<blockquote>Senior U.S. intelligence officials tell ABC News new intelligence suggests a small al Qaeda cell is on its way to the United States, or may already be here... There is no credible evidence of an imminent threat, however... - <a href=http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2007/07/al-qaeda-cell-i.html>ABC News</a></blockquote> And, of course, we can't discount Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff's 'gut feeling' about a new "period of increased risk". Of course, that gut feeling could be a touch of food poisoning. Now, we should absolutely not discount Al Qaeda or its intentions. We should be hunting down its operatives and capturing or killing them. But if those operatives are actually here, we need to ask, "Why has Bush been asleep at the wheel and why is Osama still breathing?" We should also be asking, "Why do these terrorist alerts come up when Bush's approval ratings take another hit?"
