Just weeks after the failed car bombing of New York’s Times Square, the Department of Homeland Security says “the number and pace of attempted attacks against the United States over the past nine months have surpassed the number of attempts during any other previous one-year period.” That grim assessment is contained in an unclassified DHS intelligence memo prepared for various law enforcement groups, which says terror groups are expected to try attacks inside the United States with “increased frequency.”
CNN obtained a copy of the document, dated May 21, which goes on to warn, “we have to operate under the premise that other operatives are in the country and could advance plotting with little or no warning.”
The intelligence note says recent attempted terror attacks have used operatives and tactics which made the plots hard to detect.
The document specifically mentions the cases of Afghan national Najibullah Zazi, who pleaded guilty in February to plotting attacks on New York’s subways, and Times Square bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-American.
Well, I suppose that this has been coming for years now. Be vigilant, be wary, be aware that places like airports, and I happen to work at an airport, large public gatherings, sporting events, etc. are targets. Be prepared, as best you can, to defend yourself, and your fellow citizens, do not stop going out, do not live in fear, never cower, but as I said be vigilant.
Remember, we are Americans. We do not run, we are the greatest people, living in the greatest nation on earth, and we must never forget that we are. Radical Islamists who would do us harm do not understand, I do not think, that the very last thing they won’t to do is to wake the lion that is the American patriot. To attack us is to unite us. And to unite us, is to sign your own death warrant Jihadists.
