Two Things...

1.) Been wondering (OK, more like self amused) for well over a week now, as to why The Media doesn't refer to the two Boston bombing suspects from The Caucasus as... Caucasians?*

2.) Why is it that the FBI and their related law enforcement agencies are so great at entrapping and busting witless, gullible chumps with dummy bombs and even dumber terrorism plots they themselves help choreograph- and so raggedy-ass awful at preventing real terrorism plots even when they've been warned, often repeatedly, by their fellow intelligence agencies, both foreign and domestic?

*I remember reading quite some years back (in a Nat Geo if memory serves) that ethnic people from the Caucasus (ie- Chechnyans) referred to themselves as "Black" and that they were the target of discrimination from lighter skinned Russians. Remember shaking my head and thinking to myself...ain't that some shit!

Have you ever seen the film Four Lions, Stan?

Because if they get too good their funding gets cut. Gotta let some really bad shit to happen to insure the money river keeps flowing.

No doubt, and the fact that real prevention requires hard, tedious work and inter agency cooperation. Much easier to look busy and productive making shit up.

Colin- never heard of it. Don't think it made the rounds here- but definitely sounds worthwhile!

Hope I can get in on Netflix- Thanks for the tip...
