Al-Qaeda witch-hunt in Pakistan's army
By Syed Saleem Shahzad

KARACHI - With the capture in Pakistan of Libyan Abu Faraj al-Libbi of al-Qaeda, wanted in connection with two assassination attempts against President General Pervez Musharraf in 2003, Pakistani authorities are stepping up investigations into al-Qaeda's investment in the Pakistan army.

Information gleaned from well-connected military analysts suggests that army officials connected with the Afghan cell during the Taliban period in Afghanistan (1996-2001) are likely to be in the firing line. Action is expected soon against several serving and retired army personnel.

Attention Ham Radio Operators.

Thanks for the reminder. Perhaps I can break a perfect streak of non-participation since 1976. I have a neighbor who loves field day activities. He invited to join him last year. My boss promptly scheduled an out of town trip to ensure that I could not.

109 Terrorists, Series of Weapons Caches Snared in Iraq Raids

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, May 8, 2005 – Multinational force operations netted 109 terrorists and suspects throughout Iraq today and May 7, and included finding large weapons caches.
In simultaneous operations conducted early today north of the town of Al Qaim, 54 terrorists within the circle of known terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi were captured or killed, according to Multinational Force Iraq officials today. Coalition forces also destroyed car bombs, bomb-making material and two buildings that contained large weapons caches to include hand- and rocket-propelled grenades.

Multiple sources of intelligence indicate that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's key lieutenants, suicide bombers and a large population of foreign fighters are located in the region in and around Al Qaim, near the Syrian border.

In recent months, terrorists operating in this unstable region attacked Iraqis and coalition forces, established safe houses and helped move foreign fighters, weapons and money from Syria into Iraq.

In other action May 7, Task Force Baghdad raids snared 38 terror suspects in the Baghdad area, including two high-value targets in a series of early morning raids May 7.

The raids included getting 29 suspected terrorists in the largest strike of the day in south Baghdad. And a separate operation detained five more suspected terrorists, one thought to be the leader of a terror cell in southwest Baghdad. There, troops also found 1,000 rounds of assault-rifle ammunition in a burlap bag covered with mud.

In addition, U.S. soldiers on patrol in east Baghdad also found another weapons cache containing two mortar rounds and 10 rocket-propelled grenades.

In Babil province May 7, Multinational Division Central South forces detained 17 terror suspects during cordon-and-search operations. Iraqi, Polish, Salvadoran and U.S. troops conducted the combined operation in an area of Al Mashru, capturing anti-Iraqi and anti-coalition forces, illegal weapons and ammunition.

Elsewhere, Marines and soldiers of Multinational Force West recently discovered and destroyed hundreds of weapons and tons of ammunition found in 13 hidden caches near Al Amiriyah in Anbar province. The find was the largest in recent months in western Iraq.

Marines of 3rd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, and soldiers of the 155th Brigade Combat Team unearthed a series of caches April 27 while they were conducting cordon-and-search operations. The caches took nearly a week to uncover, catalog and destroy.

The caches contained significant numbers of weapons and explosives that could be used in attacks on Iraqi citizens, Iraqi security forces and coalition forces. Items included more than 4,100 mortar rounds, more than 800 rocket-propelled grenade rounds, more than 100,000 rounds of machine-gun ammunition, more than 400 grenades, and several thousand pounds of different types of explosives and bomb-making material.

Some materials were buried, while others were in underground bunkers. Most of the weapons and ammunition were in good condition and ready for use.

20 Insurgents, 9 Afghan Soldiers Die in Firefight

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, May 8, 2005 – Afghan National Army and U.S. soldiers killed an estimated 20 insurgents during a prolonged firefight at an isolated compound just north of Kandahar on May 4, military officials reported here today.
The action also killed nine Afghan National Army soldiers and wounded four ANA soldiers, one U.S. soldier and one insurgent. At least five suspected insurgent members are in coalition custody, officials said. All wounded individuals were evacuated to Kandahar Airfield.

The fighting occurred during a joint operation with ANA and U.S. battalions to strengthen Afghanistan government authority in the region.

Coalition forces reported fighting with two groups of five to eight individuals May 4 inside a small walled compound. A second engagement, this time scattered around the compound, occurred as coalition aircraft responded to the scene.

Fighting reportedly died down overnight, but by early May 5 coalition forces noted resumed activity inside the compound and detained five individuals.

The four wounded ANA and U.S. soldiers were treated at the U.S. hospital at Kandahar Airfield. All five have since returned to duty.

Good Morning all . . .

*Off topic*

I went on a 20 hour road trip to Toronto this weekend. Despite the hellish traffic jams there was an eerie lack of Canadian flags flying. I counted about 4 in six hours.

Major hassles coming back into the states. We must have fit some kinda profile. They dug through dirty cloths and even took out the spare tire. Looking for drugs or alcohol I think. And Never asked for IDs.

We all should be very concerned about who they let into the states. I think the whole "passport" thing may be a good idea. IMHO

B2W (back to work)

Good morning folks.

Saw a report this morning about the US training for air strikes on Iran.

>> The Pentagon, according to calculated leaks, is polishing a contingency plan for 240 air strikes over three days, including Tomahawk cruise missiles, to set Iran's nuclear plans back 10 years. <<

IMHO, this is looking more and more likely. IF we do hit Iran, they will hit back though terrorist attacks where ever they are able.

I was reading Godzilla's Terrorism Summary (another great job by Godzilla) and noted that there are no current attack indicators. This kind of worries me. I ask myself what is going on that we don't know about but should know about. Just as we have contingency plans we must know that the terrorists have contingency plans as well. In other words, they have plans that we don't know about.

As always, we need to be ready for anything. Just like the 911 attacks, the next attacks will come without warning.
