Of all the ludicrous things coming out of President Bush's mouth recently, none may be more absurd than his allegation that some of his critics don't believe that people of color can govern themselves in a democracy.
Of course, he never indicates who has made such a claim. He just throws it out there.
It's especially ironic when you consider the Administration and the media's view that no one is worthy of being called a terrorist unless they have a certain skin color. I remember when this guy was arrested last year. If his first name was Muhammad, it would have been breaking news and the President, the Attorney General, and others would have been all over the place talking about a victory in the war on terror. But because he's just another Tim McVeigh in the making, I guess it wasn't really noteworthy.
I guess we don't want to let people think that the threat from inside the country might be as bad as the one from outside the country.
From the Houston Chronicle:
"An East Texas man who had accumulated a massive amount of cyanide was described as a white supremacist and a student of militia-led revolt.
William Krar is scheduled to be sentenced in a federal court Tuesday after acknowledging that he possessed enough sodium cyanide to fatally gas everyone in a 30,000-square-foot building, such as a civic center or high school basketball arena. But investigators say they still don't know what Krar intended to do with the deadly materials.
Krar's cache of weapons included nine machine guns, three silencers, 67 sticks of explosives, more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition, 800 grams of near-pure sodium cyanide and the acids to turn it into poisonous gas."
