    DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan – An Iraqi al-Qaida operative was believed to be one of 15 militants killed in two U.S. missile strikes in Pakistan's tribal belt along the Afghan border Monday, Pakistani intelligence officials said. The officials said the man, identified as Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, handled the terrorist group's finances in Pakistan. He was not known to be on any published U.S. lists of wanted al-Qaida leaders, and U.S. officials do not normally acknowledge the existence of the CIA-led missile program or talk about who is being killed. The two strikes, coming roughly 24 hours apart, were the first...

    Top Al Qaeda operative taken into US custody 10 minutes ago The United States has taken into custody a top al-Qaeda operative who plotted to assassinate Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and other officials, a Pentagon spokesman said Friday. Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi, who was taken to the US navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba about a week ago, was intercepted while trying to reach Iraq to take over Al-Qaeda operations and to plot attacks from there against western targets outside Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said. He is "one of Al-Qaeda's highest ranking and senior operatives at the time of...

    President Obama finally listened to the outcry of New York, and is considering moving the trial of 9/11 terrorist Khalid Sheik Mohammed and other al Qaeda members out of the city, perhaps to Guantanamo Bay. Finally, some wisdom. It would be better there. It's military. They're not going to mess around. These dangerous terrorists will not be allowed to spread their hate, or hurt anyone else. Nobody knows better than me. I was a federal prison guard at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. In 2000, I was with a prisoner, Mamdouh Mahmud Salim, taking him back to his cell....

    THE UK BOMBING WERE EXPECTED. (sources quoted below) What is good in blogging is that you keep the infos alive. The MSM was able to say one day that IRAQ was behind 9/11 and suddenly put the story down without real reasons. There is many facts which shows UK is acting the same way with the present attacks and their obvious ties with IRAN. Al-Qaeda is not a self-sponsored organization. Nor has it the money, the intelligence and the personal. It is a window to fool the western intelligence and protect the sates. Al-Qaeda is state-sponsored terrorism. Like Hezbullah and...

    KABUL - The arrest of Al-Qaeda commander Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi, who worked with Afghanistan's Taliban, is a major success and will be a blow to terror networks, the Afghan defence ministry said Friday. "Al-Iraqi was very important for the terrorists' networks. His arrest is a major success," ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi told AFP. "It will help to get to the high-ranking terrorist network figures and it will have deeply negative effect on the network," he said. A Pentagon spokesman said the militant, on a US "most wanted" list, had been taken into US custody at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba...

    Two al-Qaida militants reported missing and suspected killed in Friday's U.S. missile attack in Pakistan are key regional commanders along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Afghan and Pakistani analysts said. Marwan As-Suri, believed to be in his 30s, is a Syrian who recently had been appointed to head al-Qaida operations in part of the Pakistani areas bordering Kunar, the Afghan said. According to the Afghan source, another important al-Qaida invitee to the dinner was Abdul Hadi Al-Iraqi, who reportedly has served as a liaison between al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida-backed guerrilla leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

    Al Qaeda’s branch in Iraq rallied Muslims to step up the fight while a militant group linked to the terror network promised a “gift” for Eid al-Fitr, a major Muslim holiday starting on Thursday. In an unprecedented move, the Al Qaeda Organization in the Land of Two Rivers posted a statement Wednesday on the Internet confirming the sighting of the new moon to signal the feast. It congratulated Muslims everywhere on the holiday, which marks the end of Ramadan, the month of daytime fasting and prayers. “From Mesopotamia we send our best wishes to the nation of tawhid (monotheism) for...

    WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) -- An Army sergeant who left his Georgia post six months ago was tracked down at his parents' home after a notebook with anti-American and anti-Semitic writings was found in his discarded backpack. Karim Iraq, 25, was arrested as a deserter and is being held without bail at the Palm Beach County Jail, sheriff's officials said. His father said the soldier fled Fort Stewart after the Army extended his enlistment because he had soured on the U.S. military mission in Iraq. The father said the soldier was also harassed over his Palestinian heritage. "He was feeling rejected...

    Canada bankrolled man's aid agency during that time U.S. authorities have tied a Canadian aid worker to the al-Qaeda terrorist network as far back as 1988, almost a decade before the Canadian government cut off funding to his Ottawa-based Muslim charity. Evidence unsealed by a U.S. judge in Chicago shows Ahmed Said Khadr had dealings with senior al-Qaeda leaders while being financed by the Canadian International Development Agency. Although CIDA stopped giving aid money to Mr. Khadr in 1997 after he was arrested for allegedly bombing an embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, the documents allege he was working with al-Qaeda long...

    The lawyer of an alleged top al-Qaida chief says his clients trial should be moved because so many New Yorkers say they were affected by the September 11th terrorist attacks, after his client protested the pain of his manacled wrists in court. U.S. District Judge Deborah Batts directed lawyers to submit written arguments about where the prison-stabbing trial should be held and other issues even as she set an April 10th trial date for Mamdouh Mahmud Salim (Mom-Doo-Mach-Mood-Sah-leem). Salim faces trial in the stabbing of a prison guard in the face while awaiting trial on an attempt to bomb two ...
