Blogging Tory "Back Off Government" casually rewrites history:
An attempted terrorist attack on an airplane filled with - lo and behold - innocent bystanders. Except that this attack was foiled by passengers taking the initiative and wrestling the terrorist to the ground.
*Sigh*. No, it wasn't. It was "foiled" by the sheer incompetence of the terrorist, who was apparently allowed to carry on enough explosive material to be lethal, and only failed because he didn't detonate it properly.
If you want to debate this issue, fine. But at least have the decency to not invent crap out of thin air to do it. Is that really too much to ask?
Apparently, it is.
