Good job! (http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/10/29/security.concern/index.html?hpt=T1&iref=BN1)


(CNN) -- Suspicious packages found in at least two locations abroad that were bound for the United States "apparently contain explosive material," President Barack Obama said Friday, calling the discovery "a credible threat against our country."

The packages led to increased searches of cargo planes and trucks in several U.S. cities, said law enforcement sources with detailed knowledge of the investigation.

U.S. officials believe that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, commonly referred to as AQAP, is behind the incident.

Obama confirmed that the packages originated in Yemen, the stronghold of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

The bombs were intended for U.S. Jews.

Let's review: Roman Catholics had a prayer said once a year calling for the conversion of Jews.

Muslims repeatedly drive cars into Jewish community centers or gathering places, bomb Jewish enclaves, kill individual Jews in the name of religion, and attempt to bomb Jewish synagogues in the U.S.

But it's those crazy Christians who are really at the root of antisemitism. :confused:

If you follow the link, you will be treated to some scenes from the strenuous life of a professional Muslim protester in the Kashmiri city of Srinagar. Over the last few years, there have been innumerable opportunities for him to demonstrate his piety and his pissed-offness. And the cameras have been there for him every time. Is it a fatwah? Is it a copy of the Quran allegedly down the gurgler at Guantanamo? Is it some cartoon in Denmark? Time for Rage Boy to step in and for his visage to impress the rest of the world with the depth and strength of Islamist emotion.

Yeah, it probably is just that the people assigned to do intelligence work did their jobs right.

I'm sure that terrorists who hate america would love to strike the day of an election.
