    The global war on terror is a continuous thing, that is what is going on. There are people out there constantly trying to harm westerners, and people out there doing everything they can to stop them.

    I just turned on the TV and am watching (recorded) coverage of the escorted plane.

    Kudos to Canada for picking up the plane in their airspace.

    Exclamation Update -- explosives found

    http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/2...nes-ar-615584/

Obama said both had been addressed to Jewish organizations in the Chicago area.
