It seems the US media is keeping things from us.
I know you are shocked to read that! What is it this time, you ask? This:
The three Algerians detained on Tuesday in the Italian cities of Brescia and Naples were planning a massive terror attack - "on a ship as big as the Titanic, packed with explosives" - that aimed to kill "at least 10,000 people", as well as an attack on "Italian citizens and interests" in Tunisia, according phone conversations between the three men, which Italian anti-terror police say they intercepted after al-Qaeda's deadly 7 July attacks on London and on the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh. In their tapped phone conversations, Yamine Bouhrama, Mohamed Larbi and Khaled Serai described the 7 July London subway and bus bombings that killed over 50 and injured 700, and the 23 July Sharm El-Sheikh terror attacks that killed 90 people and injured over 150 as "highdays and holidays", according to police. The three also spoke of having "documents ready", "war on the infidel", and "a bigger party" than the London attacks.
This was reported throughout the European media on November 18. What we did hear out of the American media was minimal at best. Check out this and this and compare them to the European reporting on the same subject! MSNBC does not even mention the fact that the intelligence was obtained via wiretaps and ABC buries the fact deep in the story.
I know that this is an old meme...but it is one that bears repeating hourly until such time as the US media cleans up their act. As long as they continue this type of poor reporting, they are going to loose readers to the internet and blogs (such as this one).
UPDATE AND BUMP: According to these two articles the terrorists were planning attacks in the US (among other places) and they wanted to "out-do" the 9/11 attacks! THIS is what the US press is keeping from us!
