Operation Wha???

I just found the following on my AOL news:

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 22) - With Super Bowl Sunday just days away, federal immigration officials in San Diego have arrested ''a number'' of foreign-born residents with access to the game's venue, Qualcomm Stadium, in an unprecedented security crackdown, officials said Wednesday.

The plan, known as ''Operation Game Day,'' is part of a $9 million post-Sept. 11 anti-terrorism effort that includes beefed up security at the California-Mexico border, a no-fly zone over the stadium, military air patrols and an elaborate camera system monitoring every inch of the stadium and environs.

Arab-American groups estimated at least 36 people have been detained -- mostly Middle Eastern and Latino workers who were security guards or concession workers at the stadium.


My brief searches have not availed me of an ACTUAL url to post here, and since it's in my crappy AOL window it doesn't have a URL like a normal web page. Grr. I even searched on Reuters. Which is where it said this came from. Either way, I find it outgrageous!!! OK, I sent it to myself in an email. It looks like this:

aol://4344:3167.sbdetain.21078480.727746295

Which, when I try to put it in a regular browser, shows up in my stupid effing AOL client. If anyone can help me with this technical difficulty with displaying my lame-ass AOL news, feel free to point out what I've missed.

I understand that this makes me look like an idiot in public for not understanding how to get a fucking address for this but I don't care, it makes me really mad that I can't find this article to post which already makes me really mad.

Well, first of all, it was AOL borrowing Reuters news... and second... shouldn't you be MORE upset that I am giving my money to AOL for their internet service?

Can you name a company that I can feel "morally" good about giving money to for internet service?

Don't care who you use as an internet provider its who you believe that is the concern. If you find it on AOL but don't find it at reuters wouldn't that raise a flag?

Re: AOL news????
You missed my point, but the long and the short of it is that I don't believe anything in the mass media without some kind of corroboration. Which I assumed I would get, because it is a Reuters story. And I got it.
