The Bush Administration is backing off of the recently issued terror advisories by now stating that they do not believe an attack is imminent. After
initally sounding the alarm it appears they have now done a more detailed analysis of the evidence, and discovered that it may not point towards
And since Ridge's announcement, the Bush administration has discovered no evidence of imminent plans by terrorists to attack U.S. buildings, a White
House official acknowledged Thursday.
Some documents and computer files seized in Al Qaeda raids included surveillance reports of the financial buildings during 2000 and 2001, which
prompted warnings Aug. 1 from the White House about possible threats. But nothing in the documents themselves has suggested any attack was planned

It certainly seems as if the Bush administration is now so cautious that they will issue an alert without the full story. First they are blamed for
not informing the public, and now they are alerting the public to soon.
Certainly this should not make the Orange alert for NYC, DC, and Newark any less relevant, but without a time frame, I am afraid all of those trying
to protect those areas will become burned out.
