3. Extraordinary coincidence!
The day after Cooper gets permission from his source to testify. Now that story will take a big backseat to all this. Fascinating.

4. US raising terrorism alert level for rail, metro (Code Orange)
http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/N07532815.htm

WASHINGTON, July 7 (Reuters) - The United States is raising the terrorist threat level for rail and mass transit systems, but not for airlines, after the bomb blasts that rocked London, a U.S. government official said on Thursday.

The official said the alert level for trains and subways would be raised to orange, which signifies a high risk of terrorist attack, from yellow, the mid-point on the five-point color-coded system.

Michael Chertoff, the secretary of homeland security, plans to hold a news conference at 11:45 a.m. EDT to discuss the bombings in London and give an update about domestic protective measures.

The terrorism alert level was last raised in August last year to orange for the financial services sector in New York City, northern New Jersey and Washington D.C., based on intelligence that al Qaeda was targeting specific buildings. It was lowered back to yellow on Nov. 10, 2004.

12. What trains?
Of course, if Bush gets his way, there won't be any passenger trains pretty soon on which to raise terror alerts.

14. Isn' this like saying "watch your step" to someone who just tripped?
We need alerts BEFORE the terrorism, idiots.

Too bad the alerts were really designed for campaigning.
