1. Actually, it's not
It's raised to red only for US flights bound to the UK...

5. You're right, when I heard Chertoff announce it....
I heard it completely out of context and assumed it was a blanket national alert.

I'm sure it was phrased for the hysteria value :silly:

2. Remember, only the GOP can protect you from terror.
It's interesting that as soon as the polling flip-flopped and showed adults regard the Dems more trusted "to do a better job handling the U.S. campaign against terrorism," 46% to 38%, we have another fog and phony show staged on all our 4x3's.

6. Chertoff and Gonzo were such drama queens at their
little press conference. Such a contrast to the more reassurable Brits.

8. They both were smirking and smiling during the conference
It looked downright cynical.
