From Wired.com They’ve sent you exploding printer cartridges. Your Christmas present last year was a twenty-something with a bomb in his skivvies. So what’s al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s latest gift of murderous gadgetry? In a department store, they’d call it Eau du Terror.

Perhaps it is bold, perhaps it is foolish, going against a mod on these forums. I am a new member so I am claiming ignorance to justify this post. (I know, the forum's motto is 'Deny Ignorance.') But this seems to just be pandering to the illusion of terror in America. (Not this OP, but the news itself.) I will tell you all right now that I have no fear of Muslims... no fear of "Muslim terrorists".
It seems to me, that this is just another attempt from those who truly threaten our rights, to have us sacrifice them at their feet.
Until "Muslim extremists" start killing average Americans, or at least beating them, in the streets, (Which our own authoritarian forces already do.), I view them as a non-threat and refuse to give up my rights for "protection",
Let's keep in mind the plot of 9/11 is highly disputed, and I have not decided yet whether I believe it was a foreign attack or domestic. Still, I would not consider one act against the world trade center as a threat to myself personally.
I do not care who perpetuated these rumors, these are rumors, and should be treated as such.

Our own freedom is their greatest ally and the very thing they despise.
