The Bush men's scheme to conquer the world, starting with Iraq, is dead in the water, having been thwarted by the Iraqi resistance. However, the domestic component of the offensive continues to roll up a body count of hapless "terror" suspects who, in fact, have hatched no real "plots" nor have any capability of carrying out actual attacks. Entrapment and sting operations, utilizing criminals as agent provocateurs, are designed to make the U.S. a "State of Fear." True to historical form, the feds ensnare the "usual suspects" - Blacks and Muslims - while leaving Timothy McVeigh's white conspiratorial brethren free to pursue their murderous missions.
