The recent release of several Al Qaeda prisoners, as detailed by Bill Roggio at The Fourth Rail looks very ominous for Waziristan if the truce is a sham. It appears to theÂ knowledgable as if it might be, but something is still not adding up here.
The Pope recently gave a speech in which he he quoted theÂ Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus who severely indicted radical Islamism and forced conversions. Since they have trouble understanding parts of speech, like modifiers, the Palestinians prove his the fourteenth century Emperor’s point in modern times.

Is it time for the murder mullahs to reap what they sow? Is it time for the islamic death-priests to die themselves? Will this generational conflict, this clash of civilizations, this misunderstanding as CAIR would have it, be resolved until the real instigators find Allah?
Urgent news from Abu Dawood, the newly appointed commander of the al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan: Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S. Muslims living in the United States should leave the country without further warning. The attack will be commandeered by Adnan el Shukrijumah (“Jaffer Tayyer” or “Jafer the Pilot”), a naturalized American citizen, who was raised in Brooklyn and educated in southern Florida. The al Qaeda operatives who will launch this attack are awaiting final orders. They remain in place in cities throughout the country. Many are masquerading as Christians and have adopted Christian names.
I am not certain as to how reliable this report is, but if true should shed more light on why it’s urgent to find Adnan G. El Shurkrijumah.
The FBI is searching for Adnan G. El Shukrijumah.
The drive back from TulsaÂ was beautiful, the fall is the best time of year in the midwest — the temperature isÂ perfect, there’s alwaysÂ a breeze and the sun is shines from a porcelain blue sky. You pass by the wavingÂ fields preparing for the harvests that feed the world, and the ranches with horses frolicing in the re-greened fields. You roll through wooded hills, across riversÂ winding to sea and past quiet towns where folks areÂ happy and smiling.
Following up on the Waziristan Treaty, we have tribal leaders and elders verifying that the pact was with the tribes, not the Taliban as ABC mis-reported. We have this article from the Pakistan Observer
Nato forces have cornered a large contingent of Taliban fighters, and they are taking them apart piecemeal. Meanwhile, “Taliban Bob” still has the home phone number of aÂ Reuters reporterÂ and keeps calling in to say the equivalent of “There are no American Tanks in Baghdad!”
If you’ve been reading Noblesse awhile, you know my posts usually are not this brief, this is a tag post to counter the g-bomb.
Interesting note from Chitral in light of the recent events and speculation regarding the impact and effects of the Waziristan Pact, from the Chitral News:
In closing statements from their meeting in Afghanistan, Musharaf and Karzai pledge mutual support, and an end to blaming each other in the fight against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and renewed vigor against terrorism.Â This is the second part of their meetings after the North Waziristan treaty in Pakistan. Since then 70 Aghan expatriate families are now migrating back from Pakistan to Afghanistan.
There’s a lot of furor over Pakistan’s recent pact with the tribes in North Waziristan, but if you’ve been following the war updates here, you should have seen this coming.
The first thing to remember is that these people are not monolithically Taliban, as ABC news would have us believe (SituationÂ DeterioratingÂ in Afghanistan and the War on TerrorÂ is the Action line for the DNC, Richard Clarke, and the liberal press right now.)
