One good thing about 2005: No longer shackled by an election, the Bush Administration dropped all pretenses -- and terror alerts -- for 2005.
There was one "heightened state" in 2005 -- in October. Remember? New York officials said there was a bomb threat to the subway system. The info later proved false, but it came out on Oct. 6, just after news that Karl Rove was being hauled back before a grand jury in Traitorgate. Since then, all quiet on the Eastern Front.
Where did all the terror alerts go? Are the scaremongers tuckered out?
