Assassinated Hezbollah Terrorist Was Planning Large Terrorist Attack, Are Democrats Risking The Lives Of Our Military?
There are reports that the Hezbollah terrorist recently assassinated in Damascus was in the stages of planning a huge attack against other Arab states, probably with the assistance of the Iranians:
A Kuwaiti newspaper reports that Hizbullah terrorist chief Imad Mughniyeh, who was killed in a car-bomb attack in Damascus on Tuesday, was in the midst of planning major terrorist attacks in moderate Arab countries when he was killed.
Al-Watan reports that American intelligence had learned that Mughniyeh arrived in Damascus three days earlier with instructions from, and in coordination with, the Iranians. His objective was to meet with Hizbullah leaders and coordinate a mass attack, for which he was to receive help from Syrian intelligence.
Another Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Siasa, reports that Mughniyeh took part, shortly before he was killed, in a secret meeting in the Iranian School in Damascus. Also participating in the meeting were Syrian Intelligence Chief Gen. Aisaf Shwackath, Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal, and an Islamic Jihad representative. On the agenda: planned attacks in Arab countries that refuse to take part in the coming Arab League summit in Damascus.
You know that if this is a valid story that the NSA surveillance played a huge role in getting the intelligence on this attack before it happened. What a grand day for the Democrats to tie the hands of our surveillance efforts overseas by not renewing the FISA changes that have kept this nation safe from attack ever since 9-11 (something most people would have said would be impossible at the time of 9-11). And if there is any doubt this is a valid story then one only needs to look at brand new sanctions on Syria coming out of the White House:
Meanwhile, US President George W. Bush has ordered stricter economic sanctions against Syria, the White House announced in an executive message to Congress.
The order to freeze the assets of people held responsible for actions that “undermine efforts to stabilize Iraq” came Wednesday, the day before Mughniyehâ€™s burial.
What we seem to have detected here is an Iranian/Syrian/Hezbollah/Islamic Jihad plot to attack neighboring nations – maybe even Iraq. The Surrendercrats desperately need some excuse to cut and run from Iraq and hand the place over to Bin Laden so he can wage his now-declared war on Israel.
Many Americans may not remember but the current, soon to expire, fixes to FISA were due to a FIS Court judge trying to expand the powers of the judiciary and requiring proof of threat and warrants to monitor just people overseas (forget about the original FISA-NSA dust up about how to handle leads on terrorist cells in the US detected by NSA monitoring of overseas threats). This kind of threat against our forces in Iraq was fair game prior to 9-11, but the idiots on the left are so damn paranoid (like anyone cares what the babble on about?) they have moved to make ALL surveillance illegal in case they may be caught up in the intel net (which is what happens every day in this country with warranted surveillance – innocent people get listened in on). Why should this nation cater to these paranoid delusions and let our military forces be at risk of an attack?
The liberal left is going for broke on this in an election year when they had a chance at the WH. It will soon become evident they have nothing but paranoid delusions and the WH has years of foiled attacks to show why we need to keep an eye on our enemies who have sworn to die trying to kill us in large numbers. And if you want more evidence the threat is real and we need our defenses at full capability just realize the nation is now on alert for attack – while Dems try and blind us to pending attacks:
The FBI put its terror squads on alert for attacks against Jewish targets after a Hezbollah leader died in a car bomb blast in Syria.
The FBI said Thursday that it had instructed its Joint Terrorism Task Forces in 101 communities across the United States to ask Jewish institutions to look out for signs of heightened dangers.
Hezbollah blamed Israel for the killing this week of Imad Mughniya, a terrorist believed responsible for hundreds of American, Israeli and Jewish deaths dating back to the 1980s.
Want to know how suicidally stupid Pelosi and liberal friends are – they also see the same intel reports as the President.
