“The FBI and Department of Homeland Security today issued an analytical ‘note’ to U.S. law-enforcement officials cautioning that al-Qaida terrorists have in the past expressed interest in attacking public buildings using a dozen suicide bombers each carrying 20 kilograms of explosives.
Authors with the U.S. Office of Intelligence and Analysis added that they have ‘no credible or specific information that terrorists are planning operations against public buildings in the United States.'” (Red more from MSNBC)
Okay, multiple choice. This is primarily:
a) a distraction from the fact that the $700 billion has been stolen by banks hasn’t helped.
b) preparing for the day when torch and pitchfork carrying citizens arrive at Federal buildings to inquire about their money. This type of news will allow them to more easily be associated with terrorists.
c) attempting to shift the debate toward security, the issue on which McCain best competes with Obama.
d) preparing to convince America that the “terrorist attacks” about to occur, which will keep Bush in office, or prevent Obama’s election, or result in martial law, or further expand government power, are the work of bearded men in caves.
e) other. (please specify)
P.S. The FBI’s mandate is to regulate interstate commerce. How did everything become their business?
