Is a terror attack imminent?
Let's pray for our Lord's hand of protection to keep us safe after this latest news item today.
CNN is reporting the following:
"Interpol has issued a rare global security alert for 85 suspected al Qaeda-linked terrorists wanted by Saudi Arabia. The 'orange alert,' issued on Tuesday, comes after Saudi Arabia asked for Interpol's help last week in apprehending the 83 Saudis and two Yemenis. Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said the alert is unprecedented. 'Never before has Interpol been asked to alert the world about so many dangerous fugitives at one time,' Noble said in a news release. He also pointed out that the alert comes ahead of the 16th anniversary of the first World Trade Center bombing in New York. 'Therefore must be especially vigilant of fugitive al Qaeda terrorists,' Noble said. Six people were killed and more than 1,000 injured on February 26, 1993, when a 1,200-pound (540 kilogram) bomb exploded in a rented van in the parking garage below Two World Trade Center. It is rare for the kingdom to announce that some of its most wanted terrorists are on the loose. It is also unusual for Saudi Arabia to ask for help in finding them. By asking for Interpol's help, Saudi Arabia is sending a clear message that it thinks the men are dangerous."
Did you notice the language that was being used in the above excerpt? Sobering huh? Is President Obama's "test" (you know, Vice President Biden's "mark my words" prediction) at hand? Clearly, security agencies are concerned.
Even greater fears are being raised over this vast terror network after the United States is now reporting that some of its most deadly nerve gas may be missing, and President Obama's order for the U.S. Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) to immediately suspend research with deadly agents after the FBI discovering some of the most deadly pathogens from that lab may, also, be missing. This is on the heels of other news that the frozen remains of two mice infected with the bubonic plague that are missing from a New Jersey bioterror research facility, and the facility waited seven weeks to report the incident to federal and state authorities! Remarkably, all of this is in the news just 3 weeks after it's reported that 40 al-Qaeda terrorists were found dead after exposure to the bubonic plague.
It is also interesting to note that this U.S. Army lab ordered closed down by President Obama is the same one responsible for the September 2001 Anthrax attacks upon the United States that killed 5, injured 17, and kept the US on “knife-edge” for weeks.
We need to be vigilant now more than ever. Continue to pray for God's mercy and protection, and by all means stay alert, stay alive, and if you see suspicious people doing suspicious things notify your local authorities immediately.
