To Save the Falcons

In testimony before the Sept. 11 Commission, the former White House counterterrorism analyst, Richard Clarke, said that in the 1990s the United States had planned to bomb a falconry camp in Pakistan when Osama bin Laden was present. The raid, Clarke said, was scrubbed because a minister from the United Arab Emirates was a member of the hunting party.

Why rush when nations like Iraq can be destroyed and hundreds of thousands of its citizens killed, at some later date. Its their fault anyway. Had they been able to afford a $100000 falcon and thus be deemed qualified for membership to the hunting party, they wouldn’t have been shocked and awed to smithereenes? And by the way, New Tabouk is not for just anybody. So don’t even dream.
