Circle the wagons. There's another terror alert out. Turns out the information is several years old. When you put it with what happened on 9/11 the whole thing sounds like a shopping list of possible targets, with the trade centers, pentagon, and white house making the short list.
I'd like to believe the threat is real. I know, this sounds really weird. But darn it, these alerts always seem to come right after the democrats have good poll results. I realized this connection about two alerts back.
Even if they are picking up recent transmissions, heck Al-Quaeda doesn't have to blow anything up to tie us in knots. All they have to do is threaten to do something and we do the rest. Meanwhile real people are getting hurt overseas and we still don't have an exit strategy.
