Did anybody else notice this? In the indictment of the guys arrested yesterday for allegedly trying to bomb synagogues in NYC, the first count is that they
did combine, conspire, confederate and agree together and with each other to use a weapon of mass destruction, to wit, a surface-to-air guided missile system and an improvised explosive device (“IED”) containing over 30 pounds of Composition 4 (‘C-4″) military grade plastic explosive material against persons and property within the United States.
Since when is a Stinger a “weapon of mass destruction”? It’s bad enough that the term, which strictly applies only to nuclear weapons since they “destroy mass”, has been extended in the vernacular to include chemical and biological weapons; now they’re using it to apply to routine plastic explosives like C4? Is this some bizarre way of trying to prove that Saddam had WMD after all? Doesn’t this imply the US has used WMD millions of times in the past 8 years? To paraphrase Amy Winehouse, what kind of, uh, ignorant nonsense is this?
