Very good article! Of course this is what happened...I'm glad someone else noticed how long it took them (and their lawyers), to come up with the "bring it down" theory.

Subtract the damn moslems
from this situation and voilà!- there's no problem.
In fact, the subtraction of moslems from ANY situation or environment results in a measurable and welcome reduction in the number of stone-age-moron-induced problems.
The potential for improvement, and the means to achieve it, is obvious.

Probability that the three men were terrorists who thought it was a good idea to discuss their plot loudly at a Shoney's restaurant in Calhoun, Ga., the day before an attack - less than 1%.
Stories about terrorists saying to others when something big happens think of me, and the school kid who predicted the fall of the WTC raise the probability a lot higher than 1%.
No one has accused the arabs of being brilliant, just dangerous.

I just mailed this to Larkin:
"Larkin Hospital, Miami, Florida: How on earth can you allow three people who at worst are potential terrorists or sympathizers, almost as bad are blatant liars, or at the very best show a total lack of judgement and concern? These people do not deserve to be schooled in any profession in the United States and certainly not by your hospital. Your attitude is a travesty and a smear on the medical profession. Where are your standards? Your actions answer that question quite clearly." Signed My Name. My City
The Larkin Hospital address is available via the web. Perhaps FREEPERs would like to let the hospital know what we think about their plan not to " under any circumstances allow this to interrupt these men's education to become full practicing physicians."
There are too damned many of them practicing now, paid for by U.S. Tax Dollars, getting a $Million a year as doctors, while our kids can't get close to a med school. I have already written them. Will you at FR join me in protesting this egregious attitude?

At week's end, there were signs that Attorney General John Ashcroft's detractors may cite this case as a horrible example of what would happen if average citizens were recruited to report suspicious activity
If Attorney General John Ashcroft's detractors are successful with this ploy, then we also need to eliminate laws that allow law enforcement to jail idiots who joke about bombs in airports. What's the difference??? Why can't these folks cry "free speech" when THEY get arrested? I'll tell you why, because they are not Moose Limbs or some other revered minority/victim group.

county authorities said the three students, interviewed separately, gave accounts that didn't match.
Bump for great justice.

We shouldn't be afraid that what we say might trigger a reaction from law enforcement."
Try publicly threatening to kill the president. You'll get all kinds of "reaction from law enforcement".
This guy is an idiot.
I read this, this morning and was hoping someone would post it. [I'm too slow at typing replies!!] This is the first time I've heard of the discrepancys [sp?] in the police interviews.
That was never reported while they were on TV telling all their lies, and now it probably won't even get mentioned on TV!!
