Sleuths at work

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Sep 12, 2003

Thursday's newspaper headline: Al Qaida threatens new strikes on the US.

Friday's newspaper headlines: US officials say al Qaida may be planning new strikes on the US.

Now are you more confident about our intelligence-gathering capabilities?

    This "marvelous" job of warnings from our officials does little to convince me they have as much "intelligence" and knowledge as does the secular media about who will be the next pope.

    I am getting a little (okay, a lot) frustrated with all the 'warnings' and 'alerts'. I suspect that just about every day some Al Qaida guy, somewhere, is threatening us and I know we have to be always vigilant. But, in the absence of specifics, what is different about all of these 'warnings'? Somehow I feel this is a 'CYA' deal so that if something does happen officialdom can declare: "Well, we did warn you...!"
