The threat of terrorism against the US homeland is in some aspects "at its most heightened state" since the 9/11 attacks, US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has said.
"Forget all about the economy and the mortgage-backed security fraud, and the fraudclosures, and the homelessness, and the poverty, and starvation, and the FCIC report that said it would all have been avoided if Wall Street played by the rules and the US Government had enforced the rules. And forget all about the gulf oil disaster, which also could have been avoided if the US Government has enforced the rules. And please forget all about how the US Government flat-out lied to you about Saddam's 'nookular' bombs, the level of unemployment, Iran's nuclear power station, global warming, 9-11, TWA 800, JFK, RFK, MLK, OK City and ALL that other stuff. Forget about TSA grabbing your crotch, looting (and breaking) your laptops, and giving you cancer with those scanners and STDs with those gloves. Forget about the reading of your emails, the tapping of your phones, the tracking of your movements and the raids into your computers. Forget all about that stuff; think about TERROR! There are TERRORISTS hiding under your bed and in your closets! They are coming to steal socks out of your dryer and underwear out of your drawers. They are ripping the tags off of your seat cushions. They are planning to cause errors on your 1040 forms! They are planning to fart in elevators! They are going to rig the votes on American Idol. They are coming. Any second they will attack. Any second. Any second now, Really, They are coming, Honest, Any second now. (Someone phone Tel Aviv and ask them what the holdup is.) Ooooooh, scary SCARY terrorists! " -- Official White Horse Souse
