Julian Barnes, Wall Street Journal Pentagon reporter, talks about the administration's options in dealing with Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Welcome back Calls em! Glad to see you're doing well.
Now where are people in Chicago going to score those cool, Unscanned Yemini Toner Cartriges?
Truly a crushing blow to Ch-Town UYTC Fans.
Karen from NYC -- You ask, "What took the security agencies and media so long to voice such concerns?"
It's not the responsibility of law enforcement agencies to go with gut feelings. In the land of reality, facts must be sought, not opinions.
()bumer's October surprise. Makes it seem that this admin is doing something. LOL. Why are you talking about this instead of having local candidates on the air? You've had Weiner on 100 times, but have never had his opponent. Have you had any opponents on this year? Is this fair & balanced? Does this give context? Is it comprehensive? All you ads about your station are fraudulent. Time for new stations on these wave lengths. PS - don't be surprised if they trace the cartridges back to Israel or the US to try to frame one or the other or both and obfuscate the real nature of Islamic terrorism.
My husband and I suspected immediately that the bombs were intended to blow up planes, not synagogues. What took the security agencies and media so long to voice such concerns?
Re: Brooklyn bomb sweep, it was reported Friday afternoon that a Chase bank center was evacuated due to a link to a suspect package. See:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8097731/NYPD-Commissioner-Ray-Kelly-on-Brooklyn-bomb-scare.html
Oh here we go, the "Mossadnik" conspiracy theorists have arrived! Apparently, God created the universe, but the Mossad controls it. Obviously, a Mossad operative in Yemen would send a bomb addressed to a synagogue? Well, I guess those who believe that 9/11 was a Mossad/CIA false flag operation will believe anything.
A package from Yemen addressed to a Jewish synagogue in Chicago? What were they thinking??Wouldn't a package from Muslim Yemen addressed to a Jewish synagogue IMMEDIATELY raise a prima facie flag to the handlers at FedEX at the getgo? How did it even make it from the front office onto the plane??
I think it was a Mossad thing! We're now easing the American people to getting involved in a war with Yemen and Iran! I know, I know I'm crazy and W wasn't.
