Threat level raised to Red or server for first time.
8/10/2006 6:33:06 AM EST

The Dept. of Homeland Security increased the threat level to severe for the first time today. The increased level was due to the discover by the government of a significant possibility of a Democratic victory in November thereby taking back the Congress and subjecting Americans to increased terra attacks.

The increase in security level was accompanied by dire warnings of imminent terra attacks on airlines and the rousting of mosques worldwide. The government wants the American people to know that should this threat continue to develop that it would, without delay, be prepared to suspend the elections in November and implement martial law to protect the American people
