Affirmative Action

Al Qaeda-style:

One former CIA weapons of mass destruction analyst who tracked (Aafia) Siddiqui said that she became extremely frustrated years ago, however, when she was told by senior Al Qaeda leaders to help their cause by getting pregnant.

“They told her that the best thing she could do for Al Qaeda was to start popping out little jihadists,” said the former CIA officer, who left the agency in 2006. “She was furious; she knows more about this stuff than pretty much anyone in the organization.”

Siddiqui never gave up her desire to launch attacks against the United States and its allies, according to FBI and Justice Department records made public Monday night.

According to court papers, Afghan national police officers in Ghazni province, south of Kabul, the capital, observed Siddiqui acting suspiciously near the provincial governor’s compound July 17.

When they searched her handbag, they found documents relating to explosives, chemical weapons and weapons involving biological materials and radiological agents, along with descriptions of landmarks in New York City and elsewhere in the United States, and liquid and gel substances sealed in bottles and jars.

Siddiqi, who had earned an undergrad degree from MIT in biology and a PhD in behavioral neuroscience from Brandeis (of all places for an Islamist terrorist!) allegedly served as a US-based “fixer” for admitted 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, before decamping back to her native Pakistan in 2002 as the dragnet tightened around her. Arrested last month in Afghanistan, she apparently managed to wrest a weapon away from a distracted US guard and shoot the room up before being herself taken down.

Charming.
