What Could al-Qaeda Do In US and EU?

Want a chilling example of what al-Qaeda could do in America or EU if we let up on the pressure we are applying on the in Iraq? Here’s a real life example:

Italian police have arrested an Iraqi man suspected of links to Al-Qaeda in Iraq and planning attacks in his country using light aircraft bought in Italy, police said Friday.

Posing as a businessman, Fadhil learned basic flying skills to teach to other members of the group, it said, adding that the light aircraft they planned to buy are especially easy to handle, can carry loads of up to 250 kilogrammes (550 pounds) and can fly at extremely low altitudes to escape detection by radar.

Authorities fear the aircraft could be used to attack areas such as Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses the Iraqi parliament and the US embassy as well as several other foreign missions.

Why do we monitor terrorsist communications and those they contact in the EU and US? This is why. You can purchase a myriad of kits to build your own aircraft (see here for just one example). This is why we need to keep al-Qaeda losing in Iraq and we need to keep the NSA passing leads on terrorists here in the US and in the EU to law enforcement so they can do the investigations needed to gain warrants for full up surveillance.

Remember, the only changes on how NSA and FISA interact Bush made was to allow NSA tips to be allowable evidence in FISA for probable cause arguments. That’s IT. Before 9-11 NSA could not pass the name and location of a possible terrorist detected in the US to the FBI because FISA would not allow the evidence to be used as probable cause. If the NSA was the basis of the tip it was thrown in the bit bucket (“trash” for you non-technical normal people). And we through in the trash leads that could have detected and avoided 9-11. Why anyone would want to go back to that suicidal process is beyond me.

    Aj is correct.

    Just look at all the attacks in this list, it’s truely breathtacking. They are just about everywhere. This is serious buisness.

    There was a very good article in Middle East Quarterly I’d also like to pass on. It is by David Bukay titled Peace or Jihad? Abrogation in Islam. Your readers really aught to take the time to check that out as well.

    I hope you take the time to look at the list, then read this article.

    Egypt: Christians suffer from contradictions in legal system, elements of Sharia
    Sharia is making life difficult for Christians in the Egyptian secular state. “In Egypt, Religious Freedom or Shariah? Catholics Struggle With Conflicts in Law,”
    The patriarch said that on the one hand, the constitution guarantees freedom of religion and conscience while, on the other, it enforces Islam as the state religion and makes Shariah, Islamic law, the “fundamental source of the legal system.”


    It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad Sharia world: Saudi wife divorced for watching male TV host
    Sharia Alert from the country of the Two Holy Places: “Wife divorced for watching male TV host,” from the Times of India (thanks to Hot Air):

    RIYADH: A Saudi man divorced his wife for watching alone a television programme presented by a male, an act he deemed immoral, the Al Shams newspaper reported on Saturday.
    The man, whom the paper did not identify, ended his marriage on the grounds his wife was effectively alone with an unrelated man, which is forbidden under the strict Islamic law enforced in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the paper said.

    Men in Saudi Arabia have the authority to divorce their wives without resort to the courts.

    In accord with Islamic law.
