They've cried "WOLF" so often, the credibility is gone.
And this is probably THE WORST THING this administration and their allies have done to this country:

We don't trust a damn thing they say.

Is this latest terrorist plot real? Probably. Possibly. Who the heck knows?

At this point, any member of this administration could tell me, "THE SKY IS BLUE" and I would automatically assume they were lying through their teeth.

Its a knee jerk reaction based on being lied to with "sincerity" and "skill" -- I now know they are UNTRUSTWORTHY SCUM, and their CREDIBILITY IS GONE.

They have shattered the trust of the American people. The only ones who "believe" already believe in other obvious lies (Weapons of Mass Destruction? Kerry as a Coward? War on Terror?) so fervently that I frequently find myself questioning not only their patriotism, but also their sanity.

Again, I repeat myself: I don't know if they are telling the truth anymore. Frankly, I don't give a damn.

I just want them *OUT* of *MY* house!

3. Hopefully, this is the final straw...
If they piss off traveling business people & make it even more miserable for them, we can most definitely count on changes in government in November. The only travelers who will put up with this kind of crap are the ones who travel once a year. And the airlines don't make money off of them. We can only hope that they do decide to implement a "no laptop, no cell phone, no electronic devices" on board as the UK has done because that will most definitely seal the deal.

5. yes
I don't even think there is "probably" something to it. And if there was - I expect they were behind it.

And at any rate - if it were real - with real "terrorists" - I wouldn't blame them anyway. Look at what our bombs are doing. You can't expect to bomb the hell out of people and not expect anything in return. To think that is arrogance and the idea of privilege - of the highest order.

BushCo are the worst terrorists and Israel is competing for the prize.
