Director of US National Intelligence: Al Qaeda Still a Threat to US

I happen to believe that national intelligence under the Bush administration is an oxymoron, but Mike McConnell claims that Al Qaeda is ramping up its recruitment and training efforts with an eye to another attack on US soil.

Since I believe 9/11 was a US government conspiracy, I tend to take these scare tactics by our government with several grains of salt. Intelligence sources insist that Al Qaeda operatives are being shipped out of Itan to wreak havoc, however.

This is why the CIA needs to be dismantled. Bin Laden is their creation. He's also dead. (Bhutto said so in an interview 2 weeks before she was assassinated. I trust her word on it.) Our government has hurt us more than any terrorists can by legislating the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to be null and void.

I don't know who to believe . . . so I don't believe any of them. Buy local.

I have enough local crime to deal with. I voted yesterday.....I fully realize the local hispanics love "MallMart" because they have jobs, even tho they don't pay much....the hispanics don't think much of themselves, either. So you know who they voted for, here in New Mexico.

Most of them don't know where the Middle East is because they don't have an education.

Get ready for the 'false flag' gig, coming soon to a city near you! I am so sick to death of BushCo's fear mongering. I am sick to death that this Madministration continues to get away with high crimes and misdemeanors. I am sick to death of his cronies raping, pillaging and plundering Iraq and Afghanistan. I am sick to death of them resurrecting Bin Ladin whenever they need to keep us cowed by way of 'new' tapes or videos. I am not cowed, I will not be cowed and I will NOT live in fear.

Yes, Cate, 9/11 WAS an inside job...I knew that instinctively the day it happened and there is nothing that this administration or its henchmen can ever do or say to change my mind.

Uhoud is correct. Bin Ladin and Al Qaeda were created by the CIA. The CIA recruited him, the CIA trained him and the CIA supplied him and the Mujahadeen with arms to fight the Russians. When that fiasco ended we cut him and all those under him loose and this is what we deal with now.

If you think our own government would never murder its own citizens to achieve its own ends, think again. Our government does what we think only other governments do, every single day people. WAKE UP!!!!!

The day I realized the TRUTH of JFK's Assassination....., is the day, I knew this world was already owned by the beast. That was many many year ago. I was yelling Wake Up, at least, a decade ago. This nation, slept too long, it is too late, in my humble opinion. I believe in many of these "conspiracy theories" that mankind has generated, as TRUE. However, I also know to believe 9/11 is not one of them.

We must be careful as angry citizens to not let our emotions of rage obscure the theories within the world...
Many of you are very correct Bush and the CIA have caused the terrorist to focus EVEN MORE of their hatred at our nation. They want us DESTROYED, now. They didn't before, they do now. They just hated us before, but, thanks to Bush and the CIA, we have bought ourselves a one-way ticket.

You think any one of those candidates aren't going to send those troops right back to Pakistan and Afghanistan to relieve and support those troops? You darn skippy they are, no matter who it is...
We have been soldiers ants for years. I do what I can to help the suffering, tortured, and dying, today, so somehow we can live a better tommorrow.

Walk the beach, smell a flower, watch a sunset....
A higher power will step in to stop mankind's insanity. Today, if every human being knew what how much advancement the beast has made in science and technology, at the expense of human lives, there would be mass chaos. We don't want to know the truth. We are breathing it, eatting it, and drinking it...., and we have been for a long time.

I am serprised the False Flag has not already happened&since i have seen some quietly enacted,actively done,"drills",that pertant to this senario,i do not care to envision just which city,or part of city they are thinking of picking. False Flag is not a false event to those it emcompasses.
Even if no part of our laws where beingfallowed,getting such laws on to the law books is one of the hardest parts,so being ther already does count for something& they can be pointed to both to show what should be done& what they are not doing,trying to hold "certain humans" to some positive standard,& where those standards still need work,then note & change them properly&with broad common concent.

Even if it was the U S doing all this then,NOW,the U S & others does have something to worry about& keep watch upon,but this does not justify what has been done to U S laws or it's people.
This ?gov,as opposed to the American people,which some do not note as any difference in, is a major danger to it's own people as well as others.

Anyone who believes this, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell them. Don't they realize this is a tried and true tactic of the White House ,to rev up the" terrorist" retoric whenever there is an election on the'll see, there will be more and more alarms sounding as we get closer to election day . "The terrorosts are coming,The terrorists are coming" They might as well add."everyone go out and vote for McCain 'cause he is the only one who can keep us safe." Believe me you'll be surprised how many people who will do just that.

Noted. I, too, have been been persuaded by intelligent journalism that presents documented sources that 911 was an inside job, just as so many atrocities have been. I recommend to you without reservation a site called The Talboo Report. John-Michael Talboo is a C2 member as is his mother. When you read the report, view the videos, the gorge will rise in your throat for the assassins in office and their operatives. Hell, no, I don't believe anything National Intelligence (yes, Cate, an oxymoron if there ever was one) says, and I have eliminated "grains of salt" from my diet. Raises the blood pressure dangerously high. We must not worry about terrorists coming...we must worry about the ones already here. I do not think whoever is elected can keep us safe for the fox has been in the henhouse for a long, long time. Generations. Thank you, Cate.

Got a link to that report Carolyn? I'd like to read it please. What's a little more gorge and bile for my daily diet! Sorry to crack jokes and make light dear, I just have no more illusions. I swallowed the Red Pill decades ago and I am awake.

Noted and TY!! First problem I see here is Director of US National Intelligence? If this is our intelligence, I do not want to see our un-intelligent, I think maybe they should change the names to fit. We know the truth and I guess they consider themselves intelligent? Oh yea, they are slick in my book! The day the towers went down, I was ready to fight!! Then my "eyes" where opened to the truth... and I am even madder than I was and want to fight but it is not with a country that rides camels. When I see "wet, soggy camels going downtown with 50 cal machine guns on their backs, I will fight them.........

Tahney you have that right ! I watched the video in which Bhutto said Bin Laden was dead and who killed him .Maybe that is the reason she was assinated ,so the world wouldn't know the lie Bush has been trying to feed us !
When I was very young our mother told us girls the story about the little boy who cried wolf so many times that when the wolf really did come nobody believed him .A tale she used to stress the importants of telling the truth which evidently Bush and Co have never learned. I only hope his lies won't cost us one day when the wolf is really here and we don't believe it because of all of Bush's lies.
I don't believe his latest lie either !

Terrorists, it would be a joke if it wasn't so sick and depraved. The reason another false flag hasn't happened(although they almost NEED one) and hopefully won't is because of us and others like us spreading the word. 33% or so of the country believes someting stinks with 911 and the Gov't. Another staged 911 wouldn't go over to well right now because their polls that we have taken show too many people are aware or suspicious, so they will wait, thats why they didn't go into Iran as of yet. We must remain vigilant and keep spreading the WORD!! If we stop pushing them with activism, etc. we will become subject to more loss of freedoms. We have them on the spot right now, but they are patient and smart so we must not drop our guard. They are not going to give us anything back that they have already took , we must fight to regain our lost freedoms. WE are building momemtum....................Thx Cate!!

Thursday February 7, 2008, 9:52 pm is not exactly secret anymore,but not exactly well knowen either,but they are not really concerend as with suitcase sized units they can nt only shut down totlay whole electronic systems like tv,radio,all airport communitactions,military comm.cb.ham,uhf.vhf,etc at once,they can & have used these systems then againest there own people. These are fully able toreprogram systems,even hardened systems too,so,be afraid,be very much afriad!

Noted! I believe that Al Qaeda' members have tripled since we attacked Iraq. I am very distrustful of the Bush Bunch but I think most people are. They use these colored alerts to scare the hell out of people in order to keep them in line. What a crock! I left a national airport where they were repeating a yellow alert all over the airport. I arrived in an International Airport where absolutely nothing about an alert was even spoken of. Go figure.
