War On What The $%&*???
Here's a story that says it all. Or should I say, yet another story...
In the days after 9/11, the FBI sends a letter to British Intelligence advising that Lotfi Raissi, a man suspected of training the 9/11 terrorists, should NOT (black capital letters) be approached or otherwise alerted to government interest in him.
Four days later, British police smash down Raissi's door in the middle of the night and drag him away naked. They also grab his wife and brother.
The Brits hold onto Raissi for five months.
A magistrate then dismisses all charges against him.
So now this guy's career as a flight instructor has been destroyed, his personal reputation is smeared, perhaps forever, months of his life have been lost, and he still can't get an apology from the British government. So what's new in the War On Ahem!?
I mean, come on. If people like this have really done something bad, then prove it to us! If not, apologise to them and stop behaving like a bunch of Keystone Cops on steroids!
