Somali Fatwa: al-Shabab is not Islamic

12 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

160 scholars have signed onto a fatwa declaring al-Shabab to be kufr (un-Islamic). Pretty bold stuff considering the signing was done in Mogadishu. Politically al-Shabab has had some splinter problems lately.

IMINT says… nukes!

11 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

While everyone’s distracted with Syria and international problem child, number two, it looks likethe world’s number Un problem child has decided it’s a good time to kick off his reactors, especially since we learnt yesterday that Iran claims nuclear enrichment is an ‘inalienable right’. Fissile materials, reactor technology and scientific knowledge have to come from […]

Mission Implausible

10 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

This photo will self-destruct in 10 minutes. Timed destruction and descrambling devices come to the iPhone crowd, ostensibly designed for the party crowd to share things more “discreetly” but the wider applications are… interesting. In other news, this week NSA will begin trying to uncrack the encrypted visual sharing and time-detonated files on your iPhone.

Follow the (digital) money

8 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Having seen a few American media sources alternately praising (anarchocapitalism ftw!) and damning (oh noez, it’s a digital hawala!) the recent court decision on Bitcoin’s official standing as a currency down there, Canada is going ahead with Bitcoin kiosks — although having your wallet in your phone to steal may not be my personal idea […]

2 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

We’ve all heard of fake cops, fake firefighters, fake medical staff, and nuisance tipsters but this twit took attention-whoredom to a new level. An acquaintance acquainted with the situation from the utility side says this happens more than you’d expect, but rarely does the wannabe take it to the 3rd degree like this. Hmmmm.

Interrogation resistance tactic

1 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Interesting article – a rare media mention of an enemy resistance tactic during CT interrogation. (Sorry not to post any analysis, but that’s outside the geography with which I’m familiar.) Times of India usually has some pithy stuff for those who would like to follow the mujahideen situation in India as post of the larger […]
