Possible Al-Qaida Hit List Targets Specific Americans


An al-Qaida-linked website has posted a potential hit list of targets that include names and photos of several U.S. officials and business leaders, calling for terrorists to target these Americans in their own homes, NBC New York has learned.

The FBI has sent out a new intelligence bulletin to law enforcement agencies, warning that this new web-based threat, while not a specific plot, is very detailed. The bulletin said the list includes leaders “in government, industry and media.”

The FBI has notified those individuals who are named.

NBC New York will not identify them or their companies. The list includes Wall Street firms, political leaders, leaders with think tanks and contractors who do business with the military.

Way back when the Iranian Ayatollah put out a fatwa on Salman Rushdie for simply writing about those portions of the Koran that Mohammad admitted Satan’s demons had inspired him to write, 53 people died.
Individuals, not any organization, took it upon themselves to try to kill Mr. Rushdie.
As you can learn, if you read up on the collateral damage, their ”aim” was far from true.
But they acted out of a belief that, by carrying out a death fatwa, they were assured an afterlife in paradise.

I can see the same thing happening here with whoever is on that list.
Not only will all those folks become moving targets, but everyone near them are acceptable deaths by these zealots.

Is the FBI doing anything more than informing these folks?
Will they get taxpayer-backed security until all Muslim zealots are gone?
Or are these folks on their own?

If one of these mentioned are killed then crush the mosques that sponsored this…

The screen capture I saw of one of the pages had photos of men in uniform.
I only recognized a couple of them.
But it looks like the most likely place to find them would be the Pentagon.

And looky here at the news this AM………..

Yonathan Melaku, 22, was carrying suspected bomb making materials and pro-al-Qaeda literature was arrested in Arlington National Cemetery.
Sources told ABC News that the backpack contained what was believed to be ammonium nitrate and spent ammunition for an automatic weapon.
Statements were found in a notebook [in the backpack] that contained mostly notes for a financial class. There was also was a page containing words “al qaeda,” “Taliban rules,” “mujahidin” and “defeated coalition forces.”

Melaku allegedly told police that there were other “devices” in the area and also the location of a vehicle.

Police were investigating a vehicle, a red 2011 Nissan, that contained materials authorities were examining to determine if it was a bomb or other weapon. The possible device was reported neutralized, according to law enforcement spokesmen at the scene.

Melaku was arrested last month for smashing windows and stealing valuables from 27 cars in Leesburg, Va. He was charged with four counts of grand larceny although the police did not find any discernible ideological motive.

Nothing to see here, move along….

Edited to add more details on the suspect:
“…..Yonathan Melaku, a Lance Corporal Marine corps reservist who lives in Virginia and who is Muslim, has been identified as the suspect in custody….
