To Sarah Good, the first victim of the Salem Witchcraft Trials, Y1692

"An American citizen of Pakistani descent named Timothy McVey apparently pissed off by the WacoTX live burning of 80 Branch Davidians and also with the indiscriminant drone killing of the Pakistani people had planted a self-made bomb on the NY Times Square. The bomb did not explode and Mr. McVey was quickly apprehended. He confessed that he was trained by Al- Qaeda. Senator Lieberman from CT is introducing a new Bill making it possible to take away the US citizenship in administrative order upon suspicion of a person being collaborative with terrorists"

Anything wrong with this paragraph above? Ah, yes, the actual person's name was Faisal Shahzad and he did not care for Branch Davidians. He did not kill 160 people, though. Timothy McVey did. In the balance of killing and subsequent retributions we can start with 80 Branch Davidians, go to 160 in Oklahoma City, slide to 3000 on 9/11, leap to a million or so in Iraq and Afghanistan, make a U- turn at about 8000 coalition official casualties in two wars, get over a small bump of drone killings under enlightened Obama and land on ZERO on the NY Times Square. That's where Senator Lieberman suddenly emerges like that little Devil from the snuffbox and proposes a "convenience Bill'- the way to take away the citizenship administratively, proclaim a person a witch.

Oh, yes. In the Medieval Europe and in Salem as soon as a person was accused of witchcraft (!) the property of such person was confiscated and sold at auction effectively rendering that person non- existent. That was, of course, practiced by Soviet government when people were seized en-masse and by Hitler's government when it gassed the numerous ethnic brothers of Senator Lieberman. He of all people should know about the Wanzee decision in 1943 when all the Jews in Germany and occupied territories were officially proclaimed not the subjects of any judicial system anymore but the subjects of only Gestapo, thus losing even the ephemeral citizenship of theirs. Mr. Lieberman, say hello to your spiritual predecessor, the one Ernst Kaltenbrunner.

So why did I write that paragraph above? Because if the name of the Times Square terrorist was in fact Timothy McVey, Mr. Lieberman, I am sure would have said nothing. Vultures like him only attack the weak. Look at the BP catastrophe- where is the distinguished senator from CT? He is nowhere to be seen. As corporations are citizens, why does not he ask to take away the BPs citizenship? Where is his crusader's banner? Or maybe he is like those miserable vultures in Salem who cleverly had chosen Sarah Good, a poor and not very likable person as their first victim? Of course, they could tell those hysterical children to point at anyone. But they figured out the witch to be the one whom other people most likely would not defend.

That's the key. Faisal Shahzad is the US citizen but he is not likable and not an " Arizonian' like Sarah Palin claims to be. We do not like him. He is a Pakistani with vengeance and he (even MSNBC uses this stupid jargon) "sings like a canary'. I wonder, what songs would senator Lieberman sing of he is "professionally interrogated'? And suddenly, like in the case of Sarah Good ( and boy, she actually never confessed, imagine that) we hear the most horrible stories of some devilish Al- Qaeda plan to make a superbly sloppy job, leave the keys in the car and make himself caught. What a witch, I tell you! The Court of Owen and Terminus, ahoy! Stalin's Politburo would be proud. What a style, what a great progress, people. And here, in this country, under the electric lights and under the reign of the Lady Liberty not even one normal citizen stands up and says:

-As there never were any witches, there is no Al- Qaeda. We know that for sure not only because its existence was proclaimed by two damned liars- Bush and Cheney but also because in the Y2001 many European secret services denounced its very existence. If there was any Times Square plot, it stinks as a rat from many miles away. Same with the previous underwear bomber. Those are classic provocations, the secret police helping itself, the same as in the Stalin's dungeons a person was accused of intentions to kill Stalin in that person's city of residence "if Stalin visits that city.' This stupid, unprofessional bacchanalia is a disgusting shame. We should try to find who benefits from it and start with the vultures like Lieberman.'
