• Joe Lieberman Warns: Beware of Friends and Family Who Are Probably Terrorists

    Remember people — in the wake of the U.S. military's successful surprise raid of Osama bin Laden's suburban home in Pakistan — this is no time relax and enjoy a well-earned moment of national success.

    We must remain ever-vigilant in our quest for ever-vigilance. We must not relent one tiny bit in our fear of all things and all people. We must remain strong in our belief that we are weak and helpless

    Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who chairs the Senate's Homeland Security Committee, warned Americans on Monday to be vigilant against homegrown radicals who may improvise attacks in response to Osama Bin Laden's death…

    While the threat level has not been raised as there is no specific evidence of any credible threats, Lieberman said that he was concerned Bin Laden's demise could inspire an attack along the lines of the Ft. Hood massacre, in which a radicalized individual soldier killed 13 people. He urged Americans to be especially vigilant in reporting any leads to authorities in the coming days.

    "This is a classic 'If you see something, say something' moment," he said. "If you see suspicious behavior, call the police immediately — and that includes if you see suspicious behavior by someone who is a friend or family member."

    You know, the last time I saw my brother, he looked a little bit shifty around the eyes.

    And my fiance, she's been holding a grudge against me ever since I forgot to take out the trash that one time and the whole kitchen ended up smelling like fish. You don't suppose that'd be enough to push her over the edge and into a secret al Qaeda Midwestern cell do you?
