I Always Thought NSync Were Evil, But Never Knew Timberlake Was An Al Qaida Operative Senator Sam Brownback told the National Association of Broadcasters that the Boobgate scandal during the Superbowl halftime show was "the vilest, narrowest, most hedonistic aspects of our culture," and in airing it CBS "hurt the war effort by giving such obvious moral ammunition to the recruiters of Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban." No doubt Osama squealed with delight when he saw Jackson's boob on his cave-installed plasma screen.
