Domestic Terrorism… California arson fires easier than hijacking planes

image Officials: Arson Behind Santiago Fire

CA Fires Exclusive—Fed Source: Look to al Qaeda and the Islamic enemy in the U.S.

Law enforcement officials will agree that arson is the most difficult of crimes to “prove,” especially in terms of identifying the perpetrator(s). The fires this week in Southern California have cost more than $1 billion in lost property and displaced more than a million people, the greatest evacuation California has ever seen. The origin of the massive Santiago Canyon Fire alone has caused an estimated $10 million in damage, burning about 20,000 acres so far and damaging or destroying about 30 structures. That cause of that fire has been officially declared arson, according to federal officials, who identified two separate “points of origin.” Currently, the FBI is involved in the primary investigation of the fires, including forensic collection and analysis and scene management.

Critical Update on Turkish-Iraqi Situation

A new threat to the war against terror

imageIslamabad-Pakistan: General Pervez Musharraf is planning again to attack the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Judge Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, with the active support of Benazir Bhutto and with the covert support of the USA. High level meetings have been going on in Islamabad for the last two days to chalk out a new strategy against Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who is fast becoming a real threat to the fragile Musharraf-Benazir agreement, by puncturing the highly publicized presidential ordinance through which PPP leadership got amnesty from corruption cases. A top government official claims that the chief justice is also becoming a threat against the war on terror because he provided relief to many pro-al Qaeda and pro-Taliban elements who were in the custody of intelligence agencies without any formal charges.

Top FBI Lockerbie investigator disputes CFP story

“Proper judicial procedure is simply impossible if political interests and intelligence services—from whichever side—succeed in interfering in the actual conduct of a court… The purpose of intelligence services—from whichever side—lies in secret action and deception, not in the search for truth. Justice and the rule of law can never be achieved without transparency.”

The Muslim Brotherhood: An Association for Jihadists

One of the more clandestine groups in radical Islam is the Muslim Brotherhood. Originating in Egypt in 1928, the group has been outlawed in Egypt yet it members hold seats in the Egyptian government. That this radically fundamentalist Islamist group is the parent organization to some of the most violent terror groups operating today. It thrives as a pseudo professional association for terrorists while feigning legitimacy as a political movement. So, what is the Muslim Brotherhood and why should every American be concerned about its activities both within the United States and around the world?
