Al Qaeda says order given for US attack far bigger than 9/11

DEBKAfile, 16 November 2008


DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources report that US president-elect Barack Obama, European and Russian heads of state in Washington for the G20 conference over the weekend were briefed about a probable early al Qaeda attack.

Obama and his team have been advised that a new al Qaeda strike is highly probable in the United States or against a key US target in Europe, North Africa or the Middle East.

DEBKA-Net-Weekly 372 of Nov. 14 disclosed that al Qaeda’s Yemen base, a reliable barometer for Osama bin Laden’s schemes, issued a Directive to All Fighters in Arabia on Nov. 9 presaging a major operation in the United States that will “change the political and economic world” and be “far bigger than 9/11.”

The notice said “the operation is very near” and “precise instructions were in the hands of the fighters, who are already on their way to America” armed with bin Laden’s orders. The pretext offered for the attack is the rejection by the US and Europe of al Qaeda’s four-year old truce offer whose original pre-condition was the withdrawal of their armies from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The day after the new president’s election, al Qaeda issued a little-noticed statement declaring Barack Obama a murtad, i.e. an apostate whose betrayal of Islam is judged the most heinous. Believers have the duty to execute a murtad unlike other non-believers whose death sentence is optional.

Thursday night, Nov. 14, Central Intelligence Director Gen. Michael Hayden said:”Al Qaeda, operating from its safe haven in Pakistan’s tribal areas, remains the most clear and present danger to the United States.” He was addressing a Washington think-tank.

“Today, virtually every major terrorist threat that my agency is aware of has threads back to the tribal areas. Whether it is command and control, training, direction, money, capabilities, there is a connection to the FATA (Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas.)”

Hayden also mentioned Yemen and Somalia as important al Qaeda theaters of operation.

In private, most heads of the intelligence agencies fighting al Qaeda admit that an attack on the United States or major American interest outside is only a matter of time.


excerpt from Barack Obama’s CBS interview

16 November 2008


I think it is a top priority for us to stamp out al Qaeda once and for all. And I think capturing or killing bin Laden is a critical aspect of stamping out al Qaeda. He is not just a symbol, he’s also the operational leader of an organization that is planning attacks against US targets.

Re-killed Ayman al-Zawahiri is back in ‘audio message,’ taunting Obama

The elusive, whack-a-mole al-Qaeda #2 is back again (from the dead)! Ayman al-Zawahiri criticized U.S. President-elect Barack Obama in an ‘audio message’ posted on the Internet, calling him dishonorable and a servant of whites, the Associated Press reported. The second-in-command of Islamic militant network al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has called on Muslims to harm “criminal” America. You just can’t keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, especially when Bush needs a terror attack/martial law before January 20.

  2. The last-chance power grab occurring before our eyes is exactly the kind of thing we should expect from not only the monomaniacal elite, but more importantly, their demonic controllers, who know their time is short. Staunch materialists and “rationalists” may scoff (to their increasing peril), but for a generation, these spirit puppet masters have started fire after fire and done their best to block all the exits. They have misled most of mankind and filled the earth with depravity and violence. They have exploited our weaker tendencies, and slyly conspired with our fallen nature to drive us to the precipice of societal and planetary breakdown. Soon, the UN, that ultimate imposter, will be used as the golem/avatar which will draw the attention of most of the planet’s inhabitants away from the impending establishment of the only true Source of permanent relief form our deep wounds and ills. But for those who wish to gain insight, there is a provision…simply petition the true God for direction, and then look for those who are doing his work. Clues: entire families, going door-to-door, volunteering their time in a global organization devoted to educating their fellowman about our incoming world government – God’s Kingdom! There is only one Life-Giver, and it’s time to reject all of the barriers which have been put between us and Him, and accept the friendship He extends to us all. There is no time to lose.

  3. If bibi ladin had dressed like a man, he would be fighting like a man,. now he dresses in clothes and nobody knows what is under those clothes, then he has his partiners in trousers near him ready to do the job on him or for him.

    bibi ladin, be a man and dare your enemy to meat over the atlantic and fight there where there will be no civil loss of lives. but you are not a man enough, you will keep hiding under your clothes…. think how many lives you have taken, do you have children…. think over. Are you a traversite? that would explain why you go around in clothes.. be a man

  4. Pepe, two wrongs NEVER ever make a right.

    The Golden Rule

    “That which is hateful to you do not do to another … the rest (of the Torah) is all commentary, now go study.”

    – Rabbi Hillel

    There is a solution: end poverty.

    World peace starts with each of us being peaceful, that includes within our own families.

  5. After the AlQaeda strike, will we then be bold enough to air-raid the western Pakistan border and other safe havens?

  6. It is just laughable how some people never learn anything, or how some others keep using lies to push their crime schemes. Here they are some points for both kinds of people:

    1) Al qeada is the Muslim arm of the CIA acting in many countries to disestablish regions and governments…

    2) Bin Laden is a creation of the USA through the CIA and he is a good friend of the Bush clan…

    3) 9/11 was an inside job and is totally proven by many experts…

    4) After 9/11 there was no other attack because no one was against us beside the bush-cheney-neocons team…

    5) Now that they, the bush-cheney-neocons gang, are loosing control of the USA government, Al qeda started to send messages against Obama’s person, his government and the USA; they just putt out a warning about another massive attack…

    6) The bush government didn’t do much against bin laden, but instead invaded Iraq to control and suck all the oil possible of that country while here at home imposed high gas prices, which bay the way, now that they are about to go out of government they are going down; do you remember the secret meetings that cheney had at the beginning of their government with the oil industry executives? These criminals do not care about America as a Nation or country; they only care about America as a business enterprise for their group’s interest; does the bailing out of speculators and bankers rings a bell?…

    7) Fear, terror and guns are their real power upon us, the people, that’s why they putt out 9/11, but by having elected Obama, the people have showed to them that we are clear who they are and what they are up to; of curse there are many who believe what they want them to believe; like some of those writing comments here, and of curse they are not going to go away with out a fight….

    8) What those wanting change need to remember in this time of transition and danger is that our enemies are in the house not out there. The enemy is the greedy elite that is loosing control of power and will try anything to keep it; be ready and do not fear eventually they will be defeated by the real brave and the real free: We the people of the USA….

  7. Better pay attention to what’s going on around you. No hype or fear here, this is real stuff. Not the time to criticize the media, but time to be aware of the dangers that America faces. All of these Shi’a muslim psycho paths have guns, and would love to put the bullets in you. They have bombs and would love to drop them on your house. It is time for America to forge together and get everyone’s fingers pointed in the same direction, which is not at each other.

    Also, not all muslims are psycho, just these guys in particular.

  8. I noticed its alway Zawahiri sending out messages these days….Osama may be dead……and anyone that thought that because Obama is now president elect, that all terrorists will drop their weapons and bake cupcakes has once again misunderstood, and underestimated the relentlessness of the murderous muslim terrorists….they will attack harder now knowing Obama is a left wing, appeasing, talking to terrorists kind of guy……at least with bush they were on the run and scared, but now Iran, and all terrorists have been given a big confidence boost, and will test Obama who has very little skill or experience dealing with heads of state, and worldwide islamic terrorism. I have more fear now that Obama will be at the helm…

  9. Country First

    I think Al Qaeda needs to read this portion of Obama’s victory speech before they start picking on our “house negro”:

    “And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of our world – our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand. To those who would tear this world down – we will defeat you.”

    Someone better tell al-Zawahiri that just because we McCain people didn’t vote for Obama, we have guns and bibles, and we’re not afraid to use them against al Qaeda. Politics stops at the waters edge.

  10. The right wing extremists are at it again. The bush administration hasn’t needed another attack since 9-11 as that did the job in getting the war agenda for the oil and defense industries. But if they are to gain power again they will have to carry out an event as devastating as 9-11 in order to put fear back in the minds of the American people. And in doing so will destroy our country entirely.
