Posted on 06/03/2009 1:44:25 PM PDT by pissant
U.S. counterterrorism officials have authenticated a video by an al Qaeda recruiter threatening to smuggle a biological weapon into the United States via tunnels under the Mexico border, the latest sign of the terrorist group's determination to stage another mass-casualty attack on the U.S. homeland.
The video aired earlier this year as a recruitment tool makes clear that al Qaeda is looking to exploit weaknesses in U.S. border security and also is willing to ally itself with white militia groups or other anti-government entities interested in carrying out an attack inside the United States, according to counterterrorism officials interviewed by The Washington Times.
The officials, who spoke only on the condition they not be named because of the sensitive nature of their work, stressed that there is no credible information that al Qaeda has acquired the capabilities to carry out a mass biological attack although its members have clearly sought the expertise.

Drug Lords versus Al Qaeda... who wins?
don’t matter.. we lose.
My concern is a mass poisoning with something like ricin by way of a food processing plant.
Foreign and domestic enemy ping!
Ya, it really takes a lot of “smarts” to pull off a bio-attack, hell, we mail out samples of all kinds of stuff based off letter-head alone .... TICK TOCK
Maybe we all need to start buying from the Amish.
depends on who gets all those machine guns from the US(sarc)
It is just a matter of time before AlQuida mounts another 9-11 sized attack on the US homeland. Whether it is using bio weapons, a dirty bomb or all too soon a nuclear weapon, a mass casualty attack has been made inevitable by the current occupant of the White House. I expect home grown terrorists will start with the IED skills learned in Iraq, escalate to large coordinated attacks on shopping malls, schools and hospitals and culminate by taking out an American city with a nuke. Of course Obama will negotiate and eventually capitulate to the terrorists.
So Al Qaeda hopes to piggy-back on the infrastructure of a decades-long unopposed invasion, and opposition to that invasion is the thing that makes the MINUTEMEN de-facto terrorists...?
By logic then, were the Minutemen to instead HELP Al Qaeda into the country, would they then instead become HEROS...?
My head hurts....
Obuma would love it.....That way he can negotiate with the Muslims and blame the victims.
Who needs tunnels? Just hide it inside a truckload of pot.
“Drug Lords versus Al Qaeda... who wins?”
I think their on the same team.
Or inside a couple of anchor baby moms.
I am not aware of any “white militia” groups that would be party to a mass attack against the US population. Against politicians might be another story, although I have no knowledge of that either.
I guess we’d better set up some more watering stations so the terrorists don’t get too thirsty along the way(?)
This idea is in a book a read

Good book unless you’ve worked the border.
... anyone who has worked the border knows it wouldn’t be difficult to sneak practically anything over the border.
