Good News! The Islamic State of Iraq Opens Sharia Court in Azaz
I guess this means that rather than just murdering Christians for refusing to convert on the street there will now be a short ceremonious hearing before senior al-Qaeda leaders before, you know, the head choppings.
Emir of The Islamic State of Iraq an al-Sham, al-Qaeda affiliate group, declared opening a new Shariah court and Police station on Thursday in 'the new Islamic Emirate', Azaz, according to his twitter account.I'm sure John McCain will be along shortly to explain how this is an improvement.
The Sate new procedures came days after controlling the border city from the local rebel group known as the Northern Storm that led the fight last year to oust government forces from the town.

al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria Claims Murder of 82 Iraqi Civilians Promises Genocide in Syria
The Iraqi branch of al-Qaida claimed responsibility Friday for bombings earlier this week that killed at least 82 people, mostly in Shiite areas of the capital, calling them retaliation for the execution of Sunni prisoners by the Shiite-led government.Yesterday al-Qaeda in the Levant and a-Nusra (Syria) promised to murder women and children in Syria in response to civilian deaths from the Syrian use of Chemical weapons.
Wednesday's attacks involved car bombs and other explosives that mainly targeted parking lots, outdoor markets and restaurants in Shiite districts in Baghdad during the morning rush hour. Some Sunni areas were also hit later in the day.
A statement posted on a militant website by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the al-Qaida affiliate in Iraq, took responsibility for the deadly attacks. The group claimed the attacks were a response to the Aug. 19 execution of 17 Sunni prisoners, all but one of them convicted on terrorism-related charges.
DUBAI, Aug 25 (Reuters) - An al Qaeda-affiliated rebel commander in Syria has pledged to target communities of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite minority with rockets in revenge for an alleged chemical attack near Damascus, according to an audio recording seen on Sunday.So al-Qaeda basically just promised to commit genocide against at least two towns, to kill every man woman and child. But so far as we know they won't use Sarin to do it. Just throw acid and bullets, chop off a few heads maybe.
"For every chemical rocket that has fallen on our people in Damascus, one of their villages will, by the will of God, pay for it," Abu Mohammad al-Golani of the al-Nusra Front said in the recording posted on YouTube. "On top of that we will prepare a thousand rockets that will be fired on their towns in revenge for the Damascus Ghouta massacre."
The Syrian opposition has accused government forces of an attack on insurgent-held suburbs of the capital last week where poison gas appears to have killed hundreds of people.
"To the bereaved mothers of the children and the people of Ghouta, I say that your blood is a debt that we and every mujahid (Islamic holy fighter) have to pay," Golani said in the recording entitled, "An eye for an eye".
That's like totally civilized you know.

Good News! At Least One Bullet Hit Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Right Between the Snot and the Spit
If it wasn't Tsarnaev, I might make a comment about marksmanship or the cost of ammo. Maybe even trigger happiness?
Boston marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev suffered multiple and severe gunshot injuries before his capture in April, newly released court documents show.Sweet!
The most serious of the injuries was a gunshot wound that appeared to enter through the left inside of his mouth and exit through the lower left side of his face, said Stephen Ray Odom, a trauma surgeon who treated Tsarnaev at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
"This was a high-powered injury that has resulted in skull-base fracture, with injuries to the middle ear, the skull base, ... his ... vertebrae ... as well as injury to the pharynx, (and) the mouth." Odom said in testimony given April 22, three days after Tsarnaev was arrested following the bombing.

While Muslims Die By the Boatload Fat Jewish Traitor Adam Gadahn Plays Internetz
An American al Qaeda militant has called for more attacks on Western diplomats in the Arab world, praising the killers of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on September 11 last year, a U.S.-based monitoring group said on Sunday.A recording in Arabic posted on websites used by Islamist militants?
Western nations shut embassies across the Middle East and North Africa early this month, after a warning of a possible militant attack. Many have reopened, and Britain said its Yemen embassy would open on Sunday after being closed for 12 days.
Adam Gadahn, a California-born convert to Islam with a $1 million U.S. price on his head, appealed to wealthy Muslims to offer militants rewards to kill ambassadors in the region, citing bounty set for killing the U.S. ambassador to Yemen, Washington-based SITE monitoring group said.
"These prizes have a great effect in instilling fear in the hearts of our cowardly enemies," Gadahn said in the 39-minute video recording in Arabic posted on websites used by Islamist militants, according to SITE.

Cornhole Watch: Goatly aka Emerson Begolly Gets 8/12 Years
A western Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty to using the Internet to promote terrorist attacks against American military and civilian targets has been sentenced to 8 ½ years in federal prison.WTAE:
Twenty-four-year-old Emerson Begolly of Redbank Township was sentenced Tuesday on one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence. Authorities say he posted on an Islamic extremist Web forum he moderated.
His public defender asked for leniency in exchange for information Begolly has allegedly provided in other terror-related investigations.Oh my! He snitched on the Muj..... wonder what Allah's punishment for that is?

Heartbreak Co-Conspirator in Jihad Jane Case Can't Pray in Irish Prison Because of the Porn
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".Oh the horror, if anyone has, you know, contact with some of Damache neighbors, ask them to put this one up for us.
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..."
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.

Why The West Loses
One of the things we at Jawa Report have tried to do over the years is to not only follow and fight online terrorist propaganda, but to tell our readers what the terrorists really say.
Its one thing to hear on the news that Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, Thomas Tucker, Kristian Menchaca or Tom Fox were brutally murdered by terrorist in a sanitized sound bite on the evening news or to hear the selected quotes from the latest Zawahiri tape.
Its quite another to see for yourself the butchery of a terrorist snuff film or read the complete message from an al-Qaeda leader in its unfiltered state.
But the vast majority of the American Public have never seen or read these things. Which leaves them vulnerable to false impressions created by a politically correct and sanitized sound bites about a Religion of Peace, misunderstood oppressed Muslims and the its our fault narrative about so called American Hegemony and Imperialism being the root cause of terrorism.
So this article Why The West Doesn't Understand Islamists (They Don't Read What the Radicals REALLY Say) is spot on the mark.
Notice his different angle on what for the Western author would be a tale of Western imperialism and on the technological and organizational backwardness of Muslim peoples. Al-Qaradawi does not put the emphasis on Western strength or even injustice but on Muslim weakness. He does not flinch from facing the humiliations of the situation. He promises--as the Arab nationalists did sixty years ago--that his doctrine will bring rapid development and tremendous power. Like Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev once said, al-Qaradawi pledges to the West, ""We will bury you."Read the rest, you'll be glad you did.
Islamism is a formula to turn inferiority into superiority, to make the Muslim world number one in the world. It uses religion and is formed by key themes in Islam but ultimately it has nothing to do with religion as such. This is a political movement.
Al-Qaradawi is not upset by recent U.S. policy but by Western policy for well over a century. This bitterness is not going to be conciliated. The problem is not in Western actions—which any way cannot be undone—but with the interpretation of these actions. They are seen as rooted in a desire to destroy Islam, as being based on a permanent enmity, and no gesture by contemporary Western leaders can lead to the end of this view. On the contrary, such things will be interpreted through the prism of this view, as a trick or a sign of retreat and weakness.

Following a rash of criticism from U.S. Jewish groups, a Palestinian nonprofit funded by Western governments has apologized for accusing Jewish people of using “Christian blood” during the Passover holiday.More here at Elder of Zion.
Miftah, a Palestinian nonprofit group founded by Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian lawmaker, said Monday it regrets publishing an article on its website accusing “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.”
Miftah had refused to apologize for the article last week, instead lashing out at pro-Israel bloggers who highlighted the offensive article.

Tunisia Arrests Ansar al-Sharia Member Bilel #Chaouach In Connection With US Embassy Assault
His Mother Is 'Proud', Calls For Jihad
Via Thomas Joscelyn at the LWJ
The Tunisian government arrested Bilel Chaouachi, a Salafist imam who has openly praised Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri, earlier this week. Chaouachi was allegedly involved in the storming of the US Embassy in Tunis days after terrorists struck the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.Googlish:
"Bilel Chaouachi is suspected of involvement in the September 14 events of the attack on the embassy and the American school, but before that there is another case pending against him for incitement to violence," Tunisian Interior Ministry spokesman Khaled Tarrouche explained, according to Kapitalis.
he 26-year-old Chaouachi has been cited as a theology "student" in various press accounts because he attended a theological graduate school in Tunis. But Magharebia.com identifies him as a "a member of the salafist Ansar al Sharia group."
"The mother of Bilel Chaouachi Salafist attacks on Ennahdha and calls for Jihad":
In a video recorded by a Salafist group, the Salafist Bilel Chaouachi mother arrested yesterday Tuesday, November 6, gave strong criticism against Ennahdha, calling it a "great enemy" to the end of the recording[...]Remember, Bronco bamma said: "Osama bin Laden is dead and al-Qaeda is decimated."
Speaking directly to members of Ennahdha, she said: "You do not try to enforce Sharia, but it will be done in spite of you and whatever the cost. Your democracy is only kufr and not follow you. You are wandering in and we on the right path. "
Ms. Chaouachi then addressed the Tunisian mothers to express "great happiness" may feel a mother who offers his son Jihad. She ended up calling the Salafi sheikhs to join on the same line together to fight "the enemy."

#Benghazi Terror Attack Suspect List Expands To Include Egyptians, Al Qaeda in Iraq
[Al Qaeda gif image via Zionist Bandwidth bitch]
Catherine Herridge via Fox
The list of suspects in the Libya terror attack now extends to a handful of suspected militants aligned with an Egyptian group known as the Jamal Network, Fox News has learned."Al Qaeda in Iraq" brings to mind Zawahiri's bro Muhammed(mentioned in the report) who was released from prison thanks to Egypt's "Arab Spring":
A U.S. official said the Jamal Network is committed to violence to attain its political ambitions, adding they are "hard-core, violent extremists in Egypt who are trying to develop a relationship with Al Qaeda."
Fox News is told that there are between two- and three-dozen suspects actively being investigated at any one time in connection with the Benghazi attack. The suspect list is fluid, drawn from intelligence ranging from intercepts to witness accounts, with new names being added and dropped on a regular basis[...]
The Jamal Network takes its name from Mohammed Jamal Abu Ahmed, who was released from an Egyptian jail during the Arab Spring and is now trying to establish himself as a leader in Jihadi circles. U.S. officials believe he established training camps in Libya, and it was in these camps that some of the fighters linked to the attack were trained.[...]
The additional suspects are being investigated after one Tunisian suspect, Ali Ani al-Harzi, was first arrested in Turkey -- after being identified through telephone intercepts where he bragged to friends about his involvement -- and transferred to Tunisian custody. There is also at least one suspect with ties to Al Qaeda in Iraq.

Islamic Terrorist Calls for Murder of German Anti Sharia Group Members for Insulting Islam
"Far right" in this story and other mainstream media stories means opposition to Islamization and Sharia. "Islamist calls for murder of German far-right party: media," from Expatica, May 20 (thanks to David):The terrorist in question is Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī’. Here is a copy of the threat uploaded to Youtube here by Jundullah Studio.A German Islamist is calling for the murder of members of a far-right party that regularly provokes ultra-conservative Muslims using cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, a newspaper reported.
According to an article due to appear Monday in the Tageszeitung daily, an Islamist from Bonn in western Germany has appeared in a video on an Islamic forum in which he encouraged "the killing of all activists from the Pro NRW party".
Members of the small extreme-right political party held a campaign event using anti-Islamic caricatures ahead of an election in Germany's most populous state North Rhine-Westphalia on May 13.
In his appeal, the Islamist urged the collection of personal information on Pro NRW members, including their home addresses and work schedules, with the goal of attacking them.

The Huffington Post has an article about how Allah's command for men to own, control and beat their wives into submission can abolish domestic violence.
Not included with the rather extensive article about Quran verse 4:34 is... well, the verse itself:
Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).

Senate Study on The Online Radicalization of Zachary Chesser of Revolution Muslim
The Internet and social media are integral ingredients in the rapid radicalization of homegrown terrorists, said a staff study by the Senate homeland security committee that recommended a coordinated government response to counter online radical propaganda and help communities intervene in the radicalization process.The .pdf copy of the study is here.
The report, released on Feb. 27 by the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, was based on the close study of the personal writings of Zachary Chesser, the Bristow, VA man now serving a 25-year sentence for threatening the writers of the South Park television show, soliciting violent jihadists to desensitize law enforcement, and attempting to provide material support to Al-Shabaab.
The study also provides some unique detail into Chesser’s motivations and personality.
The Senate staff said Chesser’s case was a classic case study of how quickly online radicalization can occur compared to the traditional process of face to face contact between an aspirant and an established terrorist group.
Jawa report was not mentioned in the study, we were basically robbed. But we're getting really used to that ;)

American CyberJihadi Killed in Pakistan
Why I'll be darned, the Pakistanis are good for something!
AP: Moeed Abdul Salam didn't descend into radical Islam for lack of other options. He grew up in a well-off Texas household, attended a pricey boarding school and graduated from one of the state's most respected universities.The details of the GIMF (Global Islamic Media Front) press release say he got his start as a member of Egyptian Islamic Jihad Group and joined al-Qaeda right after 9/11.
But the most unlikely thing about his recruitment was his family: Two generations had spent years promoting interfaith harmony and combatting Muslim stereotypes in their hometown and even on national television.
Salam rejected his relatives' moderate faith and comfortable life, choosing instead a path that led him to work for al-Qaida. His odyssey ended late last year in a middle-of-the-night explosion in Pakistan. The 37-year-old father of four was dead after paramilitary troops stormed his apartment.
It also stresses the importance that al-Qaeda places on internet propaganda and communications.
He established diffuse Jihadi media groups and trained his brothers who followed the path of the Jihadi media. He administrated many websites and Jihadi forums, and he guided and planned and attacked the enemy masterfully. He led the Jihadi forums and websites of splendor, attacking the strongholds of arrogance and infidelity, weakening the determination of its troops, and sabotaging their great media plans”Now is the time at Jawa Report when we dance.
In addition, it's nice that he was killed in Pakistan. It saves listening to all that bullshit crap about targeting and killing al-Qaeda members who also happen to be US citizens.

al-Qaeda Murders 57 More Muslims in Iraq
There's no question that al-Qaeda has been waiting to try and destabilize Iraq. The only question is now if the Iraqis can weed out these sleepers in an efficient manner. You can tell its al-Qaeda when the solution to an issue is always indiscriminate murder.
AP: BAGHDAD (AP) -- A suicide bomber targeting Shiite pilgrims in southern Iraq killed 30 people, just hours after a wave of bombings hit Shiite areas in Baghdad and killed 27 others, officials said.
The coordinated attacks targeting Shiites bore the hallmarks of Sunni insurgents linked to al-Qaida and added to a deepening sectarian crisis in Iraq that exploded just as soon as the last Americans troops left in mid-December. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The NY Post reports:Here is a .pdf of the complaint against Jose Pimentel.The NYPD and Manhattan DA’s office have arrested a terror suspect who was planning to bomb city police facilities and US military sites, where he plotted to target returning war personnel and the families who gathered to welcome them home, The Post has learned.
The suspect, who lives in Manhattan, was arrested after he actually purchased bomb-making materials, sources said. He’d been on the authorities’ radar for about a year, the sources said.
It wasn’t immediately clear exactly where he planned to attack.
We can report here exclusively at PJM that the man arrested is Jose Pimentel of Harlem. On his Facebook page he describes himself as:
I am a Muslim convert from the Dominican Republic looking for other muslims living in the US specially in New York City to share a brotherhood with and to help each other stay firm on the religion. Also looking for anyone that wishes to learn more about Islam and other religions.
Jose was a prolific terrorist blogger and familiar face around the Revolution Muslim and Islam Policy websites. He shares a blog called http://www.kalamullah.com/ who's donations tracked back to Islam4UK and Islampolicy members.
His Youtube channel is here http://www.youtube.com/user/mujahidfisabillilah1.
Here are just a few of his websites.
Oh and Jose, watch the cornhole Akhi!
Update: Reading CNN's description of this guy as a Lone Wolf is laughable. This person is a widely known highly networked individual who was a very active al-Qaeda propagandist in the online Jihadi community.
UpdateII: A note the our friend Jihadi Princess: You can wipe the websites clean all you want. Its too late.
Image credit Yahoo which has more including pics of Jose making his bomb in his mommy's kitchen, just like his bro Samir Khan instructed him to.

172nd Infantry Brigade 160 United Taliban of Losers 0
Twice in the span of a month, the Taliban has unleashed human waves on one of the U.S. Army’s most isolated Afghan outposts. Twice, the American soldiers guarding the tiny fort have beat back the attackers, killing scores of extremists while suffering no losses of their own.The best part
Once the shooting starts, the Taliban know they probably have only a few minutes before the Apache helicopters and Air Force jet fighters arrive overhead and unleash Hell. “When fighters arrive on station, the insurgents can’t run away fast enough,” said Capt. DeShane Greaser, commander of the Margah troops.Losers!
...The air support arrived just in time, Greaser said. “There was a vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device heading to the COP and after the first bombs hit we got reports that the enemy said, ‘We’re turning around, there are jets overhead.”‘

Yousef al-Khattab Turns to the Dark Side
Wow it appears Joey has a new hobby, outing Jihobbyists.
Today's specimen is Abu Hadeed (shown here using his Youtube nickname). All jihobist like him try to strong arm you into accepting their rhetoric and most end up in jail where they believe they are the 'aseerun'. Anyway he is begging to make his point public so I will give him a platform. Interesting is the amount of times in his posts that he insults Khaleeji Arabs and uses terms like greasy & slimy. Seems to be a classic case of self hate,failure and blame it on the kuffar. You be the judge and don't forget to join his network,because indeed birds of a feather flock together.I knew Joey would see it our way.
Since Yousef had his falling out with the Jihad community they have turned their hatred against him as well. As they say politics make strange bedfellows.
In fact I'm of the opinion that even though I don't trust Yousef any further than I can throw him, his knowledge and expertise would be invaluable in the fight against terrorism and the spread of al-Qaeda propaganda.
We keep our focus tight here, for the most part we only direct our ire at known designated terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and those who advocate for murder and terrorism against civilians. Civilians just like Joey.
Why don't you come with us? You're pretty good in a fight. We could use you.

American Traitor Anwar al-Awlaki Killed in Yemen!
Upd: SAMIR KHAN, Threatened Rusty's Family, Dead!
Obama Confirms, Awlaki DEAD
Now with More Cowbell, M.C. Hammer
Online Jihadis Confirm: Samir Khan Dead!
Anwar al-Awlaki, DEAD!
Samir Khan, DEAD!
The US-born radical Islamist cleric and suspected al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen, the country's defence ministry has said.Reportedly, al-Awlaki was killed by Yemeni forces.
A statement said only that he died "along with some of his companions."
UPDATE by Matt Damon: Looks like it may have been a drone that got him.
Al-Arabiya television network cited local tribal sources as saying suspected U.S. drone aircraft - which are known to operate in Yemen - fired two missiles Friday at a convoy of vehicles believed to be carrying al-Awlaki and his guards.We will see how this shakes out...true or not.
Remember Sammy keep looking up......there is a drone with your name on it.
UPDATE II by Matt Damon: From Jake Tapper twitter account.
@ JaketapperWe know that Samir Khan was in contact with al-Awaki as his articles were in Sammy's last issue of Inspire released just a few days ago. Is he dead too? One can only hope.
Jake Tapper Sr admin officials tell ABC News that al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed
Update: Saints be praised Samir Khan is dead!
Yemen Defense Ministry says another American in al-Qaida, Samir Khan, was killed with al-AwlakiUpdate by Rusty: Reports are still in flux. As of this moment it's hard to confirm whether or not Awlaki and Khan are both dead. US officials are confirming, off the record, that Awlaki is dead -- but Jane Novak, who has deep contacts in Yemen, says that a local news agency, nass press, is reporting that Awlaki survived the attack and was only injured. And as Ed reminds us, this wouldn't be the first time Awlaki was reported dead. But other tribal sources claim he's dead.
As you know, the Arab world is rife with rumor that passes as fact. We'll keep you posted, but given that US officials are confirming off the record that Awlaki is dead, then I'll have to treat the naysaying as rumors until we hear otherwise.
The really personal news here would be that Samir Khan is dead. As long time readers know, Samir and I have had personal disputes over the years. It was Samir, then blogging as Inshallahshaheed, who threatened to kill my family. He even made this nice little graphic to go along with the threat.
Inshallahshaheed is Arabic for God willing, a martyr. Well, you got your wish Samir.
He who laughs last, laughs loudest.
Also, the guy not killed in a drone strike. He laughs loudest, too.
Update by Rusty: Sources in Yemen clarify why the rumor that he survived started: there were two missiles, he survived the first one .... but that second one? That one was the kill shot.
Update by Rusty: I like this from Malkin, who anticipates the reaction of the far left and some in the Ron Paul nutzo camp:
Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.Indeed, we are. Too many have forgotten that in war, the rules are different.
On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.
Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.
We are at war.
And on cue, Glenn Greenwald opens his mouth and proves that he's an idiot. Update: And the chief Paultard himself, Ron Paul.
Update by Rusty: Two conflicting tales of how big this is by CT analysts.
Alix Levine: It's big
Daveed Gartenstein-Ross: Not as big as you might think.
I'm with Alix, it's big. What Daveed is talking about is the long-term resilience of al Qaeda. Yes, they're resilient ... but Samir and Awlaki are media personalites that they won't be able to replace very easily. And since they both were raised in America, they will have a hard time finding someone to fill their shoes. Even Adam Gadahn, another al Qaeda propagandist from the US, didn't have the same type of impact on Western audiences.
Samir, especially, spoke in terms that American and English speaking European radicals could relate to. Gadahn has been in Afghanistan/Pakistan so long, that he sounds no different than any other radical from the Middle East.
In a tweet to me, Daveed actually agrees with this sentiment. It's just a matter of long vs. short-term perspective. But let's not be buzzkills today, okay people? It's a day to celebrate.
If the reports are true, then AQAP has lost its most important propagandist.Agreed, with the caveat Awlaki was the best English spokesman for al Qaeda, but Samir Khan was its greatest propagandist. Also, the go to guy within the organization who really understood social media.
Update by Rusty: President Obama, speaking live at Admiral Mullen's retirement, has confirmed that Awlaki is dead!
One last thought: If Samir was in one of the cars, is it possible that the other American traitor -- the mysterious "editor" of Inspire, Yayha Ibrahim, also killed?
Update by Rusty: Wow, I can't thank Michelle Malkin enough for the lengthy post praising our work over the years counterring Khan's online radicalization message. Thanks Michelle!
Update by Rusty: Live press conference at WH.
Not a lot of details, so far, but a reiteration of news that came out earlier that we are now calling Awlaki “chief of external operations” for AQAP. In other words, his role wasn't simply "inspirational", it was operational.
Update: Carney says he doesn't have any information on whether or not Samir Khan was also killed.
Update by Rusty: Lulz, CAIR joins the lunatic left on right, concerned over "Constitutional issues" raised by killing traitors who openly admit they are at war with US.
Update by Rusty: Was Samir Khan guilty of being an American traitor? That's the question being asked by the left. But let's see how Samir answered this question in his own words.
And over at PJM's The Tatler, they are running a number of old posts reminding us that Awlaki once was in tight with the powers that be in Washington. How tight? Well, he once trained Muslim chaplains on Capital Hill and lectured on Islam inside the Pentagon.
UPDATE by Rusty: An poster at the top tier al Qaeda linked al Fidaa forum claims he's from Yemen, and that Samir Khan has indeed been killed. Roggio posts the SITE news:
May Allah bless you my noble brothers. The news is true. We say, may Allah have mercy on our sheikh and our beloved, Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed this morning in the area between al-Jawf and Marib in a Hilux 2005 vehicle, along with six people accompanying him...This is indeed good news!
Peace be upon you my dear brother. By Allah, I am from Yemen. Allah is witness that this news came upon us like a thunderbolt, but we consider him a martyr, because he was martyred along with another person, an American citizen of Pakistani origin who specialized in programming. The news was confirmed to me, and I apologize for the delay, because I was praying.
Bwahahahaaa update: It now appears that Anwar al-Awlaki will never again enjoy the company of a street hooker <---h/t: Will Amos
UPDATE by Rusty: Fingerprints confirmed identities of Awlaki and Khan:
U.S. operatives on the ground in Yemen used fingerprint analysis to confirm that a joint CIA-military drone strike Friday killed American militants Anwar Awlaki and Samir Khan, according to a U.S. government official briefed on the operation....UPDATE by SH: NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has Sammy down pat
“Samir Khan was a bonus. It was a twofer,” said Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas), who serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security. “It’s a pretty good hit.”
..Kelly said Khan had extensive contacts in New York City and published the English language Inspire Magazine, which instructed lone wolves on how to build bombs at home, and in the most recent issue identified Grand Central Station as a target.Related highlights from our hundreds and hundreds of posts on Samir Khan. Our Samir Khan archives can't hold all the posts, and these are just a few I could find going back to 2007... but we were following him behind the scenes, long before he got outed by the NYT:
Kelly said Al-Awlaki was focused like no other on attacking the U.S. and Khan legitimized attacking women and children.

Tarek Mehanna's Mouthpiece to Whine Free Speech And Request Dismissal of Material Support of al-Qaeda Charge
Tarek Mehanna, the Sudbury resident accused in a 2010 indictment of conspiring to kill American troops in Iraq, will ask a judge today to dismiss some of the charges accusing him of providing support to al Qaeda, the Associated Press is reporting in the Sacramento Bee.Remember having terrorist propaganda is not by default unlawful. It becomes unlawful when disseminated with the aim of helping al-Qaeda's distribution goals or if it is in such a context that it is clear it is posted with the intent of support and advocacy for al-Qaeda.
The report says Mehanna's lawyers will argue today at Moakley Federal Courthouse in Boston that most of his activities are protected by the First Amendment in relation to free speech.
We are in a time of war you know. The enemy's propaganda network is a fair and crucial target. No war is ever fought, won or lost without propaganda.
Mehanna's claim of free speech or informational purposes is laughable when you consider the context. See our post here on Mehanna's multiple and long standing connections to multiple convicted terrorists and terrorist propagandists.
Like clockwork, Mehanna's family defends him as a nice boy who just completed his graduate work to become a pharmacist. What his family may or may not know is that Mehanna goes by the online handle "Abu Sayaba" and runs the "Iskandari" website which is devoted to promoting the Salafi ideology.So his contacts include convicted terrorists and also Samir Khan who now runs AQAP's online magazine that inspired the recent attempted attack on Fort Hood.
For instance, Tarek "Abu Sayaba" Mehanna has, literally, dozens of posts recounting the words of Abdullah Azzam, the intellectual backbone of al Qaeda. Also among his favorite authors are Sayyid Qutb.
In addition to friends like Maldanado who has been convicted on terrorism related charges, Mehanna's online buddies include:
Shades of Swords, who glorifies the executed Bali bombers as martyrs.
Inshallahshaheed, who we have an entire category devoted to and who claims he personally doesn't go off to fight the jihad because "it's hard" and who recently has set up his own media division in support of terrorist organizations.
Jihad Fields Are Calling, who's name pretty much sums it up.
And so on and so forth. In other words, the people he associated himself with online are either a) actively engaged in violent jihad; or b) actively engaged in supporting violent jihad through the distribution of terrorist propaganda.
His chances of having this dismissed runs about the same as former Revolution Muslim Emir Zack Chesser who plead guilty to Material Support for similar dissemination and advocacy for al-Qaeda.
I put them at zero/zilch/nada unless his lawyer feels he's gotten a sympathetic liberal judge. Its clear he agreed with al-Qaeda, tried to join the Jihad and wrote many times in support of al-Qaeda and its war against the United States.

Imperial Good News: Mullah Omar is Dead! (Bumped-Updated)
******Bumped because it's hilarious!-scroll down for newer posts******[SH]
Or maybe not.
I received this email from the official Taliban spokesman this AM.
Statement of the Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Regarding the Martyrdom of the Most Excellent Amir ul MomineenPersonally I thought they just sent it to me to rub it in that they have recovered their website.
Among the believers, there are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah. Some fulfilled their vow by death and some are still awaiting and they have not changed in the least. (S:33-V:23)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficial, the Most Merciful
To all the inhabitants of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and respected Muslims it is with great shock and sorrow that the news is given that the Amir of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Leader of the Taliban the Esteemed Amir ul Momineen Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid on the 15th day of July in the current year 2011, passed away after an illness of the heart. To Allah (SwT) we belong and to Him is our return.
But Michelle Malkin is reporting that the Taliban later denied their own press release, claiming phone hacking by US intelligence.
KABUL: Two Taliban spokesmen said their mobile phones had been hacked and false text messages sent out on Wednesday reporting the death of the movement’s supreme leader Mullah Omar, who is still alive.Well then intelligence has hacked more than just their phones. Because I received my Mullah Omar death announcement via Qari Yousef Muhammad's Gmail.
“This is the work of American intelligence, and we will take revenge on the telephone network providers,” said spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, when contacted by Reuters to confirm the veracity of one text message.
The messages came from phone numbers used in the past by both Mujahid and a second spokesman Mohammad Qari Yousuf and said “spiritual Leader Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid has died” and “May Allah bless his soul”.
Really I fail to see a down side in this, either Mullah Omar is dead or...... the Taliban are so effing owned on the internet its not even funny.
What am I saying? Yes it is funny.
In fact I can't stop laughing..... really.
Update: It appears the Taliban have totally lost control of their website. The "fake Mullah Omar" announcement still appears on their English version of the new website which is hosted in the Netherlands.
Darn you'd have thought they'd have been safe there.
UPDATE by SH: Taliban has a new Facebook page. Don't know if it is fake too!!: facebook.com/alemarah1
See my screenshot below fold:
Updated again: It now appears the Taliban's website is totally dead. The last active URL is throwing DB errors.

Video Taliban Murder Pakistani Police
Yes this is who we are fighting in Afghanistan. I seriously doubt the claims of the Taliban, the murdered people appear to be ordinary Muslims.
The Taliban videotaped the brutal execution of more than a dozen Pakistani policemen who were captured during last month's raid in a remote area of northwestern Pakistan.Video below the fold.
The graphic video, which shows 16 Pakistani policemen who are lined up and then gunned down by Taliban fighters wielding AK-47s, was taken in early June in the Shaltalu area of the district of Dir in northwestern Pakistan, a Pakistani official and US intelligence officials who track the region told The Long War Journal. The executions were filmed after the policemen were captured during several days of heavy fighting.
....he graphic video, which was published on the LiveLeak website, begins by showing the policemen, whose hands are bound behind their backs, in a line along a hillside. A Taliban commander tells the policemen they are responsible for the execution of six Pakistani "children" in the neighboring Pakistani district of Swat. Just prior to executing the Pakistani men, the Taliban leader gives a quick speech.
"These are the enemies of Islam who originated from Pakistan," says the Taliban commander, who is masked and has not been identified, according to a translation of the statement received by The Long War Journal. He describes the men as "murtards," or those who have abandoned Islam.
Strongest possible graphic warning, if you are under 18 do not proceed.
DO NOT PROCEED.

Pakistan's Main Export to India: Indian Domestic Terrorism
Relevant given the recent second bombing of Mumbai.
Urban terrorism in India has become synonymous with a group calling itself Indian Mujahedeen (IM) that claimed responsibility for at least four blasts this year. Added to its attacks in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, and New Delhi, the latest target seems to be Mumbai on July 13.Hat Tip: Insty.
Police believe that improvised explosive devices (IED) were used to trigger the blasts which coincided with the birthday of Ajmal Kasab, the lone Pakistani gunman in the 2008 Mumbai attack, an operation for which he has been sentenced to death. The latest terror attack, which claimed about 20 lives, comes only hours after two other suspected Indian Mujahedeen operatives, who provided vehicles used in the 2008 serial blasts in Gujarat that killed 56 people, were arrested in a Mumbai suburb by the Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad (ATS).
Indian analysts believe that the IM emerged from militant elements in the Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) supported by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul-Jihad-Islami (HUJI-B). SIMI and IM endorse the goals of Osama bin Laden and also seek to provoke an Islamist revolution by India’s Muslims. SIMI/IM has long-standing ties to global Islamist organizations, including LeT and Harkat-ul-Jihad-Islami (HUJI), as well as Pakistani intelligence agencies.
Some have suggested that IM does not exist at all as an independent group but is instead an effort by Pakistan’s external intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), to project an Indian face to the activities of Pakistan-based militant groups.
