This is coolbert:
From National Public Radio [NPR] and as seen on CNN we have item of the counter-drone measures document as circulating among those adherents to Al Qaeda.
Captured in the aftermath of the French/Malian offensive SUCH A DOCUMENT SURELY A SIGN THAT THE DRONE OFFENSIVE IS WORKING AND WORKING WELL!
If the drones were not working well and not causing the BIG HURT among the jihadi such a document t would not even exist in the first place? That is what my intuition tells me!!
The 22 tips!
"In Document Left Behind By Al-Qaida, 22 Tips To Avoid Drones Strikes"
"As al-Qaida extremists streamed out of Timbuktu, they left behind a curious document and the Associated Press got its hands on it."
"It's written by Abdallah bin Muhammad, a senior commander of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemeni arm of the group, and it includes 22 bulleted tips on how to evade drone strikes."
For those having further interest, you can download and see the entire document both in the original Arabic and the English translation thanks to the Associated Press.
My instantaneous reaction was that this document is a form of "false flag". Actually written by American operations/intelligence and circulated among the jihadi in the name of Abdallah. Those 22 tips some valid but some also rather than being counter-drone in actuality the types of measures ONE WOULD NOT ADOPT TO AVOID DETECTION BUT RATHER BRING ATTENTION TO YOURSELF!
Perhaps this is not so, but I would like to believe so. Sort of like bomb making recipes surreptitiously placed on jihadi web sites those "bombs" prematurely detonating and killing the would-be jihadi bomb maker in the process?
