Al-Qaida's online forums go dark  
UPI ^ | Published: April 2, 2012 at 2:37 PM | n/a

Posted on 04/02/2012 4:31:33 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: "WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) -- A blackout of al-Qaida's main Web sites is in its 11th day, and officials think the forums may have been brought down in a cyberattack.

While no one has claimed credit for disabling the sites..."

SNIPPET: "The loss of information typically confuses and frustrates the readers of the Web sites.

"It leaves the rank-and-file to guess which messages and which messengers are genuine al-Qaida, and provides undercover operators with new opportunities to disrupt the movement," said A. Aaron Weisburd, senior fellow at the Homeland Security Policy Institute."

They're just consolidating their operations and removing online presence redundancy by moving everything over to the white house servers.

SNIPPET: “While these various elements of the jihadist network are distinct, the Internet brings them together, especially at the grassroots level. Videos, websites and online magazines indoctrinate aspiring militants in the jihadist ideology and provide a forum for like-minded individuals and groups.”

“Social Networks & The Online Jihad”
World Threats.com ^ | October 26, 2011 | Posted by Candice Lanier
Posted on October 31, 2011 1:38:14 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “In July, the British government warned that Al Qaeda’s exploitation of social networking websites is on the rise.”

SNIPPET: “The massive and multifarious network of websites and social media has presented a challenge to authorities in trying to combat it. Additionally, civil liberty concerns have conflicted with government efforts to spy on communications.

Reducing terrorist activity on social media sites has been particularly difficult because users have adopted new forms of communication to conform with the new formats. Many Arabic speakers on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other sites use Arabizi, a form of colloquial Arabic written in the Latin alphabet and numbers. This allows the use of a standard English-language keyboard for typing messages. There exists, however, no standard version of Arabizi. It varies from country to country, even among groups within countries and is affected by differences in dialect.”

SNIPPET: “Note: PWP stands for PassWord-Protected, meaning that a login is required to view - let alone participate in - discussions. Since some in the audience don’t understand the significance of this, allow me to spell it out: if only members can read the forum, then anyone observed reading the forum is a member. They have zero deniability (they couldn’t have accidentally “wandered into” the site), and they had to make the effort to join (an expression of intent).

While the goal here is to present a range of sites, the fact is that the jihadis themselves have largely coalesced at Shmukh and Ansar Arabic.”

“TOP TEN JIHADI FORUMS, AS OF 14 FEBRUARY, 2011”

SNIPPET: “Assembled with the help of my dear brothers in Fateh al-Islam (and their minders in the Syrian intelligence service). The [PWP] notation indicates the site is password protected. There’s nothing worse than the mournful wailing of analysts, graduate students, and reporters who find themselves locked out of their favorite forum. Join early, join often, save important discussions as you find them, try not to say anything too embarrassing, and if you’re a civilian, make some effort to let your friendly neighborhood secret police know that you’re a good guy, not a bad guy, so they don’t have to waste time and money investigating you. Forums are not just websites, they are battlefields, and spectators are not particularly welcome by any of the combatants.”

“U.S. military goes on cyber offensive”
By ZACHARY FRYER-BIGGS | Last Updated:March 26, 2012

SNIPPET: “Confronted with 10 million cyber attacks per day, the Defense Department is changing its tack.”

SNIPPET: “Part of that aggressive posture comes in the form of arming combatant commanders — allowing for broader access to capabilities, more rapid action and the pairing of traditional kinetic attacks with newly developed cyber capabilities.

Although Alexander only alluded to the effort in his prepared remarks, it was confirmed by sources.

CYBERCOM will establish Cyber Support Elements (CSEs) at all six combatant commands.

Thus far, U.S. Central Command in the Middle East is the only command with a fully operational element, while U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) has a partial element, a CYBERCOM spokesman confirmed.

These support elements will provide technical capability and expertise, part of an effort to improve the integration of cyber attack capabilities, a source with knowledge of the efforts said.”

Spanish Police Arrests an Al Qaeda Suspect
(AP) via FOX NEWS.com ^ | March 27, 2012 | n/a
Posted on March 31, 2012 4:44:57 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “MADRID – Spanish police on Tuesday arrested a suspected member of Al Qaeda who was key to the terror group’s Internet propaganda and recruiting operations, officials said.

The suspect arrested in the eastern city of Valencia “administered one of the world’s most important jihadist forums”, dedicated to recruiting and indoctrinating Islamic terrorists, Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said.

The name of that forum and the suspect’s name were not given, only his initials, M.H.A. He is Jordanian-born with Saudi citizenship.”

SNIPPET: “The suspect worked at home “8 to 15 hours a day” for al-Qaida and for two offshoots, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the minister said.”

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves..

Pause a moment, reflect back.

These events are actual events from history.. They really happened!!! Do you remember?

1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.

3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach and it was blown up shortly after landing by Muslim males.

4. In 1973 a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome , with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.

5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.

6. During the 1980’s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.

7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.

8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.

9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.

10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.

11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.

12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.

13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.

14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.

15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by-— you guessed it-—Muslim males.

No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people...

Absolutely No Profiling!

They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason???

Yes, Stupid Is As Stupid Does. Are we ever going to Smarten up?

SNIPPET: “Some comments

• I have to assume that al-Balawi was thoroughly debriefed by al-Qaida before being sent on this mission, and I’m surprised no one has sought to correlate his “infiltration” of al-Qaida with Abu Yahya al-Libi’s book released over the summer: “Guidance on the Ruling of the Muslim Spy”

“Al-Qaeda cyber sites go silent”
Published: 4/04/2012 at 01:55 AM
Online news:

SNIPPET: “”All of them essentially went down” as of March 23, said Aaron Zelin, a researcher at the politics department at Brandeis University.

The outage hit a number of online forums including two “flagship” sites, al-Fida and Shamukh al-Islam, which serve as a channel for Al-Qaeda forums, providing a stamp of approval for any associated sites, Zelin said.”

SNIPPET: “The digital sabotage could have been carried out by any number of governments or private hackers, said James Lewis, director of the technology and public policy program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

“There are some many potential suspects,” Lewis told AFP.”

“Al Qaeda Coming Again in New York”
(April 3, 2012)

SNIPPET: “In other words, this was a lesson to the aspiring media wing members on how to integrate two images into one on Photoshop! The replies from the others on the thread are not, “Allahu Akbar! Let’s bomb New York”. The replies are stuff like, “Well done, great integration!” and “Cool design!”.”

“Al Qaeda site says ‘enemies of Allah’ took it down”
AFP | 2 days ago

SNIPPET: “HONG KONG: One of al Qaeda’s main Internet sites has accused “enemies of Allah” of taking it down for several days, but said it was now back up stronger than ever, according to a US monitoring service on Thursday.

Researchers who track jihadist movements said this week that Shamukh al-Islam, one of al Qaeda’s two main websites, went dark on March 23 and reappeared online on Monday April 2.

The unprecedented blackout was most likely the result of a cyber attack, either by a government or by private hackers, the experts in the United States said.”

“Al Qaeda bomb-making expert publishes magazine detailing how to make explosives

Text penned by longtime jihadist and explosives guru Abdullah Dhu al-Bajadin”

BY JOSEPH STRAW AND ROCCO PARASCANDOLA / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Monday, April 9, 2012, 11:55 PM

SNIPPET: “The first installment to circulate through jihadist online circles is ominously titled Al Qaeda Airlines and features an image of a silhouetted twin-engine airliner climbing into the sunset. The 73-page text was penned by longtime jihadist and explosives guru Abdullah Dhu al-Bajadin, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist Web traffic. The mysterious figure is credited with writing an Internet encyclopedia of terror tradecraft, and once fielded online questions about bomb-making from wanna-be evildoers.

The first installment outlines chemistry fundamentals and a recipe for the poisonous anesthetic chloroform.

“We chose that because the beginner mujahid can prepare it at home using materials that are available in grocery stores and supermarkets,” the author wrote, according to a SITE translation.”

Homeland Security Joint Subcommittee Hearing on Cyber Threat from Iran — TOMORROW

APR 25, 2012 Issues: Counterterrorism, Cybersecurity

Washington, D.C. – The Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, chaired by Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA), and the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies, chaired by Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA), will hold a joint hearing entitled “Iranian Cyber Threat to the U.S. Homeland” tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Room 311 Cannon House Office Building.

In January, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that “Iran’s intelligence operations against the United States, including cyber capabilities, have dramatically increased in recent years in depth and complexity.”

Tomorrow’s hearing will give Members the opportunity to examine Iran’s capability to carry out cyber attacks and the potential threat this poses to the homeland, including the threat to critical infrastructure such as nuclear power plants and the electric grid.
