During this Christmas/Holiday Season the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has been putting out the word that "intelligence" points to a strong possibility that terrorists were planning several operation.
We were told by Homeland Security that although there were "strong indications," we should not be overly concerned and "not to change Holiday plans or trips."
Think about this: If these "strong indications" of terrorists activities during the holidays were actually truthful, where would expect the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano bo be located? Well ... dah ... she would be in the Control Center at the HS Headquarters. Right?
Well, that is not how it worked out. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was in Afganistan. Hmmm ...
Here we are on 1/1/2011 and no terrorist activities ... which is very good!
Bottom Line: We were told there was "strong indications" of big trouble and none happened. Sounds like the Department of Homeland Security worked well and "protected us from the bad guys."
There is an obvious hint that maybe the terrorist alerts from the HS department were designed more to enhance the prestige of Homeland Security, rather than protecting us from any actual threats.
