    most of those drating targets are in other countries...now, im sure that the people of those countries are grateful, however, i fail to see how it justifies the use of domestic spying in the U.S. I know that Bush did not actually say that this is justification for spying, but it is timed to coincide with the senate judiciary hearings...drating jerk

    I prevented a terrorist plot yesterday. It was going to be on the West Coast of the us involving a water source in a major city. Then, I prevented one today that was going to target a northern port, using a nerve agent. Tomorrow, with several partners, I plan on thwarting the detonation of a dirty bomb in a crowded children`s hospital. And stuff...

    lol @ SmagBoy1.

    Great list, but not much detail and no proof at all. It could just be NyQ said a way to justify domestic spying without actually admitting it.

    I`d give props to whichever agency if they`d actually had stopped the terrorism. But until we see some evidence that they did stop terror attacks, this could all be made up to make them look good.

    Yep, that`s us, SpoonFork, dumbasses who believe anything. Holy crap, I don`t care WHO says it, liberal or conservative, if someone says, "Um, gee, I prevented this thing, in some place, where some guy was gonna use some stuff," then I`m going to say, bullpoo! And if that makes me hateful, then so be it!

    How fortunate that since none of those attacks actually were attempted, there is no evidence whether or not they actually were ever planned.

    No. You need to take a dick-head pill. SpoonFork was obviously being sarcastic, you jumped down his throat, he apologized ;-() and then you try to make him out to be an idiot.

    Get your finger off the trigger please.

    Manorrd, I apologized to him! How`s that dick-headed? And, no, I didn`t try to make him out to be an idiot. I was complimenting his sarcasm. He got me. I missed it, I blew it, I was wrong--I was the idiot, not him. I said I need to take a chill pill because I jumped on him and I shouldn`t have.

    I`ll believe it when another country backs it up.
    I wouldn`t doubt the that the administration would lie through their teeth (Dem or Rep, they`re all liars)

    Cool. I for one, believe them. Though i do doubt that all of the plots are as bad as they were made to sound.

    I have no problem with domestic spying either. I got nothing to hide. They can look all they want. Just wasting their time.

    I think I`ve actually heard of several of these before...

    Anyway, to those who think this is made up, how do you explain the fact that not one terrorist attack has occurred in the United States since 9/11/2001? Blind luck? The terrorists are "biding their time"? Please.

    By the way, "domestic spying" is not the correct term to describe the wiretap program. Here`s the way it works: When counterterrorism forces seize a terrorist`s cell phone or raid a hideout and find computers, they copy the memory in the software and record the telephone numbers stored in the memory. These telephone numbers are wiretapped. That`s it. Unless you have a buddy in Al-Qaeda, you have nothing to fear from the terrorist surveillance program.

    Trivia Question: How many terrorist attacks occured in America 5 years after the 1993 trade center bombing? Were they bidding their time? Blind luck? Clinton`s great leadership?

    I don`t like Bush, but those who are saying that Bush isn`t really protecting us don`t realize that just because they don`t exactly say all over the news WE STOPPED A TERRORIST ATTACK doesn`t mean that they didn`t actually stop it. And I think that what people think is "spying" or "invasion of privacy" isn`t such a big deal. Honestly, they aren`t that interested in an email to someone about your sex life.

    They may or may not have stoped any attacks. The only problem is that it is like trying to "prove a negative", the only real way to know we stoped an attack is to kill or capture the suspects before or durring the attack.

    Also from what I understand of the Patriot Act, it is specificaly designed to protect people. IF someone tries to covict you for something found under the patriot act, the judge will throw it out as unconstitutional.

    But, if information is found they can and will use it to thwart an attack. Now I personaly don`t think this is right, and it sucks that it has to come to this, and I am extreemly worried that the powers will be abused, I just don`t know how to go about fixing it or comming up with something better.

    If anyone has any Ideas feel free to let me know.

    I don`t KNOW what to do about it, and instead of just complaining, why can`t we come up with something that will keep us safe and secure our rights??

    My gripe isn`t the "domestic spying" thing per se, but rather the going around the courts that are in place and not asking their permission. You know, that whole checks and balances thing? I`m all for protection, but, there`s a specific court set up to grant the authority to listen in. Why if these numbers are all "from known terrorists" can`t the administration simply ask the court for permission? The court had NEVER, not even once, turned down a request from the administration. So why go around it? That`s what`s at issue here, no the invasion of privacy or whatever.
