    The rest of the article is at this Arab site: Al-Hayat (English version)

    Next they'll take credit for any garbage strike and blood shortage.

    Hey, it's a low cost way to 'terrorize'! Just claim everything!

    Even if they were responsible, the govt would never tell us the truth. The only reason 09/11 was attributed to terrorism was because we saw it all happen in real time.

    Flight TWA 800 is still covered up. Not to mention the truth aka Iraqi connection behind Okla. City. As well as other incidents. :rolleyes:

    PS: Yeh, waiting for InHim's usual caustic comments about conspiracies any moment now. [​IMG]

    Don't forget about how John Wilkes Booth was actually an Iraqi sleeper agent with orders to silence Lincoln. Then there was the Lindburgh baby kidnapping, the disappearance of Amelia Aerhart (she saw Osama bin Laden's secret base in the South Pacific) and the whole deal with the murder of Kennedy. (Saddam Hussein was on the grassy knoll!)

    My father in law works for Alabama Power--and has lessoned me on the possiblities of terror strikes on the plants---

    There are so many "checks and balances" inside the operation of generating electricity that its next to impossible to shut the entire plant down at one time. The physical plant is here--the control room is 150 miles away--each looking at each others grid work---

    I would venture to say that it is hedonic America at fault--using way too much electricity--

    Stop with the conspiracy theories already. THe blackout wasn't the work of terrorists.


    There's no evidence of terrorism or coverup. Those who assert otherwise do so either in ignorance or do so in an attempt to spread falsehoods.

    Oh, please, Mrs. McCarthy!!!! ****personal attack removed****

    Hmmmmm, I wonder if Baghdad Bob had a hand in writing this article, since I don't recall seeing footage of looting, pillaging, or the masses on a rampage. You know, after all, he (Bob) had a unique way of seeing the events that were unfolding around him hehehe [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Baghdad Bob is the nickname of the former Iraqi Information Minister, who claimed there were no US troops in Baghdad, even though they were right across the street from him during this announcement! He's become an unofficial American icon/joke. He even has his own bobblehead, tee shirts, etc. [​IMG]

    Back in 1965, after the last great blackout in NYC, during the height of the civil rights protests, Flip Wilson was heard to say, "If we don't get what we want, next time we take out the water!" (He was joking)

    I agree claiming responsibility is a low/no cost method of terrorism. Those of us in the West may know better, but those in the Arab world with a limited knowledge of how things work here could easily believe the claim. (Even if Washington wanted to cover up something, Ottawa would blow the cover in a nanosecond.)

    It was not an overwhelmingly hot day and electricity usage was at only 75%.

    But we would be well served as a nation to quit listening to the environmental wackos and increase our available electricity and distribution system before we do have a long-term problem on down the road.
