More On The Terror Threat From Canada
- By Warner Todd Huston
I would like to say something about this Canada business and myself. Some are imagining that I have something real against Canada, but I do not. Sure, we have a healthy rivalry between our two countries , but I am not saying that Canada is doing nothing to help the US with the Global War On Terror (GWOT).
I have gotten quite a few emails from Canadians both in support of my views as well as against. But it is interesting that all those against seem to be working with the government somehow!
Canada is doing a lot with the GWOT. But they are not, however, doing all they could and this is my point. Their anti-US and anti-war feelings coupled with their overly liberal leanings and Europeanesque disdain for security is effecting their ability to crack down on this terrorism business.
And now, some more support for my contention that Canada is more of a security threat than Mexico...

Though many view Canada as an unassuming neutral nation that has skirted terrorist attacks, it has suffered its share of aggression, and intelligence officials believe at least 50 terror groups now have some presence here.
The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, counterpart of the CIA, said terrorist representatives are actively raising money, procuring weapons, "manipulating immigrant communities" and facilitating travel to and from the United States and other countries.
