Authorities nabbed the would-be killer, who was carrying a vest supposedly packed with explosives in Washington D.C. FOX NEWS....Authorities have arrested a man allegedly on his way to the U.S. Capitol for what he thought would be a suicide attack on one of the nation's most symbolic landmarks. The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by the FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack. It's unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations.
The suspect, Amine El Khalifi, a 29-year-old Morrocan who was living in Alexandria, Va has been in the United States for about 12 years but according to one source is not a U.S. citizen, allegedly weighed hitting various targets ranging from a military installation to synagogues before settling on the Capitol. The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates of Al Qaeda. In a statement that did not get into the details of the alleged plot, the U.S. Capitol Police said the suspect was "closely and carefully monitored." Capitol Police confirmed the suspect was arrested on Friday.
Sites in Washington have long been a target for terrorists, especially self-radicalized extremists caught in FBI stings. In the past year alone, at least 20 people have been arrested in the United States on terrorism-related charges, according to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. "Most of the arrests" have involved "lone wolves," radicalized online and able to use the Internet to build bombs, FBI Director Robert Mueller told the Senate committee last month.
Have You Forgotten How it Felt That Day When The Towers Fell, Must Be As You Allow Al-Qaeda To Run Recruiting Websites In The USA. Thousands of Americans died on 9/11/2001, America went to war against Al-Qaeda and the battle continues right up till today in Afghanistan and the new front in Somalia, and what do we do back here in the USA, we allow Al-Qaeda to operate websites that recruit terrorist suicide bombers on sites that are hosted by American Companies right here in the USA, just how stupid are we?
Below are listed just a few of the examples of how Al-Qaeda makes a fool out of the USA with websites hosted on the West Coast;
1). Dotster Domain Registration and Website Hosting Company Continues to Promote Al-Qaeda Websites in the USA That Recruit Lone Wolf Terrorists and Suicide Bombers. Why isn’t the DHS monitoring these jihadist websites. Dotster Domain Registration and Website Hosting in Vancouver WA, fronts for Al-Qaeda jihad website Ansar Al-Mujahideen http://www.ansar1.info/ that recruits lone wolf terrorists.
The Ansar al-Mujahideen forum “is a popular, internationally-known, Islamic extremist web forum used by its members to translate, promote, and distribute jihadist propaganda, as well as a means to communicate with other like-minded extremists,” see their website http://www.ansar1.info/
2). Internet Jihadist Calls American Muslims to ‘Cut off Tongue’ of Talk Show Host David Letterman and Kill “The Lowly Jew” on Shumukh al-Islam Forum. An internet jihadist has called on Muslims in America to kill comedian David Letterman, according to an online report by Stars and Stripes. The threat was allegedly made by Umar al-Basrawi, a frequent contributor to an online Islamic jihadist forum which is called Shumukh al-Islam Forum see http://www.shamikh1.info/
Shumukh-al-Islam is a site where messages from Al Qaeda frequently first appear online in the U.S. It’s a clearing house for Al-Qaeda material. It gets the most Al-Qaeda supporters and is hosted in LA.
