Becoming Complacent

In an exclusive NewsMax interview, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III says Osama bin Laden and his group desperately want to obtain nuclear devices and explode them in American cities, especially New York and Washington, D.C. He also says the Bureau believes the terrorist leader continues to communicate with al-Qaida cells, some of which remain in the U.S.

Mueller states the threat of a nuclear attack is so real he sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night worrying about that possibility.

Perhaps the most troubling statement is
that Mueller worries that "we are in danger of becoming complacent."

"Al-Qaida is tremendously patient and thinks nothing about taking years to infiltrate persons in and finding the right personnel and opportunity to undertake an attack.

"And we cannot become complacent, because you look around the world, and whether it's London or Madrid or Bali or recently Casablanca or Algiers, attacks are taking place."

Mueller adds the U.S. must remain vigilant. He says our security efforts must "adapt to the new threat landscape."

He then adds: "We are going to be hit at some point. It's just a question of when and to what extent."

The Democrats and their leftwing supporters are responsible for much of the complacency, but the Republicans must shoulder some of the blame also. Those who have failed to secure our borders and want amnesty for illegals all will be responsible if al-Qaida succeds in another attack on our nation. I only hope, if it happens, that the people rise up and drag these traitors from their plush offices and deliver justice on the spot.
