TERROR THREAT IS LOWERED TO ELEVATED IN OTHER WORDS ORANGE TO YELLOW OR HIGH TO SIGNIFICANT RISK

only a year's worth of confusion as far as the Dept. of Homeland Security is concerned...

...The nation's TERROR THREAT level was lowered to yellow, or "ELEVATED,"...May 30...financial TOLL on CASH-STRAPPED state and local governments...Significant risk...

...Homeland Security boosts national ALERT level...May 20...U.S. intelligence community indicates that al Qaeda has entered an "OPERATIONAL period worldwide" and might ATTACK within the United States...HIGH ALERT...

...The national TERROR ALERT lowered from "HIGH" to "ELEVATED" status on April 16, as the WAR in Iraq wound down...The THREAT level also was ELEVATED to orange for ...

...TERROR THREAT raised from 'ELEVATED' to 'HIGH'...February 7...increased intelligence information showing that al-Qaida is still determined to STRIKE Americans at home and abroad...

...TERROR THREAT lowered to ELEVATED...

...U.S. Raises TERROR THREAT Level to "HIGH"...September 10, 2002...symbols of American POWER and AUTHORITY, such as embassies, military facilities and national monuments could be possible TARGETS...terrorists might "lash out in even small strikes," including CAR BOMBINGS and other SUICIDE ATTACKS overseas...

The Homeland Security Advisory System is supposedly a means to disseminate information regarding the risk of terrorist acts to federal, state, and local authorities and to the American people. Though as others have pointed out, it is difficult to gauge the difference between a "high" risk and a "significant" risk, but surely we must do our best.

How quickly the Homeland Security Department forgets...

"Freedom is not an unlimited license, an unlimited choice, or an unlimited opportunity. Freedom is first of all a responsibility before the God from whom we come."

- Alan Keyes

The threat to liberty is exceptionally high. God, freedom, and man's responsibility have been swept aside. The funeral procession for sweet mother Liberty begins anew. Sons of Portsmouth, Newport, and Baltimore gather together, 1765 lives again.

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."

- The Tyrant, Abraham Lincoln

Oh how well did Abraham learn this lesson? Too well, I'm afraid. Some fates are far worse than death.
