Guess who may be coming to dinner? HEZBOLLAH!! According to the 2008 Interagency Intelligence Committee on Terrorism, a federal report Obtained by Middle East Newsline. Hezbollah is forming cells in the United States right now, and the cells will be operational within five years.
What the federal report does not tell you is that as Obama’s personnel continues their attempt to disrupt our security apparatus It will become harder and hared to decipher out domestic threats.
On top of that, the ever present PC Police that encourages the President to invite a Jihad supporting head of an Islamic Organization to speak at his inaugural will retard any of the security apparatus that is left:
Hezbollah Expected To Be A Major Threat By 2014
By David Bedein, Middle East Correspondent
Thursday, January 22, 2009 Jerusalem — Hezbollah could be one of the first security challenges faced by the new Obama administration. An official government report concludes the Iranian-backed Islamic terror group has been forming sleeper cells throughout the United States that could become operational.
The report estimates Hezbollah could become a much more potent national security threat by 2014. The group was responsible for the 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks bombing, which killed 241 U.S. Marines and 58 French servicemen.
“The Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah does not have a known history of fomenting attacks inside the U.S., but that could change if there is some kind of ‘triggering’ event, the homeland assessment cautions,” the report said.
The report, obtained by the Middle East Newsline and marked “for official use only,” did not define a “triggering event.” Most of the threats cited in the report had been raised by the Homeland Security Department.
The 38-page report, titled 2008 Interagency Intelligence Committee on Terrorism, said Hezbollah was being directed by the leadership in Lebanon as well as Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
The assessment said the Hezbollah network in the United States was engaged in money laundering, drug trafficking, weapons smuggling and extortion.
The terror group has also established fundraising connections with mainstream American Muslim organizations, among the most notable being the case of Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former head of the American Muslim Council. Mr. Alamoudi, prior to his having pleaded guilty in 2004 for having tried to launder Libyan money for various terror groups, actively worked to raise money for Hezbollah among others. He also formerly helped oversee the appointment of Islamic chaplains in the U.S. military.
Hezbollah is one of several terrorist threats to the United States over the next five years, the report said. The report also cited al-Qaida as a leading threat, saying the Islamic network was focusing on striking strategic U.S. facilities.
“The threat of terrorism and the threat of extremist ideologies has not abated,” former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said prior to leaving office yesterday. “This threat has not evaporated, and we can’t turn the page on it.”
