Perspective please

The Globe reports today on that threat of suicide bombers being dispatched to western countries, courtesy of Brian Ross' ABC News site.
ABC News obtained footage this week of a reputed Taliban graduation ceremony. In it, a top commander lines up about 300 young training-camp graduates. Then he announces plans to send them on missions to the United States, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom in retaliation for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's presence in Afghanistan.
While this is to be taken note of, it should be kept in mind that this is Brian Ross' reporting and while he gets a lot of interesting stuff, some of his reports just never pan out. Remember the hype over the DC Madam recently where there were supposed to be a bunch of high profile Washington politicians and military officials being disclosed by Ross? Didn't really pan out as hyped.

Besides, I'm more concerned about driving on Ontario highways these days...
