Terrorists Release ‘Hit List’

0 Shares

President Obama is being urged by some members of the GOP to re-sign the PATRIOT Act.A website linked to terrorist group al-Qaida recently released a “hit list” of top United States officials and executives.

Fox News reports that some security officials believe that the list, which calls for the sending of explosive mail, may mark a change in strategy for the terrorist group, as it attempts to recover from the killing of its leader, Osama bin Laden.

“While we have no information of any imminent terrorist threat to the United States or any U.S. persons, as always, we urge Federal, State and local law enforcement, as well as the general public, to maintain increased vigilance for indications of pre-operational or suspicious activity,” Department of Homeland Security spokesman Chris Ortman told the news source.

The release of the list comes as a group of Republican lawmakers sent a letter to President Barack Obama questioning the Constitutionality of his assigning a surrogate to sign legislation and urging him to re-sign the PATRIOT Act.

“Mr. President, it is clear that assigning a surrogate the responsibility of signing bills passed by Congress is a debatable issue, and could be challenged in court,” the letter read, reports The Hill. “That being the case, our request is that, out of an abundance of caution, you affix your signature to S. 990 by personally re-signing the enrolled bill.”
