And speaking of crack intelligence, Jack Tomarchio, a senior official in Homeland Security's intelligence division, tells us that it's imperative that firemen and EMS personnel be turned into government informants 'cause otherwise how would they know what to do if perchance they find something like, you know, a bunch of RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) rounds in somebody's basement (I'm not joking; that is an actual quote).
Wow, just wow! What is there left to say? Well, maybe just this. If only Nada Nadim Prouty had lived in the city and had had a fire or medical emergency, firemen or EMS personnel could've informed on her and spared the FBI and the CIA the shame of having hired her. Or maybe not. After all no basement RPGs (yeah, right; basement storage spaces for city apartments!), hostile or uncooperative persons, and/or minimalist decorating styles were involved in that case.
UPDATE: Doug Robertson offers some tips on how to behave when the firefighters show up at your door:
- Be patriotic. Wave an American flag if one is handy, being careful not to fan the flames, of course. If that’s not an option, burst into song, any patriotic anthem will do. They’ve also learned to pick up on anyone "expressing hate or discontent with the United States."
