Well, the Terrible Boston Mooninite Terror Dry Run is over, and there's a fair
summary of the reaction from the extremes of the Fightin' 101st Keyboarders
suffice to say they
did not fail those of us who fully expected them to take a pretty much
situation and turn it into wild specualtion about Islamofascists and SEEKRIT
PLOTS and anarchists and all that twaddle.
One thing I don't think I've seen addressed, though, and that's the fact that Boston was
not the only target for this ad campaign; I believe ten cities are involved and Boston was
the only one where a big deal was made over the signs that were installed, TWO WEEKS
after the installation.
Point is, for all the billions dumped into Fatherland Security over the last five years, and the continuing growth of the new American Surveillance State, people were able to move through some of the largest cities in the country, install electronic devices in supposedly sensitive locations, and leave them there for a fortnight. Which brings up questions, in my mind at least, about how "safe" Bush and the Repugs are ACTUALLY keeping us.
