From the Associated Press:

U.S. counterterror officials are warning of an increased risk of an attack this summer, given al-Qaida's apparent interest in summertime strikes and increased al-Qaida training in the Afghan-Pakistani border region.

On Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told the editorial board of The Chicago Tribune that he had a "gut feeling" about a new period of increased risk.

He based his assessment on earlier patterns of terrorists in Europe and intelligence he would not disclose.

"Summertime seems to be appealing to them," Chertoff said in his discussion with the newspaper about terrorists. "We worry that they are rebuilding their activities."

He's issuing a terror alert on a "gut feeling"?

Jesus, these people running the country are morons.

Pay no attention to the DC Madam scandal, the latest perjury by El-Turdo, or the Republican senators bailing on Bush. Be afraid, very afraid, and just remember if we stop fighting them over there, they will follow us home.
We g had some ex-CIA guy here telling us how Australia is a prime target. Then we have all those doctors related to the British would be bombers, with rumours of those bombers being 'detonated' fro Australian cell phones. Jeez, you can't even make a call on one here without problems.
I guess there are elections in the air.
Why not? The Decider bases most of his decisions on gut feelings - the exceptions being the instructions he gets straight from Jesus.
I think you hit it right on the head, Lew - they're still trying to sell fear. And he's not even saying he has any specific intelligence - just a "feeling" about it.

cartledge, I'm not surprised the boys running things where you are are trying the tried and true methods of "scare 'em to get 'em to vote for you". It was nice to see Gordon Brown handle the terror incidents in London and Glasgow w/ less hysteria than Blair. It was also nice to see the Brits give him high marks in polls for doing so.

That's a good one, abi - the words that come from Mr. Jesus (like "You must invade Arabia") Bushie takes down directly after his prayer sessions. Jeez, maybe we should stop electing Jesus freaks?
