Seven arrested in Miami on terrorism charges.

Posted by Tim B. on 06/22/2006 at 09:24 PM
    1. I wonder if those arrested come from a broad strata of American society?

    1. Just kids having fun apparently.

    1. #1, kcom: well yes and no:
      The (federal) official told The Associated Press the alleged plotters were mainly Americans with no apparent ties to al-Qaida or other foreign terrorist organizations. He spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt news conferences planned for Friday in Washington and Miami.

      Residents living near the warehouse said the men taken into custody described themselves as Muslims and had tried to recruit young people to join their apparently militaristic group.
      The residents said FBI agents spent several hours in the neighborhood showing photos of the suspects and seeking information. They said the men, who appeared to be in their teens or 20s, had lived in the area about a year.
      The men slept in the warehouse, said Tashawn Rose, 29. “They would come out late at night and exercise. It seemed like a military boot camp that they were working on there. They would come out and stand guard.’‘
      She talked to one of the men about a month ago: “They seemed brainwashed. They said they had given their lives to Allah.’‘
      Rose said the men tried to recruit her younger brother and nephew for a karate class. “It was weird,’’ she said.
      Benjamin Williams, 17, said the group had young children with them sometimes. Sometimes, he added, the men “would cover their faces. Sometimes they would wear things on their heads, like turbans.’‘
      Xavier Smith, who attends the nearby United Christian Outreach, said the men would often come by the church and ask for water.
      “They were very private,’’ said Smith, 33. “The spoke with like an accent, sort of a Jamaican accent.’’

      And Gillian will meet me like a brother would.
      I think I remember but it’s twice as good.
      Like how cool the rum is from a silver tray.
      I thirst to be thirsty In Guantanamo Bay.


      I lay on the lalo ‘till I’m lobster red.
      I still feel the motion here at home in bed.
      I tell you it’s hard for me to stay away.
      You ain’t been ‘till you been high in Guantanamo Bay.

    1. AP: The alleged plotters were mainly Americans with no apparent ties to al-Qaida… 
      Just some more Lone Nuts acting on their own just to have a little fun to pass the time. Here are just a few more (out of many)examples of Lone Nuts from a broad stratum of society:
      3/23/03 Sgt. Hasan Akbar (American) killed Major Gregory Stone and Capt. Christopher Seifert, wounded 14 other US soldiers in Iraq. Akbar had attended a Saudi-financed mosque in South Central Los Angeles. Declared by the Army a Lone Nut/28 October, 2002 J. Muhammed and Solvo, arraigned for the murder of at least 10 innocent men women and children in the Washington D. C. area. They had a lab top, global tracking system, expensive guns in car. Known to have flown all over the USA and to have own travel agent. Declared lone nuts./4 July, 2002, Hadayet, an Egyptian, heavily armed, killed some people at El Al LAX airport and was declared by the FBI, less than an hour after the attack, to be a Lone Nut. Later the FBI added that he may have been despondent. (He owned a Jaguar and a Mercedes, enough to make anyone distraught enough to grab pistols and a knife to kill a few Jews. But what really depressed him was the American Flag his neighbor put up after Sept. 11)./  23 May, 2002, P. Gott, a practicing Muslim, carried a Quran and a shotgun into Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans and shot a US Department of Defense employee. Declared a Lone Nut./22 December, 2001, R. Reid, shoebomber, classified initially as a Lone Nut and a Bit Eccentric, until the Israelis fingered him./31 Oct, 1999, Ahmed (aka Bubba Biff)crashes Flight 990 into US waters. Declared a Lone Nut./23 Feb., 1997,  Ali Hassan Abu Kamal shoots up the Empire State Building, kills, and is declared a Depressed Lone Nut./1 March, 1994, Rashi Baz murders Jewish students on the Brooklyn Bridge. Declared to have acted alone except for help from Bassam Reyati,  who admits concealing evidence and gets 5 years probation and a $1000 fine./23 January 1993, Mir Aimal Kasi kills and wounds CIA employees. Declared a Lone Nut./1991 El Sayed A Nossair murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane. The murderer (unknown at the time) was declared a Lone Nut by the FBI. Later Nossair was tied to the WTC bombing in 1993.

    1. This psychosis called islamism, must be added to the other forms of psychoses, such as schizophrenia, paranoia, bipolar disorder, and involutional psychotic reactions, where no brain change was detectable with available tools.

      Unfortunately this psychosis is highly contagious, and is spread from human to human, much like tuberculosis, or leprosy.

      Treatment of these cases should be, and in this case (islamism) must be, isolation, until death, for it seems there is no cure.

    1. Islam has been popular in African-American society for decades. Remember Malcolm X? I’m not sure where all the surprise at the African-Americanness of these terrorist suspects is coming from. As well, Liberty City has been a racially troubled neighborhood in Miami for decades (the Miami Riots of 1980, that disrupted my last year of high school, started in Liberty City), and there are certain Islamic sects and offshoots in Miami that run the gamut from militant to cultic. But well, it’s possible this was just a meeting of the local Lone Nuts Club and the white members failed to show up that day.

Like all scum sucking low life criminals, terrorists etc. will have their collective grubby hands out for social sercurity.  If someone is arrested on terrorism charges and they are on welfare and it is some WANKER Jihad BULLSHIT.  Stop all welfare payments and let a Muslim charity feed the Fuckers and their parasitic progeny.

    1. Now. Now.  Don’t get all excited.  These are just kids who don’t know any better.  They wouldn’t have turned to terrorism if they hadn’t been terribly oppressed in the racist devil country.  We need to sit down with them and talk things out…see what they are upset about and all.  Think about the root causes, which are bound to be the fault of white crackers of U-ro-peen descent.  The Bush boys, perhaps?  Jeb is oppressin’ ‘em on the state level and George is oppressing ‘em on the federal level.  What else were they to do but rebel by blowing up the Sear’s Tower?  Perfectly understandable.

    1. Speaking of root causes:  how come no one wants to know the root cause of my growing hatred of Islam?  Why are my sensitivities not considered?

      I can remember a time when calling someone PC was making a derogatory remark; PC meant “privileged character”, as in “he thinks he’s a…”.  Seems the meaning hasn’t changed after all.
      I’m pig sick of it.

    1. Its racism, plain and simple. The fact that the common denominator in planned attacks on London, NYC, Toronto, Paris, Melbourne, Sydney, Bali and now Miami is that all those involved happened to be Muslim, is purely irrelevant.

    1. Thanks, tfm, it’s always fun to take a walk on the deranged side of the street. For a group of people, all-knowing and all-understanding, who have their fingers on the pulse of the nation, the Kos Kids are woefully uninformed (misinformed?). And there speling and sintax is simple atroshus. My favorite from that thread:

      Since, I really question whether this guy is actually a military officer, I suppose the point is mute.

    1. From some of their names, it sounds like they’re Haitian, or Haitian-American. Andrea would know better if Liberty City has a lot of Haitians.

      This black Muslim thing is troubling. Back in Chicago we used to just laugh about Louis Farrakhan and his Fruit of Islam (or bow-tie muthafukkers, as they say on The Wire). But since 9/11 it seems like it’s only a matter of time before one group of them, hooking up with al Q. for the glory of killing some white devils, succeeds in carrying out a real attack.

    1. Guys, you’re not thinking this through.

      Planning to blow up the Sears Tower is just a relatively enthusiastic form of dissent. In fact, you might call it the highest form of dissent.

      And dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

      So, commutatively (or is it transitively?), killing your fellow Americans is really the highest form of patriotism.

      These men are patriots. And the Shrub administration is questioning their patriotism! In cold blood. Ruthlessly. In the broad light of day. Their patriotism has been questioned.

      These arrests are nothing less than a brutal, pitiless, and breathtakingly cynical assault on the most fundamental values of America itself. This is an explicit, literal admission by the Bushies that America, the America to which we on the left have so selflessly and unreservedly devoted every moment of our lives, the America so loved by all the funny little foreigners right up until January 2001, no longer exists. We all know that it’s the left who serve in the military, and by killing off virtually the entire military in Iraq — an entire generation exterminated — Bush has finally weakened America to the point where he need no longer pretend.

      Who’s the real terrorist? I think we all know.

An internal investigation is proceeding as I speak. We recognize our responsibility to keep the public informed and we take this responsibility seriously.”

    1. #35: There is a large Haitian community in Miami, and an area known as “Little Haiti.” I remember when I lived in Miami (See: “The Life and Times of Paco”. Volume III: “The Golden Age”), Baby Doc Duvalier was deposed, and from the window of my bank, across the street from the Haitian Consulate, I saw a mob of anti-Duvalierists attempt to storm the building – object: hang the consul general. The police came and ran them off.

    1. This cavalier attitude towards internationally agreed principles of justice and freedom is unlawful and is doing immense damage to the framework of human rights and to the moral authority of the US to champion human rights. It is sending a signal to repressive governments around the world that some abuses, including torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, are acceptable.”
      Sending a signal to terrorists that they will get lengthy and expensive treatment under extravagant legal processes accorded to normal citizens, rather than being taken out and shot as illegal combatants or agents provocateur of a malevolent religion, seems to be beyond the concern of Amnesty’s Irene Khan.

    1. ak: yes, there are. Little Haiti and Liberty City are right next to each other. Here’s a map. (If the url doesn’t work, I just put “Little Haiti and Liberty City, Miami” in the Google Maps search box.)

      Of course, there are Haitians all over Miami, not just in one neighborhood. It was always my impression that the Haitians were for the most part hardworking, pious people, mostly Christian. Of course, there was lots of voodoo stuff—one of the common sights around the courthouse in downtown Miami were dead chickens, left on the courthouse steps for good luck (for whoever’s relative was on trial—unfortunately Haitians weren’t all law-abiding; some of them worked hard at being criminals).

    1. Why don’t we take Ms. Kahn to Gitmo, run her through the same mill that we use for those poor innocents there.  Then, we take her to Baghdad and drop her off on al Sadr’s front step.

      I really think that these people who are rooting for the enemy ought to be handed over to the head-hackers.  That way, the murderers could leave innocent people alone and still have the fodder they need for their snuff tapes.  Fair trade, yes?

    1. More from the great Khan:
      “A year is a long time in politics – but it is an even longer time if you happen to be a prisoner without charge, trial, or prospect of release in Guantánamo. Some 460 people of around 40 different nationalities remain in Guantánamo. Their desperation is evident in the large numbers of suicide attempts, in one case more than 12 times, and hunger strikes. Last Friday’s incident of the attack on prison guards was yet another sign of the desperate situation. Guantánamo is a pressure cooker waiting to explode.”
      Of course, a year is not a long time in the lives of people whose relatives have been killed by terrorists, by or by Saddam’s henchmen, or hanged/shot in the Kabul stadium by the insane Taliban.
      Such people feel no desperation, or at least not that Irene Khan or Amnesty need worry about. It is far more important that her 2006 report shows concern for the desperation of the 460 in Guantanamo.
      You are only really desperate if you are attacking guards?
      Amnesty is a shameful, deceitful farce and deserves not one cent from any concerned citizen of the free world.

      The US isn’t looking into YOUR bank records.  And they aren’t looking into MINE, either.  And hell, if the US wants to look at my bank records, we already have the IRS, who can look at anyone’s damn bank records, if a US citizen or even just hanging out here, any damn time they feel like it.

      I swear, Adammo, I think all lefties are imbued with narcissm—they think President Bush is sitting at his desk, listening to THEIR phone calls, and looking at THEIR banking records, personally.  Sweet Jesus on a pogostick, get over yourselves!
