Terrorists’ explosives - out there somewhere

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

As the sun rose over New York Tuesday morning, law enforcement officials were expanding the security corridor around the Brooklyn federal courthouse where terror suspect Najibullah ZAZI was scheduled to be arraigned at 11:00. Police barricaded Tillary Street with their vehicles and stood vigil against any potential threats to the legal proceedings. Meanwhile, news crews were jockeying for position near the building entrance where ZAZI would be led by federal marshals.  Television reporters began filing their live reports on location well before the sun began to rise. Just two blocks away, vehicle and pedestrian traffic moved at a pace normal for a Tuesday morning, most apparently oblivious to the forthcoming arrival of a suspected terrorist. [Read more...]

Islam, Najibullah ZAZI, a frog & a scorpion

Analysis & Editorial by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

“There is no way I can have any connection to this terrorism.”

“I live here. I work here. Why would I have an issue with America?” “This is the only country that gives you freedom - freedom of religion, freedom of choice. You don’t get that elsewhere. Nobody wants to leave America. People die to come here.” -Najibullah ZAZI, now in custody on terrorism charges.

Najibullah ZAZI is a liar. His father, Mohammed ZAZI is a liar. And the Queens mosque leader Ahmad Wais AFZALI is a liar. Considering that their lies obstructed the efforts of authorities during the course of this investigation, these three contemptible specimens of Islam would likely have laughed at the scenes of death, the screams of the injured men, women and children who would have fallen victim to their plans of carnage had they been left unfettered.

Arrests define current Islamic terror threat

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

25 September 2009: In perhaps the most significant ten-day period since 9/11 for domestic counter-terrorism operations, law enforcement officials across the US have made multiple arrests this week of individuals planning to sow death and destruction in the name of Islam. The criminal complaints against those charged provide valuable insight into the thoughts and plans of Islamic terrorists on the streets of America, and most accurately define the current threat facing all of us in the US and Canada today. The documents provide critical insight into the inspirational objectives and operational planning of the Islamic jihad being waged against the West.

The criminal complaints document that among the adherents to fundamentalist Islam, loyalty to Islam supersedes loyalty to the US. They also confirm or serve to illustrate that prison recruitment to Islam, specifically to “jihad” continues unchecked, and there is a disturbing level of covert facilitation to would-be terrorists by Islamic leaders in mosques and Islamic centers across the US.In the case against Michael C. Finton (a/k/a Talib Islam), financial assistance was also provided to the suspect by a “shaykh” living in Saudi Arabia. Although the financial assistance was ostensibly for travel expenses to the Islamic Kingdom so the suspect could marry the “shaykh’s” daughter, the underlying motives should be clear.

The individuals arrested include:

Najibullah ZAZI, a 24 year-old Afghan native and current resident of suburban Denver, for lying to authorities in a terror investigation; Criminal complaint ( PDF file)

Mohammed Wali ZAZI, 53, father of Najibullah and resident of suburban Denver, for lying to authorities in a terror investigation; Criminal complaint (PDF file)

Ahmad Wais AFZALI, 37, the Imam of the Hazrat-I-Abubakr Sadiq mosque in Queens, NY, for lying to authorities in a terror investigation; Link to background article

Hosam Maher Husein SMADI, 19,an illegal alien from Jordan, for planning to detonate a vehicle bomb in Dallas; Criminal Complaint (PDF file)

Michale C. FINTON (a/k/a Talib Islam), recruited to Islam in prison, for attempted murder and using a weapon of mass destruction, for planning to detonate a vehicle bomb at a federal building in Springfield, IL. Criminal Complaint: Fenton, Michael C. (PDF file)

Although the plots of above suspects have been disrupted, others remain free. Some are under surveillance by law enforcement officials, while others are being sought. While many Americans have forgotten the threat posed by Islamic terrorists and have forgotten that they have declared war against the West, the terrorists have not forgotten, and live every day with their evil intentions. Perusal through the criminal complaints linked above verify that.

IL Federal building targeted by Muslim convert

24 September 2009:  Michael C. Finton, (a/k/a Talib Islam) 29, was arrested on charges of attempted murder of federal employees and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with a plot to detonate a vehicle bomb at the federal building in Springfield, Illinois.  If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison. A convert to Islam while serving time in prison, FINTON also expressed interest in the homicidal assaults that killed 166 people in Mumbai, India last year and is an admirer of “American Talban” Johnny Walker Lindh.

None dare call it TREASON

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs Specialist

24 September 2009: Islam and its non-apostate adherents declared war against anything and everything non-Islamic at its inception in the Arabian heartland in 610 AD, fourteen centuries ago. Islam has always been a theology of hate, violence, wanton bloodshed and war. Islam is an equal opportunity hater because its violence is not only directed against those it considers infidels (kafirs) but those who are fellow Muslims. This is plainly evident in every nation on planet earth where Islam asserted itself through military conquest or remains as the dominant force over the past fourteen centuries. This fact is evident within Islam’s colonies in unconquered nations such as these United States.  In no nation on planet earth is Islam a dominant force where violence, wanton bloodshed or wars were not the sole method of achieving that dominance.

It was in the face of these unassailable truths that the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama declared just a few short months ago in the Egyptian and Turkish capitals, “America is not and never will be at war with Islam.”  Have you ever heard a more treasonous statement since September 11, 2001?

An inside look at the NY terror case

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

The current “terror warning” issued by federal authorities is as real as it is dire. It is extremely important that everyone understands the current threat level, how the warnings originated, and to be on the lookout for suspicious activity. There is a real and present danger throughout North America despite the tiresome claims that such warnings are hyper-inflated or are mere distractions to the real news of the day. I will explain, hoping that the following information provides some valuable insight into this precarious situation.

Before doing so, current press reports blaming NYPD, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, or other law enforcement officials for acting too quickly against an Afghan national and his associates must be addressed. Not only are such accusations misplaced, but malicious at their core. If there is any blame to be placed, it must be laid directly at the feet of the Islamic advocacy groups who have launched a crusade of politically correctness against law enforcement, encumbering them under the threat of legal action. It must also be placed at the feet of those government officials who have acquiesced to the very public and well-funded disinformation campaign that asserts that the loyalty of fundamental Muslims is to America rather than to their religious ideology.

The terror case of Najibullah ZAZI is a visible manifestation of such inane governmental policy and is a suitable illustration of the fruits of governmental acquiescence to Islam. [Read more...]

New audio message from Osama bin Laden

13 September 2009: A new audio message purportedly from al Qaeda terror kingpin Osama bin Laden was obtained from an Islamic terrorist web site late Sunday. The as- Sahab branded audio message, titled “[A statement] To the American people”  is approximately 11 minutes long and features the alleged voice of bin Laden warning the U.S. about continued ties with Israel and general criticism of U.S. policy. The audio message also cites Barack Hussein Obama’s speech made in Cairo, Egypt last June, noting that U.S. policy in Afghanistan and Iraq has not changed under Obama due, in part, to his retention of key military officials.

Gitmo glamor glitz reaches terrorist web sites

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

Exactly eight years after the attacks of 9/11, photographs of the key operational field planner and self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed have “gone viral” on numerous terrorist web sites. Most Americans only know this diabolical terrorist kingpin through the images of his 2003 capture - the disheveled doppelganger of porn star Ron Jeremy. Now, thanks in part to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), members of the terrorist’s family, and complete capitulation to a mindset that virtually no American would have had just 8 years-ago tomorrow, new life has been given to the al Qaeda terrorist commonly referenced as “KSM” and the al Qaeda terrorist network.

Is Russia setting the stage for a nuclear apocalypse? [Part II]

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director, & Sean Osborne, Military Affairs Specialist

Part I of this article

Preface

Our investigation into the Arctic Sea incident has taken some unexpected and incredibly complex twists and turns, uncovering information far beyond anything reported in the media or by officials speaking publicly about this incident. To be certain, raw clarity of the event is deliberately elusive and layers of secrecy shrouding the Arctic Sea are being constructed faster than they can be removed. Some who have attempted to shed light on this mystery by investigating the official Russian line have been threatened or forced to flee for their lives, such as Mikhail Voitenko, the editor of Sovfracht, an online maritime journal.

Ship & crew reportedly recovered but questions remain

18 August 2009: Three weeks after it “went missing,” the cargo vessel Arctic Sea, pictured above, was reportedly recovered and its 15-man crew safe. The Maltese-owned ship was found yesterday about 300 miles from the Cape Verde islands. The ship’s cargo reportedly consists of about $1 million in lumber that was bound for Algeria, but never made it to that destination. Instead, the vessel was reportedly boarded by a dozen men on or about 24 July, just one day after leaving a port in Finland.

For the next 3 weeks, the ship supposedly managed to elude radar and satellite tracking. Reports of piracy, ransom demands, and other mysteries captured overseas’ headlines during the ship’s disappearance, but the only thing that is certain is that nothing about this incident is certain.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is investigating reports that the ship held “unofficial” cargo - something perhaps of a very deadly nature. Additional information concerning this matter of will be published as it is verified by international intelligence sources.
