Flight 1544 Update: Pilot to tower radio communication “unavailable”

Annie Jacobsen: FBI Headquarters is now handling the Continental Flight 1544 incident

by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

FOLLOW-UP: 2 June 2008: With regard to the unavailability of the requested audio file referenced below, a representative from LiveATC.net explained that the audio feed for Houston ATC has been inoperable for several months. LiveATC.net is a premier training resource for pilots and air traffic controllers. They do their best to provide all available audio and data, but in some instances, feeds are simply not available.

We appreciate their input, thus clearing up this matter.

–Doug Hagmann, Director

31 May 2008: Investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network continue to investigate the report of what can best be described as a “ground-fired missile” nearly hitting Continental Airlines Flight 1544 on Memorial Day. Our initial report was published on Tuesday following an interview with a passenger aboard the aircraft who witnessed the incident.

During the course of our investigation, we attempted to obtain the archived recording of the communications between Flight 1544 and the air traffic control center at Houston. Archives are routinely stored and are accessible via the Internet at LiveATC.net. When we requested the audio archive that would provide the actual pilot to control tower communication for the incident, we received the following message:

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Annie Jacobsen, author of Terror in The Skies, Why 9/11 Could Happen Again and investigative journalist of The Aviation Nation reported that the FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC is now handling the Continental Flight 1544 incident. Her report can be read at this link.

At present, the establishment media appears to have lost interest in this incident, approaching the “model rocket” explanation with insufficient skepticism. This should concern all Americans, and especially all members of the flying public.

Colleague Mr. Joshua Mezzacapo contributed to this report.

Many said it flew rapidly past the front of the plane, nearly missing it. The plane was flying at an altitude of 5,000 feet and 11 miles east of Bush Intercontinental Airport. The Pilot radioed to the control tower that the object was “missile-like with a thick contrail” traveling at a high rate of speed. Complete article here

Of Pundits, C-T analysts and the Rachael Ray “Rorschach Test”

by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

30 May 2008: Complete and utter nonsense. Misplaced and misdirected hypersensitivity that will do nothing more than marginalize legitimate efforts to expose the real “cultural jihad” – a sometimes subliminal war that is being waged against the very fabric of the United States.

What am I talking about?

Of all things and of all people, I am referring to the societal uproar involving Rachel Ray, the ever vibrant and affable host of various shows on cable television’s food network.

In the event you haven’t heard – and if you haven’t, consider yourself among those with “a life,” Ms. Ray appeared in a Dunkin’ Donut’s commercial wearing a scarf that some media pundits and various self-described counter-terrorism analysts described as a visible token of support for anti-Israeli sentiments and pro-Palestinian jihad.

While the biggest offense would arguably be a felonious assault on the fashion industry, Ms. Malkin appears to be asserting that Ms. Ray and her “handlers” are attempting to subliminally desensitize the viewing public to the very real anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian and pro-Islamic campaign being waged against the American way of life. The normally spot-on Ms. Malkin, who does a great service to her readers and this country by exposing the covert activities of anti-American Islamic radicals, appears to have consumed too much of the caffeinated beverage advertised by Ms. Ray in the commercial that was pulled by Dunkin’ Donuts.

One might ask that if that is the case, why bother writing anything about a matter so ridiculous as this?

One reason: the American public needs to understand the threat that we face as a nation posed by the “movers and shakers of the Islamic community” to have our Judeo-Christian heritage and our democratic values subjugated by oppressive Islamic doctrines and Sharia. They are waging war not on the traditional battlefields or Afghanistan and Iraq, but through our media and in our courts. And they are winning.

Yes, the threat is indeed real, and there are subliminal and more transparent attempts being made to achieve those goals. To identify this as one of those attempts, however, turns the people with reasonable sensibilities into unbelievers, thus undermining our efforts to educate the public.

Ms. Ray, remove the scarf because, well, it’s UGLY.

Ms. Malkin et. al, switch to Dunkin’ Donut’s DECAF.

To various others, you need to get out more…

WMD threat by Islamic terrorists

by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

28 May 2008: According to this report by ABC news released yesterday, “al Qaeda supporters will post a new video on the Internet in the next 24 hours, calling for what one source said is “jihadists to use biological, chemical and nuclear weapons to attack the West.” Independent researcher and analyst Archangel obtained a copy of the 39 minute, 22 second video message late Monday night. According to the cyber-surveillance conducted, there has been a significant interest in this particular video based on the number of downloads since it was initially uploaded to the Internet on 24 May 2008. Surveillance over a two day period revealed it’s popularity - the film became one of the most popular files downloaded in a remarkably short period.

Tune in to Thursday’s Tom Bauerle program for updates and additional information to this and related news stories.

It’s easy to dismiss the threats of the use of WMDs by Islamic terrorists as simple bravado. After all, the common theory is that “if they had them, they would have already used them.”

Independent analysts submitting data finds to the Northeast Intelligence Network have collectively noted a recent upsurge of WMD messages, including at least one reference to Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, Islamic terrorist and al Qaeda terrorist who is reportedly in the United States.

Feds mum on “missile” incident involving passenger airline

Passengers advised not to talk about incident

27 May 2008: Shortly after takeoff yesterday morning, the pilot of Continental Flight 1544 reported seeing a rapidly moving object with a thick smoke trail closing in on his aircraft and shooting past his cockpit window. According to some of the crew and passengers aboard Flight 1544 traveling from Houston to Cleveland, it appeared like some type of missile was headed toward the aircraft. The plane was at an altitude of 5,000 feet and 11 miles east of Bush Intercontinental Airport when the pilot radioed the control tower to report the sighting. The object was described as “missile-like with a thick contrail,” and traveling at a high rate of speed.

As currently being reported by various media outlets, the FAA is suggesting that the object seen by some of the 148 passengers and six crew members was a model rocket. This explanation, however, falls short in many areas.

One passenger who was aboard the plane and saw the object told Northeast Intelligence Network director Doug Hagmann early today that “it was definitely no model rocket.” This passenger, who contacted the Northeast Intelligence Network after seeing news reports about the “near-hit,” stated that she was interviewed by an agent of the FBI in Cleveland yesterday. She declined to provide her name as the agent advised her “not to talk publicly about [this incident] as it is under investigation.”

“I just want you to know that the news reports are not accurate. That’s not what I saw,” stated this witness.

Flashback…

It was on November 26, 2005 when the pilot of American Airlines Flight 612 reported a “near-hit” from what was described as a rocket as the aircraft was traveling over the Santa Monica Bay at approximately 5,000 feet. Although the incident received scant media attention, the Northeast Intelligence Network provided an extensive investigative report on the incident, complete with audio from the pilot and control tower.

Additional details on this latest incident will be provided as they are developed.

Memorial Day 2008- Don’t Let Them Have Died in Vain

“Don’t be fooled into thinking that Islam is just another religious movement finding its own in the United States. It is a warped, corrupt, evil, multi-faceted blanket that encompasses all aspects of every country it infects. The religious system, economic system, political system is all sucked into Islamic hell in each of these Islamic governments. We do not want it here.” - Randy Taylor

By Randy Taylor, Independent Analyst

26 May 2008: On this Memorial Day May 2008 we reflect on the losses of our heroes, our servicemen and women that have so selflessly offered their lives in the defense of this great nation. We need to make sure that these brave people didn’t die in vain.

I say this because the United States of America is changing, changing in a manner that would disgust most of the people we are honoring this day. These fallen ones fought for our freedom, our sovereignty, our democracy and they fought for a country they loved, they honored, and a country that they hoped with their dying breath wouldn’t squander what was paid for with their blood.

I’m afraid we are disappointing them.

Terrorists at Swedish Nuke Plant?

21 May 2008: [Updated] Two Swedish contractors were arrested suspected of preparing to sabotage the power plant after traces of explosives were found on one of the men, according to police. Initially, a welding subcontractor at the plant was taken into police custody after plant security officials stopped him when traces of the explosive TATP were found on a bag he was carrying. TATP, also known as “The Mother of Satan” for its lethal instability, is a favorite among Islamic terrorists. A second man was arrested after police questioned the first.

The Oskarshamn plant has three nuclear reactors, which produce about 10% of Sweden’s electricity supply.

Worker at Swedish nuke plant arrested after explosive found

21 May 2008: A welder passing a security check point at the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant in Sweden was stopped and found to have the highly unstable explosive TATP, or triacetone triperoxide in his possession. TATP, also known as “The Mother of Satan” for its lethal instability, is a favorite among Islamic terrorists. There is no legitimate purpose for anyone to have the homemade explosive, much less than to have it at a nuclear facility. The identity as well as the motives of the worker remain unknown at this time. Developing…

Islamist Chickens Roosting in America`s Backyard

The need for bullets, bombs and airplanes loaded with fuel and innocent passengers wanes with the greater influx of Islamist influence into American society.Doug Hagmann

21 May 2008: A potential audience of one million Arab-speaking cable subscribers of Time Warner in the greater New York area can feast on the Arabic Channel known as TAC to choose a menu that includes:

- A daily dose of Islamic jurisprudence from a sheik — most often Egyptian Amr Khaled, who wears a suit instead of a robe, advocating “peaceful jihad.” He opines on how it is the duty of Arab-Americans to become first, second, and always members of the Muslim ummah. The softness of his jihad-chic demeanor belies its exclusionary message: segregation of Arab-American Muslims from fellow Americans.

Newt Gingrich: Threats to America

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

16 MAY 08: In the current “Inside the Ring” column by Bill Gertz the lead-off segment focuses on a speech given yesterday (15 MAY) by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to the Business Executives for National Security.

In his speech Speaker Gingrich concurred with something I wrote as a comment the day before in the “Iranian Nuclear-Capable Cruise Missile Threat” entry of the NEINblog:

It’s not just the bleeding heart liberals who are sabotaging America from within. It is now the established policy of the whole of the United States Government to deny any link between Islam and Terrorism. Period. It’s true, Republicans and Democrats alike hold dual responsibility for this absolute insanity. What’s even worse… the apparent majority of U.S. citizens don’t give a flip about it either. This is a combination of bald-faced negligence, willful ignorance and, quite probably, official malfeasance on a grand scale.”

Bin Laden: Palestinian issue behind al Qaeda’s war with West [Updated]

by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

UPDATE: 16 May 2008: As expected, an audiotape message was released overnight by as-Sahab, the media wing of al Qaeda. The message, nine minutes, 40 seconds (09:40) in length, was an audio track purported to be that of Osama bin Laden, accompanied by a stock photo of the terrorist imposed over an image of the al Aqsa mosque of Jerusalem.

The primary focus of the message appeared to be the “Palestinian cause,” with the speaker calling the Palestinian situation the root cause fueling al Qaeda’s war against the West and the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.

Excerpted:

To Western nations … this speech is to understand the core reason of the war between our civilization and your civilizations. I mean the Palestinian cause.”

“The Palestinian cause is the major issue for my (Islamic) nation. It was an important element in fueling me from the beginning and the 19 others with a great motive to fight for those subjected to injustice and the oppressed.”

“Sixty years ago, the Israeli state didn’t exist. Instead, it was established on the land of Palestine raped by force. Israelis are occupying invaders whom we should fight.”

The release of the message appeared to be expedited to insure that it coincided with the visit by President Bush to Israel.

As I noted during my appearance on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory last night, suspicion is mounting over the authenticity of the audio. Consistent with messages allegedly released by and featuring Osama bin Laden since late 2001, the latest message offered no “proof of life.” We have seen or heard little proof that bin Laden is still alive, or issuing these audio messages himself.

15 May 2008: ABC News is currently reporting that a “radical jihadist website has announced that a new message from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is forthcoming.” Research performed by the Northeast Intelligence Network investigators indeed confirmed the announcement. We are monitoring various Internet “sites” for the appearance of the message, in which bin Laden will purportedly address Israel’s 60th birthday. Out of all of the audio and video messages allegedly released from bin Laden since 1998, this is one that should immediately garner the attention of our intelligence agencies and military.
