According to a report issued by the Government Accountability Office, Federal agencies are not giving adequate information why they are issuing terror warnings. The GAO says Tom Ridge and others are leaving local and state authorities in the dark as to the extent, location and the timing of suspected terror attacks.
U.S. government terror warnings to local police and citizens fail to give the specific information many authorities say is needed to protect the public, a report made for Congress said Monday.

The report followed a series of official warnings about possible attacks -- most recently voiced last week by Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge -- which lacked new intelligence or details on the threat and how to respond.

The report urged the Department of Homeland Security to give "specific information about the nature, location and timing of the threat, and guidance on action to take."

This is the same argument I've heard many times on ATS, maybe someone in Washington is finally waking up and seeing the Orwellian methods of this Administration.
