This story, about a captured al Qaeda operative who is claiming responsibility (credit) for the plane than crashed and killed 265 people in Queeens in Noc. 2001, sounds like a perverse attention-grabbing opportuntiy (do you still get the 72 virgins if you lie about your feats? can you fool the virgins?). But, man, I’ll never forget what we all believed happened that day. You could have heard a pin drop in NYC. That’s overly dramatic, of course–though NYC was like that at times after 9/11 (something no one in NY this week will ever believe)–but not that far off. It was the other shoe, for a few hours.
Of course, the other shoe hasn’t dropped, and, not to be a shill, but there are reasons for that beyond enemy incompetance. Please make that case, RNC, this week. Please.
