White lines 

A sneak-peak from Drudge on Osama's Weapons of Mass Snorting:
Osama bin Laden tried to buy a massive amount of cocaine, spike it with poison and sell it in the United States, hoping to kill thousands of Americans one year after the 9/11 attacks, the NEW YORK POST reported on Tuesday.

The evil plot failed when the Colombian drug lords bin Laden approached decided it would be bad for their business - and, possibly, for their own health, according to law-enforcement sources familiar with the Drug Enforcement Administration's probe of the aborted transaction.
What a great scheme to paralyze the entertainment industry and the world of the beautiful people!

I doubt though, if the plan would have worked as well as Osama had hoped for. I think a panic would erupt very quickly, leaving many dead to be sure, but also leaving a lot of angry dealers with a lot of merchandise which they did not manage to sell before all hell broke loose. There's already been reports that American ghetto gangs are infiltrating the armed forces and using the Iraq tours of duty as valuable training in urban warfare. Maybe Osama just needs a posse of irate Bloods and Crips on his trail for messing with their business.

It would be interesting to watch the overall cocaine use drop, as dabblers would decline playing the Colombian roulette, not knowing whether they're buying the poisoned coke or a clean one (for the lack of a better word).

It would also be interesting to see if Michael Moore, who a few years ago was lamenting that Osama had attacked all the blue areas instead of the states that voted Republican, would now whine that Al Qaeda is targeting coke users, instead of, say, evangelical Christians.

Anyway, here's the full story.
