Righteous Kill -2008- Official Trailer HD - Pacino & De Niro seek a NYPD serial killer, "Death Wish" with a Badge.

"Righteous Kill" -September 2008- Official Trailer HD click arrow above - Pacino & De Niro NYPD Serial Killer.

Starring: Robert De Niro and Al Pacino filmed in New York City as NYPD Detectives chasing down what appears to be one of their own who is a serial killer knocking off criminals ("Death Wish" with a badge).

De Niro and Pacino turn up the heat in Righteous Kill, De Niro and Pacino recreate their on screen presence as in the 1995 thriller "Heat" except this time they are both on the side of the law. Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are together again at last in tense new thriller Righteous Kill. The stars, arguably two of the most legendary actors still lighting up billboards across Hollywood, have previously featured in movies together including 1974s Godfather II and 1995s Heat.

A pair of veteran New York City police detectives are on the trail of a vigilante serial killer. After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren't. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before.

Like the original murder, the victim is a suspected criminal whose body is found accompanied by a four line poem justifying the killing. When additional crimes take place, it becomes clear the detectives are looking for a serial killer, one who targets criminals that have fallen through the cracks of the judicial system. His mission is to do what the cops can't do on their own--take the culprits off the streets for good. The similarities between the recent killings and their earlier case raise a nagging question: Did they put the wrong man behind bars?

Photos of Taliban Posing in Dead Soldier's Uniform Shock France, "It's like the Taliban coming and pissing on their coffins"

The event, French journalist Eric de Lavarène met one of the Taliban assailants who sprang a fatal trap on the men of the French 8th RPIMa August 18 last in Afghanistan. Photos of Taliban Posing in Dead Soldier's Uniform Shock France.

A picture of a Taliban fighter in the uniform of a dead French soldier (see above) drew anger in France yesterday as the army came under new fire over its conduct in an ambush that killed ten paratroopers in Afghanistan last month and then the Taliban were photographed posing with their French trophies from the battle, east of Kabul, on August 18.

These included Famas assault rifles, helmets, body armour, walkie-talkies and a wristwatch that the Taliban asked the magazine to return to the family of the soldier who had owned it.

A Taliban commander identified as Faruki told Match reporters that the insurgents would kill all the French in Afghanistan unless they pulled out of the Nato operation there.

The Taliban are a sub-human race of Islamic terrorists who fit right in with Al-Qaeda and bin-Laden, during the 1980's when the Russians were in Afghanistan, captured Russian soldiers were put into ovens and baked alive. "In late 2001 Taliban soldiers on the backs of the pick-up trucks began machine-gunning the morning crowds in the small village of Dasti Qala. They felled soldiers and pensioners, shopkeepers and packs of schoolchildren. In minutes the pavements were awash with blood. Even the dogs and cats were targeted in the killing spree".... US soldiers and Marines in current Afghanistan are forewarned to be not taken alive... see "Taliban torture and kill French Nato soldiers in Afghanistan", "Four French paratroopers were taken prisoner and are feared to have been tortured to death".

Emotion over the report was sharpened by harrowing new accounts of bungling by French and Nato forces in the bloodiest engagement by French troops for over two decades. "We are sickened," a soldier at the French base at Kabul, said of the photographs. "After killing our mates it's like the Taliban coming and pissing on their coffins," the unnamed private told Europe 1 radio.

HervĂ© Morin, the Defence Minister, said that Match was advertising for the enemy. "The Taliban are waging a war of communication with this kind of operation. They have understood that public opinion is probably the Achilles’ heel of the international community that is in Afghanistan,” he said.

Joel le Pahun, the father of one of the dead soldiers, called the photographs pitiful. "It hurts a lot to see these murderers parading with the clothes of the kids that they have killed," he said. Eric de Lavarene, the journalist who interviewed the Taliban, denied being used by them. The Taliban account was legitimate news, he said. “No one talks of propaganda when we work embedded with Nato troops, yet information is always very tightly controlled on those occasions,” he said.

The shock of the pictures compounded anxiety over France's involvement in Afghanistan. The ambush, which took place after President Sarkozy committed 700 new troops to the fighting, sharpened public opposition and misgivings in his own centre-right party towards the French engagement. Several parents of dead soldiers have blamed Mr Sarkozy on television for the deaths of their sons. Senior military officers have been publicly critical of the war.

Commanders are expected to be disciplined over errors that led to the deaths of the ten men and and the wounding of 23 others on the mountainside at Uzbeen, 30 miles from Kabul. Le Monde newspaper reported today that a Gendarmerie investigation had found that if took three hours for reinforcements to reach the French troops after they were pinned down.

Commanders are also being criticised for failing to carry out reconnaissance before sending a column into a dangerous area. The lack of helicopter support and other air support was also a handicap. "We were under the ridge and we felt that we had been left alone and that we had been f***ed," one of the survivors told Le Monde. Several of the soldiers died of their wounds after being left untended for hours on the hillside, it said.

Abu Mansuur( may Allah preserve him) have told that this plan will continue until the 6 of Shawaal, which is the month coming after the blessed month of Ramadan, and he said that on between these two months they will operate continuous, insha allah.The beginning of this plan was this morning, when the Mujahideen of Al-Shabaab strongly targeted the Presidential Palace and other targets with caused great damages for the enemy. About the attack today Abu Mansuur said that the enemy was defeated and they suffered great casualties, and they have also captured the leader of the army, and at the same time they took over weapons and other military equipments. The Sheikh asked Allah(sw) to heal those mujahideen who were injured and to accept those who were martyred as martyrs.
Speaking in a press conference by phone, Robow told reporters that his group would intensify their attacks on Somali government forces and Ethiopian troops during the holy month of Ramadan which started three days ago "We will increase our attacks on the enemy of Allah during this holy month because we are fighting in the way of Allah and we will go to heaven should anyone of us die," Robow said.

The Al-Shabaab Islamist movement has been opposed to the agreement signed between the Somali government and a faction of the opposition coalition, the Alliance for the Reliberation of Somalia (ARS) in Djibouti in June.

Actor Jon Voight caused a stir at the convention when he accused the media of orchestrating the controversy surrounding Palin's daughter. "You have the ability to make it a distraction," Voight told several reporters. "I say let's put our attention on this kid with love and not make this trauma worse than it is."

American Patriot, Jon Voight went on to draw parallels between the attacks on the USA in the 60's by Anti-American "forces" of the Left and the assassination of JFK, MLK and RFK and how the Left Wing Liberals of the 60's and those of today in the streets of St. Paul MN are one and the same, anarchists that seek the destruction of the USA.

Palestinian Sirhan Bishara Sirhan shot RFK to death, between college and law school, Kennedy was a correspondent for the Boston Post in Palestine during Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Had he visited Jerusalem's Musrara district, he might have met the 4-year-old Sirhan. The war drove Sirhan's family into the Jordanian-occupied Old City of Jerusalem. The child was deeply affected by the war. He grew up with a bitter hatred of Israel and Zionists. The Sirhans were Christian Arabs. An American church sponsored their immigration to the United States in 1957. They settled in Pasadena CA. After graduating from John Muir High School, Sirhan enrolled in Pasadena Community College. He was expelled in 1964 for poor attendance and grades. For the next several years, he drifted from job to job. He wanted riches and respect but lacked the patience, perseverance and talent to achieve them. He began drinking and exploring mysticism and occult philosophies like Rosicrucianism and Theosophy. He practiced self-hypnosis and tried to move objects with his mind. Sirhan blamed America for his lack of success and hated the country for its support of Israel. His anger gradually fixed on Robert Kennedy, who promised to send 50 fighter jets to Israel if elected president. He wrote in his notebook: "Kennedy must die by June 5th" -- the first anniversary of the Six-Day War.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Protesters attacked delegates, smashed windows, punctured car tires and threw bottles Monday, a violent counterpoint to an otherwise peaceful anti-war march at the Republican National Convention. Police wielding pepper spray arrested at least 56 people, of a self-described anarchist group called the RNC Welcoming Committee.

Palin, who is in St. Paul but has so far shied away from the media spotlight, was scheduled to address the convention Wednesday in a speech intended to acquaint her with the rest of the nation. Former Democrat turned independent Joe Lieberman and TV star and former senator Fred Thompson also spoke.
Thompson reinforced McCain's image as a maverick unafraid of standing by his principles in the face of adversity.

"The same character that marked John McCain's military career has also marked his political career ... McCain is not intimidated by what the polls say or by what is politically safe or popular," he said, before delegates erupted into cheers of "USA! USA!"

The crowd's loudest reaction of the night came when Thompson said the United States needs a president who doesn't believe that the protection of the unborn is above his pay grade - a thinly veiled swipe at Barack Obama.

Obama supports abortion rights, while McCain opposes them. In his speech to the convention, Lieberman added: "We are a nation at war. We need a president we can count on to fight for what's right for our country - not only when it is easy, but when it is hard."

Other notes in Siddiqui’s possession referred to the construction of "dirty bombs," and discussed various ways to attack "enemies," including by destroying reconnaissance drones, using underwater bombs, and using gliders.

Aafia Siddiqui also possessed a computer thumb drive that contained correspondence referring to specific "cells," "attacks" by certain "cells," and "enemies." Other documents on the thumb drive discussed recruitment and training, SEE VIDEO CLICK HERE.

Terrorist Majid Khan appears to have met with Aafia Saddiqui who is a MIT grad in microbiology, she had access to Anthrax while working at Brandeis Univ in Boston. Assistant United States Attorney Eric Bruce claimed that MIT graduate Aafia Siddiqui was willing to help with an anthrax attack. Eric Bruce repeatedly referred to a planned chemical attack by Majid Khan but never described the plot or when and where it would occur. He said a woman affiliated with al-Qaida opened a Maryland post office box in the names of herself and Majid Khan so immigration documents could be sent there.

Bruce said the woman (Aafia Siddiqui), if asked, would "help carry out a deadly Anthrax attack against the United States." Her whereabouts were unknown at that time. But it was the only mention of Anthrax in his opening statements and the prosecutor never said whether Anthrax was part of Majid Khan's plot. Aafia Siddiqui rented P.O. Box #187XX Baltimore MD 21206 for Majid Khan while he was in Pakistan meeting with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Al Qaeda facilitator Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali , otherwise known as Ammar al-Baluchi, states that he ordered Aafia Siddiqui to help get travel documents for Majid Khan who intended to blow up gas stations and bridges and poison reservoirs in the United States. His (Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali) biography also states that he married Siddiqui shortly before his capture which sheds light on Aafia Siddiqui's relationship to top Al Qaeda planners like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is Ammar al-Baluchi's uncle.

The Director of National Intelligence asserted that Majid Khan, currently held at Guantanamo Bay, "had links to al-Qa'ida operatives and facilitators, most notably, Aafia Siddique, a US-educated neuro-scientist and al-Qa'ida facilitator, who assisted Majid with documents to hide his travel to Pakistan from US authorities to reenter the United States." Aafia Siddiqui rented P.O. Box #187XX Baltimore MD 21206 for Majid Khan while he was in Pakistan meeting with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Al Qaeda facilitator Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali , otherwise known as Ammar al-Baluchi, states that he ordered Aafia Siddiqui to help get travel documents for Majid Khan who intended to blow up gas stations and bridges and poison reservoirs in the United States.

Aafia Siddiqui is charged in the Indictment with: (1) one count of attempting to kill United States nationals outside the United States; (2) one count of attempting to kill United States officers and employees; (3) one count of armed assault of United States officers and employees; (4) one count of using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence; and (5) three counts of assault of United States officers and employees. If convicted, Siddqiui faces a maximum sentence of: 20 years in prison on each of the attempted murder and armed assault charges; life in prison on the firearm charge; and eight years in prison on each of the remaining assault charges.

Egyptian tycoon Hisham Talaat Mustafa ARRESTED for Sexy Suzanne Tamim Murder in Dubai

"Egyptian tycoon Hisham Talaat Mustafa ARRESTED for Sexy Suzanne Tamim Murder in Dubai, click arrow above to see one of her last videos"

Published Date: September 03, 2008 CAIRO: Egyptian tycoon Hesham Talaat Mustafa was charged yesterday with paying two million dollars for the brutal killing of Lebanese pop singer Suzanne Tamim, reportedly his one-time lover.

Mustafa was arrested and charged with ordering the murder of Tamim at her upmarket flat in Dubai in July, Egyptian prosecutor Abdel Meguid Mahmud said in a statement carried by the official MENA news agency. Tamim, 30, who rose to fame after winning a Lebanese talent show in 1996 but recently had disappeared from the public eye, was stabbed several times and her throat cut, allegedly by a retired policemen paid by Mustafa.

See Prior post; Tuesday, September 02, 2008, Egyptian property mogul, Hisham Talaat Mustafa arrested in Sexy Suzanne Tamim murder in Dubai, the Egyptian Tycoon hired a hitman




The indictment charges former police officer Muhsen El-Sukkari with killing Tamim on July 28 in return for $2 million from the businessman.Egyptian media reports have said that Sukkari worked as a security officer at the Four Seasons Hotel in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, which Talaat Moustafa built.

The indictment says Moustafa "took part through incitement, agreement and assistance with the first defendant (Sukkari) in killing the victim in revenge". "He provided him with special information and amounts of money necessary to plan and carry out the crime," it said. The upper house of parliament has stripped Moustafa of the legal immunity which he enjoyed as a member, it added. The businessman is a member of the ruling National Democratic Party, which is led by President Hosni Mubarak.

Stabbed to death; Sukkari went to Tamim's apartment in Dubai on July 28 and gained access by pretending to be a representative of the company which owns the building, bringing a present and a letter of thanks from the company, the indictment said. "He then laid into her with the knife ... cutting her main arteries and her trachea," it added. "This was on the instigation of the second defendant in return for obtaining from him the sum of $2 million for committing this crime," it said. Beyond the reference to "revenge", the indictment did not speculate on Moustafa's motives for his acts.

Mohamed Fouad, managing director of Global Capital, said the indictment was likely to hit the whole Egyptian market. "This will have a very serious negative effect on the company, the sector and the market," he said.He (Hesham Talaat Moustafa) is not just anybody. He is the head of one of the biggest companies in Egypt, one which is highly dependent on his presence," he said. The scope of the effect will not be clear before we know how solid the financial situation of the company is and to what extent it can survive the possibility of him being convicted.

Tamim, who was 30, rose to fame after winning the top prize in a television show in 1996. She married Lebanese impresario and producer Adel Matouk, who became her manager, but they later had an acrimonious divorce, media reports said.

Egyptian property mogul, Hisham Talaat Mustafa arrested in Sexy Suzanne Tamim murder in Dubai, the Egyptian Tycoon hired a hitman.

Egyptian property mogul, Hisham Talaat Mustafa, arrested in Sexy Suzanne Tamim murder in Dubai, the Egyptian Tycoon hired a hitman. September 02. 2008 11:24PM UAE. Hisham Talaat Mustafa was arrested and charged with paying US$2 million for killing Lebanese pop singer Suzanne Tamim in Dubai.

DUBAI; An Egyptian tycoon with ties to the Egyptian government was arrested yesterday with ordering the contract killing of the Lebanese singer Suzanne Tamim in her Dubai flat in July. Hisham Talaat Mustafa, the chairman of the board of Egypt’s largest publicly traded real estate company, was charged with ordering and paying for the killing, according to Abdel Meguid Mahmoud, an Egyptian prosecutor.
Egyptian prosecutors had banned media reports on the case, which has caused intense interest in Egypt and further afield. The state news agency said Mr Moustafa had now been stripped of his parliamentary immunity. He could face the death penalty if convicted. Egyptian media has reported that Ms Tamim had a three-year relationship with Mr Moustafa which ended several months ago, the affair existed while Suzan Tamim was married to Adel Ma’touk and involved with a London UK kickboxer.

The Egyptian state agency MENA reported that Mustafa, whose company is worth several billion dollars, is being held pending trial. Mustafa, a stalwart of the ruling National Democratic Party, is also a member of the Shura Council, Egypt’s upper house of parliament.

Mr Mahmoud also confirmed that a retired Egyptian policeman, Mohsen el Sokari, had been charged with carrying out the murder. He was allegedly paid US$2 million (Dh7.345m) to kill the singer. Mr Mahmoud said Mustafa was accused of providing Sokari with “all the needed money for planning and executing the crime”, and with helping him obtain visas to the UK and the UAE as he pursued Tamim.

Mr Mahmoud said he had contacted the Shura Council to allow police to charge Mustafa. Following a request from the prosecutor, the Shura speaker, Satwaf Sherif, stripped Mustafa of the immunity from prosecution accorded all members of the legislature. Talaat Mustafa Group also said it had appointed his brother, Tarek Talaat Mustafa, in his place. “The decision comes after a meeting of the board which took place today [Tuesday] and was unanimously approved,” it said. Last month, copies of the Egyptian newspaper Al-Dustur were withdrawn from sale after it reported that “an important Egyptian figure” who was “highly influential” was allegedly involved in Tamim’s murder.

Mr Mahmoud later referred the newspaper’s managing editor to public prosecutors for breaking a ban on reporting the case. Ms Tamim, 31, was found dead in the living room of her flat at the Jumeirah Beach Residence on July 28, hours after a late-night gathering in her apartment. She suffered several knife wounds to her face and body, but was not decapitated, contrary to some reports at the time.Last month, a day after it was confirmed that the investigation into the murder was closed, police said they had arrested the man suspected of stabbing Tamim to death.

After launching her singing career in 1996, Tamim became as well known for her private life as for her singing.In 2005, she was questioned by Interpol in Egypt over claims that she stole US$350,000 (Dh1.28 million) from her estranged husband. She also faced allegations in Egypt of being involved in a heroin smuggling ring with her father, and was also accused, with her father and an Egyptian businessman, of trying to murder her then-husband.
Shares in Mustafa’s company, Talaat Mustafa Group, which were trading for 11 Egyptian pounds (Dh7.5) in November, were down sharply to 4.99 pounds on the Egyptian Stock Exchange yesterday.

From initially reading the Arrest Affidavit and OCSD interview of Casey Anthony it struck me immediately that Casey Anthony was not being truthful with the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) in the whereabouts of her then 2 yr old daughter Caylee. No mother of a small child losses track of her daughter for almost 30 days and then tells the OCSD (after Cindy Anthony forced a 911 phone call from Casey) she had been looking for the supposed babysitter (that did not exist) in a series of Orlando bars and clubs, pure nonsense and what is more pure nonsense is that the parents of Casey Anthony, Cindy and George, believe Casey, and had no problem with Caylee going "missing" for almost 30 days, when Casey, Caylee, Cindy and George Anthony all live in the same house ?

I work on facts and I have gone through all the documents made public by the OCSD and Casey Anthony appears to be a pathological liar and most likely a sociopath, as was pointed out in OCSD interviews about her missing daughter Caylee, as she shows no emotion.

There is a very big problem here, the 2 yr old daughter Caylee is confirmed dead by the OCSD, the grandmother Cindy is still appealing for search teams to find Caylee, alive. The Bounty Hunter, Leonard Padilla, who came to town to solve the case (without reading the arrest report or OCSD interviews available on-line) is pulling up stakes and heading home with his nephew Tony Padilla pulling the $500,000 Casey Anthony bond from Al Estes in Clearwater Fl and Casey Anthony was re-arrested on fraud charges by the OCSD.

One giant circus in Orlando revolving around the loss of a beautiful little 2 years old girl and a series of incredible lies that the Anthony family is still putting out to protect Casey, what a waste, and then there is the very possible "Made for TV Movie Deal" that is the reason for all of this circus atmosphere with the "Bounty Hunters" from California riding in. Several people from the California bail bonds company helped Anthony post bond, saying she might be more likely to talk about her daughter's disappearance if she were released from jail. But a bounty hunter with the California company said Friday 8/29/08 he no longer believes the girl is alive. "Absolutely not," Leonard Padilla said. Clearwater-based bondsman Albert Estes, who shares the same surety group as Padilla's company and helped post Anthony's bond, did not immediately return a phone message. Anthony family spokesman Larry Garrison called the re-arrest on fraud charge a "three-ring circus."

UPDATE Monday 9/01/08...The mother of a missing Florida girl is back in jail after she was arrested on charges of check fraud and theft charges and a California bounty hunter withdrew his $500,200 bond for Casey Anthony on her original child endangerment charges. Tony Padilla said he surrendered the bond due to new evidence and "heightened security concerns."
UPDATE Friday 9/05/08...ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Casey Anthony is expected to be released from jail Friday morning for the second time in two weeks. Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla helped Casey get out of jail the first time, but Eyewitness News was told that this time the person who posted her bond wants to stay anonymous. Two bond agencies Macdonald Bail Bonds and Miller Bail Bonds, both out of Kissimmee worked together to post the $500,000 bond. A press release fax came in on9(/04/08 from "Press Corps Media Plus" (615) 254-1400, e-mail , stating that the lawyer for Casey Anthony will not reveal who paid the $50,000 cash to post the second $500,000 bail bond.

The "black" back story here is the involvement Leonard Padilla, who hosts a TV show called "Bounty Hunters" on National Geographic, who told Local 6 News in mid August 2008 that he has been talking to Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, about bailing his client out of jail. Leonard Padilla told Local 6 News that his nephew, Tony Padilla, a bail agent, traveling to Texas and made arrangements with a company to secure the entire $500,000 bond, since gone over to Al Estes Bail bonds in Clearwater, and since recinded and Casey Anthony went back to jail.

August 22, 2008 A note to our viewers:--> Erroneous news reports have claimed that Mr. Padilla is currently working with NGC, and that our network is in some way involved in Mr. Padilla’s efforts involving Caylee Anthony. These reports were wrong, and have since been corrected. We want to assure you that NGC is not producing any new programs with Mr. Padilla and he is not currently working with National Geographic Channel or the National Geographic Society in any way.

NGC dumped Padilla and his Bounty Hunters show on cable TV, they are distancing themselves from Mr. Padilla as fast as they can, so who financed Leonard Padilla's trip to Florida and his involvement in the Casey Anthony 3 ring circus ?....... Larry Garrison of Silver Creek entertainment sure is a likely candidate as he set up shop in the Anthony home prior to Casey Anthony's release. Was this all over getting Casey Anthony interviews for a TV Movie after Casey bailed out of jail by the Padilla's ?

Leonard Padilla said he bailed Casey Anthony out to find out the truth about Caylee, after out on bond Casey Anthony never spoke to Leonard Padilla. The bail-bond company, Tony Padilla Bail Bonds CA" is affiliated with Texas-based Financial Surety, which is licensed in Florida -- making it legal for the West Coast company to put up funds for Anthony's release.

Anthony's lead attorney, Jose Baez,
and a third party contacted the company about arranging a bond, Padilla said. Baez could not be reached for comment about the first bond of $500,000 and will not make any comments on who posted the 2nd $500,000 bond, both bonds required $50,000 cash up front and there is no way Leonard padilla paid the first $50,000, so who has laid out a total of $100,000 in cash to keep Casey Anthony out of jail ?

The Padilla's announced the move (or is that movie) in an e-mail to Local 6 News Orlando. The e-mail stated: "On Sunday, August 17, World Famous Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla and his nephew Tony Padilla, owner of Tony Padilla Bail Bonds of Sacramento, CA., will be traveling to Orlando with two of Leonard Padilla's associates. Tony Padilla will be posting a $500,000.00 bond for the release of Casey Anthony (who paid the $50,000 cash up front)."

Anthony Family Appoints Spokesman; Also on Friday, the family of Caylee Anthony appointed a spokesman known for his work on other high-profile cases. Larry Garrison will now be answering questions from the media, Cindy Anthony said. Larry Garrison, president of production company Silver Creek Entertainment, co-authored a book on the disappearance of missing Alabama teenager Natalie Holloway. Garrison was also a spokesman for the family of "Nut-job" John Mark Karr, the man who gained notoriety for falsely confessing to the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey.

Note; on Larry Garrison's Silver Creek Entertainment website the feature on the "Press Release" page is none other than Casey Anthony
Click Here...

Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla is from Sacramento CA, Movie producer Larry Garrison is based out of Lake Sherwood, CA.

Larry Garrison goes in for the lurid stories i.e. "THE TRUE LIFE STORY OF CHRISTINA SCHEIER, LEEBONNY BAKLEY AND ROBERT BLAKE" and Larry Garrison To be Interviewed on Larry King Live … his book 'The Newsbreaker", Jon Benet Ramsey and John Karr, get the picture ?
What it all comes down to is who put up the $50,000 cash to the Al-Estes Bail Bond of Clearwater Fl to secure the $500,000 bail bond that got Casey Anthony out of jail for a brief time ? Al Estes Bail Bonds is in the business to make money, they would never front the $50,000 cash for a bail bond on Casey Anthony which now has been turned in by Al Estes Bail Bonds.
In the Casey Anthony case Al-Estes Bail Bond of Clearwater took $50,000 on the $500.000 bail bond that was not refundable, some one lost big, $50,000, but someone might be making big on the other end.....
UPDATE 9/06/08.. Casey's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, provided part of the $50,000 needed to secure her $500,000 bond on a child neglect charge and an anonymous donor put up the rest. Casey's attorney, Jose Baez refused to comment on the bond being posted, but his public relations firm put out a statement Thursday evening. "The individual posting the bond prefers to remain anonymous and is doing it because of the belief that Ms. Anthony's constitutional rights have been grossly violated," the statement reads (read full statement).
Press Corps Media, a group claiming to help Jose Baez with media requests told Eyewitness News national organizations and a dozen individuals who support Casey came forward to help. A Press Corps Media representative told Eyewitness News they have additional money set aside to post another bond if Casey is re-arrested and put back in jail. Todd Black said, “No media outlet paid to get her out… No production company paid to get her out… I cannot discuss organizations or individuals we are in contact with regarding bail." Press Corps Media said the groups were required to sign confidentiality agreements.

So who signed the
movie deal at the Anthony house, who is profiting from this horrible story and who paid the "Tony Padilla Bail Bonds Co/ Al Estes Bail bonds" the $50,000 cash down to cover the first $500,000 bond AND on September 4th 2008 who paid the $50,000 cash AGAIN as two local Orlando Bail bond firms re-posted the $500,000 bond on Casey Anthony after the Padill Bail bonds pulled out of the first deal , gee I wonder, money talks, could it possibly be the movie producer Larry Garrison who set up shop inside the Anthony home just before Casey Anthony made bail the first time ?

LOS ANGELES FBI examining firm of woman fatally slashed in Century City garage; Bullion companies owned by slain Camarillo woman and her estranged husband were focus of inquiry before the slaying and linked to Abdul Tawala ibn Ali Alishtari. By Catherine Saillant,, Richard Winton and Andrew Blankstein, Los Angeles Times Staff Writers August 1, 2008. Detectives investigating the stabbing death of a woman in a Century City high-rise parking garage earlier this week are looking for possible links to an ongoing FBI fraud inquiry of the international gold trading company that she and her estranged husband owned, law enforcement officials said. The FBI examination of Goldfinger Coin & Bullion Sales and an associated Internet firm, e-Bullion, was underway before the killing, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the murder investigation was ongoing. On Monday evening, a man with a knife killed 45-year-old Camarillo resident Pamela Fayed in the garage of the high-rise where she had been visiting a lawyer, investigators said. Among Goldfinger's customers was a man later accused of funding terrorist organizations and defrauding investors, according to court documents. Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari was indicted last year in New York (and links to the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY) and is awaiting trial on charges of funneling money through a Goldfinger account in Los Angeles several years ago as part of the fraud scheme, according to federal prosecutors and securities regulators. The hitman, by using a knife to slaughter Pamela Fayed, was sending a message to any other potential Cooperating Witnesses (CW) in the Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari case.

Omar Bakri Mohammed, co-founded the British branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir in 1986,(and links to the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY) By Adrian Morgan; Bakri Mohammed gave a revealing interview to the Jamestown Foundation in March 2004. Bakri said he had been actively involved in the Muslim Brotherhood from age 15 to 17 in his native Syria, and then joined Hizb ut-Tahrir in Lebanon.. In 1979 he went to Egypt for six months, before going to Saudi Arabia where he established a branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), which by 1983 had 38 members. In 1983, HT in Kuwait expelled him from the group, but he continued to operate a group which called itself "Al Muhajiroun".

Bakri arrived in Britain and was approached by the German head of Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) who persuaded him to rejoin HT. He co-founded a British branch of HT in 1986 but this was, he claimed, not part of the official structure of international HT. Bakri stated that he had left HT UK voluntarily on January 16, 1996. It would be a month later that he would form his own group, which he called Al Muhajiroun. The original emir of Hizb-ut-Tahir America (HTA), Iyad Hilal, is a US citizen of Palestinian-Jordanian origin, he was also the Imam at the Masjid Al-Fatima in Queens NY-(VIDEO). He is the author of several books - "Studies in Usul ul-Fiqh". This treatise on Islamic jurisprudence can be found online in an edited version. This book is a required part of course material in the Fiqh course at the Qatar-based Islamic Studies Academy.

In August 2005 Stratfor stated that Hilal had been in the US for 20 years. He had been involved in HT since his youth. Hilal would travel between Orange County in California and New York's Masjid al-Fatima (Aqeel Khan founder) from the 1980s onward while he was establishing the group. HT had offices in these locations between 1991 to 1995. Iyad Hilal was imam of a Mosque in New York, the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY, founded by Aqeel Khan who also acted as the president of the Mosque.

By 1995, the HT chapter at the Masjid al-Fatima New York lost members in rows over ideology and leadership. Stratfor states that by 2000 many members of the New York branch at the Masjid al-Fatima had defected to Omar Bakri's more radical group Al Muhajiroun at the same Mosque.

BBC journalist Richard Watson stated in a recent report (video) that at the end of the 1990s, Omar Bakri Mohammed wanted to expand into the US at the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY. The information on what had happened in New Yorks HT chapter was made more clear by private investigator Bill Warner. In 2005 Bill Warner had taken BBC reporter Richard Watson to the Masjid al-Fatima on 37th Avenue, Woodside in Queens. Here, the BBC filmed Aqeel Khan (video), the founder and secretary of the Queens Islamic Center at the mosque, while Bill Warner interviewed him (see photo above). During the mid 1990s, the mosque had been infiltrated by radical members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, much as they had tried to take over the Croydon mosque in London.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Wednesday, August 24, 2005 - The FBI has launched an inquiry into the activities of a grocery store owner, Iyad Hilal, who is allegedly the U.S. leader of a radical Islamic group banned in parts of Europe and the Middle East, authorities said. Iyad Hilal, an Islamic author and philosopher who owns an Orange County market (he was also the Imam at the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY), hasn't drawn much attention to his writings or his role in the group, Hizb ut-Tahrir, which means Party of Liberation. But since the July 7 bombings in London, British Prime Minister Tony Blair banned the group (HT) there... FBI Investigation into Iyad Hilal and HT began in 2005 and appears to be ongoing. Aqeel Khan the founder and president of the Masjid al-Fatima (VIDEO) said: "They (HT) had their own programs, which were not the directions of the mosque... There were five times (a day) prayer, but then they had their own meetings here and we - the general public - were not invited." The Hizb ut-Tahrir members were officially ousted from the Queens mosque after $400,000 went missing from the masjid funds, but they continued to frequent the mosque. It appears to be at this mosque, where radical Hizb members already worshipped, that Al Muhajiroun developed its first US presence.

The ideology of Hizb was similar to that of Bakris Al Muhajiroun, but the latter groups direct methods appealed to young radicals. Individuals such as Syed "Fahad" Hashmi from Flushing, Queens, had became involved in Al Muhajiroun. Hashmi, who formerly belonged to the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is thought to have introduced Mohammed Junaid Babar to Al Muhajiroun. Babar had been a student at St Johns University. Both attended the Masjid al-Fatima in Queens NY (VIDEO).

In 2004, Junaid Babar was convicted of setting up a terror training camp in Malakand, Pakistan, and assisting Al Qaeda. One of the individuals that attended this camp was Mohammed Sidique Khan, leader of the cell that killed 52 people in London on July 7, 2005. Babar gave evidence at the "Operation Crevice" trial: on April 30, 2007, five British individuals from Al Muhajiroun were given life sentences for plotting terror attacks in the UK. After the convictions, it was revealed that Omar Khyam, the leader of the Operation Crevice cell, had met and discussed jihad operations with Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, another 7/7 bomber, on several occasions in 2004. Their meetings had been monitored by MI5.

Al Muhajiroun was officially disbanded by Omar Bakri Mohammed in October 2004 (this was ploy for the media). Using a tactic employed by HT, he continued to guide his followers who then belonged to new groups, operating under new names. In the UK, Al Muhajiroun members operated in groups called Al Ghurabaa, the Saviour Sect, (which changed its name to the Saved Sect) and these also founded a group called Ahlus Sunna Wal Jammah. Members of the US Al Muhajiroun group reformed as the Islamic Thinkers Society.

With its membership plundered by Al Muhajirouns more radical sect, the US branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir appeared to be in poor shape. Iyad Halil, a greengrocer by trade, had gone back to Orange County (FBI Investigation). Hizb continues to operate in North America, but its profile until recently has been low. Hizb ut-Tahrir frequently mounts anti-US demonstrations. In Britain, HT has 10,000 active members.

HT, regarding itself as an intellectual movement, is keen to indoctrinate its recruits in the intricacies of Islamic law and thought before they can reach positions of influence. According to a report by Madeleine Gruen of Columbia Universitys School of International and Public Affairs, because HT America members "have been raised on a steady diet of pop culture, they are endowed with the unique ability of being able to export HT and jihadist ideology to a world that dislikes America but loves its entertainment industry." She noted that after 2003, "public mention of HT in the US became scarce."

In a report Gruen explains that while Iyad Halil had operated in Orange County and NYC, another leader called Mohammed Malkawi set up operations in Chicago and Wisconsin. Malkawi, of Palestinian-Jordanian origin, had been a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin. He had recruited Naveed Butt, who is the spokesman of Pakistan HT, into the group when they had both worked for Motorola. Mohammed Malkawi has written on high-speed software architecture. His video lectures can be found on YouTube.

The arguments on banning or accepting HT are still current. The group has openly allowed anti-Semitic literature to be published. It was on account of its anti-Semitic attitudes that the group became outlawed in 2003 in Germany. In Denmark (and in the UK), HT is legal, but it has come into conflict with the authorities. In March and April 2002, HT Denmark was responsible for distributing copies of a leaflet in a Copenhagen square which, according to the BBC: "makes threats against Jews, using a quote from the Koran urging Muslims to kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have been turned you out. The leaflet also said, The Jews are a people of slander...a treacherous people... they fabricate lies and twist words from their right context. And the leaflet describes suicide bombings in Israel as "legitimate" acts of "Martyrdom"."

Five years ago, most Western observers did not consider Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HT) much of a threat—its goal of overthrowing governments in order to replace them with a caliph who would implement Sharia law seemed unrealistic and unlikely to resonate with Muslims raised in the West. Even though HT did manage to exploit political circumstances to gain a foothold in certain regions, such as in Central Asia, overall it was perceived as stagnant. During the last five years, however, turbulent world events and the changing tide of public opinion toward the United States has given HT a framework to advance its agenda. Five years ago, scholars estimated HT had a presence in approximately 40 countries.

Hizb-ut-Tahrir America (HTA) is enjoying a similar pattern of progress.In its first 13 years of development, HTA was perceived as being too small and ineffective to present any kind of serious threat (Orange County Register, August 25, 2005). Its founders, most of whom immigrated to the United States from the Middle East as adults in the early 1980s, had a hard time overcoming cultural differences with their young American target audience, and they were sometimes unable to compete with other extremist groups with more money, more aggressive strategies and better established operations.

Chief among them were Palestinian-Jordanian Iyad Hilal, an Orange County, California-based grocer Iyad Hilal, who was most actively engaged in HTA's development from the late 1980s to the beginning of 2000, and Mohammed Malkawi, a computer engineer based in the Chicago area (Spotlight on Terror, March 23, 2004). Both had been long-time members of HT in their home countries. Hilal and his associates initiated HT activities in New York at the Masjid Al-Fatima Mosque in Queens NY (Aqeel Khan founder and president) and in Orange County simultaneously, while Malkawi and his associates established party roots in Wisconsin and Chicago.

Turf battles have been an ongoing issue throughout HTA's development. Sometimes HTA wins control over the mosque, Islamic community center, or student association it has set its sights on, other times it has been stymied by its inability to compete for recruits with better-funded organizations that have had a long-term presence in the United States, such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hilal's first base of operations, the Islamic Society of Orange County, was rife with conflict between extremist factions vying for control over the mosque, including associates of al-Qaeda (Adam Gadahn and Khalil Deek).

Hilal did have better luck in Queens, New York, where his counterparts took over a small, out-of-the-way storefront mosque, Masjid al-Fatima (Aqeel Khan founder and president), which was used as a base for their front operation, group meetings, conferences and editorial offices of their HT primer, thinly disguised as a news magazine called Ar-Raya.

Hilal moved to his current base of operations, the Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley, in light of the ongoing impediments at the Islamic Society of Orange County. There are informal indications that Hilal continues to use his weekend classes to present HT ideology, although he denies any ongoing ties to HTA (Orange County Register, August 25, 2005).

There have been several cases of individuals passing through the HT ranks and then moving on to more militant organizations, as was the case with Tel Aviv pub bomber Omar Sharif, and Dhiren Barot aka Abu Issa al-Hindi, who plotted to attack several New York-based financial targets (New Statesman, April 24, 2006).
