Wednesday: Days after the White House learns that the London terror plot will be uncovered, Cheney says Lamont victory will encourage "al Qaeda types."

--7:42 a.m., Today: The White House announces that the threat level has been raised to Red.

--10:54 a.m. (CDT): The President announces, on his way to a Wisconsin fundraiser for congressional candidate John Gard, that the arrests in London are a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation.

--12:26 p.m.: The RNC sends out a fundraising email penned by Rudy Giuliani saying In the middle of a war on terror, we need to remain focused on furthering Republican ideas more than ever before Please make your commitment felt with a financial contribution for $500, $250, $100, $50, $35 or $25 to the Republican National Committee today.

--2:53 p.m.: Bush official celebrates the terror plot. The AFP reports, "Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big, said another White House official, who also spoke on condition of not being named, adding that some Democratic candidates won't look as appealing under the circumstances.

--4:22 p.m.: The RNC follows with a statement attempting to elevate the war on terror above those who would crassly use it for politics sake: "On a day when American authorities are working with our allies to stop a global terror plot, instead of focusing on political attacks, we should focus on the fact that we are at war and need every tool to win the War on Terror.

3. If these guys had been working on their plot for eight months,
they must have had an inkling that Leiberman's time was up long ago! Or were they waiting to spring their attack just before the November elections.
