Active terrorist ties what kind of an Atlanta but not eleven to same with -- thousand pound bomb meant to topple the Federal Reserve Bank of New York -- Corzine -- But Nancy Drew today's newspapers you wonder if the whole thing even happened.
Because forget front page news this thing was barely any -- strike takes 26.
In the New York Times it was page nine.
In the Washington Post at least slightly more promising dates three in USA today so essentially read it in -- to terror expert -- -- -- on our collective shrug.
My good man -- man I mean obviously had it happen to have been a very different reaction but are we that -- No I don't think so Neil I I think I have a little problem myself but this kind of FBI sting operation because it doesn't really let us know what's going on in the country.
But I think the most important thing here is it -- on does the Obama scenario if you will that al-Qaeda died with.
Because the gentlemen that they enticed into doing this was clearly entice because he thought he was dealing with al-Qaeda and the memory or at least the inspiration of Osama bin Laden and it's it really is.
Especially the post in the New York Times.

But what we'll see -- -- not cooperate or add an undercover agent would this particular guy.
Would you found another guy would he had succeeded or it was a good thing the FBI did what it did.
-- -- -- of course is a good thing they did what they did but it it just it clouds that -- -- the issue Neil I think the real issue for the United States.

And took to put one up for 2000 -- twelve.
And the expansion and the geographical region the numbers of people fighting.
For al-Qaeda and its allies his growing a great deal in the last decade in.
There's no one who's reporting it really they it the poster.
At the New York Times and of course we -- providing air support to her we did in Libya and it looks like we want to win Syria.
To people who -- really and Afghanistan would be called the Taliban.
The Obama era in terms of Islamic.
Islamist militancy has been and it.
