Terror Attack Directives Appear On Internet - May Signal Pending Strike

Just posting and not sure if true...but it appears no one is..........In depth report from Homeland Security US on an Internet post containing detailed instructions that may signal a pending terror attack......
post was initially published on August 2, 2008 under the title “Commandments [Directives] Before the Strike,” and appears to be a sort of a conflict management guide, or instructions on what Muslims should do prior to the attack, actions that should be undertaken concurrent with the attack, and well as additional instructions following the attack.

the timing appears to focus on the Tuesday following the end of Ramadan, which would be October 7, 2008. The nature of the attack is less clear.

greater in magnitude than the 9/11 attacks and makes reference to the possibility of it being nuclear in nature,...New York, as the financial capital of the U.S., and Washington, DC, as the nation’s capital, as being both desirable and affected.

ALERT: Instructions for actions Muslims are to take before, during & after an attack in the U.S. posted;
- Message suggests activation of worldwide jihad following U.S. attack;
- Message indicates large-scale attack within the U.S., perhaps early October

What makes this post particularly interesting is the limited number of replies to date – a total of three- despite the length of time it has been posted. Further, the replies in this case are general blessings, such as “May Allah Bless You” and general wishes of support for the operation. Based on extensive research of historical posting patterns over the last seven years suggest that this posting could be classified, recognized and acted upon as an order, as opposed to being a point for further discussion.

Perhaps the most disconcerting aspect of this posting might not be the message itself, but the message when viewed through the prism of historical patterns exhibited subsequent to the 2001 terrorist attacks. While the contents of the message are revealing, they become even more relevant when analyzed in tandem with the threat of worldwide jihad in advance of the bombings in Yemen and Pakistan.
