FBI DIRECTOR: "VERY CONCERNED" ABOUT U.S. AL-QAEDA SLEEPER CELLS

Goss fears WMD attack in U.S. 'a matter of time'

QUOTES FROM YESTERDAY'S 'PUBLIC' INTEL BRIEFING ON THE HILL:
"It may be only a matter of time before al Qaeda or another group attempts to use chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons," Mr. Goss told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III testified that he is "very concerned" about the lack of data on a network of al Qaeda "sleeper" cells in the United States.

THIS QUOTE IS QUITE STRIKING IN THAT IT SHOWS DIRECTIVE AND INTENT OF AL-QAEDA IN 2005!
"Because of al Qaeda's directed efforts this year to infiltrate covert operatives into the U.S., I am also very concerned with the growing body of sensitive reporting that continues to show al Qaeda's clear intention to obtain and ultimately use some form of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear or high-energy explosives material in its attacks against America," Mr. Mueller added.

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY THE BORDER ISN'T CLOSED! EVEN THE NEW YORK TIMES REPORTED THAT AL-QAEDA "MAY BE" USING THE WIDE-OPEN MEXICAN BORDER TO SMUGGLE OPERATIVES INTO THE COUNTRY
