MOST especially, whenever a highly volatile situation arises, it is always prudent to listen to your gut instincts and to proceed from there. To wit, tune out the ‘white noise’, ‘mainstream’ media, political deflections and jibber jabber, then start looking at what makes the most sense. Of course, the damnable facts will seep forward, albeit without the help – even as they actively hinder the truth from coming out – of those who should be upfront from the get go. No matter.
Now, bear in mind that the shock factor always takes time to wear off, and this is why it is easier for media denizens/politicians/leftists to bob, weave and punt from sticky ‘areas of concern’. Again, tune the bastards out.
So, where does one commence the ‘process’? If one has the ears of reliable contacts – those who have yet to steer wrong – it is prudent to listen up. As such, this blogger/investigative journalist has been apprised of some interesting tidbits. One such dropping came from a highly reliable contact in NYC, the other from a ‘birdie’ in Washington, D.C. Hmm. It was hinted – on both ends – there was much chatter among the jihadi subset, concentrated in the Brooklyn, NY ‘nabe alongside Atlantic Avenue. Makes sense. This section of Brooklyn produced/groomed (in tandem with other neighborhoods too) the 1993 World Trade Center bombers, plus lent their (jihadi) hands to other ‘events’. This is a fact. In addition, Jersey City was pointed out as well – as an ‘area of interest/concern’ – as a font of info, and those chattering reached the ears of the aforementioned Washington, D.C. contact. But this by no means indicates that other Muslim-concentrated cities/communities didn’t pitch in. Not at all.
Clearly, the biggest agencies/guns are working the case 24/7 and know what’s what. Yet, if past is prologue, you may not want to rely on them to offer up the truth. Just a suggestion.
In relation to the above, it is imperative to study The Opening of Jihad on U.S. Soil for several reasons, least of which is to understand how the so-called ‘big guns’ often fail to do their due diligence, for ‘this or that’ (political/ideological) reason. So, even though we are being told that the FBI and all relevant agencies are ‘on the case’, well, it depends what the meaning of ‘on’ is. The following is a section from the above link. Extrapolate within.
Authorities in Washington say their investigation so far gives them no reason to believe Navy Yard shooting suspect Aaron Alexis, 34, is linked to organized terror even though just two days earlier, al-Qaida’s leader had called for a “lone wolf” attack on Washington.
The attack Monday at the Washington Navy Yard left 13 dead, including Alexis, a military contractor, authorities said. Authorities said the motive was unclear and authorities even still wondered whether the gunman was alone, or whether there were others involved.
And at the Washington Free Beacon, a report from Bill Gertz confirmed that several online jihadists were linking Islamists to the violence.
He reported, “Several jihadists wrote in Arabic on Twitter shortly after the shooting began around 8:20 a.m. ET that it appeared to be motivated by Islamist extremism. Some used the hashtag ‘Al Qaeda’ to report news of the shooting.”
He continued, “Some jihadists said the shooting was part of global jihad but none indicated inside knowledge of the killings, suggesting the comments are probably speculation or propaganda.”
He reported one jihadist on Twitter “said the attacks took place close to the 12th anniversary of the al-Qaida attacks on New York and Washington and thus appeared to be linked to Islamism.”
District of Columbia Mayor Vincent C. Gray affirmed that there is no evidence to link the attack to Islamist terror, but he told the Washington Post he could not rule it out.
While Gertz noted there was no immediate claim of responsibility from known terror groups, he reported a jihadist named Idaat Amniyah (@abdallahsaker) who claimed to be part of the Middle East group Fatah al-Islam stated that the shooting showed “we have moved from the defensive to the offensive stage” of global jihad.
Gertz identified another jihadist, Abu-Osama al-Muwahhid (@ab_osama1), who tweeted praise for the attack.
Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said for a time police were seeking two others as possible suspects, but one was found and ruled out. The third person still remained of interest to authorities.
She reported “multiple pieces of information” raised the prospect of more than one suspect involved.
The Debkafile further said that the participation of more than one gunman would point to a coordinated attack.
The target was a base where about 3,000 service members are assigned, and it’s only a couple of miles from the Capitol.
Larry O’Daniel, a member of the 250,000-strong National Vietnam and Gulf War Veterans Coalition’s Counter Terror Committee, said his group concluded that Zawahiri has great influence on al-Qaida’s tactics.
Noting that Gertz had reported as early as January that an al-Qaida website was lobbying for attacks on the U.S., O’Daniel said the warning was “strikingly similar” to Zawahiri’s statements.
“In February, WND reported that CIA asset ‘Reza Kahlili’ alleged Iran was targeting American utilities including cell towers, power utilities, water supplies, high voltage towers, and public transportation,” O’Daniel’s report said.
“Also in January, Mohammad al Zawahiri, younger brother to Ayman, echoed the jihadist call for action against a number of countries, roughly equivalent to those mentioned later in August 2013, who helped France as outlined in the Gertz article. Zawahiri asked for help from ‘all Muslim brothers’ as part of Quranic duty,” he said.
The report noted Zawahiri did give specific instructions.
O’Daniel’s report said while some interpreted Zawahiri’s call for lone wolf attacks as a sign of weakness, his coalition found that al-Qaida’s forte is a decentralized leadership group “providing aid, resources, guidance, and other assets for localized allied groups who carry out reconnaissance and actual attacks.”
“History shows that 19 well-trained men killed almost 3000 persons on 9/11/01. A small well-trained group came close to killing many times that number in the first WTC attack in early 1993. Al Qaida uses well-trained small groups. They are good in putting in place sleeper cells with no prior law enforcement exposure to slip under security radar,” the report said.
For good measure, let our memories meander back to the shooting at Fort Hood, you know, by the ‘soldier for Allah’ – currently given a death sentence – even though the motive (by the media, pols and the courts too) is still ascribed as ‘workplace violence’! Mind you, this is even after Islamist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu akbar!” (“Allah is greater!”) and brutally murdered 14 people (including an unborn baby) and injured 30 others at Fort Hood, Texas.
It gets worse. Obama Inc. has been – and still is – paying jizya to the ‘soldier for Allah’. In effect, with the above as rock solid background info, why would anyone believe the ‘official’ reports on this (more than likely) jihadi massacre? Can’t think of a valid reason.
Oh yeah, and ‘the voices’ – in the captured shooter’s head – made him do it, as the narrative starts to spin. Never mind the fact that he wasn’t declared ‘unfit for duty’, even as they start to blame the ‘event’ on his mental illness. You got that?
This blogger prefers to listen to her ‘ears on the ground’, plus well honed instincts. What say you?
UPDATE: ‘STAND DOWN’ orders alleged…why??
UPDATE: DEBKAfile Intelliegence
NBC News quoting law enforcement officials revealed Thursday that Aaron Alexis, who murdered 12 people in the Washington Navy Yard this week, created a webpage in the name of “Mohammed Salem.” The officials said “he never did anything with it” and they found nothing else that “might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even Islam.” So how would they describe the deadly attack on the Navy facility – if not “violent jihad?”
