A Newspaper's responsibility
to Protect Its Readers

Who does Al Qaeda want most to kill? Sure they would
like to get us all; Phoenicians., Las Vegans, Alaskans and
people who live in Beverly Hills 90210 but to date their numero
uno targets have been the poor souls who reside in the Big Apple,
New York, New York USA. New York is the world's financial
sector and is our largest, most visible target city. Middle
East terrorists have attacked the World Trade Center Twice
and they have designs on the UN Building, the New York Bridges
and tunnels and they have said that they want to blow up New
What can we do to protect ourselves and our New York friends
and neighbors? George Bush was elected by the people of
this country to make most of the choices when it comes
to defense (see US Constitution ratified 1789) and he thinks
we need to tap the phones of terrorists and those who speak with
them. He also advocates monitoring FROM THE OUTSIDE, sites
with connections and possible connections to radical Muslim terrorists.
The current program sniffs the air around Muslim sites that have
been visited by people connected to terrorists. It's a
lot like the planes that fly over farm country sniffing for marijuana
plants ... no warrants required. Warrants take time to
secure. Fighting murdering terrorists, according to our
President, must happen real time and fast.
The New York Times prides itself in being a kind of national
liberal mouthpiece ... anti-Republican, against everything Conservative,
counter Red State, un-Texan and especially fighting against anything
undertaken by George W. Bush. There can be no argument
with that statement. Recently the New York Times disclosed
national top secret information about how our government tracks
terrorists. They revealed how we sniff for nuclear material
from helicopters so now the terrorists can shield dirty bombs
better. They revealed how our NSA tracks terrorist phone
calls so the terrorists can perfect their cell phone use.
OK, so the New York Times only meant to embarrass Republicans
and shame the President during Patriot Act re-consideration time
but they did break the laws of our nation. They did aid
and abet the madmen terrorist suicide bombers trying to
kill us. They for certain harmed our defense and they impaired
the safety of New Yorkers especially.
Who buys the New York Times newspapers mostly anyway? Who
buys classified ads in their paper? Who advertises for
new employees there and who gets the New York Times delivered to
their high rise doorsteps every morning? Don't the residents
of New York realize that their largest newspaper, top circulation,
most ad inches, etc, is endangering their lives and their children's
lives? The kind of bomb Al Qaeda has in mind for the "Big
Apple" would make New Orleans' recent problems look like
a walk in Central Park! Any other part of the US would
react strongly against these ... is the word "traitors"
too powerful, in a pardon the expression, "New York minute".
Their own favorite newspaper is likely to get them slaughtered
to make a political point!
Wake up New Yorkers before it is too late! Al Qaeda is
gunning for you and your New York Times is virtually carrying
their bombs for them.
