Cell Phone Tracking (GPS) and Car Tracking (GPS) Without A Warrant by Private Investigators Is It Legal, "Big Brother is tucked away in our cell phones."



Cell phone GPS tracking is used in "limited circumstances" and is used in cases involving "known, dangerous criminals or in the apprehension of fugitives by Law Enforcement Officers (LEO)." State or Federal court approval is needed before using the cell phone tracking technique." "Tracking the location of people's cell phones reveals intimate details of their daily routines and is highly invasive of their privacy," said Catherine Crump, a staff attorney with the ACLU. "The government is violating the Constitution when it fails to get a search warrant before tracking people this way."


In a major ruling, the New York Court of Appeals has held that the police cannot use a GPS device on a suspect’s car without a warrant — ordering a new trial for Scott Weaver, 41, a burglary suspect. In the meantime, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals came to the opposite conclusion: finding no need for a warrant in the use of GPS devices against citizens for any reason by the police.



A Wisconsin court ruled recently that police can now secretly attach a GPS tracking device (like the one pictured above) to your car without a warrant. They can then track your comings and goings without your knowledge, building a case against you to presumably protect your fellow citizens.


The court reasoned that it's okay for cops to spy on citizens like this because "GPS tracking does not involve a search or seizure." The ACLU scoffed at this fantasy, saying it's "a gross violation of one's privacy, and makes the Fourth Amendment a sad clown."


A spokesperson for the Wisconsin branch of the American Civil Liberties Union expressed disappointment in the judge’s conclusion, saying that it was wrong for someone to attach something on another person’s personal property, without court permission.


Wisconsin is one of the first states in the country to pass a law specifically addressing GPS tracking devices, recognizing their growing importance in investigating criminal activity. It might be looked upon as a legal precedent by courts in other states.


What then could make covert GPS tracking illegal? Well, if you are violating the constitutional rights of another person with your tracking that will make it illegal. GPS tracking is unconstitutional when you begin violating their privacy or harassing them with your tracking. Since all covert GPS tracking is pretty much a harassment and violation of your privacy you can pretty much assume that any and all covert GPS tracking undertaken by private citizens is going to be considered illegal.


In the final analysis, covert GPS vehicle tracking is legal in some circumstances and illegal in others. Police, if they have a warrant, are pretty much always able to install secret tracking devices inside vehicles or even track a cell phone. Private citizens, on the other hand, can only employ GPS tracking for their personal property, "THEIR OWN PERSONAL PROPERTY "- whether it is done covertly or not, you can not hire a third party (like a private investigator) to "bug" your husband or wife's cell phone or car !

In testimony before a Senate subcommittee on Wednesday, GAO Director of Strategic Issues Robert Goldenkoff said tens of thousands of temporary census workers were improperly fingerprinted by bureau employees -- including individuals with extensive criminal records.

Friday, May 29, 2009, SARASOTA HOME INVASIONS PROFILED BY PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER, THE PERP HAS MADE NO MISTAKES; IIn testimony before a Senate subcommittee on Wednesday, GAO Director of Strategic Issues Robert Goldenkoff said tens of thousands of temporary census workers were improperly finger-printed by bureau employees -- including individuals with extensive criminal records.

Fingerprinting errors made by U.S. Census Bureau employees may have resulted in the hiring of 200 people with criminal backgrounds to conduct door-to-door canvassing, according to the Government Accountability Office.

"It is possible that more than 200 people with unclassifiable prints had disqualifying criminal records but still worked, and had contact with the public during address canvassing," he said.

Goldenkoff's testimony, part of a larger progress report on the bureau's implementation of the 2010 Census, identified key pitfalls in the hiring of the nearly 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the U.S. -- including "weaknesses in the bureau's information technology."

The bureau implemented fingerprinting for the first time in 2010 to better screen its workers. According to the new guidelines, bureau employees are directed to obtain two sets of fingerprint cards for each prospective worker -- and then send them to the bureau's processing center in Jeffersonville, Ind., where are they scanned and submitted to the FBI. If the candidate is found to have a criminal record, making him ineligible for employment, the bureau is "to either terminate the person immediately or place the individual in nonworking status until the matter is resolved."

If the first set of prints is deemed "unclassifiable," the bureau's processing center must send the second set of fingerprints to the FBI for processing.

Goldenkoff testified that of the 1,800 workers with criminal backgrounds, 750 -- or 42 percent -- were terminated because of their records, which included crimes like rape, manslaughter and child abuse, more from this source................

American Police Force(APF) Says Job Fair Delayed as Hardin Jail Takeover in Limbo
By The Associated Press
Story Published: Oct 8, 2009


BILLINGS, Mont. - A spokeswoman for a California company that had been negotiating to take over management of the Hardin jail says a two-day job fair planned for next week has been delayed.

Becky Shay says it makes no sense for American Police Force to hold the event with the jail takeover in limbo. The 464-bed jail was built as an economic development project, but has not been used since its 2007 completion.
The Two Rivers Authority, the economic development agency that built the jail, initially embraced American Police Force as a savior for the project. However, the jail takeover was put on hold by Hardin officials this week following revelations that the lead figure of American Police Force, Michael Hilton, has an extensive history of fraud in Southern California. His convictions include two grand theft cases and he has civil judgments totaling more than $1.1 million, more from this source....

HARDIN – Michael Hilton, seen as the potential savior of Hardin just two weeks ago, is quickly running out of supporters in the struggling town of 3,500. Hilton is the Serbian-born (note decals above) Californian who has been representing American Police Force as a company interested in leasing Hardin’s empty jail and investing millions in a prison and military training operation.

APF had talked briefly of helping establish a police department in Hardin, and Hilton and several associates showed up 10 days ago in three Mercedes SUVs bearing decals that read “City of Hardin Police Department.” Convery said the commotion caused by APF’s involvement in law enforcement issues forced her to resign as the TRA’s attorney.

Board members said Monday they would have to find a new attorney before considering changes to the contract with APF. They had said before that the contract was approved by the APF and Two Rivers but still needed the signatures of people with U.S. Bank, representing bondholders. Cohen, the man wrongly identified as the director of operations for APF’s planned enterprise in Hardin, said he was still shaking his head Monday. “I feel sorry for everyone up there in Montana,” he said. “He’s (Hilton) scamming everyone up there.” more from this source………..


Mystery 'Police' Force Has Small Montana City on Edge
Thursday, October 08,


When two brand new, shiny black Mercedes SUVs bearing a "Hardin Police Department" logo drove through the main thoroughfare of Hardin, Mont., last week, people took notice. “How many police forces have Mercedes?” said Charlene Warren, a local business owner who has lived in Hardin for more than half a century. “That threw up a red flag.”

And speaking of flags, it did not go unnoticed that the emblem on the sides of the SUVs bore a strong resemblance to the Serbian national flag. Furthermore, those "police department" cars were rolling through Hardin, a small southeastern Montana town of 3,600 that just happens not to have a police department.

Click here for a video.

The luxury vehicles that rolled through town belonged to the American Police Force (APF), a California-based security firm that is drafting a contract that will give it control over a $27 million medium-security prison that was built in Hardin more than two years ago, but has never held any prisoners. But that contract is now on hold as the Montana State Attorney General’s Office investigates APF and the Big Horn County Sheriff's Department enters preliminary talks about incorporating a real police department in Hardin so a similar episode doesn’t occur in the future.


We have covered this story for years now, and for the last month, it’s been one twist and turn from the other” Nick Lough, a reporter at KULR-8 in Billings, Mont., told FOXNews.com.


The latest twist: The owner of APF, Michael Hilton, is a convicted felon, including two convictions in grand theft cases, and an alleged con-artist who, according to some sources, utilizes more than 20 aliases, more from this source.............

Sarasota Home Invasions Suspect Delmer Smith III Arrested, Smith Spent 15 Years in Federal Pen Run by Violent Aryan Brotherhood.


Sarasota Home Invasions Suspect Delmer Smith III Arrested, Smith Spent 15 Years in Federal Pen Run by Violent Aryan Brotherhood.  The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Terre Haute, Indiana, is a medium security facility housing male inmates with an adjacent satellite prison camp that houses minimum security male offenders. It is part of the Terre Haute Federal Correctional Complex (FCC).

Friday, October 09, 2009, Census May Have Hired Violent Criminals to Canvass Your Home in Sarasota from February/09 to April/09, Same Time Frame as Sarasota Home Invasions.

SARASOTA COUNTY - A convicted bank robber who drifted around the area in the past year is the man responsible for a series of home invasions and sexual assaults that shook the region last spring, sheriff’s officials said Monday. In announcing the arrest of 38-year-old Delmer Smith III, authorities said they may have solved as many as a dozen home invasions in which victims, mostly women, were stalked and then attacked while alone in their homes. In one April attack, a Sarasota woman was killed.

Smith, a Michigan native who has lived in Bradenton, Venice and North Port in the past year, was charged with four home invasions in Sarasota County and is the prime suspect in as many as eight others, Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight said at a press conference Monday. Knight and officers from several agencies say they first focused on Smith when he was in a brutal bar fight in Venice. He was not arrested then, but the incident brought Smith to the attention of officers, who later served a search warrant on a home where he lived and reportedly found stolen items that linked him to the home invasions, more from this source.....

Sarasota home invasions suspect Delmer Smith was driving a 2000 Chevrolet SUV with Florida tag #M406CX.

Investigators in Venice initially questioned Delmer Smith following a bar fight. Although he was not arrested or implicated at that point, police chief Julie Williams said Smith's demeanor resonated with officers. "The violence in the bar fight in our community was notable," she said." We never had anyone that violent over nothing in a bar fight." Officers later followed-up with Smith and found an abundance of electronics in Smith's apartment. Knight said those electronics were stolen from the homes that were robbed.

Sheriff Knight said Smith's DNA, which had been taken 15 years ago when he first became a federal prisoner, was not registered in a national database that detectives use to locate potential suspects. Local detectives had to ask that it be added for comparison to the samples they took from he crime scenes, more from this source...

The extreme over the top violence shown by Delmer Smith III, a white male shaved head with trimmed fu-man cho mustache and goatee, in the bar fight in Venice Fl and his 15 year prison term in the Federal prison system run by the Aryan Brotherhood give indications that Delmer Smith most likely is/was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood.

The Aryan Brotherhood, according to the U.S. Department of Justice Web site, is a white supremacist prison gang that boasts about 15,000 members in and out of jail, they rule the Federal prison system. Aryan Brotherhood members make up less than one-tenth of one percent of the nation's prison inmate population, yet the white power gang is responsible for 18% of all prison murders, according to the FBI.


In 1980, the Aryan Brotherhood split into two separate but cooperative factions, one for gang members in federal custody and the other for gang members in state prisons, who had by then proliferated to Colorado, Arizona, Missouri and New Mexico. Indiana State Prison gangs Aryan Brotherhood. The federal faction of the gang formed a three-man "commission" to supervise and direct all Aryan Brotherhood actions inside federal prison, in 1982, the state prison AB faction followed suit.

The Aryan Brotherhood are concerned with White-Supremacy and self-protection from Black and Hispanic gangs. The recent conviction of 4 Aryan Brotherhood members in Santa Ana, California, one of the largest death penalty cases in U.S. history, revealed an allegedly "ruthless" gang who regularly murdered those who opposed the system, growing so out of control that even its own ranking members could not consider themselves safe. Two of the gang members convicted in July's trial, both deemed eligible for the death penalty, had allegedly ordered a 1997 race war at a prison in Lewisburg, Pa. that killed two black inmates. The same two, in addition to another accomplice, murdered inmate Arva Lee Ray at the Lompoc, California, penitentiary in 1989. The trials also revealed that members were inspired by Nietzsche, Machiavelli, and Sun Tzu's "The Art of War."

In 2006, alleged ringleader Barry "The Baron" Mills was put to trial for the murder of two black gang members, along with 3 other alleged leaders, including Tyler Davis "The Hulk" Bingham, Edgar "The Snail" Hevle, and Christopher Overton Gibson, all of whom are already serving time in prison. Mills orchestrated a successful contract murder against two black inmates in a Pennsylvania prison in 1979. Mills also planned a murder against Walter Johnson, an inmate who allegedly punched mafia don John Gotti in the eye in an Illinois prison in 1997. Gotti paid Mills $500,000 to kill Johnson, and Mills, who was staying at a Colorado prison at the time, agreed. However, the contract was never completed, and Gotti died in prison in 2002.

Initially formed for the protection of whites against blacks in prison, the gang gradually moved to criminal enterprise. In prison, they strive to control the sale of drugs, gambling, and "punks," or male prostitutes. According to Parenti, "Racial warfare comes second to business." The Aryan Brotherhood has carried out contract killings for the Mexican Mafia, but racist beliefs prevent members from consorting with African Americans, including even taking a cigarette or a candy bar from them.

Released or paroled members have smuggled money or drugs into prison, including marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines. The creed by which the Brotherhood members operate under is:
"I will stand by my brother

My brother will come before all others
My life is forfeited should I fail my brother
I will honor my brother in peace and war"
They also live by the motto, "in for life and out by death."

Ex-con Delmer Smith III Arrested in Sarasota Home Invasions, But There Is A Missing Link, How Did He Know Homes Contained Middle Aged Women Living Alone North of Clark Rd and South of Webber?

Ex-con Delmer Smith III Arrested in Sarasota Home Invasions, But There Is A Missing Link, How Did He Know Homes Contained Middle Aged Women Living Alone North of Clark Rd and South of Webber?  Ex-con Delmer Smith is the muscle, not the brains of this operation, who fed him information?

It has been confirmed that a serial attacker of women is/was at large in the Sarasota Bradenton area who brutalizes his mostly female victims.  The Sarasota male perp would be single and living alone (loner no friends), he would be 35 to 53 years of age and he appears to work outside in the day time, working the Sarasota neighborhoods as he blends in.

Ex-con Delmer Smith III is 38 years old, he is from Michigan, he was in the joint for 15 years and new to the Sarasota area in the fall of 2008, he is not internet savvy (there was no internet when he went in) so who fed him detailed information on middle aged female occupants living alone in middle class neighborhoods and why were the Sarasota attacks all confined to a specific area between Clark Rd and Webber ???

Sarasota home invasions suspect Delmer Smith was driving a 2000 Chevrolet SUV with Florida tag #M406CX.
The attacker was targeting mostly middle-aged women, who lived alone, creeping into their homes or yards and sneaking up behind them. He strikes them in the head, usually binds them with cords or rope he finds in their homes, then beats them again as he grabs cash, credit cards, jewelry and electronics (lap top computers) but robbery does not appear to be the motive.

All of the attacks in Sarasota occurred North of Clark Road aka Stickney Point Rd and South of Webber St and centered on Proctor Road. Murdered Georgeann Smith on Jo-An Drive in Sarasota went to the Bee Ridge Baptist Church on Proctor Rd. I strongly feel that the Sarasota perp has access to information online as to who lives in the homes that he targets.

The home invasions in Sarasota and Manatee counties happened over a four-month period from February to May, but then the crimes with the same pattern seemed to stop (May 26th). Authorities are not sure why, but speculate that Smith might have moved and could be responsible for crime in other jurisdictions. Smith is not a suspect in the recent murder of Kathleen Briles during a home invasion in her Terra Ceia home, authorities said.

Friday, May 29, 2009, SARASOTA HOME INVASIONS PROFILED BY PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER, THE PERP HAS MADE NO MISTAKES


SARASOTA COUNTY - Authorities have charged a 38-year-old man with attacking at least five women in their homes during a series of nearly a dozen home invasions that left the region on edge for months.



Delmer Smith III, who is from Michigan but has lived recently in Bradenton, Venice and North Port, has been charged with several crimes, including home invasion, false imprisonment and sexual battery, authorities said at a press conference today.



Smith is a possible suspect in several other cases, including the April 5 murder of Georgann Smith, 37, in her home in the 2100 block of Jo-An Drive in south Sarasota; he has not been charged in that crime.

Smith’s arrest culminates a long investigation by multiple agencies across the region. He was located as a suspect after a violent bar fight in Venice in early September, where his involvement triggered officials to begin looking into Smith as a suspect in several crimes.


Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight announced Smith’s arrest in connection with the local attacks at a press conference this afternoon. Representatives from several other agencies were present.


Authorities say Smith stalked women, scouting their homes, and waiting until they were alone before attacking. Some were tied up, gagged and beaten, more from this source.....................

Sarasota home invasions suspect Delmer Smith was driving a 2000 Chevrolet SUV with Florida tag #M406CX.


Manatee county authorities believe Smith may also have been the attacker in home invasions and other assaults in unincorporated Manatee and the city of Bradenton.


Bradenton Police Department Deputy Chief William Tokajer said Smith is a suspect in the Feb. 16 attack on a 52-year-old female jogger near Riverview Boulevard, and an April 20 home invasion on 32nd Street Northwest in which a couple in their early 60s were bound and beaten.


Steube said his detectives are investigating whether Smith was responsible for three home invasions in unincorporated Manatee.

Delmer Smith III, 38, was arrested Sept. 10 on a federal warrant for a violation of probation after a bar fight in Venice, and he was subsequently linked to four home invasions:
Feb. 22 at 3534 Osage Terrace
March 7 at 1946 Bougainvillea Street

March 14 at 5240 Carmilfra Way

May 26 at 20 Whispering Sands Drive


They also are examining possible connections between Smith and the slaying of Briles in her Terra Ceia home on Aug. 3.


Law enforcement in Manatee and in Sarasota have been working together to investigate a string of as many as 11 home invasions and other attacks. In most of the incidents, the victims were women, more from this source.............

Smith has a lengthy history of crime. He was released from federal prison in Michigan in September of 2008 after being convicted of armed bank robbery. He served 15 years of a 54-year sentence.  Ex-con Delmer Smith is the muscle, not the brains of this operation, who fed him information?

Smith married a woman he had been communicating with in Bradenton. Detectives think he lived in Bradenton until he was involved in a nasty bar fight. "He did not get arrested from the bar fight, but the violence involved in the bar fight in our community was notable. We did just not ever have anybody that was that violent over nothing in a bar fight," says Julie Williams of the Venice Police Department.

The home invasions in Sarasota and Manatee counties happened over a four-month period from February to May, but then the crimes with the same pattern seemed to stop (May 26th).


Friday, May 29, 2009, SARASOTA HOME INVASIONS PROFILED BY PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER, THE PERP HAS MADE NO MISTAKES; The attacker in the Home Invasions in Sarasota and Bradenton Fl has been described by victims as a white male, 5′10″ to 6′ 0″ tall, about 175 to 185 lbs, dark hair, speaks in street slang, some victims thought he was black by the way he talks, he wears a black ski mask, long sleeve shirts, gloves and has made statements that he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit.

Usually in serial attacker cases like this, the Sarasota male perp would have recently moved into the area (Jan 2009) and had numerous prior address’s around the country, a drifter. The Sarasota male perp would be single and living alone (loner no friends), he would be 35 to 53 years of age and he appears to work outside in the day time, working the Sarasota neighborhoods as he blends in.

Sarasota Mosque That Raised Money for Families of Suicide Bombers And Hosted Terrorists Has A New Larger Mosque Coming Up Out Of The Ground.


Sarasota Mosque That Raised Money for Families of Suicide Bombers And Hosted Terrorists Has A New Larger Mosque Coming Up Out Of The Ground.
On the government witness list for the trial of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist leader Sami Al-Arian was Muneer Arafat most recently the Imam of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR) where terrorist Dr. Rafiq Sabir shows up in 2002.



BOP..Inmate Locator - Locate Federal inmate Sami Al-Arian.

Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR) made national headlines when one of its congregants, Rafiq Abdus Sabir, was caught plotting to go overseas and aid members of Al-Qaeda. In addition, one of ICBR's current Directors, Bassem Alhalabi, was a research assistant for Al-Arian and published materials with Al-Arian at the University of South Florida (USF).


Before arriving in Boca Raton, Muneer Arafat was the Imam of the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) mosque. The mosque is located an hour south of the Islamic Academy of Florida (on Lockwood Ridge Rd in Sarasota Fl), one of the institutions that Al-Arian was using to funnel money to the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jiahd (PIJ).


Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) featured repeated guest appearances by Al-Arian terrorist colleagues Mazen Al-Najjar and Hussam Jubara. Al-Najjar, who was a Director of IAF, was deported from the United States in August of 2002.



BOP..Inmate Locator - Locate Federal inmate Mazen Al-Najjar


Jubara, who co-founded the Islamic Concern Project (ICP) with Al-Arian, plead guilty in August of 2003 to lying on immigration forms.



Al-Arian, himself, was a guest at ISSB, in May of 2001. At this time, Al-Arian was actively raising funds for the families of suicide bombers. Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton was also active in raising funds for these families. In its January 2001 edition of its monthly newsletter THE FAITH, under the title 'Aqsa Victims (2),' it is written: "The second payment of donations for Aqsa victims were sent [sic] the martyrs families and needy in the West Bank in Palestine. Alhamdullah we managed to send $4,000 by one of our dedicated brothers."


Joe Kaufman, Chairman of Americans Against Hate, stated, "Given the fact that Al-Arian's colleagues were heavily involved with ISSB, and given the fact that ISSB was raising money for the families of martyrs, it is imperative that law enforcement focus much of its efforts on ISSB."


From a JTTF investigation started in Sarasota during February 2003 with information provided by private investigator Bill Warner comes the following details, Monday, July 24, 2006. FLORIDA "HOLY MAN" MUNEER ARAFAT TERROR LINKS;


Muneer Kazem Arafat, Imam at Sarasota Mosque and then Boca Raton Mosque, was born in Kuwait on 5/10/1963 and the family eventually moved to Jordan. Muneer Arafat claims he is a Jordanian born in Kuwait of Palestinian decent BUT not related to Yasser Arafat.

Muneer Kazem Arafat was arrested in November 2002 in Sarasota for overstaying his visa. A Federal official from St. Louis was present for his arrest, weeks later he was released.



BOP..Inmate Locator - Locate Federal inmate Muneer Kazem Arafat

Arafat first began his career in the US in St. Louis and Columbia, MO. In St. Louis he became a well-known lecturer at different Masjids and built up quite a following. He gave lectures at local mosques that almost exclusively focused on jihad week in and week out and this got him into trouble with Sheikh Muhammad Nur of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis who at one point banned him from giving lectures at the Gateway Masjid. They would butt heads over and over again about other issues including Arafat’s dishonesty about his religious education and immigration status.


Muneer Arafat is an al-Qaeda operative, he is paid member of the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights (CDLR), same as Tarik Hamdi is a CDLR member and Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel, Muneer Arafat's ex-roomate, was a CDLR member, same as Rafiq Sabir the "Doc" who was arrested at the Boca Raton Mosque that Arafat was the Imam.


Two al Qaeda operatives, Ziyad Khaleel and Tarik Hamdi, have been involved with both the CDLR and the ARC. The Advice and Reformation Committee (or “ARC”) and the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights (or “CDLR”) are both Saudi-dissident groups with ties to Osama bin Laden. Both organizations seek to overthrow the Saudi government to replace the regime with an even more strict brand of Islam. Khaleel had links to more radical elements. He advertised his modest apartment near the University of Missouri as the local headquarters for the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights.

Charges against Tarik Hamdi focus on a series of alleged omissions in Hamdi's naturalization papers, as well as information he submitted on mortgage-loan applications.  According to the indictment in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Tarik Hamdi did not state on his naturalization form that in 1994 he had been the U.S. representative for the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights in Saudi Arabia, a London-based organization that has embraced many of Osama bin Laden's views. 

Hamdi has been under federal investigation for several years, stemming from his work at the International Institute of Islamic Thought in Virginia.  Hamdi was also accused of committing wire fraud by receiving mortgage loans by inflating his income on the applications. If found guilty of all the charges, he could face up to 20 years in jail, court officials said.

Muneer Arafat, the Iman at the Islamic Center of Boca Raton and a frequent visitor in Sarasota Fl, had a roommate and associate by the name of Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziad Sadaqa in Columbia MO, see following information;  Ziyad Khaleel AKA Ziad Sadaqa, received $6,000.00 from Yasser Arafat and the Palestine National Liberation Movement--Nablus Movement, to further his University studies (computer studies).

Ziyad Khaleel AKA Ziyad Sadaqa was at the Univ. of Missouri and was a roommate of Muneer Arafat in the St. Louis MO area during 1996 to 1999. Public records show U.S. addresses for Khaleel going back to 1993 in Columbia, Michigan and ORLANDO Florida.


Ziyad Khaleel purchased a $7,500.00 satellite phone and 400 min. of time and had it sent to Osama bin-Laden for use in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. In May 1998, Ziyad Sadaqa aka ziyad Khaleel bought a battery pack for the phone, and shipped it to Bin Laden via a man in Washington (Tarik Hamdi), prosecutors said.  Osama bin Laden uses a satellite phone to direct al-Qaeda’s operations.

The phone—a Compact M satellite phone, about the size of a laptop computer—was purchased by a student in Virginia named Ziyad Khaleel for $7,500 using the credit card of a British man named Saad al-Fagih. After purchasing the phone, Khaleel sent it to Khalid al-Fawwaz, al-Qaeda’s unofficial press secretary in London (see Early 1994-September 23, 1998). Al-Fawwaz then shipped it to bin Laden in Afghanistan. [CNN, 4/16/2001] It appears US intelligence actually tracks the purchase as it occurs (see November 1996-Late December 1999), probably because an older model satellite phone bin Laden has is already being monitored (see Early 1990s). Bin Laden’s phone (873682505331) is believed to be used by other top al-Qaeda leaders as well, including Ayman al-Zawahiri and Mohammad Atef. Al-Fawwaz also buys satellite phones for other top al-Qaeda leaders around the same time. Though the calls made on these phones are encrypted, the NSA is able to intercept and decrypt them. As one US official will put it in early 2001, “codes were broken.”


Ziyad Khaleel set up numerous web sites for the Palestine movement and especially Hamas in Orlando Fl, from 1999 to 2000 approx. he also shows up in Sarasota Fl on several occasinos to meet with Muneer Arafat at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB).


"Khalil Ziyad" is actually known in the United States as Ziyad Khaleel (a.k.a. Ziyad Sadaqa, a.k.a Ziyad Abdulrahman). Public records reveal that he was associated with a variety of addresses in Orlando, Detroit, Columbia (Missouri), and Denver. Khaleel was also responsible for administering a variety of the most radical Islamic Web sites on the Internet.


At various points in the late 1990s, according to Internic/Network Solutions database records, Khaleel was the administrative and billing contact of the official Hamas Web site (http://www.palestine-info.net/  ), the Algerian Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) Web site (http://www.fisalgeria.org/  ), the Web site of Liberty for the Muslim World (http://www.lmw.org/  ), and the Palestine Times Web site (http://www.ptimes.com/ ).

"Holy Man" Muneer Arafat shows up in Sarasota/Venice Fl area in March of 2000, Mohamed Atta and some of the 9/11 Hijackers show up in the Sarasota/Venice area in June 2000, small world !



From open court records during the Sami al-arian trial in Tampa it has been revealed that Muneer Arafat had become an informant for the US Department of Justice and they had paid him $35,000, but was Arafat working both sides of the street at the same time ?



Every place Muneer Arafat shows up so do Al-Qaeda agents, he was the roommate of Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel in 1999, Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 terrorists followed him to the Sarasota/Venice area in 2000 and a member of the Mosque he ran in Boca Raton, Dr. Rafiq Sabir, joined Al-Qaeda and was arrested last year on terrorism charges.
