The vicory of al-Qaeda
At a Wednesday meeting of the D.C. Taxicab Commission (DCTC), two journalists were arrested by Park Police for taking photos at the public meeting. During the meeting, a taxi inspector approached the Journalists and told them that they couldn’t take photographs of commission members seated at the front of the room.
It's not only the arrest. The very idea that a person in power, here in America, can even think he can force anyone to stop taking photos in a public gathering is mind shuddering. It was unthinkable only a decade ago. But since new rules and codes of behavior had been adopted after the September 11 attack, our path to no-freedom has been established. Unless we stop it now, al-Qaeda has won the war.
