Forced by the Supreme Court to charge Yaser Hamdi or release him, Ashcroft lets him go. I guess he wasn't such a dangerous terrorist after all?
Suspected terrorists detained: 5000
Terrorists convicted: 0
Hey, at least they have the Cat Stevens problem in hand: today a flight from Heathrow to Washington was diverted to Maine to protect our capital city from being annoyed by yet another annoying "Peace Train" remake. Another close call, averted by the wisdom and courage of our protectors at Homeland Security.
Meanwhile, back in hell, the real news makes me want to puke. Another guy about to die, nothing we can do about it. His name is Ken Bigley, from Liverpool, England. He's married and has a son. Everybody's favorite sociopathic monster, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, says he'll kill Mr. Bigley unless the US releases all the Iraqi women we have in custody. Trouble is, we only have two women in custody: Dr. Germ and Mrs. Anthrax, both of whom are specialists in biological warfare.
Hm. I wonder why Zarqawi is so keen to spring them from jail? This is like a nightmare set in an episode of "Batman" with Zarqawi as the Joker, cackling at his evil plan to poison the good citizens of Gotham . . . only this is the real world, folks.
Anybody who still believes we are "Winning the War on Terror" put your hands together. Now repeat after me:
"I do believe in faeries! I do believe in faeries! I do believe in faeries!"
