    Six Navy SEALs filed a lawsuit against the Associated Press and one of its reporters yesterday, saying the news organization revealed their identities, compromised their security and invaded their privacy by publishing personal photographs in a Dec. 4 story.     The complaint says AP reporter Seth Hettena used about 40 images from the personal photo-storage Web site of a Navy SEAL wife. [snip] The images were picked up by the Arab press, including Al Jazeera, and have made their way onto a billboard outside U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees from the war on terror are being kept.

    A militant Muslim who reportedly traveled from London to Oregon in 1999 to scout out a possible terrorist training camp has been arrested in Sweden. The arrest yesterday of Oussama Kassir — who authorities say once boasted of being "a hit man" for Osama bin Laden — appears linked to the federal investigation into Abu Hamza al-Masri, the radical London cleric accused of sending Kassir to the United States to help James Ujaama, of Seattle, and others train for jihad. Ujaama pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to supply goods and services to the Taliban in Afghanistan. As part of...

    The seeds of 9/11 thrived under the Taliban's regime of repression, reprisal and death KABUL - The road that led to Sept. 11 began on Sarak Darulaman, the long, broad avenue that leads to the ruined King's Palace in the west of the city. Here, within sight of the base camp for the 1,900 Canadian troops now in Afghanistan, lies a rusted-out, shattered bulk container, perforated with holes from bullet and cannon fire. None of the locals will go near the twisted wreckage, or any of the dozens of similarly wrecked containers scattered around the city: They know the story....

    The long arm of the US “war on terrorism” employs remarkably tender gloves when it comes to Pakistan, the original backer of the Taleban movement that offered Osama bin Laden sanctuary as he plotted the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks ­ and the only state in the Muslim world certainly known to possess weapons of mass destruction.

It had backed ruthless cross-border insurgencies in Kashmir and India, developed a nuclear...

    In Afghanistan, the war on terror is anything but over By Phil Reeves in Afghanistan 11 September 2003 Afghans are not easily shocked. Repeated invasion, decades of civil war and centuries of poverty harden a place. Yet the latest atrocity to hit this nation was stunningly brutal, even by their dismal standards. It happened early on Monday afternoon, a multiple execution by men determined to render it impossible for the international community to reconstruct or stabilise the country under the control of a US- supported government. Five local workers from the Danish Committee for Aid to Afghanistan (Dacaar) were bumping...

Their soldiers are working with the Americans," says Jan, himself a small-time opium grower. Nearly two years after the collapse of Taliban rule, ordinary Afghans like...
