A helicopter is circling overhead.

Authorities early Friday were calling for somebody to get on the ground and put their hands up and a loud thud was heard after someone shouted "fire in the hole."

Reporters are being told to move away from the scene. A police officer told a reporter: "If you want to live, turn off your cell phone."

Earlier Thursday night a campus police officer was shot and killed at MIT and authorities were searching for the person responsible.

3 dead and more than 130 injured ini Terrorist Attack at Boston Marathon


Source tells FoxNews.com an apartment in a Boston suburb is being searched in connection with twin bomb blasts near Boston Marathon finish line Monday, as a senior White House official tells Fox News the blasts are believed to be an act of terrorism. The blasts left at least 3 dead and more than 130 injured.

FOX News


The deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon that killed at least three and injured at least 144 is believed to be an act of terrorism, senior White House officials told Fox News.

Two explosions tore through the finish line of the world-famous race just before 3 p.m., going off simultaneously as throngs of onlookers watched runners complete the 26.2-mile trek. The timing of the blasts immediately sparked suspicions of a deliberate act.

“When multiple devices go off, that’s an act of terrorism,” a senior administration official told Fox News, just moments after President Obama delivered a statement to the nation and did not use the word “terror.”

While the White House does in fact believe terrorism was at play, lawmakers were increasingly reaching the same conclusion.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, reportedly said her understanding it “that it’s a terrorist incident.”

Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., top Republican on that committee, also said that “as the evidence mounts that this was a terrorist attack, our intelligence and law enforcement agencies must do whatever is necessary to find and interrogate those responsible so we can prevent similar attacks."

Authorities in New York, meanwhile, are deploying counter-terrorism vehicles around landmark sites in Manhattan, including prominent hotels, according to the New York City Police Department.

Nearly 25,000 people, including runners from around the world, competed in Boston's celebrated 26.2-mile race, attracting huge throngs of onlookers, especially near the finish line.

Doctors amputate limbs as marathon celebration turns to carnage



Doctors amputate limbs as marathon celebration turns to carnage


The full horror of Monday's bomb attacks in Boston was reflected in emergency rooms across the city as doctors were forced to perform amputations and treat injuries normally expected on a battlefield.

Around 11 p.m. ET, at least 144 people were reported to have been taken to hospital with wounds sustained from the blasts that brought terror and chaos to the city's annual marathon race.

Three people, including an eight-year-old boy, were killed, while at least 17 people are reported to be in a critical condition.

Images in the immediate aftermath showed people being carried away on stretchers -- one man in a wheelchair had blood all over his face and legs.

While many patients were treated for cuts and scrapes, doctors have also been "pulling ball bearings out of people in the emergency room," suggesting the bombs were designed to propel shrapnel, according to one terrorism expert briefed on the Boston blasts, though CNN is yet to confirm this.

Medical teams have also carried out at least 10 amputations and treated many leg injuries, suggesting the device was low to the ground, according to CNN's Deborah Feyerick.

Among the 28 people taken to the city's Brigham and Women's Hospital, the most common types of injuries are to the bone and tissue, hospital spokesman Tom Langford told CNN.

He said nine of those patients have potentially limb-threatening wounds. A 3-year-old victim was transferred to Boston Children's Hospital for treatment.

Amputated limbs


Dr. Peter Fagenholz, a trauma surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, told reporters he treated many of the 29 patients who arrived at the hospital for shrapnel wounds.

"Many of the victims were hit with "a lot of small, metal debris," he said.

"Some people have asked already whether they were BBs or parts of bombs," he said, referring to earlier reports that ball bearings have been pulled from victims. "We can't say whether they were placed their intentionally or whether they were just part of the environment."

He said the most serious wounds "have been combined, complex lower injuries that involve blood vessels, bone and tissue." Some of the patients had to have limbs amputated, Fagenholz added.

"A number of patients will require repeat operations and serial operations over the next couple of days," he said, adding that he had been in surgery for almost 14 hours.

Describing the horror


Theresa Panter, who had been running in the marathon, described the scene as she approached the finishing line.

"When I heard the bomb and saw the reaction of the spectators, I was just alarmed. Then I was pushed back by a spectator and then a Boston Athletic official -- he grabbed a bunch of us and pushed us back. It was pretty upsetting."

Her husband, Dr. Allan Panter, was in the crowd and described how he ended up tending to people on the streets.

"I saw at least six to seven people down next to me -- they protected me from the blast. One lady expired, one gentleman lost both his limbs, his lower extremities. Most of the injuries were mainly lower extremity injuries.

"I could not figure out why the young lady had expired, I could not find any injury on her thorax."

Jordanian Islamist,Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah Cheer Boston Marathon Bombings:“Happy to See the Horror in America”


Jordanian Islamist,Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah Cheer Boston Marathon Bombings:“Happy to See the Horror in America”

Israel National News


Shortly after terror bombs exploded and murdered over 12 people at the Boston Marathon, members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah were reported to be dancing in the streets of Gaza, handing out candies to passerbys.

A number of Palestinians had danced in the street in celebration of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 on the World Trade Center and Washington resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans.

The head of an Islamic terror organization in Jordan – the Muslim Salafi group says he’s “happy to see the horror in America” after the bombing attacks in Boston.

“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack US and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.

“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said today.

A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts “carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaeda.”


AP Report about Jordanian Muslim.........


The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group said early Tuesday that he was “happy to see the horror in America” after the explosions in Boston.

“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaida-linked plot to attack U.S. and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.

“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said early Tuesday.

Al-Chalabi served seven years in prison for his part in the foiled attack. His group is outlawed in Jordan.

A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts “carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaida.” He did not give actual evidence linking al-Qaida to the bombing.

Son-In-Law of bin Laden Due in NY Court on Friday



Son-In-Law of bin Laden Due in NY Court on Friday


A son-in-law of Osama bin Laden was captured by the United States — and he has been brought to New York City, where he was to be charged with terrorism, authorities said on Friday.

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, identified by U.S. counterterrorism officials as a spokesman for al-Qaida, had been deported from Turkey to Jordan, where U.S. agents captured him, law-enforcement officials told The Wall Street Journal.


The charges stem from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon, Fox News reports.

“It has been 13 years since Abu Ghaith allegedly worked alongside Osama bin Laden in his campaign of terror, and 13 years since he allegedly took to the public airwaves, exhorting others to embrace al-Qaida's cause and warning of more terrorist attacks like the mass murder of 9/11,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement reported by Fox.

“The memory of those attacks is indelibly etched on the American psyche, and today's action is the latest example of our commitment to capturing and punishing enemies of the United States, no matter how long it takes,” Bharara said.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Eric Holder said, "No amount of distance or time will weaken our resolve to bring America's enemies to justice," Fox reports.

But holding Abu Ghaith in New York has brought criticism from Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire.

They told Fox that the Obama administration's bringing of Abu Ghaith to court in New York was wrong, "sneaky" and against the will of Congress.

As an enemy combatant, Abu Ghaith should have been sent straight to the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility in Cuba for extended questioning, Graham told Fox.


Still, Rep. Peter King, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, praised Abu Ghaith’s capture.

“Definitely, one by one, we are getting the top echelons of al-Qaida,” the Republican New York congressman said. “I give the [Obama] administration credit for this. It's steady and it's unrelenting and it's very successful.
“It goes right to the heart of al-Qaida, because it's bin Laden's son-in-law,” King added. “That's a psychological victory for us and a psychological defeat for al Qaeda.”

The FBI flew Abu Ghaith to New York last week, The Wall Street Journal reports, and he has since been talking to interrogators.

It is believed that in 2000 he traveled to Afghanistan, where he joined al-Qaida.

In late 2001, Abu Ghaith appeared on pan-Arab satellite television urging Muslims to battle the United States and warning of more Sept. 11-like attacks. In one video, he sat with bin Laden in front of a rock face in Afghanistan.

The declarations led Kuwait, where Abu Ghaith was born, to strip him of his citizenship. He was a teacher and mosque preacher there.

Last month, Abu Ghaith was arrested in Ankara, Turkey, on suspicion of having entered the country illegally with a false passport.

But Turkey decided to deport him to Kuwait via Jordan — where he was captured by U.S. authorities — instead of simply turning him over to the United States, The Journal reports.

Meanwhile, U.S. terrorism officials are working to determine whether Abu Ghaith might have been held as a prisoner in Iran, according to The Journal.

Officials believe he has been a member of al-Qaida's “management council” in Iran, a group formed in 2002 to advise bin Laden and provide support to the group's leaders in Pakistan, The Journal reports.

Abu Ghaith is expected to face many terrorism-related charges and possibly murder, which could carry the death penalty, Michael Rosensaft, a former prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan now in private practice, told Fox.

A trial will last months — if not years — Rosensaft predicted, adding that some of the evidence against Abu Ghaith will be a challenge for prosecutors to bring to court if it is classified.


White House Press Secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on Abu Ghaith’s capture during Thursday's news briefing, Fox reports.

U.S. Born Terror Boss Anwar Al-Awlaki Has Been Killed, Fox News Confirms




U.S. Born Terror Boss Anwar Al-Awlaki Has Been Killed, Fox News Confirms


FOX News

SANAA, Yemen – The U.S.-born terror mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed, Fox News confirms.

The 40-year-old, who was born in New Mexico, was linked to the 2009 Christmas Day "underwear bomber" plot -- a narrowly foiled bid to blow up a passenger jet approaching Detroit.

Awlaki was a major target for the US following the Obama administration's authorization last year of CIA and military attempts to kill him.

He was also linked to the failed Times Square bomb attempt in May last year and the November 2009 Fort Hood shooting, in which 13 people were killed by a gunman at the US Army base.

Awlaki's death follows an unsuccessful attempt on his life on May 5. In that attack, US aircraft followed and fired missiles at a truck in which the terror boss was traveling.

The attack came just days after the successful raid on a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan which killed al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden.

Osama bin Laden to al-Qaeda: 'Don't bother assassinating Joe Biden' ~ Sorry but...Lol...







Telegraph.co.uk

US officials have revealed that Osama bin Laden’s diaries contain the rather startling conclusion that he didn’t think Vice President Joe Biden was worth bumping off (hat tip: a tweet from my New York colleague Jon Swaine).

According to ProPublica, the Obama administration is briefing that Barack Obama was bin Laden’s the “top target” (no surprise there) while “military chiefs like the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the defense secretary” were also major scalps.

But Joe Biden’s scalp (hair plugs and all)? Apparently, not so much. A counterterrorism official said: “There is a note indicating that the vice president is not an important target because that position has less weight.”

To be fair, it seems that Uncle Joe was not mentioned by name and the al-Qaeda leader tied the comment to the constitutional weakness of the vice-presidency rather than the antics of the garrulous current occupant.

But one does suspect that bin Laden might have rather liked to have got Dick Cheney.

Given the manner in which the al-Qaeda chief was sent to his maker, taking out George W. Bush’s veep might have been a prudent measure. As Jay Leno quipped: “Osama bin Laden was apparently shot twice in the face. It looks like Dick Cheney may have been involved.”

OMG! Priceless.


Wow. And he wasn’t even TRYING to..!


Plugs not to be plugged .


You know you must really suck when terrorists don’t even want to off you. You know you’re a putz when you’re the VP of the USA, and a supervillain Ian Fleming could’t have dreamed up dubs you unworthy of assassination.

Realise this —Osama Bin Laden effectively ended Joe Biden’s political career from the GRAVE...!

Wow. And he wasn’t even TRYING to..!

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) : "...bin Laden's death came as a result of waterboarding"





O’Reilly Factor, guest Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said that the information that led to bin Laden’s death came as a result of waterboarding.


Thank you troops!!!! Thank you George W. Bush.

“You mentioned the fact that we obtained information several years ago, vital information about the courier for Osama. We obtained that information through waterboarding. And, fo for those who say that waterboarding doesn’t work, that it should be stopped. We got vital information that directly led us to Bin Laden.”



Wild Thing's comment........

Thank you for the interrogation techniques at club Gitmo.


Bush and Ashcroft worked their butts off to try to figure out how to deal with these monsters and up circa 1950 intelligence gathering and knock down the wall created by Gorelick.
The Dems went after Bush on intelligence at every turn...and here we are...the day of reckoning...and the Dems are bowing to Obama for the capture.

I'm so disgusted...Of course I'm glad he's dead but the POS Obama should at least give the credit to our troops and to those that deserve it.

Osama Bin Laden Killed By Navy Seals in Firefight


Osama Bin Laden Was Killed in Abbottabad – Home of Pakistan Military Academy …Update: His Home Was Across Street From Police Station & Government College



.

Osama Bin Laden Killed By Navy Seals in Firefight

ABC news


Osama Bin Laden was killed not by a drone strike, but up close during a firefight with U.S. troops. He was not living in a cave when he died, but in a million-dollar mansion with twelve-foot walls less than 100 miles from the Pakistani capital.

The U.S. had been monitoring the compound in Abbottabad for months after receiving a tip in August that Bin Laden might be seeking shelter there. He had long been said to be in the mountainous region along the Afghanistan, Pakistan border, hiding in a cave as the U.S. sought to kill him with drone strikes from above. Instead, he was in a house eight times larger than its neighbors, with walls more than 12 feet tall and valued at $1 million. The house had no phone or television and the residents burned their trash. The house had high windows and few points of access, and U.S. officials concluded it had been built to hide someone.


According to U.S. officials, two U.S. helicopters swept into the compound at 1:30 and 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Twenty to 25 U.S. Navy Seals under the command of the Joint Special Operations Command in cooperation with the CIA stormed the compound and engaged Bin Laden and his men in a firefight, killed Bin Laden and all those with him.


Two Bin Laden couriers were killed, as was one of Osama Bin Laden's son, as was a woman reportedly used as a shield by one of the men. Other women and children were present in the compound, according to Pakistani officials, but were not harmed. U.S. officials said that Bin Laden himself did fire his weapon during the fight.

One of the U.S. helicopters was damaged but not destroyed during the operation, and U.S. forces elected to destroy it themselves with explosives.

The Americans took Bin Laden's body into custody after the firefight and confirmed his identity. According to a senior administration official, the U.S. is "ensuring it is handled in accordance with Islamic practice and tradition. It's something we take seriously and therefore it's being handled in an appropriate manner."


In an extraordinary late-night address to the nation, President Barack Obama has announced that U.S. Special Forces conducted an operation today in Pakistan that killed radical Islamic terror-mastermind Osama Bin Laden, and then took possession of his body. Bin Laden was killed in a firefight:

Hearing lots of patriotic songs being sung "National Anthem", "God Bless America"...I'm not sure but I think those are ship horns going off in the background?

Chants of "U-S-A, U-S-A" are breaking out periodically, and people are waving U.S. flags and taking photos.

Full statement from President George W. Bush.......


Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.


.

From Sarah Paliln at Facebook

Americans tonight are united in celebration and gratitude. God bless all the brave men and women in our military and our intelligence services who contributed to carrying out the successful mission to bring bin Laden to justice and who laid the groundwork over the years to make this victory possible. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of these brave Americans who relentlessly hunted down our enemy.

This is a victory for the American people, for the victims who were heartlessly murdered on September 11 and in Al Qaeda’s other numerous attacks, and for all the peace-loving people of the world.

May God bless our troops and our intelligence services, and God bless America!

Osama Bin Laden ( like a cat with many lives) Buried at sea 1 1/2 hours after Americans are told he is killed??? Buried it Sea and NO BODY???


Years of Deceit: United States Openly Admits Bin Laden Long Dead

Bin laden never mentioned in McChrystal report or Obama speech


April 15, 2011.....NOTE the Date ~ Wild Thing

Conservative commentator, Marine Colonel Bob Pappas (Retired) has been saying for years that bin Laden died at Tora Bora and that Senator Kerry’s claim that bin Laden escaped with Bush help was a lie. Now we know that Pappas was correct. The embarrassment of having Secretary of State Clinton talk about bin Laden in Pakistan was horrific. He has been dead since December 13, 2001..


In 66 pages, General Stanley McChrystal never mentions Osama bin Laden. Everything is “Mullah Omar” now. In his talk at West Point, President Obama never mentioned Osama bin Laden. Col. Pappas makes it clear, Vice President Cheney let it “out of the bag” long ago. Bin Laden was killed by American troops many, many years ago.

Updated, 3:12 a.m. ET]A U.S. official said that Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea. The official said his body was handled in the Islamic tradition, but did not elaborate.

[Updated, 2:31 a.m. ET U.S. officials said they used facial imaging and other methods to identify the body of Osama bin Laden.

One official said it was clear to the assault force that the body matched bin Laden's description, but they used "facial recognition work, amongst other things, to confirm the identity."

A senior national security official said that they had multiple confirmations that the body was bin Laden, saying they had the "ability to run images of the body and the face."

The national security official would not confirm if DNA testing was performed.

Reports: Bin Laden killed a week ago today by US missile /CIA asset/Pakistani ground operation, confirmed tonight, body is ours, Obama announces “JUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE;” Osama allegedly swims with the fishes


News breaking all over the place tonight that Osama bin Laden was killed and that his body is in US possession.

Latest reports via Fox News live right now are that he was killed over a week ago by a US missile. There are conflicting reports on whether he was killed in Afghanistan (CBS) or Pakistan (CNN). CNN reporting that it was a “CIA asset” (read: human ground operation?) that killed bin Laden. [11:24pm Eastern update - Pakistani government tells Fox News that bin Laden was killed in Pakistan...TODAY...more: one of bin Laden's sons also killed, along with two male couriers and a female human shield]

3:17am Eastern…Cable news and Twitter on fire with reports that Osama was buried at sea already. Yes, he’s allegedly swimming with the fishes already. Official word is that burial at sea will prevent his grave from being a pilgrimage site.

Meanwhile, DNA tests won’t be back for another few days.

How many of you reacted with a big “WTH?”

Report: Bin Laden Already Dead

FOX News


Wednesday, December 26, 2001....Notice the date ~ Wild Thing

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.

"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.

Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

About 30 close associates of bin Laden in Al Qaeda, including his most trusted and personal bodyguards, his family members and some "Taliban friends," attended the funeral rites. A volley of bullets was also fired to pay final tribute to the "great leader."

The Taliban source who claims to have seen bin Laden's face before burial said "he looked pale ... but calm, relaxed and confident."

Asked whether bin Laden had any feelings of remorse before death, the source vehemently said "no." Instead, he said, bin Laden was proud that he succeeded in his mission of igniting awareness amongst Muslims about hegemonistic designs and conspiracies of "pagans" against Islam. Bin Laden, he said, held the view that the sacrifice of a few hundred people in Afghanistan was nothing, as those who laid their lives in creating an atmosphere of resistance will be adequately rewarded by Almighty Allah.

When asked where bin Laden was buried, the source said, "I am sure that like other places in Tora Bora, that particular place too must have vanished."

I don't get it,if this is true what would be the reason. This is very confusing!


What is going on and what are they trying to pull??? Bin Laden Buried at sea 1 1/2 hours after Americans are told he is killed??? NO BODY???

Why bury the body at sea, so soon? who cares about their religious customs!! Also why was blackhawk helicopter that supposedly was part of the mission blown up by navy seals to destroy evidence it was there?

Also why destroy the compound by fire? Why would they destroy all that evidence in there if this was really Osama Bin Laden? Why is the press so eager to push and spin this without asking more questions. If it is indeed Bin Laden, then we should all celebrate .

And just one more thing......how many lives does Osama bin laden have?????

Germany: Gunman Shouts 'Allahu Akbar,' Kills 2 US Airmen





Israel National News


In an apparent Muslim terrorist attack, a gunman opened fire on a U.S. Air Force bus outside Frankfurt airport Wednesday, killing two airmen and wounding two others. A source told Fox News that the shooter yelled "Allahu Akbar" - the Muslim battle cry - as he began firing.

Kosovo's interior minister told The Associated Press that German police have identified the suspect as Arif Uka, a citizen of Kosovo from the northern town of Mitrovica.

The bus was idling outside Terminal 2 at the airport, according to Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt. The bus driver and a passenger were killed. One person suffered serious wounds and another light injuries, according to Fuellhardt. Uka then dropped his gun and ran into the terminal where he was subdued.

Fox News quoted U.S. Air Force Europe spokeswoman Maj. Beverly Mock as saying all four victims were airmen based at the Lakenheath military base in Britain. A military official in Europe said they were going to be deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

A website named Pundit Press published a post in which it speculated that this is the attacker's Facebook page, although it admitted it does not have proof that this is the case and apologized in case it turns out to be wrong.

President Barack Obama said he was "saddened and outraged" by the shooting and vowed that the U.S. will spare no effort in finding out how the "outrageous" act came to pass.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the shooting "a terrible event."

A member of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Patrick Meehan, said in Washington that the attack looked like a terrorist act. He added that he did not have all the facts about the shooting yet.


Inquiry promised on airmen attack

Obama says the government will “spare no effort” to determine why two American airmen were killed and two others were wounded in a shooting in Frankfurt, Germany.

“I’m saddened, and I am outraged, by this attack that took the lives of two Americans and wounded two others. I think the American people are united in expressing our service to those who were lost,” Obama told reporters in a surprise appearance in the briefing room. “We are praying for a speedy recovery for those who were injured.”


Obama promised that “we will spare no effort” to figure out “how this outrageous attack took place.”


“We don’t have all the information yet,” he told reporters. “You will be fully briefed as we get more information.” He added that the attack is a “stark reminder” of the “extraordinary sacrifices” made by the members of the military.


Agence France-Presse reported that the attack occurred on a bus carrying Air Force personnel to Frankfurt International Airport for a flight to the U.S.

German authorities said the gunman — described as a 21-year-old Frankfurt resident originally from Muslim-majority Kosovo, in southeastern Europe — was captured at the scene.


The U.S. military has a number of major bases near Frankfurt, including Ramstein Air Base, which are operational hubs for Afghanistan and Iraq. The city of Hamburg was the base of the Al Qaeda cell that carried out the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Wild Thing's comment........


Obama doesn’t know “why” terrorists are attacking us — 10 years after 9-11?!???!! He sure as heck does know, he just does not want to say the truth. To Obama “this was an isolated incident”, a “lone gunman”, NOTHING to do with terrorism — just like the Ft. Hood shooter, yelling “Allahu Akbar” also had nothing to do with terrorism..

Saudi National Living in Texas Arrested on Charge of Attempted Use of Weapon of Mass Destruction



.



Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas


A Saudi National has been arrested and is being charged with planning to use a “Weapon of Mass Destruction” against several possible targets – including the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

The 20 year-old man – Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari – was attending school in the Lubbock, Texas area, having only arrived six weeks ago. Al-Dasari reportedly had been trying to purchase materials that could have been used to make weapons. This report says Al-Dasari may have been looking into using “realistic infant dolls” as way of concealing explosives.


Dallas Target: Texas Resident Arrested on Charge of Attempted Use of Weapon of Mass Destruction

Suspect Allegedly Purchased Bomb Materials and Researched U.S. Targets

KDAF TV Dallas Fort Worth


Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was arrested late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.

The arrest and the criminal complaint, which was unsealed in the Northern District of Texas, were announced by David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; James T. Jacks, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas; and Robert E. Casey Jr., Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Dallas Field Division.

Aldawsari is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Lubbock at 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning. Aldawsari, who was lawfully admitted into the United States in 2008 on a student visa and is enrolled at South Plains College near Lubbock, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the complaint, Aldawsari has been researching online how to construct an IED using several chemicals as ingredients. He has also acquired or taken a substantial step toward acquiring most of the ingredients and equipment necessary to construct an IED and he has conducted online research of several potential U.S. targets, the affidavit alleges. In addition, he has allegedly described his desire for violent jihad and martyrdom in blog postings and a personal journal.

“As alleged in the complaint, Aldawsari purchased ingredients to construct an explosive device and was actively researching potential targets in the United States. Thanks to the efforts of many agents, analysts and prosecutors, this plot was thwarted before it could advance further,” said Assistant Attorney General Kris. “This case serves as another reminder of the need for continued vigilance both at home and abroad.”
“Yesterday’s arrest demonstrates the need for and the importance of vigilance and the willingness of private individuals and companies to ask questions and contact the authorities when confronted with suspicious activities. Based upon reports from the public, Aldawsari’s plot was uncovered and thwarted. We’re confident we have neutralized the alleged threat posed by this defendant. Those reports resulted in the initiation of a complex and far-reaching investigation requiring almost around the clock work by hundreds of dedicated FBI agents, analysts, prosecutors and others. Their effort is another example of the work being done to protect our country and its citizens. These individuals are deserving of our respect and gratitude,” said U.S. Attorney Jacks.

“This arrest and criminal charge is a result of the success of the FBI's counterterrorism strategy, which is to detect, penetrate, and disrupt terrorist plots in the United States and against U.S. interests abroad. In this case, FBI Agents and other FBI experts worked tirelessly to neutralize the imminent terrorist threat described in the criminal complaint. The public can be justifiably proud of the national security expertise shown by the FBI in this investigation,” said Special Agent in Charge Casey.

Purchases of Chemical Ingredients and Other Equipment


The affidavit alleges that on Feb. 1, 2011, a chemical supplier reported to the FBI a suspicious attempted purchase of concentrated phenol by a man identifying himself as Khalid Aldawsari. According to the affidavit, phenol is a toxic chemical with legitimate uses, but can also be used to make the explosive trinitrophenol, also known as T.N.P., or picric acid. The affidavit alleges that other ingredients typically used with phenol to make picric acid, or T.N.P., are concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids.

Aldawsari allegedly attempted to have the phenol order shipped to a freight company so it could be held for him there, but the freight company returned the order to the supplier and called the police. Later, Aldawsari falsely told the supplier he was associated with a university and wanted the phenol for “off-campus, personal research.” Frustrated by questions being asked over his phenol order, Aldawsari cancelled his order and later e-mailed himself instructions for producing phenol. The affidavit alleges that in December 2010, he successfully purchased concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids.

According to the affidavit, legally authorized electronic surveillance revealed that Aldawsari used various e-mail accounts in researching explosives and targets, and often sent emails to himself as part of this process. On Feb. 11, 2011, for instance, he allegedly e-mailed himself a recipe for picric acid, which the e-mail describes as a “military explosive.” He also allegedly sent himself an e-mail on Oct. 19, 2010 that contained information on the material required for Nitro Urea, how to prepare it, and the advantages of using it.

The affidavit alleges that Aldawsari also e-mailed himself instructions on how to convert a cellular phone into a remote detonator and how to prepare a booby-trapped vehicle using items available in every home. One e-mail allegedly contained a message stating that “one operation in the land of the infidels is equal to ten operations against occupying forces in the land of the Muslims.” During December 2010 and January 2011, Aldawsari allegedly purchased many other items, including a gas mask, a Hazmat suit, a soldering iron kit, glass beakers and flasks, wiring, a stun gun, clocks and a battery tester.

Searches of Aldawsari’s Residence


Two legally authorized searches of Aldawsari’s apartment conducted by the FBI in February 2011 indicated that the concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids; the beakers and flasks; wiring; Hazmat suit; and clocks were present in Aldawsari’s residence.

FBI agents also found a notebook at Aldawsari’s residence that appeared to be a diary or journal. According to the affidavit, excerpts from the journal indicate that Aldawsari had been planning to commit a terrorist attack in the United States for years. One entry describes how Aldawsari sought and obtained a particular scholarship because it allowed him to come directly to the United State and helped him financially, which he said “will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad.” The entry continues: “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

In another entry, Aldawsari allegedly wrote that he was near to reaching his goal and near to getting weapons to use against infidels and their helpers. He also listed a “synopsis of important steps” that included obtaining a forged U.S. birth certificate; renting a car; using different driver’s licenses for each car rented; putting bombs in cars and taking them to different places during rush hour; and leaving the city for a safe place.


Research on Potential Targets


According to the affidavit, Aldawsari conducted research on various targets and e-mailed himself information on these locations and people. One of the documents he sent himself, with the subject line listed as “Targets,” allegedly contained the names and home addresses of three American citizens who had previously served in the U.S. military and had been stationed for a time at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

In another e-mail titled “NICE TARGETS 01,” Aldawsari allegedly sent himself the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. In another e-mail to himself, titled “NICE TARGETS,” he listed two categories of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear power plants. On Feb. 6, 2011, the affidavit alleges, Aldawsari sent himself an e-mail titled “Tyrant’s House,” in which he listed the Dallas address for former President George W. Bush. The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari conducted research that could indicate his consideration of the use of infant dolls to conceal explosives and possible targeting of a nightclub with an explosive concealed in a backpack.

The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari created a blog in which he posted extremist messages. In one posting, he expressed dissatisfaction with current conditions of Muslims and vowed jihad and martyrdom. “You who created mankind….grant me martyrdom for Your sake and make jihad easy for me only in Your path,” he wrote.



Saudi Citizen in Texas Charged in Suspected Bombing Plot

FOX News

Aldawsari, 20, entered the U.S. in October 2008 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to study at Texas Tech University, then transferred earlier this year to nearby South Plains College.

Federal prosecutors say Aldawsari had been researching online how to construct an improvised explosive device using several chemicals as ingredients. Authorities say Aldawsari's diary indicated the young man had been plotting an attack for years and obtained a scholarship so he could come directly to the United State to carry out jihad.


"After mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for jihad," the student wrote in his journal, according to court documents.


In e-mails Aldawsari apparently sent himself, he listed the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. He also wrote an e-mail that mentioned "Tyrant's House" with the address of President Bush's home. The FBI's affidavit said he considered using infant dolls to hide explosives and was possibly targeting a nightclub with a backpack filled with explosives.

One of the chemical companies, Carolina Biological Supply of Burlington, N.C., reported suspicious purchases by the student to the FBI on Feb. 1.

George W. Bush was on this terrorist’s list of possible targets. God bless and protect Pres. George W. Bush and his family.

Thank God they caught this terrorists before he went through with his plan. And thank God for that company notifying the FBI.

Our enemy knows us well and uses everything they possibly can to their advantage.

Gitmo Detainees And Their Families In Yemen Chat Via Video



Gitmo detainees and their families in Yemen chat via video


The Seattle Times


With the prison camps at Guantánamo approaching their 10th year, the majority Yemeni captive population has just received a new perk: Video conferencing back to family via a new link set up by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The Geneva-based group announced the service’s inauguration on Tuesday, saying four Yemeni captives had been allowed to use the teleconferencing this month in calls beamed between the Navy base in southeast Cuba and the nation on the Arabian Peninsula.

Prisoners and family can speak by video for up to an hour, according to a Red Cross statement. It said some detainees and their families can now see and speak to each other “for the first time in almost a decade.”

The military at Guantánamo would not say whether all Yemeni captives can get video calls — or whether they are rewards in the Pentagon prison camps' compliance matrix.

"I can confirm some of our detainees are Yemenis," said Air Force Lt. Col. Donald Langley, a prison spokesman, refusing to speak to the specifics of the Red Cross announcement.

Some Yemeni captives have already passed their 10th year in U.S. custody, having been scooped up in Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and turned over to invading U.S. forces.

I am so fed up with us looking weaker and weaker. Our troops are risking their lives every second of every day, and then our government allows this kind of thing to go on.

I am so disappointed in the freaking Red Cross. As time goes by the more we learn about them the bigger disappointment they are. They sure have changed. Now they are some kind of civil rights etc. kind of organization or somerthing. sheesh


God bless the Salvation Army, they are always the very first at a disaster and they are for real. They were first to arrive at 9-11.

Al Qaeda Hopes To Surgically Implant Bombs




Frankenbombers are 'new kind of terrorism': Al Qaeda hopes to surgically implant bombs into thugs

NY Daily News

Jihadis bent on concocting a "new kind of terrorism" are brainstorming how to surgically implant explosives to make undetectable Frankenbombers.

"What is your opinion about surgeries through which I can implant the bomb ...inside the operative's body?" an apparent mad surgeon recently asked an online forum used by Al Qaeda affiliates.


He called on bombmakers and doctors to cook up the perfect solution to murder "larger numbers of unbelievers and apostates."


"I am waiting for the interaction of the experienced brothers to connect the two sciences together and produce a new kind of terrorism, Allah willing," he wrote, according to a translation by terror experts at the SITE Intelligence Group.

The scheming comes amid controversy over body scanners and pat-downs in airports that some Americans complain are too invasive. The ideas for a "surgically booby-trapped martyrdom seeker" were chillingly concise for the doctor of death monitored by SITE.

Stitching a bomb into the abdominal cavity made of plastic or liquid explosives - such as semtex or PETN - was judged the best method.

"It must be planted near the surface of the body, because the human body absorbs shocks," advised one terrorist.


In the same way that drug smugglers have placed bags of narcotics in the body cavities of animals and had people ingest condoms filled with drugs, it would not be out of the realm of Al Qaeda operational planners to conceive of such a technique," said Mark Rossini, a former senior FBI counterterror agent. "No technique is off-limits to Al Qaeda to achieve its destructive goals.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and Col. Ralph Peters Speak Out on Ghailani Verdict





Peter King Rips Obama on Ghailani Verdict


Weekly Standard


Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani killed 224 people and the Obama administration couldn’t convict him on a single count of murder.

The first civilian trial of a Guantanamo detainee ended yesterday with the stunning acquittal of an alleged Al Qaeda operative on all but a single count.

A federal jury convicted Ahmed Ghailani, 36, of conspiring to destroy U.S. buildings and property in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.

But the jury - after 4 1/2 days of deliberation - cleared Ghailani of more than 280 other counts, including the top charges of murder and murder conspiracy.

Even though the charge he was convicted of carries a mandatory 20-year-to-life sentence, Ghailani appeared relieved, hugging his attorneys after the verdict was read in Manhattan Federal Court.


Peter King rips the Ghailani verdict as a "total miscarriage of justice today in Manhattan’s federal civilian court." He says it demonstrates the "absolute insanity of the Obama Administration’s decision to try al-Qaeda terrorists in civilian courts."


“I am disgusted at the total miscarriage of justice today in Manhattan’s federal civilian court. In a case where Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was facing 285 criminal counts, including hundreds of murder charges, and where Attorney General Eric Holder assured us that ‘failure is not an option,’ the jury found him guilty on only one count and acquitted him of all other counts including every murder charge.

“This tragic verdict demonstrates the absolute insanity of the Obama Administration’s decision to try al-Qaeda terrorists in civilian courts.


“This case was doomed from the beginning when the judge excluded DOJ’s key witness who admitted selling the explosives to Ghailani. Where is the justice for the more than 200 people killed and 4,000 injured in the terrorist bombings of our U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania?

“This is a tragic wake-up call to the Obama Administration to immediately abandon its ill-advised plan to try Guantanamo terrorists like the admitted 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed in federal civilian courts. We must treat them as wartime enemies and try them in military commissions at Guantanamo.


“As the next Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, I intend to hold hearings and conduct the necessary oversight on this critical homeland security issue in the 112th Congress.”

Obama Funding Pro-Palestinian Billboard Campaign in Israel





Obama Administration Funding Pro-Palestinian Billboard Campaign in Israel


UPI

The campaign launched Sunday includes the faces of senior Palestinian Authority officials Saeb Erekat, Jibril Rajoub and Yasser Abed Rabo, and Riad Malki, Palestinian foreign affairs minister, Yedioth Aharonoth said.

The aim of the campaign is to persuade Israelis that peace partners on the Palestinian side truly exist, and calls for support of a two-state solution, the Tel Aviv newspaper said.

The U.S. government was approached to fund the campaign by the Geneva Initiative founders, who drew up an agreement in 2003 to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the newspaper said.

The U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, invested close to $250,000 toward the creation of the billboards, the newspaper said.

The campaign has raised a few eyebrows in Israel.

"We are talking about a Palestinian Authority campaign funded by the American government," an Israeli Foreign Ministry official was quoted saying.

God...when does this stop? Every day another outrage!

Just give him more time & Obama will transfer the U.S. Treasury over to the muslims!!

Viewed against the backdrop of the otherwise magnificent panorama of American history, the regime of B. Hussein Obama is an horrific aberration, a danger to American people as well as to Jews the world over. It is reminiscent of a terrible nightmare. Let the day quickly come when Obama and his evil and ignorantly puerile enablers are voted out of office.

Two Men on United Flight from Chicago Arrested on 'Preparation of a Terrorist Attack' in Amsterdam

ABC News Exclusive: Two Men on United Flight from Chicago Arrested on 'Preparation of a Terrorist Attack' in Amsterdam

ABC

Suspects Had Been Cleared Sunday by TSA in Chicago, Birmingham Despite Security Concerns

Two men taken off a Chicago-to-Amsterdam United Airlines flight in the Netherlands have been charged by Dutch police with "preparation of a terrorist attack," U.S. law enforcement officials tell ABC News.

U.S. officials said the two appeared to be travelling with what were termed "mock bombs" in their luggage. "This was almost certainly a dry run, a test," said one senior law enforcement official.
A spokesman for the Dutch public prosecutor, Ernst Koelman, confirmed the two men were arrested this morning and said "the investigation is ongoing." He said the arrests were made "at the request of American authorities."



The two were allowed to board the flight at O'Hare airport last night despite security concerns surrounding one of them, the officials said.

The men were identified as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi, of Detroit, MI, and Hezem al Murisi, the officials said. A neighbor of al Soofi told ABC News he is from Yemen.

Airport security screeners in Birmingham, Alabama first stopped al Soofi and referred him to additional screening because of what officials said was his "bulky clothing."

In addition, officials said, al Soofi was found to be carrying $7,000 in cash and a check of his luggage found a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, three cell phones taped together, several watches taped together, a box cutter and three large knives. Officials said there was no indication of explosives and he and his luggage were cleared for the flight from Birmingham to Chicago O'Hare.

Once in Chicago, officials say they learned al Soofi checked his luggage on a flight to Washington's Dulles airport for connections on flights to Dubai and then Yemen, even though he did not board the flight himself.

Instead, officials say, al Soofi was joined by the second man, Al Murisi, and boarded the United flight from Chicago to Amsterdam.

When Customs and Border officials learned al Soofi was not on the flight from Dulles to Dubai, the plane was ordered to return to the gate so his luggage could be removed. Officials said additional screening found no evidence of explosives.

The two men were detained by Dutch authorities when the United flight landed in Amsterdam, according to the officials.

Obama Halts Prosecution of Suspected USS Cole Bomber







USS Cole Commander Lippold Furious At Obama's Suspension of Bomber's Trial


.

Administration halts prosecution of alleged USS Cole bomber

The Washington Post


Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri is the alleged mastermind behind the USS Cole bombing and other terrorist attacks. He headed al-Qaeda operations in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf states prior to his capture in November 2002. The Obama Administration dropped charges in February 2009 on al-Nashiri pending the administration’s review of all Gitmo detentions.


The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.

The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.

In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that “no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future.”

The statement, tucked into a motion to dismiss a petition by Nashiri’s attorneys, suggests that the prospect of further military trials for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has all but ground to a halt, much as the administration’s plan to try the accused plotters of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in federal court has stalled.

Only two cases are moving forward at Guantanamo Bay, and both were sworn and referred for trial by the time Obama took office. In January 2009, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates directed the Convening Authority for Military Commissions to stop referring cases for trial, an order that 20 months later has not been rescinded.

Military officials said a team of prosecutors in the Nashiri case has been ready go to trial for some time. And several months ago, military officials seemed confident that Nashiri would be arraigned this summer.

“It’s politics at this point,” said one military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss policy. He said he thinks the administration does not want to proceed against a high-value detainee without some prospect of civilian trials for other major figures at Guantanamo Bay.

Obama’s Counter Terror Czar John Brennan Storms Out of Washington Times Office When Confronted On His Radical Positions



WH counter-terrorism adviser Brennan storms out of TWT offices

The Washington Times

On June 24, WH counterterrorism adviser John Brennan visited the Washington Times Editorial Board and then he storms out of Washington Times offices .

In February Barack Obama’s radical counter terror czar John Brennan said that 20% recidivism rate for Gitmo detainees was not that bad. In May adviser John Brennan called Jerusalem “Al Quds.” He also said that “jihad was a legitimate tenet of Islam.”

When confronted about his controversial positions at a meeting in June, John Brennan stormed out of the office.

Mr. Brennan had visited the Washington Times Editorial Board on June 24 as a result of a June 11 Washington Times editorial he objected to. It did not take long for the White House counter-terrorism adviser to lose his temper with our editorial board’s questions regarding what he previously said about individuals who become terrorists.


Mr. Brennan cut the meeting short and stormed out of our offices thereafter following a question posed by senior editorial writer Jim Robbins (transcript and video below). Referring to a quote Mr. Brennan said in May, calling jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” Mr. Robbins looked to discuss the concept of jihad further with the Obama administration adviser.


The president's top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a "legitimate tenet of Islam," arguing that the term "jihadists" should not be used to describe America's enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces," but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms."
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not "terrorism," because terrorism is a "tactic," and not terror, because terror is a "state of mind" -- though Brennan's title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word "terrorism" in it. But then Brennan said that the word "jihad" should not be applied either.
"Nor do we describe our enemy as 'jihadists' or 'Islamists' because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children," Brennan said.


.

From the Video above:......TRANSCRIPT:

TWT: You mentioned jihad, for example, and would you agree with the lesser and greater and lesser jihad framework? I mean, that’s pretty standard.

BRENNAN: Sure, it is...absolutely.

TWT: Can you give me an example of a jihad in history? Like, has there ever been a jihad...an armed jihad anywhere in history? Has it ever existed for real, or is it just a concept?

BRENNAN: Absolutely it has.

TWT: Example?

BRENNAN: I’m not going to go into this sort of history discussion here.

TWT: But it’s important to frame the concept, because we want to say that what al-Qaeda is doing is not jihad. They say it is, and Abdul Azzam has said, in fact, ‘there’s not even a greater jihad.’ That that’s just a myth—that hadith didn’t even really happen. That there’s only armed jihad. Ayatollah Khomeini said ‘there is only armed jihad, and it would be useful to be able to characterize or to contrast what they’re doing and what they claim against a legitimate armed jihad in the past.

BRENNAN: I think we’ve finished. I have to get going.

Mr. Brennan left our offices immediately after that exchange.

DOD’s Final Report Classifies Fort Hood Jihad As “workplace violence”




DoD’s final report classifies Fort Hood jihad as “workplace violence”

Offensive jihad in the name of Islam against the U.S. military – perpetrated by a Muslim member of the military – who preached jihad – is now being referred to by the Department of Defense as “workplace violence.”.... Defense.gov News Article: Pentagon Releases Final Fort Hood Shooting Review.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2010 – Pentagon officials today released the Defense Department’s final review of recommendations issued by an independent panel in the wake of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting spree on Fort Hood, Texas.
Among the department’s top priorities, as outlined in the review, are boosting on-base emergency response capabilities, improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies, and integrating force protection policy, a Defense Department news release said.
In a memorandum signed Aug. 18, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said he carefully considered the panel’s recommendations — detailed in the report titled, “Protecting the Force: Lessons Learned from Fort Hood” — and is directing the department to take “appropriate action” to address the initiatives detailed in the follow-on review.
“I expect department leaders to place great priority on implementing these recommendations,” Gates said. All actions are aimed at contributing to the safety and health of military forces, the release said.
Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, allegedly opened fire at a Fort Hood facility where soldiers were processing for overseas deployments. He has been charged with 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.
“The tragic shooting of U.S. military personnel at Fort Hood … underscored the need for the [Defense Department] to thoroughly review its approach to force protection and to broaden its force protection policies, programs and procedures to go beyond their traditional focus on hostile external threats,” Gates said…
The review puts forth “concrete actions” for the majority of the recommendations, Gates said. In some cases, however, further study will be required before the department can take additional steps.
In particular, he said, the department will strengthen its policies, programs and procedures in the following areas:

– Educating commanders about the symptoms of potential workplace violence and the tools available to them to address it;

After a cursory review, responding to future acts of jihad (although DoD won’t call it that) seems to be a significant focus of the recommendations. One would think preventing infiltration of the U.S. military by jihadists and stealth jihadists would be the focus rather than responding to future attacks.


.

Wild Thing's comment.......

This makes me so angry. If this keeps up, America as we know and love it will be dead within 20 years.

“...allegedly opened fire ...”

“allegedly” - isn't that a damnable lie??

Let me get this right. An attack on a a US military base by a Muslim terrorist is workplace violence? So by extension of this logic, when our finest are deployed in Afghanistan and attacked... that's also workplace violence. After all, the military "works" around the world.

And why is the Pentagon protecting a Muslim who opened fire on the military? Do they think we’re all just going to go, “All right then, no jihad, nothing to worry about”? Why can’t the Pentagon call it what it is? How can the Pentagon defend us if the Pentagon can’t even identify the enemy? Because the Pentagon is following the orders of the Commander In Chief. Protecting Muslims at the expense of our troops!!!!

This is an insult to the families of the dead at Ft Hood, and the dead from the 911 Atrocities, and the dead on
the battlefields that protected America.

Imam Obama and the DoD clearly wants more. Wants more of this for America.


From Imam Obama's Audacity of Hope:
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Germany Shuts Down Hamburg Mosque Linked to 9/11




Aug. 9: A passerby is walking in front of the sealed front doors of the Hamburg mosque once frequented by some of the Sept. 11 attackers, and which German authorities said they believed was a meeting-point for Islamic radicals again.



Germany shuts down Hamburg mosque linked to 9/11


HAMBURG Germany

Aug 9

Reuters

German police shut down a mosque in Hamburg on Monday which was once connected to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, saying it had links with armed Islamist groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Taiba Mosque in the port city was previously known as the Al-Quds Mosque and was once frequented by Mohammed Atta, the leader of the group that carried out the attack on the World Trade Center in New York for al Qaeda.

Despite the name change, the mosque in Hamburg's St. Georg district remained under close watch by security services since the 9/11 attacks.

"We believe that the mosque has been supporting terrorism for years," Manfred Murck from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, a German domestic intelligence service, told a news conference held by Hamburg state authorities.

About 20 police cordoned off the mosque early on Monday and searched the premises, said the interior minister for Hamburg, Christoph Ahlhaus, adding that the cultural association behind the mosque had been declared a banned organisation.

The mosque was a meeting point for the "jihadist scene" which had in the past sent recruits to take part in the armed Islamist insurgency in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Ahlhaus said.

There was no mention of any arrests being made.

Egyptian-born Atta, who was on board the first of the two planes to hit the World Trade Center, studied at a technical university in Hamburg in the 1990s and frequented the Al-Quds mosque, along with other 9/11 plotters.

Mayor Bloomberg Sparks Mosque Fray





Mayor Sparks Mosque Fray

The Wall Street Journal


Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday he doesn't know where the organizers of the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero are getting their financing—and that he doesn't believe it should be the government's business.

"People say, 'Well, you know, do they have the money? Can they raise the money? Where does it come from?' I don't know," said the mayor, a staunch defender of the proposed center, on his weekly radio show.
"Do you really want every time they pass the basket in your church and you throw a buck in, they run over and say, 'OK, now, you know, where do you come from? Who are your parents? Where did you get this money?' No," he said.


"A handful of people," he concluded, "ought to be ashamed of themselves."

The mayor's comments drew immediate criticism from Republican leaders, including Rep. Pete King of Long Island, the ranking member of the homeland security committee, and former Rep. Rick Lazio, who is running for governor of New York.

The center—planned to rise two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center—is projected to cost upwards of $100 million.

"This is different from your average church, your average temple," Mr. King said in an interview. "The $100 million funding should definitely be investigated."

He said the government would be "acting properly" in conducting a civil investigation of the mosque's funding. Asked to explain the basis of the probe, he said key factors include the large amount of money involved and the controversy with its location. "And, thirdly," he said, "the fact that there's been a pattern, especially in the New York metropolitan area, of mosques being sympathetic to terrorism, or at least having a blind eye when it comes to terrorism."

John Esposito, professor of religion and international affairs and Islamic studies at Georgetown University, denounced Mr. King's remarks as irresponsible. "He operates in a context which sort of says these people are potentially guilty until they're proven innocent," he said.

Mr. Lazio said New Yorkers have a right to know the identity of those funding the project. He called on his Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo, to launch a probe, which he has so far refused to do.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Daisy Khan, a partner in the building and the wife of the cleric leading the effort, said that none of the money has been raised yet for the center. She wouldn't rule out accepting foreign funding, but said the group would be careful about who it took money from.

The organizers have pledged not to accept money from persons with anti-American views or agendas. Generally speaking, there's no legal requirement for a nonprofit, such as this group, to release a donor list.

On Thursday, Rep. Anthony Weiner, a potential 2013 mayoral candidate, sent a letter praising Mr. Bloomberg for the stirring speech he delivered on religious freedom earlier in the week. He also wrote that he hoped there would be a process moving forward where the "other great hallmarks of democracy are respected—transparency and tolerance of all view points."

He declined repeated requests to clarify his position.

Meanwhile, on Friday, a New Hampshire group sued the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in federal court, saying the agency has refused to run its bus advertisement in opposition to the proposed mosque.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative sought to run an ad that said "Why There?" and depicted the Twin Towers burning and a plane headed toward them, according to the lawsuit.

An MTA spokesman said, "No decision has been made on this ad."

Unbelievable Censorship: Bloomberg's MTA Refuses to Allow 911 Images

Today we filed a lawsuit against the city of New York. Here is the complaint: PDF file of complaint


The city has refused to run my SIOA "Preservation of Ground Zero" bus campaign.

It seems that Mayor Bloomberg invokes certain freedoms when it serves his 2012 agenda. Doing away with term limits wasn't enough (which is why we are still suffering under his no-salt, no-transfat regime). He is now widening his ayatollah-like power grab to imposing blasphemy laws (Islamic sharia laws) on the secular marketplace. Bloomberg's frenzied Ground Zero mosque push may have inspired Al-Azhar clerics to oppose the Ground Zero Mosque, calling it a "a zionist plot."

What?! FBI Weblinks Promote TERRORIST William Ayers, and Agent KILLER Leonard Peltier




What?! FBI weblinks promote Ayers, Peltier

Unrepentant terrorist lauded, freedom sought for convicted killer of 2 agents


The website for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is assigned to protect the United States and enforce its laws, links to sites that laud the work of unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and promote freedom for convicted agent-killer Leonard Peltier.

The issue was highlighted by researcher and writer Phil Kent, who heads a communications company in a lengthy career that includes a stint as a press secretary to a U.S. senator, years of writing for the Augusta, Ga., Chronicle, the presidency of the American Research Foundation and serving as spokesman for Americans for Immigration Control.

His report was documented by WND, which confirmed that the FBI website page discussing hate crimes lists as a "resource" the Southern Poverty Law Center, a radically liberal organization that according to its own site "is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry … using litigation, education and other forms of advocacy."

A project of the SPLC, its "Tolerance" website, features a laudatory profile of Ayers from 1998 titled "An Unconditional Embrace."


The website calls Ayers "a civil rights organizer, radical anti–Vietnam War activist, teacher and author." Ayers was responsible for bombings of the New York City police headquarters in 1970, the U.S. Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972 and later was quoted as saying he didn't think he did enough.


The profile tells how Ayers co-founded the Small Schools Workshop to reform education systems "by restructuring large, factory-model schools into teacher-directed, intimate learning environments" and how he "helps aspiring teachers recognize and tap the potential of every child."

The United website also features Peltier's letter to Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.


~ snipet ~
Kent's video questions the FBI's Web links in light of its official mission to "protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign-intelligence threats, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of the Untied States, and to provide leadership and criminal-justice services to federal, state, municipal and international agencies and partners."

"Is the FBI showing leadership to other law-enforcement agencies when it recommends 'resources' that promote a terror bomber and the defenders of cop killers?" he asks.

"Why is the FBI recommending a website that tells children to go visit the defenders of these cop killers?"

And, "Should American taxpayers subsidize the promotion of organizations that defend domestic terrorist and cop killers?"

The FBI media office, contacted by WND and asked for comment, transferred a reporter to an answering machine and then declined to return the call.

Holder Raises Question On Sept. 11 Death Penalty






In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on 5/13/2010, US Attorney General refuses to use the term "radical Islam."



.

Holder Uncertain if Radical Islam Influenced Terrorists


Washington

CNSNews.com


Attorney General Eric Holder hesitated to answer whether radical Islam was even a motivating factor for the individuals responsible for the Fort Hood shooting, the attempted Christmas Day bombing and the attempted Times Square attack.

“There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions,” Holder said. “One, I think just look at each individual case. We are in the process how of talking to Mr. (Faisal) Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action.”

The question as to whether the individuals were incited by radical Islam came from the committee’s ranking member Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).

Smith followed, “But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?”

Holder again said, “There are a variety of reasons.”

Smith later asked, “But all I’m asking is do you think among those variety of reasons, radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did?”

After a two-minute back and forth, Holder eventually said, “I certainly think that it’s possible that people who espouse a radical version of Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad.”

Holder Raises Question On Sept. 11 Death Penalty

newsmax

Attorney General Eric Holder says there's a real question about whether a terrorist suspect such as alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can face the death penalty if he were to plead guilty before a military commission.

Holder proposed last year trying Mohammed and four alleged accomplices in civilian courts in New York City. But that idea generated so much controversy that it's all but been abandoned.

He told CBS' "Face the Nation" that it's possible to impose the death penalty in a civilian setting for someone who pleads guilty. But he says there's far less legal certainty about that possibility in a military setting.

Since January, Holder has said that all options are on the table about where to try Mohammed and the four other terrorist suspects. That includes the possibility of having them go before a military commission in Guantanamo Bay, where they are now held.

The attorney general said the Obama administration is working through issues about a site for the proceedings, taking into account the need for Congress to approve funding and trying to address concerns expressed by local officials.
"As soon as we can" resolve those issues, "we will make a decision as to where that trial will occur," Holder said.
He said "the politicization of this issue, when we're dealing with ultimate national security issues, is something that disturbs me a great deal."
The attorney general said it is his hope that Congress provides money to move Guantanamo detainees to a new location in Thomson, Ill., where an underused state prison now exists.
"There is no reason to believe that people held in Guantanamo cannot be held wherever we put them in the United States. Again, very safely and very effectively," Holder said.

The need for congressional approval of the money for the project stands in the way of doing so, with Republicans and some Democrats objecting to bringing those prisoners into the United States.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I have a feeling Baraq Sheik Obama has no intention of prosecuting KSM, and Holder is in full agreement.

Obama and minions chipping away at Muslim accountability on anything.

KSM is more likely to die of laughter, induced by this administration's stupidity.

And he cannot bring himself to say anything negative about his terrorists he favors over Americans.

'Dying' Lockerbie Terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi May Live 10 Years



LONDON

A doctor who said the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 had only three months to live now says the Libyan could survive another 10 years, London's Sunday Times reported.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of 270 counts of murder for being behind the 1988 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, was released on compassionate grounds in 2009, after doctors said he only had a few months to live.


.

Hmmmmmmm check this out the connection to BP oil : ~ Wild Thing

Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'


London Sunday Times


The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests.

Downing Street had also said Megrahi would not be included under the agreement.

Straw then switched his position as Libya used its deal with BP as a bargaining chip to insist the Lockerbie bomber was included.

The exploration deal for oil and gas, potentially worth up to £15 billion, was announced in May 2007. Six months later the agreement was still waiting to be ratified.

The sifting of more than 800 cubic yards (612 cubic meters) of debris recovered from ground zero and underneath roads around the lower Manhattan site began in April and ended Friday.

The greatest number of remains – 37 – were found from material underneath West Street, a highway on the west side of ground zero. The new debris was uncovered as construction work made new parts of the site accessible.

Terror Suspects Arrested at JFK




NEWARK — The FBI has arrested two New Jersey men in a shadowy terrorism plot tied to a radical Islamic group based in Somalia, both apprehended as they were preparing to board separate flights from JFK International Airport earlier this evening.

Both individuals were charged with conspiring to commit an act of international terrorism through a group tied to Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network, according to officials familiar with the details of the arrests. The sources declined to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

The agencies involved in the arrests also declined to talk about the case.

Jose Lozano, a spokesman for the state Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, said only: "Two individuals were arrested at JFK in connection with an ongoing investigation. At this time, we can provide no further details because the investigation is ongoing. The arrests do not relate to an immediate threat."

The arrests were the culmination of Operation Arabian Knight, officials said. Details remain sketchy, but authorities said the suspects have been under surveillance for some time and were being shadowed by an undercover New York City cop who managed to infiltrate their circle of friends and keep tabs as they bought air tickets and prepared to travel overseas.

The two were identified as Mohamed Hamoud Alessa, 20, of North Bergen, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 26, of Elmwood Park, who were both apprehended before they could board separate flights to Egypt. The arrests were made by teams of state and federal law-enforcement agents who have been investigating the pair since October 2006.

“Neither Alessa nor Almonte is married. Both are American citizens, said the anonymous officials.”

Officials said the suspects were not planning an imminent attack in the New Jersey-New York area but were believed to be joining with the terrorist fight against Americans in Somalia.

Authorities said the men planned to wage jihad as part of a Somalia-based Islamist terror group called al Shabaab...”

Interesting they were on seperate flights. I am not sure but I think that is a first,the other times the terrorists traveled together. Maybe they thought being apart on their flights would be lessof a chance of getting caught.

White House ...Dep. National Security Adviser John Brennan...Linked To Flotilla Organizers


White House linked to flotilla organizers

Israel official ties president's adviser to controversial 'Free Gaza Movement'


wnd


A top adviser to President Obama is the contact person within the White House for communications with the Free Gaza Movement over plans to challenge Israel's blockade of the terrorist Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, according to a reputable source close to the Netanyahu government.

The source, a career official whose reliability was established through his tips for the book, "Why Israel Can't Wait," identified John O. Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism, as the contact.

The allegation raises the bizarre possibility that the Free Gaza Movement's flotilla action in the Mediterranean was being coordinated with the White House, something that would align with a shift in U.S. policy toward Israel being debated within the Obama administration.

Mike Hammer, a National Security Council spokesman, told WND flatly the report "is not true."

"John Brennan is quite busy in his job as the president's counterterrorism and homeland security adviser, relentlessly working to keep the country safe," Hammer said in a e-mail to WND. "The administration has others who are responsible for our Middle East policy. So, again, not true."

However, Brennan's activities in his "counterterrorism" work have involved him in situations with domestic groups known to have ties to Middle East terrorism.

WND previously has reported that Brennan participated in a meeting with Muslim law students, facilitated by the Islamic Society of North America, a group that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a case where the founders of the Holy Land Foundation of Texas were given life sentences "for funneling $12 million" to Hamas, the group currently in political control of Gaza.

WND further reported that at a meeting with Muslim law students at New York University, Brennan declared himself a "citizen of the world" who believed the United States government should never engage in "profiling" in pursuit of national security.

The New York Times reported this week that the Obama administration's policy toward Israel was changing in a re-evaluation that now considers Israel's blockade of Gaza to be untenable. But Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu insisted in a special press conference in his office Thursday that "Israel will not apologize for defending itself," which strongly suggested Israel fully intends to continue its blockade.

Brennan tilts toward Islam

In a speech delivered Aug. 9, 2009, to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and archived on the White House website, Brennan commented that using "a legitimate term, 'jihad,' meaning to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal" to describe terrorists "risks reinforcing the idea that the United States is somehow at war with Islam itself."

In reporting on Brennan’s speech to the CSIS, WND noted his specific advice regarding the Middle East, namely, that U.S. foreign policy should encourage greater assimilation of the Hezbollah terrorist organization into the Lebanese government.

WND noted that in a July 2008 article in The Annals, a publication of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, Brennan argued it "would not be foolhardy, however, for the United States to tolerate, and even to encourage, greater assimilation of Hezbollah into Lebanon's political system, a process that is subject to Iranian influence."

Continued Brennan: "Hezbollah is already represented in the Lebanese parliament and its members have previously served in the Lebanese cabinet, reflections of Hezbollah's interest in shaping Lebanon's political future from within government institutions. This involvement is a far cry from Hezbollah's genesis as solely a terrorist organization dedicated to murder, kidnapping and violence."

At the August 2009 press conference for the CSIS, Brennan declared, "Hezbollah started out as purely a terrorist organization back in the early '80s and has evolved significantly over time. And now it has members of parliament, in the cabinet; there are lawyers, doctors, others who are part of the Hezbollah organization."

Middle Eastern terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah frequently maintain civilian units of doctors and lawyers so as to emphasize their outreach with local politicians and increase their political acceptance in the international arena.

Conceivably, the Istanbul-based Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, better known by the Turkish acronym IHH, would fit Brennan's definition of the charitable side of organizations such as Hezbollah, despite IHH's ties to al-Qaida that have been documented by experts such as former investigating judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere, who led the French judiciary's counter-terrorism unit for nearly two decades before retiring in 2007.

The IHH, in fact, is not included on the U.S. State Department's current list of 45 groups designated as foreign terrorist organizations. Both Hezbollah and Hamas are listed.

In his speech to the New York University law school students posted on YouTube by the White House, Brennan included a lengthy statement in Arabic that he did not translate for his English-speaking audience.


Dep. National Security Adviser John Brennan: Calls Jerusalem 'al Quds'


Noting that he spent time spent as an undergraduate with the American University in Cairo during the 1970s, Brennan proceeded to use only the Arabic name "Al Quds" when referring to Jerusalem, commenting that during his 25 years in government he spent considerable time in the Middle East, as a political officer with the State Department and as a CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia.
"In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina," he said. "I marveled at the majesty of the hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims of making that pilgrimage."


.



Wild Thing's comment........


Brennan was the man running the security company that breached candidates passport files during the presidential election.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/03/22/passport.files/index.html

Personally I can’t help but wonder if some of the terrorists entering America by legal means may be a result of Brennan’s activities.

There was also the news that Obama's associatates Ayers, Ayers wife Dohrn helped organize flotilla group.
Obama Fund raiser Jodie Evans of Code Pink along with them.

So I would say the WH can deny it all day long, but there is very much a connection from Obama, his admin, his associates to the Flotilla organizers.

More On Obama and His Admin Won't Acknowledge "Terrorism"



They are responding to John Brennan's comment that "Jihad" is a legitimate tenet of Islam, Krauthammer again nails it...


Krauthammer: "Who is describing whom in religious terms? He's describing himself...Our enemy is describing itself in those terms and to deny it, is unbelievable"

Williams: "We don't want to antagonize people that we want to win over and that includes whatever moderate element there is in the Islamic community, we want them in fact to stand taller than they have been in defiance to people who are extremists. So I understand the instinct that says look, these people are Muslim radicals, why don't we just call it for what it is, well if you are politically savvy, you want to make sure that people who are faithful Muslims don't think we are going after them"

And this is Brigitte Gabriel, LISTEN UP Obama you Islam freak!

Thank God for Krauthammer and Brigitte Gabriel.

I read one of her books - she and her family spent about seven years hiding out in the remains of their house (basically a crater) after the PLO gained effective control of things in her part of Lebanon.

People have to understand the threat or stop their propaganda like Obama and his administration are doing trying to push Islam on all of us.

Radical Agenda for Ground Zero Mosque ~ NY City Community Board Approves Mosque


NYC community board OKs ground zero mosque plans

NEW YORK (AP)


After hours of contentious public comment, a New York City community board voted late Tuesday to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near ground zero.

"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said. "We believe that this is significant step in the Muslim community to counteract the hate and fanaticism in the minority of the community."




.




FOX Hannity's show


The 'Cordoba Initiative' has announced plans to build a $100-million plus mosque overlooking Ground Zero at the World Trade Center.

Its leader, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, says it "will serve as the platform to launch a broader vision of Muslim-West harmony and interdependence." As he has made clear, Rauf supports supplementing our Constitution by making sharia law optional -- optional at least for now -- for Muslims living here in America. Debra Burlingame and Robert Spencer discussed this last night on-air with Sean Hannity.

IMAM FEISAL ABDUL RAUF, BEHIND GROUND ZERO MOSQUE: We have the right to build this building as a right. We don't need any zoning variations. We can just go ahead and build it without permissions or expressions of support from anybody.


BURLINGAME: Yes. But — but when he published this in 2007 in the Muslim world, he didn't call it "What's Right With Islam" and a later title, "What's Right with America." He called it "A Call to Prayer From the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Da'wah From the Heart of America..."

HANNITY: Meaning?

BURLINGAME: "... Post-9/11." Robert, tell him what da'wah means.

SPENCER: Da'wah is Islamic proselytizing. And in the Islamic law, da'wah precedes jihad. You call the nonbelievers to Islam. And if they refuse to accept it, then you initiate the jihad against them. But the whole goal of both da'wah and jihad is to impose Islamic law or Sharia upon the nonbelievers as a political system, not as a religious one.

HANNITY: What about the controversy — controversy involving his father?

SPENCER: The controversy involving his father involves the Muslim Brotherhood and the fact that this guy has ties to this group that is, in its own words, "dedicated to eliminating and destroying western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house."

HANNITY: So you both believe — and as I read this, this is becoming more and more alarming to me. And you have been very nice to give me a copy of the book and tell me about the translation when it was first published, you know, in other countries — that he would want to impose or at least allow for Muslims to have the ability to transcend the American court system.

SPENCER: Oh, yes.


.


Wild Thing's comment........

God help us all. The vote was 29-to-1 in favor of the plan, with 10 abstentions. Only one didn’t forget. Screw new York city! The Muslims attack it and they give them the keys.

"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said.

It is the seed of surrender that will lead to unending violence. Townley is the worst kind of coward.

“Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any AMERICA because some foreign soldier will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!” Chesty Puller


Sharia law and the US constitution are like oil and water. They would have to basically completely destroy the foundation right out from under this country to get even a hint of Sharia law passed.

Muslims have no right to dictate laws in this society !

It is shameful that they have supporters in our government!!!!

Taliban Responds To Obama Wanting To Reach Out To Them and Bombs US Bases in Afghanistan


The assault on the Kandahar air field comes just days after two Taliban attacks on US and Nato forces in Afghanistan.

The group says it has now begun its “summer offensive” and will increasingly hit foreign troops.

Codenamed Al Fatah, or victory, the operation anticipates a planned summer offensive by coalition forces in Kandahar, aimed at driving the Taliban from their traditional heartland.


.

The Taliban launched yet another ground attack on a major Coalition military base in Afghanistan.


A Taliban force launched a coordinated attack today against Kandahar Airfield, the largest base in southern Afghanistan and a major hub for operations in the south. More than 10,000 Coalition soldiers and contractors are based at the airfield.


The attack began at about 8:00 p.m. local time when Taliban fighters moved close to the perimeter and fired mortars and rockets at the sprawling airbase. Three rockets landed inside the base; one struck a helicopter terminal and another a shopping center

The attack is the third major strike against the Coalition in six days, and the fourth attempt to overrun a Coalition and Afghan base in the country during the same time period. The largest assault targeted the airbase at Bagram in central Afghanistan, the largest Coalition base in the country.


On May 17, a team of three suicide bombers armed with assault rifles attacked a border police headquarters in Kandahar. The first suicide bomber detonated at the outer wall, opening a hole that allowed the two other bombers to enter the compound. Police killed the two other bombers during a gunfight that lasted nearly an hour.

On May 18, a suicide bomber rammed into a Coalition convoy in Kabul. Twelve civilians and two colonels, two lieutenant colonels, and two soldiers were killed in the attack.


On May 19, a Taliban assault team attempted to storm the US airbase in Bagram in Parwan province, but was beaten back by US forces defending the base. An estimated 30 to 40 Taliban fighters carried out the assault. During the attack, 16 Taliban fighters, including four suicide bombers, as well as a US military contractor were killed.


.


I posted last that Obama Wants to Reach Out to Hezbollah Terrorists

The Taliban responded this week with 3 attacks in 6 days, striking at the heart of the NATO mission in Afghanistan.

On Tuesday May 18th, a Taliban suicide bomber targeted a NATO convoy in Kabul killing 5 US troops and a Canadian soldier.

On Wednesday May 19th Taliban forces launched an early morning attack on Bagram Air Force Base killing a contractor and injuring 9 US troops.

On Saturday the Taliban launched a separate attack on Kandahar base.

As Obama extended his hand – The Taliban launched a rocket on Bagram.


.


On Tuesday… Deputy National Security Advisor John Brennan told an audience that the Obama Adminstration wants to reach out to the “moderate” elements of the Hezbolllah terror group.

On Friday… The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah inaugurated a “Jihadist Museum” in Milta, east of the port city of Sidon, for tourists. The jihadist tourist museum will highlight the achievements of its “resistance” in southern Lebanon against Israel.

Obama is dangerous to our country, to our troops and people need to know the things mentioned above are happening. Most of the media is not covering this.

Wonder how many of those deaths are connected with the inability to act when needed. Obama is aiding and abetting the enemy with these ROEs. That should keep anyone with a conscience at the Pentagon awake at night.


God Bless our troops and keep safe while in harm's way from enemies, both foreign and domestic. Their courage and sacrifice is what keeps our nation.

Islam Cleric Al-Awlaki Warns of Future Attacks Against The United States





Islam Cleric Al-Awlaki Warns of Future Attacks Against The United States

Awlaki is warning of more terrorist attacks man caused disasters


Fugitive American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki warned of new attacks on Americans at home and abroad in a new video released over the weekend.

Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to be hiding in Yemen, accused U.S. forces of deliberately killing women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan. And he praised Maj. Nidal Hasan, the U.S. Army psychiatrist charged in the November massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, calling him "one of my students."


"Oh, America, if you transgress against us, we will transgress against you, and you keep killing our people, we will kill your people," Anwar al-Awlaki says in the video. "This is the image that we need to present. These American soldiers heading to Afghanistan and Iraq will be killed. We will kill them if we can, there in Fort Hood, or we will kill them in Afghanistan and Iraq."

U.S. authorities also have linked al-Awlaki to the failed attempt to blow up a U.S.-bound jetliner in December.

I hope a drone finds him soon. Just curious, why hasn’t his citenzenship been revoked?


This below is from 2004 article in US News and World Report on Al-Aulaqi provided this curious tidbit about the “imam”:

The probe of the 9/11 attacks soon led Washington FBI agents back to San Diego, where they found that al-Awlaki had twice been busted for soliciting prostitutes in 1996 and 1997 but had avoided jail time. Al-Awlaki has previously described these charges as “bogus.” But FBI agents hoped al-Awlaki might cooperate with the 9/11 probe if they could nab him on similar charges in Virginia. FBI sources say agents observed the imam allegedly taking Washington-area prostitutes into Virginia and contemplated using a federal statute usually reserved for nabbing pimps who transport prostitutes across state lines. But in March 2002, al-Awlaki abruptly left the country for Yemen. “When he left town, it was as if the air went out of the balloon,” says one FBI source. Al-Awlaki briefly returned to the United States in October 2002, but federal authorities did not have sufficient cause to detain him, even though his name popped up on a terrorist “lookout” database. Now he’s back in the Middle East, where FBI agents are said to be keeping their eyes on him.

Homeland Security Alert: Terror suspect may be headed to Texas through Mexico




Homeland Security Alert: Terror suspect may be headed to Texas through Mexico

KHOU.com


HOUSTON — A Homeland Security Alert is asking Houston police and Harris County Sheriff’s deputies to keep their eyes open for a potential terrorist.

The alert focuses on Mohamed Ali, a suspected member of the terrorist group Al Shabaab. It indicates he may be traveling to the U.S. through Mexico.

Al Shabaab is a terrorist group based in Somalia with links to the Somali attacks dramatized in the movie “Blackhawk Down.” A few months ago, the group announced its allegiance to Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.

“[Al Shabaab operatives] are certainly a real threat to U.S. security and an increasing threat to U.S. security,” said Rice University Baker Institute Fellow Joan Neuhaus Schaan.

The route from Somalia to Texas is shorter than Americans would like to think. It goes through Mexico. Two weeks ago, a federal indictment was filed in San Antonio against a Somali citizen. It alleges Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane led a “large-scale smuggling enterprise,” moving east Africans into the U.S., including members of a terrorist group called AIAI.

“It was hundreds of individuals,” Neuhaus Schaan said, in referrence to the indictment.

The current indictment has three counts for making false statements in regard to immigration for allegedly lying about his ties to terrorist groups.

Why would Al Shabaab come to the U.S?

“Either to recruit provide more funding or serve as operatives or sleepers for some future activity,” Neuhaus Schaan said.

If authorities are right, Mohamed Ali is hardly alone and a terror network is following well-worn human smuggling routes into the Lone Star State.

“There would be a reasonable chance to have him [Mohamed Ali] coming through Houston,” Neuhaus Schaan said. “They [Al Shabaab] have been pretty busy in Texas.”

Obama's New Term for the 'War on Terror': CVE "Countering Violent Extremism"





Obama's New Term for the 'War on Terror': CVE


It's not the "War on Terror" anymore. We've know that since Obama took office. He does not see it as a "war," and he certainly won't allow "War against Islamic Extremism" to be used, or the "War against Islamic Jihadists." But Marc Ambinder has picked up on the Obama Administration's new euphemism to keep from stating the obvious - "Countering Violent Extremism:"




The New Term for the War on Terror


The Atlantic

If you blinked, you might have missed it. The Obama administration has unofficially rebranded "war on terror" phrase that dominated public discourse throughout the Bush administration. The replacement phrase, carefully chosen, is "CVE" -- Countering Violent Extremism.


Early in the administration, the Office of Management and Budget changed the wording of the line item under which the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were funded. They called it "Overseas Contingency Operations." That phrase was never intended to be for public consumption (and public ridicule), but burrowed bureaucrats leaked it to the press, a field day was had.


Countering Violent Extremism is noticeable for two words that aren't there: some variant of "jihad," which is the preferred predicate for counter-terrorism-fighting conservatives, and "war," which is because the administration has put de-radicalization alongside the Predator drones as a primary instrument of combat. No mention of Islam, of course. That's because the administration wants to try and decouple the notion of combating terrorism from the Muslim faith itself. BTW: when I first heard the phrase, I assumed it stood for "combating violent extremism." But no -- the word combat denotes military action only -- Obama's approach combines hard and soft power.

The phrase first appears to have been used in public by the director of national intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair (Ret.), and its utterance was picked up by Newsweek.

Though there hasn't been any formal announcement, folks in the counteterrorism business are now using CVE in the same way they used GWOT -- Global War On Terror just five years ago.

They are wasting their time in coming up with stupid terminology for the war rather than crushing the evil of islamic terrorism. They think that they can win the war by coming up with a certain "buzzword".

God bless our brave troops who are fighting and dying for our freedom and our way of life. They need our prayers now more than ever because they are under the command of this totally incompetent, stupid, and weak Obama regime.

Investigative Report Shows How Terrorists are Using Mexican Border as "Back Door" into the U.S.


Investigative Report Shows How Terrorists are Using Mexican Border as "Back Door" into the U.S.


WSB-2 Atlanta video report on what they found out about just who is crossing into the United States along the border with Mexico. They went to Arizona, and found there are "thousands" of (OTM - "other than Mexicans) who are using the Mexican border as an open door into the U.S., and many of them are from Islamic nations where there are terror networks that mean us harm:


"We found illegals from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen in custody."

Ranchers along the border have found "Islamic prayer rugs," and military-style clothing with insignias depicting a plane crashing into the twin towers. Known terrorists are suspected to have used the southern border area to enter the country.

The video features J.D. Hayworth, GOP challenger to John McCain's U.S. Senate seat, who says "the back door" to America is open along the border, and it is a grave threat to the nation.

The FBI executed search warrants at a home in Watertown and a gas station in Brookline Thursday morning in connection with the attempted bombing in Times Square earlier this month.


4 STATES

The search is ongoing in four states – Massachusetts, Maine, New York and New Jersey.

Three people were arrested.

Authorities said there is "no known immediate threat to the public or any active plot against the United States."

At an afternoon news conference, Gov. Deval Patrick added that there was "no immediate threat" to people or property in Massachusetts.

3 ARRESTS

Patrick confirmed that two of the three arrests were in the Boston area.

A spokesperson for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told WBZ a third person was arrested in Maine.

Two of the men had a "direct connection" to suspect Faisal Shahzad, a top Massachusetts law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

All three have been charged with immigration violations, which are not criminal charges. They are now in the custody of ICE.

Law enforcement officials have confirmed the names of the two men arrested in Massachusetts are Pir Khan and Aftab Khan.

While Pir Khan was arrested outside the Doubletree Hotel in Allston, officials will not confirm that Aftab Khan was the man taken into custody at a home in Watertown.

A spokesperson for the Doubletree on Soldier's Field Road tells WBZ that troopers were outside the hotel this morning, which isn't that unusual. But around 8 a.m., a cab pulled in to the area and troopers arrested the driver.

Khan works for Swadi Cab Inc., which leases its vehicles through MetroCab. The owner of the company, Sher Wahab, tells WBZ that Khan has been a driver with Swadi for eight or nine years. And for that time, he's never had a problem with him.

Wahab said he is shocked by the news.

Khan's cab has been impounded by police.

The second suspect was taken into custody at 39 Waverly Ave. in Watertown, who, according to a source, is a "key player" in the investigation.

Another man was questioned at the gas station in Brookline. That man was later released.

"DON'T MOVE"

Barbara Lacerra told WBZ she saw the arrest unfold from her home nearby at about 5:45 a.m.

"(We) heard the FBI guy yell 'FBI don't blah, blah move!'"
Lacerra said several FBI agents with guns blocked off the road, went into the two-family home and took out a young man in shackles and handcuffs. She noted that he was quiet and cooperative.

Another witness who lives across the street told WBZ's Kathy Curran that boxes of paper, a computer and bags of money were also removed from the home.

THE MONEY TRAIL

A law enforcement official told CBS News the searches are targeting money remitters - the money trail - and do not, at this time, point to any co-conspirators with Faisal Shahzad, the lone man charged in the plot at this point.

The working theory is that the remitters were merely moving money and have no complicity in the plot.

According to CBS News Justice Department and Homeland Security correspondent Bob Orr, "it is possible they may have helped Shahzad move money without any knowledge of his plans... making them 'unwitting participants.'"

"It's also possible they had some foreknowledge, and that's what's under investigation."
"The key point is... none of this is conclusive... and investigators do not yet know if the three are complicit in the plot."

BROOKLINE LOCATION

FBI agents and police were also at a Mobil gas station on Harvard Street in Brookline, about one block from Coolidge Corner.

Police told WBZ's Karen Anderson they closed the Cypress Auto Mart around 6 a.m., but they would not say anything about what's going on there.

Sources told her an employee was questioned inside for several hours after he came to open up the store.

Investigators also searched his car, which is registered to the address of the home being searched in Watertown.

He was not taken into custody and was released just after 11 a.m. The owner's brother picked him up and drove off with no comment.

The employee also just returned from a trip to Pakistan to visit his family.

Shahzad is a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent and is believed to have spent five months there recently.

Elias Audy, the gas station owner, would not speak to reporters, but his niece told WBZ's Beth Germano the investigation is not connected to his business and that authorities are focusing on the employee.

From the Boston Herald

Governor’s Councilor Marilyn Devaney, who lives around the corner from the home raided this morning, said, “This is so scary. This whole laissez-faire immigration thing is putting everyone at risk. We’re just fortunate that we’re getting these people before they’re successful. Here we are just six miles from Boston.”


Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Warren T. Bamford said searches are being conducted at locations through the Northeast.

“We can confirm that search warrants have been executed in several locations in the Northeast in connection with the investigation into the attempted Times Square bombing,” Bamford said. “A number of individuals encountered during the searches were taken into federal custody for alleged immigration violations.“

Bamford said the searches “are the product of evidence that has been gathered in the investigation subsequent to the attempted Times Square bombing and do not relate to any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States.”

4 Scary Ways Terror and Immigration Are Tied Together

FOX News

By Peter Huessy

( Peter Huessy is Senior Defense Consultant at the National Defense University Foundation.)


Our own immigration system is so riddled with holes that terrorists can drive into our country in an explosive laden truck just like the Times Square bomb suspect did.

We can only hope that the Times Square near-bombing will focus our attention on the conventional wisdom surrounding from the left surrounding immigration reform. First there's the belief that no attempt at reform can succeed without a generous amnesty. Then, there's the belief that immigration "coyotes" and other scam artists do not associate with terrorists. And finally, there's the misguided belief that our relatively open border with Mexico, and thus by default the rest of the world, is no big deal, and can be resolved through the simple act of issuing more work visas.

In my own conversations with experts on immigration, the drug cartels and terrorism, it has always been an article of faith that while drug cartels certainly use illegal immigration as a conduit for smuggling drugs, terrorists are not welcome among the coyotes that smuggle migrants and vice versa. But that is changing.

In the laptop captured from a top FARC commander, evidence was found of links between Chavez and Russia (from where weapons and explosives would come and be transferred) and Hezbollah and drug syndicates (where FARC would help Hezbollah blow up pipelines carrying Mexican oil for America).

I'm not concerned about the links between terrorism and immigration because it's the issue of the day. And it's not because Arizona has passed legislation that enables local and state law enforcement to actually “enforce” a 1940 federal statute dealing with whether legal residents but not citizens of the U.S. have to carry “papers” (they do). Nor am I focused on it because the Senate is, once again, considering bringing up "compressive immigration reform."

No, the events that have made me even more concerned about immigration are four-fold.

1. Dozens of bomb plotters in attacks on the United States have used the immigration system to marry women here in America and thus gain citizenship faster and with less scrutiny than they otherwise would. This includes the bombing suspect arrested for attempting to blow up people in New York City and Times Square, a point made eloquently and most recently by Michelle Malkin.

2. In 2008, I testified before the Maryland State Assembly that driver licenses should not be given to those illegally in America. Remember Muhammad Atta had a driver’s license and when stopped in North Carolina for a traffic violation, the local police officer could not access immigration records to determine that Atta was here on an expired visa.

After testifying, I remained outside the hearing room and listened to a local Montgomery County representative to the Annapolis Assembly being interviewed by Mexican television about the oppressive nature of such a law as forbidding those illegally in the U.S. from getting driver licenses. She told a Mexican television reporter that there was really no such thing as an illegal immigrant: “They are all here simply waiting to adjust their status."

3. Then there is the news that Syria, probably via Iran and North Korea, has transferred Scud missiles to Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based terrorist subsidiary of Iran. Remember, Scud missiles used to be what we thought about when thinking about missile threats from Saddam’s Iraq and Kim’s North Korea. It appears everyone has graduated—Kim to long range rockets and Hezbollah to Scuds!

4. Finally, there's the likelihood that Iran will get a nuclear weapon and transfer it to a specially created and trained terror group to smuggle it into the United States. Open borders make that an easier job. Scam marriages do too.

So, here we are congratulating ourselves for capturing the Times Square suspect when our own immigration system is so riddled with holes that terrorists can drive right across our borders in an explosive laden truck and with a driver’s license secured in any number of states blind to current threats. And we congratulate ourselves when our supposed potential peace partners, with whom were are so eager to engage, are either sending rockets to terrorists or building nuclear bombs destined for an American city.

Why then are Washington elites hell-bent on approving amnesty provisions as a part of what is known as “compressive immigration reform?" What part of “terror-sponsoring state,” “terrorist,” “open borders” and “bomb” do they not understand? And what do we make of the common complaint that we only wish to secure our borders and make our immigration system synonymous with “common sense” because we are a racist country inhospitable to ethnic groups other than “Anglos?" God, has anyone who claims this actually walked around any American city recently? Amnesty is objectionable because the person who gets to decide whether or not 16 million estimated illegal immigrants get to stay in this country are the illegal immigrants themselves!! They are, of course, “just adjusting their status."

Speaking of the millions of people already here illegally, David Broder quoted the late Senator Kennedy as being dumbfounded about why people could not understand why the illegal immigrants already here in the USA had to stay here. The assumption: we cannot send them home or they will not go home. And so if they wish to stay here in America, well, they get to stay here. And if jihadists intent on blowing us all to kingdom come, want to come here from rural Pakistan and marry an American citizen—well aren’t we all in favor of multiculturalism? (Parenthetically, what skills are we adding to the American workforce by such an immigration policy?)

Immigration policy is now, by default, no longer a question of whom we as Americans desire to accept into our country. It has become a question of who wants to come to America whether we like it or not. And that is why so many citizens of this country are supportive of the Arizona law and against the amnesty provisions of past immigration reform laws. We want our sovereignty back. We want to decide who gets to be future Americans—because we value American citizenship and believe it should not simply be given away, either through amnesty, sham marriages or some wacky notion of multiculturalism. And we care who comes in and out of our country. Especially if they are armed. Armed with a bomb. Or a nuclear weapon. Feeling safe?

Hmm, arrested on suspected immigration violations. Paging Arizona, paging Arizona.

“Governor’s Councilor Marilyn Devaney, who lives around the corner from the home raided this morning, said, “This is so scary. This whole laissez-faire immigration thing is putting everyone at risk.”

AMEN, lady!

And the last part of this post from FOX News is an awesome article about this.

Adding in to all of this, we have Obama will cut $42 million in funding to New York City just days after the attempted bombing in Times Square.

“It’s an absolute direct slap in the face of the people of New York,” said Rep. Peter King.

OMG Plans Continue For Mosque to be Built Near Ground Zero



Sean Hannity has Brigitte Gabriel and Mike Ghouse on to discuss the outrage over plans for a mosque to be built near Ground Zero.

Brigitte Gabriel pointed out concerns over the fact that the father of the Imam that would run the mosque was a member of the 'Muslim Brotherhood' along with Ayman al-Zawahiri, the second man of Al-Qaeda.



.


Hello New Yorkers and all Americans out there. Save the date, June 6, 2010 and come to Ground Zero for a rally to stop the spread of Islam in the US. It is time that this little known news item gets blasted into the public arena.

The background information begins on 9/11 at 45 Park Place, the Burlington Building, where a portion of one of the planes, either the Flight 11 or 175, crashed through the roof as 80 employees were seeking safety in the basement. For several years the owner unsuccessfully tried to sell the building for $18 million. Finally, in June 2009, the property was purchased by an investment firm called “Soho Properties,” with one of the individual investors listed as the Cordoba Initiative, a name militant Muslims often say when they refer to the glory of the Muslim empire during their occupation of Spain.

Further investigation shows that this “interfaith group” was founded by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is the spiritual leader of another nearby mosque, Al Farah at 245 West Broadway. The records show that the 61-year old Iman paid $4.85 million, all in cash. With an additional investment of $150 million the Park Place property’s 50,000 square feet of air rights could be developed into a 13-story full-fledged Islamic Mosque and Community Center, It’s Feisal’s dream that this could potentially become one of the largest NYC mosques to serve the ever-growing Muslim population. Presently, the building is legally being used every Friday as an extension of Imam Feisal’s mosque, as overflow prayer space to accommodate the growing Muslim community in NYC.

At a May 5 meeting of the Lower Manhattan community board the project was supported including an opening date of September 11, 2011, which will be the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

One has to wonder what this board was thinking when they gave their approval or why it has been encouraged by city officials and the surrounding neighborhood. It is apparent that Mayor Bloomberg’s Director of the Office of Immigrant Affairs, Fatima Ahama, Imam Feisal’s wife, Daisy Khan, who serves on the advisory team for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, and Lynn Rasic, a spokesperson for the memorial, all are speaking out in support “The idea of a cultural center that will strengthen ties between Muslims and people of all faiths and backgrounds.”


There will be a rally on June 6, D-Day 1944, which is being hosted by Pamela Geller, Executive Director of the human rights group ‘Stop Islamization of America (SIOA)’ and is joined by ACT for America, Manhattan; Z Street; Freedom Defense Initiative; Faith Freedom International, No Mosque at Ground Zero and many more to be announced. Miss Geller has commented: “What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in the eye of America. The date for this rally has been chosen symbolically as the day Americans acted against the evil of Nazism. Now it is time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.” She continues by saying:


The only Muslim center that should be built in the shadow of the WTC is one that is devoted to expunging the Koran and all Islamic teachings of the violent jihad that they prescribe, as well as all hateful texts and incitement to violence.”

Questions need to be asked by New Yorkers like: Where did Imam Feisel get $4.85 million in cash to buy this property? Where will the $150 investments come from? It is a significant fact that a good percentage of the hundreds of mosques being built or already built in the USA during the past two decades have had support from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Iran, all with radical Islamic activists. In addition to these sites being places of worship, they also act as a center for the distribution of propaganda literature, written in Arabic and Urdu and proven to be radical in content. You do not have to go too far to already see this. In Brooklyn, Queens, and Detroit the mosques are growing. Recently, the government discontinued work on a major Iranian-funded mosque and center in NYC that had been quietly operating under the auspices of Pahlavi Foundation.

So, come to this rally on June 6 and stand with those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and those who see the slow creeping of Islamic Sharia laws quietly coming to America!

This is just sooo shocking to me that they would not only do such a thing but that whoever came up with this idea was not shot down immediately! I know if they had sugested it to me I would have laid into them like they had never been before.

This is a DISGRACE!!!!


This is definately a slap in the face to Americans from that Muslim in the WH.

Just Like Obama, AG Eric Holder Refuses to Say “Radical Islam” at Hearing on Faisal Shahzad





Keep America Safe

Pressed during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee today, US Attorney General refuses to use the term “radical Islam” when discussing the motives behind the Times Square bomber.

The Obama White House removed confessed terrorist Faisal Shahzad from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.

Terrorist Faisal Shahzad had substantial connections to the Taliban, reached out to the Taliban, was influenced by Yemeni terror leader Anwar al Awlaki, made at least a dozen return trips to Pakistan since arriving in the United States in 1999, and he bought a one way ticket with cash to Pakistan.

He was “blogging” and asking for jihad as far back as 2006 but the Obama Administration took him off the terror watch list anyway.

But, Eric Holder won’t blame “radical Islam.”


.


Wild Thing's comment........

One should only have to know Islam and be aware that it is a radical and pure evil.

Notice the way he says ISS-laam, not Islam like most Americans. Clearly, he cannot bring himself to say anything negative about his beloved ISS-laam.


The only added thing I disagree with is that it is ALL of Islam I would not call it just the radical ones that are Islamists. But ALL , every breathing follower of Islam.


It is not possible to be a "good" Muslim!!!

Anti-America Obama Cuts NY Anti-Terror Funds Even After Times Sq. Bombing Attempt






Obama to cut NYC anti-terror funding even after Times Sq. bombing attempt

New York Post

The Obama administration will announce tomorrow it has slashed anti-terror funds for New York City, despite the attempted Times Square bombing less than two weeks ago that underscored the enormous threat to the city.

The Department of Homeland Security informed New York officials yesterday that grants to the city were cut 27 percent for mass transit security and 25 percent for port security.

The mass transit funds dropped $42 million, from $153 million last year to $111 this year.

Port security funds suffered a $11.2 million cut, from $45 million to $33.8 million, officials said.


The timing of the announcement drew howls from New York lawmakers on Capitol Hill, whose recent pleas for increased anti-terror spending in the Big Apple – along with the same plea from Mayor Bloomberg – fell flat.

They said the Times Square bomb attempt shows that New Yok remains the top target for terrorists and that the city deserves the lion’s share of federal spending on security.
"For the administration to announce these cuts two weeks after the attempted Times Square bombing shows they just don’t get it and are not doing right by New York City on anti-terrorism funding," Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said.
He urged the White House to reconsider its decision.
"Instead of distributing funding all over the country, they should focus their attention where the greatest threat exists — right here in New York," he said.

Homeland Security officials did not immediately respond to questions about the funding level. But they previously said the city receives ample funding, despite cuts.

Rep. Pete King (R-LI), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, said the cuts were "dangerous and unconscionable."
"The threat against New York City, the top target of al-Qaeda, is increasing, not decreasing," he said, noting that the city has been the target of at least 11 foiled terror plots since 9/11.
"The Times Square attempt served as a wake-up call for many, but apparently not for the Obama Administration, which should be dramatically increasing New York City’s homeland security funding, not decreasing it."

It is not the first time President Obama has short-changed the city on homeland security dollars.

Obama has moved for the second year in a row to eliminate a $30 million program called "Securing our Cities."

It would create a ring of radiation detectors around the city to monitor for nuclear and dirty bombs.

Last year, Schumer and King succeeded in fighting to restore $20 million for the nuke detectors along highways, toll plazas, bridges, tunnels and waterways.

The administration also decided to redeploy the Coast Guard’s Maritime Safety and Security Team in New York to Boston Harbor.

Hate Filled Muslim Monster Jew-hater And Supporter Of Genocide Flushed Out By David Horowitz At A Speech In San Diego





Breitbart

A Muslim Student Association (MSA) member admitted publicly during a question and answer session with conservative David Horowitz in San Diego that she supports a second Holocaust. During the Question and Answer period David Horowitz had a chilling exchange with a member of the MSA in which he prodded her to reveal the depraved depths of her Jew-hatred.


Horowitz: Okay. Will you condemn Hamas, here and now?
MSA member: I’m sorry, what?

Horowitz: Will you condemn Hamas?

MSA member: Would I condemn Hamas?

Horowitz: As a terrorist organization. Genocidal organization.

MSA member: Are you asking me to put myself on a cross?

Horowitz: So you won’t. I have actually had this experience many times. You didn’t actually read the pamphlet, because the pamphlet is chapter and verse. The main connection is that the MSA is part of the Muslim Brotherhood Network as revealed…

MSA member: I don’t think you understood what I meant by that. I meant if I say something, I am sure that I will be arrested, for reasons of homeland security. So if you could please just answer my question.

Horowitz: If you condemn Hamas, Homeland Security will arrest you?

MSA member: If I support Hamas, because your question forces me to condemn Hamas. If I support Hamas, I look really bad.

Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it. Case closed. I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there. And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would. And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’ So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way. I am a Jew. The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. For or Against it?

MSA member: For it.

Horowitz: Thank you for coming and showing everybody what’s here.

It’s stunning that these people are here...in the open...and one of their brothers is in the White House. David Horowitz is actively confronting this domestic terrorist front (Moslem Student Association-MSA).

And also WTF is this about Hitler youth week? Sheesh! What these idiots don’t get is that Hitler would have wiped them out too ! His idea of a master race, blue eyes and blond hair, doesn’t really fit your typical muslim.

Why are the Muslims Islamofascist muzzies wandering around in America in burkas or headscarves, etc. Some working at our airports.

Why are they being permitted to build mosques and “Islamic Centers” all over the world and in America.

What part of the Muslims want us all dead do they not get?

Mullah Omar Captured!




Through key intelligence sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan, I have just learned that reclusive Taliban leader and top Osama bin Laden ally, Mullah Omar has been taken into custody.


Big Government


According to the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program there is a bounty of up to $10 million on Omar for sheltering Osama bin-Laden and his al-Qaeda network in the years prior to the September 11 attacks as well as the period during and immediately thereafter.

At the end of March, US Military Intelligence was informed by US operatives working in the Af/Pak theater on behalf of the D.O.D. that Omar had been detained by Pakistani authorities. One would assume that this would be passed up the chain and that the Secretary of Defense would have been alerted immediately. From what I am hearing, that may not have been the case.

When this explosive information was quietly confirmed to United States Intelligence ten days ago by Pakistani authorities, it appeared to take the Defense Department by surprise. No one, though, is going to be more surprised than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It seems even with confirmation from the Pakistanis themselves, she was never brought up to speed.


Over the weekend, Clinton accused Pakistani Government officials of “holding back” on bin Laden intelligence. In an interview Sunday on CBS “60 Minutes,” she said:

“I believe that somewhere in this government are people who know where Usama bin Laden and Al Qaeda is, where Mullah Omar and the leadership of the Afghan Taliban is, and we expect more cooperation to help us bring to justice, capture or kill those who attacked us on 9/11.”

They know all right and so do we, at least when it comes to Mullah Omar. We have known since the end of March and we had it confirmed ten days ago by the Pakistanis. So why didn’t the State Department and the CIA know?

Developing.

The Pocono Mountains New Haven For Terrorists





The Pocono Mountains New Haven For Terrorists


by Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania has become a staging area for terrorism and the establishment of a universal caliphate.

The latest evidence supporting this claim comes from Faisal Shahzad’s trip to Matamoras, at the foothills of the Poconos, where he purchased boxes of M-88s from a fireworks store.

The high powered firecrackers, which sell for $10.00 a box, ended up as detonators for a crude bomb that Shahzad tried to set off in Times Square last weekend.

Matamoras is less than an hour’s drive from the George Washington Bridge.

Fifteen miles from Matamoras is Saylorsburg, a sleepy rural Pocono community, where powerful Turkish pasha Fethullah Gulen has established a 45 acre mountain fortress. The fortress remains protected by 100 Turkish guards and a sentry post. Local residents have complained of automatic gunfire coming from the complex and of a low flying helicopter that surveys the area for would-be intruders.

Gulen, who has been labeled “the most dangerous Islamist in the world,” has amassed a fortune in excess of $25 billion for use in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the established of a New Islamic World Order.

In 1998, Gulen fled to the United States from his native Turkey to avoid prosecution on charges that he was attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular government in order to establish an Islamic republic.

With his vast fortune, Gulen established the Justice and Democratic Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma or AKP) which gained control of Turkey in 2002.

Under the AKP, Turkey has transformed from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques – - one for every 350- citizens – - the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians – - and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.

The tentacles of Gulen’s movement now stretch throughout central Asia, including the newly formed Russian republics of Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmernistan which are becoming increasingly Islamic and radicalized.

Gulen has also established thousands of madrassahs (Islamic religious schools) throughout the world, including 85 in the United States.

The Poconos have lured other radical Muslims, including the six terrorists who sought to inflict mass casualties at Fort Dix, a military base in New Jersey.

In February 2007, the would-be terrorists rented a place in Big Bass Lake, a gated community of 1,400 homes in the tiny Pocono town of Gouldsboro.

During their month-long stay at Big Bass Lake, the six radical Muslims – - all foreign-born and in their 20s, rented a public firing range to practice attacks on the military base.

Because of its close proximity to New York and other major metropolitan areas, the Poconos appears an ideal place to launch terror attacks on U.S. soil.

“We still have very remote areas. These people can come and get lost,” says Robert G. Werts, program manager for the Northeast Pennsylvania Terrorism Task Force.

John Horgan, director of the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at Penn State University, maintains that it’s not unusual for terrorists and radical Islamists to seek out areas that lie beneath the radar screen.

“It’s precisely because they’re overlooked that they’re attractive,” Mr. Horgan says. “In these rural areas, you’re not subject to the intense surveillance.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

There are others, one of them is the one in the foothills of the Catskills in NY too. Islamberg.

Where is the bloodhound American ‘free press’ who doggedly overturned every stone in the Watergate case? Where are our nation’s reporters that have placed every Presidential candidate under the microscope of detailed scrutiny; the same press who pursue Bush’s ‘Skull and Bones’ club or ran other candidates off with persistent detective and research work? Why haven’t ‘newsmen’ pursued the 65 blatant lies told by this candidate during the Presidential primaries?

Why has the federal government opted to turn a blind eye to Gulen and his mountain fortress?

There is terrorism we can see, smell and fear, but there is a new kind of terror invading The United States in the form of Sharia law and finance. Condoning it is civilization suicide. Middle East Muslims are coming to America in record numbers and building hate infidel mosques, buying our corporations, suing us for our traditions, but they and the whole subject of Islam is white noise leaving uninformed Americans about who and what is really peaceful.

Is it mere coincidence this same candidate wants to dis-arm our nuclear capability at a time when terrorist Muslim nations are expanding their nuclear weapons capability?

Liz Cheney on FOX News Sunday~ "Obama's First Instinct Is to Inform the Terrorist That He’s Got the Right to Remain Silent”





Liz Cheney on FOX News Sunday

Liz Cheney criticized the Obama administration’s handling of attempted Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad as “insufficient.” Speaking on the Fox News Sunday’s panel, Cheney insisted that the administration’s “first instinct is to inform him [Shahzad] that he’s got the right to remain silent”:

CHENEY: When the administration captures a terrorist and their first instinct is to inform him that he’s got the right to remain silent, that is exactly the wrong way to win this war. When we capture a terrorist, our first instinct has got to be: How do we understand the networks to which this terrorist is connected? How do we understand where he was trained? How do we understand who the leadership is? The administration is approaching this, and again this morning you had John Brennan saying, “Well, this was one-off because he drove the truck alone.” That doesn’t even make sense, it’s inexplicable. But if you aren’t willing to acknowledge that you’re facing a committed network of terrorists as your enemies, and that it’s radical jihadist Islam, then your response to that is gonna be, by definition, insufficient time and time again.

Add in to what she said, the fact that Obama has:

determined to deny that radical Islam has declared war on America.

Obama Announced The US Will Attack Pakistan If There’s a Successful Terror Attack In The US.






New York Times


The Obama Administration announced today that the US will attack Pakistan if there’s a successful terror attack in the US.


The Obama administration has delivered new and stiff warnings to Pakistan after the failed Times Square car bombing that it must urgently move against the nexus of Islamic militancy in the country’s lawless tribal regions, American and Pakistani officials said.

The American military commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, met with the Pakistani military chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, at his headquarters here on Friday and urged Pakistan to move more quickly in beginning a military offensive against the Pakistani Taliban and Al Qaeda in North Waziristan, Americans and Pakistanis familiar with the visit said. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the delicacy of continuing diplomatic efforts here.

The Pakistani-American man who admitted to the Times Square attack, Faisal Shahzad, 30, told American investigators that he had received training in North Waziristan, the main base for the Pakistani Taliban, Al Qaeda and other militant groups.

The new pressure from Washington was characterized by both the Pakistani and American officials as a sharp turnaround from the relatively polite encouragement adopted by the Obama administration in recent months.

“We are saying, ‘Sorry, if there is a successful attack, we will have to act’ ” within Pakistan, one of the American officials said.

That issue has been a source of growing tension between the countries. Pakistani officials, already alarmed by the increase in American drone aircraft attacks against militants in northwestern Pakistan, have been extremely sensitive about any hint that American ground troops could become involved in the fight. And attempts by the United States to increase the presence of Special Operations forces there even in an advisory or training role have been met with great resistance by the Pakistanis.

There’s a big difference between telling the Pakistani government this, and making a public statement about it. By going public, Obama has just invited a serious attack. I’d like to know how many people have to die for the attack to be categorized as successful by the OBlahblah administration. 1,000? 10,000? Somehow I don’t think the Pakies are quacking in their sandals.

It was Obama that overturned Bush’s policy and put the terrorist in New York last week on the fast track to citizenship.

Hillary on 60 Minutes: "Very Severe Consequences" If Terror Attack Can Be Traced Back to Pakistan



Watch CBS News Videos Online





CBS

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the Pakistani government has been warned that if a terror operation like the failed Times Square bombing were to be successful and found to be originated in their country, "there would be very severe consequences."

Clinton also acknowledged Pakistan's increased cooperation in the war on terror, but said the U.S. wants and expects even more from the Muslim nation.

The interview was conducted in Washington Friday by "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley for a report to be broadcast this Sunday, May 9, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

"We've made it very clear that if, heaven-forbid, an attack like this that we can trace back to Pakistan were to have been successful, there would be very severe consequences," Clinton tells Pelley. The car bomb that fizzled out in Time Square last week was planted by Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen who was born in Pakistan and says he had terrorist training there.

Obama and his administration must have put the word out for their talking points. Hillary joins Obama in what he said about Pakistan. The above clip is from the "60 Minutes" show tonight.

Obama Administration Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List BEFORE Attempted Attack



Obama Administration Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List Before Attack …

Faisal Shahzad was removed from the national terrorist surveillance list before the Times Square attack.


Faisal Shahzad was removed from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.

CBS

Sources tell CBS News that would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appeared on a Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list – Traveler Enforcement Compliance System (TECS) – between 1999 and 2008 because he brought approximately $80,000 cash or cash instruments into the United States.

The New York Times

The person who bought Faisal’s apartment back in 2004 was interviewed by federal investigators.

George LaMonica, a 35-year-old computer consultant, said he bought his two-bedroom condominium in Norwalk, Conn., from Mr. Shahzad for $261,000 in May 2004. A few weeks after he moved in, Mr. LaMonica said, investigators from the national Joint Terrorism Task Force [JTTF] interviewed him, asking for details of the transaction and for information about Mr. Shahzad. It struck Mr. LaMonica as unusual, but he said detectives told him they were simply “checking everything out.”

Barack Obama began shutting down Bush-era terrorist investigations last year including the investigation of Faisal Shahzad.

We all know what happened next.

Last week Faisal almost blew a hole in the middle of Times Square.

The only thing that saved the people of New York was Faisal’s incompetence.

UPDATE: Faisal Shahzad had contacts with several other terrorist leaders including the radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki, the Taliban Chief, and the Mumbai Massacre mastermind.


ABC

Shahzad also had a web of jihadist contacts that included big names tied to terror attacks in the U.S. and abroad, including the figure who has emerged as a central figure in many recent domestic terror attempts – radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki.
Besides Awlaki, sources say Shahzad was also linked to a key figure in the Pakistani Taliban, its Emir Beitullah Mehsud, who was killed in a drone missile strike in 2009. The Mehsuds had been family friends of Shahzad, who is the son of a former high-ranking Pakistani military officer.

Senators Lieberman, Collins Threaten to Sue Obama White House For Withholding Info on Ft. Hood Shootings




Senators Threaten to Sue Obama White House For Withholding Info on Ft. Hood Shootings

Liberal Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and RINO Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) today announced they are willing to take the Obama White House to court over their refusal to release information on the November 2009 Fort Hood shootings.


The Hill

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and ranking Republican Susan Collins (Maine) on Thursday said they are poised to press their subpoena fight with the Obama administration into court.

Lieberman and Collins, speaking separately, both said the Justice and Defense departments have been uncooperative with their efforts to obtain more information about the November 2009 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 people.

Both senators stopped short of saying they’ve made a final decision, but made it clear they are probably headed toward a court confrontation with administration lawyers based on doubt that the final round of negotiations would bring success.

“If they won’t respond, I think we have an obligation. It’s not easy to enforce a subpoena against the executive branch but I’m going to make the fight,” Lieberman said.
“If we yield to the executive branch’s argument that they can’t provide us these witnesses because there’s a criminal proceeding, we’re going to create a terrible precedent for future Congresses that will allow future administrations to just cite that. It makes no sense to me.”

Rep. Peter King Says There Was 'Criminal Negligence' With The Obama Administration Re: Arrest Of Faisal Shahzad




Rep. Peter King, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, appears on O'Reilly to discuss the arrest of Faisal Shahzad for the Times Square car bomb


Bill O'Reilly talks with Rep. Peter King and Michael Scheuer about the arrest of Faisal Shahzad.

Rep. Peter King expressed concern over the level of information that the media had before the arrest of Shahzad, King said, "I've never seen a situation on such a high priority investigation where so much information, so much damaging information, was leaked by the administration." King said that it was 'criminal negligence' to release so much information before they had detained Shahzad, he said he is going to ask the FBI to investigate who leaked the information, "Because you could have put lives at risk here."

Michael Scheuer said that even though this attack was 'amateurish,' it was "successful in everything except it didn't explode, and so they'll come back again if they're not already in the country." Scheuer also commented on the recent video from the Taliban threatening American cities, he said, "It certainly looks increasingly like it's going to be a credible threat from them...I don't think it's conclusive yet, but I think it increasingly looks like the threat was credible"




.


Wild Thing's comment........

Peter King has a good point I am glad he is speakin out about this. It does seem like the Obama administration purposely leaked information to warn the suspect to get away. They wanted him to escape. King sees right through this motley assemblage of America-haters.

Bloomberg and Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier



Bloomberg thinks Times Square bomber may have not liked health care

Here's the video of Bloomberg telling Katie Couric that the bomber was an angry Tea Partier upset with Obamacare. Small problem for the mayor. The bomber is a Muslim of Pakistani descent and naturalized American citizen who, as such, had to be read his Miranda rights.

Bloomberg's appeasement of the Islamic community is not new. In the days after the Fort Hood shootings last year, Bloomberg welcomed an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Siraj Wahhaj, to a meeting to discuss that shooting. That'd be like asking the fox into the hen house to help identify what killed the hen.




.






El Rushbo: Bloomberg & Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier

RUSH: You know, folks, if this weren’t so serious, it would be hilariously funny. The mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg is telling anybody and everybody that the Times Square bomber had to be somebody unhappy with Obama’s health care plan, a tea partier. And then after it was learned that, no, no, no, this guy’s a Muslim extremist from Pakistan, and there’s a lot more we know about the guy, then Bloomberg comes out, “We’re not going to tolerate any backlash against Middle Easterners or Muslims in New York City.” Of course, backlash against the tea party people was expected, it was hoped for. You have the entire Democrat Party, you have the entire United States legacy media hoping and praying that it was a domestic Republican tea party terrorist who listened to me, that set that bomb in an SUV in Times Square. That’s where we are in the country. I mean everybody knows that Faisal Shahzad, the mayor of New York shoulda known this, Obama shoulda said this in his presser today, everybody knows this guy was upset over the new Arizona immigration law and so he decided to blow up Times Square.

Why didn’t they go for that instead of the tea party and the health care bill? Bloomberg, you’re an absolute blithering, embarrassing idiot. If you’re going to try to relate this to modern politics, tell us that this Muslim from Pakistan is upset over the Arizona law. Health care is yesterday’s news. You are an absolute embarrassment. The whole Democrat Party is an embarrassment, the leftist movement in this country is an embarrassment and the media is so far gone that they’re a joke, an absolute, irresponsible joke. You would not believe what they’re trying to say about me and this oil spill. Before they’re through with this, it’s going to be my fault, not Bush’s, not Obama’s, not BP’s, but mine. I got e-mails last night from people: “Rush, did you really say that oil and water mixed is fine and we shouldn’t do anything?” This is my NFL St. Louis Rams purchase all over again. They’re making up things I didn’t say, and of course these absolute… (sigh) I’m thinking of an anatomy on the human body I could use in a family show to describe these absolute, total, worthless pieces of human debris at MSNBC. I’m in a great mood here, folks, don’t misunderstand anything.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had our boot on the throat of Muslim extremists just like we have our boot on BP, a company who is attempting to produce energy for us to improve our lifestyle and our economic output and our standard of living? Oh, no, we gotta keep a boot, a jackboot on the throat of British Petroleum. We gotta blame them for everything. When we have an obvious example here of predictable terrorism, no, can’t call it what it is. Gotta hold out hope it was a tea party guy run amuck. Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if this SUV had an Obama sticker on it. Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. The original New York Times headline on this was: “US Arrests SUV Owner In Times Square Case.” They then changed it but that was their first headline: “US Arrests SUV Owner.” Fine, so he’s a Democrat. I want to see the Obama sticker on his car. Notice how quickly they got it outta Times Square before anybody could hop and maybe see an “Obama 2012″ bumper sticker on the damn car.

Obama administration says Emirates Airlines Dropped the Ball ( Obama Blames someone else AGAIN)

ABC News


Senior administration officials say that Faisal Shahzad was put on the no fly list on Monday at 12:30 pm ET.

So how was he able to board the Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai?

“It takes a few hours for the airlines system to catch up,” a senior administration official tells ABC news.

Another senior administration official adds that Emirates refreshes their system to update with US intelligence information periodically – but not frequently.

In any case, the first official says that airlines were “within minutes” of Shahzad being put on the no-fly list told to “look at a web-board” and manually check its passenger manifest against the news on the web board.

“That appears to not have happened” the official says. “For whatever reason there was a breakdown at the Emirates level.”

Emirates Airlines provided its locked-in passenger manifest to the Customs and Border Protection agency. The plane at that point can leave. But a CBP official caught Shahzad’s name on the manifest and the plane never left the gate.

“That redundancy is built in,” the official says. “It’s not luck it’s design. It was good work by CBP.”

Former 9/11 Commission vice chair and Democratic congressman Lee Hamilton seems less impressed.

Hamilton reminds ABC News that “the 9/11 commission recommended that you had to have biometric evidence, documentarian evidence of people coming in and exiting” the country. “We’ve done a pretty good job on the first part of it people entering the country. But with regard to those exiting the country we simply have not been able to set up a system to deal with that and it showed in this case.”

Hamilton says “we need to have in this country a system of checking people leaving the country so that we can protect against the very sort of thing that happened here -- or at least almost happened here.”

Officials Arrest Pakistani-American Shahzad Faisal in Times Square Bomb Attempt




US officials arrested Shahzad Faisal of Connecticut tonight in connection to the attempted Times Square bombing.



NEW YORK - Authorities arrested a U.S. citizen in connection with the failed bombing attempt in New York's Times Square as he tried to leave the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.

Faisal Shahzad was arrested at 11:45 p.m. Monday night by Customs and Border Protection agents as he attempted to board an Emirates airlines flight to Dubai at New York's JFK airport, Holder and other officials said.

"It is clear that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans," Holder said.

Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Pakistan, was accused of driving a car bomb into Times Square, authorities said. He will appear in Manhattan Federal Court later on Tuesday.

Holder said the investigation was ongoing, and said that law enforcement officials had gathered "significant additional evidence." He urged Americans to remain vigilant.

"The American people should know that we are deploying every resource available, and we will not rest until we have brought everyone responsible to justice," Holder said.

Earlier, officials told The Associated Press that the suspect recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan, where he had a wife. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was at a sensitive stage.

Shahzad was being held in New York and couldn't be contacted. He has a Shelton, Conn., address and a phone number listed there wasn't in service. Investigators were searching his home.

Law enforcement officials said Shahzad bought the SUV that was parked in Times Square on Saturday from a Connecticut man three weeks ago and paid cash. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case .

NBC's Pete Williams earlier reported the man's name was on an e-mail that was sent to the seller of the car last month, as well as other evidence suggesting he had a role in the attempted bombing.

One federal law enforcement official, according to the Washington Post, cautioned that, while investigators are examining unspecified international communications that may be connected to the attack, "that doesn't get you to an international plot, a multi-organizational plot."

"We're just not there," the official told the Post.

Another U.S. official, recounting a conversation with intelligence officials, was quoted in the Washington Post: "Don't be surprised if you find a foreign nexus. ... They're looking at some telltale signs, and they're saying it's pointing in that direction."


The SUV was parked near offices of Viacom Inc., which owns Comedy Central. The network recently aired an episode of the animated show "South Park" that the group Revolution Muslim had complained insulted the Prophet Muhammad by depicting him in a bear costume.

Barack Obama telephoned handbag vendor Duane Jackson, 58, of Buchanan, N.Y., on Monday to commend him for alerting authorities to the smoking SUV. The White House said Obama thanked Jackson for his vigilance and for acting quickly to prevent serious trouble.

Janet Napolitano: Administration "certainly considering' possiblity of terrorism in car bomb"




Napolitano: Administration 'certainly considering' possibility of terrorism in car bomb

The Hill

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday morning that the administration is "certainly considering" that the car bomb found in New York's Times Square could be an act of terror.

"Luckily, no one is hurt, and now the full attention of city, state and federal law enforcement will be turned to bringing the guilty party to justice in this act of terrorism," New York Gov. David Paterson said in a statement.

When asked about Paterson's characterization of the incident, in which a T-shirt vendor noticed smoke coming from the back of an SUV and notified police, Napolitano said forensic evidence plus video footage from the area was being analyzed.

"We're certainly considering it now that it could be an act of terrorism or was intended to be an act of terrorism," Napolitano said on "Fox News Sunday."

Napolitano said they were "not ruling anything out."

On ABC's "This Week," Napolitano indicated that officials see it as an isolated incident.

"Right now, we have no evidence that it is anything other than a one-off, but we are alerting state, local officials around the country, letting them know what is going on," she said.

Napolitano said there wasn't an indication that New Yorkers should be too alarmed.

"Times Square I think is now safe, and I believe that right now, we have no information other than it is a one-off," she said. "But nonetheless, we are alerting state and local law enforcement, everybody to be on their toes."

UM....She used the "T" word? Isn't that verboten?

Well, that's just plain being mean-spirited and hateful to think that. ( rolling my eyes) Can’t putting anything over on this woman, can you? I’m glad she’s on top of it. I feel much safer now.

I guess she just hasn’t figured out how to blame the tea party yet.

The only way to respond to the idiocy is with the truth:

Of course it was terrorism. The only question is who were the perpetrators. Anyone who cannot decide whether an act like this is “terrorism” until they know who the perpetrator is, is “politicizing” terrorism

Why isn’t she home making cookies or something . THIS is what I have protecting my life from terrorists????

I want a former military, former Marine, Special Forces, a Navy Seal, Army, Air Force, Navy Veteran, a CIA type. I want a guy watching over me .......NOT some woman that KICKS STARTS her vibrator!!

Crist A No-Show On CNN ~ Bye Bye Charlie Get Lost!



Charlie Crist pooltime hahahhaa.......Buy you a daquiri? Strawberry, or Razzleberry?

Crist a no-show on CNN


Politico


Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, the newly minted independent candidate for the Senate, canceled a sit-down interview that was to have aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Host Candy Crowley said on the program that “we had requested them from both Governor Crist and Marco Rubio. After initially agreeing to a sit- down interview, Crist backed out.” She did air an interview with Rubio.

Crist lost much of his campaign staff last week after dropping out of the Republican primary, where he was trailing Rubio by double digits, to run as an independent. His campaign did not return a request for comment about the late cancellation.

In an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Crist said that he would caucus with “the people” if elected.

"For Marco, this was yet another opportunity to discuss the issues and ideas that have been the centerpiece of his campaign since it was launched a year ago,” Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos said. “ In Charlie Crist, all we've seen this past week are more examples of his whatever-it-takes-to-win approach to climbing the political ladder."


In a pre-taped interview from earlier in the week that was to have aired on CNN Sunday along with the canceled interview, Crist said that “all people will do is, all they’re going to do is attack each other all day long. People like this, they go home and watch cable television, watch broadcast television, and they see those kinds of arguments and it breaks their hearts.”

LOL, I wonder why he stiffed CNN but had an interview with NBC?

It would be interesting to see how much staff he lost. I guess he will be getting Democrat volunteers/staff now. Crist - An egomaniac, a fool, and a self-centered opportunist. And a radioactive one. His staff better be gone - they will be blackballed from any work for any Republicans in the future.

Car Bomb Found in Times Square





Heroic cops stopped a car bomb from blowing up in the heart of Times Square Saturday night.


NY Daily News


Three heroic cops and a quick-thinking street vendor stopped a madman from detonating a car bomb in the heart of Times Square Saturday night, law enforcement officials told the Daily News.

The T-shirt vendor - a Vietnam vet - told Officer Wayne Rhatigan there was smoke coming from a Nissan SUV on the southwest corner of 45th St. and Broadway about 7 p.m., sources said.

Rhatigan approached the car, saw the smoke, and sprang into action.

"I did a lap around the vehicle. The inside was smoking," Rhatigan told the Daily News Saturday night. "I smelled gunpowder and knew it might blow. I thought it might blow any second."

He grabbed two rookie female cops patrolling the area. Together, they pushed hundreds of people away from the scene as they called for backup, he said.

The Fire Department and bomb squad rushed to the scene.

What they found was stunning: a running SUV packed with three propane tanks, two red 5-gallon plastic jugs of gasoline, a clock, electrical components and a canister of gunpowder, police sources said.

"We are very lucky," Mayor Bloomberg said at an early morning press conference at the scene, still wearing a tuxedo and red bow tie. "Thanks to alert New Yorkers and professional police officers we avoided what could have been a very deadly event."

The two rookie cops reported seeing a man running away from the scene as they approached the car.

Police spokesman Paul Browne said cops were investigating a report that someone was seen running from the vehicle at some point and are reviewing security videotapes.

"It looks as if the perp was trying to light it up, and was interrupted by the cops, panicked and took off," a law enforcement source said.
"It looked like someone tried to detonate it and we got to it in time," a police source said. "This is a big deal. It has the makings of a real car bomb."

Cops began evacuating the Crossroads of the World as the bomb squad used a robot to get inside the car.

Tourists rushed out of the Marriott Marquis hotel and several Broadway shows.

Seven big shows went dark, including "Billy Elliot" and "The Lion King," which is located directly behind the would-be car bomb.

The curtain at "God of Carnage" and "Red" went up a half hour later than usual, but those shows were not canceled, said spokesman Adrian Bryan-Brown. Restaurants like Sardi's and TGI Friday's were also evacuated, witnesses said.

Police said the blue Pathfinder appeared to be stolen and had Connecticut license plates belonging to another car.

The man seen fumbling with the device vanished into the crowd and had not been found as of early this morning.


The Homeland Security Department was aware of the situation, but the NYPD was the lead agency involved in the investigation, sources said.


"The matter is being taken seriously," said Paul Bresson, head of the FBI's public affairs office at bureau headquarters in Washington.

Car Bomb Found in Times Square

Thousands of tourists, theatergoers cleared from Crossroads of the World


NBC New York

Updated 3:25 AM EDT, Sun, May 2, 2010

The NYPD has removed an improvised car bomb from a sports utility vehicle parked in Times Square, including propane and gasoline tanks, consumer-grade fireworks and an "amateurish" wiring device which included a clock and wires.

Thousands of tourist and theatergoers were cleared away in response as police cordoned off a large portion of the Crossroads of the Road on a warm and crowded night.

"We avoided what we could have been a very deadly event," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "It certainly could have exploded and had a pretty big fire and a decent amount of explosive impact."

An alert T-shirt vendor spotted the suspicious vehicle, which had white smoke billowing from it and smelled of gunpowder, and notified a member of the NYPD mounted patrol at about 6:30 this evening, Bloomberg said at a press conference shortly after 2:15 am.

An NYPD robot arm broke windows of the dark green Nissan Pathfinder to check for explosive materials while heavily armed police and emergency vehicles shut down Times Square, teeming with taxis and theatergoers.

"We have no idea who did this and why," said a tuxedo-clad Bloomberg who rushed to scene, along with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, from Washington DC where they attended the annual Washington Correspondents Dinner.
Kelly says the car contained three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components. He says a black metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered. The mayor said authorities were reviewing security videotapes.

Sources said the license plate on the Pathfinder traces back to a Ford, not a Nissan. The mayor said the police contacted the person who last legally had the Connecticut license plates, That person said the Connecticut plates were last legally used in car that was junked, Bloomberg said.

The car was suspicious in more ways than one: It was not parked right at the curb, the flashers were going and there was a "light smoking haze" in the passenger compartment.

President Barack Obama has been briefed on the situation. In a statement, the administration said that the president, who also attended an annual dinner for White House news correspondents Saturday night, praised the quick response by the New York Police Department.

Obama has also directed his homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, to advise New York officials that the federal government is prepared to provide support.

The Joint Terrorism Task Force was on the scene as an ever widening radius of blocks was closed as a precaution. Police evacuated several residential and commercial buildings and cleared several streets of thousands of tourists milling around on a warm Saturday night.

Shelly Carlisle, of Portland, Ore., said police crowded into her Broadway theater after the curtain closed on "Next to Normal," a show on the same block where the SUV was found.

"At the end of the show, the police came in. We were told we had to leave," Carlisle said. "They said there was a bomb scare."

In December, a van without license plates parked in Times Square led police to block off part of the area for about two hours. A police robot examined the vehicle. Clothes, racks and scarves were found inside.

In March 2008, a hooded bicyclist hurled an explosive device at a military recruiting center in the heart of Times Square, producing a flash, smoke and full-scale emergency response. No suspect was ever identified.

In December, police evacuated thousands of holiday tourists from Times Square after finding a white van that had been parked there for days without license plates and blacked-out windows. No bombs were found, and police later said they overlooked the van because it contained a parking placard for a nonprofit police group.

Above The Law Mentality Obama Continues To Defy Senate Subpoena For Fort Hood Documents



Administration continues to defy Senate subpoena for Fort Hood documents

The Washington Post

The Obama administration said Tuesday that it will provide more information to Congress about the Fort Hood shootings but continued to defy a subpoena request for witness statements and other documents.

After days of negotiations, the Defense and Justice departments informed a Senate committee that they will not comply with congressional subpoenas to share investigative records related to the Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., which killed 13 people. The agencies said divulging the material could jeopardize their prosecution of Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the alleged gunman.

The Pentagon said, however, that it will give the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs access to Hasan's personnel file, as well as part of an Army report that scrutinized why superiors did not intervene in Hasan's career as an Army psychiatrist, despite signs of his religious radicalization and shortcomings as a soldier.

Leslie Phillips, a committee spokeswoman, said the refusal to hand over all the material was "an affront" to Congress's duty "to conduct independent oversight of the executive branch."

Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said the agency has tried to cooperate as much as possible.

The Obama regime loves to protect Islamofascist terrorists and illegal aliens from American justice. It is amazing what this punk thinks he can get away with.

We have GOT to control of the House. It's just step one. We have so much to do. I think often of the sniper, sitting there in the desert, in the night, in the cold. Steady. And I do not mean shooting politicians. Just picking them off at the ballot box, one by one, never giving up, and never again letting them do what they have done.

It’s obvious they are hiding something and I think we all know what it is. They knew about this guy, knew he was a danger, yet were too PC to deal with it until he took the lives of our men in uniform.

Qatari Diplomat Who Sparked Terrorist Alert Will Not Be Charged


Qatari diplomat who sparked terrorist alert will not be charged

Telegraph co.uk.

A Qatari diplomat who sparked a terror alert in the US after he was challenged for apparently smoking a cigarette in the lavatory on a US flight and joking that he was trying to light his shoes will not be charged.

Air marshals on board United Flight 663 wrestled the 27-year-old Qatari to the floor and two F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to intercept the plane. President Barack Obama was alerted as the fighters escorted the aeroplane, which was carrying 157 passengers and six crew members, to the ground in Denver, where it was surrounded by security services.

Mohamed al-Madadi, the third secretary and vice-consul of the Qatari embassy in Washington, was not charged with any offence, but will be sent home to Qatar, according to a senior US State Department official. Under international protocol, diplomats in foreign country enjoy broad imnmunity from prosecution.

"We fully expect this will be resolved very quickly," State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said, adding that the US government was satisfied that the Qatari government is taking the matter seriously.

Officials said the man had gone to the lavatory to smoke. When questioned about smoke emerging from the toilets, he reportedly claimed he had diplomatic immunity and made sarcastic comments that he intended to set fire to his shoe.

The joke was an apparent reference to the 2001 “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, a British citizen who attempted to blow up a transatlantic jet with explosives hidden in his footwear.

A Qatari diplomat who caused a bomb scare after sneaking a smoke in an airplane bathroom was traveling for a consular visit to see an imprisoned al-Qaida agent. A State Department official and another person close to the matter say Mohammed Al-Madadi was going to meet Ali Al-Marri for an official visit. Consular officials frequently visit foreigners held in the United States to make sure they are being treated well.






Qatari ambassador to the United States Ali Bin Fahad Al-Hajri:

"We respect the necessity of special security precautions involving air travel, but this diplomat was traveling to Denver on official business on my instructions, and he was certainly not engaged in any threatening activity. The facts will reveal that this was a mistake, and we urge all concerned parties to avoid reckless judgments or speculation.”

Eric Holder: Detainees’ Lawyers Are “Patriots”



Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder called far left lawyers who represented terrorist killers at Gitmo “patriots.”


FOX News


Two weeks after a conservative group disparaged Justice Department lawyers who previously represented terror suspects, Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday weighed in for the first time, calling such lawyers “patriots.”

“Those who reaffirm our nation’s most essential and enduring values do not deserve to have their own values questioned,” Holder told a group of lawyers who offer “pro bono,” or voluntary, legal services. “Let me be clear about this: Lawyers who provide counsel for the unpopular are, and should be treated as what they are: patriots.”

The crowd, gathered to honor Holder with an award from the Washington-based Pro Bono Institute, erupted in applause.

For months the Justice Department had been refusing to identify seven politically-appointed attorneys who previously represented or advocated for terror suspects.

No respect is deserved for those that represent the enemies of America that seek to destroy our country. Terrorists, the very scum with dreams of cutting off the heads of our children and murdering millions of American citizens deserve no quarter.

Eric Holder: Terrorists and Osama Bin Laden Have Same Rights As Charles Manson








Politico


Attorney General Eric Holder told a congressional panel Tuesday that the question of reading Osama bin Laden his Miranda rights is absurd – because he won’t be brought in alive.

“Let’s deal with reality,” Holder said. “You’re talking about a hypothetical that will never occur. We will be reading Miranda rights to the corpse of Obama bin Laden. He will never appear in an American courtroom. That’s the reality….He will be killed by us or he will be killed by his own people, so he’s not captured by us. We know that.”

Holder’s comments came during a hearing where Holder and a Republican congressman debated whether bin Laden and notorious killer Charles Manson deserved the same legal rights.

During a House appropriations subcommittee hearing, Holder invoked Manson to counter Republican arguments that the administration wanted to stage civilian trials that would give alleged 9/11 plotters the same Constitutional rights afforded to the average American.

“These defendants, many of whom are charged with murder, would be treated just like any other murder defendants,” Holder said with evident exasperation. “The comparison….the question is: Are they being treated the way any other murderer would be? They have the same rights Charles Manson would have.”

While Holder thought the Manson comparison would make Americans feel more comfortable with the idea of civilian trials for terrorism suspects, Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) disagreed and sensed an opening.

“Osama bin Laden, in your opinion, has the same rights as Charles Manson?” a dubious Culberson asked.

“That’s incredible,” Culberson replied. “The disconnect between this administration and your mind-set is so completely opposite that of where the vast majority of the American people are,” he said, arguing that disagreement with the Obama administration’s terrorism prosecution policy drove the recent victory of Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.).

Keep America Safe Ad Demanding AG Eric Holder Reveal the Identity of "The Al-Qaeda Seven"




This is the new hard-hitting ad by Keep America Safe, which urges Americans to call Attorney General Eric Holder's office and demand that he reveal the identity of what they call, "the Al-Qaeda Seven."

These are seven of the nine Justice Department employees hired by Holder who have represented terrorists in the past. Two of the nine have been revealed. But for some reason, Holder refuses to reveal who the other seven are.

The ad opens with an interesting clip of Holder in 2008 - before Obama was elected - saying that the time was drawing close when "an America run by progressives is about to happen. We are going to be looking for people who share our values."

Eric Holder phone number 202-514-2000

Rep. Pete King (R, NY) Talks About Holder's Al Qaeda Nine


.

Wild Thing's comment........

Rep. King is right on. Holder and all his liberal commie defenders are traitors to this country. ... It breeds more hate and strengthens the recruiting arms of Al Qaeda.

DOJ: Department of Jihad! The Justice Department employs nine lawyers previously involved in the defense of terrorist detainees. This is a colossal conflict of interest. Just whose side are they on?

From the Mark Levin Show: We have a serious problem with our Justice system. Lawyers from the Justice Department are being recommended by Attorney General Holder and they don’t have America’s best interest in mind. If they did, why would they be weakening us in terms of national security and defense? They are setting policy on how we should fight and try terrorists. Mark also talks about how the ACLU is running the Department of Justice and hurting our society.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." ~ President Ronald Reagan

Sept. 11 Hijackers' Florida Apartment Demolished


House where Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi lived just before they piloted the two hijacked planes that crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11.




Sept. 11 Hijackers' Florida Apartment Demolished


FOX News


An abandoned apartment building in Hollywood, Florida where two of the September 11 hijackers lived for several months before the attack was demolished Friday.

A crowd gathered to watch the building in Jackson Street be torn down, Fox reported.

"It's almost like it was a monster's lair and I don't think anybody would want to live in a place like that," demolition expert Darren Fradin said.
"We're happy to take this thing down," he said. "We understand there used to be some monsters that lived in this place."

Not long after hijackers flew two planes into New York City's World Trade center towers in 2001, police descended on the Florida property gathering evidence.

Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi lived there from May to June 2001 before their suicide mission, Fox reported.

The property developer intends to turn the area into a parking lot and a community pool.


Comments from neighbors from South Florida.com

"It's good to see it go. Get rid of the karma," said neighbor Phil Cook.

Clad in a Sept. 11 memorial shirt, Nancy Tappen appeared with a walker and a camera to snap a shot of Apartment 3A, the second-floor unit where the terrorists lived. "It's a part of history, right?" she said. "A bad part."

Virginia Bourgeois, from a block away, stood in the sun and contemplated the crumpled building Atta once called home.

"To think he was right there — my God," she said. "But he's gone and it's gone."

Noreen Buchbinder, owner of a nearby pizzeria, lauded the building's demise. "It's a way of getting back," she said.

Fort Hood Terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan Could Be Moved To Local Jail



Accused Fort Hood Gunman Could Be Moved To Local Jail

KWTX.com


BELTON


Bell County Sheriff Dan Smith confirmed Friday that his office and Fort Hood officials have been talking for several weeks about transferring accused Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan from a San Antonio military hospital to the Bell County Jail.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of murder in the shooting rampage on Nov. 5, 2009 at the post’s Soldier Readiness Center that left 13 dead and 29 injured.

He was left paralyzed in an exchange of gunfire with two civilian police officers who are credited with ending the massacre.

For 15 years, the Bell County Jail has had a contract with Fort Hood for housing military prisoners charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

“Because of this existing contractual relationship,” Smith said, “Fort Hood has asked me to consider housing Hasan in our jail.”

Hasan’s attorney John Galligan confirmed that the Army wants to move Hasan, but said he would rather his client be transferred either to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center or to a secure location on post.

Hasan is facing an Article 32 Hearing, the military equivalent of a civilian grand jury review, which will determine whether he stands trial for the deadly shooting

Update: Five Muslim Soldiers Questioned at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

Update: Five Muslim Soldiers Questioned at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

CBN


CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were questioned just before Christmas. It is unclear whether the men are still in custody. The five were part of the Arabic Translation program at the base.

Patrick Jones, the Deputy Public Affairs Officer for Fort Jackson, confirmed for CBN News Thursday afternoon that an investigation was ongoing.

Prior to this posting, CBN News learned that these details were also confirmed by a government official with knowledge of the investigation.

The men are suspected of trying to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson.

A source with intimate knowledge of the investigation, which is ongoing, told CBN News investigators suspect the "Fort Jackson Five" may have been in contact with the group of five Washington, D.C., area Muslims that traveled to Pakistan to wage jihad against U.S. troops in December. That group was arrested by Pakistani authorities, also just before Christmas.

Coming as it does on the heels of November's Fort Hood jihadist massacre, this news could have major implications.


.


And this anoither update:


Fort Jackson: The Latest

CBN

Terrorism expert Patrick Poole, an anti-terrorism consultant for the U.S. military and law enforcement, told CBN News that "if this incident had become public in late December while the military was still working on the Ft. Hood report it would have no doubt been catastrophic. What exactly happened at Ft. Jackson and why is this only coming out now? That's a question that Congress should be asking. "

"As noted in the Washington Times last month," Poole continued. "My colleagues and I have been warning of jihadist threats - both external and internal - for several years. The Pentagon has entirely ignored us and the Ft. Hood report released last month is evidence of the culture of willful blindness that wants to pretend this threat doesn't exist. Regardless of how the Ft. Jackson incident is resolved, it demonstrates that this threat is not going away."

I spoke today to Army spokesman Christopher Garver, who said the five men are not currently in custody. He was unclear whether the men who were questioned were U.S.citizens. And that brings us to another interesting wrinkle to this story.

According to my colleague, CBN Military Correspondent Chuck Holton, the 09 Lima program, which these men are a part of:


...is specifically geared towards non-US citizens who bring to the table one very in-demand skill - the ability to speak fluent Arabic, Dari, Pashto, or some other needed language. But these recruits also have a handicap - their grasp of the English language is not sufficient to allow them to make it through basic training. So the 09 Lima program puts them through a sort of pre-basic basic, where they learn American culture, Army culture and work on their English language skills. Once they finish the course, they are then able to enter normal basic training. It' is a very small program, with something less than forty recruits in each class.

Holton continues:

Here's the interesting part. According to Lt. Col. Frank Demith, these recruits are offered an "expedited citizenship program, once they serve one day of honorable active duty."

Military service has always been a way for non-citizen US residents to obtain citizenship, and thousands have performed honorably in service to our country before it actually became their country.

Though the Army must certainly have a thorough vetting process in place to try and avoid a scenario like that described by Erick Stakelbeck's recent blog, in the case of the 09 Lima program, the ability to receive "expedited American citizenship" must present a tempting opportunity for jihadi extremists with ulterior motives.

This is relevant not only because of the Fort Hood case, but because in the last month, there was an incident (see here) of an interpreter in Afghanistan murdering U.S. troops

Stay tuned to this blog for more details as they unfold.

Wild Thing's comment.........

This is an update of yesterday's story and they FINALLY say Muslims.

What is most telling about this is that the Obama admin will be far more outraged that this story hit the media than they will be over the fact that there was an attempted poisoning of our military personel.


"Attempted to poison" implies that they had the poison in hand and made some attempt to use it. But the authorities sure are dancing around this one, and they've had two months already to investigate.


When Obama says “I am glad to see fallen soldiers in the audience” and “Corpse-man” it rings with an entirely new meaning in his 57 (Islamic) states. Freudian slips which he’s stupidly thinks we cannot see through to his loathing of US soldiers.

Fox News has learned that the Army is investigating allegations that five individuals attempted to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army's Criminal Investigation Division, told Fox's Catherine Herridge that these are still just allegations, and so far "there is no credible information to support them". Nevertheless, an investigation is ongoing Grey said.

Two sources at Fort Jackson revealed that the five accused individuals were detained in December, and all were enrolled in an Arabic translation training program, referred to in the Army as "Lima 09". "Each of them uses Arabic as his first language", one source told Fox.

Watch Out ....Muslim Women Could Be Booby Trapped



New weapon: To avoid detection by airport body scanners (above), Al Qaeda are said to be planning to surgically insert explosives into suicide bombers' bodies


Women have explosive breast implants

Authorities alarmed by possibility of surgically placed explosives

wnd

and

Daily Mail.co.uk

LONDON


Agents for Britain's MI5 intelligence service have discovered that Muslim doctors trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals have returned to their own countries to fit surgical implants filled with explosives.

Until now, terrorists have attacked airlines, Underground trains and buses by secreting bombs in bags, shoes or underwear to avoid detection.

But an operation by MI5 has uncovered evidence that Al Qaeda is planning a new stage in its terror campaign by inserting ‘surgical bombs’ inside people for the first time.

Security services believe the move has been prompted by the recent introduction at airports of body scanners, which are designed to catch terrorists before they board flights.

It is understood MI5 became aware of the threat after observing increasingly vocal internet ‘chatter’ on Arab websites this year.

Experts said the explosive PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate) would be placed in a plastic sachet inside the bomber’s body before the wound was stitched up like a normal operation incision and allowed to heal.

A shaped charge of 8oz of PETN can penetrate five inches of armour and would easily blow a large hole in an airliner.

Security sources said the explosives would be detonated by the bomber using a hypodermic syringe to inject TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide) through their skin into the explosives sachet.


Companies such as Smiths Detection International UK, which is based in Watford, Hertfordshire, manufacture a range of luggage and body scanners designed to identify chemicals, explosives and drugs at airports and other passenger terminals around the world.

These include high-specification X-ray equipment that could identify body bombs.

But one source with expertise in the field said: ‘They can make as many pieces of security equipment as they like but there is no one magic answer that can spot every single potential terrorist passing through.’
Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaida are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery. The lethal explosives – usually PETN (pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate) – are inserted during the operation inside the plastic shapes. The breast is then sewn up.

Similar surgery has been performed on male suicide bombers. In their cases, the explosives are inserted in the appendix area or in a buttock.

The discovery of these methods was made after the London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner on Christmas Day with explosives he had stuffed inside his underpants.




Wild Thing's comment........

These Muslims are loathsome, vile, bitter and twisted freaks.

And how in the heck would the inspectors detect bomb making or blow up checmicals in boobs or butts?

Not only that but this sure opens a lot of doors for jokes and political cartoons as well. Good grief lol these people are insane. They want to blow us all up so badly. I guess it does not matter where the bomb is as long as these people get their wish to die while taking out innocent lives.

And the stupid TSA people we have and the huge mistakes they have been making, this will only add to it. They will be busy with granny and too shy to well you know check out the " sweet" Muslim girl flying in from a Muslim country.

John Brennan Slams Critics Over Handling of the Christmas Day Bomber



" I Don't Know Where The Terrorism Chief Is Coming From At All? " ~ Rudy Giuliani



John Brennan Slams Critics Over Handling of the Christmas Day Bomber

USA Today

Obama's top counterterrorism adviser responded to critics of the administration's policies and defended its handling of the failed Christmas day bomber.

Echoing comments he also made on "Meet The Press" this past Sunday, John Brennan, the assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for homeland security, said that most critics to the president were "misrepresenting the facts to score political points, instead of coming together to keep us safe."
"Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda. Terrorists are not 100-feet tall," Brennan said.
Brennan said that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was "thoroughly interrogated and provided important information," and that senior officials from the White House, the intelligence community and the military also supported the decision to charge him in criminal court.
Brennan also defended the decision to read Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights, something that Republicans have harshly criticized. Brennan said the decision to do so was "a long-standing FBI policy that was reaffirmed under Michael Mukasey, President Bush's attorney general."
He added that the most important information was actually obtained from Abdulmutallab after he was read the rights.
"The critics who want the FBI to ignore this long-established practice also ignore the lessons we have learned in waging this war: Terrorists such as Jose Padilla and Saleh al-Mari did not cooperate when transferred to military custody, which can harden one's determination to resist cooperation."
Brennan said it was "naïve" to think Abdulmutallab would have been more prone to dispel valuable information if he was transferred to military custody.
"There is little difference between military and civilian custody, other than an interrogator with a uniform. The suspect gets access to a lawyer, and interrogation rules are nearly identical," he said.
"The notion that America's counterterrorism professionals and America's system of justice are unable to handle these murderous miscreants is absurd," Brennan added.
Brennan also charged that critics were being hypocritical, saying that "would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid was read his Miranda rights five minutes after being taken off a plane he tried to blow up. The same people who criticize the president today were silent back then."
Brennan also sought to highlight successful actions taken by the administration, saying their efforts have "disrupted dozens of terrorist plots," and that they have been responsible for "killing and capturing hundreds of hard-core terrorists."
"We need no lectures about the fact that this nation is at war," he added.

GOP leaders rebut Brennan’s claims about Christmas bomber

The Hill

By Silla Brush

02/07/10

Congressional Republicans lashed out at White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan, who said Sunday that the lawmakers were told the Christmas Day terrorist attacker was taken into FBI custody.

Brennan said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) and Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) were all briefed on Christmas Day and that they raised no objections.

“They knew that in FBI custody there is a process that you follow. None of those individuals raised any concerns with me at this point,” Brennan said. “They were very appreciative of the information.”

The four Republicans immediately took umbrage at Brennan’s comments, saying they were not told of any decision to read Miranda rights to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the attacker.

“Brennan never told me any of plans to Mirandize the Christmas Day bomber — if he had I would told him the administration was making a mistake,” Bond said.

Spokesmen for McConnell and Boehner described brief or “courtesy” calls on Christmas Day that did not amount to a full briefing.

“During a brief call from the White House, McConnell was given a heads up that Abdulmutallab was in custody, but little else. He wasn’t told of the decision to Mirandize Abdulmutallab,” said Don Stewart, McConnell’s spokesman.

Kevin Smith, spokesman for Boehner, said the congressman received a short, unclassified, non-secure call on his cell phone in which he was not told that Abdulmutallab was read Miranda rights.

This administration, and this administration alone, made the dangerous decision to read Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights and treat him as a common criminal, not a terrorist, and it did so without even consulting our intelligence chiefs,” Smith said.
“I don’t think Brennan is lying,” Hoekstra said. “I think what he is saying is that he gave us some info and based on that kind of info we should have figured out something else. That’s an unfair characterization.”
He said the idea that he would know how the government would treat the attacker legally based on what Brennan said is “ludicrous.”
“That assumption is crazy,” Hoekstra said.
Hoekstra said the call was in the evening on Christmas Day on a nonsecure line. He said they didn’t discuss what strategy would be used or how the government would treat him legally.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Brennan was the man who ran the company that breached candidate’s passport files during the election. The media assumed McCain or Clinton was behind it and then conveniently forgot about it when Obama hired him.

There is no reason to respect this man Brennan and he just keeps proving that.

Senator DeMint, "If we had treated this Christmas Day bomber as a terrorist, he would have immediately been interrogated military-style, rather than given the rights of an American and lawyers. We probably lost valuable information."....and this by DeMint ......"There's no question that the president has downplayed the risk of terror since taking office," DeMint said, adding that "we need to get the politics out" of fighting terrorism."

Western Pennsylvania Could Host 9/11 Terror Trial



Khalid Sheikh Mohammed


Western Pennsylvania could host 9/11 terror trial

By Salena Zito and Brian Bowling

Pittsburgh Live.....TRIBUNE-REVIEW


Politicians began lining up Friday against a potential trial of 9/11 terror suspects in Western Pennsylvania, where one of the hijacked airliners crashed.

"Although we are not dead set against it, we would have to hear two things," Gov. Ed Rendell said after New York's top police official said he thinks the trial won't take place there. "First, why it would be safer for Western Pennsylvania than for New York City; and second, what portion of the cost for security and other things would the federal government absorb?"

The Obama administration is drafting plans to move out of Manhattan the trials of professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged accomplices, two administration officials said.

"As Pennsylvania directly experienced part of the attack on September 11th, we are acutely interested in seeing the perpetrators brought to justice," said Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato. "However, the last thing Pennsylvania needs is a terrorist trial that raises security concerns and places even more of a burden on our taxpayers."

The Sixth Amendment dictates that civilian trials for the suspects must be held in one of the areas where planes crashed Sept. 11, 2001, according to Bruce Antkowiak, a law professor at Duquesne University. That leaves the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of Virginia -- the location of the Pentagon -- or the Western District of Pennsylvania, which includes Somerset County, where United Flight 93 crashed.

"The presumption is the trial should take place in the district that the crime was committed," Antkowiak said.
Mary Beth Buchanan, the former U.S. attorney for Western Pennsylvania, said holding the trial in this district would be expensive and drain resources.
"It's impossible to predict how long this trial might take," she said, noting the complicated charges. It would tie up U.S. marshals who protect courtrooms, she said.
"It would be outrageous to put the financial burden of these trials on the citizens of Western Pennsylvania," Buchanan said.
Sens. Bob Casey Jr. and Arlen Specter said they had no information the trial would move to Pennsylvania, but they oppose the idea and told the Obama administration.
"Mayor Bloomberg has given good reasons why the trial should not be held in New York City, and that same reasoning would apply for Pennsylvania as well," said Specter, D-Philadelphia.
Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl would have similar concerns, his spokeswoman said.
"The same ones outlined by Mayor Mike Bloomberg -- that the trial could put our citizens in danger, as well as the exorbitant costs associated with the trial, something that we could not withstand," spokeswoman Joanna Doven said.
Hosting such a high-profile trial poses a slew of security challenges, from international terrorist organizations seeking to disrupt it to domestic hate groups, said Danny Defenbaugh, a security consultant and 33-year veteran of the FBI. The threats remain the same no matter where the trial takes place, he said.
"An example that is much less magnified is when we moved the Oklahoma City bombing trial from Oklahoma City to Denver," Defenbaugh said. "We still had the same types of hate groups (to guard against). It didn't matter to them whether we were in Oklahoma City or St. Louis, Mo."

Moving the trial would be a setback for President Obama. His administration spent weeks defending its handling of terror threats after the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner, which reignited the debate about whether terror suspects should face civilian or military justice.

Obama long has supported trying some terrorists in federal, civilian court, while Republicans argue terrorists should be tried in military tribunals where other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be judged.

White House Holds Out Hope For 9/11 Trial In New York




White House holds out hope for 9/11 trial in New York

AFP

WASHINGTON


White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday that the accused author of the 9/11 attacks would "meet his maker" after being convicted, and said the US administration still hopes the trial can be held on American soil.

Gibbs said the White House is still hoping to bring Sheikh Muhammed and other alleged plotters of the September 11 attacks to trial in New York, despite recent reservations expressed by officials there.

"We are talking with the authorities in New York," he said.
"We understand their logistical concerns and their security concerns that are involved. We have been discussing that with them."

The Obama administration had hoped to prosecute the self-described mastermind of the 2001 attacks, and his four co-defendants, in a federal court in lower Manhattan, not far from site of the World Trade Center attack that destroyed the Twin Towers and left some 3,000 people dead.

But New York City's Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who initially welcomed the White House plan, abruptly reversed his stance last week, saying he would prefer a different location because of the high cost of holding the trial.
He was joined by other New York elected officials, including Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, who said last week he was pressing the White House "to find suitable alternatives."
Gibbs said Sunday that the administration was hoping to get them to reconsider.
"As you know, they were originally supportive of this," he told CNN's "State of the Union" program.
"We want to see this man tried and brought to justice in the place in which the crime was committed," Gibbs said.

Top Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee publicly scolded Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for failing to show up at a Wednesday hearing where the committee examined the attempted Christmas Day suicide bombing of Northwest Flight 253. One Democrat on the committee said he wanted to know “where the hell” Napolitano was.

That evening, Napolitiano did prominently show up at the Capitol to attend President Barack Obama's State of the Union address. But earlier in the day, she dispatched Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Jane Holl Lute to testify on her behalf in the Homeland Security Committee on what went wrong in the homeland-security process that allowed would-be suicide-bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board a plane bound from Amsterdam to the Detroit.

The committee has primary oversight over Napolitano’s department, and top Democrats on the panel made it clear they were angry that she failed to show up for such an important hearing.

Appearing on CNN two days after the attempted Christmas Day suicide bombing, Napolitano had said: “And one thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked.” Republican sources on the committee said they believe Napolitano did not show up today because she did not want to explain why she said those words.

Democrats openly expressed their dismay with Napolitano as the hearing proceeded. Rep. Chris Carney (D.-Pa.), chairman of the Subcommittee on Management, Investigations and Oversight, said during his question period: “I am very dismayed that the Secretary herself isn’t here. I mean it’s probably fair to ask: “Where the Hell is Secretary Napolitano?”


Rep. Jane Harman (D.-Calif.), chairman of the Subcommittee on Intelligence, said: "I would like to welcome our witnesses but comment on the absence of Secretary Napolitano. This is the committee with primary jurisdiction over the Department of Homeland Security. She is the secretary of Homeland Security. She is in Washington, D.C. She was invited to testify at this very important hearing, and she should have been here. … I am very personally disappointed that she isn’t here.”


Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D.-Miss.) rebuked Napolitano for a lack of courtesy in dealing with the committee. Thompson said during the hearing that he had spoken with Napolitano just two days before and that there had been no discussion of her not attending. He did not want his committee to be “misled,” he said, added that the committee had first been told that Napolitano could not attend because she would be out of the country, then discovered that she was in fact in Washington, D.C. but would not attend anyway.

“I don’t want the committee to be misled,” said Thompson. “Now, I talked with the secretary two days ago. We did not talk about her non-attendance or attendance at this hearing. Staff did communicate, based on a directive that we received that the secretary would not be here, and we worked on Assistant Secretary Lute’s presence. That changed, and, at a minimum, based on that change, somebody could have communicated back to the committee one way or the other that we told that you weren’t going to be here, we are here now, but we still can’t come because of some other things. That is the courtesy, I think, the committee still deserves. It does not require comment.”

Obama Seeks $200M To Help Cities Host 9/11 Trials




Obama seeks $200M to help cities host 9/11 trials


The Obama administration is proposing a $200 million fund to help pay for security costs in cities hosting the trials of accused terrorists such as Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (HAH'-leed shayk moh-HAH'-med).


A congressional aide familiar with the plan says the money will be included in the president's budget being release Monday. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the spending blueprint hasn't been released.

The administration said late last year the trials would take place in federal court in lower Manhattan, near where the World Trade Center once stood. But there's growing opposition from the city, and the White House is considering moving the trial elsewhere.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has put the cost of tighter security at $216 million just for the first year after Mohammed and the others were to arrive from Guantanamo Bay.




Wild Thing's comment......

The word “CITIES” jumped out at me. WTH is THAT about. Station one here, one there, one somewhere else and you've just set up a brilliant scheme to attack major US "CITIES" from several vantage points. He's hated the US from day one and his plan is to destroy us as quickly as possible for his 4 years or his usurp-ness is up.

"The Obama administration is proposing a $200 million fund to help pay for security costs in cities hosting"

More people to kill in "cities". This dictator cannot be more obvious!

This of the contrast of the picture of Bush with bullhorn at Ground Zero.

Why spend 200 million when all that is needed is a length of rope.

And to think he still calls it the Bush economy... All he has done is look for more money to spend. It’s like monopoly money to him and his buddy Holder.

Taliban Rejects UN and Obama's Idea To Buy Them Off







Taliban rejects UN’s idea to buy them off in Afghanistan

UPI

KABUL, Afghanistan

The Afghan Taliban described an international effort to include moderate insurgents in the national reconstruction effort as misguided.

On Thursday London hosted an international conference on Afghanistan, bringing Afghan President Hamid Karzai together with world leaders, including U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The delegates at the conference announced a plan to bring low- and mid-level Taliban into the international effort to rebuild Afghanistan. The effort is modeled in part on the Sons of Iraq program, where Washington put insurgents on its payroll to fight the growing al-Qaida influence in Iraq. The Taliban discounted the effort, saying it was a trick by the international community, Pakistani newspaper The News International reports.

“They think the mujahedin will be enticed by money or by positions of power,” a Taliban statement read. ”Such thoughts are baseless and futile and have no truth.”
Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special envoy to the region, said there was no discussion of an amnesty for the Taliban, stressing the immediate aim was to end the fighting. The Taliban statement said that the only way to end the conflict in Afghanistan was through the departure of foreign military forces.





Wild Thing's comment........

This was 0bama's .......Cash for Terrorists program.

The barbarians told them to pound sand.

They want to 'win the hearts and minds' = and still haven't a clue what these people, their beliefs and culture is about. They don't 'hate us because we're rich" and have things they don't. They don't WANT material wealth and modernization. They want to live their barbaric ways - and kill infidels, bring back the Caliphate - and kill infidels, enslave women - and kill infidels, etc.

Of course, that doesn't concern Barack Hussein Obama = he's not on the infidel side of the fence.

This is why the new Rules of Engagement that have given the Taliban the advantage and resulted, since last spring, in more troops killed each month than since the first year of the war.

Obama is making kissy face with them at the expense - their very lives - of our troops.

Obama talked about paying off the Taliban last October ( 2009) - and no one paid attention. He said there were no more terrorist in Afghanistan - well, “no more than 100 in the whole county” (he calls only al Qaeda terrorists, not the Taliban, and he said so... and no one paid attention.

When he finally spoke about the ‘Christmas Bomber” and finally, for the first time,said “we are at War. .. with al Qaeda” and didn't mention Taliban - no one paid attention.

When Coakley, in a debate with Brown in Massachusetts, said about AFghanistan:”There are no more terrorists in Afghanistan! The terrorists are all gone!” - some people paid attention but put it down to her ignorance. They didn't connect it to obama’s theme, that the Taliban are not terrorists.

IRAQI mass murderer Chemical Ali Finally Executed Yesterday






IRAQI mass murderer Chemical Ali stands with a noose around his neck, as he was finally executed yesterday

IRAQI mass murderer Chemical Ali stands with a noose around his neck, as he was finally executed yesterday.

He had once boasted: "I will face death with open arms."

Ali - real name Ali Hasan al-Majid - had received FOUR separate death sentences.

The most recent was nine days ago, for the gassing in 1988 of a whole town of Kurdish people.

State-run TV released these stills of Saddam Hussein's henchman - who earned his nickname by slaughtering thousands with poison gas - seconds before he was hanged.

Moments before a hood was placed over his head, the 68-year-old had turned his eyes away from the cameras as he awaited justice for his monstrous crimes.

The King of Spades in America's Most Wanted deck of cards, his date with the executioner had been delayed by legal wrangling.

Yesterday, Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh confirmed: "The death sentence has been carried out."

“I congratulate the Iraqi people for this sentence,” said a lawmaker, Safia Suhail.


.


This is an excellent review of the life and atrocities of Ali Hasan al-Majid, also known as "Chemical Ali," who was executed today by hanging in Iraq. The report traces his brutality as Saddam Hussein's enforcer and the events that led to his eventual capture, trial, conviction and now - execution.

Iraq's 'Chemical Ali' To Hang For 1988 Gas Attack




Iraq's 'Chemical Ali' to hang for 1988 gas attack


The Sun News

By ADAM SCHRECK


Saddam Hussein's notorious cousin "Chemical Ali" was convicted Sunday and sentenced to hang for ordering the most infamous of his crimes, the attacks against the Kurdish town of Halabja that killed more than 5,000 people in clouds of poisonous gas.

The fourth death sentence against Ali Hassan al-Majid for crimes against humanity serves as a reminder that victims of Saddam's atrocities remain determined to seek justice, as some politicians stoke the lingering bitterness toward the old Sunni-led regime to cement the Shiite domination that supplanted it.

For the still suffering victims of the assault on Halabja more than two decades ago, the verdict brought a sense of closure to an event that came to symbolize the brutality of Saddam's rule.



.


Wild Thing's comment........

He’s been sentence to dangle several times before. Each time he’s given a date, the authorities file new charges and demand he stand trial yet again. Interesting way to escape death, demand to go to trial for new capital charges. They should have sent him to the depths of hell a long time ago.

Ali was not alone. There were dozens of others and every one of those geniocidal maniacs should hang.

The attack was well publicized with pictures of the kurds lying in heaps, children, women etc. It is the main argument against the idiots saying there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. They used gas to kill these kurds, if that isn’t a weapon of mass destruction I then I will eat my hat. The pictures were horrifying.

Obama (Gates) Says Taliban Must Take Legitimate Afghan Role



Afghan Taliban fighters show off their weapons


Gates Says Taliban Must Take Legitimate Afghan Role

NY Times

The United States recognizes that the Taliban are now part of the political fabric of Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said here on Friday, but the group must be prepared to play a legitimate role before it can reconcile with the Afghan government.
That means, Mr. Gates said, that the Taliban must participate in elections, not oppose education and not assassinate local officials.
“The question is whether the Taliban at some point in this process are ready to help build a 21st-century Afghanistan or whether they still just want to kill people,” Mr. Gates said.


The defense secretary made his remarks in an interview with Pakistani journalists at the home of the American ambassador to Pakistan, Anne W. Patterson. Mr. Gates was on the second day of a two-day visit to the country.

American officials have given qualified support to a proposed Afghan initiative to provide jobs, security and social benefits to Taliban followers who defect. Mr. Gates has said there could be a surge of such followers willing to be integrated into Afghan society, but he has voiced skepticism about whether the Taliban leadership is ready to work peacefully with the Afghan government.
“The question is, what do the Taliban want to make out of Afghanistan?” Mr. Gates told the journalists. “When they tried before, we saw what they wanted to make, and it was a desert, culturally and in every other way.”


.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Plant food is the only role for Taliban.

Everything Obama has done to date since he has been in the Oval Office has promoted "CHANGE" for America as we know it. Gates says nothing that his boss Obama has not preapproved.

If this were 1944 he’d be saying what...that the NAZI’s would need to be part of the new Germany?

Obama is a Muslim so this idea only fits into his desire to please the enemy and the heck with our troops, the wounded, the lives we have lost fighting the terrorists.

No KSM in NYC?



No KSM in NYC?


Michael Isikoff


Newsweek

Top administration officials are getting nervous that they may not be able to proceed with one of their most controversial national-security moves: trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other accused 9/11 conspirators in federal court in New York City.


Last November Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. portrayed the trial as a way to showcase the American justice system to the world—and to accelerate President Obama's stalled plans to shut down the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay. But because of shifting political winds in Congress, the trial is now "potentially in jeopardy," a senior official, who did not want to be named talking about a sensitive situation, tells NEWSWEEK.


The chief concern: that Republicans will renew attempts to strip funding for the trial and, in the aftermath of the bombing attempt aboard Northwest Flight 253, pick up enough support from moderate Democrats to prevail.


Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says he will force another vote on his amendment to stop the trial (which was defeated 54-45 in November) once Congress reconvenes.


"With Detroit and everything else going on, we've got a pretty good chance of winning this thing," says Graham, adding that he's privately heard from a number of Democrats, saying "they're with me."


GOP Rep. Frank Wolf says he plans a similar move in the House. "I'm afraid it's probably going to pass," says Democratic Rep. Jim Moran, who has strongly backed the administration on the issue.

Another big factor?

The price tag. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently sent a letter to the White House budget office seeking more than $216 million to provide security for the trial this year—and more than $200 million for each year after that. The figures have prompted some critics to say that, given the years a complex conspiracy case could take, the final cost could approach $1 billion. (The U.S. Marshals Service has briefed congressional staff members on a separate request for an extra $118 million for surveillance aircraft and armored vehicles to guard against terror attacks. White House budget officials, however, knocked the figure down to $40 million.) T

he Justice Department has yet to indict the suspects, nor has it given Congress the required 45-day notice that it plans to bring them to New York.


But spokesman Matthew Miller says the attorney general remains "committed to bringing to justice those allegedly responsible for the murder of nearly 3,000 people"—and "we can do it in trials that are safe, secure, and respected around the world."

If Holder's plans are thwarted, though, one top administration official, who also didn't want to be named talking about delicate issues, notes there is a Plan B—reviving the case against the alleged 9/11 conspirators before a military tribunal, just as the Bush administration tried to do.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters Calls Pentagon Report On The Fort Hood Shooting A "whitewash"




Lt. Col. Ralph Peters on "Fox & Friends" calling the Pentagon report on the Fort Hood shooting a "whitewash."

The Pentagon report blamed "several Army officers" for "failing to see the warning signs before the attack."

Peters called the report a "whitewash" that is "morally corrosive and dishonest." He said the officers should be disciplined but he said the report never asked the question "why didn't they stop him?" Peters said the answer is "the pervasive culture of political correctness in our military." He added that the officers "knew that if they tried to put Hasan out of the army, or stop his promotion...that their careers would suffer and that Hasan probably would have sailed straight through anyway."

Peters said, "the problem is a climate and a culture of political correctness that kills American service members."

Wild Thing's comment.......

They also mentioned that they will be more vigilante when it comes to “religious terrorism”. Has anyone seen a methodist jihadist, a Luthern jihadist, an orthodox jihadist? NO! WHY? because there aren’t any. These bastards have blood on thier hands, they have crippled and caused this event at Ft Hood because of the PC policies of this administration. THEY CAN’T , EVEN NOW AFTER THIS ATTACK ON OUR MILITARY BRING THEMSELVES TO SAY ISLAMIC!!! JIHADISTS!!!!

Check this out, it is the cover of the DOD's report on Ft. Hood.

It is a bunch of politically correct, whitewashed mumbo jumbo contained within "Protecting the Force: Lessons from Fort Hood". pdf file






The cover shows two arms clasped - the slightly darker skinned one (islamist?) on the top grasping the lighter skinned one (infidel?) on the bottom.

Islamic terrorist Hasan is referred to as a "gunman" and the "alleged perpetrator", the terror attack is referred to as an "incident" and their review "focused on the non-criminal aspects of the tragedy". By jove, our first responders were magnificent though!

What a joke.

86 pages and I could only find one mention of Islam and its derivatives (Islamic, Islamist and Muslim)- and it was in a freaking footnote!

What a disgrace to the memory of those killed and to the suffering of those who were wounded.

Wonderful Charles Krauthammer Says Obama Talks About Terrorists As If They Are "disgruntled postal worker"




Charles Krauthammer on Special Report where he said many Americans are uneasy about Obama's "demeanor and language" when talking about the threat we face in the "War on Terror." Krauthammer said Obama talks as if "he's giving a police report" when he talks about terrorism.
Krauthammer said Obama uses words like "suspect," "alleged attack," "isolated extremist," as if he's talking about a "disgruntled postal worker." It took Obama a "5th attempt" (following the attempted terror attack on Northwest Flight 253) before he actually used the language of us being in a "War on Terror."

Judge Rules Against CAIR




Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C


Judge rules against CAIR

D.C.-based Islamic group trying to quash book exposing terror ties


wnd


By Art Moore

A federal judge ruled against the Council on American-Islamic Relations today in its lawsuit against a father and son who carried out a six-month undercover investigation of the D.C.-based Muslim group, denying a request to conduct discovery – an examination of its opponent's witnesses, facts and documents – prior to hearing a motion to dismiss the case.

CAIR is suing P. David Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gaubatz, for allegedly stealing sensitive internal documents and making recordings of officials without consent. Chris Gaubatz, who posed as a Muslim in an internship with CAIR's national office in Washington, took some 12,000 pages of documents destined for a shredder in an attempt, he said, to expose the group's ties to Islamic jihad and terrorism. His father is a former Air Force special agent with extensive Middle East experience who researches the spread of radical Islam in the U.S. and its threat to national security.


In her ruling today, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., canceled a court hearing scheduled for Tuesday and gave CAIR until Jan. 15 to reply to the Gaubatz's motion to dismiss the case.

The motion filed last month by Gaubatz lawyer Daniel Horowitz asserts CAIR has no claim because it does not legally exist.

Horowitz explains that just two weeks after CAIR was named by the Justice Department in May 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist finance case in U.S. history, the organization changed its name to the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network.

"CAIR is not a valid entity and even if it were, the exposure of its inner workings is part of the price it pays for being a controversial group in a hotly contested arena," Horowitz declares in his reply to CAIR's lawsuit.

The FBI produced evidence at the trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation in 2008 that CAIR was established as a front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.


The material obtained by the Gaubatzes is featured in the book "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," published by WND Books, an affiliate of WorldNetDaily.com. The book asserts CAIR is acting as a front for a conspiracy of the Muslim Brotherhood – the parent of al-Qaida and Hamas – to infiltrate the U.S. and help pave the way for Saudi-style Islamic law to rule the nation.

Group: Internet posts indicate threat to Navy in Persian Gulf



Islamist Web sites soliciting info on ships

The Virginian-Pilot

A group that monitors Islamist Web sites has noted a disturbing trend - Internet posts from prominent contributors discussing attacks on U.S. warships.

Online threats against U.S. interests are not uncommon, and Internet propaganda is nothing new, said Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, which translated the posts. But he said the recent posts are more significant because they come in response to an official communique from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the terror group linked to the attempted bombing of a commercial American jetliner on Christmas. It urged followers to kill "Crusaders" on land, in the air and at sea.

The Navy also is reminding sailors of the importance of keeping secrets.

"Anyone who thinks our enemies don't monitor what our sailors, families and commands are doing via the Internet and social media had better open their eyes," Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Rick West said in an article posted Wednesday on the Navy's Web site.
"But we're not talking about 'loose lips sinking ships' anymore; it's more than that. Our enemies are advanced and as technologically savvy as they've ever been. They're looking for personal information about our sailors, our families and our day-to-day activities as well as ways to turn that information into maritime threats."

Group: Internet posts indicate threat to Navy in Persian Gulf


Stars and Stripes


Messages posted recently by prominent contributors to Islamist Web sites are seeking specific information on U.S. military targets in hopes of carrying out an attack on Navy ships in the Persian Gulf, according to a U.S.-based group that tracks such sites.

One post on the jihadi forum Al-Falluja calls for information such as the “name of the particular naval unit to be targeted, its exact location, the number of troops on board the warship and their ranks, familial status, where their families live, the type of weapons the warship carries … and the number of nuclear bombs onboard,” reads a report compiled by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute.

Extremists reportedly are “on the verge of attacking U.S. ships in the gulf,” according to Steven Stalinsky, the group’s executive director.

Al-Qaida has been preparing for months to carry out attacks and has obtained weapons from the Somali mujahedeen that “Western countries sent to the Somali government but which instead fell into the hands of the muahideen,” according to information the group released Friday, translating an article from Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas that cited Kuwaiti security sources.

While there are occasional threats, Stalinsky said, the ones that appeared around the New Year are more significant because of who is putting them out.

“The postings that have come out recently are from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which has been in the news recently, and it is from some of their leaders and some of the main people and ... head moderators,” he said. “[The message] definitely carries more weight.”

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has claimed responsibility for the failed bombing attempt of a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.

Agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service warned U.S. Naval Forces Central Command/5th Fleet of the threats on Dec. 31, said Cmdr. Chris Sims, Navy spokesman.
“We take all threats, real or perceived, very seriously and therefore maintain a constant high level of vigilance to ensure the safety of our personnel both ashore and afloat,” Sims said.
Citing security reasons, he declined to say whether the Navy changed any force-protection measures or policies or tactics as a result of the threats.
NCIS agents “continually evaluate threats based on credibility, imminence and specificity, and disseminate information about those threats” throughout the Navy, said NCIS spokesman Ed Buice.
“Regarding recent jihadist calls for intelligence-gathering on U.S. naval activities, the same practices apply. We have evaluated these communications and incorporated our assessment of them into several classified daily threat summaries that have been distributed to naval commanders worldwide.”
Observers and investigators come across countless bits of information, not all of which generate alerts. However, it was the specificity and the call for personal familial information that led NCIS to caution 5th Fleet, a Navy official said.

The recent posts generated a lot of blog traffic, and contributors answered the call for photos of U.S. naval assets by posting photographs to the sites, Stalinsky said.

A Dec. 30 Al-Falluja post called for a gathering of intelligence on U.S. Navy targets. The post was “in response to the call by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to Muslims to kill the Crusaders in the Arabian Peninsula on land, in the air, and at sea,” a portion of a Middle East Media Research Institute report says.

Included on the post were diagrams and a dated picture of the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier. The photos, however, are from open-source Web sites, Stalinsky said, and easily attainable.

“While you can never know for sure who is putting something on a Web site, we know most of the important people by their names since we have been monitoring this for so long, and we can tell by the response,” he said.
One message posted Monday on Al-Falluja by a prominent contributor called “Abu Raghd” warns that al-Qaida has adopted a policy of “a blow for a blow and a raid for a raid” against America, the Middle East Media Research Institute stated.
“The writer states that, just as the Nigerian bomber surprised America with a new type of a bomb, future attacks will likewise involve ‘advanced bombs which your [security] apparatuses will fail to detect, or operations on an extravagant scale,’” reads the group’s translation.
The threats illustrate the precarious balance of keeping members informed and operational security, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Rick West said in a message posted Wednesday on the Navy’s Web site.
“Anyone who thinks our enemies don’t monitor what our sailors, families and commands are doing via the Internet and social media had better open their eyes,” West wrote. “These sites are great for networking, getting the word out and talking about some of our most important family readiness issues, but our sailors and their loved ones have to be careful with what they say and what they reveal about themselves, their families or their commands.”

139 Terrorists Attacks Since 9-11 Compared to 41 in Obama's 2009




139 Muslim American Planned Attacks Since 9-11... ........BUT 41 in just ONE year 2009 under Obama.


Not only were there more planned attacks in 2009 but information sharing was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration.

The American Spectator

When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was placed on the British government’s watch list in May 2009 and banned from entering the country, the U.S. embassy in London (and by extension the U.S. State Department), as well as U.S. intelligence agencies, were notified of this move as part of information-sharing agreements entered into by a number of Western governments after the September 11, 2001 attacks, says a U.S. State Department employee on the condition of anonymity because of concern that by speaking about the situation, their job could be endangered.

“We have agreements with a number of different countries that work with us cooperatively on intelligence matters,” says the State Department employee. “A number of the treaties work through our justice departments or foreign offices or intelligence and interior or homeland security agencies. Several departments here in Washington got the information from London and it didn’t trigger anything within our own system.

This employee says that despite statements from the Obama Administration, such information was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration, but that since the changeover “we are encouraged to not create the appearance that we are profiling or targeting Muslims. I think career employees were uncomfortable with the Bush procedures and policies and were relieved to not have to live under them any longer.”

The Obama Administration is attempting to shift blame for Abdulmutallab, pointing reporters to information that the Nigerian was given a visa by the U.S. embassy in London to travel to the U.S. in 2008, around the same time that he graduated from University College London, a well-respected university. But the State Department source says at that time Abdulmutallab was not on a watch list and traveled to Houston on that visa without incident. A year later, in May 2009, his application for a student visa to return to Britain was rejected because the college Abdulmutallab claimed he would attend was “bogus,” and that red flag was shared with U.S. State Department, Homeland Security Department, U.S. Justice Department, and almost certainly U.S. intelligence agencies.

CIA Bomber Calls For Attacks On US (video)




The Taliban released a video today of the Jordanian doctor and Al-Qaeda blogger before he killed 7 CIA officers in a suicide bombing. In the video Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi says the attack will be the first of revenge operations against the Americans and their drone teams outside the Pakistani border.

The CIA bomber also says in the video that he can not be bought off by the West before his suicide attack:

The Taliban said that the attack was a revenge operation for drone attacks in the Pakistani border regions ordered by President Obama.


'CIA bomber' video indicates Taliban's reach

BBC

The Jordanian “double agent” who killed himself and seven American Central Intelligence Agency officials in Afghanistan’s Khost province last month must have been very sure of the success of his mission.

“This… attack will be the first of revenge operations against the Americans and their drone teams outside the Pakistani border, after they killed the Amir [chief] of Tehrik Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Baitullah Mehsud, may God’s beneficence be upon him,” he apparently said in a video broadcast released on Saturday.

The video shows the purported Jordanian suicide bomber sitting next to Baitullah Mehsud’s successor and the new Pakistani Taliban, or TTP, chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, and reading from written text.

“We [the Jordanian himself and the Taliban, whom he describes as Mujahideen or the holy warriors] arranged together this attack to let the Americans understand that our belief in Allah… cannot be exchanged for all the wealth in the world,” he says.

It would appear that he had already set the trap for the CIA agents at the time he made the video.

…The father of the accused Jordanian has said that the man who appears on the video is definitely his son.

The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the Khost attack, alongside similar claims by the Afghan Taliban and al-Qaeda.

All of them said that the attack was planned to avenge the 6 August 2009 killing of Baitullah Mehsud in a drone strike.



Wild Thing's comment..........

Maybe one of the gate crashers can give this video to Obama.

I would expect this is the very worst single blow the CIA has ever suffered. That it comes under a President who transparently dislikes and distrusts them, and is inclined to use them as scapegoats, makes it sting all the more. If there is any silver lining to this dark cloud, it may serve as a reminder to everyone on the CIA team as to the true nature of the enemies that face Western civilization, both from without and within.

Christmas Terrorist Pleads Not Guilty


Attempted Terrorist Bomber Abdulmutallab Pleads "Not Guilty" in Detroit Federal Court



CNN

Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the man charged with trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane on December 25, pleaded not guilty Friday to six federal charges.

Asked by Magistrate Judge Mark Randon whether he was taking any medication, he replied that he was taking painkillers but that he understood the six charges he faced.

His lawyer, chief federal defender Miriam L. Siefer, entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf.

Throught the hearing, which lasted less than 10 minutes, security was tight. At least three dogs were inside the courtroom, and security guards were stationed at the doors. Members of the media had to wait in line outside the courtroom until 9 a.m. before passes were distributed allowing them entry. Anyone who wanted to leave the courtroom had to ask a security guard for an access card and then display it before being allowed to re-enter.

AbdulMutallab was arraigned in a Michigan federal courtroom Friday afternoon.

AbdulMutallab faces a federal indictment issued Wednesday, including an attempt to murder the other 289 people aboard.

The seven-page indictment charges AbdulMutallab with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction; attempted murder within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; willful attempt to destroy and wreck an aircraft within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; willfully placing a destructive device in, upon and in proximity to an aircraft within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; and two counts of possession of a firearm/destructive in furtherance of a crime of violence.



GOP senators to Obama: Try Abdulmutallab in military court


Politico

Twenty-two Republican senators sent a letter to the president Friday evening, urging him to try in military court the Nigerian man accused of attempting to blow up a U.S.-bound airliner on Christmas Day.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old Nigerian who allegedly tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Detroit from Amsterdam, is being tried in Michigan — he pleaded not guilty Friday in a federal court there.
But if the GOP senators had their druthers, he’d be tried in military court — a request that was also made when President Barack Obama said he would try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a civilian court in New York.

The letter’s signatories, including top Judiciary Committee Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and top Intelligence Committee Republican Kit Bond, contend that the only way to uncover “the methods and means Abdulmutallab used to avoid detection by U.S. officials” is to try him in a military tribunal. They say that federal court allows too many privileges.

Obama Reaffirms Guantanamo Bay Prison Closure Plans



Obama reaffirms Guantanamo Bay prison closure plans

BBC

Barack Obama has said a Yemen-linked plot to bomb an airliner will not prevent the closure of the US prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The US has suspended the repatriation of Yemeni prisoners held there in the wake of the plot, claimed by a Yemen-based al-Qaeda offshoot.

Nearly half of those remaining at the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are from Yemen…

“It was always our intent to transfer detainees to other countries only under conditions that provide assurances that our security is being protected,” Mr Obama said on Tuesday, during a briefing on security reviews ordered after the airliner plot.
“With respect to Yemen in particular, there’s an ongoing security situation which we have been confronting for some time, along with our Yemeni partner.”
Obama said the camp would still be shut, “in a manner that keeps the American people safe and secure”.
“Make no mistake, we will close Guantanamo prison, which has damaged our national security interests and become a tremendous recruiting tool for al-Qaeda,” he said.
“In fact, that was an explicit rationale for the formation of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.“

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama has no shame whatsoever. He has been President for 50 weeks, and he still blames his predecessor whenever something goes wrong.

Obama is a clear and present danger to the security of the United States.

" But make no mistake"....said Obama.

You know I TRULY HATE the way he speaks, not only WHAT he said but his speech pattern, his talking down to everyone.

HEY FREAK Obama....LISTEN Up!!!!

Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said, “Thank you,” and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Freed Guantánamo Inmates Are Heading For Yemen To Join al-Qaeda fight


White House Still Plans to Ship Gitmo Detainees Back to Yemen


.


Said Ali al-Shihri, Ibrahim Suleiman al Rubaish (ID not confirmed); Abdullah Saleh Ali al Ajmi; and Abdullah Mahsud


Freed Guantánamo inmates are heading for Yemen to join al-Qaeda fight

Times Onlilne.co.uk


At least a dozen former Guantánamo Bay inmates have rejoined al-Qaeda to fight in Yemen, The Times has learnt, amid growing concern over the ability of the country’s Government to accept almost 100 more former inmates from the detention centre.

The Obama Administration promised to close the Guantánamo facility by January 22, a deadline that it will be unable to meet. The 91 Yemeni prisoners in Guantánamo make up the largest national contingent among the 198 being held.

Six prisoners were returned to Yemen last month. After the Christmas Day bomb plot in Detroit, US officials are increasingly concerned that the country is becoming a hot-bed of terrorism. Eleven of the former inmates known to have rejoined al-Qaeda in Yemen were born in Saudi Arabia. The organisation merged its Saudi and Yemeni offshoots last year.

The country’s mountainous terrain, poverty and lawless tribal society make it, in the opinion of many analysts, a close match for Afghanistan as a new terrorist haven.

Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, voiced concern about the growing strength of al-Qaeda in Yemen. “Obviously, we see global implications from the war in Yemen and the ongoing efforts by al-Qaeda in Yemen to use it as a base for terrorist attacks far beyond the region,” she said.

A Yemeni, Hani Abdo Shaalan, who was released from Guantánamo in 2007, was killed in an airstrike on December 17, the Yemeni Government reported last week. The deputy head of al-Qaeda in the country is Said Ali al-Shihri, 36, who was released in 2007. Ibrahim Suleiman al-Rubaish, who was released in 2006, is a prominent ideologue featured on Yemeni al-Qaeda websites.

Geoff Morrell, the spokesman for the Pentagon, said: “This is a large question that goes beyond the issue of transferring detainees. The bulk of the remaining detainees are from Yemen and that has been the case for a long time. We are trying to work with the Yemeni Government on this.”


The number believed to have “returned to the fight” in the May 2009 estimate was double that of a US estimate from June 2008. US officials acknowledged that more detainees were known to have reoffended since, but the number has been classified.

“There is a historic trend and it continues. I will only say that we have said there is a trend, we are aware of it, there is no denying the trend and we are doing our best to deal with this reality,” Mr Morrell said.

Officials said that a higher proportion of those still being held were likely to return to terrorism because they were considered more of a security threat than those selected in the early stages of the release programme.

The ‘Revolving Door’ of the Obama Administration and the Eric Holder Department of Justice.


This is a teachable moment and wee wee wee’d better pay attention! But according to the video at the top of this post, it looks like Obama has no intention of stopping his sending the terrorists back to Yemen.

Terrorists should know that captured terrorists will be water boarded for information, tried by our military, found guilty, and shot.

Deal On Table For Christmas Day Terrorist, Omar Abdulmutallab! WTH????



.

Deal On Table For Christmas Day, Omar Abdulmutallab!

Politico

The U.S. Government is offering the suspect charged with attempting to bomb an aircraft on Christmas Day, Omar Abdulmutallab, some kind of incentives to share what he knows about Al Qaeda, White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said Sunday.

Asked why Abdulmutallab should cooperate given his right, as criminal defendant, to remain silent, Brennan replied: "He doesn't have to but he knows there are certain things that are on the table... if he wants to engage with us in a productive manner, there are ways he can do that."

Asked if Abdulmutallab's willingness to talk changed once he had an attorney, Brennan declined to answer. "I'm not going to address what he did before or after he talked with a lawyer," the adviser said.

Brennan declined to say what criteria are used to decide whether a prisoner should be taken into criminal court or before a military commission. "There are no downsides or upsides in particular cases," he said. "What we're trying to do is make the right determination in particular cases."




Wild Thing's comment........


Omar Abdulmutallab is NOT a criminal, he is a TERRORIST! Listen up Obama he is one of YOUR people.

I was watching Fox when he said it. Then I started spewing expletives, and had to leave the room. Also, he referenced Bush more than the present admin. Oh, let’s keep blaming Bush. Do they have any other Mantra in this WH?


Making a deal with a terrorist? Oh great. What is Omar Abdulmutallab going to do, demand a cabinet position???


John Brennan: another Friend of Terrorists

This man is insane as well as Obama and Janet N. and the rest of them. They might as well pay the terrorists to attack our country. They are offering him a deal, when he should have been shot on sight. Wonder how many of us are going to die before we get rid of the fools and villains in the White House.

The Jihadis must all be laughing like crazy right now. This is the perfect time for them to attack America with Obama as president.

Meanwhile, three brave Navy Seals are at risk for court martial for doing their job!!!!!!!

Newark Airport Terminal locked Down Over Security Breach






Man Skirts Newark Airport Security; Flights Delayed

FOX News


NEWARK, N.J.

A man walked through a screening checkpoint exit into the secure side of a terminal at one of the nation's busiest airports on Sunday night, and flights were grounded for hours and passengers had to be re-screened while air safety officials searched for him.

Airline passengers were allowed to begin boarding their planes at Newark Liberty International Airport about six hours after the man was seen bypassing security.

The man walked down an exit lane at Terminal C about 5:30 p.m., Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Ann Davis said, and screening was halted while authorities looked at surveillance tapes to try to identify him.

Passengers were then moved from the secure side of the terminal, which is used primarily by Continental Airlines Inc., to the open side to go through screening again, Davis said in a statement. Passengers waited in check-in areas.

The terminal was searched thoroughly to make sure no dangerous objects were in it before the security checkpoints reopened around 11:45 p.m., the TSA said. The man wasn't found, but the TSA said its re-screening effort ensured every passenger was fully screened.

Security officers instructed the passengers, who expressed frustration over the situation.

Alison Day, of York, England, was supposed to leave for Manchester, England, at 7:30 p.m. She was traveling with a party of seven including an 18-month-old and a 5-year-old.

"I'm not angry that this is happening, but I'm angry that there was a lack of organization," she said.
She said her party, headed home after a Caribbean cruise, was escorted out of Continental's lounge but given no further instructions
.
Continental spokeswoman Susannah Thurston said it was an airport security issue not involving the Houston-based airline.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs area airports, assisted the TSA following the possible security breach.

Also Sunday, the TSA said passengers flying into the United States from nations regarded as state sponsors of terrorism and countries of interest will be subject to enhanced screening techniques, such as body scans and pat-downs.
Starting Monday, all passengers on U.S.-bound international flights are subject to random screening.
The Department of State lists Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria as state sponsors of terrorism. The other countries whose passengers will face enhanced screening include Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen.



FOX News


Newark Liberty International Airport is on lockdown after reports of a man breaching security at the Continental Airlines terminal, according the FAA Web site and cable news reports.


A male was observed going in the wrong direction through the security area at the aiport's Terminal C, Transportation Security Administration officials told Fox News.


Once aware of the situation, TSA officials with assistance from the New York Port Authority reviewed security videotape to identify the errant individual.


As of 8:40 p.m. Sunday, security was unable to locate that individual in the terminal.

All passengers in the secure part of the terminal were ordered to evacuate the terminal and go through the screening area once again, Fox News learned.

What a mess! It has only been a little over a week, one would think TSA would be jumping at the chance to OVERLY secure airports.

US Embassy in Yemen Closed Amid Terror Threats Gives WIN To Terrorists



US shuts embassy as al-Qaeda 'plans attack in Yemen'

BBC

A report on the news that the United States and Great Britain have closed their embassies in Yemen in response to terror threats from Al-Qaeda:

The US and Britain have shut their Yemen embassies after threats from an al-Qaeda offshoot linked to an alleged failed US plane bomb plot.

The UK Foreign Office told the BBC its embassy in the capital Sanaa was closed "for security reasons", hours after the US announced its mission had been shut.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown earlier said the UK and US would step up counter-terror efforts in Yemen.

There are mounting fears lawless Yemen is becoming an al-Qaeda haven.

Mr Brennan, the US Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, told ABC's This Week TV programme that the group had "several hundred members" in Yemen and was posing an increasing threat there.

"This is something that we've known about for a while," he said. "We're determined to destroy al-Qaeda, whether it's in Pakistan, Afghanistan, or in Yemen."
Mr Brennan added: "We know that they have been targeting our embassy, our embassy personnel."

It was not clear when the UK or US embassies would reopen.

In a statement on its website, the US embassy said it would be closed on Sunday "in response to ongoing threats by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to attack American interests in Yemen".

The embassy also reminded US citizens in Yemen to be aware of security.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said the British embassy was closed on Sunday and a decision would be taken later on whether to open it on Monday.

The embassy closures follow last week's threat by a group called al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, urging Muslims to help in "killing every crusader who works at their embassies or other places".




.



Newsbusters

Bill Kristol has set forth a stinging indictment of the Obama admin's handling of the war on terror. His two-minute monologue on today's Fox News Sunday delineated a devastating bill of particulars:

It was a mistake to treat Abdul Mutallab as a criminal defendant rather than as an enemy combatant: “Mr. Brennan [Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser who appeared earlier] said to you that we’re very worried that there’re other Abdul Mutallabs out there. This Abdul Mutallab was there for four months. He might know who the others are. He might know their names. Will you let him lawyer up?”

As to Brennan's claim that there was no "smoking gun" regarding Abdul Mutallab: "He is the smoking gun," going on to detail all the red flags surrounding him. "Frankly, for Mr. Brennan to say, well, no smoking gun, that itself shows a kind of not-serious-about-the-war mentality."

… “Closing the embassy in Yemen last night? No one wants State Department officials put at risk, but that is a sign of weakness. Closing the embassy? We can’t protect our own embassy in Yemen, a place where we have special operations forces. A place we say we’re working with the government on the front lines of the war on terror? And there’s a terror threat, and we close the embassy? That’s a victory for al Qaeda. This last week has been a victory for al Qaeda in that region, I’m afraid.”

Yemen is a festering hole of muslim maggots.

Another win for the Islamists, who are learning each day just how far we can be pushed without any consequences. And so, America under Obama, tucks it's tail between it's legs and skoots for the woods!! How disgusting!! Obama is showing them how far they can go. And it won’t be pretty when that all changes.

How about we get all of our people out, that is, all non-Muslims, and then go after the terrorists there like there is NO tomorrow......for them.


Interestingly, MSM was reporting last night that this latest bombing attempt is ‘owned’ by the Obama administration since they/he knew before Christmas that Jihadists were coming after us wearing explosive underwear. (I guess this means blaming Bush is getting old). Newsweek broke the story.

Failure As President, Popularity Tanking, Obama FINALLY Admists What We Already Know ~ Al-Qaida Behind Christmas Day Attack




Obama: Al-Qaida Behind Christmas Day Attack



In his Saturday morning radio address, Mr. Obama went further than he has in previous statements on the attack to connect the extremist group with the Dec. 25 attack. He pledged to work with officials in other nations to combat terrorism, including Yemen, where officials believe Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian accused of trying to destroy Northwest Flight 253, was schooled in terrorist techniques.

"We know that he traveled to Yemen, a country grappling with crushing poverty and deadly insurgencies. It appears that he joined an affiliate of al Qaeda, and that this group -- Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- trained him, equipped him with those explosives and directed him to attack that plane headed for America," Mr. Obama said in his address, a copy of which was released by the White House. He delivered the radio address from Hawaii, where he is vacationing this week.
"This is not the first time this group has targeted us."



Wild Thing's comment..........

Qaeda admits to this 3 days ago and he finally connects the damn dots. OMG Hahaha What a total waste as a human being he is.

It took this poser a week to figure it out. Let’s pray that he never gets that 3 AM phone call. We will all be dead before he figures out what to do next.


"a country grappling with crushing poverty and deadly insurgencies"

Freely translated, “we must now send billions and trillions of US dollars to Yemen to fight poverty ....”


And what does the fact that Yemen is a poor country have to do with it. sheesh! This is nothing more than a typical diversionary tactic by the leftist/marxists. They keep trying to use the mantra that terrorism is the result of poverty. Hardly works in the pantybomber case. OR anyone that has even a tiny bit of knowledge of what ISLAM is about.

I believe that’s the first time The One has ever used the word “terrorism”...Nepolitano calls it “man caused destruction”.

Did anyone notice that the Head Muslim from Kenya didn't acknowledge the passengers for taking down the terrorist? I know the FBI won't, their egos wouldn't allow them.


He is so full of it and so is Janet N. I really can't stand these people.

And Happy New Year to anyone that did NOT vote for this horrible person.

Obama KNEW Possible Terror Threat Before His Trip To Hawaii





Obama Got Pre-Christmas Intelligence Briefing About Terror Threats to "Homeland"

Newsweek

Mark Hosenball

President Barack Obama received a high-level briefing only three days before Christmas about possible holiday-period terrorist threats against the US, Newsweek has learned. The briefing was centered on a written report, produced by US intelligence agencies, entitled "Key Homeland Threats", a senior US official said.

The senior Administration official, who asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information, said that nowhere in this document was there any mention of Yemen, whose Al-Qaeda affiliate is now believed to have been behind the unsuccessful Christmas Day attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to bring down a transatlantic airliner with a bomb hidden in his underpants. However, the official declined to disclose any other information about the substance of the briefing, including what kind of specific warnings, if any, the President was given about possibly holiday attacks and whether Yemen came up during oral discussions.

According to the senior official, the holiday threat briefing, one in a series of regularly-scheduled sessions with top counter-terrorism officials, was held in the White House Situation Room on December 22.


Present were representatives of agencies involved in counter-terrorism policy and operations, including Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and FBI Director Robert Mueller. The CIA and National Intelligence Directors Office were represented by deputy agency heads: CIA deputy director Steven Kappes, and David Gompert, the principal deputy to National Intelligence Czar Dennis Blair. Also present was Michael Leiter, director of the National Counter-terrorism Center, a unit of the Intelligence Czar's office which was created after 9/11 to ensure that intelligence reporting about possible terrorist plots was shared quickly among all US agencies who might have some capability to do something about it.

The senior official said that beginning in early December, based on reports coming in from intelligence agencies, policy-makers had begun tracking a stream of information which alluded to a possible holiday-period plot against the US orchestrated from somewhere in Pakistan. However, the official said, this reporting later turned out to be "garbled" and it was determined that the threat probably was a washout. The official denied that the White House received any report, representing the concensus of US intelligence agencies, warning that a Holiday-period plot originating in Yemen and targeting the US homeland could be in the works.

In a background briefing for reporters on December 29, also attributed in an official White House transcript to a "senior administration official", that official asserted that in the wake of the attempted underpants attack, it had become clear to the President and top advisors that before Christmas, the US government was in posession of "bits and pieces" of information, which, if they had been properly knitted together, "could have...allowed us to disrupt the attack or certainly to know much more about the alleged attacker in such a way as to ensure that he was on, as the President suggested in his statement, a no-fly list."


In the briefing, the official identified three rough categories of information that the government had which could have been relevant to foiling the attack: information about Abdulmutallab and his plans, info about Al-Qaeda and their plans, and info "about potential attacks during the holiday period."

Asked about what kind of intelligence reporting was circulated to senior officials about possibly holiday period attacks before the failed underpants attack, a US intelligence official, who also asked for anonymity, explained: "As everybody knows, terrorists often speak in coded language, especially when they think their communications might be intercepted. There was no clear discussion of an attack, on Christmas or any other time, in the Middle East or anywhere else. But as veiled as the message was, it was spotted, processed, analyzed, and presented to senior policymakers as a warning sign-however vague-of a holiday attack. While this was handled properly, there were, to put it mildly, virtually no details at all. That happens." When Newsweek asked a senior Administration official about this characterization of a warning which was passed to White House policymakers, and whether it tracked what was presented at the December 22 Presidential briefing, the official would not comment.




Wild Thing's comment.........

He thumbed through it and flew to Hawaii so concerned was he. Guess he wasn’t “deeply concerned” like he said in his quickie speech. Obama was too busy worried about destroying our health care by getting the senate bill passed by Christmas. And besides Muslims are his brothers, he WUV's them.

Present were representatives of agencies involved in counter-terrorism policy and operations, including Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Congressman Peter King "Heads Should Roll' Over Security Failures"







"It's not just that mistakes were made but mistakes were made at every step along the way and I believe it's because this administration has set a tone that the war against terrorism is somehow not that important," said Rep. Peter King, R-Long Island.
Congressman King, the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, said the president must punish those responsible for the failures."Definitely heads should roll, not just as retribution against those people, but to send a signal from this president that he is serious, that this is the number one priority," Rep. King said.
"It would now be absolute insanity for us to be sending Guantanamo detainees, the hardest of the hard core terrorists, to Yemen," Rep. King said. "It would be criminal negligence."

I admire Congressman Peter King---he just doesn't give a rat's ass who he angers, he is going to suggest what's right whether it makes him popular or not. He created a fire storm suggesting its time for the US government to more closely monitor Mosques in the US. He fought the Democrats in congress to provide whistle blowers with “immunity for reporting suspicious activities and mitigating terrorist threats relating to transportation security."

Another Passenger on Flight 253 Says Christmas Bomber Had Help



Kurt Haskell, passenger on Flight 253 says Christmas bomber had help




Eyewitnesses: 2 arrested in Christmas flight terror

'How stupid do you think the American public is?'


wnd

Several passengers aboard the Christmas Day flight to Detroit where a Nigerian man attempted to blow up the airplane say a second passenger was arrested after the foiled terrorist attack – and they suggested other men may have played roles as well.

Kurt Haskell of Newport, Mich., and his wife, Lori, claim they were aboard Flight 253 as they returned from a safari in Uganda, seated only a few rows behind suspected attacker Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a man who admitted to affiliation with the terrorist group al-Qaida. Haskell presented a boarding pass to Michigan Live to show that he had been a passenger on the plane.

Kurt and Lori Haskell, both U.S. attorneys with Haskell Law Firm in Taylor, Mich., told the newspaper that prior to the flight they were seated on the floor near the boarding gate in Amsterdam when Abdulmutallab approached the gate with another "Indian man" who was dressed in an expensive suit.
Kurt Haskell told Michigan Live the unidentified man in the suit approached ticket agents and asked them if Abdulmutallab could board without a passport, and he tried to convince them Abdulmutallab was a Sudanese refugee.
"The guy said, 'He's from Sudan and we do this all the time,'" Haskell told the newspaper.

But Dutch security officials claim Abdulmutallab was carrying a valid Nigerian passport and U.S. visa, according to CBS News.

Charlie Keepman of Oconomowoc, Wis., told the Detroit News that his daughter, Ricki, saw yet another man videotaping the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit, including the episode when Abdulmutallab purportedly attempted to set off explosive chemicals in his underwear.

Following the foiled terrorist attack, Haskell said passengers were corralled into a small, evacuated luggage claim area of an airport terminal. Then, he says, bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in.
"During this time period, all of the passengers had their carry-on bags with them," he wrote in a posting on MLive.com. "When the bomb sniffing dogs arrived, one dog found something in a carry-on bag of a 30-ish Indian man."
Haskell explained that the second "Indian" man was not the same well-dressed person who assisted Abdulmutallab in boarding the flight. He said this man wore orange clothing.
"The man in orange, who stood some 20ft away from me the entire time until he was taken away, was immediately taken away to be searched and interrogated in a nearby room," Haskell explained. "At this time, he was not handcuffed. When he emerged from the room, he was then handcuffed and taken away."
Immediately after the questioning, Haskell said an FBI agent approached the remaining passengers and, referring to the man in orange, said, "You all are being moved to another area because this area is not safe. I am sure many of you saw what just happened and are smart enough to read between the lines and figure it out."

In his interview with MLive.com, Haskell said the agent's statement made him and other passengers believe an explosive may have been detected in the man's luggage. A second passenger, Daniel Huisinga of Fairview, Tenn., who was returning from an internship in Kenya, confirmed the account.

Haskell said authorities marched the remaining passengers out of the baggage claim area and into a long hallway.
"This entire time period and until we left customs, no person that wasn't a law enforcement personnel or a passenger on our flight was allowed anywhere on our floor of the terminal (or possibly the entire terminal)," he wrote. "The FBI was so concerned during this time that we were not allowed to use the bathroom unless we went alone with an FBI agent. We were not allowed to eat or drink, or text or call anyone."

Haskell said ever since the landing the FBI has insisted only one man was arrested for the airliner attack.

"However, several of my fellow passengers have come over the past few days, backed up my claim, and put pressure on FBI/Customs to tell the truth," he wrote.

Huisinga told reporters he, too, saw a man taken away in handcuffs at the airport after a dog search.

Another passenger, Roey Rosenblith, told the Huffington Post officials arrested a man in a gray suit.

"The only thing that I recall happening is seeing an Indian guy off to the side, an older gentleman wearing a gray suit leaning against the wall. Suddenly there was a police officer next to him pulling his arms back and putting handcuffs on him," he said. "The man didn't struggle, the bags which seemed to be his were left there, and he and the police officer disappeared around the corner."

Just today, the Detroit News reported a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed that officials had taken a second person into custody after the attempted bombing. But officials claim the handcuffed passenger was from a different flight, and the incident was not related.

Ron Smith, chief Customs and Border Protection officer in the Detroit office, told the newspaper, "There was a second person taken into custody, but it had nothing to do with Flight 253. They did see dogs, but again, it was a totally different incident."

But Haskell stands by his story, claiming officials are "playing the American public for a fool." He said their explanation would require the public to believe the following:

FBI and Customs officials allowed passengers from a separate flight to co-mingle with the passengers of Flight 253 during a critical investigation. Haskell insists that no one – aside from law enforcement and Flight 253 passengers – was allowed in the area while they were being detained.


Despite prohibiting passengers from drinking, eating, making calls and using the restrooms, FBI and Customs officials allowed people from other flights to "trample through the area and possibly contaminate evidence."


Haskell also added that no flights during that time allowed passengers to exit from the planes. The planes were held on the runway during the first hour of the detention period.


"You have to believe that the man that stood 20 feet from me since we entered customs came from a mysterious plane that never landed, let its passengers off the plane and let this man sneak into our passenger group despite having extremely tight security at this time," he added.

He said the public would be required to believe FBI and Customs officials were "hauling mysterious passengers from other flights through the area we were being held to possibly contaminate evidence and allow discussions with suspects on Flight 253 or to possibly allow the exchange of bombs, weapons or other devices between the mysterious passengers from other flights and those on flight 253."


"Seriously, Mr. Ron Smith, how stupid do you think the American public is?" he wrote.

Haskell said he believes a more plausible story is that law enforcement officials "realized that they screwed up and don't want to admit that they left Flight 253 passengers on a flight with a live bomb on the runway for 20 minutes" or that they "they left Flight 253 passengers in customs for one hour with a live bomb in a carry-on bag."

He also suggests "the man in orange points to a greater involvement than the lone wolf theory that they have been promoting."

Wild Thing's comment.........

But wait , our "friend" Janet Napolitano said , "The System Worked."


Officially, the Feds have changed their story three times.

This man Haskell has not changed his story, not once. He sounds credible to me and our government is not credible. It warrants further investigation.

And considering that the woman in charge of Homeland Security is the same woman who represented Anita Hill in her scurrilous testimony against Clarence Thomas, we can't trust anything that comes from her office.

I love the truth, and sometimes it takes a bright, credible witness from among us. I would refuse to fly commercial until they tell us the truth about his witnessed events.

What about that other guy they took away in handcuffs?

What part of passport clearance did the terrorist NOT go through in Amsterdam?

Please show the world the security tape of the terrorist with his Al Qaeda handler at the gate in Amsterdam. Amsterdam admitted the videotape exists. SHOW IT. OUR LIVES depend on it.

The involvement of a swarthy, "sharply dressed" man with the jihadist in Amsterdam and a second one detained upon landing in Detroit (with luggage signaled by the bomb-sniffing dog) blows to hell the Administration's insistence that this is just the work of a single, generic "extremist." It makes the whole thing look more like a sophisticated, well-organized, well-funded act of Islamic terrorism and, therefore, a Big Deal failure on the part of those keeping America safe.

HERE is something else to think about. Drudge had this story about Haskell at his site then he removed. I wonder if this below had anything to do with it??? Just womdering................





Travel blogger to challenge TSA subpoena in court

First Amendment Center

Associated Press

12.31.09


WASHINGTON — An Internet travel writer who was leaked an airline security directive asked the Transportation Security Administration today to postpone enforcement of a subpoena so he could challenge it in federal court.

Chris Elliott said TSA agents showed up at his house, demanding that he reveal who leaked the security directive that followed a Christmas Day attack on a Detroit-bound airliner. The directive included security measures that quickly became apparent to many travelers.

The administrative subpoena — a demand for information issued without a judge's approval — will be challenged next week in federal court in Orlando, Fla., said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Dalglish said she was acting as Elliott's spokesman on the issue.

TSA and its parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, had no immediate comment today.

Another travel blogger who received a subpoena, Steve Frischling, said he met with two TSA special agents Dec. 29 at his Connecticut home for about three hours and again Dec. 30 when he was forced to hand over his laptop computer.

Frischling said the agents threatened to interfere with his contract to write a blog for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines if he didn't cooperate and provide the name of the person who leaked the memo.
Dalglish said she was not speaking for Frischling, but added there was nothing to challenge if he had already handed over his computer. She said she could not remember the last time an administrative subpoena had been served on a reporter in last decade.
"They should seriously reconsider this," Daglish said. "Millions of fliers know these rules are out there."

The TSA directive outlined new screening measures that went into effect the same day as the airliner incident at Detroit. It included many procedures that would be apparent to the traveling public, such as screening at boarding gates, patting down the upper legs and torso, physically inspecting all travelers' belongings, looking carefully at syringes with powders and liquids, requiring that passengers remain in their seats one hour before landing, and disabling all onboard communications systems, including what is provided by the airline.

It also listed people who would be exempted from these screening procedures, such as heads of state and their families.

Pilots Union Points Out Obama's Janet Napolitano Outright LIES



'Underwear Bomber's' Alarming Last Phone Call

ABC news

By DANA HUGHES and KIRIT RADIA
ABUJA, Nigeria, Dec. 31, 2009

The accused "underwear bomber" made a dramatic final call to his father that he found so alarming, the father approached Nigerian officials who took him directly to the CIA's station chief in the Nigerian capital, sources told ABC News.

Current and former officials of the Nigerian government, including a source close to the suspect's family, say Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, called his father from Yemen with the warning that it would be his last contact.

It has previously been reported that the man's father, prominent Nigerian banker Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, went to Nigerian and American officials Nov. 19 to warn them that his son had been radicalized by Islamic militants in Yemen.

ABC News' sources said that during Abdulmutallab's final call, he told his father the call would be his last contact with the family. He said that the people he was with in Yemen were about to destroy his SIM card, rendering his phone unusable.

A senior U.S. official briefed on the matter tells ABC News that the phone call prompted the father to contact Nigerian intelligence, fearing that his son might be planning a suicide mission in Yemen. The Nigerian officials brought Mutallab directly to the CIA station chief in Abuja Nov. 19.

The next day the embassy sent out a thin report to U.S. embassies around the world warning Adbulmutallab may be associating with extremists in Yemen.

The CIA official compiled two more robust reports following the meeting with the suspect's father. One was sent back to CIA's Langley, Va., the other remained in draft form in Nigeria and was not circulated until after the attempted attack on Christmas Day, according to a U.S. official.

In what has been seen as a possible failure to stop the bomber from boarding a U.S.-bound plane, the alert prompted counterterrorism officials to put Abdulmutallab's name into a database of more than half a million others that the U.S. suspects of ties to terrorism.

Abdulmutallab told federal officials after his capture that he spent a month at the home of an al Qaeda official in Yemen while he was trained for jihad, officials have told ABC News.

He left Yemen Dec. 7 and weeks later was aboard a Northwest Airlines flight that stopped in Amsterdam and then continued on to Detroit.

Union contradicts Napolitano

Politico

The pilots’ union at American Airlines said Wednesday that the Transportation Security Administration didn’t warn flight crews appropriately during the terrorist attempt on a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas, Dow Jones reports.

The union, the Allied Pilots Association, wrote to American Airlines that “some pilots were left out of the loop” when TSA told some airlines to notify only pilots on inbound transatlantic flights, Dow Jones said.
“The TSA should have mandated that information about this security event be passed on to all airborne flights,” the APA wrote.

The letter seems contradict Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s comments that the “system worked” in responding to the terrorism attempt. Clarifying her remarks that were criticized, she said on the “Today” show, “once the incident occurred, moving forward, we were immediately able to notify the 128 flights in the air of protective measures to take, immediately able to notify law enforcement on the ground, airports both domestically, internationally, all carriers, all of that happening within 60 to 90 minutes.”

The APA said it suggested policy changes to the House Committee on Homeland Security, specifically that “airline managements immediately notify all airborne flights any time there is a Level 3 or Level 4 event,” Dow Jones said.

Wild Thing's comment........

Nigerian Intelliegnce contacted the CIA on Nov 19th.

The Obama administration had every clue but a Las Vegas neon sign flashing Terrorist here!

The tools and intelligence worked fine in this case. The big failures were the Obama decision makers in key positions who failed to act by ignoring the intelligence they received.

So when Obama places the blame on Bush is nothing but lies and distortions. And we need to remember too how Obama set a new tone when he took office and threatened to prosecute CIA officers for doing their jobs.

Obama is terrorizing Our constitution, Our economy, Our Bill of Rights, Our free-market economy, Our health care system, and if that's not enough He'll use Our Air force One to do a low fly over New York City just to gauge Our reaction.

Obama IS the enemy within. And Napolitano: “The System worked” and "if you quote me on that you are taking me out of context."

“...all 128 flights...”

On any given day, there are 5,000 flights in the air over the US. None of the domestic flights were notified, no flight crews were warned. This is as big a scandal as the bomber.

Napolitano is totally incompetent and needs to go. To trust the safety and security of the American people to her is unfathomable.

First she goes on CNN and says the 'system worked' in regards to the panty bomber. Then when she and her boss B. HUSSEIN Obama realize how completely the system FAILED, they trot her out on Monday to say the 'system worked' after the 'system failed'.

Now we realize from the pilot's union, that the system failed BEFORE the attempted bombing, and AFTER the attempted bombing. To assume only international flights were at risk while this situation was unfolding is beyond stupid. We had no information EITHER way that more bombers were in the air, either on domestic flights or international flights. To notify only the pilots on int'l flights while not telling the pilots flying domestic routes is beyond stupid. Either tell all or tell none, especially when you do not have the facts.

She outright lied about ongoing security in the wake of what happened on flight 523.

Apparently Baghdad Butch still can't get her story straight, and the American people deserve much more.

Obama and His Administration Tip Off Al-Qaeda in Yemen


Obama officials tipped off Al-Qaeda in Yemen (al-Qaida on the Arabian Peninsula) that retaliation strikes are being planned against the local terrorists.

Officials: U.S., Yemen reviewing targets for possible strike

By Barbara Starr, CNN Pentagon Correspondent


Washington

CNN

The U.S. and Yemen are now looking at fresh targets in Yemen for a potential retaliation strike, two senior U.S. officials told CNN Tuesday, in the aftermath of the botched Christmas Day attack on an airliner that al Qaeda in Yemen claims it organized.

The officials asked not to be not be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information. They both stressed the effort is aimed at being ready with options for the White House if President Obama orders a retaliatory strike. The effort is to see whether targets can be specifically linked to the airliner incident and its planning.

U.S. special operations forces and intelligence agencies, and their Yemeni counterparts, are working to identify potential al Qaeda targets in Yemen, one of the officials said. This is part of a new classified agreement with the Yemeni government that the two countries will work together and that the U.S. will remain publicly silent on its role in providing intelligence and weapons to conduct strikes.



Awlaki personally blessed Detroit attack

The Washington Times


Anwar al-Awlaki, the same Muslim imam suspected of radicalizing the Fort Hood shooting suspect, blessed the Detroit undie bomber’s mission.

The Nigerian accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner had his suicide mission personally blessed in Yemen by Anwar al-Awlaki, the same Muslim imam suspected of radicalizing the Fort Hood shooting suspect, a U.S. intelligence source has told The Washington Times.

The intelligence official, who is familiar with the FBI's interrogation of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, said the bombing suspect has boasted of his jihad training during interrogation by the FBI and has said it included final exhortations by Mr. al-Awlaki.

"It was Awlaki who indoctrinated him," the official said. "He was told, 'You are going to be the tip of the spear of the Muslim nation.'"


Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has said an al-Awlaki/Abdulmutallab link "appears" to be the case.

"It appears that just like with Major Hasan, Awlaki played a role in this," he told ABC News. "All roads point back to Yemen; they point back to Awlaki. I think it is a pretty deadly combination."

According to the U.S. intelligence official, Mr. Abdulmutallab cited Maj. Hasan in his interrogations, but only to praise his religion's diversity, as "an example of how Islam accepts even American soldiers."

4 Days Later Obama Finally Speaks 5 Minutes And Obama Calls Flight 253 Attacker "Isolated Extremist"


Obama Remarks On Failed Northwest Flight 253 Attack - 12/28/09 ( FOUR DAYS LATER)




Transcript of Obama remarks on airline security and terror watch lists

The Washington Post

I wanted to take just a few minutes to update the American people on the attempted terrorist attack that occurred on Christmas Day and the steps we're taking to ensure the safety and security of the country.

The investigation's ongoing. And I spoke again this morning with Attorney General Eric Holder, the secretary of homeland security, Janet Napolitano, and my counterterrorism and homeland security adviser, John Brennan. I asked them to keep -- continue monitoring the situation to keep the American people and members of Congress informed.

Here's what we know so far: On Christmas Day, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was en route from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit. As the plane made its final approach to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, a passenger allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body, setting off a fire.

Thanks to the quick and heroic actions of passengers and crew, the suspect was immediately subdued, the fire was put out, and the plane landed safely. The suspect is now in custody and has been charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft.

A full investigation has been launched into this attempted act of terrorism, and we will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.

Now, this was a serious reminder of the dangers that we face and the nature of those who threaten our homeland. Had the suspect succeeded in bringing down that plane, it could have killed nearly 300 passengers and crew, innocent civilians preparing to celebrate the holidays with their families and friends.

The American people should be assured that we are doing everything in our power to keep you and your family safe and secure during this busy holiday season.

Since I was first notified of this incident, I've ordered the following actions to be taken to protect the American people and to secure air travel.

First, I directed that we take immediate steps to ensure the safety of the traveling public. We made sure that all flights still in the air were secure and could land safely. We immediately enhanced screening and security procedures for all flights, domestic and international. We added federal air marshals to flights entering and leaving the United States. And we're working closely in this country, federal, state and local law enforcement, with our international partners.

Second, I've ordered two important reviews, because it's absolutely critical that we learn from this incident and take the necessary measures to prevent future acts of terrorism.

The first review involves our watch list system, which our government has had in place for many years to identify known and suspected terrorists so that we can prevent their entry into the United States. Apparently the suspect in the Christmas incident was in this system, but not on a watch list, such as the so-called no-fly list. So I have ordered a thorough review, not only of how information related to the subject was handled, but of the overall watch list system and how it can be strengthened.

The second review will examine all screening policies, technologies and procedures related to air travel. We need to determine just how the suspect was able to bring dangerous explosives aboard an aircraft and what additional steps we can take to thwart future attacks.

Third, I've directed my national security team to keep up the pressure on those who would attack our country. We do not yet have all the answers about this latest attempt, but those who would slaughter innocent men, women and children must know that the United States will more -- do more than simply strengthen our defenses. We will continue to use every element of our national power to disrupt, to dismantle and defeat the violent extremists who threaten us, whether they are from Afghanistan or Pakistan, Yemen or Somalia, or anywhere where they are plotting attacks against the U.S. homeland.

Finally, the American people should remain vigilant, but also be confident. Those plotting against us seek not only to undermine our security, but also the open society and the values that we cherish as Americans. This incident, like several that have preceded it, demonstrates that an alert and courageous citizenry are far more resilient than an isolated extremist.


As a nation, we will do everything in our power to protect our country. As Americans, we will never give in to fear or division. We will be guided by our hopes, our unity, and our deeply held values. That's who we are as Americans; that's what our brave men and women in uniform are standing up for as they spend the holidays in harm's way. And we will continue to do everything that we can to keep America safe in the new year and beyond.

Before I leave, let me also briefly address the events that have taken place over the last few days in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The United States joins with the international community in strongly condemning the violent and unjust suppression of innocent Iranian citizens, which has apparently resulted in detentions, injuries, and even death.

For months, the Iranian people have sought nothing more than to exercise their universal rights. Each time they have done so, they have been met with the iron fist of brutality, even on solemn occasions and holy days. And each time that has happened, the world has watched with deep admiration for the courage and the conviction of the Iranian people who are part of Iran's great and enduring civilization.

What's taking place within Iran is not about the United States or any other country. It's about the Iranian people and their aspirations for justice and a better life for themselves. And the decision of Iran's leaders to govern through fear and tyranny will not succeed in making those aspirations go away.

As I said in Oslo, it's telling when governments fear the aspirations of their own people more than the power of any other nation.

Along with all free nations, the United States stands with those who seek their universal rights. We call upon the Iranian government to abide by the international obligations that it has to respect the rights of its own people.

We call for the immediate release of all who have been unjustly detained within Iran. We will continue to bear witness to the extraordinary events that are taking place there. And I'm confident that history will be on the side of those who seek justice.

Thank you very much, everybody. And Happy New Year.




Spotting the absurd disconnect of Obama's response to the Northwest Airlines bomber........


Obama, speaking today: "We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable."

Politico:

TEEING OFF: A half-hour after President Obama vowed to catch the terrorists behind a plot to blow up a plane on Christmas, he arrived at 10:40 a.m. at the Luana Hills Country Club, where a golf course winds through a rain forest, the pool reports.

Wild Thing's comment........


"isolated extremist" .........To call this attempted terrorist attack an “isolated extremist” OMG This jerk is going to get a lot of innocent people killed. I doubt it will even register with his monumental ego.


Al Qaeda has already claimed credit for the attack and promises that there are others in Yemen waiting for their chance.

The way the Obamination sees it, 9/11 was an isolated event; Ft. Hood was an isolated event; the terrorist attack at the Little Rock Recruiting office, the USS Cole, the Marine barracks, the Shoe Bomber was an isolated event etc. , now this guy is an isolated event. I guess a total event would be the multiple bombings in America .... but then he'd say they were all isolated events .....unless they all happened simultaneously.

Between Muslim Obama's statement and Napolitano saying,”The system worked”......... PRAY for our country and our troops.

Obama's "I" and "me" Me' count:

I = 12

We/we’re = 22

terror/terrorism = 5

Muslim = a big fat ZERO

These counts include nobama’s excuses for the terrorist attack and his whining about the protestors in Iran.

Photo of the Northwest Airlines Bomb ...the "Panty Bomber"





Photos of the Northwest Airlines Bomb


ABC News


A singed pair of underwear with a packet of powder sewn into the crotch, seen in government photos obtained exclusively by ABC News, is all that remains of al Qaeda's attempt to down an American passenger plane over Detroit.


The underwear with the explosive worn by alleged Northwest 253 bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is shown in this undated photo. (ABC News)

As seen in these photos, the alleged bomb consisted of a packet of powder sewn into the briefs of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian. Al Qaeda took credit Monday for the attempted bombing, boasted of its ability to overcome U.S. intelligence and airport security, and promised new attacks.

The photo shows the slightly charred and singed underpants with the bomb packet still in place. The photo includes a ruler to provide scale.



The failed Nigerian Muslim Airline bomber had 80 grams of PETN sewed into his underwear. Here is a video showing 50 grams of PETN blowing a small tree in two:

Clueless Napolitano Now Concedes System 'Failed Miserably'


Clueless Napolitano Now Concedes System 'Failed Miserably'



It took a tough question from Matt Lauer, but after having laughably claimed that "the system worked," DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has now conceded the obvious: that the security system that permitted Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board NWA 253 with explosives "failed miserably."

On Today and in other interviews this morning, Napolitano attempted to use her own ignorance as a shield. Each time she was hit with a hard question, her response was to the effect "yeah, we're wondering about that ourselves." She also continued to point the finger back at George Bush, repeatedly mentioning that the security procedures in place were formulated under the Bush administration. Whatever happened to "change you can believe in"?

But back to Today, where Lauer laudably asked Napolitano the necessary question: how could she possibly have claimed, as she did yesterday, that the "system worked"?

MATT LAUER: You made a comment over the weekend and I want to call attention to that because a lot of people are disagreeing with it this morning. You talked about this incident aboard this Northwest flight and you said "when it came right down to it, the system worked." A lot of people don't think the system worked at all, that the only thing that prevented outright disaster was luck. Can you respond to that?


JANET NAPOLITANO: Sure, I think the comment is being taken out of context. What I'm saying is that once the incident occurred, moving forward, we were immediately able to notify the 128 flights in the air of protective measures to take, immediately able to notify law enforcement on the ground, airports both domestically, internationally, all carriers, all of that happening within 60 to 90 minutes, so --

LAUER: So you're only talking about what happened after this man tried to ignite this explosive device on the plane.

NAPOLITANO: Indeed.

LAUER: You would then concede that the system prior to that, the system that's supposed to prevent something like this from happening, failed miserably?

NAPOLITANO: It did. And that's why we are asking a lot of the same questions I heard you asking before this interview. How did this individual get on the plane? Why wasn't the explosive material detected? What do we need to do to change perhaps the rules that have been in place since 2006 for moving somebody from the generic database to more elevated status. All of that under review right now.

LAUER: So many man-hours, so much money, Madam Secretary, has gone into securing fliers in this country and around the world, and so let's talk about it: how does a guy who's on this general terror list, who then buys a one-way, trans-Atlantic ticket with cash, checks no luggage, a man whose own father has written a letter to authorities both in his own country and U.S. embassy authorities, saying he's worried that his son has become more radicalized and might attempt some kind of a suicide mission. How is this guy not the perfect candidate for a strip search or a full-body scan?

NAPOLITANO: I've asked the same questions.

We've got another question: what is Janet Napolitano, head of a department that she now admits "failed miserably," still doing in office?

Note: As part of her "it's Bush's fault" defense, on Morning Joe Napolitano mentioned that young Umar had been issued his US visa "in June, 2008," i.e., during the Bush administration. OK, but that would have been before his father was frantically trying to alert the Obama admin that his son had apparently turned into a terrorist.

Wild Thing's comment........


I know they’re not being followed because Obama doesn’t want to be perceived as profiling his own. There is no reason this terrorist should have been on any flight heading this way.

She also continued to point the finger back at the Bush administration, repeatedly mentioning that the security procedures in place were formulated under the Bush administration.

Obama has been President for a year. If something needed to be "fixed", why didn't he fix it? Oh, I forgot, his idea of "fixing" the problems is shutting down Gitmo, prosecuting CIA agents, reaching out to terrorist nations, etc. etc.

Each time she was hit with a hard question, her response was to the effect "yeah, we're wondering about that ourselves."

Good Lord - and these are our LEADERS.

What an EMBARRASSMENT!

I say she needs to be waterboarded. heh heh

Al Qaeda Takes Credit for Plot Of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and Ft. Hood Terrorist Nidal Hasan




The Wall Street Journal

Al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack on Northwest Flight 253, and U.S. officials said the claim appears valid -- the clearest indication yet that the attempted takedown wasn't just the work of a lone radical inspired by Islamist rhetoric, as some investigators initially believed.

A statement attributed to the group "al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula" claimed it was retaliating for what it says was the U.S.'s role in a recent Yemeni military offensive on al Qaeda, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute. The statement, accompanied by a photo of the suspect, said the "high-tech device". Abdulmutallab carried had had a "technical" problem.

"The claim at this point appears valid," said one U.S. counterterrorism official. However, the depth of the relationship between the terror group and Abdulmutallab is still unclear.

The explosive used by Abdulmutallab, a substance known as PETN, is believed to have been used in the attempted assassination in late August of Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the Saudi deputy interior minister and point man on the war on terror. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for that attack.

Abdulmutallab's method of concealing the device -- sewn into his underwear, where security personnel are unlikely to conduct a pat down -- is similar to the Saudi attack.




Al Qaeda Press Release Calls Nidal Hasan A “Moujahed Brother”, Calls For Soldiers to Follow His Act


This is the link:
http://alflojaweb.com/vb/showthread.php?t=97593

It is Al Qaeda official press release posted earlier on "al falojah" which is an Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist forum. The press release is in Arabic. It has be translated by a friend, jveritas, that knows the language very well. ~ Wild Thing

In the latest press release by Al Qaeda where they took responsibility for the terrorist attempt on the plane in Detroit they said the following:

“We call on every soldier working in the crusader armies and puppet governments to repent to allah and follow the example of the hero Moujahid brother Nidal Hasan, and kill with all available tools every crusader to bring victory to religion of allah and to keep his word in the land.”

From the context of the press release by “every soldier” they mean “every muslim soldier working in the US military and other Western militaries”.

So now it is official, terrorist "Nidal Hasan" the terrorist that attacked Fort Hood is an Al Qaeda.

Below is the full translation of the Al Qaeda press release taking responsibility for the terrorist attempt on the plane in Detroit. Also in this press release Al Qaeda terrorists call for attacks against US and Western embassies and they claim that they have developped an explosive that cannot be detected and this is the explosive used by terrorist "Omar Al Farouq" on the Detroit plane. Al Qaeda terrorists vowed that they are going to try again until they succeed.

Beginning of the Translation:

"The Operation by Brother Moujahed Omar Al Farouq Al Nigiree As A Retaliation Against the American Aggression Against Yemen

By the grace of allah the brother and Moujahed hero Omar Al Farouq performed a quality act on the board of an American plane, taking off from the city of the Dutch city of Amsterdam to American city of Detroit, during the celebrations of "Christmas" holidays on Friday, December 25, 2009. He overcame all their advanced technological devices and security barriers installed in world airport and he did it with courage, bravery, and no fear of death, relying on allah, destroying the great myth of U.S. and international intelligence, showing its fragility, forcing its nose in the dirt, making what they spent in the development of security techniques grief to them.


The unity of faith and Islamic brotherhood prompted this young rich man from Nigerian roots, brother Moujahedd Omar Al Farouq to retaliate directly against the oppressive American aggression against the Arabian Peninsula, and by the grace of allah through direct coordination with the moujahideen in the Arabian Peninsula after the brutal bombing using cluster bombs and cruise missiles launched from U.S. ships territories which occupy the Gulf of Aden against the proud Yemeni tribes in Abeen, Arhabm and finally in Shibuwa, and killing dozens of Muslim women and children and where entire families were killed, and these operations were a Yemeni-US-Saudi coordination as well as coordination with a number of neighboring countries.

"The Operation by Brother Moujahed Omar Al Farouq Al Nigiree As A Retaliation Against the American Aggression Against Yemen

By the grace of allah the brother and Moujahed hero Omar Al Farouq performed a quality act on the board of an American plane, taking off from the city of the Dutch city of Amsterdam to American city of Detroit, during the celebrations of "Christmas" holidays on Friday, December 25, 2009. He overcame all their advanced technological devices and security barriers installed in world airport and he did it with courage, bravery, and no fear of death, relying on allah, destroying the great myth of U.S. and international intelligence, showing its fragility, forcing its nose in the dirt, making what they spent in the development of security techniques grief to them.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) Says It Like It Is...Obama Messing Up BIG Time On Security




The Hill article on FOX News Sunday:

Rep. Pete Hoekstra was on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace today and blamed Barack Obama again for the attempted bombing of the Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) said Sunday that it is fair to blame the Obama administration for the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Detroit on Christmas Day.

Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Select Intelligence Committee said that the administration has not taken the threat of terrorist threats on the U.S. seriously.

Asked by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace if it is fair to blame the Obama administration for the attacks, the Michigan Republican replied “”Yeah, I think it really is.”

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a frequent critic of the Obama administration, echoed Hoekstra's complaints about the White House's handling of national security issues.
DeMint called the unionization of airport security workers the "the top priority now of the administration" and said that closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will not "appease" extremist groups.
Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) also said that "This is a jolt for us. This is a wake up call."
He said that the U.S. needs to improve sharing of information between State Department and law enforcement who track terrorists.
"This war is going to go on for 50 years," he said. "We had better wake up."





Wild Thing's comment..........

I believe they are testing the system.


And Obama doesn`t care if Americans live or die. Americans are on his low-priority list.

LIES From Obama's Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano



There have been 32 terror-related incidents on US shores since 9/11, and 12 of those occurred in 2009.

Christmas Day 2009 a failed detonator saved the passengers on Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit.

Sunday morning Obama's Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on “This Week” stated that “everything went according to clockwork” in how passengers, crew and the government reacted to the attempted bombing of Flight 253.

Napolitano: "The system worked"

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up the Amsterdam-Detroit flight this week demonstrated that "the system worked."


Jake Tapper’s questioning of Napolitano-—

Jake keeps asking the right questions and Napolitano keeps handing him a crap sandwich.

'This Week' Transcript: Napolitano
Transcript of "This Week" interview with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

NAPOLITANO: Well, I think, first of all, we are investigating, as always, going backwards to see what happened and when, who knew what and when. But here -- I think it's important for the public to know, there are different types of databases.

And there were simply, throughout the law enforcement community, never information that would put this individual on a no-fly list or a selectee list. So that's number one.

Number two, I think the important thing to recognize here is that once this incident occurred, everything happened that should have. The passengers reacted correctly, the crew reacted correctly, within an hour to 90 minutes, all 128 flights in the air had been notified. And those flights already had taken mitigation measures on the off-chance that there was somebody else also flying with some sort of destructive intent.

So the system has worked really very, very smoothly over the course of the past several days.

TAPPER: Well, let me ask you a question about intelligence-sharing. When the suspect's father went to the U.S. embassy in Nigeria and said, I'm worried because my son is displaying extremist religious views, how was that information shared with other parts of the U.S. government, or did it just stay at that U.S. embassy?

NAPOLITANO: Well, again, we are going to go back and really do a minute-by-minute, day-by-day scrub of that sort of thing. But when he presented himself to fly, he was on a tide (ph) list. What a tide list simply says is, his name had come up somewhere somehow.

NAPOLITANO: The no-fly and selectee list require that there be specific, what we call, derogatory information. And that was not available throughout the law enforcement community. He went through screening in Amsterdam as he prepared to board a flight to the United States.

The authorities in Amsterdam are working with us to make sure that screening was properly done. We have no suggestion that it wasn't, but we're actually going through -- going backwards, tracing his route.

But I think important for the traveling public recognize that A, everybody reacted as they should. We trained for this. We planned for this. We exercised for this sort of event should it occur.


So don't think somebody at TSA is not on the job if they're not doing exactly at one airport what you saw at another. There will be different things done in different places.

TAPPER: But, Secretary Napolitano, you keep saying everybody acted the way they were supposed to. Clearly the passengers and the crew of that Northwest Airlines flight did. But I think there are questions about whether everybody in the U.S. government did.

And here's a question for you, how many of -- so many of us are subject to random security searches all the time, how come somebody who is not on a terrorist database isn't subject to more stringent security when they check in to a flight to the U.S.? Why does that automatically just happen?

NAPOLITANO: Well, if he had had specific information that would have put him on the selectee list or indeed on the no-fly list, he would not have actually gotten on a plane.

But those numbers pyramid down. And they need to, because again, there is lots of information that flies about this world on a lot of different people. And what we have to do in law enforcement is not only collect and share, but do it in the proper way.

Now once this incident occurred, everything went according to clockwork. Not only sharing throughout the air industry, but also sharing with state and local law enforcement, products were going out on Christmas Day, they went out yesterday, and also to the industry to make sure that the traveling public remains safe. .

And I would leave you with that message, the traveling public is safe. We have instituted some additional screening and security measures in light of this incident. But again, everybody reacted as they should, the system -- once the incident occurred, the system worked.

TAPPER: What can you tell us about the suspect? Has a definitive connection with Al Qaida been established yet?

NAPOLITANO: That is now the subject of investigation. And it would be inappropriate for me to say and inappropriate to speculate. So we'll let the FBI and the criminal justice system now do their work.

TAPPER: OK. One final question for you, Madam Secretary: An October report from the Government Accountability Office says that almost $800 million has been spent on new screening technologies by the Transportation Security Administration since 2002, but, quote, "since TSA's creation, 10 passenger screening technologies have been in various phases of research, development, test and evaluation, procurement and deployment, but TSA had not deployed any of these technologies to airports nationwide."

More than eight years after 9/11, an incident obviously involving airplanes, why have these technologies not been deployed to airports nationwide?

NAPOLITANO: Well, without going into the accuracy or inaccuracy of that particular report, new technology has been deployed, but there is a more important point to be made, which is that, A, technology is evolving all the time, it's not a static situation.

And B, even with the most sophisticated technology, everybody needs to play a part in their security. That's why I think the actions of the passengers and the crew on this flight deserve praise. That's why the men and women who have been working really overtime Christmas Day, yesterday, whatever, to make sure that all other flights remain safe, why that system is so important.

Asked by CNN's Candy Crowley on "State of the Union" how that could be possible when the young Nigerian who sought to set off the bomb was able to smuggle explosive liquid onto the flight, Napolitano responded: "We're asking the same questions."
Napolitano added that there was "no suggestion that [the bomber] was improperly screened."




Wild Thing's comment...........

First I am shocked that a CNN reporter actually dared to ask a Democrat a tough question.LOL Well hell has not frowzen over yet but this was a good question for sure.

So what is the system? Have we been installing a Dutch tourist on each flight? This stupid woman, Janet Napolitano !...it “worked” only because PASSENGERS defended themselves.

If she defines the system as one where terrorists are allowed to smuggle then detonate explosive devices aboard airplanes, then by all accounts she’s right. Amazing.

Napolitano: Incompetent or Evil or both = Dangerous!


Liberalism leads to pathological lying, that much is obvious.

I swear these people WANT something to happen!!

Sunday Second Incident Another Flight From Nigeria Bound For Detroit Same Flight Number Requested Emergency Landing





.



Police Surround Plane at Detroit Airport After Reports of Suspicious Activity




SUNDAY ....Northwest Airlines Flight 253 sits on the tarmac after requesting emergency help at Detroit Metropolitan Airport




Disruptive NWA Flight 253 passenger in custody

New York Post


A Nigerian man in his thirties aboard the same Delta/Northwest flight that was attacked on Christmas Day has been taken into custody, reports Fox News.

Law enforcement officials say no device has been found on or with the detained passenger and that he does not appear to be a threat, reports CNN.

Northwest Airlines Flight 253 requested emergency assistance upon landing after the crew reported suspicious behavior from a "verbally disruptive" passenger.

The crew observed a passenger who got up and down from his seat several times and then barricaded himself in the bathroom for about an hour.

Upon landing, the aircraft was immediately surrounded by emergency crews as passengers deplaned at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

The remaining 255 passengers have safely disembarked from the aircraft.

The TSA said the plane was being held at a remote location at Detroit airport for more screening.

This comes a day after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was charged for attempting to blow up a flight with the same airline, number and path, as it was also travelling from Amsterdam to Detroit.

The Christmas Day terror attempt has left security heightened and officials on edge.

Commercial airline passengers may not rise from their seats during the final hour of their flights or have any personal belongings on their laps during the hour before landing, according to new government rules announced by some airlines yesterday.

Two Sources told Fox News that the Nigerian man taken into custody today boarded a plane in Lagos, Nigeria with no baggage.

Fox News also reported that federal authorities know who the man is, but have declined to release any information about him or whether he is connected to Abdulmutallab.


Second Nigerian possible failed attack on a flight to Detroit from Amsterdam

Local news video reporting a second incident involving a Nigerian national being "detained" by police at the Detroit Metro Airport after he was reported for being "unruly" during the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. Reports indicate the man barricaded himself in the plane's bathroom for an hour, and had boarded the plane with no luggage.


.

Incredible Coincidence?


FOX News

Police have arrested an airline passenger following a disruption on the same Detroit-bound flight that was attacked Christmas Day by a Nigerian man who allegedly attempted to blow up the aircraft while in flight.

A law enforcement official says the man removed from a Sunday flight to Detroit posed no security risk to the plane.

The official says the passenger was taken into custody after becoming verbally disruptive on landing. Subsequent interviews by investigators determined he was a businessman who became ill during the flight.

Two sources tell Fox News that the suspect boarded a plan in Lagos, Nigeria, with no baggage, and said the FBI has already sent an e-mail alert to other federal agencies notifying them of the incident.

A source told Fox News that the man taken into custody at the Detroit airport was a Nigerian national in his 30s. Federal officials know who the suspect is, but won't provide any more details.

Detroit's Metro Airport spokesman John Wintner said there was a report of suspicious activity on the Delta/Northwest Airlines Flight 253 from Amsterdam Sunday. That is the same flight that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian man, was suspected of attempting to blow up over Detroit on Christmas Day.

White House spokesman Bill Burton said President Obama was notified of the disturbance Sunday as federal officials began reviewing airline security measures.
"The President was notified shortly after 9:00 a.m. Hawaiian time of the incident regarding an unruly passenger on the flight arriving in Detroit by NSS chief of staff Denis McDonough," Burton said. "The President stressed the importance of maintaining heightened security measures for all air travel and gave instructions to set up another secure teleconference briefing as soon as possible."

All 257 passengers and 12 crew have deplaned safely, said Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott. The flight landed in Detroit at 12:34 p.m. Sunday.

The plane has been moved to a remote location at the airport so authorities can conduct additional screening, Reuters reported.




Wild Thing's comment.......

Apparently, the Nigerian flying from Amsterdam to Detroit on same flight number but different day, caused a verbal disruption & locked himself in bathroom. Left Nigeria with no luggage.

And yet all the increased security is aimed at air travelers in general. How about just not letting Muslims get on a plane until they have gone through a complete body search.

Interview of Hero Who Led The Way In Subduing Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab





This is Jasper Schuringa, the passenger who led the way in subduing Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab - the terrorist who attempted to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 as it prepared to land in Detroit on Christmas Day.

Schuringa suffered some burns as he subdued Abdulmutallab, who had attempted to set off an explosive device strapped to his body. Instead, the device caught him on fire.

Jasper Schuringa, a video director and producer from Amsterdam, told CNN how helped the cabin crew to subdue Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old who reportedly ignited a small explosive device on on board the plane Friday as it prepared to land in Detroit.

Schuringa said he heard a sound that reminded him of a firecracker and someone yelling, “Fire! Fire!”
"I pulled the object from him and tried to extinguish the fire with my hands and threw it away," Schuringa said.

He said he screamed for water and pulled Abdulmutallab out of his seat and dragged him to the front of the plane.

Schuringa told CNN that Abdulmutallab seemed out of it and "was staring into nothing."

To ensure Abdulmutalla did not have other explosives on his body, Schuringa stripped off his clothes. He then handcuffed the alleged attacker with the help of a crew member.

He says that he sustained minor injuries during the take down.

"My hands are pretty burned. I am fine," he said. "I am shaken up. I am happy to be here."



B. HUSSEIN Obama MIA From His LOVE for being in front of the camera's as Al Qaeda Connected Terrorist Attempts Attack on Christmas Day

Barack Obama has kept his face in front of the American people nearly every day for two years from the Democratic primary, general election and first year of his presidency. Every event of note in America brings a statement from Obama and an appearances on TVs everywhere. Except for the brazen al Qaeda Christmas Day attack on America yesterday.

It has been over thirty-six hours since the terrorist attack on Northwest flight 253, yet Obama has not appeared before the American people to voice his outrage, or to voice his praise of the passengers and crew who thwarted the attempt, or even to just let the world know he is on top of the situation.

Instead, he golfs.

The front page of the White House website has nothing about the terrorist attack. The latest update on the front page is Obama's weekly address posted December 24th.

The White House Briefing Room section contains no statements on the terror attack. Its last posting was also on December 24th.

There have been no on camera statements by any member of the Obama administration since the terror attack.



Wild Thing's comment...........

God bless this Dutch man! Courageous and fast thinking and moving!

Rep. Peter King was on CNN as this was being finalized. He is making the point that it is a failure of leadership for Obama to have not addressed the nation over this.

Obama is so in love with the sound of his own voice and his own image that he plasters himself 24/7 on TV, but for this attack he hides from the camera.

Father Of Terrorist Tells US Authorities of Concerns Six Months Ago


Father of terrorist Abdul Mutallab Says He Reported Terrorist Son to US Authorities Six Months Ago


Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, former chairman off Nigeria’s First Bank, was said to be worried about his son’s increasingly ‘extreme’ religious views, a Nigerian newspaper reported.


The young man, who yesterday night attempted to ignite an explosive device aboard a Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan in the United States has been identified as Abdul Farouk Umar Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old son of Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, former First Bank chairman. Mutallab, a former minister and prominent banker recently retired from the bank’s board.

The older Mutallab, as at the time of filing this report, had just left his Katsina hometown for Abuja to speak with security agencies, family sources say. According to the family members, Mutallab has been uncomfortable with the boy’s extreme religious views and had six months ago reported his activities to United States’ Embassy, Abuja and Nigerian security agencies.

The older Mutallab was said to be devastated on hearing the news of Abdul Farouk’s attempted bombing arrest. A source close to him said he was surprised that after his reports to the US authorities, the young man was allowed to travel to the United States.

The family home of the Mutallabs in Central London, is currently being searched by men of the Metropolitan Police. THISDAY checks reveal that the suspect, Abdulfarouk Umar Muttalab who is an engineering student at the University College, London had been noted for his extreme views on religion since his secondary school days at the British International School, Lome, Togo.

At the secondary school, he was known for preaching about Islam to his schoolmates and he was popularly called “Alfa”, a local coinage for Islamic scholar. After his secondary school, the young man, family sources said went to University College London to study engineering and later relocated to Egypt, and then Dubai. While in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, he declared to his family members that he did not want to have anything to do with any of them again.

His father, Muttalab is a regular visitor to the US where he visits for medical check up and holidays. He is expected to issue a statement later today.



Al Qaeda members and supporters in Yemen held a massive rally 4 days ago in a remote area of the poor Muslim country. The members declared war against the US just days before the attempted plane bombing on a flight from The Netherlands to Detroit. The plot to blow up an American passenger jet over Detroit was organized and launched by al Qaeda leaders in Yemen.

Men claiming to be leaders of al Qaeda have made a rare public appearance in Yemen, telling an anti-government rally the fight is against the US, not the country's army. The statement was made at an al Qaeda training camp in southern Yemen.



Airlines: New rules keep passengers in seats


AP


Some airlines were telling passengers on Saturday that new government security regulations prohibit them from leaving their seats beginning an hour before landing

The regulations are a response to a suspected terrorism incident on Christmas Day.

Air Canada said in a statement that new rules imposed by the Transportation Security Administration limit on-board activities by passengers and crew in U.S. airspace. The airline said that during the final hour of flight passengers must remain seated. They won't be allowed access to carryon baggage or to have any items on their laps.

Flight attendants on some domestic flights are informing passengers of similar rules. Passengers on a flight from New York to Tampa Saturday morning were also told they must remain in their seats and couldn't have items in their laps, including laptops and pillows.

The TSA declined to confirm the new restrictions.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a statement Saturday that passengers flying to the U.S. from overseas may notice extra security, but she said the measures "are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same thing everywhere."

A transportation security official speaking on condition of anonymity because the official wasn't authorized to speak publicly said passengers traveling internationally could see increased security screening at gates and when they check their bags, as well as additional measures on flights such as stowing carryons and personal items before the plane lands.

"Father reported him to US Authorities six months ago"

"Mutallab has been uncomfortable with the boy's extreme religious views and had six months ago reported his activities to United States' Embassy"

Barack Hussein Obama the Muslim President who is responsible for renaming terror as manmade disasters was in charge on June 25, 2009.

A source close to him said he was surprised that after his reports to the US authorities, the young man was allowed to travel to the United States.

Regardijng the new rules for flying, TSA morons did not check this guy out.

Why doesn’t the rest of the civilized word copy the safety procedures that the Isrealis use? OH that's right, our country is more worried about being PC, and the Israeli procedures are politically incorrect. I stand by what I said, I would prefer the procedures that the Isrealis use.

Dems Don't Want To Fund Illinois GITMO-2



Plan to Move Guantánamo Detainees Faces New Delay

New York Times


Guantánamo Closure Delayed by One Full Year

WASHINGTON

Rebuffed this month by skeptical lawmakers when it sought finances to buy a prison in rural Illinois, the Obama administration is struggling to come up with the money to replace the Guantánamo Bay prison.

As a result, officials now believe that they are unlikely to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and transfer its population of terrorism suspects until 2011 at the earliest — a far slower timeline for achieving one of President Obama’s signature national security policies than they had previously hinted.

While Mr. Obama has acknowledged that he would miss the Jan. 22 deadline for closing the prison that he set shortly after taking office, the administration appeared to take a major step forward last week when he directed subordinates to move “as expeditiously as possible” to acquire the Thomson Correctional Center, a nearly vacant maximum-security Illinois prison, and to retrofit it to receive Guantánamo detainees.

But in interviews this week, officials estimated that it could take 8 to 10 months to install new fencing, towers, cameras and other security upgrades before any transfers take place. Such construction cannot begin until the federal government buys the prison from the State of Illinois.

The federal Bureau of Prisons does not have enough money to pay Illinois for the center, which would cost about $150 million. Several weeks ago, the White House approached the House Appropriations Committee and floated the idea of adding about $200 million for the project to the military spending bill for the 2010 fiscal year, according to administration and Congressional officials.

But Democratic leaders refused to include the politically charged measure in the legislation. When lawmakers approved the bill on Dec. 19, it contained no financing for Thomson.

The administration will probably not have another opportunity until Congress takes up a supplemental appropriations bill for the Afghanistan war. Lawmakers are not likely to finish that bill until late March or April.

Moreover, the administration now says that the current focus for Thomson financing is the appropriations legislation for the 2011 fiscal year. Congress will not take that measure up until late 2010.

Frustrated by the difficulties in obtaining financing from Congress, administration officials had discussed invoking a little-known statute that would allow the president to declare a national emergency and then use military funds allocated for other construction projects to buy and retrofit the Illinois prison.

That statute, however, has never been used for a project quite like this one. Fearing that lawmakers would be angered by such a move and could respond by erasing the statute, the administration decided not to invoke it.

Matthew Waxman, who was assistant secretary of defense for detainee affairs in the Bush administration, said the Obama administration would need lawmakers’ support for its long-term post-Guantánamo plans. Invoking emergency powers to unilaterally buy Thomson, he said, would be “poking Congress in the eye in a way that would be very counterproductive.”



Wild Thing's comment..........

And still, the administration cannot explain WHY they want to close Gitmo and transfer these terrorists to US soil.

Obama Told 3 Hours Later of Failed Terrorist Attack



Congressman Peter King On Airliner "Terrorist" Incident



The Washington Post


A White House official said the incident was an attempted act of terrorism. The FBI is investigating and President Obama, celebrating Christmas in Hawaii, was told of the incident about three hours after the plane landed, officials said.

Obama has told White House officials that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel, a spokesman said. Nevertheless, officials said, they are not prepared to raise the terrorism alert level, currently at orange -- or the second-highest of five levels -- for domestic and international air travel.

The suspect is Abdul Farouk Abdul Mutallab, a federal official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing. ABC News and NBC News reported that Abdul Mutallab, 23, attends University College London, where he studies engineering.

Although not on the TSA's "no-fly" list, Abdul Mutallab's name appears to be included in the government's records of terrorism suspects, according to a preliminary review, authorities said.

Abdul Mutallab has told federal investigators that he had ties to al-Qaeda and traveled to Yemen to collect the incendiary device and instructions on how to use it, according to a federal counterterrorism official briefed on the case. Authorities have yet to verify the claim, and they expect to conduct several more interviews before they determine whether he is credible, the official said.
Federal authorities have been told that Abdul Mutallab allegedly had taped some material to his leg, then used a syringe to mix chemicals with the powder while on the airplane, one official said.
But doing so "caused him to catch on fire," Richelle Keepman, who sat a few rows in front of Abdul Mutallab, told WDIV-TV.
Another passenger on Flight 253, Syed Jafry of Holland, Mich., told the Detroit Free Press that he noticed a glow three rows ahead in the Airbus 330, then smelled smoke. The next moment, Jafri recounted, "a young man behind me jumped on" Abdul mutallab.
Jafry said there was a lengthy commotion, after which the passenger was restrained in a first-class seat as the plane continued its landing at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.
Michigan native Melinda Dennis, who was sitting in across the aisle from Abdul mutallab, told the Free Press that he "was burned very severely on his leg" but remained "very calm and didn't show any reaction to pain."



Wild Thing's comment...........

Obama; who is in Hawaii celebrating whatever he celebrates on December 25, was NOT TOLD ABOUT TODAYS FAILED AL QUADA TERRORIST ATTACK FOR 3 HOURS.

I am absolutely outraged - 3 hours?

The left lost their minds over Bush collecting his thoughts for 6 minutes but Obama can't be bothered for 3 hours?!?!

It was on the news within minutes. How in the heck doesn’t the POS President not get the info for 3 hours? Somebody would have been fired if Bush wasn’t informed in a timely manner.

Obama can't be bothered for 3 hours, says security measures are just "peachy as is". And he won't increase our current threat level.


And of course not a word about the islamic terrorist that’s destroying our country from the inside? What’s his name...Obama.

Obama has not even made it to a full year yet and how many terrorist attacks have we had.

Little Rock...military recruiter that was killed and another soldier injured. Even after FOUR DAYS he had not acknowledged the terrorist attack on the recruiting office ...unlike the Dr. Tiller-abortionist murder,which he couldn’t condemn fast enough!

Fort Hood

Obama won't even say, War on Terror


I guess HUSSEIN Obama was checking his “friends” list to make sure the misunderstood man wasn’t on it.


Hussein Obama completely denied that the Ft. Hood massacre was a planned, calculated terrorist act, and is treating the murderer of American military innocents as a criminal or insane offense. He is vacationing in Hawaii and was not told for three hours of this NWA airborne incident of terror (Did he request he not be informed of this type of incident while he was out playing, or did his incompetent staff forget to tell him. Either way he is not protecting us or the country). The word is out around the world, Obama’s America is now open season for all of our terrorist attackers. God help and protect us from our own leaders.

This site says it arrived at the gate at 12:01


FLIGHT Stats


Which means the flight landed before that...

Plane LANDED at 12PM which was 7AM HI time - but the incident happened before 7AM. So if the incident happened at 6:30ish HI time, he was notified sometime AFTER 9AM. Around 3 hours, if not more.

The FBI met the flight. Passengers weren’t off the plane until 4:30 after being interviewed by the FBI.

Passenger Ignites Explosive on Delta Flight, Al Qaeda Connection Reported



Passenger Ignites Explosive on Delta Flight, Al Qaeda Connection Reported


FOX News


A male passenger reportedly linked to terrorist organization al-Qaeda ignited a powdery substance prior to landing on a Delta Airlines flight to Detroit Friday. The suspect is believed to be Nigerian, Fox News reported.

Several people were hurt and one person was admitted to the University of Michigan Medical Center at Ann Arbor, hospital spokeswoman Tracy Justice said. An emergency was declared aboard the flight, operated as Northwest flight 253, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson.

The suspect, who suffered second-degree burns, told federal investigators he was directed by al-Qaeda, though authorities are questioning the veracity of that statement, ABC reported. A federal situational awareness bulletin noted that the explosive was acquired in Yemen with instructions as to when it should be used, ABC said.

The FBI was on the scene, Detroit office spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold told NewsCore. Berchtold declined to comment on the reports of a terrorist connection.

All 278 passengers on the Airbus A330 wide-body jet, which landed at 11:53 a.m. local time, have since deplaned at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, Delta spokesperson Susan Elliott said.

"Out of an abundance of caution, the plane was moved to a remote area where the plane and all baggage are currently being rescreened. A passenger is in custody and passengers are being interviewed," the Transportation Security Administration said in a statement.

It was not immediately clear if the suspect was subdued by crew or passengers.

Airport spokesman Mike Conway referred all questions to the FBI.

Nigerian man tries to light powdery substance on Detroit flight, officials say


A 23-year-old Nigerian man tried to light a powdery substance aboard a Northwest Airlines flight before landing in Detroit on Friday, a senior U.S. counterterrorism official told NBC News.

Two people noticed the attempt and a third person jumped on the man and subdued him, an airline official told NBC News.

The man is being treated at the burn unit of the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, officials said.

The man told investigators that he wanted to set off a bomb over the United States, and the incident is being handled as a possibile terrorism attack by both law enforcement and intelligence agencies, senior counterterrorism officials said.



Update:

The man said he was directed by al Qaeda to explode a small device in flight, over U.S. soil, ABC News has learned. Authorities have no corroboration of that information, and the credibility of the suspect’s statements are being questioned, officials said.

The man was apparently already on the government’s no-fly list of suspected terrorists, according to a senior intelligence official.

“The subject is claiming to have extremist affiliation and that the device was acquired in Yemen along with instructions as to when it should be used,” a federal situational awareness bulletin stated.



.

UPDATE:

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., identified the suspect as Abdul Mudallad. King said the flight began in Nigeria and went through Amsterdam en route to Detroit.

One of the U.S. intelligence officials said the explosive device was a mix of powder and liquid. It failed when the passenger tried to detonate it.

The passenger was being questioned Friday evening. “He appears to have had some kind of incendiary device he tried to ignite,” said one of the U.S. officials.

Authorities initially believed the passenger had set off firecrackers that caused some minor injuries.

An FBI spokeswoman in Detroit said the incident is being investigated. It came just as the flight, an Airbus 330 carrying 278 passengers, was arriving in Detroit from Amsterdam. “Next thing you know, there was a lot of panic,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I posted the two news stories because there are some differences as there are a lot of the time in information.


Most of the Hausa in Nigeria are Muslims.This failed bomber was a muslim who was on the US no-fly list. sheesh more of the stupid PC from security. And still see the bullies of the TSA searching the persons of little old white church ladies. it has nothing to do with security.


Sounds like an amateur effort to give us a Merry Muslim Christmas. Thank God the guy seems to have been an incompetent.


The man told investigators that he wanted to set off a bomb over the United States, and the incident is being handled as a possibile terrorism attack by both law enforcement and intelligence agencies, senior counterterrorism officials said.

Possible terrorism attack? He said he wanted to set off a bomb. Someone explain to me how that is NOT terrorism.

These politically correct "conterterrorism experts" are gonna get a whole bunch of us killed.


Good for Rep. Peter King in getting the name of the terrorist out there.


Oh and where is Obama, well he is in Hawaii and "they say" he is monitoring Delta flight situation (but still catching those waves)

Obama To Release 6 GITMO Detainees to al-Qaeda Hang Out Yemen




A sizable number of former Gitmo detainees who have returned to fighting jihad have been in Yemen, including the current leader of al-Qaeda's Yemeni branch (one of the most active in the world) Said Ali al-Shihri.



Six Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo Bay to be repatriated

The Washington Post

The Obama administration is planning to repatriate six Yemenis held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a transfer that could be a prelude to the release of dozens more detainees to Yemen, according to sources with independent knowledge of the matter.

The release is a significant first step toward dealing with the largest group of detainees at the prison — there are currently 97 Yemenis there — and toward meeting President Obama’s goal of closing the facility.

But Yemen’s security problems and lack of resources have spawned fears about its ability to monitor and rehabilitate returnees. Critics of the administration charge that returning detainees to Yemen, a country where al-Qaeda is believed to be thriving, is tantamount to returning terrorists to the battlefield.

The transfer will be closely monitored and, if successful, could lead to the release of other Yemenis who have been cleared to go home by a Justice Department-led interagency review team, which examined the case of each detainee held at Guantanamo Bay. Obama set up the review process to accelerate the closure of the detention center.


Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.), a critic of the administration policy on Guantanamo, said Yemeni detainees pose a particular risk because of the instability of their home country.

"Stop. These men are dangerous," Wolf said when asked about the transfer. "I believe they will be involved in terrorism that will cost American lives."

The Obama administration attempted to forge a deal with Saudi Arabia that would allow Yemeni detainees to attend its highly regarded rehabilitation program. But Saudi officials said the program, which relies on strong family and tribal involvement, was ill-suited for Yemenis.

Officials in Yemen, the poorest Arab nation, insist that they need financial assistance from the United States to successfully reintegrate returning detainees.



Wild Thing's comment..........

The Yemenis have such a great track record of dealing with these guys. Want to bet they are back on the battlefield fighting us within a few months?

Obama Is Stalling On Giving Congress Intelligence About Fort Hood Terrorist



Obama Administration is Stalling on Giving Congress Intelligence About Fort Hood Shooter, Says Hoekstra CNS By Chris Neefus

CNSNews.com


Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, says the Obama administration is stalling in providing information to the leaders of the House and Senate and the congressional intelligence committees on the multiple murders allegedly committed by a radical Muslim Army officer at Fort Hood more than a month ago.

So far, the committee chairman and congressional leaders have received no detailed, substantive briefing on the event and what is known about its perpetrator.

“You know, they’re playing out the string,” Hoekstra said Thursday. “We’re going home next week, (and) they will have effectively made it through three months with giving no substantive briefings on Fort Hood.”
CNSNews.com asked Hoekstra whether it was “a constitutional affront not to have the Gang of 8 briefed on this?”
“Oh yeah, sure, absolutely,” said Hoekstra.

The Gang of 8 is a group of leaders from the House and Senate who by law are supposed to be briefed on U.S. intelligence activities when the matter is too sensitive to share with the full intelligence committees. The group includes the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate intelligence committees and the majority and minority leaders of each chamber.

Additionally, the law holds that the administration must “ensure that the congressional intelligence committees are kept fully and currently informed of the intelligence activities of the United States.”


When a reporter said he thought the Gang of 8 had been briefed on the intelligence report regarding the attack, Hoekstra said the committees had been given a preliminary briefing a few weeks ago that lacked substantive information.

~snipet~
Hoekstra, who has been asking for more information on Hasan and the murders at Fort Hood since he wrote a November 9 letter to Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and the heads of each intelligence agency, said the Obama administration was not being transparent.

“It’s now three and a half, four weeks later,” said Hoekstra. “I would assume that in the last four weeks we’ve gathered lots of info that should be shared with the intelligence committees.” There is a “lack of transparency here,” Hoekstra said, and “it is unbelievable the material and the information that they’re withholding from us, from the American people.”

Hoekstra said that a report on the Fort Hood incident had been delivered to President Obama two weeks ago.

“I know that the (Fort Hood) report was delivered to the President on November 30, so I talked to Director Blair last week and said, ‘Hey, I’d just like an update,’ you know? There are a lot—potentially lots—of areas that have ties to foreign intelligence and foreign threats-- international threats. Give us an update,” said Hoekstra.
“I’d like to know who Hasan was in contact with, what happened to his money and these types of things. Who else he might have been talking to in the United States? All of this kind of information. Supposedly we got access to his computers, supposedly we got access to his email, his phone records, financial records, all of these kinds of things,” said Hoekstra.
Hoekstra said Blair has been putting off a meeting. “So I asked for a briefing last week,” said Hoekstra. “Mr. Blair thought he’d be able to give me one. He was told, ‘No,’ and then he said, ‘I’m not going to make a commitment, but I think that we’ll be able to give you one next week,’ which would be this week. Well, he’s out of the country until late tomorrow (Friday).”
“I talked to his (Blair’s) office yesterday (Wednesday), and you know the answer is now, ‘No briefing this week.’ It’s unbelievable,” said Hoekstra.
When Hoekstra was asked if he wanted to be briefed on the President’s report or on the Fort Hood incident in general, he said: “On anything--on any intelligence that they’ve gathered! They are not willing to share it with the intelligence committee. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what his—shouldn’t the intelligence committee know what his relationship was to Aulaqi, what other foreign people he would be talking to? No briefing.”
Hoekstra said the Obama administration was stalling on giving out the information. “You know, they’re playing out the string,” said Hoekstra. “We’re going home next week, (and) they will have effectively made it through three months with giving no substantive briefings on Fort Hood.”
Hoekstra said Democrats had their priorities out of order by focusing on salacious news instead of the incident. “And at the same time, we are subpoenaing the people who crashed the India state dinner,” he said, referring to Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the couple who attended President Obama’s first state dinner without an invitation. “I mean, it is like, there’s something wrong here.

Mysterious MUSLIM Group Buys Building Next to Ground Zero For Mosque




Worshipers exit the old Burlington Coat Factory near ground zero, which now houses a prayer space.


.




Parts of a landing gear from one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center on 9/11 broke through the roof and two floors. The Burlington Coat Factory had not yet opened, and employees were having breakfast in the basement.



Mosque At the World Trade Center: Muslim Renewal Or Insult Near Ground Zero


An identified group with unknown sponsors has purchased building steps away from where the WorldTrade Center once stood — to turn it into potentially one of the largest New York City mosques.

At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards away from where Osama Bin Laden’s airborne Islamist bombers killed nearly 3000 people back in 2001.
The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times — which put the story on its front page Wednesday — that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into ‘’an Islamic center near the city’s most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zero’s more unexpected and striking neighbors.’’


The 61-year-old Imam said he paid $4.85 million for it — in cash, records show. With 50,000 square feet of air rights and enough financing, he plans an ambitious project of $150 million, he said, akin to the Chautauqua Institution, the 92 Street Y or the Jewish Community Center.

The origins of such monies are unexplained; neither are the countries or entity advancing such huge donations. Most US mosques, including many in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are funded directly or indirectly by Saudi Arabia the country to which 15 of the 19 hijackers who bombed the World TradeCenter belonged. The UAE, Qatar and Iran are other major sponsors across the USA.

The money trail is an important question that must be answered by the Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg with more than a bland comment by one of his spokesmen, Andrew Brent, who quipped to the Times, “If it’s legal, the building owners have a right to do what they want.”

At the moment, the location is not designated a mosque, but rather an overflow prayer space for another mosque, Al Farah, at 245 West Broadway in TriBeCa, where Imam Feisal is the spiritual leader. Call this creeping annexation. On 9/11, the Burlington building, with 80 employees in its basement, is where a piece of a plane plunged through the roof, from either Flight 11 or Flight 175 crashing into the south tower at 9:03 a.m..

As a former New York Times and Wall Street Journal correspondent, and as a New York Sun columnist who covered Islamic Fundamentalism extensively overseas and in the USA, I find the facts oddly lacking. The story as reported fails to answer, and avoid asking, so many pertinent questions.

The source of money matters as a significant part of the hundreds of mosques being built and already erected in this country double up as cultural Islamic centers for distributing literature-- Islamist propaganda in fact—from Bay Ridge Brooklyn to Detroit, and for schooling growing Muslim minorities. They house Imams of unknown origin and education, many of whom do not speak a word of English but preach in Arabic and Urdu -- radical messages, it often turns out.

As a reporter familiar with the Arab communities of the USA, I doubt the faithful fork out all that money for mega mosques, and if they did, the mayor’s office should prove it, not merely accept someone’s say so. It is an established fact that a significant percentage of the mosques built in the USA in the past two decades are receiving a disproportionate amount of their funds not only from the Saudis, but also the UAE, Qatar and Iran -- all problematic Islamists activist nations. The government just discontinued work on a major Iranian-funded mosque and center in New York City, which had operated under the radar since the days of the good old Shah of Iran under the auspices of the Pahlavi Foundation, and has beenowned since 1979 by the Mullahs of Iran.

The context here is that 15 of the 19 perpetrators of the attacks -- on the very site where this new mosque shall rise -- came from Saudi Arabia.

We saw how, in the case of Major Nidal Hasan of Ft. Hood, it turned out that three of the original participants in 9/11 had listened to the same preacher Major Hasan listened to: a man with a radical violent Islamic website now operating out of Yemen to radicalize American Muslims. In such a context,knowing more about the Imam overseeing a potential multimillion mosque at the World Trade Center site is essential to the story. Nearly 3,000 people were deliberately killed there – and the New York Times is papering over what is about to be built on the site in a nice, beatific pseudo-profile of the Imamoverseeing the mosque? Limiting access to this Imam to some nice quotes, showing him nattily dressed in a suit, and describing him merely as a Sufi, is vacuous, crafted and couched in public relations spin to obscure rather than explain. ‘’What happened that day was not Islam’’ is all that the Times quotes the Imam saying -- a rather lame comment given the enormity of his ambition and the iconic status of where he wants to put his mosque.

The mayor’s office should tell us more.

Just as importantly, who Is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf ? And what is his background? Given that much Islamist radicalism originated in mosques at the hands of imams in virtually all the terrorist attacks inAmerica and Europe -- as we found over and over again – the omission of this information is a glaring mishap.

All we get learn about the Imam in the Times story about him is some anodyne, rather anemic, focus on a man of peace. No real searching. Mayor Bloomberg’s folks need to tell us what are the Imam’s origins, where he was schooled, whether he is an immigrant, a visitor, of which country is he a citizen, and what is his philosophy, among other relevant questions.

It needs to be destroyed before it even goes up. This is an abomination! They are going out of their way to slap us in the face again. Who could have been so inhuman as to sell them that property? The address is 45 Park Place which is 2 blocks north of Ground Zero.

This is an in-your-face disgusting move by the Muzzies and once again shows why you can’t trust any of them because it is impossible to tell the good from the evil.

This must not go forward. And why is this puke in our country, anyway?

Some comments from the "Imam":

"Imam Feisal said it was Christians who started mass attacks on civilians.

"The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians. But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets."

"He said there was an endless supply of angry young Muslim rebels prepared to die for their cause and there was no sign of the attacks ending unless there was a fundamental change in the world.

"Imam Feisal said there could be little progress until the US acknowledged backing dictators and the US President gave an "America Culpa" speech to the Muslim world.

Jihad Maneuvers Taught At New York Compound: "How to slit throats"



The video shows women marching in military formation, scaling walls, engaging in hand-to-hand combat and also reveals a Muslim confirming that the organization's own census revealed that Muslims are a majority in the United States and they are claiming it as their own.

The speaker states, "We are 100 percent sure that Muslims are the majority in America."
He continues, "Our Islamic political party has based its manifesto on this fact. We want to declare once and for all that America is our country."
According to CAN, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2005 warned about Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani-based organization that "had the capacity to attack" America.
The U.S. State Department's 1998 "Patterns of Global Terrorism" report notes the organization "seeks to purify Islam through violence."
The report continued, "Members have purchased isolated rural compounds in North America to live communally, practice their faith and insulate themselves from Western culture. Fuqra members have attacked a variety of targets that they view as enemies of Islam."



'Chilling' new video: How to slit throats

Jihad maneuvers taught at New York compound

wnd

A new video released by the Christian Action Network shows Muslim women at a compound in New York state practicing throat-slitting techniques and assault weapons attacks.

The video was distributed by the makers of the movie "Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.," which documents how a jihadist group has developed dozens of training camps across the nation.

WND reported at the time how Jamaat ul-Fuqra has built 35 compounds – mostly in the northeastern corridor of the U.S.

Now the organization has posted on YouTube a "chilling" training video provided to CAN by an unnamed law enforcement source about the Muslims of America headquarters in Hancock, New York.

Muslims of America reportedly is the name Jamaat ul-Fuqra, believed to have been involved in the beheading of reporter Daniel Pearl, uses in the U.S.

The video includes segments of training exercises in which one person appears to practice a maneuver that would slit the throat of a victim. There are episodes of what appears to be automatic weapons fire at a target and incidents in which a handgun is held point-blank at a "victim's" head: ( see video above)

CAN, led by Martin Mawyer, has researched Muslims of America for years and has provided its video to the FBI, State Department and Homeland Security.

To date, there has been no response from the government, the group said.

Mawyer told WND the political correctness America has adopted ultimately will be costly.

The hands of law enforcement and investigators are tied at this point, he said, because members of the organization are part of "a minority religion," "they are African-American" "and in this particular case, are women."

"Gilani has stated he is preparing his members to the Soldiers of Allah, and he's set up the most advanced guerrilla warfare training camps," he said. "He's being true to his word.

"If the evidence is right in front of our face and we have the words from the leader," Mawyer said. "I don't know how we continue to close our eyes and be blinded by such obvious affront to American values, the Constitution and our way of life."

The organization's "Homegrown Jihad" video includes a chilling scene of Jamaat ul-Fuqra's leader Sheikh Mubarak Gilani telling followers to "act like you're his friend. Then kill him."

According to the Religion of Peace website, there have been more than 250 jihad attacks by Muslims around the globe – including two inside the U.S. – in just the last two months.

The death toll from the attacks has surpassed 1,400, the report says.

If the government permits this to go on as freedom of religion, we are casting our pearls before the swine.

Maybe it is time for Americans to train how to counteract such training so it can not be successful.

Could you imagine if a couple hundred armed American loving Patriots meet to train at some lodge a couple of times a month Then the MSM would be all over it.

And how many multiple BILLION$ are we throwing at the Dept. of Homeland Security to keep us unsafe? Meanwhile little grandmas get frisked at the nations airports.


Janet Napolitano chooses instead to go after Sheriff Joe in Arizona. If someone sent her the video, no doubt she'd investigate the sender and not what is being done in NY by the future throat slitters. There are Muslims working in Homeland Security who no doubt have a say in such things.

Poll after poll I've seen show people have little confidence in national security for our nation with this administration.

The Islamo-nazis are suing to purchase a 224 acre farm in the little town of Walkersville, MD to build a mosque and a meeting facility. So far the courts have upheld the town's decision to deny the purchase. I wonder what effect the muezzin racket will have on the surrounding dairy farms?

The terrorist traning camp..I mean religious meeting facility..just happens to be within a stone's throw of Fort Detrick (repository of all US Army weapons biological and nasty) and Camp David - Obama's weekend crib. I guess B. Hussein'll be able run down to Walkersville for prayer when the Mahmuds win their lawsuit.

Obama's Bid to Move Gitmo to Illinois Triggers GOP Backlash


Obama's Bid to Move Gitmo to Illinois Triggers GOP Backlash

Obama's decision to overhaul a state prison in northwest Illinois to house up to 100 detainees from the Guantanamo Bay prison is drawing heavy fire from Republican congressmen who warn the move poses a serious threat to national security.

One major concern: The administration's bid to move high-risk prisoners onto U.S. soil comes amidst a rash of plots by home-grown terrorists to sow mayhem, including jihadist bombings and suicide attacks both domestically and abroad. Rep. Mark Steven Kirk, R-Ill., has warned the president's plan to create a "supermax" style facility to incarcerate terrorists at Thomson Correctional Center would create an inviting target for future attacks, making Illinois "ground zero for Jihadist terrorist plots, recruitment, and radicalization."
GOP leaders point out that Chicago lies just 150 miles to the west. The Windy City boasts two prime targets for terrorists bent on sending a symbolic message: One of the nation's busiest airports, O'Hare International, and the country's tallest skyscraper, Sears Tower. In remarks on the House floor Monday, Kirk also stated the proposed facility "is only 22 miles from a nuclear reactor."
"That's the thing that just comes and hits you right across the head," Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Newsmax on Tuesday afternoon. "Wow, we've just had Fort Hood, we've had all kinds of hints at home-ground terrorism and people [being] radicalized, we're about to get a briefing on the five people who went to Pakistan. We're providing if anything a radicalization tool for homegrown terrorism by moving [9/11 mastermind] KSM to New York and by moving Gitmo to Thomson, Illinois. There's a total disconnect here with what is going on."

Democrats counter there has never been a successful prison break from a "supermax" maximum-security federal prison. The Thomson Correctional Center, which currently holds only a few hundred minimum-security inmates, will be extensively upgraded to enhance security. Moreover, the administration contends that doing away with the prison at Guantanamo Bay will ultimately remove a stain on America's reputation that al-Qaida used in its efforts to recruit new terrorists.

On Tuesday, a dozen members of the House's GOP caucus held a news conference to explain why they view the development as a threat to national security. Because the administration proposes to renovate the facility to accommodate both federal inmates as well as terrorist detainees, one grave concern is that jihadists could radicalize the general inmate population, thereby recruiting hardened criminals into the jihadist struggle. Democrats tried to head off that issue Tuesday, promising that the detainees will only be permitted to speak with their attorneys. Also, a court room will be constructed at the site so that military tribunals can be held within prison grounds, limiting the need to transfer inmates outside the facility to serious medical issues requiring surgery, or for civil judicial proceedings when those occur.

Hoekstra says, however, that such limits on detainees' rights are certain to be tested in the courts, however, once the terror suspects step foot on U.S. soil.


"You will get all types of lawsuits coming out: These people have been held indefinitely, they will not have had a right to a speedy trial, they were not Mirandized," Hoekstra says. "You're going to get hundreds of lawsuits filed as soon as these people set foot on U.S. soil … hundreds of lawsuits on their behalf.

"Then the courts will decide No. 1 whether they will continue to be detained, how long, who they can talk to, that kinds of thing. It will not be [U.S. Attorney General] Eric Holder, it will not be the Federal Bureau of Prisons. It will be the U.S. court system," he says.
House Republicans cite a Congressional Research Service finding that "non-citizens held in the United States may be entitled to more protections under the Constitution than those detained abroad."
Hoekstra says the emphasis on closing down Guantanamo's prison, even at the cost of moving the detainees to a U.S. prison, suggests the Obama administration has failed to learn the most important lesson from the 9/11 attacks
:
That the jihadist terror threat must be viewed as a national security rather than law enforcement issue, in order to stave off future attacks.
He adds that the administration has been reluctant to share information on terrorism cases for fear of disrupting their ongoing investigations.
"You hear this and say, 'Excuse me folks, this is all about homegrown terrorism and what we need to do to identify and stop it. It's much more serious than just potentially prosecuting somebody.' But they've very much taken a criminal approach," Hoekstra says of the administration. "[It's] a law enforcement approach to dealing with terrorism … and I think it's weakened our effort, yes."
Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, reportedly went so far as to say the administration "must've forgotten" about the Americans who died in the terror attacks on 9/11. "I think the administration wasn't around for 9/11," Boehner said, according to a Politico.com.

That remark provoked a sharp response from Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, who along with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn discussed the sale of the Thomson facility with administration officials at the White House before speaking to the media.

"Would he say the same thing about President Bush's call to close Guantanamo?" Durbin shot back when asked to comment on Boehner's remark. "Would he say the same thing about [Defense] Secretary [Robert] Gates, who served under both administrations, that they somehow forgot 9/11? That is an unfair statement. We will never forget 9/11. And we will make certain that the people who are responsible for it are held accountable, either through military tribunals or through the courts of our land."

In the waning months of his presidency, former President George W. Bush expressed that he wished the controversial Guantanamo prison could be done away with. He did not propose bringing jihad suspects to the United States, however.

The administration's effort to fulfill President Obama's January executive order directing that Guantanamo's prison be closed has run into several complications. Some countries have refused to repatriate detainees. Others, such as Yemen, have developed a well earned reputation for letting even the most hardened jihadists back out on the streets as soon as they return to their native land.

Initially, the administration looked into the possibility of transferring the terrorism suspects to the Fort Leavenworth prison facility in Kansas. Then-Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who later accepted Obama's invitation to serve as his Secretary of Health and Human Services, opposed the move. She wrote the administration a letter saying the facility "lacks the capability to host any number of Gitmo detainees."

Another proposal was to house the inmates in a Michigan facility. That encountered strong resistance from citizens there who opposed the move.

The choice of Thomson apparently stems from the dire economic circumstances facing the town, whose population has dropped below 500 persons. The state prison cost $145 million to build, but has never held more than a few hundred inmates since it opened in 2001.

Desperate for the more than 3,000 jobs that the facility is expected to bring, the town's officials offered to go along with a state plan to sell the underused state prison facility there to the federal government. The administration says more than 30 community and business organizations supported converting the prison into a home for Guantanamo's detainees.

Support for the administration's plan is far from universal in the Land of Lincoln, however.

In November, Rep. Melissa Bean, D-Ill., remarked: "I remain opposed to transferring Guantanamo detainees to Illinois, or anywhere in the United States, while awaiting more detailed information on what's being proposed, including potential security threats and plans for resolving detainees' final status. As of yet, I have seen neither."

On Friday, a Rasmussen Reports poll showed that Illinois voters opposed bringing Guantanamo terror suspects to their state by a 51 percent to 38 percent margin.

What issue is Obama listening to the American people????? ....NONE!

This man is a total monster! What “We the People” think or want.... no longer matters. The “Will of the People” is being ignored and thrown out with our constitution.

Via Obama Executive Order 13492 ~A Memo Stating GITMO Terrorists Will Be Sent To Illinois






By Warner Todd Huston

( Warner Todd Huston is a Chicago based freelance writer )


BigGovernment.com has published a Department of Justice Memo that authorizes the Obama Administration to send terrorists into Illinois!

Via Obama Executive Order 13492, terrorists WILL BE SENT to Illinois

Here is the text of that memo

Thursday, December 10, 2009
MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL



SUBJECT: Directing Certain Actions with Respect to Acquisition and Use of Thomson Correctional Center


By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including by article II, section 2, clause 1 of the Constitution, which designates the President as Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and by the Authorization for Use of Military Force, Public Law 107-40, 115 Stat. 224, I hereby direct that the following actions be taken with respect to the facility known as the Thomson Correctional Center (TCC) in Thomson, Illinois:

1. The Secretary of Defense shall relocate detainees currently held at the Guantanamo Detention Facility to the TCC as expeditiously as possible, to the extent permitted by laws related to Guantanamo detainees, and consistent with the findings in, and interagency Review established by, Executive Order 13492 of January 22, 2009.


2. The Attorney General shall as expeditiously as possible acquire and activate the TCC as a United States Penitentiary, which the Attorney General has determined would alleviate the Bureau of Prisons’ shortage of maximum security cell space and could be used for other appropriate purposes. The Attorney General shall also provide to the Department of Defense a sufficient portion of the TCC to serve as a detention facility to be operated by the Department of Defense, to accommodate the relocation of detainees by the Secretary of Defense in accordance with paragraph 1 of this memorandum. This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity, by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

The Secretary of Defense is authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

So, what happened to all those Illinois lawmakers that were talking about having state hearings, discussions, and debates on the efficacy of this state exposing its citizens to terrorists? What happened to state officials having a word on the matter? Or is accidental Governor Pat Quinn and his pal President Obama simply going to decide to put these dangerous killers amongst us no matter what we have to say about it?

All questions that we apparently aren’t going to even be allowed to ask!



Draft Administration Memo Gives Instructions on Transferring Guantanamo Detainees to Illinois Prison


Political Punch...Jake Tapper

December 11, 2009 8:06 PM

A leaked memo posted online today says the Obama administration is planning to transfer suspected terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to an Illinois prison, but an administration official said tonight that the document was only a draft.

The memo, which first appeared on the Web site biggovernment.com, lays out instructions for the Department of Defense and Department of Justice for the transfer of detainees to the Thomson Correctional Center (TCC), a prison complex 150 miles from Chicago.

An Obama administration official did not dispute the legitimacy of the memo but emphasized it is only a draft.

“This is a draft, predecisional document that lawyers at various agencies were drafting in preparation for a potential future announcement about where to house GTMO detainees,” the administration official said. “Drafts of official documents are often prepared for any and all possibilities, regardless of whether a decision has been made about the policy or if the document will be used.”




Obama’s Weekly Friday Night Bad News Dump: Transfer Gitmo Detainees to Illinois


Saturday, December 12, 2009

by Andy McCarthy


Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government site breaks the news — in the form of a memo, dated Thursday, from President Obama to Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Attorney General Eric Holder* — directing that the terrorists being detained at Guantanamo Bay be transferred to a prison in Thomson, Illinois (the Thomson Correctional Center).

It’s an outrage. It will inevitably result in trained terrorists being released in the United States — bank on it. More to come on this.

Andrew’s site describes the document as “a leaked DOJ memo” from Holder to Gates. But, assuming it is authentic, it is clearly a memo from Obama to Holder and Gates — the constitutional powers relied on are those of the president, not the attorney general, and the memo gives directions to both Holder and Gates. (Holder has no power to order Gates to do anything — they are peers, and the Constitution vests all the executive power in the president, not members of the president’s cabinet.)

Obama should join them! We could try him for treason while he’s there!

The people of Illinois are just going to love it when the terrorists "friends" start showing up nearby.


Obama brazenly sells out the lives and safety of American citizens.

Army Charges Ft. Hood Shooting Suspect...BUT They Want Mental Exam First




Army Charges Fort Hood Shooting Suspect With 32 Counts of Attempted Murder

FOX News

FORT WORTH, Texas

An Army psychiatrist who may face the death penalty after the mass shooting at Fort Hood was charged Wednesday with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder relating to the scores of soldiers and two civilian police officers injured in the attack, military officials said.


Maj. Nidal Hasan has already been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder after the Nov. 5 shooting in a building at the Texas Army post where soldiers must go before being deployed. Witnesses said he jumped on a desk and shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — Arabic for "God is great!" Army officials have said he was armed with two pistols, one a semiautomatic capable of firing up to 20 rounds without reloading.

The additional charges come less than 24 hours after Hasan's civilian attorney was notified that the Army plans to evaluate Hasan to test his competency to stand trial as well as his mental state at the time of the shooting.

John Galligan, Hasan's attorney, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Army officials had not returned his calls so he did not know when or where the "mental responsibility" exam would take place. Galligan said he had filed an objection to the evaluation pointing out that Hasan was still in intensive care at a San Antonio military hospital recovering from gunshot wounds that left him paralyzed.

"I'm incensed at the way the military is handling this, serving additional charges on my client when he's in the hospital and defense attorneys are not present," Galligan told The AP by phone from his office near Fort Hood, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Worth. "And nobody will tell me what the plans are for the evaluation."

Authorities have received a request from Hasan's superior for a mental exam but have not yet ordered it, said Chris Haug, a Fort Hood spokesman.

The results of the mental evaluation could prevent Hasan from being sent to death row or even being tried at all, although those scenarios are unlikely, experts say.
The exam is done by a board of mental health professionals to determine whether the suspect had a severe mental illness at the time of the crime; if so, his or her clinical psychological diagnosis; whether that prevented him from knowing at the time that his alleged actions were wrong; and if he is competent to stand trial, according to military law.
If the board decides Hasan is not competent to stand trial, he would be hospitalized until he is found competent, Stevens said.
If it deems that Hasan had a severe mental illness but did not lack mental responsibility at the time of the crime, the military must decide whether to proceed with the case or drop the charges and have Hasan discharged from the Army based on his mental illness, Stevens said.
Prosecutors likely would dismiss the case if the board determined that Hasan lacked mental responsibility, because in a trial they would be faced with trying to discredit their own military health professionals, Stevens said.
If the case goes to trial, his defense attorneys can still use the insanity defense, which is rare, Stevens said.
"He wouldn't remain in a military facility at that point because he would have been found not guilty, so the issue now is his mental state," Stevens said.
If a military jury were to acquit Hasan based on the insanity defense, he would be committed to a medical facility and evaluated to see if he poses a danger to society, Stevens said.
Then at a post-trial hearing, if the exam results revealed that he posed no danger, he could be released back to his Army unit, Stevens said. But the Army likely would have him discharged based on his mental illness and then he would be in the U.S. attorney general's custody, which would also happen if he was deemed a threat, Stevens said.

The attorney general usually asks the state to take over and place him in a mental facility, according to military law. If the state refuses, the attorney general would have him confined to a federal facility.

It's unclear if such a defendant would ever be released, but his case likely would be governed by the rules of the state or federal system on involuntary commitments.

Authorities have not said if they plan to seek the death penalty. If they do, and Hasan is convicted and receives that punishment, he would be sent to death row at the military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kan.


Attorney John Galligan represents suspected Fort Hood killer Maj. Nidal Hasan

Army wants mental exam to determine if suspected Fort Hood killer Nidal Hasan is fit to stand trial

FORT WORTH, Texas

The military plans a mental evaluation to determine whether the Army psychiatrist charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood knew his alleged actions were wrong and whether he's competent to stand trial, his civilian attorney said Tuesday.

Attorney John Galligan said he received notice Tuesday night from Maj. Nidal Hasan's captain that the military likely will issue a "mental responsibility exam" order Wednesday. The notice did not indicate when or where the exam, which is done by what the military calls a sanity board, will take place, Galligan said.
"Given the magnitude and seriousness of the crimes alleged ... such alleged conduct makes me believe ... that the accused lacks mental responsibility and capacity," Capt. J. Huber wrote in the notice sent to Galligan.

Wild Thing's comment........

I sure as heck do not like all these IF's!

They better start asap using the word terrorist and Muslim when they speak about Nidal Hasan, because that is exactly what he is.

He should also be charged with treason.


They STILL will not call this person a terrorist.GRRRRRRR And now we have to hear about how these terrorists might get off if they flunk a mental exam. My guess is it would be very easy to do an acting job and play a nut case. Heck just sit there and talk to yourself and answer and pretend to hear voices. Jerk your head around a little not unlike Obama in his speechs. And there would be tons of physical things a person could do too., rock back and forth, keep looking over your shoulder, so many things.

What happened to learning about the enemy?? Don't they even try to learn what Islam is about and the agenda for the entire world??? It is all over the internet, books and radio. Sheesh!

PC has drawn a line in the sand and the time of the world before PC had some sanity. The side of the line after PC has taken over is totally out of control.

I have to wonder if this terrorists had gone into Congress and killed all the democrats if they still would call him a suspect and say maybe he needs a mental exam. Or would they FINALLY call him a terrorist! Just asking.

Terrorist Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani Asks Judge to Dismiss Case



Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani contends that he was denied his constitutional right to a speedy trial.


Terrorism Suspect Asks Judge to Dismiss Case

NY Times


Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani contends that he was denied his constitutional right to a speedy trial.

Lawyers for a terrorism suspect once held at Guantánamo Bay who is now facing prosecution in Manhattan asked a judge on Tuesday to dismiss his case on the ground that his nearly five years in detention denied him his constitutional right to a speedy trial.

The terrorism suspect, Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, was captured in Pakistan in 2004, held for two years in secret prisons run by the C.I.A., and then moved in 2006 to the naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. During his detention, he says, he was subjected to cruel interrogation techniques and denied a lawyer.

Although Ghailani faces charges stemming from a terrorist act that predated the Sept. 11 attacks, his speedy trial motion could foreshadow issues that could arise in the prosecution of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the professed organizer of the 9/11 plot, and four other Guantánamo detainees who were recently ordered sent to New York for trial.


“We respectfully submit that this case presents possibly the most unique and egregious example of a speedy trial violation in American jurisprudence to date,” Mr. Ghailani’s lawyers said in a motion that was heavily censored because of its reliance on classified information.

The motion was originally filed several weeks ago with Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, but it was kept almost entirely under seal pending a review by the government. The new version, with many pages blacked out, was made public on Tuesday.

“This motion asks one primary question,” the lawyers, Peter E. Quijano, Michael K. Bachrach and Gregory Cooper, wrote. “Can national security trump an indicted defendant’s constitutional Right to a Speedy Trial? We respectfully submit that the answer is emphatically and without qualification, ‘No.’ ”

Mr. Ghailani, a Tanzanian who is believed to be in his mid-30s, has pleaded not guilty. He has been charged with conspiring to help carry out Al Qaeda’s 1998 bombings of the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, attacks that killed 224 people. The military has also said that he later served as a cook and a bodyguard for Osama bin Laden.

A spokeswoman for the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan had no comment on the filing.



Wild Thing's comment........

But now that Obama has opened this can of worms, the same will most likely apply to all terrorists held since President Bush including KSM in New York City.

Constitutional rights are for CITIZENS.

These trials and the one in New York for 9-11 are all Obama and his agenda to undermine the security of the United States, give information to weaken our intelligence gathering efforts and put Bush / Cheney on trial for all the liberals to despise and pump up his base. This is an orchestrated mess to make Bush look bad so the liberals don’t concentrate on what Obama is doing. Just keep their hatred up for Bush.

It has NOTHING to do with justice. Justice would be putting this guy in a burning building with no way out as he did to so many Americans in that embassy.

In Only A Few Weeks Another Obama Gitmo Official Resigns





Another Obama Gitmo Official Resigns: Who is Accountable Now?

Big Government

by Warner Todd Huston


Earlier this month Obama fired Greg Craig, his main counsel on matters concerning the Guantanamo Bay Facility. And this week Obama sheds another one of his GITMO team with the resignation of Deputy Assistant Secretary for Defense for Detainee Policy, Phillip Carter.

It appears that Obama’s GITMO team is being systematically eliminated. One has to ask, why? The only real answer has to be that Obama is setting up some plausible deniability by firing or forcing the resignation of officials involved with GITMO policy. Once enough of these people are gone, Obama can look wide-eyed to the public and claim that he was badly served by his GITMO advisers and, therefore, it isn’t his fault.

Unfortunately for Obama the failure is not with the staff but with the chief himself, Obama.


Obama has allowed Attny Gen. Holder to reveal his utter ignorance by pushing for civilian trials of some GITMO detainees while at the same time arbitrarily denying such a privilege to others. Obama has also backed this plan despite that there is no precedent in American history for such trials.

And now the officials in charge of these decisions are being let go with no replacements announced, leaving mounting questions about just what the administrations policies are and who is responsible for carrying them out.

With Carter so unexpectedly gone, many questions remain unanswered about Obama’s detainee policy. Now, there is no one to answer these questions. By what legal authority does the administration hold some 75 detainees without civilian trials? On the other hand, what is the legal authority that some are getting civilian trials? How will these detainees that are getting civilian trials be secured and where?

In any case, it seems pretty obvious that Obama is getting rid of as many people on his GITMO policy team as possible so that he can claim that his failures are not his fault but are the failures of the departing team members. But will the American people buy this deception?


Wild Thing's comment............

His “my dog ate my homework” excuses for personal and policy failures are so transparent .

This whole mess is coming right from the top....OBAMA. He can fire all the officials he wants over this, and blow all the smokescreens and make all the excuses he wants. He owns this stupid decision. He'll look like a fool trying to blame someone else.


The opinion speculated about in th ewrite up is they were fired, that might be true, even if the indivuduals gave some other reason. It has to do with Obama and those he picked earlier after all I would not trust any of them.

Greg Craig resigned Nov. 13 and now the second one Cater.

With Obama As President ~ Americans Expect Islamic Terror Strike Within 6 Months




Americans expect Islamic terror strike within 6 months

Survey shows 65% confirm attack somewhat or very likely


wnd

Two-thirds of Americans expect an Islamic suicide bomb attack on American soil within six months, according to a new poll that also shows Republicans are significantly more concerned than Democrats.

Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies said one of the most shocking findings of his recent polling on the subject was that 65 percent are expecting an attack within six months.

"Some of the communication between Fort Hood shooter Hasan and al-Qaida figures included discussion of such attacks inside the United States, and it has been a common form of violence in the Middle East for years," he said. "Now, Americans appear resigned to the fact that these attacks will soon come to our shores."

He asked a series of questions in a WorldNetDaily/Wenzel Strategies survey regarding the recent Fort Hood attack, allegedly carried out by Muslim Maj. Nidal Hasan. The survey, Nov. 13-16, used an automated telephone technology calling a random sampling of listed telephone numbers nationwide. The survey has 95 percent confidence interval. It included 806 adult respondents and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.

"More than one-third of respondents – 36 percent – said they think it is 'very likely' that such an attack will take place in the next six months, while another 29 percent said it is 'somewhat likely,'" he reported.


Wenzel said there is "a huge partisan split on this, as 84 percent of Republicans said they think it is likely … while just 47 percent of Democrats felt the same way."

The survey also revealed a plurality of Americans believe the Fort Hood attack was an act of Islamic terrorism.

The survey asked: "Do you think that the killings at Fort Hood were an act of terrorism by a calculated Islamic terrorist or an act of a mentally deranged man?"

Forty-nine percent identified the deaths of 13 adults and one unborn child and the dozens more injured as Islamic terrorism, including 65 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of Democrats. More than half of the independents agreed with the GOP.

About one-third of the respondents said the attack was the act of a deranged man.

The survey also asked what Americans believe should be done with the estimated 15,000 Muslims in the U.S. military following the attack. Forty-eight percent said the military needs to do much better – and more – screening of Muslims. The military also should follow up on potential threats, they agreed.

"This is a reasonable response, given that the shooter had reportedly reached out to al-Qaida figures in a string of e-mail communications and had contact with radical imams before the shootings, and that military leaders were apparently aware of his communications but did nothing," Wenzel's analysis concluded.
"That just 14 percent said Muslims should be expelled from the U.S. military shows some tolerance and a trust that Army leaders probably know the right action to take in such situations, but that they somehow failed to take proper action," he wrote.

Another 11 percent said Muslims serving in the U.S. military should be allowed to claim status as conscientious objectors to avoid deployment to war zones when the U.S. is fighting against Islamic enemies.

"Democrats were twice as likely as Republicans to say that the military should respond to the shootings by instituting widespread Muslim sensitivity training, but even at that, just 11 percent of Democrats thought that was the best response," Wenzel said.

However, only 9 percent of Americans believe the terror attack will result in the end of political correctness in the military, despite "strong evidence" it contributed significantly. Other respondents were divided over the question.

"This probably reflects a doubt that the wave of political correctness that has washed over U.S. institutions can be reversed by one incident, heinous as it was. Even after the attacks of September 11, 2001, there was a pocket of resistance to some reforms, including the Patriot Act, designed to better protect Americans, but the Hasan shootings were an utterly predictable disaster waiting to happen, and the fact that so few think action can be taken to prevent repeated attacks in the future is disappointing and shows a recognition that our societal structures are growing ever weaker," Wenzel noted.

Fifty-five percent of the respondents blamed Hasan for the massacre; with 10 percent blaming President Obama, 13 percent Army leaders, 13 percent Islam and another 9 percent unsure.




Wild Thing's comment.........

The title could easily read........Americans expect follow up to Ft Hood Islamic terror strike within 6 months

Regarding the terrorist attack at Fort Hood were lectured not to judge the terrorist! Obama made NO ONE feel secure, if anything, we now see we are on our own. If the MILITARY can’t be safe, we are sitting ducks.

I think those who foolishly thought that electing a ‘former’ muslim who would sweet talk the other muslims into loving us and not wanting to kill us are starting to wake up.

Obama and his administration has sent a message to the death cult world that it is willing to submit to them, and that they are welcome.

Sen. Joe Lieberman At Senate Probing Fort Hood Shooting Questions Need To Be Answered





Senate Probing Fort Hood Shooting


Sen. Joe Lieberman today at the first Senate hearing on the Fort Hood Terror Attack laying out some of the key questions that need to be answered.

Lieberman said there needs to be a thorough investigation on what was known by officials in the Army, the Department of Defense, and elsewhere about Nidal Malik Hasan's radical beliefs and tendencies. Lieberman seems determined to see that this is not just swept under the rug.



Lieberman may subpoena officials over shooting spree at Fort Hood


The Hill


Sen. Joe Lieberman said Wednesday he would hold a hearing this week on the Fort Hood shooting and may use his subpoena power to force government officials to testify.

The chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee is moving ahead with the Thursday hearing despite the Obama administration’s request to delay congressional inquiries until the federal investigation is complete.

Sen. Lieberman (I-Conn.) said he feels compelled to probe the Nov. 5 shootings that killed 13 people at the Texas army base. Lieberman and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the committee’s ranking Republican, said they want answers to why the Army failed to identify potential signs that might have prevented the crimes. The committee has repeatedly held similar hearings in the past without jeopardizing criminal investigations, the two lawmakers said.

An Army major, Nidal Malik Hasan, has been charged with 13 counts of murder in the Nov. 5 incident. President Barack Obama has asked for a report by Nov. 30 after it was revealed that a federal joint task force had scrutinized Hasan in December 2008.

Lieberman did not mention issuing subpoenas to compel government witnesses, but told The Hill afterwards that he won’t rule it out.

“I hope we don’t get to that,” he said. “It’s a power that it’s important that we have, but you never want to have to use it. I’m just assuming we’re going to work out a cooperative understanding with the administration.
“Basically what we’re looking for is access to people involved in this, to interview them as part of our need to understand what happened…. This is a classic legislative-executive moment, and that’s why we’ve got to be very persistent here. And we will be.”

Lieberman’s disagreement with the Obama administration creates an awkward situation for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who allowed Lieberman to keep his chairmanship earlier this year. Democrats had been angry with Lieberman for bucking the party and supporting Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for president last year. This month the Connecticut Independent rankled many members of his former party when he announced he would not support ending debate on the Democratic healthcare bill if it includes a public insurance option, which it does.

Reid spokesman Jim Manley on Wednesday said Reid had no regrets about letting Lieberman keep his gavel.

Army and FBI officials briefed lawmakers on Tuesday on the shootings, hoping to avoid a widening gap between Congress and the White House.

Obama warned Congress on Saturday not to turn the shooting into “political theater,” prompting the Senate Armed Services Committee to cancel a scheduled closed-door hearing with Secretary of the Army John McHugh and Army Chief of Staff George Casey.

Lieberman said he is in ongoing talks with administration officials over a path forward, and insisted several times Wednesday that his committee’s inquiry would look at the system that allowed the crime to occur and not the actual crime. The senator said he did not see a need to interview witnesses of the shootings, for example.

Also Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) sent a letter to the White House to ask that his committee receive a copy of the federal report once it is submitted to Obama on Nov. 30. Leahy’s committee oversees the Justice Department and the FBI, which is assisting the Army in the inquiry.

“Consistent with my responsibilities as the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and my constitutional obligation to conduct rigorous congressional oversight, I request that the results of the internal investigations by the FBI and the Army be transmitted to the Committee on the Judiciary,” Leahy wrote. “I appreciate that the Department of the Army and the FBI are engaged in an ongoing investigation of this case, and I do not wish to interfere with that process.”



Wild Thing's comment.......

I give Joe credit on this one for having kahunas. GOOD for him. Plus it will shame any rino or Republican to take a hard stand too, or it should anyway.


Sadly, as Gen. Casey said the other day....""Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse!"".


I want to start hearing the word, “Traitor” and “Treason” in some of these hearings... There is NO reason I can think of why this man’s actions AREN’T being considered as such! And, the fact that this guy was on OBAMA’s Homeland Security Advisory Panel needs to be investigated thoroughly. How a JIHADIST infiltrated one of the TOP levels of our government (the Executive Branch) needs to be investigated as well...

Obama may SAY this is “playing politics” but he is wrong - WAY WRONG. This is a WAR, and this man is a TRAITOR and he was ADVISING our PRESIDENT ON how to deal with the threat of domestic terrorism, and domestic policy on terrorism itself! Obama is PROTECTING this man — PROTECTING a TRAITOR appointed to an Executive branch panel for God sakes!!! [This really reminds me of Obama defending his friend against the “racist cops”... He is doing everything he can to avoid this man being labeled what he is — and Islamic Jihadist and a TRAITOR!

I’d LOVE to see Obama subpoenaed to find out WHO choose this man to be on that panel, and just how well Obama himself knew this man! Obama really loves hanging with terrorists, doesn’t he???

Obama The Muslim in D.C. Trying to Protect His Muslim Brother Nidal Malik Hasan Held Behind Bars




Following Levin, Reyes Postpones House Intel Committee Briefing on Fort Hood

The Washington Independent

Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) issued the following statement regarding the postponement of a full Committee briefing on information related to the Fort Hood shooting: Here's the full text:

"Due to the high visibility of the issues surrounding the tragic event at Fort Hood, the President has instructed the National Security Council to assume control of all informational briefings. The NSC has directed that the leadership, as well as the chairmen and ranking minority members of the relevant congressional committees receive briefings first.
"I have been told that the Director of National Intelligence is still committed to providing the full membership a briefing on the activities within the jurisdiction of this Committee. I believe that this will occur, and I will push to schedule a briefing before the end of this week."

Just yesterday, Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) postponed the Senate Armed Services Committee’s scheduled briefing on Fort Hood in accordance with President Obama’s request for Congress to await the results of military and law enforcement inquiries.



Fort Hood attack likely Islamist terrorism, Cornyn and Lieberman say

Star Telegram

Senator Cornyn joins Senator Lieberman in calling Ft. Hood attack terrorism.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas is joining Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., in publicly declaring that the attack on Fort Hood is likely an act of Islamist terrorism.

Cornyn wrote a letter to President Barack Obama today urging the White House not to let "political correctness" get in the way of investigating the Nov. 5 massacre that left 13 people dead and more than 30 wounded. "As more and more facts surrounding the Fort Hood attack surface, it looks increasingly probable that the alleged attacker, Major Nidal Hasan, heeded these terrorist calls to violence, compelled by a fanatical religious ideology. If Islamist terrorism was the driving force behind the senseless violence at Fort Hood, as it seems to be, this attack must serve as a call to action for the federal government," Cornyn wrote.
"Evidence indicating that terrorist activity may be in the offing must always be run to ground; federal agencies must follow every lead and look into every possible threat, regardless of whose particular sensitivities might be offended in the process," he continued.
"We must never allow the safety of those who defend our freedom to be made a secondary priority to political correctness."


~ snipet ~

Lieberman’s committee is planning a hearing on the Fort Hood mass shooting on Thursday. His repeated assertions that the attack by accused gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is likely an act of terrorism has been repeatedly criticized by Democrats.


White House won't provide witnesses for Fort Hood hearing

The Washington Post

Obama stonewalls. Lieberman rebuffed.: White House won't provide witnesses for Ft Hood hearing.

The first public congressional hearing on the Fort Hood attack will not include testimony from any current federal law enforcement, military or intelligence officials because the Obama administration "declined to provide any" such witnesses, according to a Senate committee source.

But the list does not include anyone actively involved in investigating the Fort Hood attack, or anyone who might have been responsible for decisions made by various government agencies before the attack about whether to investigate the shooting suspect, Nidal Hasan. The Senate committee source said HSGAC Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) had hoped to have witnesses from the FBI and the U.S. Army, but was rebuffed in his requests.

Separately, a closed-door Senate Armed Services Committee briefing on the status of the Fort Hood investigation has been postponed, after initially being scheduled for Monday afternoon.



Army chief forming panel to examine career of Ft. Hood Terrorist

Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the Army's chief of staff, is forming a panel to look closely at the military career of Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the man accused in the Ft Hood shootings and probe whether warning signs were missed, a senior Army official said Monday.

Council for American-Islamic Relations national communications director Ibrahim Hooper said Sunday that the U.S. still isn't clear if the shootings at Fort Hood were an act of terrorism.

"To call it an act of terror is to jump to conclusions, to rush to judgment," Hooper said in an appearance on TV One’s "Washington Watch."
"Why can't the killer at Fort Hood just be a crazy guy? Don't take it out on American Muslims because you're upset about another issue," he said in response to questions the shooting has raised about American Muslims in the U.S. Army.
Appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani offered such a judgment, saying the Obama administration has been “very slow to react to the whole situation with Major Hasan, which was clearly a terrorist act in the name of Islamic terrorism.”
“I would want to see the facts develop,” Giuliani said. “I think the administration has been very slow to come to the conclusion that Major Hasan was an Islamic extremist terrorist. I mean, the reality is, he announced "Allah akbar" when he shot and killed those people. He was communicating with a cleric who was encouraging terrorism. And now it turns out he has -- he even has business cards saying 'solder of Allah.'"

Wild Thing's comment.......

This move stinks to high heaven! Obama wants to control the spin put on the updates that go out. Hasan was part of Obama's transition team as well. I posted about that before.

Obama and Erick Holder assign the 9/11 plotters to the civilian courts when it was, in his eyes, politically convenient to do so. Then he assigns the Intelligence arm of the government to a crime Obama really doesn't want the world to see as a national security issue.

I feel a sense of utter shock and sadness for our service people who were under this terrorist’s psychiatric care.

And now we are finding out he was pushing to charge his “patients” with war crimes.

Can you imagine??!! Can you imagine working through mental anguish under the wolf terrorist invited in by a PC program of “inclusion”???!!

Can you imagine pledging your life to uphold the Constitution then watch who is elected President and then have a Psychiatrist tell you that what you are trained to do is now a “war crime”.

I hope some guardian angels were watching over the people who were funneled to this evil man. I hope that they could see the devil even in their need for healing and fight off the torture.

Prayers and support for all those who have been horribly damaged by this madness we call “tolerance” and other doubleplusungood terms.

12 Brave Men and Women Needed For Trial of Evil 9/11 Mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed


Charles Krauthammer On Why Terror Trials In Civilian Courts Is A Terrible Idea


.


12 brave men and women needed for trial of evil 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed

BY Elizabeth Hays


NY DAILY NEWS

Wanted: 12 New Yorkers willing to put their lives on hold - and maybe on the line - to try the mastermind behind the biggest crime in U.S. history.

The jury ultimately chosen to hear the case against confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed will face months of heart-wrenching testimony amid air-tight security.

In the 2006 trial of Sept. 11 plotter Zacarias Moussaoui in Virginia, jurors were picked up and dropped off at constantly changing rendezvous spots far from the courthouse and whisked inside as snipers and a wall of blazers stood by.

It was part of an elaborate security system set up to protect the jurors from reprisals or tampering and keep their identities secret, even from the judge.

"To this day I wouldn't be able to tell you who any of the jurors were," said Moussaoui's lawyer, Edward MacMahon, adding that graphic testimony about the thousands of victims killed in the attacks also took a toll on jurors. "I've read that some of the jurors felt it was like going to 10 funerals a day."
Anonymous Juror 526 from the Moussaoui trial, the lone dissenter against the death penalty, wrote afterward that the trial was "emotionally overwhelming."
"Most of us shared in the nightmares described by so many family members," he wrote in a letter posted on the Families of Sept. 11 Web site. He said he and other jurors suffered migraines, anxiety and insomnia. "The centerpiece of our jury room table was a bowl of Tylenol."

Legal experts said it is too soon to know the precise details of Mohammed's trial in Manhattan, which is still months away.

Court officials will certainly go to great lengths to protect jurors' identities.

"If they use anonymity for mid-level coke dealers they're certainly going to use it here," said lawyer Ron Kuby, who defended Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.

Christopher Lofting, 73, jury foreman in the July 2001 trial of convicted terrorist Mokhtar Haouari in Manhattan, said the high-stakes trial will certainly trigger an avalanche of excuses from potential jurors terrified of being picked.

"In my case they had a hell of a time getting together a jury that wanted to play and this was all pre-9/11," he said. "Getting the jury together this time is going to be hell on wheels."

Despite the challenges, experts said the trial will give jurors a chance to be part of history.

"It'll be a front row seat to the largest criminal case in American history," Kuby said. "They will definitely have something to tell their grandchildren about."

Kruathammer Discusses Giving Khalid Shaikh Mohammed Rights of An American Citizen


Kruathammer: Giving KSM (Khalid Shaikh Mohammed ) the rights of an American Citizen is Unconscionable


This is all show and it's gonna be a show trial which the terrorists will conduct against us, against the Bush Adm. and the methods, secondly, it's gonna be the second half of the terror attack, the first half is you attack and you kill, you become notorious and you cause pain and sensation. Then a decade later you appear at the scene of the crime and you have the biggest forum in the world to explain and proclaim the ideology behind it, this is a travesty.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Krauthammer knows his stuff. Nice to see that he’s not taking the politically correct route.

He eviscerates President Obama's and AG Eric Holder's decision to give the terrorists responsible for 9-11 the same rights as American citizens.

“I’m not sure that FDR, or Lincoln, or any of our war presidents, or Johnson, or Kennedy would take a combatant and give him the constitutional rights of an American citizen and give him a trial in civilian court. That doesn’t happen.”

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Proud of His Terrorist Acts



What they make Daniel Pearl say and also KSM’s confession to the kidnap and beheading.



KHALID SHEIKH MOHAMMED, al Qaeda mastermind of 9/11, divulged information –he did ithis only after he had been waterboarded – that allowed the U.S. government to stop a planned terrorist attack on Los Angeles.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed proudly confessed to a U.S. military tribunal that he “decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl,” more than five years after the American reporter’s execution was shown in a video, according to a transcript released by the Pentagon.

President Bush admitted that he personally authorized the waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

He said he personally asked what tools were available to use on him, and sought legal approval for waterboarding him:

Wild Thing's comment......

Thank you President Bush!

This is their way to attack the Bush administration without, they think, getting their hands dirty.

It could jeopardize counterterror programs and thereby endanger Americans. On Fox and Friends Friday morning that said that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other 4 will be on American soil, they get full Constitutional rights. They will whine about how tortured they were..waterboarding, etc.

And in a trial the bad guy is supposed to be judged by their piers.Now how th eheck does this work with these terrorists? Do they bring in Taliban or al-quada to sit in the jury to be his piers? How stupid is that!

Obama Will Send 9-11 Mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and Four Other Gitmo Detainees to NY for Civilian Court




Former New York Homeland Security director reacts to civilian trial for 9/11 suspects


.



Attorney General Eric Holder Press Conference On Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Going On Trial In NY


The Obama Administration will send 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and four other Gitmo detainees to New York to face trial in a civilian court.

WASHINGTON


In the biggest trial for the age of terrorism, the professed 9/11 mastermind and four alleged henchmen will be hauled before a civilian court on American soil, barely a thousand yards from the site of the World Trade Center's twin towers they are accused of destroying.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced the decision Friday to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to trial at a lower Manhattan courthouse.

It's a risky move. Trying the men in civilian court will bar evidence obtained under duress and complicate a case where anything short of slam-dunk convictions will empower President Barack Obama's critics.

Lawyers for the accused will almost certainly try to have charges thrown out based on the rough treatment of the detainees at the hands of U.S. interrogators, including the repeated waterboarding, or simulated drowning, of Mohammed.

"We have a president who doesn't know we're at war," said Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles Burlingame, had been the pilot of the hijacked plane that crashed into the Pentagon. She said she was sickened by "the prospect of these barbarians being turned into victims by their attorneys."

Waterboarding
The New York case may also force the court system to confront a host of difficult legal issues surrounding counter-terrorism programs begun after the 2001 attacks, including the harsh interrogation techniques once used on some of the suspects while in CIA custody. The most severe method — waterboarding, or simulated drowning — was used on Mohammed 183 times in 2003, before the practice was banned.

Madness!!

I remember a member of Al Qaeda saying ‘we will use your system against you’.

Obama is doing just that. How much more evidence do people need this usurper is out to destroy our Republic.

This is going to be a trial of the Bush Administration, the CIA , FBI and our troops too. This will lay our entire intelligence services wide open in discovery.

Fox this morning they said the terrorists can be released on a technicality. Boehner said Americans should fear that is even a possiblity .

I spoke with our nephew that is a firefighter in New York. He lost 11 of his fellow fighters on 9-11 including 2 Chiefs. We knew them too, they came to visit us . He said he and his other firemen are as furious as can be about this like we are.

On our own soil, and will now be tried in a courtroom down the street from the World Trade Center and these terrorists will have civilian court?????? OMG!

In an appearance on Fox News Channel this afternoon, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani said the move was irresponsible.

From NY Post


“It’s not inconceivable that the case could be thrown out,” he said.

Giuliani, who was mayor on 9/11, said he disagrees with Bloomberg.

“These are war criminals. This was an act of war. An act of terror,” he said. “They should be tried in a military tribunal.”

LOOK AT THIS IDIOT!

In a statement, Mayor Bloomberg said he supports the move.

“I support the Obama administration’s decision to prosecute 9/11 terrorists here in New York. It is fitting that 9/11 suspects face justice near the World Trade Center site where so many New Yorkers were murdered,” he said.



Sister of 9/11 victim blasts decision to try confessed 9/11 mastermind in New York City



One week ago, Dems blocked DeMint Amendment to extend ban on GITMO detainees being brought to U.S. soil .

Demint statement on bringing terrorists into American courtrooms:

DeMint senate.gov"This senseless decision puts more Americans at risk for future terrorist attacks and is completely unnecessary. Americans have already invested hundreds of millions of dollars in Guantanamo Bay where these violent radicals can be detained and safely tried by military commissions away from our communities.

Why would our President send terrorist masterminds away from an island fortress off our shores to trials in American courtrooms that will now become targets for enemy combatants? Further, by trying these terrorists in open courts, the same people that murdered thousands of our countrymen will now have access to highly classified intelligence that could further risk our security. The President’s decision is naive and reckless."

Obama To Sign U.S. Defense Bill To Pay " MODERATE " Taliban To Switch Sides



U.S. defense bill would pay "Moderate" Taliban to switch sides


By Susan Cornwell – Tue Oct 27

WASHINGTON

Reuters


The defense bill President Barack Obama will sign into law on Wednesday contains a new provision that would pay Taliban fighters who renounce the insurgency, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin said on Tuesday.

The provision establishes a program in Afghanistan similar to one used in Iraq where former fighters were re-integrated into Iraqi society, Levin told Reuters.

Obama plans to sign the bill authorizing Pentagon operations for fiscal 2010 on Wednesday, the White House said.

Reaching out to moderate Taliban members is part of the Obama administration's plan to turn around the eight-year war in Afghanistan. Levin also has advocated trying to convince Taliban fighters to change sides by luring them with jobs and amnesty for past attacks.

Under the legislation, Afghan fighters who renounce the insurgency would be paid for "mainly protection of their towns and villages," Levin said.

It would be "just like the sons of Iraq," he said, referring to the program used in Iraq which military commanders say helped turn around a failing war.

"You got 90,000 Iraqis who switched sides, and are involved in protecting their hometowns against attack and violence."

The bill authorizes using money from an existing Commanders Emergency Response Program, which U.S. commanders can use for a variety of purposes. It does not set a specific dollar amount for the fighters' re-integration program.

There is $1.3 billion authorized for the fund in fiscal 2010, which began October 1. The money must still be allocated by defense appropriators, who are working to finish the legislation.

OMG

F-U Obama!

When we paid Iraqi's it was NOT paying the terrorists. We gave money as far as I know to the civilians that were Iraqi and NOT the ones one would consider to be Taliban in Iraq. I might be wrong but that was my understanding.

Although the Taliban in Afghanistan is getting stronger , Obama still believes that he is going to reach out to the "moderate" Taliban members.

Afghanistan Taliban Kill UN Staff At Guest House, Hotel ,Presidential Palace Attacked



An Afghan security man, unseen, shows a photo of 'the believed suicide attackers' reportedly killed at the site of an attack on his cell phone to a journalist in Kabul, Afghanistan on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009. Gunmen attacked a guest house used by U.N. staff in the Afghan capital of Kabul early Wednesday, officials said.



Kabul, Afghanistan Taliban Kill UN Staff At Guest House, Hotel And Presidential Palace Attacked Too


.



.




FOX News


Gunmen wearing homicide vests stormed a guest house used by U.N. staff in the heart of the Afghan capital early Wednesday, killing 12 people — including six U.N. staff — officials said. The U.S. Embassy said one of the U.N. dead was American.

A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the early morning attack, saying it was meant as an assault on the upcoming presidential election.

At least 12 people have been killed after Taliban militants armed with automatic weapons and suicide bomb vests stormed a guest house in Kabul.

A rocket was also fired at a foreign-owned luxury Serena Hotel in the Afghan capital, forcing 100 guests into a bunker.

Another rocket struck the "outer limit" of the presidential palace but caused no casualties, presidential spokesman Humayun Hamidzada said.

A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the raid on the guest house, saying it was spurred by the nation's upcoming presidential election.

Injured man carried from guest house

Afghan police and United Nations officials said the 12 fatalities included six UN staff members, three attackers, two security guards and an Afghan civilian.

UN spokesman Adrian Edwards said nine other UN employees were injured in the assault, which began about dawn in the Shar-e-Naw area of the city.

Afghan forces had exchanged gunfire for hours with militants inside the building before explosives were apparently detonated, police said.

Terrified guests scurried from the building, some screaming for help and others jumping from upper floors, as flames engulfed part of the three-story building.

Smoke after the guest house assault

President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack as "an inhuman act" and called on the army and police to strengthen security around all international institutions.

The rocket at the Serena Hotel failed to explode but filled the lobby with smoke, forcing guests and employees to flee to the basement, according to an Afghan witness.

Efforts to stabilise Afghanistan have been complicated by weeks of political tension over an election in August.

The poll was marred by widespread fraud in favour of Mr Karzai, forcing a second-round vote.

The Taliban has vowed to stage attacks ahead of the run-off on November 7 and more US troops possibly being sent to the country.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack on the guest house and the Serena in a telephone call to The Associated Press, saying three militants with homicide vests, grenades and machine guns carried out the assault.

He said three days ago the Taliban issued a statement threatening anyone working on the Nov. 7 runoff election between Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah.

"This is our first attack," he said.

Afghans vote Nov. 7 in a second round election after U.N.-backed auditors threw out nearly a third of Karzai's votes from the Aug. 20 ballot, determining widespread fraud. That pushed Karzai's totals below the 50 percent threshold needed for a first round victory in the 36-candidate field.

The Taliban warned Afghans to stay away from the polls or risk attacks. Dozens of people were killed in Taliban attacks during the August balloting, helping drive down turnout.

The violence came a day after roadside bombs killed eight US soldiers.

Interesting that the violence in Afghanistan has increased since er um Obama has been president. They know a weak leader and they know he wants to get out.

Car Bomb at Pakistan Market Kills at Least 86




Oct. 28: Destroyed buildings burn after a bomb ripped through a women's market in Peshawar


Car Bomb at Pakistan Market Kills at Least 86

FOX News


PESHAWAR, Pakistan

A car bomb tore through a market popular with women in northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday, killing 86 people hours after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in the country to show American support for its campaign against Islamist militants.

More than 200 people were wounded in the blast in the main northwestern city of Peshawar, the deadliest in a surge of attacks this month. The government blamed militants seeking to avenge an army offensive launched this month against al-Qaida and Taliban in their stronghold close to the Afghan border.

The blast hit a market selling bangles, dresses and toys in an old part of town crisscrossed with narrow alleys. It set scores of shops on fire, collapsed buildings, including a mosque, and sent a cloud of gray smoke over the city. TV footage showed wounded people sitting amid the debris as people grabbed at the wreckage, trying to pull out survivors before carrying them to a hospital.

One two-story building collapsed as firefighters doused it with water.

Clinton, on her first visit to Pakistan as secretary of state, was three hours' drive away in the capital, Islamabad, when the blast took place. Speaking to reporters, she praised the army's anti-Taliban offensive in South Waziristan and offered U.S. support.

"I want you to know that this fight is not Pakistan's alone," she said in remarks carried live on Pakistani news channels. "This is our struggle as well."

Sahib Gul, a doctor at a nearby hospital, said 86 people were killed and more than 200 injured. Many of the victims were women and children.

Since they have been going after the Taliban in Pakistan my guess it can only be the Taliban that did this bombing.

Boston Muslim Planned To KIll Shoppers in Mall



Tarek Mehanna

BOSTON, Mass. (WBZ)


Sudbury Man Arrested On Terrorism Charges

A man from Sudbury was arrested Wednesday on federal terrorism charges for allegedly planning attacks inside and outside the United States – including a plot to attack people at a mall

THE ARREST

27-year-old Tarek Mehanna was taken into custody at his parents' home in Fairhaven Circle by federal agents and Sudbury police early this morning.

THE ALLEGED PLOTS

Investigators say Mehanna conspired with others between 2001 and 2008 plotting to "kill, kidnap, maim or injure" people in foreign countries and to kill two members of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government.

He and two others allegedly travelled to the Middle East in 2004 to look for military-type training for attacks on U.S. interests.

But they were rejected from a terrorist training camp because Mehanna was not Pakistani.

"I believe they could not make a contact in Yemen that would accept them into a training camp," said acting U. S. Attorney Michael Loucks.

'SHOOTING PEOPLE AT A MALL'

Prosecutors say Mehanna had "multiple conversations about obtaining automatic weapons and randomly shooting people at a shopping mall."

"The conversations went so far as to discuss the logistics of a mall attack including coordination, weapons needed and the possibility of attacking emergency responders," Loucks said.
"They had discussions regarding how to do it, whether to do it from multiple entrances, what to do when emergency responders arrive," he added.

The plan was scrapped because the men could only get handguns and not the automatic weapons they wanted.

"They determined it was not feasible to go forward," Loucks said.

Prosecutors would not say which malls were targeted.

THE OTHER SUSPECTS

Loucks said Mehanna conspired with two other men: Ahman Abousamra, who authorities say is now in Syria, and an unnamed man, who is cooperating with authorities in the investigation.

Investigators say the men "were inspired by the success of the Washington D.C. area snipers who were successful in terrorizing the public" in 2002.

According to authorities the three did not believe civilians were "innocents because they paid taxes to support the government and because they were non-believers."

NO LINK TO OBAMA VISIT

Loucks would not comment on the timing of Mehanna's arrest, but added it's not linked to President Obama's visit to Boston Friday.

Sudbury is an upscale suburb about 20 miles west of Boston.

"It has nothing whatsoever to do with the President's visit," he told reporters at a news conference.
"We don't believe there are any terrorist cells in this area and any active cells that are plotting and planning at this time," said FBI special agent Warren Bamford.

If convicted Mehanna faces 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

DEFIANT AT HEARING

During a court hearing on Wednesday, Mehanna refused to stand for the judge.

When the judge called him on it, Mehanna said, "I prefer not to stand."

Moments later, after his father told him to get up, Mehanna stood and kicked back the chair he was sitting in.

Mehanna will remain in U.S. Marshal Custody.

MEHANNA'S PAST

He was indicted in January for allegedly making false statements to the FBI in a terrorism investigation.

Mehanna, a U.S. citizen, was arrested in November and charged with lying to the FBI in December 2006 when asked about the whereabouts of Daniel Maldonado, who is now serving a 10-year prison sentence for training alongside al-Qaeda members to overthrow the Somali government.

Mehanna's father, Dr. Ahmed Mehanna, is professor of medicinal chemistry at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in Boston.


A 27-year-old Massachusetts man Tarek Mehanna has been charged with conspiring with others to carry out terror attacks against shoppers in U.S. malls and against U.S. military in Iraq, federal authorities say. (Oct. 21)

DEMOCRATS Vote to Allow Gitmo Detainees Into USA For Trials




Dems vote to allow Gitmo detainees into US for trials

NY Post

Handing Barack Obama a partial victory in his effort to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, House Democrats on Thursday repelled a Republican effort to block transfer of any of the detainees to the U.S.

Instead, by a 224-193 vote, the House stood by a Democratic plan to allow suspected enemy combatants held at the controversial Guantanamo facility to be shipped to U.S. soil — but only to be prosecuted for their suspected crimes.

The Guantanamo restrictions were attached by House-Senate negotiators on a $42.8 billion homeland security appropriations bill.

Barack Obama has ordered the facility closed in January but has yet to offer a plan to meet his deadline. cm-bd

Democratic leaders had to push hard to win the vote because many Democrats two weeks ago had cast a nonbinding but politically safe vote against any Guantanamo detainee transfers. But several Democrats from swing districts said they saw little political risk on Thursday’s vote.

“It’s a non-issue. Inside the beltway stuff,” said first-term Rep. Dan Maffai, D-N.Y. “People care about jobs, the economy, health care.”
“I haven’t had one person ask me about Guantanamo,” said Rep. Baron Hill, D-Ind. He added that he does “not in the least” fear it as an issue in next year’s elections.

Permitting Guantanamo prisoners to be transferred to U.S. soil to stand trial had been a bipartisan compromise earlier. It mostly tracks current restrictions put in place in June and is similar to a version backed by Republicans earlier in the year. In fact, Republicans such as top Appropriations panel Rep. Jerry Lewis of California helped fashion the compromise.

But in the absence of a plan from the administration for closing the facility, Lewis has toughened his talk, calling the administration’s plan misguided and potentially dangerous.

“Terrorists should not be treated like common criminals in federal court,” Lewis said. “These detainees are enemies of the state, and should be treated as such by being held and brought to justice right where they are — in Guantanamo Bay.”

Democrats say that Republicans are simply seeking a political opening.

Bloodthirsty German (?) Al Qaeda Fanatic Poses With 2Ft-Long Knife For Beheading



Abu Askar records a video while holding the knife



Askar, seen holding an AK47, trains European Jihadists and vowed to 'achieve a victory for Islam'


Bloodthirsty German Al Qaeda fanatic poses with 2ft-long knife for beheading British soldiers in Afghanistan

An Al Qaeda fanatic who trains fellow Europeans to fight in Afghanistan has given a stark warning to our troops - by posing with a 2ft-long beheading knife.

The bearded terrorist, identified as ‘Abu Askar the German’, belongs to one of Osama Bin Laden’s ‘foreign legions’ fighting alongside the Taliban.

In a new terror video posted online he vows to 'achieve a victory for Islam' using the huge blade, which is inscribed with an Arabic passage from the Quran.

In pictures designed to scare British and American soldiers is also seen sitting with an AK47 rifle.

Terrorism expert and author Chris Dobson told The Sun: ‘The bloodthirsty threat of Abu Askar the German and his giant cleaver is plain - anyone who opposes us will lose their heads.

‘Fanatical Islamic Jihadists have a record of beheading captives and boasting about it to cause fear among their enemies.
‘Abu Askar and his knife are undoubtedly part of the “war of the mind” the Jihadists are waging against the West.
‘But they also reflect a growing confidence, especially among home-grown terrorists, that the West is becoming vulnerable.’
A message with the video says Askar belongs to a terror group closely allied to al-Qaeda.

It is known to hide out in the lawless Pakistan border region and cross into Afghanistan to launch attacks against British and US forces.

Askar boasted that the terrorists have attracted recruits from all over Europe as well as from Russia and China.
Britain’s Army commander, General Sir David Richards, has sounded the alarm over any possibility of losing the war in Afghanistan to men like Askar.

He said: ‘Failure would have a catalytic effect on militant Islam because the message would be that al-Qaeda has defeated the most powerful alliance in the world.’

Good News for Terrorists: Democratic Revisions to the PATRIOT Act


The wives of the terrorists arrested in Canada who were planning to detonate bombs against the Toronto stock exchange, storm Parliament and, if they were lucky, behead the prime minister. ( Note CELL Phones)


Good News for Terrorists: Democratic Revisions to the PATRIOT Act


By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann

If only terrorists would be so accommodating as not to change cell phones, the new curbs on the Patriot Act being pushed by Democrats in Congress would not be so dangerous. But, unfortunately, even a book entitled Terrorism for Dummies would tell them to use multiple cell phones to plot their mayhem.


In the aftermath of Oklahoma City, President Clinton asked Congress for authority to order roving wiretaps, targeting the terror suspect rather than one specific phone. If he changed phones, the FBI could tap each new phone he used without getting a separate warrant. Congress unwisely and unaccountably refused. But when President Bush renewed the request, after 9-11, Congress included the authorization in the Patriot Act. But this provision and many other essential investigatory tools is subject to sunset at the end of the year. Unless affirmatively renewed by Congress, they will lapse.


Drug enforcement agents have long used roving wiretaps but anti-terror investigators will not be able to use them if Congress doesn’t extend the authority. Our anti-terror investigators will be back to the one phone-one warrant rule.

Former Bush Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey, writing in an op-ed in Friday’s Wall Street Journal notes that roving wiretaps “helped thwart a plot earlier this year to blow up synagogues in Riverdale, New York.” Yet liberal Democrats are fighting the renewal of the roving wiretap authority as part of a broad offensive against the very Patriot Act provisions which have kept us safe (often by narrow margins) since 9-11.

Other liberal targets include the statute which allows terror investigators to apply for court orders to search business records in national security investigations.

The Democrats want to limit this authority to instances in which investigators can prove that their target is an agent of a foreign power. Since terrorists are unlikely to register under FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act), one wonders how investigators are supposed to be able to prove that they are foreign agents before they can investigate them!

Even though investigators can only search the business records if they get the approval of the court, this safeguard does not impress the liberals. Ironically, the IRS can access these very same business records if they are connected with a tax investigation whether or not a foreign agent is involved. But terror investigators will have to face a more daunting hurdle.

Another sunsetting provision under attack is the so-called “lone wolf authority” which allows investigators to launch a probe even if they cannot prove, before they start, that the target is connected to a terrorist group. Again, the liberals would put the horse before the cart and demand proof before an inquiry could begin.

Other liberal targets include limiting the use of National Security Letters - in effect subpoenas - in terror investigations.

The fact is that there has not been a single instance of reported abuse of these investigative powers by counter-terrorist agents. No records have even been turned over the other government agencies like the IRS or the DEA. No leaks have appeared in the media. No citizen’s privacy has been compromised by publication of his secrets in the newspapers.

On the other hand, the list of terror attacks that have been prevented by using these authorities is extensive. Most recently, these tools helped stop Najibullah Zazi from loading backpacks with lethal explosives and detonating them on New York City subways.

Will Obama endorse these crippling amendments? Will Democrats like Senators Gillibrand and Schumer who come from endangered states like New York back them?

Heaven help the Democratic Party and President Obama if these debilitating amendments pass or if the authority to use this statute lapses and another terrorist attack takes place! Heaven help the victims too!


Amid terror threat, Dems chip away at Patriot Act

By: Byron York
Chief Political Correspondent

Some Democratic lawmakers have long wanted to weaken the act, and now, with big majorities in the House and Senate, they have their chance. Republicans are fighting to keep the law in its current form.

"These three provisions have been very important for the investigative agencies who are working every day to protect us from terrorist attack," says Sen. Jeff Sessions, ranking Republican on the committee. "Before the Patriot Act, terrorist investigators had far less authority to get records and documents than a DEA or an IRS agent."

Even roving wiretaps, a widely accepted, common-sense feature of the Patriot Act, have come under question. At a Sept. 23 committee hearing, Sen. Al Franken, the newest member of the committee, challenged the constitutionality of such wiretaps, and in the process left an Obama Justice Department official -- who supports the law -- muttering in frustration.


That official, Assistant Attorney General David Kris, tried to explain to Franken that the law allows, and the courts have held, that investigators can wiretap a suspect based on a specific description of that suspect's activities, even if investigators don't know his name.

Franken, who pointed out that he is not a lawyer, was unimpressed. "That's what brings me to this," he said, pulling a copy of the Constitution from his coat pocket. He read aloud the Fourth Amendment: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized."
Is the Patriot Act's roving wiretap provision consistent with the Constitution? Franken asked.
"I do think it is," Kris answered, "and I kind of want to defer to that other, third branch of government. The courts, in looking at -----"
"I know what they are," Franken joked, as the audience laughed.
Kris seemed taken aback. "This is surreal," he said under his breath.

Indeed it was. Maybe Franken was serious, and maybe he was just clowning around. But it didn't make for an enlightening exchange -- or bode well for the Patriot Act.

Now the committee is down to the business of crafting an actual bill to reauthorize the act. Republicans believe they can beat back some of the more sweeping changes, but they are under no illusions about the Democratic majority's power to chip away at the government's ability to fight terrorism.

"I'm very worried that we could end up weakening the act," says Sessions, "when we should be considering what we can do to make it stronger."


Wild Thing's comment......

Obama and this administration scare me more then the terrorists. I felt good about the Patriot Act with Bush as President.....with Obama and Janet H. and her DHS it takes on a whole different meaning.

Morris said a lot of good points about it, important ones. I sure hope the Republicans keep an eye on Obama and his ilk and what they do with it. I want them to be able to wire tap because it helps them find out information about terrorists. I just don't want Obama to use it against all of us for saying we don't like him or something. He is capable of anything.

House Votes Against Bringing Gitmo Detainees to U.S.



House votes against bringing Gitmo detainees to US

WASHINGTON


The House went on record Thursday against allowing detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba to be transferred to the United States, even to face trial or to be jailed in maximum-security prisons.

The 258-163 vote on a nonbinding recommendation put Democrats controlling the House in a difficult spot and prompted senior lawmakers to postpone unveiling a House-Senate agreement on a homeland security funding bill.

If such a ban were to become law, the Obama administration would be hard-pressed to close the Guantanamo Bay prison by January as Obama has promised. Last week the administration acknowledged for the first time that it might not be able to close the facility by that deadline because of difficulties in reviewing detainee files and resolving legal and logistical questions.

Eighty-eight Democrats broke with Obama and House leaders on the nonbinding recommendation, an ominous sign for future votes. It would be difficult for lawmakers to change their positions without drawing withering criticism from political adversaries.

The administration has yet to reveal its plan for closing the prison. Supporters of the transfer ban say an overwhelming number of their constituents want to keep Guantanamo prisoners where they are.


"There is no reason these terrorists, who pose a serious and documented threat to our nation, cannot be brought to justice right where they are in Cuba," said Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky. "I certainly think that is where the American people stand on this issue — they don't want these terrorists in their hometowns."

Supporters of closing Guantanamo say the facility and the lengthy detention of suspects who may have been held indefinitely without trial have stained the United States' reputation across the globe. And they said fears of bringing the detainees to the U.S. are exaggerated.

"I refuse to believe that our law enforcement officials, our prison officials and our Justice Department officials are not skilled enough and thoughtful enough to imprison these thugs in high-security facilities at minimal or no danger to our citizens and our communities," said House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-Wis.

Several of the fiscal 2010 funding bills contain varying restrictions on the transfer of Guantanamo detainees, reflecting widespread opposition among voters about bringing enemy combatants onto U.S. soil. A bill pending on the Senate floor, for example, contains an outright ban on releasing Guantanamo detainees into the U.S., including for trial or incarceration.

The vote also put House members on record as backing the Obama administration's refusal to release new photos showing U.S. personnel abusing detainees held overseas.

President Barack Obama has already said he would use every available means to block release of additional detainee abuse photos because they could whip up anti-American sentiment overseas and endanger U.S. troops. His powers include issuing an order to classify the photos, thus blocking their release.




Wild Thing's comment........

Tah dah! Well it is official we can officially call him a FAILED PRESIDENT.

He promised to his lemmings who voted for him that GITMO would be closed in a year and he has FAILED to meet his Commitment to the American People.

Taliban to Germany: Leave Afghanistan or Lose Oktoberfest

Taliban to Germany: Leave Afghanistan or lose Oktoberfest


The Taliban have a new target: beer and bratwurst.

In perhaps their most bizarre threat to date, Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan have threatened to bomb the Oktoberfest festival in Munich, Germany, which attracts millions of visitors ever year, along with several
landmark buildings and government officials.

The threats, while perhaps farfetched, follow a series of warnings from the Taliban and Al Qaeda and underscores a concerted effort by the insurgents to weaken Germany’s resolve for the fight in Afghanistan.

Germany has responded by banning all air flights over Munich for the rest of the 16-day festival, which
ends Oct. 4.

The threats were delivered in a series of videotapes issued by the Taliban on Friday, the Guardian reported.
One features a German-speaking militant named Ajjub.

The videos coincide with a recent warning to Germany issued by Osama Bin Laden, delivered in Arabic with German subtitles, as The Christian Science Monitor reported.

In fact, for the past two weeks, in the runup to Germany’s elections on Sunday, the Taliban and Al Qaeda
have issued several messages, as Germany’s Deutsche Welle news service reports.

The insurgents' threat to bomb the famous festival is apparently meant to weaken Germany's resolve for
the fight in Afghanistan. It follows similar warnings issued by the Taliban and Al Qaeda ahead of Sunday's elections.

Merkel is not weak like Obama, I can just see her give a counter-offer...Lay down your weapons and hand over Osama, and THEN we’ll stop bombing you. And mess with our beer, we’ll kill you!

Jihad Jordanian Arrested in Dallas Bomb Plot






Man arrested after placing inactive bomb in Dallas

Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, 19, has been arrested and charged in a federal criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

James T. Jacks, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, and Robert E. Casey, Jr., Special Agent in Charge for the Dallas Office of the FBI, announced today that Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, 19, has been arrested and charged in a federal criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.





Smadi, who was under continuous surveillance by the FBI, was arrested today near Fountain Place, a 60-story glass office tower located at 1445 Ross Avenue in downtown Dallas, after he placed an inert/inactive car bomb at the location. Smadi, a Jordanian citizen in the U.S. illegally, lived and worked in Italy, Texas, (approximately 45 miles south of Dallas). He has repeatedly espoused his desire to commit violent Jihad and has been the focus of an undercover FBI investigation.

"The highest priority of the FBI and the Department of Justice remains the prevention of another terrorist attack within the United States," said U.S. Attorney Jacks. "In that effort, it is the job of the FBI to locate and identify individuals intent upon carrying out any type of attack upon this country and its citizens/residents. Whether as part of a group or acting alone, persons contemplating such acts need to know that all components of the government are working together to ferret out their activities and to insure that such individuals face the full measure of the law. The identification and apprehension of this defendant, who was acting alone, is a sobering reminder that there are people among us who want to do us grave harm," Jacks continued.
Special Agent in Charge Casey said, "Today's arrest of Hosam Maher Husein Smadi underscores the FBI's unwavering commitment to bring to justice persons who attempt to bring harm to citizens of this country and significant danger to this community. Smadi made a decision to act to commit a significant conspicuous act of violence under his banner of "self Jihad." He will now face justice. The many agents, detectives, analysts and prosecutors who helped to bring about Thursday's arrest deserve special thanks for their efforts. This case serves as a reminder of the continuing threats of terrorism we face as a nation and the FBI's resolve to meet those threats. The arrest of Smadi is not in any way related to the ongoing terror investigation in New York and Colorado."
"The criminal complaint alleges that Hosam Smadi sought and attempted to bomb the Fountain Place office tower, but a coordinated undercover law enforcement action was able to thwart his efforts and ensure no one was harmed," said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security.

Smadi will make his initial appearance tomorrow in U.S. District Court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Irma C. Ramirez, at 11:00 a.m.

According to affidavits filed today with the complaint and search warrants:

Smadi was discovered by the FBI espousing his desire to commit significant acts of violence. Smadi stood out because of his vehement intention to actually conduct terror attacks in the U.S.

The FBI developed an investigative plan to determine Smadi's true intent while also protecting the public's safety. Smadi made clear his intention to serve as a soldier for Usama Bin Laden and al-Qa'ida, and to conduct violent Jihad. Undercover FBI agents, posing as members of an al-Qa'ida "sleeper" cell, were introduced to Smadi, who repeatedly indicated to them that he came to the U.S. for the specific purpose of committing "Jihad for the sake of God." Smadi clarified that he was interested in "self-Jihad," because it was "the best type of Jiihad." Smadi was interested in violent Jihad against those he deemed to be enemies of Islam. The investigation determined Smadi was not associated with other terrorist organizations.

Throughout the investigation, undercover FBI agents repeatedly encouraged Smadi to reevaluate his interpretation of Jihad, counseling him that the obligations a Moslem has to perform Jihad can be satisfied in many ways. Every time this interaction occurred, Smadi aggressively responded that he was going to commit significant, conspicuous acts of violence as his Jihad.

In June 2009, Smadi identified potential targets in the Dallas area; but in mid-July, he notified an undercover FBI agent that he had changed his mind regarding the targets. On July 21, 2009, Smadi met with an undercover FBI agent and directed the agent to drive them to a Wells Fargo Bank in downtown Dallas. Smadi and the undercover FBI agent then drove to 1445 Ross Avenue where the Fountain Place office tower is located. A Wells Fargo Bank is located in that building. Smadi went into the building where he conducted his own reconnaissance.

In late August 2009, while meeting with one of the undercover FBI agents in Dallas, Smadi discussed the logistics and timing of the bombing, stating that he would have preferred to do the attack on "11 September," but decided to wait until after the month of Ramadan, which ended on September 20, 2009. At the conclusion of the meeting, Smadi decided that a vehicle borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) would be placed at the foundation of the Fountain Place office tower. Unbeknownst to Smadi, the FBI ensured the VBIED contained only an inert/inactive explosive device which contained no explosive materials.

A federal complaint is a written statement of the essential facts of the offenses charged, and must be made under oath before a magistrate judge. A defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. The offense of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction carries, upon conviction, a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The case is being investigated by the FBI in conjunction with members of the FBI-sponsored North Texas Joint Terrorism Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Dayle Elieson is in charge of the prosecution. The Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department's National Security Division is assisting in the prosecution.

Jihad Watch

Dallas bomber: "We shall attack them in their very homes"

"I truly say it that my dream is to be among God's soldiers, first for the support of Islam and my beloved Sheik Usama, may God give him long life. I don't know what is in me, but I love him as I love my father. I don't want to add to this.
Now, my brother, the point is that thousands of Muslims have been killed at the hand of Jews -- the dogs -- and the silent disloyal backsliders. Those are the Arab kings and, God willing, their end will be the hanging rope and hell.


Their silence and fight against the Sheik mean that they are backsiders along with the enemy in a world plan to destroy Islam, Muslims, and to seize their lands for the benefit of the Jews and for the love of infidelity.

By God who created me, there will not be a retreat at all, even if they take me to Guantanamo for the rest of my life. I will never forget Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, or any land where the call of, 'there is no God but God, Muhammad is God's Messenger' is raised.
Who will assist the brothers, the infants, the women who became widows and their orphan children? Who would return these lands before religion and blessing disappear? Who would cause these tyrants to fall? In the name of God, the Gracious and Merciful, this is my vow to you, my brother, that I am ready. And if you were a lover of Jihad as I am, then, by God, I am ready for the Jihadi life. What you will see of me will please you and your commander.
The reign is only for the living and powerful God. I ask Him that he would be our Caliph and Ruler."
"My brother in God, God and His angels are with us. With the permission of the Almighty Lord of the Worlds, we will have victory and allies from God Almighty. He is the powerful and helpful. Victory is coming, is coming to defeat the Romans [i.e., Christians] and for the destruction of the Jews. God is Most Great. We shall attack them in their very homes. Brother, by God, we shall attack them in a manner that hurts, an attack that shakes the world. Oh Brother, let the backsliders know that the time for their destruction has come."

The two were among seven suspects arrested in July on accusations that they conspired to provide material support to terrorists and conspired to murder, kidnap, maim and injure people overseas.
A new indictment unveiled Thursday charged Daniel Patrick Boyd, the group's alleged ringleader, and Hysen Sherifi "with conspiring to murder U.S. military personnel" in connection with the planned assault on the Marine Corps base, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Raleigh said in a statement.
The statement offered no details, except to say that Boyd had undertaken reconnaissance of Quantico and obtained maps of the base in order to plan the attack.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said that Boyd also possessed armor-piercing ammunition, and that he had stated that it was "to attack the Americans."

FBI Terror Probe Expands, Intensifies--Nearly All of the Bureau's U.S. Field Offices involved




Mohammed Zazi, father of Najibullah Zazi, was arrested along with his son and a third man from New York City for possible ties to terrorists.

Najibullah Zazi





FBI Terror Probe Expands, Intensifies--Nearly All of the Bureau's U.S. Field Offices involved

Investigation Into Alleged NYC Bomb Plot Includes Nearly All of the Bureau's U.S. Field Offices

Criminal Complaint Suggests Cops May Have Tipped-Off Zazi By Questioning New York Imam, Seizing Car

New York Local News


The FBI is expanding its investigation into an alleged terror plot targeting New York City, and nearly every one of the FBI's 57 field offices in the country and several overseas are now in on the case, working along with local police.

On Wednesday, the NYPD was showing a new training video in precincts citywide detailing the intelligence from the agencies. Bomb Squad Commander Lt. Marc Torre narrates the video, giving regular cops some tips on how to spot evidence of homemade bombs.

"Of particular concern to us is a family of explosives called peroxide-based explosives," he says in the video.

It's part of the now-nationwide alert as police try to locate whoever might have been working with terror suspect Nazibullah Zazi, the Afghan-born Denver resident who federal sources believe is the central figure in a terror cell involving at least 12 people.

Police are being told to watch for any large quantities of hydrogen peroxide, drain cleaner, acetone, or nail polish remover – various types of acids – and large quantities of ammonia nitrate or urea fertilizer.

That's coupled with visits to public storage areas to enlist the assistance of employees there, and stepped-up security on mass transit, hotels, stadiums, and entertainment complexes.

It's not just New York either. People across the country are experiencing the same routine as folks who were going through heightened security at Citi Field for the Mets game last night.

So far there are three people under arrest in connection with the alleged plot. The prime suspect, being held in Denver, his father, and a Queens cleric who was arrested over the weekend in New York, are all scheduled to be back in federal court on Thursday.

CBS News learned Tuesday that a hunt was on to see if suspects had stored a cache of explosives somewhere in New York City.

al-Qaeda terror operative told investigators he received training in "weapons and explosives" from Osama Bin Laden's goons last year, according to documents released Sunday.

Najibullah Zazi admitted he visited Pakistan's wartorn tribal areas for the training, documents said.

Federal agents from Denver and New York to Pakistan are still racing to solve an Al Qaeda bomb plot, unsure whether the arrest of three suspects has put the terror gang out of business. "They're still looking," a senior counterterror official told the Daily News. As to whether they have identified all the conspirators, "nobody knows the answer for sure," ... Also nabbed for lying to feds was Flushing mosque Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali, 37, an NYPD snitch who the FBI says alerted Zazi and his father, Mohammed, 53, after cops quizzed him about the son.



Wild Thing's comment......

Hmmmmm interesting, No word from the White House whatsoever. Bush would have said something by now.

Ramadan ended Saturday.

Rosh Hoshanah began Sunday. This is the holy week between the start of the new Jewish year and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, next weekend.

The Muslims are planning a mass prayer to Allah on the Washington mall on Friday the 25th.

And Islamic terrorists love dates of significance.

NYC Terror Plot Suspect, Father Arrested in Colorado



NYC Sports Stadiums, Fashion Venues Researched by Man Eyed in Terror Investigation

FOX News

Investigators found research on New York City sports stadiums and sites related to the city's Fashion Week events on the computer of a man being questioned in an FBI probe of an alleged terrorist plot, ABC News reports.

Authorities have made few public comments about the progress of their investigation, but there have been numerous reports that Najibullah Zazi has admitted to ties to Al Qaeda while claiming he was not central to the suspected terror cell under investigation.

Zazi had been cooperating with authorities and was interviewed several time this week by investigators, but on Saturday, he apparently didn't report for a fourth day of FBI questioning. His attorney has said the reports of a confession to terror ties were untrue.

The FBI had no immediate comment.


NYC Terror Plot Suspect, Father Arrested in Colorado

FOX News

Federal agents Saturday arrested Najibullah Zazi, the man under investigation in a terrorism probe in New York, and his father after swarming Zazi's Aurora, Colo., apartment.

At 9:30 p.m., 15 to 20 law enforcement cars reportedly swarmed into the parking lot of Zazi's apartment.

Both Najibullah's Zazi and his father, Muhommad, were removed from the apartment in handcuffs by armed FBI agents.

Wendy Aiello, a spokeswoman for Zazi's defense team, told FOX News their attorney Arthur Folsom was on his way to meet them, but it was not known what they would be charged with.

Earlier in the evening, Aiello told KDVR in Denver "we have not been contacted by the FBI."

Zazi didn't report for a fourth day of FBI questioning earlier Saturday so he could spend a much-needed day with his attorney, Aiello said.

Najibullah Zazi had been scheduled to go to the Federal Building in Denver on Saturday. But Aiello told The Associated Press that Zazi and his attorney contacted the FBI to cancel the meeting.

"They are meeting as client and attorney to review the case and the entire situation," Aiello said. "Further meetings with the FBI are not being ruled out."

"I do know that Mr. Zazi is very tired," she added.

The FBI had no immediate comment.

Zazi, a 24-year-old airport shuttle driver, insists he is not involved in terrorism and has no links to Al Qaeda. He is not under arrest.

He completed a third day of questioning Friday and was allowed to return to his suburban Denver apartment.

"The Denver FBI office has been very professional and courteous to Mr. Zazi and his family, and Mr. Zazi has cooperated fully with the Denver FBI office," Aiello said.

Zazi's defense team denied reports that Zazi is considering a plea deal related to terror charges, and Folsom, has dismissed as "rumor" remarks by a senior U.S. intelligence official in Washington that Zazi played a crucial role in an intended terrorist attack.

The official told the AP on Friday that Zazi has indicated he is directly linked with Al Qaeda. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss intelligence matters, said Zazi played a crucial role in an intended terrorist attack but that it was not immediately clear what the targets were.

The official said the plot was being directed from outside the United States.

"Absolutely no way. It's a rumor," Folsom said Friday.



Telegraph co.uk

The suspect has admitted contacts with extremists in Pakistan and may strike a plea deal over allegations that he attended a military training camp, according to US media reports of law enforcement officials. He denies involvement in any terrorist acts or plots.


A car journey last week by Zazi from Denver, where he now lives, to the Queens district of New York, his previous home, sparked a major police operation based on telephone intercepts, FBI officials have said. Searches of homes in Queens turned up maps, backpacks and other indications that there may have been a plot to carry bombs onto trains in the New York area. With President Barack Obama and other world leaders arriving in the city in the coming days for the United Nations General Assembly, security concerns are particularly high.

Despite the raids, there have been no formal arrests as a result of the investigation and Zazi is helping police voluntarily.

A US intelligence official in Washington told The Associated Press that they suspected there was an intended attack but that it was not immediately clear what the targets were. The official said that the plot was being directed from outside the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security beefed up security at airport and issued a reminder to mass transit authorities in big cities to remain vigilant.

WCBS-TV reported that law enforcement officials claim to have recorded a number of conversations between Zazi and a known al-Qaida operative in Pakistan.



Corruption: Banks Lending UNSECURED To Terrorists?


Al Qaeda operative had $50k in unsecured loans from bailout banks

Oh, so we have a 25 year old Afghan immigrant, presumably here legally but probably not a naturalized citizen. He didn't own his own business, he drove a delivery vehicle for a shuttle company. A decidedly pedestrian line of work, and one that doesn't pay all that well (can you say "taxi driver"?)

Yet our banks - the ones that have received federal bailout money - gave this guy $50,000 worth of outstanding credit on multiple lines, which he all drew down and spent (presumably on whatever he was up to here) prior to filing bankruptcy.

Can someone answer this question:

HOW IN THE HELL DO OUR BANKING REGULATORS ALLOW THIS SORT OF OUTRIGHT FRAUDULENT GRANTING OF CREDIT? $50,000 IN UNSECURED CREDIT LINES TO A FREAKING DELIVERY DRIVER WHO APPEARS TO BE A FOREIGN NATIONAL WITH NO ASSETS IN THE UNITED STATES AGAINST WHICH TO SECURE THE LOAN?

THE BANKS THAT WE BAILED OUT FAILED TO STOP THIS CRAP ALL THE WAY UP TO MARCH OF THIS YEAR AT LEAST (WHEN THIS GUY FILED BANKRUPTCY) AND PROBABLY STILL ARE DOING IT!

This is an OUTRAGE. Not only did this guy effectively stick the US Taxpayer with the $50,000 in debt it appears he may have been using the freaking money to plot some sort of terrorist attack as part of an Al-Quaida cell INSIDE THE UNITED STATES?

TO PUT THIS IN ONE SENTENCE: BANKS THAT WE BAILED OUT WITH TAXPAYER MONEY ARE FUNDING TERRORISTS INSIDE THE US?!

HUH???? What am I missing here??? The FBI is waiting for him to report in to them, like they trust him to do such a thing? OMG LOL Was that Obama's idea?

Doesn’t naming a child Najibullah pretty much guarantee the kid’s gonna be a terrorist? Like naming a kid Jeeves pretty limits him to butlering??

From what I have read and heard in the news the NYPD went after these guys first because Obama would not. And that the FBI was totally ticked off. So Obama's messing in with things that have to do with our protection once again.

New York and Denver Terror Probe, Najibullah Zazi Admits Al Qaeda Ties




Denver man at heart of New York terror probe, Najibullah Zazi, wants to cut deal with FBI

New York Daily News


The Afghan national at the center of a reputed Al Qaeda terror cell probe was trying to cut a deal Friday after two days of FBI grilling, sources told the Daily News.

Lawyers for Najibullah Zazi, 25, were negotiating with federal officials for an agreement where he could admit receiving military training - but deny plans to injure any Americans, sources familiar with the case said.

Zazi arrived at the FBI's Denver office Friday for a third day of questioning. He did a pair of eight-hour Q&A sessions with federal agents on the two previous days.

"Our strategy has not changed," his lawyer, Arthur Folsom, said before going inside Friday. "My client hasn't done anything. Our position is to answer the FBI's questions.
"They are asking him about everything -- the people he knows, people he's talked to, family members."

Two men were picked up Thursday for questioning in New York, but then released, a source involved in the probe said.

"We're still following all these guys," the source said. "And they know we're following them. The question is, 'Do we have everyone in the cell?'"


Zazi, whose trip from Denver to New York last weekend set off a series of police raids in Queens, filed for bankruptcy in March, court records show.

Between 2005 and 2008, he opened credit card accounts with Bank of America, Chase, Capital One, Discover and Citibank and ran up a debt of more than $50,000.

When he filed for bankruptcy, Zazi said he hadn't worked in two months.

While the interrogators focused on Zazi, authorities expanded their attention to include more potential suspects in a plot that raised concerns about the city's subway system.

When the probe began this week, five Colorado men cited as members of the cell were under a round-the-clock watch.

By Thursday, police sources said, that number had risen to as many as 12. A half-dozen were reportedly in New York, where Zazi arrived for a visit last week.

Sources said he returned to Colorado after slipping an FBI tail.

There were still no arrests three days after the NYPD raided a series of Queens apartments, taking the investigation public.

The were indications of how seriously authorities were taking the threat, which raised the specter of mass transit bombings in Spain and London.

The Homeland Security Department beefed up security in the nation's airports as a result of the Colorado-based probe, a senior official disclosed.

"Even a casual observer will notice a more visible presence of uniformed officers this week in the airports," the Homeland Security Department official told the Daily News.



Seven men who are under a federal investigation walked into a Queens U-Haul and tried to rent the largest Jumbo Sized Super Movertruck.



Feds probe alleged terrorists who tried to rent giant truck in suspected Al Qaeda bomb plot


Investigators probed a failed Queens truck rental for ties to a possible Al Qaeda bomb plot yesterday as a chief terror suspect tried making a deal to save his skin.

The New York end of the expanding federal probe centered on seven Afghan men who tried to rent the biggest truck at a Queens U-Haul on Sept. 9, sources told the Daily News.

The size of the vehicle involved - a 26-foot-long truck - suggested the conspirators wanted to pack it with explosives, sources said.

A police source acknowledged there was "quite a bit that we weren't completely sure of" about the plot or the role of Najibullah Zazi, the bearded public face of the terrorism investigation.

"We knew this guy [Zazi] wasn't innocent," the source said.

Zazi, after three days of FBI questioning, was considering a plea deal to turn informant, sources told The News.

The truck rental bid failed when none of the men could produce a valid credit card. All refused to surrender the identification needed to pay cash, the manager of the Flushing U-Haul said.

A team of FBI agents spent 10 hours Thursday combing through the Queens truck rental business.





Robert Larson, who manages the UHaul location in the St. Albans section of Queens, said he thought he was being 'punked.'



"We all feel very lucky right now," U-Haul manager Robert Larson told The News.

When the FBI arrived, Larson said, "I was wondering, 'Where is Ashton Kutcher to tell me I've been punked?'"
By the time the agents left, "I realized this is crazy, this is real, it's not a joke," Larson said.



Wild Thing's comment.......


The Attorney General will now investigate the hell out of you for unlawful interrogation techniques. Everyone knows you can’t interrogate someone for two eight hour days while letting them sleep in their own bed at night. Its 30 minutes tops. And you should apologize every 5 minutes. And give them a shoulder massage and a hot towel if they look at all tense.


Waterboard him! But since it is in Denver maybe they will do some snowboarding on him.

LOL that guy from the U-Haul place is funny. hahaha

FBI Unit Set For More Anti-terror Raids in Queens,NY and Colorado





The elite FBI Hostage Rescue Team is poised to make more anti-terror raids in Queens, sources told the Daily News.


FBI unit set for more anti-terror raids in Queens; Colorado home raided

New York Daily News

BY James Gordon Meek In Washington and Judith Crosson In Denver


FBI agents with bomb-sniffing dogs Wednesday raided the Colorado apartment of an Afghan national linked to Al Qaeda and a plot to attack the New York City subway system.

Simultaneously, authorities swarmed over a nearby home believed to belong to a relative of Najibullah Zazi, hauling out boxes of evidence.

And Zazi, 25, met with investigators at FBI headquarters in Denver and provided a DNA sample, a fingerprint and writing samples, his lawyer said.
"My client is not involved in any terror plot," lawyer Arthur Folsom said. "He answered every question they had."

The searches in Aurora, Colo., came as the NYPD and an elite FBI team poised for additional raids in Queens in a hunt for bomb-making materials, sources told the Daily News.


Earlier Queens, New York raids turned up nine knapsacks and cell phones, raising concerns about bombers detonating simultaneous blasts as they did in the 2004 attack that killed 191 commuters in Spain.

Bombers in the 2005 London subway attack that killed 56 people also used knapsacks. An FBI counterterrorism bulletin issued Monday cited the British terrorist attack.

Two men who lived in one of the Queens apartments raided Sunday night said a tenuous connection to Zazi had become a nightmare.

"They [the NYPD] keep coming back," Naiz Khan said last night. "They don't tell us why they're here. They took my cell phone and a knapsack that was to be a gift to a child and left."

His roommate Akbari Amanullah, 30, a cabbie, added: "We just wish it would stop."

On Tuesday, in Colorado, Zazi protested his innocence at his apartment doorway.

His bold denials amazed some counterterrorism sources, who described the bushy-bearded Zazi as a figure well-known to investigators.

A source familiar with the case said Zazi certainly had some bad connections to people overseas."

Zazi had traveled to Pakistan, refuge for many Al Qaeda leaders, before his trip to New York last week triggered the FBI and police raids.

There was a "strong suspicion" he attended a terrorist training camp in Pakistan, WCBS-TV reported.

In New York, police sources said they had e-mails, wiretaps and a confidential informant tying Zazi to the plot. The suspect was spotted in a Queens mosque last week and also was seen in lower Manhattan, the sources said.

Zazi managed to lose his FBI tail after he was warned about the federal attention, the sources said.

Despite intense around-the-clock scrutiny on Zazi and four other reputed cell members, authorities had yet to make an arrest in the case.

Sources told The News the quintet was the first suspected Al Qaeda cell they've uncovered in the U.S. since 9/11.

The number of people under surveillance by the FBI or the NYPD due to links with the Denver cell expanded Wednesday, a police source said.
"We were watching a few guys here," the NYPD source said. "Since the raid, the list has grown."

In the past three days, the NYPD increased its attention to the subway system and its 5.2 million daily riders.

Officers were warned to keep an eye out for vans near transportation hubs such as Grand Central, police sources said.

The safety zone around subway and commuter stations also was expanded by two blocks, the sources said.

The FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team was brought to New York for the anticipated second round of Queens raids, a police source said.

"If they're doing more raids in New York, that means they're going after everything they can," said a former top FBI counterterror official.



Najibullah Zazi


'Qaeda' plotted backpack bombs

NY Post

The terror plot unearthed after raids on three Queens homes involved operatives detonating nine explosives-laden backpacks to kill “as many people as possible,” The Post has learned.

“They were going to blow up several places simultaneously and take out as many people as possible — a large number of people,” a federal law-enforcement official said.

Empty backpacks were among the evidence seized from one of the Flushing apartments raided by a NYPD-FBI team Monday.

Authorities also removed computers, cellphones and other material. No explosives were found.

The predawn raids were sparked by the reappearance in New York City of an al Qaeda associate who’d gotten top-level training in bomb-making at a Pakistani terrorist camp, sources said.

Najibullah Zazi was schooled in demolitions and military tactics along with several other men; all eventually settled in Queens, according to the sources.

But when Zazi got wind that he was being watched, he hightailed it back to Aurora, Colo., where he now lives, although he was shadowed on the plane by FBI agents.

Now, feds are virtually monitoring Zazi's every move, phone call and computer stroke, the sources said.

Law enforcement also is trying to track down former confederates-in-arms whom he may have met over the past week, the sources said.
"I know they are looking at me, but I didn't do anything," said Zazi, who once worked as a Manhattan coffee-cart vendor.

Last week, he drove from Colorado to Queens in a rental car. He told The Associated Press he was pulled over during a "traffic stop" while driving into the city.

Even as the investigation intensifies, the FBI is furious with the NYPD for tipping off Zazi -- by canvassing his old Flushing neighborhood rather than discreetly inquiring about him.

Sources said the feds would have preferred to lie in wait a little longer to see what he and his contacts were planning.

An NYPD spokesman called those claims "an utter fabrication."


Terror Probe Spurs Raid by Police in New York

The Wall Street Journal

Authorities executed search warrants and seized evidence early Monday at locations in the Queens borough of New York City as part of a terrorism investigation, according to a senior official familiar with the case.

This person said some counterterrorism officials were concerned that the individual at the center of the investigation may have had access to, or an interest in acquiring, materials that could be used for a chemical, biological or radiological device. One aspect of the probe involves whether the person had some contact or connections with suspicious individuals overseas, the official said.

A second person familiar with the probe said investigators with New York's Joint Terrorism Task Force have had under surveillance one person in the case. It isn't clear what drew investigators' interest. Authorities recently raised the seriousness of the probe after "specific concrete evidence" came into their hands and after the person under surveillance made contact with subjects in Queens that law enforcement officials were familiar with, this person said.

At a three-story apartment complex in Flushing, Queens, where one of the raids occurred, dozens of neighbors gathered outside on Monday evening to share stories. Michelle Lenhart, an 18-year-old student who lives across the street, says she was walking her pit bull at 4 a.m. when she saw two trucks and four cars parked in front of the complex. Agents with "F.B.I." emblazoned on their jackets walked in and out of the building, she said. By 5 a.m. A Fox 5 News van was on the scene. "This is crazy," she says. "This is a good neighborhood, but it was right here on the block. I would never think" this would happen, she said.


FOX NEWS.com (AP): New York

"NYPD REWORDS REPORT THAT SOME SAY INSULTED MUSLIMS"

The New York Police Department revised a highly touted report on the threat of homegrown terrorism in response to complaints that it was an insult to law-abiding, observant Muslims.

New York-based Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition accused the NYPD of not doing enough to publicize them. Also, the study still has passages that "criminalize religious behaviors," said Aliya Latif of the New York office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a coalition member.

Police officials have denied the report stereotypes Muslims, even in its original form. The changes merely "make explicit what was already implicit" regarding the departments' respect for the community, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.

The report concluded that homegrown terrorists often were indoctrinated in local "radicalization incubators," including cafes and bookstores, that are "rife with extremist rhetoric."

The report warns that potential terrorists "are not on the law enforcement radar." They "look, act, talk and walk like everyone around them," it adds.


NY Daily News

SNIPPET: “Zazi was stopped at the George Washington Bridge on his way into the city, sources told The News. Authorities later seized his rental car from a Queens street, sources said.

In the car, sources said the feds found documents and papers about bomb-making and bombs. The massive federal response was “an indication of just how serious a threat they see this as,” said Frances Townsend, a former counterterrorism adviser to ex-President George W. Bush.”

Page 2:

SNIPPET: “Red flags about an impending attack went up last week when Zazi visited with several people in a single day, combined with worrisome information collected from wiretaps, sources said.”

40 Terrorists Go Free From Jail in England ~ WTH?!



Sohail Qureshi ... arrested Oct 06 as he prepared to board flight at Heathrow to fight overseas. Possessed night-vision goggles, kit and £9k cash believed to be for jihadi fighters. Got 4 and half yrs for terror crimes but due out next month



The Sun.....for complete article

FORTY convicted Islamic terrorists are back on the streets after being released from jail, a Sun investigation has revealed.

And another 50 plotters, including al-Qaeda trained Sohail Qureshi, will be free soon.

Security experts said Britain's justice system was lax compared to the US, where jailed terrorists often never get out.

East London dental assistant Qureshi - seized while trying to travel to Afghanistan to attack British troops - is one of 25 Islamic fanatics due to be freed within 12 months.

A further 25 will be out within three years. And 40 more are already free men, The Sun can reveal.

At least five of those are still classified as "high risk" and have to be closely monitored by cops and intelligence agents.

Qureshi, 31, who dreamed of being a martyr, was held in October 2006 with night-vision goggles, £9,000 in cash and military kit.

He was given a 4½-year prison term. But under Britain's justice system, in which jail sentences are frequently lenient and routinely cut, he will be out in a few weeks.

The disturbing figures emerged from a special Sun investigation into 120 people convicted of Islamic terrorist offences since 1999.

Our probe followed the conviction on Monday of three al-Qaeda terrorists who plotted to blow up seven airliners with bottle bombs.

The source from MAPPA - which stands for Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements - said: "There are many who will not be given tight supervision.

"Our biggest concern is that far from being rehabilitated in jail, their attitudes could have been hardened. Prisons have become a major recruiting ground for al-Qaeda."

Hulking thug Andrew Rowe - believed to be a key player in al-Qaeda's European operations - is among those scheduled for freedom.

Rowe, a 38-year-old Muslim convert, was caught returning to Britain through the Channel Tunnel with instructions on firing mortars and secret codes for terror attacks.

Former anti-terror cop Peter Clarke called him a "global terrorist". Mr Clarke added: "He has been trained and knows how to use extreme violence."

Rowe, also known as Yusef Abdullah, was originally jailed for 15 years in September 2005.

But his sentence was later reduced to ten years by the Appeal Court. With time served on remand, it means he will be released in eight months under the automatic two-thirds rule for prisoners serving more than four years.

Those jailed for four years or less are entitled to release after serving half their sentences - and can get out even earlier with a tag.

Shoe bomber Saajid Badat and missile terrorist Kazi Nurur Rahman are scheduled for freedom in two years.

Badat was jailed for 13 years after admitting he intended to blow himself up aboard a passenger jet. His cohort was fellow shoe bomber Richard Reid - now serving 110 years without parole in the US.

The pair were both trained for their mission by al-Qaeda fiends in Pakistan.

Badat, 30, pulled out when he lost his nerve. Components for a shoe bomb were later found at his Gloucester home.

Rahman, 31, was arrested in an MI5 sting in November 2005.

He was trying to buy missiles to shoot down airliners. He attended training camps in Pakistan with terrorists now serving life for plotting to bomb Kent's Bluewater shopping centre.

Mr Justice David Calvert-Smith jailed him for nine years, saying he intended to kill "large numbers of people".

Abu Bakr Mansha, who threatened to hunt down and kill a brave British soldier, is among those already released.

Mansha, of Thamesmead, South London, was arrested with a balaclava and a converted pistol in March 2005.

Cops also found videos of attacks on Allied troops in Iraq, a news article describing the heroics of Military Cross holder Corporal Mark Bayles - and a note of his former home address.

He was jailed for just six years in December 2005 after being convicted of terror offences and is now thought to be living in a probation hostel.

In addition, at least three people convicted of helping the 21/7 suicide bomb plotters are back out on the streets.

So too are the organisers of the Danish cartoon protests in London, when fanatics hailed the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks. Their sentences were cut by a third on appeal.

Five men who attended an al-Qaeda inspired training school in Sussex - caught in July 2006 - are out. Five Birmingham-based suspects - among a gang led by Parvis Khan, convicted of masterminding a plot to behead a British Muslim solider - have been freed.

It is thought there are around 20 recently freed extremists in probation hostels.

They can be subject to curfews but are free during the day.

The Probation Service looks set to be strained to breaking point.

And probation officers' union chief Harry Fletcher said the situation would be aggravated by Government proposals to slash budgets by 15 per cent.

He added: "It will lead to disaster."



Wild Thing's comment........

So England has lost their mind completely. They are letting terrorists out into the world to terrorize, to kill and destroy innocent people.

Those who plotted to kill hundreds of people just TWO YEARS AGO, are back on the streets over there.

Obama must be cherring them on since he has let some out of prison too.


....Thank you Darth for sending this to me.

Terrorist Leader In Somalia From "Sweet Home Alabama"

Al Qaeda-Linked American Terrorist Condemns, Mocks Obama in New Audio Tape

FOX News

An American who left the United States to join an Al Qaeda-linked group in Somalia is strongly condemning President Obama’s efforts to seek “a new beginning” with the Muslim world, mocking Obama's “magic of charisma” and warning of more attacks against U.S. interests.

“Despite the fact that you have been ... forced [by Muslim fighters] to at least pretend to extend your hand in peace to the Muslims, we cannot and shall not extend our hands,” said the man in the audiotape, identified by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) as Abu Mansour al-Amriki. “Rather, we shall extend to you our swords, until you leave our lands.”

The 20-minute audiotape, called "The Beginning of the End," was posted Thursday on several jihadist web sites as a direct response to Obama’s much-publicized speech in Cairo on June 4, when he promised “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.”

“Let this not come as a surprise to those who are mesmerized by Obama’s speech in Cairo, our positions ... have not changed in the least,” al-Amriki said, in the transcription provided by MEMRI. “If we study his words carefully, we can note very clearly that this new beginning is still heavily based upon American interests … [Obama spoke] not because he loves the Muslims he lived with in Indonesia, as a boy, but rather, it is because the only way to defeat the Muslims is by distracting them with this temporary life.”

Al-Amriki, speaking in English throughout the audio tape, also said Obama’s speechwriters made “one major miscalculation.”

“A Muslim doesn’t look to peace, security, education, work, or the love of any other number of things as his ultimate goals,” al-Amriki said. “Instead, a Muslim is always working and striving to please the one true Creator."

SHORT FREE VERSION - Abu Mansour "the American," a Shabab Al-Mujahideen Commander in Somalia, Slams President Obama for His Cairo Speech and Justifies 9/11

Click here to listen to the tape.

In his speech in June, Obama said he was seeking a relationship with the Muslim world “based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

“I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear,” he said at Cairo University. “But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America. Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire.”

But Obama also warned that Al Qaeda has “affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach.”

Somalia is one of those countries. An Al Qaeda-linked group known as al-Shabaab has been warring with the moderate Somali government since 2006, and the fighting has turned Somalia into a state of anarchy. U.S. officials say that if al-Shabaab prevails, Somalia could turn into a haven for Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

In the past year, scores — if not hundreds — of Muslims from several Western countries have left their homes to train and fight with al-Shabaab in Somalia. In fact, the FBI has been looking into how dozens of Somali-American men from the Minneapolis area were recruited to join al-Shabaab late last year. A grand jury in Minneapolis has been investigating the case for several months, and a series of indictments is expected to be announced soon.

Al-Amriki joined al-Shabaab before the new wave of recruits from Minneapolis. A law enforcement official told FOX News earlier this year that al-Amriki, described as in his late 20s or early 30s, is originally from the United States but has been in Somalia "for some time." It’s unclear what al-Amriki’s given name is.

His new audiotape is an attempt to recruit even more foreign fighters.

“As you have presented to us a new beginning, we reply by saying that by the permission of Allah, this beginning is ... the beginning of the end — the end of the tyranny and oppression so common to America,” al-Amriki said. “This is the cause of the entire Muslim [world], and it is being carried even by those who are considered legal citizens of your own country, according to your own laws.”

Al-Amriki also rejected Obama’s promise of a “change” from the previous administration.

“As far as your claims with regard to improving some of the policies of Bush,” al-Amriki said, “you are claiming that Guantanamo Bay will be closed down early next year. We won’t be satisfied until all the Guantanamos ... around the world have been closed, and all of the Muslim prisoners — male and female — have been released. You claim that you will fully pull out all of your troops from Iraq by 2012. We won’t be satisfied until you pull out all of your troops from all of the Muslim lands.”

In the audiotape, al-Amriki made no mention of recent U.S. assistance to the Somali government, perhaps helping U.S. authorities determine when the audiotape was made.

The U.S. government announced in late June that, for the past several weeks, it had been supplying the Somali government with weapons, military training and humanitarian aid.

"We are concerned [about Somalia]," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said at the time. He said the U.S. government hopes to help "repel the onslaught of extremist forces which are intent on ... spoiling efforts to bring peace and stability to Somalia.”

The new audiotape is al-Amriki's second high-profile message. In April, he showed his face for the first time in a 30-minute recruitment video posted online. The video was a highly polished production, featuring anti-American hip-hop and sporadic images of Usama bin Laden.

In the video, al-Amriki purportedly leads a group of al-Shabaab militants in an ambush of pro-government forces in Somalia.

Speaking about one man killed in the fight, al-Amriki said in the video, “We want to inform his family that he was one of the best brothers here. ... We need more like him, so if you can encourage more of your children and more of your neighbors, anyone around, to send people like him to this jihad it would be a great asset for us."


Wild Thing's comment.........

Find him and kill him. Or do it the PC way, arrest him, feed him 3 meals a day, water and soap for bathing and give him a court date where he can get cheered on by CAIR, and the ACLU, Code Pink and all the other LEFTY groups.
Then after his court appearance and he is found that he just had a tuff childhood or something. Send him to some resort island where he can live out his life drinking umbrella drinks laying on the beach bragging about how many infidels he wanted dead.

Or ho wait is he going to be another Obama CZAR?

Megyn Kelly Talks With Poster Boy for Term Limits Rep. Jerry Nadler


Kelly was talking with Nadler about former Vice-President Dick Cheney's criticism of Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama for going forward with investigations of Bush-era CIA operatives who interrogated terrorist suspects. Kelly was "educating" Nadler about the idea that CIA agents should be subjected to investigation when they were following legal advice at the time. She also educated him that Career Prosecutors at the Department of Justice looked into this five years ago and found nothing worthy of prosecution among the agents in question now.
Nadler said he was not aware of that investigation and Kelly said, "You're not?!" "Then let me just educate you."


Rep. Jerry Nadler talks with Megyn Kelly of Fox News about former Vice President Cheneys defense of torture and his criticism of Attorney General Holder for ordering a preliminary investigation into possible violations of law committed as part of the Bush administrations interrogation program.



The Hill

Attorney General Eric Holder should expand a special prosecutor's investigation into detainee abuse during the Bush administration to include high-ranking officials like Vice President Dick Cheney, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday.

Nadler defended Holder's decision last week to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the abuse and potential torture conducted by CIA officials during the Bush administration.

"My criticism of the attorney general is that he should not limit the investigation to people in the field who may have committed torture, but to people who may have ordered it, such as the vice president, for example," Nadler said during an interview on Fox News.

Obama 'czar' Van Jones on 9/11: Blamed 'U.S. imperialism' and Held a Vigil For Muslims!




Obama 'czar' on 9/11: Blame 'U.S. imperialism'!

White House 'rowdy communist' held vigil for Muslims

wnd

By Aaron Klein

One day after the 9/11 attacks, President Obama's "green jobs czar" led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of "U.S. imperialism" around the world.

WND previously reported Van Jones, special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation to the White House Council on Environmental Quality, is an admitted black nationalist and radical communist.

Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," has surfaced on the Internet.

A WND review of the 97-page treatise found a description of a vigil that Jones' group held Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif. The event drew hundreds and articulated an "anti-imperialist" line, according to STORM's own description.

The radical group's manual boasted the 9/11 vigil was held to express solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans and to mourn the civilians killed in the terrorist attacks "as well as the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world."
"We honored those who lost their lives in the attack and those who would surely lose their lives in subsequent U.S. attacks overseas," STORM's manifesto recalls.
Also, WND obtained a press release of Jones' vigil, dated Sept. 11, 2001, and titled, "People Of Color Groups Gather to Stand In Solidarity With Arab Americans and to Mourn the East Coast Dead."
"Anti-Arab hostility is already reaching a fever pitch as pundits and common people alike rush to judgment that an Arab group is responsible for this tragedy," stated Jones in the release hours after the 9/11 attacks.
"We fear that an atmosphere is being created that will result in official and street violence against Arab men, women and children," he said.

On Wednesday night, Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck drew attention to a section of STORM's
manual that describes Jones' organization as having a "commitment to the fundamental ideas
of Marxism-Leninism."


.

Glenn Beck exposes Color of Change co-founder Van Jones


"We agreed with Lenin's analysis of the state and the party," reads the manifesto. "And we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-tung and Amilcar Cabral."

Cabral is the late Marxist revolutionary leader of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands.

WND previously reported Jones named his son after Cabral and reportedly concludes every e-mail with a quote from the communist leader.

STORM's newsletter boasted "we also saw our brand of Marxism as, in some ways, a reclamation."

STORM worked with known communist leaders. It led the charge in black protests against various issues, including a local attempt to pass Proposition 21, a ballot initiative that sought to increase the penalties for violent crimes and require more juvenile offenders to be tried as adults.

Speaking to the East Bay Express, Jones said he first became radicalized in the wake of the 1992 Rodney King riots, during which time he was arrested.

"I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist.
"I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next 10 years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary," he said.

Trevor Loudon, a researcher and opponent of communism who runs the New Zeal blog, identified several Bay Area communists who worked with STORM, including Elizabeth Martinez, who helped advise Jones' Ella Baker Human Rights Center, which Jones founded to advocate civil justice. Jones and Martinez also attended a "Challenging White Supremacy" workshop together.

Martinez was a longtime Maoist who went on to join the Communist Party USA breakaway organization Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, or CCDS, in the early 1990s, according to Loudon. Martinez still serves on the CCDS council and is also a board member of the Movement for a Democratic Society, where she sits alongside former Weathermen radicals Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

STORM eventually fell apart amid bickering among its leaders.

Jones then moved on to environmentalism. He used his Ella Baker Center to advocate "inclusive" environmentalism and launch a Green-Collar Jobs Campaign, which led to the nation's first Green Jobs Corps in Oakland, Calif.

At the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, Jones announced the establishment of Green For All, which in 2008 held a national green conference in which most attendees were black. Jones also released a book, "The Green Collar Economy," which debuted at No.12 on the New York Times' bestseller list – the first environmental book written by an African American to make the list.

Jones, formerly a self-described "rowdy black nationalist," boasted in a 2005 interview with the left-leaning East Bay Express that his environmental activism was a means to fight for racial and class "justice."

Jones was president and founder of Green For All, a nonprofit organization that advocates building a so-called inclusive green economy.

Until recently, Jones was a longtime member of the board of Apollo Alliance, a coalition of labor, business, environmental and community leaders that claims on its website to be "working to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs."

Wild Thing's comment...........

Just imagine how the families of the 9/11 victims feel about this man being in a position of power to further his radical plans? How can we the people put a stop to these "czars" and the parallel government the current administration seems to be building?

This mockery of 9/11 makes me sick. It mocks the victims, the military, the first responders, the patriotic Americans who rallied in their country's hour of need

I am outraged!

The US is being controlled by the enemy.

The enemy is the anti president of USA. Who has is own agenda which is not the peoples. The problem we have is he already has his agenda deep into play. He has already set up his parallel government with what 49 czars who were hand picked and that report directly to him.... totally bypassing the senate. This is treasonous Obama and his people have nothing to do with the Constitution which calls for the peoples input. Everything he has done since he was sworn in has been unconstitutional!

And he took oath to uphold the constitution!! But then again the first time he took the oath he messed up and had to do it again in Chambers.

Muslims are encouraged to swear sacred oaths and then break them. Mohammed himself set the example, during the Hejirah. He swore a solemn treaty with the Jews of Medina, which he broke after it was no longer needed, and then he swore a solemn treaty with his enemies in Mecca and broke that, too, when it was no longer needed.

The President of Pakistan retold the story in his speech to the people when he signed the treaty with George Bush after 9/11. My take on what he said is that he was assuring them that it was necessary to make the deal with a stronger power, but that he would break his word like a good Muslim when the right time came.

The NY Times omitted that last five minutes of his speech from their transcript the next day, evidently thinking it was not important.

Detainees Shown CIA Officers' Photos!!





Detainees Shown CIA Officers' Photos


The Washington Post

By Peter Finn

Washington Post Staff Writer


The Justice Department recently questioned military defense attorneys at Guantanamo Bay about whether photographs of CIA personnel, including covert officers, were unlawfully provided to detainees charged with organizing the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

Investigators are looking into allegations that laws protecting classified information were breached when three lawyers showed their clients the photographs, the sources said. The lawyers were apparently attempting to identify CIA officers and contractors involved in the agency's interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects in facilities outside the United States, where the agency employed harsh techniques.

If detainees at the U.S. military prison in Cuba are tried, either in federal court or by a military commission, defense lawyers are expected to attempt to call CIA personnel to testify.

The photos were taken by researchers hired by the John Adams Project, a joint effort of the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, to support military counsel at Guantanamo Bay, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the inquiry. It was unclear whether the Justice Department is also examining those organizations.

Both groups have long said that they will zealously investigate the CIA's interrogation program at "black sites" worldwide as part of the defense of their clients. But government investigators are now looking into whether the defense team went too far by allegedly showing the detainees the photos of CIA officers, in some cases surreptitiously taken outside their homes.

If proved, the allegations would highlight how aggressively both military lawyers and their allies in the human rights community are moving to shed light on the CIA's interrogation practices and defend their clients. Defense attorneys, however, described the investigation as an attempt by the government to intimidate them into not exposing what happened to their clients.

When contacted about the investigation, the ACLU declined to discuss specifics.

"We are confident that no laws or regulations have been broken as we investigated the circumstances of the torture of our clients and as we have vigorously defended our clients' interests," said Anthony D. Romero, the group's executive director. "Rather than investigate the CIA officials who undertook the torture, they are now investigating the military lawyers who have courageously stepped up to defend these clients in these sham proceedings."

It is unclear whether the military lawyers under investigation identified the CIA personnel in the photographs to the al-Qaeda suspects or simply asked the detainees whether they had ever seen them. It is also unclear whether the inquiry involves violations of federal statutes prohibiting the identification of covert CIA officers or violations of military commission rules governing the disclosure of classified information, including to the defendants.

The investigation is being overseen by John Dion, head of the Justice Department's counter-espionage section, who has worked on many high-profile national security cases, including the prosecution of Aldrich H. Ames, the CIA mole who spied for the Soviet Union. The CIA reports security breaches to Dion's office. The Justice Department and the CIA declined to comment.

Air Force Col. Peter R. Masciola, chief military defense counsel at Guantanamo Bay, and his deputy, Michael J. Berrigan, also declined to comment.

The Washington Post could not determine how many and which CIA personnel were photographed, which photographs were shown to detainees, or when.

Romero said he does not know what laws the government thinks the military lawyers may have broken.

"That is the most vexing part of it," he said. "Usually when you're read your Miranda rights or visited by the Justice Department or the FBI, you are given some indication as to what laws are at stake."

The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers also declined to address the specifics of the inquiry but questioned its timing.

It is "customary in our experience that any kind of investigation like these are conducted after legal proceedings are finished in the case so as not to interfere with the defense function, not to interfere with the rights of defendants, not to give the appearance that the government is looking to chill the defense function," said Joshua L. Dratel, counsel for the John Adams Project and a former board member of the NACDL, who spoke on behalf of the group.
He added: "The lawyers have a duty to find out what happened to their clients, and to the extent that the government and certain agencies are resistant to that to protect themselves and to insulate themselves from accountability, there is a tension there, and to the extent that this investigation is part of that tension, it's most unfortunate. But the lawyers will not shirk their duty."

A wide variety of groups, including European investigators, human rights groups and news organizations, have compiled lists of people thought to have been involved in the CIA's program, including CIA station chiefs, agency interrogators and medical personnel who accompanied detainees on planes as they were moved from one secret location to another.

"It's a normal part of human rights research projects, and certainly in defense work, to compile lists of individuals who interacted with clients," Romero said.

Tracking international CIA-chartered flights, researchers have identified hotels in Europe where CIA personnel or contractors stayed. In some cases, through hotel phone records, they have been able to identify agency employees who jeopardized their cover by dialing numbers in the United States. Working from these lists, some of which include up to 45 names, researchers photographed agency workers and obtained other photos from public records, the sources said.

The government has largely cut off the airing of details about the CIA's interrogation program during proceedings at Guantanamo Bay, although many have been revealed in government documents.

At the courthouse at the prison, a court security officer, who is thought be in contact with CIA officials, can cut off the audio feed to the public gallery if there is any possibility of lawyers or defendants discussing CIA detention. At a hearing in July, the audio feed was cut when a lawyer for Ramzi Binalshibh, one of the alleged Sept. 11 conspirators, mentioned sleep deprivation, one of the "enhanced interrogation techniques" used at the CIA's black sites.

Obama and Eric Holder to Probe CIA Abuse and Criminal Investigation Treatment of Detainees

Holder to Appoint Special Prosecutor to Probe Terror Suspect Interrogations

The decision comes as the Department of Justice releases a 2004 report from the CIA's inspector general detailing allegations of harsh interrogation practices.

FOX news

After months of consideration, Attorney General Eric Holder plans to appoint a special prosecutor to examine allegations that terror suspects were abused at the hands of their CIA interrogators.

The highly controversial decision comes as the Department of Justice releases a 2004 report from the CIA's inspector general detailing allegations of harsh interrogation practices -- which Holder cited in his decision.

"As a result of my analysis of all of this material, I have concluded that the information known to me warrants opening a preliminary review into whether federal laws were violated in connection with the interrogation of specific detainees at overseas locations," Holder said in a written statement Monday.

The newly-released document claims one interrogator said a colleague once told Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that if any other attacks happened in the United States, "We're going to kill your children."

Another interrogator allegedly tried to convince a different terror suspect detainee that his mother would be sexually assaulted in front of him -- though the interrogator in question denied making such a threat.

Several details in the review had already been reported, such as the alleged use of mock executions and other tactics to scare detainees.

The report said interrogators threatened Abd al-Nashiri, the alleged planner of the 2000 USS Cole bombing, by holding a power drill and handgun to his head. The report said they also staged a fake execution by having CIA officers and guards scream and yell in an adjacent cell and then leading the detainee past a hooded, motionless guard -- who was lying on the floor and made to look like he had been shot.

Holder had reportedly reacted with disgust when he first read accounts in the classified version of the IG report -- a reaction that likely contributed to his decision to appoint a prosecutor.

Holder said in his statement Monday that a "preliminary review" of such cases is the "only responsible course of action" for him to take.

Justice Department prosecutor John Durham will be named for the job.

Holder's move would reverse the policy of the Bush administration and could expose CIA employees and agency contractors to criminal prosecution for the alleged mistreatment of terror suspects in the years after the Sept. 11 attacks.

It would also run counter to President Obama's stated wishes to leave the issue in the past. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs reiterated that view in a brief statement Monday.

"The president has said repeatedly that he wants to look forward, not back," Gibbs said, adding that those who acted in good faith should not be prosecuted. "Ultimately, determinations about whether someone broke the law are made independently by the attorney general."

But Holder stressed that the review is not yet a full investigation, and that even a full-scale probe does not mean charges are in order.

The attorney general noted the controversy the decision is sure to generate but said it should not be taken as a blanket criticism of the U.S. intelligence community. He said those who acted in the scope of the legal guidance provided to them will be safe from prosecution.

"I fully realize that my decision to commence this preliminary review will be controversial," Holder said. "As attorney general, my duty is to examine the facts and to follow the law. In this case, given all of the information currently available, it is clear to me that this review is the only responsible course of action for me to take."

Prior to Holder's decision, the Justice Department's ethics office had recommended that a number of alleged CIA prisoner-abuse cases that were closed under the Bush administration be reopened.

The Washington Post reported that up to a dozen cases could now be examined.

In a memo to the agency Monday morning, CIA Director Leon Panetta urged his staff to stay focused in the face of the "politicized" debate the report is expected to stir up, and defended the way the agency has handled allegations of abuse over the past several years.
"This is in many ways an old story," Panetta wrote, saying many of the techniques have already been made public. He wrote that the CIA obtained intelligence from high-value detainees "when inside information on Al Qaeda was in short supply," and that his role now is to "stand up" for officers who followed the legal guidance given to them.

Parts of the report suggest the intelligence gleaned through the enhanced interrogations was invaluable -- but it also is not clear whether that intelligence could have been extracted through more conventional interrogation methods.

According to a memo by an unknown author included at the end of the report, the program was considered an "absolute success."

The memo said detainees provided information that led to the arrest of other terrorists and revealed a number of terrorist plots -- including a planned attack on the U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan; a plot to derail a train; a plot to blow up several gas stations; and a plot to attack the tallest building in California.

A federal judge had ordered the IG report made public Monday, in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Both the report and the announcement of a probe drew split reactions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Democrats like Sen. Patrick Leahy, Vt., said the report showed "clear evidence" interrogators overstepped their bounds. Republicans like Rep. Pete Hoekstra, Mich., said the probe "risks disrupting CIA counterterrorism initiatives."

In another development, Obama signed off on setting up a special interrogation team that would be placed at the FBI but report directly to the White House-based National Security Council.

Though such work typically falls to the CIA, one senior U.S. official told FOX News that the CIA did not want to house the new initiative.

"They're glad to be out of the long-term detention business," the official said.

The unit's structure would depart significantly from such work under the Bush administration, when the CIA had the lead and sometimes exclusive role in questioning Al Qaeda suspects.



RUSH:
Let me tell you, all this is, and I'll tell you what it means, I really think this means that the public option in health care is dead. If it's not dead, it is dying, it is close. Republicans and Conservatives helped a lot. But also this. What's happened is, and remember I told you last week when I was in Los Angeles I spent a lot of time on these kook websites, like the Democrat Underground, the Daily Kos. These lunatics are just livid over the failure of the public option. They are livid that the White House floated a trial balloon via Kathleen Sebelius, the public option was not crucial, they were livid that Obama then backed it up and then of course they reversed the trial balloon, oh, no, the public option we can't go forward without it and a bunch of Democrats went out there, Pelosi and so forth said so. But they're losing their base on this. They're really at each other's throats.

The CIA stuff, this new interrogation, all it is, I'm telling you, trust me, don't doubt me, all this is is an attempt to get these people back in gear because they hate the whole idea of an imperial US military more than they want the public option. They want Al-Qaeda to be portrayed as the good guys. They want the Taliban to be portrayed as the good guys. They want the US to be portrayed as the bad guys. Now, Obama and his team think that their position on Bush, Iraq, Afghanistan is a large factor in their election victory in 2008. They are mistaken about that, but that's what they believe and so they're changing the subject. They're changing the subject from the debacle that health care has become; they're changing the subject from the fact the public option is in big trouble, and they're trying to rally the base now with a golden oldie, something from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites. I mean Afghanistan and Iraq are Obama's problem now, but they're trying to go back, once again, and revive this notion that America was a torturing nation and that we're not going to torture anymore.

I think this is an act of desperation, it is an attempt to change the subject, it's an attempt to get his base back on his side again because they know -- and I think this is true, it's frightening, but it is true -- the Democrat base, the far left radical lunatic fringe base, cares more about this country being humiliated militarily, foreign policy-wise, than they care about the public option. Obama's gotta get 'em on his side. This CIA stuff, I mean pulling it out of a hat, what the hell is the deal here? He's going to close Gitmo anyway, what are we talking about interrogation techniques? He's already told Holder, the attorney general, to process a new policy that interrogation will also feature Miranda rights, that when we carpet these clowns in the battlefield they gotta be read their Miranda rights, they're going to be given access to the US Constitution as criminals, not enemy combatants or prisoners of war. Why bring this all back? It's pure politics, it's nothing but a golden oldie and it shows how out of step they are.

This is all part and parcel of the campaign mode with Obama trying to get that base back.

This is all about getting his base back, and it's all about destroying United States national security in the process!!

Wild Thing's comment...........

Headline should be :Obama Attorney General ready to launch war against our own intelligence services

This is a back door way to get at President Bush and Vice President Cheney. In addition, it will further destroy the CIA. The enemies of our nation are celebrating this move and the terrorists must be cheering for Obama and Holden as these two help the terrorists do their work to destroy our country and our security.


Also maybe this too, the purpose of this is to keep claimed transgressions of the Bush administration front and center in peoples’ minds so that the ostammer shell game “Don’t look here......look there” can continue. When things are going badly, change the subject back to somebody you can bash and ridicule with impunity, such as the CIA activities under the Bush administration. The media will definitely run with this because for them it will be like getting another big bite at Abu Ghraib. It will dominate the media and death care and cap ‘n hoax will quietly slip under the radar and be passed. With ostammer starting to tank, they have to do something to take the focus off him.


Now is a good time for the CIA to get ahold of Obama's genuine birth certificate and school records released to the public.

Obama Ignored National Day of Prayer BUT He Gives 5 Minute Ramadan Blessing




Ramadan Kareem

The Freaking Obama White House website

Posted by Rashad Hussain

As the new crescent moon ushers in Ramadan, the President extends his best wishes to Muslim communities in the United States and around the world.
Each Ramadan, the ninth month on the lunar calendar, Muslims fast daily from dawn to sunset for 29 or 30 days. Fasting is a tradition in many religious faiths and is meant to increase spirituality, discipline, thankfulness, and consciousness of God's mercy. Ramadan is also a time of giving and reaching out to those less fortunate, and this summer, American Muslims have joined their fellow citizens in serving communities across the country. Over the course of the month, we will highlight the perspectives of various faiths on fasting and profile faith-based organizations making real impacts in American cities and towns.
This month is also a time of renewal and this marks the first Ramadan since the President outlined his vision for a new beginning between America and the Muslim world. As a part of that new beginning, the President emphasizes that our relationship with Muslim communities cannot be based on political and security concerns alone. True partnerships also require cooperation in all areas – particularly those that can make a positive difference in peoples’ daily lives, including education, science and technology, health, and entrepreneurship - fields in which Muslim communities have helped play a pioneering role throughout history.
The President's message is part of an on-going dialogue with Muslim communities that began on inauguration day and has continued with his statement on Nowruz, during trips to Ankara and Cairo, and with interviews with media outlets such as Al Arabiya and Dawn TV.
As this dialogue continues and leads to concrete actions, the President extends his greetings on behalf of the American people.



Obama Wishes 'Ramadan Kareem' to Muslims

Washington Post

Obama released videotaped Ramadan wishes Friday, sending "best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world" and wishing them "Ramadan Kareem" on "behalf of the American people, including Muslim communities in all 50 states."

~snipet~

The president makes sure to mention "my own Christian faith" and the values shared by Islam and Christianity when it comes to service, even as he speaks of Muslim ceremonies he knows well.

He also recapitulates his basic foreign policy positions involving Muslim nations. "We're also committed to keeping our responsibility to build a world that is more peaceful and secure. That's why we're responsibly ending the war in Iraq," he says, adding, "That is why we strongly and actively support a two-state solution that recognizes the rights of Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security. That is also why America will always stand for the universal rights of all people."
"I want to reiterate my commitment to a new beginning between America and Muslims around the world," he continues, emphasizing his Cairo message of seeking common ground and that "an important part of this is listening."

The president lays out collaborations with international health authorities to eradicate polio in Muslim-majority nations, and to mitigate H1N1 flu transmission risks during the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca by devout Muslims which this year will fall at the end of November.

"May God's peace be upon you," he concludes.

Translations of his Ramadan message are provided on the White House Web site in Arabic, Bengali, Dari, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Pashto, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish and Urdu.

Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.

Wild Thing's comment..........

"As this dialogue continues and leads to concrete actions, the President extends his greetings on behalf of the American people. "

Speak for yourself asshole Obama. You are NOT speaking on behalf of a lot of Americans.....and I am one of them.

There are NO values shared by Islam and Christianity. Islam teaches to kill the people of the book ( Jews and Christians) ....so that one point alone proves the two ( Islam and Christianity) have nothing in common.

"fields in which Muslim communities have helped play a pioneering role throughout history"


LMAO oh sure, let's see tell me how Muslims have given anything to the world other then death and destruction. No car manufacturing, inventions, scientific break through, and the list could go on and on. They GIVE nothing only take and taking lives with their suicide bombers in Israel and other countries.

On what planet is Obama's version of Islam practiced??!! Sheesh! Obama is an idiot!!!

From Obama's Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Convicted Terrorist of Bombing Pan Am Flight 103 Released



Terrorist Celebrated in Libya

The terrorist convicted of taking part in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 was released from prison by Scotland. Randall Pinkston reports on the controversial greeting he received in Libya.



Anger at Lockerbie Bomber, Abdel Basset al-Megrahi Welcome


Relatives of those who died in the bombing of a US plane over Lockerbie voiced anger as the man convicted of the attack was welcomed home in Libya.

Crowds in Tripoli greeted Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, after he was freed from prison on compassionate grounds. The son of Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi called his release a courageous step by Scotland and Britain. But there was angry reaction from families of those killed in the bombing.

Most of the 270 people who died when Pan Am Flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie in 1988 were Americans.

Mr Obama said Megrahi's release, eight years into his life sentence, was "a mistake".

Megrahi, who had changed from tracksuit he wore to leave Greenock prison in Scotland into a dark suit, was met by Col Gaddafi's son. "I would like to thank the Scottish government for its courageous decision and understanding of a special human situation," Seif al-Islam Gaddafi was quoted as saying. There was a considerable amount of new evidence to show that he was innocent, he is reported to have added. Megrahi was then taken to his family home where his wife, Aisha, said she was "overjoyed".

"It is a great moment, which we have been waiting for for nine years," she said. "The house is full to bursting, everyone who loves Abdelbaset is with us." 'An insult'

But relatives of those who died voiced growing anger and outrage at the decision to release him.

Obama Reaches Out to Pakistani Jihadists



Obama reaches out to Pakistani jihadists

by Adam Entous

ISLAMABAD

Reuters

U.S. President Barack Obama has started reaching out to some of Pakistan's most fervent Islamist and anti-American parties, including one that helped give rise to the Taliban, trying to improve Washington's image in the nuclear-armed state.

Obama's special envoy, Richard Holbrooke, is initiating dialogue between the United States and religious parties previous administrations had largely shunned, both sides said.

"The purpose is to broaden the base of American relations in Pakistan beyond the relatively narrow circle of leaders Washington has previously dealt with," explained Vali Nasr, senior adviser to Holbrooke.
John Bolton, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during the Bush presidency, questioned Holbrooke's timing for trying to engage Taliban sympathizers on the eve of elections in neighboring Afghanistan, where U.S. forces are battling the hardline Islamic group.
"As a general proposition, democracy in Pakistan is fragile enough now that negotiating with people that some on the democratic side of the Pakistani spectrum would think themselves are terrorists strikes me as fairly risky," Bolton said.
"What we ought to be doing is making sure that our ties with the military are strong because the gravest risk is radical penetration of the military."

This outreach has only made the jihadists more demanding:

At one of this week's sessions, Liaqat Baloch, a top member of the religious, right-wing Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) party, told Holbrooke he welcomed the new administration's public change in tone toward Muslims around the world.
But Baloch said he was disturbed to see "no change in practice" in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where Obama has stepped up military operations against the Taliban on both sides of the border.

Holbrooke invited Jamaat-e-Islami, whom some U.S. officials compare to the banned Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, to visit the heavily guarded American embassy compound in Islamabad, seeking to dispel long-running rumors that thousands of U.S. Marines would be based there.

"NEW ERA"

Holbrooke rejected the party's complaints about a Western "assault" on Islam, saying "that could not be further from the truth" with Obama, who has roots in the religion, now in the White House.

Fazl-ur-Rehman, whose Jamiat-e-ulema-e-Islam party was active in rousing support for the Taliban in 1990s, also got an audience with Holbrooke and his team.

Rehman denies al Qaeda's responsibility for the September 11, 2001, attacks, and once warned that if U.S. forces invaded Afghanistan, no American in Pakistan would be safe.

In more recent years, however, Rehman's relationship with the Taliban has grown uneasy, and he has publicly supported negotiations between the U.S.-backed government in Kabul and the Islamist group.

"His hands aren't exactly clean," Lisa Curtis of the Heritage Foundation said of Rehman. "He is associated with the Taliban."



Wild Thing's comment.....

As usual, Bolton is right!

Obama has already kicked India in the teeth and now he wants to undercut the few rational minds there are left in Pakistan. And Obama could care less about our troops in Afghanistan.

Islamic Supremacist Group Holds First U.S. Conference

FOX News

A group committed to establishing an international Islamic empire and reportedly linked to Al Qaeda is stepping up its Western recruitment efforts by holding its first official conference in the U.S.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a global Sunni network with reported ties to confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Al Qaeda in Iraq's onetime leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It has operated discreetly in the U.S. for decades.

Now, it is coming out of the shadows and openly hosting a July 19 conference entitled, "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam," at a posh Hilton hotel in a suburb of Chicago.

Hizb ut-Tahrir insists that it does not engage in terrorism, and it is not recognized by the State Department as a known terror group.

But some terrorism experts say it may be even more dangerous than many groups that are on the terror list.

"Hizb ut-Tahrir is one of the oldest, largest indoctrinating organizations for the ideology known as jihadism," Walid Phares, director of the Future of Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told FOXNews.com.
Phares said that Hizb ut-Tahrir, rather than training members to carry out terrorist acts like Al Qaeda, focuses instead on indoctrinating youths between ages of 9 and 18 to absorb the ideology that calls for the formation of an empire — or "khilafah" — that will rule according to Islamic law and condones any means to achieve it, including militant jihad.
Hizb ut-Tahrir often says that its indoctrination "prepares the infantry" that groups like Al Qaeda take into battle, Phares said.
"It's like a middle school that prepares them to be recruited by the high school, which is Al Qaeda," he said. "One would compare them to Hitler youth. ... It's an extremely dangerous organization."
Phares said Hizb ut-Tahrir has strongholds in Western countries, including Britain, France and Spain, and clearly is looking to strengthen its base in the U.S.
"The aim of this conference is to recruit within the Muslim community in America," he said. "The Middle East governments go after them, but in the U.S. they are protected, so having a base here is going to help their cells around the world."

Representatives of Hizb ut-Tahrir declined to comment when contacted by FOXNews.com.

Oren Segal, director of Islamic Affairs for the Anti-Defamation League, said the conference is cause for concern.

"While they're not, for the most part, engaging in violent activities, and they publicly say that they're against violence, there have been examples around the world where people who have spun off of this group have engaged in violent activity," Segal told FOXNews.com. "That's why they're banned in several Arab and Central Asian countries, as well as Germany and Russia."

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is one of the group's most famous alumni, New Statesman journalist Shiv Malik reported, citing intelligence sources. In addition to plotting the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he also is implicated in the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, the Bali nightclub bombings and the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

Malik's report, the public policy institute the Nixon Center and the counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation agree that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq until he was killed in June 2006, also was once a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

They say other former members include Asif Muhammad Hanif, a British man who blew himself up outside a bar in Tel Aviv, killing four people (including himself) and wounding more than 50; and Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric currently banned from Britain who praised the 9/11 attacks, raised funds for Hezbollah and Hamas and called for attacks on the Dublin airport because U.S. troops transfered there on their way to Iraq.

Segal said Hizb ut-Tahrir is becoming more active online in the U.S. — particularly on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace — and now it may be able to add a significant number of Americans to its ranks.

But one place the group will likely not be recruiting is a local Islamic school that backed out of hosting the conference.

The non-profit Aqsa school in Bridgeview said Hizb ut-Tahrir had deceptively portrayed the conference as a bazaar-type event where traditional food and clothing would be sold.

"They misrepresented themselves and the event. We don't want to be in the middle of something like that," the school's business manager Rana Jaber, told CBS News.

The conference's new venue doesn't seem to mind.

Hilton Oak Lawn General Manager Rick Harmon said Hizb ut-Tahrir used its own name when it reserved the room for the conference, but the hotel was not aware of the content of the event, which includes lectures entitled "Capitalism is Doomed to Fail," "The Global Rise of Islam," and the "Role of Muslims in America," until after the contract was signed.

Still, Harmon said the hotel is open to all kinds of meetings, that don't necessarily reflect its position or beliefs.

"We're United States citizens and an American business — if it's legal, we're able to host it, as long as it's nothing that disrupts our other guests' privacy and security," Harmon told FOXNews.com.
"Hizb-ut-Tahrir is convinced that change must start in the minds of people, and therefore does not accept for people, or societies, to be forced to change by means of violence and terror," it reads.

The site, which includes a promotional YouTube video, says the group "does not work in the West to change the system of government, but works to project a positive image of Islam to Western society."

But former member Ishtiaq Hussain said Hizb ut-Tahrir is repackaging itself as a moderate organization as a tactic, while in reality it is "extremist."

"They don't recognize countries like Israel, for example; they don’t believe Israel should exist," Hussain, now a trainer for the Quilliam Foundation, told FOXNews.com. "Some of their leaders have denied the Holocaust, and they believe homosexuals should be thrown off the highest building. ... It's actually a very dangerous group."

Hizb ut-Tahrir itself has also published writings that seem to contradict its tenet of non-violence.

In his book, "How the Khilafah Was Destroyed," Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zalloom, the former global leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir, says anyone who rules by a non-Islamic system should "either retract or be killed ... even if this led to several years of fighting and even if it led to the killing of millions of Muslims and to the martyrdom of millions of believers."

Hizb ut-Tahrir's official ruling on the permissibility of hijacking planes says, "If the plane belongs to a country at war with Muslims, like Israel, it is allowed to hijack it, for there is no sanctity for Israel nor for the Jews in it.

And one of the organization's more recent leaflets, published in March, calls for the declaration of "a state of war against America."

But, despite these threats and calls to action, Hizb ut-Tahrir remains off the State Department's terror watch list, and it is free to host the Khilafah Conference and any other event like it.

"In other parts of the world where they're really very active, they've drawn tens of thousands of people to some of their events," Segal said.


Hizb ut Tahrir is one of the most radical groups operating in the world today and is an offshoot of Al Muhajiroun, whose leader Omar Bakri Mohammed broke away from HT to form what became AM. To permit Hizb ut Tahrir to hold a conference openly calling for the implementation of the Khalifate in the world is a travesty on the war on terror and will only attract those who will follow in the footsteps of the London bombers.( from a UK site when they had their conference in August of 2005)


Palestinian Authority prevents HT's Conference & arrests 100s in servitude to Islam's enemies

From Hizb ut-Tahrir Palestine's Media Office:

The Palestinian Authority (PA) prevented the Khilafah conference organised by Hizb-ut-Tahrir Palestine on the 04/07/2009 in Ramallah and arrests hundreds of activists of the hizb in servitude to the enemies of Islam.

From dawn, the security services started to set up check points around the city and occupied the school where the conference was due to take place. Hundreds of people were arrested, and some beaten up randomly and the city was effectively turned into a military base.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Of course I have not seen this story on ABC, CBS, NBC or CNN .

"despite these threats and calls to action, Hizb ut-Tahrir remains off the State Department's terror watch list"

And with Obama as president they probably never will be on the terror watch list.

“Hizb ut-Tahrir is one of the oldest, largest indoctrinating organizations for the ideology known as jihadism,” Walid Phares, director of the Future of Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told FOXNews.com.

“It’s like a middle school that prepares them to be recruited by the high school, which is Al Qaeda,” he said. “One would compare them to Hitler youth. ... It’s an extremely dangerous organization.”

I am so glad Walid Phares is speaking out about this group, he is excellent.

This Islamist organization which has emerged fully in the United States since the election of Obama.

Senator Inhofe One of the Good Guys Has a Petition To STOP the Transfer of Terrorist Detainees From Gitmo



HERE IS THE PETITION



From the Office of Senator James Inhofe (R-OK):


Today, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a Senior Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, posted on his website a petition opposing the transfers of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GITMO) to the United States.

The petition is also in support of Inhofe’s amendment, S.Amdt.1559, to the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2010 (S.1390), which prohibits the transfer of detainees from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to any facility in the United States. In a YouTube video, Inhofe invited Americans to sign the petition and he promised to show the petition to his fellow Senators before they vote on this important legislation.

“By more than a 3 to 1 margin, Americans are opposed to detainees being transferred to their home states. And to date, the views of the American people have not changed,” Inhofe said. “Regardless, the administration is committed to fulfilling its political campaign promise to close GITMO, even though President Obama has yet to visit the facility for himself.
“Right now we have an opportunity to stop the President from bringing terrorists to American soil. My amendment will do just that, but I need you to weigh in. By signing this petition, you are telling the Senate and the President that it is unacceptable to house terrorists in your home states. I will make sure that my Senate Colleagues see these petitions and that they are aware of your opposition before they vote on this very important legislation.”



PETITION

I am one of the many Americans that does not support the transfer of detainees from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to the United States. I believe transferring terrorist detainees to the United States threatens our national security and could afford these terrorists with constitutional rights reserved for U.S. citizens – risks the U.S. should not be willing to take.

There are a majority of Americans that stand by me: a recent USA Today/Gallup Poll reported that by more than 2 to 1, Americans say the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility should not be closed and by more than 3 to 1, Americans oppose moving some of the accused terrorists to prisons in their own states. In addition, 27 states have passed measures that would prevent detainees from being sent to their states. These numbers should not be ignored.

Because of my position on closing GITMO, I support Senator Inhofe's amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 that prevents the Obama administration from transferring terrorist detainees to the United States. I hope you will support this amendment as well.


"It's not often a senator takes the time to reach out to the blogosphere. Please take a minute to support Senator Inhofe on this very important issue. Gateway"




Wild Thing's comment.........

Thank you Senator Inhofe for doing this. I agree 100% that we need to keep the prisoners at GITMO.

Haqqani Network In Afghanistan





Haqqani network, the most deadly US foe in Afghanistan

By Anand Gopal

GARDEZ, AFGHANISTAN

Sitting in an open field, three Taliban-allied insurgents carefully pore over a map of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

"This is where we will be staying," one says, pointing.

In the next scene from this insurgent propaganda video, one fighter shows the others a video of an empty room with a window. "You will shoot at Karzai from this window," he explains to the others. "We have people on the inside who will help you."

The assassination attempt on President Hamid Karzai, which took place in April 2008 during a military parade, nearly succeeded. The president escaped, but three people died.

The fighters in this video had detailed intelligence of the area. They knew how to slip by police checkpoints, and they had people in the Afghan government telling them exactly where Mr. Karzai would be standing on the parade ground.

Afghan insurgents often film their operations from start to finish, edit the result, and release it as a propaganda video. This video was purchased in Quetta, Pakistan.

Afghan intelligence officials have identified one of the three men in the video as part of the assassination team.

All are members of Afghanistan's most lethal group, the Haqqani network, a shadowy outfit that many officials consider to be the biggest threat to the American presence in the country.

"The Haqqani network has proven itself to be the most capable [of the insurgent groups], able to conduct spectacular attacks inside Afghanistan," says Matthew DuPee, researcher at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif.

The network, which is independent of (but allied with) the Taliban, showed its mettle again on May 12, when nearly a dozen fighters stormed government buildings in Afghanistan's southeastern city of Khost. The coordinated attack featured multiple suicide bombers and was one of the most brazen to take place in the city in years.

The Haqqani network is considered the most sophisticated of Afghanistan's insurgent groups. The group is alleged to be behind many high-profile assaults, including a raid on a luxury hotel in Kabul in January 2008 and a massive car bombing of the Indian Embassy in Kabul that left 41 people dead in July 2008.

The group is active in Afghanistan's southeastern provinces – Paktia, Paktika, Khost, Logar, and Ghazni. In parts of Paktika, Khost, and Paktia, they have established parallel governments and control the countryside of many districts. "In Khost, government officials need letters from Haqqani just to move about on the roads in the districts," says Hanif Shah Husseini, a parliamentarian from Khost.

The leadership, according to US and Afghan sources, is based near Miramshah, North Waziristan, in the Pakistani tribal areas. Pakistani authorities and leading Haqqani figures deny this, although former Haqqani fighters say this is indeed the case.

The network is better connected to Pakistani intelligence and Arab jihadist groups than any other Afghan insurgent group, according to American intelligence officials.

These links go back a long way. It was here – in the dusty mountains of Paktia Province, near the Pakistani border – that the group's putative leader, Jalaluddin Haqqani, first rose to fame. Born into an influential clan of the Zadran tribe, Mr. Haqqani morphed into a legendary war hero for his exploits against the Russians in the 1980s. Many in the southeastern provinces of the country fondly recall his name, even those who are now in the government.

"He is a virtuous and noble man, with an unwavering belief in Islam," says Hanif Shah Hosseini, a member of the Afghan parliament from Khost. He is one of Haqqani's childhood friends.
Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson, who worked closely with the anti-Soviet insurgency (inspiring the 2007 Tom Hanks film "Charlie Wilson's War"), once called Haqqani "goodness personified."
In the 1980s, Haqqani quickly established himself as one of the preeminent field commanders. "He could kill Russians like you wouldn't believe," says one US intelligence officer who knew him at the time. The Central Intelligence Agency forged close links with him, and through the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency funneled large amounts of weapons and cash his way.

Unlike many commanders, Haqqani was often in the line of fire himself and would at times retreat to Saudi Arabia to convalesce from his wounds. It is believed that his trips to the Gulf helped him forge close links with Arab militants, and he became one of the first Afghan commanders to host foreign fighters. His ties with Arab fighters and Al Qaeda continue to this day, say US and Afghan military officials.

Although he joined the Taliban government in the mid-1990s, Haqqani was never formally part of the Taliban movement. "The Taliban wanted to create an Islamic emirate, but Haqqani favored an Islamic republic," claims Maulavi Saadullah, who was a close friend at the time.

"During those years, [Haqqani's son] Siraj used to complain to me about how heavy-handed and dogmatic the Taliban were in their interpretation of Islam," recalls Waheed Muzjda, an Afghan-based policy analyst who knew the family.

Still, the Taliban saw Haqqani's usefulness as a commander and enlisted him in the fight against the Northern Alliance. On the eve of the American invasion in October 2001, Haqqani was named the head commander for all of the Taliban forces.

But for a few months after the US-led coalition invaded Afghanistan, Haqqani was on the fence as to whether to join the new Afghan government or fight against it, according to those who knew him at the time. A series of American bombing raids killed members of Haqqani's family, and he disappeared across the Pakistani border, telling friends that "the Americans won't let me live in peace," according to Mr. Saadullah. American officials, however, countered that he was abetting Al Qaeda fighters in their escape from Afghanistan into Pakistan and was not a neutral figure.

During the early years of the current Afghan war, Haqqani was merely one Taliban commander among many. But his close ties with Pakistan's ISI and Arab militants enabled him to raise funds and build training camps. Soon he was able to fight independently against the Americans, without help from the Taliban leadership. By 2007 his network had emerged as a distinct insurgent group.

Haqqani's son Sirajuddin has now taken the reins of the organization, according to intelligence officials. The younger Haqqani has proved more dynamic than his father, expanding the network greatly in the last few years. "He is not content with his father's methods," says one US intelligence officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "He's a lot more worldly than his father."

Sirajuddin took credit for planning the assassination attempt on the Afghan president in a rare interview with NBC News in July 2008.

The father has been reported to be dead, ailing, or incapacitated in some way. He last appeared in a March 2008 propaganda video of another insurgent attack.

Unlike most of the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network often works closely with foreign militant groups. For instance, the Islamic Jihad Union, an Uzbek militant group, reportedly has ties to the Haqqanis. The IJU brings militants from as far afield as Turkey to conduct attacks in Afghanistan. They are also allegedly behind plots to attack targets in Europe.

The Haqqani network also works more closely with the Pakistani Taliban than other Afghan insurgent groups.


The Haqqanis pioneered the use of suicide attacks in Afghanistan, an import from Al Qaeda in Iraq. Haqqani attacks are more likely to use foreign bombers, whereas Afghan Taliban attacks tend to rely on locals. The suicide attacks are an innovation of Sirajuddin's, according to US intelligence officials.

In addition to suicide attacks, the Haqqanis are known for their well-orchestrated attacks. US intelligence officials and Haqqani insiders say that this is largely a result of close cooperation with the Pakistani ISI – something Pakistani officials have denied.
Every major attack "is planned in detail with the ISI in camps in Waziristan," says one former Haqqani commander, who declined to be named for fear of retribution. Officials say the Haqqanis use money from Al Qaeda-linked sources, and also possibly from timber smuggling, to finance their operations.
"The majority of Haqqani fighters are young," says the former Haqqani commander, "and their fathers had fought for Haqqani during the Russian jihad." Many joined after the Afghan government and the Americans failed to live up to their promises, he adds.

Here in Paktia Province, the Haqqani network is so extensive that some subcommanders have emerged as nearly distinct threats in their own right. For instance, longtime commander Saif Rahman Mansour, who had been fighting under Haqqani's banner, has been operating more independently of late, Afghan government officials say.

Wild Thing's comment......

Our troops have been hitting this terrorist group hard over the last month especially.


From The Long War Journal this is very concerning.

"The Haqqani Network: The Haqqani Network is run by Jalaluddin and his son Sirajuddin. It operates both in Pakistan and across the border in eastern Afghanistan, primarily in the provinces of Khost, Paktika, and Paktia. The network is responsible for some of the most deadly attacks in Afghanistan, and has the backing of Pakistan's military and intelligence services."

Terrorists Behead Polish Engineer Piotr Stanczak's Refusal to Convert To Islam




.




Given the opportunity by his devout kidnappers to avoid beheading by converting to Islam, engineer Piotr Stanczak chose death.


Polish engineer's refusal to convert costs him his life

Hindustan Times

Piotr Stanczak did not exhibit the slightest hint of hesitation when the Pakistani Taliban asked him to choose between execution and conversion to Islam.

Whether the Polish geologist acted out of pride or religious conviction, he decided to pay through his blood to save his faith, a choice that bewildered his killers and keep them talking about him with respect after his murder.

Stanczak, 42, was kidnapped Sep 28 on his way to survey for oil exploration in Attock district, of Pakistan's eastern province of Punjab. The kidnappers also killed his driver and two guards. Militants released a gruesome seven-minute video in early February showing his beheading. One of the murderers blamed the Pakistani government which failed to accept their demands for the release of detained militants.

Warsaw reacted angrily, slammed Islamabad's "apathy" in tackling terrorism and offering a 1 million zloty ($300,000) reward for information leading to the capture of the Taliban militants who beheaded Stanczak.

Among the militants whose release was sought by the Taliban was Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a British-Pakistani who was sentenced to death for the 2002 abduction and murder of US journalist Daniel Pearl.

When negotiations between the representatives of the Pakistani government and the hostage-takers failed, the Taliban leadership gave the Polish man a last chance to save himself, Stanczak's captors revealed to another hostage, a Pakistani man Mohammad Amir.

Amir - a pseudonym as he asked for anonymity to avoid possible repercussions - was released recently after his family paid 1 million rupees ($25,000) to agents of Taliban commander Tariq Afridi.

Afridi heads a small group of Taliban in the Orakzai tribal district and is loyal to Baitullah Mehsud, the chief of local Taliban who has a $5 million bounty on his head for being an Al Qaeda facilitator. Pakistani troops have recently been ordered to take decisive action against Mehsud.

In an interview with DPA in Attock, Amir said he was kept in the same cell where Stanczak was held for a month before the Polish man was decapitated. Amir said Taliban soldiers guarding the two-storey prison building in South Waziristan, a lawless tribal district bordering Afghanistan, frequently chatted with him and one day they mentioned the abduction and killing of Stanczak.

"Our people were keeping an eye on his (Stanczak) movements for several months. We were expecting that we could exchange some of our mujahideen in the government's custody for him," Amir quoted a guard as saying.

Because Stanczak was a high-profile target, the Taliban made extensive preparations to kidnap and shift him to a safe place from Attock, some 100 km from Islamabad.

"You know the Indus river lies between Attock and North Western Frontier Province (NWFP) and our people could not use the bridge to cross it because it is heavily guarded. So we bought a boat to transport Piotr across the border," the guard, who identified himself as Abdullah, told Amir.

From NWFP, Stanczak was moved to the Tirah Valley of the adjoining Khyber tribal district, and a month later to the Taliban's stronghold of South Waziristan, a 14-hour drive through muddy mountain tracks.

"Piotr never showed any sign of nervousness or fear. He would finish the food we gave him and sleep well. We all admired his courage. It was not an easy decision even for our commander to kill Piotr," Abdullah said. "That's why he gave him a last chance."
"But he was very stubborn and refused our goodwill gesture to save his life," Abdullah was cited as saying by Amir. Piotr said first we should release him. He will go back to his country, consult his family and read about Islam and only then decide about converting to Islam.
"This surprised everyone but we had to kill him because principles are principles - we gave him a chance and he lost it," the guard told Amir. "But undoubtedly he was a brave man."

Body of Polish man slain in Pakistan returned home

April 29, 2009

Warsaw, Poland

The remains of a Polish geologist beheaded by militants in Pakistan were returned to Poland in a casket draped in the two countries' flags and covered in flowers.

Piotr Stanczak's body was flown to Warsaw's military airport on a Pakistani air force plane. In a short ceremony on the tarmac, a Roman Catholic priest prayed over the white casket.

Dressed in black, Stanczak's son and girlfriend stood briefly by the casket, their heads bowed.

The geologist was one of a handful of foreigners kidnapped in Pakistan in recent months as the country witnessed deterioration in security along with a rise in al-Qaida and Taliban-led violence.

Stanczak was kidnapped Sept. 28 close to the Afghan border while he was carrying out a project for a Krakow-based geophysics company that surveys oil and gas fields.

He was held hostage for several months before his captors beheaded him in February, a killing that they videotaped.

On Sunday, a car dropped the casket near a paramilitary camp in Razmak, Pakistan.

Officials then confirmed the remains were those of Stanczak.



Wild Thing's comment........

This innocent man, to the end, probably had the faint hope, if not the expectation, that his captors would not wantonly and cruelly murder him.

It’s difficult to get decent, regular folk to understand that this is real and possibly coming to this country. We will be seeing similar cases right here in the USA in view of our government’s effort to bring in more and more Muslims. And the fact that obama favors Muslims above all.

And the world is waiting for the “moderate” muslims throughout the world to condemn this act.........waiting for the sun to turn into a Red Giant and then become a white dwarf.

Obama these are YOUR people that did this.

Obama Drafts Executive Order to Detain Terrorists Indefinitely Without Trial



Obama drafts executive order to detain terrorists indefinitely without trial


The Washington Post


Such an order would embrace claims by former president George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war.

Obama advisers are concerned that bypassing Congress could place the president on weaker footing before the courts and anger key supporters, the officials said…
Some of Obama’s top legal advisers, along with a handful of influential Republican and Democratic lawmakers, have pushed for the creation of a “national security court” to supervise the incarceration of detainees deemed too dangerous to release but who cannot be charged or tried.

But the three senior government officials said the White House has turned away from that option, at least for now, because legislation establishing a special court would be both difficult to pass and likely to fracture Obama’s own party…

“Legislation could kill Obama’s plans,” said one government official involved. The official said an executive order could be the best option for the president at this juncture. Under one White House draft that was being discussed earlier this month, according to administration officials, detainees would be imprisoned at a military facility on U.S. soil but their ongoing detention would be subject to annual presidential review. U.S. citizens would not be held in the system…


One administration official said future transfers to the United States for long-term detention would be rare. Al-Qaeda operatives captured on the battlefield, which the official defined as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and possibly the Horn of Africa, would be held in battlefield facilities.


Another Broken Obama Promise


Obama may hold detainees indefinitely

Politico

Faced with a gloomy outlook for new congressional authority to detain terror suspects, the Obama administration appears to be considering issuing an executive order to govern the indefinite imprisonment of alleged Al Qaeda operatives, analysts said.

The focus on a unilateral action by President Barack Obama reflects a political dynamic on Capitol Hill that may render legislation on long-term detention unattainable.

On Friday, White House spokesman Ben LaBolt denied a published report that a possible executive order had been drafted

In a joint report published Friday, The Washington Post and a nonprofit investigative journalism group, ProPublica, said three unnamed senior government officials confirmed to them that such an order is being drafted (a step back from when the report was first published, at which point it said the order had already been drafted). The outlets also said some officials were now concerned that Obama would not meet the deadline he set to close Guantanamo by next January.

Obama could act unilaterally to set up a new military review system abroad at U.S. bases in Afghanistan or other countries. But it's unclear how different that would be from a Bush-era invention, Combatant Status Review Tribunals, which were widely criticized for lacking due process.

LOL well I will be fair here Obama did keep ONE of his promises.......He told Joe the Plumber we needed to spread the wealth. He sure as heck has done that and a ton of those promises about destroying America he has kept too. Putting Muslims in his administration would be another one.

Terrorists Keep U.S. Aviation Licenses






Terrorists Keep U.S. Aviation Licenses

Judicial Watch

At least half a dozen men suspected or convicted of terrorism have been allowed by the U.S. government to keep their federal aviation licenses, including two who appear on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List and a Libyan sentenced to nearly three decades in prison by a Scottish court for the 1980s bombing of an American airliner.

Reported by a major newspaper this week, the appalling story illustrates the government’s never ending incompetence when it comes to national security. This, despite strict antiterrorism measures enacted after the September 2001 terrorist attacks requiring the aviation license revocations of such individuals.


6 Considered Threats Kept Licenses for Aviation

The New York Times

At least six men suspected or convicted of crimes that threaten national security retained their federal aviation licenses, despite antiterrorism laws written after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that required license revocation. Among them was a Libyan sentenced to 27 years in prison by a Scottish court for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie.
In response to questions from The New York Times, the Transportation Security Administration, which is supposed to root out such individuals, announced that the Federal Aviation Administration suspended the licenses on Thursday.
The two agencies appeared to be unaware that the men were among the nearly one million people licensed as pilots, mechanics and flight dispatchers. They were identified by a tiny family-owned company in Mineola, N.Y., demonstrating software it developed to scrub lists of bank customers for terrorism links.
The list also includes an Iranian-American convicted of trying to send jet fighter parts to Iran and a Lebanese citizen living near Detroit who was convicted of trying to provide military equipment to Hezbollah.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) were unaware that the terrorists were actively licensed pilots, mechanics and flight dispatchers until the reporter who wrote the piece started snooping around. Incredibly, neither agency noticed that two of the individuals (Abdel Basset Ali Al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhima) are wanted by the FBI for the 1988 Lockerbie airline bombing.

Others include an Iranian convicted of trying to ship jet fighter parts to Iran and a Lebanese living in Michigan who was convicted for trying to provide military equipment to the Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah. The FAA even reissued the commercial pilot license of a southern California man jailed for trying to send thousands of aircraft parts to Iran and a Maryland man convicted of manufacturing ricin, a powerful poison favored by terrorists.

A little family-owned company in a small New York town discovered the federally licensed terrorists by using software it developed to scour lists of bank customers who might have links to terrorism. The Department of Homeland Security, which supposedly preempts, detects and deters terrorism threats, claims it’s conducting a comprehensive review to see why its system failed to identify these people.




Wild Thing's comment......

Gosh Ya want terrorists flying around without licenses? That might be dangerous!

For 8 years the left attacked Bush for wanting to keep us safe. They lied about the war saying it was all about oil, they lied about their not being WMD when last year many of us bloggers we posted about the yellow cake being shipped from Iraq quietly to Canada on our US Navy ships. The left oh yesss ole Harry Reid standing up and making the big ole announcement how HE stopped the Patriot Act that day.

Now we have people in power, in the majority and in Obama's administraton that don't have a clue how to perform their duties, have no respect for our Constitution and are no fans of our military at all.

Some Guantanamo Detainees Resisting Move to Palau

Some Guantanamo Detainees Resisting Move to Palau

FOX News

The Obama administration's drive to close the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has hit a new snag: At least some of the 13 detainees accepted for resettlement by the island nation of Palau don't want to go there.

Meanwhile, protests have erupted in Bermuda over its recent resettlement of four Uighur detainees, with the country's leader facing a no-confidence vote by his parliament. Dissent in the British island territory, which sits in the Atlantic Ocean east of North Carolina, came after Bermuda's acceptance of the men strained relations with London, which complained that the island's home-rule government failed to advise it about the decision.

Palau, a tiny South Pacific country, seemed to offer a potential solution to a problem that has vexed the Bush and Obama administrations since the Defense Department began clearing 22 Uighurs from China for release, after deciding they were erroneously deemed enemy combatants in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

After meeting with the Palauans and consulting their attorneys, the Uighurs showed little enthusiasm for transfer to the island, an administration official said.
A State Department spokesman couldn't be reached for comment. Calls to the Palau Embassy in Washington weren't returned. A spokesman for the Justice Department, which is leading a task force President Barack Obama has directed to review the Guantanamo detentions, declined to comment on the delays, saying "It would be premature to talk about any concrete proposals or requests at this time, as discussions are still ongoing."

The Obama administration official said the Palauans understand the U.S.—which subsidizes Palau's economy and oversees its defense—is under pressure to transfer detainees. The official said they have concerns about the lack of a Uighur community in Palau, and restrictions on becoming a citizen there.

George Clarke, a Washington lawyer who represents two Uighurs cleared for release, said his clients "are both very interested in getting out of Guantanamo and they are very open to the idea of going to Palau." But other Uighurs aren't interested in transfer to the islands, he said. "There's a difference of opinion," he said.

Palau has no Muslim community, and the majority of residents are Roman Catholic. Clarke said his clients are particularly concerned about the legal status they would hold on Palau, and whether they could obtain documentation such as a passport.

Wild Thing's comment........

Yikes, They probably want passports so they can come here.

They understand that the wheels are in motion and the administration just wants the issue to go away so they’re holding out for whatever concessions they can wrangle. Amazing! they went from prisoners to holding all the cards under this idiotic administration we have.

Life in paradise as Guantanamo Four take a dip, eat ice cream, and plan first Uighur restaurant in British territory of Bermuda

Daily Mail.co.uk

They look like ordinary tourists as they stroll along the seafront on the British territory of Bermuda, but these four men are far from regular sunseekers for they have spent the last seven years locked up in Guantanamo Bay.

The former terror suspects are Uighurs - members of China's Muslim Turkic-speaking minority - and hail from a rugged province in the far west of the country.

They were detained by the Americans, who eventually determined they were not a threat to the United States. But because no country volunteered to take them and it was feared they would be detained and tortured if they were returned to China, the men were left in limbo.

Now they have been given a chance by officials in the millionaire's playground - an island paradise that doubles as one of the wealthiest countries in the world.

And already they have dreams of opening the first Uighur restaurant.

Embracing the delights of their new island home, the Uighurs have already taken a sunset swim and caught a fish at their first attempt at fishing. They have also reverted to their real names after using pseudonyms since leaving China.

They encountered a fisherman while walking along the beach and became curious about the art of fishing, their lawyer said.

The man offered to teach them, and one of the former prisoners, Khelil Mamut, tossed a line into the ocean. He caught a 10-inch fish to the cheers of the other men, she said.

Government liaison Glenn Brangman later took them swimming and watched as they climbed the rocks and jumped into the ocean like he did as a boy.

'Normally Bermudians test the temperature of the water,' he said. 'But they just went to the edge and jumped straight in.'
'When we didn't have any country to accept us, when everybody was afraid of us ... Bermuda had the courage and was brave enough to accept us,' said Abdulla Abdulgadir, who at 30 is the youngest of the four men who relished their first weekend of freedom in seven years.
'We are not moving anywhere,' he said.

He and his companions have traded drab prison jumpsuits for comfortable cotton pants and knit shirts, and razor wire-encircled jail compounds for beach cottages, where they are staying at U.S. taxpayers' expense.

They hope to quickly find jobs in Bermuda - one of the world's wealthiest places because of its financial and insurance sector - and eventually start families.


The four Uighurs (pronounced WEE'-gurs) also have immediate priorities, such as learning to drive, scuba dive and bowl, said Glenn Brangman, a former military official who is helping reintroduce them to the world outside prison.

'I told them one step at a time,' Mr Brangman said. 'They're beginning to live all over again.'

The latest developments have sparked a rash of jokes with Bermuda's tourism slogan 'feel the love' satirically changed to 'Bermuda, it don't GITMO better than this'.

Thirteen other Uighurs at Guantanamo are hoping to move to the Pacific island nation of Palau.

Today the European Union said it was ready to help Barack Obama 'turn the page' on Guantanamo by taking in detainees - though it did not specify how many or which countries would do so.

All of the Uighurs were captured in Pakistan and Afghanistan as suspected allies of the Taliban and al-Qaeda. But the men claimed they had only fled oppression by China and were never enemies of the U.S.


'We only have one enemy, and that's the Chinese,' one of the men, Ablikim Turahun, told a military tribunal in 2004.

'They have been torturing us and killing us all: old, young, men, women, little children and unborn children.'U.S. officials eventually declared the Uighurs innocent of any wrongdoing and authorized their release, but they couldn't be sent back to China because U.S. law forbids deporting someone to a country where they are likely to face torture or persecution.




Wild Thing's comment........

This all goes right along with Obama's reaction to 9-11 and how he felt badly for the Muslims beniig driven to do such a thing, that the US had been so mean to Muslims.


We must remember this:


source

That all four of the Uighurs admitted during their combatant status review tribunals (CSRTs) at Gitmo that they received training in the Taliban’s Afghanistan. And all four of them received this training at an ETIM/TIP terrorist training facility in Tora Bora, a key area once controlled by the Taliban and al Qaeda. Three of the four Uighurs transferred to Bermuda also admitted that they had firsthand ties to senior terrorists such as Hassan Mahsum and Abdul Haq – the leaders of the ETIM/TIP. Haq was recently designated an al Qaeda terrorist by the Obama administration’s Treasury Department, which noted that he is also a member of al Qaeda’s elite Shura council. Mahsum was killed in a Taliban and al Qaeda stronghold in northern Pakistan in 2003.

Military Warns Against Detainee Transfers



Military warns against detainee transfers


The Washington Times

Military intelligence officials have quietly told Congress they advised against transferring 25 of the 60 Guantanamo Bay terror detainees deemed eligible for relocation by the Obama administration, including five who are considered to be highly dangerous and likely to return to the battlefield.

But the Defense Intelligence Agency officials did not raise any formal objections with the administration because they concluded the decision to move prisoners already had been made, according to a letter Sen. Tom Coburn, a member of the intelligence committee, sent Tuesday to Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair.

In the letter, obtained by The Washington Times, the Oklahoma Republican senator questions whether the White House put political considerations ahead of national security.

"The DIA told the committee that DIA has not objected to the release of many rank-and-file members of terrorist organizations 'due to an explicit understanding that many detainees were destined to be transferred out of GTMO regardless of intelligence-based objections,' " Mr. Coburn wrote.

"DIA's admission that it is not objecting to the release of some members of terrorist organizations due to a belief that policy considerations will outweigh intelligence concerns is highly troubling and highlights the need for the committee to hear from your office about the judgments of all agencies on this matter," Mr. Coburn wrote.

The DIA did not respond to multiple messages seeking comment. But a spokesman for the DNI, the nation's top intelligence official who reports directly to the president, said the intelligence community's job is to provide information and evaluation, and not to step into political debates.

"The intelligence community provides independent, objective intelligence analysis to policymakers without regard to political considerations," said Michael Birmingham, the spokesman.

Polls show that a majority of Americans are opposed to closing the prison and moving the detainees to the U.S., with some potentially standing trial in U.S. courts, and state offficials have lined up to oppose having any of the detainees moved to their jurisdiction.

The Pentagon in the past has made it clear the Ex-Gitmo detainees turning to terrorism on rise.

Obama is not going to listen to our military and our military is not able to be bottom line, hard line on this with him. When it comes to oa CIC like Obama it sure is too bad our military can't just tell him he is full of it and really lay into him how stupid this all is and how he had taken an oath to protect the citizens of this country. I know..... we better not hold our breath.

The Uighurs Terrorists No Longer at GITMO



Britain snubbed as Bermuda takes in Uighurs after deal with US

Times Online

Britain was left scrambling to assert the vestiges of its colonial authority yesterday after Bermuda welcomed in four former Guantánamo detainees under a secret deal with the United States.

British officials knew nothing of the arrangement until the men, all ethnic Uighurs from western China, were already airborne en route from Guantánamo to the British island territory, better known as a haven for tourists and tax exiles than former terrorist suspects.

Alarm bells sounded in London when Ewart Brown, the Bermudian Premier, welcomed the men as “landed in Bermuda in the short term, provided with the opportunity to become naturalised citizens and thereafter afforded the right to travel and leave Bermuda, potentially settling elsewhere”.

The men are in the country as “guest workers”. Under the British Overseas Territory Act of 2002, citizens of Bermuda were restored with the full rights of British citizenship, including the right of abode in the United Kingdom. Bermuda has control over internal affairs, including immigration, but not over foreign affairs, defence or security matters, under which, London made clear, the case of the Uighurs falls.

In a statement shortly after their arrival in Bermuda, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office chided authorities there for failing to consult London on their decision to admit the men and insisted that security assessments must be carried out before their future was decided. “This was a decision of the Bermuda Government,” the FCO said.

“We have underlined to the Bermuda Government that it should have consulted the UK on whether this falls within their competence or is a foreign affairs or security issue for which the Bermuda Government do not have delegated responsibility.”

The Foreign Office noted that the Uighurs — Huzaifa Parhat, Abdul Semet, Abdul Nasser and Jalal Jalaladin — do not possess any travel documents and so would be unable to leave Bermuda.

The development comes after Washington’s failure to convince Britain to take any more former detainees from Guantánamo as part of the Obama Administration’s effort to close the Cuban-based jail. Britain believes that it has “done its bit” after accepting 13 British citizens and residents released from Guantánamo.

It was reported on Wednesday that the 17 Uighurs, long recognised as not an international terrorist threat, would be resettled in the former American dependency of Palau in the South Pacific.

Sabin Willet, a lawyer accompanying the men, hailed Bermuda for its “act of grace”. He said: “Nations need good friends. When political opportunists blocked justice in our own country, Bermuda has reminded her old friend America what justice is.”

Those words will smart in London, where questions are already being asked why the US felt free to consult Bermuda but not Britain on the deal.



China demands US return Uighurs

BBC

China has demanded the return of 17 Chinese Muslim Uighur detainees held by the United States at Guantanamo Bay.

America should "stop handing over terrorist suspects to any third country," foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang said.

Palau, a former US Pacific territory which does not recognise China, has agreed to accept the ethnic Uighurs.

The US has been reluctant to send the Uighurs back to China for fear they will be tortured or executed.

There are more than eight million Uighurs living in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, a vast area of western China that borders Central Asia.

Correspondents say many members of the mainly Muslim community say they suffer Chinese political and religious persecution.

Beijing says Uighur insurgents are leading an Islamic separatist movement.

China says the 17 due to be sent from Guantanamo to Palau are members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, which is on the United Nations list of terrorist groups.

"China urges the US to implement the UN Security Council's relevant resolutions and its international obligations on counter-terrorism," Mr Qin said.

Bermuda Triangle anyone? heh heh

The article doesn't say if we had to give Bermuda money ( the pay off) like Obama gave the $200,000,000 bribe to
Palau. From what I can gather there is nothing preventing these terrorists from leaving Palau and attacking American interests.

And now Obama has the Chi-coms mad at him. LOL He just keeps getting countries mad at him. That's how it is for Community Organizers that become president you see, oh WAIT, he is the first community organizer to hit it big time before. Gosh maybe this is why!

Hey Obama don't worry about all these countries KNOWING what a POS you are. Your own citizens know it, at least half the country and that number is growing at least among the ones that are finally waking up.

The Chi-coms say they want the terrorists now , I wonder if they want the $200 million that goes with them?

Boy howdy Obama sure loves bailouts, this will have to be called the Terrorist Bailout going once, going twice....SOLD FOR A NEAT $200 Million.

No Outrage From "peace-loving" American Muslims Re: Recruitment Shooting Terrorist




Recruitment Shooting Suspect Doesn't Think Killing Was Murder

FOX News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.

A Muslim convert charged with fatally shooting an American soldier at a military recruiting center said Tuesday that he doesn't consider the killing a murder because U.S. military action in the Middle East made the killing justified.

"I do feel I'm not guilty," Abdulhakim Muhammad told The Associated Press in a collect call from the Pulaski County jail. "I don't think it was murder, because murder is when a person kills another person without justified reason."

Pvt. William Andrew Long, 23, of Conway had just completed basic training and was volunteering at the west Little Rock recruiting office before starting an assignment in South Korea. He was shot dead June 1 while smoking a cigarette outside the building, and a fellow soldier, Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula, 18, of Jacksonville was wounded.

The private, who also had just completed basic training, said he hopes to become a heavy equipment operator in the Army and later serve as a drill instructor. An Army captain repeatedly stopped Ezeagwula from answering questions about what happened during the shooting or his thoughts about the suspect.

Muhammad told the AP he admitted to his actions to police and said he was retaliating against the U.S. military.

"Yes, I did tell the police upon my arrest that this was an act of retaliation, and not a reaction on the soldiers personally," Muhammad said. He called it "a act, for the sake of God, for the sake of Allah, the Lord of all the world, and also a retaliation on U.S. military."
In the interview, Muhammad also disputed his lawyer's claim that he had been "radicalized" in a Yemeni prison and said fellow prisoners that some call terrorists were actually "very good Muslim brothers."

He also said he didn't specifically plan the shootings that morning.

"It's been on my mind for awhile. It wasn't nothing planned really. It was just the heat of the moment, you know," said Muhammad, who was arrested on a highway shortly after the attack.

Prosecutor Larry Jegley, who on Monday won a gag order in the case, declined to comment specifically on Muhammad's remarks.

"I asked for the gag order to protect Mr. Muhammad's right for a fair trial," Jegley said. "I've never had a situation like this with a gag order and I'm sure Mr. Muhammad's attorney will take care of it."
Muhammad, 23, said he wanted revenge for claims that American military personnel had desecrated copies of the Quran and killed or raped Muslims. "For this reason, no Muslim, male or female, sane or insane, little, big, small, old can accept or tolerate," he said.
He said the U.S. military would never treat Christians and their Scriptures in the same manner.
"U.S. soldiers are killing innocent Muslim men and women. We believe that we have to strike back. We believe in eye for an eye. We don't believe in turning the other cheek," he said.
Asked whether he considered the shootings at the recruiting center an act of war, Muhammad said "I didn't know the soldiers personally, but yes, it was an attack of retaliation. And I feel that other attacks, not by me or people I know, but definitely Muslims in this country and others elsewhere, are going to attack for doing those things they did," especially desecrating the Quran.

Where is the outrage from the peace-loving American Muslims? Of course they are silent and once again they argument to being Moderate and playing nice means absolutely nothing.

This guy is just your run of the mill Jew hater. This stuff is being stoked by Obama kissing up to terrorists and pulling away from Israel! Obama hates Jews too!

OBAMA’S FAULT!!

One more thing, you know how the left uses everything they can to try to disparage guns at public places.If the Guard didn't have a gun to stop the perp then many more people would have been killed or wounded today.

Former defense secretary Bill Cohen was also there, he was only 30 feet away when he saw the perp get out of his car and go into the Museum. He was told to run and he ran, he said

If he had a cancealed weapon he could have stopped the gunman .

I am so angry, they keep sayiing the guy was a "right winger" over and over and over again on the communist channels CNN and the other horrible one MSNBC.

Some woman named Joan Walsh was on MSNBC and in a 2 minute speel she must have said Right wing 7 or 8 times and then she brought up Rush Limbaughs name too as to compare the shooter today with all of us on the right as all the same. Their hate for the right is overwhelming.

Gitmo Prisoner Becomes First To Go To US Court





Gitmo prisoner becomes first to go to US court


The first Guantanamo Bay detainee to be transferred to US soil was due in court in New York Tuesday in a politically charged test for President Barack Obama's plan to close the controversial prison. Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian national who had been held at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility since September 2006, was to be arraigned in a federal court in New York at 4:00 pm (2000 GMT).

He is charged with taking part in the August 7, 1998 bombing of the US embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya.

This is a first test for White House plans to shut down Guantanamo and bring inmates to trial or send them to their countries of origin.

The pledge was a major element in Obama's presidential campaign last year, along with an order to end officially sanctioned torture. Republicans have attacked the Democrat for what they say is a dangerous priority on human rights over national security.

But Attorney General Eric Holder said the transfer of Ghailani served justice and posed no threat to the United States.
"With his appearance in federal court today, Ahmed Ghailani is being held accountable for his alleged role in the bombing of US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya and the murder of 224 people," Holder said in a statement.
"The Justice Department has a long history of securely detaining and successfully prosecuting terror suspects through the criminal justice system, and we will bring that experience to bear in seeking justice in this case," Holder said. Ghailani faces 286 counts of murder, conspiracy to murder, bomb and maim, and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction against US nationals, charges for which he could receive the death penalty.

Ghailani faces 286 counts of murder, conspiracy to murder, bomb and maim, and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction against US nationals, charges for which he could receive the death penalty.

According to the indictment from March 2001, Ghailani also conspired with Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and other Qaeda members to kill Americans.

The Guantanamo detention center still houses about 240 so-called "war on terror" inmates, most of whom have been detained since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

Obama wants the facility closed by January 2010.


First Gitmo inmate in US court pleads not guilty

NEW YORK

Under heavy guard, a Guantanamo Bay detainee walked into a civilian U.S. courtroom for the first time Tuesday, underscoring the Obama administration's determination to close the Cuban prison and hold trials here despite Republican alarms about bringing terror suspects to America.

Ahmed Ghailani, a Tanzanian accused in two American Embassy bombings a decade ago, pleaded not guilty — in English — in a brief but historic federal court hearing that transported him from open-ended military detention to the civilian criminal justice system.

"Not guilty" answered Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, when Federal Court Judge Loretta Preska asked how he pleaded.
President Barack Obama has said keeping Ghailani from coming to the United States "would prevent his trial and conviction." Taking a drastically different stance, House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio labeled Tuesday's move "the first step in the Democrats' plan to import terrorists into America."

Ghailani, accused of being a bomb-maker, document forger and aide to Osama bin Laden, was brought to New York to await trial in connection with al-Qaida bombings that killed 224 people — including 12 Americans — at the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998.

U.S. marshals took custody of Ghailani from his military jailers and transferred him to a federal lockup in lower Manhattan that currently holds financial swindler Bernard Madoff, and once held mob scion John "Junior" Gotti and blind terror leader Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.

The White House declined to say whether Ghailani would be released if cleared by the court.

"I'm not going to get into hypotheticals," said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs. "Let's discuss that if it ever comes to fruition."

Obama Releases Iraqi Shia Terror Group Leader That Killed US Soldiers





As part of 'reconciliation effort,' U.S. military releases Iran-backed jihadist that killed 5 US soldiers

US releases Iraqi Shia terror group leader

Long War Journal

The US military has released a senior member of a deadly terror group backed by Iran that has been directly implicated in the kidnapping and murder of five US soldiers in Karbala during a complex operation in early 2007.

Laith al Qazali was freed last weekend "as part of a reconciliation effort" as well as an attempt to secure the release of captive British hostages, according to a report in The New York Times.

Laith is the brother of Qais Qazali, the commander of the Qazali network, which is better known as the Asaib al Haq, or the League of the Righteous. Qais Qazali was a spokesperson and senior aide to Mahdi Army leader Muqtada al Sadr. The terror group, which was part of the Mahdi Army until the spring of 2008, has received extensive financial and military support from Iran's Qods Force, the external division that backs Hezbollah and is tasked with supporting the Khomeinist Islamist revolution.

The League of the Righteous was directly implicated by General David Petraeus as being behind the January 2007 attack on the Provincial Joint Coordination Center in Karbala as well as other high-profile terror attacks in Iraq. Five US soldiers were killed during the Karbala attack and subsequent kidnapping attempt. The US soldiers were executed after US and Iraqi security forces closed in on the assault team.

The attack on the Karbala Provincial Joint Coordination Center was a complex, sophisticated operation. The assault team, led by tactical commander Azhar al Dulaimi, was trained in a mock-up of the center that was built in Iran. The unit had excellent intelligence and received equipment that made them appear to be US soldiers. Some of the members of the assault team are said to have spoken English.

Laith's release part of hostage exchange

The US military claimed that Laith's release is part of a reconciliation effort with the League of the Righteous, but the real aim appears to be the release of five British hostages who were captured by the group.

"As part of a reconciliation effort between the government of Iraq and Asaib al Haq, the decision has been made to release Laith Qazali," Lieutenant Colonel Brian Maka told The New York Times. "Asaib al Haq has pledged to representatives of the Iraqi prime minister to give up violence and move the group towards peaceful integration into Iraqi society. An unconditional cease-fire will be undertaken by the group."

But the League of the Righteous has long demanded that the US military release Qais, Laith, and other members of the terror group in exchange for the five Britons captured in March 2007 during another complex operation at Iraq's Finance Ministry.

The real purpose of the release of Laith was explained by Sami al Askari, a spokesman for Prime minister Nouri al Maliki. The issue of reconciliation is merely a pretext for a prisoner / hostage exchange.

"This is a very sensitive topic because you know the position that the Iraqi government, the U.S. and British governments, and all the governments do not accept the idea of exchanging hostages for prisoners," Askari told The New York Times. "So we put it in another format, and we told them that if they want to participate in the political process they cannot do so while they are holding hostages. And we mentioned to the American side that they cannot join in the political process and release their hostages while their leaders are behind bars or imprisoned."

A one-to-one exchange of Shia terrorists for the British hostages will take place over the next week. It is unclear if Qais or Daqduq will be released in the exchange, but in the past, the League of the Righteous has been adamant that they be released.

The League of the Righteous still conducts operations against Iraqi and US forces in Baghdad and central and southern Iraq. The group has not honored previous ceasefire agreements, and the release of its senior leadership may give the group new life.

We KNOW President Bush would not have allow this . This Muslim Obama administration is an anti-american trojan virus that needs to be destroyed and removed.

Here is one of the soldiers this terrorist killed. 1st Lt. Jacob N. Fritz KIA

This is appalling. It’s appeasement at its worst.

The terror group, which was part of the Mahdi Army until the spring of 2008, has received extensive financial and military support from Iran's Qods Force, the external division that backs Hezbollah and is tasked with supporting the Khomeinist Islamist revolution.

The Qazali brothers are top tier "plausible deny-ability" terrorists. Their links to Iran are legendary. Iran was able to directly kill U.S. troops using their hands. Not 'Iraqi freedom fighters'. Iranian agents.

This release isn't just being soft on terrorism. It's being soft on state sponsored terrorism.

I am appalled at this. A lot of effort went into catching these guys and proving those links. To let it all go to waste is beyond disheartening.

Obama To Ease the Impact of Post-9/11 Srutiny of Charities



President Obama to American Muslims: I will ease the impact of post-9/11 scrutiny of charities


Daily News

Tucked away in President Obama's historic speech in Cairo Thursday was a promise to American Muslims to ease the impact of post-9/11 scrutiny of their charities.

"Rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That's why I'm committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat," said Obama, referring to the Muslim obligation to be charitable.

A Treasury Department spokeswoman, Natalie Wyeth, described an increased effort to talk with the groups, to "help them protect against terrorist abuse of charity and to refine the guidance surrounding charitable giving."

Ever since the World Trade Center attacks, fund-raising by American Muslims has come under repeated federal investigations for possible support of terrorism.

Just last week, a federal judge in Dallas sentenced five leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development to between 15 and 65 years in prison after they were convicted of providing material support to Hamas.

American Muslims complain legitimate philanthropy has been hampered because the rules are ill-defined.

"The perception that giving to charities is financing terrorism has to be debunked," said Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. "It hurts America."
"There's no public notice of who you can and can't do business with," said Kay Guinane, who is leading an effort on the issue for OMB Watch, a good-government group.
"It's created a tremendous climate of fear," she said. "Donors are afraid they may be prosecuted for giving to an organization now that may be declared a supporter of terrorism two years from now."
"We need long-term sensible laws in this area," she concluded, "and that's why I was so happy to hear that that the President recognizes that there is a problem and is committed to doing something about it."

Pardon me, but WTF? One of the ways President Bush and our Homeland Security during the Bush administraion was able to go after terrorists, STOP possible attacks from happening was that veery thing. The Banks and donations and who the Muslim groups were donating to.
OMG

"Just last week, a federal judge in Dallas sentenced five leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development to between 15 and 65 years in prison after they were convicted of providing material support to Hamas"


EXACTLY! This should be taken as an act of aiding the enemy during war. Heck even if we were not at war. He is a TRAITOR to our country, and has not kept his oath of office.

Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development ( HLF )

U.S-based Islamic charity shut down by authorities in 2001 for funding the terrorist group Hamas
A non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable trust headquartered in Richardson, Texas. It also maintained branch offices in New Jersey, California, and Illinois.
Suspicious of its terrorist ties, U.S. federal authorities began monitoring the Holy Land Foundation in 1996. On September 5, 2001, federal anti-terrorism agents raided InfoCom Corporation, the company that ran the HLF website.
On December 4, 2001, the Bush administration seized all HLF assets and records because of its Hamas connections. Said President Bush at the time: "Hamas has obtained much of the money that it pays for murder abroad right here in the United States, money originally raised by the Holy Land Foundation. The Holy Land Foundation ... raised $13 million from people in America last year. … Money raised by the Holy Land Foundation is used by Hamas to support schools and indoctrinate children to grow up into suicide bombers. [It] is also used by Hamas to recruit suicide bombers and to support their families."

FBI Told to "back off" Black Muslim Converts







Did White House Order FBI To “Back Off” Anti Terror Investigations Into Black Muslim Converts’??


Today's update from Stratfor Research describes the background of a recent attack on U.S. soldiers in Little Rock, Arkansas. One soldier was killed and another critically wounded by a lone gunman who began shooting from a pickup truck.

Police quickly apprehended a suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, a 21-year-old African-American man and convert to Islam. In his vehicle, police recovered an SKS rifle and two handguns. Muhammad reportedly admitted to the shootings and claimed he had specifically targeted U.S. military personnel; he stated had more soldiers been in the parking lot, he would have shot them too.

A disturbing aspect of the attack is that Muhammad had been brought to the FBI’s attention months ago, according to ABC News.

But U.S. counterterror teams may have been intentionally prevented from investigating radicalized converts to Islam:

Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to “back off” of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts. At this point, it is unclear to us if that guidance was given by the White House or the Department of Justice, or if it was promulgated by the agencies themselves, anticipating the wishes of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Stratfor implies, however, that the investigations were canceled for purely political reasons.


....."politics have proved obstructive to all facets of counterterrorism policy. And politics may have been at play in the Muhammad case as well as in other cases involving Black Muslim converts"...

Is it possible that the White House or Eric Holder's Justice Department "turned off" counterterror investigations that could have saved the targeted soldiers?

This paragraph would appear to make clear that such an order was given:

Many FBI supervisors are reluctant to authorize investigations that they believe may have negative blow-back on their career advancement. In light of this institutional culture, and the order to be careful in investigations relating to Black Muslim converts, it would not be at all surprising to us if a supervisor refused to authorize a full-field investigation of Muhammad that would have included surveillance of his activities... Had the FBI opened a full-field investigation on Muhammad, and had it conducted surveillance on him, it would have been able to watch him participate in preoperational activities such as conducting surveillance of potential targets and obtaining weapons.

Obama Changes Mind About Uighur Terrorists at GITMO



Obama Administration Asserts Uighur Detainees Have No Right to Come to US

ABC Political Punch

by Jack Tapper

The Obama administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court Friday to reject a request for a hearing from 17 Chinese Muslims currently being held at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, arguing they have no right to come to America despite a district judge's orders last Fall that they immediately be brought to the U.S. and released.

"Petitioners are free to return to their home country, but they understandably do not wish to do so, because they fear inhumane treatment there," reads the filing, signed by US Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, and other Justice Department officials. "Petitioners are also free to go to any other country that is willing to accept them."

Many European countries are waiting for the US to accept the Uighurs before they agree to accept any more detainees from Guantanamo, but there is strong resistance from Congress, which recently voted to keep any detainees out of the US -- even out of US prisons.

But not to worry -- the Obama administration says the Uighurs' detention isn't so bad, considering.

"In contrast to individuals currently detained as enemies under the laws of war, petitioners are being housed under relatively unrestrictive conditions, given the status of Guantanamo Bay as a United States military base," Kagan writes, saying they are "in special communal housing with access to all areas of their camp, including an outdoor recreation space and picnic area." They "sleep in an air-conditioned bunk house and have the use of an activity room equipped with various recreational items, including a television with VCR and DVD players, a stereo system, and sports equipment."

On April 3, 2009, the Uighurs asked the US Supreme Court to hear their case.

The Obama administration on Friday urged the Supreme Court to not hear the case of the Uighurs, and to uphold the appellate court ruling.

Ironically, the Obama administration is now using Congress's refusal to allocate funding for the closing of Guantanamo as further reason why the Uighurs should not be freed. Mentioning that the House of Representatives passed a supplemental defense appropriations bill containing a provision specifying that “(n)one of the funds made available in this or any prior Act may be used to release an individual who is detained" at Guantanamo.

LOL Hello Obama, it seems he has realized that if even one of these terrorist come to America and commit any violent crime he would be held responsible. Or it may be a polticial play not sure.

Obama could care less about the safety of Americans! But the media would have a tuff time defending him when there would be an attack on our soil after bringikng the Uighur terrorists here.

Eric Holder Supports Terrorists


Eric Holder on Terrorist Organizations






Politico

At an oversight hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, the sharpest questioning came from Republicans who challenged Holder about the possibility that the administration will seek to bring some terror detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the United States.

“They could be released into American communities and become a threat to our families and neighbors,” warned the committee’s ranking member, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas). “They will certainly give new purpose to neighborhood watch committees. Their detention facilities could become a target for attack by sleeper cells here and around the world.”

Holder said the Justice Department had not yet studied the risks the inmates could pose to Americans, because there is no plan yet about precisely where they would be sent. “We’re not going to do anything — anything — that is going to put the American people at risk. Nothing,” the attorney general underscored.

“It seems to me that there would be zero risk if we brought zero people to the United States of America,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) accused Holder of being “so hellbent on not using waterboarding” that he would allow a terrorist attack to take place rather than use the technique, which the attorney general has described as torture.

Smith also joined the growing ranks of members demanding greater disclosure from the transparency-touting Obama administration.

“Before a single detainee is transferred anywhere, all unclassified records regarding their backgrounds should be made public,” Smith insisted. “I am concerned in its first months in office the administration has engaged in a pattern of behavior that is endangering the American people.”
Rep. Howard Coble (R-N.C.) used colorful language as he pressed Holder on whether detainees brought to the U.S. might be eligible for welfare.


“I don’t want to be portrayed as an inflexible, redneck coot, but I believe that would be a reckless fiscal exercise to provide assistance to that end,” Coble said.

The attorney general was cagey on whether he supports the idea of creating a blue-ribbon panel to investigate claims that aggressive interrogation techniques authorized by the Bush administration amounted to torture.

“You could just say yes,” suggested Conyers.

“The decision to do such a thing I will leave in your good hands,” Holder said.

When Conyers asked what factors Holder would use in considering whether to appoint an independent counsel to investigate the Bush-era interrogation program, the attorney general also gave an exceedingly general response.

“We will allow the law and the facts to take us wherever is appropriate,” Holder said.

Holder shed little light on the outcome of an internal investigation of the former Justice Department lawyers who wrote memos giving a legal green light to interrogation techniques many view as torture. He said he hadn’t seen the report, which is said to recommend that some of the lawyers be referred for possible discipline by state bar authorities. “I would think that we’re looking at a matter of weeks before it will be complete,” Holder said.

Holder also faced questions about President Barack Obama’s decision to reverse course and fight court rulings requiring the disclosure of photos of alleged detainee abuse by the U.S. military. The attorney general appeared to reach his limit on transparency when he rebuffed a request from Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) to share the Justice Department’s initial conclusion that it would be “hopeless” to pursue the case to the Supreme Court.

“I have great reluctance in saying that I would share internal Justice Department memoranda that deal with decision making in particular cases,” Holder said.

Despite the serious subject matter, the hearing had moments of levity. At one point, Rep. Steven Cohen (D-Tenn.) said he hoped Holder didn’t regard the pitcher of water on the witness table as “some sort of intimidation.”
“As long as it’s not poured down my nose, I think I’m OK,” Holder said.





Wild Thing's comment.........

Listen to Lamar Smith in the video as he asks Eric Holder the same question over and over. He has to reword it to try and get Holder to answer a simple question.

Let's you and I put the question another way. A man enlists and goes to Boot Camp in the USArmy, he goes through all the training. Now let's ask this....Is the man that went into the Army, went through and completed Basic training, is this man a soldier? The same for the NAVY is the man a sailor, the Marines,is the man a Marine.

OR like Eric Holder says we cannot answer that until we check

"you have to individualize the determinations about a particular person"

WTF sorry but can't send Eric Holder to GITMO and put HIM in one of the jail cells with one of the terrorists? He seems to really like them and he obviously would enjoy their company. Because he sure as heck could care less about American lives.

America's tombstone will read: 'At least we were politically correct'

Obama to Try Terror Suspect in NYC, First Gitmo Detainee Brought to U.S.




Obama to Try Terror Suspect in NYC, First Gitmo Detainee Brought to U.S.

FOX News

The Obama administration is pressing ahead with its plan to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center, deciding to put a "high value" detainee on trial in New York City despite resistance from some in Congress.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced early Thursday that Ahmed Ghailani will be sent to New York City for trial, which would make him the first Guantanamo detainee brought to the U.S. and the first to face trial in a civilian criminal court.

Ghailani was indicted by a federal grand jury in New York for the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa -- attacks that killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. It was not immediately clear when the transfer would occur.

"By prosecuting Ahmed Ghailani in federal court, we will ensure that he finally answers for his alleged role in the bombing of our embassies in Tanzania and Kenya," Holder said in a statement.
"This administration is committed to keeping the American people safe and upholding the rule of law, and by closing Guantanamo and bringing terrorists housed there to justice we will make our nation stronger and safer," the attorney general said.

Ghailani, a Tanzanian, was categorized as a high-value detainee by U.S. authorities after he was captured in Pakistan in 2004 and transferred to the detention center at the U.S. naval base in Cuba two years later.

The decision on the first U.S. trial of a Guantanamo detainee comes as President Barack Obama faces pressure from across the political spectrum on his plan to close the detention center by January 2010. Democrats have said they want to see the president's plan for closing the base before it approves money to finance it, and Republicans are fighting to keep Guantanamo open.

Some lawmakers have already voiced opposition to bringing Guantanamo detainees to the U.S. for trial, even in heavily guarded settings.

Obama is scheduled to give a major speech addressing Guantanamo and national security Thursday morning.

The Associated Press reported in March that Ghailani was among a handful of high-value suspects that prosecutors were considering bringing to trial in the United States on charges that predate the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Trying Ghailani for the embassy attacks may help prosecutors avoid legal challenges surrounding Ghailani's detention and treatment.

U.S. authorities say he helped plan and deliver the explosives in the embassy attack, and later rose up through the Al Qaeda ranks.

He has denied knowing the TNT and oxygen tanks would be used to make a bomb. He also denied buying a vehicle used in the attack, saying he could not drive.

Just before the embassy bombings, Ghailani flew to Pakistan.

Last year, military prosecutors charged that after the 1998 bombings, Ghailani worked for Al Qaeda as a document forger, trainer at a terror camp and bodyguard to Usama bin Laden.

The Ghailani decision revives a long-dormant case charging bin Laden and top Al Qaeda leadership with plotting the Aug. 7, 1998 bombings at U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The blasts killed more than 200 people and injured thousands, including many who were blinded by shards of flying glass. The attacks prompted then-President Bill Clinton to launch cruise missile attacks two weeks later on bin Laden's Afghan camps.

Four other men have been tried and convicted in the New York courthouse for their roles in the embassy attacks. All were sentenced to life in prison.


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama cares more about the “rights” of terrorists than the safety of Americans. You have to hate your country to do something like this. I don’t trust Obama or the courts to keep these terrorists off our streets.

Also when he is moved from military custody into federal court jurisdiction the rules change. And he’ll get the best legal talent for free because of the news media coverage which could turn him into a folk hero. The costs of logistics, security and disruption of normal business will be in the tens of millions of dollars.

Nightmare waiting to happen that It will take one Muslim or America-hating leftist juror to hang the jury. And then he would walk!

Just one more thing, it is so obvious that Obama and his administration will do whatever they want to. We see that now more then ever. They have no intention of listening even to those in their own political party. Arrogance to this extreme is treacherous and of the most dangerous kind to someone that has been put in charge as president.

OBAMA IS THE NUMBER ONE MOST DANGEROUS PERSON IN AMERICA!

4 Arrested in New York Terror Plot






4 Arrested in New York Terror Plot

New York Times

Federal authorities arrested four men on Wednesday night on charges of plotting to bomb two synagogues in the Riverdale section of the Bronx and to use antiaircraft missiles to shoot down military planes at a military base in Newburgh, N.Y., 60 miles north of New York City.

ARRESTED:

JAMES CROMITIE, a/k/a "Abdul Rahman," a/k/a "Abdul Rehman,"
DAVID WILLIAMS, a/k/a "Daoud," a/k/a "DL,"
ONTA WILLIAMS, a/k/a "Hamza,"
LAGUERRE PAYEN, a/k/a "Amin," a/k/a "Almondo,"

The charges, which include conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction in the United States and conspiracy to acquire and use antiaircraft missiles, represent some of the most significant allegations of domestic terrorism in some time. They come months into a new presidential administration, and as President Obama grapples with the question of how to handle detainees at the Guantánamo naval base in Cuba.

Mr. Cromitie, who is described as the lead defendant, is said to have told an F.B.I. informer that he had ties with Jaish-e-Muhammad, a jihadist group based in Pakistan. None of the defendants actually obtained weapons of mass destruction, according to the authorities. The men were, however, given an antiaircraft missile system that was incapable of being fired, as well as homemade bombs containing inert plastic explosives, as part of the undercover investigation, the authorities said.

For complete story please go HERE

New York Post

They planted what they thought were explosives in a parked car outside the house of worship.

One acted as a lookout, while the other three allegedly drove up the block to the Riverdale Jewish Center and planted two more bags of "explosives" in cars.

Unbeknownst to them, their explosives were duds -- supplied by authorities who had been monitoring their plan for more than a year.

Cops swooped in and arrested them right after they allegedly planted the last of the phony bombs.

One of the suspects, James Cromitie, a k a Abdul Rahman, bragged that blowing up the synagogues would be a "piece of cake," the feds said.
"I hate those motherf - - -ers, those f - - -ing Jewish bastards . . . I would like to get a synagogue," Cromitie told an informant, according to a criminal complaint.

The alleged terrorists' hatred also included the US military.

After bombing the temples, the men planned to split up and head to the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport in their hometown and shoot down a plane with a weapon they believed was a Stinger surface-to-air guided missile, sources said.
"They [the United States military] are killing Muslim brothers and sisters in Muslim countries, so if we kill them here [in the United States] with IEDs [improvised explosive devices] and Stingers, it is equal," one of the busted men, Onta Williams, allegedly told the informant.

Obama Set to Revive Military Commissions



Guantanamo Bay's military commissions were frozen by the Obama administration. Now it appears they will reappear in a different venue.


Obama Set to Revive Military Commissions

Washington Post

The Obama administration is preparing to revive the system of military commissions established at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, under new rules that would offer terrorism suspects greater legal protections, government officials said.

The rules would block the use of evidence obtained from coercive interrogations, tighten the admissibility of hearsay testimony and allow detainees greater freedom to choose their attorneys, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The military commissions have allowed the trial of terrorism suspects in a setting that favors the government and protects classified information, but they were sharply criticized during the administration of President George W. Bush. "By any measure, our system of trying detainees has been an enormous failure," then-candidate Barack Obama said in June 2008.

In one of its first acts, the Obama administration obtained a 120-day suspension of the military commissions; that will expire May 20. Human rights groups had interpreted the suspension as the death knell for military commissions and expected the transfer of cases to military courts martial or federal courts.

Officials said yesterday that the Obama administration will seek a 90-day extension of the suspension as early as next week. It would subsequently restart the commissions on American soil, probably at military bases, according to a lawyer briefed on the plan.
"This is an extraordinary development, and it's going to tarnish the image of American justice again," said Tom Parker, a counterterrorism specialist at Amnesty International.

The administration's extension would allow it to meet a requirement to provide Congress with 60 days' notice of any rule changes in the way the commissions function, officials said. Congress established the commissions in 2006 after the Supreme Court struck down a system of military tribunals created by the Bush admin
