“Bin Laden Notebook Reveals Plot for 10th Anniversary of 9/11”
Posted May 6th, 2011 by USNavySeals
SNIPPET: “A notebook found in the hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was found and killed, revealed plans to stage another terrorist attack in the United States to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The New York Times reported that the handwritten notebook was among the first documents retrieved from the Al Qaeda hideout that were translated from Arabic and analyzed. The notebook was from February 2010, and talked of tampering with the U.S. railroad system. The plans involved derailing a train on a bridge...”
Public transportation and public places and large events — jihadis find those appetizing targets.
That said, this is somewhat breaking news and at this time, with the little info available...suspect(s) seem to be unknown.
Thank you for the bump Diogenesis.
Don’t worry, folks, we’re on it. Force was apparent everywhere Thursday. Even saw a crew walking station platforms with backpack (geiger-counter ?)
“two bottles with a yellow liquid inside”
Those sound more like “trucker bombs” to me!
Snowplow drivers throw them out the window all night long.
SEPTA Terror Response Equipment Stolen
Items Taken From SUV While At Garage For Service
PHILADELPHIA - The entire country is on alert ever since a Navy SEALs team raiding Osama bin Laden’s compound found evidence that al-Qaeda wants to attack trains.
Thank YOU, Cindy, for being there for America
year after year. God bless you.
“two bottles with a yellow liquid inside
Those sound more like trucker bombs to me!”
My first thought, too, until I read about the duct tape and wires... don’t think you need that to go to the bathroom! :/
It starts... binny had this plan in his paperwork, according to reports. Get ready... we going to be playing Cowboys and Muslims soon!
Sounds like a local Muzz inspired by Muzzie protests against the offing of Obama, er, I mean Osama.
I do not think that is cruel in any way. We are the 'Great Satan' to them and they want us to submit. Their own words are enough for me. Toss them out before it is too late.
With the information (hard drives and paperwork) having been captured by the SEALs, it gives cause for the cockroaches to be scattering.
I hope the FBI and other agencies are watching various ‘locations’ outside the Middle East to see who is scurrying and what is being scoured.
I have a feeling that many Imams, even within the USA, are sweating.
That info probably contains plans, organizational structure, names, phone numbers, addresses, etc. It is probably ‘hotter’ than Hillary’s 900 FBI files.
Cowboys and muslims... love it..... :) I am stealing that.....
The person behind it is a “whiz” at bomb making.
Pardon the expression, but Philly is a real pool of crap, a political machine run by corrupt Democrats. I refuse to go there.
I remember visiting the building housing the Liberty Bell. There was a picture of Nelson Mandela there. That was enough for me.
Do a search of “cowboys and muslims” and you’ll find a popular humorous tale all over the internet. Seen it on FR several times, posted it myself once.
Well, that was quick.
Surely you’re being sarcastic?
So, the question that will never be asked is this:
Are these “bombs” the fruits of Bin Laden’s plans or........
Are these “bombs” the result of our telling the world about Bin Laden’s plans?
That isn't the half of it. The whole exhibit is a disgusting shrine to PC
I was there a few years ago and left physically ill
It’s time for “peaceful Muslims” to rat out their terrorist brothers.
I think about this often. When are we acting as al Qaeda’s free publicity service?
LOL...can’t believe this took place in PA, and we haven’t had a single Amish reference yet!
Remember the fear that everytime Bin Laden would release a video or audio that he would have coded orders in them?
The Obama Administration is so incompetent that it could accidentally trigger an attack.
It is really bad. I would like to visit some of the museums. The cost of parking is ridiculous among other things.
I remember being a child and the plan for today is field trip. Hooray!!
It is a shame.
Perhaps someone had a problem. LOL!
“Are these bombs the result of our telling the world about Bin Ladens plans?”
The Obama administration’s loos lips has also sent a message to these “safe houses”, and you can bet if the F.B.I. kicks down doors, any one or thing of value would have moved on.
And thank goodness there hasn't been one. The Amish thing was funny the first year or two, but something about seeing the same joke ten thousand times....well...
I guess it was only a matter of time. I fervently hope this does not become a trend.
A friend and I were just discussing my upcoming trip home this morning. We laughed about how we swerve on the freeways back home to avoid any trash or anything at all because we are now wired to suspect anything like that as an IED.
I guess I’d better not try so hard to drop that habit as I have on past trips home.
Thanks for the ping.
You can’t protect rail that easy.
Perhaps it's time to start blaming the Jains.
It really is sickening. I have not been there since my visit. I do not see myself returning any time soon, if ever.
Somebody found a discarded contraceptive, gross....
Police in Chester said an explosive device was found in an alley between residential homes and a set of train tracks yesterday.Sounds more like something for an arsonist than anything that could cause a derailment.
Chester Police Chief Darren Alston described it as a gallon-size sports-drink container filled with gasoline. A timer was taped to the device, but it was not set.
Alston said city firefighters and the Delaware County bomb squad disabled the device and that authorities are investigating all scenarios, from juvenile prank to terrorism.
Round up the Amish.
Okay, who misses Frank Rizzo, now?
I’m also be wary of a Beslan style raid, but probably not ‘til this fall after the start of the new school year and the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The muzz will have all summer to plan for it while Napolitano falls back asleep and Holder returns to selling guns to drug cartels.
The usual find is a body. This community is ravaged by crime , drugs and murder. Could a Muslim group slide into Chester and make use of the youth? Indeed they could. Once the home of Ford Motors, Scott Paper, Baldt Anchor, Congoleum, and a rail car company. A place where Lee Iacocca got his start . The slogan used to be “What Chester makes, makes Chester great”
The city is now home to a huge Harrah’s Casino on the Delaware waterfront and a professional soccer team. The new stadium built on the waterfront is beautiful. Chester still
is a bad place these days.
This is probably just some local nutcase inspired by the news. Something tells me Al Qaeda would not be so obvious.
Fact that timer wasn’t set makes this look like a “warning”, but, again, there are plenty of unhinged people looking for their 15 minutes of fame in exchange for a lifetime in prison.
