Skip to comments.Al Qaeda Will Nuke US in Late September (According To A Pakistani Journalist)
Posted on 09/13/2006 6:23:44 AM PDT by areafiftyone
A Pakistani journalist says that his sources in al Qaeda and the Taliban are claiming that nuclear material has already been smuggled across the Mexican border into the U.S. and that an operation bigger than 9/11 will be carried out during Ramadan--which begins later this month.
Hamid Mir, who is the only journalist ever to interview both Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri, claims that he learned this information on a recent trip to Afghanistan last month.
So, the guy does have a track record, but considering that he got the information from al Qaeda and the Taliban....well, these guys aren't exactly reliable sources. So, yeah the headline is alarmist, but blame my editor and not me.
A man called Adnan Al-Shukri Jumaa (Juma, Jumah) is presently in the U.S. and has been assigned the task of detonating the nuclear material. The report does not say whether an actual nuclear bomb was smuggled in or only material to be used for a 'dirty bomb'.
Reports about Jumaa have been circulating for years. His real name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah and he is wanted by the FBI. Shukrijumah has long been rumored to be inside the U.S. awaiting orders to detonate a dirty bomb.
Last month, rumors began circulating that Shukrijumah had been seen in Honduras.
The Pakistani journalist also gave a brief background on Adnan Jumaa. Born in Saudi Arabia, he moved to the US where he met a group of a Al-Qaeda members in the Al-Farouq mosque in New York in 2000. He then traveled to an Arab state and from there to Pakistan then Afghanistan. He left there two years ago and since then has smuggled nuclear material from Mexico to the US. Jumaa has earned the nickname "Al-Qaeda nuclear whizz" and is tagged to play the same role in a future attack as Mohammed Atta did in the 9/11 attacks.
In March 2003 the FBI announced that it was seeking a link between Adnan and others accused of terroris, saying Adnan Jumaa "or maybe one of his several nicknames" had appeared in intelligence information gathered after the arrest of Khalid Sheik Mohammad.
Western media had reported in earlier times that Adnan Jumaa was a Saudi pilot, but the Saudi Ministry of Interior security spokesman lieutanent Mansour Al-Turki said in a statement to Al-Watan newspaper two months ago that Adnan Jumaa is not a Saudi citizen, he was living in the kingdom until he was eleven years old and left along with his parents, who are not Saudis, twenty years ago. In addition, Mir also claims that 300 suicide bombers are now in Kabul and will begin attacking during Ramadan.
Oh, he also says that Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar just met to plan the attacks.
File under: Alarmist news from unreliable sources, but alarming enough to keep an eye out.
Hat tip to Patrick al Kuffar at Clarity and Resolve.
UPDATE: Dan Reihl has more on the Canada connection.
I remember that the Kerry-istas in the US Congress wanted to stall any US military operations in Iraq or Afghanistan during Ramadan- out of "religious respect".
If we fight during Ramadan they might hate us more!
I say tired hungry terrorists are good targets- bomb them during dinner.
YOu should see the way these folks have dinner after their evening prayers(to end the daily fast)-even a pack of scavenging hyenas look civilised when compared to them.
As would most folks after fasting all day, I would imagine.
You need to be a skilled pilot to fly a plane into a building. They were able to obtain that training with little effort. I'd bet some of the things that came out of the Pakistani black market nuke ring included technical manuals and scientific protocols. With a great effort they should be able to obtain copies of these.
Mosque is just another word for holy ammunition dump in many portions of the world...weapons wouldn't be found in any of the churches I've attended.
Um, they might have not used an official crossing, d'ya think?
That it is and I hope that those that need to know know it......no weapons in my church either.
If they've attacked the US they weren't "Christian", and I suspect any other wasn't "Jewish" either. But not to cut off discussion...care to provide specifics?
???...there wasn't any Christians or Jews responsible for the OK City bombing that I'm aware of. Although there is some general rumors that McVeigh might have had contact with muslims.
I was going to make a joke about being downwind from L.A., but the last time I used gallows humor I ticked off a bunch of Freepers.
Not very effective though...only a tiny portion of us ever hear about these claims.
It isn't like this will be in the newspapers.
