Posted on 09/27/2001 12:20:15 AM PDT by Brian Allen
After the World Trade Center was bombed by Islamic fundamentalists in 1993, the country quickly chalked it up to a zany one-time attack and five minutes later decided we were all safe again. We weren't. We aren't now. They will strike again. Perhaps they will wait another eight years. But perhaps not.
The enemy is in this country right now. And any terrorists who are not already here are free to immigrate. The government has been doing an excellent job rounding up suspects from the last two attacks. But what about the next attack? We thought there was only one murderous Islamic cell in America the last time, too.
Congress has authority to pass a law tomorrow requiring aliens from suspect countries to leave. As far as the Constitution is concerned, aliens, which is to say non-citizens, are here at this country's pleasure. They have no constitutional right to be here.
Congress has it within its power to prevent the next attack, but it won't. When the Sears Tower is attacked, the president is assassinated, St. Patrick's Cathedral is vaporized, anthrax is released in the subway systems or Disneyland is nuked, remember: Congress could have stopped it, but didn't.
Pious invocations of the Japanese internment are absurd. For one thing, those were U.S. citizens. Citizens can't be deported. So far -- thank God -- almost all the mass murderers of Americans have been aliens.
But even more blindingly obvious: There was no evidence that the attack on Pearl Harbor was staged by Japanese saboteurs living in California. The Japanese internment was a pure land grab implemented by liberal politicians -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt and California Gov. Earl Warren (later the namesake of the infamous Warren Court). The internment was vigorously opposed by J. Edgar Hoover.
This time, the very nature of the enemy is that they have infiltrated this country and pass themselves off as law-abiding, quiet immigrants. The entire modus operandi of this enemy is to smuggle mass murderers to our shores.
But the country refuses to respond rationally. Rather, Congress is busily contemplating a series of "anti-terrorism" measures most notable for their utter irrelevance to the threat. What precisely would a national ID card accomplish? The hijackers were in this country legally! A few may have overstayed their visas by a few days -- a minor bureaucratic oversight that they surely would have remedied had they not been about to commit suicide in a monstrous attack.
Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., has bravely proposed that we take the aggressive step of asking aliens in the country to register periodically with the government so we know where they are. That's already the law in Germany. Several of the hijackers in this attack lived in Hamburg; they obediently complied. The mastermind of the most vicious terrorist attack in the history of the world, Mohammed Atta, was in Florida on a "vocational status" visa (in order to attend flight school). Let's say Atta had registered. Now what, Joe?
As the entire country has been repeatedly lectured, most Muslims are amazingly peaceful, deeply religious, wouldn't hurt a fly. Indeed, endless invocations of the pacific nature of most Muslims is the only free speech it is safe to engage in these days.
This is a preposterous irrelevancy. Fine, we get it. The New York Times can rest assured that every last American has now heard the news that not all Muslims are terrorists. That's not the point. Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims -- at least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America that leaves 7,000 people dead in under two hours.
How are we to distinguish the peaceful Muslims from the fanatical, homicidal Muslims about to murder thousands of our fellow citizens? Are the good Muslims the ones who live quiet lives, pray a lot and obey the law? So did the architects of Bloody Tuesday's mass murder. Are the peaceful Muslims the ones who loudly proclaim their hatred of Osama Bin Laden? Mohammed Atta did that, too.
The only thing we know about them -- other than that they live among us -- is that they are foreign-born and they are Muslims. The government has been remarkably tight-lipped about precisely how many Muslim visitors we are currently accommodating, but from unofficial estimates, there appear to be more than a million. Even if the attorney general instigated latter-day Palmer raids, it will take years and years to investigate and infiltrate every potential terrorist cell operating on our shores. The investigations should not be conducted while the enemy continues residing here, plotting the next attack.
It's an extreme measure, but we face an extreme threat. It is suicidal naivete to think we can simply seal off every water supply, air vent, food supply and crop duster from now until the end of time. We cannot search every truck, every passenger, every shopper, every subway, every person entering every building -- every American every day.
It is impossible to stop Islamic fundamentalists who believe that slaughtering thousands of innocent Americans will send them straight to Allah. All we can do is politely ask aliens from suspect nations to leave -- with the full expectation of readmittance -- while we sort the peace-loving immigrants from the murderous fanatics.
More benefits of the plan next week, but the beauty part of the Terrorist Deportation Plan can't wait. There will be two fail-safes: (1) Muslim immigrants who agree to spy on the millions of Muslim citizens unaffected by the deportation order can stay; and (2) any Muslim immigrant who gets a U.S. senator to waive his deportation -- by name -- gets to stay.
This is brutally unfair to the Muslim immigrants who do not want to kill us. But it's not our fault. It is the fault of the terrorists who are using their fellow Muslims as human shields. So far, America's response to a calculating cold-blooded enemy has been to say, "Excuse me, you seem to have dropped your box-cutter."

Thank you for your lonely voice of sanity.
Reference: It is suicidal naivete to think we can simply seal off every water supply, air vent, food supply and crop duster .....
Anyone who wants to poison millions of us is as likely to use an agricultural aircraft ["Cropduster"] as he is to steal a B-52 to bomb the WTC and Pentagon.
He will buy [Or already did!!!] a Cessna Caravan, a Shorts Skyvan, a Britten-Norman Islander or Trislander [Or a whole third-level airline fleet of them!] -- and will install simple off-the-shelf tanks [Sorenson is the industry standard] and retractable spray booms fitted with Micronaire AU5000 Rotary Atomizers -- and spray until thousands more of us are dead!
Shooting him down will atomize his load more efficaciously.
And locking up all of the Ag-planes will have served as much purpose as having all of the B-1s, B-2s and B-52s locked up served us on September 11!
God bless you, Ma'am!
It is really too bad that ten thousand American corporations have had first-to-ten-thousandth crack at the job applicants before our government gets a look at them.
And that America's totalitarian/terrorist enemies get first pick of theirs!
They've given away so much of the wealth of this country that foriegners can give bigger contributions than we can. Want to know why they vote like they do? Follow the money...
You are losing me Ann, as I told you my e-mail.
This line is pure hyteria:
almost all the mass murderers of Americans have been aliens.
Prove it. PS Ann, if you want to remain credible, stop writing columns like the last one, basically calling for a renewal of the crusades.
The obvious is that this, like the knowledge of the coming assault on the fleet in Hawaii, and purposely sending a ship into harms way pre-WW1 - continues a long sordid practice of Federal authority to allow the unthinkable to rouse the sentiment of the American people to the pitch needed to engage in war. War that could not be waged, without such provocation.
No one can convince me that we did not know this was coming, or that it could not have been prevented, nor that this event is not going to be used to institute permanent authoritarian revocation of American liberties and freedoms.
But - now that we are where we are - we can not retreat from that which is set before us - any more than we could in past history. The threat allowed to grow, has to be eliminated.
Problem is - after that is accomplished, we need to throw a lot of socialists out of office - a massive job, but one we can not ignore any more than we can ignore the threat from outside our nation. All should be forced to leave, including the UN, and their supporters in this nation. We can do that, if we have the will to demand it.
Socialists in the media should also be targeted.
1. Never underestimate that every key feral-gummint position is occupied by a "Democratic" party activist -- and/or that many of them hold the rest of us in total contempt -- and worse.
2. Never underestimate that 10,000 American Corporations get to pick over the job-applicant pool before the feral-gummint gets to chose from what's left.
3. And never forget that our totalitarian/terrorist enemies do not have ten attractive corporate jobs to offer -- among them all -- and their totalitarian/terrorist enemy states therefore offer the best jobs -- and get the smartest and most competent hires.
While we entrust our governance to failed lawyers and our security and our defence to our Nation's ten-thousandth-and first level [From the top] of competence! ! !
Who then "do battle" with Our Nation's enemies -- who laugh all the way to the WTC!!
Talk about "Trust a 'f*****g W*p' to bring a knife to a gun fight," eh, Mr Ness?
God save Our Beloved Fraternal Republic.
