Rusty over at Jawa Reports has picked up on a interesting
We've speculated about this behind the scenes and hinted at it here, but I pointed this out to AllahP yesterday and he makes note of it today. It's worth another post because this LA Times piece seems to confirm -- or, at least, give some credence to -- our earlier speculation that the capture of an al Qaeda courier might have inadvertently given Mullah Baradar's location away.
I'm building my post on his hypothesis and adding
some Intel and pushing it with Paradigm Intel.
The al Qaeda cult had the most number
and good quality hackers.
We hunted them all.
Their hackers were above script
kiddies, and good social engineers,
and huge egos. And had a good
working knowledge of the criminal
paradigm on the Internet.
"Irhabi 007" was the reason our
worked switched to counter terrorism.
I've worked as an Internet Anthropologist
for over 12 years now and I went to where
the money was. For a while we were doing
I was working a cyber detective agency,
tracking down Internet crooks.
I read what "Irhabi 007" was doing
and his actions and I knew we could
track him with iur BSU's , and knew there would be more
terrorist Internet personnel along shortly.
Todate we have publicly admitted to burning
over 45 al Qaeda cult and Taliban webmasters
and hackers, and posted their real IPs and locations.
( some of the older readers will remember
all the skull and cross bones across the
top of my blog, it was slowing down the
page lode, G )
Well the al Qaeda went to the Internet
not as a strategic plan, but as a last resort.
They couldn't use mail or phones any more,
so as a means of communication they fell
back to the Internet. When they were denied
And after many years they felt they couldn't
trust the Internet either, and fell back
( even though the Internet is 10x safer than
human messengers. G )
Most recently their videos were released
to "news sources" first, not to the forums first.
As they not understanding the WWW feel it isn't
Which is why they reverted to posting something
on the forums about changing phone numbers and
locations to the chain of command, it was the fastest
and most efficient method.
The old messenger system reverting to WWW
US and Paki caught one of these couriers.
Paper lists, names addresses phone numbers,
accounts, chain of command etc.
And expect more action shortly.
This could bring al Qaeda down,
and open the door for USA to go
