Missing Malaysian Jetliner Hijacked, Planned 2001

In News, terrorism on March 15, 2014 at 11:39

I have been suspicious of the whereabouts of the  Malaysian Jetliner on its way to Beijing.

For one NO SOS has been received by Ground Control.

2.Suspicious characters were traveling under false passports,

3.No debris was found in the possible area of Disaster .

Three theories that the plane could have encountered weather problems and disintegrated over the sea.

It was found that there was no Data from the Airlines to the Ground.

However the manufacturer received Data from the Engines of the Jetliner indicating that the plane was flying four hours after the plane was reported missing.

Now it is highly suspected that the plane has been hijacked after indication from  Malaysian Airlines that an experienced Pilot might have been flying the aircraft too low to avoid detention by the Radar.

A terror group from Malaysia plotted in the weeks after 9/11 to attack an airplane using explosives hidden in their shoes, according to a former terrorist who claimed to have supplied the bomb.

Saajid Badat, a British national and terrorist-turned-government witness, told a New York court Tuesday that he met the group of Malaysians, which included a pilot, in late 2001 and claimed they planned to blow open a plane’s cockpit door in order to carry out a 9/11-style hijacking.

 

AVIATION INVESTIGATORS trying to piece together what happened to the Malaysia Airlines jetliner have concluded that one of the pilots or someone else with flying experience hijacked the plane and steered it off course, according to a Malaysian government official.”

Capturing Terrorist Live Video

In terrorism, US on February 11, 2014 at 07:28

It is knows that the US comes down hard on Terrorists.

But how hard ?

“Al-Libi, who had been wanted by the U.S. for more than a decade for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, was spirited from his Delta Force captors eventually to a Navy ship in the Mediterranean where he was believed to be questioned by the U.S. government’s High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group.

Al-Libi was then brought to New York to face terrorism-related charges. He has pleaded not guilty. Al-Libi’s attorney, Bernard Kleinman, told The Washington Post his client never swore allegiance to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and was not involved in the embassy attacks.

The former special operations soldier who spoke to ABC News, who has been on similar “snatch” missions, said that the October operation was likely carried out by an eight- to ten-man team. Another source with knowledge of the operation said the men were disguised to appear like locals.

Al Qaeda Mushrooms Pose Serious Threat

In terrorism on January 29, 2014 at 17:22

Al Qaeda has long been a monolith, though operating as a Multinational Corporate.

It had a Central Command and the structures though cut off directly from the directly,had a strict Unitary structure.

No longer.

Al Qaeda Splits

Al Qaeda Cells

The Syrian Branch or the Franchisee of the Al Qaeda brushed aside  the instruction from to stay away  by Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of Al Qaeda

It was the first time in the history of the world’s most notorious terrorist organization that one of the affiliates had publicly broken with the international leadership, and the news sent shock waves through the online forums where jihadists meet. In no uncertain terms, ISIS had gone rogue.

That split, in June, was a watershed moment in the vast decentralization of Al Qaeda and its ideology since 9/11. As the power of the central leadership created by Osama bin Laden has declined, the vanguard of violent jihad has been taken up by an array of groups in a dozen countries across Africa and the Middle East, attacking Western interests in Algeria and Libya, training bombers in Yemen, seizing territory in Syria and Iraq, and gunning down shoppers in Kenya.

What links these groups, experts say, is no longer a centralized organization but a loose ideology that any group can appropriate and apply as it sees fit while gaining the mystique of a recognized brand name. In short, Al Qaeda today is less a corporation than a vision driving a diverse spread of militant groups.

“Al Qaeda is kind of a ready-made kit now,” said William McCants, a scholar of militant Islam at the Brookings Institution. “It is a portable ideology that is entirely fleshed out, with its own symbols and ways of mobilizing people and money to the cause. In many ways, you don’t have to join the actual organization anymore to get those benefits.”

For policy makers and terrorism analysts, this has made it harder to define what it means to be “Al Qaeda” and to gauge and combat threats. In addition, disagreements over definitions of Al Qaeda have animated debates in Washington about the perpetrators of the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, especially over the Benghazi militant group Ansar al-Shariah. Although intelligence agencies and the State Department do not consider the group an affiliate of Al Qaeda, some Republican critics of President Obama argue that its puritanical, anti-Western vision makes it one.”

The US has made it tough for Al Qaeda Central command to function effectively after Osama Bin Laden’s Death.

Armed with Data from Osama’s hardD rive, the Al Qaeda Cells have been immobilized.

To operate effectively, a minimum autonomy was needed.

When that was granted, the Franchisees began to assert themselves.

This causes even more serious concern as it would be difficult to identify the Groups which operate under Al Qaeda and becomes very tough in handling Terrorist threats.

Al-QaedaOn Twitter.Its Meticulous Accounting

In terrorism on December 30, 2013 at 18:34

Al Qaeda has opened its Twitter Account.

It talks of building a God Brand Image!

Today’s news: we’ve taken over PR for IAC. They felt we “offered a more positive image for the brand” than @JustineSacco.”

 

Al-Qaeda

@alqaeda

Working to expel the infidels from the lands of the Faithful, unite Muslims and create a new Islamic caliphate.

All at sea · alqaeda.tumblr.com

It had 38,174 Followers and if follows one

Surprised that it is being allowed t open a Twitter Account.

Latest Tweet dates 23 December 2013.

Anther interesting fact is that the Al Qaeda maintains meticulous account for its expenses.

Keeps meticulous Account.

In more than 100 receipts left in a building occupied by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Timbuktu earlier this year, the extremists assiduously tracked their cash flow, recording purchases as small as a single light bulb. The often tiny amounts are carefully written out in pencil and colored pen on scraps of paper and Post-it notes: The equivalent of $1.80 for a bar of soap; $8 for a packet of macaroni; $14 for a tube of super glue.

The accounting system on display in the documents found by The Associated Press is a mirror image of what researchers have discovered in other parts of the world where Al Qaeda operates, including Afghanistan, Somalia and Iraq. The terror group’s documents around the world also include corporate workshop schedules, salary spreadsheets, philanthropy budgets, job applications, public relations advice and letters from the equivalent of a human resources division.

Salary Of A Terrorist, Alqaeda HuM

In terrorism on December 22, 2013 at 18:54

How much is  a Terrorist paid?

Despite all the jingoism about Jihad, Ideology, I believe that Economic conditions do play an important part.

Though there are well to do operatives in every terrorist outfit, higher percentage of Field Operatives, meaning who are prepared o die hail from a poor background.

Most of the Operatives of the Al Qaeda are from the poverty-stricken areas of Africa,Countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The decision makers are from , mostly, from the affluent sections of the Society.

In general the Terrorists are given free boarding and lodging facilities and Travel and operational expenses are provided by the terrorist outfits.

The organisation also takes care of the Operative’s Family, Children education and in cases of dire emergency pay up medical expenses.

These facilities are decided on a case to case to basis.

There are many terrorist out fits, Palestinians,Intifada,LTTE,IRA,Red Brigade,Baader Meinhof, Spanish terrorists and recently the Al Qaeda.

The Palestinian Authority recently disclosed that it pays $ 50, 00 to those jailed by Israel or by the other countries and a Lifetime pension of $1135 per month,this is calculated on the basis of the Operation they were involved and the number of years they spent in prison.

Hizb ul Mujahideen operatives are paid Rs 10,000 to 12,000 per month from 2011.(Boarding lodging free)

This is fivefold increase from 2001.

Since Al Qaeda funds its affiliates like HUM the salary structure varies depending on the country of operations.

It is safe to assume thy get not less than INR 15 to 20,000 excluding boarding and lodging ,Perks mentioned above.

While in other countries like those in Europe and The US, they might be paid anywhere from 5 t0 10, 000 Dollars a month.
