US sniper 'linked to terror cult'

US sniper 'linked to terror cult'
By James Langton in New York, Evening Standard
14 October 2003

Evidence has emerged linking Washington sniper John Allen Muhammad with an Islamic terror group.

Muhammad has been connected to Al Fuqra, a cult devoted to spiritual purification through violence.

The group has been linked to British shoe bomber Richard Reid and the murderers of American journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan last year.

Muhammad today stands trial for murder after bringing terror to America's suburbs along with a 17-year-old accomplice, Lee Malvo.

Until now many believed that the killing spree, which left 10 dead, was the work of a loner. But investigators suspect the 42-year-old former soldier was an Islamic terrorist and believe his insanity plea is a cover story to disguise his support for fundamentalists.

It seems clear that Muhammad saw his actions as linked to earlier terrorist outrages in America. He bought his Chevrolet Caprice car used in the attacks on the first anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

I don't believe a word of it. He isn't a straight white male Christian gun-owning member of the Republican party.

I knew it was al Qaeda - and likely the government did as well - almost from the first day.

I wonder if the prosecution is going to say anything about this at the trials of the snipers.

If there was a conspiracy, shouldn't other people be facing criminal charges?

Hey the guy is a mass murderer and a muslim. So why the hesistation to call him a muslim terrorist? Why the need to find "links" to a terror group? There is no need to find a "link" to a "group". Islam is the terror group.

"Terror Cult". Interesting choice of words, especially with the young guy pleading insanity. My first reading didn't equate "terror" with terrorism. I guess that may have been the intent....

Chief Moose probably knew it too, and apparently did a good deal to throw investigators off the trail.

Speaking of Chief Moose, I wonder how the hijackers on 9/11 knew about the exercise that NORAD was holding that morning. The commander of a security unit at Andrews Air Force Base (as Moose was and is) would have known about that exercise.

Yes, and a member of that cell worked as an intern in the city government of Portland for a while. If memory serves, that member may even have had something to do with the police department.

Excellent post, I wonder when this story will break in a US paper.

Pretty sure it was the Oregon cell....Amongst a huge weapons cache, they found a single .223??(whatever M& M used). I speculated that that single shell was a "buddy" keepsake..The single bullet was listed in the affidavit.

And if that trucker hadn't happened along at the rest stop where they were sleeping, the MooseMan would probably still be looking for that white guy in a white van.

Yep when the POS and big time liar PC Moose was lying about white guys in a white van, many of us were saying check out al Fuqra.

Sounds like someone has connected the Black Muslim/al Fuqra dots.

You are right, it has been about two years since we lighted the al fugra tree to chase them out of certain areas.

There are still a lot of al Fuqra rats slithering around in their mosques and "training grounds"! Good for you putting them in your book.

What is the name of that book, again?
