News: AQ, tech, illegals, military/blogs, & Muslims

Have you ever given any thought to a 'three-dimensional' website? Look at it this way, we no longer live in a world where the net is a 'flat earth' development. To give you a peek inside this fact, Douglas Farah has written a very informative and chilling article.

At the Counterterrorism Blog, you will find just about any type of news that we are NOT hearing about on the news. Especially the type of news which we should all be looking for to keep our country safe. I suppose that could be because of the elections, but you would think our survival would be an election year topic. Oh well.

Jihadists Move to Encryption on Internet Sights.

...Today’s Washington Post carries an extensive look at the radicalization of two Islamists from the state of Georgia who were filming potential targets in Washington, D.C.

Much of the process took place on line, as did the radicalization of an Egyptian businessman who sponsored the trip of combatants to Iraq based on the Internet statements and broadcasts by Yousef al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. [Continue reading.]
So, they think catching illegal aliens is too hard of a task? Check out this story from Jayson Javitz over at Wizbang!
Dragnet.

...'They think they're pretty much home free once they get up here,' said Bill Botts, of the Border Patrol's Gulport, Mississippi, station. But Operation Uniforce, as the two-week crackdown started Jan. 13 is called, 'is pretty much a shocker for the [alien] smuggling organizations.'

More than 300 illegal immigrants and alien smugglers had been arrested as of Tuesday, just over a week into the operation. [Continue reading.]
Now I will share with you some articles and their links and who they are written by in groupings. That is because there are too many of them! lol

First I would like to start with Michael Yon. This first post of his is Moment of Truth in Iraq, a book that Michael has written, and it is very good. I've read the first chapter of Danger Close (it is online), and you might like to read it also. He is one of the citizen journalists who tells it as it is, not the way we would like to hear it. I like that. It shows me respect, because he trusts that I can make up my own mind.

CORRECTION: It has been brought to my attention that Michael's book is Titled "Danger Close." Jon is correct. You may purchase it only at Michael's site here. Thank you Jon for catching that for me. *blush*

His next post is News Flash: Dragon Skin. This one is about body armor. Next is "Commanders Update #9, Commander’s Update #9 JAN 08, By LTC. James Crider. Then there is "General Lee Comes Home, Part 2, Stryker Dubbed ‘General Lee’ Rejuvenated, By Ann Roosevelt, for Defense Daily. After that one is this one where he was profiled by the NY Times, "News Flash: Frontline Blogger With a Soldier’s Eyes. They actually did a good job. Then finally, there is a collection of Michael's writings: Archives: Table of Contents.

This one is not technically a blogger (Former Ambassador to the USA, John Bolton), but he has written a very chilling warning to President Bush, Condi, and the new president of the USA in the Wall Street Journal's opinion and commentary section. The title of this article is "North Korea's True Colors." Read it! Another article which they printed is "The Legacy, Bush of Arabia. This U.S. president is the most consequential the Middle East has ever seen. by FOUAD AJAMI." It is a refreshing look at both President Bush (whom I have lost much hope of having anything positive get done) and the Iraqi people. It is a good read.

For the following articles from CentCom, I will put them in list form. There are many good articles!
Here are six links to YouTube videos from Blackfive: This video is 1:16 minutes long. The title is "Sgt. Giles." This one is "Arab Jabour: An Introduction," and it is 2:45 minutes. This next one is titled "Arab Jabour: Terrain Denial." The next three are "Surge Plus One: Doura," "Robin Williams in Kuwait" and "Crazy I-Ranians threaten US warships with Jihad." Now I have links you may be interested in reading.

Next I have for you some articles from ACT! for America which is a great site to go to find patriotic people keeping an eye on legislation, jihadism and other news that we can appreciate. They now have chapters that are posted on their website. You can also receive e-mails from them, if you wish.

This next news article is an interview between National Review Online and M. Zuhdi Jasser. This is the third part of the article. The title of this portion of the interview is "We Need a Hero, Looking toward 2008 and beyond." Mr. Jasser has also had a press release, "FBI Director's Community Leadership Award given to Zuhdi Jasser." One more article here. It is written by Electa Draper at the Denver Post. The name of the article is "Moderate Muslim view outshouted by Islamists." Oh, those so understanding and tolerant libs. You may read about him and keep up with him at AIFD. This acronym stands for American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

American Congress for Truth is a very fine site. It is run by conversatives who just happen to be black. This is an amazing site, and you really should add it to your sidebar. For example, they are on top of this internet problem which I started this post off with.
Terrorism Probe Points to Reach Of Web Networks.

In April 2005, police swarmed the U.S. Capitol to confront an erratic Australian man, carrying two suitcases, who they feared was a suicide bomber. After blowing up one of the bags, officers realized he was harmless.

The police never noticed the two nervous young men on a nearby sidewalk filming the Capitol during the standoff. But they might have been the real threat, according to newly released documents.

The men, ultraconservative Muslims from Georgia, were making surveillance videos that could help extremists plan "some kind of terrorist attack," as one man later acknowledged, according to court documents disclosed last week. One of their videos was sent to a notorious al-Qaeda publicist in London, authorities said. [Continue reading.]
Does that give anyone pause? It does me.
