    Officials chase unconfirmed al-Qaida bomb threat

    Officials chase unconfirmed al-Qaida bomb threat - Yahoo! News


    Law enforcement officials were pursuing three people who may be traveling to the U.S. or who have recently entered the country, based on the detailed information received by the U.S. intelligence community late Wednesday, officials said. The intelligence suggested that al-Qaida planned to car bomb one of the two cities that were hit 10 years ago.

    Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that there was no confirmation that anyone had traveled into the U.S. for such a plot although the tip came from a credible source. "There's no certitude," he said.

    "The thing we are all most worried about is what they call a 'lone ranger,' a lone actor, not some extremely complicated plan like it took to take down the World Trade towers," said Biden, who appeared on the trio of network morning TV shows Friday.
    I hope everybody attending these memorials remains safe over the weekend. If this threat proves to be legitimate I also hope we catch all involved parties before anything comes to fruition.

    Re: Officials chase unconfirmed al-Qaida bomb threat

    I was just reading an article about the very same Tess.
    And I was thinking, it must be some pretty stupid individuals to plan an attack on the 10th anniversary date of the towers attack. Our country has been watching, been on the look-out, and we are most likely watching out more right now, than ever before.
    Are people that idiotic, that they think they could possibly get away with trying anything??...well, wait...I guess I already know the answer to that.
    But I would think...hope anyway, that we are more prepared in case anything even looks close to a threat. But I do hope everyone keeps a heads up.
    Washington D.C. and New York seem to be the targets.

    Honestly, I fear that if they try something in New York on 9/11 that we may never try them in court. If a New Yorker observes one of these men in the act of setting up a bomb I can imagine the anger and mourning would propel them to act without much forethought. We might have some prematurely dead terrorist jerkoffs on our hands.

    That's a pretty dumb thing. No smart terrorist will ever attack in such an anniversary, with so much security crawling all over the place. Maybe after a few weeks when things cool down, then attack when everybody's relieved and celebrating that they've avoided another terrorist plot, then shock them and divide the nation again.

    In reality, we get threats daily. People are just more on edge about it because it is 9/11. Will it stop me from going into DC on Sunday? No. Will it make my parents a bit more nervous? Yes.

    Al-Quaida is all about anniversaries. They love symbolism like that. Such a wonderful breed of dog, those al-Quaidas.

    More fear mongering. Left or right, the people in power love to keep people fearful

    The threat is very credible because 3 ringleaders have been identified, but not yet apprehended, and 3 trucks are missing.
