Tracking terrorists/criminals by geting a link

What do you do with these suspects? Arrest or deport them immediately? No, we need to use them to discover more of the al-Qaeda network. Once suspects have been discovered, we can use their daily activities to uncloak their network. Just like they used our technology against us, we can use their planning process against them. Watch them, and listen to their conversations to see...
who they call / email
who visits with them locally and in other cities
where their money comes from
The structure of their extended network begins to emerge as data is discovered via surveillance. A suspect being monitored may have many contacts -- both accidental and intentional. We must always be wary of 'guilt by association'. Accidental contacts, like the mail delivery person, the grocery store clerk, and neighbor may not be viewed with investigative interest. Intentional contacts are like the late afternoon visitor, whose car license plate is traced back to a rental company at the airport, where we discover he arrived from Toronto (got to notify the Canadians) and his name matches a cell phone number (with a Buffalo, NY area code) that our suspect calls regularly. This intentional contact is added to our map and we start tracking his interactions -- where do they lead? As data comes in, a picture of the terrorist organization slowly comes into focus.

Terrorism mooves in Georgia

. • In the past two years, narcotics trafficking routes established in Georgia in the 1990s have seen an increased volume.
. • The narcotics trade in Georgia has been contested between conventional crime organizations and Chechen guerrilla forces; the latter group seems to have gained the advantage.
. • The Georgian government has offered increasingly ineffective resistance to narcotics trafficking.
. • Narcotics trafficking in Armenia and Azerbaijan has been less than in Georgia, but conditions exist for a substantial increase in both countries.
. • Recent events in Afghanistan have not reduced the flow of heroin through Central Asia into Russia and to the West.
. • Trafficking routes through Central Asia and the Caucasus continue to diversify and expand, fueled by Afghan opium and chaotic conditions in transit countries.
. • Members of several ethnic groups are major participants in the narcotics trade emanating from Central Asia, and Russian criminal organizations appear to play a diminishing role.
. • The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) is known to rely heavily on narcotics trafficking over a number of Central Asian routes to support its military, political, and propaganda activities. That trafficking is based on moving heroin from Afghanistan through Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan, into Russia, and then into Western Europe.
. • As markets and processing capacity expand into new parts of Central Asia, the IMU has been able to adjust its military and trafficking activities to respond to interdiction in given areas.
. • The effect of military losses in Afghanistan on IMU’s narcotics activity is yet unknown, in part because the status and priorities of its leaders are unclear.
. • The Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HT) is a fundamentalist Islamic group whose membership in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan is expanding rapidly. To this point, HT has relied on peaceful means to propagate its central idea of Islamic governance throughout Central Asia.
. • HT’s decentralized structure conceals its activities very effectively. Although HT has funded its widespread educational and propaganda network primarily from overseas contributions, individual cells may be involved in narcotics trafficking.
. • HT’s expanding appeal among the poor provides a strong base for potential terrorist activity, and ongoing repression in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan may drive at least some parts of the organization to respond violently.

Belgium geographical terrorist activities

Belgium occupies a prominent place in both the terror and criminal networks of Western Europe. There have been indications of ambivalence among government officials toward the international anti-terrorist campaign that was launched after September 11, 2002. A senior
515 Aaron. 516 Transparency International, “Global Corruption Report 2003.”
Belgian minister was quoted in 2002 as saying, “Bin Laden’s war is against America, not us.”A Belgian member of parliament described Belgium’s appeal as a base of operations: “We are not a target, but we are such a quiet country that we could be a good preparation country.”518 According to a 2002 confidential report, terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda, the Armed Islamic Group (GIA) of Algeria, the Wahabi Tabligh, and the militant GIA splinter group called the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC) have established logistical support bases among the 350,000 Muslim inhabitants of Belgium. Reportedly the Saudi-backed Salafi movement has established a “state” in Belgium, which has its own Islamist police.
Conventional crime also has found a comfortable home in Belgium. United Nations arms specialist Johan Peleman has speculated that the status of Antwerp as an international diamond-trading center and Belgium’s post-colonial ties with Africa made Belgium a major arms-trafficking center during the Cold War. According to Peleman, the infrastructure established at that time now has fallen into the hands of private individuals and groups. Africa is the source of diamonds used in payment and the main marketplace for illegal arms shipments by these entrepreneurs.520 Until 2000, Belgium was the primary weapons source for the ETA, and it has been a staging point for high-volume arms smugglers such as Victor Bout, Leonid Minin, and Jacques Monsieur. Bout used Ostend, Belgium, as his base of operations until 1997, Minin was based in northern Italy and used documentation from Belgium, and Monsieur was based in Belgium and used documentation from Belgium. Although Bout has been described as a “merchant of death” and continues arms trafficking operations from his base in Bahrain, the international warrant for his arrest issued by Belgian authorities in early 2002 is not for arms crimes but for passing counterfeit currency. This fact may point to another reason that Belgium is favored by criminal groups: the judicial system is notoriously slow, allowing criminals to stay several steps ahead of law enforcement.
517 Marie Rose Armesto, “Europe’s Terrorist Incubator,” The Wall Street Journal, 2 September 2002. 518 Diana Muriel, “Thwarting Terrorist Cells in Europe,” War Against Terrorism report, 23 January 2002. 519 Daily Telegraph report, cited in Shape News Summary and Analysis, 4 June 2002. 520 Alain Lallemand, “Belgium: Hotbed of Arms Trafficking,” Le Soir [Brussels], 7 March 2002 (FBIS Document EUP20020307000027). 521 Judy Pasternak and Stephen Braun, “Following the Trail of Arms to Al-Qaida,” Los Angeles Times, 21 January 2002.; Ian Traynor, “The Gunrunner,” The Guardian [Manchester], 9 July 2001; and Alain Lallemand, “A Belgian Angolagate?” Le Soir [Brussels], 16 June 2001 (FBIS Document EUP20010617000081).

The status of Antwerp as Europe’s main diamond trade center has attracted illegal activity besides arms trafficking. In 2001 Belgium’s General Intelligence Service reported that illegal diamond trafficking with the UNITA rebel organization of Angola was linked with narcotics trafficking and money laundering. The report cited the South African diamond giant DeBeers and intermediaries in Great Britain and Canada. Diamonds reportedly were smuggled from Angola to London and Antwerp via Tel Aviv.
Diamonds also have been instrumental in arms trafficking to other parts of the world; in 2000, Belgian authorities identified diamonds as the exchange currency in shipments to the Middle Eastern terrorist organization Hizballah. Although not specifically linked to the narcotics trade, such trafficking operations, which have stood the test of time and political change, also have the potential to diversify their clientele and the currency that they accept in payment. Several individuals have based especially lucrative arms smuggling operations in Belgium. Terrorist and criminal networks also have benefited from the ease with which Belgian identification papers have circulated; in 2000, some 19,000 passports were stolen. The presence of major international organizations such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization also may reduce the level of identification inspections for entry into the country. A number of non­standard forms of documentation issued by international organizations are allowed. Foreigners from 11 other European countries can enter Belgium with expired passports, and no passport is required for citizens of 17 other European countries. Several individuals arrested in conjunction with the events of September 11 were carrying forged or stolen Belgian passports. Ten suspected al Qaeda operatives currently are in jail in Belgium. Experts have speculated that the assassination of Afghan military leader Ahmed Shah Masood was planned in Belgium.
