Meet The World’s Most Dangerous Dishwasher

Oh look, it’s yet another American Muslim gone bad.

From dishwasher to al Qaeda leadership: Who is Adnan Shukrijumah?

He was born in Saudi Arabia and spent much of his youth in New York and south Florida. Then he vanished.

Investigators now allege that Adnan Shukrijumah has risen to a key position in al Qaeda’s leadership.

The FBI says that after he left America, Shukrijumah started off as an al Qaeda dishwasher, doing menial tasks at training camps.

But he’s much more than a dishwasher now, according to investigators.

“It’s like any other business. He would be equated with being the chief of operations,” says Brian LeBlanc, a special agent for the FBI.

As the alleged director of al Qaeda’s overseas operations, investigators believe he is “extremely dangerous,” LeBlanc says.

“He may not be someone who’s going to come into the United States to conduct the attack, but what makes him more dangerous is he’s out there plotting the attacks and recruiting people to actively do that,” LeBlanc says.

The breakthrough came when LeBlanc, an FBI counter-terrorism agent, linked Shukrijumah to the thwarted New York subway suicide mission last fall — the biggest post-9/11 terror investigation.

Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay admitted they planned to blow themselves up using homemade bombs.

Prosecutors say it was Shukrijumah who called the shots — probably from somewhere along the Afghan-Pakistan border.

“[Shukrijumah] was the one that convinced … them to come back to the United States and conduct the attack here,” LeBlanc says.

But Shukrijumah’s mother — who did not wish to be named in order to protect her privacy — says authorities are using her son as a scapegoat.

“That is not my son. My son is not a violent person. He is very kind, generous,” she says.

Shukrijumah — the eldest son of a Saudi Imam — came to America as a young child.

He’s Fallen And Let’s Hope He Can’t Get up

The Obama Administration is claiming to have killed another top level terrorist. Hopefully, unlike the last terrorist leader they claimed to have killed, this one will stay dead.

May he continue to rest in pieces.

U.S. believes it has killed al Qaeda’s No. 3 man

The U.S. government believes it has killed al Qaeda’s chief operating officer, an Egyptian named Mustafa Abu al-Yazid who is also known Sheikh Sa’id al-Masri and also Sheikh Said.

A U.S. counterterrorism official in a position to know said the al Qaeda leader served as a conduit between al Qaeda’s top two leaders — Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri — and the organization’s various affiliates around the world. Sheik Said was indirectly in contact with Najibullah Zazi, the Afghan immigrant and airport shuttle driver who was arrested and charged last year for plotting to detonate explosives in New York, according to an Associated Press story from October.

“Word is spreading in extremist circles of the death of Sheikh Sa’id al-Masri, widely viewed as the number three figure in al Qaeda,” a U.S. counterterrorism official said. “We have strong reason to believe that’s true, and that al-Masri was killed recently in Pakistan’s tribal areas. In terms of counterterrorism, this would be a big victory. “Al-Masri was the group’s chief operating officer, with a hand in everything from finances to operational planning. He was also the organization’s prime conduit to Bin Ladin and Zawahiri. He was key to al Qaeda’s command and control,” the official said

Bill Roggio, the editor of the Long War Journal, reported Monday night that al-Yazid was killed in a drone strike from May 21 that at the time was believed to kill 10 militants.

So, it seems that Sa’id al-Masri was practically Osama bin Laden’s personal assistant, his right hand man, as close as close can be.

/if we can find and kill al-Masri, why can’t we find and kill bin Laden?
