Skip to comments.Tracking Terrorist Activity on a Map (Vanity)
Posted on 08/12/2006 7:04:53 AM PDT by turbocat
It occurred to me, as well as to many others, that there's a lot going on that appears to be related. Other events simply bring up the questions of whether there is more going on than what we can easily piece together at this point.
So I made a map and will update as events unfold. Perhaps we can look back and have a better idea at the connections between a plot in Britain and cell phone purchases in the US.
No conspiracy theory here, just keeping track.
Sometimes, visuals do wonders. Thanks.
This is a great idea..and thanks!
It looks like a world war.
Great job.....thank you
Thanks - hope this helps.
I sure hope the authorities can connect the dots!
Excellent idea. Thanks for doing this. Weren't there arrests in Canada and Miami recently?
Great work! thank you for your time and efforts, did you get the arrested 3 arrested egyptian students in Des Moines last night?...:|
Some reports say that an arrest on this border cracked this plot to blow up planes. A couple of months ago a predator targeted a terrorist meeting in the area. Were getting close, I think.
Besides, dems have consulted their tarot cards and know that bin Laden will be arrested just before the midterm elections. The cards did not warn them, though, that Israel is about to find Iraqi WMD's in Bekka valley. :)
Nice work! Thanks for the time you put into this.
Americans need to wake up and pictures sometimes do speak louder than words.
The wireless device, called a trac-phone is at the center of the local terror investigation.
The cellular system is providing an anonymous way for insurgents overseas to help plot out their plans.
"Trac-phones, cell phones, it's nothing more than a roadside bomb."
Mark Tilton works for the Washington County Sheriff's Department. He also served a year overseas in Iraq where he faced hundreds of roadside blasts, all created with wireless devices like cell phones and trac-phones.
"I was a platoon leader...we would constantly come in contact with roadside bombs. We'd either find them or get hit by them."
The phone as a whole isn't used to make bombs. In fact, in many countries overseas, including Iraq, cell phone service is rarely availalbe.
It's just the barebones of the device that help create a huge blast.
"They've got someone who is pretty smart...They tear all this apart and just use the guts inside here...no display nothing like that, take a wire out from where an antennae would be."
The wire acts as the receiver. Somebody else, maybe miles away, can dial the phone's number and instead of a ring, it sends a signal to blow.
Tilton says the wireless activiation is the only method he saw being used in Iraq two years ago. He says it's difficult to find the person behind the blast and on the other line.
Not even the battery on the phones are used, because often the bombs are planted, but left for a few days. A phone battery would die, killing the bomb.
In the local investigation, trac-phones may have been chosen by the alleged terrorists, because they are cheap and no service plan is required upon purchase, it's just the phone.
Bookmarked, and thanks!
LOL! Can you imagine the Lib whinning if OBL is captured this fall! It would be priceless! (crossing fingers)
Nope - saw DesMoine this AM and will do an update - thnaks.
Keep the scoop coming.
Have you got any info on Miami and Canadian connections?
They would be fit to be tied! And Rove would be the most cursed man in leftiedom.
