In the Wake of Arrests in Three States, Right-Wingers Rush to Defend Terror Suspects, Criticize FBIIt really is amazing how coordinated the strategy is becoming on the left. Are they all allowed on the journolist now? Apparently jumping to conclusions is back in style.
But really, should they even be using McVeigh as a comparison here? He wasn't an ardent Christian like these Michigan loonytoons and besides, one of the left's great heroes, former Clinton and Bush counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke wrote in his book "Against All Enemies":
(On Page 127, Clarke notes that it's possible that al-Qaida operatives in the Philippines "taught Terry Nichols how to blow up the Oklahoma Federal Building." Intelligence places Nichols there on the same days as Ramzi Yousef, and "we do know that Nichols's bombs did not work before his Philippines stay and were deadly when he returned.")And note to the Fire Dogs--that's Slate, quoting Clarke, not some story in World Nut Daily. It's never been settled as to whether Nichols took a bomb-making lesson from Yousef or one of his al Qaeda pals in the Philippines. Evidently Clinton never interrogated Yousef enough to find out very much so we'll probably never know. But if he did, well--that would change everything, wouldn't it?
