DRUDGE FLASHBACK 1998: BIN LADEN TERROR WARNING FOR NY AND DC

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX MON DEC 14, 1998 04:09:22 UTC XXXXX

TERROR THREATS HIT AMERICA

Osama bin Laden may be planning a strike on Washington or New York, TIME magazine is reporting in fresh editions. Just as, U.S. embassies in four Persian Gulf countries were warning Sunday night of a "strong possibility" that terrorists might attempt an attack against one or more U.S. targets in the region in the coming weeks.

According to reports, the U.S. government has obtained information indicating "a strong possibility that terrorist elements are planning an attack against U.S. targets in the gulf, possibly in the next 30 days."

The U.S. issued the warning on Sunday to Americans in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. The warning was "unusually precise," reports the NEW YORK TIMES on Monday. "And it was backed up by a show of particular concern." In Bahrain, headquarters of the U.S. Fifth Fleet, nearly 1,000 U.S. military personnel have been put under curfew and told not to gather in public places.

But the Laden scare also is being felt domestically, intelligence sources tell TIME they have evidence that bin Laden may be planning his boldest move yet--a strike on Washington or possibly New York City in an eye-for-an-eye retaliation. "We've hit his headquarters, now he hits ours," a State tells TIME.

No one has yet used the new "threats" in any argument against the pending impeachment.

If this situation weren't so tragic (the 9/11 aspect), it would be funny.

Here are the demoMORONs going on an expedition hunt looking to pin the blame on W. All they are going to find is that Bubba Klintoon avoided every single opportunity to prevent a 9/11 from happening. In fact, he fostered an environment that allowed 9/11 to happen.

This has shades the Enron "blowback"

They are just so stooopid. The only angle that concerns me is the massive influence of the lamestream media. We need to combat it at the grassroots level.

Clearly the New York Times and Time Magazine had knowledge of the 9-11-01 attacks years in advance and did nothing to stop them.

Well, perhaps they made the information available to the public, but it had NO EFFECT! These news organizations are clearly guilty of neglect if these warning were credible, they should been reprinted in EVERY issue until the predicted attack occured.

I stand by the prez in this affair. Where he and I part company is the fact that even after 9-11, we still have Arabic men, including some from nations on the terrorist list, coming to America to learn to fly airplanes. I remember not long after 911, there were sourced stories here on FR to that effect. Ann Coulter raised a fair amount of hell about this. Bush and I also disagree as to whether Islam is a religion of peace.

Drudge misses it, too. The WH press corp, Ari Fleischer and theentire Congress misses the main fact. The dot they all want to connect is Project Bojinka.

Looks like your wife would have had three years to prepare if she had been on one of the flights. Of course, even the people on the hijacked planes weren't worried when the planes were first taken over. Like any of us would have, they figured they'd just end up in some other country with a great story to tell.

Your "on Bush's watch" statement is as transparently biased as the media's obsession with yesterday's photo scandal . All actual attacks and warnings came on Clinton's watch, but we know he was busy lying fulltime to the American people and REFUSED ALL NATIONAL SECURITY BRIEFINGS IN HIS SECOND TERM!!!

Good for you. Call Daschle and Gephardt's offices too. Perhaps email this to them as well. The Dems are complete and total scum. I never thought they would stoop this low. Now I know better. Hope W does too.

Understand something, and understand it well: If they had to personally slit the throats of 9 out of 10 Americans to get one more congressional seat, they would do it with a song in their heart and a skip in their step.

There is no low-water-mark for these people, and I mean NONE.

I just sent Drudge link to Daschle and Hillary; the coward Gephardt has no public e-mail, so I suggested one of Daschle's klucks inform Gep's office (I'm sure they will).

I called both Daschle and Gephardt's offices. Talked to a live person from Daschle's and a message machine from Gephardt's. This is so disgusting it is unbelieveable. I cannot believe AP has actually gone out and interviewed the survivors of victims about this. AAAAARGHHH!

I received this post from a fellow freeper and I thought it was very interesting.

Remember last month the demo twins, Little Dickie Gephart and Tiny Tom Dashole wrote to the tv news nets complaining about too much coverage of Bush and no coverage of them? Well, I believe that was an opening move in their war against the Repubs and Bush for this summer. After the news shows did their bidding and started showing more of the twins and less of Bush and his cabinet officers, WAHLAH, now this news hits the airwaves and the twins have back to back news briefings spouting the same ole crap they tried tentatively a couple weeks after 9/11. There is absolutely nothing new in these reports, just how they have been presented to the public by the news media at the bidding of the Evil Twins who are totally controlled by the Clintons. Has it been an accident that just the last week ex42 came out and stated flatly that Gore won the election instead of Bush? We are fighting evil and it is going to take a lot of prayers and work and money to defeat these devils.

Deb, do you have any URL's handy re: Clinton's refusal to listen to National Security briefings in his second term? any proof statements?

I could really use them for an ongoing debate!

I'm not sure what the key word would be to pull up the articles from the archives, but they must be there. There was even a joke among the Clinton aides when that guy flew his plane into the White House that it was maybe Sessions or whoever trying to brief the president because he couldn't get an appointment.

The man who wrote the last report on terrorism during the Clinton administration was all over TV after 9/11 saying he tried to get somebody to listen to him after he delivered his report to every agency, government office and news outlet in Washington, but not one asked for an interview or briefing. He also said Clinton took no national security briefings during his second term.
