139 Sleeper Cells Found and Arrested in Saudi Arabia


If you listen to the media these days, the war on terror is portrayed as a tool of the Republican party to take away civil liberties and invade oil producing countries. But if you pay attention to the stories that are happening out there, you will find that a concerted effort is being made across the world to root out Al Qaeda terrorists.

The Saudi Arabian government has broken a huge terror cell, or more accurately 139 individual sleeper cells, on the eve of what they considered a major attack within their country.

Saudi security officials said Saturday they foiled a planned terrorist suicide attack and arrested 139 suspected Islamist militants who were in “sleeper cells” believed to be affiliated with al Qaeda.
A senior official in the Saudi Interior Ministry told CNN that the suspects, who are from several Arab nations, were monitored by Saudi security agents for several months. They rounded the men up just before the expected attack was launched.The suspects, arrested in different areas of Saudi Arabia, were being interrogated Saturday, the official said.
In October 2005, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia called the threat of al Qaeda in his country “madness and evil” and vowed to “eliminate this scourge” of terrorism. Fifteen of the 19 al Qaeda terrorists participating in the September 11, 2001, attacks were Saudis.via CNN.com

So folks, do not let those that want to downplay the war on terror win. It is an ongoing battle fought on many fronts. And this war will be fought for a very long time.

      Shouldn’t your headline say that 139 TERRORISTS in sleeper cells were arrested, rather than 139 sleeper cells?

      The Dems going down this road are so foolish, in their zeal to bash Bush in regard to the war(Dems voted for it too) they ARE putting the US in jeopardy. They don’t want to win the war & that equals disaster for this country, that means disaster for you’re children & grandchildren too Dems. Don’t you care about them? Then show it and quit being stupid and senile!

      Nice posts, indeed.

      I just hope that you do not forget who the president is who resolutely REFUSED to close down the borders on September 12, 2001 and potentially allowed God only knows how many terrorists into our country.

      Yeah, Dems this and Dems that, but stupid and senile(Dems) in this case was definitely no match for young and dumb(Republicanos).
