On terrorists who come and stay

Okay, so Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog has caught something I missed:
The nation's top law enforcement officials warned today that al Qaeda may have plotters already inside the United States.

"We have to assume that there are persons out there that want to attack us," said FBI director Robert Mueller.

Not to get repetitious or anything, but I feel the need to repeat: Isn't this why the government is taking our civil liberties away? So that they'll have a heads-up when this kind of thing is going on? If the NSA's warrantless surveillance program is really so incredibly effective, shouldn't they know if al-Qaeda has plotters in the US? And if they don't, who the hell are they listening to, already?
