Pretty sure someone laughed at me when I said there was no way these kids acted alone. Crazy new world we live in. Kinda wished we never proclaimed America as the fighting force against the war on Terror. Now every crazy a$$ Muslim extremist sees America as the next great holy war battle arena. This is just the beginning. Those of you in my field of work will have jobs for a long time.
Police believe the pair were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack
care to elaborate?
Sorry, DOD. I never thought I would say this, but active surveillance of all citizens may be a necessary evil at this point. If people knew just how close this war is today, people would panic.

Article about how these organizations are evolving within the US.
Statement Before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
Anyone who thinks this crap doesn't exist is just dumb.
Also, I don't think people realize how many terrorist we STOP or arrest that doesn't make the news. We stop MANY "threats" every year.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Wait, so if the stories of the terrorists we do stop don't make the news, how do you know how many terrorists are stopped/arrested?
I'd be very curious to see how many terrorists we stop with various branches of government, given that the TSA has yet to find/stop a single terrorist.
What exactly are you arguing? TSA is a joke.
Have you ever seen "24".. Jack Bauer has taught me well. Why the FRICK would the government tell the citizens they caught a terrorist.. No way though would tell us and you damn right we stop "threats" every year.
We have people in high, high places in the CIA, FBI and all of that and they do not let many things out the bag.
Saying "we stopped a bomb by finding a cell" would do more harm than good

Any anti-terrorist tactic that is broadcast over the news or that the public can notice is a joke, as any reasonably intelligence terrorist can observe it and adapt to it. However, government still push for these tactics because it makes it look they are doing something against terrorism, even though their tactics are general useless and simply wasting taxpayer dollars.
This does not fit CMXI and BLF's agenda.
Agenda? It's not an agenda to question an assertion when Lesticals is pretty much saying "24 says there are terrorist cells, and I haven't heard anything about terrorists getting caught, so that clearly means terrorists are getting caught and stopped all the time."
Well.. it's true, the CIA isn't going to tell the public SH!T
I bet we didn't know half of the names of people that went to Gitmo
What about all the people who are fooled by the liberal media into thinking that a British tabloid is real and then write a rant about it?
So, I have to ask again - how do you know that the government is stopping and arresting terrorists all the time?
oh, you mean that place that the big O closed down?
except, wait, hmm, or, er, um, durrrrrrrrrr
How do you know that they're not?
Do you understand them? Are they terrorists? How many times have they forgotten that the Onion is not a legitimate news source? How victimized do they feel on April 1st? Do they believe that TAMU is the pinnacle of American Higher Education?
Good one Captain Obvious.
You "got" me.
Notice my sentence is in past tense.
I think his point was that Obama didn't close it. No need for past tense.
Well, let's examine this logic. If a man walks up to you and says nothing for 5 minutes, is the logical inference a) that the man has not said anything for 5 minutes, or b) that the man has actually been telling you all the secrets of the known universe, but the government has protected you from hearing them?
You're the one who said "I don't think people realize how many terrorist we STOP or arrest that doesn't make the news." I'm simply asking how you know there are even any terrorists we stop or arrest that don't make the news.
Doesn't matter. no one in this thread knows wtf they're talking about.
I'll sum it up - you might be clinically retarded.
