Something not right about recent terror arrests

Hat tip to other bloggers who have brought this issue up, in particular my friend Lucidity.

The arrest of the 17 in Toronto and now 7 in Miami seems awfully convenient to me.

The 17 "Keystone terrorists" were hatching a plan to storm parliament and behead Steven Harper. A more unlikely scenario can hardly be imagined.

And now the 7 in Miami who many in the press have now accurately labeled "a cult" in the "nascent stages of a plan".

To me it reeks of the yoyo type "color alert" system in place to scare the American people into "staying the course" with old Dubya. Since old GWB and his Republican cronies have ratings in the crapper, it's time to roll out the old saws.

1) A new message from Bin Laden
2) The death of Zarqawi (do we really believe we could not have captured him or killed him earlier?)
3) The arrests of "hardened terrorists bent on waging war against the US"

It seems that the spin machine is in high gear over this. Rolling out these arrests as evidence of them "stopping the terrorists" to draw attention away from the morass that is Iraq.

Expect to see more "arrests" of "hardened terrorists" in North America as the war continues to go badly (state of emergency in Baghdad, worst violence since the beginning of the occupation, etc.) and more and more people want to see a timeline for withdrawal.

PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN, I AM THE GREAT AND POWERFUL OZ!
