The Fact That There's A $5M Reward On His Head Has Nothing To Do With It

| No Comments

It's hard to tell whether no attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11 is a sign that our security services are doing a bang-up job or a sign that AQ et. al don't have anybody in country capable of doing anything. Regardless of what's going on inside the 'black box,' so to speak, the outside-the-box observable outcome is the same: no terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.

So whether or not you believe that this guy is planning to pop a nuke or dirty bomb on the first day of Ramadan (September 24)*, the FBI is REALLY interested in him, so I'm going to jump in with Ace and Rusty and Allah and Dan and Gateway Pundit and put his picture up for my dozen readers to see (yes, I think I actually have a dozen readers now!):

Adnan G. El Shukrijumah

According to the FBI page, he's 5'3" - 5"6, 132 pounds, with an average build. Also:

El Shukrijumah occasionally wears a beard. He has a pronounced nose and is asthmatic. El Shukrijumah speaks English and carries a Guyanese passport, but may attempt to enter the United States with a Saudi, Canadian, or Trinidadian passport.

As Ace puts it:

I read Freakonomics (finally) on the bus ride back, and if there's one big take-away from the book, it's the power of asymetical information to be used corruptly, and the dissemination of information via the Internet to destroy the asymetrical advantage and reduce corruption or criminality.

This guy has a big asymetrical informational advantage-- not many people know what he looks like. Let's change that.

Why do I suddenly feel like I've stepped on the set of America's Most Wanted?

(*) I was explaining this to a friend, and he asked what Ramadan was. I gave him the quick, dirty, misleading, and probably offensive analogy that it was kind of like a Muslim Lent. Except that I'm not looking to kill anybody until at least halfway through, when whatever I gave up starts to itch at me, and when I say "I'd kill somebody for a Mountain Dew right now," this isn't what I meant.
