"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."

Yes, this is what I am wondering, too.

Hurricane warning for parts of the east coast now:

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

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.

"This particular warning has the "financial" theme. What other themes are there that we need to look at NOW? What targets within those themes?"

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.

Katherine Harris: U.S. has thwarted 100 attacks

Speaking at a Republican rally, the congresswoman credits President Bush with making the country safe.

By DAVID HACKETT

NYT REGIONAL NEWSPAPERS

VENICE, Fla. — U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris said Monday that the United States has “literally defeated 100 (potential) terrorist attacks on this country” in the past three years, some of which could have been as deadly as the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center.

Speaking Monday night in Venice at a rally in support of President Bush, Harris said the United States is winning the war against terrorism.

“His remarkable leadership has made our country safe,” Harris told an overflow crowd of more than 600 at the Holiday Inn. The event was sponsored by the Republican Club of South Sarasota County.

In an interview after the speech, Harris said she learned from classified information about the 100 potential attacks that have been thwarted since 9/11.

“Actually, it’s been more than 100,” she said. “It’s classified obviously not classified to me but things I can’t go into detail about.”

The Lincoln tunnel may have been a secondary. The action in DC tonight may be related to secondaries as well.

How do you influence consumers? I think that the goblin's normal suicide behavior would not be as effective as they'd like.

Maybe something to keep us from being able to consume or purchase.

" Attacks against aviation facilities and infrastructure (airport and air traffic services).
• Use of cyber or other electronic attacks.....
Such as the computer systems failures yesterday here in the US for American Airlines and US Air... affected over 300 flights."

And the similar failure for Northwest airlines two weeks ago. First they said it was a power failure, then they said it was a computer problem.

Hope your day and night were perfect! I'm heading to rack some zzzzzz's. Those deriding the "old information" about NY, etc. are truly ignorant of the way AQ operates. Years and years of planning go into their operations. Here's a snip from a published article:

But intelligence officials and experts on terror also point out that Al Qaeda never carried out spectacular attacks, like the 9/11 attacks or the 1998 embassy bombings in Africa, in less than two-year intervals. Many of those attacks were in planning stages for more than four years. That has officials worried about what may now be in the planning stages.

Think of the DC snipers spread accross middle America, while still trying to hit NY and DC area. If it becomes risky to buy in a small town, that will spread. NY and DC are a foreign area to most of America. The terrorists can't be that dumb. Time will tell.

The price of oil will continue to be a drag on our economy. Today oil futures hit the all time high on the Mercantile. $50 a barrel doesn't sound as far fetched as it did a few months ago. All of that extra money spent on gas is diverted from other consumer goods that we could be buying to keep the economy humming. Our dependence on foreign oil is slowly bleeding our economy, which the terrorists like to see.

If the RNC is serious about eliminating the IRS, that would carry the weight of drilling offshore FL and Alaska.

I really don't think we have the time anyway. We may have to act to take control of some wells and ports.

Big Rig Spills Chlorine Gas, Shuts Down Hwy. 1
Hazmat Clean-Up Crews On Scene Of Overturned Big Rig

POSTED: 6:12 pm PDT August 2, 2004
http://www.nbc11.com/news/3608142/detail.html
Hazardous waste removal teams are at the scene of an overturned big rig that was hauling chlorine gas near state Highway 1 south of Albion, the California Highway Patrol in Mendocino County reports.

Officer Robert Simas said no contact has been made with the driver and the Highway 1 is closed a mile away from the spill in both the north and south directions. People living within a mile radius of the accident site have been evacuated or are sheltering in place and some gas has been released into the air, Simas said.

The big rig overturned onto its roof around 11:12 a.m. The rig spilled cylinders and drums containing chlorine gas, sulfur dioxide and sodium hypochlorite, Simas said.

A command post has been established a mile from the scene on Albion Ridge Road at the intersection of Highway 1.

POSTED: 5:40 pm PDT August 2, 2004
UPDATED: 6:48 pm PDT August 2, 2004
http://www.thekcrachannel.com/traffic/3608111/detail.html
COLFAX, Calif. -- Three separate crashes in Placer county involving more than two dozen cars and two big rigs shut down part of Interstate 80 Monday.
The westbound lanes were completely shut down between Gold Run and Colfax after multiple vehicles rear-ended each other, causing four minor injuries.


Video from LiveCopter 3 showed one collision between a big rig and a passenger van.


Authorities said the crashes occured shortly after another big rig caught fire and started a nearby grassfire.


Traffic was backed up and being diverted to the Rollins LakeRoad exit.


Authorities expected to have the roadway open by 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. Monday.

An Army General, an Air Force General, and a Navy Admiral had a bet, and set out to prove who had the toughest people.

The Army General ordered two tanks to face each other, and open fire. BOOM! Both tanks destroyed. He said, "Tank crews are tough!".

The Air Forc General had three F16's take off, and ordered the pilots to head for each other. BOOM! All three jets destroyed. He said, "Pilots are tougher!"

The Navy Admiral laughed and said, "Watch this". He took the generals to an aircraft carrier, and grabbed the first Boatswain's Mate he found.
He said "Son, I want you to climb to the top of the tallest radar mast."
"Aye Aye, Sir!" said the sailor, and immediately raced to the top.
The Admiral shouted up, "Okay, now JUMP!"
The sailor promptly shouted back, "F*** YOU!"

The Admiral won the bet.

‘CREDIBLE’ INTELLIGENCE
Source: Attack to be in early September

BY KNUT ROYCE
WASHINGTON BUREAU

August 3, 2004


WASHINGTON -- More financial institutions than previously disclosed may be at risk of attack, and an al-Qaida operative has told British intelligence that the group's target date is early September, intelligence sources said yesterday.

The operative, described as "credible" by British intelligence, told his debriefers that the attack would take place "60 days before the presidential election" on Nov. 2, according to a former senior National Security Council official. On Sept. 2 President George W. Bush is expected to address the Republican National Convention at Madison Square Garden.

Counterterrorism officials are analyzing data from a computer seized in Pakistan last month to see if financial institutions in addition to the five disclosed Sunday are at risk of attack, U.S. officials said yesterday.

Hurricane Alex
Glancing blow to the Outer Banks of NC Likely, some strengthening also likely with falling pressure over the past 6 hours. I would guess this guy will top out somewhere near 100 mph (after passing by NC) before weaking, few people should see major wind affects. Flooding and tornadoes are the greatest risk across NC/Southeast VA.

Statement as of 2:00 am EDT on August 03, 2004
Current Advisory

...Alex becomes the first hurricane of the 2004 season...moving
almost parallel to the North Carolina coast...

a Hurricane Warning is in effect from Cape Lookout to Oregon Inlet
North Carolina...including the Pamlico Sound. This means that
hurricane conditions are expected within the warning area during
the next 24 hours. Preparations to protect life and property should
be rushed to completion.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from north of Oregon Inlet to
the North Carolina/Virginia border...including the Albemarle Sound.

A Tropical Storm Warning is also in effect from South Santee River
South Carolina to Cape Lookout North Carolina.
Reports from an Air Force reserve hurricane hunter aircraft and the
National Weather Service Doppler radar at Wilmington North Carolina
indicate that Alex has become a hurricane.
