"GOVT IN CAHOOTS WITH AL QAEDA", reads the Express headline today:

Opposition Leader Basdeo Panday yesterday accused the Government of having an association with Al Qaeda terrorist connections in Trinidad and Tobago....

Panday added that it was well known "that there was [sic?] Al Qaeda connections in Trinidad and it is well known that the Government was in association with those elements just before the (October 7, 2002) elections. It's known."

Where does inflammatory rhetoric end & certifiable insanity begin?

Could it simply be that Panday's guiding policy since the general election last year has been sheer bloody-minded spite against the electorate that failed to return the UNC to government?

Note how the report ends:

Panday also said he would be willing to meet with Manning to discuss a nominee for President.

Willing to negotiate with "terrorists", in other words?
