The conspiracy to ignore last Friday's terror attack in Chapel Hill is growing, and now extends to the upper reaches of the U.S government. This can only mean the terrorists are winning, or perhaps, may have already won.
"The PATRIOT Act has accomplished exactly what it was designed to do. It has helped us detect terror cells, disrupt terrorist plots and save American lives," President Bush said at yesterday's PATRIOT Act signing ceremony. "The PATRIOT Act has served America well, yet we cannot let the fact that America has not been attacked since September the 11th lull us into the illusion that the terrorist threat has disappeared. We still face dangerous enemies."
There you have it: America has not been attacked since September the 11th.
The conclusion is inescapable: Either President Bush is lying, which post-Iraq has been established beyond all reasonable doubt to be metaphysically impossible, or he is a member of the MSM. As I said, the terrorists may have already won.
Meanwhile, the Muslim extremist who used co-eds for speed bumps, Mohammed Taheri-azar, has been charged with nine counts of attempted first-degree murder and nine counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. Taheri-azar told police that he meant to kill people to avenge the treatment of Muslims around the world. Even so, the U.S. Attorney has yet to bring any terror-related charges in the case, no doubt awaiting orders from the Justice Department on how to proceed.
This makes sense as Rachel Brand, assistant Attorney General, is also part of the conspiracy. Brand declined to respond to a question asking why PATRIOT did not prevent Taheri-azar's attack, which he had planned for at least two months.
Remember, politically motivated attempted murder is not terror, but too much Sudafed is. Blackout. Indeed.
