Striking Deep

I'm generally no fan of conspiracy theories except for amusement purposes, but there's an old expression, "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you." Similarly, a conspiracy - you know, "An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act" - isn't all that far-fetched if it's real. Thanks to Tom Tomorrow (see left bar) for alerting everyone to this gem from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution outlining a frightening report called "Rebuilding America's Defenses" - which came out a year prior to the WTC/Pentagon terrorist attacks but just in time for our appointed president to take it to heart. You can even download the report in its entirety from the website. You might not want to do so while eating.
