Not sure if this was posted but here it is. We know/knew other countries were directly/indirectly helping the terrorist groups to defend/protect themselves from US drone attacks but some of the tactics are pretty slick IMO.

The document includes advice such as "hide under thick trees" (believed to be bin Laden's contribution), and instructions for setting up a "fake gathering" using dolls to "mislead the enemy".

Found by the Associated Press in a building in Timbuktu, the ancient city occupied by Islamists last year, the document is believed to have been abandoned as extremists fled a French military intervention last month. It is a Xeroxed copy of a tipsheet authored by a Yemeni extremist that has been published on some jihadi forums, but that has made little appearance in English.

They speak of electronic jamming through the use of 'the ordinary water-lifting dynamo fitted with a 30 meter piece of copper pipe'.

Does anyone know what they refer to with the 'ordinary water-lifting dynamo'?

I find it disturbingly ironic, that u.s. citizens will be studying al-Qaida's tips to protect themselves from their own government's drones.

Or they are hoping Americans are stupid enough to think a tree is cover from flir.

Trojan horse comes to mind those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
