According to this story on CNN, Colin Powell is “not a happy camper” about the fact that someone lied about the levels of terrorist activity. Originally, they claimed that terrorism was on the decline, which would imply that the ludicrous “war on terror” is somehow being effective.
The fact is, however, that “figures from a corrected report ‘will be up sharply,'” according to State Department spokesman Richard Boucher.
Does anyone else see this as further evidence that this ridiculous “war on terror” is only exacerbating the situation? This is not difficult, folks. I wrote about this in November, 2001. I am far from an expert, but this just seems obvious to me.
