US - New York Times plays flipper

Just like John Kerry.

The New York Times revealed, over government objections, a secret and legal operation to catch terrorists. This is the very program this same New York Times called for in the days just after 9/11. Here is what the Times called for back in September 2001.

Organizing 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.

Which is exactly what we were doing until the New York Times, in an effort to boost sagging sales, exposed the secret operation.

People should boycott the New York Times.
