Its a long read for some (21 pages) but the article offers some good insight on the mysterous terror network that is Al-Qaeda.

the link:
Inside Al-Qaeda's Hard Drive

Here's a clip:
"Perhaps one of the most important insights to emerge from the computer is that 9/11 sprang not so much from al-Qaeda's strengths as from its weaknesses. The computer did not reveal any links to Iraq or any other deep-pocketed government; amid the group's penury the members fell to bitter infighting. The blow against the United States was meant to put an end to the internal rivalries, which are manifest in vitriolic memos between Kabul and cells abroad. Al-Qaeda's leaders worried about a military response from the United States, but in such a response they spied opportunity: they had fought the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, and they fondly remembered that war as a galvanizing experience, an event that roused the indifferent of the Arab world to fight and win against a technologically superior Western infidel. The jihadis expected the United States, like the Soviet Union, to be a clumsy opponent. Afghanistan would again become a slowly filling graveyard for the imperial ambitions of a superpower."

I'm finding it harder and harder to take al-qaeda seriously. Since Sep 11 they havn't even been able to get one crazy ass muslim to leave a bag of burning dogshit on an americans doorstep and ring the bell. Here in the UK the IRA were launching dozens of bomb attacks every year.

While there haven't been any more attacks on American soil, I believe they managed to blow up a hotel in either Thailand or Indonesia(I forget which) that was full of American tourists. Not to mention that they have been behind the beheadings in Iraq.

We don't know who was behind the beheadings in iraq. The story is odd, and the possiblities are.....

That's because 9-11 was carried out by Mossad operatives.

Shhhh! You're not supposed to say that, or else you're an anti-semitic conspiracy wacko.

No need to look for terrorists folks. Just look for the Israeli 'art students' selling paintings to finance Mossad black ops. Oh and we can't forget their 'moving companies' used for transportation, either.

Wipe those tears from your eyes.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

???? We have indisputable proof that 9-11 was carried out by
young Arab males who hijacked the planes. We routinely hear things
coming out of the Arab world, such as a large amount of people
supporting 9-11 and being viciously anti-West.

Let's face facts. A large amount of Muslims do not like the West.
Some of these Muslims are very fanatical. Some of these Muslims
fanatics have intentionally killed innocent civilians in terrorist
attacks. These things are indisputable. How can you deny that?

I have no clue. I know that thousands of people did die, and
a decent amount of the victims(not the hijackers) were muslim.

Well we know for sure at least 19 Muslims died. Your other numbers are questionable

Well, 7 of the 19 'hijackers' were later found alive and well. Yet another glaring hole in the official story.

See here and here.

Guess that makes it 12 then, eh?

Jesus dude, wtf happened to you?! You used to make intelligent, insightful posts. Now you're just acting like every negative Muslim stereotype. Please tell me you're just joking around.
