WASHINGTON -- As millions converged on Washington last year to witness the inauguration of President Barack Obama, security officials were concerned that among them were extremists traveling from Somalia to set off explosives as Obama took the oath of office.

A few months later, they worried about veterans coming home. Makes sense to me/s

It was nice of them to warn the public.

If this is true, the blatant disregard for public safety was astounding.

The real terrorist was taking the oath.

Why interfere with the greatest force for the destruction of the USA ever?

I’ve said it before.

Not only does Obama hate conservatives, he hates his own supporters.

traveling from Somalia to set off explosives as Obama took the oath of office

Oh who believes this stuff? Looks more like a pathetic move to scare up some sympathy for the One. Who needs to travel *from* Somalia anyway? Not like there's any shortage already in country. See Lewistan Maine.

I think he truly has a hatred for what he perceives this nation to have been and still be.

In his quest to make it better, he’s going to destroy it.

Woe unto anyone who gets in his way, friend or foe.

He’s not above using anyone to prop himself up, so I can see why you said what you did.

I agree. I think on the ‘inside’ they were more concerned with the reaction of US citizens. However wrongly so.

Well it may be trumped up, for that purpose, but it really does beg the question why Mr. Brave Heart would expose his wife and daughters to a very iffy situation.

It’s one thing to be brave. It’s another to be brave and reckless with your family’s safety.

Thinking people will consider this a transparent paradox.

If it’s a ploy it stinks. If it’s true it stinks. Dumb move...

Agreed. Poll numbers tanking. It’s like a global warming story, “fears” “worried”.

Big Media throwing up their usual cover.

worked around the clock trying to figure out whether the threat was real and what, if anything, should be done

That would be a tough decision - the "what, if anything" part.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahaha! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

The incoming administration took the threat so seriously, the New York Times reported, that contingency plans were drawn up in case the incoming government and president were killed.

I thought we always had contingency plans drawn up in case a President were killed.

Talk about drama queens.

This is an absolutely ridiculous ploy by Obama CYAers.

Until this “report”, the meme was that the world could not wait until Bush was out and Obama was in. Why would even Al Queda want to mess with that transfer of power and control?

The existing plans probably did not include the potential for nationwide race riots.

Apparently, the best “cover” for terrorists is to have their Dads visit with the CIA and discuss their ties to radical Islam and AQ. Nothing is done when this happens.

Frankly, there isn’t a damn bit of difference between his thoughts on America and the thoughts of Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, and assorted other America haters.

The danger to America is right here, right now. It’s Obamao and his cronies seeking to destroy all that made this country a beacon of hope for millions around the world.

My thoughts exactly. They allowed millions people to gather in a relatively small area when there was a “High” threat level? Seems irresponsible of the Administration to me. Maybe they were only “concerned” that there “may” be some Islamic Somalian in the Mall with a suicide belt. Wonder who had the final word on not reporting this to the Public? Bush or Obama?

A terrorist attack on an Inauguration? Sounds like a tempting target for any mass-murdering wacko. Besides, wasn't that the scenario Tom Clancy used to catapult his Jack Ryan character to the Presidency in Debt of Honor or Executive Orders?

If contingency plans were ever made at that point, President Bush can take the credit for them. He was still the President. In fact since Obama would not have had the chance to take the Oath of Office, I think that the highest person in the chain of command in Bush’s administration that had lived through that attack would have become President and would have kept the power in the time of national emergency.

Or even an Al-CIA-da diversion.

The Bush Administration is the one that let a couple million people in a small area, not the Obama Administration. I don’t believe this story, and if they are trying to take credit for blocking a terrorist attack they must think we are really dumb, because Bush/Cheney still held the keys to the kingdom.

What total malarkey! Why wait a year to “tell” the public? I notice they went right ahead with the coronation last year which took DC weeks to clear away. Didn’t seem to be such a major concern then.

Nothing but White House leaked spin to take the heat off the smoking butt terorist story. This, so they can say “see, we get hundreds of reports, we can’t investigate them all, and most don’t amount to anything.” Of course, the sheeple will buy it.

Another spin they take is to always blame the “evil” agencies (CIA, FBI, etc.) while sparing the “good agencies” (TSA, Commerce, etc.).

Would it not be more proper to say that THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT failed to stop the Christmas 2009 attack. Just like it was THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT that failed to stop 9-11? That would include all federal agencies, and a prudent analysis could identify all the weak areas (State department, for example, the “Gorelick Wall”, Obama’s directives, etc.).
