Thank you, Mr. Zapat…
Thank you, Mr. Zapatero and all those Spaniards who voted for him:

Federal officials have information suggesting that al Qaeda has people in the United States preparing to mount a large-scale terrorist attack this summer, sources familiar with the information said yesterday.

That information dovetails with other intelligence “chatter” suggesting that al Qaeda operatives are pleased with the change in government resulting from the March 11 terrorist bombings in Spain and may want to affect elections in the United States and other countries.

“They saw that an attack of that nature can have economic and political consequences and have some impact on the electoral process,” said one federal official with access to counterterrorism intelligence.

As I said back in March, the more folks give in to terror, the more of a threat terrorists pose, and not just to those who capitulate, but to everyone. Emboldening terrorists, in essence rearming them, is a lose-lose situation for civilized people. In that March post, I noted an op-ed piece at the Command Post by Michele Catalano, that speaks to today’s news.

Unfortunately, their votes spell certain doom for other countries, other innocent people. It’s not hyperbole, it’s not some form of right-wing histrionics to cry that the terrorists have won, because they certainly did.

This is the further results of appeasement.
