Be not Afraid

For there are no terrorist here:

Six years of investigations and prosecutions have turned up little evidence of Islamic jihadists at work in the United States, according to a study released Monday.

The study, conducted by New York University's Center on Law and Security, tracked 510 cases billed as terrorism-related when arrests were made.
he study found only four people -- including confessed al Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui and "shoe bomber" Richard Reid -- were convicted of planning attacks within the United States.

"The vast majority of cases turn out to include no link to terrorism once they go to court," the report found. The analysis "suggests the presence of few, if any, prevalent terrorist threats currently within the U.S."

The report questioned the usefulness of the anti-terrorist USA Patriot Act, passed after the September 11, 2001, attacks, finding prosecutors relied primarily on previous laws.

Really what we have in this Country was one spectacular and singular attack. And then nothing else. Because there is nothing else. The men who performed the 9/11 attacks turn out to be the only real terrorist in America. There are no others. There have been no more attacks. No new terrorists have been arrested. So there where no more terrorist in the United States. All this fuss, this paranoia, is over nothing.

Kinda makes you wonder about that one spectacular and singular attack that just happened to facilitate the Cheney agenda that was already in the planning stages.....
