On May 16 last year, a 22-year-old Austrian named Maqsood Lodin was being questioned by police in Berlin. He had recently returned from Pakistan via Budapest, Hungary, and then traveled overland to Germany. His interrogators were surprised to find that hidden in his underpants were a digital storage device and memory cards.
Buried inside them was a pornographic video called "Kick Ass" -- and a file marked "Sexy Tanja."
Several weeks later, after laborious efforts to crack a password and software to make the file almost invisible, German investigators discovered encoded inside the actual video a treasure trove of intelligence -- more than 100 al Qaeda documents that included an inside track on some of the terror group's most audacious plots and a road map for future operations.
Future plots include the idea of seizing cruise ships and carrying out attacks in Europe similar to the gun attacks by Pakistani militants that paralyzed the Indian city of Mumbai in November 2008. Ten gunmen killed 164 people in that three-day rampage.
"The document delivers very clearly the notion that al Qaeda knows it is being followed very closely," Musharbash tells CNN. "It specifically says that Western intelligence agencies have become very good at spoiling attacks, that they have to come up with new ways and better plotting."
"I believe that the general idea is still alive and I believe that as soon as al Qaeda has the capacities to go after that scenario, they will immediately do it," he says.
While "Future Works" does not include dates or places, nor specific plans, it appears to be a brainstorming exercise to seize the initiative -- and reinstate al Qaeda on front pages around the world.

So that's how they justify all the porn - necessary to do the will of allah.
I thought the admin said the war on terror was over?
The terrorists didn’t get the memo? I’m shocked!
They can make that claim if they choose to no longer fight it.
Seize cruise ships? They better bring a lot of camel-humpers, because most of those ships carry thousands of passengers and crew. And you can be sure that, as long as at least 30-50% of those passengers are Americans, the camel-humpers are going to find themselves stuck full of knives, forks, and whatever else the passengers can get their hands on...
Steganography. Difficult to find unless you know where to look for it.
Yeah right! I'm sure those documents were stamped "al Qaeda" all over them.
Amazing isn't it, though Foggy Bottom lists some 40+ Islamic Terrorists Organizations Worldwide, this Jihadist appeasing/supporting/defending administration has made a concentrated effort to advance the narrative that we are at war against ONLY al Qaeda, that way they can ignore the Elephant in the jello, most specifically, the Mooselimb Bruderhood which has many operatives/supporter/facilitators within the highest levels of every major Gov't Agency to include the White Hut.
"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.--Sun Tzu
