The CIA Likes To Watch
U.S. intelligence operatives covertly sabotaged a prominent al-Qaeda online magazine last month in an apparent attempt to sow confusion among the group’s followers, according to officials.Its a bit early to be spiking the football on this methinks. Cause I dare say in its history Jawa Report has disrupted more terrorist propaganda than the entire federal government ever has, and that's taking into account that since Obama took office taking out online terrorist websites and videos with terms of service complaints has become much more difficult. Way more difficult than under the Bush administration.
... “It’s obvious if people are calling for crazies to murder a U.S. citizen, why wouldn’t you stop it?” said one former official, recalling the debate in which National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith B. Alexander argued on behalf of disruption.
In that case, the administration decided against action, in part because the CIA preferred to use the site to gather intelligence. In subsequent debates, the danger of an imminent threat “really made the difference” in terms of whether to disrupt issues of the magazine, according to a former administration official.
Its almost as if someone is protecting terrorist websites and propaganda afraid that they'll miss something? But as we've seen allowing unlimited, unmolested terrorist propaganda to spread creates more terrorists than you can watch.
Its time the word was put out that if you host the propaganda of or advocate for a specially designated terrorist entity that you WILL BE TARGETED, DISRUPTED and prosecuted. Its also time to let providers who knowingly provide services to specially designated terrorist groups that the cost will be far more than what they earn by providing these services.
Of course there are certain high level forums where the intelligence value may outweigh the cost of a takedown. But for the vast majority of terrorist propaganda this is simply not true. In such cases what intelligence can be gathered should be done quickly, followed by offensive countermeasures to remove, disable, disrupt and humiliate the lower level terror propaganda.
The benefits, less terrorists being radicalized online, the rest of the cats herded so to speak. The downside, breeding resistant pests. Serious players will harden their sites and redouble their efforts, which yields a list of serious players.
See how this works?
Yes we can limit and thwart the propaganda of al-Qaeda. The problem is, for the most part we don't.

Pakistan's Terror Group (LeT) Upper Income Recruits
From the "let's pump more money into Pakistan to help the poor little ole impoverished from joining Lashkar-e-Tayyiba" files:
[MoneyJihad]Far from being impoverished orphans, the young men recruited by Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) tend to be among “the best and brightest” of Pakistani society, according to a study released last month by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point based on biographies of 917 LeT members.h/t meankitteh1
The findings severely undercut British Prime Minister David Cameroon’s position that Western development aid to Pakistan improves education and reduces poverty which in turn prevents extremism.
The foreign aid is not preventing terrorist recruitment, some of the aid is stolen by Pakistani elites, and some of the aid is given to terrorist groups through Pakistan’s ISI spy service. There is no longer any justifiable reason to continue transferring taxpayer money from the West to Pakistan.
Sandcrawler PSA: Today is Natty F8ckemupFriday

San Antonio, TX: Accused Alleged Hezbollah Member Referred To As God Of Death...
Update on my previous post regarding a lying sack of alleged 'ex' Hezbollah shite who tried to get a sensitive DoD position.
This is disturbing, is so many ways: [Prosecutor]Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”"
In the defense's version, Wissam Allouche was a former linguist for the U.S. Army who ran a gas station in Northeast San Antonio as he became an American citizen.Allouche was a Israeli POW:
But to counterterrorism officials, Allouche, 44, belonged to Hezbollah, falsely claimed to be a U.S. special forces officer during visits to Fort Sam Houston, and even tried to hook up with women at the post, possibly to gain access to sensitive information.[...]
For more than three years, the task force has been investigating Allouche, and even used an undercover person to record conversations with him, authorities said.
The FBI raided his then-home in Universal City in 2011, and found documents which they claim he fabricated to falsely show he had security clearances, membership in U.S. special forces and Defense Department intelligence units.
“He admitted on tape that he was a member of Amal and that he was a commander of Hezbollah,” prosecutor Mark Roomberg told the judge, who agreed to keep Allouche behind bars pending trial.
Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”[...]
Army Criminal Investigations agent Jeff Cram, a member of the task force, testified that an investigation revealed Allouche's ties. And, Cram said, Allouche was seen by at least two people at Fort Sam dressed in U.S. military uniform displaying insignias from special forces.Continued below:
See another profile of the allahdouche here
He also boasted to women on base of being in the special forces, Cram testified.Wow, just wow.
While Orr argued that it could have simply been flirtation, Roomberg and Cram alleged a “honey pot” or a “honey trap” situation — recruiting someone into espionage through a romantic relationship.
“So being flirtatious would give him access” to sensitive information? Roomberg asked.
“Yes, sir,” Cram responded.
Cram also testified the task force received eight photos from a source showing Allouche during his days with Amal and Hezbollah. In them, he's holding assault rifles or rocket propelled grenades, Cram said.
“He was given at least three aliases,” Cram testified.
One meant “god of death,” Cram said, adding that Allouche was also known for “acting crazy or acting dangerously.”
If convicted of lying in his naturalization forms, Allouche faces up to 10 years in prison, and his citizenship would be revoked. He faces up to five years for the charge of lying on security-clearance forms.

US Treasury Targets Iran’s Nuclear and Missile Proliferation Activities
You can read it all at Internet Haganah
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury is taking action today against 20 individuals and entities for their involvement in Iran’s nuclear and missile proliferation networks and Iran’s continued attempts to circumvent sanctions. These networks are responsible for moving supplies and providing essential services to Iran’s clandestine nuclear and weapons programs. These actions are designed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime by tightening sanctions against Iran’s energy sector and exposing key proliferation related networks that span the globe from Europe to Asia.Meanwhile, missiles stand ready in Israel with the the mad mullah's names on them.
“As long as Iran continues to pursue a nuclear and ballistic missile program in defiance of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, the U.S. will target and disrupt those involved in Iran’s illicit activities,” said Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen. “We will continue to work with our international partners to intensify this pressure and tighten sanctions on Iran’s energy sector as it provides much needed financial support for the Iranian regime’s proliferation activity.”
Fourteen of the entities and individuals being designated today are part of Iran’s international procurement and proliferation operations. These designations are being made pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13382, which targets weapons of mass destruction proliferators and their supporters. The designations focus on entities and individuals supporting previously designated entities within Iran’s proliferation network as well as Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Naftiran Intertrade Company (NICO), and Iran’s Ministry of Defense for Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL). These organizations are at the center of Iran’s continued proliferation activities. Today’s designations include companies supporting IRGC attempts to clandestinely ship illicit cargo around the world, including to Syria. They also target the Deputy Defense Minister and Dean of Malek Ashtar University, who is responsible for significant contributions to Iran’s missile program, as well as companies and individuals supporting Iran’s nuclear program.
France: Police Arrest A Recent Convert To Islam In Attack On Pvt. Cédric Cordiez
Via Le Figaro[googlish]
The profile of the alleged perpetrator Cedric Cordiez[soldier..ed], this military stabbed Saturday cutter on the forecourt of Defense, is gradually emerging. Arrested Wednesday morning in the Yvelines, Alexander, 22 years is now heard by investigators, to whom he confessed. According to information issued by the Paris prosecutor, a young homeless man, is in favor of a "traditionalist Islam, even radical, for three or four years." He converted "to the end of the majority." Few minutes before tackling Cedric Cordiez, Alexander has performed "a Muslim prayer." The young man was probably "in the name of his religious ideology," said the prosecutor, who said the terrorist qualification is accepted for the attack.NY Times: notes:
French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said in a statement that the suspect was arrested Wednesday morning in the Yvelines region just west of Paris, following the stabbing of Pvt. Cédric Cordiez in the neck from behind with a short-bladed knife. The attack took place in the shopping mall and underground transportation hub of La Défense, west of Paris.Motivation, really Mr. Valls?
Officials said at the time that the attack seemed an echo of the killing and stabbing to death of a British soldier on a London street last week.
The French suspect was known to investigators, Mr. Valls said, but he urged caution and said: “I cannot talk about radical Islam.” He said investigators wanted to know more about the suspect’s “motivation, background and family environment.”
The police said he was identified thanks to video footage from the crime and traces of his DNA found on items left at the scene in a plastic bag, including a knife and a bottle[...]
Private Cordiez, 23, was released from a military hospital on Monday and rejoined his unit.

U.K. Police Arrest 3 More Men In Connection With Savage Murder Of Drummer Rigby
Most likely more of al-Qaeda loving Anjem Choudary and Omar (the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed followers like the above
LONDON (AP) — British police on Saturday arrested three more suspects in connection with the savage killing of an off-duty soldier that has raised fresh concerns about terrorism.
Scotland Yard said counterterrorism officers arrested two men, ages 24 and 28, at a residential address in southeast London. A third man, 21, was arrested separately on a London street at the same time.
Police said they used a stun gun on two of the suspects. All three were detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Wissam Allouche, 44, appeared for an initial hearing Friday afternoon, and shook his head when U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad read the charges leveled in a federal indictment. The judge ordered him held pending a bail hearing and his arraignment Tuesday.
“He allegedly tried to cover up his affiliation with Hezbollah,” said special agent Erik Vasys, spokesman for the FBI in San Antonio. “It is believed he was looking to secure a sensitive position with the U.S. government at some point.”[More...]

Al Qaeda Lover Anjem Chourdary Mentored Woolwich Terrorist Michael AdebolajoBlames British In Afghanistan For Attack (bumped)Omar Bakri Mohammed: I Mentored Him Too!!!
Anjem (al muhaijroun,revolution muslim,Islam policy,shariah4UK,shariah4Islam,sharia4world, muslimsagainstcrusades.etc) knew and knows 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo (aka Mujahid) when the bitch converted to Islam in 2003. When the media asks Anjem about this, he uses the old: "I knew him and haven't seen him for two years" bs.
One of the two men involved in the Woolwich terror attack was known to a banned Islamist organisation and went by the name of Mujahid, The Independent in London has reported.Sure he doesn't preach attacks on Brit troops or anything (out in the open for all to see, well sometimes... see here), he just tweets something like this:
Anjem Choudary, the former leader of the [banned..ed] group, Al Muhajiroun, confirmed that he had known the man who was seen on video in the immediate aftermath of yesterday's horrific killing waving a cleaver with bloodied hands and making political statements.
Mr Choudary said Mujahid, who he said had converted to Islam in 2003 and was a British-born Nigerian, had stopped attending meetings of Al Muhajiroun and its successor organisations two years ago. The former solicitor said he had also known "Mujahid" as Michael[...]
Sources today named one of the suspects as 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo.
Mr Choudary told The Independent: “I knew him as Mujahid. He attended our meetings and my lectures. I wouldn’t describe him as a member [of Al Muhajiroun]. There were lots of people who came to our activities who weren’t necessarily members.
“He was a pleasant, quiet guy. He reverted to Islam in about 2003. He was just a completely normal guy. He was interested in Islam, in memorising the Koran. He disappeared about two years ago. I don’t know what influences he has been under since then.”
Founded in 1983 by Islamist Omar Bakri Muhammad[ Omar the goat humping bakri muhammed...ed], Al Muhajiroun became notorious for attempting to justify the 9/11 attacks and fomenting Islamist rhetoric in Britain.
Mr Choudary, who has long been a controversial figures in Britain’s Islamist circles, has been an outspoken critic of British military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
But he insisted that he had never preached that attacks on British troops or security personnel in Britain were justified.
He was influenced by Anjem's radical preaching as many before him have. Most are in pound-in-ass prison now. For a recent example of such, Americans Zach Chesser and Jesse Norton of Revolution Muslim's South Park fame.
The Jawa Report has OWND his websites numerous times and I noticed today he has another up and running: http://anjem-choudary.com/ The site is registered at Dynadot, a US company. They don't appear to have a problem with it as they have previously refused to remove known terror groups websites. when we have contacted them.
So what is one to do?
Oh hey, lookie here: anjem-choudary.com Tango Down
That's what I call a natty PWN
Update: Not to be outdone by Anjem, Omar the goat humping Bakri Mohammed wanted his mug in the news too. Radical preacher challenge!
Part of that radicalisation can be tracked to extremist groups such as the now-banned al-Muhijaroun. Its former UK head, Omar Bakri Mohammad told the Guardian that he had known Michael Olumide Adebolajo, who had attended many meetings. These included al-Muhijaroun events at community centres and a mosque in the Woolwich area.Anjem's website Tango Down also affects the ole goat humper.
Adebolajo attended the meetings from 2004 to around 2011 and, according to Bakri Mohammad, chose his own Muslim name after converting from his Christian upbringing. The name he chose, Mujaahid, means one engaged in jihad.
No, I don't condone hacking but I'll leave it at that.

Woolwich Terrorists Had Been Watched
The good old lets just watch and then watch some more lest we be labeled Islamophobes policy.
It turns out that the terrorists are British subjects of Nigerian descent and had been under investigation by the security serviices for ties to terrorism.I don't... I don't believe they are planning an attack.Sources said reports the men had featured in "several investigations" in recent years - but were not deemed to be planning an attack - "were not inaccurate".
They confirmed one of the suspects was intercepted by police last year while leaving the country.
That is why you fail.

PC Kills: Jihad Experts Decry White House Terror Training Guidelines
Experts on Islam and terrorism are decrying the Department of Homeland Security’s recently revealed anti-terrorism training guidelines, which pressure cops to ignore Islamic beliefs when investigating terror crimes.Of course this is happening and has been for a long time. Think 'work place violence' instead of domestic terrorism at Ft Hood and Bronco's declaration of dhimmitude at the UN in regards to the Benghazi terror attack:
The Boston bombings demonstrated the impact of such training, Andrew McCarthy, a former New York prosecutor, told The Daily Caller.
“The Boston Marathon was bombed by a jihadist who had been investigated by the FBI … [and was confirmed in 2011 to be] an Islamist, which would have been hard not to do since he does not appear to have made any secret of it,” said McCarthy, who persuaded a New York jury in 1995 to convict “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman for his use of Islamic teaching to spur jihad attacks, including the 1993 attack against the Twin Towers

Those dang T.E.A. party, Cross worshiping (aka 'shadowy groups') terrorists prolly upset they were targeted by the likes of, and not limited to, the IRS, FBI, DHS, MFM, the Democrats and Bronco Bama!
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Federal authorities in Idaho said Thursday they have arrested an Uzbekistan national accused of conspiring with a designated terrorist organization in his home country and helping scheme to use a weapon of mass destruction.Full FBI press release and links to indictments are below the fold. I haven't read it all yet.
The U.S. attorney's office said Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, was arrested at an apartment complex in south Boise on Thursday morning after a grand jury issued a three-count indictment as part of an investigation into his activities in Idaho and Utah.
The Idaho grand jury's indictment charges Kurbanov with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. The indictment also alleges he possessed an unregistered explosive device.
A separate federal grand jury in Utah also returned an indictment charging Kurbanov with distributing information about explosives, bombs and weapons of mass destruction.[More..]
h/t MountainPatriot for alerting us to this.
Update: Howie notes the perp has a JihadTube channel. Why, there is no online terrorism to see on this here channel people or anywhere online! Four days ago he added 27 channels to his 'favorites'. I add his channel to my favorite LULZ.
Update II: The blog Different Stans noted The perp thinks the Taliban's "Voice of Jihad" aka "http://alemarah-iea.com/eng is real news about Afghanistan".
They have done excellent 'ground work' on this perp. He hates "Russians, Americans, loves Jihad, explosives and Power Rangers".
Also, from the above blog, the perps feelings in regards to the murder of Fr. Daniel Sysoev, who was short dead in his church in Moscow on November 19th, 2009.
As for a video about the murder of Daniel Sysoev, well, that was alright in Fazliddin's book:Update III: Screencap from Howie shows the perps true feelings about the 9/11 terror attack. He commented the below on this video titled 9/11/01:vapervih etot chelavek ne svetoe a kazol potomushto oh sam nachel oskarblat musulman tak vam enado chumoshniki i vapsheto russkie narod kak vi sami govarili sozdani iz obezani obezyanii garilla martishka aran gunani ponemaete kto vi
First, this person is not sacred but a goat because he himself began to offend Muslims, you deserve it you chumoshniki and in general the Russian people like you yourself are created from monkeys, you're monkeys, gorillas, chimps, understand who you are
Who's the loser bitch? You are, and I'm laughing my arse off at you.
Update IV: JihadTuber, He/she/it states country as Azerbaijan, ansarsharia1 appears to have hearted this perp and left a comment on perps channel. No telling if ansarsharia1 aided in radicalizing this assmaggot. .
The above blog, Different Stans, noted how he changed in a matter of a months
Watch as he lurches from hating Russians and loving Idaho to hating American soldiers and then studying how to make bombs...Again, FBI press release and links to indictments against him is below:
Boise Man Arrested; Terrorism Charges Filed in Idaho and Utah
Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, was arrested Thursday morning in Boise, Idaho, as part of a federal terrorism investigation. Federal terrorism charges were filed Thursday afternoon in Boise and Salt Lake City, Utah. Kurbanov, an Uzbekistan national, legally present in the United States, was living in Boise at the time of his arrest.
A federal grand jury in Boise returned a three-count indictment charging Kurbanov with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device.
A federal grand jury in Salt Lake City returned an indictment charging Kurbanov with one count of distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction.
The charges were announced by David B. Barlow, U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah; Wendy J. Olson, U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho; John Carlin, Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the U.S. Department of Justice; and Mary Rook, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Salt Lake City Division.
The arrest was the culmination of an investigation by the FBI’s Salt Lake City Division, which covers Idaho and Utah; and Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) in Idaho and Utah, which include a number of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
Kurbanov’s activities were closely monitored by federal agents during the investigation and any potential threat posed by Kurbanov has been contained. Kurbanov is scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court in Boise tomorrow. He will be transferred to Utah at the conclusion of the prosecution in Idaho.
“Today’s arrest and these indictments underscore our commitment to aggressively and thoroughly investigate those who conspire to engage in unlawful terrorist activities,” said U.S. Attorney Olson. “The thorough and exhaustive work of our JTTF, in partnership with our investigating and prosecuting partners in Utah, Colorado and at the National Security Division, put a stop to this criminal activity and ensured the public’s safety. I commend the men and women at every level of law enforcement, including the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations, Ada County and Canyon County Sheriff’s Offices and the Boise City Police Department, who assisted in this effort.”
“One of our highest priorities is disrupting potential acts of terrorism. The coordinated investigation, arrest, and indictments in this case demonstrate the commitment of all involved to do just that. The tireless work of agents, analysts and law enforcement officers to detect and guard against acts of terrorism has helped ensure the safety of the communities they serve,” U.S. Attorney Barlow said today. “The judicial part of the process will now begin in Idaho and Utah.”
“Today’s arrest underscores the need for continued vigilance against terrorist threats both at home and abroad. I thank the many agents, analysts and prosecutors responsible for this important investigation,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Carlin.
“As always, the FBI’s top priority is the safety and security of our nation and its citizens. The indictments and arrest are the result of months of exhaustive investigation on the part of agents, analysts, and officers who worked indefatigably to achieve that end,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Rook.
The Idaho indictment alleges in count one that between August 2012 and May 2013, Kurbanov knowingly conspired with unnamed co-conspirators to provide material support and resources to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a designated foreign terrorist organization. The indictment alleges that the material support and resources included himself, computer software and money.
In count two, the indictment further alleges that the defendant conspired to provide material support and resources, including himself, to terrorists knowing that the material support was to be used in preparation for and in carrying out an offense involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction.
The indictment also alleges in count three that on or about Nov.15, 2012, Kurbanov possessed a destructive device consisting of a combination of parts intended for use in converting any device into a destructive device and from which a destructive device could be readily assembled. According to the indictment, the parts were a hollow hand grenade, hobby fuse, aluminum powder, potassium nitrate and sulfur.
If convicted on the Idaho charges, Kurbanov faces a maximum of 15 years in prison on each of the conspiracy counts and 10 years in prison on the possession of an unregistered destructive device count. The Idaho charges are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Aaron Lucoff and Heather Patricco and National Security Division Trial Attorney Larry Schneider.
The one-count indictment filed in Utah alleges that from about Jan. 14, 2013, continuing through Jan. 24, 2013, Kurbanov taught and demonstrated how to make explosive devices and distributed information relating to the manufacture and use of an explosive or weapon of mass destruction with the intent that the teaching, demonstration and information be used for, and in furtherance of, an activity that would constitute a federal crime of violence.
The indictment alleges the defendant showed internet videos, conducted instructional shopping trips, provided written recipes and gave verbal instructions on where to obtain the necessary components to construct and use improvised explosive devices. The indictment also alleges that Kurbanov intended that the videos, written recipes, verbal instructions and shopping trips be used for training in the construction and use of explosive devices to commit a crime of violence, such as the use of weapons of mass destruction; bombings of a place of public use, a public transportation system or infrastructure facility; or destroying a building in interstate commerce.
If convicted on the Utah charge, Kurbanov faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
The Utah charges are being prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Barlow, Assistant U.S. Attorney John W. Huber and National Security Division Trial Attorney Larry Schneider.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt and is not evidence. Individuals charged in an indictment are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Looks like the hubby may not have been the only Tsarnaev interested in radical Islamist reading material after all. A search of Katherine Russell Tsarnaev’s computer turned up data from Inspire, the recruitment magazine published by al-Qaeda online, as well as other material that makes her more interesting than an average witness:Well, she probably didn't know terrorist stuff was on her computer, right? Nor did she know hubby and brother-in-law were making bombs using the kitchen sink and bathtub!
A bathtub and kitchen sink in the Cambridge apartment of deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev tested positive for residue from explosives, corroborating his surviving brother Dzhokhar’s claims that the duo built bombs at the home, a federal law enforcement source said Friday.I hear nothing, I see nothing, I shut up now now~ Katherine Russell

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's alleged associates are natives of Khazakstahn and have already been detained by U.S. immigration officials for alleged immigration violations.
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev were in federal immigration court earlier Wednesday morning on those matters, a government source said; however, the court hearing was delayed.
Authorities were not immediately saying who the three detained were or if Tsarnaev's two classmates were part of the new group of suspects.
An attorney for Kadyrbayev has told media outlets that the two young men have been interviewed by FBI agents and that they were cooperating.
The Boston Police Dept. broke the news in a tweet, writing, "Three additional suspects taken into custody in Marathon bombing case. Details to follow."[More...]
Update III by Howie: Two of the suspects were already in custody on emigration issues.
They are identified as Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev:
The third person is a US citizen. I'm speculating its the wife of Tamarlan, because its said that she warned the bombers they were wanted. But that's pure speculation on my part. We'll update when their identity is confirmed.
Hat Tip: Laura.
Update IV by SH: Gov Deval Patrick was briefed and said the suspects helped after the fact and it was his belief that they had nothing to do with the bombing. I am also hearing the 3rd suspect is a male?
Update V by SH: U.S. Attorney's Office - District of MA:
Three men[Note 3rd is male..ed] arrested in connection with Boston Marathon bombing. Conspiring to obstruct justice and false statements charges.Update VI by SH: Third suspect named as Robel Phillipos
Three men arrested in connection with Boston Marathon will appear in federal court at 3:30 in Courtroom 19. Overflow in #20.
Two men from Kazakhstan and a man from Cambridge were arrested and charged today in the Boston Marathon bombings investigation, federal prosecutors said.Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev owned/leased/whatever a Bemmer and had their very own 'specialty' plate as a joke or whatever. We were aware of the license plate and that Jahar had previously tweeted images of it:
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both 19 and of New Bedford, were charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice by plotting to dispose of a laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks belonging to bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the US attorney’s office said in a statement.
Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge was charged with making false statements to law enforcement officials in a terorism investigation, prosecutors said.
Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev face maximum sentences of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Phillipos faces a maximum sentence of eight years and a $250,000 fine, prosecutors said.[More...]
Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev knew Jahar was bomber and yet they tried to dispose of evidence aka aiding and abetting a f**king terrorist.
Update VII by SH: Criminal Complaint against Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev [Phillipos included in complaint] here. I just started reading it.
Update VIII by SH: Criminal Complaint against Phillipos here. His full name is Robel Kidan Phillipos
As what was noted by FNC's Greta:
At this point in the criminal process, the prosecutor just charges with a couple counts to hold the suspects. When it goes to the grand jury, they are going to see a giant indictment!

Report: Boston Has Proven Attractive To al-Qaeda Linked Jihadist
Muslim extremists with ties to al Qaeda have been using Massachusetts and the city of Boston as a jihadi headquarters since at least 1993, according to a recent report by a top terrorism analyst.Color me not surprised.
At least 26 residents were found to have ties to al Qaeda, according to the report by the Henry Jackson Society. The activity dates from before the Tsarnaev brothers, radical Muslim immigrants to the United States, were identified as the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Jihadist activity has taken place in Massachusetts since at least 1993 and includes in-state fundraising for terrorism, “those convicted of planning jihad, and even those who have been killed while fighting abroad,” according to the report by terrorism analyst Robin Simcox.
The city [of Boston] and state of Massachusetts has a long history of ties to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired militancy,” the report states.
“Even prior to last week’s Boston bombing, there had been twenty six individuals with links to Massachusetts connected to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired terrorism,” the report states. “Fifteen had lived in Massachusetts, with eleven 9/11 hijackers using the Boston area as a temporary base from which to launch their attacks.”
The report provides a window into Massachusetts’ struggles with terrorists as the city of Boston grapples with the Tsarvaev brothers’ deadly acts.
Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal Eliminated: IDF Splodes Senior MSC Member
[A]n IAF aircraft on Gaza Tuesday morning assassinated a senior Salafist terror activist who was reportedly behind an April 17 rocket attack on Eilat from the Sinai.David Barnett of the Long War Journal has more:
The IDF and Shin Bet security service confirmed that they had targeted Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal, 24, from the Shati refugee camp.
The attack marked the first “targeted strike” on a Gaza terror figure by Israel since November’s Operation Pillar of Defense, and came amid a renewal of sporadic rocket fire into Israel that seemed to show the deterrent effect of November’s operation was eroding.
According to the IDF, Masshal, who "manufactured, improved and traded different types of ammunition," was involved in the April 17 rocket attack on Eilat from the Sinai, for which the Mujahideen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC) had taken responsibility[...]MSC's Facebook page here and their twitter account here
Following the Eilat attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned that Israel would "exact a price for this [the attack]; this has been our consistent policy for the past four years and it will serve us here as well." Egypt was reportedly briefed ahead of today's strike.
This afternoon, the MSC released a statement through the Ibn Taymiyyah Media Center confirming that Masshal was a member of their organization. During the funeral, Masshal was wrapped in al Qaeda's black flag, which was first used by al Qaeda in Iraq but has been adopted by other al Qaeda affiliates.

Fatwa Published 4/21/2013: Sure Akhi, It's OK To Distribute Bomb Making Instructions Via Jihadi ForumsWebsite Hosted By NJ Company
I guess Samir Khan's "How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" isn't reaching enough jihadis?
On April 21, 2013, the Salafi-jihadi website Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad (MTJ) posted a fatwa encouraging the dissemination on jihadi forums of content relating to the manufacture of explosives.Six days after the Boston Marathon Bombing and this is published on a website hosted by a US company.
The fatwa, by Sheikh Abu Mundhir Al-Shinqiti, was issued in response to a query by reader "'Omar Al-Dalimi" about the home manufacture of explosives. Claiming to be a member of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), Al-Dalimi asked if he was permitted to publish via "the brothers' forums," that is, jihadi forums, some exclusive content in his possession pertaining to the manufacture of explosives.
Al-Dalimi said that his content was sought after by other forum members for the purpose of jihad, but that he was concerned that if such content was posted openly on jihadi forums, other undesirable members, who he says are Shi'ites, could also access it and benefit from it. Al-Shinqiti responded by encouraging Al-Dalimi to disseminate his content freely over jihadi forums so that the "mujahideen and their supporters everywhere can benefit from it."
It is noteworthy that the MTJ is hosted by Interserver.net, which according to its website is a New Jersey company located at 110 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite 100, Secaucus, NJ 07094. The toll-free office number is 1-877-566-8398, and regular office number 1-201-605-1440.
Following is Al-Dalimi's question, followed by Al-Shinqiti's answer:
Surprising? Nope, not at all.

Arab Spring! al-Qaeda Linked Tunisian Hackers Hack US Govt
A group going by the name of the “Tunisian Cyber Army”, claims that they, in coordination with the Al-Qaida Electronic Army (AQEA), have hacked four U.S. government sites within the last few days. The sites allegedly hit included the U.S. State Department, the Army National Guard, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (cbp.gov) and Office of Personnel Management (OPM.gov).Cyber warefare, al-Qaeda is on the offensive, while we are er uh, I'm not sure what to call it, giving safe harbor to terrorist websites for fear of offending someone, or maybe missing a few useless bytes of information?
The hackers says they identified and exploited vulnerabilities on two domains owned by the US Department of State and one for the Army National Guard. The attackers claim to have obtained sensitive information, and the IP addresses of government computers and servers and are holding onto the information to work on hacking more IPs.
The group also says they had the assistance of “Chinese hackers”.
The group claims that this is all in prepation for #OpBlackSummer, an effort to attack US targets between May 31 and September 11.

All Your Drones Are Belongs to Someone Else
First, the FBI is saying that a drone spotted over JFK yesterday wasn't one of ours:
On Monday, March, 4, 2013, at approximately 1:15 p.m., the pilot of Alitalia Flight #608 spotted a small, unmanned aircraft while on approach to John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Alitalia flight was roughly three miles from runway 31R when the incident occurred at an altitude of approximately 1,750 feet. The unmanned aircraft came within 200 feet of the Alitalia plane.I dunno, sounds more like a big model plane to me than a "drone". But, what is a drone if not just a big model plane?
The FBI is investigating the incident and looking to identify and locate the aircraft and its operator. The unnamed aircraft was described as black in color and no more than three feet wide with four propellers.
“The FBI is asking anyone with information about the unmanned aircraft or the operator to contact us,” said Special Agent in Charge John Giacalone. “Our paramount concern is the safety of aircraft passengers and crew.”
It serves as a reminder that the technology for building "drones" has been around for a long time. I knew a kid back in grade school who's stepfather had two massive model airplanes. I'm not sure just how big they were since I was a kid and perspective changes as you grow, but I want to say that they had like four foot wingspans. Add a camera to them and call them "drones".
The second batch of "these are not the drones you are looking for" come from Pakistan:
When news of the two latest drone strikes emerged from Pakistan’s tribal belt in early February, it seemed to be business as usual by the C.I.A...As the cost of producing unmanned fixed winged aircraft comes down, we should expect more of them not only over our skies but around the world.
Yet there was one problem, according to three American officials with knowledge of the program: The United States did not carry out those attacks.
“They were not ours,” said one of the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the drone program’s secrecy. “We haven’t had any kinetic activity since January.

Four Somali Immigrants Convicted Of Supporting Al Shabaab
A federal jury in San Diego on Friday convicted four Somali immigrants — including an imam from a local mosque — of conspiring to funnel money to a terrorist group in their native country.Revolution Muslims Jesse Morton and Zach Chesser's hint for these 4:
After a three-week trial and three days of deliberations, the jury convicted the four men of conspiring to raise and send money to Somalia's al-Shabaab. The men coordinated fundraising efforts and sent nearly $9,000 to al-Shabaab between 2007 and 2008, prosecutors said[...]
Those convicted Friday include 40-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud, who prosecutors said used his connections as a popular imam at a mosque in San Diego's City Heights neighborhood to raise money for the group.
The other defendants were two San Diego taxi drivers, 36-year-old Basaaly Saeed Moalin and 56-year-old Issa Doreh, and 37-year-old Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud of Anaheim, whose financial transfer business Shidaal Express was used to route the money, prosecutors said.
Government attorneys played tapes of telephone calls, many of them between Moalin and the late Aden Hashi Ayrow, who was among the top leaders of al-Shabaab until he was killed in missile strike in May 2008.[More...]

Al-Qaeda's 22 Tips For Dodging Drone Attacks
Not on the list and the best tip evah, don't join al-Qaeda
A document containing al-Qaeda's 22 tips for dodging drone attacks has been found in a building abandoned by Islamists in Mali. Here, we list all 22 tips.They left this tip out also: don't hide under a tree.
Read the full document here[PDF-editor]
The list in full (English):
1. It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russianmade “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer know-how.
2. Using devices that broadcast frequencies or pack of frequencies to disconnect the contacts and confuse the frequencies used to control the drone. The Mujahideen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made “Racal.”
3. Spreading the reflective pieces of glass on a car or on the roof of the building

"So Called American Citizen": Is That Another Name For Traitor?
We’re still trying to wrap our heads around Democratic Rep. John Conyers’ suggestion to start calling illegal immigrants “out of status” new Americans, and now Sen. Dianne Feinstein has thrown us another curve. While questioning CIA director nominee John Brennan at his confirmation hearing today, Feinstein referred to [AQAP's..ed]radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a Predator drone strike in 2011, as a “so-called American citizen.”I guess that means the North Carolina Muslim, Samir Khan, was also a "so-called American citizen" too? Sammy went to Yemen, joined AQAP and was proud to 'denounce' his citizenship, as he pointed out in "Inspire":
Therefore, I am proud to be a traitor in America’s eyes just as much as I am proud to be a Muslim; and I take this opportunity to accentuate my oath of allegiance (bai`yah) and the mujahidin of the Arabian Peninsula’s bai`yah to the ferocious lion, the champion of jihad, the humble servant of God, my beloved Shaykh, Usama bin Ladin, may Allah protect him. Verily, he is the man that has shook the thrones of the tyrants of the world. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam. And how reputable, adventurous and pleasurable is such a life compared to those who remain sitting, working from nine to five?He was with Awlaki when he was droned, so what? We killed 2 al-Qaeda bitches, period.
Clint Watts says it best: Americans: If You Don’t Want To Get Killed By A Drone, Avoid These 4 Things!
Don’t join al Qaeda outside the United States[...]Related:
Don’t become a Senior Leader of al Qaeda overseas[...]
Don’t actively plan to kill or actually attempt to kill Americans [..]
Don’t make it difficult to be arrested[...]
Yes, We Should Kill American al Qaeda
Damn Right We Have the Right to Kill Americans ... IN AL QAEDA

#Benghazi: Def Sec Panetta & Gen Dempsey Testify Before The Senate Armed Services Committee
Obama Only Spoke To Panetta & Dempsey ONCE During Night Of Attack
Obama Never Requested A Update
You can listen/watch here
WTF? Panetta wants to talk sequester. Umm, this hearing is about Benghazi, stop changing the subject.
Update: Panetta - "The US military is not, and should not, be a 911 service, capable of arriving on the scene in minutes around the world"
Update: Back to talking about sequester thanks to Sen Manchin (D).
Update: Sen Graham asked: Was any aircraft or any personnel sent to Benghazi during the attack? Any DOD asset sent at all? Gen. Dempsey: No.
Panetta and Dempsey said they spoke to Obama one time the night of Benghazi attack and that Obama never requested an update. Hence, no images of Obama in the 'war room'? Wow.
Via Sen Ayotte. (Who asked some excellent questions): "POTUS never asked what assets we had available to help on night of #Benghazi attack". "Shocking that POTUS never spoke with SECDEF or CJS again after learning our consulate was attacked to ask 'how's it going?'". "POTUS outsourced #Benghazi response". Amen to that, Sen Ayotte.[Uodate: video added of exchange]
The democrats on the committee only want to talk about the budget, sequestration. Pathetic.
Update: Sen Cruz focusing on "window when attack began". "What could have been done, what military options". Panetta: "Tough to respond to a hypothetical" "Can't bomb the hell out of the place without knowing what was going on". Cruz: "What is the absolute fastest for boots on the ground" Dempsey: "13 hours". "No AC-130's in Africa that night". Regarding meeting with Obama, Cruz: "How much of that meeting was about Benghzi" Panetta: 15 to 20 minutes".

Mad Mullahs/Assad: How dare The Juice Interrupt Our Transfer Of WMD To Our Beloved Hezbollah..
[ZIP]In Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday as saying the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.Related: Syria Crosses Israel's WMD Line
[FPM]On Sunday, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom told Army Radio that the country’s top security officials had held a special meeting and warned that the transfer of Syrian chemical weapons to Hezbollah would be crossing a line that would mean action.To.be.continued.
It was not the first time that Israel had warned Assad not to follow in the footsteps of his former ally, Saddam Hussein, but it was the sharpest warning to date. The warning was clearly meant to head off a specific course of action by Syria. But true to form, Bashar Assad did not listen.

Report: Israeli Jets Strike Convoy Along Syrian Border
Syria denies strike on convoy and said IAF struck a "research facility"
(CNN) -- Israeli fighter jets struck overnight a suspected Syrian convoy along the Lebanese-Syrian border believed to be moving weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday.Hezbollah has been wanting to add extra weapons to their arsenal.
Fighter jets struck the vehicles because they were carrying SA-17 missile parts, a Russian-made medium-range delivery system, and equipment that could have been employed in an attack against Israel, another source told CNN.
But Damascus said the strike had instead targeted a research facility near the Syrian capital.
"Israeli warplanes penetrated our airspace at dawn today and directly bombed one of the scientific research centers responsible for raising the level of resistance and self-defense in the area of Jimraya in the Damascus countryside," the military said in a statement aired on state-run television. "This comes after multiple failed attempts over months by terrorist groups to enter and seize the mentioned site."[More...]
As @ChallahHuAkbar notes on "Syrian Research Facilities": "activities focus substantively on the development of biological and chemical weapons". Quoted via treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages
