The recent arrest and detention of terrorists in Denmark and Germany, with apparent, documented plans for attacks on Ramstein Air Force Base and other targets certainly gives concern that there is the possibility of an attack on the anniversary on the 9-11-01 attacks in the US. There seems to be no doubt that the groups involved were actually planning some sort of attack, at least on Ramstein, and perhaps other targets frequented by US military personnel in Germany, and, possibly, other European locations.
As usual, the Secretary of DHS almost immediately sounded the alarm for a potential attack on the US during the anniversary. Aside from the seeming fact that the Screstary, Michael Chertoff almost automatically sounds the alarm when other countries have done investigations that could, politically, be duplicated in the US, there is no public information that indicates a potential attack in the US iteself. That does not mean it could not happen. There should be heightened alerts to prevent such an occurance. My problem is the immediate public relations presentations by him, as if he had information, but was not sharing it. From my sources, he had no real information, other than what was given him by foreign government sources, but his minions simply 'decided' that the same info applied to the US.
America should always be prepared for possible attack, but this preparation should not be diluted or reduced in its effect by an idiot shooting off his mouth just to say something in the press to appear that he knows what he is talking about.
Chertoff is being touted as the next Attorney-General. Hopefully the administration will change before that happens.
