<nettime> "Al-Qaeda threatens to kill US hostage Islamic web site" traced to Dallas, Texas


            In an effort to serve American national security,
JackBlood.com has traced the address of the alleged Islamic website,
since the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are too busy
tracking down 12-year-old music downloaders, strip-searching 80-year-old
grandmothers at airports, gathering private information dossiers on
law-abiding citizens, and giving away amnesty visas to illegal aliens.
            Statements posted on an 'Islamist website,' by individuals
with alleged ties to Al-Qaeda leader and former CIA protégé Osama bin
Laden, claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of Paul M. Johnson, a
U.S. contractor in Saudi Arabia.
            One of the statements said: "Our fighters of the Fallujah
Brigade in the Arabian peninsula have kidnapped an American, a
Christian, Paul M. Johnson Jr. born in 1955 and working as an
aeronautics engineer," said the statement signed "Al-Qaeda in the
Arabian peninsula" and published on the Islamist website
            The "Al-Qaeda group" claiming responsibility for the
kidnapping posted a passport size photo of Johnson and a Lockheed-Martin
business card on the website. According to their statements, he will be
treated "the same the way U.S. troops have treated Iraqi prisoners."
JackBlood.com conducted a domain name search for the website
www.ansarnet.ws and the following results pointed out to an address in
Dallas, Texas.
