bin Laden's Latest

Osama bin Laden has released a new audio tape, and the CIA -- if they can be trusted -- has confirmed that the tape is authentic. He claims another attack on the US Homeland is in the offing. One tempting target would be the Super Bowl, which is being played in Detroit (about 50 miles from me).

The missus and I were discussing this, and she pointed out the potential international implications (for those who 'learned' geography in public schools, Canada's right across the river from Detroit).

Unfortunately, the game would be an excellent target. Of course, if terrorists were to try something, the White House would say something along the lines of "No one thought anyone would attack the Super Bowl".

"Black Sunday", anyone?

Or Tom Clancy's Sum of All Fears?

Twig's spokesdrone, little Scottie, said "We don't negotiate with terorists, we remove them" (or words to that effect). If that is the case, why are we in Iraq and not Afghanistan?

These people are amazing.
