Mindblowing stupidity 

Donald Rumsfeld is trying to provoke terrorist attacks on America. Seriously. I read it at Democratic Underground. I'm probably beginning to sound like a broken record, but where do these people come from???

UPDATE: Here's the supposedly earth-shaking bit, from an October, 2002 article by William Arkin in the LA Times:

The board recommends creation of a super-Intelligence Support Activity, an organization it dubs the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group, (P2OG), to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception.

Among other things, this body would launch secret operations aimed at "stimulating reactions" among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction -- that is, for instance, prodding terrorist cells into action and exposing themselves to "quick-response" attacks by U.S. forces.
That DU poster has to read for context, because his comprehension is atrocious. There's nothing here to suggest that "there will be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large... Because these attacks will be instigated at the order of the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense." Hardly. This is all about conducting operations to spook terrorists overseas into exposing themselves so they can be eliminated. I would be outraged if this were not happening. But hey, DU has yet to meet a conspiracy theory it doesn't like, regardless of the level of stupidity required to believe it.
