SNIPPET: "So, Im finally sitting down with this 149 page-book, entitled, The Ruling on the Muslim Spy. Here s what Ive noticed off-the-bat about Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiris forward."
SNIPPET: "But then I remembered that the big-daddy al-Zawahiris best-of list can be extracted from his winding book, Exoneration. In this book, al-Zawahiri drafts his all-star list, which includes everyone above and a whole lot more. Its a whos who of contemporary jihadi thought.
Test yourself and see how many you can identify. Theres some little gems buried in this list

On that site, I saw another interesting article..., and it said —
Michael Scheuer, an al-Qaida analyst whose 2005-2006 writings on al-Qaida strategy I found to be insightful, has come under fire for comments he made last night on the Glen Beck Show. Heres one quote from the below interview:
The only chance we have, as a country right now, is for Usama bin Ladin to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States. (Michael Scheuer on Glen Beck)
That is the only “chance” that this country has of succeeding against the evil, oppressive and dictatorial governmental system, called “Islam”....
It’s unfortunate but true...

New Al-Qaeda Book Betrays Panic Over Predator Strikes, Covert Operations
SNIPPET: On June 29, 2009, jihadist websites posted a new 150-page book by senior Al-Qaeda commander Abu Yahya Al-Libi titled Guide to the Laws Regarding Muslim Spies. The books two introductions, one by Ayman Al-Zawahiri and one by Abu Yahya himself, make it clear that it was written in an attempt to find a means of dealing with the recent campaign of Predator strikes and other covert operations against Al-Qaeda and Taliban targets in Waziristan. The two Al-Qaeda commanders, and Abu Yahya in particular, betray deep distress at the devastating effectiveness of the shadow war against Al-Qaeda, as well as paranoia regarding the ubiquity of hidden enemies.

A Note About Americas New CT Strategy
(Added August 7, 2009)
SNIPPET: “Consider this. In al-Zawahiris new video (Fact/Hypocrisy), he identifies another list of non-AQ dudes who AQ likes and looks to for guidance. They include:
Shaykh Hassan Al-Banna
Shaykh Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam
Professor Abdel Qader Uda
Shaykh Ahmed Shakir
Shaykh Muhammad Hamid Al-Fiqhi
Shaykh Muhammad Khalil Harras
Shaykh Adel Razzaq Afifi
Shaykh Muhammad Al-Awdan
Professor Sayyid Qutb
Shaykh Salah Abu Ismail
Shaykh Abdullah Azzam
Shaykh Ahmed Yassin
Shaykh Hammud Al-Uqla
Commander Shamil Basayev
President Aslam Maskhadov
President Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev
Shaykh Abu Omar Al-Sayf
Shaykh Nidham Al-Din Shamzai
Shaykh Mawlawi Abdullah Ghazi
Abdul Rashid Ghazi
Shaykh Muhammad Yunus Khalis
Shaykh Omar Abdul Rahman
Shaykh Abu Al-Mundhir Al-Saidi
Shaykh Abu Qatada Al-Falastini
Shaykh Abu Al-Walid Al-Falastini
Shaykh Nasir Ibn Muhammad Al-Fahd
Shaykh Abdullah Dhakiri
Jalal Al-Din Haqqani
Shaykh Fadhli Muhammad
Shaykh Muhammad Yasir
Shaykh Hussein Omar Ibn Mahfud
Shaykh Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi
Shaykh Abu Abdullah Al-Muhajir
Shaykh Yusuf Abu Hilala
Shaykh Hamid Al-Ali
Shaykh Abu Basir Al-Suri
Im sure Abu Musab al-Suri will be devastated not to have made the list (weird that he didnt b/c they were chums) but this should show you that AQ reaches far and wide. Remember, this list ought to be added to the previous lists that Ive published from al-Zawahiri. It becomes clear that this is more than a group, or a network of groups or even a network of networks -
Were dealing with an ideology that has a long and complex history, a wide wingspan and entrenched doctrinal roots.
If were not going to call it the global jihadist movement or global jihadism then I would ask Mr. Brennan to offer some thoughts on how we can acceptably discuss the body of thought that underlies groups like al-Qaida. We need to be able to describe the the ideas, doctrine, personalities, writings, interviews, imagery, operations, processes and more that, when taken together, comprise this ideology. It transcends al-Qaida.”
