What part of...

...they want to kill your infidel ass... are you just not getting?

-- NEW YORK CITY -- The men ordered and accepted delivery of materials they believed were bomb-making ingredients, authorities said. But investigators said they made sure the materials the suspects received were inert.

The four men are in custody and are expected to be arraigned Thursday in White Plains federal court on terrorism-related counts.
Another attack foiled, but guess what folks... this is a question of when... not if.
Since the 9/11 attacks, authorities have arrested suspects in a number of alleged plots against area targets including the Fort Dix New Jersey military base, John F. Kennedy Airport, the Herald Square subway station in Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
And, of course... there's the usual colouful noms des guerre...
The suspects were identified as James Cromitie, also known as Abdul Rahman; David Williams, also known as Daoud or simply DL; Onta Williams, also known as Hamza; and Laguerre Payen, also known as Amin and Almondo.

RELATED: Looks like the Senate gets it...
In a strange almost anti-Obama bipartisan moment the U.S. senate voted 90-6 to block the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to the United States and also denied the Obama administration the funding to close the place down.

LAST WORD: Hope, Change and...

...maybe Cheney got to him...
"Even when this process is complete, there may be a number of people who cannot be prosecuted for past crimes, but who nonetheless pose a threat to the security of the United States."

Some human rights advocates criticized Obama for adopting the idea that some detainees are not entitled to a trial.

The president stopped short of saying he would institutionalize indefinite detention for future captives.

Looks like no similarities there as they cut across the broad stratum of American life ....just like our home-grown guys do also.

the the thing is, for the authorities to be successful, they have to turn back attacks 24/7... for the terrorists to win, they just have to break through once.

it's comin' folks... i've been waitin' for the other shoe to drop since 9/11.

and whatever you might think of bush/cheney... it didn't happen on their watch.

let's see if "the one" is equally successful over the next four years.
