  •  Great Diary. I thought about posting something (none)
    when I read the story on CNN.com. What got me was the headline "American charged in alleged plot to assassinate President Bush" versus a line in the VERY SAME ARTICLE: "The indictment offered no evidence that the discussions ever advanced into a plan." Without Kos and the like, I never would have noticed that a few years ago.

    What makes me really sad is how blind people are. I was one of them not too long ago. When Lindh was brought in, I remember saying how he deserved the death penalty. Of course, I'm now ashamed of that kneejerk, go with the mob reaction. (Just as I am that I bought into the WMD argument.) Jesus- I don't even believe in the death penalty!

    The question is, am I one of a few lucky ones that have finally seen the light and refuse to believe everything we read, or am I part of some sort of mass awakening? I really hope it's the latter.
