Among Us

If there were any doubt they mean to carry out the Fatwa below, and right now are planning and plotting to slaughter your family in their beds, or your children at school, we have this item:
September 30, 2004

A man arrested by U.S. authorities in Iraq had a computer disk in his possession containing a public report downloaded from a U.S. Department of Education Web site on crisis planning in school districts, including San Diego Unified.

The man was described as an Iraqi national with connections to terrorism and the insurgency that is fighting U.S. forces in Iraq. Officials in San Diego said the man's intentions were unknown.
Ha! His intentions were unknown! Talk about willful know-nothingness. The next 15 paragraphs of the story repeat variations on the mantra, "No specific threat! No danger to children! Nothing to see here folks, move along!"

I mean it's a public document, a terrorist in Iraq might have any number of innocent reasons to be interested in the crisis-response plans of a San Diego school. I mean, everyone's got stuff like that on them, right?

Just to make sure the point has been made, the article ends with the rich thighslapper,
"If somebody read the article, they would say we're not going to pick San Diego because they have a very good plan in place," Lansdowne said. "It's probably more good news than bad news."

It's good news the terrorists are reading about school crisis plans, you see?

Don't think these demons in human form aren't among us either. Just today, I had the extraordinary experience while having lunch at a restaurant. As I was getting ready to leave, I heard my waitress tell a nearby customer that at the table across from mine just over 3 years ago, she personally served a group of the 9/11 hijackers on the Saturday before they ended up in a field in Shanksville, PA.

From what I overheard, they were rude and, apparently, poor tippers.
