A Conspiracy Theory Even The DUmmies Won't Buy
Check out this explanation of the 2002 Bali bombing from Indonesian Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir:
In an interview tonight on ABC television's Foreign Correspondent, Bashir claims the device that killed most people in the Bali attack was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) "micro-nuclear" bomb.One of the commenters in this DU thread about the article actually picked up on the concept of critical mass, and how that sets a lower limit on the potential yield of a nuclear warhead.
"The micro-nuclear bomb that did so much damage was a CIA bomb, not Amrozi's bomb," Bashir told the ABC.
"The Bali bombing was actually masterminded by America. Well, not masterminded, but hijacked. They planned it, but their plan was hijacked by America."
"So the bomb that killed so many Australians, it was an American bomb. It wasn't the bomb made by Amrozi and his friends."
I did mention the article at the blog of Idaho's favorite moonbat, though, so we'll see if he runs with it (like he did with my request that he check out the Jesse MacBeth story earlier this year). And yes, for those who were wondering, that is my picture next to the phrase "easily amused" in the dictionary.
