Engaging Jihadists Head-On: My Response to Abu Talhah al-Amrikee
JARRET ^ | April 23, 2010 | Jarret Brachman

Posted on 04/24/2010 4:01:08 AM PDT by Cindy

Abu Talhah al-Amrikee, avowed South Park critic, American hardline jihadi-Salafi, who admins The Mujahid Blog, contributes to and a reader/interlocutor of this blog recently published a piece to his website entitled, “Fomenting Disunity in the Counterterrorism Movement.”

I can appreciate the overall thrust of Abu Talhah’s approach (seeking to divide and conquer) as it’s one that I’ve embraced in my own writings and thinking about how degrade al-Qaida movements. The approach was actually the conceptual backbone of the “Stealing AQ’s Playbook,” article that I co-authored in 2006, which has been cited now several times by Ayman al-Zawahiri specifically because of how it turns his own words against him.

I have since sought to refine and advance this methodology because when it comes to counterterrorism, the devil is in the details. Curiously, al-Qaida has also been honing this methodology, most provocatively in The Power of Truth and most recently in The West and the Dark Tunnel.

My approach since 2006 has been to let my adversary guide me.

“Evidence: Yes, Abu Talhah al Amrike Really Did Threaten South Park Creators”
By Rusty Shackleford, Ph.D. at April 26, 2010 03:58 PM

SNIPPET: “First, no one ever accused Zach of being brave. Instead of fighting for Allah, he is safe in suburban Washington, DC.”

SNIPPET: “Before he ever posted on Revolution Muslim he twittered the same sentiments and also posted on an Islamic Forum. I archived both of these threats knowing in advance that once this hit the media Zach would pull back and try to explain them away (just like his mentors Samir Khan and Yousef al Khattab once did).”

SNIPPET: “First, the Twitter threat:”

SNIPPET: “And a screenshot.

Sounds like a threat to me.”

SNIPPET: “Okay, maybe. But then how do we explain Zach’s threat posted over at the Ansar forum?”

SNIPPET: “Here’s an image of that part of the original post.”

SNIPPET: “And how do we know this is the same Zach Chesser who goes by the online name of “Abu Zacharia” and “Abu Talhah al-Amrike”? Here’s how the post was signed:”

SNIPPET: “The Mujahid Blog being owned by one Zachary Chesser, formerly of George Mason University, and more recently seen doing street Dawah — not in New York, as is being reported by the MSM, but in Washington DC and in nearby mosques.”
