American Citizens Samir Khan, Adam Gadahn and Omar Hammami Run Propaganda and Recruitment For Al-Qaeda On The Web, "The Geek Squad".
Three U.S. Citizens Are Now In Charge of Propaganda and Recruitment For Al-Qaeda. “AL-QAEDA’S GEEK SQUAD” THEIR PHOTOS ABOVE, Charlotte’s Sami Khan has joined forces with two other U.S. Citizens who are now in charge of propaganda for Al-Qaeda, Omar Hammami In Somalia and Adam Gadahn on the Afghan-Pakistan Border, Samir Khan runs "Inspire" magazine in Yemen.
WBTV Charlotte, Rep Myrick: Samir Khan is #2 in recruiting Americans to al-Qaeda. It appears Charlotte man Samir Khan is a rising star in the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization. Congresswoman Sue Myrick says the former Central Piedmont Community College student has risen to number two in Al Qaeda’s propaganda war on the West and the United States. As we’ve reported, Khan is now allegedly running al-Qaeda’s new online magazine out of Yemen. It’s all in English. Myrick says that’s extremely scary because it’s a blatant attempt to recruit impressionable young American kids.
WBTV started looking into Samir Khan back in 2007. Anchor Molly Grantham talked with him as he walked into work one day. At that time, he denied recruiting for al-Qaeda or for terrorism. How did he get to Yemen? Wouldn’t he be on a “no-fly” list? We’ve posed those questions two nights in the row.
“If he is the number two guy, how did federal intelligence let him get away?”, Grantham asked Myrick. “How did he move from Charlotte… hop a plane… go to Yemen, when I can find him in a parking lot?” “I know Molly, it’s crazy,” Myrick said. “These are the same questions I’m asking right now.”
Samir Khan now runs "Inspire" an English language online magazine published by the organization Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). The use of the magazine is to increase the availiability of their jihad message without challenges to their value system. The magazine is one of the many ways AQAP uses the internet to reach its audience.
The Post 9/11 FBI: The Bureau’s Response to Evolving Threats, Mark F. Giuliano, Assistant Director, FBI Counterterrorism Division..AQAP leaders such as Anwar Aulaqi and Samir Khan have published articles on the internet detailing their intent to strike the United States. Several key AQAP figures were born or educated in the United States and understand our culture, our limitations, our security protocols, and our vulnerabilities. They use this understanding to develop and refine new tactics and techniques to defeat our security measures and attack us.
AQAP also understands and expertly exploits social media to share their knowledge with others of similar mindsets. They realize the importance and value of reaching Englishspeaking audiences and are using the group’s marketing skills to inspire individuals to attack within the homeland. In many cases they are attempting to provide them with the knowledge to do so, without having to travel or train abroad.
ADAM GADAHN FROM GARDEN GROVE CA JAIL IN 1997 TO SPOKESMAN FOR AL-QAEDA. Adam Gadahn has come a long way from his Garden Grove CA days (see jail photo above) where he got his SSN 623-78-xxxx in 1995 and started surfing the Internet. In 1995, at age 16, Adam Gadahn moved in with his grandparents in Santa Ana, California, where he worked in a computer store and explored the Internet.
Adam Gadahn was setting up web sites on the Internet for his heavy metal music reviews and then he discovered Islam ; "The turning point, perhaps, was when I moved in with my grandparents here in Santa Ana, the county seat of Orange, California. My grandmother, a computer whiz, is hooked up to America Online and I have been scooting the information superhighway since January. But when I moved in, with the intent of finding a job (easier said than done), I begin to visit the religion folders on AOL and the Usenet newsgroups, where I found discussions on Islam to be the most intriguing".
Adam Yahiye Gadahn was indicted in the Central District of California for treason and material support to Al Qaeda. The charges are related to Gadahn's alleged involvement in a number of terrorist activities, including providing aid and comfort to Al Qaeda and services for Al Qaeda. The Rewards For Justice Program, United States Department of State, is offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of Adam Yahiye Gadahn.
DAPHNE Ala. COMPUTER GEEK OMAR HAMMAMI IS NOW AL-SHABAAB TERROR WEBMASTER ABU MANSOUR AL-AMRIKI HE FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF AL-QAEDA COMPUTER GEEK ADAM GADAHN aka AZZAM AL-AMRIKI by Private Investigator Bill Warner.
Private investigator Bill Warner says Daphne terror suspect Omar Hammami linked to jihadist Web site. 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, Warner said, after an order from the federal government.
Bill 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 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. Omar Hammami, 27, 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."
According to the US Treasury Department, "Omar Hammami serves as a military tactician, recruitment strategist and financial manager for al-Shabaab. Hammami has commanded guerilla forces in combat, organized attacks and plotted strategy with al-Qa’ida. He was also involved in organizing a suicide bombing attack carried out by a Somali-American from Minnesota who traveled to Somalia to join al-Shabaab. That attack, and four others organized by Hammami and carried out in October 2008, killed more than 20 people.”
