My fellow Wacther’s Council member Dymphna at Gates of Vienna has news about a truck driving school in Kansas City seeing a wave of Somalis all of a sudden taking driving lessons:
In a way, trucks are of more concern than planes. They are ubiquitous, a commonplace in our everyday landscape. They pass us all the time on the highway and we don’t even notice. An 18 wheeler loaded surreptitiously with something explosively unstable could be a nightmare beyond the wildest imaginings of whatever concerns Dubai Ports raised.
And in case anyone has forgotten Somalia, it is the place America was defeated by timid actions initiated by the Clinton administration.Â A defeat memorialized in the film Black Hawk Down, and the event that led Osama Bin Laden to believe he could chase a feckled and weak America into hiding behind her borders. Especially since we know believe Bin Laden was behind those attacks as well.
