Al-Qaeda has trained female suicide bombers to attack West, US officials warn

Al-Qaeda terror cells have trained a group of female suicide bombers to attack Western targets, US officials have warned.

/snip

Published: 8:30PM GMT 23 Jan 2010

The women, who may have a "non Arab" appearance and be travelling on Western passports, have been prepared for their missions by the Yemeni group responsible for the operation to blow up an airliner over the United States on Christmas Day.

Details of the bombers emerged just hours after British spy chiefs raised the UK threat state to "severe" amid fears that al-Qaeda was planning a wave of attacks against western targets.

Terror experts within the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, a unit of MI5, now believe that an attack against the UK is "highly likely".

US law enforcement agents have been told to be on the lookout for female suicide bombers who may attempt to enter the country.

At least two are believed to be connected to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula which dispatched underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who tried unsuccessfully to bring down a transatlantic airliner over Detroit.

Richard Clarke, a former chief White House counter terrorism adviser, said: "They have trained women.

"There are others who are still out there who have been trained and who are clean skins – that means people who we do not have a record of, people who may not look like al-Qaeda terrorists, who may not be Arabs, and may not be men."

Security sources said that it was "inevitable" that al-Qaeda would eventually turn to using women with a western appearance to carry out suicide attacks.

Officials said that airliners and all forms of transport could be targeted as well as sports stadiums, ports and power stations.

Women. Can’t live with ‘em; can’t trust ‘em not to try to blow you up.

One has to wonder what additional information the Christmas bomber could have told us about this plot under enhanced interrogation by the CIA.

Any woman married to an Arab Muslim is vulnerable, particularly if he dies or divorces her. If she is a European or American it is awful, as she will have no family there.

She has to leave her children behind with her husband if he divorces her. It is even worse if he dies; as a widow she is vulnerable to threats with no one to protect her or the children. If his family take the children, then they can threaten her.

This lastly may the cases we’re about to see played out. Do this for Al Qaeda, lady. Martyr yourself, and your children will be safe forever.

We’re talkin’ real sickos here, if this is the scenario.

Ever since 9/11 I have suggested to my family members and friends to keep a distance from Muslim women dressed in abbayah, in crowded places such as shopping malls, department and grocery stores.

It is only a matter of time before one will explode.

Hamas ran some OP’s like this. Had some Pali Don Juan’s seduce married women and then out them to their husbands/ families. In some cases the husbands would drive their wives to the drop off point for the suicide bombing operations. (Hamas would tell them that blowing themselves and Jews up was the only was they could redeem themselves and family honorblahblahblah)

Of course the global msm tried to make it out like these were women who were driven to do these things by “the occupation”.

My wife and I have had that conversation too. How do you know it’s even a woman under the garb? You don’t. They’re the original stealth fighter/bombers.

I’m suspicious of this claim.

First, the release of this info strikes me as the Obama administration’s attempt to make it look like they DID squeeze useful intelligence out of the Crotch Bomber - before they let him lawyer up.

Second, this alleged intelligence, allegedly squeezed out of the Crotch Bomber (I know, ewww), could well be Al Qaeda disinformation.

I.e., what a great diversion: Get our TSA agents busily scrutinizing pregnant white women, while the real perps breeze through.

Does this mean these “non Arab” in appearance women, are Arabs/Muslims that look like Anglosajon, Teutonic, or Nordic Women? Or are these women which have just shaken hands with a hair dryer and women’s beauty products (like a razor).

Yemen, huh?

So what would it take to obliterate the whole stinking country - one nuclear bomb? Two?

Probably one. But if we send in a second one, just to make sure, who knows - maybe it will malfunction and detonate somewhere to the northwest - say, at Mecca.

Muslims will have to remove that garb as soon as the first of them blows up. Only after innocent bystanders are blown up will our government take action.

By the way, Brits in the Middle East call these black clad women “Guinness bottles”.

Been ‘known’ for a couple years now....dozens of academic papers written on it or about it, especially as it relates to the increased use of female suicide bombers.

Didn’t Female Bombers knock out two Russian airlines by secreting bombs in there private parts and setting them off in the planes bathroom? I recall something like that. Widows are said to use this tactic to get revenge in the killers of their sons and husbands.

I don’t recall if they were successful, but suicide bombers (male and female) are nothing new.

OPINION:

The main-stream media and the general public is not used to the fact that there are white and “western-looking” muslims who are wannabe homicide bombers.

Bottom line, the global jihad is 24/7.
The general public must understand this.

Notation: Most muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are muslims.

"The women, who may have a "non Arab" appearance and be travelling on Western passports, have been prepared for their missions by the Yemeni group responsible for the operation to blow up an airliner over the United States on Christmas Day.

Whose side is Obama on? He gave 3 lawyers to the terrorist to "protect his rights", instead of interrogating him and squeezing every bit of info out of him, to find out about the others who were being trained at the same time in the same camp in Yemen, who plan to come and blow us up.
