Xymphora, "Yemen Printer Cartridge Hoax",

You might note the very odd 'it is understood' language in a lot of the stories on this matter, indicating that the source for the details is lying. Of course, the headlines and the opening paragraphs reveal none of this doubt.

If the Friday before the 2006 mid-term election in which he knew his party was going to suffer significant losses George Bush had announced a UPS plane from Yemen had been intercepted and found full of explosives the boy typing this would have hollared MOTHERFUCKING BULLSHIT! and so would you if you were wearing Democratic colors in 2006. Just saying.

From Al Jazeera:

Yemeni security forces have arrested a 20-year-old female student in Sanaa, the country's capital, on suspicion of sending explosives stuffed in printer cartridges on cargo planes bound for the US. The packages, which were addressed to synagogues in Chicago, were discovered early on Friday in London and Dubai. The discoveries have put global air security on high alert. Bernard Smith reports.

It's a miracle! And right before the election too. Who could have thunk such a thing? But I'm sure Obama wouldn't pull the wool over our eyes because he is a democrat and democrats are gooder. But if he did, it's okay because he is black so all the bases are covered.

Hey, I noticed you discussed this too.

(And no, of course he wouldn't. It would be wrong.)
