Americans are not safer

Proving Howard Dean's point, the Office of Homeland Security raised the terror threat level to Orange today.

Ridge cited reports that Osama bin-Laden's terrorist network is trying find holes in U.S. aviation security, and that "extremists abroad" are anticipating attacks that will rival or exceed the scope of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The government elevated the threat level, last raised in May, after U.S. intelligence agencies "received a substantial increase in the volume of threat-related intelligence reports," Ridge said.

I really think this whole color coded system is silly. But that's for another post.

I thought that capturing Saddam Hussein was supposed to make Americans safer? Who is this Osama bin Laden fellow they keep mentioning? I thought we already captured all the insane dictators who wanted to kill Americans?

It's not that I'm not impressed by Hussein's capture. I just don't think he was the one we should have been looking for.
