Today we have an unspecified worldwide terror alert...right after the NSA had to appear before Congress to justify their snooping on Americans. No one in the media seems to have wondered if those dots connect.
Well, duh, of course those dots connect. How did I not notice that?
Another comment in the same thread compares this nation and its reaction to 9/11 to Moby Dick, in which Ahab is so blinded by his desire for revenge on the white whale that he sinks his ship and is himself killed in his irrational crusade to extract revenge. The white whale, of course, survives. Read it yourself, it's the second comment in the thread and is written by "mbrenner," whose comments are always worth reading.
