In Other News

Grr. I stopped to look at one news story and ended up reading a bunch of them. I found this one particularly amusing, especially because it's probably true!

After all, technically, telling someone that you, or perhaps your big nasty crazy exploding Islamic Fundamentalist citizenry, are going to kill them counts as a "warning". It doesn't necessarily make you look any better, but, hey, at least you warned them!

"Why did I warn him? Oh, I was hoping he'd run away so I could get in a nice clean shot at his back."

Got a link? I think I know what you were talking about, but I want to be sure.

You should be able to click on the post title and go through to the link, that's why it's underlined.

Sorry. I did not realize your website worked that way.

Back to the topic, I agree with you. I'm not sure what this proves. Ok, Saddam warned us. He had no specifics at all. He didn't tell us bin Laden would do it. He didn't mention Al Qaeda.

What actions could we take based on this information? The only thing I can think of is to improve our intelligence gathering.

Hindsight is 20/20.
