While I agree that it isn't the best idea to share our weaknesses with terrorists, I think the terrorists are probably more aware of our weaknesses than our assessors are!

And maybe the leak could benefit the public. Rather than being given such a general statement like 'report suspicious behavior', if the public knows the weak spots in all of our systems they can be more vigilint in those particular areas.

Just a thought.

Verrrry interesting...

The following thread is definitely related:

Chicago Emergency Alert System Activated Today (6/26/07) By Presidential Code

An emergency alert announced on TV and radio stations in Illinois this morning appears to be the result of a human error in Washington, D.C.

"Apparently, there's some kind of test being run that shouldn't be going out," Lawrence said. "(IEMA) is getting besieged with phone calls from all over the state."

Rather than a test code being sent to the satellites, the Presidential code was sent instead.

"we don't know why the federal govt used a 'hot' or active code rather then a test code."


Watch out Chicago, they've got their eyes on you.

Do you think the terrorist would have known about these files on the internet if news outlets hadnt of plastered it all over the web and newspapers?

The one thing I hate most about our flawed "homeland secruity" is that the news media is always explaing all of our faults in great detail on a regular basis. Shouldnt the government smack a lid down on these kinds of stories? It is a threat to national secruity is it not?
