Rest Easy, America: Osama bin Ladens All Found!

Ohio crackpot Thomas Potter doesn't believe the government's official story of what happened on 9/11, and to prove his point, he found three listings for "Usama bin Laden" in an internet phone book.


Now, Potter says the government owes him the massive reward it promises to anyone with information leading to the capture of Osama bin Laden.

"I understand that the FBI is offering $25 million," Potter wrote in an e-mail to the Department of Justice, alerting them to his findings. "I would like to know if the reward is tax free and if I could please receive it in cash."

Ha ha, what a joker. One bin Laden works for Fox, naturally, one lives in Tennessee, and one works right around the corner from us in Bethesda.

Of course, the Fox dude and the Bethesda software corporation denied even knowing that the world's most dangerous terrorist was on their payrolls. In another fun twist, the father of the guy from the software group is on the board of the Prince Group, which owns Blackwater, the "private security contractors" who actually run the securable portions of Iraq right now.

All hail Thomas Potter, true American hero!

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
