The death of Osama bin Laden and the expectation of a trove of intelligence derived from his computers have caused the FBI to ramp up its efforts to prevent a terrorist attack.

Agents will push ahead stagnant prosecutions as a means of mitigating the potential for lone wolf terrorists to strike out of frustration or revenge, the official said. Field offices have been authorized to expand their surveillance and monitoring to include hundreds of subjects. Potential terrorism suspects might be arrested on valid charges not related to terrorism to keep them off the streets, officials said.

What really caught my attention was this paragraph

The bureau is "back on a post-9/11 war footing," said a senior counterterrorism official who sought anonymity because they are not authorized to speak with the press.

Expand survellience and possibly arresting "potential terrorists" on charges not relating to terrorism just to keep them off the streets. I wonder how long the list of "potential terrorists" is.

In New York, the police are swabbing backpacks and shoulder bags and using Sabre 4000 chemical and biological agent detectors at subway entrances.

It looks like operations are being conducted in other countries to.

More special forces going into Pakistan and Somalia.

. A large number of special forces and special operations troops ready to enter the country, tracking down leads derived from intelligence before Osama's death and ready to pounce on disseminated from his media cache.

Elsewhere, a multinational special operations team conducted ground raids in Somalia, capturing several leaders of the country's al-Qaida splinter group, al-Shabaab, according to foreign press reports. Two American officials were not able to confirm these accounts.

Hopefully this huge 200000 pound monster just implodes on itself from an economic collapse and the nightmare (that one anyways) will be over.

I just KNEW this would be the result of the announcement.

Surprised they even waited 2 days for it to be made known. They must have been slow after the royal wedding celebrations.

Watch your Ps and Qs folks.
