TOI reported: a dozen trained operatives of extremist groups have infiltrated into the rank-and-file of some top IT companies. US head of the National Counterterrorism Centerdusckiyser speaks in his interview published in the latest editon of Newsweek: “ While we’re on this topic, what can you tell us about Pakistan’s release of Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan, who allegedly was a top Al Qaeda communications and computer guy and is now roaming free?



Incidentally, two professionals working for city-based IT and ITeS companies have already been named in terror attacks so far. While Naved, who was an employee of an MNC BPO, has been accused of participating in the Mumbai blasts, Kafeel Ahmed, who worked for the city-based Infotech’s Bangalore facility, was the man who drove the flaming jeep into Glasgow airport and later died of burns.


Bojinka to HYD via Glasgow

Since last 15 year Al-Qaeda attempted Bojinka and Glasgow failed terror plot with the help of Information Technology. The secret history of 9/11 to Glagow and HYD blasts is also hides behind this with the involvement of Pakistani compter experts.

Computer jehadi guy is now roaming free in Pakistan

Retired Vice Admiral John Scott Redd, head of the National Counterterrorism Center says in his intrview which is published in the latest edition of Newsweek: “ While we’re on this topic, what can you tell us about Pakistan’s release of Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan, who allegedly was a top Al Qaeda communications and computer guy and is now roaming free? [Pakistani] Supreme Court said, ‘You’ve got to release this guy,’ and, you know, he’s out for a variety of reasons…………….* Iraq is a giant university for bombmakers. But, see, they don’t have to [make] it there. They just buy the explosives. It’s HBX or C4. There’s so much explosive material around there. But if they wanted to teach people, they certainly could. But you don’t have to make C4. You put a detonator in it with a 99-percent likelihood that sucker is going to go off. And they are very good at that,”

Arrrest of Pak computer expert in 2004 now free

Terror suspect Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, wanted for the US embassy bombings in Africa in 1998, was arrested in the last week of July 2004. He got aquittal there and after that he was in Pakistani Jail but as said above by John Scott Redd he is now a freeman to show the spirit of Musharraff in ‘War against terror’ of Bush and joint mechanism of Indian PM. It was believed that Khan's computer contained data indicating that al-Qaeda operators have been carefully assessing the security strengths and weaknesses of these sites in preparation for an explosives attack.


Australia in Bojinka and Glasgow failed plots

July 6, 1995-June 26, 1996: A Syrian suspected of involvement in the al-Qaeda Bojinka plot is granted asylum in Australia even though the Australian government is aware of some of his apparent terrorism ties. It is good luck that Indian Mulstim Dr. Haneef is now free due to the tears of Indian PM. It is bad luck that due to the joyous mood of Andhra’s C M, its cabinet and Congress President HYD bloas happened which killed mostly Hindus.

New Yark Times disclosed Al-Qaeda’s IT wing

The New York Times claimed in Aug 2, 2004, that Khan had "told investigators that most of al-Qaeda's communications were now done through the Internet, the official said. After a message was sent and read by the recipient, the entire communication and related files were deleted to maintain secrecy, he said. Mr. Khan had told investigators that e-mail addresses were generally not used more than a few times."


Al-Qaeda’s IT efficiency is for bomb blast, not for cyber crime

There has been no mention of any sort of computer-based attack, such as a mass virus outbreak or DDoS, however. So far, the forces of evil appear to be using computer technology and network infrastructure just as anyone else might do - that is, as a convenience, and not as a target in itself.

The Bojinka Plot

The Bojinka Plot was a planned large-scale terrorist attack on airliners in 1995. The money handed down to the plotters originated from Al-Qaeda. The plot is also known as Oplan Bojinka, Operation Bojinka, Project Bojinka, Bojinga.

Please find details in the article of Aug 10, 2006 titled ‘London Bomb Plot: Lashkar-e-Toeba (LeT) & 7/11’.

The evidence in Room 603: Ramzi Yousef's computer

Yousef's pet project was discovered on four floppy diskettes and an off-white Toshiba laptop personal computer inside his apartment, two weeks before the plot would have been implemented. Several encrypted files on the C: Drive contained flight schedules, calculations of detonation times, and other items. A file named "Bojinka" lists the eleven flights between Asia and the United States, which were grouped under five codenames. Strings were found

The laptop had names of dozens of associates, including some photographs of a few of them and including contact information for Mohammed Jamal Khalifa. They contained records of information

Abdul Hakim Murad, who was sent to the apartment to retrieve the computer after the fire.

His testimony helped to convict Yousef. Yousef would later be arrested in a hotel room in Islamabad, Pakistan on February 7, 1995 after a 23-day manhunt. All three conspirators got life sentences for participating in the plot. Yousef also got 240 years along with his life sentence for the 1993 World Trade Center attacks. Yousef was sentenced on January 8, 1998, and Murad was sentenced on May 16, 1998. Shah has been cooperating with the government since August 1998.

People who feel that the United States Government should have discovered September 11 feel that the the findings of 93's Bombay blasts and discovery of Operation Bojinka should have raised early warning flags that would have prevented September 11, pointing to Phase II. Some from this side of the argument also feel that the U.S. government should have connected the dots

The same can be said about Indian Govt. If the vote bank politicians became serious in the above background then there would not be bomblasts again and again.

February 7, 1995: Ramzi Yousef Is Arrested in Pakistan

Ramzi Yousef is arrested in Pakistan, in a safe house owned by bin Laden (see February 1992-February 7, 1995).


Late 1980s: Ramzi Yousef Recruited by CIA?

It was said that Al-Qaeda bomber Ramzi Yousef was recruited by the CIA, though details were not known. Author Richard Labeviere reported without elaboration in a 1999 book, “A classified FBI file indicates that [Yousef] was recruited by the local branch of the CIA.” [Labeviere, 1999, pp. 220-221]

The Bojinka Plot was a pre-trial of 9/11
In the wake of uncovering the Operation Bojinka plot, Philippine authorities find a letter on a computer disc written by the plotters of the failed 1993 WTC bombing. This letter apparently was never sent, but its contents will be revealed in 1998 congressional testimony. [US Congress, 2/24/1998] The Manila police chief also reports discovering a statement from bin Laden around this time that, although they failed to blow up the WTC in 1993, “on the second attempt they would be successful.” [Agence France-Presse, 9/13/2001]
