[Ed. – Osama bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is on the run…]
The report begins in the streets of Baghdad. As two army soldiers drive through Baghdad in a convoy headed for the green zone, a car bomb explosion is caught on tape. Fearing another car bomb could go off soon, which so often happens, the soldiers make a run for the safety of the green zone – when they’re out of harm’s way, they say:
“Well, that’s better than a cup of coffee in the morning…”
It is a truly chilling event in an urban setting where there are so many people. But if Al Qaeda has its way, the same scenario will play out in American urban areas. In a recent issue of Inspire Magazine, regarded as the Vanity Fair of Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda calls for Jihad car bomb attacks on certain American cities – including Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York and northern Virginia where the CIA is headquartered. Ron Bee is a former State Department and Pentagon employee and was asked what would happen if a car bomb were to go off at a major American shopping mall, and what would be the impact on the American economy?
“People would stay home, they wouldn’t go to the malls. They’d go home to wait to hear that (all was OK)… we all know what happened after 9/11: everybody stayed home. They didn’t go shopping. They didn’t fly. The airlines went under, so it could have a major impact.”
