Minnesota ( AMERICAN Boys leave to become al Qaeda members ) Traitors

Young American men continue to slip through a terrorist recruiting pipeline from the homeland to join the ranks of jihadists half a world away in East Africa, with two going as recently as three months ago, according to federal officials.
The FBI confirmed a report by Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) that in July two young men disappeared from their neighborhoods in Minneapolis and are believed to have traveled to Somalia to join al-Shabaab, the embattled al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group.

Under "Operation Rhino," for years the FBI has been investigating what has been described as a recruiting pipeline from the Twin Cities, which boast large Somali immigrant populations, to Somalia. Both top U.S. officials and at least one prominent member of al-Shabaab said Americans account for dozens of the terror group's fighters. A 2011 Congressional report put the number around 40.
"Minnesota represented!" writes American-born rapping jihadist Omar Hammami in an autobiography posted online in May, though he claimed most of the U.S. recruits were already dead. "Those Minnesota brother[s] have almost all left their mark on the [jihad] and most have received martyrdom, while the rest are still waiting."
Kyle Loven, chief division counsel for the FBI's Minneapolis field office, said recruits going to Somalia from Minnesota "continues to be a matter of grave concern and the FBI remains fully committed to resolving this situation."
The FBI said that in the recent case, two young Minnesota men, 19-year-old Mohamed Osman and 20-year-old Omar Ali Farah, left their homes for their trek to Somalia in mid-July. Osman's family told MPR he was religious, but they were stunned when he disappeared.
"It made me mad because he didn't speak to no relative about it," Osman's cousin, Jamal Salim, said. "We're heartbroken about it because he's like our sibling. Imagine not knowing what's going on with your own brother -- how he's been feeling, who he's been talking to, and what they're telling him. We lost a brother, and I don't know how to get him back."
Earlier this month some details about how exactly young men are recruited for jihad emerged during the federal trial of a man who was convicted of recruiting more than 20 fighters for al-Shabaab in America in 2007, according to The Associated Press.
At the trial of Mahamud Said Omar, three former recruits who had survived their trip to Somalia only to return to the U.S. testified that they were talked into fighting by charismatic, devout older men who promised paradise for those who died in combat against "invaders."

ARIZONA SAFEWAY (Police want to know "who CUT the CHEESE " ) 700 in damage

Sheriff’s deputies want to know who cut the cheese.
And the meat, too.
In what seems to be the latest in a rash of crimes against meat, an employee at a Foothills Safeway reported a man with a knife in the store cutting open packages of cheese, meat and other perishables, causing $700 in damage, according to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report.
The incident, earlier this month, “originated from the individual coming in and stating that he had bought meat and wanted a refund. However, he did not bring the product he wanted a refund for,” the deputy reported. The man didn’t have a receipt either and was refused a refund.

The man, who was seen on surveillance video, became angry went into the meat and deli section of the grocery store and “vandalized packaged meat and other foods for sale.”
After attacking the meat, the disgruntled man went to the frozen food section where he went after packages of sausage before moving onto the refrigerated section where he cut the cheese.
The man is described as being in his mid-60s, balding and wearing glasses.
Earlier this month, at a south side Walmart Neighborhood Market, a man unsuccessfully tried to boost a shopping cart full of beef.
In late September two incidents of meat thievery were reported to the sheriff’s department.
The first thief made off with five packages of meat from a north side Safeway.
The second wasn’t as successful. The man stole a rotisserie chicken from a display at the front of a north side Walmart, but as he peddled away on his bicycle, he dropped the chicken and lost his cowboy hat.

AZ Assistant Attorney general ( Has a CRIMINAL PAST or RAP sheet )

If you needed the services of a criminal attorney, would you hire a lawyer with no experience in criminal law, who had been suspended from the State Bar of Arizona for 120 days, had not practiced law in five years, and who was still on probation for her past misdeeds?
Tom Horne
New Times
Tom Horne
Horne confidante Carmen Chenal is now in charge of foreign extraditions.
www.facebook.com
 
Add to this a DUI charge pleaded down to reckless driving, a bankruptcy, and a history of mental and physical issues that may or may not have caused the misconduct that led to the lawyer's suspension.
With that sort of record, I think most folks would pass, as there are a lot of lawyers in the sea with more of the right kind of experience and lacking black marks on their careers.
Not Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, who has hired his longtime political crony Carmen Chenal as an assistant attorney general in charge of foreign extraditions at a salary of $108,000 a year.
Chenal's expertise is in construction and real estate law, and she briefly was a partner with Horne in his firm before Horne became Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2003.
In 2006, Horne hired his buddy at the Department of Education as a program specialist in special education, at a $62,947 salary, even though she had no experience in the field.
But lack of experience was the least of Chenal's problems. Just a year earlier, the Bar had suspended her law license for four months and ordered her to pay $2,500 in restitution to one of her victims, as well as foot the $1,018 bill for the Bar's investigation. She also was placed on probation for two years.
The allegations against Chenal were substantial. In one case, Chenal took part of a client's settlement money and applied it to his bill in another case without his permission.
In that second matter, Chenal's suit on behalf of her client was thrown out of court, with attorney fees in the amount of $17,037 awarded to the defendant. Chenal's client wanted her to appeal the decision, but she failed to do so. The client was so ticked off that he fired her.
In another matter, Chenal took on a domestic-relations case in Illinois. One little problem: She was not licensed to practice in Illinois. The Arizona Supreme Court hearing officer's report on Chenal's suspension noted her "unauthorized practice of law" as her "most serious violation."
But there's much more.
From 2001 to 2003, she bounced three checks for filing fees to the Clerk of the Maricopa County Superior Court.
In a medical-malpractice case, she sent a letter from one of her expert witnesses to opposing counsel, after she allegedly had "whited out" corrections the expert had made in the margins. Like bouncing checks to the clerk of court, altering such documents is a no-no.
A summary of her disciplinary history on the state Bar's website notes Chenal's bumbling in another case.
"Ms. Chenal listed a party but did not provide any allegations against the person in the civil complaint; presented claims barred by the statute of limitations; and after listing many witnesses on the disclosure statement, only one testified, and the testimony was inconsistent with that listed on the disclosure statement."
Despite the details of her suspension, Horne defended employing Chenal at the Department of Education to New Times in a 2006 article ("Changing the Chenal," April 27), describing her as a "first-rate lawyer" undone by various family issues.
"I think we're lucky to get her," he said at the time.
Interestingly, Chenal also declared bankruptcy in 2004, forcing her to sell her car to pay her debts. That might have been for the best, since she'd been charged with a DUI in 2001, which according to the record on file with the Dreamy Draw Justice Court, she pleaded down to a reckless-driving charge.
In 2002, Chenal was charged with driving on a suspended license in Carefree Municipal Court. The case was dismissed.
Of course, Horne has had his own problems, albeit in the more distant past. In 1970, his investment firm T.C. Horne & Co. went belly-up, resulting in a lifetime trading ban with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A fact he failed to disclose in his law firm's annual reports to the Arizona Corporation Commission.
So maybe Horne has a soft heart for fellow lawyers who've messed up heretofore, like Chenal. And it probably didn't hurt that Chenal has been a stalwart campaign operative for Republican Horne in more than one race.
In any case, Chenal waited five years to apply to the Bar for reinstatement.
Because she'd waited so long, she had to go through a formal reinstatement process, with evidence, witnesses, and a hearing, at which her counsel argued that Chenal should be readmitted without having to participate in the Bar's Member Assistance Program, part of the probation process in which a delinquent lawyer receives counseling and is monitored closely.
Essentially, Chenal wanted to be readmitted without doing the two years' probation she had agreed to in 2005. But the hearing revealed the extent of Chenal's past mental problems.
Chenal, her lawyer, and her doctors argued that her life spiraled out of control from 1999 to 2003. In 1999, she divorced her spouse of many years, Tom Chenal, who, oddly, is employed by Horne as the chief counsel of the AG's public advocacy division.

AZ Attorney General ( Having AFFAIR with assistant Attorney General Carmen Chenal ) FBI Alleges

PHOENIX (AP) - FBI agents allege Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne left the scene of a minor automobile accident because he was having an affair with a female employee in the car he was driving and didn't want their relationship to be reported.

An FBI report released Tuesday by Phoenix police who investigated the accident said FBI agents learned during a campaign finance investigation that Horne was having an affair with the woman, Assistant Attorney General Carmen Chenal, and that they used her apartment as a rendezvous site.
"Though motive is not an element of the criminal statute listed above," the report said, referring to Arizona's hit-and-run law, "it stands to reason that Horne did not want any record of his presence in the parking garage of Chenal's apartment complex thus he did not leave a note."
The parking garage for Chenal's apartment complex was the scene of the accident, which occurred as Horne backed into a parked Range Rover while driving a car that Chenal had borrowed from a co-worker. Horne was cited last week on a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of a collision or unattended vehicle.
Carmen Chenal (has a Rap sheet or criminal past ) see her blog story !
                                                        (What the Hell )?
The FBI report was among documents, evidence photos and audio recordings of interviews released to The Associated Press under a public records request.
Chenal declined comment when contacted Tuesday by the AP, and Horne did not immediately return a call for comment.

EUREKA Ca ( Another Shark ATTACK victim in hospital )

Surfer hospitalized after Northern California shark attack

 

A surfer was hospitalized with serious injuries after a shark attack Tuesday off Northern California.

The 25-year-old surfer, whose name had not been released at the time of this post, was reported to be in fair condition after undergoing surgery at St. Joseph Hospital in Humboldt County.


This marks the second shark attack off California in the past week. The first, off Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County, resulted in the death of 39-year-old surfer Francisco Javier Solorio Jr. An expert determined that attack to have likely involved a white shark measuring 15-16 feet.
This is feeding season for white sharks off Northern and Central California. Adult white sharks typically prey on elephant seals and smaller pinnipeds.
Tuesday's attack, which removed a large crescent-shaped bite from the victim's board and left him with a 14-inch bite wound in the rib and hip area, occurred at about noon at Bunker Surf Spot, near what is known as the North Jetty.
According to the Eureka Times-Standard, the surfer was transported from the scene by the driver of a black pickup. He was met by emergency personnel when the truck arrived on Highway 101.
David Hargrave, one of several witnesses, said the victim managed to make it ashore on his own power, but was bleeding profusely.
Jason Gabriel, who owns the pickup, said he had just finished surfing and happened to be driving by when the victim was being assisted from the water's edge. Of the ride to the highway Gabriel said, "I was probably doing 110 mph, I've never seen anything like this in my life."
Gabriel said the victim looked to be in bad shape, and might have been going into shock.

"It punctured all the way through," Gabriel said. "He was going, 'Oh my God, oh my God."

The victim's name and other details will be posted here when they become available.

MEXICO (Cartel RANCH seized 100 grenades and 3 rockets found ) Michoacan


Borderland Beat
In Michoacan, army troops seized a ranch allegedly owned by Enrique Plancarte Solis, "La Chiva"/ Kike Plancarte or just "Kiki," noted as one of the main leaders of the criminal organization The Knights Templar.
The Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) said yesterday in a statement that the confiscation took place last Saturday after a gun battle with an number of people in which one of the suspects died.
The Mexican army seized weapons, drugs, and money on a ranch in the western state of Michoacan apparently owned by Enrique Plancarte Solís, one of the alleged leaders of the criminal organization the Knights Templar.
The rest of the "Knights" managed to escape from the ranch, located in the town of Los Cuiniques, in the town of Apatzingán. The ranch "was used by organized crime for various illegal purposes."
 
In the building, military personnel found 15 handguns, 19 rifles, 1 Barret rifle, more than 100 hundred grenades, three rockets, 1 anti-tank rocket launchers, 339 magazines of different calibers, over 22,000 cartridges and five swords.
Also confiscated 1.1 million pesos (equivalent to about $85,000), $3123.10 in American dollars, two vehicles, and small amounts of marijuana, cocaine and crystal.
 
According to the Ministry of Defense, this operation "managed to affect the Knights of Templar's criminal organization through limiting their operational and logistical structures and their areas of influence."
The Knights Templar is a pseudorreligious organization that emerged din 2011 after the death of the leader of the Familia Michoacana, Nazario Moreno Gonzalez, alias "El Chayo", in a clash with security forces in 2010.
Soon the group, led by Servando Gómez Martínez, alias "La Tuta"; Enrique Plancarte, "La Chiva," Dionisio Loya Plantare, "el Tio," managed to gain control of the drug trade in Michoacán and extended their area of influence to neighboring regions.

MOSCOW ( MISSING Ship with 700 tons of gold ore and 9 crew members )

MOSCOW (AP) — A vessel with a nine-person crew and 700 tons of gold ore onboard has gone missing in stormy seas off Russia's Pacific Coast.
The ship sent a distress call on Sunday as it was sailing from the coastal town of Neran to Feklistov Island in the Sea of Okhotsk.

The vessel, hired by mining company Polymetal, was carrying 700 tons of gold ore from one deposit to another where it was to be processed. Gold ore is the material from which gold is extracted and contains only a small percentage of the precious metal.
Polymetal's spokesman on Monday would not estimate the value of the cargo.
The company said it has shipped ore via that route before, and there was nothing unusual in shipping it by the sea.

Dead Man Walking ( Woman gets her day to watch her daughters killer DIE)

Friends, family members and strangers have helped Tina Curl's grim dream come to fruition-to watch the man who raped and murdered her 9-year-old daughter be strapped to a gurney, fight for his final breath as lethal drugs course through his veins.
Curl, 50, spent months raising money for the trip from New York to South Dakota where she'll get a "front row seat" to watch Donald Moeller be executed. The execution could happen any time between today and Nov. 3.

                                                            Dead man walking
"I have waited 22 long years for this," Curl, who has arrived in Sioux Falls, S.D., told ABCNews.com during her fundraising drive. "He watched her die and I am going to watch him die."
Becky O'Connell went to the convenience store to buy candy on May 8, 1990. The following morning, her body was found in a wooded area in Lincoln County, S.D.
An autopsy found Becky had been raped vaginally and anally and died of a cut to the jugular vein of her neck, according to court documents.
Curl and her husband, Dave, who was Becky's stepfather, had lived in South Dakota for five months at the time of the murder. The couple later relocated to Lake Luzerne, N.Y.
"After this she wasn't going to stay in that state," said Rhonda Springer, a longtime friend of Curl who is helping to spearhead the fundraiser to send Tina and Dave Curl to South Dakota to witness the execution.
The Curl family is driving 1,400 miles from their home in New York since Tina Curl said she has a bad heart and is unable to fly.
The couple said they would go if they could raise between $3,000 to $4,000, which they estimated would cover their gas and stay in a motel during the one week time frame when Moeller is scheduled to die.
Tina Curl said she receives a $721 disability check each month that "doesn't even cover the bills." Dave Curl is currently laid off and looking for work.
Although a one week window has been set for Moeller's execution, the actual date of lethal injection is at the warden's discretion, with 48 hours' notice required, Curl said.
"It means everything," she said. "I ain't only doing it for me. I am doing it for Becky."

CHINA ( A Rebel Force of protesters shouts at chinese government ) Ningbo City

NINGBO, China (AP) — Thousands of protesters marched through an eastern Chinese city on Sunday, shouting for fellow citizens to join them in demanding that the government halt the expansion of a petrochemical factory because of pollution fears.
 
The demonstration in Ningbo city in wealthy Zhejiang province is the latest this year over fears of health risks from industrial projects, as Chinese who have seen their living standards improve become more outspoken against environmentally risky projects in their areas.
Such protests are exactly what the Chinese leadership does not want ahead of next month's once-a-decade transition of power, with stability being paramount.

"The government hides information from the people. They are only interested in scoring political points and making money," said one protester, Luo Luan, who works in the insurance industry. "They don't care about destroying the environment or damaging people's lives."
Hundreds of residents headed from a city square toward the offices of the municipal government early Sunday. They were stopped by police at the gate, where they shouted for the release of people reportedly detained a day earlier.

MIRAMAR ( F/A 18 Hornet squadron SENT to the MIDDLE EAST ) Heavily ARMED JETS

Amid mounting concern over Iran’s nuclear program and violence elsewhere in the region, U.S. Central Command quietly dispatched a Marine fighter jet squadron from San Diego to an undisclosed country in the Middle East, U-T San Diego has learned.
The deployment follows threats by the U.S. and Israel of military strikes if needed to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
NO COMMENT ON MISSION
 
At the same time, the conflict in Syria is threatening to drag Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan into war, Iraq is beset by renewed violence, and terrorist groups hoping to capitalize on political upheaval in the region covet Syria’s chemical weapons and Libyan arms.
Against this tense geopolitical backdrop, aviation spotters tracked a dozen jets from Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 314, an F/A-18 Hornet squadron based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, en route in late September through Europe.
The heavily armed jets — capable of firing 2,000-pound laser-guided bombs, cluster munitions, air-to-air missiles and a six-barrel 20 mm gun — are used for a variety of missions, including ground attack, escort, enemy air defense suppression, reconnaissance and close air support of ground forces.
U.S. Central Command and the Marine command in the region declined to say which country the squadron deployed to or to comment in detail on its mission, citing political and security sensitivities of the host nation and its neighbors.

Al Qaida ( LEADER urged Muslims to KIDNAP Americans ) Thats a threat - time for Drone strike

CAIRO (AP) — The leader of al-Qaida has urged Muslims to kidnap Westerners to exchange for imprisoned jihadists, including a blind cleric serving a life sentence in the United States for a 1993 plot to blow up New York City landmarks.
In an undated two-hour videotape posted this week on militant forums, the Egyptian-born jihadist Ayman al-Zawahri also urged support for Syria's uprising and called for the implementation of Islamic Shariah law in Egypt.

He said that abducting nationals of "countries waging wars on Muslims" is the only way to free "our captives, and Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman," the Egyptian cleric.
"This is the only language which they understand," said al-Zawahri, appearing in his customary white turban and robe. "We will keep on seizing more ... until we free our captives."
There was little clue to his whereabouts from the video, shot against a backdrop of brown curtains.
He periodically releases video and audio statements. Two weeks ago, an audio recording by him urged holy war over an amateur anti-Islam film produced in the United States. He released a video on this year's anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, claiming that his warriors "defeated America in Iraq".
Time for "lone wolf " strike !

Freeing Abdel-Rahman has become a rallying cause for Islamic militants and jihadists. A group named after him has claimed responsibility before for a June assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which caused no casualties. It caused no casualties, but a bigger attack on Sept. 11 claimed lives of four Americans including the U.S. Ambassador in Libya Chris Stevens.
Relatives and supporters of Abdel-Rahman have been holding a sit-in next to the U.S. Embassy in Cairo for months. Egypt's new Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, under pressure from leading Egyptian jihadists recently released from prison, vowed to push for his release.

TUCSON Az ( Former head of Hells Angels Chapter Arrested for Murder )

The former head of the local Hells Angels chapter faces a first-degree murder charge after Pima County Sheriff's deputies found a body buried on his property south of Three Points.
William Gary Potter, 54, was booked Tuesday into the Pima County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Randall Scott Pfeil, 50, said Deputy Jason Ogan, a Sheriff's Department spokesmen.
Potter's wife, 51-year-old Karen Ann Potter, was also arrested and booked on suspicion of hindering prosecution, Ogan said.

Pfeil's body was found overnight in a shallow grave at a home in the 17300 block of South Sierrita Mountain Road, where deputies had gone to Monday afternoon as part of a missing persons investigation, Ogan said.
Pfeil was reported missing on Friday, Ogan said.
Deputies found an area of disturbed ground on the property, which according to Pima County Assessor's Office online records is owned by the Potters.
When deputies dug up the grave they found Pfeil, whose body had "obvious signs of trauma," Ogan said. An autopsy will determine cause of death, he said.
William Potter, also known as "Tramp," is a former head of the Tucson chapter of the Hells Angels, an international motorcycle club that has frequently been tied to criminal activity.
Potter was arrested in 1999 after federal agents raided a downtown business where he worked and found a cache of weapons, according to Arizona Daily Star archives. Potter was charged with felon in possession of weapons, and after pleading guilty in 2002 was sentenced to time served, federal court records show
