    WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was investigating the man who allegedly planned the Sept. 11 airplane hijackings and attacks on New York and Washington when he was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan, according to two former Central Intelligence Agency officials.

    NEW YORK — An FBI official says a notorious terrorist suspected of aiding the insurgency in Iraq will be added to the agency's list of its most wanted terrorists. The official said Monday that an FBI committee recommended this month that 73-year-old Palestinian Abu Ibrahim be placed on the list. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision wasn't official. An investigation by The Associated Press had revealed the terrorist was still alive and had fled to Syria. Ibrahim has been indicted in the 1982 bombing of Pam Am Flight 830. The explosion killed a 16-year-old boy and...

    *** ..... In 2008, the Institute for Defense Analyses released a more thorough report on Iraq's involvement in terrorism between the two gulf wars that was based on more than 600,000 captured Iraqi documents. The report says, "In December 1998, the IIS developed a new resource in the form of a small, radical Kurdish-based Islamist movement. In a series of memoranda, the IIS, the Iraqi Intelligence Service, reported being impressed with the new terrorist organization's 'readiness to target foreign organizations . . . . Iranian border posts, and Kurdish parties." *** In addition to the IDA report, which I think...

An indictment in Detroit accuses Muthanna Al-Hanooti of arranging for three members of Congress to travel to Iraq in October 2002 at the behest of Saddam's regime.

    In a February report from Web site tracking and analysis firm Netcraft, the Apache Web server dipped below 60% market share for the first time since September 2002. Subsequent monthly reports indicated that the downward trend had continued unabated. Now, five months later, Netcraft's July Web Server Survey confirmed this decline: Apache again lost ground to Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS).In July, Microsoft added 2.4 million sites, bringing the total number of Windows Server sites above the 40 million mark, Netcraft found. Microsoft's market share also received a boost, increasing 1% since June to reach 32.8% overall. Apache saw an...

    Watching the ball drop, twirling a noisemaker, kissing your sweetheart, and making a resolution that rarely comes to pass -- everyone looks forward to the memory of a new year. But one group will be ringing in the New Year a little differently…through a children’s jihad retreat, with a guest speaker who exalts terrorists and another who is linked to al-Qaeda. The majority of Islamic organizations within the United States have, at one time or another, been cited for their connections to terrorism, whether by support of terror groups or through actual terrorist activity carried out by its members.

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

Those flaws allow the Web server to install a program that takes control of the user's computer. The extent of the attacks is unknown, but the security community has seen numerous cases of personal computers infected when the user...

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS A BIG PROBLEM named Susan Lindauer, but you would never know this from the reporting by America’s dominant Left-leaning news media. Last Thursday Ms. Lindauer, 41, was arrested in her suburban Washington, D.C. home and charged with “prohibited financial transactions” from, acting as “an unregistered agent of,” and “conspiring” to act as a spy, both before and after the incursion a year ago, for Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS). Known in Arabic as the Mukhabbarat, the IIS has reportedly been involved in terrorist operations, intimidating and killing Iraqi defectors and dissidents, and according to Anwar...

    Is there any significance to what Web server/platform combinations 2004 presidential candidates are using? As we swing into the thick of the 2004 electoral playoffs, it's interesting to see what kinds of platforms are running under the candidates' official campaign Web sites. Netcraft has a handy feature called "What's that site running?" that lets us see combinations of Web servers and OS platforms. So here's a quick rundown, in alphabetical order: George W. Bush: Microsoft IIS on Windows 2000 Wesley Clark: Apache on Linux Howard Dean: Apache on FreeBSD John Edwards: Microsoft IIS "behind a computer running NetWare" Richard Gephardt:...

    When I am asked about the case for sending people into space, my answer is that, as a scientist, I’m against it. Most of what astronauts do in space can be done better and more cheaply now by computers and robots. Each advance in robotics and miniaturization only widens the efficiency gap between man and machine in space. Circling the Earth for months on end, the International Space Station is nothing more than a huge turkey in the sky. Now that only two astronauts are aboard the craft, the pursuit of any serious projects is even less likely; most of...

    June 4— BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian police have intercepted at least five envelopes containing white powder, including one addressed to the prime minister's office and another to the U.S. embassy, fearing it may be anthrax or another dangerous substance. Police had yet to determine the nature of the suspicious powder, a spokesman for the interior ministry said.The letters were reminiscent of the anthrax mailings in the United States which killed five people following the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington.Those letters caused a global scare that the bacteria was being used as a biological weapon.Belgian police seized...

    <p>Baghdad -- The huge, monumental building is crumpled like scrap paper, but it is surrendering its secrets slowly.</p> <p>The central headquarters of the Mukhabarat, Saddam Hussein's intelligence service, sits behind wide-open gates in central Baghdad, visited by a nonstop stream of impoverished Iraqis who, since the arrival of U.S. troops two weeks ago, have looted anything of the remotest material value -- from lamps to telephones to file holders.</p>

    <p>ON OCT. 29, 2002, a memo from Directorate 14 (in charge of special operations and “wet work” like assassinations) reported that “one of our sources in the United States, with a high level of reliability, says the CIA and the so-called opposition have a joint plan to bring ‘quislings’ to Iraq from the north and south to gather information and await future missions. Our informant will be one of them.” The memo suggests, disturbingly, that Saddam had a mole somewhere inside U.S. intelligence. Did he? Might he still? As the CIA’s legendary mole hunter James Jesus Angleton once said, espionage is a “wilderness of mirrors,” not least within spy services themselves, so it is hard to know. IIS agents routinely recycled old newspaper clips from foreign media and passed them off as secret reports from “informants of high reliability.” In a mid-2002 memo, the IIS chief reported that Saddam himself had ordered “a reassessment of our people abroad because information that the stations overseas send in are all in the public domain or from the media.”</p>

    Saddam tried to cut a deal before the bombs started to fall Documents implicating German involvement in an attempt to co-operate with the Iraqi secret service in the months before the Iraq war have surfaced from the ruins of Baghdad. Secret documents recovered from the bombed headquarters of Saddam Hussein's secret service in Baghdad show that German spies attempted to forge links with their Iraqi counterparts over a year before the war began. The papers, recovered by British journalists working for the daily newspaper The Telegraph, describe a meeting between German secret service agent Johannes William Hoffner, described as "the...

    FOR three days, American tanks have been shelling a military intelligence building in the posh Al-Khathamia area in west Baghdad. The dozen or so tanks are not here to pound intransigent fighters but to break down concrete beams and steel, to reach bunkers deep underground at the Al-Istikhbarat Al-'Askariya facility. The Marines found 123 prisoners, including five women, barely alive in an underground warren of cells and torture chambers. Being trapped underground probably kept them safe from the bombing of Baghdad by the coalition. Severely emaciated, some had survived by eating the scabs off their sores. All the men had...
