I believe two, of the nine postcards, are spelled 'Jiahd'.

I also wanted to point out that 10/10 is also the date that Congress gave Bush the authorization to use military force against Iraq. It may be irrelevant, but I'm just trying to point out some interesting points for discussion.

Edit: I just reread my post and wanted to point out my overuse of the words 'point out' in making my points.

edit2: BTW theres a $10 000 REWARD so lets get busy folks.Not that a reward should be needed to catch this filth.

Sorry, I am too busy working on the capture of Osama Bin Laden with the massive reward there $25M + $2M from the Pilots Association


Why don't we catch this guy first and then worry about the 14 year olds with access to postage stamps and postcards later.

And that reason I just do not buy because true terrorists are resourceful,dangerous people.They could get hold of whatever they need.No postcards needed,no warnings needed.

Except for the fact that Islamic extremists/terrorists most often give warnings of attcks they are going to make.

I do hope this does not happen, but too often have Islamic extremists been using similar inhumane tactics for thousands of years to either convert people to their own version of Islamic extremism or kill them if they don't want to convert.

PS. Sourgrapes.....I think your onto something that everyone has been trying to wrap their brains around with the "youthful" looking beard as a sign or trigger.

Hmmm maybe. Did you notice that there was no overt show of arms or weaponry in this new video? Does that mean that OBL has foresaken the armed struggle and with his new plea for America to become Muslim that he will seek to resolve his issues by quiet prayer?

Why doesn't anyone ever come to conclusions like that based on the 'signs' that are 'transmitted' via these things.

I can tell you one thing though as someone who grew up in the UK during the 70's and 80's I know what real terror is like. The Provisional IRA, a real terrorist organisation, brought enough terror with homemade explosives and small arms. In all of their years (the longest peace time conflict in history bar Israel / Palalstine) they never succeeded in pulling off the daring attacks that Al Queda are alledged to have done.

Why is that? With all of their funding (large amounts from the US I might add), fairly sophisticated weaponry, high levels of organisation and what surely must be, compared to todays Orwellian levels, an under equipped set of security forces opposing them. Why did they never pull off anything on the scale of 9/11? They wreaked damage with major bombs against civilian and military targets and over the course of the troubles killed thousands and injured many more. They were not afraid to kill indiscriminately either, the pub bombings against unrelated civilian targets proved that.

I don't believe that a terrorist group of any kind, without the backing of at least sections of the US Government pulled off that attack on the Pentagon and WTC. Look at their peers in Iraq? Bali? Somalia? Wherever? Small arms and improvised explosives - no WMD, no Die Hard style film plots. This would be the scale of any 'real' terrorist attacks in the US. Look at Oklahoma.

I am not saying that your children are not under threat, that is a credible one given the weirdos around today but do not see this as part of a world wide terrorist conspiracy. Remember that despite the shock and horror of an attack on a school in this way, that number of dead are down in the noise compared to the many thousands who die in unrelated accidents and murders every day. This is what domestic terrorism is about, not doomsday scenarios where there is anyone tangible to lash out at after. That terrorist could be an individual, they could be muslim or even christian the point is that people are motivated to kill every day, some for a cause, some for whatever is in their head.

These things can only be fixed by negotiation with the main terrorist body, leaving only the usual isolated unhappy weidos with a handful of guns and improvised explosives that every country has living within them. Fighting terrorism, especially in ways that alienate the populations they live among, only adds to their ranks. History proves that.

Each postcard has "BOOM" in capitals, as well as the word "SCHOOL"
used in the addresses, while the rest is written properly.

Also, the postcards with "jihad" spelled "jiahd" are the only
ones that mention Marion in the address.

Marion County School
Marion Technical Institute
North Marion High School

Someone pointed out before, its a techincal-like writing style,
it reminds me of how my drafting teacher used to write.
