2. I mentioned this in another thread, but on Hardball this evening
Howard Fineman was mentioning Karl Rove's call to Joe Lieberman on Tuesday.

And he was wondering if Karl Rove said something to Joe Lieberman along the lines of "Don't you worry. The national climate will be changing soon." (a reference to the terrorist plot they announced today).

I think that's very possible.

3. Snow: Bush approved RED Alert Yesterday
Q When did the President first learn about this plot and the investigation into it?

MR. SNOW: Again, we're being a little careful on operational details. I think it's safe to say to what I said before, which is he certainly has been extensively briefed over the last few days as the operation that took place became more and more imminent.

Q Was part of that during the teleconference on Sunday?

MR. SNOW: Let's see, what day was Sunday, that was the 6th? Yes. Yes.

(snip)
Q Did you all know that this was going to break today, yesterday, when there was this massive response to the Connecticut primary, discussion of terrorism, al Qaeda?

MR. SNOW: I don't want to get into operational details. This was not -- however, it was not explicit -- let me put it this way, I don't want to encourage that line of thought. I don't think it's fully accurate, but I also don't want -- I know it's frustrating, but we really don't want to get too much into who knew what, where, when.

(snip)
Q But the President, himself, approved the red alert?

MR. SNOW: Correct. It was a recommendation by the Homeland Security Council, by Secretary Chertoff and others.

Q When did he approve it?

MR. SNOW: Yesterday.

4. Were not the Brits covering it since, at least, last December?
I read about that today on MSN. This was the culmination of a quite long going investigation. No perpetrators were even near an airport. But the spin helps out old Georgie and the neocons. What dorks....and we have Americans who actually need to believe their pathetic lies, however tragic it is for us all.
