IS TERRORISM A GAME OR A BUSINESS?
NOT BUYING THE TERRORISM COVER STORY ANYMORE
NO MORE CONVENIENT COINCIDENCES
by Gordon Duff, Senior Staff Writer
After the Christmas bombing fiasco in Detroit, pretty much everyone is talking about new body scanners and more torture and terrorism against decent law abiding airline passengers. Are we saying a word about the Dutch who lied to us about the terrorist's passport or the Israelis, yes, let's admit who they really are, whose airport security companies only seem to protect El Al planes and nothing else? No more terrorist "walk arounds" or hidden box cutters on planes. We aren't buying it anymore. We have had one coincidence too many.
Do we talk about folks like Michael Chertoff, the creator of our totally broken system of phony counter terrorism when he headed Homeland Security with its spying on everyone BUT terrorists. Chertoff, is the guy who now is out selling radioactive scanners to fix the problems caused by his own incompetence. He is going to make tens of millions off his own utter incompetence, or what we hope is incompetence. Does anyone really think we can stay ahead of the human mind with gadgets operated by illiterates, incompetents and, at times, terrorist sympathizers?
