Al Qaeda Targeting U.S. Infrastructure for Digital 9/11
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 24, 2014 | Bill Gertz

ASPEN, Colo.—Al Qaeda, nation states, and criminals are preparing for major cyber attacks against U.S. infrastructure that could be comparable to the devastating September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, a senior Justice Department official said on Thursday.

“We’re in a pre-9/11 moment, in some respects, with cyber,” said John Carlin, assistant attorney general for national security in the Justice Department.

Translation from DC-ese: "We're going to orchestrate an attack, then blame the Suuuuuuper Baaaaad Terrorists. And then you'll beg us for everything, you'll pass insane laws and budgets and you'll throw all your liberties away --you'll be CHEERING the MRAPs when they rumble down Mainstreet…" It will be an "emergency" the same way F&F was. The same way the border was.

When the Russians informed DH”S” and DO”J” that
the Boston atrocity was coming ... they did nothing
except allow the terrorist in without a passport.

Americans no longer believe an EXEMPT
pro-Hamas, pro-”rebel”, pro-alQaeda government which
has declared WAR ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

More attacks of all varieties will be launched by terrorists. It is just a matter of time. They should have lots of boots on the ground given the porous border.

True. It is not a matter of if, but when another attack does take place.

I can see why many Americans have been buying guns in the last few years.

One may never have enough guns, ammunition or range time.

Since military and government systems are hardened, it will affect civilian communications most. An excellent “never let a crisis go to waste” opportunity for the regime to impose martial law. Pick your targets now- those in your locality who will be GIVING THE ORDERS.

The Porn, Kittens, and ecommerce must flow lest the peasents become unruly.

Mobilize everyone, even the Ag Department SWAT teams

And this may be a terrible thing to say but if it's going to happen, let it be soon. On Obama's watch. If we get a Repub in there and it happens, he'll get blamed even tho Obama let them walk right over the border.

Then if there’s a Cyber Attack the peasents will without a doubt (finally) become unruly.

They're still trying to build a logic bomb that will go off.

Obama - “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” - even against the American people.
