Christmas wishes & a message to our readers

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

25 December 2010: To our Christian readers, the staff and associates of the Northeast Intelligence Network would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and joyous Christmas day.

The United States of America was founded on men possessing strong Biblical principles and Judeo-Christian beliefs. I am constantly amazed by people who deny our religious heritage and argue that America exists in spite of our Judeo-Christian philosophy and not because of it. If that is your position, please feel free to stop reading here and move on to a more secular article with my respectful and best wishes for a pleasant day.

Those who are still with me, I would like to prayerfully request that you thoughtfully consider the state of our nation on this Christmas Day. For Christians in America and throughout the world, today is the celebration of the birth of our Lord & Savior. It is a joyous day, yet that joy is too frequently overshadowed by the commercialism of the season. It seems that collectively, we have lost the true meaning of Christmas along with the internal guidance of our divinely inspired spirituality.

Much like the way the true meaning and spirit of Christmas has been diluted and distorted, so too has our reality of current  and recent historical events been diluted, corrupted and changed beyond recognition. Many don’t even realize how far we’ve strayed in principle and action. In our life journey, we’ve seem to have taken our eyes off of the star of Bethlehem, the miraculous star that announced the birth of our Lord and led the wise men to our Savior, according to biblical accounts. Losing sight of the Christmas star, the beacon of  truth and guidance to the wise men following its path, is not entirely due to our attention deficits. The beacon of truth has been deliberately obscured by people who are busily working to destroy us at an alarming pace. Our enemies are many, and often pose as scholars, American politicians and world leaders, respected religious leaders, and even our own friends.

We are engaged in a war that has expanded well beyond what most of us imagined on the first Christmas Day of the new millennium. Within the last decade, our nation has been attacked - most visibly on 9/11, but continues to be attacked on a daily basis. We are fighting a war that has its roots in the story of Isaac and Ishmael, and a larger conflict that involves good versus evil. It is not only our war, but a prophetic global war that is raging. Those who read the Bible find reassurance as we know how this spiritual war ends, but often fail to realize that a lot must happen before victory over evil is achieved. I believe, as do most of or staff and associates, that we are at the onset or somewhere in the midst of this epic battle.

Although we should take today to celebrate the birth of our Lord and our salvation, we should also prepare ourselves for the coming days. The final throes of this battle might not happen in our lifetimes, but we must act as it could. We must assume positions of leadership to prepare ourselves, our families, and the especially the next generation for what is to come. We need to be true to ourselves and to our loved ones, and must never temper the truth with political correctness or historical revisionism.

We need to keep our eyes on the Christmas star, follow that star and gain strength in spirit for the battle that is being waged and the battles yet to come. We need to ask for spiritual guidance for the ability to recognize and discern both good and evil, and be prepared to fight against evil accordingly. Exposing evil that exists within our own “house” is a large part of this path. It is our collective Christmas promise by me and my associates that we will work tirelessly to expose the evil that is raging from without and by others.  That is our virtual Christmas present to you.

Thank you for your years of loyal readership, your friendship, your advice, and most importantly, for your desire to be on the right side of history and the war for our souls.

Merry Christmas, and may God bless all of you and our nation.

A mission revised

“There is one major difference, however, between our initial focus and our operation of today. It is a difference born of a combination of experience, investigative insight, and the more visible actions of opponents to our security and freedoms. It is our broadened investigative focus of every individual or group who threatens our security and way of life, whether through terrorism or tyranny.  Failure to address the former illustrates a lack of credibility. Failure to address the latter exhibits a lack integrity. Failure to address both will lead to the ultimate destruction of our country. We are committed to addressing all.  Buckle up and stay tuned.- Douglas J. Hagmann

The birth of an organization

13 December 2010: In the immediate aftermath of the 2001 attacks on America, nearly a dozen career investigators located throughout the United States joined together to proactively search for existing threats to the U.S.  Individually and collectively, we were affected by the events of that day and in the days that immediately followed, having lost family members, friends or professional colleagues by these murderous attacks or in the subsequent rescue and recovery efforts.

We were united in not only grief, but in resolve to do anything and everything in our power to protect our nation, our communities, our friends and loved ones from further death and destruction to the best extent of our abilities. Our group ultimately became known  as the Northeast Intelligence Network, a name adopted by our organization based in part on the geographical concentration of investigators in the northeast portion of the U.S.

As a result of an initial conference involving all members of the Northeast Intelligence Network, I was selected to be the spokesperson and primary contact for our organization. Some investigators, due to their roles in undercover assignments in the private sector and in their capacity as commissioned law enforcement officers, are legitimately required to remain anonymous.

As we became more well known inside and beyond law enforcement and intelligence circles, other individuals became involved as volunteer assets, allowing us to expand into military and other areas of intelligence. All such individuals have been thoroughly vetted and provided their bona fides for verification.

Immediately following the establishment of our organization, we provided the U.S. Department of Justice an outline of our organization, our intended course of action, and complete dossiers of our members. In early 2002, we received specific instructions from the USDOJ on the channels to be used to furnish both critical and non-critical information regarding terrorist threats.

Although many of those channels remain active and operational today, we have successfully cultivated other channels to assure that the recipients of our information are truly committed to preserving the security, sovereignty and safety of our nation.  The significance of this will become clear.

Initial focus & activities

Although all of us were aware of the threat posed by Islamic terrorism well before September 2001, we were shocked by our initial findings relative to the scope and severity of the threat that existed already inside of the U.S. We discovered what professional intelligence analysts, most in the private sector, had known for some time: Islamic terrorists, their sympathizers and supporters were exploiting our laws and religious freedoms to wage war against us. They were freely using the Internet to recruit, motivate and train terrorists and terrorist sympathizers domestically and abroad to not only physically carry out additional terrorist attacks to murder and maim innocent civilians, but to infiltrate all aspects and all levels of our own government and other Western governments.  In addition to those individuals and groups committed to attacking us with bombs and bullets, there exists a covert network of supporters and sympathizers, many who were and are posing as Muslim “moderates.”

Between 1 October 2001 through the early spring of 2002, the Northeast Intelligence Network operated without public interaction. As a result of our findings relative to the extent of the threat we faced, the level of infiltration we found, and what we perceived as the various degrees of compromise of numerous federal agencies, we opted to create an informational web site to provide the public with our investigative results.

Collectively we felt that this would have a two-fold purpose. First, it would serve as an informational and perhaps and educational outlet for the public, illustrating the extent of the threats we were observing. Secondly, it would serve as an informal method of accountability with regard to the general information we provided to federal authorities.  With regard to the former, we were the first agency to post the actual videos of Muslim terrorists beheading their captors.

Amid a flurry of national controversy, we did this to illustrate the savage nature of those who declared war against us at a time when the corporate media was just beginning to downplay these despicable acts. Based on the many thousands of e-mails we received about showing the full video clips of the beheadings, one thing became clear: the majority of the public was unaware of the evil and barbaric savagery of Islamic terrorism.

Over the years, we have investigated numerous suspicious incidents, identified, translated and submitted numerous Internet postings of known and suspected terrorists, received countless tips, conducted numerous field investigations and provided volumes of documents to a variety of federal agencies. In a venue where feedback is never requested or expected, we were surprised by receiving brief acknowledgements that some of the data we provided indeed changed the course of certain events. That feedback came from those with “boots on the ground” who actually responded to such information. We are very thankful for these heroic and patriotic men and women of law enforcement, who understand and abide by the U.S. Constitution, for their actions in keeping our nation truly safe.

It is therefore interesting that it has been some of these very same people who have admitted that despite their best efforts and the authenticated veracity of some of the information we have provided, they have been “waved off” certain cases. Follow-up and further scrutiny found no legitimate purpose behind such instruction. Obviously, one must ask “why?”

Furthermore, we have documented instances of paramilitary style training taking place inside the U.S. Our documentation has even been cited in books, investigative articles, and even government published reports. As a result of exposing such activity, we have received numerous threats by Islamic terrorists, including one particularly high profile Pakistani sheikh who was involved in the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl. Yet these well documented activities that are obviously contrary to our national security have been allowed to continue unfettered. Again, one must ask “why?”

Growing forward

The Irish poet and dramatist Oscar Wilde wrote “the pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.”

As investigators, we have always been committed to seeking the truth, regardless of where that path to the truth might lead. That tactic was often the cause of much frustration, as we began to notice that certain “truths” were handled differently than others.  As in all types of thorough and truly independent investigations, sometimes revealing the truth is inconvenient, embarrassing, and downright messy. This is particularly relevant when political agendas influence and even corrupt the letter and spirit of our Constitution, the laws of our founders.

Currently, there are numerous other intelligence and security web sites that report strictly on Islamic terrorism as a “stand-alone” threat to our society. These sites are often integrated and utilized by the highest levels of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Our incidental interaction with these sites and the agencies behind them found very little distinction between the information they are publicly providing to the public and the official version being provided by the actual government agencies.  We have been troubled by this contrived consistency, especially as it moves farther from fact and truth.

There are also other web sites that offer information about the of Islamic terror threats, and provide commentaries and editorials that present such threats through the single lens of one political party or the other. They often elevate one party over another, one politician over another, or in some instances, deliver their message in a shrill, derogatory and sometimes profane fashion. Their messages appear to become marginalized by their methods or allegiances.

Specific reference to both types of sites is made here as we believe that they tend to shy away from issues that involve negligence or even complicity with respect to the Islamic terror threat. In both cases, there seems to be a reluctance to present Islamic terrorism as only one single component to the growing variety of threats facing our great country.

It is our collective view that both types of sites are perilously myopic if not disingenuous to truth. The whole truth.

As of December 2010, I am pleased to report that all of the investigators who initially established the core of our network remain active today. All continue to bring to this organization a wealth of professional experience in different “real world” areas of expertise, from tracking criminal and terrorist activities in cyberspace to excelling in various other investigative disciplines. We remain deeply committed to identifying threats to us as a country and to the freedom of West.

There is one major difference, however, between our initial focus and our operation of today. It is a difference born of a combination of experience, investigative insight, and the more visible actions of opponents to our security and freedoms. It is our broadened investigative focus of every individual or group who threatens our security and way of life, whether through terrorism or tyranny.  Failure to address the former illustrates a lack of credibility. Failure to address the latter exhibits a lack integrity. Failure to address both will lead to the ultimate destruction of our country.

We are committed to addressing all.  Buckle up and stay tuned.

Miscarriage of Justice: The Omar Khadr case & the family of monsters

By Douglas J. Hagmann

2 November 2010: On Sunday, 31 October 2010, a military jury handed down a 40-year sentence to Omar KHADR, a Canadian teenage al Qaeda terrorist who killed U.S. Special Forces Sergeant First Class Christopher  Speer and wounded several others in a grenade attack in Afghanistan in July 2002. The Canadian born Khadr also admitted to planting mines in Afghanistan before being captured that were constructed to kill or injure U.S. and allied forces.

Khadr holds the distinction of being the only person in modern history to be charged for war crimes committed as a minor. Lest Amy Goodman, the American progressive and principal host of Democracy Now (and someone who has apparently never met a terrorist who hasn’t tugged at her heartstrings) becomes too despondent, it is unlikely that Khadr will serve more than eight years in prison.

You see, the sentence was merely symbolic as diplomatic agreements between U.S. and Canadian progressives had already limited the second generation al Qaeda terrorist’s prison time to a more palatable eight years. Additionally, Canadian politicians agreed to permit Khadr to serve the majority of his sentence there. He will be released with sufficient time to continue his Islamic jihad against the West.

To fully appreciate the audacity of the Khadr family and their supporters, consider that the Khadr family appears to dislike everything about Western culture except the “free” medical care. Omar’s mother, Maha Elsamnah Khadr, returned to Canada to take advantage of the health care system to treat her 14-year-old son Karim, who was paralyzed during a gun battle between al Qaeda terrorists and Pakistani security officers.  It was during that same gun battle that Ahmed Said Khadr, Maha’s husband and father of Omar and Karim and a “high-profle” member of al-Qaeda and assistant to Osama bin Laden, was killed.

And if that isn’t revolting enough, Variety reported in June 2005 that Harvard grad and screenwriter Kier Pearson, known for his work in Hotel Rwanda, was rumored to be working on a script for Paramount Pictures on a movie based on the life of Khadr family. It is rumored that the movie deal “might be worth ‘mid to high six figures’  [to the Khadr clan] if the movie makes it to the theaters.”

Meanwhile, the surviving and as-yet unencumbered members of the Khadr family remain free in Canada, playing fast and loose with Western freedoms, including among other things, engaging in alleged sexual deviancy while being supported by the good citizens of our neighbors to the north.

The Khadr family: A Timeline National Post

Package bomb plot is still “an active situation”

Warning to U.S. Citizens: “Next Day Delivery Plot” could be diversion for something more… See assessment below

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

1 November 2010: Intelligence officials from the U.S. and Great Britain have confiscated a total of 26 packages over the last three days, indicating that the “package bomb” attempt is much larger than being reported. More packages are being sought and every parcel originating from Yemen is being treated as a security threat, according to intelligence officials. Intelligence officials report that at least five suspects have been arrested and interrogated since Saturday in an effort to determine the operatives involved in the bombing attempt.  Several Yemeni employees of the shipping companies, including two from FedEx, are currently being investigated.

Of the numerous packages confiscated, two were found to contain explosive devices containing PETN based explosive material,  the very type warned about by the Northeast Intelligence Network on 17 October 2010 in this article. Both originated from Yemen and were addressed to Jewish synagogues in the Chicago area. They were intercepted by security officials in the UK and Dubai.

THE PACKAGE BOMBS

According to intelligence officials, both packages consisted of PETN based explosives expertly concealed inside printer toner cartridges. The cartridges were then carefully wrapped for shipping. At least one of the bombs cleared an initial inspection by authorities even though they were looking for such a device. Both devices had the ability to bring down an aircraft.

The bomb intercepted in Dubai contained a closed electrical circuit connected to a mobile phone SIM card, which was hidden inside a toner cartridge within a  Hewlett Packard printer.  Notably, the device could have been detonated through the use of the cellular phone components, an issue raised by this agency since 2006. The printer was in a box with a textbook on management,  a copy of The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot and various other handmade items, including a pink and purple lidded basket.

The second bomb was reportedly affixed to a mechanical timer that was to act as the detonator.

Both packages were addressed to Jewish synagogues in Chicago, although authorities suspect that at least one, if not both of the explosive devices were intended to be detonated while the plane was in flight.

ROUTES OF TRAVEL

Both intercepted packages were sent by UPS and FedEx from their offices in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.  The packages were transported by both cargo and passenger flights at different parts of their journeys. The bomb that was intercepted in Dubai was transported on two separate Qatar Airways passenger flights, initially from Yemen to Doha on an Airbus A 320 and then to Dubai on a Boeing 777.

The bomb that was intercepted in the UK also traveled through Dubai from Yemen, having passed through Cologne, Germany before reaching the UK.

THE BOMBER

Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri, a/k/a Abu Saleh

Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri a/k/a Abu Saleh

Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri, a/k/a Abu Saleh, 28, was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in April 1982. Throughout his early life, he lived with his family, including four brothers and three sisters, in Saudi Arabia. Based on intelligence reports, he was imprisoned in Saudi Arabia on undisclosed charges at one time, although was released.

According to intelligence officials, al-Asiri became closely associated with U.S. born al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki (a/k/a Anwar Nasser Abdulla Aulaqi) sometime in 2006 or 2007. In 2007, Ibrahim al-Asiri and his younger brother, Abdullah, 23 at that time, left the family home in Mecca shortly before the al-Asiri family’s planned return to Riyadh.

According Hassan al-Asiri, a retired Saudi soldier and the father of both Ibrahim and Abdullah, the next time he heard anything about his sons was when he learned of the assassination attempt of Saudi’s security chief, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef in August 2009. That attempt was orchestrated by  Ibrahim al-Asiri, who reportedly conspired with his younger brother Abdullah to kill the Saudi security chief by concealing an explosive device containing about 100g of PETN inside his body that was detonated by a chemical fuse.

Under the pretext of wanting to surrender in person to the prince, the younger Abdullah was flown to of Jeddah, where he met with Prince Mohammed bin Nayef. During that meeting, Abdullah al-Asiri detonated the explosive device but only caused minor injuries to the Saudi prince. Abdullah, however, was blown in half by the explosion. Ibrahim al-Asiri reportedly built the bomb and assisted his brother to conceal it on his person.

Ibrahim al-Asiri is wanted for his role in several high profile terror operations, including his involvement in the failed Christmas Day 2009 bombing attempt of a passenger aircraft  as it flew into Detroit. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, known as the underwear bomber, was arrested for attempting to ignite an explosive device that was concealed in his underwear. That bomb, along with the cargo bombs intercepted by authorities last week, were identical in the chemical composition and possessed the same type of detonation device.

Ibrahim al-Asiri is a member of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). which was formed in January 2009 through the merger of two Muslim terrorist groups in Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The terrorist organization is populated by terrorists returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as a number of terrorists who have been released from Guantanamo Bay.

Bulk cell phone purchases & the Nexus to terrorism

9 August 2006: For the last 18 months, investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network have been actively informing the public, store-owners, managers and law enforcement about the nexus between the bulk purchases of pre-paid cellular telephones and international terrorism. READ

15 August 2006: Two separate terrorism-related cases involving men of Islamic males of Middle Eastern descent and bulk purchases of cell phones were ripped to shreds by the PC-ruled FBI on Monday, causing the leaders from Arab-American organizations to proclaim that the arrested men were ”victims of racial profiling.” READ

24 August 2006: The recent series of arrests of Middle Eastern men involved in the purchase of prepaid cellular telephones is the apparent subject of debate. There are those who are insulting the sensibilities of the American public by desperately trying to explain the issue as nothing more than young men who are embracing the entrepreneurial American spirit – the very spirit that made this country great – by purchasing large quantities of cell phones and reselling them for a profit.

Target: Jewish centers & synagogues

29 October 2010: Consistent with our warning in June that Muslim terrorists were plotting attacks against Jewish centers and synagogues in the U.S., authorities intercepted cargo flights originating in Yemen and commercial flights with suspicious cargo containing explosive packages on their way to Chicago via New York.  Based on information obtained during the last 24 hours, “several” flights and airports are involved and are being (or have been) subjected to inspection and investigation.  According to sources close to the Northeast Intelligence Network confirmed that explosives have indeed been found in at least one cargo shipment. Intelligence officials have identified the Islamic terrorist group, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), as the operational group behind this explosives plot.

U.S. Intelligence official: “Serious breach of internal security” at 1 - 2 overseas airports.

Additional information will be forthcoming. For updated reports, tune in to The Roth Show today from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET.

Western Jihad, Anwar al Awlaki & “the Saudi Factor”

By Douglas J. Hagmann

As a direct result of our outreach to “moderate Muslims” and shameful pandering to Saudi interests, the “field commander” of the Saudi cell that slammed an aircraft into the Pentagon attended a luncheon there just months after the attack.

21 October 2010: As Americans, we were promised by President Bush that everyone responsible for the wholesale murder of nearly 3000 of our family members on September 11, 2001 and those harboring or aiding them would be brought to justice. Sadly, that promise was only partially true under the Bush administration, and demonstrably untrue under the current Obama administration. It is currently hindered by an unprecedented level of conflicts of interests within the Holder justice department.

Although the ongoing injustice for acts of Islamic terrorism waged against Americans pre-dates the Obama administration, the most egregious examples of pandering to Islamic terrorists have certainly occurred under his watch. The massacre at Fort Hood by Major Nidal Malik Hassan, the thwarted Christmas Day bombing attempt of a U.S. airline, and the failed bombing in Times Square are just a few of the higher profile incidents where the motives rooted in Islam were unquestionably clear yet not publicly acknowledged.

A look at the larger picture, however, reveals a more insidious problem of influence and infiltration that extends much deeper into U.S. politics and is not limited to any one political party or administration. That is the problem of Saudi influence and infiltration, or “the Saudi factor,” which has adversely affected U.S. counter-terrorism investigations for at least the last quarter century and the last five administrations. Their financial influence and fifth-column infiltration has successfully affected the media, government policies, and most absurdly, frustrated countless counter-terrorism investigators, field agents and derailed investigations.

Perhaps the clearest example of the “Saudi factor” disrupting counter-terrorism agents in the field is current al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki (a/k/a Anwar Nasser Abdulla Aulaqi). He is presently recruiting men and women in the U.S. and Canada to Islamic jihad from a base of operation believed located in Yemen, and is the poster child of Saudi influence and infiltration at the highest levels of the United States government.

Yesterday, Catherine Herridge of Fox News revealed that that a Pentagon official invited al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki to a luncheon of military brass at the Pentagon in the wake of 9/11. A heavily redacted “302,” or FBI interview form, was posted by Fox News that provided just enough information to confirm that the al Qaeda terrorist did indeed infiltrate our military headquarters - by invitation. The 302 notes that al Awlaki was “vetted” prior to the invitation and no problems concerning his background were found.

That’s odd, considering that Anwar al-Awlaki was on the radar screens of counterterrorism investigators since at least the mid-1990′s and had numerous run-ins with the law going back to his college days. Counterterrorism investigators found that al Awlaki was also involved, through an associate, with “blind sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, the Muslim terrorist involved in the New York City landmark bomb plot and whose followers were convicted of the 1993 bombing attack of the World Trade Center.

For those who are unaware of his history, Anwar Al Awlaki was born in New Mexico on April 21, 1971 to a Yemeni diplomat who was assigned in the U.S. at that time. Both of his parents were in the U.S. attending New Mexico State University as graduate students.

He received an engineering degree from Colorado State University, compliments, in part, to about $60,000 in scholarship money he fraudulently received from a U.S. government taxpayer funded program. He lied on his application for a US Agency for International Development grant.  In 1990, he lied on his social security application and college documents, stating that he was an international student born in Sana’a, Yemen. He then obtained a Master’s degree in Education from San Diego State University. He also attended George Washington University for a PhD in Human Resource Development on a scholarship provided by the Ministry of Education in Yemen, and received religious training from a France based Islamic correspondence program on Sharia and Islamic jurisprudence.

From 1996 through 2000, Anwar al Awlaki was the Iman at the Masjid Ar-Ribat al-Islami mosque in San Diego. While in San Diego, al-Awlaki was also twice arrested for soliciting prostitutes -once in August 1996 and again in April 1997.

If the Saudi funded “Rabat” mosque rings a familiar bell, it should, as it is where two of the 9/11 terrorists of an exclusively Saudi cell , Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar “worshipped.” In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, counter-terrorism investigators identified Anwar al Awlaki as a person of interest based on his private and frequent meetings with al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar at the mosque after Friday prayers.

Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar were two terrorists of the exclusive Saudi cell that attacked the Pentagon, the very location where al Awlaki dined with top military officials. al Awlaki  was also associated with a third 9/11 Muslim terrorist during his time at the Saudi-funded Dar-al-Hijrah Mosque and Islamic Center. The telephone number to that mosque was found by investigators in an apartment in the Hamburg, Germany apartment of Ramzi BINALSHIBH, a close associate of Mohammed ATTA and a planner of the 9/11 attacks.

On September 17, 2001, just six days after the 9/11 attacks and four days after former President Bush met with Saudi Prince Bandar on the Truman Balcony at the White House, federal authorities met with and interviewed al Awlaki, eventually releasing him.

Meanwhile, al Awlaki was the subject of a terror-finance investigation of the now defunct SAAR  Group, which was funded by the Saudis. It is relevant to note here that an official of the SAAR Group, Jamal Barzinji, a prominent donor and supporter of Barack Obama, signed the deed for the Dar al-Hijrah mosque where al Awlaki was the Imam. And speaking of taxpayer’s money, it was recently reported by the Investigative Project on Terrorism that the U.S. Census Bureau has been paying Dar al-Hijrah about $23,000 per month since November 2008 to rent space in one of its buildings. Also, the U.S. State Department has used the mosque in promotional videos about America’s Muslim community, and sent students from its Foreign Service Institute to Dar al-Hijrah.

Although al Awlaki is of Yemeni descent, it is important to examine and understand the Saudi influence, connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, and Islamic infiltration of all levels of U.S. government.

While the statute of limitations had passed for the misrepresentations made by al Awlaki in 1990, investigators found that he applied for a U.S. passport in Denver several years later. Considering his potential value as a source under interrogation for terrorism plots and terror finance related cases, investigators sought and successfully obtained a felony arrest warrant in 2002 based on the passport fraud. Investigators detained al Awlaki at JFK Airport in New York on October 10, 2002 upon his arrival in the U.S. on Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight 35 from Riyadh. When questioned, he gave investigators his address as 3159 Row Street, Falls Church, Virginia, which is the address of the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center.

David M. Gaouette

Believing that they were about to take al Awlaki into custody on the felony arrest warrant, investigators were surprised and angered to learn that the arrest warrant was cancelled by David M. Gaouette,  the interim U.S. Attorney for Colorado at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver the day before al Awlaki was scheduled to arrive in New York. This, despite the fact that al Awlaki was on a terror watch list and that Gaouette was fully briefed on Awlaki’s terror ties.  Gaouette has since  been appointed to his present post as the U.S. Attorney in Denver by Attorney General Eric Holder.

Pursuant to instructions from Washington, investigators were forced to let al Awlaki go and apologize to him and his family for the detention. A Saudi representative then escorted al Awlaki and his family to their connecting flight to Washington where he reportedly worked for the Saudi Embassy in addition to having residual ties to the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center.

After a brief stay in the U.S., Anwar al Awlaki was permitted to leave the U.S. without interference. Interestingly, investigators of the 9/11 Commission attempted to locate and interview Anwar al Awlaki in Yemen, but reported that they could not find him.

Al Awlaki surfaced again as the inspiration behind Fort Hood killer Nidal Malik Hassan, the guidance counselor to the attempted Christmas Day airline bomber, the thwarted Times Square bomber, and two “alleged” would-be New Jersey Muslim terrorists arrested in June. Thanks to Saudi influence and shameful pandering to Muslim interests by our leaders in Washington, Anwar al Awlaki remains free in Yemen, acting as a terrorist recruiter soliciting attacks against the citizens of the United States.

Muslim terrorists targetting Western passenger aircraft

17 October 2010: Islamic terrorists are seeking to smuggle SEMTEX, a plastic explosive containing the compounds RDX and PETN, onto Western airlines, according to Arabic language forum discussions posted yesterday.  Based on the data recovered by Archangel, a deep cover operative who has successfully infiltrated such forums, Muslim terrorists are both providing and seeking methods of smuggling the plastic explosive onto commercial aircraft.

Perhaps serving as a dual purpose between motivation and instruction, the terrorists linked to a 19 second video illustrating the dramatic effects of 200 grams of the substance on a Boeing 747 aircraft.  And of course, the Islamic god Allah will be pleased with any such successes, at least according to the participants of this particular forum.

The information has been turned over to the proper federal law enforcement authorities.

Obama administration reports to the UN on human rights issues in U.S.

Takes the fight against Arizona SB 1070 international

By Douglas J. Hagmann

Under the administration of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States submitted its first ever “Universal Periodic Review (UPR) report” to the United Nations.  This is the first time in the history of the United Nations that the U.S. has submitted a report to the United Nation’s Human Rights Council, which is the first step in submitting the United States to international review by some of the most repressive and abusive nations in the world.  The 29-page report can be read here.

The report is the product of about a dozen conferences held across the U.S. between January and April 2010. The participants of these conferences featured such luminaries as  Stephen Rickard and Wendy Patten, from George Soros’ Open Society Institute; Devon Chaffee, Human Rights First; Andrea Prasow, Human Rights Watch; Imad Hamad (a suspected member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Marxist-Leninist terrorist organization), American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee; Dawud Walid, Council American Islamic Relations; Nabih Ayad, Michigan Civil Rights Commission; Ron Scott, Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality; Osama Siblani, Arab American News; Shannon Minter, National Center for Lesbian Rights and Cynthia Soohoo, Center for Reproductive Rights, among others.

According to its authors, the report to the United Nations “gives a partial snapshot of the current human rights situation in the United States, including some of the areas where problems persist in our society.” Obviously, one of the “problems” identified with the report is illegal immigration and Arizona’s own initiate to solve the problem through state legislation. SB 1070 has been a particularly thorny issue to the Obama administration, which has now been moved to an international venue and potential international oversight by the United Nations. The stakes for our national sovereignty have been just raised by the submission of this document, which is the first step of “voluntary compliance” to the provisions of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.

It is no surprise that the report is dripping with the all too familiar “blame America first” rhetoric that has been the gold-standard of “citizen of the world” Barack Hussein Obama. The report promises that “President Obama remains firmly committed to fixing our broken immigration system…” and promises to work “with fellow members of the Human Rights Council.”

Taking counsel from the list of individuals and organizations, some who have openly called for the subjugation of our country to the United Nations and supported our enemies, while engaging in self-flagellation before an international body of dubious distinction… it’s the “gold-standard” of Barack Hussein Obama.

Arizona: A “Revolutionary” line in the sand?

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

3 August 2010: I believe that history will show that the passage of SB 1070 by Arizona, and the federal government’s lawsuit to stop its implementation will be regarded the first battle of the 21st century American Revolution. Although not a single shot was fired- yet, the battle lines have clearly been drawn. Never before in the modern history of our country have all of the elements been in place for a war between our government and the citizenry of the United States. We stand at a proverbial and historic flashpoint as Obama plans to use the foot soldiers created by “comprehensive immigration reform,” whether achieved by law or mandate, to implement his socialist agenda for America.

While the process of transforming the America known by our parents and grandparents to a socialist colony has been in progress for a half-century at the hands of Marxists, Socialists and Progressives, the Obama administration has put the Balkanization of America and the polarization of its citizens along racial, political and ideological lines on the fast track.  And at least for now, he’s got the backing of Congress to advance his agenda of radical change. That was never so evident than on May 20th when the dictator of a corrupt, third world country was given a sickening, treasonous standing ovation in the halls of Congress for attacking the proposed legislation of an American sovereign state to uphold the laws of our country.

Regardless of whatever legislative support he might currently enjoy, evidence has shown that he is actively considering a back door strategy that would circumvent the need for congressional approval. More importantly, it would also circumvent the need for approval from the citizens of the U.S. Once in place, the amnesty of millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. would create a formidable electoral force to keep the Progressives in power under the pretext of free elections. The talk of altruistic motives of immigration and the joys and benefits of multiculturalism is nothing more than a smokescreen for power and control on the path to transforming the United States into a socialist nation.

To understand how we got to this point in our national history, the groundwork for the transformation of our country was laid in 1965 with the passage of the Hart-Celler Act, which was signed into law by then President Lyndon Johnson.  As Mark Levin details in his best-selling book Liberty and Tyranny, that single piece of legislation, as part of the Great Society, laid “the foundation for radically altering the character of American society and the relationship of the governed to their government.” During the debate of the bill on the floor of the Senate, Levin noted that Senator Kennedy insisted that the ethnic mix of the U.S. would not be changed, nor would America be inundated with immigrants from any one country or area.” In his assessment of the debate, Mark Levin wrote “it is hard to believe that they were not intentionally deceiving the public.” Indeed.

That bill caused a significant change in immigration that essentially created the current situation in the U.S. It introduced “chain migration,” which radically altered the “historical basis for making immigration decisions.”  As written by Mr. Levin, “The emphasis would no longer be on the preservation of American society and the consent of the governed; now aliens themselves would decide who comes to the United States through family reunification (emphasis mine). The act also eliminated national quotas for immigration, opening the floodgates for immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America.

Consider that as a result of the 1965 immigration reform and deliberate lack of immigration enforcement, nearly 1 in 3 immigrants living in the U.S. today is here illegally. Additionally, legal immigration increased from 2.5 million in the 1950’s to over 10 million in the 1990’s. In 2007, the immigrant population in the U.S. reached a record 37.9 million and today accounts for 1 in 8 of all U.S. residents. In contrast, immigrants accounted for 1 in 21 of all U.S. residents in 1970.

According to a 2004 report by the Pew Hispanic Center and detailed in Liberty and Tyranny, roughly 9 percent of the population of Mexico resides in the United States. Fifty seven percent of all illegal immigrants are Mexican, and another 24 percent are from other Latin American countries. In less than 40 years, it is estimated that Hispanic school-aged children will comprise the majority of public school students in the U.S.

While many proponents of immigration argue that the immigrants are here to assimilate and contribute to the United States, a 2008 study by the Manhattan Institute determined that the current level of assimilation is at a record low. Perhaps this is most evident by the fact that more than 55 million individuals living in the U.S. speak a language other than English, including over 34 million who speak Spanish. It is evident that assimilation is not a priority. The establishment of ethnic conclaves within the U.S. is an example of the lack of desire to assimilate into the fabric of American society.

In addition to the social and cultural effects of immigration as a whole, illegal immigrants are being aided by our own government in transferring money out of the United States. In 2006, illegal aliens sent an estimated $45 billion from the U.S. to their countries of origin. Last year, thanks to the assistance of the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury, Mexicans alone living and working in the U.S. transferred between $21.9 and $25 billion to the Mexican economy. Under the program called Directo a Mexico, U.S. commercial banks enable illegal aliens to transfer money through the Federal Reserve’s own automated clearinghouse, which is linked to the Mexican central bank Banco de Mexico. The illegal alien is also given an ATM card that can be used in Mexican banks in the event of their deportation.

The outflow of U.S. dollars to Mexico is second only to Mexico’s oil industry in the amount of revenue produced. It should be no wonder, then, that the Mexican government has no interest in working with U.S. authorities to secure our border or to enforce our immigration laws. In fact, it is the ultimate goal of the global elite to erase our borders and implement a “North American Union” as a step to achieving global governance.

Illegal immigration is a big business, and not just for Mexico. It is estimated that $18-25 billion is spent by state governments on welfare programs to illegal aliens each year, and about $2.2 billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs for illegal aliens. And additional $2.5 billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. The drain on the American economy by individuals living illegally in the United States is a significant threat that will lead to our demise.

There should be no doubt that illegal aliens also pose a security risk to our country. First and foremost, they are living and working in this country illegally – contrary to the laws of the United States. And contrary to the Progressive party line, the proponents of multiculturalism, and civil rights and advocacy organizations that subjugate the rights of Americans to their own agendas, crimes committed by illegal aliens are statistically higher than legal immigrants or U.S. citizens. In 2005, the Government Accountability Office released a study it conducted of 55,322 incarcerated illegal aliens. The study population averaged 8 arrests each. Ninety seven percent were arrested more than once, and 26% had over 11 arrests each. Each illegal alien averaged 13 separate offenses and 24% of those offenses were for drug crimes. About 12% were for murder, robbery, assault and sexually related crimes, and 21% of offenses were immigration offenses. Other offenses included property related offenses, traffic violations, fraud and obstruction of justice.

Illegal aliens arrested for less serious crimes and released pending a hearing at a future date often fail to appear. According to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there were 557,762 fugitive alien cases were listed as “unsolved” at the end of 2008.  Furthermore, illegal immigrants with extensive criminal records and multiple deportations are often permitted to remain in the U.S. by activist judges who are sympathetic to their plight.

The rampant problem of illegal immigration can easily be solved not by creating new legislation or enacting a complex system of immigration reform. As we observed in the weeks leading up to the implementation of SB 1070 in Arizona as law, the mere threat of realistic enforcement was sufficient to cause an exodus of illegal aliens from that state. As illustrated by the incoherent ruling of a political hack legislating from the bench, Arizona’s attempt to secure their state was undermined in a crafty and carefully executed political ploy. It is no coincidence that the appeal process will extend beyond the November midterm elections. It is the political hubris of a socialist dictator imposing his agenda against the will of the majority of this country’s citizenry.

The failure to effectively address the issue of illegal immigration is not limited to any one political party; many Republicans as well as a vast majority of Democrats are complicit in failing to secure America’s safety and sovereignty. Consider that the National Council of La Raza, the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the United States, honored Senator John McCain in 1999. During her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton appointed a senior member of La Raza to her staff, and Obama appointed a La Raza leader as the director of the Office of Internal Affairs. Undoubtedly, this virulent pro-amnesty group enjoys a significant influence over public policy in American government. Funding of this group finds numerous foundations and individuals who espouse and promote a global ideology and “one world governance” over national sovereignty as key contributors.

Despite the above statistics, those who demand immigration enforcement and the rule of law are often labeled as racists and xenophobes. American cities and states like Arizona are reeling from the adverse financial and social effects of illegal immigration and unfettered legal immigration. They lack help from the federal government, which is more intent on creating an electoral majority to ensure the continuation of their power to facilitate the socialist makeover and takeover of the United States. Obama and his justice department are siding with criminals against the citizens of America. Arizona is attempting to restore order to a system of chaos created by the federal government. Instead of welcoming the help and choosing to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the Obama administration is imposing a socialist dictatorship and has drawn a line in the Arizona sand. The question is now whether that line becomes “Ground Zero” for this century’s American Revolution – a fight against the Balkanization of our country, and the eradication of our borders, our sovereignty and ultimately, our nation.

As noted by one Arizona Sheriff, “our own government has become our enemy.” The question is how, if and when law-abiding, patriotic American citizens will choose to engage that enemy. For the sake of our country, acceptance and acquiescence is not an option.
