US Election terrorism and postponement

Saturday 10th July 2004

See for instance this story in the Guardian. The statement by Tom Ridge is here.

I mentioned this previously here.

We are already living through a nightmare: it is more than possible that very much worse is to come. Those people who understand what happened on September 11th 2001 will recognise any new outrage for what it is. Unfortunately that is too small a number: others will be willing to accept more war and restrictions on their freedom all too readily.
