What puzzles me, is that why would they be warning about an attack?

They didn't warn for 911, so why warn everyone now?
Wasn't the element of surprise paramount to the attacks on Sept. 11

Also,

A careful search of all large vehicles might reveal any nefarious plots.

Also, this would seem pretty obvious to a terrorist especially after a threat has been issued.
Unless of course it could be concealed in a smaller package. i.e. a Mini

IF the FBI has the right guy .. then chances are he's not really all that connected with the big guys in Al-qaida. If he were then they would have told him to keep his mouth shut until after he pulled off the attacks.

He is an associate of Attas .. so there could be a connection. The threat could be a real threat. But the fact that he warned of ahead of time shows a breach from proper 'terrorist' training - for a lack of a better definition. I don't know how else to put it.

intrepid, you apparently missed to point of my post. The tastelessness of the issue was your inability to understand it.

Was it a threat or was it a prediction?
NFL Attack: Threat or Prediction?
There's a big difference and if it was the latter then all of us here on ATS need to worry.

The whole thing is a hoax. The local suspect here has no ties to any known terrorist cell. But, since it's a slow newsday here in Milwaukee there's a lot of local coverage of this if anyones interested.

If it is not a 'credible warning', why notify the NFL? Something is not adding up here. You do not make this big of a deal over nothing, I mean, read some of the posts on here (which I am sure is monitored) and people threaten Bush and the US ALL THE time. strange.....

Isn't this weekend the "end" of Ramadan.

Fox is saying the Feds have questioned the 20 year old and don't think this is credible.

I wonder if this person will be charged with making false threats, they aren't mentioning that.

Just heard on FOX the FBI says it was definitely a hoax, no need to worry.

Yes, I can verify they say it is a hoax.

They also are saying it is a Felony so this guy is in trouble and well should be.

Why's that? Have you seen the guy's actual post? Did he say he's going to do something or knows of somebody that's going to do something or did he just say he thinks something will happen?
All I've seen is what the media has written... that it was a threat. But from what I read, it was more like he was predicting something.

With the troubles they are having definitivley proving 911 was alqaeda,
maybe that are taking a different approach to this threat

'' we had prior evidence an attack was coming, unfortunately we wernt able to stop it... this is the evidence we had an acted on... we have already initiated the war machine to strike given targets in response..''

Both the timing and the credibility of the source are questionable.

I'd speculate that perhaps a credible source isn't really required..as long as the objective is achieved: to create panic and fear.

Obviously the emergency services simply cannot take any threat lightly, since it's part of their role in life to defend us. Fair play to them for doing their job and for doing it well.

However, contained in the resulting public hysteria will be demands for action..for control. As I feel Alex Jones asks: is such action actually being used as a pretext to enslave - to eradicate rights? To contain society to a point where it merely anticipates the worst instead of questioning the order of things?

I accept that military action may be a possible outcome, but do reserve the right to first know exactly who the enemy is. Especially if it means entering another country and instigating military action that will undoubtedly cost billions of dollars and many, many lives.

I'm with worldwatcher on this one. Seems more likely to be a diversion, if it is real at all. But I would'nt be looking at other stadiums., that would be too obvious.

I've contacted CNN and told them to take a look at the following site: justcurio.us...

The original threat was made on the 3rd of October all the way down that site, NOT on the 12th as the FBI claims.

I doubt CNN will do anything with this information though


Ahwell I did my part I guess.

And don't worry, They can't arrest me. I'm not a US citizen

And not to mention I wouldn't know why they would arrest me for giving them some help.

What a loser, and caused so much attention for nothing while real threats are missed because resources are pulled for this schmuck...

Real winner, this guy:

This knucklehead behavior may not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Brahm's other online activity via MySpace and an ambitious blog on which he recorded all of his 2006 masturbatory activity. In his most recent MySpace blog entry, Brahm, an avowed Japanese pornography enthusiast, mentioned Iran's president: "I admire Mahmoud Ahmadinejad," he wrote. In a separate post, he listed his hobbies as "masturbating, watching foreign language films, playing cards, drumming, and sleeping. One day I hope to leave my house."


Well, he may get his wish to leave his home after all.
Courtesy of the state.

Overall, I think the whole situation was handled quite nicely by law enforcement and the NFL.

if more people watch ratings go up

Nothing on the threat radar targeting NASCAR races or any auto race thankfully. Talldega holds somwhere in the range of a about 250,000 - 300,000 spectators both in the infield and in the stands. Bristol Motor Speedway, the lil old half mile bullring just outside Bristol, Tennessee holds over 150,000. Plans are in the works to increase it to over 200,000 within the next two years. security is more strict at the races due to the size of the crowds and due to the fact that it's out in the open air.
