The Opinion Mill has a good discussion of the late great terror threat:
Oh, come on. Six guys were planning to take on Fort Dix? Using information gleaned from pizza deliveries? Practicing for their strike with paintball guns? I realize that these poll results are looking pretty bad for Bush and the GOP, but does the pimping have to be this blatant? Don’t they realize the scary-headlines con is way past its sell-by date? Haven’t they learned anything from the speed with which the arrest of those hapless zanies in Miami last year dissolved into farce? Can’t they at least review a few episodes of 24 to get the targets straight?
You want to know about terrorists? Check out these guys. Then come back and tell me about how we have to fight the terra-ists in Iraq so we don’t have to fight them on our shores. Guess what — the terrorists are already here. Only they want to kill dark-skinned people, so somehow it just doesn’t seem to be that big a deal.
