Terrorist Mastermind (4)

Tuesday 1st March 2005

The "terrorist mastermind" has popped up again.

From the BBC story:

It is not entirely clear why the US government has chosen to release such sensitive information, but the Bush administration has sought often to portray Iraq as what it calls the central front in the war on terrorism.

I think it's entirely clear...

There is no news here apart from an unattributable briefing to journalists intended to associate the Iraq resistance to the occupation with Bin Laden.

Meanwhile, Blair claims to know that:

Britain is threatened by several hundred people within its borders who are planning terrorist attacks [...]

Are you frightened enough yet? Probably not, so there will soon be a lot of stuff about how the general election might be disrupted by terrorists.
