    Default Al Qaeda in South Africa , the (not so) new source of training

    [FONT=Georgia]US and British intelligence have warned the South African authorities to stop “*****footing” with intelligence regarding international terrorists activities in South Africa. “The fact that no bombs have gone off to date in the country doesn’t mean that the threat doesn’t exist within South Africa’s borders,” they warned. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Georgia]They have been frustrated for some years with the South African authorities for not taking action against perceived international terrorist threats.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Georgia]South Africa is a signatory to the United Nations resolution against international terrorism and is thus obliged to act against any such threats.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Georgia]Despite overwhelming intelligence information gathered well before the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa, no action had been taken to date.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Georgia]The cause of the anxiety stems from the fact that thousands of illegal immigrants from Pakistan manage to cross into South Africa, while the government appears to turn a blind eye.[/FONT]

    Not really a surprise that they are there.

    The question is why is the Government taking no action, especially against the 3 known training sites?

    Maybe the Guptas are training some new security guards there?

    If the RSA Government is not prepared to act against the AQ camps, then maybe someone else will.

    And who would that be, I wonder? The political fallout with all its possible consequences comes to my mind.

    Agreed, any nominally 'white nation' goes in and it will hit the fan.
