Toldjah So: Nutroots yawn over story of thwarted Ft. Dix plot


Now, let’s imagine what the left’s reaction would be had the plot actually been carried out:


As with everything else with the left, they are full of sound and fury signifying nothing but bluster. If an attack is carried out, “Bush knew.” If it’s stopped before it happens, it was “over-hyped.”

Amazing. They wig out over a stupid non-issue, but essentially say “BFD” to a real one involving national security.

I think a petition should be started, filled with signatures, and sent to Webster’s dictionary, to implore them to put a picture of the Democratic party’s symbol next to the word “predictable.”

Update and Bump: Well whadda ya know? Keith Olbermann, in yet another effort to pander for viewers, also claims that this thwarted plot was over-hyped. Oh, and the terrorists who wanted to kill our soldiers at Fort Dix? Well, they weren’t terrorists. To KO, they were merely “morons” (via Olbermannwatch – with emphasis added by me):

OLBERMANN: And one other note today. The ultimate premise of the war in Iraq and the ultimate premise, certainly, of the Republican presidential campaign ahead, counterterrorism. The FBI claims it has broken up a plot to attack Fort Dix in New Jersey. The flaw, though, in the breathless reporting of the purported terror cell, the bureau infiltrated the six-person group after its members took video of themselves practicing with assault weapons, brought the tape to a photo store, and had it transferred to a DVD.

The details of the supposed plot don’t seem to hold together that well either, though that did not stop extensive and entirely credulous coverage on TV, the Internet, in print today. The men supposedly had plans to gain access to the base disguised as pizza delivery guys, then cut the power somehow, they, quote, “hit four, five, or six Humvees and light the whole place, and retreat without any losses.” And take the tape of yourselves practicing and have it copied at PhotoMat. In other words, the FBI has arrested six morons.

If indeed they could be described as morons, would this be a good time to say to KO: “Takes one to know one”?
