Just in Time for CPAC Travel: Terror Threat 'Most Heightened' Since 9/11

The threat of terrorism is at "its most heightened state" since the 9/11 attacks nearly a decade ago, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said today.

"The terrorist threat facing our country has evolved significantly in the last ten years -- and continues to evolve -- so that, in some ways, the threat facing us is at its most heightened state since those attacks, she said before the House Homeland Security Committee. Her comments were a sobering reminder that the potential of another attack is real and growing, most notably from individuals radicalized inside the United States, despite elaborate security measures implemented by the government since 2001.

The timing of this report is very suspect

How convenient to be released the day after the "Patriot" Extensions fail in congress and provisions will expire at the end of this month unless something radical happens.

I also love how the public is becoming increasingly conditioned to accept that the new breed terrorists are in fact American citizens.

It's like I'm reading a novel and am pretty certain I know how it all ends.

You are SO right. It is

You are SO right. It is working, too, in big cities. People are really getting scared of each other.

...as if Field Marshal Janet and her ...

TSA Nazis had nothing to do with it...

Maybe this

will keep some of the neocon lemmings at home, hiding under their beds.

I can't see this deterring true RP supporters that are aware of the whole "security theater" scam.

Maybe the "terror threat" was heightened because Rummy's going to be there.


Like as if we'd believe anything that slithers out of her mouth.
