"The Britain-Bly connection"
The Oregonian ^ | July 22, 2005 | shocked editor

Posted on 07/22/2005 12:05:50 PM PDT by crazyhorse691

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "The hunt for a suspect with links to both Oregon and the London bombings shows why Portland is way off base

Maybe international police suspicions about Haroon Rashid Aswat will turn out to be unfounded. Maybe he had nothing to do with the July 7 London bomb attacks or the attempts to establish a terrorist training camp halfway around the world in a remote corner of Southern Oregon.

Either way, Portland's mayor and City Council majority should be paying close attention to the Aswat case. It magnifies everything that's wrong about the city's decision to pull Portland police off the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force."

"2,000 Islamic Radicals Rally in Pakistan"
Associated Press ^ | July 22, 2005 | MUNIR AHMAD

Posted on 07/22/2005 2:34:08 PM PDT by jeepgal

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- More than 2,000 supporters of a coalition of radical Muslim groups rallied Friday in the Pakistani capital to condemn a crackdown on Islamic militants that has netted more than 200 suspects.

Chanting "God is great," and "Down with America," the protesters - mostly Islamic students and members of a coalition known as Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum - marched on a main road in Islamabad, briefly clashed with police, and demanded the release of all detainees.

There were no reports of violence at rallies elsewhere in the country, where hundreds of Islamic radicals also protested the crackdown on mosques and offices of outlawed groups that followed the July 7 suicide bombings in London.

Authorities say their aim is to purge the country of extremism.

Earlier, Hafiz Hussain Ahmad, a senior leader of the coalition, said the government has arrested a large number of innocent people to appease Western countries. He said no terrorists were arrested in the raids on Islamic schools, or madrassas, and mosques, and demanded the release of all detainees.

On Thursday, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf appealed to the nation in a televised address to "rise up and wage jihad against extremist elements," which he vowed to crush. He also condemned those who carried out the London suicide attacks, which killed 56 people, including the four bombers.

A diplomatic official said Friday that Pakistani intelligence, acting on a tip from British authorities, have been looking for a man named Haroon Rashid Aswat, 31, who reportedly was in close contact with the alleged bombers.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn't authorized to talk to the media, said investigations were continuing and attempts to locate a record of his arrival in Pakistan were unsuccessful. A diplomat in Islamabad, who also declined to be identified, said Aswat was not in Pakistan.

Aswat reportedly was once an associate of Abu Hamza al-Masri, a radical imam who is awaiting trial in Britain on charges of incitement to murder. Al-Masri also is wanted in the United States on charges of trying to establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon."

Bomb suspect reportedly held in Africa ( key suspect in July 7 London bombings)
seattletimes.nwsource.com ^ | July 28 2005 | By Richard Serrano, Sebastian Rotella and Greg Miller

NEW YORK — Zambian authorities have detained a man sought for questioning in this month's deadly London bombing plot, as well as for his alleged role in setting up a terrorist training camp in Oregon, U.S. officials said yesterday.

Haroon Rashid Aswat, 30, a British citizen of Indian descent, piqued the interest of investigators when they discovered that about 20 calls had been placed from his cellphone to some of the men who set off bombs on London's

London Terror Suspect was holed up in Zimbabwe (is Mugabe providing safe haven?)
NewZimbabwe.com ^ | 07/28/2005 22:00:48 | Staff Reporter

Posted on 07/29/2005 7:11:43 AM PDT by dead

ONE of the suspected masterminds of the July 7 London terror bombings has been holed up in Zimbabwe, reports said last night.


The Associated Press reported Thursday night that Haroon Rashid Aswat, 31, had been arrested by Zambian authorities after entering the country from Zimbabwe.


British investigators pursuing the terrorists whose carefully planned attacks on London's transport network killed 56 people say Aswat had telephone contact with some of the July 7 bombers.


It was not immediately clear how long Aswat had been living in Zimbabwe, or where he was living, although a Zambian official who spoke on condition of anonymity to the AP confirmed the arrest.


The British Foreign Office could only say they were were seeking access to a Briton reported to be in custory in Zambia, but would not identify him or say if he was connected to the terror bombings.


A British resident with Indian descent, Aswat reportedly interested investigators when they discovered that about 20 calls had been placed from his cellphone to some of the four suspected bombers.


Zimbabwean authorities have not commented on the arrest.

SNIPPET: “8. Abu Hamza’s extradition was requested by the United States on 21 May 2004, now over eight years ago. The case against him is that he conspired to take hostages in the Yemen, set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon and to give other support to terrorists. He was arrested in London on 5 August 2004. Abu Hamza served seven years imprisonment after being convicted of offences in the United Kingdom. Thereafter extradition proceedings were resumed with the Senior District Judge ruling on 15 November 2007 that his extradition could take place. The Secretary of State ordered his extradition on 7 February 2008. The High Court rejected Abu Hamza’s appeal on 20 June 2008, and also refused leave to appeal to the House of Lords on 23 July 2008.”

“Abu Hamza due in US court following extradition”

SNIPPET: “Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza is due to appear in court in New York to face terrorism charges.

He is one of five men who left the UK on two flights, hours after the High Court rejected their final appeals.

It has been confirmed Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan have landed in the US. They will appear before a judge in Connecticut in connection with the alleged running of a pro-jihad website.

The home secretary said the extradition process had been too “lengthy”.

On Friday, UK judges ruled the five men - Abu Hamza, Mr Ahmad, Mr Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz - did not show “new and compelling” reasons to stay in the UK.”

“U.S. Man Questioned About London Suspect [Ujaama, Seattle]”

ABC News.com ^ | July 22, 2005 | By MARK SHERMAN, The Associated Press
Posted on July 22, 2005 7:18:46 PM PDT by aculeus

SNIPPET: “Authorities Questioning Seattle Man About Individual Sought in Connection With London Bombings

An American once accused of trying to set up a terror training camp in Oregon is being questioned about a man sought in the London bombings, U.S. officials said Friday.

James Ujaama, a Muslim convert from Seattle, was charged in 2002 with trying to set up a terrorist training camp for Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges in exchange for cooperating with terrorism investigations until 2013.

Three federal law enforcement officials said Ujaama is being questioned about Haroon Rashid Aswat, who also was implicated in the 1999 plan to establish a training camp in Bly, Ore. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation.

British authorities are looking into whether Aswat had been in close contact with the suicide bombers just before the July 7 attacks. They have asked Pakistan to search for Aswat.”

“Bin Laden’s own doctor once treated Ujaama”

By Mike Carter, Feb 12, 2004
Seattle Times staff reporter

SNIPPET: “During one of James Ujaama’s trips to aid the Taliban government in Afghanistan in late 2000, the former Seattle native fell ill and was treated by Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of the most-wanted terrorists in the world and Osama bin Laden’s adviser, confidant and personal physician.

“It gives you an idea of the circles in which Ujaama found himself,” noted one federal law-enforcement source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “It would be like you or me getting a bellyache and having the U.S. surgeon general show up at the door.””

Three Alleged International Terrorists Extradited from Great Britain

“Abu Hamza” to Face Terrorism Charges for 1998 Kidnapping in Yemen, Supporting the Establishment of a Terrorist Training Camp in the United States, and Facilitating Violent Jihad in Afghanistan

U.S. Attorney’s Office
October 06, 2012

Southern District of New York

Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York; Mary Galligan, the Acting Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and Raymond W. Kelly, the Police Commissioner of the City of New York (NYPD), today announced the extradition of three defendants charged with terrorism offenses in two separate cases. Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, a/k/a “Abu Hamza,” a/k/a “Abu Hamza al Masri,” (“Abu Hamza”), 54, a naturalized citizen of the United Kingdom, is charged in connection with a hostage-taking in Yemen in 1998 that resulted in four deaths; a conspiracy to establish a terrorist training camp in Bly, Oregon, in 1999; and supporting violent jihad in Afghanistan in 2000 and 2001.

Separately, Adel Abdel Bary, 52, a citizen of Egypt, and Khaled al Fawwaz, 50, a citizen of Saudi Arabia, are charged with conspiring with members of al Qaeda to kill United States nationals and to attack U.S. interests abroad. Bary is also charged with murder, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, and other offenses in connection with the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which caused the deaths of 224 individuals and injured thousands more.

Abu Hamza, Fawwaz, and Bary were extradited from the U.K. and arrived in the Southern District of New York last night. Abu Hamza will be presented today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas. He will be arraigned Tuesday morning, October 9, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. before U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest, at which time Judge Forrest will also hold an initial pre-trial conference. Fawwaz and Bary will be presented and arraigned today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas. Their case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, and an initial pre-trial conference before Judge Kaplan is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said, “As is charged, these are men who were at the nerve centers of al Qaeda’s acts of terror, and they caused blood to be shed, lives to be lost, and families to be shattered. After years of protracted legal battles, the extradition of these three alleged terrorists to the U.S. is a watershed moment in our nation’s efforts to eradicate terrorism, and it makes good on a promise to the American people to use every available diplomatic, legal, and administrative tool to pursue and prosecute charged terrorists no matter how long it takes. Now, Abu Hamza, Adel Abdel Bary, and Khaled al Fawwaz will finally face justice.”

FBI Acting Assistant Director in Charge Mary Galligan said, “The extraditions of Abu Hamza, Bary, and Fawwaz are a major milestone in our effort to see these alleged high-level terrorists face American justice. The indictments allege the direct participation of these defendants in planning and carrying out some of the most odious acts of al Qaeda terrorism. When an indictment alleges the murderous intent of international terrorists, the government will not waver in its determination to achieve justice, no matter how long it takes.”

NYPD Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said, “The individuals accused of terrorism-related charges in this case were brought to justice as a result of great work by NYPD officers and FBI agents assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force, in partnership with the outstanding team of prosecutors assembled by U.S. Attorney Bharara.”

Charges Against Abu Hamza
As alleged in the indictment against Abu Hamza:

December 1998 Hostage-Taking in Yemen

On December 28, 1998, in Yemen, hostage-takers stormed a caravan of sport utility vehicles carrying 16 tourists, including two United States citizens, and took the tourists hostage by force. Prior to the hostage-taking, Abu Hamza provided a co-conspirator in the hostage-taking (“CC-1”) with a satellite telephone. Abu Hamza subsequently spoke with CC-1 on that satellite telephone, agreed to act as an intermediary on behalf of the hostage-takers, and advised CC-1 with respect to the hostage-taking. On December 29, 1998, the Yemeni military launched a rescue operation. The hostage-takers fought the Yemeni military, using the hostages as human shields. During the rescue operation, four of the hostages were killed and several others were wounded.

Efforts to Create a Terrorist Training Camp in Bly, Oregon

In late 1999, Abu Hamza and several co-conspirators, including Oussama Abdullah Kassir, Haroon Rashid Aswat, and others, attempted to create a terrorist training camp to support al Qaeda on property located in Bly, Oregon. The primary purpose of the Bly, Oregon, camp was to provide various types of terrorist training, including weapons training. In late November 1999, at Abu Hamza’s direction, Kassir, and Aswat traveled from London, England, to Bly to assist in setting up the camp.

On May 12, 2009, after a four-week jury trial in this District, Kassir was convicted of various criminal offenses, including conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and to al Qaeda and conspiracy to kill persons overseas, as a result of Kassir’s participation in the efforts to establish the Bly terrorist training camp. On September 15, 2009, United States District Judge John F. Keenan sentenced Kassir to multiple terms of life in prison. The conviction was subsequently affirmed by the Court of Appeals.

Aswat was arrested in Zambia in July 2005 and then deported to England, where he was arrested at the request of the United States, pursuant to a warrant issued in this district. The extradition proceedings against Aswat are currently pending in the European Court of Human Rights.

Facilitating Violent Jihad in Afghanistan

In November 2000, Abu Hamza requested that a co-conspirator (“CC-2”) escort another co-conspirator in London (“CC-3”) to a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan. Abu Hamza introduced CC-2 to another co-conspirator (“CC-4”) in order to facilitate safe passage and transportation to Afghanistan, including via safehouses and other lodging in Pakistan. Thereafter, CC-2 and CC-3 traveled from London to Pakistan. CC-2 and CC-3 then separately entered Afghanistan. In March or April 2001, Abu Hamza conveyed instructions for CC-3 to contact a commander of the terrorist training camp in Afghanistan, who was expecting CC-3. Additionally, from the spring of 2000 through late 2001, Abu Hamza provided goods and services to the Taliban by, among other things, urging his followers to donate money, goods, and services to Taliban-sponsored programs in Afghanistan.

The indictment charges Abu Hamza with 11 offenses that carry the following potential penalties:

Charges Against Fawwaz and Bary

As alleged in the indictment against Fawwaz and Bary:

In 1994, Fawwaz established a media information office in London, England, to publicize the statements of Usama bin Laden and to provide a cover for activity in support of al Qaeda’s “military” activities, including the recruitment of military trainees, the disbursement of funds, and the procurement of necessary equipment and services. The London office served as a conduit for messages, including reports relating to military and security matters from various al Qaeda cells, to al Qaeda’s headquarters. In August or September 1996, Fawwaz forwarded a copy of Bin Laden’s “Declaration of Jihad Against Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Mosques; Expel the Heretics from the Arabian Peninsula” to another person in England for further dissemination to the media for publication. Thereafter, Fawwaz vouched for the Declaration’s authenticity. From 1995 through September 1998, Fawwaz provided bin Laden and other al Qaeda members with various means of communications including a satellite phone in order to facilitate communications among al Qaeda members and associates.

In September 1997, Fawwaz leased an office located in London, England (the “Beethoven Office”). That lease was signed by both Fawwaz and Bary. Thereafter, in February 1998, Bary continued the lease of the Beethoven Office until at least September 1998. Bary led the London cell of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad organization and provided logistical assistance to the organization, including in connection with obtaining fake travel documents and delivering messages. The Beethoven Office is where Bary received, among other things, a statement issued on August 4, 1998—three days prior to the bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania—by Egyptian Islamic Jihad, threatening to retaliate against the United States. That statement was later found in the Beethoven Office.

By February 1998, the Egyptian Islamic Jihad organization, led by Ayman Al Zawahiri, had effectively merged with al Qaeda. In February 1998, bin Laden and Zawahiri endorsed a fatwah under the banner of the “International Islamic Front for Jihad on the Jews and Crusaders.” This fatwah stated that Muslims should kill Americans—including civilians—anywhere in the world where that they could be found.

In the hours immediately preceding the Embassy bombings on August 7, 1998, claims of responsibility for the bombings were sent to the Beethoven Office. After the bombings, those claims of responsibility were also sent to media organizations in France, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. The claims stated that the Nairobi, Kenya bombing was carried out by a Saudi national and that the Dar es Salaam, Tanzania bombing was carried out by an Egyptian national.

On May 29, 2001, after a five-month jury trial in this District, Wadih El Hage, Mohammed Sadeek Odeh, Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-‘Owhali, and Khalfan Khamis Mohamed, co-conspirators of Fawwaz and Bary, were convicted of various offenses, including conspiring to kill U.S. nationals, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, murder and attempted murder, in connection with their roles in the al Qaeda conspiracies that culminated in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Based on those convictions, United States District Judge Leonard B. Sand sentenced all four defendants to life in prison. The convictions were affirmed by the Court of Appeals. On November 17, 2010, after a five-week jury trial in this District, co-conspirator Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was convicted of conspiring to destroy buildings and property of the United States. On January 25, 2011, United States District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan sentenced Ghailani to life in prison. Ghailani’s appeal of his conviction and sentence is pending.

The indictment charges Fawwaz with four offenses, which carry the following potential penalties:

The charges, arrests, and extraditions of these three defendants were the result of the close cooperative efforts of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the FBI, the NYPD, the United States Marshals Service, New Scotland Yard. Mr. Bharara also thanked the Home Office of the United Kingdom, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of International Affairs, the National Security Division, and the United States Department of State for their ongoing assistance.

These two cases are being handled by the Office’s Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. Assistant U.S. Attorneys John P. Cronan and Edward Y. Kim are in charge of the prosecution of ABU Hamza, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean S. Buckley is in charge of the prosecution of Fawwaz and Bary.

The charges contained in the indictments are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

“Shabaab threatens Britain over extradition of Abu Hamza al Masri”
By BILL ROGGIO AND LISA LUNDQUIST
October 23, 2012

SNIPPET: “Yesterday the Somali terror group Shabaab threatened to attack Britain for extraditing radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al Masri, who arrived in the US on Oct. 5 after being held for nine years in a British prison. The al Qaeda affiliate also pledged “to go to every possible length” to free the Blind Sheikh, another convicted terrorist, who is serving a life sentence in the US for murdering US citizens.

Shabaab threatened Britain and pledged to work to free the Blind Sheikh, in a series of 11 tweets on its Twitter account, HSM Press Office (@HSMPress, or Harakat al Shabaab al Mujahideen Press Office).”

“Haroon Aswat US extradition opposed by court”

SNIPPET: “The European Court of Human Rights has ruled a terrorism suspect should not be extradited from the UK to the US due to his mental health problems.

Haroon Aswat allegedly tried to establish a training camp in Oregon with the radical cleric Abu Hamza, who was extradited to the US last year.

But Mr Aswat said conditions in a ‘supermax’ jail could exacerbate his paranoid schizophrenia.”

SNIPPET: “Mr Aswat has been detained at Broadmoor high security psychiatric hospital since 2008, after being transferred from prison.

He was arrested in the UK in 2005 following a request for his arrest and extradition from US authorities, after allegedly plotting to set up a terror training camp in the US state of Oregon with Abu Hamza.

In October 2012, Abu Hamza, Babar Ahmad, Syed Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz were extradited to the US.”
