AL-QAEDA'S MR. NUCLEAR TO HEAD FRESH ATTACK ON U.S.
adnkronosinternational ^ | 12 September 2006

Posted on 09/12/2006 4:13:48 PM PDT by Fithal the Wise

Dubai, 12 Sept. (AKI) - Osama bin Laden is planning to carry out new, more destructive attacks inside the United States, and there is someone working on this terror plot currently in the US, according to Hamid Mir, the famed Pakistani journalist who obtained the only post-9/11 interviews with Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri. In an interview quoted on the website of the al-Arabiya television network, Mir spoke about his last trip to Afghanistan and his meeting with al-Qaeda members and Taliban leaders.

In his interview with Al.Arabiya.net, Mir said that the al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters referred to attacks targeting the US-led coalition forces during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan which begins on 24 September, and that the al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden was in "good" health during a meeting he had recently with the Taliban leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar.

Mir also said that bin Laden has assigned a man named Adnan Al-Shukri Juma to carry out a new attack within the US which is intended to be larger than the 11 September, 2001 attacks. According to Mir, Adnan Jumaa has smuggled explosives and nuclear materials into the US through the Mexican border over the last two years and is hiding somewhere in America where the FBI has not been able to locate him.

The Pakistani journalist also gave a brief background on Adnan Jumaa. Born in Saudi Arabia, he moved to the US where he met a group of a Al-Qaeda members in the Al-Farouq mosque in New York in 2000. He then traveled to an Arab state and from there to Pakistan then Afghanistan. He left there two years ago and since then has smuggled nuclear material from Mexico to the US. Jumaa has earned the nickname "Al-Qaeda nuclear whizz" and is tagged to play the same role in a future attack as Mohammed Atta did in the 9/11 attacks.

In March 2003 the FBI announced that it was seeking a link between Adnan and others accused of terroris, saying Adnan Jumaa "or maybe one of his several nicknames" had appeared in intelligence information gathered after the arrest of Khalid Sheik Mohammad.

Western media had reported in earlier times that Adnan Jumaa was a Saudi pilot, but the Saudi Ministry of Interior security spokesman lieutanent Mansour Al-Turki said in a statement to Al-Watan newspaper two months ago that Adnan Jumaa is not a Saudi citizen, he was living in the kingdom until he was eleven years old and left along with his parents, who are not Saudis, twenty years ago.

Adnan Al-Shukri's name has been mentioned in many Western media reports claiming that Al-Qaeda has acquired nuclear technology. The American writer, Paul Williams, in his book " The Al-Qaeda Connection: International Terrorism, Organized Crime, and the Coming Apocalypse", says he was among a number of Al-Qaeda members trained for the nuclear technology.

On another issue, Hamid Mir spoke to Alarabiya.net of his last trip to Afghanistan and his meeting with a leader of Taliban named "Khaibar" in Zabul who claimed that 300 Taliban suicide bombers had managed to sneak into Kabul and Jalalabad to carry out attacks against coalition troops during Ramadan.

Mir alleges that there was a meeting between Bin Laden and Mullah Omar several few weeks ago in the mountain area of Zabul where they planned more attacks, "I received this piece of information from one of the Taliban leaders who attended the meeting himself and I met him recently in Afghanistan" Mir said. "He told me that this was the second meeting between the two men since last year and that Bin Laden's health seemed good while he was eating with Mullah Mohammad Omar.

The Pakistani journalist expressed his surprise of the changing situation in Afghanistan; saying that the Taliban had come back to rule some areas and spread their special courts, their special administrations, nothing that even some police officials follow their orders.

Found this potentially very significant article on the Michael Savage website. The source, Hamid Mir has some very good credentials. See

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamid_Mir

Hope there is some followup on this.

Absurd nonsense. Just the usual bellicose ranting of the incompetent and the impotent. They count on the drama queen nature of the US Junk Media to blindly regurgitate their threats and ranting.

The mention of his health is telling. He's either dead or on his death bed. Islamists always lie.

And people on Free Republic to hand wring over it...they've been ranting the same nonsense for year. Nuclear materials are not so easily smuggled into Mexico much less across the US border as people want to believe. It's highly radioactive for one thing. It's not likely something you just throw in a duffle bag. Geez...

A nuke right up our butt may finally wake up the Democrats and liberals as to the seriousness of the world situation with respect to the Islamofacists. Maybe then we can get on with this war on terror with dedicated earnest. I am afraid an American Nuke would be the needed catalyst.

Hamid Mir has been peddling this nonsense for years.

He's tag-teaming the "bin laden has nukes" recipe with Paul Williams.

Take one part "anything can be smuggled through the Mexican border," blend in two parts nuclear ignorance and top with a pinch of the truth.

If it were this easy for bin laden to get the bomb, Iran would have had one years ago.

Sadly, though it be speculation I believe the democrats have fully embraced fascism in this country. Were such a tragic event to occur I can picture the usual fascist suspects (Kerry, Kennedy) on TV the hour after the explosion stating why America deserved this. (An hour after that, Judge Lynch would be settling the outcome of the next election)

Even a nuclear strike in America would not matter to many unilateral disarmament democrats.

Their line: "This was all Bush's fault. Now since they have nukes we must stop our unjust war before we force them to hit us again"

This sounds ridiculous but you know it would happen.

The plane plot was suggested, tried, planned, tried again, updated from the early 1990s.

They finally succeeded with it.

Recall all the naysayers in the US in the 90s who said they would never use planes as missiles.

IF this is true, then the Bushbots who say illegal immigration has no connection with terrorism will be proved wrong.

Not only that. The simplest thing for terrorists with the money and resources Al Qeda have is to hire a private boat and sail it into a US Harbor or rent a small plane in Canada and fly it across the border. This "smuggle it across the Mexican border" is just to transparently in line with the Savage wack jobs ranting about the border.

I think you mean not very much will be from Christian, Jewish or secularist males of European descent. Last I checked, the vast majority of Arabs, all Persians, Pakistanis, Afghans, Azeris, Bosniacs, Albanians, and a fair number of other, smaller other majority Muslim ethnic groups are caucasians.

"Sadly, though it be speculation I believe the democrats have fully embraced fascism in this country."

You do not know how astute your comment is.

The popular myth among the "Bush is Hitler crowd" is that Hitler arose from the hard conservative politics of Wiemar Germany. The fact is that the National Socialists arose from an amalgamation of extremists from both the right and the left. The true conservative right in Germany at that time were weak and the socialists were very vocal and were a strong political power. Essentially the National Socialists co-opted the socialists to create the Third Riech as we know it today.

If you are confused as to who the true fascists are:


CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL POLICY

The Social Democratic Party is striving for the abolition of the educational privileges of the propertied classes.
Education, schooling, and research are public matters; their operation is to be secured through public institutions and the expenditure of public funds. The provision of instruction and instructional materials free of charge. Economic support for pupils and students.
The public institutions of education, schooling, culture and research are secular. All legally grounded interference in these institutions by churches and religious or ideological communities is to be opposed. Separation of church and state. Separation of church and schools. Secular technical and occupational schools and institutions of higher education. No expenditure of public monies for ecclesiastical or religious purposes.
The unified structuring of the school system. The creation of the closest possible relations between practical and intellectual labor on all levels.
The common education of both sexes by both sexes.
Standardized training of teachers in colleges and universities. [...]

Program of SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (SPD)

Nope. It would make the passive middle more attentive to the fact that we are at war for a few years. But it would do nothing to change the minds of most liberals--it would just be W's fault, "if we only hadn't invaded Iraq, supported Zionist oppressors, ignored Kyoto, ignored the wiser heads in France and Germany and wasted their sympathy, put panties on guys heads, and flushed korans down the toilet, this wouldn't have happened. . . blah blah blah."

To be sure, libs would go silent for a while the way they did after 911 and then be back to their destructive tricks when they think it's safe to be libs again.
