They're Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere!

Al Qaeda Cell in the U.S. Or On Its Way, According to New Intel
Share July 10, 2007 6:30 PM

Brian Ross Reports:

Senior U.S. intelligence officials tell ABC News new intelligence suggests a small al Qaeda cell is on its way to the United States, or may already be here.

The White House has convened an urgent multi-agency meeting for Thursday afternoon to deal with the new threat.

Top intelligence and law enforcement officials have been told to assemble in the Situation Room to report on:

--what steps can be taken to minimize or counter the threat,

--and what steps are being taken to harden security for government buildings and personnel.

"It suggests they have information that the cell or cells coming this direction want to attack a government facility," Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent and ABC News consultant, said.

Law enforcement officials say the recent failed attacks in London have provided important new clues about possible tactics.

=======================

OK, now if this is so damned IMPORTANT, WHY are we waiting 'til Thursday afternoon for the meeting?

Also, the meeting is to determine "What steps are being taken to minimize or counter the threat AND steps to harden security.
Second annoying question, would it not have been reasonable to have bantered these questions around the ol' Situation Room BEFORE there is a heightened threat to insure all the gaps were noted and covered?

Last Question, could this just be the monthly "boogieman alert" that comes out EVERY TIME the President's Poll numbers reach new lows?

Um, DUH!

I can guarantee you that there are lots of groups in the states claiming to be part of the "official" group. That's the nature of terrorism, ANYONE can be a terrorist. I could be part of Al Qaeda, you could be, the admin could be, Kamil could be, anyone.

What, no entrance exam nor ID card? That is just wrong!

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

This is Bush's FUCKING war on terror. He has left the terrorists alone in Afghanistan and gone after Iraq. Thanks to this Bastard we call our president Al Qaeda is back, more organized, stronger then ever, and we WILL get attacked again. Very effective war he is running, one that let's the terrorists sleep and rest while he goes off in another direction. This son of a fucking bitch and bastard has made us more unsafe. God how I wish one of his very close relatives are the victims instead of some innocent American off the street. How great this world would have been if his SKANK mother would have aborted him. He is AS BAD AS Hitler, no doubt. Actually WORSE than Hitler as Hitler at least loved his country
