A Marine Corps reservist arrested for suspicious activity near the Pentagon last week has been charged in connection with a spate of shootings at military sites in the Washington, D.C., area last fall, federal officials said Thursday.

Yonathan Melaku videotaped himself shouting “allahu Akbar” after firing shots at the US Marine Corps museum and documents concerning bomb-making were found in his home…

Add ABC’s World News and the NBC Nightly News to James Taranto’s list of news outlets (“Losing His Religion: A Pentagon terror scare and a media taboo”) which refuse to identify Yonathan Melaku, who was caught in Arlington Cemetery with suspicious material and a notebook praising the Taliban, as a Muslim.

Wikileaks: Al-Qaida hatred for Pope caused US worries about Vatican security

Saint Peter's. Vatican City

“Al-Qaida has publicly identified the Pope and the Catholic Church as an enemy (‘Crusaders’), and Vatican City attracts hundreds of thousands of American citizen visitors each year, both tourists and pilgrims,” the cable continued

According to the cable, the head of the Vatican Gendarme Corps Domenico Giani had sought specific security training from the FBI, including explosives ordinance training for Vatican Gendarmerie members at the Quantico Marine Corps base in Virginia. However, the cable reported, Giani has been “reluctant to engage in a comprehensive dialogue with the United States about Vatican capabilities and preparedness to respond to a terrorist attack.”

Well, I agree with the Vatican official in this. If not, I’m sure Wikileaks would have released their capacities “to respond to a terrorist attack”… :roll:

Experts to Obama: Negotiate with the Taliban

Researchers Gilles Dorronsoro from France and Italian Antonio Giustozzi, as well as Pakistani journalist Ahmed Rashid, were among those who said the current strategy was failing as the Taliban, ousted from government by a US-led invasion in 2001, grew in strength.

A coalition government that includes the Taliban should be the long-term goal, they said.

“We ask you to sanction and support a direct dialogue and negotiation with the Afghan Taliban leadership residing in Pakistan,” the experts said in their open letter.

“It is better to negotiate now rather than later, since the Taliban will likely be stronger next year.”

“The situation on the ground is much worse than a year ago because the Taliban insurgency has made progress across the country,” the letter said.

“The Taliban today are now a national movement with a serious presence in the north and the west of the country.”

Well, imagine these guys in the IIWW and just think what they would have been called if they would have advised to “negotiate with the Nazis”. Consider too what consequences this would have to the Taliban presence in the are: indeed their presence now would be much greater than before 2001 if ISAF ends their mission there.

‘Christmas Tree Bomber’ Mohamud Was In Touch With Al Qaeda Mouthpiece

Republicanmother asked me here if “Christmas Tree Bomber” was in fact a danger, considering that the bomb he had planted was given to him by FBI. It looks that, despite his friends being stunned by his arrest, he was more dangerous than he looked at first.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the Somali-American college student charged with plotting an attack on a Christmas lighting event in Portland, Oregon, was in contact with, and wrote articles for, another prominent American al Qaeda propagandist for nearly two years, authorities say.

The FBI affidavit alleges that Mohamud stated to undercover agents that he had wanted to take part in violent jihad since he was 15, and that he told FBI agents that he had written four articles since 2009 for two different on-line jihadist magazines edited and distributed by Samir Khan.

Khan, 24, is the Saudi-born, New York-raised editor behind Inspire magazine, the English language online publication of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP. Khan, who has said he is currently hiding in Yemen, has become a rising figure in jihadist propaganda and an “aspiring” Anwar Awlaqi, according to U.S. intelligence officials.

Samir Khan is the guy who wroteI am Al-Qaeda to the core” and “I am proud to be a traitor to US“. He also said: I am acutely aware that body parts have to be torn apart, skulls have to be crushed and blood has to be spilled in order for this (Islam’s claim to power in modern world) to be a reality“. His magazine Inspire Magazine published a list of terrorist tips recently.

Choudary speaks about “World Wide Sharia Law”

(Found).

They may say something to you in front of CNN, but I can assure you that behind your backs they are standing with their Muslim brothers and sisters saying: We hope the Americans and the British are pushed out of our countries and we can implement the Sharia.

…You withdraw your troops, stop supporting the pirate State of Israel and then perhaps we can have a dialogue and discussion.

Does the work of a Muslim includes imposing Sharia Law on everyone who is not a Muslim, including Americans?

Look: the Sharia Law is the divine law sent by god to the final messenger prophet Mohammed… It would take manking out of the shackles of man-made law, into the perfection and beauty of divine law, so I want that everywhere. I want Sharia Law everywhere. Surely it’s a very noble thing to invite someone to a superior way of life… I believe the Americans and the British have been living under the darkness and oppression of man-made law for many decades…. But in fact, when people look at Islam, when they look at the Sharia, they will see it has a solution for every single problem that is facing America and Britain nowadays...

Mr. Choudary, are you communicating with inv¡dividuals within the USA and encouraging them to participate in attacks of this sort?

Of course I am. You know, I am participating and communicating with people all around the world….

Mr. Choudary, based upon your answer, I believe, and I believe many prosecutors were listening to your answer, you violate US Law, you deserve to be arrested, prosecuted and jailed for the rest your life”.

Geee :lol:
