Propaganda and Terrorism: Brought to you by the DEA (again)

A picture named deaexhib.jpg
This was a sick, disgusting, and offensive exhibit when the DEA opened it last September in Dallas.

“We worked closely with the New York Police Department and the Port Authority to go to Ground Zero and the Fresh Kills landfill for artifacts,” Mr. Fearns said. “That’s where the exhibit starts, with this reconstruction of elements from New York and the Pentagon and photos from Pennsylvania.”

That’s right. Children’s toys and twisted I-beams. Death and destruction to glorify the DEA.

Read the rest of my original post from last year.
Now, the exhibit opened today at 1 Times Square in New York City. Today. Sick.
A reminder:

While Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida minions were diligently preparing for their murderous mission, the FBI was looking the other way with equal determination. More than twice as many FBI agents were assigned to fighting drugs (2,500) than fighting terrorism (1,151). And a far greater amount of the FBI’s financial resources was dedicated to the war on drugs….

In Phoenix, where the now infamous Ken Williams memo originated, counterterrorism agents complained bitterly about their efforts being given “the lowest investigative priority” by a supervisor who preferred glamorous drug-fighting investigations.

And yes, the DEA was part of the problem. A federal police force aimed at its own citizens instead of focusing resources at protecting the nation.
For them to open Target America: Drug Traffickers, Terrorists and You in Times Square on September 10th is reprehensible.

[thanks to Baylen, I think, for getting me pissed off again]
