Guantanamo Detainees May Be Released in U.S.

Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners....

Pentagon chief likens bin Laden hunt to Unabomber

How long might it really take to find al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden? U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates suggests the FBI’s 17-year hunt for convicted Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski as a reasonable guide.

Or worse still, Gates said on Wednesday, consider the fate of Americans taken hostage decades ago in Lebanon who died before the United States could find and rescue them.

Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon, Gates dismissed the notion that something might be amiss because bin Laden and his top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahri, remain free more than seven years after the September 11 attacks.

“To a certain extent, I think too many people go to too many movies. Finding these guys is really hard, and especially if they have some kind of a support network,” he said......

23 DC Contractors to Lose Jobs Following Alleged Tech Office Scheme

The fallout continues from last week’s FBI raid on the D.C. technology office and the arrests of two men on corruption charges.

D.C. Attorney General Peter Nickles told WTOP-FM on Wednesday that the city is planning to terminate 23 contractors involved with the office.

The decision comes after the arrests Thursday of acting chief security officer Yusuf Acar and technology consultant Sushil Bansal....

Our New Terror Policy: Safety Last?

US judge refuses bail for terror suspect

WASHINGTON (AFP) — A US federal judge refused Wednesday to release on bail alleged Al-Qaeda sleeper agent Ali al-Marri, the last “enemy combatant” held on US soil.

Judge Robert Carr of the Charleston, South Carolina federal court ruled Marri was a danger to the community and was a flight risk, according to a copy of the detention order obtained by AFP.

“There are no conditions of release that will reasonably assure the defendant’s appearance as required and the safety of the community,” said Carr.

The judge cited government claims that Marri, 43, trained in Al-Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan and entered the United States on September 10, 2001 on a fraudulently obtained student visa.

Marri “maintained communications with (alleged 9/11 mastermind) Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, researched the use of toxins, and positioned himself as an Al-Qaeda sleeper agent in the US,” said Carr.....

Gitmo’s General

The U.S. can’t risk releasing detainee Ghassan Abdullah al Sharbi.

Last week, a D.C. district court dismissed a lawsuit brought on behalf of a Guantánamo detainee named Ghassan Abdullah al Sharbi. The 34 year-old Saudi told the court that he did not want to proceed with the case, which was originally brought by al Sharbi’s father to challenge his son’s detention. So, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted al Sharbi’s wish, leaving it to the Obama administration to decide his fate.

It is not surprising that al Sharbi did not want to challenge his detention at Guantánamo. He is a remorseless terrorist. And at the time of his capture, al Sharbi was admittedly plotting future attacks on American and allied forces in Afghanistan. It’s possible that he was prepared to do much more. Al Sharbi is, after all, one of the select al Qaeda members tasked with receiving flight training alongside the September 11 hijackers.....

Jordanian arrested in threat to Jewish school (Chicago)

A 24-year-old Jordanian national from the Far North Side was arrested this morning, accused of mailing a threatening letter to the Ida Crown Jewish Academy on New Year’s Eve in response to the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip, according to the FBI.

The man, whom authorities declined to identify until his initial court appearance at 10:15 a.m. in the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse, was the same man interviewed by federal authorities Feb. 12 when they searched his West Rogers Park apartment in the 6000 block of North Artesian Avenue for evidence related to the vandalism of several synagogues and Jewish schools in Chicago and Lincolnwood. Those incidents occurred on Jan. 10 in the wake of the Israeli airstrikes and troop incursions in the Gaza Strip.....

Government warns of nuclear terror threat

Britain faces an increased threat of a terrorist attack involving a chemical, biological or nuclear bomb, a major new government report has warned.

An increase in the theft and smuggling of dangerous substances means that terrorists are more likely to be able to use weapons such as a dirty bomb, according to the report.

The warning comes in the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy document called Contest 2, the most significant redrafting of the Government’s fight against violent extremists for six years.

The report warns: “Contemporary terrorist organisations aspire to use chemical, biological, radiological and even nuclear weapons......

Terrorism Recruiting Manual Worries Authorities

For months now, counterterrorism officials have seen signs that al-Qaida has been looking for new and innovative ways to recruit terrorists, including a new manual that has surfaced on the Internet.

Researchers at West Point recently stumbled on the 51-page manual while they were visiting a jihadi chat room, called Ecles. It’s a Web site that allows members to have interactive discussions, post videos and download manuals. Ecles is the second most popular jihadi chat room on the Web, and al-Qaida often posts things there. Because of that, it is a place counterterrorism analysts track regularly.

So when the West Point analysts discovered a step-by-step primer called “The Art of Recruiting Mujahedeen,” it got their attention......

CAIR’s Well-Deserved Expulsion

Terrorism is only one expression of jihad — there are others as dangerous.

A week ago, the FBI officially announced that it has cut ties with the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The self-styled civil-rights organization is characteristically squawking, but the FBI’s move was patently overdue — so much so that we ought to be asking: Why on earth did the FBI have ties with CAIR in the first place? .....
