Does this NYC subway alert seem the slightest bit fishy to anyone else? They've supposedly linked the threat to al Qaeda operatives in Iraq. This after Bush going on this morning about how vital Iraq is in the war on terror . . . Call me crazy, but it just kinda seems like it might be an approval-ratings grab. And hey, I'll be the first to admit that I'm talking out of my ass, but it's just the first thing I thought of.
