Iran-Hezb'allah: 'They Already Hit the Homeland 10 Years Ago'

At the mid-March 2012 congressional hearings on the "Iran-Hezb'allah Threat to the Homeland," chaired by Representative Peter King, top officials from the DEA, the FBI, and the New York City Police Department, as well as senior scholars addressed the alarming capability and motivation of this Axis of Jihad to strike inside the U.S. Critical and timely, this was the latest in a series of hearings that Rep. King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has held to focus attention on the deadly threat to America's national security from the forces of Islamic jihad and sharia. There was an unmentioned elephant in the room this time, though, and that was 9/11--when the terror alliance of al-Qaeda, Iran, and Hezb'allah joined forces to hit the homeland for the first time ten and a half years ago.

Perhaps taking their cue from the apparently oblivious director of National Intelligence, Gen. James Clapper, the panel of witnesses spoke of Iranian willingness to attack the U.S. homeland in terms of some kind of hypothetical developing threat. Indeed, Gen. Clapper told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in late January 2012 "that some Iranian officials -- probably including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei -- have changed their calculus and are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime."

10½ years ago? 9-11? What about the 1993 WTC bombings? I'd bet there were probably little-known/noticed instances of muslim/islamic terrorist attacks before that, too.
