Vagina greater threat than Osama

News & Politics

By my count Osama's been on the loose for 1469 days and we're devoting resources to this:

"US Attorney General Gonzales launches the Bush administration's latest antismut assault, and is recruiting agents for a new FBI 'porn squad,'" writes Xeni Jardin.

"Eight agents, a supervisor and support staff will be responsible for gathering evidence on 'manufacturers and purveyors' of porn -- not 'child porn,' we're talking about the kind that features consenting adults, and is purchased by consenting adults."

From the cheeky WaPo article:

"'I guess this means we've won the war on terror,' said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. 'We must not need any more resources for espionage.'"
