Senators Warned of Terrorist Attack on U.S. by July

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/03/us/politics/03intel.html
America’s top intelligence official told lawmakers on Tuesday that Al Qaeda and its affiliates had made it a high priority to attempt a large-scale attack on American soil within the next six months.
The assessment by Dennis C. Blair, the director of national intelligence, was much starker than his view last year, when he emphasized the considerable progress in the campaign to debilitate Al Qaeda and said that the global economic meltdown, rather than the prospect of a major terrorist attack, was the “primary near-term security concern of the United States.”
At Tuesday’s hearing, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California and chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, asked Mr. Blair to assess the possibility of an attempted attack in the United States in the next three to six months.
He replied, “The priority is certain, I would say”

  • Considering Obama has all of the intelligence NOW, it's obvious that he'll be able to single-handedly thwart any and all attacks on US soil, because, well, he's OBAMA!!! LOL! :o)

  • OK raise your hand who really thought they would stop? The have been fighting for thousand of years in their own countries. What the hell is any administration supposed to do? Lock everyone up that might be a threat to our society? Can you say Communism? Whats funny is the ones who are all for tightening things up and stepping all over civil liberties to protect the country also accuse the current administration of leading us down a path to Socialism. Fact is both sides of the political divide, if the American people let them, are leaning towards Socialism just in different ways.

  • Personally I think a couple of well placed strikes are in order. Right now they have no reason to fear us and they should. Man, I wish I could put my husband in charge for a couple of days. I've seen him operate and they would be saying, "yes sir" and "no sir" and "we're sorry for keeping you scared to death ma'am." Oh well, he it getting closer and closer to the top of the food chain.
