from Drudge....

GERTZ: Al Qaeda seen planning for 'spectacular' attack; Intelligence agencies think danger is high to Inauguration Day... Developing...



this seems like a very likely time to attack.
I wouldn't really mind an inauguration held at The Lincoln Memorial or wherever, if it meant disrupting something real.

I mean, if they moved the Inauguration somewhere besides the Whitehouse at the last minute, based on specific threats, to safegaurd the incoming President.

Damn... even Al Qaeda is conceding that Bush will win the Election!

Hold the Inauguration in Cheyenne Mountain, I seriously doubt Al-Queda could even scratch the Granite there.

Hmm.. inaugural attack..

Nope. Still not worth electing Kerry.

There is always the issue of not letting it affect our lives, too much.
And things going on as planned.
But damn, imagine something bad happening during a Presidential Inauguration.

I could be wrong, but I believe the inauguration is held at the Capitol Building, followed by a procession to the White House. Also, I think that can be secured pretty well.

My guess is that if Al Qaeda is planning anything, it’ll be before the election in hopes of influencing it.

That said, the White House was obviously a target before, and no doubt will continue to be one for the indefinite future.

" Intelligence officials say a key figure in al Qaeda's North American operations is Adnan Shukrijumah, who is being sought by the FBI for the past several years.
One official said Shukrijumah recently was seen in Mexico and earlier had been in Canada near a university with a nuclear reactor, leading to concerns that he was seeking radioactive material for a radiological bomb.
The Mexican newspaper Proceso, quoting Mexican officials, reported earlier this month that Shukrijumah was being sought in northeastern Mexico after being tracked to Sonora in August. "


Interesting...

Ah, that would make sense. I just didn't make the connection before.

... We're living in a society bent on instant gratification. Everything is now, now, now. Patience is a lost virtue in America. One thing President Bush stated early one in this war was that this was going to be a long fight, that the fight will be all over the globe and it will be unconventional. I'm old enough to remember what patience means. All good things come in time.

... We'll root out these terrorists. They didn't just pop up over night. Someday, my wish is that no formal organization will realize any benefit or value in bringing destruction to American soil. Knowing all the while, that as they're promoting the act of terrorism, the US Marines are on there way over to their homeland to smash everything they loved and stood for. It's call deterrence. And to earn that respect, it will take some patience.

Oh, as for assasinating Presidents:

Kill Bush, you get President Cheney

Kill Bush & Cheney you get President Hastert

Bush, Cheney & Hastert = President Rumsfeld

Any of those prospects look 'good' for the badguys?

I don't think so....

Good point.
But, I think you give our enemies too much credit.
They are just like Democrats: anyone but Bush.

We know that our enemy is living among us and planning to kill a shitload of us again!! What is the next step? Why in the hell are we going to sit around and wait for them to move. Round em up and shake out the bad guys. Seal the borders until we regain control.

They won't get within a mile of Bush...c'mon, you terrorist fucktards...BRING...IT!!!

I was thinkin, you know what would be great. Let Bush lose, let the libs defeat him and have their way. Let the next 4 years go to complete shit. Let their be terrorist attacks with no reprocussion on our behalf. Let their be suicide bombings, liberals parading for peace and protesting to give them what they want so they'll leave us alone. Then 3 years from now when America is on it's last string, about to fall, let George come back and run again. Let him prove that all the liberal hate towards him was wrong. Let him prove how much better off we were when he was in office and let him bring America back. His campaign platform should cosist of 1 priority. Ridding the earth of each and every single muslim in the world. A terrorist muslim or a peaceful one, they are all the same. The terrorists kill, while the peaceful ones show their support with silence. No troops besides air force pilots and the a few battleships will be needed because we are not going in to liberate, we are going in to destroy. We don't want peace with muslims anymore. Peace with muslims has not worked since the beginning of time. I could deal with Bush for another 4 years, hell I wouldn't mind if he stayed in office for then next 20 until we can solve this problem.

"developing on drudge"

if this is considered "developing" news, then drudge is waaaaaaaaaaaay behind the curve...

it doesnt take a rocket scientist to realize that from a terrorists viewpoint, anytime immediately prior to the election or during the inauguration itself would be an outstanding choice for an attack...

thats our media, buying and selling fear...

Problem is, Dumbacrats have historically thrown our military into a shit storm with not as much as a shovel. Seems they are always willing to use them but cut the shit out of the numbers and equipment.

Just my take.

Semper Fi!
