"The NSA's terrorist surveillance program is targeted at al Qaeda communications coming into or going out of the United States.

-In an article by law Reporter Fergus Shiel:
"Australian law protects people who trained with terrorist organizations before July 2002...And at that, fewer than one in ten of Australians who have trained or been involved with al-Qaeda, Jemaah Islamiah and like-minded terrorist groups will ever face a court," nation's top spy-catcher says."The great majority of people in Australia, who are assessed to have trained with al-Qaeda and associated groups, remain free in the community because, among other reasons, the relevant laws did not come into force until July 2002," ASIO chief said. (Who later declined to reveal how many Australians were suspected of being involved with al-Qaeda and other terror groups.)
-But no need for alarm... (With sarcasm)
travel have been cancelled...belonging to those who
