Obama: 'Lone Wolf' Terror Attack More Likely Than Major Coordinated Effort
WASHINGTON (Associated Press)-- President Barack Obama said Tuesday that a "lone wolf" terror attack in the U.S. is more likely than a major coordinated effort like the Sept. 11 attacks nearly a decade ago.
With the nation preparing to observe the 10th anniversary of hijacked airliners crashing in New York and Washington and along the Pennsylvania countryside, Obama said the government is in a state of heightened awareness.
"The biggest concern we have right now is not the launching of a major terrorist operation, although that risk is always there," the president said in an interview with CNN.
"The risk that we're especially concerned over right now is the lone wolf terrorist, somebody with a single weapon being able to carry out wide-scale massacres of the sort that we saw in Norway recently," he said. "You know, when you've got one person who is deranged or driven by a hateful ideology, they can do a lot of damage, and it's a lot harder to trace those lone wolf operators."
In Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, 32, was charged with killing 69 people last month at a youth camp. A lawyer for Breivik says his client believes the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe from Muslims and punish politicians who have embraced multiculturalism.
In recent years the U.S. has endured terror-linked attacks that authorities believe were carried out by a single person. In November 2009, 13 people were killed at Fort Hood, Texas, in a shooting that led to charges against an Army psychiatrist who authorities allege had become an Islamic extremist.
A botched car bomb in New York's Times Square in 2010 and a Christmas Day 2009 attempt to bring down a Detroit-bound jetliner with a bomb also were tied by authorities to one person in each instance.
In the CNN interview, Obama said the government continues to monitor and gather information about potential terrorist plots even though al-Qaida's capabilities have been degraded. Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs during a raid in Pakistan last May.
Asked if Americans don't have to worry about a nuclear or radiological attack or some other "spectacular" event, Obama said: "Look, as president of the United States, I worry about all of it. But I think the most likely scenario that we have to guard against right now ends up being more of a lone wolf operation than a large, well-coordinated terrorist attack. We still have to stay on top of it, though, and we're never letting our guard down. That's part of our job."
He and others believe it might be the only way to save his re election chances, it's been talk around the MSM, so a false flag is due! The problem he has is WE KNOW who it came from when it happens!
Penn: Obama Needs A Domestic Terrorist Attack To "Reconnect"
Clinton strategist Mark Penn says former President Bill Clinton was able to reconnect with voters after the Oklahoma City bombing.

What Obama needs to reverse his fortunes is a terrorist attack?
From the mouth of Rob Shapiro, a former Clinton advisor...
"The bottom line here is that Americans don't believe in President Obama's leadership," says Rob Shapiro, another former Clinton official and a supporter of Mr Obama. "He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can't think of how he could do that."
So a terror attack can restore Obama's presidency like the Oklahoma City bombing restored Clinton's?
What is Shapiro really trying to say? http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/07/what_obama_needs_to_reverse_hi.html
Obama Tells Woodward: “We Can Absorb Another Terrorist Attack”
Washington is reveling this week in one of its oldest traditions – dissecting a Bob Woodward book that analyzes the sitting president. While much focus will be given to what one senior official said about another senior official, there is real news that deserves the bulk of the attention. Specifically, President Barack Obama’s shocking statement to Woodward that “we [America] can absorb another terrorist attack.”
He goes on to say: “We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever…we absorbed it and we are stronger.”
This statement demonstrates our Commander-in-Chief’s cavalier and frightening approach to national security, which apparently is based in the notion our country will ultimately “absorb” terrorist attacks, rather than prevent them.
Of course, America is a strong and vibrant nation that has proven it can recover from our darkest hours and valiantly defend our freedom. But there is no excuse to accept a situation where we put the lives of innocent Americans at risk. What city or state is the president willing to let “absorb” another attack? Los Angeles? New York? Washington?
President Obama contention that we have already “absorbed” the attacks of 9/11, and they only made us stronger is also short-sighted. This conclusion is highly insensitive to the countless victims still mourning and the ongoing war still being waged; and sends a signal to terrorists that we may be willing to live with a state of constant threats.
This notion also naively ignores that the next attack on our nation could be far more destructive than 9/11 and further illustrates Obama has a very shallow and dangerous understanding of the 9/11 attacks, their motive, their impact and the likelihood another devastating attack is on the horizon.
Early on in his term, President Obama ordered his administration to stop using the term “Global War on Terrorism.” This was alarming. However, this week’s insight should serve as a powerful confirmation that the president does not view national security as his top priority.
Certain actions of the White House and the Department of Homeland Security over the past two years have led many to question this administration’s commitment to preventing another Islamist terrorist attack on our soil.
This perception that we can “absorb” another attack must also factor into his decision-making in Afghanistan where he has ignored military advice to increase troop levels and created an artificial date for withdrawal that has emboldened our enemy. He did so because in his own words: “I don’t want to lose the entire Democratic Party.”
President Obama has chosen to dismiss his role as a war-time president instead to focus on a broad-based liberal domestic agenda. Stimulus spending and massive government growth should not get in the way of our government’s ultimate priority of keeping us safe.
Who does Homeland Security thinks poses the greatest risk? Video portrays white middle-class as the most likely terrorists
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 12:00 AM on 22nd July 2011
A video released by the Department of Homeland Security urging people to report anything suspicious has caused outrage by characterising white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists.
The promotional video is part of Homeland Security's $10million 'See Something, Say Something' programme as they believe it will help curb random acts of terrorism by individuals.
But the controversial video has angered some Americans due to the fact all the actors who play the would-be terrorists in the video are white, and the people who report them are either black, Asian or Arab.
What would happen - it is asked - if it was the other way about?
The ten-minute clip shows a number of scenarios in which different behaviours which could be characterised as terrorism are played out.
These include - wearing a hooded top, driving vans, opposing surveillance footage, using a video camera, talking to police officers and recording something on your smartphone, among others.
The voice over urges viewers not to consider a person's race when making a decision on whether or not they are a terrorist.

Our Government Wouldn't Plan A Terrorist Attack... Think Again!
The reason there was NO investigation.. No media covereage & the entire even was covered up to this day.. is Israeli's OWN the U.S.
These American hero's who survived this brutal MOSSAD attack were threatened with PRISON time if they told anyone. If this would have got out, the fact Israel & the U.S. are under the SAME international bankers control & war is merely a money making scheme would have been known to the world. The same elite bankers who finaced Hitler, finance America & Israel too!
