    From aljazeera.net:

    Dean warns that 'terror' claims could be used for political ends

    Former governor and presidential candidate Howard Dean criticized the suspicions or "terror warnings" for New York and Washingto as "unhelpful" on Sunday.

    In a televised interview, Dean was sceptical of the warnings issued by U.S. authorities, questioning the usefulness of calling on citizens to look out for "suspicious" vehicles.

    However, he said there was an advantage in the current situation in naming the specific threat to the region, saying that usually the warnings were too vague and poorly substantiated.

    The Democratic party politician expressed concern that the subject of terrorism might be abused during an election campaign to make political gains.
    ____________________________________________________________

    I agree with Howard Dean. These terrorist alerts and warnings are nothing but a political ploy hatched by the Bush administration and his re-election operatives that serve a two-fold purpose: (1) to give the public the impression that Bush is "protecting them"... and (2) to keep them in the media forefront...and don't forget, the Republican National Convention starts Aug. 30 in NYC, and they're anticipating hundreds of thousands of protesters...

    In addition to this, Tom Ridge, the head of Homeland Security, is resigning...

    Something smells funny...

    I've been suspicious of this administration for the past 3 years (the 1st year I just didn't like them), and I see no reason to stop now.
