He is a shadowy figure, lurking on the edges of the Sept. 11 attack. Federal investigators know that Omar al-Bayoumi helped pay the rent for two of the American Airlines Flight 77 hijackers, Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar, on their apartment in San Diego. The Feds also know that al-Bayoumi is well educated and ambitious.

One FBI official noted, a little ruefully, that the bureau’s Phoenix, Ariz., field office cabled headquarters last summer about an unusual number of Arabs who seemed to be taking flight lessons. "But that was all they could tell us—Jeez, there are a lot of Arabs taking flying lessons!" said the official.

What has the FBI done about the 14 Syrian 'student pilots?' Do they ever learn?

To a greater degree than they will ever want to admit, the intelligence and law-enforcement authorities of several Western countries have tolerated terrorists in their midst. The rationalization has always been that it’s better to keep an eye on terror cells than drive them underground. Radical imams sometimes act as informants for law enforcement. In the murky world of terror cells, however, it is sometimes hard to tell who is an informant—and who is a double (or triple) agent. When Al Qaeda networks moved into the Bosnian civil war, the CIA argued against expelling the extremists, insisting that it was more important to watch them and monitor their communications.

Or maybe they were partners? BIN LADEN GATE

Is this not nice? FreeRepublic readers were reading about the use of Muslim extremists by the Clintonistas to further "globalist" agendas (mostly for control of energy routes) in the Balkans and points east for about 2 years now.

For this reason Clintonistas backed the Bosnian Muslims and the Muslims Albanians against Serbia and gave comfort the the Chechen cause, forced the Phillipines to negotiate with Islamic sepratists, and a host of other movements that sprang around the world in the 8 years of the Clinton horror.

The problem is as In the murky world of terror cells, however, it is sometimes hard to tell who is an informant—and who is a double (or triple) agent. The Americans thought they were using the Muslim extremists but they got used instead. When Al Qaeda networks moved into the Bosnian civil war, the CIA argued against expelling the extremists, insisting that it was more important to watch them and monitor their communications. Not only that but Clinton's administartion made sure that they were supplied by arms and fresh recruits as well. When your arrogant like that you never expect the wogs to get the better of you.

Anyone still believe that posts about muslim fifth columnists in the US were the work of "Serb propagandists based in Belgrade"? Or that they were written to "spread hate", or out of "paranoia" (whether "Serbian paranoia" or good old American "paranoia")?

I personally wish that the VERY REAL muslim fifth columnists--and their dirty work--WERE some sort of paranoid fantasy!!! But it's time to realize that we have been sold a bill of goods with wide-open islamic immigration, and "multiculturalist" lies about "islam the religion of peace". Today's muslim fifth columnists need to be ROOTED OUT the way that earlier generations of Americans rooted out Nazi and communist fifth-columnist traitors and spies!!!!

Then I am also your "enemy" Srpska Vatra, and I am not Muslim. I had the impression that you could do better then the usual "Islam is our enemy", "Christianity vs Islam", "Western civilisation vs. barbarism" and similiar nonsense. Is this really the way you imagine this world to be in peace? Come on, mozemo bit clovecniji! :)

Say it again, in unison, and try VERY hard to believe it: "Our enemy is NOT Islam."

I am trying very hard, but it ain't workin.

I believe Islam is the enemy, at least Islam of the Arabian countries. I know there is one Islam but it seems that Persians and Turks and Jordanians aren't involved. There might be a minority of Muslims who are peace-loving.

Thanks for the bump. Interesting article.

How are the shakes? ;-) By the way, I tease you but I know about these things from my own failed attempts. So I'm also poling fun of my own inability to go quit.

Unfortunately, the radicals get all the press. I wonder if the minority of them are simply afraid to speak up?
