A prediction

I predict that some time in October, likely quite late in the month, the valient men and women of the Homeland Security Department will foil a "terror plot." Likely throught the use of the much-debated procedures advocated by the Bush administration, such as unwarranted wiretaps. The foiling of this plot will be celebrated in the press and much public crowing will occur claiming credit.

All nicely before the mid-term election in the first week of November.

Will the plot actually have occurred? Will it be faked? Will the alleged perpetrators actually exist?

We shall see.

But if you say you would put it past this administration to cook up something like it, I would say you're either insufferably ignorant or a goddamned liar.

They don't have to fake it. They've already falsely taken credit for busting up the UK plot and greatly exagerated the threat from those morons in Florida. Besides, whatever happens: a terrorist attack, or no terrorist attack; a plot foiled, or no plot at all will be considered evidence of Republican righteousness.

falsely taken credit? didn't realize there was an expert in the subject around here!

wow you're quite the paranoid guy. conspiracy to the left, conspiracy to the right! DHS does work on a daily basis to prevent terrorist activity.

i know you're a cranky liberal, but give some credit sometime.

i have a prediction too. you're going to write a cranky post complaining about rigged elections, voter fraud, etc, sometime after the november election.

Agreed. Very predictable. And basically just a restatement of what most cranky conspiracy theorists already believe.

I didn't know anyone read this blog! :)

Hey, disagree with me all you like. But to believe that abuses of power like this do not exist and have not existed is just ignorant.

Here is the story of the FBI trumping up the florida "plot" to gain good press, in a reputable publication, the Washington Post.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, by the way. I don't believe Bush let the WTC attacks happen, that it was a controlled demolition, etc. etc. That stuff is implausible.

What isn't implausible is the Bush administration fabricating evidence and lying about particulars to achieve political ends.
