Students, and foreign students especially, are supposed to show up a week or several weeks in advance of classes for orientations and such.
Traitors like these are satisfied if their treason harms President Bush and the US...they don't need anything else to feed their BDS!
Oh, I remember that story. There was a lot about that story that didn't make sense.
There's also an enrollment deadline, usually a couple weeks before classes. (I'm not sure how the foreign student registrations works, but it seems as if safeguards were in place, and worked as designed) It's most probable they were red flagged during registration.
OH OH NOT GOOD
RE: #76. Wouldn't it be a little strange to get busted in August 2006, for not showing up for your college course, which, by the way, doesn't even START until September 6!?!
Some things here don't add up.
Perfect description of the way the moonbats think!!
See my #104 for a theory.
Hillary to Mark Halprin to the publc.
Not exactly Tinkers to Evers to Chance.
BOY Iraqi terrorists must be tick off that team didn't win
The only problem there is that it's not just the liberal mind that works in. The overwhelming majority of jihadist propaganda runs directly down that line, as well.
One of the most fascinating aspects of al-Qa'ida is it's ability to mutate and adapt. In this regard, they may well be incorporating the words of American left wingers, as they find that subverting propaganda already in use is very effective.
So, true or not, your "logical progression" arguement is used not only by liberals, but by terrorist recruiters.
"This outta get the conspiracy moonbats tweaking, coming just before SOTU."
Ah! But "24" is on tonight. ;)
ABC = Spies and Saboteurs
When are we going to see TREASON TRIALS?
Wonder if any 18-wheelers will be used in tonite's 24.
And of course 9-11 was a direct result of Bush getting elected (or stealing the election)!
...or the left will say, "See, if we weren't in Iraq, these people would mean us no harm."
You ought to b charged with TREASON.
Well, we know whose fault this is. If we'd just sat down and talked with them, we could have found out what they wanted, bargained a little, and everyone would be happy. (From dem handbook...They really believe this.)Forget that they murdered more than 3000 Americans, etc. Just give them what they want. They don't care who gets killed as long as it's not themselves or anyone they mix with at cocktail parties. As long as they can continue their upscale lifestyle, the rest of us should sit down and shut up.
Not strange --- those missing "students" were widely publicized. Our guys lost track of them and that was worrisome to say the least.
Please, teach me how, oh master, for I do not have the patience on my own!
Here's my substantive response (and I even know what that word you used means!)
While I realize we have lost some freedoms, ex: scrutiny at airports and submitting to the tactics of the NSA, I believe that the threat we face from terrorists is real, and I want my president do do all that can be done. The murder of nearly 3000 innocents on 9/11 convinced me that the threat is real, even though our nation missed the threats in several previous attacks on our nation and our interests abroad.
If I'm just being a chicken little, and all my freedoms are slowly being denied, guess I'll see you in the resettlement camp. (I'll be the short, round, gray-haired female with the flower in my lapel.)
You are, of course, correct. But when it comes to the War on Terror - I lump the terrorists and the libs together.
Of course they can slip through in an academic setting. Most US colleges actively recruit "students" from countries that sponsor terrorism, and many academics hate the USA and think that we got what we deserved.
Unfortunately the media will cover this once then hide it. Can't let the American public regain confidence in GW Bush!
"I wonder if this is why we are seeing a surge in the number of Muslims complaining about stereotyping? Sorta laying the ground work to help get these people into the country by 'shaming' the U.S. so that less common sense is used by the transportation industry."
truthluva has got it absolutely right!!!!!
Yes, that makes sense
I'm stunned...I didn't think Iraq had terrorists or any Al-Queda members for that matter. Wow. And to think they'd plan an attack on America....why, why do they want to hurt us?</sarc>
You can say that again. It's almost like a work of art to them. The D.C. sniper was, in some ways, the essence of the kind of fear a terrorist attack is intended to generate. The alphabets have gone rather unappreciated in the past few years, shutting down terror cells here and across the world.
I'm just basing that from my own college experience. Trying to get a class after registration closes is a real pita, waiting lists, signatures from profs and department heads, plus the administration paperwork. It has to be extra hard for a foreign student to go through that process, or maybe not. Nevertheless, you are registered for classes several weeks, if not months in advance. I usually registered in spring before the finals.
That's not what the article said, though. The article said the red flag came up when they failed to report to classes. What type of classes, though? Since the article didn't specifically say orientation classes, the reader is to assume they are referring to "class-CLASS," which didn't start until September 6.
I'm not saying I don't agree with your theory, only that in order for it to be true, the article would have been written differently, one would think, anyway.
No, they will spin it that Bush is leaking this on purpose to make people "fear" again so that they will be more supportive.
Mark my words.
"University officials must report international students who fail to arrive on campus or miss class regularly."
I don't know the arrival dates for foreign students, do they have to report to an 'advisor' prior to classes starting? I'd think they'd want to give them all those touchy-feely classes prior to the sememster starting. If they 'miss class regularly', than, that's a different situation.
But near the end, the article states:
"The plan was uncovered in its early stages, and sources say there is no indication that the suspects made it into the United States
So, it appears as if they missed their reporting to school date.
In August, the FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement alerted intelligence agencies and state and local law enforcement about 11 Egyptian students who had failed to report to their classes at Montana State University.
I wonder if this is just bad reporting. They never made it to the US, but, they have to report to the adminstative people prior to classes starting.
The good news is that AQ is mired in static patterns of behavior. The bad news is that we seem to be also.
You think cold weather changes class schedules?
I am wondering, yes.
Probably bad reporting. The residence hall didn't even open until Sept. 3, 2006, yet the article speaks as if loads of action was happening in August when, in reality, most of the action would be happening in September.
Maybe the libs will begin watching "24" more closely now and believe that "IT" could happen here.
I posted the link to MSU Fall schedule here:
Classes always begin in Sept at that school.
For fair weather terrorists, it sure does. When my kid was in Iraq, they could 'predict' attacks based on the weather. If it was hot, or rainy, or sandstorms, or cold, or prayer time (I know, not weather related, but you get the drift), the attacks plummeted. So, if it was snowing in September in Montana, I'm sure they the terrorists had weather related 'issues'. :)
"One of the most fascinating aspects of al-Qa'ida is it's ability to mutate and adapt."
(Hey, just helping along the mutation process!)
Thanks. There's one theory gone to h.
