“FBI says Mexican violence may be moving north”

“The FBI is warning that one of Mexico’s most brutal drug cartels could be making a renewed push... here... in the United States.”
By Michael Board
Wednesday, October 29, 2008

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “There’s a renewed worry that Mexico’s drug war violence will spill over into the United States.

“We’re talking about a very specific group called Los Zetas,” FBI Special Agent Eric Vasys tells 1200 WOAI news radio. “They are a paramilitary drug trafficking group operating in Mexico who have been known to conduct some operations in the united states.

The FBI’s San Antonio field office has put out a joint assessment bulletin, warning that one of Mexico’s most brutal drug cartels is trying to regain control of the major trafficking routes. The Zetas are well known in Texas for their brutality. Vasys says the bulletin is a warning for all law enforcement.”

Pastor Kidnapped in Tijuana

By Jackie O’Neal

Special to ASSIST News Service
TIJUANA, MEXICO (ANS) — According to the Baptist Press http://bpnews.net over a week has elapsed since San Diego pastor, Manuel Jesus Tec was abducted on Oct. 21 in Tijuana, the Mexican border town.

His family still continues not to get word of him. Mickey Noah writing for The Baptist Press went on to say that the kidnappers demanded a $1 million dollar ransom for Tec’s safe return, but two calls earlier this week, revealed the kidnappers lowered the ransom amount to $ 500,00 and subsequently to $ 200,000.

The Baptist Press reported that Pastor Manuel Jesus Tec, 59 was kidnapped after crossing the border from San Diego into Tijuana with his family, wife, Maria and son, Giovanni. The kidnappers stopped the car around 5 a.m. and sequestered Tec, but left his wife and child free and unharmed.

Tijuana continues to have a reputation as a dangerous border town for visitors and residents alike. An axis for drug traffic, rival gang conflicts have been the cause for the deaths of an estimated 2,000 persons last year.

Tijuana estimates show a homicide nearly daily and two abductions a week on average.

Johnny Tec said, “We are totally hopeful and faith-filled. Mom is holding up pretty good. We’ve been holding prayer meetings every night at the house and we give credit to the prayers of so many people out there.”

Russia Agrees To Build Choppers In Iran

Russia has agreed to commence cooperation with Iran on mass producing semi-heavy helicopters in the country, an Iranian official said.

The deal will see Russian firm Kamov cooperate with Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO) on designing and producing civilian helicopters.

“Under the agreement, more than 50 helicopters including in a new and civil design of the Kamov Ka-32A will be manufactured inside Iran,” the CEO of the AIO, Majid Hedayat, said on October 29.

The Kamov Ka-32A is a compact air transporter, capable of operating without ground support. It is designed for search and rescue missions as well as medical and emergency evacuation, loading and unloading ships at sea, and offshore operations.

The announcement comes a day after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said the newly imposed US sanctions on Russian state arms trader Rosoboronexport would not stop Moscow from engaging in military cooperation with Tehran.

Saudi official says kingdom foiled 2003 plot to hijack plane and blow it up over a US city
StarTribune ^ | 11/2/08 | DONNA ABU-NASR/AP
Posted on November 2, 2008 3:15:05 PM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo

Saudi Arabia foiled a 2003 terror plot by militants who planned to hijack a plane and blow it up over a densely populated American city, a Saudi official said Sunday.

The official said the plan, first reported Sunday in government-guided Al-Watan newspaper, was for the attackers to transit through the U.S. to another destination so they could avoid applying for hard-to-get American visas required for Saudis. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said the militants were preparing to execute the alleged plot when it was halted.

For those of you who do’t follow the forums, media materials are not uploaded directly to the forum servers but rather to third-party sites; the links are then posted to the forums. As Aaron and Marisa have observed in the past, the third-party site of preference has been archive.org.

U.S., Iraqi Forces Seize Weapons Caches, Detain Suspects

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2008 – Coalition and Iraqi forces seized weapons caches throughout and captured suspected terrorists in Baghdad during operations over the past several days.

Yesterday, U.S. soldiers of the 25th Infantry Division’s Company C, 1st Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment, joined Iraqi soldiers in seizing a cache north of Baghdad. The cache included 90 mm projectiles, 122 mm projectiles, a 120 mm mortar, powdered aluminum, explosives, sulfur, washing machine timers, batteries, radios, red detonation cord, and an assortment of insulated wires.

Less than an hour later, a tip from a concerned Iraqi citizen led U.S. soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, along with Iraqi Army troops, to a house in Kadhamiyah. In the house’s courtyard the soldiers found an AK-47 rifle with full magazines, loose 7.62 mm rounds, binoculars, an Iraqi Army flak vest, a rocket-propelled grenade booster, grenades with fuses, and radios with chargers.

In other operations in Iraq yesterday:

— A combined patrol Iraqi Army soldiers and members of the Iraqi national police detained three suspected criminals in Baghdad’s Saydiyah community.

— Members of the Iraqi national police discovered a munitions cache in an abandoned house in Baghdad’s Risalah community. They found a 57 mm warhead, mortar fuses, a rocket fuse, blocks of plastic explosives and grenade fuses. An explosive ordnance disposal unit responded to properly dispose of the ammunition.

In operations in Iraq on Oct. 31:

— On the evening of Oct. 31, Iraqi National police found a cache in the Riassa area of eastern Baghdad. The police officers seized one-pound sticks of high explosives, hand grenades with fuses, flares, rounds of small-arms ammunition, an AK-47 drum magazine and a magazine for 5.56 mm ammunition.

— National policemen informed U.S. Army soldiers assigned to the 10th Mountain Division’s 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, that they had seized 60 mm mortars near Forward Operating Base Rustamiyah.

— A tip from a concerned citizen led U.S. soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division’s Company D, 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, to a cache in Baghdad’s New Baghdad district. The cache included 60 mm rounds.

— U.S. Soldiers serving with the 4th Infantry Division’s Company A, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, found 60 mm mortar rounds in the West Rashid district of Baghdad while searching abandoned houses.

— A tip from an Iraqi citizen guided Iraqi Army soldiers to a weapons cache in Baghdad’s Kadhamiyah district. The cache included mortar rounds, rocket-propelled grenade rounds, grenades and RPG propellant rods.

— A tip from an Iraqi citizen led Iraqi Army soldiers to a weapons cache in Kadhamiyah. The munitions, found in a trash pile, included a 30 mm high explosive round, 120 mm mortar round and a 10 array three-quarter-inch explosively formed penetrator.

— Multinational Division Baghdad soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division’s Company A, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, detained a suspect while on patrol in the Aamel community of Baghdad’s Rashid district. They transported the detainee, who is suspected of planting roadside bombs, to a nearby combat outpost for processing.

— Soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division’s Troop C, 7th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment, detained two suspected criminals in Baghdad’s Abu T’shir neighborhood. The suspects are believed to be responsible for homemade bomb attacks against Iraqi security force and local citizens.

Coalition Troops Kill 19 Militants, Detain 3 in Eastern Afghanistan

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2008 – Coalition forces killed 19 armed militants and detained three suspects Oct. 31 during multiple operations to disrupt the Haqqani, Taliban, and al-Qaida homemade-bomb and foreign-fighter networks in eastern Afghanistan.

In Dara Noor District, coalition forces targeted a known al-Qaida leader believed to facilitate the movement of foreign fighters and weapons into Konar province. The leader also is believed to be in contact with other militants in the region, coordinating attacks against coalition forces and civilians.

As the forces began a search of the targeted compound they were immediately engaged by two armed militants inside the first building. Coalition forces responded with small-arms fire, killing both militants.

Following the engagement, the forces moved to a second building in the compound. As they approached the building multiple armed militants exited the building, attempting to maneuver on the forces and engaging them with small-arms fire.

Coalition forces returned fire, killing five armed militants, including one armed female. One suspect was detained during the operation.

A second operation, in Nadar Shahkot District, targeted a militant known to have ties to both the Taliban and Haqqani terrorist networks. The target also is known to coordinate and direct bomb attacks in the region.

As the troops approached the vehicle the target was in, he and another militant inside reached for AK-47s. Faced with the hostile intent, the forces engaged both small-arms fire, killing them.

Upon a search of the vehicle, coalition forces discovered explosives. The vehicle was destroyed because of the threat it presented to both the forces and local civilians.

Also in Nader Shah Kowt, Coalition forces killed 10 armed militants and detained two suspects during an operation directed at a known Haqqani facilitator of homemade bombs and suicide bombers.

As the forces attempted to search the compound they were engaged by several groups of armed militants with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades. Coalition forces responded with small-arms fire, killing six, including the targeted Haqqani militant.

A search of the compound revealed multiple AK-47s, an RPG, RPG rounds, a pistol and other military style equipment.

As the forces attempted to leave the compound they took heavy fire from militants inside a building. Coalition forces engaged the militants with precision, close-air support to neutralize the threat.

“Suicide attack in South Waziristan threatens government’s truce with Taliban”
By BILL ROGGIO
November 2, 2008 8:50 PM

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “A suicide bomber struck at Pakistani paramilitary troops in the Taliban-controlled South Waziristan tribal agency. The attack threats are recent truce signed between a local Taliban commander and the military.

Eight paramilitary soldiers from the Frontier Corps were killed after a suicide bomber rammed a truck packed with explosives into a checkpoint outside the Zalai Kla Fort near Wana. The suicide bomber was attempting to enter the fort, a Pakistani Army spokesman said.

The suicide attack took place just two days after a US Predator strike came close to killing Mullah Nazir, a senior Taliban leader in South Waziristan. Nazir and Tahir Yuldashev, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, were the targets of the strike. Nazir was lightly wounded in the attack. It is not known if Yuldashev was among those killed.

Six “foreigners” — a term used to describe Arabs or other non-Pakistani al Qaeda members — and a Taliban operative are reported to have been killed.

The suicide attack broke the most recent peace agreement between the government and the Taliban in South Waziristan.”

“Britain extradites three Tunisian terror suspects to Italy”

Sun Nov 2, 2:00 am ET

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “ROME (AFP) – Three Tunisian men accused of terrorism links by Italian prosecutors arrived in Milan under heavy security after being extradited from Britain, Italian police said.

Habib Ignaoua, Mohamed Khemiri and Ali Chehidi, who arrived in Milan on Saturday, were arrested in the London and Manchester areas last year as part of coordinated raids across Europe against an alleged Italian-based network recruiting fighters for Iraq and Afghanistan.

European warrants for their arrest had been issued by an investigating magistrate attached to courts in Milan who accused them of plotting to organise the recruitment of volunteers ready to commit acts of terror from Milan.”

Dem. Congressman: “Let [Russia] Invade Georgia. It’s Right Next to Them
The Weekly Standard ^ | 11/03/08 | John McCormack
Posted on November 3, 2008 3:42:04 AM PST by DocT111

At an event at a Boca Raton synagogue, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said that the United States should let Russia invade Georgia. Beginning at the 3:50 mark in the following YouTube video, which was recorded by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, Nadler says:

We have not been willing to put our priorities properly. We have not been willing to say ... “Hey Russia, we won’t expand NATO into the Ukraine and Georgia, right next to your borders, if you cooperate with us on Iran.” ...

I think Iran and Israel are a hell of a lot more important than expanding NATO to Russia’s borders. Why should we? What do we need it for?

Someone in the crowd says: “Because they invaded Georgia.”

Nadler retorts: “So let ‘em invade Georgia. It’s right next to them. Would we tolerate a foreign—a Russian army in Mexico? Which is more important to us Georgia or Israel, frankly?”

Another voice in the crowd asks Nadler: “What is more important to us Czechoslovakia or Austria?”

“That’s a completely separate kind of question,” Nadler replies.

“Terrorists try to infiltrate UK’s top labs”

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “The security services have intercepted up to 100 suspects posing as postgraduate students who aim to acquire weapons material and expertise”

Mark Townsend, defence correspondent
The Observer, Sunday November 2 2008

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Dozens of suspected terrorists have attempted to infiltrate Britain’s top laboratories in order to develop weapons of mass destruction, such as biological and nuclear devices, during the past year.

The security services, MI5 and MI6, have intercepted up to 100 potential terrorists posing as postgraduate students who they believe tried accessing laboratories to gain the materials and expertise needed to create chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons, the government has confirmed.

It follows warnings from MI5 to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that al-Qaeda’s terror network is actively seeking to recruit scientists and university students with access to laboratories containing deadly viruses and weapons technology.”
