    From the MSNBC story:

    "But officials told NBC News the alleged conspirators never acquired explosives, never had a definitive plan, and no attack was ever imminent. In fact, two federal officials described the group as long on anger but short on everything else."

    Well, with the situation continuing to deteriorate for the Bush administration in Iraq don't be surprised if we continue to hear about one of these alleged plots every other month or so. Also, Giuliani's only issue that resonates with the War Party base is the so-called "War on Terror" and stories like this one might keep his poll numbers up.

    The only thing that the Bush administration and the War Party have left to sell is fear itself.

    And the only thing that others have to sell is Bush-Is-Hitler.

    Obviously this was not serious because as we all know, no one actually wants to hurt America or Americans.

    So Ken, how long should officials have waited to arrest these men? Till they had explosives? Until they actually planted them? Until they tried to detonate them? At what point do you believe that officials should step in?

    Is when they attempt to enter the country an option?

    If they legally entered the country, what would detain them for?

    Defreitas is described by one law enforcement official as “a sad sack” and “not a Grade A terrorist,” who would have been incapable of carrying out any attack. A friend described him as "not smart enough" to have carried out the attack.
    In several other cases, we see a pattern where near-retarded individuals are used as patsies for terror plots orchestrated by intelligence agencies because they are easily manipulated and cannot defend themselves after the fact.
    From out of nowhere, Defreitas goes from embracing American culture and enjoying jazz music to dressing in traditional Muslim garb and referring to himself as Mohammed while planning a devastating attack due to his supposed hatred of the west.


    The basic tenet that the terror threat has been overhyped and magnified a thousand-fold for political propaganda is proven alone by documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act that show only 0.0015 percent of the total number of cases filed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security were terrorism related , despite the fact that the Bush administration has repeatedly asserted that it is the primary focus of the DHS.


    As more details leak out, there seems little doubt that the JFK airport plot will dissipate into nothing more than another hyped terror alert - coddled, molded, and directed by the government, before being unleashed on an increasingly skeptical American public in another vain attempt to prop up the flagging legitimacy of the "war on terror".

    "Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." --Henry Kissingerspeaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderberg meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.

    Bush is not Hitler, but he isn't exactly the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

    Continually hyping inane conspiricy theories is politics of fear, but I guess that's not a problem.

    Both of the terrorist plots that were broken up recently were pretty good ideas, fumbled by not too bright terrorists. Evidently the intelligent ones are busy in Iraq.

    They probably could have planned to mix Mentos and Diet Coke and chunk it over the fence, and we would get the same doomsday predictions from the press.
