    Ohio State University attacker praised al-Qaida man in Facebook post, minutes before stabbing spree

    Artan also praised Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaida terrorist who was killed in 2011. Artan described Al-Awlaki as a “hero.” ABC said Al-Awlaki’s “propaganda has been linked to several domestic terrorist attacks in the years after his death.”

    Here is an archive of Anwar Awlaki lectures. It’s been a decade since I did a canvass of his lectures. But it would be useful if someone had an indexed database of his lectures so as to be able to isolate the references to “green birds of paradise.”

    On the next snow day, I may listen to some of the following a listen to find any green birds references.

    “The dust will settle down,” “The letters to the kings,” or “Moazzam Begg interview with Imam Anwar Al-awlaki.” “The Famine – The Plague,” “the Journey of the Soul.””The Hereafter.”

    The statements and writings of Al Qaeda operatives like Ramzi Bin-Al-Shibh are full of them.

    “Also,
    you can watch a premier and exclusive interview with Imam sheikh Anwar
    Al-Awlaki after being on American Hit list”

    Abstract

    To protect troops against the use of anthrax as a biological weapon, the US Department of Defense began an anthrax vaccination program in 1998. 14 years after the inception of the vaccination program, there is no evidence suggesting vaccination against anthrax carries long-term health risks for Active Duty Soldiers.

    Objective
    To investigate the association between Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed (AVA) received while on Active Duty and subsequent disability determined by the Veterans Benefits Administration.

    Design, setting and participants
    Case–control study nested in the cohort of all Active Duty personnel known to have separated from the US Army between December 1, 1997 and December 31, 2005. Cases were ≥10% disabled, determined either by the Army prior to separation (N = 5846) or by the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) after separation (N = 148,934). Controls (N = 937,705) separated from the Army without disability, and were not receiving pensions from the VBA as of April 2007. Data were from the Total Army Injury and Health Outcomes Database and the VBA Compensation and Pension and Benefits database.

    Main outcomes
    Disability status (yes/no); for primary disability, percent disabled (10%, 20%, >20%) and type of disability.

    Results
    Vaccination against anthrax was four times more likely among disabled Veterans with hostile fire pay records (HFP, a surrogate for deployment). Vaccinated Soldiers with HFP had lower odds of disability separation from the Army 0.89 (0.80, 0.98); there was no association between vaccine and receiving Army disability benefits among those without HFP (OR = 1.05, CI: 0.96, 1.14). Vaccination was negatively associated with receiving VA disability benefits for those with HFP (OR = 0.66, CI: 0.65, 0.67), but there was little or no association between vaccine and receipt of VA disability benefits for those without HFP (OR = 0.95, CI: 0.93, 0.97).

    Conclusions
    Risk of disability separation from the Army and receipt of disability compensation from the VA were not increased in association with prior exposure to AVA. This study provides evidence that vaccination against anthrax is not associated with long term disability.

    Mike Reagan, a long time ham radio user, has a new novel positing Al Qaeda as responsible for the anthrax mailings.

      From “The Alienations of Akram Masud…an American Jihadist” by Michael J. Reagan 2012.

      “He was a very experienced and qualified network manager trained in a Pakistani Technical School on Cisco equipment. The USGOV employees thought he was a wizard. He could and did fix anything. Bypassing the USGOV security system was a simple trick for him since he had left a “back door” for himself when he installed the Internet servers.

      He logged on with his laptop, using the alias that he created for communicating with London, and sent a one-line innocuous message with an attachment asking about his next assignment. That done, he headed for the break room where he knew his peers would be hanging out.

      Another Washington day started in the life of a government contractor terrorist.”
