Another Rove diversion: Saudi U.S. Embassy issues "Terror Warning"
Americans Warned of Attacks; Bomb Chemicals Reportedly Found
Wednesday, July 20, 2005

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,163087,00.html

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia As Interior Ministry officials announced the discovery of a suspected terrorist hideout containing large quantities of chemicals used to make explosives, a warning was issued for Americans in Saudi Arabia that a series of terrorist attacks may be in the pipeline, a spokesman at the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh (search) told FOX News on Wednesday.

The information originated from the American National Counter-Terrorism Center (search), the new hub for threat information in the United States.

"We urge people to be attentive," said State Department Deputy Spokesman Adam Ereli, who complimented the "closeness and aggressiveness" of the combined U.S.-Saudi efforts to go after militants in the kingdom.

Meanwhile, officials said they uncovered a reported militant lair near Riyadh in which they found bomb-making materials including fertilizer, ammonium nitrate and other chemicals. The threat information was vague, with no indication of when, where and how attacks would be carried out, but was considered credible enough to issue a warning. "Exercise caution and maintain good situational awareness when visiting commercial establishments frequented by Westerners or in primarily Western environments," the warning reads in part.

1. Yes, but his diversions can be deadly.
BTW - That's an atypically dignified picture of W. He looks almost fully human and sober.

4. And every time something happens
we have to remind the country that the chimpministration destroyed two intelligence operations: Plame and her group and Noor Kahn, the captured Al Qaeda operative who had flipped.

Those are the spoiled operations we KNOW about. I'm sure there are dozens more. Remind people of all the CIA/intelligence community resignations at the beginning of the year.

WE ARE NOT SAFER.
