Al Qaeda's 'future works' found encoded in porn

Hundreds of documents were discovered by German cryptologists embedded inside a pornographic movie on a memory disk belonging to a suspected al Qaeda operative arrested in Berlin last year. Details of the documents were obtained by CNN and reveal an inside track on some of the terror group's most audacious plots and a road map for future operations.

Future plots include the idea of seizing cruise ships and carrying out attacks in Europe similar to the gun attacks by Pakistani militants that paralyzed the Indian city of Mumbai in November 2008. Ten gunmen killed 164 people in that three-day rampage. Read the full story

Part of the treasure trove of al Qaeda documents also includes an analysis from al Qaeda's most capable planners, Rashid Rauf. The document - meant for al Qaeda's senior leadership - shows he was intimately involved in planning the devastating attack on the London transport system in 2005, and tells the inside story of the planning for that attack and another that failed just weeks later. Read the full story

Other revelations: The origins of the liquid bombing plot. The conspiracy was broken up on August 9, 2006, two weeks before the plot to bring down planes using liquid explosives was set to be launched. And ever since it was uncovered, the world's airline passengers have been restricted in the liquids they can carry on board. Read the full story

    It's so easy to see that they started using encryption within the porn just as an excuse to see the porn, still acting like they are following God. Truly they are fooled and used by the devil.

    Al-Qaeda leaders are mostly Muslim clerics. Islamic clerics are colluded with Muslim monarchs and leaders to perpetuate their satanic Islamic religion, in exchange, Islamic clerics exert power over their people as judges, police, jurors, inquisitors, administrators, etc. Islam grants "divine rights" to monarchs, leaders and powerful people, they can seize their countries natural resources (oil) entirely for themselves, they can have hundreds of concubines and all the sexual pleasures, they can free or incarcerate anyone and always have the last word on any civil, military or religious matter. No wonder they must impose their diabolic Islamic religion otherwise Satan will take away their privileges.

    Why do I not believe this, that a supposed foreign terrorist organization, Al-Quada, would follow a Nazi blueprint for future attacks? This does not sound like any sort of radical Islamist planning to me. Sounds like Zionist planning–exactly what "Al-Quada" claims to be against.

    Do not let yourself get distracted.

    I imagine this comment will receive much hatred and/or be deleted, but I don't mind. This is my opinion, and it just makes it look like Israel needs to be protected like a little baby, just that much more. It thusly then coaxes the United States into its ~500th war.

    Let's stop messing around with other countries. Jesus christ, you'd think people around the world would realize that the "War on Terror" is actually a huge facade, an excuse to invade any country the USA wants, just because you CANNOT win a war on terrorism. It's a perpetual war. This is the genius behind this "war" orchestrated by the same people that came up with PNAC and who are wealthy bankers or armament/oil companies, and also the reason why many people, myself included, hate this war on "terrorism". It's a cruel, cruel joke, designed to strip the freedoms from people and an excuse for the USA to set up imperialistic dominance across the entire world.

    Tsunamis of SE Asia can not have been an earthquake which always have pre-tremours. It was discovered in 2006 that nuclear grade heavy water was being produced in Thailand without the knowledge or permission of international bodies that police matters concerning nuclear technology. A criminal network operating out of Thailand and the UK simulated a detonator for a nuclear explosion to take place by working out the wavelength-shockwave these detonators create to cause an atomic explosion. This was used to detonate the heavy water they deposited at the bottom of the ocean. No radiation have been detected because the chain of events were polarised to North when they explosions took place in the Southern hemisphere which means the radioactivity and impact of the explosion is dragged through the centre of the earth.

    Destroy this filthy religion of Islam, in the name of Yahweh.

    These people are like scum, and my country will smash even the heads of their children.

    Israel will not tolerate their filth any longer.

    America will either pledge support, or be viewed as hostile.

    Israel comes first.

      Oh puh-lease... Essau.
      Israel is pretty near the bottom of my "TO DO" list. It's high time they stop hiding behind US skirts and stand on their own. Almost none of the original groups from the Israelis and Palestinians (back in 48) are left alive and the rest have been fighting for so long that they do not remember for what they fight, and do so because they know nothing else.
      It's time the US cease aid to Israel and let them get on with it. Not a popular viewpoint in the US.
