A survey of law enforcement officials around the country revealed that they are given the same vague and useless information as the public. The survey concluded that most law enforcement agencies agree that the Bush Administration's playing of the "actual threat information which would enable you to meaningfully respond is, of course, classified" game, undermines the utility of the warning system . . .

This makes me feel so much better.
Update from The Fixer [19:10]:
President Handpuppet said today that America is safer today than when he took office. Fine. Then how come we're basically expecting a terrorist attack before the election? Wasn't that nitwit Ridge on TV just the other day saying we have an almost-orange terror threat? I guess we're safer because we know this, but then they tell us to go shopping. President Shit-for-brains, Governor Pataki, Mayor Trollberg, they're all tell us to spend money. I mean it's our responsibility to keep the economy going, right? Gotta spend that fucking tax cut.
