'Islamic Extremist Calls For Pope's Death' from Stop the ACLU

Courtesy of Jay at Stop the ACLU: War On Terror, News

Apologies are not enough for to appease the hearts of Islamic extremists. Apparantly nothing is. Burning down churches wasn’t enough. Martyring a nun by shooting her in the back was not enough. No, for some the bloodlust can not be quenched without making the Pope into a martyr as well.

A notorious Muslim extremist told a demonstration in London yesterday that the Pope should face execution.

Anjem Choudary said those who insulted Islam would be “subject to capital punishment”.

His remarks came during a protest outside Westminster Cathedral on a day that worldwide anger among Muslim hardliners towards Pope Benedict XVI appeared to deepen.

The irony of the reaction by the Islamic extremist mobs needs not be ignored. I’m not sure whether or not the Pope deliberately through down the guantlet but his words did turn out to be prophetic and the truth. I really don’t see any reason why the pope should apologize and retreat. The only thing that should be regretted is that the central theme of his speech, that of reason and peaceful dialogue, was completely and willfully ignored. In the Islamic extremist animal mind, jihad was the “reasonable” answer.

An Iraqi militant group led by al Qaeda vowed a war against the “worshippers of the cross” in response to a recent speech by Pope Benedict on Islam that sparked anger across the Muslim world.

“We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya,” said an Internet statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council, an umbrella group led by Iraq’s branch of al Qaeda.

“We shall break the cross and spill the wine. … God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome. … God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen,” said the statement.

Hmmm. Doesn’t seem like they are interested in dialouge. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that Noticed the irony in all of this.

THE Archbishop of Sydney has drawn a link between Islamists and violence, a strident attempt to defend the Pope just as the pontiff tries to hose down Muslim anger around the world.

Cardinal George Pell says “the violent reactions in many parts of the Islamic world” to a speech by Pope Benedict justified one of the main fears expressed by the world’s Catholic leader.

“They showed the link for many Islamists between religion and violence, their refusal to respond to criticism with rational arguments, but only with demonstrations, threats and actual violence,” Cardinal Pell said in a statement yesterday.


Dan Riehl has a video to help you ponder the question of whether Islam is a religion of peace or a legion of terror.

NewsMax.Com: Bush’s CIA Critic Claim Exposed as Untrue

Email dispatch from NewsMax.Com that I received this morning and wanted to pass on to the readership of The Bosun Locker.

BOSUN's DISCLAIMER: The different points of views of Kessler or NewsMax and its contributors are not supported nor do they reflect the views and beliefs of Rumors of War or any of its affiliates.

Bush's CIA Critic Claim Exposed as Untrue

By Ronald Kessler, Chief Washington Correspondence, NewsMax.Com

WASHINGTON — In a "60 Minutes" interview on April 23, Tyler Drumheller, a former chief of the CIA's Europe division, made a se\nsational charge.

He claimed that President Bush and his White House ignored intelligence before the invasion of Iraq indicating that Saddam Hussein had no had weapons of mass destruction.

On the CBS-TV show, and in subsequent media interviews that appeared throughout the world, Drumheller said that the White House was excited about the fact that the CIA was getting information straight from Naji Sabri, the then Iraqi foreign minister. But when the White House found out this source was reliably saying that Saddam had no WMD, Bush and his White House weren't interested.

"He [Sabri] told us that they had no active weapons of mass destruction program," Drumheller told correspondent Ed Bradley in a segment called "A Spy Speaks Out."

"So in the fall of 2002, before going to war, we had it on good authority from a source within Saddam's inner circle that he didn't have an active program for weapons of mass destruction?" Bradley asked.

"Yes," Drumheller said, proclaiming himself outraged.

According to Drumheller, Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice brushed aside the CIA report on what Sabri had to say because "the policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming, and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy, to justify the policy."

Drumheller saw "how the Bush administration time and time again welcomed intelligence that fit the president's determination to go to war and turned a blind eye to intelligence that did not," Ed Bradley said in the introduction to the "60 Minutes" piece.

Now it appears Drumheller's claim was untrue, according to the findings of a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence investigation. Rather than undercutting the Bush administration's rationale for invading Iraq, Sabri's account shows how well-founded the intelligence on Saddam's weapons program appeared to be. (Bosun's comment: The 151 page senate report, Postar Findings about Iraq's WMD Program dated September 8th is linked here)

Ironically, just as Drumheller claimed that Bush ignored the truth about Iraq, the media have ignored the documentation in the Senate report demolishing Drumheller's claim.

An addenda to the Senate report on postwar findings about Iraq's WMD program says all the operational documents relating to Sabri indicate he told the CIA just the opposite of what Drumheller claimed. The Senate report refers to Sabri as a source with direct access to Saddam Hussein and his inner circle but does not name him.

"Both the operations cable and the intelligence report prepared for high-level policy-makers [based on interrogation of the source] said that while Saddam Hussein did not have a nuclear weapon, ‘he was aggressively and covertly developing such a weapon,'" the Senate report said.

(Bosun's comment: Read the text yourself . It is found on pages 143 and 144 of the senate report. Why mainstream media has failed to report this apparent misinformation is beyond me?)

The documents said "Iraq was producing and stockpiling chemical weapons," according to the addendum, signed by Sens. Pat Roberts, R–Kan., Orrin G. Hatch, R–Utah, and Saxby Chambliss, R–Ga. Iraq's weapon of last resort was mobile launched chemical weapons, which would be fired at enemy forces and Israel, the CIA documents said.

Moreover, there is "not a single document relating to this case which indicates that the source said Iraq had no WMD programs," the addenda said. "On the contrary, all of the information about this case so far indicates that the information from this source was that Iraq did have WMD programs."

What the source said was consistent with the CIA's October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate, the report said. The report added: "The committee is still exploring why the former chief/EUR's public remarks differ so markedly from the documentation."

At least 134 stories and TV shows have referred to Drumheller's claims and his criticism of the CIA and Bush administration in general. One of the stories ran as the second lead of the June 25, 2006 Washington Post.

"Warnings on WMD ‘Fabricator' Were Ignored, Ex-CIA Aide Says," the headline over the Post story said. According to the story, Drumheller was dumbfounded when he saw a classified version of the speech Secretary of State Colin Powell was about to give to the United Nations citing Iraq's biological weapons factories on wheels.

Drumheller claimed he had warned George Tenet, the director of Central Intelligence, in a phone call, and John McLaughlin, the deputy director, in a personal meeting that the source for that claim, code-named "Curveball," was a fabricator.

Not until the 32nd paragraph of the Post story did the reader learn that both Tenet and McLaughlin said they had no recollection of warnings Drumheller allegedly gave them. Both men said they would have taken immediate action if he had.

While two former CIA officials said they recalled Drumheller telling them at the time about warnings he allegedly gave McLaughlin, no meeting with Drumheller appeared on McLaughlin's official calendar, according to the report of the Commission on Intelligence Capabilities of the U.S. Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction, known as the Silverman-Robb commission.

Carroll & Graf is publishing Drumheller's book, "On the Brink: How the White House Has Compromised American Intelligence," written with Elaine Monaghan, on Sept. 28, according to the Amazon listing. The publisher's Web site lists the publication date as this winter.

Neither Drumheller nor a Carroll & Graf spokesperson responded to messages seeking comment.

So far, no media outlet has run the Senate committee's addendum demolishing Drumheller's claim that Bush and his White House did not want to hear the truth about whether Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

The Jihadist Known at Adam Gadahn

No. 1281

Al-Qaeda Operative Adam Gadahn, aka 'Azzam the American': "The Truth of Islam is Sweeping Across America and Constitutes a Fearsome Challenge to the Security, Identity, and Survival of the Crusader State [America]"; Time is Running Out to Convert to Islam Before You Meet the Dismal Fate of Thousands Before You

To view this Special Dispatch in HTML, visit: .

The following are excerpts from an address delivered by Adam Gadahn, aka 'Azzam the American', which aired on September 2, 2006.(2)


We Disbelieve in and Reject the United Nations

Adam Gadahan: "The civilization, in which anti-Semitism is an unforgivable sin, and grounds for dismissal from public and private office... The civilization which considers flag-burning to be, at the very least, an issue for congress and the courts, and perhaps even a crime against the state... The civilization which permits the filing of lawsuits against those who slander and libel celebrities, politicians, and other public figures of ill repute... A civilization such as this cannot then hide behind the excuse of freedom of expression after it desecrates copies of the Koran, or defames, with unquestionably malicious intent, the chief and master of Adam's children, and the embodiment of high morals and good character, our Prophet and Messenger Muhammad, may Allah's peace and prayers be upon him."


"We disbelieve in and reject every false god, whether it be a rock, or a human being, or a government with its polytheistic constitution, courts, and laws, or an international organization like the United Nations, with its international laws, tribunals, and treaties of unbelief, and its Security Council, whose resolutions never fail to side with the Zionist Crusaders fascists."


Democracy is Not Synonymous With Freedom; Christianity is a Hallow Shell of a Religion

"Those who think democracy is synonymous with freedom are either people who haven't experienced life in America, or Americans who haven't lived abroad. To America and the rest of Christendom, we say: Either repent of your misguided ways and enter into the light of truth, or keep your poison to yourself, and suffer the consequences in this world and the next. But whatever you do, don't attempt to spread your misery and misguidance to our lands. Muslims don't need democracy to rid themselves of their home-grown despots and tyrants. What they do need is their Islamic faith, the spirit of Jihad, and the lifting of foreign troops and interference from their necks. And if Muslims don't need democracy, then they certainly have no need for hat is known as Christianity - that hollow shell of a religion, whose followers cling to an empty faith, and a false conviction of their inevitable salvation, regardless of what they do or believe, as long as they accept the core tenets and doctrines of Paulian Christianity, which also happen to be its most unbelievable, untenable, and illogical. Like the belief that the Bible that we have today, with all its contradictions, errors, deletions, and outright fabrications, is the infallible, revealed word of God... Like the doctrine of the Original Sin, which states that Man is born in sin, because of the lapse and subsequent fall of his parents, even though we know from the Koran that God forgave our father Adam and mother Eve when they repented... Like the incomprehensible, illogical, non-biblical doctrine of Trinity... Like the belief that God sent His only begotten son, who is also God in human form, to die on a cross for the sins of mankind, which, is implied, He could otherwise not have forgiven..."


"Isn't it time for the unbelievers to discard these incoherent, illogical beliefs, theories, and conjecture? Isn't it time for every Christian, Jew, pagan, and atheist to cast off the cloak of spiritual darkness which enshrouds them, and emerge into the light of Islam, to live a life illuminated by faith and die the death of a believer, return to his Lord, pleased and pleasing to Him, God willing, rather than living out his days in blindness, to die as an unbeliever and be resurrected as an unbeliever, whose eternal abode is a fire from which the fire of this world screams in fright?"


"If the Zionist Crusader missionaries of hate and counter-Islam consultants, like Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, Michael Scheuer, Steven Emerson, and yes, even the Crusader-in-chief George W. Bush, were to abandon their unbelief and repent, and enter into the light of Islam and turn their swords against the enemies of God, it would be accepted of them and they would be our brothers in Islam - for them what is for us, and upon them what is upon us. And if even the repentance of high-ranking enemies of Islam is valid and acceptable, then it needn't be said that the same goes for the foot soldiers of the Crusade and those who have no active part to play in the war against Islam, other than paying the taxes that fund the Crusader war machine, and like pre-programmed machines or laboratory animals, living the lifestyle laid out for them, and believing the myths imparted to them by their school teachers, pastors, and politicians. They are the real victims, tranquilized inhabitants of the human farms, which these con men and women control, as our brother Mathew Stuart, may God protect him, aptly described them.

"It's no surprise, then, that over the past few years, we have seen some high-ranking Crusaders, among them the FBI chief Mueller, expressing their anxiety at the tsunami of conversions to the truth of Islam that is sweeping across America, which constitutes a fearsome challenge to the security, identity, and survival of the Crusader state, and to the authority of these con men and women. I believe that it is this phenomenon, more than anyone or anything else, which poses the real sleeping threat that keeps the Crusaders from sleeping at night - and I don't think a freedom struggle could wish for a better endorsement, to have its cause picked up by a courageous group from within the oppressor nation itself. Well, you shouldn't be surprised, because, after all, it is the duty of every Muslim to fight evil and oppression, wherever he finds it and no matter who the evil-doers might be."


"We invite all Americans and other unbelievers to Islam, wherever they are and whatever their role and status in Bush and Blair's world order. And we send a special invitation to all of you fighting Bush's Crusader pipe dream in Afghanistan, Iraq, and wherever else 'Dubya' has sent you to die."


"So instead of killing yourself for Bush, or killing yourself, out of despair and depression or guilt or remorse, why not surrender to the truth, escape from the unbelieving army, and join the winning side? Time is running out, so make the right choice before it is too late and you meet the dismal fate of thousands before you. And in this regard, I can't tell you how delighted I was to receive news of the embracing of Islam by a number of U.S. soldiers at the hands of the Muslim mujahideen imprisoned at some of the American concentration camps, which blacken the globe. And I ask God to benefit Islam and Muslims with them, and that He make them a role model for their comrades."


"As for those who have expressed their respect and admiration for Islam, and acknowledged that it is the truth, and demonstrated their support and sympathy for the Muslims and their causes, like George Galloway, Robert Fisk, and countless others, I say to them: Isn't it time you stopped sitting on the fence, and came over to the side of truth?"


"Finally, some will ask how we expect to attract converts to Islam after having spilled so much non-Muslim blood, albeit in defense of our religion, liberty, and lives. We might ask the same question of those who kill Muslims by the millions for the crime of being Muslim, and then foolishly hope to win their hearts and minds. But we will suffice by pointing to the sharp spike conversions to Islam after September eleventh, which, as we've mentioned, is giving the enemy many a sleepless night."

The American Dream is a Life of Debt, Debauchery and Doubt

"Meanwhile, it would be alleged by others that this message represents an unusual and suspect change in tone. It will be said: They used to say they want to slit the throats of the infidels, now they say they want to invite them to Islam?! Our reply is that our message has not changed, and that the mujahideen have always been the first to call to Islam, and that even though the defense of Islam and Muslims from the merciless, relentless, Crusader onslaught is our first priority, anyone who pays any attention to the messages of the leaders of the Jihad, like Sheikh Osama bin Laden and Sheikh Ayman Al-Zawahiri, may God protect them, will know that they have been consistent in inviting the Americans and other unbelievers to Islam, and impressing upon them that they want the best for them, and making it clear to all that we have no choice but to fight those who fight us, and that were the matters in our hands, we would prefer that all Americans and all the other unbelievers and their aggression abandon unbelief and accept the truth. Islam encourages us to invite even the most obstinate enemies, and give them a chance to repent, and save themselves from humiliation in this life, and painful punishment in the next.

"But what really is surprising is that some among us want to suffice with invitation alone, without resorting to self-defense, when the enemy insists upon aggression and wanton destruction.

"I have tasted both the darkness and ignorance of unbelief, and disobedience to my Creator, as well as the light and perception afforded by true faith in God and obedience to Him, and I assure you that there is no comparison, and that despite - or rather, because of - the atmosphere of battle in which we live, and the continuing conflict with the forces of the Crusaders and their hired hands, I thank God everyday for guiding me to Islam, and guiding me to join its victorious army, inshallah, for if not for His grace, I could very easily have been one of those unfortunate souls fighting the loosing battle for the other side, or blindly living the life of debt, debauchery, and doubt they call the American dream."


"I have discovered that true happiness is to be found in obedience to God's orders and prohibitions, and in the following of His Prophet, peace be upon him, and not in Western-style hedonism and immorality or amorality, nor in Eastern-style monasticism or cultist-like withdrawal from the world. And I can state with a confidence born out of experience and observation that as long as a person persists in unbelief and atheism, his or her pursuit of happiness will be exactly that - a pursuit, a never-ending search, which is guaranteed to bring him misery, if not in this life then in the next. By that, I mean to say that even if he does happen upon some degree of happiness today, it is guaranteed to be short-lived, ending at his death, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that eternal happiness is better than the fleeting delights of this world."

The Path of Death and Destruction

According to Sky News, a gunman shouting "Allah Akbar" gunned down a British tourist and wounded five other tourists in the Jordanian capital Amman. Source: Sky News

One has to wonder if Jordan will become a target for terrorists because of its diplomatic relationship with the West? Will things escalate in the restive country of Jordan as the global village apologists and appeasers fall into line with terror sponsoring states exporting their political ambitions on the unsuspecting west?

The Islamofacist Caliphate and the Islamists struggle for religious domination of the west and Arab moderates did not start with President Bush as the left leaning Washington DC political pundits and Islamic extremists like Adam Gadahn (the American spokesman for al-Qaeda) and Ayman al-Zawahiri (al-Qaeda’s Number 2) would like you to believe.

One might get confused if one reads the mainstream media rags, listens to political speeches of the liberal left, or, if one listens to extremist leadership. They all tend to use the same talking points wether you listen to (among others), Kerry, Murtha, Pelosi, Gadahn, al-Zawahire, or, if we break open the news as reported by the alphabet news services that we call Mainstream Media, or MSM for short.

Let us take a little history lesson from a grand jury indictment dated 06 November 1998, 3 years before the terrorists' hit on the World Trade Center.

The below indictment noted that Al Qaeda, Bin Laden's international terrorist group, forged alliances with the National Islamic Front in Sudan and with the government of Iran and with its associated group Hezbollah to "work together against their perceived common enemies in the West, particularly the United States."

Also noted, the indictment alleges that Bin Laden reached an agreement with the government of Iraq (specific date not provided) and tried to develop chemical weapons and attempted to obtain nuclear weapons components in 1993.

Conspiracy to Attack Defense Utilities of the United States

The Grand Jury charges:

Background: Al Qaeda

1. At all relevant times from in or about 1989 until the date of the filing of this Indictment, an international terrorist group existed which was dedicated to opposing non-Islamic governments with force and violence. This organization grew out of the "mekhtab al Khidemat" (the "Services Office") organization which had maintained (and continues to maintain) offices in various parts of the world, including Afghanistan, Pakistan (particularly in Peshawar) and the United States, particularly at the Alkifah Refugee Center - in Brooklyn. From in or about 1989 until the present, the group called itself "Al Qaeda" ("the Base"). From 1989 until in or about 1991, the group was headquartered in Afghanistan and Peshawar, Pakistan. In or about 1992, the leadership of Al Qaeda, including its "emir" (or prince) USAMA BIN LADEN the defendant, and its military command relocated to the Sudan. From in or about 1991 until the present, the group also called itself the "Islamic Army." The international terrorist group (hereafter referred to as "Al Qaeda") was headquartered in the Sudan from approximately 1992 until approximately 1996 but still maintained offices in various parts of the world. In 1996, USAMA BIN LADEN and Al Qaeda relocated to Afghanistan. At all relevant times, Al Qaeda was led by its "emir," USAMA BIN LADEN. Members of Al Qaeda pledged an oath of allegiance to USAMA BIN LADEN and Al Qaeda.

2. Al Qaeda opposed the United States for several reasons. First, the United States was regarded as "infidel" because it was not governed in a manner consistent with the group's extremist interpretation of Islam. Second, the United States was viewed as providing essential support for other "infidel" governments and institutions, particularly the governments of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, the nation of Israel and the United Nations, which were regarded as enemies of the group. Third, Al Qaeda opposed the involvement of the United states armed forces in the Gulf War in 1991 and in Operation Restore Hope in Somalia in 1992 and 1993. In particular, Al Qaeda opposed the continued presence of American military forces in Saudi Arabia (and elsewhere on the Saudi Arabian peninsula) following the Gulf war. Fourth, Al Qaeda opposed the United States Government because of the arrest, conviction and imprisonment of persons belonging to Al Qaeda or its affiliated terrorist groups, including Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman.

3. Al Qaeda has functioned both on its own and through some of the terrorist organizations that have operated under its umbrella, including: the Islamic Group (also known as "al Gamaa Islamia" or simply "Gamaa't"), led by co-conspirator Sheik Oxar Abdal Rahman; the al Jihad group based in Egypt; the "Talah e Fatah" ("Vanguards of conquest") faction of al Jibad, which was also based in Egypt, Which faction was led by co-conspirator Ayman al Zawahiri ("al Jibad"); Palestinian Islamic Jihad and a number of Jihad groups in other countries, including Egypt, the Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia, Eritrea, Kenya, Pakistan, Bosnia, Croatia, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, the Philippines, Tajikistan, Chechnya, Bangladesh, Kashmir and Azerbaijan. In February 1998, Al Qaeda joined forces with Gamaa't, Al Jihad, the Jihad Movement in Bangladesh and the "Jamaat ul Ulema e Pakistan" to issue a fatwah (an Islamic religious ruling) declaring war against American civilians worldwide under the banner of the "International Islamic Front for Jibad on the Jews and Crusaders."

4. Al Qaeda also forged alliances with the National Islamic Front in the Sudan and with the government of Iran and its associated terrorist group Hezbollah for the purpose of working together against their perceived common enemies in the West, particularly the United States. In addition, al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq.

5. Al Qaeda had a command and control structure which included a majlis al shura (or consultation council) which discussed and approved major undertakings, including terrorist operations.

6. Al Qaeda also conducted internal investigations of its members and their associates in an effort to detect informants and killed those suspected of collaborating with enemies of Al Qaeda.

7. From at least 1991 until the date of the filing of this Indictment, in the Sudan, Afghanistan and elsewhere out of the jurisdiction of any particular state or district, USAMA BIN LADEN, a/k/a "Usamah Bin-Muhammad Bin-Laden," a/k/a "Shaykh Usamah Bin-Laden," a/k/a "Mujahid Shaykh," a/k/a "Abu Abdallah," a/k/a "Qa Qa," the defendant, and a co-conspirator not named as a defendant herein (hereafter "Co-conspirator") who was first brought to and arrested in the Southern District of New York, and others known and unknown to the grand jury, unlawfully, willfully and knowingly combined conspired, confederated and agreed together and with each other to injure and destroy, and attempt to injure and destroy, national-defense material, national-defense premises and national-defense utilities of the United States with the intent to injure, interfere with and obstruct the national defense of the United states. Overt Acts

8. In furtherance of the said conspiracy, and to effect the illegal object thereof, the following overt acts, among others, were committed:

a. At various times from at least as early as 1991 until at least in or about February 1998, USAMA BIN LADEN, the defendant, met with Co-conspirator and other members of Al Qaeda in the Sudan, Afghanistan and elsewhere;

b. At various times from at least as early as 1991, USAMA BIN LADEN, and others known and unknown, made efforts to obtain weapons, including firearms and explosives, for Al Qaeda and its affiliated terrorist groups;

c. At various times from at least as early as 1991 USAMA BIN LADEN, and others known and unknown, provided training camps and guest houses in various areas, including Afghanistan and the Sudan, for the use of Al Qaeda and its affiliated terrorist groups;

d. At various times from at least as early as 1991, USAMA BIN LADEN, and others known and unknown, made efforts to produce counterfeit passports purporting to be issued by various countries and also obtained official passports from the Government of the Sudan for use by Al Qaeda and its affiliated groups;

e. At various times from at least as early as 1991, USAMA BIN LADEN, and others known and unknown, made efforts to recruit United States citizens to Al Qaeda in order to utilize the American citizens for travel throughout the Western world to deliver messages and engage in financial transactions for the benefit of Al Qaeda and its affiliated groups;

f. At various times from at least as early as 1991, USAMA BIN LADEN, and others known and unknown, made efforts to utilize non-Government organizations which purported to be engaged in humanitarian work as conduits for transmitting funds for the benefit of Al Qaeda and its affiliated groups;

g. At various times from at least as early as 1991, Co-conspirator and others known and unknown to the grand jury engaged in financial and business transactions on behalf of defendant USAMA BIN LADEN and Al Qaeda, including, but not limited to: purchasing land for training camps; purchasing warehouses for storage of items, including explosives; transferring funds between bank accounts opened in various names, obtaining various communications equipment, including satellite telephones and transporting currency and weapons to members of Al Qaeda and its associated terrorist organizations in various countries throughout the world;

h. At various times from in or about 1992 until the date of the filing of this Indictment, USAMA BIN LADEN and other ranking members of Al Qaeda stated privately to other members of Al Qaeda that Al Qaeda should put aside its differences with Shiite Muslim terrorist organizations, including the Government of Iran and its affiliated terrorist group Hezballah, to cooperate against the perceived common enemy, the United States and its allies;

i. At various times from in or about 1992 until the date of the filing of this Indictment, USAMA BIN LADEN and other ranking members of Al Qaeda stated privately to other members of Al Qaeda that the United States forces stationed on the Saudi Arabian peninsula, including both Saudi Arabia and Yemen, should be Attacked;

j. At various times from in or about 1992 until the date of the filing of this Indictment, USAMA BIN LADEN and other ranking members of Al Qaeda stated privately to other members of Al Qaeda that the United States forces stationed in the Horn of Africa, including Somalia, should be attacked;

k. Beginning in or about early spring 1993, Al Qaeda members began to provide training and assistance to Somali tribes opposed to the United Nations intervention in Somalia;
