US steps up Pakistan raids to thwart al-Qaeda 'October surprise' plot
US secret forces are intensifying their cross-border raids into Pakistani tribal areas because of fears of a high-profile al-Qaeda attack during the American election campaign, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.
Any attack in the weeks before the Nov 4 election - what is known in American political circles as an "October surprise" - would almost certainly give a decisive boost to John McCain, the Republican candidate who already holds a commanding lead on questions of national security.
So either we know who al-Qaeda supports or our own regime is "preparing" us for a homegrown "attack." Some of those sepcial ops could "accidently" trigger a minor explosion and then point the finger towards others. The calls for a tough military leader will be heard (or my own bet of martial law declared).
Would our own regime do this? You bet they would.
