Well, it's official. What we all thought was happening, really was. I've been called a wingnut, paranoid leftist commie for stating that I thought the terror alert levels went up when the Preznit needed a bounce. But guess what? Now, even Tom Ridge admits it! More below the fold.
According to the USA Today article (whose url is above), Ridge says that he often disagreed with Admin officials who wanted to raise the alert level on flimsy evidence. That's interesting, because on the "Daily Show" just last week, Jon Stewart asked him that very question about the alert levels, and Ridge said that they never did any such thing! Not to mention all the times before,during, and just after the election he denied it!
My personal opinion is that he's covering his ass! He figures it's going to get out somehow, so why not get it out there now. That way, when it finally does blow up, he can always say that he admitted it first. Lying piece of pond-scum!
