American killed in Saudi explosion  10/7/01 BBC: "The attack on the US base five years ago drove the American forces to relocate to the desert. Nowadays their bases may be out of range of attack, but in the last 12 months, there have been a series of mysterious bombings in Saudi Arabia, all targeting Westerners."

US, Egypt raids caught militants  10/7/01 Boston Globe: "Because those raids were so bold - and have often led to questionable trials and the execution of at least two suspects - some human rights activists have criticized the campaigns for disregarding civil liberties. In addition, some Islamic insiders believe the success of the raids has inspired the enmity that drove bin Laden and his network against the United States. 'They [the Americans] delivered them to death,'' said Yasser al-Sirri, director of a human rights group with wide-ranging contacts in the Muslim world."

Tactical Nuclear Weapons Deployed  10/7/01 Debka, Israel: scroll to bottom of their page - "Presidents George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin, in a single 70-minuted conversation on September 23, eleven days after the terrorist assaults in New York and Washington, agreed on the deployment of tactical weapons. This is an epic shift in the global balance of strength." Putin gave the nod for US forces poised in Central Asia to jump into Afghanistan to be armed with tactical nuclear weapons, such as small neutron bombs, which emit strong radiation, nuclear mines, shells, and other nuclear ammunition suited to commando warfare in mountainous terrain.

Terrorist Theory Preferred  10/7/01 Debka, Israel: scroll to bottom of their page - "Russian and Israeli investigators alike have ruled the missile option out in favor of the terrorist theory. They are coming to believe that an explosive charge attached to a handheld radio was planted in the ceiling of the passengers cabin before it left Nosibirsk for Tel Aviv. Palestinian terrorists have made frequent use of cell phones in the same way for detonating booby-trapped cars. The bomb, it is believed, was most likely planted on Wednesday October 3, by a terrorist attached to a Siberian airport technical crew. One such “electrician” reportedly pulled out a number of ceiling tiles and spent some time checking the wiring, before the Tu-154 took off for Tel Aviv. He was not seen again."

Bin Laden makes defiant TV appearance  10/7/01 The Guardian, UK: "America was hit by God in one of its softest spots. America is full of fear from its north to its south, from its west to its east. Thank God for that." America's most wanted terrorist warned that Americans "will never feel safe until we and Palestinians feel safe"

The American Phenomenon and The Bin Laden Phenomenon  10/7/01 The Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia: "It is ironic that the people in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia despise their regime's main ally, the US, even more than the hate towards the US felt by the Palestinians. It may be a surprise to the readers to know that the first reaction to the events of Tuesday was a frantic exchange of congratulatory text messages through mobile phones. People then went on killing sheep and inviting friends for big feasts. America does not know of this seething hatred towards her in the region in general and in the Kingdom in particular. Those who put this in the context of the loathing felt towards superpowers are very much mistaken. Muslims look upon the US from various angles and each glance is enough to precipitate strategic hatred."

The House of Saud In the eye of the storm  10/7/01 The Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia: "The regime purposefully hid the truth about the opposition, peaceful or otherwise, from the Americans for fear that it might lead their masters to withdraw confidence in them and seek other clients. The rulers exploited the deficient American methods of information gathering and their reliance on technology. They succeeded in cheating their American masters about the identity of those responsible for Al-Khubar. They went on hiding the truth even after the events of Nairobi and Dar es Salaam while bin Laden’s extended organisation was in Saudi Arabia and not in Afghanistan. Even today, the Americans are unaware of the fact that the majority of bin Laden followers and sympathisers are in the Kingdom."

China Moves Forces into Afghanistan  10/6/01 Debka, Israel: scroll to bottom of their page - "Before even the launching of the major US military offensive in Afghanistan, long Chinese convoys were carrying armed Chinese Muslim servicemen through northwest China into Afghanistan, according to DEBKAfile’s intelligence experts. They were sent in to fight alongside the ruling Taliban and Osama Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda. Their number is estimated roughly between 5000 and 15,000. Our sources report another three convoys are behind the first 3000, who crossed the frontier Friday, October 5. They are entering Afghanistan along the ancient Krakoram Road to the Afghan-Pakistani border, through the Kulik Pass of Little Pamir, which is situated in one of the highest and most remote regions of the world. Beijing is deploying this force in two places: A. Whakyir, the Kirgyz tribal encampment near the Little Pamir-Tadjik frontier, opposite the swelling concentration of US and Russian Special Forces and air strength The Chinese have brought with them Kirgyz fundamentalist militants from the Ferghana Valley of Central Asia, as interpreters. From Whakyir, the Chinese generals believe, with Bin Laden’s and the Taliban’s tacticians, they will be able to block off the movement of the US-led force from its rallying point in Dzhartygumbez, Tadjikistan, no more than 35 miles from Little Pamir, into the mountains of Hindu Kush. B. Jalalabad in north Afghanistan, at the foot of the Hindu Kush range."

Fears of Terrorist Backlash  10/6/01 Debka, Israel: scroll to bottom of their page - "between 30 and 50 terror activists are organized in teams in the United States. They are all armed with detailed missions for implementation in major US cities on both coasts as soon as the US launches its offensive in Afghanistan. Logistical and command posts to run this second wave have been set up on three continents: Canada, in Toronto and Vancouver in Canada; Europe, in Hamburg, Vienna and the north Albanian Adriatic port of Shengjin, an important Albanian mafia center; and the Persian Gulf, in Dubai. These centers are operated by an estimated 900-1000 Al Qaeda activists. At their disposal in the US are a further 70-90 well-trained Islamic militants waiting for missions and orders to strike. An additional 150 terrorists are scattered round Canada, Europe, the Persian Gulf and the Far East, as a reserve force. They live quietly under false identities, with wives and families, usually locals who do not suspect that the head of he family is a terrorist and may disappear forever, if called to action. "The most dangerous terrorists- in-waiting, who live under the deepest cover, are the 100 or so Islamic militants, who are programmed to carry out missions as lone wolves – not all of them inside America. These loners are the ones most likely to carry out chemical or biological strikes, the fear of which is now gripping America."
