Breaking News At Drudge

[See Update 2 below for story quoting unIDed CIA types.]

Matt Drudge is claiming to have information indicating that ABC News is holding on to a tape warning of a huge Terrorist attack that will "dwarf 9/11". ABC apparently claims that the tape has been shown to the CIA and everyone is working to prove its authenticity.

Obviously, there are political implications here...although I suppose they could go either way. The scumbag on the tape apparently says:

America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda.
Such a claim, if authenticated, is not going to make anyone sleep better at night. The question is whether or not the American voters are going to see this threat as providing evidence that George Bush is still needed as President to fight Terror...or...that Bush really has brought this down on us all by fighting Al Qaida and Saddam.

Obviously, there is an answer here that is irrefutable. To arrive at the correct answer all you have to do is ask: What battles did George W. Bush initiate on or prior to September 10th, 2001?

The answer is zero. So, we did not bring 9/11 on ourselves in any sense and, therefore, there is no way to blame Bush. If voters want to blame him for fighting back instead of just rolling over and asking What did we do wrong? I would argue those voters don't deserve to be American Citizens and should immediately leave the country for a destination more in tune with that philosophy (read: Spain).

Either way, I'm sure if there is truth in this report by Drudge it will be all over the news and we'll quickly find out how solid our backbone has remained since that fateful morning just over three years ago.


Michelle's got some good background links. (Not to mention a nice pre-emptive strike against the inevitable anti-racial profiling arguments.)

Update 2:

Apparently the CIA is unable to confirm the authenticity of the tape. Whether or not the tape is authentic, the political ramifications of its existance (and any involvement of a news organization with holding it or not) are still of interest.
