‘Third Man’ in Garland Terror Attack Linked to Islamic State, Targeted Super Bowl, Malls and Military


by MERRILL HOPE
27 Dec 2015

The federal government filed a second superseding indictment against Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, a.k.a. Decarus Thomas, the Arizona “third man” connected with May’s foiled Garland, Texas, terrorist attack, alleging a direct link between Kareem and the Islamic State.

The indictment handed down by a grand jury (attached below) on December 22 provides the clearest possible link yet between Kareem, 44, and the Islamic State terrorist organization, which claimed credit for the May 3 Garland shooting. Although the indictment does not allege that Kareem communicated directly with the group, it charges conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization because of a list of U.S. military members Kareem allegedly accessed from the Islamic State.

In June, 2014, Kareem, Elton Francis Simpson, 34, and Nadir Hamid Soofi, 30, began a conspiracy to support the Islamic State the indictment states. They pledged themselves and their services to attacking targets in the United States. The targets included military bases, military service members, shopping malls, Super Bowl XLIX and the Garland-held Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest.

Kareem began hosting meetings at his Phoenix home with Simpson and Soofi in February 2015 to discuss “attacking” the Muhammad Art Exhibit once its organizers announced the May event date. According to the indictment, on the event day, Simpson and Soofi drove from their home in Phoenix to Garland where they got out of their car and opened fire with assault weapons during the Muhammad Art Exhibit held at the Curtis Culwell Center. A Garland police officer killed the two assailants. A school security guard was wounded during the attack.

When authorities later searched Simpson and Soofi’s apartment, they found a handwritten note with U.S. military member’s names, addresses and personal information. That information came from an Islamic State list, according to the indictment, which noted that “on or about March 20, 2015, Simpson accessed materials published by the Islamic State that contained residential information for U.S. military service members.” The Islamic State called for supporters to attack such military service members.

Count 5 of the indictment charges that Kareem, Simpson and Soofi “knowingly and intentionally conspired to provide ‘material support or resources’…, including services and personnel, to a foreign terrorist organization, that is, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which at all relevant times was designated by the Secretary of State as a foreign terrorist organization…”

The indictment also shows Kareem’s conviction to the Islamic State cause and the lengths he went to radicalize Soofi and Simpson into jihadists, citing that Kareem “exhorted and encouraged Simpson and Soofi to engage in violent activity to support [lslamic State] and impose retribution for United States military actions in the Middle East.”

It stated that Kareem arranged and provided transportation for Simpon and Soofi’s shooting trips in “remote desert areas” near Phoenix, also giving “guidance” to the Garland shooters on how to operate and fire assault rifles. Between February 2014 and May 1, 2015, Kareem allegedly nurtured Simpson and Soofi in watching videos that contained inspirational Islamic songs or “nasheeds” that “depicted people wearing black masks and head scarves riding in trucks with black flags mounted on them and shooting rifles.” Also, between June 2014 through March 2015, the three men researched travel to the Middle East for the purpose to support and even to fight alongside the Islamic State. By October 2014, Simpson was sharing Islamic State torture videos on Twitter.

The feds originally indicted Kareem in June on conspiracy charges, transporting weapons across state lines, and giving false statements to investigators, which Breitbart Texas reported, also noting that Kareem, a convert to Islam, “attended the same north Phoenix mosque as Soofi and Simpson, though mosque president Usama Shami said Kareem infrequently attended. In June, the prosecutor said Kareem became interested in conducting jihad attacks on American soil after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, according to Breitbart News.

Cosme Lopez, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Phoenix, which is prosecuting Kareem, declined to say whether authorities believe the Garland attack was carried out on behalf of the Islamic State, the Los Angeles Times reported.

New York Man Arrested for Allegedly Plotting New Year’s Eve Islamic State Attack

by JORDAN SCHACHTEL
31 Dec 2015
Washington, DC

Federal officials have arrested a Rochester, New York man for allegedly plotting a New Year’s machete attack on behalf of the Islamic State terror group.

Emanuel L. Lutchman, 25, is being charged with attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State, which is designated by the United States as a terrorist organization. This charge carries a potential penalty of 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine, the FBI said.


“According to the complaint, as part of Emanuel Lutchman’s attempt to provide material support to ISIL, he planned to kill innocent civilians on New Year’s Eve in the name of the terrorist organization,” Assistant Attorney General Carlin said in the press release. “Thankfully, law enforcement was able to intervene and thwart Lutchman’s deadly plans.”

“The FBI thwarted Emanuel Lutchman’s intent to kill civilians on New Year’s Eve,” added FBI Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Cohen. “The FBI remains concerned about people overseas who use the Internet to inspire people in the United States to commit acts of violence where they live.”

The complaint alleges that Lutchman had received a directive from an overseas IS member. He was preparing to target a Rochester restaurant on New Year’s Eve, according to authorities.


He had in the past expressed his desire to join Islamic State on the battlefield in Syria, the complaint states, after an overseas IS member described his time in the Middle East as a “dream come true.”

The overseas individual told Lutchman that should he fail to make his way to IS-held territory, he must work “behind enemy lines” in America to kill countless “kuffar,” or non-Muslims. “For now do wat u can over there,” the overseas IS member told Lutchman, according to the criminal complaint.

According to the FBI complaint, Lutchman had other Muslim “brothers” in the area devoted to IS who also wanted to make the journey to Syria.

And on December 27, Lutchman would record an audio message declaring his pledge to the Islamic State, the FBI testimony reads. A couple of days later, he made a video pledging support for IS and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“I’m ready to lose my family,” the alleged terrorist said as he was readying his jihadi operations for New Year’s eve. “

On Wednesday, just one day before his planned actions, the Rochester Joint Terrorism-Task Force arrested Lutchman as he was in a vehicle with an FBI confidential informant, the criminal complaint said.


They should allow all those wanting to go to Syria to fight for ISIS go...and revoke their US citizenship the moment that they leave.
They should have a one way ticket....to Syria...or hell, whichever comes first.

Mom hoped son would work for P&G; he chose ISIL instead

USA TODAY NETWORK Keith BieryGolick, The Cincinnati Enquirer 3:28 p.m. EST November 11, 2016

Image

CINCINNATI --- His parents wanted him to be a chemist, but all Munir Abdulkader could think about were knives and pipe bombs.

Abdulkader, praised for his intelligence in court documents, received a scholarship after graduating from Lakota East High School to attend Xavier University. He majored in chemistry. His mother hoped he might work for Procter & Gamble, but instead he plead guilty earlier this year to a gruesome plan officials say was approved by a religious leader for the terror group Islamic State, or ISIL.

His mother told Vocativ reporters in 2014 Abdulkader didn't have a phone and never did anything but study.

Not exactly.

"I really don't like living here," Abdulkader told a confidential government informant in 2015, according to court documents.

Government officials say the West Chester Township resident tweeted images of beheadings and support for the Islamic State terror group almost daily. Abdulkader dreamed of traveling to Syria and attaining martyrdom.

"I love my parents and family," he once wrote on Twitter, according to court documents. "I don't want to pay them with money after college, rather through the intercession of a (martyr) on that day."

Eventually, U.S. officials say, a prominent overseas member of ISIL directed and helped him plot to kill a government employee, film it and attack a police station in the Cincinnati area -- trying to kill as many cops as possible. Officials have refused to say which police station was targeted.

Abudlkader pleaded guilty earlier this year to three charges related to the plot. Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 25 years in prison, including a lifetime of supervised release.

The 22-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced next week. Ahead of his sentencing, new court documents filed Thursday in federal court reveal more about Abdulkader and his plan than ever before.

Here's what we learned:

Abdulkader hid terror plans from his parents:

FBI agents interviewed Abdulkader's older brother about Abdulkader's pro-ISIL statements on Twitter in 2014. A few months later, reporters with Vocativ, a media company that uses data-mining technology to access information on the Internet most can't, interviewed Abdulkader's mom.

Although the family is originally from Eritrea in eastern Africa, she said Abdulkader was born in the United States and has never left the country. Abdulkader and his family moved from New York City to West Chester in 2009.

Abdulkader immediately deleted his Facebook and Twitter accounts after his mom did the interview. But he created a new Twitter account condemning journalists, according to court documents, and continued to post about his support of ISIL.

In November of 2014, he posted about feeling sick to his stomach for not being in Syria. He also said he teared up after watching an ISIL video.

To conceal his plans to travel to Syria, Abdulkader lied on his passport application and had it mailed to a friend's house. He also tweeted misleading statements online to disguise his real reason for traveling, U.S. officials said.

"I get to see my grandparents soon," he tweeted on Jan. 14, 2015. "Been 16+ years. They're weak and dying."

He wanted to kill a soldier who had been in Iraq or Afghanistan:

The same day Abdulkader tweeted about visiting his grandparents, the FBI arrested Christopher Cornell. Cornell, of Green Township, planned to bomb the U.S. Capitol and shoot President Barack Obama in the head.

"I'm with the Islamic State," Cornell told WXIX-TV in an interview from jail.

Abdulkader had received a voice mail from a member of ISIL with instructions on how to travel and successfully cross the border into the war zone, according to court documents. But Cornell's arrest and other highly-publicized incidents forced Abdulkader to rethink his plan.

Junaid Hussain, a well-known ISIL operative heavily involved in the group's recruitment, also told him travel was too risky. Hussain was killed in an air strike about three months after Abdulkader was arrested. Before his death, he was said to be a central figure for the terror group.

Turning his attention to an attack in the United States, Abdulkader talked about the FBI headquarters. He then switched his target a military base, before concerns about tightened security there made him rethink again.

The new plan: Raid a government employee's home, behead him and use pipe bombs to attack a police station. Fight until he was killed.

Hussain, according to court documents, even suggested Abdulkader wear the government employee's uniform to the police station.

When asked about beheading the employee, Abdulkader told a confidential government source it was the "only way to send a loud message."

"Abdulkader was adamant that he wanted Hussain to provide information about an actual soldier who had fought in Iraq or Afghanistan," according to court documents.

It was not clear why, although Abdulkader had posted online messages about two of his cousins who died fighting in Syria.

Abdulkader talked to Hussain about 2015 attacks in Garland, Texas, where two gunmen attacked a Mohammed cartoon drawing event. One guard was wounded before the two attackers were killed.

Abdulkader didn't believe the gunmen trained enough, so he began making plans to buy a gun and practice shooting it.

"I'm actually very excited for the confrontation," he told Hussain on May 16, 2015, according to court documents.

Abudalkder then bought an AK-47 rifle, through an arrangement set up by the confidential source, in a Mason parking lot and was arrested by the FBI.

An expert believes Abdulkader was unfairly set up:

Marc Sageman is a former CIA operations officer. He works as a counterterrorism consultant and forensic psychiatrist. He has written extensively Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

Sageman argues in a court filing the FBI's use of a confidential source gave Abdulkader the means to carry out an attack he couldn't have done without the government's involvement. He also said Abdulkader isn't likely to return to terroristic activity when released from jail.

"By setting (the defendant) up via the (confidential human source) and arresting him," said Sageman. "The FBI did not make the United States safer from terrorism."

Sageman said Abdulkader was curious and retweeted videos. He said he wanted to immigrate to Syria to live in a "genuine land of Islam."

The prosecuting attorneys argued Abdulkader was in contact with Hussain long before he was contacted by their confidential informant. Prosecutors attacked Sageman in their response, saying theories in his recent book, "Misunderstanding Terrorism,"forced him to view the Abdulkader case in a certain way.

"Sageman's confounding conclusion is a product of his deep-seed biases reflected in his new book," United State Attorney Benjamin Glassman wrote in a memorandum. "And so, Sageman rewrote the facts to reach a tortured conclusion."

Abdulkader is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 18.

The Ohio State incident has been mentioned elsewhere but I am adding it to this thread as it is relevant to the thread title:

Ohio State University attacker was inspired by ISIS

POSTED AT 9:01 PM ON NOVEMBER 29, 2016 BY JOHN SEXTON

The 18-year-old who rammed his car into pedestrians and then used a butcher knife to slash at people on the campus of Ohio State University was inspired by ISIS according to investigators who spoke to Fox News:

Investigators have found evidence that the man who plowed a car into a crowd at Ohio State University Monday before stabbing several pedestrians with a butcher knife was inspired by ISIS propaganda, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

The sources did not specify what evidence was found, but investigators are inclined to believe that the attacker, 18-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan, was “self-radicalized.”


The FBI is now examining Artan’s phone and computer to confirm he was marinating in ISIS propaganda. As for ISIS, they have already claimed Artan as a “soldier of the Islamic State”:

On Tuesday, ISIS’s media arm claimed the Ohio State University attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State.” According to MEMRI, the terror organization’s A’maq News Agency said Artan “carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the countries [participating] in the international coalition.”

“Brother Abdul Razak Ali Artan, God accept him, implementer of the Ohio attack, a student in his third year in university,” the post read.


One interesting point which neither Fox News nor the AP has clarified yet is exactly when this self-radicalization happened. If you’ve been following this story at all you probably already know that Artan was featured in the school newspaper saying, “It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable.” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer described the school paper piece, which presents Artan as a harmless Muslim worried about his own safety:



That was published in August of this year. Was Artan truly a moderate at the time? If so he seems to have radicalized to the point of trying to imitate the Nice, France terror attack in just a matter of months. The other possibility is that Artan already had some extremist views and was merely presenting himself as a harmless moderate while he decided how to carry out an attack.

Finally, there was an interview today with OSU professor William Clark who was wounded in the attack. He describes how he happened to be outside with as many as 50 other people because of an alarm that had sent everyone in his building onto the sidewalk. Fire fighters went into the building to check out a possible gas leak. The alarm and the leak are believed to be a coincidence that had no connection to the attack.

As the leak situation seemed to be ending, Artan drove onto the sidewalk and slammed his car into a concrete planter/barrier. In the process he clipped the professor in the leg, sending him flying into the air. Fortunately for Professor Clark, Artan got out on the other side of the vehicle and did not see Clark lying on the ground as he began his knife attack.

This video gives the gist of Clark’s statement but it cuts off before he mentions how lucky it was that Artan’s car was stopped by the barrier. Clark says that if the barrier hadn’t stopped his car, Artan would have been able to drive into the mass of 40-50 people who were outside because of the leak. Instead, his car died and he resorted to the knife for about a minute before he was shot and killed by university police officer Alan Horujko. Horujko was already nearby because of the suspected gas leak.

This is interesting:



And one guy thought that it was "all a misunderstanding". :roll:

Diriving your car at a group of people, then stabbing them....totally understandable how that could be an "accident". :roll:

Those idiots have been literally brainwashed.

Reporter is beautiful. If she asked me questions I might give a provocative answer just so I could talk to her longer.*

I saw this posted in the Crime Thread by Dinosaur: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=10103&start=1370

This is also likely another one of those "homegrown" terrorists (just another of those innocent Somali boys).

Routine arrest leads Minneapolis police to arsenal
MAY 15, 2017 — 3:48PM

Minneapolis police uncovered an arsenal of guns and bomb-making devices during a routine arrest last week.

According to police, a man walked by a parked car in north Minneapolis about 5 p.m. Thursday and confronted the people inside after they threw food wrappers on the ground. They ignored him until he paused to get the car license number. The men then got out of the car and indicated they had guns, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday.

The man flagged down officers, the complaint says, but the men from inside car continued to yell at him and resisted the officers’ attempts to control the situation. The men were insistent they needed to be near the car because a drone was coming to deliver a package, the complaint said. Because of the suspicious circumstances and fear for the man’s safety, the men were placed in the squad while officers searched their car.

Inside, the officers found a hand grenade, handgun, assault rifles and magazines and a large quantity of ammunition, the complaint said. They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts.

Bomb squad personnel called to the scene noted that the large amount of ammunition and electronic devices could be used for bomb-making, the complaint said.

Abdullah N. Alrifahe, 27, of Minneapolis, was charged with a gross misdemeanor for carrying a pistol in public without a permit. In December, he was convicted of the same offense.

It could not be determined whether the FBI or another federal agency is investigating.

A fucking hand grenade? In their car?

And they arrested him for carrying a hand gun? WTF?

I'm pretty sure having a hand grenade is a pretty serious crime. Or any such explosive device. Especially in a public area.
