Yesterday we were all made aware of the fact that planes were being held and packages searched in an effort to stop a terrorist plot. According to the Washington Post two packages were found that were,
“mailed from Yemen and addressed to synagogues in Chicago contained explosive material and represented a ‘credible terrorist threat,’ President Obama said Friday”
Thanks to quick action by U.S. counter-terrorism officials they were able to keep these packages from getting through.
“The two packages were intercepted at separate locations, one on a UPS plane at East Midlands Airport near Nottingham, England, and the other at a FedEx facility in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. Officials provided no details on the kind of explosives found, but they said they were looking at the possibility that the substance used was PETN, the same explosive used in the Christmas Day plot (read ‘pantie-bomber’).”
This seems to be a serious threat, despite what Democrat Betty McCollum of MN-04 may think about al-Queda “not posing a threat.”

But never fear, our ‘fearless leader’ will not be deterred from ferocious campaigning in an effort to save some seats for his party. According to Yahoo News,
“The White House says President Barack Obama’s weekend travel plans to campaign ahead of the midterm elections will not be affected by a terror probe on three continents.”
Good to know that keeping a stranglehold on our liberty is more important to him than personal safety or national security. May it all be for naught, in three days we can make him wish he would of just gone to the golf course instead…
Three more days, make it happen…
