AP: Jihadists Living in Oregon

Northwest liberals have been in a state of denial since 9-11. Between discounting future threats and blaming the attacks on US foreign policy, they've had to get more and more creative in their efforts to convince others there is no future terrorist threat.

Or if there is, the Bush Administration isn't doing enough about it, or they're doing too much, boy, I just can't keep up with their everchanging spin on the issue these days.

Here's fresh evidence that Eugene, Portland, Seattle and Olympia lefties can cook up new excuses for, or ignore, the choice is theirs:


The FBI knows of "jihadists" who have trained in terrorist camps in Afghanistan and are now living in Oregon, the agency's Oregon chief said in an interview with The Associated Press yesterday.

"We don't have an imminent threat that we're aware of. But I will say this: We have people here in Oregon that have trained in jihadist camps in bad areas. In the bad neighborhoods of the world," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Jordan.

During the session with The AP, which lasted nearly two hours, Jordan discussed a wide range of themes — from his agents' participation in the Bush administration's war on terrorism to the upcoming opening of a Portland laboratory for forensic work on computers seized from suspects.

Jordan refused to say how many "jihadists" live in Oregon.

He said the FBI knows "they've trained overseas, taken oaths to kill Americans and engage in jihad," but the challenge is "to prove those things."
