   The following quote is published today on the internet site NewsMax.com. The information is from a book about the AlQaeda threat here in the United States. It illustrates why we need to keep the "Patriot Act" and other weapons used by Homeland Security services in force. For those of you who don't like to read lengthy descriptions of a subject. I will simplify it by saving up front that this radical islamist is believed to be in the U.S. with orders from bin Laden to construct and detonate nuclear devices in several U.S. cities. The Federal government takes this threat as being serios, and has offered a 5 million dollars reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this man. The man in question is Adnan el-Shukrijumah. A native born Saudia Arabian who has been known to live in south Florida, and took flying lessons with some of the 9/11/01 terrorist group that attacked New York. The following quote is posted on News Max website:
Adnan, 31, was born in Guyana, according to Williams, although the FBI believes he was born in Saudi Arabia. He spent his early years in New York City, where his father, a radical Muslim cleric, was the imam of a Brooklyn mosque known to serve as a recruiting station for al-Qaida. In 1995, Adnan's family moved to Miramar, Fla., where Adnan's father became spiritual leader of a radical mosque. In Florida Adnan befriended Jose Padilla, who planned to detonate a dirty bomb in Manhattan, and Imran Mandhai, who was convicted of trying to blow up nuclear power plants in Florida.
Between 1996 and 2000, Adnan traveled extensively, spending time in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Trinidad, Tobago and Guyana. He managed to collect passports from a number of countries, and began using at least five aliases.
Adnan also attended flight school in Florida and Oklahoma, along with Mohammad Atta and other 9/11 operatives, and became adept at piloting jets.
In April 2001, Williams disclosed, Adnan spent 10 days in Panama, where he reportedly met with al-Qaida officials to help plan the 9/11 attacks.
After the terrorist strikes, Adnan became a key figure in al-Qaida's plans to escalate its attacks on the U.S. Williams compiled evidence that Osama bin Laden designated him to arrange a simultaneous nuclear attack on seven U.S. cities – New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Boston and Las Vegas.
Williams believes Adnan then enrolled at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, site of a five-megawatt nuclear research reactor. Incredibly, Adnan was able to get a job as a guide at the reactor.
"Bit by bit, the al-Qaida operative allegedly managed to pilfer approximately 180 pounds of nuclear material from the university – enough to build several radiological bombs," Williams reports.
Adnan disappeared from the school in October 2003, several days before the nuclear material was reported missing. Alerted about Adnan's plans by a captured high-ranking al-Qaida official, Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI director Robert Mueller issued a BOLO (be-on-the-lookout) alert for Adnan on March 21, 2004.
In the following months Adnan was spotted in Colorado, Pakistan, Honduras, Belize and Mexico.
In November 2004, another key al-Qaida operative was captured in Pakistan. He told interrogators that the terrorist group had arranged to smuggle nuclear supplies and tactical nuclear weapons into Mexico, then to transport them across the U.S. border with the aid of a Latino street gang. The gang was later identified as Mara Salvatrucha – a group Adnan at met with during his visit to Honduras.
"The gang has some form of presence in virtually every Hispanic community across the United States, and can offer al-Qaida unparalleled infiltration into any city in the country," according to a report from the Jamestown Foundation cited by Williams.
U.S. officials responded to the intelligence and began monitoring all heavy trucks crossing into the U.S. from Mexico, and Mexican officials vowed to keep close watch on flight schools and aviation facilities. Those precautions may have come to late, says Williams, who writes:
"A Piper PA Pawnee crop duster was stolen from Ejido Queretaro near Mexicali on November 1, 2004. The plane's tail number was XBCYP. The thieves, Mexican officials surmised, were either drug dealers or al-Qaida operatives, and clearly one was a highly trained pilot who met the description of Adnan el-Shukrijumah." The treat is real and don't let any leftist Democrat tell you we can just talk them into stopping their quest to destrot us!
