Why Does Bruce Schneier Hate America????

Oh dear, there he goes:
The recently publicized terrorist plot to blow up John F. Kennedy International Airport, like so many of the terrorist plots over the past few years, is a study in alarmism and incompetence: on the part of the terrorists, our government and the press.

Terrorism is a real threat, and one that needs to be addressed by appropriate means. But allowing ourselves to be terrorized by wannabe terrorists and unrealistic plots -- and worse, allowing our essential freedoms to be lost by using them as an excuse -- is wrong.
...
The "Miami 7," caught last year for plotting -- among other things -- to blow up the Sears Tower, were another incompetent group: no weapons, no bombs, no expertise, no money and no operational skill. And don't forget Iyman Faris, the Ohio trucker who was convicted in 2003 for the laughable plot to take out the Brooklyn Bridge with a blowtorch. At least he eventually decided that the plan was unlikely to succeed.

I don't think these nut jobs, with their movie-plot threats, even deserve the moniker "terrorist." But in this country, while you have to be competent to pull off a terrorist attack, you don't have to be competent to cause terror. All you need to do is start plotting an attack and -- regardless of whether or not you have a viable plan, weapons or even the faintest clue -- the media will aid you in terrorizing the entire population.

The most ridiculous JFK Airport-related story goes to the New York Daily News, with its interview with a waitress who served Defreitas salmon; the front-page headline blared, "Evil Ate at Table Eight."

[ cf Portrait of the Modern Terrorist as an Idiot ]
Oh ME! Oh MY!!!

Clearly when we allow waitress's to so Openly Support International Terrorism, WE MUST START DEEPER INVESTIGATIONS into all of the sleeper cells...

Clearly if Americans are Not Terrorized Enough Yet, we MUST keep on moving them to the "Left Behind" phase, where only the True Believers Will Be SAVED!!!! All the Rest Are GOING TO BURN IN HELL!!!!

Or at least be next to the great deep fat fryer of The French!!!
