MAYBE the damned new San Francisco Bay Bridge is so krappy and likely to fall down, that this is a way to blame it on someone other than California’s local politicians?

but with thoughts like that, it is clearly past my bedtime

First US city to think they're special. I heard yesterday that the Feds sent these general warnings to ALL major cities.

The way I read it this is not specific to SF but occurring all through the US. Either something big is really about to occur or the tail is wagging the dog. Or with our current leaders, both may be happening. Who knows

"Why would Al Qaeda target the most Islamist-sympathetic city in all of America?" My guess is because they are easily penetrated and by nature of their politics, like Boston, they are less able to sense clear and present danger such as the Marathon Bombers.

Blue states have a global reputation for weakness. Thus, AQ views them as easy targets. Notice how AQ attacks cities mainly in blue states, most notably during 9/11 and the Boston bombings.

"with all these terror alerts, I keep thinking about one of my favorite stories as a kid: The Boy Who Cried Wolf."

Maybe they've smartened up about the NSA and started a program of illusory attacks...which in themselves have a terrorizing aspect, weaken the image of America, and makes it look like al-Qaeda is astride a Strong Horse.

Or maybe they are probing just how effective the NSA actually is.

All the muslims moving into this country, even in small cities, and building mosques is for the mass attack that is coming. If just one muslim moved into some town of 30,000 it would be suspicious. But thousands are moving in every year and nobody knows where they work.

Perhaps they are utilizing both your options. Pretty soon, al Qaeda could get the entire USA shut down with some frivolous threats. They could do so without even using just one suicide bomber. Yet without a terrorist incident, al Qaeda can’t advertise, “we offer jihadists more bang for your bucks.”

Pray that there is no profiling done by the LEO’s.

Then, if an actual terrorist is captured, please insure that he/she/it doesn’t get water boarded. (Sarcasm off now)

As San Francisco’s very own KGO....is the source of the story that raises some interesting angles

So AQ which was “on the run” and pretty much a non-factor, according to Obozo, is now targeting major American cities as well as embassies.

If something terrible happens, do you think the media will assign blame to anyone besides Bush?
