Georgie B is awesome, what a guy!!!

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush said Thursday that the U.S.-led global war on terror had "weakened" al Qaeda and cited as proof international efforts that he said had thwarted a terrorist plot to attack Los Angeles.

Members of an al Qaeda affiliate in Asia had planned to crash a commercial airplane into the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles in 2002, Bush said.

In a speech at the National Guard Memorial Building, Bush gave more details on the purported plot.

It was one of a list of 10 terrorist plots that U.S. authorities first released in October 2005.

The list and details from the White House:

1. West Coast airliner plot:

In 2002 the United States disrupted a plot to use shoe bombs to hijack a commercial airliner to attack the tallest building in Los Angeles. The plot was "set in motion" by Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the September 11 attacks.

"Rather than use Arab hijackers, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed sought out young men from Southeast Asia whom he believed would not arouse as much suspicion," Bush said.

2. East Coast airliner plot:

In mid-2003 the United States and a partner disrupted a plot to use hijacked commercial airplanes to attack targets on the East Coast of the United States.

3. The Jose Padilla plot:

In May 2002 the United States disrupted a plot that involved blowing up apartment buildings in the United States. One of the alleged plotters, Jose Padilla, allegedly discussed the possibility of using a "dirty bomb" inside the United States. Bush has designated him an "enemy combatant."

4. 2004 British urban targets plot:

In mid-2004 the United States and partners disrupted a plot to bomb urban targets in Britain.

5. 2003 Karachi plot:

In spring 2003 the United States and a partner disrupted a plot to attack westerners at several targets in Karachi, Pakistan.

6. Heathrow Airport plot:

In 2003 the United States and several partners disrupted a plot to attack London's Heathrow Airport using hijacked commercial airliners. The planning for this alleged attack was undertaken by a major operational figure in the September 11, 2001, attacks.

7. 2004 Britain plot:

In the spring of 2004 the United States and partners, using a combination of law enforcement and intelligence resources, disrupted a plot to conduct large-scale bombings in Britain.

8. 2002 Arabian Gulf shipping plot:

In late 2002 and 2003 the United States and a partner nation disrupted a plot by al Qaeda operatives to attack ships in the Arabian Gulf.

9. 2002 Strait of Hormuz plot:

In 2002 the United States and partners disrupted a plot to attack ships in the Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the Persian Gulf from the Indian Ocean.

10. 2003 tourist site plot:

In 2003 the United States and a partner nation disrupted a plot to attack a tourist site outside the United States. The White House did not list what site that was.

Part of me, and I don't know why thinks something maybe be afoot here!!!! Now given as the majority of us have no proof or way of determining any of the above "planned" incidents are true, how should we take this, I am taking it as propaganda in the highest order, but not only that, do they really think people are that dense? Last week Billy Smith planned to rob old lady Jones in the post office, he never did it though, we intercepted his plan ( no arrests were necessary as no offence took place, but he was planning to though!) What a bunch of arrse! We look like we are doing something to justify why so many of our people have being put on the front line as political and personal pawns so we don't lose face more like.
"The good and great United States of America has foiled plots on uk soil!"

"Britain now owes us another one", says Pres Bush. "Those limey don't know what side their bread is buttered!!"

A secret communi-k intercepted a few minutes ago.
Well they can't really win can they. Terrorist actually fly planes into real buildings its all filmed and still some people say its a conspiracy or didn't even happen (the pentagon aircraft).

I very much doubt Afganistan would have been invaded if the 9/11 hijackers had been caught prior to the attack. By these arguments we are probably better off doing nothing and wait for the bombs to explode.

The fact that the July 7th and 21st bombs happened is enough evidence to me that there were indeed other attacks planned. - Dead police officer in a raid, anyone remember the Ricin plot?

Of course you would use these gains for politcal ammunition when/if you think the time is right (and you have been informed). It just seems the whole 'Iraq case for war' intell blunders have made it easy to criticise all aspects of TWAT now.

It could be true. I, myself, stopped Bin Laden from destroying Canada last week.
No you didn't, it was me.
What you were trying to destroy Canada, or you stopped Bin Laden??

I like the bit about East Asian men being recruited to do the dirty work on airplanes, the Terrorists(tm) are outsourcing and George gets another demographic to apply extra scrutiny too. Wonder if there's an agency suplying the terrorists with 'consultants' to do the work for them.
I think what has been said is all true, I am a media sponge I watch the news all day and believe every single world, they are our leaders and we must trust them, they are above any corruption and lies and are without any doubt the holiest men to walk on this earth. I Hereby solemnly swear that from now on I will listen and unconditionally believe anything our sworn and trusted elected leaders tell us. God Bless Them All !!! (Rest in peace you lying double-crossing fcucks :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: )
anything bush says is true!

he hears voices in his head from GOD remember!

Well there you are then he is the new prophet and all cartoons of him must cease. Those that mock him will pay, and when he has he giant space station complete with tugsten rods he will zapp the evil doers.

I thought I read somewhere that he likes the idea that Israel is supposed to occupy most of the middle east as well, in prepartaion of the second coming? I'll see if I can find a link.
