    Exclusive: Bin Landen on a ventlator, trachea

    Video with still pic of Biny:
    Delivered in a monotone, no enthusiasm, tired, from a well read script.
    Slight echo, still believe he is reading this in a small cave, same locatation as last time.
    Going to attack Israel, al Qaeda is about to get their ass handed to them.

    There must be something wrong with his physical appearance ( wounded, maimed sick ), it takes no effort to video rather than record.

    He is on a ventalor he has a Trachea.
    The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    The very first sound you hear on the vid is the ventilator.
    A respiratory therapist should be able to tell you the model from the sound.

    At about 18:00 on you can hear the faint traces of a ventilator, Biny has a trachea.
    which also means a Nebulizer.
    At 26:00 on it can be heard clearly, the breath between phrases.
    Use your ear buds, on high.
    You can hear the mechanical breath as the ventilator re-pressurizes his lungs.
    Background noise ventilator compressor, breathing for Biny.
    Update: the noise could his O2 compressor...?
    Ventilator means he cannot breathe for himself.

    More breaking. Video soon to be released.
    Got it thank you Jawa

    Back Channels on "B's" assassination

    Back channels indicate there were many other attacks on others same day as assassination.

    Also it was a combined attack on "B"
    and rogue elements involved.

    Pakti press still locked down.
    Great Britan has an unusually large interest in this story. 20% of surfers/ normally 5%.
    UPDATE: Yesterday the British followers of exiled cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed issued a statement celebrating the murder of Benazir Bhutto. The announcement was reposted under the title Death of Bhutto: A day of joy: from Jawa Report
    Baitullah Mehsud the NEW TALIBAN LEADER for a while now and FBI has no reward for him.

    The attack yesterday at Rawalpindi bore the hallmarks of a sophisticated military operation. At first, Bhutto's rally was hit by a suicide bomb that turned out to be a decoy. According to press reports and a situation report of the incident relayed to The New York Sun by an American intelligence officer, Bhutto's armored limousine was shot by multiple snipers whose armor-piercing bullets penetrated the vehicle, hitting the former premier five times in the head, chest, and neck. Two of the snipers then detonated themselves shortly after the shooting, according to the situation report, while being pursued by local police. A separate attack was thwarted at the local hospital where Bhutto possibly would have been revived had she survived the initial shooting. . . . A working theory, according to this American source, is that Al Qaeda or affiliated jihadist groups had effectively suborned at least one unit of Pakistan's Special Services Group, the country's equivalent of Britain's elite SAS commandos. . . . "They just killed the most protected politician in the whole country," this source said. "We really don't know a lot at this point, but the first thing that is happening is we are asking the Pakistani military to account for every black team with special operations capabilities."

    Lake's source stressed to him that "this was just a theory at this point"


    We don't yet know whether Al- Qaeda Commander and spokesman Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told the truth in his phone call to Italian news agency Adnkronos International (AKI) when he stated that the decision to kill Bhutto was made by Al- Qaeda No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri in October, 2007, and carried out by a cell involving a "Punjabi volunteer" of Lashkar-i-Jhangvi ("LIJ").

    But the involvement of LIJ fits the past pattern of its terrorist activities, which link up with Al Qaeda and the Taliban, and which are profoundly committed to destroying secular rule in Pakistan.

    As summarized by the US Department of State, LIJ is a Sunni-Deobandi Muslim extremist group, based mostly in the Punjab region of Pakistan and Karachi. It has assisted in several high-profile attacks on Westerners in Pakistan, including the January 2002 kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. In 2002, LIJ banded with two other Sunni extremist groups to form the Pakistani wing of al Qaeda. Their goal? Ending secular rule and replacing it with a Sunni Muslim state.

    LIJ has implemented this goal through a series of lethal attacks on sectarian rivals, including the types of people who have the greatest symbolic value as victims of terrorism. They thus have murdered priests, diplomats, religious leaders, and people while they are actually engaged in worship. Notably, LIJ claimed responsibility for attempting to assassinate Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in 1999.

    LIJ is reportedly a very small organization, with perhaps as few as 100 members. Even if it were not responsible for Bhutto's assassination, it had already exercised a disproportionately destructive impact on Pakistan, the region, and the world. And all in the name of destroying secularism, and replacing it with a Taliban-like theocracy.


    In northwest Pakistan a suicide bomber detonated his bomb inside a crowded mosque on Eid al-Adha (the Islamic Feast of Sacrifice which marks the end of the annual hajj.) The attack was an attempt to kill former Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao. Forty-eight people were killed and over 100 were wounded, including Sherpao's son and two grandnephews. Sherpao was unharmed.

    This was the second attempt on Sherpao’s life in eight months, the previous attempt at a political rally in nearby Charsadda, 28 were killed and Sherpao was slightly wounded.

    That Islamists would attack Sherpao is unsurprising. As Interior Minister he was a top security official and a key player in the Lal Masjid Mosque crackdown that has sparked the present high levels of violence. But for an Islamist to enter a mosque on a major holiday and murder innocent worshipers should be beyond the pale - even for radical Islamists.

    Read the complete post here.


    It should be noted that is not the first time that Al-Qaida and its affiliates have allegedly targeted Benazir Bhutto for assassination. During the Philippine police interrogation of Abdul Hakim Murad--an associate of 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi Yousef--Murad recalled that Yousef "once made a statement that BHUTTO should be replaced as PM of Pakistan since Islamic belief does not allow a woman to occupy such position and that [mujahideen organizations] should do something to unseat her. Said statement indicates that [Yousef] might be planning to carry out an attack against the PM of Pakistan." Likewise, during the mid-1990s, the FBI recorded several telephone conversations involving Kifah Jayyousi and Adham Hassoun (who were recently convicted in federal court for their role in recruiting would-be Al-Qaida operative Jose Padilla) in which the men discussed "getting rid" of the late Pakistani Prime Minister--who they referred to as "Khanazir Bhutto" ("Bhutto the Pig"): "She's done... done... she... she was finished... finished, my brother... I was reading about the life... the life of the Prophet, peace and blessing upon him... 'Men are ruined if they are to obey women'. Praise to God."


    Bhutto’s death also makes former prime minister Nawaz Sharif Pakistan’s top opposition figure. Sharif has attempted to appeal to Islamic militants, arguing that Pakistan needs to pare down its cooperation with the United States. Sharif has already capitalized on Bhutto’s death, visiting the hospital where she was declared dead, blasting Musharraf for providing Bhutto with insufficient security, and calling for a reunification of Bhutto’s Pakistan Peoples Party and his own Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

    Bhutto’s assassination once again spotlights the need for the U.S. to formulate a feasible Pakistan policy, something I have called for previously.
    You can read the entire symposium -- which includes contributions from Bill Roggio, Jonathan Foreman, and Mansoor Ijaz, among others -- here. For more on our policy options in Pakistan, see the cover story that I wrote for the Weekly Standard back in October, "While Pakistan Burns."

    al Qaeda in Pain

    Isn't al Qaeda faced with some law on diminishing returns?

    For 6 years USA has hunted al Qaeda and the Taliban 24/7 killing or arresting them.
    Binny is 60 feet deeper into his cave this year.

    And it feels like the terrorist activity is down and less violent.

    One possibility is USA is having an impact on their reserves.
    They are not quite as able to recruit as fast as they are kinetically removed.

    In the past 3 or 4 videos Biny and Omar have released were ( in order ) threating, suggesting, apologizing and a town meeting Q&A. All focused on solving recruiting problems.

    THEY are hurting for members.
    Maybe consider a wipe out of ALL recruiting sites for 3 months ( all terrorist sites )
    Cut off most of the supply of recruits by stopping Internet recruiting.
    Or a major effort in the Info war.
    Some anti-recruiting effort, would be a force multiplier RIGHT NOW.

    At some point this becomes a policing action with the diminishing membership.
    I bet NYC is the only Police dept. that is equipped to handle IED's.
    Maybe a hundred Hunter killer sniper teams ( Running Hammer Ops ) each with air support,
    would be more effective than roaming platoons of Armored vech. ( Hammer/Anvil Ops )

    Switch from defense to pursuit. As ALL locations can't be protected.

    In the big picture this all looks good.

    These are/were unnecessary risks she was taking. al Qaeda killed her.

    Who was incharge of her security?

    Taliban, soon rock or hard palce !

    Karzai and Musharraf hold talks on fighting militants
    Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai pledged on Wednesday to share intelligence and tighten border controls to quash increasing attacks by militants linked to the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai
    The meeting between the two leaders came amid a wave of violence in Pakistan blamed on local Islamic extremists in the largely lawless border region. A suicide bombing during a prayer service at a mosque Friday killed 56 people and an attack on a military convoy in the area Sunday killed nine. “People from both the countries are suffering under the hands of extremism and terrorism,” Musharraf said at a joint news conference on Wednesday evening. The violence has led to disputes between the two US allies in the war on terror, with Afghan officials saying the militants are using bases inside Pakistan to orchestrate attacks against Karzai’s government and Pakistan denying the accusation.

    A recent US intelligence report indicated that al-Qaeda may be regrouping in North Waziristan, a tribal region where militants have.....

    world money markets, ( Secret War? )

    Two excellent reads:
    Europe and the West are trying to improve short term liquidity.Expand.
    ( Linked to sub-prime loans, and ? )
    The cost to borrow in euros plunged after the European Central Bank added an unprecedented $500 billion to the banking system as part of a global effort to ease credit-market gridlock through year-end.

    China is trying to curb "excessive liquidity".Contract.
    The Chinese government, which spent 2007 trying to prevent the country's economy overheating, caught investors on the hop this week with the sixth interest rate rise of the year, adding to indications that it will intensify its efforts to cool the economy in the coming 12 months.

    They both speak of a 7 yr, time frame.

    The biggest concerted effort by central banks in six years to restore confidence in global money markets is showing little sign of success. SOURCE:


    China's Economic view of USA.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Wachovia Capital markets analyst Douglas Sipkin on Monday lowered his fourth-quarter estimate for Merrill Lynch & Co., forecasting a loss on further expected writedowns of collateralized debt obligations.
    Dec. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Merrill Lynch & Co. will receive a cash infusion of as much as $6.2 billion from Singapore's Temasek Holdings Pte. and Davis Selected Advisors LP. Merrill Lynch & Co., reeling from the biggest loss in its 93-year history, will receive a cash infusion of as much as $6.2 billion from Singapore's Temasek Holdings Pte. and Davis Selected Advisors LP.


    Who is draining liquidity?
    "CPI is going to be very important. The Fed has injected massive amounts of liquidity and they don't seem to be getting any major impact. We still have a credit crunch," said Paul Mendelsohn, chief investment strategist at Windham Financial Services in Charlotte, Vermont.


    Paradigm Intel, and inductive reasoning indicates the possibility of a Global monetary cash flow problem. Currently focused on short term liquidity, it has the momentum to spread.
    China is heavy and the West & Europe are short?

    $100 bbl oil is accumulating significant economic pain world wide.

    A publication by GIMF—an analysis of the global strategy of Al-Qaeda—is even more lucid. Under the title "Al-Qaeda's War is Economic not Military," wonders if there have been any strange or unusual transactions by world players.

    All of this points to at least a recession. And maybe some manipulation, intentional or not.


    1) Large country pulling funds.
    2) Sub-prime some how affecting money markets
    3) Derivatives based on Money Market rates: crashing?

    Any other explanations? comment please.
