We have long excoriated the dhimmis at the New Duranty Times, aka the New York Times, for following in the footsteps of their illustrious Pulitzer-winning reporter Walter Duranty, who lied about the Ukrainian famine to please his master Stalin. Now the New Duranty Times has been likewise ignoring the Islamic jihad, and generally peddling the Leftist line that global terrorism is a reaction to U.S. atrocities.
Of course, with their latest bid to aid the global jihad, the Times may have finally gone too far, but in any case, Sweetness and Light (thanks to LGF) has found a post-9/11 editorial from the Durantys calling on the Bush Administration to do exactly what it now condemns it for doing. Any port in a storm, eh Pinch?
rganizing the hijacking of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon took significant sums of money. The cost of these plots suggests that putting Osama bin Laden and other international terrorists out of business will require more than diplomatic coalitions and military action. Washington and its allies must also disable the financial networks used by terrorists.
The Bush administration is preparing new laws to help track terrorists through their money-laundering activity and is readying an executive order freezing the assets of known terrorists. Much more is needed, including stricter regulations, the recruitment of specialized investigators and greater cooperation with foreign banking authorities. There must also must be closer coordination among America’s law enforcement, national security and financial regulatory agencies.
