Top Al Qaeda operative taken into US custody

10 minutes ago

The United States has taken into custody a top al-Qaeda operative who plotted to assassinate Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and other officials, a Pentagon spokesman said Friday.

Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi, who was taken to the US navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba about a week ago, was intercepted while trying to reach Iraq to take over Al-Qaeda operations and to plot attacks from there against western targets outside Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said.

He is "one of Al-Qaeda's highest ranking and senior operatives at the time of his detention.

Swift, hard and thorough interrogation followed by military trial and swift execution.

Yes, I am sure Leahy would prefer that he be brought into the United States and set free on bond while awaiting his trial where he will be defended by a court-appointed attorney at taxpayer expense, exonerated and apologized to, then given his green card and allowed to bring his family over here.

If it were Bin Laden that had been captured we may as well have let him go as per Romney. He of course said it’s not worth the expense to capture him.

I agree.....then Leahy can’t complain about his rights being violated. Speaking of which, can someone explain, exactly, what rights this guys really has?

He is a non-uniformed, non-state military terrorist. He has actually no rights whatsoever. We could put him against a wall and shoot. We don’t do this. But we should extract any useable information, give him a swift military trial and sentence him to death.

Yes, he should be put against the wall and shot. But first we need to extract some information from him. I understand George Tenet’s new book has good things to say about the efficacy of some of our interrogation methods.

Barack Hussein Obama on Muslims

Obama is also protective of civil rights for Muslims in the U.S., saying, "In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging," he laments.  "I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Obama sponsors Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.

Obama calls the Iraq war "a botched and ill-advised U.S. military incursion into a Muslim country."

Speaking about Malcolm X, Obama said: "Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation."

Obama's pastor Jeremiah A. Wright told The New York Times in an interview, published March 6th:  "When his (Obama's) enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli," with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to visit Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, "a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."

In March, Obama tells the Muscatine, Illinois Dhimmicratic party activists that he supports relaxing restrictions on aid to the Palestinian people.  He said they have suffered the most as a result of stalled peace efforts with Israel.  "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people."

Obama's picture is currently displayed on the page banner of Project Islamic H.O.P.E., a national organization that advocates for the human rights of oppressed People regardless of race, gender or religion.  Project Islamic H.O.P.E. follows the teachings of the Holy Quran and the example of Prophet Muhammad.  They support and follow the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, one of the world’s foremost Islamic leaders.

The Islamic rules

The Islamic website, Light of Life, defines apostasy as follows:

Apostasy can occur by an explicit declaration, such as, "I associate other gods alongside Allah" (usherek billah) ...

The same holds true when a Muslim enters a church, worships an idol, or learns and practices magic, for by magic one glorifies a name other than Allah and ascribes predestination, knowledge and control of fate to someone other than Allah.

All four imams (the founders of the four schools of Islamic law) -- may Allah have mercy upon them -- agree that the apostate whose fall from Islam is beyond doubt -- may Allah forbid it -- must be killed, and his blood must be spilled without reservation.  The hypocrite and heretic (zindiq) who poses as a Muslim but has secretly remained an unbeliever must also be killed.

Now ask yourself this

Why has not a single Imam, Mullah or other Muslim, anywhere in the world, called for Obama to be treated as an apostate?

Kinda makes you wanna go hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Did you know

Muslims practice al Taqiiyya and dissimulation.  These are words used for a practice of Muslims blatantly lying to non-Muslims.  Muslims consider the act of Al-taqiyya or lying to non-Muslims to be a good work.

The rest of your post is useful information, but this one is just silly -- a good conservative and/or libertarian could also support this measure due to the concept that the food in question is not being fraudulently advertised.

Oh please give me a break! Do you know what is involved in Halal Food? When the cow is slaughtered someone has to say a muslim prayer when cutting it in order to become Halal meat. This should not happen in America, this is not a muslim country, period.

CNN reported that the guy was ‘captured’ a few years ago and that the Pentagon was just releasing the info. Did anyone else hear this?

This will become the MSM template for this story if true.
“...nothing to see.... move along, etc.” Leahy will probably start asking questions about ‘secret prisons’, ‘torture’, blah, blah blah!

Guys like this just need to “disappear.”
That way, the al queda wanna-be’s will ask themselves,”what happened to asadullah?” Buddy: “I don’t know, he just went for a motorcycle ride and...”

"Swift, hard and thorough interrogation followed by military trial and swift execution."
Around 1480, give or take, they detained some hermit on suspicion of being a would-be Lorenzo the Magnificent assassin. So, after the customary rack, they skinned the soles of his feet and kept them to the fire till the fat started dripping - and then they made him walk. The guy lasted for about 10-12 days under such interrogation, if memory holds.

I think the Jews in the US did not demand an act of Congress to make all food Kosher. They are not imposing their jewish traditions on anyone.

Unless there's more to it than was quoted, the bill was to ensure that food marketed as "Halal" was actually "Halal". It doesn't force anyone to make "Halal" meats and other products, it just says that anyone who choses to market their products as such actually has to do what they're claiming.

Simple anti-fraud, as far as I'm concerned.

I still say a Dem President would backtrack on campaign promises and continue the war, albeit with reduced enthusiasm but certainly with the complicity of the media.

Did you see the article a couple of days ago talking up KSM’s capture? The guy’s first words to his captors was wondering when he was going to be flown to New York and have his attorney!

Too bad these guys know more about us then the dimwits in Congress know about them.

Musharraf has been a strong ally in the fight against Al Qaeda. Against the Taliban, it's a little more complicated.

Anyway there is no way in hell I would ever mock the failed assassination attempt of an ally of ours in the fight against Al Qaeda.

let’s turn him over to Pakistan. they’ll be swift and just with an attempted assassin, but before that they’ll get 10 times as much intelligence out of him than we could, what with our hands tied and all. give him the Jack Bauer treatment. he’ll wish he’d been at Gitmo.

He was intercepted while trying to reach Iraq. Did he travel through Iran or by sea? If the former is the case did he travel alone and was he given assistance?

Bingo! We have a winner. Mooos-limbs try to get the government to help them with this, then they will rely of power of the federal government to help them with other things, like their ‘freedom of expression’ so they can install minarets, and broadcast their calls to prayer, etc.

This is the camel’s nose in the tent!

The calls to prayer are MUCH different than church bells ringing. In their calls, because they are actually speaking in Islamic, they could be saying anything.
