The New York Times reporting at its best again....
Let me know when The NY 'Slimes' prints their 'credible' source for this news story, k?

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- President George W. Bush, declaring the nation was still not safe from terrorist attack, announced Monday the creation of a national director to oversee federal intelligence gathering and the creation of a National Intelligence Center to monitor and coordinate all government counter-terrorism plans and activities.
"The work of securing this vast nation is not done," Bush said. "The elevation of the threat level in New York and New Jersey and Washington, D.C., is a serious reminder, a solemn reminder, of the threat we continue to face."
There are claims that new warnings of al-Qaeda attacks on US cities are based on old intelligence.
