Another Terrorist Plot Uncovered

So apparently we've foiled another terrorist plot. This one may or may not be more credible than last month's Chicago Crazies arrests. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, a Democrat, has praised intelligence gathering efforts for this capture, and this makes me nervous. Without weighing in on the merits, I'd like to point out that for four years following September 11, we never heard a peep. Not one story of a foiled terrorist plot, no names, no locations, nothing. Now, when Bush's domestic spying program has been revealed to the American people, we've gotten two highly publicized terror arrests in as many months, complete with specific plans, details on the method of infiltration and capture, the whole nine yards. The first one was pretty obviously trumped up, and I'm willing to bet this one won't turn out to be much more credible. We shall see; more as it develops.
