There or here

Posted by Richard on January 23, 2007

If we don’t fight them over there, we’ll have to fight them over here. In fact, we’ll probably have to fight them over here anyway, unless we fight them so hard over there that we disrupt their plans to come over here. Apparently, we’ve already done so at least once:

A U.S. official tells FOX News that documents seized in Iraq last year by American forces suggest Al Qaeda in Iraq was plotting an attack inside the United States by smuggling terrorists into the country on student visas.

The papers were obtained in Iraq about the time that Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed last June, the official, who asked not to be identified, told FOX News.

Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. Gen. Michael Maples referred to the scheme Jan. 11 when he told the Senate Intelligence Committee that "documents captured in a raid on an Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) safehouse revealed AQI was planning terrorist operations in the U.S.," according to the source.

But there’s no indication the documents were new when they were found — and at least one of those suspected of planning the attack has since been "put out of commission," the official said.

In fact, the source said, the U.S. government doesn’t believe the plot ever got off the ground — but instead was disrupted.

I suppose some will argue that AQI would drop any plans for terrorist operations in the U.S. and focus its wrath entirely on apostates, homosexuals, and immodest women, if only we’d withdraw from Iraq. I sincerely doubt it, and think it would be utterly irresponsible to count on that. I much prefer disrupting whatever plans they hatch by putting out of commission as many of them as we can find.
