NY Times: Loose Nukes Echo Chamber

The tempo of apocalyptic fear-mongering has kicked into overdrive: the MSM is literally awash with portentious articles of new terror attacks involving loose nukes.

Let's be very clear about this: the 9/11 drug is wearing off, the wheels are coming off that lie, and they're hustling "the next big thing" to market as fast as they can. These madmen are doubling down on terror, just as they're about to do the same with Iraq.

I can barely keep up with the sowing-the-ground articles, and I focus almost exclusively on the top tier NYT, WaPo & BBC--and THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING.

The NY Times' second "we're-gonna-get-nuked-soon" article this week, via the Huffington Post, behind the NYT firewall:

"Frank Rich: Experts Warn Al Qaeda "To Detonate Nuclear Device" In US, But Bush Punts on Threat."

In an op-ed in the New York Times, columnist Frank Rich argues that
over five years after the events of September 11, 2001, President George
W. Bush is still ignoring serious terrorist threats to the United
States. Faced with warnings from terrorism experts and a White House
seemingly more focused on Iraq, Rich begs readers to ask, "Haven't we
been here before?"

Yes Frank, on the same pages just this past Sunday in fact. And that's what really scares the Hell out of me.
