Terrific!!!

I have a few comments:

1. Clearly the WOT is NOT over, just because Obama wants to stick his head in the sand and won't even use the term.

2. Spying on AQ works -- maybe that's what we should be concentrating on, instead of wasting time and effort on spying on ALL US citizens.

3. With all our advanced technology, how come AQ can come up with a "new type of explosive that we had never seen and our detection equipment wasn't calibrated to detect it"????!!!!!!!

4. Why is the TSA chief confirming all this in a news conference letting everyone, including Al Qaeda know this????!!!

Just trying to wear us down, as it were. So we no longer question the unlawful actions of the Police state.

“The plot was foiled thanks to a double-agent inside al Qaeda’s Yemen branch”

Thanks for the info -

Not just “TO” our underware — down to being stark naked, while the TSA personnel checks out your underware too.

It is insane that AQ could come up with explosive material that our sophisticated equipment can’t detect!!!!!

"Designed by one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, Ibrahim al-Asiri, the device featured “a new type of explosive that we had never seen,” Pistole said. "

Is this Jihadi just another #2 that we always get or is he a #1?

Where's Mullah Omar?

There is NO war on terror.

Get it straight

There IS a war .. WITH terror(ists) conducted aginst the united States.

Israel is Israel ... but look at the planet.

WHOM has the most "security" agencies, devices and programs ?

WE do.

It's an entire industry with supported industries on the side.

WHO is the target of terror(ists) ?

WE are


So don't give me that WOT crap ... it's a war against the USA and the sooner we realize it, the easier it will be to take out the minions and leave the snake head for later.

Let a couple of TSA employee lounges blow up and watch the tit suckers vanish

AH ain' goin' t'work t'day ... NO frickin' WAY, man ...

You actually think TSA is patriotic loyal?

BS ... it's the money, job security and the satisfaction of the Little Ceasar syndrome.

Yet another fabricated threat to strip Americans of our constitutional rights.

Read an article quoting Dick Cheney in support of NSA spying in an effort to prevent a nuke from being detonated within the United States.

Making suspects out of American citizens is NOT what OUR gubbamint should be doing based off of theory and conjecture.

Heaven forbid that would ever happen and prudence should be taken, but if it ever did happen, the U.S. would and should completely eliminate the country in which the threat originated.

These animals in the middle east understand only force. Bringing them to their knees is the only solution, not groping nuns, old ladies and kiddos.

There are few websites that really track the WoT, especially in an easy to read format. But Rantburg is perhaps the best.

http://www.rantburg.com/

As a note, they got burned in the copyright deal with those nasty Nevada barratry lawyers, so they insert euphemisms into their stories. While initially a little confusing, you get used to it quickly.

Almost none of the news they post makes it into the MSM, so everything is fresh.

There IS a war, but if you wish to, dare to, name the precise enemy it is islam.

It is a cold war, a world war, and it has been waged for centuries. It is a war of Freedom vs slavery. Reason vs violence. Good vs evil.

In the grand scheme of things, the horrors of nazism and communism were mere sideshows.

Human intelligence is what has nabbed many of the suspected terrorists or enabled us to target them. The NSA surveillance on American citizens isn’t an active part in these types of situations as far as I can tell,,yet,,this communist administration continues to use that line to justify the existence of their intrusive database building.

Not enough explosive matter to do anything but blow the Jihadi’s parts off.

Smoke and Mirrors from the Administration who desperately needs somebody to deflect the interest in the multiple Felonys, treason and looting of the treasury.

Just why O Bammy, can we not return one half of the gold deposits of Germany in less than seven years? Where is the gold?

The first thing I thought of was that this is an excuse for more free feelies for TSA goons. The state has to keep people in a state of fear so they will quietly accept violations of their rights.

They depend upon a state of constant fear in the weaker minded to ensure their pay, pensions and power. Of course part of their constituency consists of those who just can’t get enough security theater. You know, the “loose lips sink ships” crowd.

All these “we could have stopped this if we had this,” “we stopped some unidentified something in some something country that would have been real bad,” et cetera are just a bunch of lying bullshit.

TSA, DHS et al can’t find their butts with both hands and a flashlight. Anything they’ve stopped where it’s been show that it was an actual threat was as a result of them MISSING it and the perpetrators failing.

Underwear bomber: detonated in flight, failed.
Shoe bomber: tried to light in flight, failed.
Boston: successful - NSA, TSA, DHS, FBI too busy listening to our phone calls to care.

Incompetents.

Yes, exactly. And now, after over a decade of brainwashing about TSA, they can do whatever they want (stop people in malls, search valet-parked cars, interrogate at bus stations, paw through people’s things anywhere they feel like it, stealing what they want — just like in Soviet Russia).

Don’t forget this was after the US was warned specifically about the BB by name at least twice and they ignored the warnings.

Indeed. Who is like unto Fedzilla? Who can make war with it? Especially now with its blasphemous Obamahead and his many like-minded hydraheads.

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Rev 13

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
