Terror's Muse

Add "inspired terrorism" to the long list of consequences of the government's abysmal handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

Not related to J.P. Morgan, Goldman or Sachs, apparently

The New York Daily News published an exclusive yesterday about a foiled plot to bomb the Holland Tunnel that had all the cable news channels buzzing. The plan was to bomb the tunnel and flood downtown Manhattan and the alleged inspiration was not our precious and intolerable freedoms, but our demonstrated inability to deal with flooding.

According to a Daily News analysis, the plan wouldn't have worked because the Holland Tunnel is not in the Hudson River, but embedded in the bedrock below it, and lower Manhattan is ten feet above sea level at its lowest point.

They may be right, but the plan would have failed for a more important reason. Wall St. demographics skew away from Democrats and black people, so there's no way the Bush administration would have left them to rot. Too many Arabian horse lovers, for starters.
