The Fear Continues - Australian Terrorists?

Reported by Donna - August 10, 2005

Today on Studio B with guest host Rick Folbaum, Bret Baier did one of his prepackaged reports from the Pentagon.

Under the banner of War on Terror (and they didn't talk about Iraq this time) Baier explained that there was a new terrorist tape out there.

He said that not only was it 'slickly produced' but it was 2 hours long.

He said the tape contained training of multi-ethnic terrorists (Comment: guess there goes racial profiling) and in particular a long speech given by an English speaker who sounded Australian.

It was thought by the Pentagon to be authentic but dismissed by the Pentagon as being the same propoganda, used for recruiting terrorists. (Comment: How these people, hiding out in caves, can do a 'slickly produced' 2 hour film, is beyond me. Seems to me they have some good money backing)

However, the tape did show an RPG shooting at a helicopter then it showed wreckage of the helicopter along with U.S. military tags. Baier said this may be connected to the helicopter that was shot down last month when they were on a rescue mission to save Navy Seals.

Comment: Today they didn't show the banner 'War on Terror' when they spoke about Iraq. And believe me, it was another horrible day in Iraq - either 4 or 5 soldiers were killed, whether you want to believe Folbaum or the Fox banner (they said two different things). I think they know that the Iraq war is becoming quite unpopular and they don't want the War on Terror to be stigmitized by it. I'll continue to monitor the use of this banner.

With all the talk the last couple of weeks on terrorists, we found out that the face of terrorism is not what we thought. A lot of the terrorists are more educated and come from middle and upper class households. Now we have a tape that claims to have multi-ethnic terrorist training camps.

So now, we have to fear everyone. The next terrorist could be from Australia, or maybe even Texas.
