FBI Most Wanted "Whitey" Bulger Reported Using a Luxury Motor Home to Travel From State to State With Their Two Dogs.


I received a phone call from a woman who owns a RV Park in the Lexington South Carolina area who only just recently saw an article about FBI's Most Wanted James "Whitey" Bulger and claims that Bulger and his female sidekick Catherine Greig along with their two small dogs had stayed at her RV park in 2007 and 2008.


This woman in the Lexington South Carolina area who owns the RV Park went into explicit details describing James "Whitey" Bulger as far as his height, weight, heavy North East accent and what she called "deadly cold eyes" as he watched everything she did when in his company.


James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig were traveling in a 45 foot luxury motor home that accommodated them and their two small dogs, (Pomeranians or "Peeks") who they were constantly walking in the park.


James "Whitey" Bulger was described as somewhat outgoing but always reserved and holding back and observing everything and everybody around him, he always wore a ballcap and sunglasses when outside the motor home.  Catherine Greig was described as very outgoing and talkative with her hair and nails always just right, money seemed to be no trouble for this couple.


When James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig showed up in the RV Park in the Lexington South Carolina they had been pulling a late model red Ford, the woman at the RV Park felt like the license plates on the vehicles had Texas plates, but is not sure, the RV park moved their offices in 2009 some of the older files had been lost.  James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig never returned.

Additional information obtained from the RV Park owner in Lexington South Carolina indicated that James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig had been following the Sun with the "Snowbirds," travelling South to Texas and Florida in November, December, January and February and then North to South Carolina in March and then wherever for the Summer, Bulger is 80 and Greig is 58.


James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig love of dogs has been wll documated by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies for years.  The use of a large motor home makes travelling with multiple dogs very easy, no problems with motel or hotel owners, no boarding at kennels or vet's offices and provides great cover for James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig.




The information at the RV park has not been validated and reports to the FBI in Lexington SC were meet with somewhat lukewarm interest, but the premise of James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig using a luxury motor home to travel around the USA with thier two dogs makes sence.

4 more charged with investor fraud in Sarasota region, Clifford Frank Bagnall, Gerald Gonzalez, Fred William Howard and Charles Keith Byington



"Four men accused of bilking at least $1.3 million from Southwest Florida investors were arrested this week and brought to Sarasota to face a combined 88 counts related to securities fraud".

"Investigators allege that from September 2004 through August 2005, the men worked at BBG Investments and BBG Risk Management and sold 24-month promissory notes ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 to 20 Florida residents. "BBG" is formed from the first letters of the last names of Bagnall, Byington and Gonzalez".

"The charges against Clifford Frank Bagnall, Gerald Gonzalez, Fred William Howard and Charles Keith Byington stem from their involvement in several overlapping companies -- BBG Investments, BBG Risk Management and First Liberty Group -- where they allegedly sold bogus investments and pocketed the cash".

"The investments were primarily marketed through First Liberty Group, an entity that had an office on Fruitville Road and was controlled by Byington. Bagnall worked there as the chief financial officer and Howard as a sales agent, according to an arrest warrant for the four men filed earlier this week with the 12th Judicial Circuit in Sarasota", more from this source..................

How many more rocks need to be turned over in Sarasota to reveal all the snakes who have bilked Sarasota residents out of their cash.  There is now a very long and growing list of con-men, i.e., Clifford Frank Bagnall, Gerald Gonzalez, Fred William Howard and Charles Keith Byington along with Daniel Prewett, Neil Husani, Art Nadel and Gary Brown.

 
Why Have So Many Scammers Some With Criminal Records Like Daniel Prewett and Neil Mohamed Husani Been Able to Steal Over $500 Million From Banks And The Residents of Sarasota FL ?

What is it, the high heat and humidity or the salt air from the Gulf of Mexico that makes normally sane individuals and banks in Sarasota turn over hundreds of thousands of dollars to men, some have criminal records, to make investments without checking them out ?

Just recently it was revealed by the Sarasota Herald Tribune that one of the individuals scammed by ex-con Danile Prewett was a Sarasota police officer Todd Perna , who did not bother to check Prewett's background. Perna knew adviser Daniel Prewett as the head of the local Jackson Hewitt tax franchises, a guy who did his taxes and offered investments on behalf of the nationally respected chain. But the chief called Perna to his office and had a different story: Federal agents had just arrested Prewett on money laundering charges, and the chief wanted to know why Perna's name was in his paperwork.

Anwar al-Awlaki, To the Muslims in America in a new audio message, I have this to say "America is evil" jihad against America is binding upon you !


March 17th, 2010....A 12 minute audio from a Jihad website thought to be from Anwar al-Awlaki calling for Jihad against the USA by Muslims in the USA.

Brand New! Anwar Al-Awlaki - To The American Muslims as posted on the revolutionmuslim.com website.


"With the American invasion of Iraq and continued U.S. aggression against Muslims, I could not reconcile between living in the U.S and being a Muslim, and I eventually came to the conclusion that jihad against America is binding upon myself just as it is binding on every other Muslim," he says in the recording that runs more than 12 minutes.

Al-Awlaki's voice in the recording is measured and clear as he takes on the cadence of a preacher. He singles out Muslim Americans for a provocative message: How can you have your loyalty to a government that is leading the war against Islam and Muslims?
"To the Muslims in America, I have this to say: How can your conscience allow you to live in peaceful co-existence with a nation that is responsible for the tyranny and crimes committed against your own brother and sisters? How can you have your loyalty to a government that is leading the war against Islam and Muslims?"

According to U.S. intelligence officials, al-Awlaki's influence and reach -- especially on the Internet with English-speaking Muslims -- is still quite potent.  Just last week, Yemeni authorities subdued a New Jersey man, Sharif Mobley, as he tried to shoot his way out of a local hospital. He had been captured days before in an al Qaeda raid.

Senior U.S. security officials confirmed to CNN that Mobley left his home in New Jersey to seek out al-Awlaki. The officials say that Mobley made contact with al-Awlaki and was eager to meet up with him eventually in the belief that al-Awlaki could become his al Qaeda mentor.

Al-Awlaki's sermons and recordings have been found on the computers of at least a dozen of terror suspects in the U.S. and Britain. In addition, al-Awlaki admits to having communication with U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, charged in the shooting deaths of 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, in November.

In the new recording, al-Awlaki encourages the United States to release the correspondence between him and Hasan. He accuses the Obama administration of having something to hide.  "His (Obama's) administration tried to portray the operation of brother Nidal Hasan as an individual act of violence by an individual. The administration practiced the control on the leak of information concerning the operation in order to cushion the reaction of the American public," said al-Awlaki, more from this source........

Other terror websites such as http://saraya.ps/ seek the destruction of Israel and western interests.

WANTED DEAD OR DEAD OSAMA BIN LADEN, AG ERIC HOLDER SAYS WE WILL BRING HIM BACK IN A BODY BAG

Omar bin Laden says I don't want him to be caught and put on trial I wish he could die before someone gets him.
Attorney General Holder: Osama Bin Laden belongs in body bag, not court.

WASHINGTON – Osama Bin Laden will be brought to justice in a body bag, not a court of law, a fired-up Attorney General Eric Holder told lawmakers Tuesday.

Holder, fed up with Republicans who call him soft on terrorists, startled lawmakers by seeking to debunk that image, in vivid terms.


GOP congressmen tried to pummel the nation’s top law enforcement official over giving terrorists the same constitutional rights in civilian courts as American defendants, such as the now-unlikely lower Manhattan trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.

Holder said terrorists are treated like the murderers they are in federal courts – or, more specifically, “like Charles Manson.”

When Rep. John Culberson (R-Tex.) said that if Bin Laden himself were arrested, it would be absurd to give him the same due process afforded Manson, Holder erupted.

Charges he coddles terrorists get his “blood boiling,” the attorney general conceded. He followed with a Bin Laden prediction that was reminiscent of ex-President George W. Bush’s “dead or alive” misfire eight years ago about nailing the Al Qaeda leader.

Holder repeated – slowly – to the Texas congressman that “the possibility simply does not exist” that Bin Laden will ever be arraigned in any court, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE…..

Osama’s Prodigal Son Omar bin Laden hangs out in Syria strip clubs, His father Osama tested chemical weapons on his dogs, tried to turn him into a suicide bomber and groomed him to lead Al Qaeda, Rambo said Omar was the son of Hitler.  "Thank God my father doesn't run the world," Omar says, grinning.  "I love him because he is my father," he says. "I don't want him to be caught and put on trial. It would break my heart. I wish he could die before someone gets him.

"People recognize me a lot of times in Saudi Arabia," he says. "They say I should be proud of my father. There are millions who agree with my father. By many people, he is respected, idolized. I could face reprisals because you can't speak against your father in the Muslim world. Many people say I should not talk. But my father would never harm me."

Muslim converts radicalized over the Internet, Colleen LaRose, Sharif Mobley and Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, shut down jihad websites.

The Jihadists Next Door; The arrests of three new homegrown terrorists, including two "Jihad Janes" and an al-Qaida suspect who infiltrated nuclear plants, confirm a rise in homegrown jihadist activity.  Terrorist recruiter Anwar Awlaki's photo above.

Sharif Mobley is one of the latest jihadists next door. Before he was rounded up in a sweep of suspected al-Qaida terrorists in Yemen, Mobley worked at five nuclear plants in New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania. He shot two guards, killing one, before his capture.

Mobley grew up in New Jersey before converting to Islam. His militancy shocked an old high school friend, who ran into him after returning from an Army tour in Iraq. Mobley told him: "Get the hell away from me, you Muslim killer!"

Then there's Colleen LaRose, aka Jihad Jane, who was arrested in Philadelphia for allegedly plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist who'd "offended" Muslims. Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Denver was also arrested in connection with the assassination plot.

All three suspects are U.S. citizens from different parts of the country. One is black, one white and one formerly married to a Hispanic immigrant. Two, shockingly, are women. While each suspect has a different background, all three are Muslim converts radicalized over the Internet — a dangerous trend.

American converts are al-Qaida's prime recruits right now, because they have a better chance of slipping through security checkpoints.

Many such as Mobley are flocking to Yemen, where another American turncoat, Anwar Awlaki, recruits Westerners via the Web. Awlaki allegedly recruited the crotch bomber from London, then trained him for his suicide mission in Yemen. He also advised the Fort Hood terrorist Major Nidal Hasan online.

Much is said about keeping Jihad websites online to gather intelligence, but the DOD and the FBI were aware of Major Nidal Hasan's online activity with terrorist Anwar Awlaki and kept collecting intelligence until 13 people were massacred at Fort Hood.

The Christmas bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, on the Detroit bound airliner was on the radar of the CIA and his online activity with Anwar Awlaki was known.  It was also known that Abdulmutallab was in contact with al-Muhajiroun radicals in London, but did any Federal agency intervene, no, if it were not for some brave passengers on Abdulmutallab's plane it could have been a disaster.

Terrorists blatenly use Facebook and Youtube to communicate, instruct and recruit.  Online Jihad websites like www.alqimmah.net english inspire and promote radical jihad around the world, shut them down.

Kate Evans-Taylor has worked at the Northeast Intelligence Network for one month and she sets the record straight on Cyber Vigilantes, what a tool.


Setting the record straight on cyber-vigilantes "Northeast Intelligence Network" claims they are the real deal on terror websites, nonsence LOL.  Unbelievable Claims made by Kate Evans-Taylor, a so called Analyst for Northeast Intelligence Network.

Kate Evans-Taylor joined the Northeast Intelligence Network in February 2010 (she has all of one month experience, what a joke) as a researcher, analyst and contributor. Ms. Taylor is a native of Yorkshire, England where she worked in data collection and analysis for the British government. She moved to the U.S. in 2004 and obtained citizenship status in 2009. She currently resides in Western New York with her husband and two boys.

Just what Federal Agency does this Northeast Intelligence Network provide "detailed information on terrorist websites", get real, no Federal agency gives a rats patuti about anything that the Northeast Intelligence Network claims they have found on Arabic jihad websites, who is the Arabic translater at the Northeast Intelligence Network?

See the load of nonsence from this rookie Kate Evans-Taylor, who has worked at Northeast Intelligence Network for all of 1 month, has to say on "cyber-vigilantes below." 9 March 2010: Just after settling in as the newest member of the Northeast Intelligence Network, I was ready to dig in to a list of assignments suggested to me by Doug Hagmann, the organization’s founder and director. I followed the organization while living and working in Great Britain and courted the idea of joining the Northeast Intelligence Network after arriving in the U.S. Last month, I completed several informal training sessions that gave me necessary insight into the inner workings of the organization, only to be taken aback by a Fox News report out of Chicago about “cyber vigilantes” fighting terrorists on the Internet.


That report featured the Northeast Intelligence Network as one of a group of “cyber-vigilantes” whose objectives include the act of going after and taking down terrorist web sites. Pardon my expression and regression to my native slang, but the depiction of the Northeast Intelligence Network as a cyber-vigilante is a bunch of bollocks.

One of the very first things I learned during my induction into the Northeast Intelligence Network is the importance of being covert and operating without interference (do you report to the FBI, ha/ha), especially in cyberspace. It is our operational policy to observe, follow and track terror threats, but never do anything to drive a source of raw intelligence further underground. After I read the article and watched the news video that aired with the Fox report, I immediately called Mr. Hagmann, who was featured in the segment for clarification. Had our policies suddenly changed?

And so began my first assignment (did you bring you lunch pail to school) – interviewing Mr. Hagmann to write about on a topic I hadn’t expected and clearing any misconceptions about our counter-terrorism efforts. I also learned that there are so-called “cyber vigilantes” and ‘cyber-crusaders” as described in this 2008 Fox report (Sarasota private investigator Bill Warner) who wear the title as a badge of honour (you bet I do).

Ours is a strictly passive activity (in other words they do nothing) and at no time do our investigators engage, bait or disrupt any activity taking place within the groups that have been infiltrated. It is not our business to solicit responses or encourage or engage in any dialogue, but to document activity, which is then vetted for content and submitted to the appropriate law enforcement agency (and just who would that be?),” stated Mr. Hagmann. What a joke LOL.

Dear Ms. Kate Evans-Taylor get some experience in the real world, al-Qaeda is winning the war of words on the Internet and has passed you and your private investigator pals at the Northeast Intelligence Network a long time ago.

Note..PENNSYLVANIA P.I. Requirements Info. Private Investigator Licenses are required and 'enforced in some counties".

No State licensing required in PA for private investigators, though a license is required from county to county.


An investigator in "Pennsylvania is required to be licensed". To become licensed as a Pennsylvania investigator read the Private Detective Act of 1953. Then, petition the Court of Common Pleas in the county you reside or have your business. There is no State Licensing in Pennsylvania for private investigators, just read the Private Detective act of 1953, LOL.

Canada and UK Adds Al-Shabab To Terrorist List, Al-Shabab Recruiting Canadian Youths With Alabama Native Omar Hammami.

The Somali militant group Al-Shabab has been outlawed by Ottawa Canada following reports it has been radicalizing and recruiting Canadian youths.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said in an interview yesterday the federal Cabinet had added Al-Shabab to Canada`s list of banned terrorist organizations. He said the decision, which makes it a crime to knowingly participate in the activities of Al-Shabab, was partly a response to complaints from the large Canadian Somali community.
“Parents have been expressing concern that their youth are being radicalized by this organization,” the minister said. “It has been attempting to radicalize youth into the jihadist movement.” Often compared to the Taliban, Al-Shabab has aligned itself with al-Qaeda and has been fighting to impose its extremist version of Islamic law on Somalis, who are mostly moderate Sufi Muslims.

As part of its campaign, Al-Shabab has been “actively recruiting within the Somali-Canadian community,” Mr. Toews said. The group uses the Internet as well as direct contact to attract youths.  The FBI believes that almost two dozen Americans have joined Al-Shabab. Several are dead. Shirwa Ahmed, a 27-year-old Minneapolis college student, became the first known U.S. citizen to carry out a suicide bombing when he blew himself up in Somalia in 2008, killing 30 people.



One of the leading figures in Al-Shabab, Omar Hammimi, is an Alabama-born U.S. citizen who became radicalized and lived in Toronto before voyaging to Somalia to fight.  “Radicalization within the U.S. Somali community may be an indicator of similar processes at work in Canada,” RCMP Commissioner William Elliott said in a speech last October, more from this Somalia source.....


Britian's Alan Johnson bans Somali 'terrorist' group Al-Shabaab; The home secretary is to designate the Somalia-based group Al-Shabaab as a terrorist organisation and ban its operation in the UK. The Home Office says the group is committed to violence, deploys terror tactics and has been implicated in attacks on Somali citizens. Last month the group released a statement linking itself for the first time with Al-Qaeda. Home Secretary Alan Johnson said that the ban was "tough but necessary". He added that proscription was "not a course of action we take lightly".  The ban would mean that membership of Al-Shabaab in the UK becomes a criminal offence and it could not operate lawfully, for example by fund-raising.

Sen. Joe Lieberman I-Conn., Rep. Myrick NC and Cyber Vigilantes Attack Extremist Web Sites on the Internet.

USA Today...'Jihad Jane' shows terrorism-case trend;  From out of no where an American Jihadist is born. Federal authorities say LaRose who had previously converted to Islam and became a militant Jihadist.  For nearly a year, a middle-aged woman from suburban Philadelphia used her computer to fashion a new, frightening identity, federal court documents say.

The stream of Internet messages in which she sought assistance to wage violent jihad in Asia and Europe literally transformed her, the documents allege, from 46-year-old Colleen LaRose to "Jihad Jane."  By March 2009, federal prosecutors say she was communicating with at least three unidentified co-conspirators, including one who directed LaRose to "go to Sweden… and kill" a Swedish citizen, identified by two federal law enforcement officials as cartoonist Lars Vilks. 

Radical, English-language Islamist websites that promote a violent jihad, or holy war, against the West have become more effective at recruiting Americans and providing a place for armchair terrorists to meet and plan attacks in the U.S. or abroadIn Somalia the al-Shabaab run the Alqimmah-Golaha Ansaarta Mujaahidiinta website at http://www.alqimmah.net/
In January 2007, Rep. Myrick founded the bipartisan Anti-Terrorism Caucus. She along with Representatives Bud Cramer (D-AL), Kay Granger (R-TX), and Jane Harman (D-CA) are the 4 Caucus co-chairs. Members of this Caucus attend meetings where experts give presentations regarding terrorism and jihadist ideology propaganda on the internet.

The U.S. has stepped up its cyber terrorism divisions since 9-11, but we are still far behind the terrorists when it comes to the Internet. They seem to always be one step ahead of our intelligence agencies and we can rarely locate and break up their communications.

Terrorists on the Internet also use American privacy laws against the FBI and CIA. A terrorist in Pakistan can set up a Web site on a U.S. server and would be considered a U.S. entity under our privacy laws. This prevents our intelligence services from monitoring activities on these types of radical Islamist Web sites.
 
Terrorists also use our Web sites against us. They can hack a Web site and post up information to their group's members just long enough to get their message out, and then will take it down before intelligence officers catch on.
 
We must not allow the Internet to be a safe haven for terrorists. In order to shut down jihadists on the Internet, our laws need to be brought into the 21st century. We must amend our laws so our intelligence services can monitor foreign users hosting their Web sites on U.S. servers if there is just cause.
 
In a letter to Google chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt, Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., said, "A great majority of these videos document horrific attacks on American soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan."  Other videos, Lieberman said, "provide weapons training, speeches by al-Qaeda leadership, and general material intended to radicalize potential recruits."

Lieberman asks Google to apply its own community guidelines, which forbid graphic or gratuitous violence, and videos that show, "someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated."  In response to the letter, 80 videos were removed from YouTube by Google. But while Lieberman considers this a good start, he says it is not enough.
In a statement, Lieberman said, "Google continues to allow the posting of videos by organizations the State Department has designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

No matter what their content, videos produced by terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, that are committed to attacking America and killing Americans, should not be tolerated. Google must reconsider its policy."
Sen Joe Liberman in the New York Times and private investigator Bill Warner in the Columbian were both labeled as INTERNET CENSORS by main street newspapers (MSN).  The Columbian Newspaper; In our view: Internet censor (Bill Warner), Wednesday, May 07, 2008.

For taking this step to safeguard the USA, Sen Joe Lieberman was criticized in a New Tork times article, "Joe Lieberman, Would-Be Censor," "The Internet is simply a means of communication, like the telephone, but that has not prevented attempts to demonize it — the latest being the ludicrous claim that the Internet promotes terrorism". LOL.  Mr. Lieberman recently demanded that YouTube take down hundreds of videos produced by Islamist terrorist organizations or their supporters. YouTube reviewed the videos to determine whether they violated its guidelines, which prohibit hate speech and graphic or gratuitous violence. It took down 80 videos, but left others up. Mr. Lieberman said that was “not enough,” and demanded that more come down.  Yhe Senate homeland security committee, which is led by Mr. Lieberman, issued a report titled “Violent Islamist Extremism, the Internet, and the Homegrown Terrorist Threat.”

The report identified the Internet as “one of the primary drivers” of the terrorist threat to the United States.  All of this comes against the backdrop of a troubling Congressional antiterrorism bill that also focuses on the Internet. The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, which passed the House last year by a 404-to-6 vote, would establish a commission to study the terrorist threat and propose legislation. The bill, which the Senate has not acted on, has a finding that the Internet promotes radicalization and terrorism. The American Civil Liberties Union has warned that the “Homegrown Terrorism” bill and related efforts “could be a precursor to proposals to censor and regulate speech on the Internet.” WHAT IDIOTS.

During the 110th Congress, under the leadership of Chairman Joseph Lieberman (ID-CT), the Committee continued its investigation into the threat of domestic radicalization and homegrown terrorism inspired by violent Islamist ideology. The Committee has held five more hearings exploring a range of subjects, including an assessment of the homegrown threat in the United States, the European experience with domestic radicalization, the federal government's efforts to counter the homegrown terrorist threat, the role of local law enforcement in responding to the threat, and the Internet's role in the radicalization process.

U.S. Company Hosted Web Site Used by Omar Hammami and Al-Shabaab Group That Recruited Sharif Mobley and Jihad Jane. A Web site used by a Somali jihadist group that has been tied to a suspected terrorist from Daphne was hosted by an Internet company based in the United States, according to a private investigator.

Bill Warner, an investigator from Sarasota, Fla., who tried to shut down a number of Web sites linked to extremist groups, said he first targeted an al-Shabaab Web site in May 2008 after the U.S. government labeled it a terrorist organization.

Dotster Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., took the Web site down in January 2009, Warner said, after an order from the federal government. Warner said he has run a detective agency for 15 years and has been trying to shut down terrorist Web sites -- on his own time without pay -- since 2003.

When watching an April 2007 al-Shabaab Web posting, he said, he was particularly intrigued by one of the men on the Web site, a fair-skinned man, who stood apart from the Somali fighters.

That man went by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki. Fox News reported last week that his true identity is Omar Hammami and that he faces a secret indictment in Mobile's federal court on a charge of providing material support to terrorists. Hammami, 25, attended Daphne High School and the University of South Alabama.

Warner said news reports of Hammami's past as a computer science student confirmed his suspicions that al-Amriki had provided technical assistance to al-Shabaab. "At that time, I suspected he was involved with setting up the Web site," he said. "It appears Omar, with his background, is the perfect guy to set this up for them."

Rick Schwein, the assistant special agent in charge of counter-terrorism efforts at the Mobile office of the FBI, said he could not comment on a specific case. In general, he said, the bureau works within the constraints of the law to take down Web sites that lure recruits and coordinate terrorist activity. "It's something that is of great concern to us," he said.

Warner said federal investigators often do not want to tip their hand by moving on a Web site before they have mined it for intelligence. Foreign terrorist groups prefer to use American Web-hosting companies because the larger bandwidth they use allows higher-quality video postings.


The Arizona Republic Al-Qaida Web site was hosted in Phoenix. Bill Warner, a Sarasota, Fla., private investigator who has worked with federal agencies on terrorist-related issues, has been tracking terrorist-related Web sites for months.

Web Sleuth Tracks Another Jihadist Site To Tampa Host For the third time in a month, Sarasota-based private investigator Bill Warner has tracked to a Tampa hosting company what investigators call a significant Web site used by jihadists for communications, recruitment and fundraising.

But officials at Dotster which hosted the al-Shabaab site at http://www.kataaib.net/  , and the local newspaper "The Columbian" initially resisted Warner's efforts, he said.

The Columbian Newspaper Dotster under fire for Web content.” Florida resident Bill Warner, who describes himself as an anti-terrorist vigilante, is among a collection of online activists who want to use public pressure on Dotster to get www.kataaib.net  shut down.

"Al-Shabaab links to Al-Qaeda Were Published Wednesday 5/07/2008 in Columbian Newspaper, IN OUR VIEW: INTERNET CENSOR BILL WARNER".
 
"Bill Warner, a Sarasota private investigator ( http://www.wbipi.com/), wants Dotster Inc. of Vancouver to refuse service to http://www.kataaib.net/ . Warner, who has launched similar purge efforts in other cities with other Internet companies, says http://www.kataaib.net/  supports an al-Qaida organization in Somalia, where war and genocide are tragic facts of daily life".

Dotster representatives could not be reached for comment Wednesday. The company told the newspaper in Vancouver last year that its passes along all complaints to law enforcement agencies but does not censor customers' content. "We are not in a position to judge and be a jury on what content may be legal or acceptable," Brian Unruh, the firm's chief financial officer, told the newspaper.

Warner said the al-Shabaab site clearly crossed the line. And while the message was in Somali, he said, a mirror site run by a man in the United Kingdom had an English-language version. "It was blatantly recruiting suicide bombers," he said, more from this source.
