    Calculating the Risks in Pakistan A small group of U.S. military experts and intelligence officials convened in Washington for a classified war game last year, exploring strategies for securing Pakistan's nuclear arsenal if the country's political institutions and military safeguards began to fall apart. The secret exercise — conducted without official sponsorship from any government agency, apparently due to the sensitivity of its subject — was one of several such games the U.S. government has conducted in recent years examining various options and scenarios for Pakistan's nuclear weapons: How many troops might be required for a military intervention in...
  • Virginia man sentenced to 10 years in precedent-setting terror training-camp case

    ALEXANDRIA, Virginia: In a precedent-setting case, a man was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison for lying to authorities about his participation in a terror training camp in Pakistan after prosecutors successfully argued that his lies obstructed a wide-ranging terrorism investigation. Under normal sentencing guidelines, Sabri Benkahla, 32, would have received at most a three-year term for his convictions earlier this year on charges of lying to a grand jury, obstruction of justice and making a false statement. But for the first time, prosecutors were able to obtain a stiffer sentence by arguing that Benkahla's lies effectively promoted terrorism....

    NEW YORK -- Six men from New Jersey have been arrested in an alleged terror plot against soldiers at Fort Dix, according investigators. Investigators said the men planned to use automatic weapons to enter Fort Dix and kill as many soldiers as they could at the N.J. base. Fort Dix was just one of several military and security locations allegedly scouted by this group, authorities said. Investigators told Newschannel 4's Jonathan Dienst that these arrests are the result of a tip to the FBI and use of an informant to track the suspects. The terror suspects traveled over the last...

    A Virginia man who three years ago was acquitted of giving aid to the Taliban was convicted yesterday of lying to a federal grand jury about his training with a Pakistani militant group. A jury in U.S. District Court in Alexandria convicted Sabri Benkahla, 31, of Falls Church, of four felony counts, including perjury and obstruction of justice. He faces up to 25 years in prison when sentenced April 27. Prosecutors said Benkahla, a U.S. citizen, lied about training he received from Lashkar-e-Taiba, which the U.S. government has since designated a terrorist group.

    They're used to war around here. In 1485, Henry VII snatched the Crown just 20 miles away at the Battle of Bosworth. A century and a half later, Oliver Cromwell's troops destroyed the royalists four miles from here at Naseby. During World War II, this very field was an RAF bombing range. But even the hedgerows and all-seeing steeples of this ancient Northamptonshire hunting country cannot have witnessed anything quite as bizarre as this... --SNIP-- ...Invented in the U.S. in 1981, paintball arrived in Britain soon afterwards and has grown into an industry where anyone can play a grown-up game...

    Paintball imams spread militancy Abul Taher and Ali Hussain Activity days are 'front' to recruit young Muslims THE party of youths pulled on their blue overalls, snapped shut their visors and, taking aim with their paintball guns, prepared for four hours of licensed mayhem. But the men who pursued each other last Sunday morning through the wooded grounds of Delta Force’s paintballing park near Congleton, Cheshire, had little in common with the stag parties and company teams nearby. Instead of listening to corporate pep talks between sessions, the young Asian men were instructed by an imam dressed in fatigues on...

    Berkeley motorists and pedestrians -- and even a dog -- have been stung by paintballs at 10 different locations in recent weeks, likely by someone who is firing the projectiles from a car, police say. One victim was reportedly struck in the throat. "These incidents have caused welts, distress and damage by a variety of paintball colors," Sgt. Mary Kusmiss said. "The victims thus far have escaped serious injury, although the possibility is very real." The first attacks began on June 13 and the last one happened Sunday, police said. The incidents were typically in the afternoon or just before...

    SANTA FE— Never say that New Mexico isn't innovative: The state's Game & Fish Department officers in Raton are using paintball guns to chase the black bears out of town. "It's just another tool," said Lief Ahlm, northeast operations area chief for the department, explaining that his officers also use rubber buckshot. But Ahlm said the rubber buckshot in a shotgun is noisy and expensive— $1-$2 a shot. "I can buy 500 paintballs for about 10 bucks," said Ahlm, "and my guys can hit him maybe 8 or 10 times. As fast as you can pull the trigger, you can...

    Watching the ball drop, twirling a noisemaker, kissing your sweetheart, and making a resolution that rarely comes to pass -- everyone looks forward to the memory of a new year. But one group will be ringing in the New Year a little differently…through a children’s jihad retreat, with a guest speaker who exalts terrorists and another who is linked to al-Qaeda. The majority of Islamic organizations within the United States have, at one time or another, been cited for their connections to terrorism, whether by support of terror groups or through actual terrorist activity carried out by its members. Two...

    8 September 2005 PLAN FOR AIRGUN REGISTER A NEW register for those who buy and sell airguns is being considered by the Cabinet. After intense lobbying by the Executive, the Government at Westminster have agreed for new regulations on the weapons but are refusing to impose an outright ban. The moves follow a public outcry after the death of toddler Andrew Morton. He died in March after he was shot in the head by an air rifle pellet fired by junkie Mark Bonini in Easterhouse, Glasgow. The killer was jailed for life last month and ordered to spend at least...

    Paintball game featuring generic Arab raises concern Terrorism-themed game features Arab caricature Stroll a county fair this summer and you might find Freedom Bunker, where the staff wears military fatigues and American flags flutter. Players shoot paintballs at stationary targets, including a likeness of Osama bin Laden -- and at a man dressed in typical Middle East garb. Some players shout at him, "Die, terrorist!" Is this good, clean, patriotic fun or a crude caricature that encourages violence against Muslims? "We consider ourselves paintball enthusiasts and patriots," said Terry Kirby, 41, of Enola, one of the game's creators along with...

The event has drawn fire from anti-racists. It all started when members of The Democrats (Demokratene), along with some of their supporters, held a paintball competition at what they called an "informal" summer meeting. The politicians divided themselves into two groups, one of them dressed up like Muslim terrorists. "This was both fun and useful, and we hope to have more competitions...

    Ottawa – Canadian soldiers testing their fighting skills in a rare urban exercise were forced to rent commercial paintball weapons because they couldn't get proper army gear, a newly disclosed document shows. The unusual paintball battle was fought in the Halifax area last February, as the army practised helicopter evacuations in a hostile urban setting. Four Griffon helicopters ferried troops from the Halifax Commons across the harbour to an unused military housing complex in Dartmouth, N.S., where room-to-room searches were conducted. The dramatic training included some civilian participants, and drew curious citizens who were quick to snap souvenir pictures. An...

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A prominent Islamic scholar was convicted Tuesday of encouraging followers in the days after the Sept. 11 attacks to join the Taliban and fight U.S. troops. Jurors reached their verdict in their seventh day of deliberations in the trial of Ali al-Timimi. Al-Timini faces a mandatory maximum sentence of life in prison, federal prosecutors said. Prosecutors have said al-Timimi was a respected scholar who enjoyed "rock star" status among his followers and that he used that influence to guide them into holy war against the United States. Many of the followers often got together to play paintball...
