Summer blockbuster

I don't like the looks of this. Yahoo's featured news story:

The return of al-Qaida

U.S. intelligence reports al-Qaida is at its strongest since before 9/11.

This was news two days ago. That it's still "featured" and that it's nicely slugged (on the Yahoo home page) for movie-like consumption is not a good sign.

As many in the blog neighborhood have pointed out, this looks like propaganda groundwork for a false-flag attack, nicely drawn out in drips and drabs.

And although I avoid broadcast media, it appears from the links at the bottom of the AP story that ABC is revving up the terror show:

Al Qaeda is reportedly back to its pre-9/11 operational capacity.

Extra-Vigilant Homeland Security

And right on time: Senators Lieberman, McCain, Kyl, Graham, and Coleman today introduced a bipartisan amendment to the Defense Authorization Act, confronting the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran over its proxy attacks on American soldiers in Iraq. They are all quoted, and they sound like children who've been told they can't have a toy.

Senate Shows Support In 97-0 Vote

I feel ill.

It couldn't be connected to the Appropriations Committee's ruling to de-fund the OVP a couple days ago.

Could it?
