Roberts: NSA turns up evidence of terror cells in America


Sam Brownback[(AP) Republican senator seeks to derail Oregon assisted suicide law:][1] Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., has introduced legislation that would bar doctors from prescribing federally controlled drugs for use in assisted suicide. ... Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., immediately opposed the bill, saying through a spokeswoman that he would do everything in his power to block the legislation, including a filibuster. Wyden had vowed after the Supreme Court ruling that he would object to any measure that might affect end-of-life care generally and Oregon's law in particular.Pat Roberts [(Investor's Business Daily)Homeland Security:][2] Chillingly, some of the Pakistani Britons just arrested in the al-Qaida plot to blow up U.S. airliners had placed calls to several U.S. cities, including Washington and New York. Pat Roberts, head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, suggested recently that the NSA spy program has turned up evidence of sleeper cells in America. He says the NSA is monitoring calls from an al-Qaida terrorist camp, presumably in Pakistan, to the U.S. "They're not calling the United States simply to be calling the United States," Roberts said. "I'll just leave it at that."Dennis Moore[(KC Star) Summit addresses energy initiatives:][3] No one at Tuesday's energy summit in Overland Park had the definitive answer to the nation's energy problems. But that doesn't mean nothing is being done, they said. Panelists at the forum described efforts in Kansas and the Kansas City area to encourage alternative energy sources and increase energy efficiency. "It's time to start investing in the Middle West instead of the Middle East," U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore told the approximately 100 people attending the event at the University of Kansas Edwards Campus.How to contact As always, you can find information to contact members of the Kansas congressional delegation [here.][4] [1]: http://www.gazettetimes.com/articles/2006/08/16/news/oregon/wedore10.txt [2]: http://www.investors.com/editorial/editorialcontent.asp?secid=1501&status=article&id=240534757354967 [3]: http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/news/local/15281886.htm [4]: http://ljworld.com/extra/where_to_write.html#fed

terrorist cells in America? Is the NSA referring to the ELF?

Yeah the way they have been infiltrating peace groups, I wouldn't be convinced that they would recognize a terrorist cell if it dropped a bottle of explosive gatorade on them.
