The Lodi, California “Terror Cell”

al Qaeda Terrorists Arrested in California

Affadavit: “Hamid advised that he specifically requested to come to the United States to carry out his jihadi mission.” “Potential targets for attack would include hospitals and large food stores.”

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

8 June 2005: Lodi: Federal agents have broken up an al Qaeda terrorist cell operating in the San Joaquin County city of Lodi, California, about 40 miles south of Sacramento. Agents of the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Hamid Hayat, 22, and his father Umer Hayat, 47, a Lodi ice cream truck driver on Sunday. The arrests took place less than a week after the younger Hayat was found aboard a San Francisco-bound plane even though his name appeared on a no-fly list of suspected Islamic terrorist operatives.

Hamid Hayat admitted attending al Qaeda training camps in Pakistan in 2003 and 2004 to learn “how to kill Americans.” He was trained to use explosives and weapons, and practiced by using photographs of President Bush and other high-profile U.S. political figures as targets, according to court documents.

Hamid Hayat originally lied to FBI agents about whether he had received training, had his pick of where to carry out a terrorist attack, which potentially could have targeted hospitals and large food stores. Meanwhile, the task force arrested Hayat’s father, Umer Hayat on charges that he lied about his son’s involvement and his own financing of the terror camp and his son’s attendance, where he reportedly paid $100 each month to his son. Both suspects are currently being held in Sacramento County Jail.

Two More Arrested on Immigration Violations

Federal authorities also arrested Muhammed Adil Khan and Shabbir Ahmed on immigration violations and are being questioned about their role in potential terror plans in the U.S., the Northeast Intelligence Network has learned. Shabbir Ahmed was Imam of the Lodi Mosque, and Khan was a former imam who is leading efforts to build the Farooqia Islamic Center, including a school for children up to fourth grade.

FBI agents searched Ahmed’s poplar Street residence, located next door to the mosque, and another house on the 300 block of Acacia Street, about four blocks from the mosque. Both men were arrested after meeting separately with Umer Hayat on Saturday.

Interestingly, in the days following the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Islamic leader Khan condemned the attacks. Several months later, Khan joined the leaders of local Christian churches and a synagogue to issue a Declaration of Peace condemning terrorism and stressing the common origins of each religion. It is for this very reason that all Americans should become familiar with the Islamic term Taqqiyaa, which is the Islamic doctrine of deception of non-Muslims as permitted by the Qu’ran.

Lodi Arrests: Template For Terrorist Cells Across America

9 June 2005: Lodi: From the terrorist training camps in Pakistan to the mosques in America, we are engaged in war of deception. That “war of deception” is being waged on us as the recent arrests in Lodi illustrate. As heard the The Pat Campbell Show this morning, agency director Doug Hagmann noted that the very same Islamic Imams who vociferously “condemned” the 9/11 attacks are embroiled in the alleged training of Islamic terrorist operatives planning to use their skills to kill us here in America. This is a perfect example of the contemptuous intolerance of Islam again all other faiths, and the deceit permitted by the Islamic Qu’ran and Hadith when justified in “fighting the enemy.”

Muhammed Adil Khan, pictured above, led efforts to build the Farooqia Islamic Center, including an Islamic a school for young children. He also joined the leaders of local Christian churches and a synagogue to issue a “Declaration of Peace” condemning terrorism and stressing the common origins of each religion. Yet, that same Imam is alleged to be among up to a dozen others in the same group or “cell” involved in providing material support to potential terrorist operatives inside the U.S.

We are being provided with ample warning signs about the intentions of Islamic militants in the U.S. who live and work among us. According to law enforcement sources close to the Lodi investigation, there will be additional detentions and possible arrests. But the story does not stop there. The Lodi case is a virtual template of Islamic groups across the country, feigning religious tolerance while actively engaged in Al-Takeyya, which permits Muslims to engage in lies and deceit to further their cause of Jihad. (The basis for this practice can be found in the Quranic verse Surah 3:28). The question is will we recognize this practice and become proactive before it is too late?

Don’t be fooled - what is happening in Lodi is also happening in small town and large cities across the U.S.

Lying in Lodi: Key Witness in Trial Declines to Testify

29 November 2005: Safdar AFZAL, a “key witness” in a federal terrorism investigation relating to Lodi residents Hamid Hayat, 23, and his father Umer Hayat, 47, invoked his right to avoid self-incrimination at a bail hearing for the suspects who are currently incarcerated on terrorism related charges.

AFZAL reportedly made statements to federal investigators that were inconsistent with his court testimony on Monday, and consequently opted not to provide further testimony at the risk of facing charges of lying to investigators. AFZAL is one of three men - all owners of real estate in San Joaquin Valley - who intended to use their real estate holdings to satisfy the $1.2 million bond placed on the elder Hayat to insure that he appears for trial.

Possible Surface-to-Air Missile Attempt Against Passenger Aircraft in U.S.?

Subject: American Airlines Flight 612

Date: 26 November 2005

Incident: Pilot reported seeing rocket or missile just missing aircraft.

OVERVIEW: In the early hours on Monday, November 28, 2005, ABC Radio News (syndicated) ran a broadcast about the pilot of a passenger airplane departing LAX en route to Chicago reporting that a missile had been fired at the aircraft (but missed). The pilot reported that he saw a smoke trail pass by the cockpit. Just as suddenly as the story was broadcast, it seemed to have disappeared from the media.

The following is an outline of the incident, the response by the media and “explanations” by federal authorities. It remains a story that continues to be investigated by the Northeast Intelligence Network.

Passenger Aircraft from LAX Possible Target of Missile?
(The Curiously Vanishing News Story)By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

28 November 2005: Under normal circumstances and in a perfect world, a possible “missile attack” against a commercial flight in the early morning hours after a holiday weekend would be a news story. A BIG NEWS story. Sadly, today’s climate does not demand comprehensive reporting, and even on rare occasions when it does, no one seems to want to ask the “hard questions” anymore. Investigative reporting has taken a backseat to mere acceptance of inane explanations by official spokesmen who seem to know they won’t have to be held accountable for their answers. Many in the American public seem to acquiesce, refuse to believe that the war on terror has reached America, or as radio personality and regular guest on Fox & Friends MANCOW said to me during a recent interview about the bombing at O.U., “I don’t want to hear it.” The latter, of course, was an apparent parody of the malaise of the public, making the point that many people simply don’t want to hear what is really going on as long as their world is not directly affected.

That said, there is a “news story” that was broadcast on a few radio stations early this morning that detailed an alleged incident of a U.S. passenger plane departing from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), enroute to the east coast, that (reportedly) “narrowly avoided being hit by a missile.” The altitude of the flight at the time of the alleged incident was 6,000 feet and over the Pacific Ocean in a turn-and-climb pattern. According to news reports broadcast early this morning, officials dismissed this incident, even chalking the sighting up to a “flare” or a “bottle rocket,” despite the obvious impossibility of either scenario. Interestingly, the details of the story remained vague until they apparently vanished from the media.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is continuing to investigate this incident - hoping to obtain some type of “official” confirmation. In the meantime, rest assured that everything is normal in the world today, and let us know where we can get some of those “bottle-rockets on steroids” for the next July 4th holiday picnic.

RADAR IMAGES OF AA FLT 6129 December 2005: Radar images, supplied by T. A. Adams show anomalous event on 26 November 2005 involving AA Flight 612 shortly after takeoff. The Northeast Intelligence Network requested a commercial airline pilot to review the images of the radar activity as it related to AA Flight 612 on 26 November 2005. Earlier today, the pilot, currently flying for a well-known national carrier, confirmed that the event was unusual and “could be consistent with the pilot’s observations of a missile or rocket eclipsing and missing Flight 612.” He added:

“Based on what I reviewed, the unidentified object was not a bottle rocket or flare, but was absolutely consistent with some type of missile possibly aimed at the aircraft.”

Please be patient: Due to the large file sizes of the images, these images will take a while to fully load.

Radar Image 1: Description: In this image, at 12:51.24, FLT AA612 (the red plane) is shown over Santa Monica Bay at 4700 Feet and climbing.

Radar Image 2: Description: 20 Seconds later, AA612 suddenly appears to split into two aircraft at 6200 feet at 12:51.07 While running this program, if you click on either of the “aircraft” on this radar they both read AA612 meaning they are flying on exactly the same course and the radar cannot discern between the two.

Clicking the new one though (now the red aircraft) lets you see that this so-called “bottle rocket” or “flare” reached an altitude of 1500 feet in 2 seconds at 12:52.04. At 12:52:04, the images split and are clearly two separate objects.

Radar Image 3: Description: Just as suddenly as the second image appeared, it then disappears when Flt AA612 reaches an altitude of 8100 feet at 12:52.54 (Not shown).

Passenger Air Travel - At Risk From Missiles?9 December 2005: As we approach the busiest air travel season of the year, there appears to be a “growing private concern” over the safety of air travel, especially in the wake of a surface-to-air missile reported by the pilot of a passenger aircraft departing LAX the day after Thanksgiving. Federal officials have attempted to explain that a plume of smoke passing by the cockpit of a passenger jet traveling over the Santa Monica Bay at approximately 5,000 feet was “a flare or bottle rocket,” and definitely not any form of missile. In fact, “rumor control” is already in progress on a variety of levels to avoid alerting the public to any potential threats to our airlines as we enter into the busy Christmas travel season.

Despite the denials of this incident, the Northeast Intelligence Network has received first-hand accounts of incidents that relate to possible surface to air missiles, including a possible “practice run” involving boats in the Santa Monica Bay just days before the flight from LAX:

From a witness:

“On Tuesday night, November 22nd, 2005 around 9:00 PM, I was standing at the very end of the pier looking out directly west, when I noticed something unusual. A small speed boat with headlights on was zipping by at a very high rate of speed from the Santa Monica area southward about a 1/4 mile west of the pier. As it came directly in front of the Venice pier the boat (still 1/4 mile out) stopped suddenly and turned off its lights. Then a couple minutes later the lights came back on and the boat proceeded very slowly southward toward the Marina Del Rey area, while staying about the same distance out to sea. When the boat came within proximity to the LAX departure zone it stopped, and the boats lights extinguished.”

“I kept watching to see what was happening. About a minute later, I noticed off further to the south and west there was another boat and it flashed its lights, as if it was signaling the first boat. The first boat then flashed it lights. Then even further south, I noticed there was a THIRD boat. That boat flashed a green light a couple times. It almost looked like the 3 boats were setting up a triangulation and it made me a little suspicious because 9:00 PM seems to be a peak time for aircraft take off at LAX.”

“My immediate thought was- what if these were terrorists setting up for a boat missile launch attack on a plane? After watching for about 15 to 20 more minutes, nothing happened and the boats didn’t light up or move, so I went back home. I seriously contemplated contacting the authorities about the boats- but didn’t because… I didn’t want to be seen as an “alarmist.” But when I heard your report last night [on Coast to Coast AM] from Douglas Hagmann, I was in my car and nearly drove off the freeway!”

“Also, this past Tuesday and Wednesday evenings the Los Angeles County Life Guards at Santa Monica & Marina Del Rey, and the Santa Monica Harbor patrol conducted a major plane crash drill in the Santa Monica Bay.”

NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT

Yet another report - this time from a pilot - indicates that this is no isolated incident:

“I am an airplane mechanic for a major U.S. carrier with over 35 years of service and work as the shift supervisor at a major hub on the east coast. On September 15, 2005 at approximately 8:00 PM, I was listening to the company radio on the frequency that our pilots talk to the company dispatchers when I heard the following dialog between one of our pilots and the dispatcher:”

PILOT: “I just heard an America West crew report that they had been ‘just missed’ by a surface to air missile.”

DISPATCHER: “I’ll check and get back to you.”

The pilot adds: “This is first hand from me, not hearsay, and I know what I heard and that it is correct. Although I am unsure of the approximate location of the airplane at the time of the incident, I am reasonably certain that it was east of the Mississippi and very probably in the northeast section of the country.”

“I told a few other people about what I heard over the radio, but after time, you get tired of the crazy looks and ridicule, and just want keep your mouth shut.”

MANPADS (SHOULDER-FIRED MISSILES): HOW SERIOUS IS THE THREAT?30 November 2005: In the wake of a possible MANPAD incident allegedly involving a U.S. passenger aircraft (above story), and the charges against two Los Angeles area men of Chinese origin accused of conspiring to import shoulder-fired missiles, the Northeast Intelligence Network is investigating the threats facing our airlines, and is continuing to track down information pertaining to the incident that was broadcast on ABC Radio News early Monday morning, only to be removed from the airwaves shortly after the initial broadcast. Analyst and military affairs expert Sean Osborne reported on the threats from shoulder-fired missiles over the last several months. In an interestingly timed release, the U.S. Department of State last week issued a fact sheet and pertinent data concerning the threat from shoulder-fired missiles. The actual fact sheet was dated 20 September 2005.

Our Unambiguous Thanksgiving Message to America

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director &  Military Affairs Analyst

It is said that if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. And so it would appear on this Thanksgiving Day 2005 that too many Americans have forgotten what made America the greatest nation on earth. The following is the official proclamation of the first President of the United States, given at the request of both Houses of the Congress of the United States, which states that Thanksgiving Day is THE day set aside on which all Americans are to thank God Almighty for his blessings upon this nation, our constitutional government, upon all of us and all other nations of this world: [img align=left]http://www.homelandsecurityus.com/images/washington.jpg[/img]Whereas it is the duty of  all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal  favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and ration al manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general , for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And al so that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He al one knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York , the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.

There you have it, the first official “Thanksgiving” proclamation. Note that our first President and Commander-In-Chief invoked the name of God 13 times in the 4 sentences of this proclamation. That certainly leaves very little doubt about the nature of his proclamation, doesn’t it? What would our founding fathers think of some Americans today?

Amen if a few of ‘em are rolling over in agony right now. And Amen for the rest of us.

If you have read this far, then you might be interested in: THE FIRST official presidential proclamation ever issued in the United States of America.

I extend my warmest Happy Thanksgiving wishes to you all, to our Armed Forces and to our  allies in this time of war. [Editor's Note: As does the entire staff of the Northeast Intelligence Network].

Pro-Football Game Erupts During Muslim Prayer Service at Giants Stadium

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

2 November 2005: It was the middle of the first quarter in a game between the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints at the Meadowlands on September 19, 2005 when five Arab Muslim men found a location near a concrete pillar and prostrated themselves on the ground as part of their daily Muslim prayer ritual, startling a number of fans in attendance who considered their behavior as “suspicious.”

Following their entry into the stadium, the five found an open space near the concrete pillars by walkways and escalators at Gate D and began to pray amid the first quarter. Other fans notified stadium security officers who visually identified them and watched as they walked to their seats. During the third quarter, security personnel asked the men to accompany them to a quieter location within the stadium where they were questioned and later permitted to return to the game. Some eyewitness accounts suggest that at least one of the men possessed camera equipment and was observed taking photos of various parts of the stadium.

In an interesting coincidence, FBI agents were present at that game because former President Bush (once the target for assassination by Islamic terrorists) was present to promote fundraising efforts he and former President Clinton had launched to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. The game was originally scheduled for New Orleans, but was switched to Giants Stadium because of the hurricane damage.

Although allowed to return to the game, the five men were so angered by being “profiled” that they instead opted to leave the stadium and ultimately, retain a lawyer. Sohail Mohammed, a lawyer for one of the men, stated: “This is a classic example of “if you want to pray, you’ll have to pay.” These folks were exercising their fundamental right to practice their faith, and they wanted to enjoy, as Americans, their favorite sport.”

Although one of the men expressed fears of being harassed by the incident, those concerns must have abated as the five Islamic men plan to detail their experiences at a news conference Wednesday in New York “designed to foster greater understanding of Islam and the religious practices of Muslims.”

The New York Giants won over the Saints, 27-10.
