To John Edwards: This Stuff Is Just A Bumpersticker

Germany: Terror Plot Targeted U.S. Base
AP--By David McHugh

Three suspected Islamic militants were arrested for allegedly plotting "imminent" and "massive" attacks on the Ramstein Air Base, a major U.S. and NATO military hub, and Frankfurt's busy international airport, German authorities said Wednesday.

German federal prosecutor Monika Harms said the three had trained at terror camps in Pakistan and procured some 1,500 pounds of hydrogen peroxide for making explosives. And a top legislator said the group could have struck "in a few days," noting a "sensitive period" that includes the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Officials said the hydrogen peroxide, stored in a hideout, could have been mixed with other additives to produce a bomb with the explosive power of 1,200 pounds of TNT.

"This would have enabled them to make bombs with more explosive power than the ones used in the London and Madrid (transit) bombings," Joerg Ziercke, the head of Germany's Federal Crime Office, said at a joint press conference with Harms.

Have you notived how the Breck Girl and Obama say the most outlandishly stupid things like Edwards withe ''bumper sticker'' comment and Obama's ''lets invade Pakistan'' and pretty much, they're never really called on it and then its on to something else. Like a drunk, who has either made a fool of himself and ruined the party by barfing all over the hostess or worse and then, its on to another booze-up, no regrets, no shame. Amazing. Edwards is an idiot. J'Mac.
