It looks like terrorists are not very active inside the US.


Random Thoughts-

Bank robbers and drug traffickers appear to try harder than terrorists.

No major terror strikes since 911? How did the federal government wipe out an entire crime category? Has this ever been done before?

There have been several attempts on the lives of US Presidents since the early 1960s, even the most intense security available has not been able to wipe out an entire crime category in this area.

Maybe they have caught terrorists, but they keep it a secret?

Doubt it.

Undercover agent details terrorism-sting specifics

“Two who caught a bin Laden cohort in Port Angeles relieved by top terrorist’s death”

Even agencies that maintain secret arrest statistics instantly lift such policies when there is something to brag about:

“Customs and Border Protection agents on marine patrol apprehended the Canadians unloading 547 pounds of “B.C. bud” marijuana off the Deep Creek area about halfway between Port Angeles and Neah Bay at about 1:30 a.m. Monday, authorities said.”

Secret crime fighting in the US probably doesn’t happen much anywhere away from Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.


Still can’t figure out what stops terrorists from entering the US.

How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?

Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Why hasn’t the US Department of Homeland Security been able to stop cocaine and heroin from crossing into the US?

Domestic heroin busts are reported as some sort of law & order success-

Each one is evidence that- 11 years after 911– the US Dept. of Homeland Security is unable to prevent criminal traffic from entering the US.




People trafficking counterfeit sneakers are trying harder than terrorists-

DHS manages warehouses of seized goods- safe enough to walk around in. What if it wasn’t fake handbags, but terrorists and terrorist weapons that were showing up?


It appears that the surveillance society & magic, war on terror crime fighting powers do not work.

Preventing Terrorism?

More like reacting.


It will be easy to spot an attempted strike. Expect the bad guys to be sloppy- the packages they send will look like they were put together by drunken 3rd graders, or Wile E Coyote.


If all the bank robbers in North America decided to become terrorists instead- how would the Dept. of Homeland Security stop them?

Buzz around in gunboats and helicopters?

Check ID cards?

NORAD/US Air Force radar?

Scramble fighter jets?

Inspect cargo shipments at US port cities?

Internal Suspicionless checkpoints and roadblocks?


Politicians tell us we are in a life and death struggle with terrorists who will not stop until they destroy the American way of life. If there is a military solution to this problem-why no draft?
