Details about foiled terrorist plots

--posted by Tony Garcia on 2/09/2006

Why must we continue to fight? Why is crucial to engage in every possible means to thwart and defeat the enemy (which are Muslim "extremists" and their friendly countries)?

Because they are still out to get us.

And why should we treat them as enemy captives, as prisoners of war, instead of as mere criminals? Because they are actually members of the enemy in the war. People like the shoe bomber are not some five-and-dime thug or even the Mob. They are the enemy. Citizens the American Taliban should not be going to trial to see what crimes they committed and dish out some meaningless jail sentence. They should simply be charged with treason and have it out. Prisoners, like the shoe bomber, found guilty should be interrogated as necessary (tortured if needed) and executed when no longer beneficial to us. They should find the same trial as Moussaoui...the death penalty. In fact, there should be no trial. If they are the enemy they sit in a cell until the war on terror is over...and if we need information from them then we go and get it as we see fit. (Torture for intelligence I accept...hope we don't need it, but I accept it. Torture just to make the prisoner of war's life miserable I am against.)

Why so harsh? Because they are acting, in a time of war, against the country with the specific purpose of defeating the country. Bush gave us some more details recently about foiled attacks:
The president filled in details on Thursday.

He said that Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks who was captured in 2003, had already begun planning the West Coast operation in October, just after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. One of Mohammed's key planners was Hambali, the alleged operations chief of the al-Qaida related terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah. Instead of recruiting Arab hijackers, Hambali found Southeast Asian men who would be less likely to arouse suspicion and who were sent to meet with Osama bin Laden, Bush said.

Under the plot, the hijackers were to use shoe bombs to blow open the cockpit door of a commercial jetliner, take control of the plane and crash it into the Library Tower in Los Angeles, since renamed the US Bank Tower, Bush said.
How could we foil this if we were not tapping the incoming calls from known terrorists? And go to a court? Think about this. If "America loving" people like Harry Reid cannot keep their mouth shut in matters of intelligence because they want political gain why should we believe that some judges are also beyond the human nature of talking too much? Going to get a warrant for these foreign intelligence matters means having sensitive information be known to even more people. More people means more possibility of leaks. And now that the enemy knows their calls were being monitored we have lost that avenue for keeping tabs on the enemy.

While people may hate Bush and everything he does they need to keep in perspective the difference between an actual policy dispute from actually harming the nation.

In the meantime...keep tapping those incoming foreign calls from the enemy AND execute the treasonous AND no more court trials for prisoners of war.
