Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

Oregon: hotbed of terrorism. What is up with this? First it's the Portland Seven (none of whom were convicted of terrorism, I hasten to point out), then Brandon Mayfield (who was wrongly charged by a wildly incompetent Jackboot Johnny Ashcroft), and now this:

A radical Muslim cleric linked to Zacarias Moussaoui and shoe bomber Richard Reid was arrested Thursday in London and accused in a U.S. indictment of trying to establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon, U.S. officials said.

The charges allege that he helped al Qaeda volunteers travel from Britain to Afghanistan, of plotting to establish a "violent jihad training camp" in Oregon and of providing a satellite phone to the leader of a 1998 kidnapping in Yemen that resulted in the deaths of four hostages.

This isn't going to look good on the ol' tourism brochure. (And we still have that Tonya Harding and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh thing hanging over our heads.)
