GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) Palestinian security officials say Palestinian security officer killed in Israeli tank shelling in Gaza.
CaptainsQuartersBlog.com: "THE TIMING OF THE IRAQI AIR FORCE MEMO" (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Now that we have established the translation of the memo from the Iraqi Air Force general to all units requesting volunteers for suicide missions against American "interests", the timing of the memo appears to fit into a disturbing sequence in the months prior to 9/11. This memo is dated March 17, 2001, less than six months prior to the coordinated al-Qaeda attack on the US, at a time when the AQ plotters and pilots appeared to be in close proximity to Iraqi intelligence agents in Europe. In a series of posts I wrote last year, I pointed out activity in Germany by the Iraqi Intelligence Service that the 9/11 Commission missed. Specifically, the Germans arrested two IIS agents in late February for their operation of an espionage ring in their country. Their intelligence estimate in 2002 would later claim that Iraq had reached out to extremists Islamist groups to coordinate attacks on American interests. In the winter of 2001, however, those agents had operated in Germany at the same time as Mohammed Atta met Ramzi Binalshibh in Berlin, the same time that German counterintelligence picked up the trail of the Iraqi spies. Ziad Jarrah, another of the 9/11 pilots, traveled through Germany at least twice during the same time frame. Pilot Marwan al-Shehhi disappeared in Casablanca and told people he was in Hamburg, which may or may not have been a dodge. The only pilot not in Germany during this time was Hani Hanjour, who plowed his plane into the Pentagon.") (April 9, 2006)

WND TOP STORY: Plane carrying House members fired on with Russian
Three congressman have confirmed they were aboard a C-130 flight to Kuwait from Iraq in January when they were attacked by a sophisticated Russian SA-18 shoulder-fired missile that required the U.S. plane to employ high-technology countermeasures to avoid being hit. They were lucky the leased commercial aircraft transporting troops aren't equipped to with those sophisticated countermeasures.

Pulled for sure!
FBI probe that snared Padilla began in 1993
No, not pulled...just a little url correction needed.
Thanks for pointing to this article JP.

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Three congressman have confirmed they were aboard a C-130 flight to Kuwait from Iraq in January when they were attacked by a sophisticated Russian SA-18 shoulder-fired missile that required the U.S. plane to employ high-technology countermeasures to avoid being hit.
They were lucky the leased commercial aircraft transporting troops aren't equipped to with those sophisticated countermeasures.
Reps. Jeb Bradley, R-N.H., John Spratt, D-S.C., and Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, confirmed the incident to The San Francisco Chronicle. They were part of a six-member delegation of the House Armed Services Committee, led by Rob Simmons, R-Conn."
MsM is gonna love this!
Oh, I'm serious =g=
From link at previous post
"The FBI probe began in 1993, the same year that al-Qaida first attempted to topple the World Trade Center towers with bombs in an underground garage. It was also the year radical Egyptian cleric Omar Abdel Rahman was arrested on charges of plotting to bomb New York landmarks and assassinate Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. He was later convicted.
Thousands of telephone calls between those charged in the Miami case were monitored by the FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies over more than a decade, but no one was arrested in the case until June 2002 and no terror-related charges were brought until October 2004.
One reason for that was a legal "wall" that existed for years at the FBI to separate intelligence and criminal investigations. Passage of the Patriot Act by Congress a few weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks removed that wall, allowing criminal investigators access to a vast trove of intelligence intercepts, wiretaps and informants."

Stranger things have happened...

Thank you JP.
Bush 'is planning nuclear strikes on Iran's secret sites'
The Bush administration is planning to use nuclear weapons against Iran, to prevent it acquiring its own atomic warheads, claims an investigative writer with high-level Pentagon and intelligence contacts.
President George W Bush is said to be so alarmed by the threat of Iran's hard-line leader, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, that privately he refers to him as "the new Hitler", says Seymour Hersh, who broke the story of the Abu Ghraib Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal.
Welcome! Cindy- do we have any special significance to Monday's date?
The SA-18 GROUSE (Igla 9K38) is an improved variant in the the SA-7 & SA-14 series of manportable SAMs. As with the earlier SA-14, the SA-18 uses of a similar thermal battery/gas bottle, and the SA-18 has the same 2 kilogram high-explosive warhead fitted with a contact and grazing fuse. But the missile of entirely new design with substantially improved range and speed,. The new seeker and aerodynamic improvements extend its effective range, and its higher speed enables it to be used against faster targets. The SA-18 has a maximum range of 5200 meters and a maximum altitude of 3500 meters. The 9M39 missile SA-18 employs an IR guidance system using proportional convergence logic. The new seeker offers better protection against electro-optical jammers; the probability of kill against an unprotected fighter is estimated at 30-48%, and the use of IRCM jammers only degrades this to 24-30%.
Most of my dates of interest (to me) are Christian and Jewish Holy days coming up.
This week is Palm Sunday (today), Jewish Passover and Good Friday.
Next Sunday is Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter) and Monday the 17th
is Easter Monday in Canada.
You might check "Today in History" or http://www.historychannel.com to check for other recorded events and/or holidays.
Thanks alot for the info Cindy, thought I may have missed something
No, you haven't missed anything (that I know of).
Michelle Malkin has this event listed for Monday, April 10th in her blog:
For Catholics & protestants, it is the beginning of the "journey to Jerusalem". Jesus began his final entery into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It's called the Holy week leading to Easter. Monday begins the hardest walk of Christ.
Tuesday is Islamic "Prophet's Birthday"... I have no idea what it's about.
Would you add it to the Immigration thread? I'd so appreciate it! I pinged you!

8 Men Found Slain on Canadian Farmland
SHEDDEN, Ontario - The bodies of eight men were found Saturday inside four vehicles abandoned in a remote wooded area on a farmer's property.
Police were not disclosing many details about the deaths in rural Ontario, about 20 miles southwest of the city of London, except to say that four vehicles were involved, including a tow truck, and that the dead were all men.
"We're not in a position to reveal how they were murdered," Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Dave Rektor said.

"Canada Police: 8 Slain Men Knew Each Other"
Apr 9th - 9:54am
BY ROB GILLIES Associated Press Writer
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "TORONTO (AP) - Eight men found dead inside abandoned vehicles in a remote wooded area of a farmer's property were all from greater Toronto and all knew each other, Canadian police said Sunday."
ARTICLE SNIPPET #2: "The area has been home to several motorcycle clubs, including the Loners, the Bandidos and the Hell's Angels. It has witnessed several violent incidents, including the discoveries of two bodies dumped in county fields in separate incidents in 1994 and 1998.
Both were beaten to death. Neither of the murders has been solved."
"New Jersey High School Principal Says Student Tip Prevented Massacre"
Saturday, April 08, 2006
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. Two girls provided high school officials with a tip that led police to charge four boys with planning a lunch-period massacre, the school's interim principal said.
Authorities have said the boys ages 14 to 16 planned to attack students, teachers and others at Winslow Township High. Their names were not released because of their ages."
I can understand why you feel that way, but I look at it differently. I see it as the jihadis being so poorly trained that they don't know to use the right arms...thus wasting the arms that they do possess.
The SA-7 through SA-18 manpads are wholly unsuitable for bringing down big birds. There was one commercial jet hit by one of those weapons back in 2003 or 2004 and the pilot landed with no casualties...plane was repaired and flew again. 5 pounds or less of high-ex isn't going to bring down very many 50,000 pound aircraft (much less larger birds).
The soviets only built them as nuissance weapons...just to give our jet pilots a 2nd thought about flying low.
But by firing at a jet, the jihadists wasted a missile that could have caused U.S. casualties in a helicopter...so I see this as a good thing for us.
Let them waste their ammo; it's good that they don't know any better.
Just a quick note. My brother is alert, awake and breathing (mostly) on his own. Still in the woods, but Drs very pleased with his progress. He's showing some of his humor which is also good. All your prayers have been very appreciated.
"...it's good that they don't know any better."
OPINION: Ditto and Amen to that.
Well now that is SUPER!
Thanks Godzilla...will keep praying.
