Terrorist organizations worldwide expressed great frustration today at the plan for heightened security at this year’s Oscar Awards show. The US government has long known that anti-US terrorists want nothing more than to strike at America’s most precious resources, it’s movie stars. “These celebrities must be protected at all costs,” stated Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge. “We are pulling security away from other potential terrorist targets all over the greater Los Angeles area,” said LA Police Chief William J. Bratton. “No rogue nation or militant group is going to harm our country’s superstars tonight.”
