Six terror cells feared active in U.S. (MSNBC Article 12/24) : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

WERE FOLLOWING leads in virtually every major American city, said one senior federal law enforcement U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The sources said they were tracking as many as five or six interrelated terrorist cells operating in the United States, but stressed  as they have since terrorism fears escalated earlier this month  that they have no hard evidence that attacks are planned.

But they said unconfirmed intelligence reports led them to believe that attacks are possible. ________________________________________

Good one Spider.

I'm much more concerned about the folks "Big Bother" doesn't catch. You can literally "drive a truck" through the security on US borders (18 wheeler, for example, full of illegals from Mexico).

I cannot help but remember that this President fired 125 Tomahawk missiles at ben Laden's camps all over Afgainistan on the eve of the vote in the house concerning whether or not he should be impeached.

He did not get the bad guy, but you can bet he REALLY pi**ed him off.

I can not help but remember that this President started bombing in Kosovo on the eve of the vote in the Senate concerning whether or not to hold him accountable in the impeachment.

Do you suppose that Milosovic feels any more friendly towards this country than ben Laden?

Both operations stink to high heaven to have been 'convienence' operations timed to protect a decadent President. Do you suppose that these appearances fan the flames of terrorism?

Tactical and Strategic stupidity from a man who lied to avoid serving.

I would be very, very surprised if ONLY six entities were motivated and capable enough to field activities against the US. Increase that by maybe a factor of three or more, perhaps.
