    Thanks to his actions and moral clarity, we have school children that are safer...

    If moron libs had their way, Saddam's control of Iraq would still be in power, and our kids would've been in more danger if not dead..

    WASHINGTON - Federal law enforcement authorities notified six school districts in five states last month that a CD found by the U.S. military in Iraq contained crisis-planning information about their schools, two U.S. officials said Thursday.

    The downloaded information found in Iraq in July - all publicly available on the Internet - included an Education Department report guiding schools on how to prepare and respond to a crisis, said one official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    In particular, schools were told to watch for activities that may be legitimate on their own - but may suggest a threat if many of them occur.

    Among those activities:

    - Interest in obtaining site plans for schools, bus routes and attendance lists.

    - Prolonged "static surveillance" by people disguised as panhandlers, shoe shiners, newspaper or flower vendors or street sweepers not previously seen in the area.

    - Observations of security drills.

    - People staring at or quickly looking away from employees or vehicles as they enter or leave parking areas.

    - Foot surveillance of campuses involving individuals working together.

    The effort is the latest by the Education Department and other federal agencies to encourage school officials to maintain and practice a plan for responding to emergencies.

    "It's a positive sign that they're finally discussing this after years of downplaying or denying even the possibility of a terrorist strike on schools," said Kenneth Trump, a Cleveland-based school safety consultant who has worked with officials in more than 40 states. "Public officials are in fear of creating fear, but we have to put the cards on the table, educate people in the school community and make sure they are well prepared."

    After the terrorist takeover of the Russian school, President Bush asked his top advisers to review their strategies for dealing with hostage situations, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge has said.

    while i'm sure it would be nice to tie this particular incident to terrorism support by hussein, I think it would be safer to assume that had these plans not turned up in Iraq, now that husseins out of power, they would have been somewhere else. Probably afghanistan or pakistan. Iran maybe?

    ...or not turned up at all. I believe the point he's making shows while Saddam likely did NOT have sleep-overs and keggers with "The List", his administration allowed for ties to terrorism-as-a-means-for-political-difference-solving.


    And stuff.

    More on the disks:

    "The material included exit strategies, school codes of conduct, and information on creating a learning environment, officials said.

    and..

    The Homeland Security official said the material was associated with a specific individual in Iraq, and it could not be established that this man had any ties to terrorism. He did have a connection to civic groups doing planning for schools in Iraq, the official said."

    So the guy with the disks isn't a terrosist, but has connections to civic groups doing planning for Iraqi schools.

    "Our children would be dead" if "moron liberals had their way" doesn't really follow from this information.

    Yeh an unidentified Iraqi Baath party man was doing innocent research on American schools for his home study course on US education resources.

    What do you think would happen if our government announced proudly that an Iraqi man associated with the Sadaam Baath party was scoping out American schools for another Chechnian group of suicide terrorist bombers?

    You don't think that there would be a real panic in the good ole USA????

    Your probably right, our government wouldn't lie to their constituents, the America people in order to keep from alerting us to a real threat to our children and our economy and our way of life. But there is nothing to worry about here.
