The White House sees the Red Alert as an opportunity to score political points
But let me let an anonymous White House official do the talking here.
Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big," said another White House official, who also spoke on condition of not being named, adding that some Democratic candidates won't "look as appealing" under the circumstances.Disgusting and despicable. To the Bush Administration, terror plots are God's gift on Earth because then they could turn around and use them to paint Democrats as defeatocrats and cut-and-runners. They could use it to scare people into voting Republican. While the British do an excellent job in capturing terrorists before they carry out their plots, all what we do is hype up the terror alerts so that they become looked upon with suspicion as nothing more than political stunts to boost the president's sagging poll ratings. Truly a sad day...when the administration cannot hide its pleasure at seeing a terror plot unfold so that they can say that they ARE doing a good job.
