An Upset Surprise Surprise In Store?

via The Washington Times:

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded recently that al Qaeda — fearing its credibility is on the line — is moving ahead with plans for a major, "spectacular" attack, despite disruptions of some operations by recent arrests in Britain and Pakistan.

Officials said recent intelligence assessments of the group, which is blamed for the September 11 attacks, state that an attack is coming and that the danger will remain high until the Nov. 2 elections and last until Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. [em. mine]
Thus, details of the possible attack remain murky, but analysts say it is planned to be bigger and deadlier than the September 11 attacks, which killed 3,000 people.
Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin told a Senate hearing last month that al Qaeda's ability to keep its operations secret is a "strategic weapon." [big fucking duh!]
"It's very well-documented in the 9/11 report how few people knew about that," he said Aug. 17. "They use secrecy as a strategic weapon. It's a strategic weapon for them because it asymmetrically works against us because we don't keep secrets very well." [hmm — I guess Murka needs to be less of an open society (ie, less democratic)]

Since Bush's numbers are up (how is that possible? the dems couldn't possibly be running a worse campaign — it's like they want to lose) there might be an election after all.

But hey, now there is a possibility of an attack after the election and before inauguration!

Just in case there's an upset and Kerry wins, I suppose.

So don't forget:

  • Be Afraid
  • A vote for Kerry is a vote for Al Qaeda
    (ARENA: Neither John Kerry nor the president has said troops pulled out of Iraq any time soon. But there is some speculation that al Qaeda believes it has a better chance of winning in Iraq if John Kerry is in the White House.

    BEN VENZKE, INTELCENTER: Al Qaeda feels that Bush is, even despite casualties, right or wrong for staying there is going to stay much longer than possibly what they might hope a Democratic administration would.)
