Thank God we're fighting the war in Iraq! 

Otherwise, we might be in major trouble!

U.S. officials have obtained new intelligence deemed highly credible indicating al-Qaida or other terrorists are in the United States and preparing to launch a major attack this summer, The Associated Press has learned.

The intelligence does not include a time, place or method of attack but is among the most disturbing received by the government since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to a senior federal counterterrorism official who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Tuesday.

Come on! They're doing their best! Cut them some slack! After all, "there's no time, place, or method of attack." If there were, don't you think Bush would be "moving heaven and earth" to protect us?

Granted, all of this leakage is meant to innoculate us against bad news to come. It's really a win win situation: If nothing happens, that's proof Bush policies are working. If something does, well, "Don't say we didn't warn you."

The stupidity of it... Three years of underfunding and neglect, and a useless war that left us worse off before our true and now stronger enemies, the fundamentalists both foreign and domestic, and Bush is already setting himself up to weasel away from taking responsibility. Again.

Great news, though! They've dropped that stupid color coded alert system.
