Most likely Ramadan (September 24 – October 23) will come and go without incident, but Hot Air has a post that I thought Wizbang readers would want to know about.
Allah is skeptical of the report, via The Jawa Report, too, but he offers a few points to keep in mind.
Hamid Mir, the reporter who originally reported this information, has great AQ connections: he’s the only one to ever interview OBL after 9/11. Allah also notes this about Hamid Mir:
He’s been consistent, too: I wrote a post in late May about an interview Mir had given in which he identified Al Qaeda’s nuclear ambitions and even the operative they’ve entrusted to mastermind the attack — Adnan al-Shukrijumah, who inspired a special national terror APB by the FBI back in 2002. Mir’s story is the same today as it was four months ago. The only difference is that now he’s got a target date for the attack. Ramadan, 2006.
Also, according to Mir, the bomb is already in the states, having been smuggled in through Mexico.
Allah also reminds us of this YouTube of CNN on 9/11. About 30 seconds in to the video, Aaron Brown reads an AP report out of London which says that about three weeks prior to 9/11, followers of OBL warned about an unprecedented, spectacular attack on US interests.
Allah also notes that The Blotter, which has good connections with the US intelligence community, has run two articles about OBL’s nuclear bomb guy, Adnan al-Shukrijumah, in the past five days. Coincidence? Probably, but, as Allah writes, consider that The Blotter ran a story about the UK Terror plot mastermind the day before any arrests were made in the UK, which means he may have been tipped off.
As I said in the beginning of the post, Ramadan will most likely be uneventful; nonetheless, I thought Wizbang readers would be interested in this information from Hot Air.
