Are the repetitious Terror Alerts a merely a politial ploy?
A timing Analysis shows a surprising correspondence
between the timing of Terror Alert issuance and
news detrimental to the Bush administration.
This raises troubling questions about the priorities
of the administration by President George Bush.
Biltud, from Salon.com's TableTalk, posted a few days ago a series of correlations between past terror alerts and political events unfavorable to the
Bush administration. I compiled all these correlations and organized them chronologically into a timeline. I also added additional news items and
other instances that I found out, detailing the terror alerts over the last few years, and located the original sources for many of these news
articles. Soon, Biltud and I started to research together all these occurrences, and more interesting "coincidences" started to appear. We finally
built this timeline of terror alerts and how they relate to the news headlines of the days immediately prior to that very alert. I think it's very
easy to see a pattern recurring (Text in blue marks the original notes by Biltud. Text and sources in black are my additions):

If these threats are not politically choreographed,
then they reflect a regime responding with primal panic
to intelligence so deeply flawed it barely deserves funding.
The latest threat arising from the old documents recovered
in Pakistan illustrates how flawed information can so
easily sprint from field agents all the way through
the intelligence bureaucracy and onto our headlines
without so much as a simple caveat attached.
This would underscore how severely the intelligence system
lacks the necessary insight and oversight to properly
perform such a critical task as analyzing information.
On the other hand, it may reflect something far more mundane.
Haste to publicize overriding the responsibility to analyze
may indicate management handling of specialist duties.
Is this haste to publicize driven by political agendas?
In light of the priorities of the administration's
desire to chase down and incarcerate such ominous threats
like Bobby Fischer, Charles Jenkins, and other, lesser citizens,
the question arises: What drives the administrations priorities?
Is publicity pre-empting every consideration of propriety?
If there are 'timing considerations' affecting
the issuance of these repetitious alarms,
then George Bush's Presidency may not survive the election.
Assuming, of course, the elections are actually permitted.
