8. Timely, with what?
Terror plot foiled, no elections (at the moment) and no scandals (other than the usual); so how is it timely?

8/8/06: Lamont defeats Lieberman.
8/9/06: Terror attack successfully thwarted.

Who says that Lieberman's defeat helped the terrorists? For all we know, had Lieberman won his primary, that plot may have succeeded.

The message is clear: Vote Lamont if you want us to be able to protect ourselves against terrorist plots! A vote for Joe is a vote for Osama!

;-)

4. UK has raised their threat level to "critical"
which is 'attack imminent'.

I expect by 5am, we'll be hearing about this 24/7 with Wolfie on it!

The person on CNN at the moment is saying that raising the threat level to Critical is the most concerning, since they have arrested people.

9. Wasn't there security before this "foiled plot"?
Takes bombs to blow up stuff. Wonder if their plans were
as sophisticated as the "homegrown terrorists" in Miami.

11. so assuming this is real....
...and keep in mind, I'm not saying it is real. Anyway, if it is a real threat, it's a little unclear how much of a threat it would have been.

I'm probably not saying this correctly but....it just seems to me that if a plane blows up over the atlantic ocean, yes it would be bad if all of the people on the plane died. But at least they would not be flying into buildings killing even more people!

17. Who were the dozen or so homeless kids in Florida?
Nobody. Just another excuse for the Bush Crime Family to make the "bad press" go away. Just like now. They don't want Joenertia to be the lead story on the Sunday talk shows, so it's time to bring back some fake terra. :scared:
