Maybe, huh? Nice piece of detective work, Bush administration. Let"s all be careful out there.

I`m tired of people brushing off this stuff like it doesn`t matter. Yeah, threats usually don`t materialize, but would you rather not hear about anything and then have it happen (and then you complain you weren`t warned)? And wtf is this about Bush? So you`re saying that Obama will change the world by just not talking about terrorist threats? If this is your thought process you should be ashamed of your ignorance.

Just look at what happened in India today. Terrorists still exist people.

DuckBoy87,
Way to pass the buck but individual members of congress don`t have access to the same intelligence as the president. This administration lied about the reasons for war and says "Everyone else thought the same thing".
Nobody was "brainwashed by the Liberal media". You were lied to by your president. 800billion later, thousands of dead Americans loss of civil rights, torture... the list goes on. Bush can say a nuke was coming and I wouldn`t believe him because he`s proven himself a liar.

and authoritarian control over everyone. And they`ve won. Through fear.

Think of how many insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, ammunitions manufacturers, etc etc benefited from 9.11. Look at the people who own these companies. I`m pretty sure they don`t care about me.

So how far of a leap is it to think that they would attack a subway on one of the busiest days of the year to gain a little more power or influence?

That`s all I`m sayin`...

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely,

Meh. I feel like I should be afraid and shocked and surprised, but somehow I`m not. It`s kind of sad, but I doubt that there is anything that can surprise informed people anymore. And by "informed" I don`t mean watching FOX News while you eat dinner (but before, of course, hunting wildlife by helicopter.)

No, our government is just a cover for something a little more organized. It`s called capitalism and it is our government. It is used by every one of the richest, most powerful nations in the world to control the poorer, less powerful groups (nations, people, etc.) And the best part of it is that very few people question it. Why? Because people like their houses and their vacations and their cars.

And they are afraid of what will happen if they refuse to follow the status quo.

So they work at jobs they hate, the pay their HOA dues and their taxes, they shut their minds off to the horror that surrounds them and fall in line, puppets to a government that is looking for

You mean the same "liberal" media that didn`t oppose the war or even question whether it was a good idea until years later? The same "liberal" media that pulled Keith Olbermanns show for simply wanting to discuss the war in Iraq? The liberal media myth is old, news stations sell to whoever will listen and the people listening happen to have turned against the war. The news media isn`t liberal, they just want viewers and if people were 100% for the war, they would be talking about all the good the war has done. But as it turns out, people generally hate war.

Think about it this way: if they knew for sure, they would stop it; but they don`t know for sure, their intelligence, the same intelligence that said weapons of mass destruction was in Iraq, has found a threat, and are now warning people.

This same intelligence that a majority of Congress found to be credible enough to initiate the war.

So before you go and say, "F_ck you Bush.", actually use your brain, instead of being brain washed by the liberal media, the same media that refuses to show the positives of the war, and only showing the negatives.

I like how no one believes this. Me included. I think its funny that they publicize these reports...like, it screws them either way and makes them look bad no matter what happens. If we DO get attacked, its like "great, you had info and you still couldnt stop it" and if we don`t, it looks like fear mongering. War on terrorism ftl.

Ugh- They won`t attack the subways...
While I understand and acknowledge that there are people out there that don`t like us.. I also believe that the US gov`t had a hand in the whole 9/11 be it directly or indirectly.
Each other threat has never come true.. though tomorrow they`ll probably pull some story;
"terrorists caught arming and planting bombs in NY subway! Warnings were correct!" just to stir up some anger.
Meh- Osama`s dead and Al Queada is running around like a chicken without it`s gyro-synched head..

Now- I`m not saying we should ignore this potential threat as we don`t know if it`s real or not.. but i just don`t get excited over these anymore.

I am getting tired of all these freakin terorists... They haven`t killed anyone i know yet, and i hope they never do. Even thoguh i didn`t know anybody that died in any explosions i still feel the pain that someone that lost thier family might, though not as severe. If they keep on attacking us im about to start beating down anybody who looks suspicious... I`m really getting tired of all this violence already... I don`t mean to sound so serious, but Armageddon is getting closer everyday, like it was predicted in the bible. There are a number of different signs that show that the day is coming, and more than half of those have already happened... We have brought our own death... but don`t worry, everything will be perfect again, just like life was intended to be.

"Still playing the old "Fear" card ay George?

Face it, people don`t believe you and no matter how much you try and scare them they still won`t believe you.

End you reign of tyranny in silence and then let the adults fix the mess that you and the rest of the kids have made."

I am going to guess that you were also one of the people that was wondering why Bush didn`t warn us about the attacks on 9-11-2001. Unlike you I don`t plan to remain oblivious to the fact that there are people out there that don`t like us. On the case of the war. Bush can`t declare war. Congress has to do that. If you want to blame someone for the war get your facts straight and blame congress not Bush.

isn`t al qaeda a euphemism for government?
um, rissa, what could you possibly do if a bunch of arabs started blowing stuff up? seriously, i honestly don`t believe a bunch of arabs are terrorising america - it`s just the government keeping people in fear.

Yeah, we should probably take all possible threats and treat them as nothing. We should "wait for a credible threat. And in my opinion, the only way you know a threat is credible is for people to start dieing. So I will wait for multiple deaths before I do anything, thank you very much!"

thelonious, 9-11-2001. you seem to have forgotten, thousands already have died.

Exactly what good would falsely predicting an attack do Bush? Unless he hires actors to pretend and be terrorists and then shoots them.

The whole point of terrorism is to cause fear in your victim to control them; full-out violence is just one of them. For all we know, just the information of this plan could be the entire `attack`.

I am sure the government knows much more than they are releasing. They always do. I think there is plausible reason worry and take caution if you live in a metropolitan area.

whats with the fight against terror? you can`t win it.. there always will be someone terrorizing somebody.. just prevent it from happening and don`t hunt them.. remember that bully in your school picking on the small ones? they may be able to kick his ass on their school time.. but little time later some other bully comes around and starts over

....i think OUR government is going to bomb the subways, (or at least a hidden bush administration agreement with a middle eastern guy)
considering al queda is hiding in the unclaimed land on pakistans border (technically part of pakistan) and the pakistani government wont let us in, i think we would see a terrorist from al queda leaving the area

would be genius to hide the bombs in present boxes the days before christmas. as everyone in the subways will carry around loads of presents and boxes.
would be the best time to hit. as the subways would be full for the last rush to bolster the commercialism of christmas.
Stuff like this is easy to think out.
