Asscroft 3: Terra in 3-D

More holes in DJ Asscroft's Terror warning are exposed today, as two of the seven terrorists he named are already in prison.

A respected website that holds databases on terror suspects lists Amer El-Maati as 'incarcerated'.

Likewise, Aafia Siddiqui, a female former MIT student, was arrested in Pakistan over a year ago, according to NBC.

The 'cell' that these individuals are said to belong to doesn't even exist. The Abu Hafs al Masri group was described by the Boston Globe as a 'phantom organization'. Their researchers could find no evidence that the group was real.

This latest false hysteria is just one in a >long line of fake terror alerts. Was this last attempt so pathetic that the color code wasn't even needed? Or perhaps Asscroft knew two of his announced suspects were already imprisoned, so that he could claim at a later date that he foiled an impending attack? Since 9/11, The Bush Administration has exploited anxiety and carefully cultivated an economy of fear in America.
