    Observations...Paradigm Intel

    There is a communication dis-connect between Iran and USA.

    On 911 George was told the WTC was hit twice, and the Pentagon but he was told something else too.
    That USA had intel there was a NUKE in New York city.

    George didn't come back to DC they flew him to a nuke shelter, someplace he could run the government from.

    Now George is a Texan, and this hide and wait kinda of felt like runnin.

    And George holds up someplace that MIGHT be safe.
    And he remembers the assassination attempt on his father by Saddam.
    And thinks he,George Bush is going down in History as the President
    during a Nuclear pearl harbor.

    His staff were working on speeches for different senerios, single nuke attack,
    multiple nuke attacks, what to say, how to calm the country, estimate casualties.

    And a lot of prayin'n promicin, "God don't let this happen and I'll do this and this and that."

    They have already lived through a nuclear attack and did recovery planning.

    Now abberjonny in Iran starts talking BS about a nuke bomb.
    And burning up Israel or USA troops.....and George remembers.
    Right now USA thinks Iranian Gov. is NUTZ.
    Remember taking the USA embassy hostage?
    Only because it was Carter did Iran not get Invaded then.
    ( and right now as a super power, they don't care what Iran thinks, or rest of world. )
    The day of 911, USA was threatened by nuke, George was boss then.
    George was scared and angry, he is NOT going through that again.
    This ain't gonna happen.

    Right after 911 a telegram went out to 6 countrys. It was from USA and threatened Nuclear WAR and was followed up by a visit from the USA Ambassadors.

    George knows he will never let the Iranians get a NUKE now, not after what he has been through.

    Iran is playing with a gun with a hair trigger.

    Iran thinks its a BB gun:
    its a 30-06.

    Gerald & B.
    ....I pray George does not use Nukes, but then he has Cheny to hold him in check.

    Accuses Al-Qaida of Stoking Infighting Among Iraqi Insurgents

    By Evan Kohlmann

    The 1920 Revolution Brigades -- a prominent Sunni militant group linked to the Iraqi Muslim Brotherhood -- has issued an irate response to recent criticisms by Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and other spokesmen for Al-Qaida's "Islamic State of Iraq." In its statement, the 1920 Brigades dismissed these claims as "an effort at settling a score or possibly even the product of a personal agenda." The 1920 Revolution Brigades also issued its own set of counter-allegations, accusing Al-Qaida in Iraq of engaging in a consistent pattern of treachery, deceit, and murder. An English translation of the statement is now available for download c/o the NEFA Foundation website:

    "Do not listen to those of your brothers who became enslaved by their own insecurities and fell into a trap… Dear brothers… you should know that the snake has a head and a tail. The head is the infidel American occupiers, their allies, and their agents—and the tail is your own neighbors who have sought to stray from the principles of Islam and decided instead to be used by the enemy… We inform you that the ISI’s denials about forcing other jihadi factions into joining the Al-Qaida organization are false, and the evidence for this is our own practical experience dealing with Al-Qaida in Abu Ghraib. They forced one of our brigades, the Jaffar al-Tayyar Brigade, to join them and they kept increasing pressure on them until the brigade was forced to defend itself… We would like to remind you that Muharib al-Jabouri (commander of the 1920 Revolution Brigades) was asked to swear an oath of allegiance to Al-Qaida, but he refused because he believed that the Al-Qaida organization had no right either to establish an ‘Islamic State’ without first consulting other factions nor to fight against those who refuse to join its state. Unfortunately, that was exactly what happened when fighting broke between the 1920 Revolution Brigades and the ISI that persisted until the joint agreement signed [between us]... In reality, the people who were murdered and tortured were fighters from the 1920 Revolution Brigades: Omar Abdel Razaaq and his two friends. Omar was captured [by Al-Qaida] during the cease-fire and resulting peace talks that concluded with the February 4 joint agreement... After Al-Qaida promised not to cause any harm to Omar, his dead body was sent to his family... We wonder, does the Al-Qaida organization look down upon the sacrifices of others and choose only to glorify its own?”

    Blackwater to the rescue

    Has Blackwater "lost" any clients?
    Video of the October 3 rescue of Polish Ambassador Edward Pietrzy show just how risky the maneuver was for the skilled Blackwater helicopter pilot.
    It's no small thing to land a helicopter with its spinning rotor blades into a city street. Apart from possible terrorists and insurgents, the real dangers to the crew were the many lightposts and telephone and electrical lines that bordered the landing area.
    The Blackwater "Little Bird" is shown landing, with high lamp posts on the right and what appear to be telephone or electrical poles on the left. The lower photo shows phone or electrical wires strung across the street. The slightest pilot error, shift in weight or unexpected wind could have caused havoc with the helicopter and with the people on the ground. The mission, however, was a complete success.

    Insurgent groups condemn al-Qaida

    NBC: Insurgent groups condemn al-Qaida tactics

    By Evan Kohlmann

    Rich Gardella and the NBC News Investigative Unit have picked up on my recent postings here on the CTBlog about the growing infighting pitting Sunni insurgents (including avowed jihadists) against Al-Qaida's "Islamic State of Iraq":

    "In a development experts call a significant shift, Iraqi insurgent groups are speaking out against al-Qaida and its brutally violent tactics. Last week, two groups, Asaeb al-Iraq al-Jihadiya (aka 'the Iraqi Jihad Union') and the 1920 Revolution Brigades (aka 'Hamas in Iraq') issued statements accusing al-Qaida's Iraq wing, al-Qaida in Iraq, of brutally killing their fighters and commanders, as well as women and children. 'They have killed them and mutilated their bodies,' reads an English translation of the Iraq Jihad Union's statement prepared for the NEFA Foundation, a non-profit terrorism research organization... NBC News terrorism analyst Evan Kohlmann first reported the statements on Kohlmann believes such strong public criticism of al-Qaida in Iraq by other insurgent groups in Iraq is a very significant development. With these two new statements last week, Kohlmann says, 'every single major insurgent group — with the exception of the Ansar al-Sunna Army — has now issued a statement condemning al-Qaida. These are hard-core jihadi groups saying this. These are former al-Qaida allies saying this'... Kohlmann, who closely monitors jihadi Web sites, says the statements are causing an online ruckus in jihadi chat forums, with heated exchanges dividing nationalist Islamists who are increasingly critical of al-Qaida and al-Qaida believers who defend it. 'The reaction has been incredible,' Kohlmann says. 'There's a huge outpouring of resentment.' He says there are many angry postings against the groups who have criticized al-Qaida. He says one of the groups just put out a second statement in response, arguing that al-Qaida's online defenders 'don't know what's going on' in Iraq."

    DEFEATIST: Ex-general: Iraq a 'nightmare' for US,

    Ex-general: Iraq a 'nightmare' for US
    Retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, who commanded coalition troops for a year beginning June 2003, cast a wide net of blame for both political and military shortcomings in Iraq that helped open the way for the insurgency — such as disbanding the Saddam-era military and failing to cement ties with tribal leaders and quickly establish civilian government after Saddam was toppled.

    "Was" maybe better, he never had control, his job was to command.

    When asked when he saw that the mission was going awry, he responded: "About the 15th of June 2003" — the day he took command." Said Sanchez.

    And he took the command anyway, why?

    Sanchez avoided singling out at any specific official. But he did criticize the State Department, the National Security Council, Congress and the senior military leadership during what appeared to be a broad indictment of White House policies and a lack of leadership to oppose them.

    Sanchez told the gathering that he thought he had made mistakes and said he didn't always fully appreciate the secondary affects of actions the military took, so he includes his own name in the
    'broad indictment'?

    He did deny reports that he and then-Iraqi administrator L. Paul Bremer were not on speaking terms.

    Sanchez retired from the Army last year, two years after he completing a tumultuous year as commander of all U.S. forces in Iraq. As he stepped down, he called his career a casualty of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.

    He was never charged with anything but he was not promoted in the aftermath of the prisoner abuse reports. He was criticized by some for not doing more to avoid mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners.

    "The American military finds itself in an intractable situation ... America has no choice but to continue our efforts in Iraq," said Sanchez, who works as a consultant training U.S. generals. HOW IRONIC, DEFEATIST training USA generals???.

    Sanchez offered few solutions.

    The Bush administration didn't directly address Sanchez's critical views.

    "We appreciate his service to the country," said White House spokesman Trey Bohn. He added that as U.S. commander in Iraq Gen. David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker have said: "There is more work to be done, but progress is being made in Iraq and that's what we're focused on now."

    Six Iraqi Resistance groups form Political Council for the Iraqi Resistance.

    Six Iraqi Resistance groups form Political Council for the Iraqi Resistance.

    In a dispatch posted at 2:26pm Makkah time Thursday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that six Iraqi Resistance organizations affiliated with the Salafi Islamist current and the Muslim Brotherhood organization have announced that they had forced the Political Council for the Iraqi Resistance.

    Mafkarat al-Islam reported the organizations issued an appeal calling for the liberation of Iraq from the activity of the foreign occupiers on the path to complete independence. The six groups in the new Political Council represent two of the five main blocs of forces that have been engaged in armed struggle against occupation in Iraq.

    Four of the six Resistance groups that have combined to form the Council are the constituent members of the “Front for Reform and Jihad,” specifically: the Islamic Army, the Army of the Mujahideen, the Army of the Fatiheen, and the Shari‘ah Board of the Ansar as-Sunnah. These organizations reflect a Sururi Salafi Islamist orientation.

    The other two member organizations in the new Political Council are the Hamas In Iraq Movement, and the Islamic Front for Iraqi Resistance, (known by its Arabic acronym Jami‘). These organizations have their roots in the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

    Three major blocs engaged in armed struggle against the US occupation in Iraq that are not affiliated with the new Political Council are: the Front for Jihad and Change, an organization inspired by the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq; the Supreme Command for the Jihad and Liberation, a newly formed umbrella organization of 22 Resistance groups that have chosen Baath Party leader ‘Izzat Ibrahim ad-Duri as their commander; and the so-called Islamic State of Iraq – the front organization for al-Qa‘idah.

    Musharraf says: reconciliation

    Musharraf says:
    He said he favours talks with the Taliban as they are suffering much more casualties than the Afghan or coalition forces. “It may work it may not work. But there is no harm in talking and good sense may prevail.”


    “If you want reconciliation, you have to overlook the past. That is the only way to reconcile, otherwise, you remain on a confrontationist mode.”

    Speaking about the situation in North Waziristan, Musharraf said it was very sad. The troops while trying to clear a road block in the area were taken hostage by the miscreants as they (troops) thought that a ceasefire was in place. “They acted unprofessionally. They should have taken some precautionary measures.”

    He said the government was trying to address the situation through negotiations but he does not know how long it will take to resolve. “We have to deal with the situation from a position of strength. I think we will reach a solution.”

    About Washington’s desire to do more in the war against terror, Musharraf said elements in Washington and the media do not know what he was up against in the fight against terrorism, which has a multi-pronged approach of action and development in the troubled areas.

    He lamented that Washington had promised $150 million per annum over the next five years for the development projects in those areas but has not paid a penny over the past one year. “Those who talk (of not doing enough) should better look at what they are doing to support us in executing what we are doing.”

    Clashes erupt in North Waziristan Local Taliban reject permanent ceasefire


    MIRANSHAH: Clash between security forces and local Taliban resumed in North Waziristan, a day after when the army allowed tribesmen to bury their loved ones.

    Rejecting the impression of permanent ceasefire, the local Taliban have confirmed death of their 20 colleagues in four days fierce fighting and threatened to intensity attack if army did not halt attacks on civilian.

    Political authorities said that the Taliban equipped with automatic weapons launched attack and fire rockets at Amin, Banda and Gora graveyard checkposts of security forces on night between Thursday and Friday in Miranshah, BBC reported.

    The security forces retaliated and fired arterially shell. However, no loss of life was reported from both sides in the attacks. Two security personnel were wounded when their vehicle coming from Bannu to Miranshah hit with a landmine in area of FR Baka Khail. The injured were shifted to Bannu Hospital where they are in stable condition, hospital sources said.

    On the other hand, a tribal jirga on the request of local administration is trying its level best for ceasefire. The personnel of local administration under leadership of former National Assembly member Maulana Naik Zaman held the jirga, however, the administration did not tell anything about outcome of the meeting.

    Meanwhile, Taliban spokesman Ahmed Ullah Ahmadi said according to the decision of Taliban Shoora we are not ready for permanent ceasefire in the North Waziristan. He made it clear if the government did not halt attack on civilians then attack on security forces will be intensified. If Government wants to show its power then it should face Taliban in open ground instead of attacking civilian, he demanded.

    Kidnappers beheaded in public by vigilante group

    Kidnappers beheaded in public by vigilante group

    PESHAWAR: Militants in Pakistan publicly beheaded six alleged kidnappers and lashed three others in an outbreak of vigilante violence yesterday.

    The incidents were the latest in a series blamed on hardliners who are seeking to emulate Afghanistan's Taliban regime by introducing harsh Islamic laws and punishments.

    In the lawless Mohmand tribal district bordering Afghanistan, pro-Taliban rebels decapitated six members of a kidnapping-for-ransom gang after a blood-soaked feud, local government official Miraj Khan said.

    It started when militants on Thursday night raided the house of the gang's chief in connection with the death of one of their colleagues, the official said.

    The gang leader opened fire, killing four of the militants, but they later killed him and five of his family members, burned down his house and seized another six of his followers.

    "The militants publicly beheaded all six of them while holding funeral prayers for their own colleagues," Miraj said.

    Meanwhile, a hardline Islamic vigilante group lashed three alleged kidnappers in front of a crowd of 20,000 people in Matta, a town in the conservative Swat Valley in North West Frontier Province.

    "Such punishments will deter others from committing crimes," hardline cleric Maulana Fazal Ullah said in his sermon before the lashings by the group which calls itself the Eagle Force.

    A committee of clerics found the three men guilty of kidnapping two young girls and sentenced to 15, 25 and 30 lashes respectively, which were administered outside a religious school, Ullah said.

    Police confirmed that the three men were publicly whipped but said that they were unable to take any action because Ullah had a large following of armed men.


    Taliban execute 12 in revenge

    By our correspondent

    GHALANAI: The local Taliban killed 12 persons in Dowayzai area of Pandyali Tehsil of Mohmand Agency on Friday to avenge the killing of four of their colleagues.

    Six of the dead had their throat slit. The Taliban also threatened the local people against offering their funeral prayers. Four Taliban were killed on Thursday while two others sustained bullet injuries during an armed clash with a local tribesman, Yusuf. To avenge the killings, the Taliban gunned down Yusuf Khan along with his five companions and kidnapped eight other persons, including two children of his family. They also set ablaze his house.

    The Taliban, after offering funeral prayers of their four slain colleagues, started slaughtering six of the kidnapped persons on Friday. Mercifully, they spared the two children. Two brothers of Yusuf Khan, Arif and Daulat, were among those who were slaughtered. The two others whose throats were cut were identified as Asad, a resident of Bajaur, and Shah Zameen, while the identity of the remaining two could not be ascertained.

    Bodies of the slain tribesmen were put in the open as the Taliban threatened the locals against offering their funeral prayers. The Taliban also torched the houses of their three other rivals. Meanwhile, Political Agent Mohmand Agency Dr Kazim Niaz held a meeting with tribal elders at Ghalanai Rest House. He asked the tribal elders to play their role in maintaining the law and order in their respective areas under the collective responsibility clause of the Frontier Crimes Regulations.

    He said that a Jirga of tribal elders would be convened soon after Eidul Fitr and the future line of action adopted to contain militancy in the tribal agency. AFP adds from Peshawar: A hard-line vigilante group publicly lashed three alleged kidnappers in front of a crowd of 20,000 people in the Swat valley on Friday, witnesses and police said.

    The crowd shouted “God is Great” as the men were whipped in the Matta town. “Such punishments will deter others from committing crimes,” hard-line cleric Maulana Fazalullah said in his sermon before the lashings by the group which calls itself the Eagle Force.

    The three men were found guilty of kidnapping two young girls by a committee of clerics and sentenced to 15, 25 and 30 lashes, respectively, which were administered outside a religious school, said the cleric.

    “The government is not punishing criminals and that is why the crime rate is rising,” he added. Police confirmed that three men were publicly whipped but said that they were unable to take any action because Fazalullah had a large following of armed men. “He has declared a war against the government and it is not the police’s job to fight a war,” a senior police official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

    BAGHDAD, Oct 12 (KUNA) -- Iraqi Army on Friday captured a key al-Qaeda leader in Muqdadiya district of Diyala province 57 kilometers northeastern Baghdad along with one of his aides and separately four others, including the Mufti of the so-called Islamic state of Iraq.
    Brigades belonging to the Army's fifth squadron managed to make the arrest of the leader and his aide on Thursday through a raid, Diyala Operations' Command said in a statement without providing any further details.
    Another statement by the Command said that the other raid that resulted in arresting the four suspects, took place inside Shams village south of Baquba. (end) mhg.hb KUNA 121328 Oct 07NNNN


    LONDON (Reuters) - Osama bin Laden could hide more easily in a city than a remote tribal region, a former Pakistani intelligence chief said on Tuesday, challenging the notion that the al Qaeda leader is probably holed up in a mountain cave.

    Lieutenant-General Asad Durrani, former head of the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI), said news of outsiders' presence travels fast in the tribal areas and it would be hard to keep it secret for years.

    "In the countryside or in tribal areas ... it's difficult to hide yourself because there people live ... and operate in a manner in which finding out about unusual presence is very important," Durrani told Reuters in an interview in London.

    He said it was true that tribal customs placed great value on showing hospitality and not betraying a guest. "In the tribal code, anyone who seeks your protection has to be defended, if necessary with your life."

    However, he added: "I am not sure over a period of four, five or six years that it would be possible even for the tribesmen to keep his presence under wraps."

    Such information would have traveled or been divulged, given the incentives, Durrani said in a reference to the $25 million U.S. bounty on bin Laden's head.....


    In the six years since the September 11 attacks on the United States and subsequent U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, Western intelligence officials have frequently said they suspect he is hiding somewhere in the inaccessible mountains along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.


    Gen Bergner said the operation targeted a safe house used by a senior al-Qa'eda figure in Iraq, known as Muthanna, who was killed along with seven colleagues.

    "Muthanna was a key facilitator of the movement of foreign terrorists once they crossed into Iraq from Syria," he said.

    Officials have refused to discuss efforts to track down those named in the files. The number of British terrorists involved has not been disclosed.

    Living wills and pledges of martyrdom were also found. "Other documents included a formal pledge from foreign terrorists who were committed to suicide operations," Gen Bergner said.

    "They came from countries including Libya, Morocco, Syria, Algeria, Oman, Yemen, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, France and the United Kingdom."

    British special forces, spearheaded by the SAS, are deployed in Iraq to hunt down al-Qa'eda's "foreign legion".

    They include MI6 officials, military intelligence and the Special Reconnaissance Regiment.

    Websites linked to al-Qa'eda in Iraq have targeted foreign sympathisers, particularly for suicide missions. The anti-terrorist squad has conducted several raids in Britain since 2003, when the first report of a British suicide bomber killing himself in Iraq emerged. SOURCE:

    Iran cleric warns on country's worsening situation

    Iran cleric warns on country's worsening situation

    20 hours ago
    TEHRAN (AFP) — Iran's former nuclear negotiator, in remarks published on Thursday, sharply criticised the country's policy over its controversial nuclear programme and said sanctions were hitting the economy.
    Hassan Rowhani, who is also a member of two influential bodies, was quoted by Etemad Melli newspaper as saying: "At the moment, we are under threats in the international domain more than ever."
    Tehran's opponents were increasing, he said, adding: "The country's diplomacy is successful when it does not let the enemy unite other countries against our national interests."
    While Iran is in talks with the UN nuclear watchdog to clear up key issues in its nuclear experiments, major powers engaged in talks on the disputed nuclear programme are to meet next week in Europe to discuss tightening UN sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
    Tehran has been slapped by two sets of UN sanctions over its atomic agenda which the West, led by the United States, charges are aimed at developing nuclear weapons. Iran denies the charge and says the programme is purely peaceful and aimed at generating electricity.
    "Unfortunately our enemies are increasing in number. Until yesterday, it was only the United States and Britain. Today however, France, with even more enthusiasm, has sided with the United States."
    He did not mention any name but his comments echoed criticism on the policies of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
    Rowhani, a prominent cleric and member of the Experts Assembly and the Expediency Council, touched upon Iran's worsening economic situation despite the increased oil prices of close to 80 dollars per barrel.
    "Unfortunately, there are no signs of a dynamic and healthy economy. If we had a multilateral and precise plan, many of our economic problems would be resolved."
    Ahmadinejad came to power on a populist platform that promised to improve the economic situation of ordinary people, based on the country's oil income as the OPEC number-two oil member. He has, however, been criticised by economists for lack of management and not delivering on his promises.
    "Our situation is not favourable ... the effects of these pressures is seen in our economic and political relations and our situation worsens day by day," Rowhani said of the UN sanctions which are played down by Ahmadinejad.
    "Someone would say it is not important, but it is important for our people, since people pay its price in their economic life," he said.

    19 had misleading headlines,
    no mention of terrorists, gives false impression.

    3 didn't mention civilian deaths.

    Mentioned both civilian and terrorist deaths.

    Guess we shouldn't just scan the headlines, misleading.

    What does this say about the slant of reporting and the fight for the hearts and minds ? Even in USA?

    USA news sources 7 days behind events and Anti-American.

    The news about the White American training terrorist in Somalia we posted 7 days ago.

    Part of the problem maybe lack of involvement.

    The Military knows about embedding news reporters.
    In World War II the American people were effectively embedded, with ration coupons, metal drives, collecting pots and pans.

    The American people were part of the battle and asked to sacrifice for victory, there were even victory gardens.

    In the current GWOT the people were asked to shop, not to let the economy flag.

    The Dems are anti-Bush and that is exhibiting its self in anti-American activities.
    Like the Genocide bill and Turkey.

    A non-binding resolution saying that the World War I-era killings constituted a "genocide". Non-binding, why even bother, and why NOW???
    The measure jeopardizes relations with an important ally at a time Turkey's cooperation in Iraq and Afghanistan are crucial. And could effect the safty of our troops in Iraq. 70 percent of U.S. air cargo headed for Iraq -- including 95 percent of new mine-resistant vehicles -- goes through Turkey, and Turkish reaction to the resolution could put those supply lines in jeopardy.

    Committee chairman Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.) sponsor of the bill, could be carring the weight of Dead American troops on his conscience from his ANTI-TROOP ATTITUDES.
    On May 3, 2000, Lantos was involved in an automobile accident while driving on Capitol Hill. Lantos drove over a young boy's foot and then failed to stop his vehicle. He was later fined over the incident for inattentive driving, not hit and run but "inattentive driving". What would they have charged you or I with?

    Everyone has known about this Genocide since about 1919, and Lantos feels the need for some public attention NOW and puts American troops in danger for some political mileage and some anti-Bush points. On an issue that can be brought up anytime in the future.
    What do you think about Tom endangering American troops?
    You can contact Lantos here.

    Part of the problem maybe al Qaeda's successfully propaganda campaign, some Americans maybe believing what they have been putting out. WHY WOULD TOM BRING THIS UP NOW.

    While I'm on my soap box I hope al Qaeda doesn't hook up with the "League of American 14 year old boys", I think it is a direct result of government meddling,

    When I went to school you had respect or dealt with the Nuns ruler, we got smacked, slapped and hit. Didn't hurt us and and we had respect and never shot anyone. NRA even sponsored after school target practice 50 cents. Would we dare do that today?

    If someone hits a kid today for disrespect they call the cops, the first time a kid is held responsible for his actions is when he turns 18 and is sent to prison. What a waste.

    I mouthed off to the Milkman one day when I was around 14 and he chased me thru the neighborhood and kicked me in the ass, I didn't mouth off again. Today the punks are so mouthy cause they know they won't be held responsible for their mouth, and there is no consequences to being a punk.

    And the schools just don't teach "critical thinking". As evidenced by the 911 conspirators and other confused bodys mouthing other terrorist lines.

    And the publics belief that "LAWS" stop crime.
    Gun control laws to "protect" the public.
    If gun control laws worked we would have

    If laws stopped crime there would be no bank robbers.
    Laws punish criminals not stop crime.

    And when an assassin goes to a school to kill kids,
    it must bring him some relief, FEELING OF SAFETY knowing it is
    and his gun will be the only one there,
    I mean its so much safer/easier for the assassin.

    When did the public loose its ability
    for critical thinking.?


    USA gave Japan, Germany and Kuwait back to their people and didn't steal any oil or natural resources, but now they think USA is going to steal Iraqs oil???

    USA screws up plenty enough by accident, SNAFU, but I just don't understand how Americans can believe what AQ puts out.

    And I have noticed the reporters don't know what they are talking about, ask stupid questions, and make statements based on sound bytes not research and then interrupt guest speakers just no common sense.

    I remember during the first gulf war, a reporter talking to Saddam, an exclusive, he was getting ready to say he was going to release the American captives, and the reporter broke for a commerical.

    And during one of the first embed news broadcasts the Female reporter was interupting the reporter who was under fire with some inane question, I sent her an email telling her to "shut to hell up" when the embed reporter was talking that when he was talking she had nothing to say that "WE" wanted to hear. After that she never interrupted an embed reporter again.

    Fox O'riley , every time I come across him channel surfing I just change the channel, thats a very powerful response to his methods, the clown of spin, just change the channel.
    If enough do that he will be gone.

    Misleading Reporting:

    NEWS: No guts, cowards.

    USA has a war the public is not 'EMBEDDED' WITH....

    Peace in North Waziristan?

    Pushing for peace in North Waziristan

    Red agencies/ districts controlled by the Taliban; purple is defacto control; yellow is under threat.

    As the fighting between the Taliban and the military in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal agency nears the end of the fifth day, the Pakistani military has halted attacks in the town of Mir Ali in order to allow civilians to bury the dead. Raids and airstrikes have been reported in the Mosaki, Hurmiz, Asokhel, and Hyder Khel. Multiple reports indicate the Pakistani government is seeking a negotiated end to the fighting.

    The Pakistani Air Force conducted bombing runs in Mir Ali and the surrounding areas in an attempt to strike at Taliban and al Qaeda positions. The fighting in Mir Ali on October 9 alone is reported to have killed 72 Pakistanis, many of them civilians. Fifteen Taliban were reported killed in Hurmiz, Asokhel, and Hyder Khel today, while the Pakistani government has officially claimed 47 troops have been killed in the five-day battle; reports of higher casualties exist.

    The decision to use air power against the Taliban was borne out of frustration over the pounding the military has taken in North Waziristan. "Over the past few months soldiers and paramilitary troops have been targeted by suicide bombers, blown up by roadside bombs, kidnapped and had their throats slit," Reuters reported. "Militants in South Waziristan humiliated the army by taking captive about 250 soldiers in late August." Scores of soldiers and police have been captured in separate engagements throughout the Northwest Frontier Province.

    Morale has suffered among security forces stationed in Waziristan. Sick of being on the receiving end, the Pakistan army lashed back last weekend, unleashing fighter jets, helicopter gunships, artillery and ground troops on militants.

    The recovery of comrades' decapitated, charred corpses fuelled anger in the army, according to a senior intelligence officer. "It was too much, We couldn't take it any more," he said. "That's why air power is now being used against them."

    Governor Ali Jan Orakzai in 2004, when he was a general in the Pakistani Army. Click picture to view.

    Despite the repeated attacks on Pakistani forces, the government is seeking a political solution with the Taliban in the tribal regions. The peace efforts are led by Governor Ali Jan Orakzai, the architect of the North Waziristan Accord and a strong advocate for further deals in Bajaur, Swat, and Mohmand agencies.

    Orakzai is seeking to "renegotiate the peace agreements, introducing more stringent measures, and to win over the militants and tribespeople with the promise of a nine-year, $2 billion development program," The New York Times reported. "The governor said the military would be used where required. But he expressed the hope that once local security forces were better trained and equipped, the government could withdraw the military from the tribal areas, deploying troops only on the Afghan border."

    Orakzai has pushed for the signing of peace agreements with the Taliban in the tribal agencies and the settled districts of the Northwest Frontier Province despite clear evidence the Taliban bypassed the accords immediately after signing the agreements. The Taliban violated the terms of the accord when it established a shadow administration, opened recruiting offices, taxed the populations, enforced sharia law, attacked Pakistani troops, and conducted a campaign of murder and intimidation against its rivals.

    Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and allied terror groups operate 29 training camps in North and South Waziristan. Senior al Qaeda operatives are believed to be operating in North Waziristan, including Hamza bin Laden -- Osama bin Laden's son and possible successor in al Qaeda -- and Abu Kasha.

    In January 2007, an American military intelligence official told The Long War Journal that Abu Kasha is the key link between al Qaeda's Shura Majlis -- main Shura or consultive body -- and the Taliban. Abu Kasha is an Iraqi Arab who is runs his organization in Mir Ali. He has two local commanders, Imanullah and Haq Nawaz Dawar, who administer local al Qaeda offices.

    Abu Kasha has a working relationship and close communication with the Uzbeki terror groups, including the Islamic Jihad Group run by Najimuddin Uzbek, who also operates out of North Waziristan.

    North Waziristan also shelters Taliban commander Sadiq Noor, who runs his operations from Miranshah and hosts Taliban and Al Qaeda meetings from his offices. Noor and his Taliban conduct sharia courts, adjudicate local disputes, announce punishment, collect taxes, and run a private jail. Sadiq Noor is closely associated with JUI-F (Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazlur Rehman). He "fought on the Bagram front in Afghanistan against the Northern Alliance. He is also believed to support anti-U.S. entities in Khost, Afghanistan," The Jamestown Foundation reported. SOURCE:

    Al Qaeda Documents Show Internal Trouble

    By Kevin Whitelaw Thu Oct 11, 10:16 AM ET

    A new study released by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy examines the history of splits among the top leadership of al Qaeda and finds that the terrorist network may be more vulnerable than many officials suggest.

    "From its beginnings . . . al Qaeda has been at war with itself," says the report, which draws upon a trove of captured internal al Qaeda documents and correspondence released by the Department of Defense. The translated documents depict an organization of al Qaeda associates who frequently protest decisions made by al Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden, as well as his top deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    The report documents a constant theme of the group's leaders arguing over everything from immediate tactics to the wisdom of making the United States the group's primary target. It also shows how prejudices of the group's Arab leaders against their non-Arab affiliates and their former Taliban hosts repeatedly led to serious infighting and even some betrayals. The report's authors conclude that many of these splits remain a characteristic of al Qaeda today.

    "There is no evidence to suggest that it has overcome the persistent weaknesses identified in this report," they write, adding that the group's transition to a global "brand" name has created new vulnerabilities that could make it open to exploitation.

    "Lacking a broad command-and-control structure, al Qaeda Central finds itself unable to control the uses--and abuses--of its brand by self-starting 'affiliate' groups." They point to the gory tactics of the now deceased Abu Musab Zarqawi, the al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist who wreaked havoc in Iraq but alienated many of al Qaeda's potential supporters with his indiscriminate killing of other Muslims.

    al Qaeda suicide bombers, counter-productive

    Suicide Bombs Target Salahadin Awakening Leader

    By Daveed Gartenstein-Ross

    Yesterday, two suicide truck bombs targeted a leader of the Salahadin Awakening Council. (The Awakening movements that have sprouted up across Iraq during the past year are based on the model that experienced great success in the Anbar province.) The Times of London reports: "Up to 22 people were killed and many more wounded when two suicide truck bombs exploded in a town in northern Iraq today, targeting a police chief and a tribal leader who had joined forces with the US military against al-Qaeda."

    This is in line with al-Qaeda in Iraq's announced campaign of assassinations intended to coincide with Ramadan. As the MEMRI Blog reports, shortly after the assassination of Abdul Sattar al-Rishawi, an extremist web site published a list of names and photos titled "Pictures of the Infidels and Apostates Wanted by the Islamic State of Iraq." The accompanying message praised al-Rishawi's killing, and threatened other tribal leaders who opposed al-Qaeda:

    We killed your leader and sheikh on the first day of Ramadan, as we promised you. You should know that the ISI [Islamic State of Iraq] will prevent most of your [other] leaders from offering up their holiday prayers [on 'Id Al-Fitr at the end of the month of Ramadan]. You will never see 'Id Al-Fitr, because [the jihad fighters] have turned [this] Ramadan into a grave for the apostates. [Al-Rishawi] is the first... dead hypocrite of this month – [the month of] jihad and mujahideen – and will be followed by many others.

    The indispensable Bill Roggio notes that "al Qaeda has conducted several high-profile tribal assassinations" since this announcement -- including killing senior Salahadin Awakening Council member Sheikh Muawiya Jebara as he traveled near the provincial capital of Samarra.

    Yesterday's attack did not succeed in killing its intended target, Salahadin Awakening Council member Thamer Ibrahim Atallah. Local police chief Colonel Saad al-Nifous, another target of the attack, also escaped unharmed. However, both men lost family members in the attack. A senior military intelligence officer tells me in an e-mail that their survival "is really good news," since both men are "key allies in the province."

    This situation bears watching. The reversals that al-Qaeda experienced in Anbar and Diyala show the importance of tribal allies. Al-Qaeda in Iraq apparently hopes to decapitate the movement in Salahadin before it gains too much steam.

    October 10, 2007 06:33 PM Link


    The locals have better intel and sources than USA, al Qaeda will pay dearly for this.
    And it shows the locals how they must deal with AQ.

    Big stradegy error on AQ's part, but they are very scared and concerned about the sucess of the Awakening Councils, Islam will put an end to al qaeda, and AQ cannot survive without local support, ZARQAWI has admitted this in captured letters.

    fatwa against mixed marriage

    Special Dispatch Series - No. 1735
    October 11, 2007 No.1735
    Fatwa by Influential Islamic American Jurist: Marriage of Muslim Woman to Non-Muslim Man – Forbidden and Invalid

    A fatwa issued in August 2007 by the secretary-general of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America (AMJA), Dr. Sheikh Salah Al-Sawy, states that marriage between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man is forbidden and invalid, and that children born of such a union are illegitimate.

    The following are excerpts from the fatwa, which was posted on the website [1]

    "Marriage between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim [man] is forbidden and invalid - that is a consensus among Muslims. A [Muslim] woman who has taken the liberty [of marrying a non-Muslim man] has removed herself from the fold of the Muslim community - and one who has done so knowing that it is wrong, has done something strictly forbidden, and has committed an open [act of] abomination that may hurl her into the abyss of heresy and apostasy.

    "Some clerics hold that [a Muslim woman who marries a non-Muslim man] is considered a heretic from the very beginning [i.e. from the moment she marries], since the bond of marriage allows her to have sexual relations and intercourse [with her husband], and to take pleasure [in this], and it is inconceivable that she should commit the crime [of having intercourse] without the sanction [of a valid marriage].

    "The wisdom of the religious ban [against the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim man lies in] its preventing [the woman] from being tempted away from her faith. The Koran justifies this ban by saying that these marriages 'beckon [the believer] to the Fire [of Hell; Koran 2:221].' In other words, they lead to sins that doom [the sinner] to Hell... since [the woman] may be tempted to renounce [Islam], to doubt [the truth of] Islam, and to disparage its religious rituals.

    "Woman is weak by nature, and the guardianship of a [non-Muslim] man affects her powers of reasoning. [Marriage to a non-Muslim] may thus cause a woman to follow the ways [of her husband], or at least to abandon her [own] religion and neglect its rituals. [By so doing,] she is neither a Muslim nor one of the People of the Book [i.e. a Christian or Jew like her husband]...

    abductee refused court hearing

    Supreme Court refuses to hear claims of man from 4th Circuit case

    Associated Press - October 9, 2007 11:15 AM ET

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court terminated a lawsuit today from a man who claims he was abducted and tortured by the CIA.

    The court's ruling effectively endorses Bush administration arguments that state secrets would be revealed if the case were allowed to proceed.

    The case came from the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, which refused in March to reinstate the lawsuit by 44-year-old Khaled el-Masri. He alleged that he was kidnapped by CIA agents in Europe and held in an Afghan prison for four months in a case of mistaken identity. He has maintained that he wants an explanation and an apology.

    The administration has not publicly acknowledged that el-Masri was detained. Lower courts dismissed his suit after the administration asserted that state secrets would be revealed if the lawsuit were not blocked. The justices rejected his appeal without comment.


    USA might consider a consent decree, a million USD, and agree to the suit after the terror war.

    The Goodwill this would buy world wide would exceed cost a hundredfold.

    The world understands a mistake, error, and his release.

    The world finds it hard to understand the refusal of remedy for the error.

    It is expected he will be made whole in some fashion, after all it is America.

    MS-13 Round up, terrorist connection?

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Federal agents have arrested more than 1,300 suspected gang members, including 343 with violent criminal histories, in the past three months, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said Tuesday

    "Violent foreign-born gang members and their associates have more than worn out their welcome, and to them I have one message: good riddance," Julie L. Myers, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in a news release.

    Of those arrested, 374 face criminal charges, officials said. The rest face deportation, they said.

    During the nationwide crackdown, immigration and customs agents worked with law enforcement counterparts in 23 cities in what officials described as a "summer surge."

    The most arrests were made in the New York area (205) and Miami, Florida (160), but gang members were arrested in cities as small as Boise, Idaho, and Fort Smith, Arkansas.

    Myers told a Washington news conference that some of "the worst of the worst" gang offenders had been taken off U.S. streets.

    One of the gangs targeted has been MS-13, which is believed to be the fastest growing group in the United States as well as one of the most violent, the agency said.

    The FBI estimates MS-13 has about 10,000 members in the country, along with tens of thousands in Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador, where the gang originated in the late 1980s.

    "MS-13 still seems to be the primary gang and the most violent gang still out there, and it is penetrating throughout the United States," said Marcy Forman, director of investigations for the agency.

    Don Hunter, sheriff of Collier County in southwest Florida, said MS-13 was present in what he called the "upscale" community.

    "We are not unique, we have transnational gangs, we have homegrown gangs," Hunter told the news conference. But he said cooperation among federal and local agencies had made it possible to put a dent in gang operations.

    The sweep was part of the agency's Operation Community Shield anti-gang initiative, which started in 2005, and has resulted in arrests of more than 7,000 alleged members and their associates from more than 600 gangs, the agency said.

    Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of the American Congress for Truth, recently had the opportunity to testify before Congress about her concerns on the Islamic threat. She told members that various terrorist groups al-Qaida, Hezbollah, and Hamas, among others, are working with the MS-13 gang in smuggling terrorists across the Mexican border into the United States.

    "The MS-13 gang is bad news. They are thugs. They are murderers. They are as bad as the Islamic radicals. These guys do not think twice about killing. They will kill their own family members. And this is why they found a great ally in the terrorist organizations," says Gabriel.



    FBI: "Catholic" MS-13 won't team up with Islamic terrorists!?!

    Written by Reporterette
    Published January 14, 2005

    If Michael Chertoff is confirmed as Department of Homeland Security chief, he'll have his hands full reconciling conflicting positions within the administration regarding reported gang-terrorist activity.

    By now, many of us have heard of the reported link between El Salvadoran-based gang Mara Salvatrucha — MS-13 for short — and Islamic terrorists. (Michelle Malkin has good background here)

    In this morning's 9am ET hour of Fox New Live, reporterette Alyson Camerota said an FBI source told the network it was implausible that radical muslims would align themselves with a predominantly Catholic criminal gang.

    Are we to believe that MS-13 gangsters — criminals accused of raping handicapped girls and chopping off fingers with machetes — would never team up with Islamic terrorists for religious reasons?

    Camerota later ran a bite from Homeland Security official John Torres saying his agency had no evidence of a MS-13-al-Qaeda connection.

    October 10, 2007

    As Australian forces engage the Taliban with increasing ferocity, the Afghan Government is desperately trying to negotiate with hardliners, writes National Security Editor Tom Allard.

    FOR Afghanistan's embattled President, Hamid Karzai, it was the most ignominious of opening gambits. Desperate to start negotiations with the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar and his ally, the warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Karzai was promising government posts to the men in exchange for a peace deal that would end the escalating bloodshed in his homeland.

    Addressing the two tyrants as "esteemed" gentleman, Karzai pleaded from Kabul: "If I find their address, there is no need for them to come to me; I'll personally go there and get in touch with them."

    The extraordinary entreaty was made less than two weeks ago, the latest, and most grovelling, of several overtures to the extremists who harboured al-Qaeda and imposed a repressive, cruel and medievalist regime over the Afghan people.

    All the approaches have been quickly dismissed by the Taliban leadership, which cites the withdrawal of foreign forces as a precondition to any negotiations.

    "It was a humiliating act for Karzai but he wouldn't have done it without the support of the Bush Administration," says Professor Amin Saikal, director of the Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies at the Australian National University.

    Rangers think of Marines

    A little boy was standing in front of a mirror in the restroom at John F. Kennedy Airport, when in walked a Marine staff sergeant, dressed in his dress blues. The little boy turned to the Marine and said, "Wow! Are you a Marine?"

    The Marine replied, "Why, yes I am, young man. Would you like to wear my hat?"

    "Boy, would I!," said the little boy. He took the hat and placed it on his head and turned to admire himself in the mirror.

    As he was looking in the mirror, he heard the door open and through a ray of bright light, a man entered the room. But, this was not just a man -- he was more than a man. He was an Airborne Ranger.

    The little boy turned and went over to the soldier. As he approached him, he could see the reflection in his boots. His eyes widened as he stared up at the soldier's chest full of medals and combat ribbons. He tried to speak, but he couldn't. Finally, he took a deep breath, and managed to say, "Excuse me, Sir. Are you an Airborne Ranger?"

    The Ranger replied with a thunderous voice, "Why yes, I am!! Would you like to shine my boots?"

    The little boy smiled, and said, "Oh, no sir!! I'm not a Marine. I'm just wearing his hat!"

    USA Terrorist Paradigm out of sync

    Whitehouse report called for improved capacity to find and expel illegal aliens, "including criminals and potential terrorists."
    But the borders are wide open, administration's failure to push immigration reform through Congress doesn't make sense.

    Americans have to have a passport to go to Mexico or Canada now, but aliens can just walk across the border???

    If there is a serious attack in the USA, this paradigm disconnect will cause the defeat of Republicans for years.

    The NIE, which prefigured much of Tuesday's report, said Al-Qaeda had regrouped in Pakistan "and would not hesitate" to use weapons of mass destruction on the United States.

    BUT the borders are open?

    Storm Worm Rewrote the Botnet

    Storm Worm Rewrote the Botnet and Spam Game
    October 9, 2007
    By Pedro Hernandez

    There is no escaping the suspicion that spammers have been charting a cagier course in recent months. Electronic messaging managed service provider MessageLabs has noticed too.

    Previously pristine inboxes are finding that image files and PDFs containing pump-and-dump stock pitches and advertisements increasingly slip through. Excel and Rich Text Format (RTF) spam have also been detected in the wild.

    The cause can be summed up by one word: botnets.

    Although spam has decreased from its peak in July 2004 when it accounted for a staggering 94.5 percent of the email monitored by MessageLabs -- it now hovers around 71 percent -- the monetary spoils have prompted spammers to pursue more exotic methods of keeping those coffers full.

    Responsible for spewing spam and dropping the DDoS hammer on Web sites, botnets can hardly be considered an up-and-coming threat. However, a relatively new breed of botnet, spawned by the Storm worm, is proving to be tenacious adversary.

    The malware has been contributing to a slight uptick in spam lately, according to MessageLabs' Chief Anti-Spam Technologist, Matt Sergeant.

    "We're currently seeing a slight rise. Nothing anywhere near as huge a rise as we saw last year. But it's early days yet," he states.

    Purportedly under the control of the notorious Russian spammer Zliden, the Storm-based botnet is a very different beast. First, its sheer size is immense. According to MessageLabs, Storm is believed to have infected 50 million machines, though only 10 - 20 percent of its capacity is being used.


    My concern here isn't spam its a massive dos attack on net nodes, stopping all Intennet traffic.

    MY take on this threat, Wnat it will look like to you.

    How it could be used in counter terror op.

    Obelisk II

    The al qaeda Internet network is known to U.S. intelligence as Obelisk. It "serves not only as the distribution system for the videos produced by Al Qaeda's production company, As-Sahab, but also as the equivalent of a corporate intranet, dealing with such mundane matters as expense reporting and clerical memos to mid- and lower-level Qaeda operatives throughout the world," the Sun reported. source:

    The Web sites are scattered all over the Internet and some have fake names. Many are being hosted unwittingly by proprietors because al Qaeda operatives have hacked into their hosting systems.

    "We saw the whole thing shut down because of this leak," one intelligence official, who spoke on anonymity, told the Sun. "We lost an important keyhole into the enemy."

    U.S. intelligence officials actually saw the order from al Qaeda's technical team to operatives in Malaysia to shut down the network. Now, intel officials believe, the network has been moved to secret new locations scattered on the Internet.


    Who's fault? Who leaked? We don't know.

    The fact remains al qaeda will try and set up a new system.
    Problem remains how do they vet members?
    They have to send out the new URLs to members.
    And the are recruiting.

    If you have ever tried to vet someone via the Internet it is near impossible.
    Problem comes when you try to confirm the Internet person is the same person you communicate with. The real person ID = this internet virtual person.

    For now al Qaeda is safe.
    But everyone s working on penetrating Obelisk II.

    By AMIR TAHERI October 8, 2007 -- UNKNOWN gunmen murdered Muhammad Gul Aghasi - one of the key "theologians" of al Qaeda - at a mosque in northern Syria last month. Candidates for the fiery preacher's killing include rivals within his own radical group, agents of the Americans - and his Syrian hosts. Whatever the truth, this is bad news for the already ailing al Qaeda....

    Wearing Afghan-style clothes and the mandatory flowing beard, Aghasi was especially proud of the role his jihadists had played in fighting the Americans in Fallujah for more than a year. He claimed that his bulletproof, German-made limousine had been a gift from an Arab businessman for his role in the Fallujah battle. He had created an outfit called Office of Services for the Mujahedin in Iraq, handling millions of dollars collected from unknown benefactors....

    Members of Aghasi's family claim that he had all along worked alongside the "legitimate authorities of the country" to further the interests of "Syria and Islam."

    The Syrian authorities claim he was killed by two former jihadists from Iraq who had defected to the U.S. forces there. But it is rumored in pro-jihadist circles that Aghasi had worked for both the Syrians and the Americans. In this theory, the self-styled Sword of the Faith had started working for Syrian intelligence before getting a better offer from the Americans; when he switched sides, the Syrians decided to put him on the fast track to martyrdom.

    Some experts have long maintained that al Qaeda no longer exists as a single organization and should be seen as a system of franchise used by a variety of groups, including many copycat outfits, across the Muslim world and beyond. Aghasi's story suggests an even more complex picture, since it shows that any individual or group could take the name of al Qaeda without referring to any central authority that issues the franchise. Al Qaeda's original leaders, including Osama bin Laden, assuming he is still alive, are only too happy to let others fight their fight while they huddle in their hideouts....

    Two of Bin Laden's sons, Saad and Seif al-Adl, have been in Iran since 2002, along with at least six other al Qaeda leaders. The Iranians say all are under arrest and will be tried on unspecified charges. Aghasi's story, meanwhile, shows that al Qaeda couldn't have maintained its presence in Iraq without the tacit consent of the Syrian intelligence - a consent that may be withdrawn at any time when and if Damascus decides to repair its ties with Baghdad and Washington.

    Al Qaeda had hoped that the U.S. Congress would hand it a victory in Iraq by forcing the Bush administration to withdraw American forces before the Iraqis were ready to defend themselves. But that hope vanished last month when it became clear that the United States will retain its military presence in Iraq for at least another year.

    Al Qaeda took another hit last week when Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia's grand mufti and the most prestigious cleric in the kingdom, issued a fatwa against "traveling abroad for the purpose of jihad." Hours after the fatwa was issued, Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki hailed it as a "major step toward defeating al Qaeda in Iraq.".....

    Inside Iraq itself, a new force of more than 30,000 volunteers is getting ready to battle al Qaeda in the two predominantly Arab Sunni provinces of Anbar and Ninveh. Many of the volunteers are young men who had previously fought for Al Qaeda in Iraq. They decided to switch sides when Arab Sunni religious and tribal leaders realized that al Qaeda was merely using Iraq as a battlefield in its own war against the United States.

    Even before Aghasi was gunned down, the flow of jihadists going to Iraq via Syria had slowed down. According to Iraqi official estimates, the number of foreign jihadists entering between January and July was down by almost 50 percent compared to the same period in 2006. This is, perhaps, one reason why the al Qaeda cyberspace is now full of desperate calls for more jihadists for Iraq. Despite the setbacks it has suffered, al Qaeda still sees Iraq as a make-or-break moment for its dream of world conquest.

    The way out.

    The President of Patki wouldn't attack the Taliban or al Qaeda in his country.
    He has lived with them his entire life.
    Killing 'THEM' is viewed as killing an Pakistani.
    And he feels he doesn't have kill "them".

    He needs to convert them.
    Bring them in.

    There is currently a classified USA ops going on in Afghan now.
    ( Its ok , nobody reads me. )
    And they have been mopping up Taliban daily.
    USA even called in the reserves, the 82nd.

    The troop decline this has caused is significant.
    And this maybe the reason for the "classified" reason/label.
    And not provoke a public re-reaction.

    Taliban can experience their losses in private.
    There is a culture of not offending the enemy 'tribe' while killing them,
    politically its good policy. And oddly enough helps point the way out: as part of
    "al qaeda's Psyops for Patki"

    USA cannot win the war against al qaeda, every cell cannot be hunted down.
    USA can keep enough pressure on AQ to keep them small and inefficient.

    Only Islam can convert AQ and the Taliban.
    and that will go farther than bombing.

    The President of Pakistan maybe on to something.

    60 TALIBAN KILLED along Pakistan border

    From Syed Mohsin Naqvi

    LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) -- Two days of heavy fighting between Pakistani troops and Taliban and al Qaeda militants near the rugged border with Afghanistan has left dozens dead on both sides, an army spokesman said Monday.


    Children receive treatment on Monday at a hospital in Bannu following fighting between soldiers and militants.

    Pakistani soldiers backed by helicopter gunships launched a massive operation Sunday in North Waziristan, part of the country's largely lawless tribal areas.

    Heavy fighting continued into Monday, with 60 militants reported dead, Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said.

    More than 50 Pakistani troops have died since the operation began, Arshad said. The bodies of 30 of those troops have been recovered, he said. ( MISSING MAY HAVE DESERTED OR DEFECTED )

    The new push follows recent attacks on Pakistani security forces and the breakdown over the summer of a cease-fire between the Islamabad government and tribal leaders.

    U.S. intelligence officials say the cease-fire gave al Qaeda a new safe haven in the tribal region.



    Caps above mine.
    Patki news services tend to down play number of Taliban or al Qaeda killed and over state the number of Patki troops dead. Often they will state total number deaths, with no break down between insurgent and government troops. And the tend to use the word "dead " rather than "killed". As one denotes facts, dead, while the other denotes actions, killed.

    Patki news semantics are very exacting and aim for neutrality as they consider all killed on both sides as Pakistanis first and government or insurgents second.

    There is a taste of killing your enemy without offending them culture.

    How does all this tie into "al qaeda's Psyops for Patki"



    Toll nears 200 in third day of fighting between Pakistan and rebels.

    Part of an American classified op.
