The mystery of the missing Boeing 777

On Saturday, Malaysian Airlines flight 370, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers, just vanished.  As of right now, no one has found any debris.  An oil slick that was slighted turned out to be ship fuel.  The sea is shallow.  But still, nothing.

Terrorism is an obvious explanation.  Four passengers were carrying stolen passports.  They have been identified as Iranians, but sources say they were using the passports in an immigration scheme, not terrorism.  But who knows?  Some suspect a missile attack, possibly from North Korea.  But satellite surveillance detected no explosion.  Some are saying the plane was just stolen, to be used in a later 9-11 style attack.

Surely the intense searching will find something soon.  But right now, it’s a mystery. [Read more...]

Al-Qaeda takes Fallujah

My 2013 prediction started coming true the week after I made it.  This time my 2014 prediction started coming true the day after I made it!  Al-Qaeda has taken Fallujah, the site of the most intense fighting in the Iraq war, and the U.S.-trained Iraqi security forces are faltering. [Read more...]

Terrorist targeted Wichita airport

A white, non-Arabic American who converted to Islam by reading jihadist sites on the internet was planning a suicide car bomb attack on the airport where he worked in Wichita, Kansas.  Fortunately, his co-conspirator was an FBI agent.

I’m scheduled to fly into that airport later this week!  Last time I was on an airplane, I flew into San Francisco a few hours after it was attacked. [Read more...]

NSA is monitoring online games

Apparently terrorists, military operatives, and spies in real life also like to pretend that they are terrorists, military operatives, and spies.  So the National Security Administration (NSA) and the British equivalent (GCHQ) have been monitoring online games and spying on gamers. [Read more...]

What the NSA can do with cell phone data

He knows when you’ve been sleeping.  He knows when you’re away.  He knows if you’ve been bad or good.  So be  good for goodness sake.  Apparently, Santa Clause works for the NSA.  He also knows who you associate with.  And where you are.

This story from the Washington Post (after the jump) tells how the National Security Administration uses massive data from cell phones to not only track suspected terrorists but to identify other suspected terrorists based on the numbers they frequently call.  They can also use cell phone data to determine where these people are at any given time!  (Combine that with drone technology. . . .)

The information about what the NSA is capable of doing with cell phone data is fascinating.  You can see how it is a potent anti-terrorism tool.  But imagine how a government could use this technology to trace, say, a dissident political network. [Read more...]

NSA tracking porn visits to discredit enemies

According to a document leaked by Edward Snowden, the NSA has been tracking visits to porn sites and other questionable activities as a way to discredit or perhaps blackmail suspected Muslim terrorists.  Read about it after the jump.  Is this a brilliant tactic that should be expanded to combat the pornography plague or a dangerous precedent-setting invasion of privacy?  Or what?
