For years the mantra of the Left was that continuing to fight in Iraq would embolden terrorists and that reversing Bush-era policies would help ease al Qaeda's 'concerns.' Guantanamo Bay prison is on its way to being closed. Fighting has nearly ceased in Iraq and troops are being pulled out. Obama lauded the Muslim world in a Cairo speech.
And in less than a month, five possible plots to attack the United States have been uncovered.
The most famous was the case of Najibullah Zazi and his al Qaeda-linked cell. These alleged terrorists were planning possible attacks on the New York City subway and perhaps on other targets. Even though Zazi is in custody, his cell might still be seeking to attack.
Next, a Jordanian man was arrested after attempting to plant what he thought was a car bomb in downtown Dallas. I hope that this becomes big news, cause it sure is scary. This car bomb, by the way, was placed at the base of a 60-story skyscraper.
Next we have suspicious men possibly casing a Philadelphia subway. This is also scary news, as the men have fled.
And two of the seven men accused of trying to go overseas to help fight a jihad against the United States were attempting to launch an attack in Virginia. They were planning to attack a Marine base, and it sure sounds scary:
It offered no details, except to say that Boyd had undertaken reconnaissance of Quantico and obtained maps of the base in order to plan the attack.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said Boyd also possessed armor piercing ammunition, and had stated that it was "to attack the Americans."
Last, we have a man held today for attempting to blow up a federal building in Chicago. The man was a convert to Islam and would have launched an imminent attack:
Obama's weakness on foreign affairs has already damaged this country. And now not one, but five separate attempts to murder Americans have been uncovered in short succession. If terrorists really believed that the United States was now a peaceful utopia, why would they be planning new massacres.
He was introduced to an undercover FBI agent who began working with him to plot an attack, but Finton was repeatedly told he could walk away at any time, according to the Justice Department.
Eventually, Finton picked the federal building in Springfield as the target and on Wednesday he parked a van he believed carried one ton of explosives at the location, the complaint said.
President Obama, listen up: you must deal with these people. Drop bombs on them or shoot them. Al Qaeda cannot be quenched without American and Jewish blood. Take them out before they take us out.
