But..don't you see...these terrorists were all friendly guys who only turned against us because of our "ill-advised invasion" of Iraq, which "distracted us" from trying to "arrest" Osama bin Laden and "bring him to trial," according to nitwit former anti-Vietnam War punk Richard Clarke.

Why would ABC news tell us? They are too busy helping the other guys.

This buys ABC some harmless "Fair Reporting Points" so that they can come out against Bush tomorrow night with Both Guns Blazing!

"Anyone willing to go to Iraq to fight American troops is probably willing to try to come to the United States," Clarke said."

But we're better prepared this time. We don't have Clarke as "terror czar".

"Warner and Coleman have joined the Congressional Traitor Corp!"

Congress is going to force a withdrawal from Iraq, and give Al Qaeda its first victory in the WOT. The blame belongs squarely on Congress.

Some of the people in the same group did report. Eleven of them split off from the others and didn't show up where others already had done so.

My husband works in transportation and he said that I wouldn't believe how many of his company's truck drivers are foreigners. And most of them don't understand english very well and are hard to communicate with.Just last week there was this never ending saga with this driver about where he was and it turned out he was in Indiana!

"MSU Fall semester didn't begin until September in 2006 [like many schools]. Yet, the alert concerning the "students" came in August, one month before classes even began?

Here's a link to MSU 2006 Fall schedule clearly showing classes didn't begin until September:"

True, but registration is usually at least a week before classes begin.

There was a month long course they were to take that started before the fall classes. It included English.

No way the media said they are not a threat... The media says we should pull out our troops and let them attack us here. The liberals can't wait until we are attacked again... with their hope that a Democrat will be at the helm.. The U.S. is doomed...

"This appears to be the first hard evidence al Qaeda in Iraq was trying to attack us here at home," said ABC News consultant Richard Clarke, former chief counterterrorism adviser on the U.S. National Security Council.

Is this the Richard Clarke who said Condi Rice didn't have a clue what the Taliban was?

Well, I for one, ALSO don't believe there will be any attack on American soil. The initial attack by Al Qaeda operatives on 9-11 was to get the ball rolling. Then the existing political organizations are exploited, and instinctively figure out that they have to find their own place in the overall long-term future of Islam in America, then the multi-layered infiltration slowly takes shape and perfects itself, then Islam as a way of life becomes politically influential, and , well, you can well imagine the rest of the scenario. An attack on American soil by Jihadists would IMMEDIATELY undo ALL that other , distinctly "political" work. And while I acknowledge there are possibly DOZENS of warring factions of radical Islam, I think all of them are canny enough to know they are not going to be allowed to fight their "civil wars" on our soil, either, like they are presumably doing in Iraq/ NO. I am convinced the more serious threat is the political one. Bombs anywhere on American soil would turn the country upside down, and half the mosques would be burned down within 48 hours.

yup. Pretty scary - when a lot of the staff can't even interpret a student's billing account or change an address record. And.... in particular areas, higher ed is starving for enrollment and look at the foreign student as a source of $$$$$. And if that isn't enough, just to complicate matters:

The plan was uncovered in its early stages, and sources say there is no indication that the suspects made it into the United States.


There is nothing to stop them. Send some more saudis on student visas, no sweat.

Amen! The Second Amendment truly is our homeland security system.

Tragically, large population centers (cities packed with liberal gun-grabbing sheeple) where people are the most disarmed, are also the places most vulnerable to attack.

Liberalism is the ideology of treason.

I guess I don't understand the logic. If Al Qaeda operatives are looking to infiltrate our political apparatus, then 9-11 was a catastrophic mistake. The number of Al Qaeda and their sympathizers arrested or deported since 9-11 pretty much destroyed that strategy, if it ever existed.

Incredibly, in spite of 9-11 - and with the help of C.A.I.R. and President Bush's love affair with "the religion of peace" - infiltration is no longer necessary. Islam is going to be as American as apple pie before these idiots are through, and how dare anyone question the loyalties of a politician just because he's Islamic. We're already there today, so...

IMHO, there are two different fields of play: 1) Al Qaeda, the terrorist group, which has no use for political systems and no sympathy for fellow Muslims who may die because of their actions, and 2) domestic groups that are sanitizing Islam through the press, and a political/social system that has been cowered into a fatal kind of moral relativism which dares not call a spade a spade, and expects no accountability from those peacable Muslims who have the grave responsibility of silencing the demonic clerics who preach death and destruction.

It's my belief that these two phenomena are acting independently of each other, but benefiting from each other's actions, just the same. So, color me skeptical of the notion that there won't be any more attacks on American soil. Bin Laden and Zawahiri are not receiving their marching orders from C.A.I.R. and al-Jazeera.

perfect timing for this announcement- right before the state of the union speach.

we should cancel all student visas for one year and ship everyone home.

anyone we find after that we jail in guantanimo.

we need the attention of the LEADERS of these countries...

Still, despite the heightened precautions, some security analysts fear that skilled terrorists — handpicked because of their clean records and because they are carefully trained — could still slip through an academic setting.

They know the liberal institutions will do everything in their power to cover for them. They're both on the same side of this war.

That is also quite an interesting theory.

My brain only gives me this thought process: I want my president to have the authority to do what he can to make sure that there are no more attacks in America. The fact that we keep hearing about attacks being thwarted tends to make me not follow your line of thinking, but who knows? I also don't think the members of the religion of pieces really care where they fight jihad, just as long as infidels die.

Well, MY brain gives me THIS thought process: I too an aware of the numerous thwarted terrorist acts, even though this Administration, in its profound political tone-deafness, has not capitalized on the good job it is doing in thwarting them. If it were me, and I DID have something substantive to crow about, I would have set up a separate publicity machine JUST to keep the American people abreast of what the various LE agencies were doing, just as I would be sure the American people were informed of "all the good things that were happening in Iraq". This kind of PR seems to be permanently on the back burner, with the heat turned off. Bear in mind, though, that virtually ALL of the successes in apprehending , deporting, and/or jailing these Jihadist types have found the plotters in some very embryonic
"planning stage" which may or may not have eventually led to an attack of ANY consequence: we have not caught anyone with their hand IN the cookie jar, but a lot of people whose mouths are watering looking at the cookies.
As you put it, "I want my President to have the authority to do what he can to make sure that there are no more attacks on America." Well, so do I, and even though as I said we are not given many details about the progress of plans for our destruction, I can see that the Administration has done SOMETHING to thwart attacks. ALL THE MORE REASON why the Islamic political sphere is widening its influence here: the "good cop/bad cop" game that CAIR is playing, and the election of people like Ellison, is what will do us in: this President has been so busy kowtowing to the "Good Muslims" here and elsewhere, assuring them that HE believes Islam is a religon of Peace, that he has embraced the Islamic influence, even WELCOMED it, EVERYWHERE, including the MILITARY. I DON'T welcome it, because I see a dangerous trend developing : the one that has turned Europe upside down for several years now. This is a trend that HAS to be arrested, stopped, or reversed, or in 50 years we ourselves will be marginalized in our own country. Things have generally gone so badly for this Administration because of its fatuous "uniter-not-divider" ethos emanating directly down from the head and heart of the Commander-in-Chief. The Democrats have NEVER been interested in being united with the other side: Islamic Jihadists ALSO see postures like that to be signs of weakness and exploit them mercilessly, just like the Dems. But it is that impossible piety that Bush has, that has paved the way now for the very real possibility that Hillary Clinton will be the next President.

Considering the up and down success rate of the administration...I'd rather see the info out there on the table and more state/local authorities on the watch. Count up the number of foreign students in the US today...tens of thousands. The "bright" boys at the top are likely looking at the obvious group middle-eastern types...but if you were Ossama, you might want to get some of your Pacific hencemen into the act and avoid obvious detection.

Lets face it...they are doing this the hard way. We could bring 500 of these "Jihad Joes" into Mexico and simply walk this group across the border...which we know isn't being adequately protected. Same story for Canada.

Easily. And our government does not care about that -- until our borders are closed, there will not even be a start to protecting this country. I guess they are waiting for another 9/11 to happen, or worse, so the pols will have a "reason" to thwart the illegal vote and the globalist agenda...
