UPDATE: This from CNN, Bin Laden near Chitral, uptrail from Darkot and across alpine meadow?
According to a U.S. military intelligence official familiar with the hunt, bin Laden is likely hiding in an area called Chitral, in the far north of Pakistan, bounded by Afghanistan to the west and China to the north.
Contrary to popular belief, the official said, bin Laden most likely isn’t living in a cave but in a house, possibly with a family and no more than two bodyguards.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the hunt, said the thinking that bin Laden is in Chitral is based in part on trees that are peculiar to that region that can be seen in a 2003 video of bin Laden walking in a mountainous region.
In addition, the official said, the conclusion that bin Laden is in Chitral is based on the length of time it takes for bin Laden’s audiotapes to make their way to news outlets like Al-Jazeera when he comments on important events, such as the death of al Qaeda in Iraq leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It took three weeks for bin Laden’s reaction to appear on the world’s television screens.
Earlier I posted and retracted this report regarding Bin Laden, I am both updating and upgrading the report now that I remembered this earlier ADN Kronos Article that I joked about back in July, the timing is a week to a week and a half apart from the sighting reported by Hindustani Times near Darkot, Pakistan. Below you can see the July article, then my 8/20 writeup, which I retracted. Right now this appears to be more than just another false sighting.
The man Germans police agencies are seeking in the failed train bombings in Germany was arrested in Lebanon today:Â
Karlsruhe, 24 August (AKI) – A man suspected by German authorities of plotting to blow up passenger trains three weeks ago was arrested in Lebanon on Thursday. The federal prosecutor in Karlsruhe said Jihad Hamad, 20, of Lebanese origin, handed himself in to police in the port city of Tripoli. On Wednesday the German authorities issued an international arrest warrant for the man accusing him of membership of a terrorist group, attempted murder and attempting to cause an explotion. Another alleged train attacker, Lebanese student Youssef Mohammad, 21 was arrested in Kiel, Germany, last week.
The two supects were filmed by security cameras on 31 July at Cologne railway station. Police later found two explosive devices on separate trains – they had failed to go off because of a construction flaw.
I am guessing these two weren’t in the “Political Wing” of Hizb’Allah that German Leftists think Israel should be negotiating with.
Is this another YMM incident?It’s not, this one is a domestic dispute and suicide attempt by Christopher Williams. It’s unknown at this time, as Police have not yet released the name of the “shooter”. Right now they are billing it as a domestic dispute.Â They do have someone in custody after an elementary school in Essex, Vermont was attacked by a 20 27 year-old male shooter. There are two deaths reported, and three other casualties at this time.
