Nidal Malik Hasan Follows the Orders of Nasir al-Wahayshi in Ft. Hood Attack
First and foremost, this essential truth: The war on terror is not a war on Islam.
In their article titled “Counterterrrorism: Shifting from Who to How” (Stratfor.com, 11/04/2009), Scott Stewart and Fred Burton warn that, to better thwart detection, the Islamist leadership now emphasizes individually initiated attacks over those planned by groups.
In the 11th edition of the online magazine Sada al-Malahim (The Echo of Battle), just released to jihadist web sites last week, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Nasir al-Wahayshi (the ethnic Yemeni, serving as lieutenant to bin Laden in Afghanistan) wrote an article that called for jihadists to conduct simple attacks against a suggested variety of targets. They included, “any tyrant, intelligence den, prince or minister and any crusaders wherever you find one of them, like at the airports of the crusader western countries that participate in wars against Islam, or their living compounds, trains, etc.”
Having conducted his operation and (unexpectedly) survived (fortunately for us), Nidal Malik Hasan the Islamist mole, will now, as planned, receive cover from his associates who will blame his actions on “stress” and pronounce him innocent while they celebrate among themselves.
The attack at Ft. Hood is the first of many we can expect to follow. “Normalcy” became something different today. The sooner we understand this, the better. Welcome to the new era of “grassroots” terror.
