Muslim terrorists on American soil
by Doug Hagmann
For a 40-month period, I intermittently conducted surveillance and field investigation of several separate and unrelated locations in the state of New York, including but not limited to surveillance of the Jamaat ul Fuqra headquarters at the foot of the Catskill Mountains in a rural area near Hancock, NY. The covert surveillance and field investigation of this compound itself was conducted from May 2004 through February 2006, following a series of covert site inspections in 2003.
In late January, 2006, I submitted my written interim report of findings to the appropriate federal agency. Before the ink was even dry on my report, as they say, I was notified by a friend inside the Department of Homeland Security (who later became an invaluable confidential source) that the head of the group once designated by the U.S. Department of State (a designation that was later lifted), Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who resides in Pakistan, was made aware of my investigation and was preparing a public religious pronouncement against me.
As you might imagine, I was shocked, as the dissemination of my very extensive investigative report was extremely limited. Despite this limitation, Gilani reportedly knew details that only someone in possession of that report could possibly know. And based on my findings, he issued a very public religious statement against me and another investigative researcher. The statement can be accessed on Gilani’s site at this link. It is important to note that Gilani was once a suspect in the kidnapping of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was later beheaded.
