In the interest of fairness, the BBC reported yesterday, 8/17, that police searchers had pulled a suitcase full of bomb-making equipment from King's Wood, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where some of the suspected terrior conspirators lived. No one has confirmed the report or offered an inventory at this time.
And the ever changing back story has changed again. The Daily Express and Guardian cite unnamed intelligence sources in Pakistan as claiming that al-Qaeda number 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri, "probably"--the Dog loves these qualifiers--sanctioned the airline plot of Rashid Rauf and his gain of feebs--who hides their bomb-making equipment in a suitcase in a park? At least al-Zawahiri's not in a secret prison, like the putative mastermind al-Libbi.
Meanwhile, the various bomb scares on board planes remind the Dog of mass-hysteria driven witch hunts past. The Bushbuckers and their opposite numbers in al-Qaeda have succeeded, it would appear, in dragging us down the rat hole into the cesspool of all that is vile about humans and their culture--and they have done so in the name of their 'noble' causes.
