The Incident: Monday 4th March 0230am ESST. Australia. The entire 20 minute segment of the Arab vote that "Arabs were not responsible for Sep 11" was stealthily extracted from the Meet The Press with Tim Russert. Strangely enough, CHOGM is in progress in Queensland, where all billboard advertisements with bathing costumes have been taken down so as not to offend Muslem deligates.

Results of Incident: Sensitivities of Muslim nations not embittered, but Australians' eyes are a little scratchy from the wool.
