The tone of this article is interesting, especially in citing how al Qaeda was especially pleased at how the attacks in Spain effected the electoral process there. I have no doubt that the facts in this article are probably true given BushCo's fueling of Islamic Fundamentalist rage against the US thorugh our war in Iraq. I've heard for every $1 dollar spent on Homeland Security, $3 dollars is being spent on the war in Iraq. Too bad we've been spending 3 times the amount waging war there instead of securing the nation's security to have prevented these al Qaeda cockroaches any chance of getting in here, isn't it?

P.S. Did anyone see the CBS News story tonight about multi-billion dollar corporations getting more money to secure their facilities than most public transportation agencies and cities do? Who says this isn't a CEO presidency?

U.S. Warns of Al Qaeda Threat
Operatives in Country Said to Be Planning Summer Attack

By Susan Schmidt and Dana Priest
Washington Post Staff Writers
Wednesday, May 26, 2004; Page A02


Federal officials have information suggesting that al Qaeda has people in the United States preparing to mount a large-scale terrorist attack this summer, sources familiar with the information said yesterday.

Attorney General John D. Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III intend to hold a joint news conference this afternoon to discuss the threat and to ask Americans to watch for several suspected al Qaeda operatives who may be in the country, officials said.

The concerns are driven by intelligence deemed credible that was obtained about a month ago indicating an attack may be planned between now and Labor Day.

That information dovetails with other intelligence "chatter" suggesting that al Qaeda operatives are pleased with the change in government resulting from the March 11 terrorist bombings in Spain and may want to affect elections in the United States and other countries.
