CAPTURED Asia's most-wanted terrorist suspect, Hambali, has been handed to the US authorities and is being questioned at an undisclosed location following his arrest in Ayutthaya Thailand. His wife has been turned over to the Malaysian authorities, on arrest warrants they had for her.
South East Asia leader of Jemaah Islamiyah or JI for short captured near Bangkok ,  both local and American intelligence sources led to his capture. The Royal Thai Police Department received a check for the major share of the bounty which was $10 million US.

 

Highly Covert U.S.-Thai Operation Nabbed Hambali

The operation by the CIA and Thai counter-terrorism authorities that captured top al Qaeda operative Hambali was so secret that few inside the U.S. government knew of it beforehand.

"It was highly compartmented. Hardly anybody knew about it. It was exceedingly carefully planned and carried out, and even within the U.S. government hardly anyone knew about it," a U.S. official said on condition of anonymity.

Hambali, born Riduan Isamuddin, was hunted throughout Southeast Asia as a suspect in last year's bombings at a Bali nightclub strip and last week's hotel bombing in Jakarta before his capture earlier this week in Thailand.

The CIA initially brought his presence to the attention of Thai authorities, and the Southeast Asian government put that together with tips from local sources about strangers in Ayutthaya, about 50 miles north of Bangkok.

Thai authorities carried out the "kick-down-the-door" raid on the apartment and grabbed the most wanted man in Southeast Asia, along with his wife and two lieutenants from the al Qaeda-linked militant group Jemaah Islamiah, U.S. sources said.

"They deserve great credit for their professionalism and the way in which they carried out the operation without the loss of life," the U.S. official said. "Nobody was killed."

The wife of the top Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terror suspect Hambali has been jailed for two years under Malaysia's Internal Security Act, the maximum period allowed without trial.
Noralwizah Lee Abdullah was much more than a loyal wife to top terror suspect Hambali: She was a key player in the Jemaah Islamiah (JI) militant group, working as one of their main financial accountants.
 Noralwizah revealed who gave orders .

Hambali's younger brother arrested

 Intelligence Gathering has led to the arrest and handing over of Gun Gun Rusman Gunawan (27), who is the brother of Hambali, projected as the operational chief of the Jemmah Islamiyah (JI) of Southeast Asia. Hambali was arrested in Thailand on August 11 and flown to a secret destination by the US's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for interrogation.

Regarding the arrest of his brother in Karachi and where he is now.  IRS Agents were instrumental.
On September 20 the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Islamabad announced the arrest in Karachi of 13 Malaysian, two Indonesian and two Burmese students on suspicion of links with the JI. It was stated that the arrests were made on a charge of illegally continuing to stay in Pakistan after the expiry of their visas. They were studying in the Abu Bakar Islamic University, and two other madrassas (religious schools) in Karachi.

The FIA in Pakistan was set up after Pakistan became independent for investigating cases relating to corruption, terrorism, narcotics smuggling and other inter-province crime. Over the years, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which has been using jihadi terrorist groups for achieving Pakistan's strategic objectives in India and Afghanistan, removed from the jurisdiction of the FIA many of its responsibilities relating to counter-terrorism.

After September 11, 2001, the US, distrustful of the ISI, pressured Musharraf to make the FIA once again the lead agency for counter-terrorism, and a sizable portion of the US assistance for strengthening Pakistan's counter-terrorism capability is now going to the FIA, and not to the ISI. The US has also been trying to have all the military officers in the FIA replaced by police officers in order to totally "civilianize" the agency once again, as it used to be.



 The two arrested Indonesians as Gun Gun Rusman Gunawan (27) originally from the West Java town of Cianjur, and Muhammad Saifuddin from the Central Java town of Sleman.  The two were arrested at the Abu Bakar Islamic University in Karachi by police officers, but their current whereabouts were unknown. Saifuddin was a new student still on probation, not yet a full permanent student of the university."


 

The brother of Jemaah Islamiyah's (JI) alleged master planner Hambali thought he would be a hard to crack, the 13 students arrested with him were being trained as future JI leaders.

Malaysia's Deputy Home Minister Chor Chee Heung said in Kuala Lumpur that the 13 Malaysians, arrested with six Indonesians from Islamic seminaries in Karachi, were being groomed to lead the al Qaeda-linked Southeast Asian terror network.

They had already undergone training at a Malaysian Islamic school formerly run by senior JI figures, and some were children of JI members in Malaysia, state media quoted the minister as saying.

Pakistan has called the 19 Southeast Asian students a JI sleeper cell and a potential "second generation of JI terrorists."

"We feel we have been able to nip evil in the bud by capturing a would-be second generation of JI's group of terrorists," a senior Islamabad-based security official told AFP Wednesday.

 Investigators are questioning the group, including Hambali's brother Rusman Gunawan, on attack plans and possible hitlists.

"Rusman Gunawan is hard to break. He's come out much tougher than his baby-faced appearance," an intelligence official who was involved in his arrest told us.

"It took two days before he started speaking, but even then there were a lot of contradictions in his statements."

Material recovered from the students indicated they were being groomed for future JI operations, the Islamabad security official said.

"The material was in the shape of computer disks, CDs and literature," he told AFP.

"The computer disks had recorded lectures highlighting the virtues of jihad against anti-Islam forces and the duty of all Muslims to strike terror in the hearts and minds of infidels (non-Muslims)."

"We are now intensively interrogating them on whether they had targets or a hitlist here or outside Pakistan....what were their plans and plots and what sort of linkages they have here."

Gunawan, who had denied links to JI, was arrested from the Abu Bakar University in this port city of 14 million people on September 1 following a tip-off from US investigators interrogating Hambali. Gunawan's capture led to the arrests of the other 18 students.

When interrogators focused on one of the students, 27-year-old Rusman or Gun Gun Gunawan it was hardly a surprise. He's the brother of Hambali, and within weeks officials revealed that Gun Gun had confessed to sending his brother $80,000. He's now widely believed to have acted as a conduit for funds from the Middle East and al-Qaeda to Jemaah Islamiah for up to two years.
 

Hambali, who has been in US custody at a secret location since his capture in Thailand on August 11, is considered al-Qaeda's point man in Asia and the operations chief of JI, which is blamed for the October Bali bombings that killed 202 people and a string of other deadly bombings.

 Hambali's brother had actually been arrested a month ago and handed over to the US. He was not among those arrested on September 20.  "Gun Gun Rusman Gunawan was taken into custody from the Gulshan-e-Iqbal police station by the army a month back. About a month ago, the SHO [station house officer] Gulshan-e-Iqbal police station summoned one of the Indonesian students, namely Abdul Hadi, whose name was written on his passport as Gun Gun Rusman Gunawan, for questioning. At the police station, he was questioned by an army colonel and later was taken towards an undisclosed location.

 Gunawan was known as Abdul Hadi in the institution as his name was very difficult to pronounce. Hadi possessed all documents. Gunawan came there about five years ago.
 Some 147 students were studying in Jamia Abu Bakar. The students belong to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Uganda, Djibouti, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, the Philippines, Maldives, Australia, Ghana, Somalia, Cambodia, Cameron, Kenya, Senegal and Afghanistan. Some 270 Pakistanis are also studying in the institution." We have tracked several of Gunawan's classmates to Thailand but have but have been hindered in tracking their movements by the Pattaya Trans National crime suppression division. which coincidentally is headed by a Muslim Lt. Col.


Another unanswered question is: Did the Pakistani authorities know of the presence of Hambali's brother in Karachi and his reported activities there since 1999 as the coordinator of the visits of JI recruits from Southeast Asia to Pakistan and Afghanistan for training? If so, why they did not act against him until the US made them to?

Other Attacks

Mohammed is also a suspect in the USS Cole bombing, the Tunisian synagogue bombing, and the murder of US journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan.

 

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (Aliases: Ashraf Refaat Nabith Henin, Khalid Adbul Wadood, Salem Ali, and Fahd Bin Adballah Bin Khalid)  is widely reported to have been the military head of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda organization, and was reportedly the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack and other al-Qaeda attacks. On March 1, 2003, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was arrested in Pakistan. He was previously reported arrested or killed in Pakistan on September 11, 2002.

History

He is usually reported to have been born in Kuwait of Pakistani parents. His date of birth has been variously reported as March 1, 1964 or April 14, 1965.

He attended Chowan College, a small Baptist school in North Carolina, for a few years (beginning in 1983) before transferring to the North Carolina Agriculture and Technology University and completing a degree in engineering in 1986. Subsequently he went to Afghanistan and joined the fight against the Soviet Union. (Some sources believe he was fighting in Afghanistan before he came to the United States.)

In 1996, he was secretly indicted by the Southern District of the state of New York for his alleged involvement in a plot based in Manila to destroy twelve commercial airliners flying Asian-Pacific routes. In December, 1994, the conspirators had engaged in a test on a Philippines airliner using only about 10 percent of the explosives that were to be used in each of the bombs to be planted on United States airliners. The test resulted in the death of a Japanese national on board a flight from the Philippines to Japan.

On September 11, 2002, members of Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) variously claimed to have killed or captured Mohammed during a raid in Karachi which resulted in the capture of Ramzi Binalshibh. Some people have reported that Mohammed escaped, but that his family was captured.

On March 1, 2003, the ISI reported that they had captured him in a raid in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The raid was variously reported to be all-Pakistani, in the presence of the United States FBI, or a joint raid with the FBI. Following the report of the capture, some Pakistani officials say he was immediately transferred to US custody, while others said he remained in Pakistani custody. The raid took place at the home of Ahmed Abdul Qudoos, who was also reportedly arrested as an al-Qaida agent.

Many reports have indicated that Mohammed was either an asset or a member of the ISI during the 1980s or 1990s, and that he has carried a Pakistani passport since the 1980s.

Mohammed is also widely described as living a lavish lifestyle, even while he was on the run from the law.
