Fed Dicks Nix Dix Trix

Albania is so joining the Axis of Evil.

OK, seriously, 6 people get arrested but there are 2 paid informants (according to the CNN report). That means in any "terrorist" cell 33% of the folks are on our government's payroll. It's sort of a growth industry--mamas, do let your sons grow up to be snitches.

Also note "a law enforcement source told CNN the group played paintball." If we're going to crack down on violent video games, maybe we need to stop paintball, which is simply a breeding ground for killers of all stripes, or should I say splatters. Then again, I can see defenders claim if we outlaw paintball, only painters will have paint. In many cases there's no worse terror than a bad artist, and I'm looking at you Thomas Kinkade.

Nice Variety-style headline. Where's King Zog when you need him?

Perhaps we on the left shouldn't make light of a success in the war on terror. Even if these six were just a ragged bunch of wild and crazy guys egged on by federal agents, isn't disrupting their "cell" a good thing? If we want folks on the right to be reasonable about Iraq, global warming, stem cell research, and the social, economic, and ecological disasters of corporate globalization, etc., etc., shouldn't we be prepared to give them reason in return on issues of violent extremists?

Patrick--

Well, I'll be reasonable when it's a reasonable threat...as Kevin Drum reports "these guys dropped off jihadi videos at a local store, talked to Philly cops about getting a map of Ft. Dix, were still trying to procure weapons after 17 months of planning, and practiced for the attack by playing paintball."

At this point I'm just too cynical about BushCo and assume they have a slew of these kind of inept folks that they will arrest whenever they need a break in the news cycle. Sorry, but that's where all their dishonesty and rigging everything for political gain has led me.

Given that Alberto's on the ropes, I can't see this as anything more than a wild ooga booga roundhouse, especially after the revelations about the so-called dirty bomber and the Florida "terrorist" cell, who apparenlty got all their ideas from the FBI informer. At any rate, until the G-man's gone, Fed cred's dead.

The scariest part...Fort Dix doesn't require any security measures for Pizza Delivery folks.

And, in all honesty, I'm not trusting any "news" coming from a US Attorney who's on Gonzo's "Advisory" panel.
