Poor Roslynn

Everyone down at the office is gonna be teasing her about this forevah. Newsday (06.06.07), via Eschaton:
"When U.S. Attorney Roslynn Mauskopf described the alleged terror plot to blow up Kennedy Airport as 'one of the most chilling plots imaginable,' which might have caused 'unthinkable' devastation, one law enforcement official said he cringed.

The plot, he knew, was never operational. The public had never been at risk. And the notion of blowing up the airport, let alone the borough of Queens, by exploding a fuel tank was in all likelihood a technical impossibility.

Credibility of JFK terror case questioned

"And now, with a portrait emerging of alleged mastermind Russell Defreitas as hapless and episodically homeless, and of co-conspirator Abdel Nur as a drug addict, Mauskopf's initial characterizations seem more questionable -- some go so far as to say hyped.

"'I think her comments were over the top,' said Michael Greenberger, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland."

Just a little maybe.

Quit being such pansy-ass pussies, sez the Mayor. WCBS (06.05.07), via TPM:

"On Monday, [New York City's Mayor Mike Bloomberg] finally weighed in [on the JFK plot to end all plots], but his response was not what some would have expected.

'There are lots of threats to you in the world. There's the threat of a heart attack for genetic reasons. You can't sit there and worry about everything. Get a life,' he said."

Bloomberg On JFK Plot: 'Stop Worrying, Get A Life'

"'You have a much greater danger of being hit by lightning than being struck by a terrorist.'", the Mayor added.
