Well, like the article says, it's not corraborated and they get info like this often. Maybe one day someone will actually happen, maybe not.

Maybe it's an intentionally leaked distraction to keep the FBI from looking wherever it is that the real threat is happening. Let's pick an event completely at random as an example... oh, let's say... the Innauguration.

I really hope our FBI is smarter than the media.

You know all those spy movies where the government is equiped with top secret toys, and all their people are top notch, and the buildings have secret elevators and spotlessly clean cobalt steel war rooms... well just suppose that not one of the governments in the world really has anything like that, and instead, all they've got are the government buildings we see like those run down stodgy old courthouse buildings with dingy tile from the 1950's in the hallways and computers with reel to reel magnetic tape.

How likely is it that the best crime fighting people and technology on the planet are just the props and actors in our TV shows and movies, and that we've seen so much fantasy masquerading as "secret government" that we don't have any idea how effective the real deal is any more.

Wouldn't it be funny if all those top secret military satelites are sending back data to goverrnment facilities which are to underequiped to process the data in time to do anything about it?

Funny? I thought that was reality.

This story did make it to the front page of boston.com.

I tend to think along the "Hey, look over there!" line as rosborne does.

Oh, I know about those toys, rosborne. They showed Pres. Kennedy a space photo of a grunt in the Vietnamese jungle that came out so well he could read the name tag - or so the story goes. Thirty years later, they couldn't find the somewhat larger Iraqi mobile rocket launchers - in the desert.

"The nature of the threat that has been provided is an uncorroborated, unsubstantiated threat."

Since when do threats have to be "corroborated" or "substantiated" ?

I say we invade something right away. Preferably something with oil.

Ha Smile Pretty funny Smile

Those terrorists looked chinese, unfortunately, China has nukes, and no oil, so it looks like we'll need to invade ... IRAN! Heck, Iran could be training chinese immigrants as terrorists, but mainly, Iran has Oil, and they're on our short list anyway. Wink

Instead of _The Naked Gun_, we can call it _The Naked War_ Smile

The movie Dr. Strangelove worried about the frailty of humans interacting with the ruthless efficiency of machines resulting in a Berserker.

These days it seems we have a similar problem except that the monster which results isn't a Nuclear Berserker, but an Military-Intelligence Clown.

It also said something about two Iraqis. Wonder what the connection is between them all?

Well, the governor of good Mass gave up his partying in DC to show that all was safe here in Boston. He said he is sleeping here at home and plans on staying here to show that Boston is safe.

You reference our extremist, unproductive, divisive, bigoted governor, the one who was elected to bring jobs to the commonwealth but has spent all his time obsessively and venomously opposing gay marriage ?

That governor ?

I highly recommend him for a post, A N Y post, in the new Bush regime, effective immediately.
