Tom Ridge sez:
"Since September 11th, 2001, we have had intelligence that al Qaeda intends to launch more attacks against the homeland," he said.
Well, duh. He forgets to mention that they had this intelligence before 9/11 as well. Does anyone really believe that al Qaeda was just gonna smoke a cigarette, roll over and go to sleep-and stay that way forever? Homeland attacks a possibility?
Just what we need-a reminder to be AFRAID. We need to brave like Bush! Hah!
He chicken-shitted his way out of Viet Nam, won't answer any questions about his arrest record (two known DUI's and a possible cocaine charge)and is so afraid of getting caught in a lie he couldn't face the 9/11 commission without Unca Dick to hold his hand. He's such a bad-ass.
"Credible reporting now indicates that al Qaeda is moving forward with its plans to carry out a large-scale attack in the United States in an effort to disrupt our democratic process."
The implication here is that al Qaeda wants Bush to lose, while ,in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Terrorism is on the rise since Bush's war. Why kill the golden goose? The secret service is advising journalists at the Dem Convention to carry "respirator escape hoods." (Gas masks) What secrets do they know? I'm much more concerned about some whack-job American militia nut being played into the Tim McVeigh-style of political activism. Think Lee Harvey Oswald with a CIA-supplied truckload of WMD instead of a rifle. Oh, the target hasn't been elected yet this time.
Speaking of which, it seems the Repugs have really gone on the defensive, claiming to be the party of optimism while they tell us "you're gonna die, we just don't have the details." Shit, my doctor can tell me that. That would be a lot scarier.
Time for a second opinion.
