When Good Terrorist Cells Go Bad

Postby JTWood » Wed Mar 09, 2005 3:10 pm

FoxNews.com wrote:SYDNEY, Australia — Russell Crowe says Usama bin Laden's Al Qaeda terror network wanted to kidnap him as part of a "cultural destabilization plot," according to an Australian magazine.

In an interview published in the March edition of Australia's GQ magazine, Crowe said FBI agents told him of the threat in 2001, in the months before he won a best actor Oscar for his role as Maximus in "Gladiator."

"That was the first (time) I'd ever heard the phrase 'Al Qaeda,'" Crowe said. "It was about — and here's another little touch of irony — taking iconographic Americans out of the picture as sort of a cultural destabilization plot," he added.

Crowe was born in New Zealand and has a ranch in eastern Australia but made his name in Hollywood.

It was not clear if there were other targets in the plot.

Crowe said he was shadowed by FBI agents after the threat and hired private security guards.

This is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.

"Cultural destabilization"??? Russell Crowe???

Oh Lord! What will I ever do without his beautiful mind!?! Please, oh please. Give us back our Russell Crowe... mate.

Well isn't he special.

Why would anyone even bother saying this unless they were looking for attention?

Because probably someone asked him a question like, "Have you ever been stalked?", and that incident probably came to his mind. I don't think he called up reporters and told them this on his own.

So basically, about 75 million people. Or maybe just the people who made duct tape stock spike higher than eBay's. You're over-estimating your peers :-b

I saw that conversation :-D . Crazy as it is, if you go into Wal-Mart down here, you have "Duct Tape" and "Duck Tape" side by side for sale. Just some useless info to pass along. :-b

The thing is, I can't imagine he'd make this up. I just can't. Who would make something like this up?


I wonder if it is true. It's so weird, it might just be.
