Homeland Security on red alert

Homeland Security is now on red alert after the British foiled a new plot to blow up planes flying across the Atlantic from the U.K. to the U.S.
LONDON (AP) -- British authorities said Thursday they thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the United States using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage. Security was raised to its highest level in Britain, and carry-on bags were banned on all flights. Huge crowds backed up at London's Heathrow airport as officials searching for explosives barred nearly every form of liquid outside of baby formula.
This marks the first time since the terror level alert system that it has gone to code red.

I hate to bring politics into this, but let's face it: all current events affect politics. Politically this is great for Republicans. With guys like Ned Lamont - a guy who's been compared politically to French Prime Minister Jacque Chirac - winning the endorsement of Democratic Senators from Harry Reid to Hillary Clinton to John Kerry to Ted Kennedy, it will be very difficult for the American public to take them seriously on the issue of defense.

In other words, the more terrorists the free world captures, the better for Republicans in November.

Y'know, that's really sad, but nonetheless so true...
