Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 14, 2003 10:47 AM I saw this story this morning about how the current terror alert was partly based on information from a prisoner that has turned out to be false. Initially, I was just surprised that the alert was based on any information at all, except for perhaps a vision John Ashcroft received while ritually flagellating himself in the head with a ball-peen hammer. Nevertheless, it's reassuring that this latest plot turned out to be a figment of a prisoner's imagination. At least, it was reassuring until I read how the FBI determined it was false: the informant failed a polygraph test.

Look, with all the budget cuts maybe we can save the DHS some money by replacing their polygraphs with Ouija boards. Cheaper, and equally effective! Or maybe they could hire an astrologer. (I guess Reagan already tried that.)

We're doomed. Tags:
