homeland security claims threat is not credible
Published on October 18, 2006 By Sean Conners aka SConn1 In War on Terror
The headline pretty much says it all. It may be much ado about nothing, But the department of homeland security has notified the NFL and the individual teams that there is a threat to explode 7 "dirty bombs" at games this weekend or "soon."

The 7 cities being targeted are New York, Miami, Atlanta Cleveland, Seattle, Oakland and Houston.

Publicly, homeland security is calling the threat "not credible." Yet they have been prepping the cities and having them increase security.

Interesting that these come out now. Is it a fake, is it real or is it just more "election season politics?" We shall see I guess.

UPDATE:*** turns out, it was a fake, orchestrated by some kid in washington state.

They are probably rigging up wardrobe malfunctions for all the half time shows.

You can tell it is a fake. They mention Oakland. Why bomb an empty stadium?

could be either.

It does remind me of the situation in Oklahoma City last year.  Stadium Security turned a man away from a few gates because he didn't have a ticket.  He did, however, have a bookbag.  The police later arrested him while he sat at a bus stop... it was full of explosives.

This never made more than a quick blurb on local news, then was forgotten... or just deemed not "newsworthy" by the incompetent fools of the press...

Either way, it makes you wonder doesn't it.

i'm mortified by your backhanded suggestion something as serious as a barely credible threat of a possible terrorist attack on multiple nfl temples scheduled for 'soon' might possibly be used to gain political leverage.

if that were the case, why hasn't homeland security elevated threat levels all along rather than just this one since about this time in 2004?

Either way :
If they notify, it's politics.
If not and something happens - "What did they know & when did they know it?"

I don't think the "kill the stinking American infidels" crowd has given up.
