Shocked! Shocked! Shocked!
Headline on Prince Walid News Network, aka Fox:
"Today residents of UK woke up to the shocking news that two of the terrorists are doctors; that they don't fit the usual model of disaffected youth."What goddamn usual model?
Al Qaeda is an army of doctors and engineers. Doctor Zawahiri invented it, Engineer bin Laden funded it, and all of the 19 soldiers who pulled off 9/11 were professional-class men. That's exactly why al-Qaeda is so dangerous and successful.
The "newscasters" have been reading
these facts for several years now, with no exceptions. Why does this idiotic poor-and-disaffected idea persist when it has never been supported by a single fact?
Serious terrorists, even before the current Mohammedan set, have always come from upper-middle class backgrounds. The low-level recruits in a place like Palestine may be poor and disaffected youth, but that situation is more of a guerrilla army than a band of terrorists.

And while I'm growling and grumbling: Why in the hell are the terrorists still described as "alleged attackers" and "suspects"?????
When you have footage of a man covered in flames crawling out of a burning car, and he pushes aside people who try to put him out, while shouting "Allah! Allah! Allah!" ... this man is not an alleged suspect. He is an enemy soldier.
The continual use of these legalistic terms keeps our response locked in the court model. The military model does not assume enemy soldiers to be "innocent until Mike Nifong decides they are guilty"; the military model assumes the enemy soldier needs to be killed until his commander or national leader surrenders completely.
One more thing: the fact that he was shouting "Allah! Allah! Allah!" has been completely censored from all American coverage of this event. His Mohammedan loyalty has been tossed in the Memory Hole. Censorship is needed in a war, but the correct job of censorship is to prevent the enemy from knowing our plans, not to prevent us from recognizing the enemy.

Later: Now that we have at least three MDs involved in this plot, my suspicions about biological agents are tingling wildly. Wonder if any of these docs are specialists in bacteria?
