WASHINGTON Yuval Aviv, who predicted the Al Qaida strikes on London's mass transit system in 2005, said he believes Al Qaida was planning a series of mass-casualty strikes throughout the United States.

Aviv said the most likely targets were places such as Disneyland, Las Vegas Casinos, Malls and Subways.

"The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country terrorists like big impact involving at least five to eight cities, including rural areas," Aviv, a former Mossad official said.

Aviv, responsible for the Israeli offensive against the Palestinian Liberation Organization in the early 1970s, said many of those sites designated by Al Qaida comprise easy targets.

He said an Al Qaida agent could simply drive a car loaded with explosives into the parking lot of the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas and walk away.

Al Qaida does not plan suicide hijackings similar to its attacks on New York and Washington in 2001.

Aviv said Al Qaida has determined that American passengers would immediately fight Islamist hijackers.

Instead, Al Qaida could bomb the entrance to the departure terminal of a major U.S. airport.

Aviv, chief executive officer of the New York-based Interfor, cited the failure of airport authorities to check baggage before people enter the facility.

"It would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next to them to watch their bags for a minute while they go to the restroom, and then detonate the bags before security even gets involved," Aviv said.

"In Israel, security checks bags before people can even enter the airport."

Aviv, today a consultant to the U.S. Congress, said the federal government has been alerted to the prospect of a major Al Qaida strike.

He said U.S. intelligence has determined that a likely source of a mass-casualty strike would be an American Muslim, particularly one who flew often to the Middle East.

"Or Muslims in the Military !"

"These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans;

but that we Americans won't know or understand a thing about them," Aviv said.

I'm glad that Congress hired this guy as a consultant. He seems like the kind of guy who can see risks that the rest of us can't.

I hope that the people in charge of such things will pay attention. Imagine a couple of malls getting hit the weekend before Christmas.

I forsee a Mumbai style attack. Grenades, rifles, RPGs. Terrorists take over a mall or casino, lock everyone inside. Ambush first responders and them methodically kill as many people inside as they can before they are killed. It would probably be coordinated with several other such attacks across the country. It would be timed so that Obamabi could surrender in time for the evening newscasts.

A strong argument for CWP's and open carry. The common theme for these massacres is the cowards attack in places where there is a near zero chance of them being the only ones armed.

Yep, cities like NYC who try and imprison people like Bernard Goetz for carrying/shooting a criminal.

Never been a big fan of the MAC-10. I would use assault rifles and make sure that everyone had bandoliers full of magazines. Stealth would not be a consideration. Just drive a van full of the shooters right up to the entrances. Drop a couple of satchel charges right outside the entrances to be used on the first responders. Since this would be a suicide attack having some guys hidden in cars outside to gun down first responders would add to the confusion as these would have to be dealt with first before the carnage inside could be dealt with.

Once these were dealt with and an assault team tried to assault the mall the satchel charges would be used against them.

The shooting teams inside the mall would chain all exits and break the keys off in all the locks. This would prevent a terrorist from losing his keys if he was overpowered. The attack would be in several phases. The first phase would be killing as many people as possible in the first few minutes. The next phase would be going back and killing the ones cowering in corners, under clothes racks and not really well hidden. The final phase would be finding the last few. These could be used for "negotiations." To stall in preperation to killing them as horribly as possible in front of TV cameras. Releasing them with remote detonated charges taped to them or something.

Coordinating several attacks like this across the country at the same time would cause unequalled terror and in a pants pissing show of leadership, Obama would blame Bush!

He's Mossad. That's what they do. I knew a SF Operator from a previous job and said that from all the foreign operators he's worked with, the ones you NEVER want to mess with are the Israelis. And being that I've heard that from ex-SEALS, ex-NSA wonks, and active DHS desk jockeys. . . I tend to listen if Mossad says anything.
