Italian authorities have uncovered and foiled future terrorist attacks against the US. The politics of internal spying aside, I would like to say thank you to the Italians for possibly saving thousands of American lives. Why has the US media not picked up on this when it's front page news outside the US?

Anytime you generalize you are likely to be wrong.

YOUR WELCOME ANAV!



I can't give you a real response cause your link is broken but I'm sure that it has something to do with the fact newsmax covers it.

I also would klike to thank the Italians for their diligent efforts to foil plans like this one.

Notice the liberal media never covers anything good that happens. They just bash the president and try to undermine the war. The press has a lot of influence and Bush knows 70% of the press is out to get him.

So why don't you guys go up on stage and do it because none of them are listening to you

I believe that newsmax story was loosely referring to these stories.

Italy arrests Algerians suspected of terror links
Police believe three men were planning attack outside Italy


Spain detains 20 suspected militant recruitersArrests support theory that Iraqi insurgents are enlisting European fighters


I dont care for newsmax either. Their stories consist of sprinkled facts on their massive opinions too much as do many news sources. I would rather get meaty facts sprinked with insightful opinions instead. They could just as well keep their opinions to themselves but that would get boring.

Here is another article on the Algerian terrorists arrested in Italy...

GeoWorldsays,

"The Algerians, suspected of belonging to a cell established by an Al-Qaeda-linked Algerian extremist organisation, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), were named as Achour Rabah, Tartaq Sami and Yasmine Bouhrama."
