Needless to say, the "Californian"
turns about to be - well, read on:
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 3 â€” Federal authorities said Friday that a California man has been arrested on terrorism-related charges and indicted along with his Malaysian brother, a fugitive and suspected leader of Jemaah Islamiyah, the group blamed for killing 202 people in the 2002 bombing of a nightclub in Bali, Indonesia.Rahmat Abdhir, 43, a United States citizen of Malaysian descent living in San Jose, was arrested at his workplace in Sunnyvale on Thursday after officials issued a 16-count indictment charging him with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, lying to federal officials and contributing goods and services to a â€?global terrorist.â€?

This PC censoring of the race and/or national origin of crime suspects is generally justified on the grounds that race and/or national origin is irrelevant - absurdly, because no facts can ever be completely irrelevant.
But in this case the news that terrorists are not
appearing among native-born California Girls
(and boys) is highly relevant. So is the news that U.S. immigration and naturalization policy is apparently failing to exclude terrorists.
That, of course, is exactly why
the news is being censored.
The New York Times
has a "Public Editor"
. Readers should ask him
why the headline was not the more truthful (and relevant) "Immigrant Arrested On Terror Charges"
