........... are you KIDDING ME? If I here ONE MORE PERSON SAY THAT!!!!!!


The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the operation in Iraq resulted in two people being taken into custody. They said a third was being sought.

Information about the threat, the officials said, came to light last weekend from an intelligence source who told federal authorities that the three men in Iraq had planned to meet with other operatives in New York.

One official said the group would number about a dozen. Another official said the total was closer to 20 people involved. The men planned to use strollers, briefcases and packages to hide a number of bombs that they planned to detonate on the subways.

"It was a conspiracy involving more than a dozen people aimed at delivering a number of devices into the subway," one of the officials said.

Pentagon: Bin Laden deputy complains about money, Iraq tactics
U.S. says it obtained intercepted letter

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- An intercepted letter from Osama bin Laden's deputy to the al Qaeda leader in Iraq complains that the terrorist network is short of cash and faces defeat in Afghanistan, a Pentagon spokesman says.

The United States obtained a recent letter that appears to be from Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's No. 2 figure, to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, outlining both the strategy and concerns of the terrorist network, said Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman.

In the letter, al-Zawahiri warns that some of the tactics currently employed by the insurgency, including the slaughtering of hostages and the suicide bombings of Muslim civilians, may risk alienating the "Muslim masses," Whitman said Thursday.

Reading from a summary of the letter, Whitman said al-Zawahiri concedes that al Qaeda has lost many key leaders, is resigned to defeat in Afghanistan, and that its lines of communication and funding sources have been seriously disrupted. Al-Zawahiri includes a plea for financial support, indicating he is strapped for money, Whitman said.

He could not say when the letter was intercepted or when authorities believe it might have been written.

The lengthy communication was said to detail the strategy of Muslim extremists to push the United States out of Iraq and establish an Islamic state that could expand its form of governance to neighboring countries, Whitman said.

Senior U.S. officials told CNN that the 6,000-word letter is believed to have been written within days of the July 7 terror attacks in London. Only parts of the letter have been made public, the officials said.

The decision to confirm the existence of the letter came after an incomplete and partially inaccurate version was leaked to news organizations, the senior officials said.

Earlier Thursday, President Bush made similar points about the terror network in what aides billed as a "major speech" on the war on terrorism, which was launched after al Qaeda's September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington.

Bush repeated his long-standing contention that Iraq had become the central front in that conflict, and said a U.S. withdrawal from that currently unpopular conflict would leave behind a country ruled by bin Laden and al-Zarqawi.

"We will not stand by as a new set of killers dedicated to the destruction of our own country seizes control of Iraq by violence," Bush said.

Why can't people THINK!!!

Read between the lines people! READ BETWEEN THE LINES!!!

Do you really think this letter was really written by Al-Queda? It's obviously a plant by Karl Rove.

I have a very good source in south Florida that tells me that Karl Rove wrote the letter to fake people out. The only problem was he needed a way to plant that letter in Iraq for special forces to find.

Being the brilliant mind that Rove is, he decided to create hurrcane Katrina using the HHM®, then folded the letter into a paper airplane and threw it into Katrina. His plan would be to guide the remnants of Katrina over to Iraq where the paper airplane would land.

The problem was, he didn't quite have the angle folded right on the wings. It was a little too steep, so the paper airplane/"Al-Queda" letter just did a big loop-de-loop and landed in Texas. Are you starting to ge the picture now? *cough*RITA*cough*

Rita was obviously formed next to finish what Katrina couldn't. Rita picked the paper airplane/"Al-Queda" letter up and carried it in the upper level atmosphere over to Iraq.

Anyone with half a brain can figure this one out. Plus, it just PROVES that Bush hates black people. Think about it. The pieces all fit.

I thought the war was because our taxes are too high !?!?!?!? Where did this terror thing come from?? No buildings where I live have blown up.....there can't be any terrorists here. People don't see the big picture unless it immediately affects them. They tell you it's all hog wash until someone they know dies or a bomb goes off 2 blocks away. Then all of sudden why haven't we done anything to to prevent this becomes the new mantra cry. For those who doen't beleive the war in Iraq is becasue of terror what are you thinking.....Bush got bored and said hell lets go pick a fight and see what happens. Educate yourself and sepereate yourself from the masses of sheeple.

I just don't get some of the people i talk to about Iraq. When they tell me that Iraq has nothing to do with terror &/or that we should not have invaded a country that has not attacked us, i always say the same two things. Both of which they can never answer back to.


1. If Iraq has nothing to do with terror, why are the insurgents/terrorists fighting so damn hard to get us out? Even more so than in Afghnistan where the entire world knew that Al-Qaeda was based.

2. If we would have invaded Afghnistan in 1999, two years before 9/11 the same people who are against the war in Iraq, would be saying: "Why did we invade a country that hasn't attacked us?"


I have yet to receive a valid response to either of these statements.

Don't sweat it, it's the liberal go to argument for everything. After countering all of my liberal co-workers arguments, they always say,"well there's still Iraq".

Iraq is the war on terror. Every terrorist in the world who is able is heading to Iraq to collect thier 72 virgins cortesy of the USof A.

Us or them; that is what the liberals don't comprehend.......................right now.

Bring it
