Gabe Suarez: ‘What We Really Need Is A Good Guy That Is Also A Killer’

Back on January 9, I blogged about Gabe Suarez, head of The Suarez Group and a decorated veteran of Southern California law enforcement, concerning a Facebook post of his in which he declared “Every Man Is A Counter Terrorist” in response to the Charlie Hebdo shootings in France.

On Friday, he updated that “call to arms” against the “bad guys” in the wake of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

While that update was just as thought-provoking as the original, it’s what Suarez wrote Sunday on his company’s Facebook page (and which I received via e-mail this morning) that really stands out for me. From that post:

IGNORE THE SIGN

Some points on Oregon: Its not a video of a kitten so I hope its actually read by someone.

1). I could simply cut and paste every article I have written after these and simply change the dates and locations and they would all be spot on.

a). Its either a jihadist muslim extremist, a common crazy guy, or a combination of both.

b). It is at a place where everyone has been voluntarily disarmed.

c). The police arrive after the bodies pile up and kill him, and then say it was a suicide.

d). The monkeys in charge call for more gun restrictions. Over and over and over. Routine? Yup.

2). The woods are lovely dark and deep. I will leave it at that…look it up. Very excellent timing after Putin gave Obama a penile prostate check over Syria.

3). If we did not embrace the cultures that hate us (reference the 100,000 Syrians your POTUS is bringing into the USA), or allow crazy people to roam free…I bet there would be fewer of these.

4). Given the inability of the authorities to keep you safe in such events, obeying “the sign” is a form of insanity. Not only immoral for them to suggest you do so, but also foolish on your part knowing what the eventual outcome of such an event would be.

5). We have plenty of noble victim-heroes that sacrifice themselves, unarmed to save others.

Yes…I got it…America yearns for heroes in these estrogenized times like an addict yearns for a fix. But we have plenty of the self sacrifial types. What we really need is a good guy that is also a killer. A good guy that is also a killer that will ignore the sign, and go after the sound of the shots with a smile on his face and a pistol in his hand and shoot the bad guy right in the face…or the back of the head if positioning favors that.

Today, every man or woman is a counter terrorist.

IGNORE THE SIGN

Suarez once again leaves his audience with a good deal of material to really think about, particularly that bit where he said, “The police arrive after the bodies pile up and kill him, and then say it was a suicide.”

Terrorists Planning On Kidnapping Americans, Attacking Water Systems As Well As Airlines Again?

There is quite a lot of terrorism talk going on these days in the mainstream media outlets. On October 10, Mike Deeson reported on the website of Tampa Bay CBS affiliate 10 News about potential terrorist “dry-runs” on the airlines. Deeson wrote:

A memo obtained by the 10 News investigators from the union that represents pilots for US Airways says that “there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat.”

In a September 2 incident aboard a flight from Reagan National Airport to Orlando International Airport:

Crew members say that shortly after takeoff, a group of four “Middle Eastern” men caused a commotion.

The witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach, toward the flight deck door. He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom “for a considerable length of time.”

While he was in there, the other three men proceeded to move about the cabin, changing seats, opening overhead bins, and “generally making a scene.” They appeared to be trying to occupy and distract the flight attendants.

“He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom ‘for a considerable length of time.'” The other three men acting all anxious?

Could’ve been an earlier “chow call” gone horribly wrong with a subsequent frantic search for the Imodium A-D that was packed away in their checked-in luggage.

All kidding aside, both US Airways and the Transportation Security Administration confirmed the incident for 10 News investigators, and there’s been a Congressional call for an investigation of the matter according to a later 10 News piece.

On October 18, possible terrorist activity directed against Midwestern municipal water systems was reported on the Kansas City Star website. According to the paper:

The FBI is investigating a threat against water systems in four Midwestern cities, including Wichita, Kan.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said Friday the FBI hasn’t substantiated any threats to the four cities. She would not name those cities, saying only that they were confined to the Midwest.

Finally, last weekend it was reported that intelliegence sources have informed FOX News there’s been significant Internet chatter by terrorists urging followers to kidnap Americans overseas:

9/11 Anniversary Terrorism Threat

This Wednesday marks the 12th anniversary of 9/11. And according to the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, they do not have any specific information concerning a terrorist attack being planned for the occasion. From the Associated Press right before the weekend:

The government is aware of no credible or specific information that points to any terror plot tied to the anniversary of the September 2001 attacks, according to a new confidential threat assessment from the FBI and Homeland Security Department obtained by The Associated Press.

The new assessment, dated Thursday, said that intelligence agencies remain concerned that Al Qaeda and its affiliates are committed to carrying out attacks on Western targets. But it said there was no information pointing to any known plot. The bulletin made no mention of Syria, even as President Barack Obama sought congressional approval to use military force against the Syrian government.

Then again, the September 11, 2001, plot was pretty much under the radar too, figuratively and literally.

Remember, as I blogged back in June 2011, Osama bin Laden’s successor in Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, still has a point to prove concerning doubts over the operational capabilities of the terrorist organization and his leadership abilities.

At the same time, I can’t help but suspect Al-Qaeda might wait to see if the United States attacks Syria, at which point they- along with other terror groups- will attempt to retaliate “in defense of the Muslim faith.”

Stay frosty in the coming days…

Quote For The Week

Some analysts and Congressional officials suggested Friday that emphasizing a terrorist threat now was a good way to divert attention from the uproar over the N.S.A.’s data-collection programs, and that if it showed the intercepts had uncovered a possible plot, even better.

CBS Chicago Asks: Is Chicago, Cook County Safe From Terrorists?

From a CBS Chicago news broadcast last night:

ROB JOHHNSON: Chicago’s Mayor and Police Superintendent have said they would use lessons learned from the Boston Marathon bombings to make Chicago safer.
KATE SULLIVAN: But tonight, we’ve learned that they’ve already made some changes. Chief Correspondent Jay Levine sat down with Superintendent McCarthy and began by asking the simple question, “Are we safe?” So what do you say, Jay?
JAY LEVINE: One word Kate- absolutely.


CBS Chicago Video
ANY CHARACTER HERE

Tuesday night, CBS Chicago’s Levine focused on Cook County as the second most populous county in the U.S. refines its anti-terrorism plans and procedures in the wake of the Boston terror attack (video segment here).

Personally, as long as our borders are as porous as they are, I won’t feel safe from terrorists. It won’t stop me from doing what I want, when I want, but you won’t see me at some mass gathering or in some other situation that screams “juicy jihadist target” anytime soon.

Besides, I dislike crowds.

Al-Qaeda Terror Threat Downplayed On Eve Of 9/11 Anniversary?

Since I started blogging in 2007, I’ve noticed that complacency seems to be growing over a major terror attack by Al-Qaeda. I guess it’s only natural, considering the amount of time that has passed since September 11, 2001, and the successive blows suffered by the leadership of Al-Qaeda and their affiliates. Still, security was heightened in the U.S. with the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 and in Great Britain with the 2012 London Olympics. But as September 11 rolls around again tomorrow, and being informed that the terror group is big not only on anniversaries but on raising the bar on casualties, I sense a huge degree of complacency as it concerns another terror attack in the United States tomorrow and down the road. From the Christian Broadcasting Network website today:

Authorities are warning of the danger of a “lone wolf” attack a day ahead of the eleventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

So far, however, there have been no warnings for law enforcement across the country to be on high alert.

According to a new law enforcement bulletin, the successful targeting of al Qaeda leaders has led to a decline in threats of a 9/11-style attack from the terrorist group.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

At least the concern over a “lone wolf” attack still remains. But Al-Qaeda is like the Rodney Dangerfield of terrorist organizations these days- can’t get no respect. Look at these recent headlines on some mainstream media websites:

“Terror takes back seat; Americans safer now”

-From the Associated Press on Yahoo! News, September 8, 2012

“Never have so few been able to frighten so many”

-Philly.com (joint project of The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Philadelphia Daily News, September 9, 2012)

“On anniversary of 9/11, fear is present but not all-consuming”

The Boston Globe, September 10, 2012

There’s even this out of Hong Kong:

“Americans stop fretting about the threat of terrorism”

South China Morning Post, September 10, 2012

I loathe Al-Qaeda as much as any other American. But let’s not call the outcome of the game (Al-Qaeda is now kaput) while it’s still in the early innings, as the next generation of terrorists- inspired by the American response and presence in the Middle East after 9/11- start to replace their predecessors who have been captured, incapacitated, and killed.

As such, keep watching your six, because I don’t think Al-Qaeda is all out of bullets just yet.

British Intelligence: Al-Qaeda Plotting To Blow Up U.S. Passenger Jet

Has an Al-Qaeda-trained terrorist of Norwegian descent finally received his marching orders? From the Daily Mail (UK) website yesterday:

A terrorist plot to blow up a U.S. passenger jet timed to coincide with the Olympics has been uncovered by security agencies, according to intelligence sources.

Al Qaeda intended to use a radicalised Norwegian Islamic convert to attack U.S. planes in the build-up to the London Games – which start in 26 days on July 27 – it is understood.

The plan centred on using the so-called ‘clean skin’ – a terrorist with no previous criminal record and are unlikely to raise suspicions among the security services – in order to evade airport security…

It is believed the suspect tasked with the attack uses the Islamic name Muslim Abu Abdurrahman, had converted to Islam in 2008, and was recruited in a terrorist training camp in Yemen, sources told the Sunday Times.

According to the Daily Mail piece, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP), based in Yemen, is thought to be behind this plot. As far as I know, there’s no comment yet from U.S. officials regarding the plan. However, CBS News picked up the story this morning, and from their website:

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former Deputy Director of National Intelligence, said that despite foiled bomb plots targeting airliners, al Qaeda has not lost its fascination with commercial aviation – and that AQAP (al Qaeda’s branch based in Yemen) has been specifically assigned to find a way to blow up a U.S. plane.

“They were the architects of the first underwear bomb, they were the architects of the ingenious printer bomb which was interdicted before it could go off,” Miller said. “And I think what we’re seeing once again is they’ve tried to put a bomb on a person and get them on a plane. Whether it has anything to do with the Olympics or the Fourth of July – one of the chosen target holidays by bin Laden – is something we don’t yet know.

Al-Qaeda Behind Colorado Wildfires?

When I saw the following on the FOX News website tonight, I initially rolled my eyes:

Raging Wildfires in Colorado prompts FBI investigation

The Federal Bureau Investigation announced Wednesday that it would investigate the cause of a raging wildfire that displaced thousands of residents and an untold number of homes in Colorado…

Then I remembered something I came across recently that mentioned Al-Qaeda wanting to use such fires as a terror weapon. From Los Angeles ABC affiliate KABC-TV Channel 7 back on May 3:

Al Qaeda terrorists are calling on followers to ignite wildfires in the U.S., which could make California a target…

An al Qaeda-linked website is now calling on extremists to set fires in remote areas. The websites even provide instructions on how to make fire bombs and firefighters are taking it seriously. “It does not seem all that farfetched. A wildfire moves quite quickly and can inflict damage, and if people have that intent, it’s very frightening,” said Battalion chief Julie Hutchinson with the California Fire Department. The instructions to extremists come from Inspire, al Qaeda’s online publication which was started by American-born al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki was killed by a U.S. missile strike in September, but the publication is still being produced.


ABC Video

In addition, Gwen Florio wrote on The Billings Gazette website on May 4:

Terrorists who want to strike fear in the hearts of Americans would do well to set wildfires in Montana, al-Qaida advises in the most recent issue of its English-language magazine, Inspire.

“It is difficult to choose a better place other than in the valleys of Montana where the population increases rapidly,” Inspire’s “AQ Chef” columnist writes.

It sure will be interesting to see if the FBI investigation turns up anything.

British Spymaster: London Olympics Attractive Target For Al-Qaeda

Anti-terror police arrest two men in east London

British counter-terrorism police on Thursday arrested two men aged 18 and 32 in east London in an operation that was aimed partly at protecting the London Olympics, sources told NBC News.

-MSNBC.com, June 28, 2012

With Al-Qaeda still lurking and the 2012 Summer Olympic Games to begin late next month, the head of Great Britain’s MI5 (Military Intelligence, Section 5- tasked with protecting the U.K. from terrorism/espionage) believes London will be a juicy target for terrorists. Ashis Ray wrote on the Times of India website yesterday:

A month before the London Olympics, head of Britain’s domestic spy agency said the games were an attractive target for terrorists and that some terror networks have thought about whether they could pull off an attack.

In a rare public speech on Monday, MI5 director-general Jonathan Evans though dispelled fears saying, “The Games are not an easy target and the fact that we have disrupted multiple terrorist plots here and abroad in recent years demonstrates that the UK as a whole is not an easy target for terrorism.”

The British spymaster talked about the threat posed by Al-Qaeda to our allies across the pond. From the article:

Scores of would-be British jihadis are travelling to Arab countries to be trained by al-Qaida. They are currently being trained in Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Somalia, Evans said. Figures last year suggested more than 100 Britons were absorbed by terror groups in Somalia.

It is suspected that many are now being prepared for terrorist attacks across Yemen, Egypt and Libya. Evans also suggested there could be a steady stream of new recruits from the UK. From a British domestic perspective, Evans said, “Some will return to the UK and pose a threat here. This is a new and worrying development.” Speaking about the threat perception in Britain, he said, “In back rooms, in cars and on the streets of this country there is no shortage of individuals talking about wanting to mount terrorist attacks here.”

If Al-Qaeda launches a terror attack at the Summer Olympics, how would they carry it out? Asian News International reported on June 20:

The former Head of Department of Asymmetric Threats at the Joint Military Intelligence Division, in Athens, Greece, Ioannis Galatas has suggested that the 2012 Olympic Games may be a launching pad for potential terrorist threats, including Al Qaeda’s ‘dirty bomb’ plans, even as the successor to the late Osama bin Laden and a medical doctor himself, Al-Zawahiri, struggled to regain “face” amongst extremists opposing the West.

There have been numerous terrorist attacks since New York’s “9/11” but none quite matching its scale and impact, and perhaps this has been a matter of disruption, deterrence and, most disturbingly, patience.

However, Galatas suggested that such attacks have been thwarted by national security measures and intelligence, even as the threat of a CBRN attack, referring to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear, is ever present and it might also be the wild card that the terrorist networks, and “Al Qaeda” in particular are holding back.

“It is possible that Al-Qaeda’s success with the September 11 attacks has set the bar too high for its current CBRN capabilities. Al-Qaeda may be concerned that a CBRN attack that ‘only’ kills dozens of people would be perceived as a relative failure and demonstrate its weakened position relative to its pre-9/11 stature,” Galatas said.

Galatas added that there is no indication that Al Qaeda has abandoned its pursuit of CBRN weapons, including so-called “dirty bombs”.

“The possibility of a patient Al Qaeda is a disturbing possibility worth remembering,” he said.

Al-Qaeda-Trained Norwegian Awaits Order To Attack West

It was only a matter of time before the terrorists got their hands on the following. From the CBS News website on Monday:

A Norwegian man has received terrorist training from al Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen and is awaiting orders to carry out an attack on the West, officials from three European security agencies told The Associated Press on Monday.

Western intelligence officials have long feared such a scenario — a convert to Islam who is trained in terrorist methods and can blend in easily in Europe and the United States, traveling without visa restrictions.

Officials from three European security agencies confirmed Monday the man is “operational,” meaning he has completed his training and is about to receive a target. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly. They declined to name the man, who has not been accused of a crime.

Norwegian? Oh well, so much for profiling…
