Daniel Patrick Boyd
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|Daniel Patrick Boyd|
|Residence||Johnston County, North Carolina|
|Occupation||drywall installation contractor|
|Known for||alledged leader of group charged with supporting terrorism|
|Children||Dylan “Mohammed” Boyd, Zakariya Boyd, Noah Boyd, Maryum Boyd|
Daniel Patrick Boyd (born 1970, also known as Saifullah is an American, who as a teenager waged USA backed Jihad against the Soviets and Afghan communists, and in July 2009 was accused of leading a jihadist terrorist cell in North Carolina.
In 1989, Boyd traveled to Pakistan, trained with mujahideen and fought against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan,  and their local communist puppets. He took the Muslim name Saifullah (“Sword of God”).
In June 1991, Boyd and his brother Charles (also a Muslim convert, working as an engineer in Pakistan) were accused of robbing a branch of United Bank in a Peshawar suburb. It was also alleged that they carried identification cards indicating membership in Hezb-e-Islami. In September 1991, a special Islamic court sentenced the brothers to have their right hands and left feet amputated, serve prison terms and pay fines. As the sentence was handed down, Daniel Boyd shouted, “This isn’t an Islamic court. It’s a court of infidels!” After their convictions, they worked in the jail factory, making carpets and chairs. In October 1991, an appeals court tossed out the ruling. He maintained his innocence at the time and that it was all a malicious set up.
Mr. Boyd’s history, as sketched out in the indictment, illustrates how complicated the American government’s relationship has been with Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan over time. Two decades ago, Mr. Boyd was reportedly a member of an Afghan-led faction lead by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, founder of Hezb-e-Islami that was then allied with the United States in the struggle against the Soviet-backed government. The Reagan Doctrine has been credited with bringing down the Soviet State, famously called the communist Evil Empire by President Reagan, but the Mujaheddeen have always claimed that it was by the Help that God gave to their courageous Jihad.
Ronald Regan said while introducing the Afghan Mujahideen leaders to media on the White house lawns (1985): “These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers.”
Boyd was arrested by Federal agents along with seven men in North Carolina on 27 July 2009. They were charged with plotting to wage “violent jihad” outside the United States. Boyd was accused of recruiting six men, including two of his sons, to take part in a conspiracy “to advance violent jihad, including supporting and participating in terrorist activities abroad and committing acts of murder, kidnapping or maiming persons abroad.”
According to the indictment, members of the group practiced military tactics and the use of weapons in rural North Carolina, and traveled to Gaza, Israel, Jordan and Kosovo hoping “to engage in violent jihad.”
A July 30, 2009 CBS news headline about Daniel Boyd is entitled “The Nicest Terrorist I Ever Met,” with the subtitle: “Friends, Colleagues and Pakistani Jailers Describe N. Carolina Terror Suspect as Kind, Devoted Muslim.”

well, at other times it is totally negative, menacing, fear-mongering, without any iota of positive indications for Mr. Boyd.
Reminds me of this quote:
“People using CIA and FBI computers have edited
entries in the online encyclopedia Wikipedia on topics
including the Iraq war and the Guantanamo prison, according to a new tracing program.The changes may violate Wikipedia’s conflict-of-interest guidelines, a spokeswoman for the site said on Thursday. The program, WikiScanner, was developed by Virgil Griffith of the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico and posted this month on a Web site that was quickly overwhelmed with searches. The program allows users to track the source of computers used to make changes to the popular Internet encyclopedia where anyone can submit and edit entries. WikiScanner revealed that CIA computers were used to edit an entry on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.”
Some even claim that FOX News etc is in on the “revisionist” action, but that’s another story for another time.
Why they didn’t mention the NSA, sure beats me?
Hmm,,, but of course Wikipedia is edited by IP’s originating from ‘xxxxx’ lately.
Remember George Orwell’s iconic 1984, and Animal Farm, and that slogan : “He who controls the present, controls the past,” or was it the past,,, or the present,,, or something about the future ,,, oh well,,, something like that.
Lest we not forget:
And moreover, the fruit of the Reagan Doctrine against the Evil Empire of international communism: the stinger.
