With Attorney General Holder’s investigation of CIA operatives who utilized enhanced-interrogation techniques on detainees, including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the Obama administration’s downgrade of the War on Terror to “overseas contingency operations,” and the administration’s release of terrorists captured by heroic U.S. military personnel, what should be a preposterous question to ask the President of the United States, now needs to be asked. In the interest of America’s national security, how will President Obama treat the terrorists in America?

According to a previously disclosed 2009 Virginia Terrorism Threat Assessment, prepared by Virginia’s Fusion Center, “Al-Qa’ida, Al-Shabaab, HAMAS, Hizballah, Jama’at al-Tabligh, Jama’at ul Fuqra, Lashkar-e Tayyiba, and the Muslim Brotherhood” are in America. “While most of these groups are known to have individuals that currently live, work, or frequently travel through Virginia, some groups were included… based on world events.”

The 215-page report found, “the most frequently encountered groups” in Virginia “were al-Qa’ida, HAMAS, and Hizballah. Occasionally encountered groups and movements included Sunni Extremists, Jama’at Tabligh, Palestinian Islamic Jihadb , Islamic Jihad Unionc, Muslim Brotherhood, and the Taliban.”

The report says: “While there is no intelligence that indicates terrorists are currently planning attacks… the presence of extremists, evidence of trends linked to terrorism, and the abundance of potential targets, suggests that the potential for Virginia to be targeted remains significant. Although international terrorist groups routinely espouse their intent to launch large-scale attacks within the U.S., the majority of activities… comes from criminal activities that raise funds(italics CFP) for attacks overseas. It is important to note, however, that the presence of supporters of such groups could be leveraged to support operatives preparing for an attack within the U.S… Also of concern is… the possibility of money raised at rallies or other demonstrations of solidarity could be diverted to benefit terrorist entities.”
