YEMENESE RESULT…

Pleased to read that the 72 virgins will be kept busy.

The US-born radical Islamist cleric and suspected al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen, the country’s defence ministry reported. US administration officials confirmed the reports, according to US media. Awlaki, of Yemeni descent, has been on the run in Yemen since December 2007. The US had named him a “specially designated global terrorist” for his alleged role in a number of attacks and US President Barack Obama is said to have personally ordered his killing. The defence ministry statement said only that he died “along with some of his companions”.

The death of any human being is not a cause for celebration but rather, as in this case, grim satisfaction that we have removed this terrorist from our planet. Allahu Akhbar.

TARGET: YEMEN.

Pretty clear where our forces need to strike if the idea is to kill as many Al Queda low-lives as possible;

Hundreds of suspected al-Qaeda gunmen have captured the southern Yemeni city of Zinjibar after heavy fighting with security forces. Government officials said that the provincial capital was under the control of militants after fighting that began on Friday and had claimed 16 lives, including civilians. The fighters “were able to gain control of the city of Zinjibar … and took over all government facilities” a security official told AFP. Only the headquarters of the the 25th mechanised brigade was holding out, he added, but it was besieged by the gunmen. A local resident said: “About 300 Islamic millitants and al-Qaeda men came into Zinjibar and took over everything on Friday.”

Send in the planes!

anniversary: there are occasional surveillance lapses

While I accept that there are people out there who wish us evil, there can be no excuse for the type of behaviour shown both on the streets of London during the G20 demonstrations, and the arrest of over 100 people BEFORE any protest was made at a power station in Nottinghamshire!

THOSE BRITISH PAKISTANIS

By ATWadmin On February 9th, 2009 at 8:24 am

Interesting to read that British Islamist extremists are the greatest threat to US homeland security.

“American spy chiefs have told the President that the CIA has launched a vast spying operation in the UK to prevent a repeat of the 9/11 attacks being launched from Britain. They believe that a British-born Pakistani extremist entering the US under the visa waiver programme is the most likely source of another terrorist spectacular on American soil.

Intelligence briefings for Mr Obama have detailed a dramatic escalation in American espionage in Britain, where the CIA has recruited record numbers of informants in the Pakistani community to monitor the 2,000 terrorist suspects identified by MI5, the British security service. A British intelligence source revealed that a staggering four out of 10 CIA operations designed to thwart direct attacks on the US are now conducted against targets in Britain.”

Britain has allowed itself to be a floating base for Jihad. Our useless government denies that there is even such a thing as Islamic terrorism and wraps itself up in the soft cotton of multiculti rhetoric as a substitute for taking effective action. The enemy are within and yet they deny it. The US is not so lunatic and for good reason sees the UK as the most likely source of terror attacks on the homeland.

BRINGING BINYAM HOME…?

By ATWadmin On February 2nd, 2009 at 8:18 am

Thank goodness for that”. An alleged “British resident” (aka an Ethiopian) said to be just ‘skin and bone’ and close to death in the Guantanamo Bay camp is to be flown back to the UK within days.

West London “student” Binyam Mohamed, 30, who has been on a hunger strike since January 5 after being held in the prison camp for four years, has collapsed several times in recent days. His immediate repatriation to Britain is being arranged as US authorities face a political row should a British fatality occur in the prison. Lieutenant Colonel Yvonne Bradley, an American military lawyer who last week saw Mohamed in his cell – where he has been kept under solitary confinement – described how he was wasting away. ‘The real worry is that he comes out in a coffin,’ she said.

No, I wouldn’t have said this was a real worry, more of a real hope for those who despise Al Queda.

Let’s cut hrough the spurious nonsense here, shall we?

For starters, Mr Mohamed entered the UK illegally in 1994. That is precisely how valid his status as a “British resident” is. He is an Ethiopian wanting a slice of welfare UK.

Second, good old Londoner Binyam decided that because he had “drug issues” what better way to deal with them to travel to….an Al Queda training camp in Pakistan. He was subsequently captured and confessed to being an AQ terrorist.

“There is no doubt that Binyam Mohamed, a native of Ethiopia who lived in the United States and London for years, traveled to Afghanistan to train in al Qaeda’s al Farouq training camp in June 2001. He freely admitted this to his personal representative at Guantánamo. The government’s unclassified files explain that he “received 40 days of training in light arms handling, explosives, and principles of topography.” He was also “taught to falsify documents, and received instruction from a senior al Qaeda operative on how to encode telephone numbers before passing them to another individual.”

What happened after his training at al Farouq is a bit more ambiguous, but the government believes he was en route to America, where he was to stage an attack. Binyam and his lawyer claim that he wanted the al Qaeda training to fight in Chechnya — and not to fight American forces. But many fresh recruits were influenced to travel to Afghanistan for training to fight in Chechnya and ended up being repurposed by al Qaeda for other missions. This is what happened with some of the 9/11 hijackers.

The U.S. government believes that senior al Qaeda terrorists wanted to use Binyam in an attack inside America. He was allegedly going to work with convicted terrorist Jose Padilla. Early reports said that Padilla was attempting to use a so-called “dirty bomb,” comprised of radioactive components. The government’s unclassified files note that Padilla and Binyam reviewed information about a dirty bomb at an al Qaeda safe house, but this does not appear to be the plot they intended to execute. Binyam mentioned the possibility of attacking subways to his al Qaeda handlers. And they suggested attacking apartment buildings by setting natural gas lines on fire.

Naturally faux Londonder Binyam has since claimed he was tortured – just as the AQ training manual instructs. He has become a cause celebre and Britain wants him back. This is how weak-kneed our authorities hjave become in the fight against Jihad, they swallow every fabrication that AQ terrorists make and convince themselves that every Gitmo inmate is an innocent abroad. It’s a death-wish mindset and yet it is the one that prevails at this time. It’s as if we need to experience one massive Al Queda atrocity that makes even 9/11 pale into insignificance before official eyes open to the threat in front of us. But in the meantime, we import Jihadi.

MR BEAN DENIES WAR ON TERROR..

By ATWadmin On January 15th, 2009 at 5:03 pm

I can’t believe anyone with an ounce of common sense pays any attention to the gaseous blether coming from Mr Bean-look a like David Miliband, the British Foreign Secretary, who has bid an acrimonious adieu to George W Bush today, branding the outgoing President’s War on Terror a “misleading and mistaken” doctrine that had united extremists against the West. Speaking in Mumbai, Mr Miliband said that the idea of a War on Terror gave a false notion “of a unified, transnational enemy, embodied in the figure of Osama Bin Laden and the organisation of al-Qaeda”.

Mr Bean employs the vacuous drivel of the Left for his own gains and I am sure he made this speech in order to chock up plaudits with the Obama team. The fact is that militant Islam has been at war with us LONG before President Bush came to power, and it will still be at war with us LONG after President Obama leaves the White House.The best we can do is ensure we kill all of those who would terrorise us and reduce their capability to harm us. In a war we should be aiming to win. But the thing that Mr Bean is most annoyed about is that Bush did something about the Jihad.

Since 9/11, there have been NO attacks on US soil. Can Mr Bean make the same claim about the UK?

With the Taliban toppled in Afghanistan, Saddam and his psycho sons moved off this mortal coil to a much warmer spot and Al Queda forced to huddle  in the caves of the Pakistan/Afghan  border, Bush has achieved quite a lot. Of COURSE he could and should have done more, I would have preferred a more aggressive approach to militant Islam. I didn’t like the “war on terror” meme, it should have been the “war on Jihad”. But Mr Bean gives the President no credit whatsover and that is because Mr Bean has only one big idea – talking. Soft power backed up  by softer heads is all he can fall back on. He is truly pathetic apology for a Foreign Secretary but then his government is the same government that even denies that there IS Islamic terrorism. Tell it to the next of kin of the victims of 7/7.

Then again should we surprised at anything Mr Bean says? Just remember that he comes from a family of Marxists. (And I don’t mean they liked Groucho and his kin.)

DRONE WARS..

By ATWadmin On January 9th, 2009 at 8:44 am

Another good day in the war on terror. It is revealed that Al-Qaeda’s operations chief in Pakistan and a top aide are believed to be dead, in what appeared to be the latest results of a US-led campaign targeting the militant group’s leadership.

“Operations chief Usama al-Kini was thought responsible for a series of attacks including the bombing of a Marriott hotel in Islamabad that killed 55 people in September, and an unsuccessful attempt to kill former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who was later assassinated in a separate attack, a US counterterrorism offical said. “These deaths are a significant near-term degradation of al-Qaeda’s leadership,” he said. His comments echoed public remarks by Bush administration officials increasingly confident that al-Qaeda’s central command structure has been significantly weakened. He added that the pair was killed “within the last week.” Kini and his dead lieutenant, Sheikh Ahmed Salim Swedan, were both Kenyan-born. They were on the FBI’s list of most wanted terrorism suspects and had been indicted for the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.”

Justice has been done via a drone. I am sure the usual apologists for Islamic terror here will squeal in rage but scum like Al-Kini are best off with Allah rather than plotting the death of innocents. Another great result for our military.

PREDATOR VS JIHADISTAN…

By ATWadmin On January 3rd, 2009 at 10:31 am

Interesting to read that the top hierarchy of al-Qaeda has taken such a hit from US missile strikes that Osama bin Laden and his deputy have had to replace people in the terrorist organisation with men they have never met, according to Western intelligence sources.

A dozen of al-Qaeda’s “senior management” have been killed by Predator drone attacks, which have been so effective in locating their targets that the militant group has been forced to move from traditional outdoor training camps to classroom-style facilities that are hidden from view. After the success of the new weapons, which are unmanned and operate by remote control from 15,000 feet, the United States is to step up its drone attacks. On January 1 Hellfire missiles, operated from an air force base in Nevada, hit targets in the South Waziristan region of Pakistan, close to Afghanistan, and yesterday two missiles slammed into the stronghold where Baitullah Mehsud, the Pakistani Taleban leader, is believed to live. The killings have had a huge impact on the structure, organisation and effectiveness of al-Qaeda, limiting the capacity for commanders to liaise with each other, further separating the top command from the lower ranks and introducing a high degree of uncertainty and a constant awareness of the likelihood of death lurking in the skies.

This is smart tech at its best, wiping out Al Queda scum whilst ensuring US lives are not put at un-necessary risk.

BRINGING THE BOYS HOME…

By ATWadmin On January 1st, 2009 at 10:03 am

Britain starts 2009 preparing to receive foreign terror suspects from Guantánamo Bay so that Barack Obama can shut it down.

Government sources say that Britain now supports moves to rehouse the detainees, despite previous refusals to help President Bush. (How times change when its a liberal in The White House, eh?) 

A Downing Street official said that a process to deal with the detainees was being put in place and that decisions “would be for the Home Secretary to decide on a case-by-case basis”. The issue is the subject of intense negotiations within Whitehall. The Foreign Office appears much keener on the idea than other departments, which will have to deal with the suspects’ immigration status and whether they will need special housing and cash benefits. Having foreign terror suspects with no links to the UK housed here inevitably will provoke controversy”

Here’s the deal. The British Foreign Office is a nest of vipers and always has been so.Those of us who have experience of it here in Northern Ireland are acutely aware of the anti-British immoral and spineless mindset that prevails amongst the wise old coves that run it. The FO is attracted to the idea of importing terror suspects since these wise old coves know better than us mere mortals. Personally I would have thought our security services had enough work to do preventing local Islamics from slaughtering us but now we can look forward to a New Year with a new set of terror suspects. Labour loves terrorists and Club Gitmo residents can now lok forward to Welfare Britain. The Foreign Office can FO.

STIFFENING THEIR RESOLVE!

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2008 at 9:46 am

“Make love, not war” has been replaced with make war with love.

“Whatever it takes to make friends and influence people – whether it’s building a school or handing out Viagra,” one veteran CIA officer told The Washington Post. According to the newspaper, pills to boost the libidos of Afghan tribal patriarchs are the latest in a long line of inducements including medicine or operations for family, toys and school equipment, tooth extractions and visas. In one case, a warlord aged 60 who was struggling to satisfy his four younger wives was also holding back information that could be crucial to American interests. A clandestine CIA operatives who was visiting sensed an opportunity and reached into his bag for a small gift of four blue pills. “Take one of these,” he said. “You’ll love it.” Four days later, the CIA man returned to a beaming warlord – whether there were any smiles form his wives was not reported. The warlord furnished the CIA with invaluable details of Taliban supply routes and movements before requesting more pills.”

Mmm….some of the CIA schemes do worry me. It’s all very well to bribe these tribal leaders but their loyalty will last just as long as the next Viagra tablet, and what if Bin Laden and his co-horts up the ante and bribe them with TWO viagra tablets? War is a dirty game and in the final analysis it is fair enough that we do all that is necessary to win. But I can’t help but feel that the CIA tends to get carried away in some of these well-intentioned but perhaps somewhat..ahem..non-sustainable  endeavours!
