Good god, first Cheney “A Vote for Kerry is a vote for terrorists”, and now Tom Ridge saying Terrorists Hope to Disrupt Election. Note there really isn’t news here, it’s more scare tactics:
Terrorists still hope to disrupt the U.S. democratic process even though the presidential nominating conventions and other high-profile gatherings this summer went off without incident, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said Tuesday.
Threat reporting over the last several months has been “consistent, general and credible” and indicated the al-Qaida network is trying to push ahead with its plans, Ridge said.
Although large events this summer were not attacked, he said, “that in no way diminishes the level of vigilance, awareness and concern that we have during this entire process.”
