Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

American hacker 'The Raptor' claims to have taken down Al Qaeda based websites

Washington - An American hacker, who has named himself 'The Raptor', has claimed that he is responsible for taking down various online sites used by Al Qaeda sympathizers.

He has described himself as a patriot working on behalf of the U.S. troops serving overseas, and said that he is fighting his own war against terror by hacking Al Qaeda related websites.

The Raptor claims to be behind last month's attack on Al Qaeda's main online forum, Shamukh Islamic Network, and a handful of other sites and forums, including Ansar al-Mujahideen, where jihadists

congregate online to issue threats and encourage one another to acts of terror.

These terror websites went down on March 22, and most of them remained dark for nearly two weeks, The Fox News reports.

The Raptor, who is guarded about revealing his true identity, has made his agenda quite clear.

"Our kids keep getting killed because jihadists make better bombs than they do cupcakes. Anything I can do to disrupt and demoralize the enemy is worthwhile and on the table. Some say I and others like

me are Crusaders; that we hate Islam or desire to offend Allah," The Raptor said through his tweets..

"That is absolutely and fundamentally wrong. Some of my best friends are Muslims, and I love them. They don't wish me harm, and I would give my life to defend them. This has only to do with violent

criminals who cloak themselves in the wool of a good and peaceful religion to bring death and destruction to the world," he added.
