DEBKAfile Intelligence Sources: America Braces for Second Suicide Terrorist Wave Between 30 and 50 Islamic Zealots Believed Standing by to Strike US Strategic Targets Beware the Second Wave

14 September: DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report that Islamic militants under the command of Saudi multimillionaire terrorist Osama Bin Laden, the radical Egyptian Jihadi Islami, Iraqi military intelligence and other Middle East groups, stand poised for a second wave of horrendous attacks in America. An estimated 30 to 50 suicide-killers are waiting inside the US for their orders to strike. This time, while again aiming for the US President, the White House and Capitol Hill, they will also go for a broad spectrum of what they consider strategic targets, such as airports, oil fields and oil installations, sensitive military and intelligence facilities, warships and carriers. The last were indeed ordered out to sea shortly after the first assaults on Tuesday.

Aware that flushing out the terrorists in waiting, many of whom may be US nationals, is akin to finding a needle in a haystack, US leaders quickly resorted to a short cut. Two days ago, they turned to a number of world leaders, including Europeans, the Russian president and Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, to request a pooling of intelligence. They were asked to share every scrap of information they had on international terror movements, in support of the US effort to eradicate the blight. Quick crosschecking between the services strongly confirmed the second wave thesis. It has kept US security services at the highest level of suspense they have ever known.

Therefore the FBI’s dragnet on the trail of the conspiracy behind he deadly airliner suicide attacks on America are moving fast, so that the country is not caught off guard again. US security authorities are concerned to strengthen the two lines of defense against terrorist attack: the first-line barrier, advance intelligence, and the second-line defense, security. Both broke down when New York’s landmark the World Trade Center, and America’s military nerve center, the Pentagon in Washington, were crushingly assaulted by suicidal terrorists last Tuesday.

Further updating follows later today

Maybe I'm crazy, but the way I see it is that the quickest defense against terrorists--whose main weapon at the moment is plane hijacking--is to seal off the cockpits from the rest of the plane, with bank vault heavy doors, if necessary, and give the pilots orders to not open it during flight for any reason. Then assign armed air marshals, again, as they did in the 1960s and 1970s, to the passenger part of the plane for protection against hijackers.

If the hijackers do not have access to the cockpit, it's only logical that they cannot possibly hijack a plane.

The next attack on America will be germ warfare. There's plenty of information on the internet clearly pointing to this form of terrorism. No one ever thought we would be attacked via air by our own planes. No one is thinking about germ warfare at the moment and the threat is real. May God help us all.
