“Old laws useful against terrorism”

IN THE battle against terrorist-scientists, old-fashioned laws still matter. Take the case of Yazid Sufaat, a Malaysian former army captain with a science degree from the United States, and an Al-Qaeda operative.

Terror groups handpick their terrorist-scientists, suggesting the importance of chemical or biological weapons for terrorists.

Yazid was chosen by Hambali, the operations chief for the regional militant group Jemaah Islamiah. The duo travelled to Indonesia some time before 2001 to interview a microbiologist working in a government research facility, said research analyst Idznursham Ismail.

But Hambali did not see leadership potential in the Indonesian, and Yazid was chosen to head the anthrax programme instead. Yazid is believed to have tried to cultivate and load anthrax onto weapons in Afghanistan  …

His home in Kuala Lumpur was allegedly used for meetings of senior Al-Qaeda members, including one to discuss plans to crash planes in the United States on Sept 11, 2001.

He was detained in Malaysia under the Internal Security Act (ISA) in 2001, and held for seven years.

In 2011, the ISA was repealed. Last year, he was charged in Malaysia with promoting acts of terrorism in Syria.

But the Malaysian courts ruled that he cannot be put on trial under the new law, the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act, as it does not cover terrorism activities conducted outside Malaysia.

Yazid was rearrested a week later and accused of being a member of a terrorist group, Tanzim Al-Qaeda Malaysia. …

DXer asks:

why is Ivins’ polygraph is not disclosable under FOIA?

Currently, it is under seal. Dr. Ivins has passed away. The case is closed. Just because it would not be admissible in court is not justification for its withholding under FOIA.

The FBI publicly relied on the polygraphs — both of which Dr. Ivins passed — as part of its “science” in publicly accusing him The FBI should produce it to GAO and it should be disclosed by DOJ under FOIA.

DXer commented on * Did the FBI Scientist Throw Out The Other Slants That Did Not Use Specified TSA Remel Slant Or Only Dr. Ivins’ February 2002 Submission From RMR 1029 From Which Its Scientists Had Made A Dried Powder? Who Threw It Out?

****** ****** ****** ****** ******

DXer: It was the lab that threw out Dr. Ivins’ slant that admits to having made a dried powder out of RMR 1029. Ivins didn’t. The expert working for the FBI did. All of Amerithrax “Ivins Theory” was a crock. And the FBI says Ivins acted deceptively? It was the FBI that never disclosed its expert had made a dried powder out of RMR 1029.
