Bravo to the British police for foiling a plot to blow up a bunch of airliners.
Jeez, these terrorists are obsessed, aren’t they? I wonder what got them so pissed off. I wish I could give a dose of it to the offensive line of the Minnesota Vikings. Those guys don’t seem real mad at anybody.
And, hey, kudos to whomever woke up President Bush this morning and got him to “make a statement” about the arrests. It sounded like he thought there might be some U.S. law enforcement involved, although it’s been the only story all day and I don’t think I’ve heard anything about U.S. cooperation in any of it. I’m sure by tomorrow Bush will have a better-spun version that implies that he was supervising the entire operation.
Seriously, this is the kind of police work needed to keep the world safe, not the Bush administration’s bull-in-a-china-shop, invade-first, ask-questions-later technique. I’m sure it’s not easy, but it’s the right way to fight the small number of wackos who want to become martyrs.
