There is also this thread about a strike in Somalia. Don't know if they are related, but maybe some info was recovered from that strike that initiated the search in NYC?


Did on...

I was thinking the same thing. They may have found something related then reacted only to find that they have flown the coup in queens and are now on the loose. They will have to address congress.

Keep the people scared and distracted, then you can justify anything you like.

I'm not saying this is definitely being used to fear monger, but why release any info in relation to it being a "terrorism related" search so early?
Especially when there is no mention of any arrests...

Seems odd that they would release just enough info to scare people. A little too convenient IMO.

Guess we'll see though.

And no need to be scared, you're more likely to be struck by lightning or keel over from heart attack in the next hour than be harmed in any terrorist incident.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who was briefed by FBI officials, said he couldn't discuss much of the case because many of the details were still classified.
"There was nothing imminent, and they are very good now at tracking potentially dangerous actions and this was preventive," Schumer said.

He added that the law enforcement action was unrelated to President Barack Obama's visit Monday to New York. ___

Just an additional piece of info from the Chicago Tribune.

With Senator Schumer receiving a briefing.

Normal reasons
1) If people hear about it with out hearing it first from the FBI then they may panic.

You mean hearing the story from Congress? I am confused.

2) So the congress people know why they are being recalled.

Confused, again, "we are recalling you to let you know you have been recalled"? I am totally lost.

Conspiracy reasons
1) Create panic to better bring in a false flag.

This I agree with, make people think the threat is real and brewing for weeks before a false-flag.

2) To make people concerned and more likely to bug out, making those least likely to follow along blindly easier to identify.

Apathy and affluenza are the two biggest ailments that our country suffers from...no one is going anywhere, at least not with a little scare like this.

The low-flying jets over Flushing were for the US Open men's final match that started at 4pm.

A story I referenced earlier said the raids were the result of previous law enforcement surveillance of individuals. If they were under surveillance, why no arrests? Wouldn't they want to hit the residences while the suspects were home? Nothing like gathering physical evidence and statements at the same time. Now these suspects have some time to get their stories straight and to head for the hills.

Someone mentioned earlier that this could be an attempt to flush these guys out. Panicked suspects make mistakes.

Something is odd indeed.

For what it is worth... just a bit more info. The address to Congress has everyone baffled.


Separately, federal authorities started briefing a series of senior lawmakers in Congress about the case.


www.cjbk.com...


The part in bold is the one that scares me most. Patriot Act part II anyone?

Federal agents to congress:
"The terrorists we were trying to catch in the act got away, If we just had a couple more tools we would have had them!" "Here's what we need"

Oh yea, people will be begging for it.

Ok it's possible they have had them under watch for a while, they had no info on an imminent attack so they were watching to see what they were upto and who they meet with. Then the two suspects diappeared ? So they raid the places because they can not find the two guys and they are hoping to get a lead on tracking them down.

Found this from the NY Post, so who knows.


The suspected terrorist, described as an ethnic Afghani resident of the Midwest in his 20s — who may have previously lived in Queens — had driven to New York City in recent days and visited multiple apartments in Queens over the weekend, sources said.

Afterwards he returned to the Midwest under surveillance, sources said, and is being monitored as part of an ongoing terrorism investigation being conducted by the U.S. Attorneys Office in Brooklyn.

The Joint Terrorism Task Force executed search warrants on several homes that he visited, including at least one at Parsons Boulevard and 41st Avenue, sources said.

The unidentified man, who sources believe recently traveled to Afghanistan, left New York City yesterday.

I get it, 1 million people show up to tell Congress and Obama that
they are chock F.O.S. so they needed a quick "Terror threat" to
get everyone to fall back in line.

Go ahead. Blow stuff up, we don't care anymore and you're still
on your way out! You 've abused the people enough and they've
simply had it with you clowns.

Forget your Congressional retirement package, it won't fit in your
cell at Leavenworth.

Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror -
Gets boring, don't it? We're not going to allow you to distract us.

The part about the FBI addressing SENIOR members of Congress is referring to a Senate Sub-Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs or the Sub-Committee on Terrorism and Homeland Security.

Those Senior members do not comprise all of Congress but the following members:

Terrorism and Homeland Security

Benjamin L. Cardin, Chairman (MD)
Jon Kyl, Ranking Member (AZ)
Herb Kohl (WI)
Dianne Feinstein (CA)
Charles E. Schumer (NY)
Richard J. Durbin (IL)
Edward E. Kaufman (DE)
Orrin G. Hatch (UT)
Jeff Sessions (AL)
John Cornyn (TX)
Tom Coburn (OK)

Homeland Security and Government Affairs

Joseph I. Lieberman Chairman (ID) (CT)
Susan M. Collins Ranking Member (ME)
Carl Levin (MI)
Tom Coburn (OK)
Daniel K. Akaka (HI)
John McCain (AZ)
Thomas R. Carper (DE)
George V. Voinovich (OH)
Mark L. Pryor (AR)
John Ensign (NV)
Mary L. Landrieu (LA)
Lindsey Graham (SC)
Claire McCaskill (MO)
Robert F. Bennett (UT)
Jon Tester (MT)
Roland Burris (IL)
Michael Bennet (CO)

Not all members would have to be there for a Briefing. Outside of the Chairman and Ranking Member, attendance is not mandatory or can be by proxy (usually appointed Staff).

EDIT: Scheduled for Wednesday with the Senate Sub-Committee on Terrorism and Homeland Security is the following Hearing with the FBI already...Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

not sure of the correlation, if any at all, but I was on the phone with a client a short while back and he tells me to hang on, too noisy. he said fighter jets were racing towards queens. then I saw the news break. odd and a bit scary.

Funny you should mention that today. I woke up at about 10:30 am central to four jets over my house with full afterburners. This is Green Bay, WI. There's no Air Force bases, and we had BlackHawks fly over for the Packer game last night, not jets.

Probably unrelated, but it was odd. And they were flying east, too.

Considering that to date, the sacrificing of American Civil Liberties at the expense of a false sense of Homeland Security has in these 8 years thus far netted only 1 group of suspected Terrorists that turned out not to be Terrorists after all, at this point in time, the government, DHS, and FBI have to look like they are doing something useful to protect Americans for the high cost of their loss of Freedom.

One carefully planned, but vague, Press Op is all that they need to keep the American Public sold for another year.

If they had found something they would have proudly said so in these Press Releases. For the fact that they aren't tooting their horn very loudly with details means they came home empty handing from their fishing expedition.

So the NY Post is about to be raided?

Because if they have just released info into the national news identifying a man who is supposed to be under surveillance, they'll be in some deep crap.

Or, more likely, this is a part of the BS story to cover what is really happening.

No info like this would reach the press if a guy was under surveillance, it's just not possible. If he's being watched, they are NOT going to release such detailed information to any press.

There's a lot about this that is looking more and more suspicious by the hour.
