The group was influenced by volumes on the Tupamaros published by Feltrinelli, "a sort of do-it- yourself manual for the early Red Brigades", and the Italian partisan movement of 1943–45, which was interpreted as an example of a youthful minority using violent means for just end… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Brigades  New York Times 1988 Greece Won’t Extradite Italian http://www.nytimes.com/1988/02/17/world/greece-won-t-extradite-italian.html France Related: Action Directe - France Telegraph:  Terrorist group Action Directe founder 'does not regret murders' (2008) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/3119083/Terrorist-group-Action-Directe-founder-does- not-regret-murders.html EXCERPTED LINKS STASI, EAST GERMANY (GDR) RELATED TO TERRORISM Washington Post  1990/10/14 East Germany’s Dirty Secret.  By Lally Weymouth https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/opinions/1990/10/14/east-germanys-dirty-secret/09375b6f-2ae1-4173- a0dc-77a9c276aa4b/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.d8a1c3ce2893 The defector, who insisted on anonymity, described a GDR that has been a haven for terrorists of all kinds.

Eight of them had gone to al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan for training that included use of AK-47s and mortars and study of military tactics, they said, and the group's leader in Singapore, Ibrahim Maidin, underwent military training in Afghanistan in 1993. Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the Philippines: Two of the 15 people who were arrested were released, but ordered not to contact any terrorist organization for the next two years. They had donated money to religious organizations involved with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the Philippines, where they had visited a training camp, but were not members of Jemaah Al Qaeda -Singapore Plots: Jemaah Islamiya What is Jemaah Islamiya? Jemaah Islamiah is a Southeast Asian militant extremist Islamist terror group dedicated to the establishment of a Daulah Islamiyah in Southeast Asia Possible Australia link to Jemaah Islamiya - Halal (a few Australians involved in Fat Leonard) http://www.islamiccouncilwa.com.au/ Plot: Afghan related organization called Jemaah Islamiya in Singapore: Plot against Navy in January 2002, very shortly after 9/11: The plot, these sources say, included plans to attack U.S. Navy ships, sailors and the nightspots they frequent. The 17,000 Americans living in Singapore and other expatriates were also among the targets. People: Ibrahim Maidin, underwent military training in Afghanistan in 1993. Mohamed Khalim bin Jaffar, Mohamed Elias. What was under surveillance by the terrorists: the Embassy and Australia came up in Fat Leonard The group also carried out surveillance of the U.S. Embassy, the Australian High Commission, the Israeli Embassy and commercial buildings housing U.S. companies in conjunction with a group from outside Singapore Three terrorist cells: Authorities said three cells were involved in planning attacks: First cell: One was to target a shuttle bus service used by U.S. personnel in Singapore, and Singapore official said a videotape made by its leader, Mohamed Khalim bin Jaffar, was found in the rubble of an al-Qaeda leader's house in Afghanistan.  For unknown reasons, the plan was not carried out.  Under a second plan, U.S. Navy vessels northeast of Singapore between Changi and Pulau Tekong may have been targeted for bombing. Khalim's possessions included a map that showed observation posts in Singapore and Johor and a "kill zone" in the channel between Changi and Pulau Tekong.  Authorities said he had a list of more than 200 U.S. companies in Singapore, two tampered Singapore passports, 15 forged Malaysian and Philippines immigration stamps, night-vision binoculars and papers describing how to make bombs.  Second cell: The second cell obtained photographs in April 2000 of Paya Lebar Air Base and the U.S. planes there as a potential target. The pictures were found among bin Jaffar's possessions.  The group also carried out surveillance of the U.S. Embassy, the Australian High Commission, the Israeli Embassy and commercial buildings housing U.S. companies in conjunction with a group from outside Singapore, two members of which told the cell they had stockpiled four tons of ammonium nitrate in Malaysia and needed 17 more. Mohamed Elias, a 29-year-old manager, tried to make the purchase but was arrested by Singapore authorities before he could do so. Third cell: Authorities said a third cell formed after last September's terror attacks in the United States. They observed targets that included U.S. companies, but stopped when they heard other suspects had been arrested by Singapore authorities. Earlier plots discovered as early as Dec. 2001 Wikipedia Singapore embassies attack plot https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_embassies_attack_plot The Singapore embassies attack plot was a plan in 2001 by Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) to bomb the diplomatic missions and attack personnel of the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Israel based in Singapore. There were also several other targets. The plot was uncovered in December 2001 and as many as 15 people were arrested in Singapore within a month. Further investigation and intelligence prompted the detention of another 26 persons from 2002 to 2005. As of 2006, 37 of them were still being detained without trial, under the Internal Security Act. Four had been released on restriction orders. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_embassies_attack_plot 2003 and beyond: TPP, Australia, etc.: Free Trade Agreement (Singapore and related issues involving free trade agreements) http://www.naftaclaims.com/commissionfiles/US-Singapore_Investment_Chapter.pdf https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/courts/news/2004/03/16/611/use-free-trade-agreements-to-fight- corruption-and-promote-democracy/ http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-03-18/free-trade-agreements-used-help-american-workers-now-they-hurt- them http://waysandmeans.house.gov/Media/pdf/singapore/hr2739Singachievesobjectives.pdf http://dfat.gov.au/trade/agreements/safta/pages/singapore-australia-fta.aspx https://www.mti.gov.sg/MTIInsights/SiteAssets/Pages/TPP/Seven%20things%20you%20should%20know%20about%2 0the%20TPP%20(Final).pdf https://www.transparency.org/whatwedo/answer/anti_corruption_and_transparency_provisions_in_trade_agreement s Earlier Pre-9/11 Environment (Singapore-USA) Singapore Window: Lee's memoirs reveal covert aid to Khmer Rouge (10/02/2000) http://www.singapore-window.org/sw00/001002sc.htm Excerpt: South China Morning Post AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE in Phnom Penh: CAMBODIA'S genocidal Khmer Rouge and allied non-communist insurgents received massive sums of largely covert aid from China, the United States, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand in the 1980s, according to Singapore Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew.As much as US$1.3 billion was spent supporting rebel groups fighting Vietnamese and allied Cambodian forces after Hanoi's invasion of Cambodia, which toppled the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979.  "Our representative on the Thai- Malaysian-Singaporean-US group that met in Bangkok to co-ordinate our programme estimated that the United States dispensed a total of about US$150 million in covert aid to the non-communist groups," the former Singapore leader said in his recently published memoirs.  http://www.singapore-window.org/sw00/001002sc.htm 1988: Hendrickson Affair    2006 (est) - Current:  Fat Leonard Case    2015: Asian Summit/Obama Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore%E2%80%93United_States_relations 2015 Asian Summit - Obama Bilateral relations Hendrickson Affair (1988) Free Trade Agreement (2003) Visa Waiver Country Military Relations: Singapore has long standing military relations with the United States.

Even worse, the government can no longer carry out one of its most basic core missions: to fight and win the nation’s wars. Instead, the massive outsourcing of military operations has created a dependency on private firms like Blackwater that has given rise to dangerous vulnerabilities….Our dependency on military contractors shows all the signs of the last downward spirals of an addiction. If we judge by what has happened in Iraq, when it comes to counterinsurgency and the use of private military contractors, the U.S. has locked its national security into a vicious cycle. It can’t win with them, but can’t go to war without them.  https://www.brookings.edu/articles/the-dark-truth-about-blackwater/ Later articles added 2020 Updates:  2021/02/24 This page likely was moved from Rivergold dot net in the past few months, along with a 9/11 section.  It’s currently not one of the most organized or best thought out pages on the website.  There are far more terrorist incidents and terrorist groups than listed here.  The main point behind having this section is that  in dealing with police activities, drugs, cartels, narcoterrorism, urban terrorism and more, there are often multiple points of intersection.  Some of the most dangerous groups inside and outside the United States include those linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Saudi Arabia-oil and gas continuum, as well as the old and new OPEC and derivatives continuum.  It can be argued that Biden and Harris are part of the corruption continuum that has plagued the Democrat Party for decades.
