Amateur intelligence delivery methods by web sleuths, not White House, responsible for intelligence “snafu”

White House may be responsible for a lot of things, but not this…

10 October 2007: The “al Qaeda video leak” causing so much consternation in intelligence circles is not only shameful, but is being used to cast a good deal of blame where it does not belong - at the White House. At issue is the Osama bin Laden video of September 6 or September 7, 2007; the details of which are well summarized in an article by the Washington Post here.

In fact, investigators with the Northeast Intelligence Network watched this series of events unfold, after one well respected and long-time researcher and contributor to this agency had already properly secured and provided the bin Laden video information to the appropriate contacts at the appropriate government intelligence levels. Therefore, having “no dog in this fight,” the Northeast Intelligence Network can objectively offer insight into this intelligence morass with unsurprising findings. This isn’t designed as a finger pointing or blame assignment session, but instead perhaps a stimulant or suggestion for some in the privatized intelligence industry to review the order of their priorities involved in this War against Islamic terrorism, with the highest priority as being human lives.

The stories circulating around this most unprofessional folly shows that some within the cottage industry of web sleuths suddenly turned intelligence professionals created by the 9/11 attacks include individuals and entities who are more concerned with fame and “credit” than the safety and security of our country. And when the priorities of these people become so twisted, with their rush to media fame so pervasive, it is just a matter of time before such an incident causes problems for those individuals and organizations who continuously provide sensitive data to intelligence officials without EVER talking to the press or expecting “credit” for their intelligence finds.

Simply put, there is a correct way that the intelligence industry works - thus critical in order for it to work effectively. The bottom line is that if you have intelligence for dissemination, you are responsible for the controlled dissemination of the same at your control level. An “open to all” intelligence buffet on a supposedly secured server is out of the ordinary, by any professional standard. If you didn’t secure the data then you shouldn’t be surprised at the identities of the recipients of said data.

Now, the non-existent “leaks” have turned some White House officials into impromptu plumbers, as detailed in today’s edition of the Washington Post. Most assuredly, they have much better things to do, but must now reconstruct the events surrounding this issue because of the need for some to seek the media spotlight at any cost, despite the serious nature of the mission.

Although our agency provides reports on the very events we reference, it is only after a very specific vetting process is completed, with those who are responsible for the security of our nation. Oftentimes, we here at the Northeast Intelligence Network do not publish our intelligence data in its purest form at the request of our government contacts or simply due to sound judgment. This is typical in both the investigative and intelligence industry, and is done to avoid compromising the investigation and surveillance of a source Internet portal, or site. Nonetheless, we manage to get the information to our readers without causing the enemy source to “go dark.” After all, it’s much easier to watch and observe, than to chase a source underground and attempt to find that source again (Surveillance 101).

That procedure notwithstanding, our analysts, researchers and investigators conduct our independent analysis and investigations, answering to no one, only after the initial information has been properly placed in the hands of government officials. In taking this extra step - a step that requires little effort or causes little delay, our process assures that no one breaks a limb running to the media to be the “first” to break a story.

As true American patriots with our priorities in order, we at Northeast Intelligence Network are not committed to selling subscriptions and garnering web visitors if the real price for these things can cause an intelligence breakdown or has the potential to jeopardize ongoing investigations and compromise an intelligence portal into the enemy camp. We simply do not believe that our fellow American’s lives have such a small price tag.

Sick supporters of a Muslim cop killer

Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

8 October 2007: On April 12, 1991, officer Bruno D. Soboleski, a sergeant with the Houston Police Department, was shot twice in the chest and once in the abdomen during a narcotics investigation on 7 April 1991. He died 5 days later - on 12 April 1991. Although we lost touch before his death, he was still a great friend. Bruno left behind a young wife and two young daughters. Because of Bruno, there is a lot I understand about what it’s like to be a cop, and unfortunately, a lot I understand about being a cop who is killed in the line of duty. What I don’t understand is how anyone can side with someone who murders a police officer in the line of duty.

Ten years earlier, in the early hours of December 9, 1981, Philadelphia Police officer Daniel Faulkner was shot and killed during a traffic stop by radical Muslim convert Mumia Abu Jamal. The details surrounding the murder of officer Faulkner are particularly heinous. Ultimately, officer Faulkner stopped a car driven by Mumia Abu Jamal’s brother William Cook. During the traffic stop, Cook assaulted Faulkner, during which Abu Jamal emerged from a nearby parking lot and shot Faulkner in the back. Faulkner returned fire and seriously wounded Abu-Jamal, but not before Abu Jamal advanced on Faulkner and shot the officer at close range, including the fatal shot to the officer’s face.

Due to his injuries, Abu Jamal was unable to flee, and was taken into custody by other police officers called by Faulkner before his death. The amount of physical evidence against Mumia Abu Jamal, proving his guilt, is staggering. Nonetheless, Mumia Abu Jamal has gained celebrity status since he was found guilty and sentenced to death. Meanwhile, the following big name companies and celebrities have been actively supporting Abu Jamal. The The F.O.P. has just announced the formal boycotting of the following:

1. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Products (donators to a defense fund for the killer).

2. Actor Paul Newman, and his products (an outspoken supporter of the killer).

3. Actress Susan Sarandon (supporter of this convicted killer).

4. Filmmakers Spike Lee, Oliver Stone and John Landis (supporters of the killer).

5. Writers Norman Mailer and Joyce Carol Oates (supporters of the killer).

6. Super model Naomi Campbell (supporter of the killer).

7. Musicians Sting, David Byrne and Michael Stipe of REM, (all (supporters of the killer).

8. The Backstreet Boys who are performing “free” benefit concerts for the killer’s defense fund.

(As a side note, one of their “benefit concerts” scheduled for Baltimore , MD had to be canceled when Baltimore police officers refused to work the overtime shifts for site security at the concert).

Convicted death row killer allowed to speak at college commencements

As if there is not enough insanity with respect to speakers at college and universities, a tape recorded statement made by this heinous convicted killer, was played at the 1999 spring graduation commencement ceremony at Evergreen State College in the state of Washington. This resulted in over 800 graduates walking out and another two dozen turning their backs during the killer’s three minute diatribe of hate.

Muslim inmate sues jail over food

8 October 2007: A Muslim inmate is suing a southwest Missouri jail, claiming the facility’s administrators violated his religious rights by feeding him sandwiches with a pork product concealed in them.

Odell M. Edwards, who as a Muslim is not allowed to eat pork, filed his lawsuit against the Greene County Justice Center this past week in U.S. District Court in Springfield. Jail officials maintain that the jelly is made with fruit pectin extracted from plants. Pectin is a natural substance that thickens jams and jellies.


Administrative follies - still rubbing elbows with Islamists

5 October 2007: From The Washington Times: “White House Ramadan is so much better than bingo. In 2003 and 2004, Mr. Bush asked Faizul Khan, who is affiliated with the Saudi-funded Islamic Center of Washington and serves on the board of directors of the Islamic Society of North America, to give the blessing. This year, the Justice Department officially labeled Islamic Society as a U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, the movement aiming to establish a global Islamic empire, and also as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas fund-raising Holy Land Foundation trial still awaiting a verdict in Dallas.”

Feds: Chicago train derailments, track sabotage “unrelated”

5 October 2007: Trains are a favorite target for Islamic terrorists. It was just three years ago that Islamic terrorists detonated bombs on trains in Madrid, Spain, killing 191 people and injuring nearly 2,000 others. In fact, there have been over 200 incidents of Islamic terrorist attacks on trains, train tracks and rail facilities within the last ten years -  although these reports rarely secure the public interest they deserve in the media. Perhaps that is why many people throughout the U.S. have not heard about the sabotage to the rail tracks in the Chicago metro area discovered by authorities on 24 September 2007. Inspectors checking the track found that over 30 railroad spikes that hold down metal plates that bind the rails to wooden ties underneath were intentionally removed “by a person or persons unknown.” The spikes were taken from tracks that affect three commuter lines including the Metra Electric Line to University Park and Blue Island, and the South Shore Line to Michigan City and South Bend, Indiana Combined, these lines carry about 40,000 people daily.

According to one federal law enforcement source close to the investigation speaking to the Northeast Intelligence Network on the condition of anonymity, investigators found that the spikes were removed from a specific and strategic portion of the tracks in an open and unguarded area. According to this source, the number of spikes removed and the location from where they were taken are of particular concern, and suggest that the perpetrators had studied the lines and perhaps even conducted surveillance on the trains. The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for information pertaining to the potentially deadly incident.

This week, however, authorities publicly denied that the removal of the railroad spikes had anything whatsoever to do with the separate derailments of two commuter trains this week - derailments that occurred on the same track as the removal of the spikes last week. According to authorities investigating the derailments, they determined that heavy vehicular and train traffic caused a “slight separation between the tracks,” leading to the derailments of two slow-moving trains near a busy crossing on Tuesday night. The cars remained upright and no injuries were reported.

The federal law enforcement source speaking to the Northeast Intelligence Network expressed concerns of an increased number of similar incidents in the Chicago area, adding that the security is not keeping up with the demand as it should. Currently, the United States has more than 140,000 miles of track that carry millions of rail passengers every year, and hundreds of freight trains that carry hazardous materials which pose a significant risk to those who work on or live near railroad tracks.

Muslim “gang” trial starts in Miami; Americans need to pay attention

Tune in to the Glenn Beck Show tonight: Brad Thor talks about jihad in America


3 October 2007: Some media are portraying the “Liberty City Seven” - the 7 Muslim converts who swore an oath to Osama bin Laden as a bunch of inept “Jihad wannabes” who were filled with more aspiration and inspiration than actual ability to wage their own level of jihad against the citizens of America. Somehow, that characterization by the media, their “talking heads,” and even some in law enforcement provides a sense of comfort to the mainstream public, albeit a very flawed sense of comfort.

Tune in to Glenn Beck tonight and listen to Mr. Thor tell America why we need to pay attention as groups like this are indeed components of Glenn Beck’s “Perfect Storm.”
