Right after they announce a congressional hearing into the wiretapping something scary happens. How convenient.

Someone must have farted.
 
2006-02-08 08:11:59 PM  
Oh, shiat.
PS: Please do not try to claim that we could have prevented this with the wiretapping-the wiretapping never stopped. Consider yourself pre-empted, trolls.
 
2006-02-08 08:12:10 PM  
Not a big deal - is negative?
 
2006-02-08 08:12:26 PM  
Folks, you are watching a prime example of media horseshiat.

Watch all the 'faulty detector' followup stories you'll read in the near future.

CNN, you can mellow on the freakout coverage. Assholes.

I fail to see how any terrorist attack could be seen as a reason to continue the wiretapping. Clearly, it didn't stop the attack.

I hope everyone is okay, it must be so scary to be quarantined. Although I don't see anything in TFA to indicate that someone was quarantined.

Sorta like how the Terror Alert Level (AKA Security by Crayola) hasn't been raised since November of 2004?

Using terrorism to scare off dissent...it's the American Way!

If all people in this country had electronic collars with GPS systems that zapped you when ever you did something potentially illegal then this would have been prevented.
 
2006-02-08 08:14:11 PM  
I blame the media
 
2006-02-08 08:14:22 PM  
It's somewhat discouraging that there weren't any Senators that were put at risk by this. I wonder how much time they actually spend in the office.
 
2006-02-08 08:14:25 PM  
Maybe it's the ashes of the Danish flags the Muslims have been burning, who knows?

I bet it gets blamed on Iran.

How can you tell a Deloran just drove down the road?

The white lines are gone!

2006-02-08 08:14:38 PM  
yeah, whatever. gonna be a false alarm. who the hell cares. huge scares, false positives, homeland security in its current form is a bunch of bullshiat.
 
2006-02-08 08:14:39 PM  
Que someone saying: This is serious folks! Watch what you say!" in 3..2...1

That said...let's hope it is something that is highly contagious, mostly fatal and fast acting...that way it will take out the localized area quickly while minimizing the risk of spread to humans we care about (i.e non-politicians and their lobbyist masters)

Lets just hope the battery died in the detector, or maybe it was Taco Bell day on Capitol Hill today...

Don't be ridiculous, it's to distract us from the unfolding Rolling Stones censorship case.

Whew! That was a close one!

See my quote. When that poor schmo in the Cessna buzzed Washington, they raised it to orange and then red for eight minutes. Without telling you at the time.

Good think the 2001 anthrax terrorist was promptly hunted down, caught and thrown in jail.

looking for a close tag somewhere, must have left it in my other pants....
 
2006-02-08 08:16:13 PM  
Someone burned toast and now the media is crawlling all over it. If there was really a nerve agent or at least a weaponized nerve agent, there wouldn't be any failed tests.

BunkoSquad: Good think the 2001 anthrax terrorist...

I'm so panicked I can't spell.

FishyFred, i wasn't saying that- i just thought it weird that the two announcements happened so close together. you know, fearmungrin stuff.

and Weasel, yea, maybe. ;) at any rate, it's apparently not a story any more.

meh, couldn't have been too big, no sirens and helicopters overhead.

I'M still at work, lazy ass mo-fos!

False alarm. 2nd tests came back negative.

Are we really surprised? Gee... just as all the shiat is about to hit the fan for Bush & the GOP, the "TERRORISTS" pop out and force the evacuation of the senate building. Am I just being cynical by thinking that this was just a way to scare the senators into giving Bush unlimited power to fight the 'terrorists'?

OMG!! What are you doing?? Get outta there!! go go!! AAAA
 
2006-02-08 08:18:23 PM  
I'll go ahead and say it...I BLAME BUSH!!!

And to make this completely bipartisan...I BLAME CLINTON!!!

Hopefully, though, this is just as fark up and that no nerve agent is in there.

Gosling: When that poor schmo in the Cessna buzzed Washington, they raised it to orange and then red for eight minutes. Without telling you at the time.

And they raised it to Mauve (or what-the-fark-ever it is) for NYC, based on pre-9/11 intelligence. There has never been one single, solitary threat that has been borne out to be actual.

It's smoke and mirrors. Do you really think that our Homeland Security "policy" is based on Mr. Rogers' freakin' traffic light?!?

WE'VE TRACED THE CALL. IT'S COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!

terrorists in the attic... good band name.
