Foiling the Next 9/11 and Not Even Knowing It, Private Investigator Bill Warner Exposed US Airways Plot

Foiling the Next 9/11 and Not Even Knowing It, Private Investigator Bill Warner Exposed US Airways Plot.

The United States may have narrowly missed a repeat of the 9/11 attacks in June — and, apparently, even the FBI doesn’t realize it. (Private Investigator Bill Warner was the only person to put together the two US Airways Flights with weapons smuggled on the planes on the same day with the same destination, Phoenix AZ.). On June 4, a 24-year-old Muslim man named Raed Abdhul-Rahman Al-Saif was arrested for trying to bring a seven-inch knife on board a U.S. Airways flight at Tampa International Airport, destined for Phoenix. The blade was seen by a screener and Alsaif was caught before he could get onto the airliner. Of course, he says he is innocent, as some forgetful friend gave him the luggage bag and failed to mention that a knife was embedded inside the material, which the criminal complaint states was “artfully” concealed in such a way as to allow for it to be retrieved once the flight took off.
Alsaif graduated from the Islamic Saudi Academy in Virginia in 2003. For those that don’t remember, this school has been embroiled in a little bit of controversy the past two years. In October 2007, the U.S. Commission on International Religion Freedom requested that the State Department close the school, citing the use of textbooks filled with extremism.
The commission again reported on the school’s radical curriculum in June 2008. One graduate has been convicted of working with al-Qaeda, while two former students were kicked out of Israel upon landing due to clear signs they were planning suicide bombings.
Private investigator Bill Warner notes that when Al-Saif was booked and photographed by police in October on his second arrest on drug charges, he had a beard — a beard that was shaven off before he attempted to board the U.S. Airways flight, More................

See Private Investigator Bill Warner's original expose post one day after the arrest of Raed Al-Saif was made public, Wednesday, June 17, 2009, Were Two U.S. Airways Planes Going To Be Hijacked As they Headed To Phoenix AZ On June 4th 2009 From Tampa And Philadelphia at 8:00AM ?


On June 4th 2009 two separate incidents took place with airplanes of US Airways, a man,
Damien Young, on the Philadelphia PA flight to Phoenix AZ Flight Number 1195 scheduled to leave at 7:10am, had smuggled onboard a 9mm handgun.


Roshid Milledge, a U.S. Airways employee, aided and abetted Young's possession and concealment of the dangerous weapon on board the aircraft.A man, Raed Abduhl-Rahman Alsaif ,24,on the Tampa FL flight to Phoenix AZ, flight Number 1077 that was scheduled leave at 7:45am, attempted to smuggle onboard a 7 inch butcher knife. Raed Abduhl-Rahman Alsaif was a graduate of the of the Islamic Saudi Academy Alexandria, VA Class of 2003.


New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer has recently questioned whether the Islamic Saudi Academy in Alexandria, Virginia, is another example of radical Islamic madrassas funded by and linked to terrorism here and abroad.

L.I. Man Bryant Neal Vinas aka Bashir al-Amreki" Joined the US Army blogged for Malika El Aroud Joined Al-Qaeda Then Flipped on Them.

L.I. Man Bryant Neal Vinas aka Bashir al-Amreki" Joined the US Army blogged for Malika El Aroud Joined Al-Qaeda Then Flipped on Them.

Bryant Neal Vinas grew up in the solid middle class of Suffolk County, the son of an engineer, the child of a couple that had emigrated from South America, a fan of football and video games, an altar boy and, eventually, a Boy Scout.

But Bryant Neal Vinas became very angry, according to his mother, when his parents’ bitter divorce cleaved through his adolescence. He opted against college and instead joined the United States Army at 18. Years later, he became a Muslim, joined a mosque, began visiting jihadist Web sites and, in 2008, found himself traveling to Pakistan, and eventually Afghanistan. There, this young man from an American suburb tried to kill American soldiers in a Qaeda rocket attack against a military base, according to federal court papers unsealed in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

Mr. Vinas worshiped at a mosque on Long Island, where he worked briefly as a truck driver and in a car wash, according to officials, one of whom said he had been largely “self-radicalized.” This official said that Mr. Vinas had met some people at the mosque, the Islamic Association of Long Island, but largely turned toward jihad on the Internet.

Mr. Vinas, 26, pleaded guilty in January to conspiring to murder United States nationals, providing material support to Al Qaeda and receiving military training from the group.

He also told Brooklyn federal prosecutors and F.B.I. agents about discussions he had with operational planners from Al Qaeda about a plot to blow up a Long Island Rail Road train inside Pennsylvania Station, according to several law enforcement officials.

The cases in Belgium and France center on two groups of French and Belgian citizens, several of whom trained in the camps, as well as a Moroccan-born woman, Malika El Aroud, who has been accused of using the Internet to recruit the young Muslim men to train with Al Qaeda.

Mr. Vinas is expected to be a key witness in those cases because he spent time in the training camps with the men.

Mr. Vinas, who is in custody in New York, has also provided a 20-page witness statement that will be entered into evidence in the Belgian case, one law enforcement official said.

Ms. El Aroud, a Belgian citizen, has become one of the most prominent Internet jihadists in Europe. Her husband killed the anti-
Taliban resistance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud two days before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the behest of Osama bin Laden.

Wednesday, May 28, 2008,
OPEN LETTER TO THE SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE AND THE NEW YORK TIMES, CAUTION PANDERING TO ISLAMIC RADICAL MALIKA EL AROUD IS HARMFUL TO "OUR HEALTH"

On Wednesday May 28th 2008 the Sarasota Herald Tribune reprinted a story from the NY Times concerning and romanticizing Malika El Aroud a Belgium female "Islamic Blogger" with blue slippers monogrammed in gold SEXY, she advocates the violent over through of the USA, the UK and every other non-believer Western Country, quote "She calls herself a female holy warrior for Al-Qaida" the same al-Qaida that Osama ben-Laden admits was responsible for the attacks on September 11th 2001 in the USA....

Malika El Arouud's first husband had a part in the execution of the beginning of the 9/11/01 attacks, in early 2001 she followed her husband to Afghanistan as he trained at an al-Qaida camp, she was installed in a camp for foreign women in Jalalabad, her husband became ready for his mission and two days before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, carried out a suicide bombing in Afghanistan that killed the anti-Taliban resistance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud at the behest of Osama bin Laden.

Massoud was the target of a suicide attack which occurred at Khwaja Bahauddin on September 9, 2001. The attackers were two Arabs, Abdessater Dahmane and Bouraoui el-Ouaer both Tunisians, Malika El Around's husband Abdessater Dahmane was killed, and she took to the Internet as the widow of a martyr this woman is a terrorist.

Long Island NY Traitor and Muslim Convert Bryant Neal Vinas aka "Bashir al-Amreki" Gave Al Qaeda Info On NY City Subways, LIRR.




Long Island NY Traitor and Muslim Convert Bryant Neal Vinas aka "Bashir al-Amreki" Gave Al Qaeda Info On NY City Subways, LIRR.

A Long Island man confessed to feeding Al Qaeda information about New York's subways and LIRR trains, triggering last year's Thanksgiving Eve Subway terror alert, the feds say.

Bryant Neal Vinas, 26, the son of South American immigrants and a convert to Islam, was captured in November in Pakistan after he joined in a rocket attack on U.S. troops in Afghanistan, according to court papers unsealed Wednesday.

He confessed his treason almost immediately and began cooperating, offering information of potentially great value because he had met with high-level operational leaders, sources said. The court papers unsealed Wednesday said Vinas provided "expert advice and assistance" derived from his "specialized knowledge" of New York's subways and the Long Island Rail Road.

Vinas' hometown of Patchogue is the same middle-class community that produced Lt. Michael Murphy the Navy SEAL who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery on the battlefield in Afghanistan. Vinas began attending a mosque in Selden, L.I., and dressing in Islamic garb, but never explained his conversion to his Peruvian-born father. Vinas began spending time away from home, he told his father he attended a mosque and community center about eight miles away in Selden, the Islamic Association of Long Island , 10 Park Hill Dr, Selden, NY‎, a former FBI counter-terrorism official said suspected extremists had been identified at the mosque.

The NY subway system has been and will be a target of Al-Qaeda. The following events give credence to the need for a vibrant intelligence program that uniquely addresses the counter terrorism security equities of New York City. Each of them inextricably link New York City and terrorism in the post- September 11 period, mostly to members of Al-Muhajiroun.

UPDATE 8/15/07 NYPD TERROR REPORT, TERRORIST PLOT TO BOMB NEW YORK SUBWAY SYSTEM---The New York Daily News, citing unidentified police sources, reported that at least one of the suspects may be a member of the Islamic terrorist group HAMAS. The federal complaint said that one of the terrorists, Abu Mezer, had claimed in an application for political asylum in the United States that he had been arrested in Israel for allegedly "being a member of a known terrorist organization. Sources say that what was found in the apartment was four pipe bombs wired together with a hobbyist toggle switch.

The Media Anthrax Case: October 2001 ---In the space of a week, employees and visitors of the New York Post, NBC, CBS and ABC News in New York City were victim to anthrax attacks. A woman at another Manhattan location died of inhalation anthrax through cross contamination of the mail.

The Iyman Faris case: late 2002/early 2003 ---Al Qaeda operative Iyman Faris, on orders from Khalid Sheik Mohammed (mastermind behind September 11, 2001), twice examined the Brooklyn Bridge to evaluate the feasibility of destroying it. Deterred in part the NYPD’s high visibility policing, Faris reported that the “weather is too hot,” meaning security was too tight to carry out the attack. He is serving 20 years in prison for conspiring against targets including the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Subway Cyanide Plot: February 2003 ---An arrest of a jihadist in Saudi Arabia revealed computer records of a plot to attack the New York City subway system using hydrogen cyanide in dispersal canisters. Surveillance of the subway stations had previously been undertaken.

Iranian Agent Reconnaissance: 2003-2004 ---On three occasions security personnel from Iran’s Mission conducted surveillance of New York City landmarks and infrastructure including bridges and the subway system leading into Manhattan. The U.S. Government and the NYPD are concerned that they were building “off the shelf” reconnaissance of New York targets in advance of any future attacks against New York by terrorists supported by Iran, such as Hezbollah. This would replicate Iranian action prior to the 1994 bombing of the Jewish center in Buenos Aires where 85 persons were killed.

The Mohammed Babar Case: April 2004 ---An Al Qaeda operative was arrested by NYPD detectives and FBI agents in Queens, New York for his role in a plot to bomb pubs, restaurants, and train stations in London (they since have flipped him). He had been a member of a radical organization which still exists in the New York City area (Al-Muhajiroun). He was also linked to the Masjid al-fatima aka Islamic Center of Queens SEE VIDEO HERE, and has testified against 5 Uk terrorists who planned to bomb a disco, they were all convicted. Mohammed Junaid Babar is currently testifying in a UK courtroom against 3 more terrorist pals.

The Citigroup/Stock Exchange Case: July 2004 ---A laptop commuter of an Al Qaeda operative is recovered containing detailed reconnaissance plans ---a prerequisite for attack--- of the New York Stock Exchange and Citigroup headquarters in mid-town Manhattan.

Dhiren Barot, aka Aba Esi al-Hindi was convicted Nov. 7, 2006 in London and sentenced to life in prison for his role in plotting the destruction of London hotels, in addition to New York financial institutions, he is linked to al-Muhajiroun and to Mohammed Junaid Babar.

The Herald Square Case: August 2004 ---Shahawar Matin Siraj (Al-Muhajiroun) and James Elshafay were arrested for plotting to bomb the 34th Street and Sixth Avenue Subway station, located just a block away from Madison Square Garden, where the 2004 Republican National Convention was to be held. He is linked to the Mosque in Queens and to Mohammed Junaid Babar.

The Uzair Paracha Case: November 2005 ---Uzair Paracha, a Pakistani-born resident of New York City, was convicted of providing material support to Al Qaeda. Paracha’s father, who knew Bin Laden, was part owner in a Manhattan garment district business. It is believed that Paracha’s ultimate goal was to use that business’s shipping containers (Newark NJ) to smuggle weapons or explosives into New York City, he links to Aafia Siddiqui.

The Tariq Shah Case and Dr. Sabir of Boca Raton FL: May 2006 ---Tariq Shah, a Bronx resident and martial arts expert, was indicted for providing material support to Al Qaeda. Shah had conspired to provide martial arts and hand-to-hand combat with weapons training to Al Qaeda.

The Syed Hashmi Case: June 2006 ---Syed Hashmi, a Queens resident active in the New York City chapter of a radical Islamic group known as al-Mujairoun, was arrested in London where he was engaged in providing material support for Al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan. He is directly linked to the Masjid A-Fatima Mosque aka Islamic Center of Queens and to Mohammed Junaid Babar.

Path/Ground Zero Case: July 2006 ---Lebanon authorities arrested a principal in a plot to attack the PATH subway linking New Jersey to Lower Manhattan and to blow up the retaining wall at Ground Zero at the former World Trade Center site in an effort to flood lower Manhattan.With this operational environment in mind, the NYPD leadership has taken steps to assure that New York City’s post-September 11, 2001 counter terrorism and security interests were pursued thoughtfully and aggressively. Most important, it has been a well informed program thanks in large measure to its intelligence investigative, information gathering and analysis efforts.

Arrest of Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, a/k/a "Michael Mixon," Feb. 2007 on attempt charges of terrorism financing, material support of terrorism, and international money laundering; Alishtari, a 53-year-old resident of Ardsley, New York, facilitated the transfer of $152,000 with the intention that it be used in Afghanistan and Pakistan to help train terrorists. Specifically, in the latter half of 2006, Alishtari accepted payment to discreetly transfer these funds, believing that they were earmarked for Pakistan and Afghanistan terror training camps.

The NYPD does a terrific job in keeping NYC safe, the undercurrent of an impending terrorist attack, attributed to members of al-Muhajiroun underscores the need for increased surveillance and tactics to deter those who intend to inflict mass causalities in the Manhattan area.

DUBAI STOLEN CAR RACKET RUN BY PAKISTANI CAR DEALERS LIKE KARIM.

DUBAI USED CAR RACKET RUN BY PAKISTANI BUSINESSMEN, DUBAI (STOLEN) USED CAR MARKET KARIM, MASTER USED CAR SELLER.

One of the key players amidst this conspiracy is the middle man responsible for bringing thousands of Japanese cars into Britain - a car dealer from Dubai called Karim.

Karim has several contacts in the UK, one of whom is Neel Chudasama. Watchdog tracked down Mr Chudasama to his mansion in the heart of Bedfordshire and sent in an undercover team, posing as car buyers, to find out a little bit more about his line of work.

Not only did he admit to bringing in stolen cars but he bragged about how he could falsify their identities to make them appear new. But Mr Chudasama is one of many people involved in the importation of stolen cars.

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has warned importers against shipping cars from European countries into the country without counter-checking their documents with Interpol. A KRA Senior Deputy Commissioner in charge of Investigations and Enforcement, Joseph Nduati, said many top of the range cars shipped to Kenya through Dubai were suspected to be stolen.

The Standard also obtained a copy of Dubai Police Certificates, which have been used to clear some of the imported cars. The certificates read in part: "There is no Police objection for the vehicle as it conforms to all the laws."Nduati said it is believed the syndicate involves businessmen of Pakistan origin operating in Dubai."If you want to buy particular cars in Dubai, the traders ask you where you want to take them.

If it is Kenya, they say that is a good market," he said.Nduati said Kenya, unlike other countries, has been a destination for stolen cars. He advised buyers to confirm all import documents are in order before they pay for imported vehicles.

"BLACK CARS", STOLEN CARS SHIPPED TO DUBAI FOR REBIRTHING AT 4x4 MOTORS USED CAR SALES by Bill Warner.

"BLACK CARS", STOLEN CARS SHIPPED TO DUBAI FOR REBIRTHING AT 4x4 MOTORS USED CAR SALES by BILL WARNER.

"BLACK CARS" are stolen vehicles that have their Vehicle Identification Number switched with wrecked or junked vehicles, dead end trace on the number.
VIN Switching is a technique used by thieves to disguise the identity of a stolen vehicle. They will replace the VIN on a stolen vehicle with a VIN that is not associated with an active theft record.


The vehicle thief will then try to resell the stolen car to an unsuspecting customer or ship the car to Dubai. In addition to manually switching the VIN, some VIN switchers will also develop fraudulent titles and registrations to go along with the vehicle., thus making a "Black Car". untraceable.

After a very long and drawn out battle at the DUBAI courts the criminals won! That's the outcome of a two and a half year battle which one of the car fraud victims fought and lost. She lost to the infamous 4X4 Motors Showroom in Dubai which is known to purchase stolen cars from criminals. And not only did the victim lose her car and spent over 20,000 Dirhams in court fees but apparently the company 4x4 Motors now is claiming losses from the victim. The loss of what you may ask? The loss of the value of the stolen car which had been sitting at the 4x4 Motors for the past two and a half years. That's right. The criminals are unhappy because the stolen car which they purchased under the market value has depreciated over the course of the court battle so therefore they are not profiting as much as they would under normal conditions where the victim does not bother taking them to court. This was the fate of one of the cases described and it is also the result of pursuing such cases through the normal legal channels.This is a prime example of the deficiency in the U.A.E. legal system. This system is incapable of protecting its residents from professional criminals who are continuing to rob the local residents in an organized manner.

Car thieves will also use a phony name and address to buy a salvaged vehicle solely for its title and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). They steal a car of the same make and model and switch the VINs -- removing the rectangular VIN plate from the salvaged car and placing it in the stolen car, giving the vehicle a "clean" look.

The perpetrators then claim the stolen car is the salvaged one that s been rebuilt, register the car using the same phony name and address, and resell it to an innocent purchaser. or ship the car to Dubai, another 'Black Car" for Rebirthing.

SOME VEHICLES SHIPPED TO THE MIDDLE EAST, (IRAQ, SAUDI ARABIA, KUWAIT, DUBAI) BOTH LEGALLY AND ILLEGALLY, ARE USED TO SUPPORT TERRORISM AND IN SOME CASES ARE USED AS CAR BOMBS"



CANADIAN POLICE BUST ELEVEN IN FOUR PROVINCE RAID OF AUTO THEFT RING.The investigation began last October after Ontario Provincial Police noted that vehicles registered in their province had the same vehicle identification numbers ("Black Cars") as similar vehicles registered in the United States !"Most of them were upper-end vehicles like Cadillac Escalades and Ford F-250s.''Stolen ("Black Cars") cars were shipped to Dubai UAE for rebirthing in the Trade Free Zone.

Boiler Room Israeli Style, Eleven Arrested in Israel on U.S. Charges for Phony “Lottery Prize” Scheme that Targeted Elderly Victims in U.S.


Boiler Room Israeli Style, Eleven Arrested in Israel on U.S. Charges for Phony “Lottery Prize” Scheme that Targeted Elderly Victims in U.S.

In a scene right out of the Movie "Boiler Room" Israeli con men identified victims, or "leads," by purchasing from list brokers the names and contact information of U.S. residents who subscribed to sweepstakes lotteries. Then, operating out of multiple telemarketing boiler rooms run by "Managers in Israel," "Qualifiers" called the victims and, using a script, falsely told the victims they had won a substantial cash prize, and asked them about their assets. If the victim had sufficient assets, the victim was transferred to a "Shooter," who purported to be an attorney in the U.S., and who told the victims that to obtain the prize, they had to pay several thousands of dollars in fees and taxes.

Lottery names used by the defendants included "Clearinghouse Sweepstakes" and "Consumer's Clearinghouse," and law firm names used included "Abrahams Kline," "Bernstein Schwartz," "Steiner, Van Allen, and Colt," "Bloomberg and Associates," and "Meyer Stevens."

LEV L. DASSIN, the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and JOSEPH M. DEMAREST, JR., the Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation ("FBI"), announced that AVI AYACHE, MICHELLE YUVAL, YARON BAR, GILLIAN ROSENBERG, TOSHIN CHARLES SAMUELS, OSHRAT PORTOLYONI, NAOR GREEN, YULIA RAYZ, LIMOR COHEN, IAN KAYE, and AVI PEROV, all residents of Israel, were arrested today by the Israel National Police ("INP") pursuant to a U.S. extradition request on a superseding Indictment filed on July 16, 2009, in Manhattan federal court.

The eleven had been in custody in Israel since July 5 in connection with an Israeli investigation. A twelfth defendant, MATTHEW GETTO, was separately indicted on July 1, 2009, and was arrested by the FBI on July 4, 2009, at Newark International Airport, while attempting to return to Israel.
Same Scam Last Year, Sep. 28, 2008 Nine Israelis arrested for US lottery scam....US federal agents and Israeli police arrested nine Israelis in Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan on Friday on charges that they bilked New Yorkers out of more than $2 million through a lottery telemarketing scam. They are accused of cold-calling people in New York from a "boiler-room" operation in Ramat Gan and asking them to wire as much as $40,000 to Israel to claim nonexistent international sweepstakes prizes. The ring targeted senior citizens, who were told that the calls were coming from a New York law firm and that the wire transfers were taxes and fees that needed to be paid before the winnings could be released, according to an indictment filed in Manhattan federal court.

As set forth in the 2009 Indictments and the Government's victim notification motion in the AYACHE case:
From approximately 2005 through 2009, the defendants participated in a phony "lottery prize" scheme that targeted victims, mostly elderly, in the United States. Aliases and call forwarding telephone numbers were used to mask the fact that the defendants were located in Israel.

Flowers and gift baskets were also sent to some victims to "congratulate" them on their purported lottery winnings. Moreover, victims who sent money to pay the supposed fees and taxes to claim their prize were typically contacted again by Shooters and induced to send additional funds, amounting to tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. In reality, there was no lottery prize and the victims were ultimately bilked out of an estimated total of approximately $25 million.

Each of the twelve defendants is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and mail fraud through telemarketing, which carries a maximum potential penalty of 30 years in prison. AYACHE, YUVAL, BAR, ROSENBERG, SAMUELS, PORTOLYONI, GREEN, RAIZ, and COHEN each are also charged with one substantive count of mail fraud through telemarketing and one substantive count of wire fraud through telemarketing. Each of the substantive counts carries a maximum potential penalty of 30 years in prison.

The investigation into this lottery telemarketing fraud is being conducted by the FBI in cooperation with the INP. This investigation follows a coordinated FBI and INP investigation last year that resulted in the indictment in September 2008 of ten other Israeli residents for a similar scheme in United States v. Guy Mayo et al., 08 Cr. 907 (LAK).

Extradition of the defendants in that case remains pending. Mr. DASSIN praised the investigative work of the FBI and the Tel Aviv Fraud Division of the Israel National Police. Mr. DASSIN also expressed his gratitude to the Department of International Affairs within the Office of the State Attorney in the Ministry of Justice for the State of Israel, and the Tel Aviv District Attorney's Office for their cooperation in the investigation. Mr. DASSIN also thanked the Department of Justice Office of International Affairs for its assistance in the extradition process.

This case is being prosecuted by the Office's Organized Crime Unit. Assistant United States Attorneys AVI WEITZMAN and STEVE LEE are in charge of the prosecution.
