Hahah, Terrorists? Don't Make Me Laugh
ABC reports that an Al Qaeda cell
may already be in the United States:
Senior U.S. intelligence officials tell ABC News new intelligence suggests a small al Qaeda cell is on its way to the United States, or may already be here.
The White House has convened an urgent multi-agency meeting for Thursday afternoon to deal with the new threat.
Well, you can imagine the reaction at the liberal blogs. Surely they are talking about how we have to leave the partisanship behind in order to combat this new threat?
Uh, no.Crooks & Liars
What gives Chertoff the right to tell the country that he has a “gut” feeling that we’re going to be hit with a terrorist attack this summer?
Yes, how dare he? Just when everything was going so nice for the Democrats! I question the timing!
This is a calculated move to ratchet up the terror in this country to help Republican candidates—PERIOD. They are far behind in raising money and in all the polls. He should be fired, but of course since he’s being instructed to say these things (sounds like a Cheney/Rove play) he won’t be.
And a poster at Atrios skates pretty close to the thin ice of trutherism
Shouldn't it concern us that Republicans are constantly talking about how people will all wise up when the next terrorist attack at home comes?
I mean, they really seem to be looking forward to it, and they take great delight in the thought that, by God, people will see things differently when it happens.
They relish the thought. They hunger for that terrorist attack they need to save their Party.
I, Not Atrios, think Democrats would be wise to talk on TV about how the last thing we need is to put people in power who have such a stake in having terrorists attack Americans.
Larissa Alexandrovna needs a little schooling
on the definition of summer:
I can easily start with the obvious - we were attacked in the fall, that is, September 2001. So I would think that the fall is "appealing" to "them," whomever they are.
Uh, Larissa, the fall starts on September 21, so September 11 is in the summer.
The Firedogs want to remind us
that any terror attack means a failure of the Iraq war to do what it was supposed to.
The American people can figure out that if there really were a genuine, imminent threat of another attack on US soil it would mean (1) the policy of “fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them here” has both failed and even worse, likely provoked another attack here and (2) it’s foolhardy to have our forces, including much of your National Guard, bogged down in Iraq.
Good to know we're all on the same team here!
