An AQ commander named Abu Dawood allegedly told Hamid Mir last month that an attack was coming during Ramadan. Of course, he also promised a new message from Bin Laden within two weeks.
With a week left before Eid, here comes warning number two:
The head of the Islamabad-based Al-Quds Media Centre has received an audio message from a senior Taliban leader in which he asked Muslims living in the US to leave the country as soon as possible “because God’s punishment would fall on America in the month of Ramazan.”
Jamal Ismail, a senior journalist who once worked for Al-Jazeera television channel and is now head of the Al-Quds Media Centre, told The News that he received a phone call Thursday from Taliban leader Mulla Masoom Afghani. “Afghani said he was speaking from somewhere in Kandahar province. He read out the message in Arabic, which I recorded. In it he advised Muslim residents of America to get out to escape harm because the US could face big attacks in the month of Ramazan,” said Jamal Ismail.
You’ll know the FBI is really worried if new items about Shukrijumah start showing up in the Blotter this week.
Update: Terrorists doing reconnaissance or wannabes wanking around with Internet tech? You make the call!
