On the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2011, terror attacks, the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement apparatus continued a feverish, around-the-clock effort to find evidence to corroborate an unfolding terror plot. (But) as (0f) early Sunday morning, none was in hand.
However, the picture authorities were working (on) had been fleshed out substantially since … intelligence from Afghanistan arrived Wednesday.
Authorities now believe, like several self-radicalized American jihadists before them, that the Sept. 11 anniversary plotters journey to jihad began in the U.S., took them to the Afghanistan-Pakistan region in July and had them, according to the CIA informant whose information is the hard bottom of the case, return to the U.S. on Aug. 31 or Sept. 1 to carry out an anniversary bomb plot.
So far, no new intelligence has come in to support or discount the informant account coming in from overseas…
So far, so good for today…but today also isn’t over. This is the revised threat – Americans who have turned traitor after having been propagandized in to thinking that the source of the problem is the United States rather than the Islamo-fascists. If they are American citizens then they will, of course, fit right in…unless they do something overt, no one will really be able to tell who is the Jihadist. Makes it very hard to run them down.
Let’s just hope our intelligence, special forces and law enforcement people are at the top of their form…and that they get the breaks.
