Thanks to the men and women around the world who are hard at work combating the ever-present threat of terrorism by Islamic fundamentalists, a significant plot was uncovered and thwarted.
Much will be said and written about this latest attempt by the terrorist thugs to strike at the West, but there are a few things I’m pondering:
- Some liberals say that we should be putting all our efforts into catching or killing Osama bin Laden, but I think he’s mostly irrelevant now. If Osama had been captured, would this attempt not have happened? I don’t think so.
- The British papers are writing about “Asian” men being arrested, but no one appears to be willing to utter the dreaded word “Muslim” for fear of offending. Time to call a spade a spade, folks! President Bush reiterates what should be obvious that the U.S. is “at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation.” And just as obviously, CAIR goes bonkers over President Bush identifying the terrorists.
- Given the success at stopping this attack, I must say a hearty “Thank you!” to the men and women of the CIA, FBI, Senate, House, and other government personel who didn’t leak any of this to the press. And I wish you would collectively shut the hell up on any other investigations or anti-terrorist activities.
UPDATE (8/10/2006 4:58:29 PM): Cox and Forkum do a good job of summing up the results of this bust.
