Just in time for the holidays, your newest dose of Homeland Stupid:
Federal authorities have received a “plausible but unsubstantiated” report that al Qaeda may have discussed targeting transit systems in or around New York City, the Department of Homeland Security said.
So what? Every self-styled security expert who has surfaced in the press or broadcast media for the past eight years has talked about the possibility that some one, somewhere, might target public transit.
Hell, it’s been done already.
It would be foolish to think that evul dooers haven’t had the same thoughts and maybe even voiced them.
Let’s just hope that, if intelligence actually learns something substantiated, the President has the brains to pay attention. This time.
