America's real 'most wanted'

Adnan el-Shukrijumah: The man commissioned to nuke U.S.


Posted: September 6, 2005
1:00 a.m. Eastern

Paul Williams, author of the new book, "The Al Qaeda Connection," has stirred a national controversy with his reporting on the imminent nuclear terror threat posed by Osama bin Laden. In this exclusive dispatch, the second of a two-part series first published in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, he details how some of the nuclear devices intended to create an American Hiroshima got here.

Forget the FBI's "America's Most Wanted" list. The most dangerous fugitive in the U.S. is neither James Bulger, the Boston drug dealer who is wanted for 18 counts of murder, nor "Pepe" Lopez-Orozo, the illegal alien who murdered a young mother with two children (ages 2 and 4) in Elmore County, Idaho. It's not even Osama bin Laden, although the emir's name for some strange reason appears on the list. Bin Laden is not living in the U.S. but remains safe and secure within the valley of Dir in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan.


Adnan el-Shukrijumah

The individual who merits the distinction of the "America's most dangerous" fugitive is Adnan el-Shukrijumah, a diminutive, 30-year-old terrorist who stands at 5-foot-4 and weighs 140 pounds.

El-Shukrijumah represents the perfect "sleeper agent," since he speaks English without the slightest hint of an accent and possesses the uncanny abilities to blend into a crowd, to alter his looks, and to assume a multitude of identities. He is the proverbial Mr. Cellophane. Nothing about el-Shukrijumah indicates his radical Islamic orientation. He remains clean-shaven and never wears a long shirt or chews a toothpick. He has been known to have a beer on occasion (like an average American Joe), to smoke an occasional Camel and even to carry rosary beads in his pocket.

El-Shukrijumah's face does not appear on the nightly news, even though a BOLO ("Be-On-the-Lookout") was issued March 21, 2004, by FBI Director Robert Mueller and former Attorney General John Ashcroft.

He is neither the subject of feature articles in leading newspapers nor of special reports on CNN and Fox News, let alone the three major networks.

But no one is more of a threat to the lives and well-being of every man, woman and child within the United States than this ferret-faced terrorist.

Adnan el Shukrijumah, a trained nuclear technician and accomplished pilot, has been singled out by bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri to serve as the field commander for the next terrorist attack on U.S. soil, a nuclear event that is known among al-Qaida planners as "the American Hiroshima."

The terrorist was last seen in Mexico, where, on Nov. 1, 2004, he allegedly hijacked a Piper PA Pawnee cropduster from Ejido Queretaro near Mexacli to transport a nuclear weapon and nuclear equipment into the U.S. The plane's tail number was XBCYP.

A NATURALIZED U. S. CITIZEN

Adnan el-Shukrijumah was born in Guyana Aug. 4, 1975 – the first born of Gulshair el-Shukrijumah, a 44-year-old radical Muslim cleric, and his 16-year-old wife.

In 1985, Gulshair migrated to the United States, where he assumed duties as the imam of the Farouq Mosque in Brooklyn.

The mosque, located at 554 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, has served as a hive for terrorist activities. It has raised millions for the jihad and has served as a recruiting station for al-Qaida. Many of the planners of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, including blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, were prominent members of this notorious "house of worship."

In 1995, the Shukrijumah family relocated to Miramar, Fla., where Gulshair became the spiritual leader of the radical Masjid al-Hijah Mosque, and where Adnan became friends with Jose Padilla, who planned to detonate a radiological bomb in midtown Manhattan; Mandhai Jokhan, who was convicted of attempting to blow up nuclear power plants in southern Florida; and a group of other home-grown terrorists.

TRAINED FOR TERROR

Adnan Shukrijumah attended flight schools in Florida and Norman, Oklahoma, along with Mohammad Atta and the other 9-11 operatives, and he became a highly skilled commercial jet pilot, although he, like Atta and the other terrorists, never applied for a license with the Federal Aviation Commission.

In April 2001, Shukrijumah spent 10 days in Panama, where he reportedly met with al-Qaida officials to assist in the planning of 9-11. He also traveled to Trinidad and Guyana, where virulent al-Qaida cells have been established. The following month, he obtained an associate's degree in computer engineering from Broward Community College.

During this time, he managed to amass passports from Guyana, Trinidad, Saudi Arabia, Canada and the United States. He also began to adopt a number of aliases, including Abu Arifi, Jafar al-Tayyar, Jaafar At Yayyar, Ja'far al-Tayar, and Mohammed Sher Mohammed Khan (the name that appeared on his official FBI file). He traveled to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, where he met with Ramzi Binalshibh, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and other members of the al-Qaida high command. He also spent considerable time within al-Qaeda camps in Afghanistan, where he received training in explosives and special operations.

A NUCLEAR MISSION IN CANADA

Following the success of 9-11, el-Shukrijumah became singled out by bin Laden and al-Zawahiri to spearhead the next great attack on America – a nuclear attack that would take place simultaneously in seven U.S. cities, leaving millions dead and the richest and most powerful nation on earth in ashes.

To prepare for this mission, el-Shukrijumah, along with fellow al-Qaida sleeper agents Anas al-Liby, Jaber A. Elbaneh, and Amer el-Matti, was sent to McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, a facility that boasted a five-megawatt nuclear research reactor, the largest reactor of any educational facility in Canada.

At McMaster, where they may have enrolled under aliases, el-Shukrijumah and his associates reportedly wasted no time in gaining access to the nuclear reactor and stealing more than 180 pounds of nuclear waste for the creation of radiological bombs.

Jane Johnson, a spokesperson for McMaster University, declined to comment on the stay of the al-Qaida operatives at the school. She insisted that such information was confidential.

ALERT ISSUED FOR STOLEN CROP-DUSTER

The Transportation Security Administration has issued an advisory that a Piper PA 25 Pawnee crop-dusting aircraft was stolen from Ejido Queretaro, near Mexicali, Mexico, on Nov. 1.

"Although there is currently no indication that this has any connection to terrorist activity," the TSA said, "the theft is cause for concern. Past information indicates that members of al-Qaida may have planned -- or may still be planning -- to disperse biological or chemical agents from cropdusting aircraft."

The stolen aircraft is registered in Mexico and bears the tail number XBCYP. If you see the aircraft, the TSA says you should immediately contact the TSA General Aviation Hotline at (866) 427-3287, or contact your nearest office of the FBI.

Please give this information widest dissemination.

Advisory – Security Information for Aerial Application Operators/Airports

November 5, 2004

On November 1, 2004, a crop dusting aircraft was stolen from Ejido Queretaro, near Mexicali, Mexico. Although there is currently no indication that this has any connection to terrorist activity, the theft is cause for concern. Past information indicates that members of al-Qa’ida may have planned—or may still be planning—to disperse biological or chemical agents from crop dusting aircraft.

The stolen aircraft has been identified as a Piper PA 25, Pawnee,and is similar to one depicted below. It is registered in Mexico and bears the tail number XBCYP. 

If you see the aircraft described above, you should immediately contact the TSA General Aviation Hotline at (866) 427-3287.  Law enforcement agencies continue to investigate suspicious incidents and inquiries involving crop dusters and spray equipment. In September 2001, the National Agricultural Aviation Association issued an advisory to its members. The advisory warned members to “be vigilant to any suspicious activity relative to the use, training in or acquisition of dangerous chemicals or airborne application of same including threats, unusual purchases, suspicious behavior by employees or customers, and unusual contacts with the public.” The advisory also instructed individuals to report any suspicious circumstances or information to local FBI offices.

TSA wants to remind aerial application operators and airport operators to review the security measures contained in the TSA Information Publication, Security Guidelines for General Aviation Airports (available at http://www.tsa.gov/public/interapp/editorial/editorial_1113.xml), and the National Agricultural Aviation Association security measures (available at www.agaviation.org).   For example, aerial application operators and airport operators are encouraged to consider the following:

  • Store aircraft and crop protection products in locked hangars with electronic security systems when not in use.
  • Park and disable loader trucks, forklifts, or other equipment to block aircraft.
  • In cases where the aircraft must be left outdoors, use propeller locks, propeller chains or tie-downs on aircraft.
  • Remove batteries from planes and disassemble engines from unused aircraft.
  • Install hidden security switches to prevent unauthorized startup of the aircraft.
  • Outdoor security lighting around hangars and operations is encouraged.
  • Establish contact with Federal and local law enforcement agencies to coordinate responses to security breaches at agricultural aviation facilities. Encourage operators to list the appropriate law enforcement agency telephone numbers in a prominent place within their operations.

Persons should report any suspicious activity immediately to local law enforcement and the TSA General Aviation Hotline at 866-GASECUR (866-427-3287).

So why would someone hijack a plane to smuggle a nuclear bomb into the country?

That's the last thing they'd do. They don't want to increase suspicion and increase the chances of getting caught by using a stolen plane. A nuke would be their most prized possession. They'd just buy a plane and quietly bring it in.

It is these sorts of claims that make me not buy the story. They simply don't make sense. Of course bringing it over the border in a small plane doesn't really make sense either...

That happened the other day too. I guess it's an internal link on WND. Just go to the original source article and use the links there.

Sorry!

Like I said, fact check is recommended. There's something to this, but perhaps not what the author is claiming.

It's one thing to connect the dots, but the space in between the dots is anybody's guess.

How do you walk out of the door with this much stuff and nobody misses it?

I just searched for Piper and the tail number. All sorts of stuff came up for that.

Such a plane could be used to spritz a radioactive mixture over an urban area, to dirty bomb it.

Would it be possible that they didn't walk out with waste that the reactor was known to have generated, but rather with other material that they had brought in and exposed to the radiation in the reactor. If they brought in some U-238 (the most common isotope of uranium) they could irradiate it in the reactor and make themselves some plutonium.

Perhaps, or it could just get shot out of the sky as it crosses the border... We look hard for unauthorized planes crossing the border. It is MUCH easier to cross the border on the ground.

I'd have an easier time believing this if he could provide a shred of evidence to back his assertions. How does Williams know that the crop-duster was stolen to fly a nuclear weapon into the country? How does he know there will precisely seven nuclear attacks? How is stealing 180lbs of 'nuclear waste' (what kind?) connected to setting off nukes? Radiological bombs and nuclear weapons are totally different things. Or is this part of another attack plan the intrepid Williams has smoked out?

Highly dubious.

I think if they had one nuke in the US we would know where it is located by the mushroom cloud.

This is total BS.

But if they nuke the US we should nuke Mecca as a start.

The distinction between a dirty bomb and a nuke should be made by the author. The other details you list are also important. Like I said in the first post, fact check needs to be made with this guy. He's on to something, though, that should not be discounted.

Bush, Cheney, Goss, Kerrey, and many others with access to more intel than us, have all stated that ALQueda is p[lanning a nuke attack of some kind.

This guy has a US passport,180 pounds of radiological waste, and the ability to blend in. This could be really bad.
