I sure agree with that. The carping left works against US.
...that underlaid the weekend's elevation of the terror alert area in New York City, New Jersey and Washington DC:
L.A. Times: Fresh Details Back Threats: (Login: speakeasygang, Password: speakeasy)
Some of the surveillance files that triggered the nation's latest terrorism alert were reviewed and updated by Al Qaeda just months ago and dovetail with other, fresh intelligence that indicates the terrorism network remains intent on launching a major U.S. attack during the presidential election campaign, U.S. authorities said Monday.
Despite the elaborate details about five financial institutions in New York; Newark, N.J.; and Washington that are contained in the files, officials said they had been unable to learn whether Al Qaeda had agents in this country preparing for attacks.
But several senior U.S. counterterrorism officials said that the surveillance, obtained in Pakistan and reviewed late last week by authorities in Washington, came amid a continuing stream of intelligence corroborating Al Qaeda's determination to launch strikes in the U.S.
"It's like you have this blank piece of paper and it's filling up with more and more dots. It all points to an attack," said one senior Department of Homeland Security official.
The data was developed by CIA, then fed to FBI, then fed to the Department of Homeland Security, in a process that was illegal under the rules imposed by Clinton administration assistant Attorney General Jaime Gorelick's famous "wall" memo (now tell me again why - except to prevent her from having to testify about the fecklessness and negligence of her and her bosses).
We're not "safe" yet; perfect safety is impossible. But we are safer, and will continue to be ever safer - if we can just be rid of the carpings of the left, IMO.
