Do the rules differ for foreign students, ie: report earlier to campus than US students?
Ahhhh, didn't they do a dry run last year with all those "band" or "students" coming in and then "scattering" all over the country...We eventually caught all of them, and sent them home...
They must have learned alot then, and are ready to take advantage of the situation...
Nothing to see here...Move along...Move along people...
It's all Bush's fault!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /sarcasm off
Repeat after me, THERE ARE NO AL-QAEDA TERRORISTS IN IRAQ. THERE ARE NO TERRORISTS ANYWHERE. Bush, Cheney, and Rove made them up out of whole cloth. 9/11 never happened. And if it did, the Bush admin did it. Or knew about it. So say all the libs.
Thanks for the ping
The liberal press will try and candy coat this one.
Ah, yes--keep increasing those visa numbers congresscritters. See where it gets us.
The press could say that but the docs were discovered 6 months ago. If GWB wanted to boost election results -- something that was much needed -- he would have leaked the doc finding in late October/early November. Poll results rise and fall but election results are permanent.
They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.

You missed the point of my post. Anyone can threaten us, but that is not the same as someone being a threat to us. I can tell you I'm going to yank your ear, but since I don't know who you really are or where you are located, I am really no threat to you. The Fijans can hatch a diabolical plot to attack San Diego, but they are hardly a plausible threat, and that hardly merits a response from us that includes locking down the country under onerous restrictions.
As well, you missed the fact that I said that ABC is engaged in advance shilling for the Democrats when they launch their very own initiatives to roll over your freedoms in the name of saving you from something, anything. You ain't seen nothing yet.
ABC outed Plan A, which was just a stalking horse.
Their friends are working on Plans B,C and D.
If we leave Iraq with tail between legs, they will follow us home...
If we leave Iraq with tail between legs, they will follow us home...
But But But..
I've been told war in Iraq had nothing to do with the War on Terror....
You took the words rightouttamymouth!!!
IF, IF we believe cells are already here... (which I do)
Why would they need to send the others?
Didn't we just let in a bunch of Saudi students? Did we ever find ALL of the missimg arab students that were destined for CO a few months ago?
for later consumption
Not only are there no terrorists in the US, even if there WERE, now that the Dems are in charge, they have no reason to attack us. It's true -- Ted Kennedy told me so. *snerk*
WOW! The MSM woke the hell up and noticed that Iraq wanted to Attack us?
OMG! I have to go play the Lottery RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It must be because they think that Hillary! is the only person who can save us.
Yet stupid leftist dims like Murtha,Pelosi, Hildabeast and others continue to maintain that fighting in Iraq is not part of the War on Terror.
Often universities have summer sessions that begin in July ( I know our Summer II session does), or special seminar classes that are a week or so long, and usually start late in summer...
Dear me, my astigmatism is really acting up. I thought title was dogs that were attack dogs that were going to be running loose in America killing people. Wow what a nutcase I am today.
It won't affect them at all. Their line will be thus: 'If we weren't in Iraq, the islamofascist nuts would not be bothering us'.
Don't take my word for it though, call Chuck Hagel.
Well yes, Richard, it was called 9/11. And guess what: they will do it again and again, even if we 'redeploy' our troops.
Astounding the ignorance and delusions of the kook liberals. As if we will be free from attacks if we just leave the terrorists alone.
Maybe reality is setting in and they're frightened at the prospect of Hillary as Commander in Chief.
Gee, ABC is reporting that there is al Qaeda in Iraq? I wonder if they cleared this story with Hitlery, Weasley Cluck, How-weird Dean, Bella Lugosi Pelosi, Dingy Harry, et. al., who have been telling us for years that their ain't no connection between Iraq and al Qaeda?
So? The contention is that the US is creating terrorists. From reading the excerpt, it doesn't say this plan predated the US attack on Iraq. The left will say, "I told you so".
Why am I so not surprised that ABC would hire a pitiful, self-imnportant scumbag like Clarke as a "consultant"? Thanks for all your great anti-terror work during the Clinton Administration, Richard.
Terrorists planning on US attack. Hm - Bush's open border policy is making more sense now - NOT!
new AQ tape out
How can this be? The libs/media keep telling us that Iraq has nothing to do with terrorism and fighting over there wouldn't keep us safer here. If we weren't in Iraq, how would we have gotten these docs that tipped off the operation?
I really want to know the TIMEFRAME of these documents. Were these written BEFORE the War took Saddam out?
Why isn't that in the Article?
When were the documents written?
Well, that's essentially true, but it starts from a skewed premise. The U.S. 'creates terrorists' simply by existing and not converting to Islam. Now, we may take actions that are good for terrorist propaganda and recruiting, and those actions may 'make more terrorists'. That's essentially a valid observation. It just misses the point.
Western civilization and Islamic civilization are on a crash course. That friction will continue to create more terrorists, even if America vanished tomorrow. Clearly, if we take action to fight terrorism, it will spawn more terrorism, just as terrorist attacks against us will generate retaliatory strkes. There's no way to avoid that until the underlying issue is settled.
And that issue is that there ain't enough room in this town for the both of us.
Those two groups aren't big enough to get the job done on anything done in multiple cities and on a much bigger scale. Heck even Jack Bauer missed and a lousy .2 KT manpad device blew the heck outta L.A. last week! Four more devices left and now Bauer is having a nervous breakdown! Stay tuned to this BAUER channel at this BAUER time!
Seriously, I think the scenario posed on 24 is highly likely, even probable. IF the border has been used over the last six years (as it has been suspected) to bring in cells and devices they'll be scattered all over the country and while some cells will have specific targets and timetables, others will be given no specific targets but rather orders to stir up as much death and destruction as possible with more conventional means. Those folks won't have handlers, and they won't be skilled in tradecraft. The real cells will have all of that available. Figure at least two guys for logistics to establish safehouses and documents and jobs as needed. One or two for intelligence gathering on the target and then the full team of operators. These cells will have primary, secondary and tertiary targets. They will be self directed AFTER the "GO" code is given.
Here's the kicker: Doing the math based on stats given by the US Border Patrol and ICE based on the numbers of illegals CAUGHT over the last ten years....with 10% of them being from "threat" nations.....there is the possibility of having over SEVENTY THOUSAND active terrorists inside our borders right now, awaiting the "go" code. If they all cut loose at once all over the country can DELTA and SIX handle them alone? I think not.
Of course, that's the REAL purpose for having a Second Amendment in our Constitution to begin with. Think of all the FORMER SEALs and DELTA guys and even Airborne Rangers who have ets'd, or retired. NOW it's becoming a more workable issue. Heck even the patriots who never served but love this country and shoot IDPA or IPSC or just hunt a lot....will be worth their weight in gold. Try not to cut down the liberals who cross your line of fire waving their hands and....bleating....they too have their story....
So? Why would this surprise or shock anyone? If it's a war, they get to attack us, too.
Thanks ExSoldier for the ping.
Excellent post ExS, thanks.
Warner and Coleman have joined the Congressional Traitor Corp!
You can throw in opportunists of all stripes and the "enemy of my enemy" crowd as well.
More I think about it .. maybe that is the intention of putting this story out now .. considering is was known about 6 months ago
A little British lingo there.
Why not learn some Spanish and come in through Mexico - after a quick catch-n-release (with the White House's blessing) they'll be on their way to killing some Infidels!
Or watch the full demonstration of what it would be like, tonight on "24" with Jack Bauer.
It wasn't me!
Right after Labor Day.
Already settled, but thanks anyway.
Beyond that, these were the same colleges that Jon Tester was in charge of when he was in the Montana Legislature.
