    Browsing CNN this evening, and stumbled upon this article. If this is true, I would expect airport security to be raised to over-reaction levels in NYC and Washington, as well increased police/swat presence in those cities. Just take a look at this video from the Denver DNC in 2008. Look at the roving police squads.

    Yes, kids, it's never too early for our dear leaders at the DHS to ramp up the terror!!!!!!!

    But wait, what's that you say?

    Apparently someone is planning on using car bombs to target bridges and tunnels. Not planes. Not 6 year old girls. Not shoes. Not Depends.

    No Credible Threat is now Credible, but Unconfirmed Threat :rolleyes:

    Oh, and as a bonus, all of the key catch phrases are there:

    Out of an abundance of caution :rolleyes:
    Don't panic :rolleyes:
    See something, say something :rolleyes:

    All indications are that come Sunday we will be at a fear fever pitch! I can't wait!!!!

    With this kind of intel let's cancel all air travel, keep our cars in our garages, hide in our basements and suck our thumbs until the 20th anniversary... Btw, I'm still flying on Saturday, 9/10/11 and my only fear is the next hurricane.

    I tell you, if I had plans to fly this weekend (and lack thereof has nothing to do with the date, only with planning), I'd be fearing TSA. Aaaannnnnddd that's about it.

    Also from the CNN report:
    Great, just great - so anyone on a cell phone, taking pictures, looking twice at anything, reading a magazine about airplanes, etc will be considered a threat this weekend. I would post a sad head-shaking emoticon if there was one...

    I realize that this is the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but it seems like we are stuck on the past, rather than any accomplishments since then. Yes, we should remember those who died, especially those aboard UA93, however we need to stop fearing the worst every time 9/11 rolls around.. Just look at this spread from our local news!

    I mean, seriously, with all due respect, terrorists don't give a flying leap about Kansas City, or anywhere else outside of places like NYC, DC, Chicago, LA, maybe a few others, a handful at best. I'm sure it's a nice place to raise a family and there are good people there and all. I imagine the "bad guys" don't even know it exists.

    Those people beating the war drums need to take a few days off. Remember 9/11 but stop with all of this calling out every LEO and others for this show of farce that has started.

    Watching CNN, they're showing footage of the vehicle checkpoints in the city.. I also saw photos of TSA searching bags :rolleyes: There was a sign that said you don't have to consent, but you would have to leave if you chose to do that.

    I saw that yesterday. It was almost like they had a phrase generator.
