Al Qaeda Eyes Bio Attack Via Mexico Border

Al Qaeda eyes bio attack via Mexico border

Seeks white militias as allies

By Sara A. Carter Wednesday, June 3, 2009

U.S. counterterrorism officials have authenticated a video by an al Qaeda recruiter threatening to smuggle a biological weapon into the United States via tunnels under the Mexico border, the latest sign of the terrorist group's determination to stage another mass-casualty attack on the U.S. homeland.

The video aired earlier this year as a recruitment tool makes clear that al Qaeda is looking to exploit weaknesses in U.S. border security and also is willing to ally itself with white militia groups or other anti-government entities interested in carrying out an attack inside the United States, according to counterterrorism officials interviewed by The Washington Times.

That’s the plan —to say militias are the muzzie-loving threat, then tar ALL THEIR ENEMIES as militia members.

Remember Bubba’s “black churches are burning across the south”-thing?

“In the video, obtained and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, al-Nafisi also suggests that al Qaeda might want to collaborate with members of native U.S. white supremacist militias who hate the federal government.”

“Sean Smith, a spokesman for Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, said the U.S. takes such threats seriously.”

Right. We should believe that “white supremist groups” are lining up to enable mooselimb terror groups kill innocent Americans because they hate the Federal Government. Of course there are no mooselimb terrorists because they all love us now. Are we sure this Napolitano person is taking her meds? Sure sounds like she's one of Bill Clintons justice department holdovers.

...al Qaeda is....willing to ally itself with white militia groups...

Huh? They're obviously barking up the wrong tree, there. Methinks that AQ hasn't a clue what said "white militia groups" are about.

They must be using Odumbo's office of Human Resources to hire their recruiters.

As to the gist of the thread, we've known for years now that AQ wants to do this. Nothing new there.

The exact MEMRI video they’re citing in this article was posted MONTHS ago at FR, and everybody here attacked the sheik as an utter kook.

But because this middle eastern guy confabulated it, this has the effect of making common-sense Americans into suspects.

So first it was VFW outposts, and now it’s us, apparently...

Somehow, even if these so called white supremacist groups exists on any large scale, which I doubt, I seriously question whether they would work with muslims.

“The branch of government that brought us ATF, FBI snipers, ruby ridge and Waco!”
Not to mention airport security screeners.
I disparage not the many fine, upstanding, hard working patriots that probably account for 90% of DHS personnel. I was aiming my IRE at the Obama Morons that have infiltrated and control the DHS. It is my belief that the Obamites are working very hard and not quite so serupticiously to demonize the conservatives and anyone that speaks out against the B.S.
Much in the same way that Clintons implants ran roughshod over the “vast right wing conspirators”. Funny how there were no major FBI or ATF abuses during the Bush years though, in spite of all the talk of warrant-less wire taps and such. I never have had anyone come forward and actually offer evidence of specific abuse. Could it be it never happened? Where is the outrage from the left now that Obama has announced he is continuing the same policies?

I think it shows that the guy means business — The story is depicting what Al Qaeda’s intentions are, which other stories just dismissed. I think the story actually states that the video was posted on web sites months ago. But people were to quick to blow this guy off. Just like they were too quick to believe al qaida couldn’t pre-empt an attack on U.S. soil prior to 911....

That was my point. Of course there are such groups. Some of them are pretty scary and pretty radical in their beliefs. Google “Keyhoe Brothers” for example. On the other hand, the painting of “ white right wingers” as domestic terrorists is nothing but a left wing political ploy. Why ignore all the threats from non white hate groups, illegal aliens, gangs, drug dealers and cartels, and focus on “white Christians” unless you have an agenda?

Jihadist Website Promotes ‘Abdallah Al-Nafisi’s Anthrax Attack Concept

‘Abdallah Al-Nafisi

On April 10, 2009, a member of a jihadist forum, who called himself “Abu Mus’ab Al-Zarqawi” posted a link to a lecture by Kuwaiti Islamist ‘Abdallah Al-Nafisi on YouTube in which the latter describes how it would be possible to carry out an anthrax attack in the U.S.....

ARTICLE SNIPPET from the link in post no.1:

"The video first aired by the Arabic news network Al Jazeera in February and later posted to several Web sites shows Kuwaiti dissident Abdullah al-Nafisi telling a room full of supporters in Bahrain that al Qaeda is casing the U.S. border with Mexico to assess how to send terrorists and weapons into the U.S."

It's probably safe to say this activity has been going on for some years now. After killing a whole lot of these fanatic religious freaks, ya know we've got some real enemies out there.

One day, the tractor trailer sitting at the Dallas truck stop, won't be filled with your typical cargo of 95 drug smuggling Mexicans, but filled with something a bit more dangerous.

Surprised it hasn't happened yet.

What’s DHS going to do when they learn the one trait American militia members share is xenophobia?

Wait. Is xenophobia a hate crime?

DHS signal callers. Proof enough that reptilean brains are extremely dangerous to our Nations well-being.

Did Bush say they can tell the difference between trailers full of weapons, bad people, bio weapons, etc., and trailers full of dope, fireworks, illegal aliens and other contraband?

And if so, why does all this stuff get through by the ton, on a daily basis?

Right wing groups are highly nationalist and Christian, I don't see even the most extreme of them paling around with al-Queada. They'd be willing to go after politicians, but not a masscal attack. Maybe white nationalist/neo-nazi types would ally with AQ, shades of Hitler and the Grand Mufti or the Muslim SS Corp in the Balkans.
The politically incorrect fact is that the most likely allies of AQ in the US are Muslim immigrants and Muslim converts: we just had one of our homegrown muslim scum murder one of our soldiers in our own streets.

David Duke: Lies, lies and more lies about President Ahmadinejad

David Duke’s opinion about Jewish extremism should not be interpreted as a willingness to aid any muslim terrorist attack on US. That article was a flimsily constructed and lame attempt to broach the Jewish Holocaust again and who in the western world did not recognize that?

It’s not like he was making an issue of the USS Pueblo or the 9/11 dancing Isreali’s captured on film.

What news accounts I’ve read about him during the time he was news provided little reason for me to think he was anything more than a lightening rod with a twist. He had his message and the balls to proclaim it and it gained a following for him.

But implying that any of what’s left of his supporters would consider helping muslim terrorists carry out such an act after years of political ineffectiveness not only abuses the right of Americans to believe in what was once American individualism it also serves to help further diminish what should be considered by all Americans, one of our Nation’s most cherished traditions, the Militia.

Please read what I surmise is a leftist’s view of the American Militia movement during the clinton years http://www.publiceye.org/rightist/dj_mili.html and then visit http://www.committeesofsafety.org to get an idea of the broad path of American Militia activity today.

It’s about restoring the Republic not contributing to its demise.

So... the USS Liberty story should just go away?

It’s been a couple of days and no one has questioned the incorrect USS Pueblo reference.

And while it just aggravates me no end that in this post-Bill of Rights USA I have to include a non-racist, non-anti Semite disclaimer, here it is. I’m not a racist nor an anti-Semite.

I thought I’d include the USS Liberty Memorial’s website disclaimer, too. Don’t want anyone out there to think the surviving crew members are using their non-event tragedy as an opportunity to spread hate.

From http://www.gtr5.com/

The USS Liberty Memorial web site abhors the racist and extreme positions taken by antiSemitic, Holocaust denial, conspiracy theorist and other such groups which often seek to identify with us and to usurp our story as their own. We have no connection with and do not support or encourage support from any of these groups including National Alliance, National Vanguard, The New Order, National Socialists, The French Connection, Liberty Lobby, American Free Press, Republic Broadcasting, AFP’s Liberty Radio Hour, or other such groups. We wish harm to no one and encourage social justice and equality for everyone; we seek only accountability for the criminal acts perpetrated against us and can do that without help from hate-mongers.

On the Israeli side, the group of pro-Israel, anti-American critics of our story, while small, persists in launching loud, vicious ad hominem attacks on anyone who attempts to discuss the deliberateness of the attack. These anti-American apologists refuse to discuss the facts of the case. Instead, they rely on propaganda and charge anyone who questions the Israeli position with being antiSemitic.

For detailed and authoritative accounts of the power and influence of the pro-Israel lobby, please see The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy by Mearsheimer and Walt and The Pro-Israel Lobby by Edward Herman.
