9/11, GWOT, Osama & Hamza Killed


By John R. Houk

© August 1, 2019

 

Way back on September 11, 2001 Osama bin Laden headed the Islamic terrorist organization responsible for killing 2,977 people instantaneously in New York City, the Pentagon building, Shanksville PA airline crash and the passenger victims on three other flights.

 

Art Moore reported in September 2018:

 

More than 2,000 first responders have died from diseases related to the toxic fumes and dust at Ground Zero in New York City.

 

Thousands more, perhaps as many as 10,000 people, have been diagnosed with 9/11-related diseases such as cancer and severe respiratory disease.

 

The Daily Wire in September 2018 used some USA Today statistics to report:

 

  • In 2017, 23 current or former members of the New York City Police Department died of 9/11-related diseases. That’s the same number of NYPD members that perished on Sept. 11, 2001.

 

  • The FDNY lost a stunning 343 members on Sept. 11, 2001. Since then, line-of-duty deaths linked to 9/11 are approaching 180, now well over half lost on the day of the attacks. So many have died since the attacks that last year, a new tablet had to be added to the Hall of Heroes at 1 Police Plaza to accommodate all the names of the fallen.

 

  • One FBI agent was reported killed in Sept. 11, 2001, attacks; as of this August, the FBI reports a death toll of 15 from cancers linked to toxic exposure during the subsequent investigation and cleanup.

 

  • According to John Feal, founder of the Feal Good Foundation that supports 9/11 rescue and recovery workers, there have been more losses so far this year – 163 – than in any year since he started tabulating them in 2008.”

 

American-hating Muslims followed the dictates of their revered writings to make the entire world submit to Islam or kill those who refuse to submit led to nearly 3,000 immediate deaths on American soil. Those attacks way back in 2001 are still killing Americans in 2019. That day on a September morning made Roosevelt’s day that would live in infamy – where “2,403 U.S. personnel, including 68 civilians” not as infamous in comparison to 9/11. I wonder how many Americans continued to die from the affects of that Pearl Harbor attack for years to come – even after WWII. Now 65,811,500 died as a result of WWII, all those millions died to combat or massacre scenarios. Not one (excluding the Pearl deaths) of those WWII millions died from the post-affects of the Pearl Harbor attack at least not in the same way FIRST RESPONDERS from 9/11 are still dying today.

 

THANK GOD a significant majority in Congress passed and President Trump signed September 11th Victim Compensation Fund on July 29.

 

According to Brown University’s Watson Institute, American and Allied troops that have “ died fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had passed 6,900 at the end of 2018.” Those numbers relate to 17 years of an eighteen year old war still happening. WHY?

 

Because an Islamic Supremacist from Saudi Arabia in his perceived safe have in Afghanistan decided to kill people on American soil for the glory of the moon-deity turned into a monotheistic god called Allah. It is my suspicion more Muslims who may or may not publicly agree with the global dictates of Islam shouted Allahu Akbar on 9/11.

 

So yes, as what Leftists, Multiculturalists and far too many Muslims would guess by now, I am not very friendly toward any part of the ideology inherent in Islam thus calling me with their epithet of Islamophobe.

 

As such, I was quite pleased with one thing accomplished in the Obama Administration: The demise of the perfidious instigator of this current war on terrorism, specifically Navy SEALS killing Osama bin Laden in his Pakistan hideout in an Abbottabad compound on May 2, 2011. Just in case you are not privy to the location of the Abbottabad compound, it was remarkably close to a Pakistani elite military academy leading many – including myself – to believe Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was hiding bin Laden from the USA.

 

Even though Afghanistan is hardly a unified nation. It is my humble opinion America should began pulling out of Afghanistan after the 9/11 perpetrator faced American justice. I have no doubt the reason the U.S. Military has maintained its Afghan presence because of the common belief the still powerful Taliban would ultimately reassert control of the nation enforcing Islam’s draconian Sharia Law brutalizing all who do not submit to said Islamic Sharia. Also Afghanistan would again become a haven for globalist-Caliphate-minded Islamic terrorists taking potshots not only at American and Israeli interests but toward anything portraying Western Culture. Europe’s idiotic Multiculturalist policy has already disrupted the European rule of law towards trying to add incompatible Islam, think how much worse for those folks with an Afghan protected terrorist haven aimed at the West.

 

At any rate, I had heard Al Qaeda had been grooming Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza bin Laden to take the reigns of terrorist leadership. From a 1600Daily.com alert I have learned that Hamza bin Laden has been killed. Al Qaeda will have to look for another loony Muslim for charismatic leadership.

 

The media outlets reporting Hamza’s death are mum on the details of the how, where and when. I’ve only found the BBC willing to report Hamza’s death was accomplished by a U.S. airstrike. My guess details may be lacking because an actual body hasn’t been spotted and perhaps only distant drone video footage has led to the assumption of death.

Hamza Bin Laden, the son of al-Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden, died in an air strike, US media outlets report, citing intelligence officials. The place and date of death were unclear. The Pentagon did not comment. Bin Laden, thought to be aged about 30, had released audio and video messages calling for attacks on the US and other countries. As recently as February, the US government offered $1m (£825,000) for information leading to his capture.

Hamza bin Laden, the son of Osama bin Laden, is dead, NBC News reported on July 31. Hamza had been expected to take over as al Qaeda leader. He was 30 years old. His death has not been officially confirmed. The NBC report was later confirmed by the New York Times.

 

Hamza bin Laden is one of Osama bin Laden’s living wives, Khairiah Sabar. Sabar was present during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound that resulted in the death of the 9/11 mastermind. Hamza was at a training camp at the time of the raid. The current leader of al Qaeda is Egyptian eye surgeon Ayman al-Zawahiri.

 

The NBC report says that Hamza’s death was confirmed by three U.S. officials. The New York Times reports that the U.S. was involved in Hamza’s death. In February 2019, the CIA offered a $1 million reward for information regarding Hamza’s whereabouts.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

The Associated Press reported in March 2019 that Saudi Arabia, where Hamza was born, in the city of Jeddah in 1989, had revoked his citizenship. That AP article identified Hamza’s mother a child psychologist who was also from Jeddah. Jon Gambrell wrote, “She gave birth to Hamza, their only child together, as al-Qaida took its first, tentative steps toward the Sept. 11 attacks.”

Hamza’s latest wanted poster from the FBI says that he was suspected to be in either Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, or Iran. The poster concludes with the lines, “Hamza bin Laden is wanted for questioning in connection with his membership in the Al Qaeda organization and his public declarations threatening the security of the United States.”

Former FBI agent Ali Soufan wrote in September 2017 that “Hamza is being prepared for a leadership role in the organization his father founded. The article said that Hamza was looked upon fondly by “rank-and-file” jihadis. Soufan added that Hamza was seen as a new figure who could unite jihadis across the world due to the collapse of ISIS. The article’s title referred to Hamza as being “al Qaeda’s Leader in Waiting.”

 

Those writings were echoed by Professor Fawaz Gerges told the BBC in August 2017 that Hamza was “the new face of al-Qaeda – he is charismatic, he is very popular with the rank and file. He was his father’s favorite son – everyone, even for the last ten years, has been talking about Hamza succeeding his father.”

The FBI said in 2018 that Hamza had married the daughter of Al Qaeda senior leader Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, aka Abu Muhammad al Masri. al Masri has been indicted for his involvement in the bombings of the United States Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

 

The Guardian reported in August 2018 that Hamza was also married to the daughter of Mohammed Atta. Atta is considered to have been the lead hijacker on 9/11. Hamza’s uncles, Ahmad and Hassan al-Attas told the newspaper that their nephew had taken a senior role within Al Qaeda and was planning revenge on the U.S. for the death of his father in 2011. Ahmad said in the interview, “We have heard he has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta. We’re not sure where he is, but it could be Afghanistan.”

The act of promoting Hamza was an attempt to capitalize on the 30-year-old’s last name. Security analyst Peter Bergen told CNN at the time, “Obviously, he has the family name. He’s now playing a propaganda role, and he’s a lot younger than some of the other leaders of al Qaeda, in their 50s or their 60s.” In 2008, the Daily Telegraph reported that Hamza made similar calls for war against the United Kingdom.

Something Else To Fret About: ISIS Mounting Dirty Bombs On Drones


You should be wondering the same thing that National Security and Homeland Security experts are taking seriously.

Something Else To Fret About: ISIS Mounting Dirty Bombs On Drones

 

Drone Over City

 

By Tim Johnson from Special to McClatchy Washington Bureau

September 8, 2017

In Homeland Security

 

Here’s a fear that keeps counter-terrorism officials up at night: Extremists might use drones to drop dirty bombs or poison on Western cities.

 

It could just be a matter of time before Islamic State fighters take drone usage from the battlefield in Syria and Iraq to urban areas of the West, security officials say.

 

“I understand that an openly available drone, such as a quadcopter, which is able to hold a camera, can drop some dirty explosive device,” Friedrich Grommes, Germany’s top international terrorism official, told McClatchy on the sidelines of a national security forum.

 

“Even if only a few people are affected, it serves completely the idea of terrorism,” Grommes added. The payload would be “something which is poisonous. It could be a chemical or whatever is commercially available.”

 

Concerns about such tactics grew after Australian federal police said on Aug. 3 that they had disrupted an Islamic State plot to build an “improvised chemical dispersion device” that terrorists sought to deploy in urban areas. Plotters aimed to spread hydrogen sulfide, a poisonous gas.

 

Such a flying dirty bomb could be attached to a drone and used in Europe or North America, counter-terrorism officials said.

 

“That technology hasn’t quite crossed the Atlantic. It actually hasn’t left the battlefield,” said Chris Rousseau, director of Canada’s Integrated Terrorism Assessment Centre, based in Ottawa.

 

Rousseau and other counter-terror experts spoke at the two-day Intelligence & National Security Summit 2017 in Washington.

 

After the panel, Rousseau spoke further about a drone carrying a terrorist weapon: “The question is at what point somebody’s going to get the idea to use that here.”

 

Extremists may not have the knowhow to manufacture deadly nerve or chemical agents, choosing simpler chemical components and combining them with an explosive, Grommes said.

 

“They will refrain from developing the complex chemical or biological attacks because they want to have the sudden spectacular blast,” said Grommes, who heads a directorate focused on international terrorism at Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service, known as the BND.

 

Counter-terrorism officials, speaking about other facets of the war on terrorism, said nations must not get complacent about a possible strengthening of al-Qaida, the extremist faction that launched the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, eventually retreating from Afghanistan to the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa amid sustained U.S.-led military pressure. The group has been overshadowed by the Islamic State.

 

In a reversal of al-Qaida’s earlier tactics, Sheikh Hamza bin Laden, son of the deceased al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, called in May for the group’s followers to embrace the kinds of “lone wolf attacks” used by Islamic State, its bitter rival, in which jihadists execute terror operations acting largely on their own and without direction.

 

Experts said the latest crop of terror attacks in Europe were largely carried out by men afflicted by anger more than driven by religious fanaticism.

 

Khalid Masood, a 52-year-old Briton who plowed a car into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge on March 22, killing five people and injuring 50, left behind writings with “almost no real ideological content,” said Paddy McGuinness, Britain’s deputy national security adviser for intelligence, security and resilience.

 

Attackers find an outlet for rage in radical interpretations of Islam, McGuinness said.

 

“They are looking for something and they stick a sticker on it and they find their justification,” McGuinness said. “Their grip on their religion is so superficial as to be less than what you’d get by watching a television documentary.”

 

Rousseau, the Canadian official, echoed that belief.

 

“Religious ideology is very much the excuse,” Rousseau said, noting that little differentiates the anger of white supremacists and Islamic radicals.

 

McGuinness called on Britain’s allies to do more to remove radical Islamic content from the internet, where he said it becomes an echo chamber for radicals.

 

“People can radicalize very, very quickly,” McGuinness said. Just as some countries bar pedophiles from putting content on line, he said Western countries need to fight the presence of extremists online, “not allow them to be there.”
