And The Really Scary Part Here Is....

We get this tasty tidbit:
Six men charged with swearing allegiance to al Qaeda and plotting to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago were refused bond on Wednesday by a U.S. judge who called them a danger to the community.

The six pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges they had conspired to wage war against the U.S. government by blowing up commercial and government buildings, including FBI offices and jails holding Muslim prisoners.

Government officials described them after their arrest last month as "homegrown terrorists" but said they posed no real threat because they had no actual al Qaeda contacts, no weapons and no means of carrying out attacks.

At a bond hearing on Wednesday, their attorneys said the defendants were manipulated by paid FBI informants who did most of the talking and then took conversations out of context.

"This case is essentially something the government set up, to knock it down," said John Wylie, attorney for alleged ringleader Narseal Batiste.

But the level of fun filled comedy here is just Way To WhichEver...

It will be interesting to see how long the media follows this case. Will this case implode like so many of the others that have fallen all to bits, and the Prosecution has been obliged to settle for what they can, after the Headline Noise has come and left....

All of which of course must complicate the Whine Festival of those who were so not sure how to cope with the CRISIS that the US Supreme's Keep whining that American Law is The Law In America!!! And that maybe if the Government wants to have super duper special trial cases that majikally the congress will need to step up to the plate and write some real live Kangaroo Court Rules....

Or they could say, "Hey, what if we actually thought that these were, you know, like criminal cases..." You know, from that time before the Iranian Flying Saucers so changed everything...

But which ever way, I proudly stand with Lewis Prothero, and chant out "Britain Will Prevail!!!!
