That ole (black ops)magics got me out of its spell
That black ops magic that they wove so well....
It worked for a while but time did tell
That terrorists were mostly a black ops shell................
Now bring on Blue Beam!
We need a change of venue!
Scare us with the aliens oh please!
Gosh. Maybe its just that I'm overly apathetic/jaded on the matter anymore.
If they have done the leg work and actually come up with a source that validates the threat. Then good job I say. Keep up with all the Intel gathering/Eve dropping of cell phones and body searches at the airport etc etc....I sure as heck don't want to see people get hurt or die.
But it's starting to feel sometimes these "Threat Warning's" are becoming more of a need to put it out there to the public to justify the budget and tactics. Even if there was never actually a threat.
How come every time the warnings come up. They just don't come out and say by whom. Just call them extremist. No positive I.D. and where they are located. And documentation by the extremist citing so.
I know I know..as the old thing goes...." In a perfect world ".
So I guess it really is best to say out loud that we know that you know....

what was his name ....chertoff.....
they prolly have a new big budget x ray machine they need to justify
If there was really a threat, wouldn't they just tell the airlines and TSA to be on the lookout? - and keep it on the down low? Why the announcement to the world and ^cough^ the actual bomber - who now has to take his bomb out of his shoes and put it in his underwear!
Now, let's try to determine why they feel the need to ratchet up the fear level at this time. Distraction from what? Or just general good PR for the existence of NSA and TSA.edit on 19-2-2014 by Maluhia because: (no reason given)

"very recent intelligence"
Something concrete from someone with a name would be a welcome change.
So easy to say something without saying anything...as usual.
