Peckerheads of the NYPD Blotter


This is the kind of overreaction that we'd expect during the Bush years, not these days.

Four peckerheads, at least one of them intellectually challenged, attempted to buy bombs and explosives from someone who was a heavily supervised informant. They thought they were buying Stinger missiles on the streets of New York so they could shoot jets out of the sky and bomb two Jewish synagogues. One of them even regretted not being able to take down the World Trade Center.

Yet they never came close to acquiring either missiles, bombs or any explosive material and one of them didn't even seem to understand the arraignment proceedings.

Yet listen to the people in the second half of this video. You'd think that the FBI just busted up an actual al Qaeda sleeper cell. This is how paranoid we've gotten as a nation and, while terrorists should shoulder much of the blame for this, you also have the fear-mongering Republican party to blame for their color-coded terror threat levels, mushroom cloud campaign videos and stump speeches that basically come down to, "Elect me or die."

The very mention of the word "terrorism" and four half-wits trying to buy explosives to carry out a half-baked plan at best makes international news. Yet everyone's heaving sighs of relief and giving eachother high fives for capturing four idiots who appear to be even stupider than the other half-wits who planned to blow up JFK airport and the ones who almost got lost trying to fly a plane into the Liberty Tower in LA.

The foiling of that plot in 2002 was thanks to intelligence extracted through torture of KSM after he was captured in 2003, doncha know?

Meanwhile, the real guys are skulking around in virtual freedom hatching their next plot while we're mopping our brows and passing out commendations and promotions for catching four guys who combined sport an IQ about as high as Richard Reid's shoe size.

Agent provocateur, much?

It's ironic that the Feebs had a guy inside the first WTC bombing plot, but let it go forward because a crime had not been committed yet.

Now we see them creating networks that make terrorists out of cretins. Wonder where it starts? Are they running these "Muslim" groups in prison, cherry-picking the biggest morons for future set-ups, and BIG headlines for cops & prosecutors down the road?

Didn't hurt Giuliani, or any of number of other ADA's & AUSA's turned pol's.

Funny that not ONE actual serious, "professional" terrorist plot has been broken up in the US since 9/11. Torture works? Prove it, "24" fans. Name ONE time it worked.

Even the Gitmo'd have mostly been found innocent, or guilty of some minor crime. The whole thing is a sick joke.

"Tell that to the family and friends of the 3000 plus lost at ground zero."

Opps, that should have read

What about the million dead Iraqis, don't they count?

I get so worked up when I hear that 911 reference! We'll just go kill a bunch of people and that will make us safer. Put them in special prisons but God forbid, don't bring them to our country. They're terrorist ya know! Sometimes I wonder if the average American knows how stupid they look to the rest of the world?

To All On The Right:

As someone who used to live two blocks from the WTC, and who lost family, friends, neighbors and co-workers on 9/11, you Republican *ssh*le, nobody wants to see justice done more than I do.

And by justice, I don't mean one of your kind's pogroms of Muslims, or lynching of any random dark-skinned person. Nor will I and the other 17,000,000 inhabitants of the NYC area be satisfied by another load of govenment bullsh*t, which is all this arrest is.

Whether 9/11 was done, as we have only Bushco's word for it, by Al Qaeda, or by Bushco itself, or by person or persons unknown, no one has been brought to justice for it. Whoever did it, they are STILL out there. And the Republicans have done NOTHING about that which will make us any safer. Quite the contrary.

Hundreds of thousands of innocent people from countries that had nothing to do with 9/11 have been, and continue to be brutally slaughtered by the US government, for which all Americans are now responsible. If there ever is another attack on American soil, and by a Middle-Eastern terrorist organization, it will be because of what the Republicans have done "over there," not in spite of it.

We've had enough of your stupid redneck *ssh*le solutions, conservatards. Go crawl up some Fascist country's *ss, if you can find one. We real Americans are never going to let you turn this country into one of those. Get f**king lost. You'll NEVER see power in this country again, you incompetent, evil, insane LOSERS.

You Repuklickin's let this country be attacked and then you did nothing about it. You're nothing but traitors and cowards. Don't ever open your mouths again.

Uh, Cosa? You can say "ass" and "fucking" here. Or even "assfucking", which isn't my cup of tea but whatever floats your boat.

But you don't have to censor yourself here.

Yes, Pork, I know that. But Internet filtering software is already blocking sites for this kind of content, and even the Brits were talking about making it illegal. I don't mess with other people's blogs. Your choices are up to you, this is my choice. I don't think anyone fails to see what I was saying because of a couple of asterixes.

What an uptight country we live in. We go into apoplexy over seeing Janet Jackson's nipple for 1/1000 of a second yet make endless excuses for Israel blowing the heads off countless babies and toddlers.

Some interesting stuff about the FBI agent who was involved in this clusterfuck--apparently it isn't his first. Not only was he neck-deep in the Maher Arar rendition, he was supposed to follow up on a couple of the 9/11 guys in AUGUST '01, but didn't get around to it...
