The October Surprise That Wasn’t: The Fort Dix Six

Email Email Print

The editors at Tthe have a fine piece up on the Fort Dix six that includes this:

Remember the indignation of the Left and civil-liberties extremists at John Ashcroft’s post-9/11 suggestion that ordinary citizens be vigilant and report suspicious behavior to law enforcement? When the alleged jihadists, having recorded one of their paramilitary training sessions, foolishly took the DVD to a store for copying, a store employee became alarmed and notified the FBI. Without the tip, the jihadists might well have gone undiscovered.

To which I’d like to add some other memories: The charges that the Administration has repeatedly used news related to the war and terrorism to sacre the electorate or manipulate voting.  Here’s one such insinuation from Kevin Drum in 2004, but the list is long.

Given the left’s certainty about BushCo’s tactics, I wonder if they are wondering why Rove didn’t have the arrests timed for last October?
