    Hey Plasma,
    Here is the latest on the students;
    Fox news
    MINNEAPOLIS Three Egyptian students sought along with eight others who failed to show up for an exchange program in Montana were taken into custody on Wednesday, authorities said.
    Eslam Ibrahim Mohamed El-Dessouki, 21, was taken into custody in Minnesota on what was termed an administrative immigration violation as an out-of-status student, according to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

    OH! I hadn't even thought about the 11 Egyptians until you mentioned them PlasmaFiend! I was just reading up on those missing "students" today and I feel they are a great threat to the country. To my way of thinking, any time someone comes into the country and deliberately disappears they are a threat, but a group of 11 is a huge threat IMO.

    And as superstitious as I am, the number 11 jumped out at me first thing.

    Hello dark shadows. When I came here to check for this report, I somehow knew you were on the job and already had it posted. Thank you for being ever vigilant on these matters.

    This is very distressing. FOX said that the FBI is preparing a statement for the USA and will let us know what the have to say. I feel sure that Homeland Security will put us on a heightened Alert Level also, at least I hope so.

    Hi Plasma,
    Thanks for the post.


    Hello Magpie,
    Thank-you for the very nice post.I am waiting to hear the press release from the FBI.You were right in saying that the US would raise the threat level.Apparently they just raised it.

    According to the Sky News report "those arrested were mainly young, British born Asian men".

    Has the US terror alert gone up??

    There is going to be an FBI news conference anytime now, and Fox will carry that live. It's 7:40 in the morning now in England and it was in the middle of the night when the 20 individuals were arrested. Scotland Yard will be giving more details as well to reassure the public this was a real and pressing danger here.

    Wow, it is hard to understand those Brits. LOL Other suspects are or may be at large that the police are hunting.

    Well, it's breaking news. Eleven Egyptians disappear in the USA the minute they hit the soil of the USA almost one month before the anniversary of Sept 11th. Now this imminent threat. That means right now or quite soon, doesn't it. Not 3 1/2 weeks away I wouldn't think. I don't see a connection with these missing Egyptians, but who knows? We are being told nothing about their backgrounds or even what they look like. Why is that?

    Sorry for rambling guys. But the thought of airplanes full of people blowing up over the ocean, I assume, is totally bizzare and outlandish!

    The United States has raised the terrorist threat level to the highest because British Intelligence has raised theirs to the highest.

    Scandi Oh, Thanks Dark Shadows for starting this thread. Big hugs to you, or Krams

    Scandi,

    It is extrememly frightening - all of it - the airplanes the missing Egyptians, the fact that we have been kept in the dark about these people when we could have had millions of eyes looking for them had we been given pictures when it happened. The government probably didn't want to frighten us with terrorist pictures in the news, didn't want to create a panic I suppose. Well, they have panic on their hands today.

    I didn't want to post a link because of language on this particular Blog I was just reading, but it was stated on there that the planes were meant to blow up over major cities, not the ocean! I found this blog by following links from an article just written by Dan Rhiel. I'm not even sure if we are supposed to post a link to RhielWorldView as it can get a little racy, but Dan is awake and on top of it as is Michelle Malkin.

    dark shadows -- you are right! Just heard on FOX that the US threat level has been raised to HIGH, the 2nd highest threat level.
