With purported new bin Laden tape, al-Qaeda resurfaces

The attempted bombing on Christmas day — and a recent message purportedly from Osama bin Laden — have focused new attention on al-Qaeda and its aims.

A report this week from a former senior C.I.A. official warns that al-Qaeda is being patient but has not abandoned its goal of carrying out another major attack on the U.S. — with a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon.

For more, Daljit Dhaliwal interviews Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University.

The man who allegedly tried to blow up a U.S. jetliner on Christmas day spent several years studying in Britain.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was president of the at University College London’s Islamic Society — which has been under scrutiny in recent weeks.

Nadim Baba of Al Jazeera English reports from the university and interviews students who knew Abdulmutallab.




Usama bin Ladin’s successful “Fly-By of the World Trade Center”, should never have happened! Let me reiterate. We should never had slacked-off on intelligence gathering regarding our mryiad of “Spy-Agencies”,referring to the CIA’s,FBI’s,or the litany of Homeland Security Agencies,ie.) Organization’s,…”Radar”,period! For years the Arabs/Middle East have been trying unsuccessfully to undermine America’s Financial(World Trade Center)House,…quite similar to todays “Drug Lord War’s”,ie.) drive-by’s to gain dominance,and total control of trafficking via drugs,or money (as it so’ parallels the World Trade Center tragic travesty)substantially instablizing “America’s Financial System”. Think about it,…after 9-11 we’ve had the greatest financial crises since the “Great Depression” (I’m not sure if were just fooling ourselves about dodging this bullet?)and the cause (a paradox of co-incident ?),and effect doesn’t bode well for the american people regarding their financial well being concerning the countries current financial welfare! America has now spent Trillions of dollars trying to get us out of the crises the Bush #43 Administration has left,and saddled us with,…but unfortunately President Obama has doubled that deep-hole of debt inherited by Bush#43,(Bush’s unpaid War’s,and lowering of taxes for the Wealthiest of Americans)in just one year putting our very country on the brink of bankruptcy. We are still in Iraq,Afghanistan,and now in Pakistan,Yemen,and Sudan,etc.,etc., all paid for on borrowered money from China. My final point being,…grossly(malfeasance?) missed by the powers to be are as follows:#1) Our current Gov’t,and Political System has,and is maliciously being mismanaged,and manipulated fiscally since 9-11; #2) We are at war with the invisable world of terrorist whom seem to hate only the United States. But in hind-sight,and great thought these invisables hate any,or all great powers as well ,…but we,”America” pay the bill for the “World’s Police Force” protecting the other entities (zippo,no $$$ charge,your welcome?) on China’s dime; #3)If we keep up with our “In-Perpetuity Wars”,and fiscal irresponsility we will collapse as a nation thus bringing,and fulfilling victory to just one “Nut-Job” the ultimate foundation of America’s Financial House in ruins!


…I’m so sure what ever the deed of al-QAEDA’S
vendetta of devastation could be .. ???
…..Eric Holder can Lawyer him-up =[terrorist] !


I continue to find it hard to believe that with all the intelligence the free world has at it’s disposal, that they can’t find and do away with bin ladin. There’s a monetary value in continuing a war, the purchase of weaponery and gear. Is this really a ‘war’ or is it a way to ‘make money’? Remember Viet Nam? It was a way to ‘make money’, supposedly, legitimately, but it wasn’t. Is this middle east situation the same thing?

I find no real reason to be doing what we are doing. I heard on the news many many years ago that bin ladin was within our grasp. What happened? Why was he allowed to get away? So that military contractors could ‘continue’ making lots of money? They hadn’t had enough by then? 10 years later!!! And we still don’t have him??? What’s the matter? Intelligence was better during the Cold War!!!

Bring our troups home!! The countries are allowing and condoning the killings of our young men for no GOOD REASON, bring them home now. There were no men available for my generation of husbands, the 1960’s. Many of us could not marry and have the kids we should have had. The good ones are dead or insane. The ones who were too chicken to go and got deferrments, are still chicken to this day. The same thing is being done to this generation. Stop it!!!


Maybe if we stopped mutating their children with depleted uranium they wouldn’t want to do it back to us.

“Iraqi and visiting doctors, and a number of news reports, have reported that birth defects and cancers in Iraqi children have increased five- to 10-fold since the 1991 Gulf War and continue to increase sharply, to over 30-fold in some areas in southern Iraq.

Currently, more than 50 percent of Iraqi cancer patients are children under the age of 5, up from 13 percent.”
