AP Exclusive: New al-Qaida leader knows US well
Yahoo News ^ | August 6, 2010 | Curt Anderson

Posted on 08/06/2010 8:16:09 AM PDT by La Lydia

MIAMI – A suspected al-Qaida operative who lived for more than 15 years in the U.S. has become chief of the terror network's global operations, the FBI says, marking the first time a leader so intimately familiar with American society has been placed in charge of planning attacks. Adnan Shukrijumah, 35, has taken over a position once held by 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Miami-based FBI counterterrorism agent Brian LeBlanc (said). That puts him in regular contact with al-Qaida's senior leadership, including Osama bin Laden...

Shukrijumah and two others were part of an "external operations council" that designed and approved terrorism plots and recruits, but his two counterparts were killed in U.S. drone attacks, leaving Shukrijumah as the de facto chief and successor to Mohamme...

The FBI has been searching for Shukrijumah since 2003. He is thought to be the only al-Qaida leader to have once held permanent U.S. resident status, or a green card.

Shukrijumah was named earlier this year in a federal indictment as a conspirator in the case against three men accused of plotting suicide bomb attacks on New York's subway system in 2009...he is also suspected of...plotting potential al-Qaida bomb attacks in Norway and a never-executed attack on subways in the UK...other evidence also indicate Shukrijumah did research and surveillance in spring 2001 for a never-attempted plot to disrupt commerce in the Panama Canal...

Shukrijumah, who trained at al-Qaida's Afghanistan camps in the late 1990s, was labeled a "clear and present danger" to the U.S...

Shukrijumah's mother, Zurah Adbu Ahmed, said...that her son frequently talked about what he considered the excesses of American society...but that he did not condone violence...."This boy would never do evil stuff. He is not an evil person," she said. "He loved this country. He never had a problem with the United States."...

This is the thanks we get for taking in this human trash in the first place. (Born in Saudia Arabia and a citizen of Guyana. Thanks Saudis) Green card indeed. Interesting how he couldn't get alone well enough with Jose Padilla to carry out their plot to blow up a bunch of buildings.

All immigration by Muslims should be halted until further notice. The ones who are here on visas should have those visas revoked, and they should go home. And his mother, who is in typical dishonest Muslim-mommy denial, needs to be deported back to her native hell hole, too.

This guy is no joke. I recall FBI Director Mueller giving testimony that he loses sleep over this bastard and his whereabouts.

He is considered the AQ dirty bomb guy. He’s been rumored to be in Central America, South America, Mexico, and who knows where else.

A more effective policy would be to deport or imprison the entire extended family. The families would rein in their children if they knew they would suffer consequences.

Why are we over-run by scads of drones who are American STRICTLY as a matter of paperwork...?

You cannot credibly run a, “War on Terror” while permitting for the nightly invasion of 7,500 people.

EVERY NIGHT 7,500 more.

"Mr Adnan Shukrijumah?"

Shukrijumah: "Yes?"

"This is Barack Obama, congratulations on your promotion."

Shukrijumah: "What?"

"That's right, congratulations my brother. I'm working on destroying America from the inside, you work on destroying it from the outside, fair enough?"

Shukrijumah: "Allah AKBAR!"

"Same to you Adnan, same to you."

This POS probably walked over the Arizona border or is in Hussein’s Regime as an adviser.

We are being destroyed from within. We The People better wake up.

Thank goodness he can't get any further north because our borders are just as secure as they've ever been.

Thanks, indeed. Is he the first of others to follow? Not likely it's a one in a million thing.

Help Texas watch her borders.
Watch live on 14 cameras and report illegal alien invaders.
Night cams in operation

http://www.blueservo.net/index.php?error=nlg

Does it work? Yes.
Recently caught on cam and reported:
String of illegals running through brush with backpacks
Numerous sightings of boats crossing the river
Numerous vehicles late at night in isolated areas
IMMENSELY satisfying.

So did Admiral Yamamoto, and hopefully this guy will meet the same fate.

Let’s see:

An Islamic terror chief who knows America and is dedicated to harming her.

An alleged Commander-in-Chief who pretends that there is no such war intended by our terrorist enemies, and who has dedicated his life to dismantling and destroying America’s moral, monetary and physical strength.

It doesn’t take a prophet to realize where this is headed: towards a day when we will see lots more dead Americans.

The barbarous and brutal minions of Allah are looking for something even more spectacular than 9-11. That’s just the way they are.

May the Living and True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have mercy on us.

I thought Osama bin Laden was the leader of al-Qaida, no?
