Maddening: U.S. Media "Spikes" Arrest of Terrorists Targeting U.S.
By: Nick Danger · Section: News

If you're a regular reader of Turkish Press or Geo in Pakistan, you already know that on December 23,

Three Algerians arrested in an anti-terrorist operation in southern Italy are suspected of being linked to a planned new series of attacks in the United States, Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said Friday.

The attacks would have targeted ships, stadiums or railway stations in a bid to outdo the September 11, 2001 strikes by Al-Qaeda in New York and Washington which killed some 2,700 people, Pisanu said.

But if you have been relying on the U.S. media to warn you about things like this, you haven't heard anything about it.

You would think that the arrest of terrorists planning to "outdo 9/11" would warrant some news coverage in the United States, but that's not what the editors at your Ministry of Truth decided. On that day in history, they thought the important news was that six Sudanese were abducted in Iraq, that Fidel Castro said that Bush is 'very much a fool,' that there was a vast US effort on eavesdropping (the NSA), and that the federal government was running a top secret program to monitor radiation levels at over a hundred Muslim sites in the Washington, D.C., area.

So the news that day was not that terrorists had been planning to blow up ships,
stadiums or railway stations in the United States, but that things were going badly in Iraq, that President Bush was thought to be a fool, and that the government has been spying on people in the U.S.

Do you ever wonder whose side these people are on?

It seems it is not the same side I am on.

They are subconsciously on the side of the nihilists. They seek the suicide of Western Civilization. I recent found my copy of James Burnham’s seminal work and hope to spend some time reading it this week.

Shorter terrye: "Look! There's a terrorist behind that tree! Why, oh why won't anyone listen anymore? Dammit where's that good ol' spirit of 9/11? We must be ever vigilant lest we let our guard down and see what's really happening."

Hmmm...I hear one of Bin Laden's tank battalians has broken through our lines at Savannah and communication with besieged San Antonio has been out since late last night. I fear the worst.

My,my,would you look at that,there was a terrorist after all.
Yes I agree Markg8, eternal vigilance is the only course.
