Foiled Terror Attack on New York

"Odd said the duck, very odd."  

You have to have read one of my kids books called Duckat to understand that. It is well worth the 2 minutes!

A few days ago the FBI saved the day by foiling a plot by terrorists to blow up synagogues and shoot down military planes.  Wow!  Awesome work!  Thank you to all the men and women who are to credit for taking these 4 terrorists down.

Ironically, on that same day our President gave a speech.  I don't care to comment on everything else he said - maybe later.  One thing he did say was that he planned to move the 240 "detainees" in Gitmo (I can't spell the long name) to prisons in the U.S.  What is wrong with that idea many rightfully ask?

The 4 terrorists that tried to attack New York City were radical muslims, but they were homegrown.  They were recruited in our prison systems to do this evil - YES I CALLED IT EVIL! SHOOTING DOWN MILITARY PLANES IN AN EFFORT TO CRASH THEM IN CROWED NEW YORK STREETS IS EVIL!  

This caused me to ponder at the thought of the 240 "detainees" being thrust into our prison system with all of the worst sorts of people America has produced.  Whether or not any of the 240 ever see the light of day is besides the point, they will be given the "opportunity" to recruit more Americans who will eventually be released into society.  How many more homegrown radical muslims will we have to worry about in the future.

Did anyone hear the president mention the foiled attack?  I'm fairly certain he was briefed on it by the time his speech was finalized.  

Did the president mention in his speech that part of his "new" plan to fight terrorism was to cut funding by 40%  for the very people that stopped this attack.  The Department of Homeland Security is apparently having budget problems, so the next attack on New York will have to be stopped by fewer people and less money.

We can afford to spend billions on GM, but not a few million to stop terrorists.
