Sleeper Cells Among Us?

February 21, 2005

Here's what concerns me about last week's testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Some of our top people say it may be impossible to stop another terror attack, that it could come with weapons of mass destruction and millions could be killed.

That concerns me, of course, but what concerns me more is whether political correctness and the attempt by politicians to win the Muslim vote is keeping our government from doing everything it can to get them before they get us.

We're told there are sleeper cells in America and more may be coming.

How did they get here, where are they and how do they get their support?

Where are those peace-loving Muslim-Americans?

Why aren't they rooting out and turning in these fanatics?

It surely would accrue to their favor and image.

I hope you're watching "24" every Monday night on Fox broadcast.

It is a revealing look at how these sleeper cells operate among us.

If another attack occurs and millions of us are killed, what will government do?

What it would do then it should do now and fast.
