Which is “the federal government’s greatest court victory against terrorism”? According to an article by Debra Erdley in yesterday”s Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, that would be the conviction on April 26, 2005, of Ali al-Timimi.
Ali who? Well yes, with the exception of the Tribune-Review, which followed the Timimi case because of a Pittsburgh angle, the mainstream media stayed resolutely away from the case, with nearly everyone simply reprinting the identical Associated Press dispatch deep inside the newspaper. Television was apparently oblivious to the trial.
Well, of course. Don’t want to Offend Muslims or interrupt the Michael Jackson News, now do we? Anyway, this is not even Pipes’ main point — read his whole article.
