With the changing face of this country, these guys may be hard to locate.

Now, FOX is also saying "it's a very long border"...so they are now saying there may have been a NUMBER of entry points.

Yes, Dog...it sounds very serious.

The FBI just happens to have photographs of the suspects, but they won't tell us:

1. The location of the border crossing. Was it Washington or was it New York?

2. The manner of crossing. Was it a car, truck, tank, flying carpet?

3. Why did they issue the alert 5 days after the suspicious border crossing?

And the Feds really want them in custody before New Years.

If they got in Christmas Eve, they could be just about anywhere by now..

My guess is that the Feds have figured out that if they can't find them after 5 days, time to get the public involved before New Years Eve..

Thanks, Dog! Saw this on Fox. If we have their pictures, they were either on a watch list (ignored apparently by the Canadians and our INS) OR they were being watched and slipped over the border without going through a checkpoint (MILES of unwatched Canadian border..easy to do on Christmas Eve).

I think the fact that they haven't released where they came over indicates that we don't know...meaning they slipped over in unmonitored areas.

Does a person need a passport picture to cross from Canada to the U.S.? Maybe they copied the passport photos when they entered the US?

These guys were on a FBI watch list and the FBI watched them enter our country on Christmas Eve. This is a terror cell and they knew security would be lax on Christmas Eve. Something is up.

This is a little alarming, the comments at the bottom photo:

Al Rauf Bin Al Habib Bin Yousef Al-Jiddi Passport-type Photo Found with Suicide Letter.

So what did his suicide letter say?

IF they slipped thru in unmonitored locations, then why are they reporting the men were acting suspiciously? (Unless the fact they slipped over illegal was suspicious in itself), which leads me to the next question. How did they know they crossed the border if no one saw them?

They tried to use this same route but we caught the guy at the border...let me see if I can find the story.

I saw a video retrospective on this (I think CNN), and the guy at the Washington State border was a lady. She said the terrorist (a guy) was nervous, in fact sweating. Fairly stupid attempt, with suspicious stuff in his trunk.

Is it just me, or does there seem to be a serious freak-out factor involved with these guys? CNN was saying that some or all of their names have come up in other investigations. Don't think I want to know what the other investigations were about.

Could they be known ‘persons of interest’ for lack of a better term, and the FBI just connected the names to people who have crossed the boarder. They do not take pictures at border crossings.

Well, going on the miniscule information we have, I would say they were acting suspiciously in Canada. Then they disappeared from view, and we picked up info that they had made it into the USA.

This is simply my conjecture, trying to make sense of the situation with crummy information. I will cheerfully entertain other theories.

MSNBC says photos are from passport photos.

Showing map of northeast Canada/New York.

So, they let illegal aliens right on in.

OK, so that eliminates how they may have gotten their pictures..

So the FBI had them on their watch list, only they slipped in, is all we know.

Perhaps they monitored a conversation elsewhere stating some operatives made it into the USA. I hope they're caught soon.

I should have added if one is a US citizen. So they probably would have needed one. Sorry

No problem :~)

Would have been more helpful if these guys pictures were on the Front Page of every sunday paper in our Country, this morning.

Now, we have to rely on the public watching FOX or CNN.

The suspicious part is that they are Hispanic looking men, with Arab names. The names don't go with the faces except for Pervez. The last names are Ali, Ali, Owasi, Pervez and Jamal. Jose Padilla was AKA Abdullah al Muhajir.

I agree---How on earth did they get into this country in the first place!!!

Easy: They drove over the border like everybody else. Canada couldn't care less about the terrorists there because it "adds to their diversity," and the US Border Patrol doesn't care because their hands are tied by political correctness and RATS.

Jees, I hope they don't start in California for they would have to weed through over 100,000 legal...Ilegal aliens to find them.

California ...I think the word you're looking for is "undocumented voter."
