al-Suri was a close associate of al-Qaeda's Ginger Jihadi Abu Musab al-Suri who's writing established the basic doctrine of al-Qaeda.

Like Buddy Holly & The Big Bopper, Founder of Libyan Islamic Group Meets With "Terrible" Accident

A plane carrying a founder of al-Qeada and the extremist Libyan Islamic Fighting Group is rumored to have been on what's left of this plane.

Founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, Meftah Daouedi member alias Abu Abd El Ghafar died in the plane crash in Libya Grombalia February 21, 2014.

Meftah Daouedi is an official in charge of the martyrs, wounded and missing and Chairman of the Military Council. He was imprisoned in Bouslim after being involved with Al Qaeda responsible for terrorist operations and attacks of groups resulted in deaths.

large_news_CRASH-AVION-LIBYE (1).jpg

Abu Abd El Ghafar is one of the main founders of the fighter group, it was Afghanistan where he founded the Ansar Camp and became emir of the group.

Here is some video from the scene.

The chatter is that a who's who of Ansar al-Sharia leaders were totally lost in the crash.

Apparently the plane was header for Libya but the Libyan ambassador has denied any terrorists were on the plane. Just doctors and some sickly wounded orphans and puppies.

As for the cause of the crash. Freak accident probably, don't you think?

But All the stories on this are in French..... (Le wink wink, Le nod nod)

Last week it was said that an al-Qaeda leader being forced from Iran was headed for Libya. One can only hope he was one of the sickly wounded orphans.

Imperial Good News! Three Arab Terrorists Get Droned in Pakistan

They're dead Jim!

Stripes.com:

A suspected American drone fired two missiles at a home in a northwestern tribal region of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan, killing at least three foreign militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said Thursday.

The U.S. authorities often target Taliban, al-Qaida and their Pakistani supporters in the country's tribal regions.

The latest strike took place just before midnight Wednesday in the village of Qutab Khel in North Waziristan and initial reports gathered from their agents in the field suggested the slain men were Arabs, the two intelligence officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Hakimullah Mehsud DRONED!

GMA:

ISLAMABAD - The Pakistani Taliban confirmed on Friday that their leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, had been killed in a drone strike in the lawless Pakistani region of North Waziristan, senior Taliban and Pakistani intelligence sources told Reuters.

"Hakimullah Mehsud's funeral is scheduled for 3 p.m. (Saturday) in Miranshah," an intelligence source said, referring to the main regional city.

Hakimullah Mehsud has been reported dead several times before. But late on Friday, several intelligence, army and militant sources across the country confirmed he had been killed in the strike in the lawless North Waziristan region.

"We can confirm Hakimullah Mehsud was killed in the drone strike," said one senior security official.

Mehsud's Pakistani Taliban is an umbrella of militant groups separate from but allied to the Afghan Taliban.

Mehsud took over the Pakistani Taliban in August 2009 after a drone strike killed the previous leader, his mentor.

Four security officials confirmed his death to Reuters. His bodyguard and driver were also among the dead, they said.



"Among the dead, who are in large numbers, are Hakimullah's personal bodyguard Tariq Mehsud and his driver Abdullah Mehsud, two of his closest people," said one intelligence source, adding at least 25 people were killed in the strike.
That image above was from a previous false report of Mehsud's death. Proving that good things come to those who wait.

al-Nusra Terrorist Leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani Reported Killed

I'd like to thank Syria for being al-Qaeda's Vietnam.

Reddit:

Jabhat al-Nusra is headed by a man who uses the nom de guerre of Abu Mohammad al-Golani (Golani is a reference to Syria’s Golan Heights, occupied by Israel). The U.S. Treasury Department has also slapped financial sanctions against two men it believes are senior leaders in the militia group: Maysar Ali Musa Abdallah al-Juburi and Anas Hasan Khattab. Recent media reports also mention one Mustafa Abdel-Latif, also known as Abu Anas al-Sahaba, as the new “emir” or leader of Jabhat al-Nusra. A Jordanian national, al-Sahaba is the brother-in-law of the late al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Mousab al-Zarqawi. Abu Adnan would not disclose any information about the men named by the Treasury Department and said al-Golani remained the Jabhat leader. Al-Golani’s real identity remains a well-kept secret, even to the leaders of other similar Islamist militant groups in Syria. At a recent meeting of the leaders of the Salafi groups Ahrar al-Sham, Suqoor al-Sham, Liwa al-Islam, Jabhat al-Nusra and several other units to discuss the creation of a Syria-wide pan-Islamist coalition, al-Golani kept his face covered throughout the proceedings, according to a participant. He was introduced by the Jabhat leaders in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo, who vouched for his identity, but al-Golani offered no information about himself. “He knew everything about each one of us,” the participant said, “how long we’d been in the fight, our personal backgrounds, how long we’d spent in prison [before the revolution], everything.”
Not that I really dig Assad or anything but the dead al-Qaeda are really starting to pile up. I'm failing to see a downside to that.

Stupid Jihadi Bitch Samantha Lewthwaite Dead!

Daily Mail:

'White widow' Samantha Lewthwaite may have been killed during the Nairobi siege.

As attempts to flush the remaining militants out of a Kenyan shopping centre continued, officials said three Islamist extremists had died during attempts to free their hostages.

stupidjihadibitch.jpg

Insiders said one was a white woman – adding weight to the theory that Lewthwaite, the fugitive widow of 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, was behind the attack that has left 62 dead and 170 injured.

Part of the group that carried out the attack on the mall was formed by US citizens, according to Kenya's foreign minister Amina Mohamed.

Its not 100% for certain she's dead, but don't kill my dreams.

Her first husband died in the 7/7 attacks on the London tube. Her second, Habib Ghani, was reportedly in the attack that killed Omar Hammami.

Its a little confusing how she became on the side of Godane and murdering civilians given the recent death of Ghani who appears to have been aligned with Hammami. Hammami repeatedly stated that he believed the outright targeting of non combatants civilians was Haram or forbidden under Islam.

That certainly wasn't Lewthwaite's opinion as she opined several times praising the 7/7 tube bombings and expressing her desire to die in a similar attack.

A twitter feed thought to be associated with her has been silent since the 21st. As has this Tumbler blog associated with her.

Her blogspot blog, well lets just say it ran into problems. As in more than one problem.

Heartbreak Co-Conspirator in Jihad Jane Case Can't Pray in Irish Prison Because of the Porn

I've waited a very long time for this.

An Algerian man jailed in Ireland and wanted by the United States on terrorism charges filed a damages suit against the Irish state on Tuesday, saying his prison conditions were "not even suitable for animals".

Ali Charaf Damache is wanted by the FBI for conspiracy in a foiled international plot to murder a Swedish cartoonist whose depiction of the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog caused outrage in Muslim countries.

"Cork Prison is not even suitable for animals," Damache, 47, told the High Court. "There was a television and radio (in my cell). When I practiced my prayer they (cellmates) deliberately put the volume up (and) they put pictures of naked women on the wall. I can't pray in a place where there are naked pictures..."

Oh the horror, if anyone has, you know, contact with some of Damache neighbors, ask them to put this one up for us.

Damache said he had been unable to wash before prayer and handling the Koran, as his faith requires, and was usually allowed to shower and change his underwear just once a week

Also I hear there is a rumor he's keeping hashish in his rectum. Better check that.

Damache was convicted in the Jihad Jane plot. Another accomplice Jihad Jamie (aka Jamie Paulin-Ramirez married Damache upon her arrival in Ireland only to find that Damache was only interested in the Muslima as a sex slave.

Cub scout leader Ingrid Loyau-Kennett selflessly engaged the terrorists in conversation and kept her nerve as one of them told her: “We want to start a war in London tonight.”

Mrs Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall, was one of the first people on the scene after the two Islamic extremists butchered a soldier in Woolwich, south east London.

Alleged al Qaeda Operative Charged in New York for Terrorism Offenses Against Americans Overseas

From FBI presser:

BROOKLYN—A six-count indictment was unsealed today in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York charging Ibrahim Suleiman Adnan Adam Harun, also known as “Spin Ghul,” with conspiracy to murder American military personnel in Afghanistan, conspiracy to bomb American diplomatic facilities in Nigeria, conspiracy to provide material support to al Qaeda, providing material support to al Qaeda, and related firearms and explosives counts. The indictment was returned under seal by a federal grand jury sitting in Brooklyn, New York on February 21, 2012, and relates to Harun’s alleged activities in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Africa beginning in 2001.

The charges were announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York; John Carlin, Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security; George Venizelos, Assistant Director in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office; and Raymond W. Kelly, Commissioner, New York City Police Department.

(presser continues below the fold, if anyone has a link the .pdf of the indictment please tweet to @darthodieus)

According to court documents, Harun, who was born in Saudi Arabia but claims citizenship in Niger, was extradited from Italy to the United States on October 4, 2012, and arraigned in a sealed proceeding in federal court in Brooklyn, New York on October 5, 2012. The case is scheduled for a public status conference before United States District Judge Edward R. Korman at the United States Courthouse, 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, New York, on March 22, 2013, at 2:30 p.m.

Harun is charged with crimes related to his alleged terrorist activities on behalf of al Qaeda beginning in 2001. According to the indictment and other court documents, beginning in 2001, the defendant traveled from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan with the intent to fight violent jihad. He arrived in Afghanistan shortly before the September 11, 2001 attacks. He then joined al Qaeda, received military-type training at al Qaeda training camps, and ultimately fought against United States and Coalition forces in Afghanistan with an al Qaeda fighting group based in Pakistan. According to the indictment, Harun allegedly attempted to kill United States military personnel in Afghanistan between 2002 and 2003. In 2003, in Pakistan, Harun received further al Qaeda training and traveled to Africa with the intent to conduct attacks on United States diplomatic facilities in Nigeria. While in Nigeria, Harun allegedly conspired with others to bomb such facilities.

According to the indictment and other documents, after the arrest of a co-conspirator, the defendant traveled to Libya, en route to Europe, but was apprehended in early 2005. The defendant then remained in Libyan custody until June 2011, when he was released by the Libyan government. He was then arrested by Italian authorities after assaulting officers on board a refugee ship bound for Italy. As noted, the defendant was indicted in the United States on February 21, 2012, and charged with (1) conspiring to murder United States nationals; (2) conspiring to bomb United States government facilities; (3) conspiring to provide material support to al Qaeda; (4) providing material support to al Qaeda; (5) using firearms in furtherance of crimes of violence; and (6) using explosives in furtherance of one or more felonies.

On July 5, 2012, the Naples Court of Appeals found the defendant extraditable to face the charges in the indictment pending against him in U.S. federal court, pursuant to the bilateral extradition treaty between the United States and Italy. On September 14, 2012, the Italian Minister of Justice ordered the defendant extradited. Federal agents took the defendant into custody in Italy on October 4, 2012, and he arrived in the United States on that same day.

If convicted of all the charges in the indictment, Harun faces a maximum possible sentence of life in prison.

“As alleged in the indictment, the defendant was a prototype al Qaeda operative, trained by al Qaeda in terrorist tradecraft, deployed to fight American servicemen, and dispatched to commit terrorist attacks throughout the world,” said United States Attorney Lynch. “Whether they try to attack our servicemen on the battlefield or scheme to kill our diplomats and citizens in embassies abroad, terrorists will find no refuge. The United States will use every tool at our disposal to protect our nation’s security and stop terrorist attacks before they happen.” Ms. Lynch expressed her gratitude to the law enforcement personnel who took part in the investigation, including Department of Defense Army investigators. She also thanked the Italian Ministry of Justice, the Prosecutor’s Office in Palermo, Italy, and other Italian police authorities in their support of the investigation and extradition of the defendant.

“The indictment unsealed today seeks to hold accountable an alleged al Qaeda operative who targeted U.S. personnel and diplomatic facilities across two continents. His arrest and extradition to the United States are important milestones in our ongoing counterterrorism efforts. I thank the many agents, analysts, and prosecutors who brought about this significant case,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security Carlin.

FBI Assistant Director in Charge Venizelos said, “Vowing allegiance to al Qaeda and training to commit violent jihad are not the worst of Harun’s alleged crimes. The allegations include actually attacking U.S troops and plotting to use explosives to kill U.S. diplomats. As alleged, Harun not only intended to but did commit acts of terrorism against Americans. Now he is subject to the American justice system. We remain committed to protecting the safety of Americans and our national security.”

Police Commissioner Kelly said, “As more al Qaeda operatives continue to be flushed from hiding, the NYPD remains vigilant to the fact that terrorists have repeatedly since 9/11 plotted to kill more Americans. We are determined not to let that happen. I want to commend our federal partners and the U.S. Attorney in the prosecution of this important case.”

The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys David Bitkower, Shreve Ariail, and Amanda Hector of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. Assistance was provided by Alamdar Hamdani, Joseph Kaster, and Annamartine Salick of the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division and by William Nardini of the Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs.

The charges contained in the indictment are merely allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Oops: Another Former Gitmo Inmate Killed Waging Jihad

Innocent: I do not think that word means what you think it means:

A former Guantanamo detainee named Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane has reportedly been killed while fighting in Syria....

Abderrahmane, who was born to a Danish mother and an Algerian father, was detained while fleeing Afghanistan in late 2001 and transferred to the Guantanamo detention facility, where he was held until early 2004...

The Facebook page for a group named Islamisk Budskab in Denmark announced Abderrahmane's martyrdom earlier this week. The group, which has al Qaeda in Iraq's flag on the header of its Facebook page, said that Danes should be "proud" of Abderrahmane because he finally achieved his goal.

The US killed a senior al Qaeda military commander during a recent drone strike in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan.

Sheikh Yasin Al Kuwaiti, who was killed in a US drone strike on Jan. 8, was a "key al Qaeda paramilitary commander" who was "very high up the food chain," a US intelligence official who tracks the terror group in Pakistan's tribal areas told The Long War Journal. Sheikh Yasin was a top commander and trainer for the Lashkar al Zil, or Shadow Army, al Qaeda's military cadre [for more information on the the Lashkar al Zil, see LWJ report, Al Qaeda's paramilitary 'Shadow Army'].

Sheikh Yasin was also described as a "foreign tactical trainer" by Reuters and "a senior Al Qaeda operative" by Dawn on the day that he was reported killed.

Yeah, I know, it's not really His birthday. But until He comes again to straighten us out let's throw a party in his honor!

May He be the honored guest in all your homes and hearts.

The Christmas story, according to Luke (ch. 2):

1: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2: (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3: And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4: And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6: And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8: And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9: And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12: And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13: And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15: And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16: And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17: And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18: And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19: But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20: And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

NBC Crew Escapes Captors

We reported yesterday that Richard Engel was thought to be held captive by terrorists from the Free Syrian Army. He and his crew were freed at a checkpoint run by another group of terrorists. There are also claims that the captors were Assad's terrorists, not our terrorists.

We're glad the NBC crew are safely out of Syria, too many danged old terrorists there.

Filed under Imperial Good News.

Update: Reading NBC's account of the kidnapping this morning Engel says that the kidnappers were operatives of the terrorist group Hizbollah. The confusion about which kind of terrorist these terrorists are comes from an earlier statement from NBC which incorrectly stated they were not Assad's terrorists.

Hizbollah, a specially designated terrorist group, gets most of its information services in the west despite sanctions and despite many complaints and pleas to take them down.

American to Spend Life in Iraqi Prison

Washingon Post:

An Iraqi court has sentenced an American citizen to life in prison on charges of assisting al Qaeda and financing terrorist activities in Iraq, according to a government statement.

The Interior Ministry said Omar Rashad Khalil, 53, was recruited by al Qaeda in Iraq in 2005. Khalil, an architectural engineer, is of Palestinian descent and entered Iraq in 2001, the ministry statement said.

The ministry released excerpts from a confession it said Khalil made in which he admitted to receiving money from a Syrian man in the United Arab Emirates to pay for terror attacks.

Also known as Abu Mohammed, Khalil was sentenced by Baghdad's central criminal court on Wednesday. Iraqi government officials could not immediately be reached for more details Thursday.

A spokesman for the US Embassy in Baghdad, Frank J. Finver, said embassy officials were aware of the reports and were checking them. He declined immediate comment.

federal judge this morning sentenced Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo to two consecutive life sentences, plus 60 years in prison for plotting to bomb and shoot Fort Hood soldiers in 2011.
Abdo, who represented himself at the sentencing hearing after dismissing his court-appointed lawyers last month, told U.S. District Judge Walter Smith that he remains committed to “jihad,” an Arabic word meaning struggle, that in some Islamic contexts can mean holy war.

“I don’t ask the court for mercy because Allah is the one who gives me mercy,” Adbo said, referring to God in Arabic. He said he was motivated by what he called crimes committed by the U.S. and the U.S. military against Muslims.
“I have continued to answer the call of jihad and will continue to the day I am called to account for my deeds,” he continued

Yeah? Well I guess Allah will have to wait 60 years past your second death.

Freedom to Blog is Strong in Aaron Walker (Updated)

Aaron can now speak and blog about Brett Kimberlin (note: temporary) thanks to the lawyers who stood up against anti First Amendment "Team Kimberlin"

BTW, the retired Maryland judge who slapped the unconstitutional part of the peace order on Aaron should stay retired. Just sayin..

May the force continue be strong with Aaron Walker.

Update: Stacy McCain has more background on this.

UPDATE: Judge Nelson W. Rupp Jr. presided over today’s hearing, with attorney Reginald W. Bours III representing Walker, who did not attend the hearing at Judicial Center in Rockville. In a brief telephone interview, Walker said that Kimberlin filed a counter-motion that did not address the First Amendment legal issues at stake, but rather “made a bunch of new accusations” against Walker.

UPDATE II: It is important to note that Judge Rupp’s ruling only temporarily permits Walker to speak and write about Kimberlin, pending a July 5 hearing in Maryland state appeals court. Walker is appealing a May 29 ruling by Montgomery County District Court Judge C.J. Vaughey that granted a peace order sought by Kimberlin against Walker.

Also, Aaron will file a report on this hearing at his blog Allergic2Bull

I imagine July 5th can't come soon enough for Aaron Walker(aka Worthing). The "new bunch of accusations" against Walker is par for the course for Kimberlin.

Patterico stated this on his post: Aaron Walker May Speak About Brett Kimberlin"P.S. There is a very interesting aspect of Kimberlin’s response that I will be blogging in full. You will definitely want to read that post. Trust me on this one."

Indeed, looking forward to his post.

Update II: Aaron has now posted on this and has some wise words to those following this saga.[must read] He also posted a Scrbd of the stay order.

May the force continue to be strong with Aaron Walker

Cornhole Watch: Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed

BBC:

Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed, a resident in Sweden, went to Somalia in 2009 to learn bomb-making and detonation skills, the US Attorney's Office said.

He also contributed 3,000 euros ($3,769, £2,433) to the Islamist mlitants, court documents revealed.

Al-Shabab, which joined al-Qaeda earlier this year, is fighting a UN-backed government in Somalia.

The 38-year-old man could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail and will be sentenced in November.

Hey Ibrahim...

Another Happy Ending

Back in 2006 when Jawa Report was covering the Iraq war, Rusty and I began to notice the same man appearing in a lot of snuff films. I can remember a discussion we had about Abu Rami, specifically that he looked like an orangutan, was taller than the rest and especially got off on killing people. There really was a boogie man.

Its nice to know that he's dead.

AQ in Yemen Droned

Drone drone Superdrone.

U.S. drone strikes targeted al Qaeda hideouts in southern Yemen on Wednesday, killing at least nine suspected militants, three senior security officials said.

No senior al Qaeda leaders died in the attack in the Shabwa province town of Azzan, the officials said. The strikes' targets included a home suspected of harboring militants, the officials said.

La ta di daaaa, la ta deeee dummmm.

Monday Monday

So good to me...

Two missiles are reported to have hit a suspected militant compound before dawn in Hesokhel, to the east of Miranshah, the capital of North Waziristan.

The frontier tribal region is considered a hub of activity by al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.

There have been eight US drone strikes in the past two weeks despite Pakistani demands for them to be stopped.

In the latest incident, the first missile struck the compound in Hesokhel before dawn, killing three militants, security officials said.

A second missile then killed 12 more militants who had arrived at the scene, they added.

The bodies of the suspected militants have not yet been identified, but there were unconfirmed reports that foreigners were among the dead.

Four Islamists guilty of Danish terror plot over Muhammad cartoons (Update)

Imperial Good News

Four men have been found guilty by a Danish court of planning a terrorist attack on the offices of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in Copenhagen.[More details...see links below with asterisk..ed]

The court heard the men wanted to kill a large number of people in revenge for the paper's publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in 2005.

The four were all Muslims resident in Sweden. Police said they were arrested just hours before the foiled attack.

Munir Awad, Omar Abdallah Aboelazm and Munir Ben Mohamed Dhahri, a Tunisian citizen, were picked up by police on 29 December 2010 at a flat near Copenhagen.

Sabhi Ben Mohamed Zalouti was arrested a day later after crossing into Sweden, then extradited back to Denmark.

Update: The four terrorists were only sentenced to 12 f'n years!
The court sentenced each of the men to 12 years in prison for their part in the plot. The prosecution had asked for a 16-year penalty, citing the preparations the men had made and pointing out that they were just hours away from making their attack when they were stopped by police. The court decided that there was not a compelling reason to give the four a harsher penalty than had been doled out in previous terrorism cases.
Harsh my arse!

Related, a little "background" on three of them:
Thuggish drug-addled wife-beating rapists (you know, Mujahideen) (also bumped)

Munir Awad: In addition to his less-than-excellent adventures in Somalia and Pakistan, Awad - along with his brother - was convicted of assaulting a hotel security guard in 2003. Compared to his co-conspirators he's a saint.

Mounir Dhahri: A retired cocaine addict with a history of assault and domestic violence. He has previously injured both a girlfriend and a wife, and was convicted in 2004 of threatening to kill two employees of a Seven Eleven when they refused to allow him to "borrow" a phone. Also in 2004 Dhahri threw his then-girlfriend into a wall and strangled her, and then intimidated her to prevent her from testifying in court. He was convicted of assaulting his wife in 2000.

Omar Abdalla Aboelazm: This fine young man - born and raised in Sweden - successfully pled "insanity" after raping or otherwise sexually assaulting a 25-year-old woman, a 23-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl, a 13-year-old girl and three 15-year-old girls. An assessment that he required psychiatric care and that he would likely remain a menace to society in the future evidently did not preclude his involvement in the terrorist plot (arguably it made him a valuable member of the team, assuming they could get him to Copenhagen without incident).

More:
*Details of plot emerge in terror trial
*Recordings played in terrorism trial include defendants saying things such as: "Anyone in front of you, they die"
Irhaby 911, Sahbi Zalouti[IH forum]
Munir Awad's luck might just have run out

Imperial Good News: Taliban Shadow Governor for Nuristan Province Dead

Long War Journal:

Coalition and Afghan special operations forces killed the Taliban's deputy shadow governor for Nuristan province in an airstrike today. The deputy shadow governor was killed just one week after ISAF captured a liaison to the Peshawar Shura who also served as a facilitator for the Taliban's shadow governor in Nuristan.

The International Security Assistance Force confirmed that Jamil ur Rahman and another "insurgent" were killed in a "precision airstrike" today in the Waygal district in Nuristan.

ISAF described Jamil as "a senior insurgent leader in Nuristan province" who "provided leadership and support to insurgent forces throughout Nuristan and Kunar and coordinated insurgent activities across eastern Afghanistan."

Mohammad Tamim Nuristani, the governor of Nuristan, confirmed the death of "Sheikh Jamil" and described him as the deputy shadow governor for Nuristan. Abdul Hakim, a "militant commander," was also killed in the airstrike in the village of Amshosh, according to Pajhwok Afghan News.

If you were wondering just what he looks like.

He is the guy leading prayer in this Jihadtube video that was uploaded April 12th.

Double Your Pleasure

It was a wonderfully productive weekend.

On Saturday Superdrone took out 11 AQAP.

Two missile strikes by U.S. drones killed at least 11 suspected al-Qaida members in Yemen Saturday, security officials said.

Oh but if that doesn't brighten your Monday quite enough.

Yemeni military kills 24 suspected al Qaeda militants!

Government troops in southern Yemen on Sunday attacked al Qaeda hideouts, killing two dozen suspected militants in the latest push to clear the area of the terror organization, local security officials said.
Awesome!

I can't wait to read about this in the next issue of Inspire. If there is a next issue of Inspire that is.

Everyone feeling Inspired?

Superdrone Hands Ansar al-Sunnah Leaders Their Ass

CNN:

A U.S. drone strike killed eight militants in southern Yemen on Thursday morning, the latest hit in an intensified U.S. air camaign against al Qaeda and its affiliates in the area, security officials said.

The attack targeted a convoy carrying senior leaders of the Ansar al-Sharia militant network, an offshoot of al Qaeda, in the Jaar district of Abyan province. The drone strike was followed by a string of air strikes by Yemen's air force, three security officials said.

Given the history of Ansar al Sunnah (rebranded Ansar al-Sharia) in Iraq I'm especially thrilled to see this.

These folks really needed killing.

Airstrike Kills 15 in Yemen
Coincidence? I think Not

Ynet:

An airstrike Wednesday killed 15 al-Qaida-linked militants in their training camp in the country's south, Yemeni military officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier US drone attacks, but the US did not comment.

The officials said the air attack targeted the militants' camp north of the town of Jaar in the southern province of Abyan. It coincided with a Yemeni government offensive against the militants.
Related? Yes I think so.
