Terrorist Sleeper Cells: What are they?

Sleeper cells – the dormant terrorist minds who are waiting for the most opportune moment to strike but remain mingled in the population have become the most potent weapon of the world wide terrorist organizations. Here is an interesting article explaining what these “Sleeper Cells” are?

Usually it consists of one to three trained and indoctrinated jehadis sent to a particular place with a deadly mission.

Their CV is usually impressive from bringing in arms, ammunition and bombs, they pinpoint a target and then carry out terrorist strikes.

Terrorists who are part of sleeper cells operate mostly in a similar fashion whether in urban India or semi-urban or rural areas.

They roam around freely and live and mix with people to avoid suspicious glances. So, today anticipating their movements and fishing them out has become more difficult.

“To locate them either in the rural pockets or in urban areas like Mumbai we simply don’t have the human resources for it,” former joint-director, Intelligence Bureau, M K Dhar said.

This is not because of lack of intelligence but also because one terror group might have put a cell in place but other groups can activate it – it’s called resource sharing.

And by the time security agencies get a whiff of such a cell, the jehadis usually vanish.

“Without human intelligence if you keep spending your resources then we might get it right once in a few lakh attempts,” Dhar explained.

As many as 65 terrorist modules have been busted in India in the last seven months, according to a senior official concerned with national security.

But many more are active, mostly handled by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

  1. I am concerned about Obama’s ties to radical terrorist groups. These people have helped him to get where he is – and my concern is that they will come looking for their payback once he is elected.

    Here is an article I found online:
    NEW YORK, NY)(September 9, 2008) Nailing down the relationship between “mad bomber” William Ayers and Barack Obama has been the greatest challenge of the 2008 presidential campaign.

    The second biggest challenge of 2008 has been deciphering and understanding Barack Obama’s campaign structure. His campaign is unlike any other presidential campaign in U. S. history. Obama’s operation is authoritarian, disciplined and centralized in Chicago. Obama’s reliance on a nationwide network of local “offices” and mailing lists points inexorably to a political latticework straight out of William Ayers’ revolutionary playbook.

    The bottom line: After an exhaustive investigation ContrarianCommentary.com can confirm that Barack Obama appears to be William Ayers’ “front” for a national, ongoing Maoist-style revolutionary campaign structure which will endure past November 4th.

    Ironically, as we searched for the Ayers-Obama relationship in the present, it was staring us in the face: Obama’s campaign is structured precisely the way Ayers would want. That is why Obama has created “Camp Obamas” across the United States to indoctrinate workers, and adopted other similar Fidel Castro/Hugo Chavez tactics.

    The puzzle pieces are finally starting to fall into place. Last week we asked why would Black Panther party revolutionary Khalid Al-Mansour start soliciting money for Obama’s legal education? The answer: Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, were close associates of the Black Panther Party and even unleashed a terrorist attack on a New York judge who heard a Panther case.

    In the 1980’s, the Ayers/Dohrn revolutionary terror network was still working through individuals such as Al-Mansour, who had sufficiently laundered his radical past to assume respectability as a front for a Saudi Prince. The same way Ayers laundered his own past to become a professor of “education” at Illinois’ taxpayer-subsidized university.

    Ayers and Al-Mansour appear to have been in contact. Ayers vouched for Obama to Al-Mansour, who then began a law school fund-raising campaign among prominent African-Americans.

    Obama’s law degree thus appears to have been financed through the encouragement of persons who had been violent revolutionaries and remain unrepentant to this day, the same unconventional way the purchase of Obama’s Chicago mansion was party financed by an Iraqi billionaire.

    Why did Obama get hired as a “summer associate” in 1989 at the law firm which had hired Ayers’ wife, and where Ayers’ father was a prominent friend of the managing partner at Sidley & Austin? The answer is obvious. Ayers was grooming Obama as his future “front.”

    Where did Obama get his first and only legal job after Harvard? At a law firm where Tony Rezko was a prominent client and where name partner Judson Miner was a law school classmate of Bernadine Dohrn-Ayers. Yes, the pieces are starting to come together.

    Was Obama telling ABC the truth when he said met the Ayers’ at a coffee klatch at the Ayers home in 1995? Ayers had already been working with Obama for seven years; Ayers had appointed Obama to head a $50 million foundation. Did Ayers appoint a stranger? Or a front man? The answer is obvious.

    Obama has relentlessly tried to conceal the Ayers/Obama time line, and the ongoing connections between the men. When bits and pieces of the Ayers/Obama relationship have popped up this year, Obama has sought to debunk and deflate each isolated piece of information. No one was able to grasp the big picture.

    Until today, no one had actually connected all of the dots. ContrarianCommentary.com is the first to do so.

    We always wondered why Obama had structured his campaign the way he did: small “offices” all across the United States. No other presidential campaign has ever done this. Bill Ayers is a proponent of locally based revolutionary tactics. Ayers’ playbook is Mao Tse-Tung’s handbook. And Obama’s campaign structure follows Ayers’ matrix. A nationwide network of “Camp Obamas” controlled from Chicago (i.e. Ayers)? You get the picture.

    Obama is not stupid. He is a bright man, very talented, very personable and, until recently, a man without much of a personal history. But there is a shiftless, searching side to Obama’s personality. Due to childhood neglect and abuse, he is a man without a conscience. He was and remains the perfect front for Ayers’ ongoing revolutionary campaign to subvert and subdue the United States of America.

    It can be said without fear of contradiction, a vote for Barack Obama is in reality a vote to put William Ayers in de facto control of the U. S government.

    William Ayers is an admittedly unrepentant violent revolutionary who waged war against every American and who today is still scheming to wage war against the United States. This time he wants his headquarters to be in the Oval Office of the White House.

    William Ayers is the mastermind behind the rise to power of Barack Obama. He has been since 1988.
