ANYONE FIGURE THIS STORY OUT YET?:

Tight security in New York, plotter may be in US (Chris Michaud, 10/10/05, Reuters)

Asked on "Fox News Sunday" whether a suspected plotter had made it into the country, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said, "That's certainly part of the investigation, yes." [...]

Kelly said New York would remain on heightened alert until U.S. intelligence authorities in Iraq could pin down the credibility of the current threat. Beefed-up subway security would be in force again on Monday, Kelly told CNN, and the situation would be monitored "on an hourly basis."

Carol Charest, who was visiting from Massachusetts with several family members, said they were initially hesitant about riding the subway but ended up doing just that, "and it was fine." She said the visible police presence was reassuring.

Kelly and Mayor Michael Bloomberg have differed with federal officials over the credibility of the threat, which was based on an uncorroborated claim to Iraqi authorities that prompted raids by American and Iraqi forces and resulted in two suspects being taken into custody in Iraq.

A third was being sought, and the New York Times reported that he had been detained, also in Iraq.


How can they be overreacting if the 4th guy hasn't been found and may be here?

They should be acting like HillBilly did - just get under the desk with a cigar and a fat chick.

Monica wasn't that fat - just zaftig.

Anyway, fat-bottomed girls make the rockin' world go 'round.
