“We Are Going to Get Hit Again”
The head of the National Counterterrorism Center speaks out on Al Qaeda's plans, America’s readiness—and the nature of the war on terror.

Aug. 27, 2007 - Al Qaeda has an active plot to hit the West. The United States knows about it but doesn’t have enough tactical detail to issue a precise warning or raise the threat level, says Vice Admiral (ret.) John Scott Redd, who heads the government’s National Counterterrorism Center. In an interview at his headquarters near Washington, D.C., Redd told Newsweek’s Mark Hosenball and Jeffrey Bartholet that the country is better prepared than ever to counter such threats. But he also believes another successful terror attack on the U.S. homeland is inevitable.

guys i'm afraid their is nothing you can do to warn the public and be seen as a good guy
you let people know who believe it is terrorists responsible and they will turn YOU IN
the GOV'T will say LOOK there are terrorists operating in "anti-gov't" sites within the
united states and the ONLINE COMMUNITY.
this will give them the ability to regulate the internet (which is the Achillies heel) and take care of some dissenter's in the know
just a thought and it should give you pause. BE VERY CAREFUL
and the valhall post pissed me off to no end, this is what valhall has warned about before and got "ripped apart" and no mods stepped up. Please , say it's not so

Bush warns of 'holocaust' if Iran gets nukes
US President George W. Bush warned Tuesday that letting Iran acquire atomic weapons risked putting the Middle East "under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust."
"Iran's active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust," he told a veterans group here.
