Preaching fear

The current administration continues to preach fear to reach their objectives, now saying that if Congress doesn't approve the "emergency" funding request, we are essentially inviting more terrorist attacks. They present statements like this one: " "It may be only a matter of time before al-Qaida or other groups attempt to use chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear weapons," Goss said at the Senate Intelligence Committee's annual hearing on threats. " as news when it's not. It's the same speculation that Homeland Security has been spouting since it was developed. Same timeliness ... Bush needs something and suddenly there's a terror alert. Haven't they heard of the boy who cried wolf?
