The Iraq Study Group: A HUMINT-based Assessment

by Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Senior Analyst, Military Affairs

28 November 2006: In the Middle East, in Europe, in Asia and in the Western Hemisphere the perception is emanating from the various political, military and religious leaders that no nation is capable of stopping Iran from becoming a nuclear armed state. Particularly in the Middle East is the expressed fear of a devastating war looming on the horizon, possibly within just a few short months. Wars and rumors of wars. Where do these perceptions originate and upon what are they based?

Hey, Did You Hear The One About The Six Imams?

By Randy Taylor Independent Analyst

28 November 2006: The first Iman says to his buddies “Lets book a flight on an American passenger flight”. The second Iman says “We should act suspicious since people in America are so scared of Middle Eastern men after 9/11″. The third Iman says “I’ll bring some of our favorite prayers to recite in Arabic to get the other passengers upset”. The fourth Iman says “I’ll call CAIR and let them know what we are doing so they can claim racial discrimination and profiling against Muslims afterwards”. The fifth Iman says “I’ll signal all of you so we can stand up prior to, and during, the take-off roll and act really suspicious”.

UPDATE to U.S. AIR Flight 300: “ISLAMOPHOBIA IS A WEAPON OF JIHAD”

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director
director@homelandsecurityus.com

21 November 2006: Following the attacks on America on 9/11 by Islamic terrorists, [b]Islamic jihad[/b] has taken on various forms, not the least of which is IDEOLOGICAL JIHAD - a vital tactic of the asymmetrical warfare that is being waged against the United States and all throughout the West.

The response to the perceived threat aboard flight 300 by Muslim leaders is a clear example of the manifestation of ideological jihad, a troubling tactic used by Muslim leaders to shift people’s focus away from the actions of Islamic terrorists and make them fear a lawsuit nearly as much as possible terrorist activity. A working example of this strategy in progress can be seen in the public reaction and comments of those talking about the events that have taken place aboard U.S. Air Flight 300. Mark my words – U.S. Air flight 300 will become a “water shed event” in the history of Islamic Jihad in the United States.

“I never felt bad in my life like that, I never. Six imams. Six leaders in this country. Six scholars in handcuffs. It’s terrible.”  “They took us off the plane, humiliated us in a very disrespectful way,” -Omar Shahin, of Phoenix.

“CAIR will be filing a complaint with relevant authorities in the morning over the treatment of the imams to determine whether the incident was caused by anti-Muslim hysteria by the passengers and/or the airline crew.” Because, unfortunately, this is a growing problem of singling out Muslims or people perceived to be Muslims at airports, and it’s one that we’ve been addressing for some time.” -Ibrihim Hooper (Council on American Islamic Relations).

Suspicious activity of 6 Middle Eastern men causes delay, removal from plane

“Don’t think for one minute that this might not be a ‘test run’ of sorts, but not the kind you think. It could well be more attempts to disarm our security apparatus through the legal system, with CAIR at the helm. Presuming that no threats to our national security was found among these men, expect them to file suit in federal court, making an issue of profiling. This is what the PC crowd has given to us here in America.” –Douglas J. Hagmann, Director (from 11/20/2006 PODCAST)

20 November 2006: Six men of Middle Eastern ethnicity were removed from an airplane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport earlier this evening. Officials said that a passenger aboard the plane notified the flight crew of their behavior via a note passed to a flight attendant. According to witnesses, the men were acting in a manner that caused the passengers and flight crew to be concerned about their intentions. The six men, on board U.S. Airways Flight 300 scheduled to fly from Minneapolis to Phoenix, refused to deplane when requested by the flight crew. They were ultimately taken off the plane after it returned to the gate and are being questioned by authorities. The flight, scheduled to depart the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 5:15 p.m. CT, left at 8:19 p.m. without further incident. Our investigation is continuing.

Happy Holidays Infidel

By Randy Taylor Independent Analyst
rtaylor@homelandsecurityus.com

18 November 2006: As the holiday season approaches we must keep in the back of our minds that the terrorists may indeed attack targets in Europe and possibly within the United States. This information is based on recent intelligence collected and the opinions of some within the offices charged with protecting us. Nothing hard as of yet, but a higher possibility than in recent holiday seasons simply because of the way things are shaping up around the world.

The Mujahideen‘s harvest report

October propaganda report directed to Western viewers to influence opinions of the West, U.S.  in wake of mid-term elections.

By Randy Taylor, Independent Analyst
rtaylor@homelandsecurityus.com

17 November 2006: It is interesting to observe the methods employed by the various Islamic terrorist groups in Iraq and watch as they work the sentiments and opinions of Westerners.

The Mujahideen Shura Council is an umbrella organization of a number of different Islamic terrorist groups active in Iraq, attacking U.S. and coalition forces. For some time, they have been issuing monthly printed reports in Arabic about their “successes” against U.S. forces. Almost without exception, these reports are pure Islamic propaganda and issued to rally the terrorists fighting in the Iraqi theater. The statistics they provide are usually inflated and frequently used by other terrorist groups and once translated, are often cited by anti-war, anti-U.S. groups to sway public opinion.  For their October report, they made it easier to attract Western sympathizers. (The same video is also available in Arabic).

The most recent report was issued in a 59-second video format in English, which suggests that this report is being directed to viewers in the West instead of those fighting in Iraq.

Bio of Iranian Terrorist-in-Chief

…Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (by the thug himself)

“As outlined by the Northeast Intelligence Network in July 2005, there should be NO doubt about current Iranian President  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s role in the November 4, 1979 U.S. Embaassy takeover. There should be little doubt that U.S. intelligence officials knew of his role as well.” — Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director
director@homelandsecurityus.com

14 November 2006: Following the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President of Iran in 2005, I had the opportunity to speak with one of the 52 Americans who was held hostage for 444 days at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. My conversation with this individual left no doubt whatsoever that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was one of the “architects” of that assault on America and her citizens. There was also little doubt that our current administration was also painfully aware of Ahmadinejad’s role in the embassy takeover following his rise to power as the President of Iran.

Based on yesterday’s article by World NetDaily, it appears that U.S. officials are denying any knowledge that the Islamic fascist played a role in the November 4, 1979 attacks against America. The denials also follow the expose by the Northeast Intelligence Network of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s own admissions and statements in his Farsi-language website, where he provided a nice outline of his roles in that incident as well as his stint as a torturer with Iran’s infamous Revolutionary Guard.

For those who missed our biographical expose that we published on July 1, 2005, here it is again:

1 July 2005: Is the president-elect of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, one of the hostage-takers at the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979? The Northeast Intelligence Network called upon its Farsi-language resources to help determine the answer to this question. Sure enough, the answer is readily found on the official website of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, written entirely in Farsi, and complete with images. The website includes various documents from Ahmadinegad’s campaign where he claims “I Can Control the Americans - I Have Experience Doing It.” In one particularly disturbing document, he claims that if elected, he will “bring the death that the Shi’ite are experiencing in Iraq to the streets of America with the volunteer martyr brigades that are ready to act.”

Ahmadinegad claims that under his leadership “America will not stop Iran from its uranium programs. Iran has a right to defend itself against the Zionist sons of pigs and apes.” He says that he “knows how to control the US and will do so when the time is right.”

The website in fact boasts of his involvement in the Embassy takeover, even posting photographs of Ahmadinegad and his fellow students. The website claims that this photograph was taken inside the US Embassy in Tehran in 1980.

The official biography on Ahmadinejad’s website leaves little doubt as to his involvement in the 1979 embassy takeover:

  • Born in Garmsar, east of Tehran in 1956;
  • 4th child of 7;
  • Working class family;
  • Father was a blacksmith;
  • Family moved to south Tehran in 1957;
  • Graduated high school;
  • Enrolled Elm-o Sanaat University 1975 studying engineering;
  • Became leave of student activist group at Elm-o Sanaat University;
  • Founded the Islamic Students Association at Elm-o Sanaat shortly after fall of shah;
  • 1979: became representative from Elm-o Sanaat at the Office of Strengthening Unity between Students and Theological Seminaries (OSU) (OSU set up by Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti, top confidant to Ayatullah Khomeini;
  • Ahmadinejad and other members of OSU central councilincluding Ibrahim Asgharzadeh, Mohsen Mirdamadi, Mohsen Kadivar, Mohsen Aghajari, and Abbas Abdi regularly met with Khomeini;
  • Mirdamadi and Abdi suggested to OSU that US embassy be stormed. Ahmadinejad recommended storming the Soviet embassy at the same time;
  • During 1980 “Islamic Cultural Revolution” Ahmadinejad and the OSU assisted in purging dissident lecturers and students - many arrested and later executed.
  • 1980:- Ahmadinejad joined Revolutionary Guards;
  • 1980(s):, Ahmadinejad employed as interrogator and torturer the Internal Security department of Revolutionary Guard.

Iran government website Baztab, claims Ahmadinejad worked as an executioner in the notorious Evin Prison.

*1986: became senior officer in Special Brigade. Revolutionary Guard, at Ramazan Garrison (Ramazan Garrison was the headquarters of the Revolutionary Guards’ “extra-territorial operations”, a euphemism for terrorist attacks beyond Iran’s borders).

*Governor, Maku and Khoy (towns in NW Iran):

-1993 appointed governor of Ardebil Province

-1997 return to Elm-o Sanaat University to teach and organize Ansar el
Hezbollah

-2003 became major of Tehran; founded Abadgaran-e Iran-e Islami party

An opposition website claims the following:

In Kermanshah, Ahmadinejad became involved in the clerical regime’s terrorist operations abroad and led many “extra-territorial operations of the IRGC”. With the formation of the elite Qods (Jerusalem) Force of the IRGC, Ahmadinejad became one of its senior commanders. He was the mastermind of a series of assassinations in the Middle East and Europe, including the assassination of Iranian Kurdish leader Abdorrahman Qassemlou, who was shot dead by senior officers of the Revolutionary Guards in a Vienna flat in July 1989. Ahmadinejad was a key planner of the attack, according to sources in the Revolutionary Guards.

Of course, if you have doubts you can always contact him directly. The contact page on his website at http://mardomyar.com/aspx/contactme.asp lists his email address as: drahmadinejad@gmail.com

Rep-Elect Keith Ellison, Useful Idiot or Islamist Agent?

By Randy Taylor, Independent Analyst

How did it come to be that an apparent radical Islamist is elected to the House of the People with the support of a group with proven ties to Islamic terrorism? (Link) Anti-CAIR

14 November 2006: Rep-Elect Keith Ellison was elected to the House of Representatives from the state of Minnesota.  He has the strong backing and financial support of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Washington-DC based Islamic hate group that is dedicated to ending Constitutional rule of law in the United States.

Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) has written about Ellison previously.  Ellison has the strong support of CAIR; accepted donations from senior CAIR staffers and has a past involving the revolting Nation Of Islam (NOI) that he has not adequately explained.  (When one is an adult working for the NOI, simply explaining it away as a “mistake” just isn’t good enough.)
