Fox News chief correspondent Jim Angle once again repeated the old chestnut that the National Security Agency's warrantless domestic surveillance program led to the arrest of Al Qaeda accomplice Iyman Faris, a naturalized U.S. citizen who pleaded guilty in 2003 to plotting to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge.
However, a January 17 New York Times report indicated that information gleaned from the warrantless NSA eavesdropping did not play "a significant role" in Faris's capture nor the saving of the Brooklyn Bridge and all the vehicles traveling it.
Today the New York Gazette reported that neither the National Security Agency nor the FBI or even the CIA eavesdropping on private citizens saved all those lives.
Also, the water boarding of Gitmo detainees did not lead to the Bridge not being blown away.
According to the new report, it was the traffic itself that day in early 2003, that saved the day.
Old police records show that a record number of 15 victims were ran over that morning while "Running around the Brooklyn Bridge, sitting down apparently trying to use some wired items."
None of the 15 survived as they were ran over several times each before an ambulance crew and police could get the traffic stopped, several cars while still sitting over a victim.
"All fifteen had faked ID's so I guess they were all together."
When asked why this wasn't reported before, our source said that they were forbidden by the government.."Probably because they wanted the credit."
"Also, those idiot terrorists must have chosen "Rush Hour" to claim more victims. Well, they succeeded."
