Al Qaeda is training fighters that \"look western\", says DCI.

"They are bringing operatives into that region for training -- operatives that wouldn't attract your attention if they were going through the customs line at Dulles (airport outside Washington) with you when you were coming back from overseas," Hayden said during an interview on NBC's television show Meet the Press.

This could pose a problem, the security at airports has already gone up, and is one step away from it's highest rateing.
All it would take is another shoe bomber type, and things will get hectic again. Iwonder how they know these things, yet can't seem to do much about it.
Reminds me of the movie "The hunting party", where war criminals are supposedly wanted by all these countries, yet seem to be elusive.

Now, if only the reports would offer a little more datail in how the info came about.

I have a very deep concern that this is the sort of story that is put out so the "powers" can arrest ordinary citizens on the suspicion of being a part of al-Qaida.

Also, theses stories have appeared in various forms starting with looking for the blond-haired blue-eyed Bosnian al-Qaida, but the point now is to churn the fear factor to frothing over.

That may be the case, how ever the threat is real enough. Not more than a week or two I posted a thread about the FBI info about terrorists in the US. These cells have been tracked since the 80s, and infiltration is a serious issue.

Point is though, dispite the fact, no one can afford to let their guard down.
Especially these days, with the spring offensive just around the corner.

Bosnia, Circassia and the Caucasus in general are a dangerous source of operatives for muslim extremists because nobody on earth would suspect them of being muslim.

That said, even western converts could pose a threat because generally converts are the strictest adherents to the religion they join.

This could pose a real problem for security, because it would mean even racial profiling is worthless.

Good food for thought, and here’s another little appetizer: what if something happens to Obama while he’s leading in the election polls? We could have a whole slew of urban ‘terrorist’ cells pop up. Seems to me that the races have been getting along much too well for the liking of the PTB. Also, if you’ve got all races on the terrorist suspect list, you can blame your false flags on whoever is most convenient. Divide and conquer at a whole new level.

Out side of the "polical ramifications", there is the fact that foreign groups have used infiltration techniques to gain advantage over their target interests. From Chinese technology espionage, to extreamist islamic groups, and soviet spies in the Federal depts, there is a continued threat from groups even those unknown.

The use of moles and double agents never ended after the Cold War, as a fact fo the matter, they increased and did so with better techniques than before, especially with current technology advancing as it is. Just imagine what a spy could do with the thumb drive, before the public had them.

Industry and Military assets are the top targets for foreign powers to select as god only knows why. Point is, awareness is needed one don't have to be scared or pushed into a corner, it is only being aware that helps defeat possable unknowns from remaining hidden.

It's nothard to recognise what don't seem to fit in, and takeing note of that simple observance is step one.
