Intelligence committee heads: Terror threat rising

AchmedWASHINGTON (AP) – The terrorism threat against the United States is increasing and Americans aren’t as safe as they were a year or two ago, the leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said there are more terrorist groups than ever, with more sophisticated and hard-to-detect bombs. The California Democrat said “there is huge malevolence out there.”

Rep. Mike Rogers said there’s enormous pressure on U.S. intelligence services “to get it right, to prevent an attack.”

The Michigan Republican said that job is getting more difficult because al-Qaida is changing, with more affiliates around the world. He said those are groups that once operated independently of but have now joined with al-Qaida. SOURCE

There is nothing that scares me more than the idea that America may be facing increased threats of terrorism than what we see right now; the United States facing those threats while in the hands of a man that can only be described as an anti-American socialist that will give in to any enemy of this nation, not only give in but give them anything they want in the process.

And when Dianne Feinstein is the one sounding the alarm, well, does she not realize that this makes her sound a lot like an opponent of Barack Hussein Obama and the general idea held by the Democrats that everything done under his regime has been fairy dust, rainbows and unicorn farts?

Rogers also said terrorists are adopting the idea that “maybe smaller events are OK” and still might achieve their goals.

“That makes it exponentially harder for our intelligence services to stop an event like that from happening,” he said in a joint interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” that aired Sunday.

Case in point; the attack of the Boston Marathon.

An apparently small group, 2 brothers that subscribed to the Muslim faith that held a great hatred for all things American, were able to engage in a reign of TERROR on the Boston area by exploding their improvised explosive devices during the race, killing, dismembering and wounding innocent people.

Although neither lawmaker offered specifics about what led them to their conclusions, Feinstein spoke generally of “a real displaced aggression in this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that is that the West is responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing that’s going to solve this is Islamic Sharia law and the concept of the caliphate.” The caliphate is an Islamic state led by a religious and political leader, or caliph, considered a successor of the prophet Mohammed and who governs by Sharia law.

Maybe I need more rest, maybe I need to have my medications adjusted, I don’t know what to do exactly, but this is the 1st time I have ever heard anything from Feinstein that made any sense whatsoever.

Feinstein is a Jew; I don’t say that in a hateful way, I have Jewish friends and they are as surprised at her uber-libber ways as I am, and I am NOT Jewish.

Maybe a REAL threat has been discovered, a threat against Israel perhaps, or maybe she finally had enough of Barack Hussein Obama and his obvious LOVE of all things Muslim as he throws Israel to the wolves over his *deal* with Iran as he tells Netanyahu: Can you chill out on complaining about my Iran deal?

Rogers said al-Qaida groups have changed their means of communication as a result of leaks about U.S. surveillance programs, making it harder to detect potential plots in the early planning stages.

“We’re fighting amongst ourselves here in this country about the role of our intelligence community that it is having an impact on our ability to stop what is a growing number of threats. And so we’ve got to shake ourselves out of this pretty soon and understand that our intelligence services are not the bad guys,” Rogers said.

Rogers is correct; we ARE fighting amongst ourselves, and in so many instances, it’s over the most trivial of matters. Americans, ALL Americans need to get their act together and stand in solidarity as we boldly proclaim that political correctness is DEAD and that Islam is the enemy of all free people everywhere, be they Christians, Jews or anything NOT Islamic.

Pay attention America; it’s not First Baptist or Grace Lutheran that are blowing people up!

    “…So We the government are going to disarm you so you can’t defend yourselves because you are too stupid to carry a gun. Only elected officials are smart enough to be armed… Call 911. That’s what it’s there for…”

    Just this morning there was a news report that Al Qaida on the Arabian Peninsula was asking Muslims in America to rise up, attack and destroy America. That being said, it is interesting that your post today supports the news report.

    Take away our guns?? Not a chance! We will be the only line of defense for the U.S. since BHO won’t bother! Me-thinks there are many, many of us out there that are ready and willing to defend our America, no matter our age!!

    So far America is not paying attention. Proof of that is the re-election of Barack Obama and Keith Ellison being elected to Congress. Let’s just open the door and welcome Al Qaida in with open arms.

  4. I AM 9-1-1, and we can’t get on the scene faster than those persons — who are ALREADY ARMED — can.

    PERIOD.

    Now wait just a minute here. I thought al Qaida was supposed to be on the run and nearly dead. Isn’t that the narrative we have been hearing from the Obama administration? Whatever happened to that tall tale?

    It is somewhat odd that Senator Feinstein would be so open in her worries about radical Islam. Makes me wonder if she doesn’t know something she can’t tell the rest of us.

    One final note, you are exactly right. The liberals seem to want to insist we do not discriminate against Muslims in America. While I hold no desire to discriminate, it is also imperative that we recognize who the enemy is. As you said, it isn’t the First Baptist Church that is blowing up innocent civilians. It’s time we stopped beating around the bush about that.

  6. BobF says:

    The Russians warned us about the two brothers and we chose to ignore the warnings.

    Doing a little internet research on what English, German, French, Spanish, and the American intelligence community you will come up with about 7% of Muslims believe in Radical Islam. Now, 7% isn’t a lot. Seven percent of a dollar is only 7 cents…not much. Now, 7% is a number nobody should have to worry about, right? With approximately 1.57 billion Muslims in the world, that 7% comes out to close to 109 million Muslims. One hundred nine million Muslims believe the same way the 9/11 hijackers do. That’s over one-third the population of the United States. I don’t know of any standing army in the world that even comes close to that number. 109,000,000 that believe that dying in the process of killing you will gain them eternal paradise.
    So, when you hear people say that only a small percentage of Muslims are radical, remember that small percentage equates to over 109,000,000.

      Approximately 2,595,000 Muslims living in America
      13% of Muslims in America believe suicide bombing can be justified.
      337,000 Muslims in America believe suicide bombing can be justified.

      The percentage of Muslims believing suicide bombing can be justified was reported in the Huffington Post; of all places.

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ali-eteraz/us-muslims-and-suicide-bo_b_49286.html

      There are some sources that put the Muslim population in America as high as 7,000,000. That makes that 13% even more of a concern.

    Good morning Fred, I just read yesterdays post. One of the first sites I read is American Thinker and there is an interesting article about immigration. It seems there is a lot of noise about the so many illegal aliens from Mexico that no attention is paid to the rest of this 1900 page bill that defines new quotas for legal immigration including the expansion of immigration from muslim countries. This includes accelerated grants of full citizenship for muslims. I wish I had the computer skills required to link the article here, but you might take a look at it. Forget about Cantor’s “Let’s do it for the kids”.

    Hi Fred, yes things are getting more crazy by the day! It’s as though the phony ghetto rat soiling our white house is trying to do as much damage as possible before having to leave his comfy quarters(white house)! I have been telling my contacts for several years now, that “political correctness” is going to destroy America. Couple that with the imbeciles who are “in charge” of making policy & you get the sewer(government)we are experiencing daily. Rather than getting serious about curtailing the constant demands for changing our way of life to suit the degenerates & goat humping morons who have invaded our country, the ignorant bastards in the senate & congress are playing with themselves & screwing America! Have a look at what is taking place in our northern state, it’s just like what’s going on in France & the UK. Here’s the link…. http://tinyurl.com/mbh3ae7 Wishing you well… Al

    One can only wonder if Obama in his on way, would prefer to see an attack. His dream of total control, complete with the FEMA camps must have him salivating. Martial law, what could be better for this regime. Suspension of Habeas corpus. I say, our gal Feinstein knows much.

    Truck Carrying Radioactive Material Stolen in Mexico
    Theft of cobalt-60 prompts fears of a dirty bomb

    (Newser) – A truck laden with “dangerous” radioactive material used to fight cancer was stolen on Monday (12-02-13) near Mexico City, says the International Atomic Energy Agency, per the BBC. “At the time the truck was stolen, the source was properly shielded. However, the source could be extremely dangerous to a person if removed from the shielding, or if it was damaged,” the UN agency says. The truck was carrying cobalt-60, which the IAEA director has warned could be used in a dirty bomb.

    The white Volkswagen Worker was ferrying the cobalt-60 between a Tijuana hospital and a radioactive waste storage site when armed men stole it; the theft occurred at a gas station in Tepojaco. Mexican and US officials are on the case, ABC News reports, and the IAEA is offering help.

    Radioactive Truck Thieves ‘Will, Without a Doubt, Die’
    Expert says they are doomed
    12-05-13

    (Newser) – Mexican troops and federal police kept a nighttime watch on a rural field where thieves abandoned a stolen shipment of highly radioactive cobalt-60, while officials began planning the delicate task of recovering the dangerous material. And while officials say a nearby town is not in danger, the thieves themselves are likely doomed. “The person or people who took this out are in very great risk of dying,” says a physicist with the National Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards, adding that the normal survival rate would be between one and three days. His quote in the Washington Post is even more explicit: “They will, without a doubt, die.”

    That’s because the recovered cobalt-60 was no longer in its protective casing; the physicist believes the thieves simply may have been curious as to what was inside and opened it. (The working theory is that they weren’t aware of the material, and were just after the 2007 Volkswagen cargo vehicle, which had a moveable platform and crane.) Juan Eibenschutz, director general of the commission, said late yesterday that it could take at least two days to safely get the material into a secure container and transport it to a waste site. There is no word so far of anyone reporting to area hospitals with radiation exposure; the physicist says those who exposed themselves to the pellets could not contaminate others.
