Skeletor and Homeland (in)Security

The Chicago Tribune had an article the other day on Skeletor's warnings of new al-Qaeda attacks against the US.
"I believe we are entering a period this summer of increased risk," Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune's editorial board in an unusually blunt and frank assessment of America's terror threat level. [snip] And he indicated that his remarks were based on "a gut feeling" formed by past seasonal patterns of terrorist attacks, recent al-Qaeda statements, and intelligence he did not disclose.
First of all, believing that the bush cabal has any understanding whatsoever of "intelligence" gives them much more credit than they deserve.
There have been reports already that suggest intelligence warnings at a similar level to the summer before Sept. 11, 2001 and that al-Qaeda may be mobilizing.
Oh, goody. Now the busheviks can ignore the upcoming PDB, "bin Laden Vows To "Do It Again," just as they ignored the first one.
"What do you think is going to happen to your business when a guy comes across the border with a phony document and blows up a target in Buffalo or Detroit?" he asked. "Do you think the American public is then going to allow the border to remain open?"

As opposed to when nineteen guys came across the border and blew up the WTC? Oh, right, those guys were all Saudis, and hence friends of Bandar Bush and dumbya. Besides, what the hell kind of terrist targets are they going to find in Detroit or Buffalo?!? They going to blow up the Joe Louis Arena? The Cheektowaga Wal-Mart?

"We have done a lot to degrade the enemy's capability," he said. "But the enemy has also done a lot to retool its capability...It leads me to feel we ought to be more vigilant."

These MO-rons couldn't be vigilant about anything (except stealing elections) if their very lives depended on it.

And to drive the point home, even the Christian Science Monitor thinks it's silly:
