MSNBC reported some new info regarding the current terror threat. Here are some of the most interesting points mentioned:

"U.S. intelligence agencies had gathered detailed information about the plan, in which they said al-Qaida operatives would hijack foreign airliners and fly them into targets in the United States. In some instances, the intelligence is so detailed as to include specific flight numbers, they said." NBC reports that US intelligence believes the operation was approved by Osama himself.

"For example, the officials said, al-Qaida seems particularly interested in Tappahannock, Va., a tiny town of 2,016 people with no military base or major infrastructure. Such an attack would be intended to generate widespread fear that no one was safe, even in small rural towns, they said. "

Well i think they're learning.  Always said they should go after a "low-profile" area to scare the regular joe.

I can hear those USAF & ANG fighter jocks now:

I heard they were going to sneak into an office building and cut all of the erasers off of the pencils.

From my cold, dead hands!

This is a relief.  I thought you meant that MSNBC was threatening terrorism against us.

I'm afraid that it doesn't end there.


I heard they were going to steal some undies off of my neighbors clothesline.

...at least, that is what I told the officer.

Since I live in the area, I will say that military flight patterns have been significantly heavier over the past 2 weeks and definitley stepped up this week over last.

I hope, think and pray that our guys are ready if a heavy comes into the area low and slow.

Granted the area is generally rural, but there are other things that are close enough nearby that would raise some concerns.

There may or may not be an international conspiracy to serve red wine with fish.

I can neither confirm nor deny.
