    U.S. official: Bin Laden no longer greatest threat

    "American-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and his group, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, now pose a more serious terrorist threat inside the U.S. than the original al-Qaida group led by Osama bin Laden, a top U.S. counterterrorism official said Wednesday.

    National Counterterrorism Center Director Michael Leiter described the group as "probably the most significant risk to the U.S. homeland" in testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee..."

    Anwar al Awlaki was born and raised in New Mexico. He's as American as apple pie. Al Awlaki was in repeated contact with US Army Major Nidal Hasan who killed 12 US soldiers and one civilian, and wounded over 30 others, on a US military base in Texas.

    Al Awlaki was also the mentor of Farouk Abdulmuttalab the would be Christmas bomber who blew up his own underwear over Detroit. Al Awlaki was also in contact with a guy named Shazad the would be Times Square bomber. Shazad said his attempted bombing was in retribution for Obama's drone war over Pakistan.

    Anwar al Awlaki lives in Yemen now. While he was still on US territory the US Govt. unwittingly invited him to a conference in Washington, DC after the 9/11 attacks.

    So an American citizen has now displaced Osama bin Laden as Public Enemy No. One. I wonder why an American is trying to kill other Americans? The whole world wonders.

    Re: U.S. official: Bin Laden no longer greatest threat

    I believe our biggest threat is from within, and those who wish to in our Capitalist System and replace it with Socialism/Marxism.


    I see Obama putting together coalitions with lies and false promises and Dismantling our Constitution a slice at time until there is nothing left except the New World Order and we will be slaves and poor.

    I see the Tea Party as possibly being the answer to stopping this nonsense, before it's too late.

    All of Islam made themselves our enemy we didn't do it. Ye our leaders made mistakes and backed Dictators but the people as a whole do not agree with those policies, but listening to and doing the Bidding of a follower of Blaxk Liberation Theology is the wost thing we can do.

    Bin Laden has not been the "greatest threat" to the US since early 2002 when Bush wanted to go into Iraq.

    As for the greatest threat.. I would call it equal between Islamists and radical right wing shoot first never ask questions later Americans.

    Right wingers are America's greatest hope. One day, when you grow up and travel more than two miles away from your village, you'll understand that.

    Technically, those 2 things are incompatable...


    I see Obama putting together coalitions with lies and false promises and Dismantling our Constitution a slice at time until there is nothing left except the New World Order and we will be slaves and poor.

    So you believe Obama is a dictator, who sits in the oval office and decrees what citizens shall do, and not do, and he is the all powerful one.

    It's times like these where your critisism, actually makes Obama more powerful then he is.

    In short, you give him far to much credit.

    You have the house of representatives, the president has to go by them to. Or did you forget how your own goddam system of government works?

    All of Islam made themselves our enemy we didn't do it.
    All of Islam? I really don't know what universe you live in.

    Ye our leaders made mistakes and backed Dictators but the people as a whole do not agree with those policies, but listening to and doing the Bidding of a follower of Blaxk Liberation Theology is the wost thing we can do.


    OH YES! That's the Ticket.

    I love hearing that one. Still my absolute favorite of all the unbelievable crap people are willing to say against Obama. There is so much you can critisize him for that's real, you really don't have to go into La La land to find it.

    He's not a Black Liberation Theologist...

    Besides this whole New Black Panther episode, which I'd like to know more about, he hasn't done anything in favour of blacks, blacks still account for nearly 40% of the prison population, he didn't swing open the doors to their cells

    How about people with courage and good ideas?

    Not every person who stormed the beaches of Normandy, were "conservative".

    99% of those are Rightists. So far, the American Left has come up with more bad ideas than good ones.

    The American people are seeing a much different picture. Did you notice the results from the midterms?
