Intelligence committee heads: Terror threat rising
WASHINGTON (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!
