A British teenager who is accused of possessing material for terrorist purposes has appeared in court.

The 17-year-old, who was arrested in the Dewsbury area of West Yorkshire on Monday, was given bail after a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

It is alleged he had a copy of the "Anarchists' Cookbook", containing instructions on how to make home-made explosives.

TPMmuckraker | Talking Points Memo | Blackwater to Guard G-Men Investigating Blackwater
Topic: War on Terrorism 11:02 am EDT, Oct  4, 2007

"What happens when the FBI team decides to go visit the crime scene? Blackwater is going to have to take them there," the senior U.S. official told The News.

You'd think the FBI would be able to get official soldiers. This is a clever form of coercion though.

Security Theater: TSA Confiscates Pudding, Misses Knife - Consumerist
Topic: War on Terrorism 12:06 pm EDT, Aug 27, 2007

Ah, the dangerous liquids ban. We're all so much safer because of it.

Reader Porter says he accidentally left his Swiss Army knife in his backpack as he went through the TSA check point, an all too common mistake.

Thankfully, the TSA agent spotted his package of pudding and confiscated it, missing the knife completely.

Seven-year-old Muslim boy stopped in US three times on suspicion of being a terrorist | News | This is London
Topic: War on Terrorism 10:17 am EDT, Aug 22, 2007

For seven-year-old Javaid Iqbal, the holiday to Florida was a dream trip to reward him for doing well at school.

But he was left in tears after he was stopped repeatedly at airports on suspicion of being a terrorist.

The security alerts were triggered because Javaid shares his name with a Pakistani man deported from the US, prompting staff at three airports to question his family about his identity.

The family even missed their flight home from the U.S. after officials cancelled their tickets in the confusion. And Javaid's passport now contains a sticker saying he has undergone highlevel security checks.


Javaid said: "All this was about my name. They said that it had a block on it. We felt scared and didn't know what was going on."


Javaid's parents, who moved to Blackburn from Saudi Arabia in 2002, are now considering changing their son's name.


"They really should have known he was only a seven-yearold child. I do understand the reasons but this was over the top. I can understand the safety aspect but it doesn't help relationships with different faiths."

International airports will not discuss security policies and anti-terrorism measures and all those involved refused to comment on this case.

Guilty until proven innocent... Even kids.

MIT finds cure for fear | Press Esc

MIT biochemists have identified a molecular mechanism behind fear, and successfully cured it in mice, according to an article in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Maybe if they released this into the water it would end terrorism.

During the stay she made sandwiches for the kids and was careful to pack the knives she used to prepare those sandwiches in her checked luggage. She says she even alerted security screeners that the knives were in her checked bags and they told her that was OK.

But Beaman says she couldn't find a third knife. It was a 5 1/2 inch bread knife with a rounded tip and a serrated edge. She thought she might have lost or misplaced it during the trip.

On the trip home, screeners with the Transportation Security Administration at Los Angeles International Airport found it deep in the outside pocket of a carry-on cooler. Beaman apologized and told them it was a mistake.

"You've committed a felony," Beaman says a security screener announced. "And you're considered a terrorist."

Beaman says she was told her name would go on a terrorist watch-list and that she would have to pay a $500 fine.

"I'm a 57-year-old woman who is taking care of 37 kids," she told them. "I'm not gonna commit a terrorist act."

Who ever said that the Airport security was arbitrary and useless? This just proves the effectiveness of security measures by removing dangers like this from our society. Aren't you glad these people are paid as much as they are?

'This Is Not Right' | KOMO-TV - Seattle, Washington | News Archive - Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'
Topic: War on Terrorism 11:46 am EDT, Jun 11, 2007

(CBS 5) BERKELEY A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb."

Somehow, I'm sure that this can be traced back to Jim Channon. - Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'

Psychic Intelligence Gathering Used to Defend Homeland
Topic: War on Terrorism 10:04 am EDT, Jun  4, 2007

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--During the Cold War, “Remote Viewers” were used to collect intelligence on Soviet and Chinese weapons systems and their R&D.

To avoid being left vulnerable, for 23 years, from 1972 until 1995, the American Defense and Intelligence Community sponsored research and deployed operational units of Psychic Warriors. The premise was simple, and the results staggering.

While still controversial, the dire consequences of homeland defense errors are causing renewed interest in using the science of clairvoyance to help keep U.S. citizens out of harms way. Now, for the first time in a publicly accessible forum, anyone can learn the techniques of seeing behind the lines.

InfowarCon, the world’s premier congress on cyber-terrorism, information warfare and critical infrastructure protection ( is hosting a full day training seminar on psychic intelligence gathering.

Hosted by Paul Smith, retired U.S. Intelligence Officer and author of bestselling book, “Reading the Enemy's Mind: Inside Star Gate -- America's Psychic Espionage Program," (Tor/Forge 2005, ISBN: 0312875150), attendees will get first hand experience at remote identifying. Mr. Smith was a highly acclaimed Remote Viewer for heavily classified Remote Viewing projects and is credited with authoring the original Controlled Remote Viewing training manual.

According to InfowarCon founder Winn Schwartau, “today, we have to bring out all of the stops to defend ourselves against all kinds of enemies. Our best defense is to know what they know.”

In this first of a kind full day seminar, students will learn the basics of Remote Viewing and engage in actual Remote Viewing sessions themselves. Mr. Smith will give the complete history and detail the incredible successes this mind-bending Star Gate program offered the U.S. intelligence community.

The Return of the Jedi...

RE: Counterterrorism Blog: Iran forging alliance with Al-Qaeda?

The Daily Telegraph reports today that Iran is seeking to wield influence within Al-Qaeda to help name its number three individual in the Al-Qaeda organization. If accurate, the report states that Ahmadinejad is trying to persuade Al-Qaeda to promote a pro-Iranian activist (Saif Al-Adel) to a senior position within its leadership.

For the past three years, U.S. intelligence officials have said a shadowy group called the "al Quds force"-- the Jerusalem force -- part of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard organization, may be sheltering some al Qaeda leaders, including its military commander, Saif Al-Adel, and Saad Bin Laden, son of the al Qaeda leader.

It is now reported that Iran is seeking Saif Al-Adel to fill the number three position of the Al-Qaeda organization. It is also reported that is believed that Osama Bin Laden health problems may be causing Iran's push to have Saif Al-Adel in that role to complement Zawahiri. According to reports from Western intelligence agencies, Iran is training senior Al-Qaeda operatives in Teheran to take over the organisation when bin Laden is no longer leader. For some time, military officials have claimed that Iran is providing Iraqi terrorists with arms.

Clearly Iran is supporting Iraqi Shia. Clearly Al'Q is supporting Iraqi Sunni... What does THIS mean?
