tweaking our meds

Gawd, even the guy from the Economist guest-blogging at Crooked Timber (“generally a hawk on terrorism, not least as a consequence of being in NY on 9/11”) thinks this smells a bit funny.

If they have been tracking the current plot for some time, surely they could have phased in changes in check-in and pre-screening earlier, in ways that avoided the massive disruption to flights we have seen today. I find myself wondering if today’s disruption is deliberate, to send a message – though to whom, and what it is, I’m not sure.

Gotta love those last words there. MSM. LOL. Do you really think he’d get fired if he finished the sentence with “to keep everyone scared enough of a phantom threat to keep all the other bullshit going down”?

More from Lenin’s Tomb…

Update: Sploid has a nice post with a boatload of snark n’ links...
