Al Qaeda Plot Discovered!

New Terrorist Update: Imminent Plot to Kidnap President Reagan!
A pre-dawn raid of a secluded Al Qaeda training center in Iraq yesterday netted what Homeland Security experts are calling "the freshest terrorist information we have seen to date." The information shows that Al Qaeda has recently developed an intricate plan for kidnapping President Reagan while meeting with foreign leaders at Camp David, Maryland. The plan is said to contain alarmingly detailed information regarding structures, schedules, routes, personnel, security systems, and so forth, even including such details as the brand of toilet paper used at Camp David. "Their level of preparation is far beyond anything we anticipated, though we are completely ready to deal with this," said Tom Bridge, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. "While the enemy threat should enough to scare most people senseless," Bridge said, "the American people will be safe as long as stay the course and keep George Bush in office." . . .

The "Terrorism" Trump Card Raises Its Ugly Head

In today's New York Times, we learn of some serious human rights abuse:
A group of villagers from Myanmar, formerly Burma, charge that when a gas pipeline was built in their region, they were subjected to forced labor—and that the American corporation Unocal played a role in their mistreatment (an accusation that Unocal denies).
But . . .
The Bush administration has asked an 11-judge panel to block it, arguing that it interferes unduly with foreign policy. . . .The Bush administration argues that permitting the Myanmar villagers to sue will interfere with American foreign policy, including the war on terrorism.
Evidently, we can remove Saddam because of his human rights abuses (the new argument, since there are no WMDs), but an American corporation is free to abuse others without even the annoyance of an suit brought against them.
