Adam Gadahn, seen in these undated photos released by the FBI, is suspected of attending an al-Qaida training camp and working as a translator for the terror group. His father, a Hemet resident, is baffled by the allegations. Adam Gadahn didn't attend college, choosing instead to move to the suburbs of Los Angeles where he became a Muslim and worshipped at the Islamic Society of Orange County. The mosque later expelled him for attacking one of its leaders.

He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of assault and battery in connection with the May 1997 fight. He was sentenced to two days in jail and five days of community service, but he never showed up for the community service. There is an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

Adam Gadahn worked in 1997 at Charity Without Borders in Garden Grove, where Khalil al-Deek, a terrorist suspect with alleged ties to Osama bin Laden, also was employed. It is not clear if the two were friends.

Rita Katz, executive director of terrorism research group Site Institute, said al-Deek was a suspected mastermind of the millennium plot to bomb Los Angeles International Airport on New Year's Day 2000.

Al-Deek was jailed in Jordan for 17 months on suspicion of being involved in a bombing plot, but he was never charged with a crime. He was released in May 2001 and deported to the United Arab Emirates.

FBI officials in Los Angeles said Adam Gadahn was last known to be in Southern California in 1997 or 1998. His father said he traveled to Pakistan with friends and, at first, would write two or three times a year but that became less frequent. "He just faded," Philip Gadahn said.

You are welcome to break me or attempt to break me of whatever bad habits may remain.

In today's case, I didn't think there was anything particularly negative at all involved. Just a newbie learning some customs and sensibilities about FR vis a vis DU. Simple education effort about rather tame and neutral stuff at that point. I didn't construe or feel that anyone had any significant face to lose.

And, I didn't feel any great censure by your public post rebuking me. I mostly felt sadness that you were somehow offended yet again.

So, if my memory is right, we have major Russian 'games' at the same time roughly that we have major USA 'exercises' . . .

Are the Chinese doing fun things, too?

Oh, and Iran is pulling off an exercise in June, too, right?

At least the Chinese are making shrill noises perhaps more shrill than ever re Taiwan.

Al-Qaida look alikes reported in Avon

Tamara Miller
May 28, 2004

Men residents thought resembled al-Qaida terror suspects have twice been reported to Avon police in the last few days.

Avon Police and an FBI agent determined one man was not one of the seven al-Qaida suspects federal officials are searching for. A second sighting, reported to police 24 hours later, could not be confirmed. Photographs of seven suspected terrorists, along with warnings of possible attacks from the federal government, have been widely published in newspapers this week.

A man identified as Samuel Mac, who called himself a manager at Denny's in Avon, recently complained to the Denver Post that FBI agents seemed uninterested when he reported seeing two men who resembled the pictures of al-Qaida suspects.

Avon Police weren't notified of the sighting, which allegedly occurred Wednesday, until 6:30 p.m. Thursday, said Det. Mike Leake. A person relayed a story he or she heard from servers that actually waited on the two men for dinner Wednesday evening.

Police interviewed the two servers, who said the men told them they were from Iran and were driving to the West Coast, Leake said. One of the servers pointed Leake to two pictures that were published on the front of the Denver Rocky Mountain News Wednesday. The man interviewed by the Denver Post said the two men resembled suspects Adnan G. El Shukrijumah and Abderraouf Jdey.

But Mac hasn't worked for Denny's for some time, restaurant officials said.

"He did not work for us at the time this was being reported," said Richard Wozniak, vice president of operations for Denny's. "If he was in our restaurant, he was calling as an individual."

Wozniak said the Denny's in Avon does have records of someone named Sam working there, but no one with the last name of Mac. An employee reached at the Avon Denny's said only that the man no longer worked there. She declined to comment further or give her name.

Leake said only the servers were interviewed by Avon police and the man interviewed by the Denver Post is an ex-manager who is friends with the two servers. But by the time Avon Police found out, there wasn't much they could do.

"The guys seen here are long gone," Avon Police Chief Jeff Layman said. "We don't even know who they were. Had they called the local police right away, we might have been able to track them down."

On the flip side, Avon Police were called to the Avon Post Office Thursday when a postal worker identified a customer as one of the suspects. Police arrived just as the man was leaving, but were able to provide other patrol officers a description of the man as well as a the truck he was driving.

The man was stopped at the entrance of Beaver Creek while an FBI agent from the Glenwood Springs office arrived to check him out. The man was later released when the FBI agent determined he was not one of the al-Qaida suspects, Leake said.

Citizens who believe they've spotted someone who resembles an al-Qaida suspect should contact their local police department first - not the FBI office in Washington, D.C., local police say.

"If you feel like you are seeing someone like that, by all means call us," Layman said. "But call your local law enforcement agency rather than trying to get a hold of the FBI."

The closest FBI office is in Glenwood Springs.

Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, local police have responded to three suspected anthrax reports, that turned out to be unfounded. This the first time Avon Police have received a report of a suspected terrorist in the area.

Attempts to locate Mac for comment were unsuccessful. The Sheriff's Office has not received reports of terrorist suspect sightings. The Vail Police Department did not return calls for comment.

1998, or 1999 I was at a gun show. One of the vendors had quite a collection of odds and ends including quite a bit of old jewelery. I bought a necklace from him. It's obviously Middle Eastern. I didn't realize until I got home that the main pendant hanging from the chain is actually a box that opens up. Inside was a piece of paper with arabic (?) writing. Hand written, about 4 sentences I would guess. Still have no idea what it says.

U.S. Muslim Group Calls for Plan Within Community to Fight Terrorism

By Robert Jablon/Associated Press

May 28, 2004

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A national Muslim group called Friday for a campaign within the Muslim community and mosques to root out terrorist supporters after federal officials said they were looking for a California man with links to al-Qaida. The Muslim Public Affairs Council's plan urged Muslims to "be on the lookout" for Adam Yahiye Gadahn, 25, although the FBI said he is not believed to be living in the country.


Terrorism has tarnished the Muslim-American community, Mathout said, and there have been accusations on some conservative talk shows that the community has failed to condemn violence.

"We are in complete partnership with good people to protect America," Mathout said as he explained the plan to hundreds of Friday worshippers at a Los Angeles mosque.

"We have so much at stake ... protecting our faith and our country," he said. "God forbid something terrible happens in America, the number one losers will be the Muslims."

The campaign says the Muslim community should give law enforcement information on terrorist suspects and emphasize that "terrorism is not a valid means of struggle in Islam." It also asks that mosque leaders make sure to authorize all lectures or talks there.

Two men wanted in connection with a FBI's terrorism investigation may have been seen in Naples, Maine -- about 30 miles from Conway, N.H.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation issued an alert Thursday that said a witness saw two men Sunday who fit the description of Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, 27, and Abderraouf Jdey, 38, two men they are seeking for questioning.

The men were reportedly headed south on Route 302 at around 4 p.m. in a newer model, slate gray BMW sedan

If you have access to a flatbed scanner, make a small JPG image and post here. I'm sure someone (SP2BF) could translate. "typing it in" might be challenging on a English oriented QWERTY keyboard :-)

Yup, there is no way I can type it in as it's in arabic.
Don't have a scanner any more but I'll see what I can do with the digital camera. I'm not thinking it is terrorist related. I have no idea what it says. Just always thought it was interesting.
