I think I’ll get that To-Go, please

Terror threat to restaurants as Al Qaeda calls for attacks on government workers in D.C.

The terror group tied to the Ft. Hood killings and the Christmas Day undies airbomber urge wannabe American jihadis to open fire on crowded restaurants in the nation’s capital to massacre U.S. government workers.


“A random hit at a crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C., at lunch hour might end up knocking out a few government employees,” Yahya Ibrahim writes in the 74-page jihadi how-to magazine.

Jihad how-to.  Hmm.  Never heard of a Catholic how-to kill your neighbors publication.

I’m sure, though, that this religion is simply misunderstood.  A few bad apples, that’s all.  It’s really a peaceful religion.  Flowers, hearts, doves…not scimitars and women covered head to toe with burlap. 

So glad we don’t live in DC right now.  So concerned over friends and former coworkers we have in the area.

Oh, and it just hit me…I’ll be in DC in 2 weeks to run a race.  The ARMY Ten Miler.   Yeah.  Such a warm fuzzy feeling I’ve got right now.

Just lovely.

  1. Somebody was telling me that there was an attempted car-bombing at an apartment building in CA. There wasn't enough boom to take down the building, though. I'm starting to feel a little leery of public places myself.

  2. Splendid! We're supposed to be taking our kids there the first week in November. Now I'm wishing we hadn't cancelled our trip to Disney World.
    I'm not buying their “peaceful” religion bit. If they're peaceful they really should rethink they way they go about showing it. Their current model is a total fail.

  3. Can't contribute any more to this discussion than has already been said–but I can contribute prayers for your safety, Michelle, and for all others who live/work/visit the DC area. It has to be an extra-scary place for people to be right now.

  4. Great! There are soooo many headcovers around here too! Sometimes I think I've left the US and am actually in the middle east, there are so many women already wearing head and full cover in this area.
    But government workers should be smart and take off their badge necklaces when they go out to eat! I see them flaunting about in them all the time…so what if you've tucked the actual badge into your shirt pocket, we can all still tell who you work for, sheesh!
