I ain't Nostradamus...



...But I have to say, within hours of posting my concerns about an imminent color-coded "incident" designed to ratchet up the fear levels, this "breaking news" hits:

New York subway system on alert

Same intelligence led to U.S. raid in Iraq, military source says

Mayor Bloomberg: "We ask that the public remain vigilant. If you see something, say something."

NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York City's subway system went under heightened alert Thursday after officials received information from the FBI about a "specific threat," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

A well-placed U.S. military official told CNN on Thursday that the same intelligence also led to a raid against suspected al Qaeda operatives in Iraq.

There were indications that a terrorist attack on New York's subway system is possible "in the coming days," said New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.


Gee, the same day Bush gives a propaganda speech about the need to continue the war in Iraq, who on Earth could have imagined anything like this happening?!

Professor,
You've been coming up with some very fitting pictures.

There was a big dip on WallStreet a couple days ago. What do they know?
