'No sign of US entry' for terror plot

2011-09-10 20:13

Washington - Senior US officials say there's no evidence that anyone linked to al-Qaeda has entered the country to carry out an attack on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The officials insisted on anonymity to discuss the investigation.

Police and FBI agents remain on alert as investigators look for proof of a plot against Washington or New York.

Since Wednesday, counterterrorism officials have chased a tip that al-Qaeda may have sent three men to detonate a car bomb. At least two of those men could be US citizens.

By Saturday, there was still no intelligence backing that up and officials continued to question the validity of the initial tip.

      No sign of US entry.....hello, they could be in there already!! How sad and scary to live your life like that, not knowing if you will be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      Even scarier living your life believing whatever you are spoonfed, never questioning, never reasoning, never wondering. It is not wrong to seek the truth, only logical - and so - it is not the spoon that bends, but your mind.

      There will be a major new "terrorist" event, likely within the next couple of days. It will be the creation of Luciferian Neocons within the highest ranks of US government. Their objective will be two fold 1) the extension of the war into Iran and Syria, a war that they need now to cover up multiple problems all relating to the meltdown and discovery of their plans in the USA and Israel 2)the crack down on key groups inside the USA, especially the 911 truthers and alternate media (internet) who know too much. To effect the latter they have to say in advance that the threat and perpetrators did not enter the borders of the USA but were in fact US citizens and that the further erosion of civil liberties is justified.

    What a ridiculous charade. what is commonly known as a pile of horse sh1t. There never was any danger of a terrorist attack and there never will be in real terms. "chased a tip that al-Qaeda MAY have sent three men to detonate a car bomb. At least two of those men COULD be US citizens." Come on people understand what you are reading...!

      Maybe not in your world, but do you live in the US.

      Like you know. Where do you live? Are you in the US, New York maybe, close to Groubd Zero? It's all very talking from a distance. It just shows ignorance.

      slg, its not about being close to ground zero to realise that the supposed truth that we read about is a lie. What makes you believe that YOU are not ignorant?

      slg - 2011-09-11 13:30

      What makes me believe I'm not ignorant? Think about it. What does that even mean? You'd have to be emotionally detached to make sense of that. It's a left-brain tape-loop.
