Intelligence: Islamic State Planning
Terror Attack in US, Europe

Israel National News [Beit El, Israel], by Tova Dvorin

Members of the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS) are planning to carry out major terror attacks against targets in the United States or in Europe, American intelligence officials said Saturday. Five intelligence officials stated to Bloomberg News that there is evidence that the organization is running a sleeper cells around the world, outside of Iraq and Syria. The goal: to gain a greater foothold in the Islamic world - politically and militarily. According to retired U.S. Army Colonel Derek Harvey, the Middle East is gripped in a “competition for jihadi leadership” between IS and Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, following

Coming soon, to a shopping mall or sports stadium close to you! Exploding vans, exploding Muslims, shooting teams like in Nairobi.

They won´t have any trouble entering the US via our southern border. Imagine what else they can bring in, from toxic substances and components for bombs, to anthrax and ebola. When they strike, I hope Americans will remember this administration has treated our borders as if they don´t exist and has done nothing to secure them.

We still don´t know much about Obsama´s past but I can sadly guarantee that we will know all about his future in the form of his "legacy."

Every bomb, every dead American or other first world citizen, every extortion threat, missing or crashed aircraft, dirty bomb, beheaded child, raped and murdered women, every one and more of these in the future has it´s origin in Zero´s willful refusal to honor the sacrifice that won Iraq, to fulfill his duty to leave the Iraqi Army´s spine intact, to badger, push and entreat al Maliki to move past tribalism and also his gutless choice to ignore ISIS when it was small and even worse to do nothing now. Hell has been opened.

That is his legacy internationally.

Terror attacks can never happen here. NSA is on the job. All your e-mails, phone calls, GPS signals from your cell phones, are being recorded and analyzed. The government knows who you are and where you are and what you are doing (and in some cases who you are doing it with) and what you are wearing. So rest easy, good people, our government is on the job. /s

The Islamic State and its support worldwide are at war with the world. They cannot be ignored. Hope the various world powers are preparing to deal with this. Hopefully the fight can be contained mostly to the middle east, but don´t really expect it. It will go worldwide since Islam is worldwide. Too bad we have Obama as our leader. We aren´t ready.

Most of the blame goes to those who refuse to close both our Northern and Southern borders. Most countries have strict immigration policies, so why is it that New Zealand, for example is as tight as a tick with immigrants? Because they have seen what happens to the UK and America, bastions of liberty and freedom, when anyone can simply waltz in with EMPs, bio-weapons, nuclear weapons or worse if they want to.

America is still the greatest country on earth yet we may as well send out gilt-edged invitations to every terrorist who wants in.

“It is a global expansionist, global jihadist organization” he said. “It is swollen with foreign fighters and suicide bombers” who will go “wherever the organization tells them to go.

Is anything being done about this by our VacayPreezy, or is he mourning the game cut short by the world being on fire? Bummer.

Meanwhile, IS has suffered significant losses in US airstrikes in Iraq over the weekend; rumblings, however weak, have also begun in Europe against the Islamists.

How hard is it to decide to wipe these desert scorpions off the map? Doing nothing, when IS has been explicit about their plans to cripple America, is akin to watching your child drown and going off to play golf.

I just wonder if and when will Obozo and company will wake up to the clear fact that these sub-human people do not understand ANYTHING except a force greater than themselves. That´s it. All of the running around jacking about "diplomacy" and "coming to an understanding" is just pure trash. Those people will use those tactics just to stall or advance their own objectives. They consider all of that just shows how weak we and the rest of the world really are. If we don´t fight back, and I´m referring to the entire free world, then we are toast. Period.

There are two kinds of targets: hard targets (which would have an severe economic impact) and soft targets (little economic, but high publicity). The 9-11 attacks were against targets that could be construed as both hard and soft. If you want to start a target list, try to combine both types into one.

But you should also realize that since 9-11, there have been extensive site visits for critical infrastructure elements in the United States. Those visits were suppose to identify vulnerabilities and dependencies, in order to protect against various forms of terrorism.

I am not saying that terrorist attacks are going to be stopped dead, only that attacks are going to be a lot more difficult to execute since 9-11.

Terror attacks are not tough to execute at all, they just require a little imagination. Look at all of the places vulnerable to simple fire, look at all the vehicles on the highways every day that are potential bombs. Look at the chaos caused by electrical outages. Many people would even be devastated if their cable TV went out. Imagine these acts being carried out simultaneously by several hundred jihadis. We have that many living in Dearborn alone. That´s only the obvious. American citizens are not hardened like Israelis, there would be mass hysteria not seen since "War of the Worlds."

More U.S. troops being

USA Today, by Tom Vanden Brook and David Jackson    Original Article

WASHINGTON — As Obama administration officials sought to reassure Americans about efforts to contain Ebola in the wake of the first U.S. case, the military announced Friday that an additional 1,000 troops could be sent to West Africa to help fight the virus. And that number could go higher than that, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. "I´m not going to put a floor or ceiling on this," Kirby said. President Obama initially ordered 3,000 troops to West Africa to help build hospitals, labs and treatment centers and provide logistics help. They are not going to treat Ebola

Ebola is spreading at the rate of five new cases an hour in Sierra Leone, according to figures released as world leaders and experts on disease control gathered in London to discuss the outbreak. The figures from Save the Children showed there were 765 new cases last week in the west African country alone, but only 327 hospital beds to treat infected patients. The charity said the “terrifying” rate of the spread of the disease was outstripping medical supplies and threatened a breakdown of Sierra Leone’s already fragile health system. The rate of spread of the deadly virus is projected

Liberian authorities said Thursday they will prosecute Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan when he returns home for allegedly lying on his airport departure screening questionnaire about whether he had had contact with a person infected with the virus. The latest Ebola outbreak has killed 3,338 in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Senegal and Nigeria, the World Health Organization says, prompting several West African countries to closely monitor travelers in and out of the country. On the form obtained by the Associated Press and confirmed by a Liberian government official, Duncan answered "no" to questions about whether he had cared for

(Snip) Referring to President Obama´s speech on the treat of the militant group, Cantlie says: "It was all disappointingly predictable; America is good, the Islamic State is bad; and they will be defeated using aircraft and a motley collection of fighters on the ground.

An investigation was underway Tuesday after Iraqi military pilots mistakenly gave food, water and ammunition to enemy ISIS militants instead of their own soldiers, a senior security official and a brigadier told NBC News. The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for a week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar. “Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) made fresh advances in both Syria and Iraq on Monday, in defiance of the escalating United States-led bombing campaign against the jihadist group. For almost two months now, Tomahawk missiles and F22 Raptor jet fighters have bombarded the bases, strategic assets and front-line positions of Isil jihadists. But the group’s encroachment on Baghdad is steadily progressing and it is close to seizing a key Kurdish village on the Syria-Turkey border. Isil gunmen were reported to be six miles away from some points of Baghdad, and were holding their ground at a

In one of the most closely-watched Senate races of the year, incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina holds a narrow three-point advantage over her Republican challenger, according to a new CNN/ORC International survey.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military is spending as much as $10 million per day on its new air war against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a relative pittance compared with the hundreds of millions it spent fighting every day in Afghanistan in 2013. The costs in Iraq and Syria will escalate substantially if, as President Obama and Pentagon officials have said, the new war lasts for years, according to military analysts. Flying and maintaining warplanes requires a substantial investment in weaponry and personnel. "If airstrikes in Syria and Iraq continue for as long as the president predicts, they

Airstrikes in Syria against the extremist Khorasan group were prompted by planning for an “imminent” terror attack on U.S. soil, the Pentagon said. (Snip) Amid attention on the threat from Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Khorasan has emerged in recent weeks as a more immediate peril in the view of the U.S. intelligence community because it’s more focused on attacking America and Europe. The militant group is made up of a “network of seasoned al-Qaeda veterans” preparing to attack “United States and Western interests,” the Defense Department said in a statement.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
