p1: the Ad in the URL is just fab. You gotta Love that sort of
approach to confusing the children... But there is of course
the current 'culture of FreakOut' amongst people who have spent
most of the last fifty years intent upon being totally unaware of
the consequences of 'low intensity warfare' and what 'collateral
damange' can mean to them. Hence the new and Improved - we have
the UnterStumpenFumblerDerVolksGrenidier who has yet to establish
any gradiants of 'National Threat Level' - beyond the current
binary 'off or HIGHEST STATE of ALERT'. Coupled as some have noticed
with the Ill-timed 'political actions' such as the Hoax Anthrax Attacks
and the recently fumbled JDL actions.
That the Nice agent from the DOD was willing to clarify that they
were merely closing out a 'tip' tells you that the DOD was tipping
all of its cards - and that they have to follow up certain classes
of 'tips' - just as the Secret Service has to run to ground any
reports of 'threats' to 'secured persons' - and that yes, you can
get to meet with your local Secret Service persons by advocating
things like irradicating the head of state. It's a part of the Job.
Nothing person, hardly even the wonderChild of Political Repression
that at times these things get fobbed off as.
I should Know - I pissed off the local 'chief of police' of a small
college town by not kowTowing to his personal sense of Patriotism,
but hell, the Idiot didn't have a DD214, no time in the field, and
not a bloody leg to stand on when trying to sell himself as 'pro military'
