    My biggest complaint on this issue, is that non-Muslims of West has been far too soft on those who want to impose Sharia on us whether we like or not. (That is not a call to violence). But once again we are getting some good news! In the last article here at Logan’s Warning we saw French youth’s rising up against Islam. Tonight the good news is here at home. Where a halal plant in Illinois was raided. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a country wide crackdown on the enemy within. 100 Armed Feds Raid Muslim Meatpacking House...

    CHICAGO (AP) -- A federal jury convicted a Chicago businessman on Thursday of helping plot an attack against a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad but cleared him of the most serious charge accusing him of cooperating in the deadly 2008 rampage in Mumbai. The jury reached its split verdict after two days of deliberations, finding Tahawwur Rana guilty of providing material support to terrorism in Denmark and to the Pakistani militant group that had claimed responsibility for the three-day siege in India's largest city that left more than 160 people dead, including six Americans.

    GWOT: The arrest of a Danish cartoon terror plotter for an even more lethal role in 2008's Mumbai terror attack reminds us the war on terror is global. So why is this being treated as a mere law-enforcement matter? David Copeland Headley, 49, a Pakistani-American resident of the north side of Chicago, was arrested in October for plotting the terror-killings of the editors of Jyllands-Posten, a Copenhagen-based newspaper that ran unflattering cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in 2006. A month later, the public learned it wasn't his first time. Headley, 49, a failed businessman and convicted drug dealer who'd changed...

    12 November 2009 RANA AND HEADLEY: SMART, BUT NOT WISE The case of Rana and Headley, currently in Federal custody in Chicago, provides a number of examples of good tradecraft. I'm not sure it's so much terrorist tradecraft as it is spycraft in the service of terrorism, but in any event, these two gentlemen and their colleagues get an "A" for effort. That they ultimately failed has to do with their lack of appreciation for the capabilities of their adversaries. Their efforts did little to keep them safe, and now those efforts will be used as evidence of their guilt....
