This sounds like some sort of circa-2002 bullcrap — or the worst Bond Villain plot ever — but anyone who read Lawrence Wright’s ‘The Looming Tower’ can fathom this is possible, but not very likely to have been pulled off:

The al Qaeda group that built two toner-cartridge bombs in an unsuccessful attempt to blow up planes in October also has contemplated spreading poison on salad bars and buffets at U.S. hotels and restaurants, U.S. officials told CNN Tuesday.

I imagine this story will set Gretchen Carlson’s little “googlin’ and cipherin’ fingers” afire on Fox & Friends.

Of course, we all know other terrorists groups have already successfully carried out this mission.

Next up, Al Qaeda’s secret plot to poison eggs.

Better get ready to invade another country…



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
