Attacks Against America Are Not Over
Col. Stanislav Lunev
Friday, September 14, 2001
Col. Stanislav Lunev is the highest-ranking military spy ever to defect from Russia. He continues as a security consultant to the U.S. government. He filed this report from an undisclosed location in Europe.
I was surprised to hear, Thursday, some politicians in Washington making statements that terrorist operations against America are over.
How can they make such claims?
International terrorists are still targeting the U.S. and the American people as never before. Osama bin Laden, Hamas and other well-known and currently unknown terrorist organizations consider America as their number one target.
After such an elaborate and coordinated attack was just conducted against the U.S., isn't it reasonable to think that the terrorist groups, backed by powerful nations, might a) already have plans for an escalation of such attacks, or b) now, seeing the vulnerability of the U.S., become encouraged and launch additional attacks?
Since I defected to the U.S. from Russia, I have been always somewhat perplexed by the politically correct thinking in Washington and among the U.S. media.
The media are now openly criticizing the President for remaining in Air Force One and not returning immediately to New York or Washington.
The President acted very correctly and very smartly. As I recall, America has a Constitution. The President's sole real responsibility is to preserve your Constitutional government - not to hold press conferences.
Obviously, the President and his advisors understood that there was a real possibility of a larger threat - perhaps nuclear - and one the media doesn't want you to know about.
Let me explain. When I defected in the 1990s from Russia's GRU - its military intelligence - I told the FBI, the CIA, the DIA, anyone that would listen - that the Russians already had elaborate war plans against the U.S.
I suggested that such a war might begin with a diversion, some sort of terrorist attack. With people's attention focused elsewhere, special troops could storm Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, the White House - to kill American leaders.
I also warned the American government that I believe Russia has already smuggled small nuclear devices into the U.S.
I have no doubt that Russia has been behind many of these terrorist groups, financing and equipping them.
The President acted prudently. He continues to do so, by understanding the new, larger attacks may occur.
He also knows just how weak American intelligence agencies are after the Clinton-Gore administration.
Also, these terrorists are funded and sponsored by countries Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria and by other rogue nations (all closely aligned with either Russia or China). These terrorist groups and nations want nothing less than war against Western civilization.
First of all they would like to destroy the U.S., the recognized leader of the civilized world.
On Sept. 11, terrorists used the so-called "cheapest" way for the destruction of symbols of American financial and military power. By doing it this way, the terrorists show just how vulnerable we are. It also allows them to have a place from which they can escalate the terror.
This suicidal attack could have been prevented, but that did not happen.
However, Tuesday's tragedy very clearly demonstrated the depths of terrorist penetration through the American nation - where they are operating, as if they were in their own backyard - and, for example, using American training facilities for the preparation of the attacks against American people.
I am continually amazed how easy the American government makes it for enemies to penetrate American society and institutions. I am also amazed how many American journalists dislike America, and openly work against this country.
From now on, we know for sure that there are hundreds if not thousands of terrorists who are living among us in America.
They are preparing to continue the war against countries, which provide them hospitality, including dozens of so-called "sleepers" or specially trained terrorists who pretend to be U.S. citizens and residents. 24 hours a day, every day, they are waiting for the wake-up call from their organization leaders for a new attack against American people.
The next attack may be more severe.
According to Western intelligence estimations, the most powerful international terrorists organizations already have access to weapons of mass destruction, including chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and materials.
There is no doubt that the leaders of terrorist organizations already have their own combat groups in America. Next time they could use, against the American people, weapons of mass destruction or so-called "expensive" weapons, which could be delivered to the U.S. very soon, if they aren't already deployed inside America.
It's very difficult to understand the logic of terrorists and impossible to predict their next targets.
The war against America declared by international terrorism is REAL, PRESENT and DANGEROUS.
We will win this war if, instead of words about defending America, we will do everything possible, practically, for the protection of our country and lives of the American people. There is no time for talking and promises any more. It's time for ACTION.
