The Cycle of Warnings Has Ended

Sultan Mehmud Ghaznawi with his lover Ayaz greets the SheykhLast Saturday Northeast Intelligence Network posted an interview with Al Qaeda leader Abu Dawood. According to the report, Abu Dawood summoned Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir by cell phone, and the two met on the outskirts of Kabul, at the tomb of Sultan Mehmoud Ghaznawi, on September 12th.

Abu Dawood said that America has received its last warning from Al Qaeda. The mujahideen are poised to launch a major new attack, this time with chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons smuggled across the border from Mexico.

I have no idea if this interview is genuine; I can find only the original Northeast Intelligence Network report and its derivatives on the web, and have no independent confirmation of it.

The whole thing could be completely bogus. It could well be disinformation; a taqiyya operation designed to tie up American intelligence assets in a snipe hunt.

But if there’s any accuracy to it, we can expect something big to happen in the next few days or weeks.

Some excerpts from the interview:

America is playing with the security of Muslims all over the world, now it is our turn again. Our brothers are ready to attack inside America. We will breach their security again. There is no timeframe for our attack inside America; we can do it any time.

…a bigger attack than September 11th 2001. Brother Adnan [el Shukrijumah] will lead that attack, Inshallah… He is an American and a friend of Muhammad Atta, who led 9/11 attacks five years ago. We call him “Jaffer al Tayyar” [“Jafer the Pilot”]; he is very brave and intelligent. Bush is aware that brother Adnan has smuggled deadly materials inside America from the Mexican border. Bush is silent about him, because he doesn’t want to panic his people.


The American Muslims are like a human shield for our enemy; they must leave New York and Washington… We have a different plan for the next attack. You will see. Americans will hardly find out any Muslim names, after the next attack. Most of our brothers are living in Western countries, with Jewish and Christian names, with passports of Western countries. This time, someone with the name of Muhammad Atta will not attack inside America, it would be some David, Richard or Peter.

…I am saying that Muslims must leave America, but we can attack America anytime. Our cycle of warnings has been completed, now we have fresh edicts from some prominent Muslim scholars to destroy our enemy, this is our defending of Jihad; the enemy has entered in our homes and we have the right to enter in their homes, they are killing us, we will kill them.

  1. If only Muslims would listen and leave.

    Then their brothers in al-Qaeda can attack us all they like, but at least we won’t have to worry about our backs.

    Militant Muslims to Mecca, now!

    Then, once your maniac co-religionists strike -with some kind of WMD- we’ll be able to clean house in the Ka’aba for real.

    Bring it on, Islamo-nutjobs.

    You have 10-20 A.Q. Khan nukes, we have 10,000-20,000.

    I like them odds.

  2. These treats are in themselves a kind of terror.

    I dont think al-Qaeda follows any normal logic; as in first make treats and then attack. I think they are constantly making treats, constantly planing to attack and constantly trying to inspire Muslims in the west to attack.

    So I would think that Americans and everyone else are allways in danger of attacks. No more or no less now.

  3. I think the underlying messege of what he says is:

    To Mexico:
    Al-Qaeda has a lot of dangeruss weapons in Mexico, but Mexico is not our target USA is. Mexico should be very happy about this and not do anything to offend us.

    To Americans:
    You are doomed, and the danger is coming from Mexico. Beware of your borders and what comes across it. And dont worry about arabs at all.

    To Marginalised Mexican-Americans:
    We are like you. We crossed the border at night. We fight the same fight. Come join us.

    In this he is trying to create 3 things.

    1. Make Marginalised and troupled Mexican-Americans sympathetic to al-Qaeda and Islam.

    2. Make Americans more nervous about the Mexican border and Mexicans. And thereby hoping to Marginalies more Mexicans in America.

    3. Create general fear about everyone and everything.

    Does this sound completly crazy ?

  4. Well, if they live up to their recent “successes”, I don’t think you have much to worry about. Perhaps this is more wishful thinking and boasting than any real threat.
    BTW, how many muslims are there in Mexico? Anybody like to hazard a guess?

  5. Al Qaida is in tatters, desperate for relevance, reduced to using empty threats as instigation. They are hoping they can stir up conflict based upon nothing more than their reputation, and record of past achievements.

    They are not the problem. The problem is Iran, with Venezuela and N. Korea as adjunct problems. China and Russia are providing diplomatic cover for Iran and North Korea, which keeps anyone from putting meaningful pressure on them.

    Venezuela is just a few years away from reproducing Zimbabwe’s amazing trajectory of success.

  6. I seem to be the only one to even be considering this – and I concede that it is the less likely of the scenarios – but what if it’s true? The little bit of background checking I did seem to point to this being at least a legitimate source, though the al Qaeda guy might just be lying through his teeth. Nevertheless, I think I am going to wait until his statement about Bin Laden pans out (that he will be releasing a tape within the next two weeks) before I make any judgements.
    I know al Qaeda makes empty threats on a regular basis, but doesn’t this seem a bit…different than before? I mean they are giving a timetable, locations, warnings to muslims to leave, a legitimate means of cover they are using (the Christian/Jewish name thing), and claiming that within the next few weeks we will see an attack bigger than 9/11.

    Once again, it’s quite likely it’s all nonsense, hot air spouted by a nutjob just to try and scare the West, but I will reserve judgement for the time being. Moreover, it’s certain that parts of what he is saying are lies; if they had the ability to strike us ‘at any time,’ they would have done so on 9/11 without a doubt. They also were not giving us a ‘grace period’ of any sorts using their ‘cycle of warnings.’ But I see that as potentially their means of maintaining legitimacy for the length of time between 9/11 and this future event.

    I don’t know enough to make a call either way of course, but I do hope that the higher ups have their eye on this.

  7. Regardless if the attack comes in the next few weeks, or it comes during the next year, or few years, regardless if the attack doesn’t occur until a decade or two has passed, regardless of all that, the salient fact is that the attack WILL COME.

    And what do we do then?

    Or, rather, more sanely, what do we do NOW, so as to forestall that eventuality.

    I was in NYC a month ago, and as I was strolling along Fifth Avenue, I couldn’t help but sense, that this entire city is living on borrowed time.

    So of course the attack will come. Our enemies tried to kill upwards of FIFTY THOUSAND PEOPLE ON 9/11. They had to think the ultimate death toll of some 3,000 people to be way lower than their estimates. So sooner or later, our enemies are going to successfully target a major American city. And FULLY work out their satanic will. Perhaps the enemy will destroy several simultaneously.

    It’s coming. It’s coming.

    The enemy is deadly serious on killing as many of us as they possibly can.

  8. David S. —

    No, we’ve heard the same thing before, almost word-for-word. “Muslims: get out of New York and Washington; an attack is coming within a week.” And it didn’t happen.

    Could be:

    1. They were blowing smoke.
    2. They tried an attack, but it was foiled in a way that never became public knowledge; or
    3. They have fantasies about these things, and really believe them.

    Who knows? But we’ll find out soon enough if this one has any substance.

  9. If only his statement were the “last warning”, we wouldn’t have to listen to any more of his boring sermons.

    It won’t be al-Qaeda’s last warning. Not by a long shot. They will talk and talk and talk and talk…

    He’s saying a lot of bluster and wishful thinking. Al-Qaeda members use murder to punctuate their sermons; they’re exhibitionists of murder. Not everybody talks so much as they kill.

  10. Intimidation is the coin of their realm. If they can’t hit us physically, they’ll try to get inside our heads with threats.

    You know, these guys are sometimes their own worst enemies. If they would just shut the hell up, nobody would have noticed by 2050 that they had taken over Europe! But now, even the Europeans are waking up to that possibility.

    And fighting the U.S.! That can’t have turned out like bin Laden and Mullah Omar imagined. If they were smart, they would lay off the U.S. and concentrate on easier targets. (Europe, Africa and Central Asia.)

    BTW, I just launched a site devoted to this topic here:
