Did everyone read the May 12 story about the terrorist they discovered down in Texas? It makes my blood run cold to think that while we are fighting the War on Terror half way around the world, the enemy has been hard at work here in the Homeland.
The best I can interpret the story; this apparent member of the Texan branch of Al-Queda had been operating for quite some time as a deep sleeper agent. We tend to think of terrorists as swarthy guys in woodland camo BDU jackets, white turbans, and long beards. We think of them with a crazed look in their eyes brandishing an AK-47 in one hand and a copy of the Qur’an in the other. Not so, this fiendishly clever operator. He goes by the innocuous American sounding name of “Jeff” and attends a large Bible college in east Texas. He is also serving as the interim pastor of a small Christian church in Mount Vernon, Texas. A brilliant cover, I must admit.
