While the liberals wring their hands that some innocent person may briefly confused with a terrorists – due to the NSA monitoring of calls made between known or highly suspected terrorists overseas to people here in America – the fact is the FIS Court is getting a lot of new work because, simply put, terrorist activity appears to be on the rise here in the US:
he FBI has increased its use of secret search warrants over the past two years because of a “high tempo of terrorist activity,” a top official said yesterday.
FBI Assistant Director John Miller said the 2,176 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act search warrants approved last year, compared with only 1,754 granted in 2005, mostly targeted plotters inside America.
“We’re seeing a very high tempo of terrorist activity, not just based on the cases you’re seeing being brought in the United States,” Miller said in an interview yesterday for C-SPAN’s “Newsmaker” program.
Miller said the warrants, issued by a secret federal court in Washington, are usually not a “way to a prosecution,” but are “an intelligence tool.”
The FBI’s chief spokesman – who as a TV newsman conducted a 1998 interview with Osama Bin Laden – echoed other counterterror officials who say the U.S. may have underestimated top Al Qaeda leaders’ ability to oversee operations in recent years.
To those liberals with any suicidal delusions to put and end to our national security efforts and stop the NSA from listening in on possible terrorists I have a message. Keep your damn hands and idiotic theories off one of our key defenses against attack. We don’t need to invite another 9-11 by dropping our guard.
