    Isn't it convenient that we raise the terror threat level for NYC right before the convention based on 4-year-old information. If Bush is willing to play politics simply to avoid the inevitable tear gas convention that was coming, where would he stop?

    I think the bigger coincidence is that the terror level was raised right after the dem convention so as to quell any extra media attention. But then again it might not. But having the whole terror level system to begin with, will ALWAYS result in the questioning of the timing. And even if Bush is moral and does not use the system politically, i do not trust future politicians to use it in such a manner. Government should not be granted such power because of the great potential for abuse.

    And yet if there was an attack with no terror alert, who would be the first ones bitching? :trolls:
