IS THE STATEN ISLAND REFINERY

IS THE STATEN ISLAND REFINERY FIRE TERRORISM? Probably not, but Rod Dreher writes about a curious incident right after 9/11 involving someone wanting to photograph American refineries. “Point is, our enemies are watching our refineries. That’s why the first thing I thought of when I saw the fire was: ‘Terrorism.'”

And Saddam Hussein does have a thing about setting oil refineries ablaze. Dreher adds a comment from friend: “28,000 New Yorkers are now going back into therapy.”
