So how many phony terrorist plots have been foiled since 2001?
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 05:59 AM by Philosoraptor
I love it when the U.S. or Britain have these big, showy terror plot bust ups, they are easy to pull off because nothing actually happened. They just say "we've made you all safer by catching a terror plot and stopping it"!

Like the Miami 7, and countless others, like the mysterious packages found at airports almost daily, the fear factor must be constantly re-enforced in our psyches.

Sure, I guess it really happens, but I see most of these terror plot bust ups and cheap, phony photo ops from the department of homeland paranoia.

Call me a crazy theorist looking for a clue. I didn't used to be paranoid of the govt. really, I didn't, but after 6 straight years of this shit, I'm always looking around for reasons not to believe what I see.

2. The surprising thing is that they have caught ALL of them
Why don't one or two succeed? Are they (the bush* misadministration) that good? (Of course, if in reality ALL of them is zero, then it's believable.)

3. Short answer: A brazilian.
How much is that? Ask Bush, I'm sure someone told him when he asked that...

7. "People shouldn't be afraid of their governments..."
I might have to buy V for Vendetta on DVD this weekend.

Anyways, I feel the same as you. Details too sketchy, like did they even find any explosives?
