A message recently posted to a jihadist forum proposes how one may destroy the ?leader of the global disbelief,? America, and presents Usama bin Laden, the Emir of al-Qaeda, as unapproachable in his use of the ?human factor? for executing attacks. The author argues that the sleeper cells employed by bin Laden are dormant ?volcanoes,? and once activated are fearless in executing the operation. Conversely, he states: America?s factor are ?a bunch of mercenaries who consider the war a way of making money… of an escape from poverty… and their remaining in the battlefield… is their fear of getting killed for being deserters, which is the punishment for deserters. Their crying and weeping that you see in their pictures is something Muhammad Atta and his brothers do not understand, and they do not have any reason for it!?
Further, to bolster his claim of the impact and stealth of the al-Qaeda ?human factor,? the author notes: ?America?s planes… fleets… soldiers and intelligence could not to stop Muhammad Atta from learning to fly… their flying on the airplanes… whatever you can do!!! And America?s long-range missiles… could not stop Amrozi [the Bali bomber] from laughing.?
