The Tsunami Conspiracies


"[I]n a disturbing echo of the Sept. 11 canard that thousands of Jews were warned to stay away from the World Trade Center," notes Sunday's NYT, "rumors have circulated [in Indonesia] that the tsunami was set off by an American or Israeli nuclear test. The supposed proof was the warning of the coming wave received by the American military base on Diego Garcia."

Variations on the theme (thanks to Chrenkoff) involve Wall Street bankers, as well as punishment for sordid Christmas celebrations and malfeasance by an alliance of the U.S., Israel, and India, both of the latter offered here.
