Iím not sure why you assume that the government is trying to scare anybody, and why they would think that doing so would help ďthemĒ get reelected.
Unless the news of this incident was released by government officials, itís more likely that itís just another case of the media hyping a situation up
to get viewers. Now granted, other governments have been known to use such propaganda tactics in the past. However, I have yet to see any
evidence that this administration has been doing so in regards to terror alerts. Lots of people in the news, have made arguments that the Bush admin.
embellished the reports of Iraqís threat to the U.S. but I know of no one who has made the same claims about Homeland Security. As a matter of fact,
the U.S. gov. has tried to be extremely careful in not putting out frivolous warnings. If they really wanted to scare people, they could make a new
announcement every day. As there are a number of different items that cross the analysts desk daily. Maybe one should look to the media, when trying
to figure out who has the most to gain in scaring the U.S. population.
