  •  the distinction I'm drawing (4+ / 0-)

    The statement "some terror threats were exaggerated for propaganda purposes" requires a significantly lower degree of proof than "all terror threats are exaggerated or  manufactured for propaganda purposes."

    Even during the heart of the post 9/11 Bush WoT days, I don't think anyone could have reasonably asserted that there were no legitimate terror threats.  Just yesterday, however, in response to the the latest Greenwald "bombshell" there were numerous comments that a bogus terror warning would be forthcoming to support the NSA.  Making this claim  presupposes both the ability to know everything the NSA knows and the ability to know everything the NSA will know in the future, something the NSA itself does not even know.  It's nonsensical.
