It couldn't have happened at a better time

for Obama?

The question on Nightline survey...

Does a terrorist threat this close to election help serving Presidents poll ratings?

Depends on how he handles the situation or your genes.

Possibly of help to the President,

but not the Democratic Party I suspect.

But our guys didn't find it...did they?

All we did was react. What remains to be known is the real extent of the threat and it's probability of success if no discovered. I suspect...and it's already been postulated...that this may have been more a decoy than a cause to DUCK!!

Not heard that

but you may be right. Anything is possible.

I doubt it though. Apart from Saudi intelligence there are reports in UK newspapers that MI6 was also involved, and as we all know, intelligence agencies never get involved in political matters of other nations, Happy

Perhaps just media spin

current affairs

its not guns. its not politics. the american people are missing the point. most people are so wrapped up in the tricky misleading media, the techno-age is misleading most of us. we are slaves to misinformation from the media outlets. people are generally under informed. i can bring a more truthful perspective to these topics. stop fooling the people with ********. it is harmful to all of us.

How on earth does this qualify as...

"political matters of other nations?"

I should HOPE the intelligence agencies are working on terrorist threats against the west. That's what we are paying them for.

Still a war you know.

From what I've been hearing...

This was a "live" threat, not a test. Whoever uncovered it, kudos to them.
