    But they don't have much to go on other than shoot-the-messager.

      And not one substantive responsive to anything among them.

      So, do you think this terror alert is a fake alert, designed to distract from issues raised by Snowden and Greenwald?

        It's speculation either way.

        Another possibility is that the NSA hyped the chatter to distract attention and solidify their position with congress.  Of course there is no way to verify this either, but it seems plausible.

          Um, yes, there is -- it's called EVIDENCE.  The Bushies ADMITTED that the terror alerts were politically-motivated.  That's evidence.

          So, where is there ANY evidence that Obama is doing the same thing?  Hint:  There is none.  That's what pushes the suggestion that this alert is a fake-out by the Administration into the realm of conspiracy theory.
