I Smell A Rat

Found this under the hood of my car.
Oh, wait. It’s just Saad Khalid, one of the Toronto 18 terrorism conspirators. His line reported in the Globe and Mail this week was outstanding:

“I am not a lunatic who is hell bent on destruction of Western civilization.”

Of course you weren’t, Mr. Khalid. Your little group’s alleged targets were much more modest than all of Western civilization:

The group was allegedly preparing for a large-scale terrorist attack in southern Ontario, which included detonating truck bombs at least two locations in Southern Ontario and opening fire in a crowded area. Police alleged they also made plans to storm various buildings such as the Canadian Broadcasting Centre and the Canadian Parliament building, and take hostages. According to one of the suspect’s lawyers, they have been accused of planning to “behead the Prime Minister”, Stephen Harper, and other leaders.

Law enforcement authorities have identified other specific targets, including the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Parliamentary Buildings’ Peace Tower.

Not a lunatic? Suit yourself.

    I had a dead bird in the cold air intake of my Jeep Commander. The guy flushing my transmission found it. I felt bad at first, but since I had no idea it was there….

    To be honest, I think most of the Toronto 16 can be safely described as naive dupes. Saad Khalid, however, not so much.
