Media Moronry in Wannabe Terrorists' Let-Off

SOLO Press Release: More Media Moronry in Wake of Wannabe Terrorists' Let-Off

November 9, 2007

The media and the rest of the nation's Political Correctness Nazis
are undulating in a feeding frenzy of phony indignation about hurt
feelings and damaged relationships in the wake of the
Solicitor-General's finding that the wannabe terrorists can't be
charged under the Suppression of Terrorism Act, says SOLO Principal
Lindsay Perigo.

pin-ups' agenda comes to pass, they'll be among the first to be blown
up, or lined up against a wall, notwithstanding their erstwhile

"Meanwhile, thanks to political incompetence, the public remains in
the dark about precisely what Iti and his comrades were up to that was

outrage forthwith," Perigo concludes.
