I don't know how many have checked this out, but there are a lot of answers to the questions you're asking about the intentions of the enemy. The more we can learn about them outside of news articles, the better we'll understand how they may be plotting. Even though the primary weapon here is anthrax, it gives insight into their operations. This is only part of the TOC.

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | Just in time for air travelers who may have started to relax a little bit comes a new book suggesting ways that passengers can beat up a suspected terrorist.
An airline pilot, a SWAT team commander and a police instructor joined in writing "Never Again: A Self-Defense Guide for the Flying Public."

The next thought I had on the matter was that it sounded so "James Bond" Almost as if the theft was warranted for some reason. If true, it represents a whole new bag of worms for Los Alamos management and national security. If the Brits who allegedly took the disks are aligned with the British government, that's one thing, but if they are not, then that's a whole different ballgame.
You're welcome. I hope that new ideas are sparked by the information.
How nice for all of us, but especially for those who are new to TM nad those not able to be on regularly! But all in one place like that, excellent job I-Man!
LOL she has been Auntie since she was 6!
(State News, VA, August 2nd, 2004, 1:12 p.m.) More than four thousand local, state and federal personnel will take part in a major counter-terrorism exercise that begins later this week in central and eastern Virginia.
According to a statement from Governor Mark Warner, the drill, called "Determined Promise 04," will begin Wednesday and run through next Tuesday, August 10th. The exercise is sponsored by the federal government. Warner says Virginia and California were chosen by the United States Department of Defense's Northern Command, or NORTHCOM.
Officials: 'Treasure trove' followed al Qaeda arrest
Capture of suspect in Pakistan led to terror alerts
08/02/04 09:52 PM, EDT
The recent arrest in Pakistan of a computer expert with suspected ties to al Qaeda turned up evidence that the terror network has kept key U.S. financial buildings under surveillance, possibly for years, U.S. officials said Monday.
Statue of Liberty scheduled to reopen
08/02/04 08:06 PM, EDT
Barring last-minute terrorism alerts or other problems, the Statue of Liberty will reopen to visitors Tuesday for the first time since the 2001 terrorist attacks that destroyed the nearby World Trade Center.
Molotov cocktail comes to mind!
Yes, this is what I am wondering, too.
Hurricane warning for parts of the east coast now:
We just had a test of the EAS about 10 minutes ago. A "statewide" test according to the voice. I've never heard one this late, or at an odd time. Normally they're at the top of the hour around 11:00 am.
You are expressing what I have been thinking since the Sunday announcement. The areas announced are the safest to be in now. You don't plan a major hit without secondary objectives. Plan "B" is what I would like to determine.
The best way to shake the economy would be to influence the "consumers". The destruction of buildings won't make a difference. Too many backups are in place in regards to records.
thank you, tis beautiful to me, but so is my Kini ;)
New files posted at abualbukhary.net since the last listing on July 24th.
Thank you Nana, missed you also!
Hi thecabal. Thanks for telling us. I miss you already! I hope the week goes by quickly. :)
Thanks for posting that.
We were just talking on the phone about the threat warning.
Wondering if the computer data was old or new.
