America Braces - Again

If this comes true, it cannot be blamed on Clinton. It cannot be blamed on Saddam. It cannot be blamed on Kerry, Democrats or the Bogeyman.

It will be because of the failure of President George W. Bush to protect America. God knows he's implemented enough programs, military action and hubris to thwart this sort of thing...didn't he?

Moreover, I am so stinkin' tired of this administration's mindset that if you predict violence, and it comes true, it absolves you from the blame if it happens. "Hey, I knew this was gonna happen, so don't look at me." It's such a chickencrap gambit.

U.S. to Announce New Terror-Related Threat

The U.S. Justice Department and the FBI will announce a new terror-related threat amid increased security concerns over several high-profile events in the United States, law enforcement officials said on Tuesday.

Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller are due to hold a 2 p.m. news conference at FBI headquarters on Wednesday to give details of the threat, the officials said.

One law enforcement official said Mueller and Ashcroft would announce an FBI "be on the lookout" bulletin and give specific information about individuals the FBI is seeking.

"It's more investigatory...there's nothing to do with infrastructure protection," the official said.

The Department of Homeland Security has no plans to raise the color-coded terror alert level, which is currently set at "yellow" for an "elevated" risk of attack, officials said.
