Malls. Mass transit. Vacation resorts. Sports stadia. :shrug:

Be vigilant. Terra from Afghanistan's caves is nigh. Be On The Alert.

1. Did ya hear on MSNBC this was info NOT FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION?
I don't know who the guest was, but Nora O'Dnnel was interviewing him. He tried to explain that because of the equipment the 3 they arrested had, they wanted to alert several different possible venues to watch closely, but it's a generic alert and wasn't to be broadcast to the public. All her response was was "Well you know there's always a leak and we get hold of the info!"

2. Look, if you don't think that their are terrorists out there who want to attack the US then you're
absolutely nuts.

I am as liberal as they come, but I'm also a realist! The reason we got hit on 911 is because Bush wasn't doing his job despite the fact that he was given advanced warning. Obama has not tooted his own horn at all, but if you do a bit of research on the net and elsewhere, you will discover that since he has been in office, he has done a fantastic job of finding ACTUAL terrorists, not a bevy of #2s like the former occupant of the Whitehouse. Don't be surprised if they don't try to retaliate. He is taking the right steps. The Media chose to report was supposed to be for law enforcement only, just to boost ratings.

5. You are absolutely right.

This one could be the real deal.
The guy trained in Pakistan with explosives.
They tried to rent a large U-Haul but their credit card wouldn't go through. They tried cash but it was denied. They had up to seven backpacks, chemical scales, batteries and explosive manuals on a laptop. What does the average person DO with all this shit??

I live just a few miles from where Ressam tried to cross from Canada on a ferry. His trunk was loaded with Nitro and he was heading to LAX airport.
He was caught by a VERY astute Border Agent at Port Angeles Washington. She noticed he was sweating and nervous so she called in help. He bolted, but was caught hiding under a car.

edit spelling

3. Weird - and there isn't even an election coming up in the next few days!
Actually, there's no significant event coming up - no holidays, nothing - wow. Imagine that. A terror alert that isn't for political purposes! So refreshing.

6. Maybe you missed that there is going to be a push for a "surge" in Afghanistan.

Nothing more significant than a holiday? :eyes:

8. I thought that shit started back in April!
Okay, so it has taken him a while to get around to some things, but the so called "push for a surge" is certainly nothing new. They were talking about shifting 30K troops from Iraq to Afghanistan in the Spring. It didn't HAPPEN, but some "leaked" document with yet ANOTHER military figure calling for more troops is just another "push for a surge" in a long stream.

9. I know we are supposed to be cynics
but this was not supposed to be released for public consumption, but was supposed to be a general alert given what they found. The kind of general alert that Emergency Services receive fairly often around the world.

Now exactly what are they trying to distract us from, and I'd asked who the fuck leaked this to the media? I mean it WASN'T supposed to be leaked.

Did I mention it was issued after they found bona fide bomb making materials?

Now let me get the asbestos. After the last eight years we are supposed to be the ultimate cynics.
