Poll: Al-Qaeda Needs Terror Approvals

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- According to a new IpsoFacto poll, a majority of Americans believe that al-Qaeda should get approvals before conducting a terrorist attack. Approximately 56% of the poll respondents said terrorist leaders should be required to first apply for and then obtain a series of permits and licenses prior to any future attacks.

The type of permits or licenses terrorists should obtain would vary depending on the type of attack envisioned. Such permits could include, but are not limited to: 1) authorization to use explosives, 2) burning permit, 3) demolition permit, 4) meat slaughtering license, 5) dangerous goods permit, 6) firearm registration, 7) temporary road closure permit, 8) air pollution permit, 9) water pollution permit, 10) importation license, 11) motor vehicle license, 12) transporter license, 13) pilot license, 14) hazardous waste generator permit, 15) public gathering permit, 16) visa, and 17) work permit.

Experts confirm that this approach will significantly delay any future attacks, and the fees generated will help offset attack clean-up efforts.

This is just such a great idea. The way the dims loves taxes and fees ,you would have thought they would have come up with this idea.
Maybe we should make the Al-Qaeda register as enemy agents ,too.

I noticed from the actual poll that generated this article, that mainly Democrats want the government to get approval before they monitor terrorist phone conversations. I tell you, that was really shocking to me. I mean, who could have predicted that result?

The IpsoFacto poll? Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

As the kids in the 'hood say, "Dats da bomb!" Or something like that.

On the other hand, I don't think the terrorists would like all of that bureaucracy. They prefer hands-on decision making.

prettyold,
They should register as enemy agents and toxic agents as well.

Beerme,
Good one... "permit"... "approve"... very witty.

Pat'sRick©,
I know, scary huh? The logic behind that kinda thinking is what drove this article.

OLA,
Hands-on and heads-off I'm afraid.

Heck, just the waiting in line at the DMV for all those licenses will delay any attack indefinitely. Then to pile on, all that paperwork for the EPA! I heartily approve!

ieuyiyar! Sounds like some kind of uulation, donchathink? A coincidence? I think not.
