Undie Bomber Hates Jews And Christians

From ABC News:

Underwear Bomber: New Video of Training, Martyrdom Statements

Prior to Suicide Mission, Abdulmutallab Says ‘Jews and the Christians’ Are the Enemy

By MATTHEW COLE, BRIAN ROSS and NASSER ATTA

April 26, 2010—New videos produced by al Qaeda in Yemen show the accused underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and others in his training class firing weapons at a desert camp whose targets included the Jewish star, the British Union Jack and the letters "UN."

The videos, to be broadcast Monday on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, appear to support Abdulmutallab’s statements to the FBI that there are "others like me" who also trained with him in Yemen to carry out attacks against U.S. and western targets.

The tape also includes an apparent martyrdom statement in Arabic from the 23-year old Nigerian justifying his actions against "the Jews and the Christians and their agents." He says, "the enemy is in your lands with their armies, the Jews and the Christians and their agents." He reads several passages from the Koran and adds, "God said if you do not fight back, He will punish you and replace you."

Abdulmutallab was arrested on Christmas Day in Detroit after he allegedly attempted to set off a bomb on a Northwest Airlines jet. He has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges but U.S. authorities say he is now cooperating in the investigation.

The videos, obtained by a Yemeni journalist working for ABC News, are the first to show Abdulmutallab with the al Qaeda group. In the video he and others use automatic weapons to fire at targets that include a Jewish star, the British Union Jack and the a symbol of the United Nations.

Some, but not all, of the faces of others at the training camp are blurred in the video released by al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula. Their logo is embedded in a corner of the screen.

"The other people in the video are presumably the people we are still looking for," said Richard Clarke, an ABC News consultant and former White House counter-terrorism official. The video also shows the purported al Qaeda fighters in Yemen firing at what appears to be an unmanned surveillance plane overhead.

As ABC News first reported, the U.S. launched a series of cruise missile strikes against suspected al Qaeda camps in Yemen, beginning Dec. 18.

There is no indication of when the tape was recorded but U.S. officials believe Abdulmutallab was in Yemen between August and left in mid-December of 2009 on his suicide mission.

There was no immediate comment from Abdulmutallab’s lawyer about his statements on the tape.

It’s almost as if there is a pattern to these crazy terrorists.

    Surely the panty incinerator would not have expressed his sensitivity and cultural heritage at his fellow passengers if not for Bushitler or conservatives such as Mark Steyn.

    After all nothing says “agent” like a few men, women, and children flying home on Christmas. The phrase “ticket agent” must have confused him.

    The NYT should run another piece on Mr. panties so we can better understand his motives. New data shows that being rich and living in London neighborhood may lead one to terrorism. Maybe it was the jelly donut that he ate on the flight.

    (sarc!)

    These Al Kider guys are getting bolder. Couldn’t have anything to do with the moron in the White House, could it?

    Steve is onto something.

    There must be some characteristic that these guys have in common…..some linkage that we could use to identify them before their crimes.

    Other than religion, nationality, ideology, skin color, hair color, names, ages, sex, hatreds, written statements, leaders, schooling, and attitudes toward women and infidels. All of those are, of course, out of bounds.

    There must be SOMETHING we could use.

    All Barack Channel – doing the Obama propaganda that keeps the masses – stupid and in devotion to The Won.

    Can’t admit that on The Won’s watch – someone, anyone, most importantly the radical islamic terrorists (oops I said it again) don’t love The Won & America again (since it apparently got it’s ‘righteousness’ back). That just would not do any good since blame booosh worked so well to get The Won elected (even though he wasn’t running against evil bushitlerburtonco).

    Obama is comforting & protecting the “the convert or kill” die hards, for example stonewalling the Ft. Hood probe for months now.

    NewWeek: Senators Accuse Obama Administration of Stonewalling Ft. Hood Probe by Mark Hosenball Apr 15 2010

    Leaders of the Senate’s principal oversight committee are accusing the Obama administration of stonewalling an investigation they have been conducting into the background to the deadly shootings at the Ft. Hood military base last Nov. 5, for which Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan was arrested and charged.

    Sen. Joseph Lieberman, the independent Democrat from Connecticut who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and the panel’s ranking Republican, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, are expected on Thursday to release correspondence with the administration requesting documents and witnesses who have information about how Defense and law- enforcement agencies, including the FBI, handled information about Hasan’s alleged erratic behavior and contacts with an Islamic extremist preacher in the months before his shooting rampage. …

    Documentation about the committee’s investigation and dealings with the administration can be found via this link on the panel’s Web site.
