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'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.

Everything a politician does is a political move. Whether or not the terror alerts are working in some way for Bush as political gain is irrelevent, he and his administration are doing their job.

If a terror attack happened, without warnings being issued, all liberals would be like "wtf he didn't warn us he's so horrible." For example before 9/11. He didn't pay attention to the warnings he got, and look what happened.

But now that he IS warning us, he IS doing what people said he should have done before 9/11, liberals are bitching about it. Bush is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. If he warns us people complain, if he doesn't warn us people complain. What do you liberals want from him!? God... It pisses me off, and I'm not even a Bush supporter.

every time there was a possibility of a news story breaking out that they didn't want exposed, clinton was bombing, or there was new news about Monica.....
