    Andrea Mitchell on Friday landed an exclusive interview with Chicago slumlord Valerie Jarrett to discuss terrorist threats against the United States, as well as the resignation of her close friend Attorney General Eric Holder. It was a very enlightening interview. “I have nothing new to report,” Jarrett said when asked about reported threats to U.S. subway systems. Mitchell asked about President Obama’s speech at the United Nations earlier this week. It was a very important speech, Jarrett said. “It was a very strong, powerful speech,” she said. “It was a very constructive and important week, and the speech sent a...

    DC Clothesline ^ | 10/11/2013 | Pamela Geller
    "We’re waiting for the next 9/11 to happen, because it’s not a question of if. It’s a question of when.” I believe these dry runs are just probes for weaknesses in our burdensome, illogical security apparatus. There’s a plan a foot, no doubt. As for the group of four “Middle Eastern” men that caused a commotion, methinks they worked for Hamas-CAIR and were “probing” for a lawsuit. “The TSA doesn’t want the flying public to be aware of the problems with terrorist probes.” The media doesn’t want to cover or report on jihad here or abroad. The Obama administration denies...
  • 60 Terrorist Plots Since 9/11: Continued Lessons in Domestic Counterterrorism

    Heritage Foundation ^ | July 22, 2013 | Jessica Zuckerman, Steven P. Bucci, Ph.D. and James Jay Carafano, Ph.D.
    Abstract The Heritage Foundation has tracked post-9/11 terrorist plots against the United States in an effort to study the evolving nature of the threat and to garner lessons learned. The best way to protect the United States from terrorism is to ensure a strong and capable domestic counterterrorism enterprise—and to understand the continuing nature of the terror threat. The Boston Marathon bombing was the 59th publicly known terror plot against the United States since 9/11. In a political environment of sequestration on the one hand, and privacy concerns on the other, there are those on both sides of the aisle...

    The son of Omar Abdel Rahman, a Jama’a al-Islamiya leader known as the “Blind Sheikh” who was convicted of terrorism charges in the US in 1995, threatened to organize a protest at the US Embassy in Cairo and detain the employees inside. Abdallah Abdel Rahman’s threat came during a press conference organized by the sheikh’s family near the highly fortified American embassy compound on Thursday evening. Abdel Rahman demanded that President Mohamed Morsy intervene for the release of his father as he did in the case of Egyptian journalist Shaimaa Adel who was detained for nearly two weeks for covering...

    Toronto Star ^ | 1/25/10 | Steve Mertl
    VANCOUVER – Thousands of police will keep watch over the Vancouver Winter Olympics but the first line of defence against potential threats at the events themselves will be private security screeners, many with no previous experience. Spectators heading into venues will go through airport-style screening – walking through the familiar metal detectors, perhaps followed by a once-over with a scanning wand while their bags go through an X-ray machine. On the other end of those security devices – in what is likely the biggest security operation in Canadian history outside of wartime – will be 5,000 employees of Contemporary Security...

    MUNICH, Germany (AFP) – "Maybe the terrorists should come down and have a drink with us," suggested Bob Kalman, as he enjoyed a beer in one of the huge tents at Germany's world-famous Oktoberfest in Munich this week. "It might solve a few of the world's problems if people got talking," the 30-year-old marketing manager originally from the Scottish city of Glasgow, now looking very German in his lederhosen, told AFP. A string of threats against Germany by Islamic militants in the run-up to last Sunday's general election has prompted security to be stepped up around the country, including at...

    Homeland Security: Beware instability in Middle East, Africa The terrorism threat to the United States over the next five years will be driven by instability in the Middle East and Africa, persistent challenges to border security and increasing Internet savvy, says a new intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press. Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks are considered the most dangerous threats that could be carried out against the U.S. But those threats are also the most unlikely because it is so difficult for al-Qaida and similar groups to acquire the materials needed to carry out such plots, according to...

Neither U.S. nor German officials would provide specific details, but one diplomat said the steps were taken to guard against a particular threat and a newspaper reported that Iraqi-linked militants were scouting U.S. facilities in Germany. "U.S. diplomatic and consular facilities in Germany are increasing their security posture," the embassy said in a statement sent by email.

    WASHINGTON -- The health of terrorist cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman, the so-called Blind Sheik, is deteriorating _ renewing fears that his death in prison could trigger an attack on the United States, officials said Thursday. There is no credible indication that an attack on the U.S. is imminent, said several law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation. In a two-page bulletin, dated Dec. 8, the FBI reported to federal intelligence officials that Rahman was rushed from prison to a Missouri hospital two days earlier for a blood transfusion. There, doctors discovered...

    Prior to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, few in government or the media took seriously the numerous warning signs. Now, we are regularly warned of new terror threats, and both government and the media are paying attention. The question is whether government is doing enough -- or can do enough -- to stop another attack. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence got an earful last week from top officials commissioned to watch external and internal threats. CIA Director Porter Goss said, "It may be only a matter of time before al...

    WASHINGTON — Top government officials worry about the possibility of radioactive "dirty bombs" being detonated in large cities. Airlines, scared of losing business, protest that new security measures will bankrupt them. Civil liberties groups fear a focus upon Arab-Americans and Arab travelers will erode basic freedoms. Sounds familiar? It should. It is the present, and also the past — more than three decades ago, according to declassified documents obtained by The Associated Press.

The latest statement, which was not signed, was addressed to "the leaders of Japan" and accused Japan of allying with the United States, "which destroyed and caused bloodshed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki."
