Al-Qaida to Unleash Female Non-Arab Looking Suicide Bombers
January 24, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-New reports obtained by U.S. officials and increased terrorist “chatter,” led to the elevation of the terrorist threat level in Britain this week from substantial to severe. The new reports warn of a group of non-Arab looking female suicide bombers trained by the Yemeni group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The western looking women may attempt to enter the United States and the United Kingdom, to attack airliners and other forms of transportation, as well as sports stadiums, ports and power stations. Security experts say it was inevitable that al-Qaida would train women with clean backgrounds, to wage terror on the Western world and bypass racial profiling by authorities.
A report in today’s UK Telegraph warns of female suicide bombers traveling on Western passports, quoting Richard Clarke, former chief White House counter terrorism adviser. The report also reveals a number of instances when persons on the United States’ “no fly list” were prevented from boarding planes in Britain and other countries bound for the U.S.
Clarke says that al-Qaida operatives have been training women for some time:
“There are others who are still out there who have been trained and who are clean skins – that means people who we do not have a record of, people who may not look like al-Qaeda terrorists, who may not be Arabs, and may not be men,” says Clarke.
During the past month, since the “no fly list” was broadened to include greater numbers, after the lessons learned from the Christmas-day bombing incident, two Arab travelers were prevented from boarding planes bound for the U.S. from Heathrow Airport. And two additional men, one in Nairobi, Kenya and the other in Saint Maarten, were stopped from boarding planes to the United States, because of their terrorist ties.
Two other incidents occurred in the United States in Minneapolis and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., when it was discovered the travelers were on the “no fly list” and were barred from boarding planes. The two people were questioned and released.
And a chilling revelation comes from the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which revealed this week that nearly 70 American citizens, some of which are ex-convicts, have disappeared in the countries of Yemen and Somalia. The American citizens are said to be involved with al-Qaida forces.
