Hipster Holocaust Narrowly Averted

Today the New York Post reported that in 2002, Osama bin Laden allegedly tried to buy a massive amount of cocaine, with hopes of spiking it with poison, then selling it in the United States, killing thousands of Americans one year after the 9/11 attacks.

The terror plot was apparently foiled by those noted protectors of human life and justice, Colombian drug lords, who reportedly declined bin Laden’s lucrative offer out of fear it would ruin the U.S. market for cocaine. Which is probably right.
