We of course hear this every holiday travel season. And so far, none come true. That's a good thing of course. But it does make you wonder about these threats that always make big news for the holidays, but which never materialize. Here's the latest, and I hope its as bogus as its predecessors.
Al Qaeda's Goal: Cripple Amtrak's N'east Corridor
If Al Qaeda terrorists have their way there will be chaos and mayhem here this holiday season, a mass transit bomb plot that would probably affect all the subway and train lines at Penn and Grand Central stations.
I can't help laughing about the call back to the evil Al-Qaida secret command post buried deep in the Kush mountains.
Terrorist: "Obama, the plot is in place. We destroy Amtrak this week!"
Obama: "Amtrak? Why are we bombing Amtrak? If we just leave it alone it will go broke and destroy itself!"
Obama: (aside after putting down the cell phone), "Ah, its so hard to find good terrorists these days."
