Report: AQ warns Muslims to leave NYC, Washington

The worry meter remains at midlevel, but I’m obliged to follow up on that earlier post. Via Bama Pachyderm via Gateway Pundit via World Net Daily, Pakistani journalist Hamir Mir says the end is nigh:

“We have a different plan for the next attack,” [AQ Afghan commander Abu Dawood] told Mir. “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 Mohamed Atta will not attack inside America, it would be some David, Richard or Peter.”

He said there will be another audio message from bin Laden aired within the next two weeks.

Mir reportedly interviewed Dawood Sept. 12 at the tomb of Sultan Mehmud Ghaznawi on the outskirts of Kabul. Dawood and the al-Qaida leaders who accompanied him were clean-shaven and dressed as Western reporters.

Let’s wait and see about that audio message. If that comes through, then maybe we go to code orange.

More details at the world’s most alarmist website:

* Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S…

* The attack will be commandeered by Adnan el Shukrijumah (“Jaffer Tayyer” or “Jafer the Pilot”), a naturalized American citizen, who was raised in Brooklyn and educated in southern Florida.

Again, if you don’t think they’d warn people in advance of an impending attack, watch the CNN video from the morning of 9/11.

Here’s video of Shukrijumah.

Update: I know someone’s inevitably going to try to link Dawood to that missed opportunity with the drone and the Taliban gathered in the cemetery. Evan Coyne Maloney says tain’t necessarily so.

Update: While we’re on the subject of advance warnings about terror attacks, you owe it to yourself to read (or re-read) this semi-famous piece by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro for Insight magazine. Jonathan Alter of Newsweek got wind of Shapiro’s original article shortly after 9/11 and promptly set out to debunk it. Things didn’t work out the way he planned.
