Two stories on Drudge today caused an interesting confluence:
Bin Laden suggested…that the organisation should…press home the message that the major powers would be better concentrating on climate change than pursuing al-Qaida. He wrote:
“This is a chance to explain our motives for continuing the war. The wise people would tell you to give people their rights in order to be able to focus on other vital issues such as global warming…”
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declared global warming a national security threat yesterday during a speech before an environmentalist group in Washington, D.C.
Who’s side Is Leon Panetta (and by extension, the Obama Administration as a whole) on anyway?
Interestingly, Drudge usually connects those dots (at least by inference) when posting news items that seem interrelated like this. This time, the two stories weren’t posted in close proximity with one another. Perhaps the interesting connection wasn’t noticed because the statement from the Al-Qaida/Bin Laden story wasn’t the main thrust of the piece?
Anyway, reading those two stories on the same day sure made me go “Hmmmmm”.
