The Mediacrats: Clueless

For your reading pleasure, I refer you to a list of recent terrorist threats that have been foiled -- here in America as well as in Europe -- courtesy of our fine (but much maligned) intel and law enforcement communities:

> Egyptian Arrested with Aviation Materials: Student from Egypt, in the country illegally, found with a pilot’s uniform, a chart of Memphis International Airport and a DVD titled “How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act:” Student Arrested After Pilot Uniform Found... I’m sure there’s a perfectly logical explanation...

> Four Indicted in Los Angeles Terror Plot: Four men, including the head of a radical Islamic prison gang, were indicted on federal charges of plotting terrorist attacks against military facilities, the Israeli Consulate and synagogues in Los Angeles...

Named in the indictment were Levar Haley Washington, 25; Gregory Vernon Patterson, 21; Hammad Riaz Samana, 21; and Kevin James, 29. The four conspired to wage war against the U.S. government through terrorism, kill armed service members and murder foreign officials, according to the indictment... [they] allegedly conducted surveillance of the Los Angeles targets... Law enforcement officials have previously said that the military facilities included National Guard sites, though the indictment does not specify.

The attacks were to be carried out with firearms and other weapons at synagogues during Jewish holidays “to maximize the number of casualties,” authorities said. Patterson allegedly bought a .223-caliber rifle in July. In Los Angeles, authorities said the suspects could have attacked as soon as the Yom Kippur Jewish holiday in October.

> Flyer Calls for "Jihad" Against the LAPD: KFI NEWS has obtained a copy of a flyer that’s been circulated in South Los Angeles, calling on members of two violent street gangs to join the Nation of Islam in a jihad, or holy war, against the LAPD...

> Hundreds of Islamic Terrorists in UK: Police are monitoring “hundreds” of potential terrorists in Britain, according to Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary. Mr Clarke, along with Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, was giving evidence to the all-party Home Affairs Select Committee looking into the aftermath of the July 7 bombings and July 21 attempted bombings...

> 5,000 Suicide Bombers in Germany: BERLIN, Germany (AP) — Germany is home to between 3,000 and 5,000 potential Islamic suicide attackers, a senior security official touted as the country’s next interior minister has been quoted as saying. Guenther Beckstein, currently interior minister in the German state of Bavaria, said on Monday in an interview with the online Netzeitung newspaper that he was worried small cells of “fanatics” could prepare attacks without detection.“...

The mediacrats are heretofore unable to string these stories together into a cohesive whole. Why? I can't ascribe their motives to anti-Americanism (yet). So I'll chalk it up to incompetence, willful stupidity and/or suicidal partisanship until I learn otherwise.

Contrast this coverage with the ravings of Kos and Puffington Toast fave Cindy Sheehan who, as of last Friday, was calling for the U.S. to withdraw from "occupied New Orleans."

Ah, the Left. It makes you yearn for the good old days of 2004, when the moonbats were at least lucid.

Oh, and how can I forget the latest in an egregious set of anti-American initiatives formulated or promulgated by none other than Representative John Conyers (D-MI)?

I got a kick out of this hysterical screed from barking moonbat Democrat Congressman, John Conyers, concerning the recommendation {gulp} that photo ID’s be required to cast ballots in federal elections.

You know, the exact same documents the poor and the elderly currently utilize: to get food stamps, to obtain SSI, Medicaid, Social Security, and other [government] benefits, to cash checks, and to drive cars?!

But I feel Rep. Conyers’ pain.

After all, if Democrats could not engage in systematic and massive election fraud – e.g., paying people to vote multiple times in multiple precincts and casting ballots on behalf of corpses and family pets – their political prospects would go merely from being disastrous to beyond disastrous.

Yes, as the real world spins perilously close to a nuclear Iran and attacks launched on American soil, Congressman Conyers is busy playing caddy to anti-American interests. What possible constituency benefits from voter fraud? Well, the corpse, felon and multi-state voting blocs of the Democratic party, for starters. I'll refer you to the Presidential Election, Wisconsin circa 2004 and the Washington Gubernatorial Race for laff-a-minute reference links.

Just when you think it can't get worse for the Mediacrats, it does.
