Still No Terrorism Since 9/11

None here. And none here. And none here. And none here. Nor here or here. Nor here or here. Or here, either.

And certainly none here:
Baboucarr Njie was preparing for his prayer session Friday night, Sept. 26, when he heard children in the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton coughing. Soon, Njie himself was overcome with fits of coughing and, like the rest of those in the building, headed for the doors.

"I would stay outside for a minute, then go back in, there were a lot of kids," Njie said. "My throat is still itchy, I need to get some milk."

Njie was one of several affected when a suspected chemical irritant was sprayed into the mosque at 26 Josie St., bringing Dayton police, fire and hazardous material personnel to the building at 9:48 p.m.
This, at the end of a week in which Muslims celebrated Ramadan and in which "thousands of copies of Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West—the fear-mongering, anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail—were distributed by mail in Ohio," bearing, by the way, "the endorsement of the chair of the counter-terrorism department of the U.S. Naval War College."

There has been terrorism in the United States since 9/11, no matter what the Bush administration says, no matter what John McCain says, no matter what the Republican Party says. It's just that the people terrorized aren't people they give a shit about.

I don't even know what else to say. Blub.
