State sponsored terrorism is OK, Freelance terrorism is not

Hammaad "UK's youngest terrorist" Munshi, was 16 and taking his GCSEs when he was arrested. Munshi, now 18, was convicted of making a record of information likely to be useful in terrorism following a three-month trial at Blackfriars Crown Court in London.

The teenager was remanded in custody until sentencing at the Old Bailey on 19 September when, Judge Timothy Pontius warned, it was "inevitable" that he would be jailed.

He had detailed instructions about making napalm, other high explosives, detonators and grenades, and "how to kill", the court heard.

Jurors were told that Munshi circulated technical documents detailing how to make napalm, detonators and how to produce different home-made explosives.aware of what their children are doing, as well as giving them a sound understanding of Islam."

Munshi was tried with two other members of the cell. Khan, 23, from Bradford, was convicted of possessing articles for a purpose connected with terrorism. Sultan Muhammad, 23, from Manningham, Bradford, was convicted of similar charges after a step-by-step guide to making a suicide vest was found in his possession, along with some of the most extreme terrorist videos ever recovered by British police. A fourth man, Ahmed Sulieman, 30, of south London, was cleared of all four charges against him.

Speaking after yesterday's guilty verdicts, Det Chf Supt John Parkinson, the head of the Leeds counter-terrorism unit, said: "Let there be no doubt, these are dangerous individuals. These men were not simply in possession of material which expressed extremist views. They were also in possession of material that was operationally useful to anyone wishing to carry out an act of violence or terrorism."

While they had not actively planned terrorist acts themselves, he added, they "sought to incite others for terrorist purposes, promoting al-Qa'ida ideology and training programmes".

Munshi will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 19 September. Khan and Muhammad will be sentenced today.

Well it's a good job they didn't go here and download CIA PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS IN GUERRILLA WARFARE -A tactical manual for the revolutionary. First published by the Central Intelligence Agency and distributed to the Contras in Central America.

Which contains a lot of useful tips for the wannabe warrior on the mean streets of Leeds. ....

3. Implicit and Explicit Terror
A guerrilla-armed force always involves implicit terror because the population, without saying it aloud, feels terror that the weapons may be used against them. However, if the terror does not become explicit, positive results can be expected.

5. Selective Use of Violence for Propagandistic Effects
It is possible to neutralize carefully selected and planned targets, such
as court judges, mesta judges, police and State Security officials, CDS chiefs, etc. For psychological purposes it is necessary to gather together the population affected, so that they will be present, take part in the act, and formulate accusations against the oppressor.

Six days before the 2nd Presidential debate between President Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale, on October 15th 1984 the Associated Press reported that the CIA had written a manual for the contras, entitled Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare (Operaciones sicolóogicas en guerra de guerillas).

The 90 page book of instructions focused mainly on how "Armed Propaganda Teams" could build political support within Nicaragua for the contra cause through deceit, intimidation, and violence.
The CIA manual discussed assassinations. The CIA claimed that the purpose of the manual was to "moderate" activities already being done by the Contras.

It would appear that this UK 'terrorist operation' is linked with a Canadian 'terrorist operation'...

Aabid Khan – also known as "Abu Omar" and "Ocean Blue" was arrested on 6th June 2006, flying into the UK from Pakistan. 4 days earlier on 2nd June 2006, Canadian police arrested 18 young 'suspects' in sweeps around Toronto related to an alleged conspiracy.

The Canadian 'terrorist plot' appears to have been a load of cooked up baloney...

The CIA manual is also available in pocket-sized printed form from every terrorists favourite terrorist eSupplier, the union-busting Amazon.

Interesting how Amazon can hold stock of, sell, distribute and profit from 'terrorist' publications yet certain people aren't even allowed possession of one copy.

Perhaps it might be opportune to mention that the Court of Appeal found possession of an article in itself was not an offence — what mattered was if was there an intention to use the material for terrorism.

How an appeal court precedent can be set and then dutifully and repeatedly ignored in similar cases remains another of those great unexplained 'judicial' mysteries.
