    Default Al-Qaeda ‘certain’ to attack U.S. within months

    Intelligence officials say terror group is intent on ‘a large-scale operation’

    The Obama administration's top intelligence officials on Tuesday described it as "certain" that al-Qaeda or its allies will try to attack the United States in the next six months, and they called for new flexibility in how U.S. officials detain and question terrorist suspects.

    Obama, like Bush has been warned. Will Obama take the warning seriously and be able to stop an attack before it can be carried out or we destine to have another 9/11 incident?

    Well, it seems to me that if nothing happens, the explanation will not be that vigilance succeeded in preventing an attack, but that no attack was tried. If something happens, it will not be that our forces were vigilant but that an attack got through anyway, it will be that warnings were ignored. We will dissect until we find someone or something to blame. The fact is that a determined foe only has to succeed once, no matter how often they try, to be successful. A defender has to succeed every time, no matter how many attempts are made, to be a success. With that as our yardstick, failure is simply a matter of time.

    I'm just wondering how many top level officials and how much money it took to conclude that our sworn enemies will try to attack us??

    Seems like it would be a lot cheaper to have a groundhog come out of a hole and see its shadow to figure that one out.

    I hope Obama is taking the threat seriously, and properly prioritizing security initiatives.

    BWAAAHAHAHAHAAA!


    I guess Joe Biden was off on his prediction by about a year...

    Sarcasm aside, I do pray that we avoid being attacked again. I promise, that if Obama stops it, I will say something good about him.

    My understanding is the special task force that is supposed to head up interogations is still looking for an office, since Obama created it after he was sworn in. I sure hope they are going to move faster now?

    Hard to get infromation from terrorist when we read them Maranda Rights right after they get arrested!

    Shame on Obama and Holder for weakening our ability to gain information in the fight against terror.

    You won't find me defending Bush43. The fact of the matter is that we should have learned how to handle these people by now. Apparently not.
