How about these latest adventures in Homeland of Paranoia and Insecurity…
An elderly man who wrote in a letter to the editor about Saddam Hussein’s execution that “they hanged the wrong man” got a visit from Secret Service agents concerned he was threatening President Bush.
The letter by Dan Tilli, 81, was published in Monday’s edition of The Express-Times of Easton, Pa. It ended with the line, “I still believe they hanged the wrong man.” Tilli said the statement was not a threat. “I didn’t say who — I could’ve meant (Osama) bin Laden,” he said Friday.
The agents search Tilli’s apartment and took pictures of him.
And this is complete BS. How far up Bush’s posterior is Qantas?
A passenger barred from a Qantas airlines flight for wearing a T-shirt depicting US President George Bush as a terrorist has threatened legal action. Allen Jasson said he was sticking up for the principle of free speech by challenging the decision by the Australian flag carrier.
Mr Jasson was stopped as he was about to board the flight from Melbourne to London last Friday. Qantas said the T-shirt had potential to offend other passengers. The T-shift features an image of President George W Bush, along with the slogan “World’s Number One Terrorist”.
…A Qantas spokesman defended the airline’s decision, saying: “Whether made verbally or on a T-shirt, comments with the potential to offend other customers or threaten the security of a Qantas group aircraft will not be tolerated”.
