Documents found in the Bin Laden raid showed Osama Bin Laden eyed smaller cities as targets to expand their attack sites.
He schooled his followers to work around U.S. counterterrorism methods which he was apparently well-versed. He wrote of ways to ferment political dissent and play politicians against one another. Bin Laden also wanted to exploit minorities that would help drive a wedge between them and others as a method to help tear down the country. Is it just me or have you notice CAIR seems to do all these things? What a remarkable coincidence.
We learned this week counterterrorism funding to half of the smaller cities will end. Congress probably decided to cut these funds before these documents were discovered so I hope they are paying attention here. Some of the thirty-three "smaller cities" include Syracuse, Tuscon, Columbus, Toledo, New Orleans, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, to name just a few.
Also this week, Congress leaders agreed to extend for four years a vast array of surveillance and search powers put in place since 9/11. Both houses will vote on this agreement next week.
