Good morning, fellow commuters
: So this morning I dash down to the PATH platform to rush into New York and I debate whether to take the midtown or the World Trade Center train; I prefer the latter but have been taking it less lately, since the newest terror warnings about financial buildings, there being lots of those downtown. And I glance up at the TV screen that gives us advertising all day and see a mug shot for Amer El-Maati and an appeal from the FBI to look for the guy. Says Mugshots.com:
This is Amer El-Maati, another one of the Al-Qaeda operatives wanted for questioning by the FBI for the possible terrorist attacks on the U.S. in the summer or fall of 2004. This guy’s a Kuwaiti by birth, and wears coke-bottle glasses. He’s also got a bunch of aliases, so if you know where he is, drop a dime on him and let the Feds know so they can pick him up.
Oh, joy. Other commuters in the world have to worry about dumb drivers. We have to worry about terrorists.
