Fear Mongoring - Again

Reported by Ellen - February 18, 2005

Today, Fox's Studio B with Shepard Smith continued the 'terrorist fear' theme.

Smith went to Washington correspondant, Catherine Herridge, who reported that sleeper cells are in the United States per FBI Director Robert Mueller. Of course this all ran under the banner that said, 'Sleeper Cells in U.S.' She said that the FBI is now putting a big emphasis on border patrol and ports, trying to keep terrorists from getting in.

FBI Director, Robert Mueller said that they have been tracking various extremist sleeper cells here in the United States. He added that the U.S. is fertile ground for potential recruitment of radicalized American Muslim converts. There are two areas they are focusing on -- prisons and university campuses.

Comment: The fear continues. Why should we be afraid, after all, George Bush is our president and a lot of people say they feel 'safer' with him as our president. Let's hope that any 'intelligiance' that is gathered on these 'sleeper cells' that are active in the U.S., is followed through with local authorities, etc. instead of just sitting on a piece of paper. Well, at least they told the terrorists where they are looking - prisons and university campuses. It's also nice to know that they've 'just placed' a big emphasis on ports and border patrol, 3 1/2 years AFTER 9/11! Our borders have seen millions of illegal aliens come through over the past few years and they're only 'now' putting a big emphasis on them? As for our ports, we keep hearing that the money hasn't been there to sufficiently protect our ports, maybe some has now been diverted that way?
