Fed. Investigations found them? (4.00 / 14)
I read through the list of "events" that were pre-empted by, as claimed by Bushie, our federal investigations or our partners.
* Bomb several sites in Britain in mid-2004.
* Attack Westerners at several places in Karachi, Pakistan, in spring 2003.
* Attack Heathrow Airport using hijacked commercial airliners in 2003.
* Carry out a large-scale bombing in Britain in spring 2004.
* Attack ships in the Arabian Gulf in late 2002/2003.
* Attack ships in the Straits of Hormuz, the narrow opening between the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea, in 2002.
* Attack a tourist site outside the United States in 2003.
Note how many of them most likely were discovered by our partners' intel networks instead of ours..
