Thankful for No Terror Attacks since 9/11
We were reminded again this past week of Al-Qaeda and their plans for killing as many people as before on 9/11 if not more in 2003. Whatever the reason for the plan being called off, if it was by Al-Qaeda or their organization having knowledge that our government was aware of their plans, that we do not know for sure. Don’t forget they are determined and are continuing to plot to kill us, these evil people are full of hate and their mission is to kill. These radical Islamic killers live and breathe to bring death to the infidel and that is we the people.
According to the new book that was released Sunday and excerpts on Time magazine’s web site stated OBL’s deputy in 2003 called off releasing deadly gas into New York’s subway. It also stated U.S. officials received intelligence that these terrorist operatives were 45 days away from day zero.
Our armed forces have arrested and killed terrorists and have confiscated tons of documents, computers, hard drives, journals, maps, weapons, intelligence of all forms from raids, prisoners, informants and many other sources, etc. and that should be remembered and acknowledged. Mentioned in the book, plans of this attack was on a computer hard drive of a Bahraini jihadist arrested in Feb 2003.
Excerpts from News Max
The informant said the operatives had planned to use a small, easily concealed device to release hydrogen cyanide into multiple subway cars.Another excerpt from the article......
The easy-to-make device, called "the mubtakkar," meaning "invention" in Arabic or "initiative" in Farsi, represented a breakthrough in weapons technology that "was the equivalent of splitting the atom," Suskind writes in his book. All previous attempts to use the deadly gas, similar to that used in Holocaust-era gas chambers, in mass attacks had failed.
According to the report, President Bush was shown a model of the weapon in March 2003 and ordered alerts sent through the U.S. government. When intelligence arrived that al-Zawahri had called off the attack, Bush worried that something worse was in the works, Suskind writes.We all know that our chances of having another attack is almost a sure thing, but I can sleep at night knowing that our President is our Commander in Chief and is committed to fighting these terrorists and doing whatever it takes to keep us safe.
At least two of Suskind's sources remembered Bush saying, "This is bad enough. What does calling this off say about what else they're planning? ... What could be the bigger operation Zawahri didn't want to mess up?" the author said.
"What has been concluded for the most part is this: al-Qaida's thinking is that a second-wave attack should be more destructive and more disruptive than 9/11," Suskind told the magazine in an interview.
