And by lone wolf, we mean somebody fully integrated into the radical Islamic religion, may carry a business card stating that he/she is a ‘Soldier of Allah‘, and has continual correspondence with high-ranking overseas members of the Taliban. Like that other famous ‘lone wolf’ Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The important thing to remember here is that it will have nothing to do with radical Muslims. Nothing.
Via the New York Post:
Just days before the one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, US authorities are warning that while there is no specific, credible threat to the US homeland they remain concerned “lone wolf” terrorists could use the date to avenge the former al Qaeda leader.
In an intelligence bulletin issued late Wednesday, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and US Northern Command note that terrorist groups such as al Shabaab in Somalia, northern Africa’s al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and the Pakistani Taliban have called for revenge against the United States for killing bin Laden during the May 1, 2011 raid on his hideout in Pakistan.The bulletin says al Qaeda or its affiliates would view an attack “on this anniversary as a symbolic victory,” especially in the wake of losses suffered by al Qaeda through US drone attacks and other efforts overseas.In addition, according to the bulletin, authorities remain concerned that so-called “lone wolf” extremists not already identified “will execute attacks with little or no warning on or about the anniversary of bin Laden’s death.”
