If they could REALLY do that, why don't they just focus, say, on a narrow 700 mile strip between Mexico and the US?

... and stay the hell there too.

Fox also just reported the guy they nailed trying to hit resturaunts in the Ft. Hood area? He had pressure cookers and nails in his possession?

Curiouser, and curiouser...

The trillion dollar Dept. of Homeland Security was outsmarted by one or two scruffy evildoers armed with $20 cook pots.

Boston's big mistake was failing to post signs declaring the area as a bomb free zone.

The Times Square Bomber used a pressure cooker device.

So Bloomberg and his ilk have their enforcement agencies looking for anti-Obamacare Tea Party suspects.

Public Service Reminder :

Why do people keep posting this false BO quote?
It's not what is in the book, at best it's a conflated quote and not particularly accurate as to exactly what was written.
For instance, BO only says "immigrants" and never says "Muslims".
People who keep posting this false BO quote make us conservatives look like the right-wing nutjobs that the MSM and liberals try to make us into.
Thanks

The actual quote from the book is from page 261 and is as follows:
"Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Someone should really go find that DHS parking lot where 1000 APC's are parked and get a picture. A 1000+ APC's would probably take up the space of a small midwestern town and that wouldn't be a target rich environment or anything.

Here's some more from Wiki and Google:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Improvised_explosive_device

Nepal

IEDs were also widely used in the 10-years long civil war of the Maoists in Nepal, ranging from those bought from illicit groups in India and China, to self-made devices. Typically used devices were pressure-cooker bombs, socket bombs, pipe bombs, bucket bombs, etc. The devices were used more for the act of terrorizing the urban population rather than for fatal causes, placed in front of governmental offices, street corners or road sides. Mainly, the home-made IEDs were responsible for destruction of majority of structures targeted by the Maoists and assisted greatly in spreading terror among the public.

The ONLY reason Ayers, Dohrn, etc, are so popular with liberals today is that they were ANTI-GOVT TERRORISTS. But if anyone on the right has even the slightest and mildest criticism of the govt, liberals want them arrested for being anti-govt terrorists.

Which dem will be the first to introduce legislation to have background checks and a ten day waiting period before you can buy a pressure cooker? And pressure cookers should only be sold by ATF licensed dealers and no internet sales.

There have to be numerous security cameras in the area which have given the police some idea of who they are looking for. It now appears that they have narrowed this down to devices planted in a garbage can. That has to be caught on video somewhere. And if it has been, the sooner the video is released the more likely it will tweak the memory of others who were in the area at the time.

They always hold something back.

In the case of the Unabomber, it was the fact that the boxes that held the explosive device were intricately carved...They might have caught him a lot sooner had that been made public.

"BO only says "immigrants" and never says "Muslims"."

You can't even read the quote you post!

"Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern..."

"...my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality... They {Arab and Pakistani Americans} have been reminded... they {Arab and Pakistani Americans} need specific reassurances... and that I will stand with them {Arab and Pakistani Americans}."

And those who know the full story of the Emperor worshiping Japanese in America at the time of Pearl Harbor would understand the internment policy of that era. But I won't hijack this thread for that discussion. For any reader who wants a concise summary, pickup Michele Malkin's "In Defense of Internment."

If Obama was around 70 years ago, of course he would have tried to keep all Emperor worshiping Shinto Japanese free - how better to attack the US.

I think the bombs didn’t trigger because of the metal trash cans, and they sent Mohammed (whatever his name is) to check it out. He moved #2, and #1 went ka-boom right after he repositioned it.

I presume the cell phone calls came from Logan and his team leaders are long gone.

Sorry FRiend I read the quotes as identical. One simply has more words.

And that's why the leftists have ammo to mock conservatives and "right wingers".
I always hear so-called conservatives say "we argue with facts while the left argues with emotion".
Quoting false quotes because "you just know it to be true" is doing the same thing that leftists do.
So have fun with that.

Then read it again!

If you can't see the distinction Hussein is making by saying "not all my conversations in immigrant communities" and then "...my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality..." with all the following "they{s}" and "them{s}" referring to the later... you have a serious problem knowing even what a fact is.

"Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern..."

"...my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality... They {Arab and Pakistani Americans} have been reminded... they {Arab and Pakistani Americans} need specific reassurances... and that I will stand with them {Arab and Pakistani Americans}.serious problem.

He is speaking about immigrants in general in the 1st part but only Arabs & Pakistanis in the 2nd.
