    This is going to be comedy gold for the next year.

    One quote says it all:

    "This group was more aspirational than operational," said John Pistole, the FBI's deputy director.

    A bunch of wannabes with no ability to do anything.

    That sounds like a good description of Fenian Streisand.

    I think they were in cahoots with the guys arrested up here.

    An even better look at their "farcical" plans...


    I can't wait to see Dateline NBC start running "black Muslim" stings just as soon as their Internet pedophilia investigations run out of steam.
  6. The announcement comes as the Bush administration faces questions about the execution of its war on terror. On Friday, several newspapers reported that the Department of Treasury and the CIA have been reviewing private financial transactions to detect terrorists since the Sept. 11 attacks. And next week, the Supreme Court is set to decide whether the administration can prosecute enemy combatants imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay in secret military trials.

    Coincidence can be such a horror.
    (DyePack made a funny, BTW.)

    Yesterday on NPR's ATC the Treasury undersecretary responsible for running the program was interviewed at length. He was straightforward, gave very detailed answers, explained how the program works, named names of other companies and officials involved in oversight, even pointed out some of the mistakes that had been made in the program under his direction and the steps taken to correct them.

    All in all, he made a program that at first set off alarm bells with me sound far more legitimate and useful in the war on terror.

    If more Bush officials acted like this guy (his first name was Stewart, not sure his last name) I'd have a little more faith in the system.

    But of course, he'll probably be fired by AG Gonzalez or Rove any minute now.
  8. 1) There's no reason to believe him, given where he works.
    2) If it is so straightforward, why wasn;t it brought to Congress like it was supposed to be?

    This administration's currency is hypocrisy.

    Oh guardian of the left wing, you might consider the established pattern in this revelation and watch your back. The administration is probably on your trail of wail too.

    Then maybe it's a good time for you to start teaching us some of that karate, bobble.

    bobble, you old cock-gobbler, tell us more tales of your indeterminate colored belt and the cinderblocks you broke for Christ.

    Or, better yet, you been running any more freelance internet pedophile stings this week?
