Government Confirms 9/11 Anniversary Threat

Pages: 1 2

The U.S. government is putting the intelligence and law enforcement communities on high alert after receiving “credible” intelligence about an Al-Qaeda plan to carry out attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and possibly elsewhere on or around the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Ayman al-Zawahiri must prove himself as a terrorist leader and show that Al-Qaeda is still potent after the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

The government confirms that the intelligence is “credible,” but cautions that it is not corroborated. It is believed that Ayman al-Zawahiri authorized the operation himself, and the Al-Qaeda operatives are looking at an attack on September 10 or 11. The plot involves car bombings in New York City, Washington D.C., and possibly Europe. They are to be carried out by three operatives that were based in the Pakistani tribal areas. At least two of the operatives are American citizens, one being Egyptian and the other being Yemeni, and all three are fluent in English. The cell was told to be “flexible” in their plots, adapting to the security situation.

Two of the operatives transited through Iran to get to Pakistan, indicating a possible role by the Iranian regime. The Obama administration recently disclosed that the Iranian regime and Al-Qaeda had a “secret deal.” In Pakistan, the two met with the third operative, and they traveled together to Kabul, Afghanistan to get their travel documents. The Afghani Taliban helped the plotters logistically. The group went to Dubai and then flew into the U.S. last month.

The information came out of Pakistan, but it is unclear if it was gathered by the U.S. or if Pakistan passed it along, perhaps fearing that an attack on America would result in massive retaliation. The information comes from a single source, but it was supported by the data taken from Osama Bin Laden’s compound. An official said that the intelligence is “very specific” and was received on September 7. The authorities were searching for two missing rental trucks, but they have been located. It is no longer thought that the vehicles are connected to the terrorist plot.

It was discovered from the files in Bin Laden’s compound that the Al-Qaeda chief was very interested in carrying out an attack around, or on, the 10th anniversary of 9/11. In February, he was brainstorming with Atiyah Abd al-Rahman about a possible attack on trains in the U.S. Al-Rahman was killed in a drone strike in Waziristan on August 22. One idea was to damage train tracks so the vehicle would derail.

Earlier this month, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warned that earlier this year, Al-Qaeda was looking into using explosive-packed, private planes for carrying out attacks. They sought to find sympathizers in the West to become flight instructors.

“Al-Qaida and its affiliates have maintained an interest in obtaining aviation training, particularly on small aircraft, and in recruiting Western individuals for training in Europe or the United States, although we do not have current, credible information or intelligence of an imminent attack being planned,” the memo said.

    Racial profiling be damned. If anybody sees three Middle Eastern guys wearing bulky overcoats, shoot first, then ask questions.

    Then, Homeland Security needs to explain how these guys got into the US.

    Google "Why They Hate Us," by Laurence M. Vance.

    If you only read one article concerning the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks upon the United States, I highly recommend that this is the one to read. The important information it contains is not widely known to most Americans.

      You peaked my interests, so I googled up "Why They Hate Us," by Laurence M. Vance, and the first thing I noticed is it was published on the Lew Rockwell website, which is an anarcho-kook website that promotes the idea along with those morons Ron Paul and Reverend Wright that 9/11 was America's chickens coming home to roost. Yeah right…that's all we need, more mentally handicapped brain damage from kooks! Give me a break!

    Check out the "Zabibah" on Zawahiri's forehead; it's the mark of Cain. And a fine target for a sniper…

    The solution to our problem is really pretty simple. Outlaw Islam and ban and reverse Muslim immigration to America ASAP and suddenly there will be no more jihad attacks. Why waste hundreds of billions of dollars and at the same time usurp our heretofore constitutionally protected freedoms and rights when we don't have to? Indeed, is Muslim immigration so valuable for America that it is worth changing America forever just to accommodate it?

    The notion that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists is a damn lie hoisted on the American people by GWB and his cronies, as ALL MUSLIMS, per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam are jihadists. Indeed, Muslims never ever migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter to assimilate and integrate, but instead to eventually subjugate and dominate and to make Islam supreme via demographic conquest. If anyone believes otherwise, then I have a bridge I need to sell them.

    In addition, declaring war on terror was about as ludicrous as ludicrous gets, since Muslims only engage in jihad, which is holy fighting in the cause of Allah. They never ever engage in terrorism, as terrorism is a product and manifestation of the non-Islamic world only. Hence, if you ask Muslims if they support terrorism, of course, they will always answer no and be truthful at the same time, because they don't support terrorism either, as terrorism and jihad (holy fighting in the cause of Allah) are two mutually exclusive and entirely different things altogether. Thus, the reason the so-called war on terror thus far has been a total abject failure and complete unmitigated disaster, although no one will admit it, is because it is based on political correct myths and false premises about the true nature of our Islamic enemies.

    In fact, practically everything that America has done in response to the 9/11 jihad attacks has been either totally useless or incredibly counterproductive because it was based on political correct myths and false premises about the real nature of our Islamic enemies. Indeed, the notion that after doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government via the creation of the massive Department of Homeland Security and the immense National Intelligence Directorate, like growing government is always the solution for all that ails us, somehow made us safer is ludicrous. All it did was create a massive unnecessary federal government bureaucracy that is bankrupting us and a false sense of security.

    The truth is despite trillions of dollars wasted we are more vulnerable today than we were the day the 9/11 jihad attacks occurred, simply because we have more Muslim jihadists living in America today as a fifth column than we had the day the 9/11 jihad attacks occurred. Indeed, as long as we allow Muslim jihadists to migrate to America to become a fifth column and to subvert us by working to remove all obstacles for the eventual imposition of Sharia, we will always remain vulnerable to jihad attacks.

    On the other hand, zero Muslim jihadists in America equals zero jihad attacks without wasting hundreds of billions of dollars, without a massive unnecessary federal government bureaucracy that is bankrupting us, without sacrificing our heretofore constitutionally protected freedoms and rights, and without permanently changing America forever just to accommodate mass Muslim immigration with all its excess baggage.

    In fact, there is only one sure way to eliminate the threat and to protect the homeland from jihad attacks at the same time, and that is to ban and reverse Muslim immigration ASAP. Indeed, during the Cold War we didn't let millions of Communists immigrate and infiltrate our country because that would have been suicidal. By the same token, we shouldn't be allowing millions of Muslim stealth jihadists to immigrate and infiltrate our country today because it is likewise suicidal.
