U.S. OFFICIALS: AL QAEDA PLANS MAJOR ASSASSINATION; BIN LADEN WILL SIGNAL ATTACK

U.S. intelligence officials say a high-profile political assassination, triggered by the public release of a new message from Osama bin Laden, will lead off the next major al Qaeda terrorist attack, the WASHINGTON TIMES has learned.

The assassination plan is among new details of al Qaeda plots disclosed by U.S. officials familiar with intelligence reports who, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the killing could be carried out against a U.S. or foreign leader either in the United States or abroad.

The new details of al Qaeda's plans were found on a laptop computer belonging to arrested al Qaeda operative Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan of Pakistan, Bill Gertz is set to report in a page one blockbuster.

'We're talking about planning at the screwdriver level,' one official said. 'It is very detailed.'

15. Here's something about the curse.


Tecumsehs Curse

After the historical battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, legend has it that the Shawnee Indian Chief, Tecumseh, sent General William Henry Harrison, via released prisoners, a message a prophecy that history justifiably labeled, 'Tecumseh's Curse':



"'Harrison will not win this year to be the Great Chief. But he may win next year. If he does...He will not finish his term. He will die in his office.' 'No president has ever died in office,' declared a visitor. 'But Harrison will die I tell you. And when he dies you will remember my brother Tecumseh's death. You think that I have lost my powers. I who caused the sun to darken and Red Men to give up firewater. But I tell you Harrison will die. And after him, every Great Chief chosen every 20 years thereafter will die. And when each one dies, let everyone remember the death of our people.'"



In the year 2000, another election occurs in a 'zero year.' Does a danger of death lurk for a President elected this year? Does it follow that we should be scrutinizing vice-presidential candidates as likely candidates for President?



In 1840, the sinister presidential death cycle foretold by Shawnee Chief, Tecumseh, began and every sitting President elected in a year ending in zero died in office, except for President Ronald Reagan who luckily survived, but still endured a serious assassination attempt.....

26. Not all assassinations
This is from memory, but . . .

1840 - Harrison. I think he's the one who delivered the longest inaugural address ever in bitter cold and died a month later of pneumonia.

1860 - Lincoln. Assassinated

1880 - Garfield, I think. Shot by a disappointed office-seater.

1900 - McKinley. Also assassinated, I think by an anarchist.

1920 - Harding. Natural Causes.

1940 - Roosevelt. Natural causes.

1960 - JFK.

1980 - Reagan.

60. Great book on Garfield's assassination
"Dark Horse," fairly recent.
Right now I'm reading one on McKinley's assassination, "Murdering McKinley," by Eric Rauchway. That was a political assassination, too, like Garfield's, and it did change things. It ushered in the Progressive era with Teddy Roosevelt.

79. Good thing Robert Todd Lincoln isn't campaigning for Chimpo...
Edited on Wed Aug-11-04 06:43 AM by alg0912
Robert Todd Lincoln was in close proximity of three out of 4 presidential assassinations (his father, Garfield and McKinley)...

http://members.aol.com/RVSNorton/Lincoln41.html

<snip>
Robert Lincoln, the President's son, was in the White House when his father was shot. On July 2, 1881, Robert was with President James A. Garfield at Washington's Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station when the President was shot by assassin Charles J. Guiteau. In his own words, Robert reached the stricken Garfield within 15 seconds of the shooting. Finally, on September 6, 1901, when President William McKinley was shot by Leon F. Czolgosz at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, Robert was on a train just arriving in Buffalo.
</snip>

Don't forget, Kennedy was riding in a Lincoln Continental when he was shot! ;)

On edit - Uh-oh... I heard a rumor that Chimpo still plays with Lincoln Logs... :evilgrin:

61. I think that's been the plan all along.
I've been saying it for a while, and no one takes me seriously, but I think * has more to fear from the RNC operatives than he does from terrorists. His own people have said that if his approval numbers dip down to 40%, he can't win. He marches closer to that magic number every day, and if he reaches it, watch out. He'd better not ride in any open convertibles. If you ask me, it's a perfect setup. The pugs lose nothing, since shrub does nothing but fund raise, and a dead shrub would probably be a win fall. And think of the sympathy vote...

OK, I'll admit the obvious flaw in my conspiracy theory: Cheney. A dead bush leaves them with a man no mother could love (or even tolerate). So they have to get another patsy at the last minute (thank god arnie was born in Hungary) to front for Cardinal Richelieu the next four years. No biggie...

93. Maybe *CHENEY* Will Fulfill the Curse!

After all, Tecunseh's curse does NOT target "The President"! It targets the "Great Chief"!

Whatever The Shrubbery *is*, it's NOT the great chief!

That *also* explains WHY Cheney was hidden away on 9/11 and * was running around the country!

This party knows which side of the toast the butthole is on!

33. Not his "Dad"... His "DADDY"...
It's one thing for a grown man to call his father "Daddy" (as a name, or as a PROPER noun)... but it's quite another unsettling thing to hear a grown man (Bush*) to refer to his father as his "daddy".

"He tried to kill my daddy." -- GW Bush

I think that's the quote.

-- Allen

Edited on Tue Aug-10-04 11:02 PM by Stuckinthebush
Whether or not they plan on a "major assassination" is not the point. They have succeeding in keeping America scared to death. They have succeeded in limiting the rights of Americans. They have succeed in making America the pariah of the world. They have succeeded in getting Saddam out of Iraq. They have succeeded in ensuring a vast number of recruits continue to join up.

All they needed was a bonehead like George in the White House to make sure the plan went though.

It is simply amazing that some Americans still believe that George will be the best person to protect the US from terror.

and we hung ourself.

It is remarkable that after 911, America has shown itself to be such a flimsy facade. Not the great and wise country it had deluded itself it was. I, as an American, am ashamed that we didn't use the oportunity of 911 to rise above our pettiness and lead the world to a better place.

We have just dug our collective self into a hole, and the rest of the world will happily bury us, given the chance.

How could this have been so wisely planned by our adversaries? It boggles the mind.

95. The "we" is part of the advocacy of rising above the pettiness
Edited on Wed Aug-11-04 11:27 AM by indigobusiness
... we are responsible for the govt we empower. "We" are the govt.
Until we take collective responsibility, and stop squabbling like children, we will continue to bail a sinking ship.

Even though Bush has shown himself to be reckless and colossally misguided beyond all expectations, blaming Bush and scapegoating is part of the problem, not the solution.

I don't know if 'they' were surprised, or not. Who can say? It is clear they were betting we would foolishly self-distruct in our unwise reaction to their provocations. That is clear.

59. I'm thinking they would target congressmen
Seems like they have no security looking after them and it would be a relatively easy thing to pull off. Easier to pull off than blowing up a building and just as effective.
Think about it...forcing every congressman to walk around with armed bodyguards. It would have the aesthetic of a 3rd world dictatorship.

45. If I may...
I made the suggestion a while ago that this would probably happen. If you think about it, what could be better for * if they 'foil' this plot at the last moment, but publicize the notion that the 'terrorists' were planning an attack on *, but not Kerry, because they are more afraid of * and his determination to 'Git 'em'. That exactly how it will be spun, mark my words.

50. It's Not Bush* that "Al Qaeda" Would be Assassinating. It's Kerry!
Al Qaeda is just about the only entity other than Halliburton to
benefit from the Boosh pResidency. They might FAKE an assassination
attempt on Bush* to help him get re-elected, or they might kill our
candidate if they can't stop him from being elected any other way.

Bush* is to the Bin Ladins as Professor Quirell was to Lord Voldemort.
Did you ever wonder why you never see the back of Bush*'s head?

56. Yes, I would think Kerry has more to fear than Bush
Bush and Al Queda have satisfied certain of the other's needs, whether by design or by accident is for each of us to decide for ourselves. Kerry, on the other hand may not provide the simple boogie man that Ossama requires, and has found in Bush.

Of course the BFEE may want to get Kerry out the way, and blame it on Ossama. Again, whether this seems possible is up to each person to decide for themselves.

I, too, have done planning at the screwdriver level, and you wake up with one hell of a hangover. Most of the time you can't remember what you said anyway.

62. Washington Times owned by madman
Rev. Moon of moonies fame... this feb or about, had himself crowned in the senate office bldg, following revelation to him that these people's spirits had declared him a great person:
Buddha
Jesus
Karl Marx
Hitler
Stalin
all the dead US presidents

I think he has said elsewhere that he is the reincarnation of Jesus.

At a hospital intake room, i believe anyone saying exactly those words, could easily be committed.

He is said to have a billion.

WT paper is famously far RW.

It's credibility is at the level of mud. So is the Drudge report.
How, indeed, can anyone stand the authoritaian-pompous voice of Drudge?

66. this "anybody but bush" comment is so totally partisan that it's sickening
whoever planned that little tidbit is working directly with rove.

"The goal of the next attack is twofold: to damage the U.S. economy and to undermine the U.S. election," the official said. "The view of al Qaeda is 'anybody but Bush.'"


in reality the implication is to assassinate "anybody but bush." bin laden NEEDS bush to further his agenda. once Kerry gets things going smoothly over in Iraq and has cooperation from everyone, the terrorist cells training and being recruited in Iraq will be threatened. right now, with bush's mayhem, Iraq is going to be set to export a whole new crop of energized, willing fundamentalist youth, courtesy of bush jr.

67. And that comment calls into question the credibility of anything...
in the entire article.

"The view of al Qaeda is 'anybody but Bush.'"

Unless they mean Al Qaeda fears the election of anybody but Bush, who, it seems to me, has played right into their hands --

74. You don't have to have WMDs to be a terrorist.
All you have to do is succeed at terrorizing people.

The Bush junta has succeeded at this for the last three years.

The fact that 42% of Americans support the ones who are truly keeping them in a state of fear? Stockholm Syndrome.

I'm glad they have it narrowed down -- to every single leader in the world and anywhere on the planet.

Sure sounds like a plan detailed at the "screwdriver level."

The source or souse for this info probably is at least 10 years old just like the plane that crashed in the WH on 9/11 many years before 9/11!

What's next?

Ancient pseudo Al-Queda plot to assassinate George Washington by giving him colored tomato (red=death) juice?

Al-Queda grab secret time machines to go back in time and...?

Frightened public gleefully forks over more dough to companies that pretend to protect them from terra but donate lavishly to W.

91. Not that I know anything about astrology,
but when I read this post I immediately thought of something I came across a couple weeks ago.

http://astroinfo.ro/eng/articles/gwb.php
"There is a terrible concentration of negative aspects by all astrological methods that highly suggest that GWB's life will end violently this summer, on August 19, 2004."

http://www.astrodatabank.com/NM/Feedback.asp?ChartID=35...
Shannon's posting "It is interesting that there have been no assassination attempts made on this president yet...Never before have I seen a chart that made me gasp in fear before. It's worse than I thought!"

Hope it doesn't happen. As somebody said further up the thread, we do not need this man to become a martyr.
