U.S. has terrorists, too

In response to “Port sale a strike,” which noted that “a home country of 9/11 hijackers” may come to control six American ports, I have more disturbing news to report.

Were you aware that the home country of the terrorists who bombed the Murrow Building in Oklahoma City currently controls everything in America from Homeland Security to Social Security?

It’s true. The country that harbored the perpetrators of that horrific attack on the most innocent of Americans is … U.S.

We must act. A logical first step is to regard all U.S. nationals and the government they rode in on as terrorists. And lest anyone argue that the Murrow atrocity was the doing of a handful of violent zealots with radical views, and should not be imputed to all U.S. citizens or their government, I would remind you that a country that has produced such terrorists surely must know of and countenance their activities. Should not that country and its government be held responsible for those activities and treated accordingly?

It will take a long time to pry our institutions out of the hands of terrorists, but perhaps we can start by boycotting U.S. goods.
