Doug Hagmann from the Northeast Intelligence Network stopped by the show to update us on the Terror Cell busted on the West Coast.

Al Qaeda Terrorists Arrested in California
Affadavit: "Hamid advised that he specifically requested to come to the United States to carry out his jihadi mission." "Potential targets for attack would include hospitals and large food stores."

AFFADAVIT
by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

8 June 2005: Lodi-- Federal agents have broken up an al Qaeda terrorist cell operating in the San Joaquin County city of Lodi, California, about 40 miles south of Sacramento. Agents of the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Hamid Hayat, 22, and his father Umer Hayat, 47, a Lodi ice cream truck driver on Sunday. The arrests took place less than a week after the younger Hayat was found aboard a San Francisco-bound plane even though his name appeared on a no-fly list of suspected Islamic terrorist operatives.

Hamid Hayat admitted attending al Qaeda training camps in Pakistan in 2003 and 2004 to learn "how to kill Americans." He was trained to use explosives and weapons, and practiced by using photographs of President Bush and other high-profile U.S. political figures as targets, according to court documents.

Hamid Hayat originally lied to FBI agents about whether he had received training, had his pick of where to carry out a terrorist attack, which potentially could have targeted hospitals and large food stores. Meanwhile, the task force arrested Hayat's father, Umer Hayat on charges that he lied about his son's involvement and his own financing of the terror camp and his son’s attendance, where he reportedly paid $100 each month to his son. Both suspects are currently being held in Sacramento County Jail.

Two More Arrested on Immigration Violations

Federal authorities also arrested Muhammed Adil Khan and Shabbir Ahmed on immigration violations and are being questioned about their role in potential terror plans in the U.S., the Northeast Intelligence Network has learned. Shabbir Ahmed was Imam of the Lodi Mosque, and Khan was a former imam who is leading efforts to build the Farooqia Islamic Center, including a school for children up to fourth grade. FBI agents searched Ahmed's poplar Street residence, located next door to the mosque, and another house on the 300 block of Acacia Street, about four blocks from the mosque. Both men were arrested after meeting separately with Umer Hayat on Saturday.

Interestingly, in the days following the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Islamic leader Khan condemned the attacks. Several months later, Khan joined the leaders of local Christian churches and a synagogue to issue a Declaration of Peace condemning terrorism and stressing the common origins of each religion. It is for this very reason that all Americans should become familiar with the Islamic term Taqqiyaa, which is the Islamic doctrine of deception of non-Muslims as permitted by the Qu'ran.

IRAQ: Sunni Arabs Accepting the Offer They Can't Refuse

June 9, 2005: More towns in Iraqi's "wild west" are making peace with the government. The usual drill is not another Fallujah, but a government official meeting with local tribal and religious leaders, where an offer is made. It is announced that Iraqi and American troops are coming. Neighborhoods that support the government will see little or no fighting as a search is made for weapons, bombs and the like. Neighborhoods that wish to resist will be hit hard. (unquote)
