Will They Have Better Videos This Time?

WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2007 — Mimicking the hijackers who executed the Sept. 11 attacks, insurgents reportedly tied to al Qaeda in Iraq considered using student visas to slip terrorists into the United States to orchestrate a new attack on American soil.

Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, recently testified that documents captured by coalition forces during a raid of a safe house believed to house Iraqi members of al Qaeda six months ago "revealed [AQI] was planning terrorist operations in the U.S."

At the time, Maples offered little additional insight into the possible terror plot. ABC News, however, has learned new details of what remains a classified incident that has been dealt with at the highest levels of government.

(snip)

Sources tell ABC News that the plot may have involved moving between 10 and 20 suspects believed to be affiliated with al Qaeda in Iraq into the United States with student visas — the same method used by the 19 al Qaeda terrorists who struck American targets on Sept. 11.
Although more likely, this is just pathetic propaganda intended to try to link Iraq to 9/11.

Fun game! Count how many times is "Al Qaeda" and "Iraq" mentioned in the same sentence in this article.

"Will They Have Better Videos This Time?"

better than what? all the videos from the airports associated with 9/11 were MIA weren't they? except 1 lousy still shot of atta going thru a metal detector (with his boxcutter) at an entirely different airport where his arabic copy of "how to fly a 767" was left behind. how could they fly a 767 into the wtc1 without their trusty arabic manual?
hey pinch! is a 767 more difficult to fly than a navy jet fighter? ask your wingman!

"As the heat of the fire intensified, the joints on the most severely burned floors gave way, causing the perimeter wall columns to bow outward and the floors above them to fall. The buildings collapsed within ten seconds, hitting bottom with an estimated speed of 200 km/h"
MIT Professor Thomas Eager

help! it's hot enough to melt the steel joints in here!
