Let's hear it for our Department of Homeland Security! Another FINE
job from Tom Ridge and the Color-Coded Blackboard...
is what makes me nervous: This incident occurred three to five days ago - that chemical could be anywhere in the Western United States at
this time... or anywhere in the US, for that matter. My question: Do you think they've got Federal agents crawling over (at least) the heavily
inhabited sectors of the Dakotas looking for this stuff?
Of course not. It's an election year. Don't wanna scare the electorate.
So when this stuff does trun up in the wrong hands, THEN
there'll be a terror alert. And the country will vote GW in for four more years,
because Kerry couldn't protect us from the evil.
Pardon my slightly conspiratorial spin, but hey... it COULD
For the people out in the Dakotas, I hope they find this stuff. I also hop ethey improve the regulations involving the sale & movement of potentially
hazardous materials of this type.. I do realize you can't regulate the sale of every damn thing out there that can quickly be converted into a
do-it-yourself WMD, but some things should be fairly easy.
Like having a verifiable address and name on a document as to who and where stuff like this is going... it would be good to know who was driving the
truck hauling it, as well as the driver's route... you know, stuff most HAZMAT drivers HAVE
to have a log for...
Maybe that's just down here in Florida...
God, I hope they find that stuff...
