Al-Qaeda's 22 Tips For Evading Drones

Tyler Durden's picture


This document is one of several found by The Associated Press in buildings recently occupied by Al-Qaeda fighters in Timbuktu, Mali. Written by Abdullah bin Mohammed, apparently with God’s help, with the goal "of disabling the new strategy of the American army at the medium or long-range levels," through three methods: the formation of a public opinion to stand against the attacks, deterring of spies, and tactics of deception and blurring. These 22 tactics are as follows...

  1. It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russian-made “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer-know-how.
  2. Using devices that broadcast frequencies or pack of frequencies to disconnect the contacts and confuse the frequencies used to control the drone. The Mujahideen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made “Racal.”
  3. Spreading the reflective pieces of glass on a car or on the roof of the building.
  4. Placing a group of skilled snipers to hunt the drone, especially the reconnaissance ones because they fly low, about six kilometers or less.
  5. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using the ordinary water-lifting dynamo fitted with a 30-meter copper pole.
  6. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using old equipment and keeping them 24-hour running because of their strong frequencies and it is possible using simple ideas of deception of equipment to attract the electronic waves devices similar to that used by the Yugoslav army when they used the microwave (oven) in attracting and confusing the NATO missiles fitted with electromagnetic searching devices.
  7. Using general confusion methods and not to use permanent headquarters.
  8. Discovering the presence of a drone through well-placed reconnaissance networks and to warn all the formations to halt any movement in the area.
  9. To hide from being directly or indirectly spotted, especially at night.
  10. To hide under thick trees because they are the best cover against the planes.
  11. To stay in places unlit by the sun such as the shadows of the buildings or the trees.
  12. Maintain complete silence of all wireless contacts.
  13. Disembark of vehicles and keep away from them especially when being chased or during combat.
  14. To deceive the drone by entering places of multiple entrances and exits.
  15. Using underground shelters because the missiles fired by these planes are usually of the fragmented anti-personnel and not anti-buildings type.
  16. To avoid gathering in open areas and in urgent cases, use building of multiple doors or exits.
  17. Forming anti-spies groups to look for spies and agents.
  18. Formation of fake gatherings such as using dolls and statutes to be placed outside false ditches to mislead the enemy.
  19. When discovering that a drone is after a car, leave the car immediately and everyone should go in different direction because the planes are unable to get after everyone.
  20. Using natural barricades like forests and caves when there is an urgent need for training or gathering.
  21. In frequently targeted areas, use smoke as cover by burning tires.
  22. As for the leaders or those sought after, they should not use communications equipment because the enemy usually keeps a voice tag through which they can identify the speaking person and then locate him.


In case there are any other tactics or deterring means, please add them here so that the benefit will be wider and I pray to God to save us from the American intrigues and turn these intrigues against them.

Written by Abdullah bin Mohammed

Date 15 Rajab, 1432 (Islamic calendar) corresponding to 17 June, 2011.

"There is the golden solution that shortens the long distances and through which we can bring back the pressure of the American public opinion in a more active way depending on the strategy of kidnapping in exchange for the drone strategy and we should not stop until they stop their strategy which will enable all the supporter of jihad to take part in defeating Petraeus and his new strategy. We start kidnapping Western citizens in any spot in the world, whether in the Islamic Maghreb, Egypt, Iraq or any other easy kidnapping places and the only demand is the halt of attacks on civilians in Yemen which is a just and humanitarian demand that will create world support and a public opinion pressure in America as they are being hurt again. We, therefore, aim at the core of the nation’s strategy which if failed, America, will accordingly collapse."

I hope no one's planned a vacation in the Islamic Maghreb, Egypt, Iraq or any other easy kidnapping places.

Most of these "tips" are either obvious or worthless. They don't have a chance.

Here's a better one:

Assemble a group of three children and, after attaching a ball-and-chain ankle restraint to each one, leave them at the side of the road. This will exploit the drone's innate affinity for targeting children and draw it away from you.

Worthless indeed, but not mirthless...!!!

this Abdullah bin Mohammed is clearly a skilled comedy writer, and probably looking for a way to break into the big time of Hollow-wood, via a little sabbatical he's taking from his more mundane assignments inside ME central command.

Who can blame him for wanting to be the next Sacha Baron Cohen...when you have such rich material as those hilarious ragheads in front of you every day?

Merikans in particular should regard this as an opportunity to revisit the halcyon days of stage[d] mass entertainment with our Arab brothers as foils...fathers can take their boys on a trip back to the golden days of their own youth - when another pseudonymously robed rogue ruled the ring ...

and Ed "the Sheik" sold out the Gardens and Cobo Center to awestruck aesthetes who thrilled to see the delicate pencil sketching and pyrotechnical sculpture work that this artist of arm-twisting would perform on the foreheads of his opponents, while the ref looked the other way.[Hmm, now that I think about it, maybe Ed went to Ft Bragg and begin another career as a premier US army trainer post-ring...the current crops of USA servicemen seem to be more comfortable with torturing and blowing up their foe than good ol mano a mano noble fightin!*]

At any rate, now that I have thought about it more, no way this is ALL worthless stuff @@//

Formation of fake gatherings such as using dolls and statutes to be placed outside false ditches to mislead the enemy.

I say we do just that ---on the grounds of the White House...maybe some greek stlyle statues and some of them blow up style rent boy dolls in hopes that the bathhouse boy inside will wander out in the night and get himself photographed in some kind of compromising position. Or at least fall in a ditch after risin blotto from cokesniffin in his Count Dracula coffin!

Then we can be rid of him and have a real gun nut like Biden in the Big House!

*indeed, for all his bluster and bravado, Eddie was kind of a big coward...he ran out of the ringfrom Lou Thesz in Chicago and hid under a bus...coming to a "Mid-East theatre" near you soon nuff!

(NASB)Revelation 9:3-12
Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. [4] They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. [5] And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. [6] And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. [7] The appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. [8] They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. [9] They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. [10] They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months. [11] They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. [12] The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.

Believe it or not that is exactly what is happening as of late, public assembly and freedom of speech. Everyone thinks in 20th century terms. This is the 21st century. Public assembly is the internet and sites like this, reddit, other blogs and alternate news sites, even MSM news sites that allow commentary. The people are assembling in the comments sections and exerting a mass public opinion in a decentralized manner. Of course you won't hear about that in a centralized state media network. As those that are not flat out stupid tire of the lies in the matrix they will look outside it for answers. They can't control the whole thing, all they can do is try to hide the sections they don't want you to see through centralized access through sites like google that tailor (hide anything not wanted) to their biases. When they start doing blatant blocking of information sites like the do now for copyright protection i.e. sites like piratebay then you know the police state is on like donkey kong and they aren't interested in hiding it anymore.


Interestingly enough it is like a neural network. You can take out a few neurons here and there but the whole thing is now so interconnected, everything just reroutes accordingly based on the mass will of the people. Unless you shut the brain down you really can't control it's thoughts at this point only try to steer it in certain directions. Totaltarian control is impossible. You are almost looking at the beginning of a borg like brain that isn't organic but powered by the thoughts of people. It is like a true democracy in one sense without physical voting cards.

Facebook Blocks Jon Rappoport’s Articles by Jon Rappoport
Jon Rappoport's Blog

Recently by Jon Rappoport: The Ruthless State of the Union: The Current Crime Boss Speaks

I became aware of the block and censorship a few days ago, soon after I wrote and published the article: Ruthless State of the Union: current crime boss speaks.”

That article was about Obama, and it was also about every president as far back as Nixon. It mainly described the absurdities implied by Obama’s vague notion that “we all have to work together.”

Readers began letting me know they couldn’t Facebook-share my articles. This became: no one could share any article that included: “”

As a reporter for 30 years, I know a little about the 1st Amendment. Criticizing the president, or the medical cartel, or any number of other institutions I’ve taken on is par for the course. If some Facebook readers are marking these articles spam or abusive, they should think again.

Lots of people these days believe it’s part of the game to try to censor their perceived opponents. “Why debate or even allow a different voice? Let’s just block it out.”

Blocking the FB posting of my article links could also be part of the Facebook management purge of political activists, particularly those who defend the 2nd Amendment and private gun ownership. This happened to a number of people at last December, and it also happened at Natural News…

/If it wouldn't interfere with some DOJ gun-running or CIA drug-running scam across the Mexican border, I'd be waiting for the story to break that DHS Drone Cowboys shot up some cartel crooks on the Mexican side of the border -- as a preemptive strike against a Clear & Present Danger.  Now that's a plan I could believe in.  Wouldn't that fix the illegal problem, if it didn't kibosh all those business models and shareholder profits that require slave labor from down south?  /sarc  ;-)

We may have use these for the dones against US citizens.

It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russian-made “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer-know-how.

amming of and confusing of electronic communication using old equipment and keeping them 24-hour running because of their strong frequencies and it is possible using simple ideas of deception of equipment to attract the electronic waves devices similar to that used by the Yugoslav army when they used the microwave (oven) in attracting and confusing the NATO missiles fitted with electromagnetic searching devices.

a 50 BMG that shoots 1 MOA (10  inch group at 1000 yards) is a very good (almost competition grade) rifle. They are big and heavy. I say NO WAY you could hit a moving target at ONE SIX????not possible even with luck. You could do some damage to anything on the ground for a few miles in the general direction of fire though.

#4 does NOT stand up to basic ballistics.  The world record for a confirmed sniper kill is held by a Canadian soldier in Afghanistan.  As I recall, the distance was in the 3-4 km range. 

6 km?  Straight up?  LMAO!  Add the effect of going directly against gravity, and the only thing that will have holes is this part of the story.  You'd need AA (anti-aircraft) guns.  Probably 20 or 25 mm cal.

2815 m with a .50 and 2475 with a .338 are the longest confirmed kills right now. Not even half of the distance, not at a steep upwards angle and most notably not towards a fast moving target.

Also, not using some old, banged up soviet-style sniper rifle, top of the hat distance guesswork and optics still made in the last century, but a whole bunch of specialized long-range support equipment like laser rangefinders, ballistic calculators, the finest scopes money can buy and most important, probably quite a bit of time to prepare the shot and years of extensive training and experience.

So, yeah... Using a sniper to hit a drone in the sky from 6 km away: not gonna happen anytime soon.
