This thread makes no sense at all.
First up, the IOL story entitled: "Major terrorists head to court" is in fact dated May 14 2010 at 06:48PM, which does NOT predate Blackjack.
Secondly, i cannot find ANY reference to anything claimed by the op, neither a breakdown of "sections" nor any clue as to how this article is "decoded".
The origional story can be found at: www.iol.co.za
And for everyone's convenience, i shall include the total of said article:
Nouakchott - A Mauritanian court will on Sunday begin the trials of suspected terrorists, including three men accused of murdering four French tourists late in 2007, a judicial source said on Friday.
"Seven cases, including those of the suspected killers of the French tourists, are on the agenda of the trial that begins Sunday before the criminal court of the tribunal in Nouakchott," the source told AFP.
Three men affiliated to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are accused of having shot five French tourists on December 24, 2007, east of the town of Aleg in southern Mauritania, killing four and seriously wounding the fifth.
The suspects are Sidi Ould Sidna and Mohamed Ould Chabarnou, arrested in January 2008 in Guinea-Bissau by local police in cooperation with French intelligence, and Maarouf Ould Haiba, held shortly afterwards in Nouakchott.
The criminal court will also try nine other people charged with "complicity" or "collaboration" in the murders, the source said.
The killing of the French tourists was followed three days later by an ambush on Mauritanian soldiers in the north of the country, in which three were killed.
Since then, the west African desert nation has seen several attacks, killings and kidnappings of Westerners claimed by AQIM.
AQIM emerged from a radical Algerian movement, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, and has in the past four years extended its activities into western Sahel nations, including Mauritania, Niger and Mali.
It claims to be the north African affiliate of al-Qaeda.
The same court session on Sunday will examine six other cases, including the "shootings outside the Israeli embassy and a nearby discotheque in Nouakchott on February 1, 2008," as well "individual cases", the source said.
The suspected terrorists have taken part in a spiritual dialogue launched in January at the Nouakchott prison with government-mandated theologians including Mohamed El-Hassen, one of the country's top spiritual leaders.
El-Hassen said that the three Mauritanians held for the murder of the French tourists in 2007 had "proclaimed their repentance" as an outcome of the spiritual dialogue. - Sapa-AFP

Well guess what buddy, this is yet again another doomed to fail prediction and is yet another reason why ATS STAFF should implement a failed doomsday prediction rosette or banner to be plastered over the users avatar.
Please ENOUGH of the DOOMSDAY Threads Already... o.kayyyy.????

Why would they want to make a prophet out of the OP? I bet that somewhere an Illuminati chess master just threw up his carefully crafted plans written in paper in the air in frustration.

Thanks for the info Gold_Bug.
It's not far fetched to suspect that terrorists could have planted dirty bombs in the US. Just look at our open borders.
IMO - there WILL be more attacks on the US.
IMO - it's not a matter of "if" but "when".
All we can do is try to keep catching them before we get hit.
In the content of your OP, you simply stated one theory of many possible scenarios. The title of your thread gives people the impression that the mystery is solved. You could have avoided being bashed if you had used question marks...
TERROR DATE 6/23/2010 CONFIRMED? First Illuminati Warning Found & Decoded?
I have no problem with your title or your OP because, after all, this is a conspiracy website. Also, I did not get the impression you were date setting. However, people need to realize that everything they post may be thrown back in there face. If someone sets a date and nothing happens, then their reputation is gone.

In this slide notice that it says "Prime minister makes statement on the threat" but when operation Blackjack was written gordon brown was Prime Minister.
What do you think?
I am now starting to believe this is a preview of things to come!
