The Fort Dix plot: ‘terrorists’?
From The Discalced Yooper
The idea of sundry nincompoops preparing for a takeover of Fort Dix by playing paintball in the Poconos while shouting jihad slogans doesn’t get me panicked.

The ‘sting’ described on TV by the US attorney — no doubt one of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ ‘loyal’ appointees deemed worthy of keeping their jobs — suggests that had the FBI not enticed the malefactors with opportunity, nothing much would have occurred.

This is an anæmic attempt by the administration to strike fear into the hearts of Americans and allow it to say, ‘See, that’s why we have to stay in Iraq!’
[The culprits are from Macedonia (they’re Albanian), Turkey and Jordan not Iraq.] It smells like the Gulf of Tonkin, the Lusitania and the battleship Maine to me.
