Right-Wing Paranoia?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:01 pm

Check out this post, which details the efforts of young men, described as being “Middle Eastern,” trying to purchase school buses in various U.S. cities. In each instance, they were turned down. In addition, Federal Officials alerted schools in six states that a computer disc was discovered in Iraq that contained photos, floor plans and other information about their schools.

Connect the dots.

Given that the attempts to buy the school busses took place in 2006, I like to think that this was one of the terrorist plots that was quietly thwarted by the government. However, I know that these folks are determined and very patient. After all, they have been at it for a thousand years or so.

It scares the hell out of me to think that one of these days they’ll succeed.

School buses.

Floor plans of schools.

Think about that.

  1. There’s a book about this out right about now.

  3. As a teacher I think about those things quite often, unfortunately.

  4. Don, are you by any chance referring to John Giduck’s “Terror at Beslan: A Russian Tragedy With Lessons For America’s Schools”? That one is DEFINITELY on my to-read-next list.

  5. Can you blame them for wanting floor plans? What with all the rebuilding of Iraq they are obviously trying to build their own schools.

  6. I agree with your concern…… but the leftwing liberal socialists are wringing their hands & screaming racial profiling.
    It is really a shame that to act in the best interests of this nation & its people is beyond comprehension of the majority of the leaders of the Democratic Party. The ACLU & the main stream media.

  7. Thank you for the link, Jim.
    Two of my podcast guests have speculated on a Beslan-type attack.
