    Last month, Senator Dianne Feinstein and other Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released the executive summary of their final report investigating the CIA's controversial detention and interrogation program. As part of their study, the Democrats compiled twenty case studies, which were intended to address claims made by the CIA regarding the efficacy of its interrogations. One of those case studies focused on the identification and arrest of Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri, who was freed from a US prison just days ago. Al Marri served as a "sleeper" operative for al Qaeda inside the US in 2001....

When I first posted this story, I said it smelled fishy. Now it positively stinks. Does this look like a clock to you? And now the plot thickens. In what has become one of the most egregious of the faked hate narratives, the bomb hoax clockster has a family with a history of supremacist stunts. “One of the earliest instances of the standout citizen making national news was in 2011, when he sensationally stood up to an anti-Islamic...

    A high school student in Texas whose hobby is inventing thought he had a great idea for a project: to build his own clock. The effort landed him in handcuffs and juvenile detention on Monday, accused of making a hoax bomb. The detention of Ahmed Mohamed, 14, a student at MacArthur High School in Irving, Tex., near Dallas, generated a national furor even after the police said on Wednesday that he would not be charged as questions arose about whether he was targeted because of his religion. The episode even came to the attention of the nation’s top leaders, who...

    The self-proclaimed Islamic State has used National Security Agency documents stolen by former contractor Edward Snowden to evade U.S. intelligence services, officials told the New York Times in a Tuesday story. The Times reported that fact deep in a story on the group’s efforts to evade and recover from American and Iraqi military strikes. Documents stolen and leaked to reporters by Snowden, who remains in hiding in Russia, have led to changes in IS operations that have prevented U.S. forces from gathering intelligence on the group, the Times reported. The Islamic State has also studied revelations from Edward J. Snowden,...

    There are individuals living in the United States today who have contact with the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) and other terrorist groups who have "a desire to conduct an attack" on U.S. soil, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." Johnson would not say how many such individuals the government is aware of, but did say the number is dwarfed by the number of people in Europe intent on carrying out out acts of terror there. And the ability to recruit and communicate through social media has only strengthened the ability to inspire...

    Groups fly under radar as Congress seems unconcerned Last week’s brazen attack by a “home-grown” terrorist cell in France that targeted the staff of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has sparked renewed interest in potential cells operating inside the United States. And there are many. The FBI is aware of at least 22 paramilitary Islamic communes in the U.S., operated by the shadowy Pakistan-based group Jamaat al-Fuqra and its main U.S. front group, Muslims of the Americas. With U.S. headquarters in Islamberg, New York, the group headed by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani operates communes in mostly remote areas of...

White House press secretary Josh Earnest has admitted [1] the mistake and apologized (perhaps a little wishy-washily, but we’ll give him a pass), informing us that, unfortunately, there just wasn’t enough time to arrange presidential security for the trip.That’s interesting. Somehow there was time for...

    Two men are in federal custody as the FBI investigates a possible terror cell that may be linked to suspected Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The men, known only as Diaz and Azmat, were arrested Saturday, April 20, in New Bedford, Mass. While the suspects are being held on immigration violations, their arrest was made after police received new information regarding a possible 12-member terror cell operating in the area. Investigators say the group’s main focus may have been training the brothers to build compact explosives like the bombs used in the marathon attack and those thrown at...

    An unbylined Associated Press report (graphic saved here) appearing at ABC News (time-stamped 9:51 a.m. at the AP's main national site; graphic saved here) reports that Boston Mayor Tom Menino appeared on ABC's "This Week" and said, in the AP's words, that "the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing acted alone." The brief AP report's third paragraph then has Menino saying, again in AP's words, that "another person was taken into custody" after "a pipe bomb was found in another location." This apparent inconsistency seems to be an attempt by the mayor to minimize the degree of homegrown "sleeper cell"...

    We don’t know whether Dzhokar Tsarneav and Tamerlan Tsarneav were aligned with any Muslim terrorist organization, but there is no reason that they had to be. Most recent Muslim terrorist plots were carried out by “lone wolves”, individuals or small groups, who received their Islamist indoctrination and explosives training through the Islamic internet of Jihadist social media. It may turn out that the Tsarneavs attended a terrorist training camp at some point in the past. But it may be just as likely that they never did. Terrorist training camps still exist, but they are becoming relics when it comes to...

    The Army psychiatrist accused of the Fort Hood massacre apparently acted alone and without outside direction in the attack, investigative officials said Monday evening. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan will be charged by the U.S. military rather than in a civilian court, they said. Although investigative officials portrayed Hasan as a lone wolf, the investigators and a U.S. official disclosed that Hasan communicated 10 to 20 times with a radical imam overseas who in the past came under scrutiny for possible links to terror groups. The investigative officials said the communications began last year and continued into this year and "were...

The psychologist testified during the first day of a sentencing hearing for 44-year-old former Bradley University graduate student Ali al-Marri, who has admitted training in al-Qaida camps and having contact with those involved in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The second and what is scheduled to be the final day of al-Marri's sentencing is Thursday in U.S. District Court in Peoria. The Qatar native faces up to 15 years in prison after pleading...

Officials insist there was no threat. But the prayer sites set up by Muslim workers in cloak rooms, depots and other areas at Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports were quietly shuttered. There are three official prayer rooms still open at each airport, just as there are chapels for Christians and synagogues for Jews.

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A U.S. citizen accused of joining al-Qaida and plotting to assassinate President Bush said in a videotaped confession that he was motivated by hatred of American support for Israel. Ahmed Omar Abu Ali also said on the tape, played in court for the first time Tuesday, that a top al-Qaida operative in Saudi Arabia "made it clear I became one of them and that I could speak in the name of al-Qaida." The 13-minute confession was videotaped in 2003 by authorities in Saudi Arabia, where Abu Ali attended college. His attorneys want the confession thrown out....

    Hollywood's favorite bad guy is a Muslim terrorist, preferably one who looks like he's come from the Middle East, is accompanied by a mysterious-sounding Arabic soundtrack and ends up on the losing side."The Siege" pitted Denzel Washington, Annette Bening, and Bruce Willis against Muslim fanatics who wanted to take a bite out of the Big Apple. "Executive Decision" paired up Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal to take on Arab hijackers. The small screen has followed the big screen, from Fox-TV's breathless "24" series to the CBS CIA drama, "The Agency." Now it's Showtime's turn, with a 10-hour project called "Sleeper...
  • Films show terrorists as people

    Films show terrorists as people USA Today allows only the headline and the link, but paraphrasing, the article describes how movies like Syriana, Munich, and the Showtime series "Sleeper Cell" show terrorists in a sympathetic light. Farther down in the article, George Clooney says it's because of the public's "displeasure" with the Iraq war. I would suggest that it goes a few steps further. These movies are intended to turn the public against the war against terrorism, and they are trying to drum up sympathy for the terrorists. Do click on the link and read this.

    Education is prime. In order for the world to know the reality of Islam, education is absolutely imperative. Therefore, the TV series, "Sleeper Cell," is a must. It should be viewed worldwide. True. There are some Muslims who are sheltered, particularly the young who live in freedom-based countries. They may not know that much about the Koran. They may attend mosques irregularly. They may be like some churchgoers who attend sanctuary several times a year and still call themselves "Christians." But the real truth about Islam is found in reading the killing passages in the Koran. (See footnote). It is...

    Sleeper Cell By Barry Garron Bottom line: A riveting, edge-of-your-seat drama about danger in our backyards. 10-11 p.m., Sunday-Wednesday, Dec. 4-7 and 11-14 Showtime From time to time, Washington announces that terrorist plots have been foiled, but is anyone really breathing easier? Although the orange alerts pretty much stopped after the last election, who knows whether all our security upgrades have made us safer or only left us with a false sense of security? These are among the nagging questions that arise in "Sleeper Cell," a bold and suspenseful 10-part miniseries. The premiere is so filled with unexpected turns and...

    London Terror Angle - Now Is The Time To Move Against The Islamists! By Beila Rabinowitz, Special to PipeLineNews July 7, 2005 - Osceola County, FLA - PipeLineNews - The terror attacks which the British government had stated were inevitable have finally taken place; as the authorities have pointed out, there may be more to come. What commentators have so far failed to take note of, was that viable threats were already there before the attack. They have been there, in some cases for years. As recently as two months ago, Omar Bakri Mohammed, the head of the al-Qaeda...

    Once Again, Hollywood Stretches Credulity -- This Time With 'Sleeper Cell'by James Lileks Here we go again. Showtime will run a series called "Sleeper Cell," about an American Muslim who infiltrates a terrorist cell. He's an African-American, not Arab-American. The cell's members are a Frenchman named Christian, an Egyptian-American, a white rich American, and a Bosnian. There was probably a Hmong Muslim terrorist, but he tested poorly with focus groups. Frenchmen. Bosnians. White boys. No Saudis? Please. Who do the producers think the Marines are fighting in Iraq? Oh, it's entirely possible that the real secret weapon of Islamist...

    LOS ANGELES - The two members of the Islamic terrorist cell pulled up to the curb at the airport and quickly exited their Cadillac Escalade. (snip) The lead character is an undercover F.B.I. agent who has managed to infiltrate a Southern California sleeper cell largely because he is a practicing Muslim. The character, Darwyn, is the first major role created on an American series - whether before or after the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackings - that depicts a Muslim as a hero seeking to check the intentions of terrorists. That the production has such a high gloss of credibility -...

    Lodi Series, Part I - Why Pakistan? June 16, 2005 - Lodi, CA - PipeLineNews - Although Osama bin-Laden formed al-Qaeda in 1988 during the Russian occupation of Afghanistan, possibly of more immediate concern with regard to understanding the events as they unfold in Lodi is The International Islamic Front for Holy War Against Jews and Crusaders [IIF] which bin-Laden founded in February of 1998 as a world-wide confederation of terror groups. The IIF immedately issued the following fatwa against the United States, the now infamous declaration of war: "The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies, civilians,...
