Police shoot Somali Al-Shabaab Muslim Hit-man armed with knife, ax at cartoonist Kurt Westergaard’s home in Denmark.



COPENHAGEN — Police shot a Somali man wielding an ax and a knife as he tried to break into the home of an artist whose cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb-shaped turban outraged the Muslim world, the head of Denmark’s intelligence agency said Saturday.


Jakob Schaif said in a statement that a 28-year-old man with ties to al-Qaida (Al-Shabaab in Somalia) attempted to enter Kurt Westergaard's home in Aarhus Friday night. But Westergaard pressed an alarm and police arrived minutes later.


The attack on the artist, whose rendering was among 12 that led to the torching of Danish diplomatic offices in predominantly Muslim countries in 2006, was “terror related,” Scharf said. He said the man would be charged with attempted murder.



Westergaard, whose 5-year-old granddaughter was in the home on a sleepover, sought shelter in a specially made safe room when the suspect broke a window of the home, said Preben Nielsen of the Aarhus police.


Officers arrived two minutes later and tried to arrest the assailant, who wielded an ax at a police officer. The officer then shot the man in a knee and a hand, authorities said. Nielsen said the suspect’s life was not in danger, more from this source.............


Target: Police outside Westergaard's home in Aarhus last night after a Somali man armed with an axe and a knife tried to break in .


"The arrested man has, according to PET's information, close relations to the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab and Al Qaeda leaders in eastern Africa," Scharf said. PET is Denmark's intelligence agency.


Scharf said without elaborating that the man is suspected of having been involved in terror-related activities in east Africa. He had been under PET's surveillance but not in connection with Westergaard, he said


The man, who had a permit to stay in Denmark, was to be charged Saturday with attempted murder for trying to kill Westergaard and the police officer, Scharf said.



The suspect got inside the home of the 75-year-old cartoonist in Denmark's second largest city, 125 miles northwest of Copenhagen.


Westergaard could not be reached for comment. However, he told his employer, the Jyllands-Posten daily, that the assailant shouted "revenge" and "blood" as he tried to enter the bathroom where Westergaard and the child had sought shelter.


"My grandchild did fine," Westergaard said, according to the newspaper's Web edition. "It was scary. It was close. Really close. But we did it." Westergaard was "quite shocked" but was not injured, Nielsen said, more from this source............



Kurt Westergaard has received death threats and is the subject of an alleged assassination plot.


Muslims (photo above) protest against the publication of cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper, in Calcutta, India, in 2006. The case 'again confirms the terror threat that is directed at Denmark and against the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard in particular.


In October, terror charges were brought against two Chicago men whose initial plan called for attacks on Jyllands-Posten's offices. The plan was later changed to just killing the paper's former cultural editor and Westergaard.



In 2008, Danish police arrested two Tunisian men suspected of plotting to murder Westergaard. Neither suspect was prosecuted. One of them was deported and the other was released Monday after an immigration board rejected PET's efforts to expel him from Denmark.

HONOR KILLER YASER SAID WHERE IS HE, NO LEADS IN 4 YEARS?



Put Yaser Said Behind Bars, it was 4 years on Jan 1, 2012 that he slaughtered his two daughters in the back seat of his cab.  Yaser Said is on the run. Someone is sending him cash to a NY P.O. Box address. Someone has provided him with a job driving cab (see New York City links). Someone has provided him with a place to live. The brothers of Yaser Said and the Muslim underground is hiding Yaser Said.  Yaser Said has always driven cab, he may be working in New York City.

"Honor Killer”...... Yaser Said and his three younger brothers are very close. They take care of each other. This is as much a religious mandate as it is familial. Muslims brothers take care of each other.  I suspect it is Yaser’s brothers who have set Yaser Said up in the Muslim underground of New York City. They have extensive NY connections and own real estate together in Texas, New York and even Indiana.

Yaser Abdel Said is wanted for murder by the FBI. On January 1, 2008, Said took his two teenage daughters for a ride in his taxi cab, under the guise of taking them to get something to eat. He drove them to Irving, Texas, where he allegedly shot both girls to death.

Yaser Abdel Said
Yaser Abdel Said recently had a birthday, his DOB 01-27-1957, he is now 55 years old, his Social Security Number 456-67-XXXX was Issued in Texas 1984. Yaser Said has driven taxi cabs for a living all of his life, Said has dark brown spots of various sizes on both sides of his neck, but primarily the right side.  Sociopath and sexual predator, that is Yaser Abdel Said. See my post Wednesday, November 26, 2008, Sociopath Sexual Predator; Profile of Yaser Abdel Said, the “Honor Killer” Hiding Out With the Muslim Underground.

PROFILE; Yaser Abdel Said, he plays everybody and the American welfare system, controlling, a constant sexual predator, ultra macho outward appearance, always claims to have a weapon (even if he doesn’t) constant fear factor in his presence, non-communicative in groups unknown, classic sociopath, extremely dangerous, confides in his brothers very close to them, plans with them, probably not so much the son, Islam, as he uses him as a tool (the son Islam is borderline bi-polar), not an equal.

On the day of the murder 1/01/2008, Patricia Said took Amina from her boyfriends house to meet Yaser at his cab, near the Said rental house, Amina was in the front seat of the cab, they (the girls) never went into the Said house.  On the day of the murder 1/01/2008, Yaser Abdel Said took the Egyptian Passport and the $9,000 in cash and nothing else and then took the girls for a ride in the cab.

Yaser Abdel Said and his brother set up a post office box in Covington, Texas (where the families once lived on a compound) on November 15, 2007, the same day a separate P.O. Box was being set up near property owned by the Said's in a small town in Shrub Oaks, New York. There has been activity at the post office box in Shrub Oaks NY set up by one of the Said brothers on November 15, 2007 just days before the murder of the two desperate young girls. The renting and use of P.O. Boxes is standard operating procedure for those who wish to go underground and conceal their home address.



After Yaser Said allegedly murdered older daughter Amina in cold blood and then pumped nine bullets into his tiny daughter, Sarah Said, he intended to flee the country (which would explain why he parked so near the airport). What he did not count on was Sarah’s super human ability to make a 911 call naming her father and pleading for her life, the cell phone signal identifying where they were. Yasir was forced to move the bodies and his plan unraveled from there.

When he moved the girls bodies to a deserted part of the Omni hotel parking lot, Yasir was covered in blood and too far from anywhere to travel on foot. Someone had to have come and picked him up. Who? Who helped Yasir that night? Who did Yaser Said call on his cell phone? Who? Have police checked those cell phone records? Yaser Said made the lives of his wonderful, athletic, top honors daughters a living hell. This sexual sociopath raped them in their youth and beat them fiercely as a regular diet.

Apparently, Said has ties to Jihadis tied to al qaeda. That’s who is helping to hide him, the Muslim underground. It’s no wonder Yasir told his wife, every time he goes to the shooting range, he is shooting an Americans. It is more than curious that Yaser Abdel Said’s brother just happens to link to an addresses in Mohegan Lake New York and Shrub Oak, New York when Yaser is on the run.

Shrub Oak NY is about 40 min ride via train from the Bronx section of New York City, which has 30 Islamic Centers or Mosques some with ties to the Al-Muhajiroun (more on radicalized NY mosques here.) There appears to be a pattern with the Saids of hiding their locations from public records

Patricia Said had taken $5,000 when she split on or about 12/25/2007 with the two girls, Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18, when she returned on or about 1/01/2008, she brought back most of the $5,000. Yaser Said is 6′2′ tall and 185 lbs., Said has dark hair and a mustache and always wears dark sunglasses, both indoors and outside. He frequents Denny’s and I-Hop restaurants and smokes Marlboro Light 100’s cigarettes.

Yaser Said has ties to New York, Texas, and Egypt. He also has Egyptian and United States’ passports. Additionally, Said is known to carry a handgun in his taxi cab at all times. It has also been reported that Said always carries a weapon with him, to include knives.

Detroit terror attack: 'There are many more like me,' bomber warns that others will bring down airplanes over U.S. cities.


Detroit terror attack: 'There are many more like me,' bomber warns that others will bring down airplanes over U.S. cities.


Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, had been banned from entering the UK after he applied for a student visa in May to study at a bogus college, Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, has confirmed.

Then, six weeks ago, his family in Nigeria contacted US security officials to express “concerns” that he had become radicalised after he “disappeared” to the al-Qaeda stronghold of Yemen, resulting in him being put on a US anti-terror database.

US aviation security system failed, Napolitano admits


But because the two countries failed to share their intelligence, neither was aware of the full picture about Abdulmutallab, who hid a potentially devastating explosive device under his clothes and tried to detonate it as an Airbus with 289 people on board approached Detroit on Christmas Day.


Abdulmutallab has given a defiant warning to US investigators, telling them: “There are more just like me who will strike soon.”

Dozens of Islamic militants from Britain are thought to have travelled to Yemen in recent months, where the security services fear they are being trained by al-Qaeda bomb-makers to launch further attacks against Western targets.


Last night a group calling itself al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) claimed responsibility for the attempted suicide bombing on Northwest Airlines flight 253.

In a separate statement, AQAP had earlier vowed revenge for military operations carried out by the Yemeni government earlier this month, which were backed by the US, in which the group claims 50 people died. It said: “We will not let Muslim women and children’s blood be spilled without taking revenge.”

Abdulmutallab, the privately-educated son of one of Nigeria’s most prominent bankers, managed to smuggle his bomb aboard the aircraft by strapping a condom filled with the high explosive PETN to the inside of his leg and then attempting to detonate it using a syringe filled with a liquid chemical. The PETN powder caught fire but did not explode, sparing the lives of all those on board.

Investigators are worried that AQAP has developed what is effectively an “undetectable bomb” involving PETN that can only be found by using expensive and intrusive full body scanners at airports, with huge implications for airport security, more from this source...........

Better airport scanners delayed by privacy fears, Technology in place at only 19 U.S. airports, private investigator Bill Warner says Americans may have to suck it up to protect against terrorists.


MSNBC, WASHINGTON - High-tech security scanners that might have prevented the Christmas Day attempt to blow up a jetliner have been installed in only a small number of airports around the world, in large part because of privacy concerns over the way the machines see through clothing.

The technology is in place at 19 U.S. airports, while European officials have generally limited it to test runs.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian accused of trying to ignite explosives aboard a Northwest Airlines jet as it was coming in for a landing in Detroit, did not go through such a scan where his flight began, at Amsterdam's Schipol airport.The full-body scanner "could have been helpful in this case, absolutely," said Evert van Zwol, head of the Dutch Pilots Association.

But the technology has raised significant concerns among privacy watchdogs because it can show the body's contours with embarrassing clarity. Those fears have slowed the introduction of the machines.

'Virtual strip searches'
Jay Stanley, public education director for the American Civil Liberties Union's Technology and Liberty Program, said the machines essentially perform "virtual strip searches that see through your clothing and reveal the size and shape of your body."


Abdulmutallab passed through a routine security check at the gate in Amsterdam before boarding, officials said. He is believed to have tucked into his trousers or underwear a small bag holding PETN explosive powder, and possibly a liquid detonator.

Because such items won't set off metal detectors, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, part of the Department of Homeland Security, has begun installing two types of advanced scanning machines that provide a more detailed picture, more from this source.....

Keeping flying passengers safe involves many tools, By SCOTT CANON and MATT CAMPBELL, The Kansas City Star

We have Richard Reid and his bungled attempt to down a jet with exploding footwear in 2001 to thank for making us remove our shoes at the airport.

Now that a Nigerian allegedly stashed the same chemical explosive in his underwear to sabotage a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day, must we remove our shorts as well?

“Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that,” said Mayer Nudell, a security consultant formerly of the Institute on Counter-Terrorism. “The key is finding methods that are effective and not just cosmetic, which is what we’ve been doing too much of lately.”

The most obvious fix is in the pipeline. The Transportation Security Administration has been deploying millimeter-wave sensors that perform virtual strip searches to produce something imagined in those X-ray glasses advertisements that once appeared in the back of comic books.


Because they are regarded as more thorough, the full-body scanners likely will replace so-called puffer machines that blow air over a passenger and look for traces of the nitrogen found in most explosives. They also could replace hand-held sniffers and swab collectors used to look for evidence of bomb-making material.

Still, the body scanners have also been derided as an invasion of privacy because they give strangers working in security a way to peer through travelers’ garments.

Ways to make flying more secure cost time, money, private investigator Bill Warner quoted in the Kansas City Star and Cleveland.com



THE KANSAS CITY STAR, MO. BY SCOTT CANON AND MATT CAMPBELL
1 hour, 20 minutes ago


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- We have Richard Reid and his bungled attempt to down a jet with exploding footwear in 2001 to thank for making us remove our shoes at the airport. Now that a Nigerian allegedly stashed the same chemical explosive in his underwear to sabotage a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day, must we remove our shorts as well?


"Let's hope it doesn't come to that," said Mayer Nudell, a security consultant formerly of the Institute on Counter-Terrorism. "The key is finding methods that are effective and not just cosmetic, which is what we've been doing too much of lately." The most obvious fix is already in the pipeline. The Transportation Security Administration has been deploying millimeter-wave sensors that perform virtual strip searches to produce something imagined in those X-ray glasses advertisements that once appeared in the back of comic books.

The full-body scanners reveal an image akin to a photo negative and can reveal what metal detectors can't -- most anything under your clothing. Some 40 of the $170,000 machines have already been deployed at 19 airports. Six of the airports have such a machine for each main passenger screening. The remaining 34 machines are set aside for follow-up checks at 13 airports.


In October, the government ordered another 30 full-body scanners. Analysts said the Christmas scare, when fellow passengers stopped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from fully igniting the explosive material sewn into his underwear on a flight from Amsterdam, could accelerate the use of such technology.

Because they are regarded as more thorough, experts say, the full-body scanners likely will replace "puffer" machines that blow air over a passenger and look for traces of the nitrogen found in most explosives. They also could replace handheld sniffers and swab collectors used to look for evidence of bomb-making material. Still, the body scanners have also been derided as an invasion of privacy because they give strangers working in security a way to peer through travelers' garments.

Even as the federal government took new steps Monday to study gaps in the system, some initial steps to more tightly control airline passengers after the incident on the Delta/Northwest flight appeared to be in retreat.



PETN (and TATP) is a chemical explosive that is not detected by the magnetometers -- metal detectors -- common at most airline security checkpoints. But there are other methods of detection.  (the white powder in the video is TATP)


One is a puffer machine that blows air onto passengers and then analyzes the residues. The TSA reportedly spent about $30 million on 207 of the machines in 2004 but only deployed 94 of them.

Hunt for terror cell behind Christmas Day suicide attack as Home Secretary reveals jet bomber 'did not act alone', Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab went to the East London Mosque linked to al-Muhajiroun.


Hunt for terror cell behind Christmas Day suicide attack as Home Secretary reveals jet bomber 'did not act alone', Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab went to the East London Mosque linked to al-Muhajiroun.

Home Secretary Alan Johnson today declared he did not believe the Christmas Day airline bomber was acting alone. British security services are now hunting for possible accomplices of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as they probe his links in the UK.

Mr Johnson said: 'We don't know yet whether it was a single-handed plot or (there were) other people behind it - I suspect it's the latter rather than the former.' The minister also confirmed this morning that Abdulmutallab had been put on a UK watch list after he was refused a student visa following an application to study at a bogus college.

Scotland Yard and MI5 are delving into Abdulmutallab's London background amid claims that he was radicalised during his time studying in Britain. They are also investigating whether he contacted radical Muslims here, according to reports.

Mohammed Mutallab, his cousin, claims he was radicalised here. It was also claimed he visited the East London Mosque, in Whitechapel, which has faced criticism for hosting hardline Islamic preachers.

Earlier this year, the mosque was the venue for a video lecture by radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki with a poster depicting New York in flames who allegedly inspired the Fort Hood gunman Major Nidal Hasan., more from this source........

Ibrahim Dremali has had an eventful life He grew up in terrorist-saturated Gaza, where many of his family still live...Ibrahim Dremali was educated at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, where the school's Grand imam, Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi, has issued Fatwas in favor of violent Jihad against America and in support of suicide bombings. It is at Al-Azhar that Dremali was said to have been indoctrinated into a militant organization.

Ibrahim Dremali fled the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, possibly in anticipation of the arrest of one of his congregants, Rafiq Sabir, a now-convicted Al Qaeda operative, and set up shop in Des Moines Iowa where he became the imam of the Islamic Center of Des Moines and founded an Islamic school called New Horizons

The publicity material for the all-day event 'The End Of Time" (11:00 am to 7:30 pm) appears to be a clear reference to the attacks on New York, and features meteors raining down on Manhattan, setting fire to the city and shattering the Statue of Liberty.

Flight 253 Jihadist Defended by CAIR and they ask to "avoid profiling" following attempted bombing, WTF, secondary search all Muslim males.


Flight 253 Jihadist Defended by CAIR and they ask to "avoid profiling" following attempted bombing, WTF, secondary search all Muslim males !


Tampa, FL -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is asking airline passengers, crews, and security personnel to avoid ethnic and religious "profiling" in the wake of the attempted bombing on Christmas Day.

CAIR made that call following the incidents in Phoenix and Detroit Sunday. "While everyone supports robust airline security measures, racial and religious profiling are in fact counterproductive and can lead to a climate of insecurity and fear," said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper, more from this lunatic ..............


Time to Profile Airline Passengers ? Not all Muslims are Terrorists but all the Terrorists have been Muslims............secondary search all Muslim males.
The British Department for Transport reportedly is seeking to introduce passenger profiling that includes taking religious background into account. News from British airports indicates that this has already begun – sometimes even by fellow passengers.


Three conclusions emerge from this discussion. First, because Islamist terrorists are all Muslims, there does need to be a focus on Muslims. Second, such notions as "Muslim-only lines" at airports are infeasible; rather, intelligence must drive efforts to root out Muslims with an Islamist agenda.

Third, the chances of Muslim-focused profiling being widely implemented remain negligible. As the same Wall Street Journal editorial notes, "the fact that we may have come within a whisker of losing 3,000 lives over the Atlantic still isn't preventing political correctness from getting in the way of smarter security."


Noting the limited impact that losing 3,000 lives had in 2001 and building on my "education by murder" hypothesis (Daniel Pipes) — that people wake up to the problem of radical Islam only when blood is flowing in the streets — I predict that effective profiling will only come into effect when many more Western lives, say 100,000, have been lost.

Private Investigator Bill Warner On The Al-Muhajiroun Group In London and Queens NY And Lnks to Terrorists Like Flight 253 Bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab.

Private Investigator Bill Warner On The Al-Muhajiroun Group In London and Queens NY And Lnks to Terrorists Like Flight 253 Bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab.

Terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab spent at least 3 years in London and lived in a posh West London neighborhood, he attended the University College London and studied mechanical engineering there between September 2005 and June 2008.

The problem of radical Islam on British university campuses is entrenched, and any attempts to address the problem are met with whines of "Islamophobia" from Muslims and leftists. In October 2006, a lecture was held at Staffordshire University, entitled "The true word of God - the Koran or the Bible." The lecture was given by a former member of Al-Muhajiroun (terror group).

The London School of Economics was a locus for Islamist terror recruitment yet London universities are now rife with individuals who do not seek to share common values of liberty and democracy. In July 2005, it was reported by the National Union of Students that Al-Muhajiroun and Hizb ut-Tahrir members were still trying to recruit members from Scottish universities, using "front" names to avoid detection.

On August 10, 2006, it was revealed that a massive plot, involving about twenty British Muslims, had been halted. This plot had involved a plan to smuggle liquid explosives onto several US-bound airlines. These were to be reassembled into bombs on board flights, in the manner first outlined by Ramzi Yousef in 1995, in his notorious "Operation Bojinka". One of the suspects in this plot was 22-year old Waheed Zaman from Walthamstow, north-east London, who was head of the Islamic Society at London Metropolitan University, more from this source.

'Al-Muhajiroun are still a threat because Bakri's followers continue to operate under different names giving leaflets out at mosques and universities,' said Dr Irfan al-Alawi, director of the Centre for Islamic Pluralism. 'Bakri continues to preach his sermons via an internet chatroom from his exile, which means his evil ideology is still being practised by his followers.'


Exclusive: Al Muhajiroun – Vigilantes of Islam, Adrian Morgan

Al-Muhajroun has an Internet presence, it is called "Islam 4 UK." At the end of May this year (2009), this group made an announcement on its website: "...For almost a decade it struggled in its quest to re-establish the mighty Islamic State and moreover see the black flag of Islam fly high over 10 Downing Street; it also strived to confront the ills of society and invite the masses to the Deen of al-Islam as a complete way of life, and was extremely successful in doing so..... However, we would like to declare that after almost 15 years since the establishment of Al-Muhajiroun, and 5 years since its disbandment, Al-Muhajiroun is to be re-launched in the United Kingdom and to resume its activities as normal..." (terrorism).

WASHINGTON; An official briefed on the attack on a Detroit airliner by Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab said Saturday the U.S. has known for at least two years that the suspect in the attack could have terrorist ties (Al-Muhajiroun).

The official told The Associated Press that the suspect, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, has been on a list that includes people with known or suspected contact or ties to a terrorist or terrorist organization (Al-Muhajiroun).

The Nigerian man arrested Friday for trying to destroy Northwest Airlines Flight 253, Umar Farouk Abdul Mattallab, is being investigated by London authorities. Officers from the Metropolitan Police — the force is involved in most of the major terrorism investigations in Britain — went in and out of an imposing white stone apartment block in a well-to-do area of central London. A police spokeswoman said the force was carrying out searches in connection with the incident in Detroit, but would not say if the searches at the building were connected.

The seven-story building in a posh West London neighborhood where Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab lived is a stone's throw from London's busy Oxford Street shopping area. It was adorned with ornate carvings on its facade and antique lamps flank an imposing front door.


A spokesman at London's Central Mosque, one of London's largest, said Mutallab was not known in the mosque. Britain has been at the center of several international terror plots since 2005 and has been a recruiting hotbed for militants (Al-Muhajiroun).
Al-Muhajiroun became the incubator of a global terror network that played a decisive role in radicalising the five 'fertiliser bomb' plotters jailed for life for planning a multiple bombing campaign at targets that included the Bluewater shopping centre in Kent, the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London and Britain's domestic gas network.

The deadliest attack occurred in 2005 when four suicide bombers killed themselves and 52 rush hour commuters. Three of the bombers — Europe's first suicide attack — had Pakistani origins while another was a Muslim convert with ties to Jamaica.
Mohammed Siddique Khan, an al-Muhajiroun convert and the ringleader of the 7/7 plot that killed 52 people in London, learnt his murderous skills at the Malakand training camp hidden in Pakistan's North West Frontier Province.

Other Britons at the cap in the summer of 2003 included Omar Khyam, ringleader of the fertiliser bombers. He attended the camp with Saladhuddin Amin, later to play a key role in the plot. Along with scores of other militants the pair practised making explosives, detonating devices in the camp.
Until now the details of how Queens NY jihadi Mohammed Junaid Babar met the fertiliser bomb plotters have been hazy. But documents filed by the US authorities who extradited him from the UK, say it was Syed Hashmi. Hashmi, described as one of al-Muhajiroun's top recruiters, who brought the American, Babar, into the organisation where he later met the British fertiliser bomb plotters.

Syed Hashmi, who moved to Britain (London) from Queens in 2003, allegedly allowed his London flat to be used to store supplies and money that Babar was shipping out to Abdul al-Hadi al-Iraqi, then head of al-Qaeda's operations in Afghanistan. The supplies included ponchos, torches and boots, useful for recruits fighting US troops in remote parts of Afghanistan.

Hashmi was arrested as he tried to board a plane from Heathrow to Pakistan carrying thousands of pounds in cash. If convicted in the US he faces up to 54 years in prison. His lawyers say he will deny all the charges and that much of the evidence against him is conflicting.


But the thwarted plot in London that has been hardest felt around the world has been the trans-Atlantic airliner attack. Several men were recently convinced in London in the 2006 plot that was intended to rival the Sept. 11 attacks (all linked to Al-Muhajiroun).

The men tried to smuggle explosives through security in soft drink bottles. Massive disruptions were caused around the world and a ban on taking liquids through airport security still exists.
Rohan Gunaratna, an al-Qaida expert, said Friday's thwarted attack appeared to be a copycat of the trans-Atlantic technique. "What is surprising is that this man is Nigerian," he said, noting that recruiting in that country has not been the norm, and is more common in major European capitals like London.
