    September was chosen, by whoever planned it, for the big event not because it was Tuesday, or because it was September, but because people say things and e-mail things like "Uncle Fred had a heart attack and we called 9-1-1," so frequently that 9-1-1 was a phrase that would not call attention or be a cause for a red flag. I'm not saying whose idea I think it was, just that it occurred to me, immediately, because I was already aware of the "rumors" of this.

        And this is to go with the story on the Today show in which "US accuses Iran of arming Iraq Militants"
