I heard about it and may have posted on it here on Free Republic
that we havent heard about the conclusion before now is BIT troublesome given how easy it was for many of us to determined what happened
vandals dont often strike at various types of targets at the same location..
doing so indicates this wasnt random hooliganism
severing fiber optic cables is SORT of indicative of real serious planning...
That business about the cables is unsettling. Some reports (such as USA Today referencing CBS News indicate the fiber optic cables were “severed underground”. Possibly this is just bad reporting, but it would seem to me that even with some sort of above ground marking, if those cables were buried a couple feet down, severing them with rifle fire would be fairly difficult, especially if the shooters were not at a fairly steep angle above the cables. Am I wrong? Or maybe the cables were hit just as they went underground?
As far as the larger picture goes, this Jon Wellinghoff is a lib weenie enviro-whacko lawywer, and even HE sees the threat. I’ll bet neither Obambi nor any of his top advisers have ever experienced as an ordinary citizen a prolonged (weeks) power outage in a large area where most heating is electric, and temps are dropping to near zero or colder at night.
Of course, who wants to bother with effectively protecting America, when there is so much change to yet accomplish?
