It's like when there was all that hub-bub about that Patriots cheating in the Superbowl, which I fully believe they did. If people may recall, it was the 2001 'disrupted' season where the Patriots were the upset winners of the Superbowl, getting there with lots of help from the refs. Then, 7 yrs later they are chastised for cheating and whipped in the media.
So, when it served the propagandistic interests post-911 we have the Patriots win the Superbowl. Then when the republic is supposed to be gasping its last breath we find the Patriots to be cheaters.
Who wants to bet that the Patriots go to London this weekend as heavy favorites and get upset by the Skull 'n Bonesmen Redcoats?
