September, 17, 2006, Al-Qaeda warns Muslims the first time to get out of the US, warning about a "big" attack on New York and Washington.
The new al-Qaeda field commander in Afghanistan is calling for Muslims to leave the U.S. – particularly Washington and New York – in anticipation of a major terror attack to rival Sept. 11, according to an interview by a Pakistani journalist.
Abu Dawood told Hamid Mir, a reporter who has covered al-Qaeda and met with Osama bin Laden, the attack is being coordinated by Adnan el-Shukrijumah and suggests it may involve some form of weapon of mass destruction smuggled across the Mexican border.
Full story here. (Quick note here about the necessity of securing our borders.)
Then September 21, 2006, another story,warning everyone to definitely take these threats seriously.
Abu Dawood told Hamid Mir, a reporter who has covered al-Qaida and met with Osama bin Laden, the attack is being coordinated by Adnan el-Shukrijumah and suggests it may involve some form of weapon of mass destruction smuggled across the Mexican border.
The warning from an al-Qaida field commander in Afghanistan calling for Muslims to leave the U.S. – particularly Washington and New York – in anticipation of a major terror attack to rival Sept. 11, should be taken seriously says the Pakistani journalist who interviewed Abu Dawood.
Hamid Mir, a reporter who has covered al-Qaida and met with Osama bin Laden, told radio talk-show host Glenn Beck yesterday that he, too, had make the mistake of underestimating the terror network in the past.
He said he interviewed bin Laden prior to Sept. 11, 2001, and heard warnings about an attack on the U.S., but discounted them.
Mir took bin Laden more seriously after the bombings of the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, shortly after his first of three meetings with bin Laden – the last coming after 9/11.
Full article about that here.
So, they not only intend to attack, but they also have falsified passports in American names. Fact is, they will never stop trying. People can piss and moan all they want about how it is OUR foreign policy that incites them, yet they cannot blame 9/11 on that, so they need to shut the hell up and stop assigning false reasons to the unreasonable al-qaeda and figure out a way to be of help in this war on terror. Deliberate attempts at dividing the country is not "help".
Which brings us to October 10, 2006- ( Hat Tip to Debbie at Right Truth for this link) I saw this story as I was browsing the web, but got the link from her site.
"Top Qaeda leader urges fighters to hit White House".
Again, a quick note about the inherent danger of thugs like Jong-il having nuclear technology that he is willing to sell to people like al-Qaeda.
The channel said the tape was one-hour long, showing footage of Libi urging fighters to train hard and even to try to acquire nuclear technology.
"You have to get well prepared by starting with exercise, and then you have to learn how to use technology until you are capable of nuclear weapons," he said.
Last but not least we have the report from October 15,2006, repeated in todays article, warning Muslims one last time to get out of the US before the attack which they allege with be during the month of Ramadan (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23.)
All of this brings me to the point of this post. With the admitted mistakes of this administration and I have never said I think every decision has been right, perfection doesn't exist, despite what politicians tell you during election season, but albeit those mistakes, does anyone REALLY trust the Democratic party to face these issues? I don't, not in the least and neither should anyone else.
