How pathetic were the Miami Seven? So pathetic, they asked the Bush administration for help and got it!

The Bush administration isn't against all forms of welfare, just welfare for the poor.

For example, the Bush administration isn't against corporate welfare. Pres. Bush signed the order that allowed Enron to fleece California during the energy shortage a few yeras ago.

And, the Bush administration even believes in helping a group of inept guys "appear to be terrorist" has its benefits. After all, a terrorist arrest or two, every now and then, keeps the terror alert blinking red, the public's wits sharp, and raises Bush's standing the polls. Through the efforts of the Bush administration, 7 wannabes (a/k/a The Miami Seven or the gang that couldn't shoot straight) were coaxed in to the lead role as "home grown terrorist" to be vanquished by administration superheroes. (See, How the world sees the arrest of the gang that couldn’t shoot straight: Tall story of terror a chilling warning… ;The Miami Seven: The gang that couldn’t shoot straight. A Major Terror Ring Or 'Al Qaeda Lite'? )

Amy Goodman got the scoop and the entire pathetic story. Here it is:

"AMY GOODMAN: What about the evidence or lack of evidence that was

MAX RAMEAU: Well, a lot of show has been made about the militaristic boots that they had and the gear and the outfits. Well, it turns out these guys didn't have enough money or enough organization to get these things for themselves. The FBI bought them the boots that we've heard so much about, bought them the military outfits that we’ve heard so much about. If you look at the indictment, the biggest piece of evidence, it seems to me, that they have is that the group may have taken pictures of a bunch of targets in South Florida. But the guys couldn't afford their own cameras, so the federal government bought them the cameras with which they took the pictures. They couldn't get downtown and all the other places by themselves. The federal government rented them the cars that they needed to get downtown in order to take the pictures. So it looks like they really didn't have too much capacity.

In addition, right now the running joke in Liberty City is, you know, in the indictments -- if you read the indictments, the men provided the FBI informant with a list of things they needed in order to blow up these buildings, but in the list they didn't include any explosives or any materials which could be used to make explosives. So now everyone in Liberty City is joking that the guys were going to kick down the FBI building with their new boots, because they didn't have any devices which could have been used to explode, so this really, really looks pretty thin."

The entire charade is an international embarrassment. It's a shame the Presidency has been brought this low.
