AQ And Dirty Bombs on American Soil

Swiped from Spree at Wake Up America.

This issue is something that has been plaguing this country for years, first with the Soviets, now with the jihadists. However, based on “chatter” picked up via the ALLEGED “illegal” wire tapping (the SAME wire tapping given another six months by the 110th Congress, by the way–showing it in actuality ISN’T illegal, just something more to screech about) has traced the threat to an overseas base. Keep in mind, FISA HAD to be updated in order to keep up with current technology, and that, essentially, is exactly what the 110th Congress gave its blessing to.

Illegal, my big white ass.

Just one more thing those that wish us dead and those that suffer from unmitigated BDS hide their heads in the sand about, while trying to shout down those us with the balls to stay on top of reality–offending, being offensive and trying to obstruct OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF EXPRESSION in favor of their cowardice and hatred of America and all things American. Way to go, idiots. Way to go.

Here is Spree’s article in its entirety, with her usual thoroughness of sources:

Last night we pointed you to DEBKAfile, they monitor the chatter on al-Qaeda websites and the picked up a specific threat: (Via memeorandum)

The threat was picked up by DEBKAfile’s monitors from a rush of electronic chatter on al Qaeda sites Thursday, Aug. 8.

The al Qaeda communications accuse the Americans of the grave error of failing to take seriously the videotape released by the American al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gaddahn last week. “They will soon realize their mistake when American cities are hit by quality operations,” said one message.

Another said the attacks would be carried out “by means of trucks loaded with radio-active material against America’s biggest city and financial nerve center.”

A third message mentioned New York, Los Angeles and Miami as targets. It drew the answer: “The attack, with Allah’s help, will cause an economic meltdown, many dead, and a financial crisis on a scale that compels the United States to pull its military forces out of many parts of the world, including Iraq, for lack of any other way of cutting down costs.”

Messages like this could or could not be the reason our government recently heighten security on the Capitol, after obtaining intelligence regarding an al-Qaeda attack on Congress.

From Roll Call:

Capitol Police officials have stepped up the department’s security presence on Capitol Hill in response to intelligence indicating the increased possibility of an al-Qaida terrorist attack on Congress sometime between now and Sept. 11.

From The Raw Story:

An unnamed Capitol Police source told Roll Call that Congressional security officials were recently made aware of the potential threat by federal anti-terrorism authorities.

We already know from a piece we brought to you on August 6, 2007, that e-mail addresses for American individuals were found on the same password-protected e-mail chains used by the United Kingdom plotters to communicate with Qaeda handlers in Europe….

So al-Qaeda operatives are here in America, and if anyone doubts what their intentions are, they simply don’t use the brain god gave them and should read this post no farther. For the rest of us, we understand that an al-Qaeda presence, added with specific threats to targeted areas and even a possible method of attack, simply gives us more of an oppotunity to be vigilant and alert as a country.

Police confirmed the increased security was in response to receiving information that a dirty bomb may go off around 34th street in Manhattan on Friday evening.

The Empire State Building, New York City’s tallest building, Madison Square Garden and Macy’s department store are in the 34th Street neighborhood.

Simple common sense.

NYC is not taking any chances which is a good gauge of the seriousness of such “chatter” on al-Qeada websites, even before they can fully verify them.

Better safe than sorry doesn’t seem like such a bad philosophy.

Vehicle checkpoints and other counterterrorism precautions are continuing in New York City Saturday morning. They’re a response to what authorities are calling unsubstantiated online threats about a truck packed with radioactive material.

Police have been stopping cars and inspecting trucks in lower Manhattan and various other places around the city. They said they’re also deploying extra radiological sensors on street, water and air patrols.

But federal, state and local officials are stressing that the threats haven’t been verified. The city’s terror alert status hasn’t been changed.

Now, could this be a false alarm? Could this be more of al-Qaeda’s rhetoric to “terrorize” the U.S.? Sure it can.

There is nothing that says we cannot step up, in a precautionary manner, our security measures, and still go about our business, in effect, not letting them terrorize us, but still taking the threats seriously, especially since al-Qaeda has promised us some “summer fun” recently, and their rhetoric these days has the tint of desperation. Desperation can be a dangerous thing.

Again I will say, better safe than sorry.

We have people, it seems, that would rather we not react nor take any precautions at all when we get intelligence or tips to chatter like the tip DEBKAfile managed to get.

Yawwwwnnn…

It gets old, doesn’t it? Obviously, these… these… “PEOPLE” are rooting for President Bush and his cronies; waving the “Bush-Cheney ‘08″ (via martial law) flag for all it’s worth, aren’t they? What’s wrong: can’t put “two and two” together? Allow me to ‘hep ya’ out a bit on that one…

I would ask those same people, if a tip comes in, and our country did nothing at all, just assumed it was a false alarm, and then a radioactive dirty bombs goes off in a city that WAS specified in the “chatter, would they not be the first people on the bandwagon, screaming at the top of their lungs, “NO ONE DID ANYTHING TO PROTECT US, see how horrible Bush is?”

It seems these people would rather us react after being attack instead of dare do anything to take precautions against a “possible” attack.

Brilliant huh? OH and remember, they think they are good about National Security as a party.

Yup.

New York
is handling this wonderfully, taking every precuation, and yet soothing their citizens as best they can by assuring them this is all a precuation.

“Earlier this evening, the NYPD began taking several public precautionary measures visible to New Yorkers to guard against an unverified threat that was found on the Internet,” he said.

“These actions are like those that the NYPD takes every day — precautions against potential but unconfirmed threats that may never materialize,” Bloomberg said.

At Herald Square, the heart of the 34th Street area, late on Friday evening, there was no visible sign of increased police security as New Yorkers went about their regular activities.

I guess people like the one quote above, the Gun Toting Liberal, have it easy, they have no responsibility to keep America safe, they have no obligation to take precautions, they can simply sit at their keyboard and puff their chest out and talk big about bringing it on!!!

BRING IT ON, al-Qaeda; at least I can blow your heads off LEGALLY if you follow through on your promises. On the other hand, I’d be tossed into prison for doing the same to those who have, somehow, made it “legal” to overtake our Government in an allegedly “legal” coup with worse intentions even than your own.

The problem with that line of thinking is in that paragraph right there, “if you followed through on your promises”, well easy to say you would shoot them if they did, but what about the hundred, perhaps thousands that would be killed or injured if we followed that line of thinking, BEFORE he got a chance to start shooting al-Qaeda?

I don’t see that addressed at all.

Brave talk from little men.

In the meantime, the people that DO have the responsibility to keep us safe and DO have the obligation to take precautions against any threats, are doing exactly that, whether it pans out or not, anyone that claims not being prepared is a better option than being prepared obviously needs a dictionary to learn what the word “precaution” means.

We will bring you more as it comes out…

NYPD Taking Extra Precautions after Unsubstantiated Radiological Threat (http://www.emergency.com/archive/cat_wmd-haz-mat.htm)

Take a good look at that link address–that’s not an “ordinary, right wing blog” address–that is a government address. It’s not us crazy right wingers thinking this up–this is a threat being taken seriously by an agency charged with our security.

Of course, you head-up-your-ass liberals will consider it just another one of your convenient conspiracies, the kind that blow up in your faces in the light of real investigation and research. Make NO MISTAKE–it’s NOT a matter of “if”, it’s a matter of WHEN. I personally would prefer to err on the side of caution. Be my guest if you think that’s insane.
