Janet Napolitano on Attempted Al-Qaeda Plane Bombing: “The System Worked”

Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit

So DHS has a system in place to let us know when we’ve been killed. I feel so much better – death-wise that is… It just gives me the warm fuzzies knowing DHS has our backs – not.

The Sun: COPS fear that 25 British-born Muslims are plotting to bomb Western airliners. The system is sure working:

The fanatics, in five groups, are now training at secret terror camps in Yemen.

It was there London-educated Umar Abdulmutallab, 23, prepared for his Christmas Day bid to blow up a US jet.

The British extremists in Yemen are in their early 20s and from Bradford, Luton and Leytonstone, East London.

They are due to return to the UK early in 2010 and will then await internet instructions from al-Qaeda on when to strike.

A Scotland Yard source said: “The great fear is Abdulmutallab is the first of many ready to attack planes and kill tens of thousands.

“We know there are four or five radicalised British Muslim cells in the Yemen.

“They are due back within months when they will be under constant surveillance.”

The 25 suspects, of Pakistani and Somali descent, were radicalised in UK mosques.

Some had been to university and studied engineering or computer sciences.

Others were former street gang members.

Special Branch monitored them as they flew to Yemen, in the Middle East, from British airports in the spring and summer.

In almost every case, their tickets were paid for in cash and bought less than a week before travel.

The source added: “Imams would have promised them rewards in heaven for becoming suicide bombers prepared to kill Westerners.”

PM Gordon Brown and Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson were being briefed.

The warnings came as another Nigerian was last night held in Detroit on the same flight attacked on Christmas Day. It later emerged the man had fallen ill.

Al-Qaeda in Yemen warned the West four days before Friday’s attack that a bombing was imminent.

Terrorist Mohammed al-Kalwi issued the video threat in the wake of a Yemeni airstrike on a militant training camp.

Al-Kalwi was reportedly killed in another airstrike on Thursday.

President Barack Obama’s administration is to review all airport security.


Senator Max Baucus Drunk / Intoxicated on Senate Floor – Shouts Down Wicker

Hey Montana! I’d really like to hear from our neighbors next door – is this really what you had in mind when you elected Baucus? Is this what you wanted in the way of a ‘leader?’ Does he actually speak for you? Kick the bum out guys… Montana is one of the best states in the union and deserves much better than this scumbag.

First he goes the infidelity route, then the corruption route, and finally the pay-off route… Had enough Montana?


Becky Kelley – Where’s the Line to See Jesus?

From: The 912 Project


“Where’s the Line to See Jesus?”
(An Original Song)
Performed by father and daughter, Steve Haupt and Becky Kelley
Inspired by grandson, Spencer Reijgers

Written by Steve Haupt and Chris Loesch

Recorded at Shock City Studios, Saint Louis, MO
Produced by Chris Loesch

Video by Robbie Haupt and Greg Haupt

The story behind the song, as told by Steve Haupt:

“While at the mall last year, my 4 year old grandson saw kids lined up excitedly to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of God’s son, with the innocence of a child, he asked his mom, “where’s the line to see Jesus”? If Christmas is Jesus’ birthday, why don’t we see Him more? As his grandpa, I was so happy that little Spencer understood the meaning of Christmas at such a tender age, and then the words for a song were jotted down in just a few minutes. The song was inspired by my grandson, and the message was inspired by my Savior. Out of the mouths of babes come profound truths that many adults can not understand. Hopefully Spencer’s observation and our song will cause people to reflect on the love of Jesus, and the certainty that one day we will all stand in line to see Jesus. Merry Christmas everyone.”
