SEVEN (7) Terrorist Attacks ON U.S. Soil SINCE 9/11 (Feeling Safer Now?)
Edited on Thu Dec-22-05 08:03 PM by berni_mccoy
Seventeen DEAD, Seventeen Wounded in attacks on U.S. Soil since 9/11.

I'm tired of hearing freeps say the Patriot Act is working and that spying on Americans will stop terrorism. Let's look at the facts:


1. September 18th, 2001 -- Anthrax Attack # 1: 2 KILLED, 10 wounded (source: 1)

2. October 9th, 2001 -- Anthrax Attack #2: 3 KILLED, 7 wounded (source: 1)

3. Fall, 2001 -- Jewish Defense League plot to blow up the King Fahd Mosque in Culver City, California, foiled.

4. December, 2001 -- Richard Reid, attempting to destroy American Airlines Flight 63, is subdued by passengers and flight attendants before he could detonate his shoe bomb. (source: 3)

5. July 4, 2002 -- An Egyptian gunman opens fire at an El Al ticket counter in Los Angeles International Airport: 3 KILLED. (source: 3)

6. October 2002 -- D.C. Sniper Attacks: 10 KILLED (I was THERE DURING THE ATTACKS) (source: 3) TO ANY FREEPER WHO SAYS THIS WASN'T TERRORISM: Malvo was sentenced to DEATH because it was an ACT OF TERRORISM.

7. December 2005 -- Bombing of Mosque in Cincinati OH (no killed or wounded) (source: 4)

2. Prolly tons more.
You can add this to the list:

More than two dozen religious and community leaders condemned Tuesday's bombing of the Islamic Association of Cincinnati's mosque...

Not only a likely terror attack, but probably instigated as a result of the "war" on terror.
