Hmmmâ€¦ Combine the following recent events with Chernoffâ€™s report of a â€˜gut feelingâ€™ of an imminent terrorist attack, then a story in a July 9, World Net Daily. What do you get? Hyperbole or hysteria?
A statement posted late Tuesday by the TSA on its Web site confirmed that â€œa routine TSA intelligence bulletin relating to suspicious incidents at U.S. airportsâ€ had leaked to news organizations. â€¦. The bulletin said the a joint FBI-Homeland Security Department assessment found that terrorists have conducted probes, dry runs and dress rehearsals in advance of previous attacks.
San Diego, July 7. A U.S. person either a citizen or a foreigner legally here checked baggage containing two ice packs covered in duct tape. The ice packs had clay inside them rather than the normal blue gel.
Milwaukee, June 4. A U.S. person’s carryon baggage contained wire coil wrapped around a possible initiator, an electrical switch, batteries, three tubes and two blocks of cheese. The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives.
Houston, Nov. 8, 2006. A U.S. person’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a 9-volt battery, wires, a block of brown clay-like minerals and pipes.
Baltimore, Sept. 16, 2006. A couple’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a block of processed cheese taped to another plastic bag holding a cellular phone charger.
The bulletin said the passengers carrying the suspicious items seized since September included men and women and that initial investigation had not linked them with criminal or terrorist organizations. But it added that most of their explanations for carrying the items were suspicious and some were still under investigation.
I wonder if we will ever get a full report on these people. Who they were and what their explanation was. Come on! What possible harmless excuse could you come up with of blocks of cheese with wires sticking out of them?
Then from the World Net Daily.
Terrorists will try to carry out an attack on the United States within the next 90 days, a former Israeli counterterrorism intelligence officer predicts. Juval Aviv, head of the New York-based intelligence company Interfor and a special consultant to the U.S. Congress, told Fox News his information is based primarily on intelligence “floating in Europe and the Middle East.”
An event is “imminent and around the corner here in the United States,” he said. “It could happen as soon as tomorrow, or it could happen in the next few months. Ninety days at the most.”
“What they’re going to do is hit six, seven, or eight cities simultaneously to show sophistication and really hit the public,” Aviv said.
But this time, he emphasized, it will not only be big cities.
“They’re going to try to hit rural America,” Aviv said. “They want to send a message to rural America: ‘You’re not protected. If you figured out that if you just move out of New York and move to Montana or to Pittsburgh, you’re not immune. We’re going to get you wherever we can and it’s easier there than in New York.’”
Time will tell.
