Keith Olbermann Denounces Arrest of Fort Dix Terrorists
The delusional psychos at HuffPo — some of whom think the arrest of six Muslims for planning to kill soldiers at Fort Dix was actually staged by President Bush — have gotten some backing from MSNBC, whose talking headcase Keith Olbermann denounced the arrest of the terrorists in an incoherent rant that suggests either the whole thing was faked, or else it doesn't matter because the terrorists are "morons."
A few lowlights:
The FBI claims it has broken up a plot to attack Fort Dix in New Jersey. […] The details of the supposed plot don't seem to hold together that well […] though that did not stop extensive and entirely credulous coverage on TV, the Internet, in print today. […][T]he FBI has arrested six morons.
Once again, Olbermann has managed to wedge his pointy head into a tinfoil hat several sizes too small, cutting off the flow of oxygen to whatever serves him as a brain. Does he really think the FBI may have made the whole thing up at the behest of W, but everyone in the media is too "credulous" to suspect it but him? As for dismissing the seriousness of the plot because the plotters are morons, Olbermann Watch has an apt response:
Keith conveniently ignores that just a few weeks ago there was a deranged "moron" who, acting alone, killed over 30 people with just two handguns. Zacharrias Moussoui was caught before he could carry out the 9/11 attacks because he was such a "moron" that he told flight instructors he only wanted to learn how to take off — yet 19 other "morons" killed close to 3,000 people. The 1993 World Trade Center bombers were such "morons" that one of them went back to the Ryder rental office to claim his deposit on the truck used to blow up the Tower One parking garage — after they had killed six people and injured over 1,000. A border patrol agent prevented the Millennium Plot because one of these "morons" was caught with a cache of explosives in the trunk of his car. A transatlantic flight did not explode over the ocean because Richard Reid was such a "moron" that he was unable to light the fuse for the bomb in his shoe before being tackled by an alert passenger and a flight attendant.
Not to mention Olbie himself, who is either a moron or a paranoid schizophrenic, but who is able to inflict damage on this country by encouraging the bizarre delusions of nutroots moonbats.

I doubt that the "morons" would have shot it out on fort Dix because, you know, solders had GUNS! It's more likely that they would have shot up a local school then drove through town shooting at anything that struck their MORONIC fancy.

Van, a sick story via a comment at LGF.

KHarn, that subject has already been covered in another thread. The soldiers do not walk around armed, most of the guns are stored in the armory. And security is not as tight as it should be there. Where I live there was an Army Reserve post where there were soldiers in uniform walking around without guns and the main gate was open - the guard had a side arm, but all you needed to do was take him out, walk in and start shooting. I guess they figure no one would be crazy enough to attack a military post. Hopefully now there will be a top to bottom review of security at all bases and a real tragedy can be avoided.

Olbermann is such a non-entity.
His numbers on his pathetic little show on the equally pathetic MSNBC are statistically insignificant.
That's why I get so tired of of conservative web sites frequently featuring stories about this dolt, in an effort to point out just how stupid and outrageous he is.
We don't need to do that. That he is stupid and outrageous and perhaps even a little mentally unstable is a given. Were it not for the conservative sites, the former "boring as hell" sportscaster, would have the same name recognition as the average individual on the witness protection program.

>>>KHarn, that subject has already been covered in another thread.
I know, but I read the articals from the latest to the earliest and read this one first.
PS: I served in the USAF in the seventies, but I can't see these a**holes going up against ANY servicemen and women since there would be patrols of MPs and armed troops going to and from their stations.
