The Nation - Far Left of the Mark
I hate to claim prescience (see yesterday's post), but look what Robert Dreyfuss, contributing editor of The Nation had to say about the Times Square attempted bombing:
It may be that the Pakistan-based Taliban, the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP), has quietly established a Connecticut franchise while we weren't looking. That's possible. But it seems far more likely to me that the perpetrator of the bungled Times Square bomb plot was either a lone nut job or a member of some squirrely branch of the Tea Party, anti-government far right. Which actually exists in Connecticut, where, it seems, the car's license plates were stolen.
You can read the whole "squirrely" piece by Dreyfuss here.
As more and more information about the "suspect" and his ties to Radical Islam comes to light, don't look for Robert Dreyfuss to apologize to the Tea Party Patriots for casting aspersions on them by his premature prognostications.
