Explosives from Yemen to US: bogus!

I posted this to npr about the lead story today on all things considered:

The mailings are obviously suspect for being an effort at political disinformation and propaganda, timed just before the election. What genuine serious terrorist would try to send exploding packages to US Jews from so obvious a place of origin as the latest scapegoat for terrorism, Yemen. These packages were apparently meant to be found, don't you think? From a perhaps gullible White House to the CIA to Mossad in Israel, this looks to me like a crude black op.

  1. Manipulation from the administration for unpredictable pre-election advantage, is that your suggestion? I think your suggestion is unlikely.
