Tom Allard, Jakarta | May 4, 2011

THE killing of Osama bin Laden will bring ''disaster'' to the US and the al-Qaeda leader secured victory even in death, according to radical Indonesian cleric Abu Bakar Bashir.

Bashir, who is in prison as he faces charges of leading and financing a new terrorist organisation, met with his acolytes yesterday for the first time since news of bin Laden's demise.

''Ustad Abu [Bashir] said if the news is true, it means Osama won the battle twice,'' said his spokesman, Sonhadi, who visited Bashir in the Jakarta penitentiary.

''First, he will get the title as martyr in the afterlife and, second, his death is the victory over the hegemony of infidels. Ustad Abu also said Allah will bring disaster upon the US for killing the warrior of Islam … we just don't know what that disaster will be.''

Mr Sonhadi, who himself was imprisoned for four years for hiding terrorist leaders, said Bashir had his doubts that bin Laden had been killed, noting that no pictures of his corpse had been made public.

It was a theme prominent on Indonesian jihadist blogs and comments from militants yesterday, as were predictions of bloody revenge.

''Americans may be partying, celebrating his death. But they will cry later and be blanketed with pain,'' Syawal Yasin told the Jakarta Globe newspaper.

Syawal is the son-in-law of Abdullah Sungkar, who along with Bashir founded Jemaah Islamiah (JI), the terrorist group with direct links to al-Qaeda responsible for multiple attacks in Indonesia, including both Bali bombings.

JI has been badly fractured thanks to successful law enforcement efforts but other extremist groups have come to the fore, including some that are legal and have links to the police and political figures.

The Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI), which has been behind a string of attacks on religious minorities, will hold a commemoration service tonight in honour of bin Laden.

Jakarta's governor and police chief attended FPI's anniversary celebrations last year. The Jakarta police chief, Timur Prabopo, was later appointed national police chief by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. A series of plots have been uncovered in Indonesia in the past two years, including a plan to explode a massive bomb near a church during Good Friday services last month.

Any operational involvement by al-Qaeda in Indonesian militant groups these days remains unclear but great intrigue surrounds the arrest of Umar Patek, Indonesia's most wanted militant, in January in Abbottabad, the same Pakistani city where bin Laden was slain. The arrest followed a firefight in which the JI operative was shot.

Patek was a senior JI member who trained in Afghanistan and acted as deputy field commander in the first Bali bombing that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

Pakistani media reports said Patek was liaising with an al-Qaeda operative, a courier who also worked as a clerk at Abbottabad's post office.

According to an anonymous source from Indonesia's intelligence agency quoted in Koran Tempo, Patek was in Abbottabad to meet with al-Qaeda operatives and plan attacks to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Anthony Bubalo, an analyst writing on the Lowy Interpreter blog, said: ''Perhaps most interesting of all is why bin Laden was not spooked into moving location as a result of Patek's arrest.''

I find it hard to believe some still take these wiki articles seriously, most of it is opinion posted as fact, snopes.com uses the BBC as its source, for those of us who are media savvy we know not to trust these sources without first doing some homework, hence why people listen to this program. Wouldn’t it be better to know Kevin Annett exists, rubbish or not rather than not knowing this is going on at all, most of the listeners to this show can discern information and make their own informed decision, i think it is better to be presented with the information rather than casting it out as rubbish based on a few baseless articles.

ITCCS is very active publicly and many people involved in it have come now come forward, Joshua Lemmens and his group in western Canada, the Belgium network around Toos Niejenhuis, the Italian network around Francesco Zanardi. All of their interviews are posted at http://www.itccs.org peopl,e just need to do a bit of looking. The ITCCS isnt just Kevin Annett given groups like ITCCS Coventry are publishing their own newspaper now and organizing courts through the midlands of the UK.
No-one can really know who is who in a world full of deception however we should try to either support, or, if not at-least investigate thoroughly before rubbishing those who are trying to create real change

Dear Hereward
Some very good “logical” facts dug up!
You mentioned Bali Bombings in your podcast - Pls have a look back at that “war on terror’ bolstering example and particularly Keelty and the AFP’s role!

This is not on any particular issue posted here but for those interested in global geopolitics go to http://tarpley.net/ Webster Tarpley is an historian and economist. He has a weekly radio show called world crisis radio. He has written a number of books and travels both nationally and internationally to give talks and has also debated his opponents on issues like 911 and gives an analysis on ww1 and ww2 ,how they were brought about.Another great author in my opinion is Ellen Brown who wrote Web of Debt http://www.webofdebt.com/ and The Public Bank Solution both books a must read for anyone wondering how our money works and the solution.

Josh Anonymous,
The last couple of months seem to have proven my point that this site is a waste of electrons. Your claim that anonymity doesn’t matter seems to be dispututed by Hereward Fenton in his reaction the “Anonymous” group and he then goes on to name a Josh Jackson, which I suspect we can surmise is you. If you are not concerned with names, do you require names and qualifications of those who are presented as “experts” on subjects with which you disagree?
I wonder if you have been able to do any research and discover that the moisture you claim is carried aloft by aircraft in their fuel is actualy there in the atmospherewhen the aircraft passes by? No, well I suggets you could put on your thinking cap and ponder.

Leonard Clampett,

Non-existence cannot be proven. Known fact.
http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/146-proving-non-existence

Fortunately, science does explain persistant contrails, so there is no need for an alternative (and much less plausible) explanation.

Regarding the video you linked, please pick one topic that you think should be discussed first. Give the time into the video for a reference.

Allow me to treat claims by Dane Wigington with the utmost skepticism. Recently he tried to measure sunlight UV values and failed badly - like on many issues before:
http://metabunk.org/threads/debunked-dane-wigingtons-claims-that-uv-is-off-the-charts.2097/

Wrong interpretation/calculation of measurements - again:
http://metabunk.org/threads/debunked-dane-wigingtons-claims-that-uv-is-off-the-charts.2097/#post-59145

BTW, why are you so obsessed with names? I could not care less about your identity. It has no relevance - either a claim is correct or it is not, no matter who made it.

From the entry 'Contrails dissipate quickly whereas chemtrails linger?'.

Josh Anonymous,

Rather than hiding behind anonymity, please advise who you are, what your experience is and what factual evidence you have to rebut the speaker in this video referred to below. As a denier you are claiming something does not exist, so it is up to you to prove your claim. As chemtrails exist, and can be seen by competent observers, I believe you have set yourself an impossible task. However, try to get on with it and prove your case.
