ATF & MICHIGAN STATE POLICE ARREST 18 MUSLIM CONVENIENCE STORE CIGARETTE DEALERS, HUGE FRAUD SCHEME OVER $2 MIL, AGAIN.

News Release November 14, 2008. ATF, MICHIGAN STATE POLICE ARREST SEVERAL IN CIGARETTE FRAUD SCHEME. Federal Arrest and Search Warrants Served Throughout Southeast Michigan.

DETROIT — Special agents of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and investigators from the Michigan State Police (MSP) arrested 18 individuals today as part of an ongoing criminal investigation into a contraband tobacco trafficking network alleged to have defrauded the State of Michigan, said ATF Special Agent in Charge Thomas E. Brandon and MSP Colonel Peter C. Munoz.

Investigators of MSP’s Tobacco Tax Unit worked alongside ATF agents in this two-year federal investigation. More than 150 law enforcement officers from ATF, MSP, and the Dearborn and Detroit Police Departments participated in the arrests and with the service of 25 federal search warrants for documents at private residences, gas stations and convenience stores throughout southeast Michigan. Items seized from various locations searched today include: documents, firearms, suspected contraband cigarettes and more than $115,000 in U.S. currency.

“At a time when Michigan’s economy is struggling, these defendants chose to
break the law for their own personal gain by not paying the required State excise taxes on over 100,000 cartons of cigarettes. They sold the contraband cigarettes out of their businesses, pocketing over two million dollars in revenue that was due to the State of Michigan,” stated Brandon.

Those arrested for their role in the contraband cigarette trafficking scheme are:
Abdo AL-HANUMA, 46;
Jim ATTY, 56;
Salim Georges ATTY, 72;
Ali BAZZI, 36;
Farid BAZZI, 32;

Mohammed BAZZI, 33;
Nasser BAZZI, 37;
Sima Dehashti FALLAHI, 54;

Khalil Ibrahim GARMO, 59;
Abdul HEZAM, 40; Sam
Gerges JINA, 47;

Ali Salah KAHWAJI, 30;
Khaled Abdo MOZEP, 24;
MukhlisMURAD, 50;
Raghid MURAD, 36;
Najib YATOOMA, 56;
and Marawan ELTOHAMY,27.
KASSEM ALI BAZZI , 06/15/1946 (62) WHO APPEARS TO BE THE "GODFATHER" OF THE MUSLIM MAFIA GANG IN DEARBORN/DETROIT, WAS ON ACTIVE PROBATION FOR Tobacco Prod Tax Act Violtns - Felony.

All defendants were brought before U.S. Magistrate Judge Virginia M.Morgan, Eastern District of Michigan this afternoon for initial appearances on criminal complaints.

The joint investigation reveals that these individuals conspired to defraud Michigan the proceeds of cigarette taxes. Michigan requires every pack of cigarettes to carry a stamp showing that taxes have been paid. The state’s tax on cigarettes is $2 per pack, making it one of the highest state tax rates in the country. During the two-year criminal investigation, these defendants allegedly purchased approximately 104,310 cartons of contraband cigarettes, representing a tax loss to Michigan of $2,086,200.

“Cigarette trafficking cases are time-intensive, complex financial investigations that go beyond the resources of any one agency,” stated Munoz. “I commend this cooperative effort between the ATF and the MSP in aggressively pursuing contraband cigarette traffickers. This case has exposed and dismantled an organization that fraudulently diverted millions in tax revenues.”

“Tobacco diversion is a global problem and believed to be one of the largest black markets of legal commodities in the world,” stated Brandon. “In the United States alone, billions of tax dollars are lost annually due to the diversion of tobacco products.” A conviction for trafficking in contraband cigarettes carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison or a $250,000 fine, or both. In addition, state tax penalties of up to 500% of the tax evaded may be assessed, therefore, estimating additional potential fines/tax assessments of approximately $10,400,000. A complaint is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Susan E. Gillooly and Philip Ross.

Militants Turn to Small Bombs in Iraq Attacks, Sticky Bombs on the Rise for Al-Qaeda


















BAGHDAD — They are usually no bigger than a man’s fist and attached to a magnet or a strip of gummy adhesive — thus the name “obwah lasica” in Arabic, or “sticky bomb.”

Light, portable and easy to lay, sticky bombs are tucked quickly under the bumper of a car or into a chink in a blast wall. Since they are detonated remotely, they rarely harm the person who lays them. And as security in Baghdad has improved, the small and furtive bomb — though less lethal than entire cars or even thick suicide belts packed with explosive — is fast becoming the device of choice for a range of insurgent groups.

They are also contributing, in the midst of an uptick in violence, to a growing feeling of unease in the capital. “You take a bit of C4 or some other type of compound,” said Lt. Col. Steven Stover, a spokesman for the United States military in Baghdad. “You can go into a hardware store, take the explosive and combine it with an accelerant, put some glass or marble or bits of metal in front of it and you’ve basically got a homemade Claymore,” a common antipersonnel mine.

Sticky bombs are not an Iraqi innovation. “Limpet mines” were attached to the sides of ships during World War II, and magnetic booby traps were used during the conflict in Northern Ireland. Magnetic I.E.D.’s, or improvised explosive devices, were first used in Iraq in late 2004 or early in 2005, according to the American military.

According to figures from Iraq’s Interior Ministry, sticky bombs killed 3 people and wounded 18 in Baghdad alone during the month of July. In October, 9 people were killed and 46 more were injured by sticky bombs. Casualty rates caused by sticky bombs are still relatively low. But recent raids on insurgent groups have uncovered caches of the bombs, even “sticky bomb factories,” Colonel Stover said. And magnetic I.E.D.’s have recently been made an explicit part of the training that American soldiers in Baghdad receive.

“We make our soldiers aware of the latest threat, and the latest I.E.D. threat is these magnetic I.E.D.’s,” he said. “We put them in their hands and say, ‘Hey, soldier, this is what this thing looks like.’ They’re sometimes used against us — our vehicles are metallic, too.” Iraqi and United States officials acknowledge that “sticky bombs” have been an effective means of spreading terror among Iraqi urban populations but note that, paradoxically, the bombs are also a sign that terrorists are finding it harder to move freely.

Sticky bombs have frequently been used to attack Iraqi government and military officials and important businessmen. In July, Faris Amir, the deputy general director of Baghdad’s traffic police, was wounded by a sticky bomb attack. In September, an executive at Al Arabiya, the satellite channel, narrowly survived an assassination attempt by sticky bomb, which destroyed his car. In October, the lawyer Waleed al-Azzawi and the police commander of Diwaniya Province, Omar Abu Atra, were killed in Baghdad by sticky bombs.

General Jabieri said that at first “a lot of the sticky bombs came from outside Iraq and local insurgents were trained how to detonate them and attach them to cars. But we’re seeing sticky bombs produced locally in the last couple of months after increasing security measures on the border.”

Sticky bombs are usually designed so that they may be detonated by cellphone, General Jabieri said. “They ring the phone when they want to explode the bomb,” he added. “When the sticky bombs started to emerge it was easy to find them because they were usually attached under the fuel tank.” But the bombs are getting steadily smaller, General Jabieri said. Sometimes, he said, they are painted to better match the paint jobs of their victims’ cars.

"TAMPA STICKS OF FIRE", TERROR THREATS ANALYZED FOR SUPER BOWL SUNDAY FEBRUARY 1st 2009, HAVE SUIICDE BOMBERS ARRIVED WITH "MOTHER OF SATAN BOMBS ?

AHMED MOHAMED WAS READY, he came to Tampa to construct explosives to cause harm within this country !
The word "Tampa" is believed to mean sticks of fire in the language of the Calusa, a Native American tribe that once lived south of today’s Tampa Bay.

The Super Bowl XLIII , will be at Raymond James Stadium Tampa, FL on Sunday, February 1st 2009 at 6:00 PM.

TAMPA Nov 6th, 2008.. 18:07:30 GMT Critical Incident Solutions has recently assisted the Tampa, Florida, UASI and local RDSTF (Regional Domestic Security Task Force) with conducting an exercise that focused on intelligence information sharing and emergency response to acts of terrorism affecting multiple locations throughout the Tampa Bay region and surrounding counties. This effort is part of an ongoing training and preparedness program, which the Tampa Bay region is using to prepare for the Super Bowl which will be held in Tampa on Sunday 2/01/2009. Regional Domestic Security Task Force (RDSTF), the goal of the RDSTF is to provide a regional response to any Weapon of Mass Destruction or Terrorist incident that may occur within the State of Florida.

Tampa Florida has been terror central for the past 3 decades going back to 1988 with the formation of front companies for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad that solicited funds for suicide bombers in the Middle East, now have the suicide bombers have arrived in Tampa with the revelation of what convicted terrorist Ahmed Mohamed (he is Al-Qaeda) had in mind.


The prosecutor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hoffer, argues in a sentencing memorandum filed in Ahmed Mohamed's case that Youseff Megahed, a legal, permanent resident of the United States, was a "front man" who was to help Mohamed acquire firearms within the USA, in Tampa Fl (in the run up to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Fl).

Ahmed Mohamed (al-Qaeda member) was "no mere neophyte or 'arm-chair' supporter of violent jihad. He had taken steps in July 2007 to teach others how to set off remote-controlled detonations from a distance; he had engaged in extensive personal research on his laptop computer and had, in fact, manufactured on his own quantities of a potassium nitrate explosive mixture called 'MOTHER OF SATAN BOMB"; he had purchased sulfur and other products which would be useful in the manufacture of black powder and the defendant purchased, at the same time, from the same store, and during the same trip, hydrogen peroxide and acetone onyx remover (nail polish remover).

Those items are two of the primary components of the high explosive acetone peroxide (Mother of Satan Bomb); and he had sought to possess firearms unlawfully and attempted to buy them, with the apparent aim to train in their use and the possible use of concealable "Mother Of Satan Bombs" at Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Fl.

Acetone peroxide (triacetone triperoxide, peroxyacetone, TATP, TCAP) is an organic peroxide and a primary high explosive. It takes the form of a white crystalline powder with a distinctive acrid smell. It is highly susceptible to heat, friction, and shock. For its instability, it has been called the "Mother of Satan". However the instability is greatly improved by impurities. It is normally stable when pure in powder form, but it dissolves quickly (even when kept under water). It is one of the few explosives which is explosive when wet or kept underwater.

How many more "Ahmed Mohameds" are in Tampa or St. Pete or Bradenton or Sarasota getting ready for the "Big Show" the most-watched TV event of the year, with about 150 million viewers in the U.S., the Superbowl in 2009 will see Bruce Springsteen and his E-Street band perform for 230 countries, and is the biggest musical performance on the planet, outstripping Grammys, Oscars and other worldwide broadcasts. Florida is not new to the terror biz as all of the al-Qaeda 9/11 pilots trained in Florida at one time or another, big stage, big audience, big "sticks of fire" !

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Five suicide car bombers, using stolen Toyota Land Cruisers, attacked government and United Nations sites in northern Somalia on Wednesday, killing at least 21 people. The attacks shattered the rare sense of calm that had existed in a few corners of the country. The car bomb attack "warning" was posted on the Al-Shabaab website on October 17th.. 12 days before the attack - An internal document shows that Somalia's new Islamist rulers (Al-Shabaab) have decided to send suicide bombers to the neighbouring peaceful self-proclaimed state of Somaliland. Their aim is to topple the elected Hargeisa government. Witnesses said the suicide bombers were driving late model Toyota Land Cruiser SUVs (Prado) which go for approx. $38,000 each. Stolen cars shipped in from Dubai to the local used car lot, same scam as in Iraq, different country. See my prior posts on al-Qaeda using stolen vehicles for car bombs in Iraq and India. Al-Shabaab control the Port Kismayo of to receive stolen cars from Dubai.

ANOTHER SOMALI ATTACK, TOYOTA LAND CRUISER VEHICLE; MOGADISHU, Somalia (CNN) -- Somalian Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi survived a suicide vehicle bomb blast that heavily damaged his home Sunday, his spokesman said.

Thug accused of murdering NYPD Russel Timoshenko was laughing, Dexter Bostic also eyed in murder of Collin Thomas at Universal Auto World Long Island









Bostick aka Bostic



Can't imagine why thug accused of murdering Russel Timoshenko was laughing; Thankfully, Detective Herman Yan was not in the courtroom when the man accused of murdering his partner burst out laughing.
The dead cop's grief-torn parents were there, but maybe they did not realize it was Dexter Bostick who suddenly erupted in a giggle turned baritone by his barrel chest. The cause of the accused killer's macabre mirth was not immediately apparent. Maybe he saw something funny in the way the judge was questioning a juror. Maybe he laughed just for the hell of it.

Police are also investigating the link between car dealer loan fraud at Universal Auto World in Lawrence, L.I. and the murder of 27-year-old salesman Collin Thomas outside the showroom. According to a civil forfeiture lawsuit, Universal employees paid "straw purchasers" (co-conspirators with a good credit history) to sign loan documents for more than $1.3m worth of luxury vehicles, which were then transferred to customers who didn't want their names to appear on the loan papers.

Police say car salesmen Dexter Bostick aka Bostic and Robert Ellis, who stand accused of firing upon NYPD Officers Herman Yan and Russel Timoshenko (who was killed), were involved with the scam. Bostick worked as a car salesman at nearby Five Towns Mitsubishi, just up the road from Universal on Burnside Avenue in Inwood. Ellis, who lived with Bostic aka Bostick, also may have once worked at Five Towns. "We're investigating any links between these people," Smith said. Collin Thomas had worked at Five Towns Chrysler, across the street, for several years before joining Universal Auto World. Thomas, 27, a father of two, was shot in the back as he closed up for the night on Jan. 11 2007.
As part of the homicide probe, Nassau County police raided the dealership, owned by auto czar Michael Oshry in 2007, and Oshry's Hewlett Harbor home and seized business records. Cops found banking records were sent to the house, though the state requires such files be kept at businesses, according to court papers filed in a civil forfeiture action by the Nassau district attorney.
"The dealership knew what was going on," an investigator said, "all the way to the top". Ten managers and salesmen and Universal Auto have been charged. Most defendants, including the dealership, were charged with scheme to defraud and grand larceny, as well as other charges.

The deeper and more disturbing mystery was how Bostic aka Bostick could find anything funny at all as he and his co-defendants stood accused of killing Police Officer Russel Timoshenko and wounding Yan. The way Bostick's bulk strained at the seams of his suit offered an answer as to why he did not try to get away on foot when he and his buddies were stopped in a car on Rogers Ave. in Brooklyn: He was too fat to run.

But there was still the question of why he would open fire. He had to know that cop-killers are always caught. The answer may be in some fundamental disconnect, suggested in the courtroom by that laughter, as well as by something he did after watching video of the fatal car stop on his lawyer's laptop while waiting for the proceedings to begin.

After viewing the surveillance camera footage, Bostic aka Bostick reached into his left trouser pocket, took out a wrist watch and carefully set the time as given at the bottom of the laptop. The eyes that had gazed blankly at the video went intent. The hand accused of ending Timoshenko's life for all time carefully worked the tiny knob on the side of the watch between thumb and forefinger. The prosecutor showed the surveillance camera footage twice on a big screen, once just for the jurors and again when Yan took the stand. The prosecutor asked Yan to identify a figure who could be seen stepping from the driver's side of a radio car that had its roof lights flashing. "That would be me," Yan said.

The prosecutor inquired about the figure stepping from the passenger side. "That would be my partner, Officer Timoshenko," Yan replied. The two figures approached either side of the black BMW, exactly as they had been trained. Timoshenko disappeared from camera view and an instant later something appeared at the bottom right corner of the screen. The prosecutor circled it with a red laser pointer.

"Who or what is that, Detective Yan?" she asked "That should be, uh ...," Yan began. He paused, his face pained. He was momentarily silent with all the devotion and compassion and empathy Bostic aka Bostick lacked. " ... my partner."

The prosecutor then played a record of Yan's radio transmission as he staggered back, wounded, having come so close to death his face was stippled with gunfire residue, but returning fire, never going down. He was asked to show the three juries his bullet wounds. His fingers were steady as he unbuttoned the left sleeve and the neck of his uniform shirt. He stepped before what is dubbed the blue jury, the green jury and the yellow jury.

"Show the defense table," the judge then ordered. "Your arm and your chest." Yan stood before Bostic and the other two. The detective had not paused when he talked about being shot. Even as he showed his scars to the defendants he was not thinking about himself. He had fury and disgust in his eyes because he was sure these men had killed his partner. (Bostick shot Timoshenko in the face with a .45-caliber pistol and Robert Ellis fired on Yan with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun, police said.)

Yan rebuttoned his shirt without a fumble, though he had just been asked to do more than most could bear. At least he was spared hearing that laugh.
See my prior post,Tuesday, August 19, 2008, NYPD officer Russel Timoshenko killing appears linked to used car scam at Universal Auto World LI. Ballistics evidence showed that the .45-caliber pistol used in the shooting of the police officers also was used a day earlier in a drive-by shooting in Queens, police said. The shooter was in a Porsche that was taken from a car dealership on Long Island, then returned after the crime. It was the same lot where the SUV was stolen and where Bostic had worked. Police also were investigating whether any of the weapons were used in the unsolved slaying earlier this year of a salesman at another, nearby Long Island dealership. The 27-year-old victim was shot in the back at closing time

CASEY ANTHONY FAMILY SPOKESMAN, LARRY GARRISON, FIRED FOR TAKING KICK BACKS, WHERE DID THAT $6,500 FROM NBC NEWS GO, LARRY ?

Spokesperson resigns; family says he was fired, Last Edited: Wednesday, 12 Nov 2008, 5:17 PM EST, Where's Caylee?

COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- Larry Garrison, the spokesperson for the Anthony family, resigned Wednesday for what he calls erratic behavior by the Anthony family .

Garrison released the following statement:" Due to the erratic behavior over the last several months exhibited by The Anthony family, Larry Garrison is resigning as their spokesperson. It is my opinion that others have manipulated them into situations, that would not dignify the family. I can no longer be part of that behavior. I wish them all the peace and resolution they so deserve. The truth always comes out in the end, and in this case "The truth is better than the spin." -Larry Garrison

The Anthony's attorney Mark Nejame laughted at the statement and said it was released moments after Garrison found out he was fired. Nejame says Larry Garrison demanded money for interviews with George and Cindy Anthony and he says Garrison pocketed the cash. An invoice released by NBC News shows a $6,500.00 fee Garrison charged them saying it was for the use of pictures, pictures Nejame and the Anthony family say Garrison never had. Nejame says Garrison demanded the money for George and Cindy to do an interview for Dateline NBC.

I have said all along that Larry Garrison was in it for the cash and face time on TV, see my prior post, Tuesday, September 02, 2008, LEONARD PADILLA, LARRY GARRISON & THE "THREE RING CIRCUS" IN ORLANDO WITH THE MADE FOR TV/BOOK DEAL ON THE DEATH OF CAYLEE ANTHONY.

On Wednesday FOX 35’s Holly Bristow left Garrison a message and emailed him asking for a response to him being fired before he resigned. As of 5pm Wednesday he had not yet responded. Nejame says he's investigating to see if Garrison collected money from anyone else. Cindy Anthony tells Holly Bristow that she's angry and feels betrayed and that Larry had gained her trust.The Anthony’s appointed Garrison as their spokesperson back in August to answer questions from the media. Caylee hasn't been seen since June. Her mother, Casey Anthony , did not report her missing until July. The mother has pleaded not guilty to murder, but the child's body hasn't been found.

Somalia's Al Shabaab Seize Merka Port Near The Capital of Mogadishu, Al-Shabaab Operate Their Website Out of Vancouver WA USA.

Somalia's al Shabaab seize port near capital; Source: Reuters, Posted: 11/12/08 5:05AM, By Mohamed Ibrahim.

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somalia's militant Islamist insurgent group al Shabaab captured a port near the capital on Wednesday without firing a shot. Residents said fighters for al Shabaab, which means "Youth" in Arabic, rode into Merka port, 90 km (56 miles) south-west of Mogadishu, the morning after government-aligned militia left overnight in anticipation of the incursion.

The Al-Shabaab website is http://www.kataaib.net/ and this website is hosted in the USA at the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA. Jihad terror sites hosted in the USA, like http://kataaib.net/ the official website of the Somali Harakat Al-Shabaab Al-Mujahideen, must be shut down.

Merka is now the closest town to Mogadishu held by al Shabaab and is the most significant territorial gain by the insurgents since they took Kismayu port further south earlier this year. Al Shabaab is on Washington's list of terrorist organizations and has rejected a tentative, U.N.-brokered peace agreement between the Western-backed Somali government and moderate Islamists to try to end 17 years of conflict.

And yet al-Shabaab operates a terror website that recruits jihadists from Vancouver WA, USA, the Dotster Web co refuses to shut down the al-Shabaab terror website. Somalia will be the next Iraq unless steps are taken now to shut down the al-Shabaab head hunters.

Inhabitants said the fighters came into Merka on pick-up trucks mounted with machineguns, known locally as "technicals." "We saw them coming in. They went directly to the police station," one resident, Mustaf Hasan, told Reuters by telephone from Merka. "Now they are passing along the main street. There were no skirmishses. The militia left overnight." In the early stages of their two-year insurgency, the Islamists tended to take towns briefly before moving out again in a show of strength. But this year, they have been taking and holding territory, and now control most of south Somalia.

They have also been staging regular attacks in Mogadishu. Analysts see al Shabaab as unlikely to mount an assault on Mogadishu immediately, given disunity within the Islamist ranks -- moderates are increasingly unhappy with al Shabaab's tactics -- and the presence of Ethiopian troops backing the government.

It was combined Ethiopian-Somali troops who kicked the Islamists out of Mogadishu at the end of 2006, after a brief six-month rule, ushering in the insurgency. Ethiopia was due to start withdrawing its soldiers from Mogadishu later this month under the peace plan, but al Shabaab's presence so close may force a re-think, analysts say.

Shortly after Ethiopian troops crossed into Somalia in late 2006 to dislodge an Islamist regime in Mogadishu, the US Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command quietly sent operatives and AC-130 gunships to an airstrip near the Ethiopian town of Dire Dawa. From there, members of a classified USA unit called Task Force 88 crossed repeatedly into Somalia to hunt senior members of a Qaeda cell believed to be responsible for the 1998 American Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

Danes Should Leave Somalia, internet threat by al-Shabaab against "The Dirty Dogs Our Sword Is Dripping With Your Blood." Al-Shabaab website in USA !

Somali reportedly threatens Denmark in new Al-Shabaab internet video. The Al-Shabaab website is http://www.kataaib.net/ and this website is hosted in the USA at the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA.

Militant groups in Africa are threatening Denmark. According to the PET [Danish Security and Intelligence Service], Danish interests abroad are the most likely targets. Denmark and Danes abroad are again being threatened with terrorism after the reprinting of the Muhammad caricatures.

This time, the warning comes not from Pakistan or Afghanistan, but from a Sunni Muslim group in Somalia that is known to have training camps and close ties to the Al-Qa'idah terrorist network. In a video posted to the Internet, a recruit from the Al-Shabab group vows revenge against "the dirty dogs in Denmark."

"May God break their hands for what they have done," the young man prays. He is masked by a PLO scarf and is posing behind an antitank missile. In broken English, he promises that Muslims "will never forget the ridicule of the best human beings in the world and of the last messenger." "So sleep with thoughts of our sword, which is dripping with your blood," is the message from the windblown edge of a forest.

The PET refused to comment on the threat video from the group in Somalia, but in its latest risk assessment the Danish Defence Intelligence Service (FE) says Al-Shabab is a group that is worth watching and one that will "pose the greatest terrorist threat to foreigners in Somalia.""It is likely this group has close connections with the rest of Al-Qa'idah's network in East Africa," the FE wrote, discussing the daily attacks on Somali, Ethiopian, and Ugandan security forces.

Al-Shabab is also suspected of being behind the kidnappings and killings of foreigners in Somalia, which has been ravaged in recent years by civil war, internal collapse, and pressure from Islamist extremists.
Danes Should Leave Somalia;
The Foreign Ministry warns in the strongest possible terms against entering
Somalia and urges all Danes to leave the country immediately. Denmark has no diplomatic representation in Somalia, but it does have embassies in the neighbouring countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.


The Danish chief of the aid organization UNICEF Somalia, Christian Balslev-Olesen travels in and out of the country, which experienced five suicide bombings last week. These bombings targeted the United Nations, among other organizations."We have had some indirect threats since the caricatures were reprinted, and for a short time, we avoided entering certain parts of Somalia. Al-Shabab has so far been preoccupied with the Somali agenda and has largely been a collective term for terrorism, religious extremism, and crime. So it is something new if the group is now directly threatening Danish targets.

But there is a constant radicalization process, and Al-Qa'idah has congratulated Al-Shabab several times on its attacks," Balslev-Olesen said from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

From air and sea, Allied troops invaded Normandy's beaches on June 6, 1944, with 5,300 ships, nearly 11,000 airplanes, about 50,000 military vehicles and 154,000 troops. The strategy was to establish five beachheads as gateways into the German-occupied territory. The assault eventually opened Western Europe to Allied forces and turned the tide against Adolf Hitler.

With two combat assaults under its belt, the 82nd Airborne Division was now ready for the most ambitious airborne operation of the war so far, as part of Operation Neptune, the invasion of Normandy. The 82nd Airborne Division conducted Operation Boston, part of the airborne assault phase of the Overlord plan.

In preparation for the operation, the division was reorganized. Due to a need for integrating replacement troops, rest, and refitting following the fighting in Italy, the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment was not assigned to the division for the invasion. Two new parachute infantry regiments, the
507th and the 508th, were attached to provide it, along with the 505th, a three-parachute infantry regiment punch.

On
June 5, 1944 (just hours before midnight) and June 6, 1944, these paratroopers, parachute artillery elements, and the 319th and 320th Glider Field Artillery Battalions, boarded hundreds of transport planes and gliders to begin the largest airborne assault in history.

In the early hours of June 6, 1944, paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division dropped into Ste.-Mère-Église, a town of 1,500 astride a road network a few miles from the invasion sector called Utah Beach. Their mission was to block German troops from attacking the American infantrymen arriving at dawn in the vanguard of the D-Day invasion. The 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment and its attachments were to land east of the MERDERET River about 1,000 yards northwest of STE. MERE EGLISE. The 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment was to land west of the MERDERET River about 1,000 yards north of AMFREVILLE. By about 4:30 a.m., the paratroopers had seized the town, and Lt. Col. Edward Krause of the 505th Parachute Infantry raised an American flag outside the town hall. This action was depicted in the Movie "Saving Private Ryan", Cpt John Miller (Tom Hanks) locates a friend of Private Ryan's, who reveals that Ryan is defending a strategically-important bridge over the Merderet River in the fictional town of Ramelle. They also find Brigadier General Amend dead in a glider (based on the death of Brigadier General Don Pratt).

* In real life, Paratrooper Army Pvt.
Robert Warner, who was in his early 20s at the time, landed in Normandy (Ste.- Mere- Eglise) with the 507th Parachute Infantry (82nd Airborne). He had enlisted in April 1942 after graduation from the former St. Patrick Academy High School in Binghamton. A newspaper story reported him as getting injured in combat, although his injuries were not life-threatening.

* In real life, Paratrooper Robert Warner (one of 4 Warner Brothers at Normandy) of the 82nd Airborne, received the "American Service Medal", the "Distinguished Unit Badge", the "European African Middle Eastern Service Medal" and a "
Purple Heart"as he defended his position at the Merderet river.
The first time I watched the movie "Saving PrivateRyan," I began to understood why it was difficult for my father and my 3 uncles to talk about their war time experiences at Normandy, "When I saw the movie, I was stunned. I just never knew what it was all about or what they had to deal with or exactly how horrible it was," "I wish they would have talked about it. "
The movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, chronicled an Army rescue mission to find paratrooper Pvt. James Ryan (one of 4 Ryan Brothers at Normandy), who was in the 82nd Airborne and was dropped into the Ste Mere Eglise area (just as Robert Warner was) and send him home after three of his brothers were killed in combat at Normandy. Unlike the fictional Mrs. Ryan in the movie, Katherine Warner did not lose any sons in combat. Katherine, a house wife, kept 4 Blue stars in the front window of the family's Schubert Street home in Binghamton NY to wait for her four sons' return.

OSAMA bin Laden is planning an attack against the United States that will "outdo by far" September 11, Al-Qaeda reinforces Somalia training camps.

OSAMA bin Laden is planning an attack against the United States that will "outdo by far" September 11, an Arab newspaper reported. - bin Laden 'planning US attack'- Goal to 'outdo' 9/11- al-Qaeda reinforces Somalia training camps.

And according to a former senior Yemeni al-Qaeda operative, the terrorist organisation has entered a "positive phase", reinforcing specific training camps (Somalia) around the world that will lead the next "wave of action" against the West.

The warning, on the front page of an Arabic newspaper published in London, Al-Quds Al-Arabi - and widely reported in the major Italian papers - quotes a person described as being "very close to al-Qaeda" in Yemen. The paper is edited by Abdel al-Bari Atwan, who is said to be the last journalist to interview Osama bin Laden in 1996. According to the report, bin Laden is himself closely following preparations for an attack against the US and aims to "change the face of world politics and economics". The operative is quoted as saying that "this will be shown by the fact that we now control a major part of the south of Somalia".

The ex-operative says he remains in contact with current chiefs of the organisation in Yemen and that only six months ago bin Laden had sent a message to all jihad cells in the Arab world which asked them not to interact with their governments or local political parties and to deny any request for mediation or formal talks.

The source also said that during the next few days the terrorist organisation may send a sign of its violent intentions. The warning has emerged at the same time as publication of a report leaked to The Telegraph newspaper which reveals that a document drawn up by the intelligence branch of the Ministry of Defence says that thousands of extremists are active in the UK.

The document says the operatives are predominantly UK-born and aged between 18 and 30. Many are believed to have been trained in overseas terrorist camps (Somalia). Security officials, The Telegraph reports, are convinced al-Qaeda cells will attempt another "spectacular" inside the UK with major transport centres, such as airports and train stations, the most likely targets. Other targets include the Houses of Parliament, Whitehall and Buckingham and St James' palaces, with the threat level described as "severe".

Secret Order Lets U.S. Raid Al Qaeda in Many Countries, Al-Qaeda in Somalia a favorite target, Al-Qaeda in Somalia has a website in Vancouver WA USA.




















These military raids, typically carried out by Special Operations forces (Navy Seals), were authorized by a classified order that Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld signed in the spring of 2004 with the approval of President Bush, the officials said. The secret order gave the military new authority to attack the Qaeda terrorist network anywhere in the world, and a more sweeping mandate to conduct operations in countries not at war with the United States.

In 2006, for example, a Navy Seal team raided a suspected militants’ compound in the Bajaur region of Pakistan, according to a former top official of the Central Intelligence Agency. Officials watched the entire mission — captured by the video camera of a remotely piloted Predator aircraft — in real time in the C.I.A.’s Counterterrorist Center at the agency’s headquarters in Virginia 7,000 miles away.

Some of the military missions have been conducted in close coordination with the C.I.A., according to senior American officials, who said that in others, like the Special Operations raid in Syria on Oct. 26 of this year, the military commandos acted in support of C.I.A.-directed operations.

But as many as a dozen additional operations have been canceled in the past four years, often to the dismay of military commanders, senior military officials said. They said senior administration officials had decided in these cases that the missions were too risky, were too diplomatically explosive or relied on insufficient evidence.

The 2004 order was a step in the evolution of how the American government sought to kill or capture Qaeda terrorists around the world. It was issued after the Bush administration had already granted America’s intelligence agencies sweeping power to secretly detain and interrogate terrorism suspects in overseas prisons and to conduct warrantless eavesdropping on telephone and electronic communications.

Shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, Mr. Bush issued a classified order authorizing the C.I.A. to kill or capture Qaeda militants around the globe. By 2003, American intelligence agencies and the military had developed a much deeper understanding of Al Qaeda’s extensive global network, and Mr. Rumsfeld pressed hard to unleash the military’s vast firepower against militants outside the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Even with the order, each specific mission requires high-level government approval. Targets in Somalia, for instance, need at least the approval of the defense secretary, the administration official said, while targets in a handful of countries, including Pakistan and Syria, require presidential approval.

The Pentagon has exercised its authority frequently, dispatching commandos to countries including Pakistan and Somalia. Details of a few of these strikes have previously been reported.

For example, shortly after Ethiopian troops crossed into Somalia in late 2006 to dislodge an Islamist regime in Mogadishu, the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command quietly sent operatives and AC-130 gunships to an airstrip near the Ethiopian town of Dire Dawa. From there, members of a classified unit called Task Force 88 crossed repeatedly into Somalia to hunt senior members of a Qaeda cell believed to be responsible for the 1998 American Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

See my prior post, Wednesday, May 07, 2008, THE COLUMBIAN NEWSPAPER; IN OUR VIEW, INTERNET CENSOR (BILL WARNER) Bill Warner, a Sarasota private investigator (www.wbipi.com ), wants Dotster Inc. of Vancouver to refuse service to kataaib.net . Warner, who has launched similar purge efforts in other cities with other Internet companies, says kataaib.net supports an al-Qaida organization in Somalia, Al-shabaab is al-Qaeda.

At the time, American officials said Special Operations troops were operating under a classified directive authorizing the military to kill or capture Qaeda operatives if failure to act quickly would mean the United States had lost a “fleeting opportunity” to neutralize the enemy.

The 2004 order also provided a foundation for the orders that Mr. Bush approved in July allowing the military to conduct raids into the Pakistani tribal areas, including the Sept. 3 operation by Special Operations forces that killed about 20 militants, American officials said.

Muslim Terrorist Ahmed Mohamed came to Tampa USA to cause harm within the country," Terrorists at USF again, Mohamed will get 15 years in Federal Pen.

TAMPA - Ahmed Mohamed aka Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, came to the United States to gather "information about explosives and acquiring components in this country to construct explosives to cause harm within this country," a federal prosecutor asserts in a newly filed court document.

In order to achieve victory, Ahmed Mohamed states, Muslims needed to “deceive the infidels, and keep them in the dark”.The defendant made clear that his intention was to assist bretheren in carrying out martyrdom operations that involved the murder of American soldiers.

Ahmed Mohamed used his studies at USF as a cover for a covert operation to make and distribute bombs in the USA to cause harm to Americans. Mohamed entered the United States on or about January 1, 2007. He entered on a F-1 student visa. In his application for that visa in October, 2006, he acknowledged that he had previously been “arrested or convicted” of an “offense or crime” in Egypt. The defendant has admitted to the Probation Office that he had been arrested in 2003 in Egypt and had been held in custody there for over four months.

Mohamed, an
Egyptian student in the United States to attend the University of South Florida (USF), is scheduled to be sentenced Friday (postponed to Dec 18th 2008) after pleading guilty to providing material support to terrorists by making and posting on the Web site You Tube a video in which he shows how to use a remote-controlled device to detonate a bomb.

Mohamed was arrested, along with his friend, Youseff Megahed, last year in South Carolina after deputies there said they found explosives in the trunk of their car. Megahed is still awaiting trial on charges of illegally transporting explosives. The prosecutor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hoffer, argues in a sentencing memorandum filed in Mohamed's case that Megahed, a legal, permanent resident of the United States, was a "front man" who was to help Mohamed acquire firearms.

By operation of law, the defendant’s final adjusted sentencing range is 180
months imprisonment, the statutory maximum term of imprisonment for a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A under the circumstances of this case. A thoughtful consideration of all of the pertinent sentencing factors indicates that an appropriate sentence for this defendant is the sentence indicated in the Pre Sentence Report – a term of fifteen years imprisonment. A lesser sentence is not appropriate in this case. A sentence of 180 months imprisonment would do much to deter a defendant such as this one and protect the community from his evil designs.

Mohamed was "no mere neophyte or 'arm-chair' supporter of violent jihad. He had taken steps in July 2007 to teach others how to set off remote-controlled detonations from a distance; he had engaged in extensive personal research on his laptop computer and had, in fact, manufactured on his own quantities of a potassium nitrate explosive mixture; he had purchased sulfur and other products which would be useful in the manufacture of black powder and the defendant purchased, at the same time, from the same store, and during the same trip, hydrogen peroxide and acetone onyx remover (nail polish remover). Those items are two of the primary components of the high explosive acetone peroxide (Mother of Satan Bomb); and he had sought to possess firearms unlawfully and attempted to buy them, with the apparent aim to train in their use.

Acetone peroxide (triacetone triperoxide, peroxyacetone, TATP, TCAP) is an organic peroxide and a primary high explosive. It takes the form of a white crystalline powder with a distinctive acrid smell. It is highly susceptible to heat, friction, and shock. For its instability, it has been called the "Mother of Satan". However the instability is greatly impoved by impurities. It is normally stable when pure, but it dissolves quickly(even when kept under water). It is one of the few explosives which is explosive when wet or kept underwater.

Ahmed Mohamed agreed that he made the video relating to the creation and use of a radio remote controlled ignition system. He acknowledged that he had told FBI agents that his aim in the distribution of that video was to aid persons fighting in the Middle East against “invaders” and that he considered U.S. military forces in the Middle East to be part of the “invading” force. By doing so, Mohamed’s statements constituted admissions that his intention in producing and distributing the recording was to support attempts by terrorists to murder employees of the United States, including members of the uniformed services, while such persons were engaged in or on account of the performance of their official duties.

The images on the defendant’s computer included a photograph of a child aiming a anti-tank weapon while stepping on a military helmet which appears to be of American manufacture and also an image of a map of what appears to be Israel circled in what appears to be blood, being held in the palm of a bleeding hand.

Ahmed Mohamed called the United States a "vile nation" when speaking to his parents on Dec. 20, Hoffer writes. Agents found a 37-line poem on Mohamed's computer that appeared to have been written by Mohamed, Hoffer writes. "The author of the poem extols various figures such as the 'exalted Ossama Bin Laden' and other members of Al Qaeda. … In it, the author of the poem pledged his 'blood,' his 'neck' and 'soul' to his Lord and dreamt of the day that Egypt would lead the world by G-D's canonical law, and by jihad in the cause of G-D," Hoffer writes.

(The prosecutor, as a matter of practice, doesn't write out the word "God" as part of his Jewish faith.). Hoffer writes that "the coldest statement of this defendant and the most telling as to his hatred and disdain for the United States came in a hand-written letter which the defendant sent to a Hillsborough County jail deputy on April 1, 2008. In that letter, which he signed, the defendant 'congratulated' the jail deputy upon the fact that the Pentagon had recently announced the death of more than 4,000 U.S. troops in the Middle East."

Attention Islamic Suicide Bombers, Omar bin-Laden Married to a former Biker & Omar Bakri's Daughter is a Stripper, The Girls of al-Qaeda, Bombs Away.














The Girls of al-Qaeda are having a ball and the Islamic Radical Suicide Bombers of al-Qaeda are blowing their's off. Not much of a fair trade here, Osama bin-Laden and Omar Bakri Mohammed require their followers to adhere to strict radical Wahhabi current of Islam and yet their sons and daughters are involved with hookers, drugs, nightclubs and strippers.

TERROR chief Osama bin Laden’s son spoke of his happiness at marrying an eccentric Cheshire gran. Omar bin Laden, 27, issued a statement confirming he had re-tied the knot with Jane Felix-Browne, 52. She has been married five times before. Jeddah scrap metal dealer Omar, the fourth son of al-Qaeda’s fugitive leader, hit back at critics in his homeland. The Saudi insisted his bride, who had a Jewish great-grandfather, was a Muslim of partly Kuwaiti descent.



"Muslim Suicide Bomber" No such animal. Oxymoron, says Na'im AbdurRafi of Binghamton NY. A person crosses the line from Muslim to non-Muslim upon resolving to commit suicide. They are doing more than committing the most egregious of sins. They are abandoning the protection of the Creator. Desperate people commit suicide--people in despair. You cannot believe in Allah, fear Allah, trust Allah, depend on Allah, etc., and be in despair.

But suppose the aggressor kills with computerized weapons and all you have are rocks. What do you do? What did David do? You fight. By any means necessary. If you must make a bomb of your body that's what you do. And you are hopeful of victory. You are not in despair. Have there been desperate bombers? Among the Kamikaze? Among the Basque? Among the Algerians? Among the IRA? Among the Palestinians? Among the early Christians who bore witness in the face of certain torturous death at the hands of the Romans? Maybe. Only the Creator knows intentions--what is in the heart. The difference between intention fueled by despair and that fueled by hope is like the difference between the Hellfire and Paradise, says Na'im AbdurRafi. (PARADISE FOR THE MUSLIM SUICIDE BOMBER).

In other words, Na'im AbdurRafi claims that the Muslim suicide bomber does not commit "suicide" if he blows up America soldiers, and himself, for the cause of jihad, Praise Allah. "It seems many other American youngsters are receiving the mercy of Allah. They have traveled to many parts of the world to destroy Islam. Their resolve is to kill whomever stands in the way or who does not get out of the way quickly enough. But by the mercy of Allah, death is preventing them from acting on their resolve", so says Na'im AbdurRafi the owner of "Muslim Mart USA" in Binghamton NY
