When a man is apprehended with a weapons, a map of a military installation and jihadist effects, the natural response is to assume the situation is terrorist-related. Obama says otherwise ...

Does it matter? These goons are still going away for a long time. A serious disaster was avoided and no one got hurt. And yet again another attack on verbage from Obama. Good grief.

You think Obama's failure to publically admit the attacks and arrests of Muslim jihaddists as such is just an attack on verbage? Please, go soak your head and maybe you'll absorb a clue.

Well, we all are happy that the last administration dealt so efficiently with terrorist threads.

As the 9/11 commission revealed, under Mr. Bush's administration the US intelligence community addressed the pending 9/11 strikes in a preemptive manner and kept us all from harm's way.

If the terrorists see that this president is weak in his stance toward them, they of course will step up the attacks. If we can catch them before the attack they know we will not treat them as enemy combatants which they are but like any of our own citizens that commit a crime (and that punishment is easier here than where they come from). They will look at it as a win, win. They will say if we are succesful we will kill, if not we will be in the papers and have more than enough publicity to recruit others.

Indeed, sir, recent history confirms that terrorists run in horror when faces with the enemy combatant status instead of the criminal justice ordinary terrorist status.

Just as capital punishment deters vicious criminals from acting on their murderous urges.

The enemy combatant legal status practically ended the terrorist threat our country faced during the last administration and delivered us into peace again.

A single, unnamed quote. How is this commentary relevant to the actual story. It is not. No mention of anything Obama said or did, certainly no quotes from Obama.

I wanna see somebody fire any weapon, from the hip, with a .50 cal round. Might as well put a 155 howitzer on the back of a pick up truck and fire on the move.

Just another copy cat, wanna be terrorist.

And if he declares war on a religion, like some posters in here would like, they'll escalate attacks even more.
