Islamic terrorists have been busy planning, if not executing, attacks
in the United States. Some of the information shows up on terrorist web sites.
For example, someone apparently did some scouting down in Texas and discovered
something interesting. The heavy equipment for the troops at Ft Hood moves by
rail to Houston and Beaumont, where they are loaded on ships for movement overseas.
The tracks cross numerous little gullies and creeks. For the most part the
viaducts across these obstacles are made of creosote-treated wood. And there's
absolutely no security. In one night a half dozen guys with some trucks and
matches could do enough damage to hold up the movement, of half a dozen
brigades (III Corps), for weeks.
terrorists also pass around the results of their Google searches, which
apparently produces an amazing amount of detail on how American infrastructure
(gas, oil, electric, water and transportation) operates. This is giving
counter-terror organizations fits, because, while they already knew about most
of this, now many of the bad guys do too. So far, the terrorists have been more
talk than action, but the potential for doing considerable damage, with little
effort, is there.
