Oh no! New 9/11 tapes revealed!

Hot on the heels of last week's alleged terrorist arrests, new tapes of calls to emergency services on the morning of 9/11 were released by the Fire Commissioner today. These tapes were from the same source as those released last March and used during the trial of Zacharias Moussoui, but because of "mishandling" the tapes weren't released until now.

Mishandling! What a coincidence that the tapes were "mishandled" until just weeks before the anniversary of 9/11. Doubly coincidental that these new tapes emerge at a time when the Bush administration is desperate to keep everyone pants-pissingly terrified. Also coincidentally and ironically, the 24 yahoos arrested last week in the UK still haven't been charged with anything.

Looks like we need to add another category to the Bullshit Alert Advisory System: upgrade to "EXTREME risk of bullshit!"
