US intelligence officials increasingly fear that the next terror attack on the United States will be carried out by white Americans or Europeans.

As Barack Obama and John McCain head to New York’s Ground Zero seven years after 19 Middle-Eastern hijackers brought devastation to the US mainland, counter-terrorism experts believe that any future attack will be made by terrorists with an “American face”.

They point to reports of white faces in terrorism training camps in Pakistan - the so-called “white men of Waziristan”, a reference to the remote tribal area where both al-Qaeda and the Taliban have bases.

Experts believe that dozens of westerners have undergone such training as their leaders try to recruit non-Middle Eastern Asians, particularly ethnic Caucasians, who are less likely to attract the attention of security and law enforcement agencies.

Al-Qaeda’s recent decision to put out videos in English and a similar change on extremist “jihadi” websites have also been cited of evidence of a new strategy to find recruits who are less likely to attract the attention of security and law enforcement agencies.

Such concerns were sharpened last week after the arrest of three Germans over an alleged plot to destroy a club used by US servicemen.

Two of the three were white, ethnic Germans and all had allegedly been trained in camps in Waziristan.

“There is no bigger worry for the US counter-terrorism community than young Caucasian men who have turned to al-Qaeda,” Roger Cressey, a former National Security Council official in the Clinton and Bush administrations, told the US news network MSNBC.

Terrorism experts say such a threat has been known about even before the arrest of Richard Reid, the British shoe bomber. However, it was not until three weeks ago that a US official explicitly admitted that the government knew of such people being trained in significant numbers.

So it begins, the sales pitch of fear to substantiate the increase funding for Homeland Security.

U.S intelligence agencies??? the same who brought you Weapons of mass destruction and the ever dilligent inability to find them or Bin Laden.
This is nothing new, every conflict we have ever been in, the United states as well as overseas there has been sympathizers for the other side.

How funny is it, our homeland security has only been using "profiling" to detect threats to America and Americans.

Now they want to include all races and ethnic backgrounds, this report (advertisement for funding) is laughable, from day one they have kmnown of all ethnic and races to be susceptible to the recruitment process of these terrorist groups.

Basically nothing new to read in this report, unless of course you been living in a cave somewhere.

We all know there are already home grown terrorist cells so really this is not a news-breaking story....more and more they are trying to recruit sympathizers of their cause right on an intended targets own soil and they are forming sleeper cells all over...not just in the U.S.wine

this is how the new wars will be fought with implants, recruiting from within other countries, offering college education, funding for a business and and they sit there until needed just as they are doing so do we and probably do most of the other nations of power as well.

Yep...it's already being done...look at London...the car bombs they found and the bombing or attempted bombing of the Glascow airport...how many of those were doctors....so they know the weaknesses of different countries right down to lacking medical doctors.....wine

Nationalism only feeds the fascism. Patriotism is a virtue of the vicious. Those predisposed to conflict will find some reason to go to war with their neighbor. If not, a reason will be found for them.

What's national security anymore but what's best for the top 1%?doh mumbling

I think homeland security is riddled with those with bogus/false credentials.

One thing is certain they sure got it up and running quickly. and we all know when we rush into something what usually happens.

Who's they? Bin Laden is a CIA operative. And what about the FBI agents suing Bush for not letting them pursue Al Queda before the 9/11? Who's really the enemy here, foreign nationals, or our own leadership?

Again, who's they?roll eyes very mad frustrated

Who's they? Who's "us"? We're all in this together. If you don't have $20 billion, you're meat to be manipulated.
