Tom Ridge on US terror alert: Code Orange

Did you see this?
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, today:
The U.S. intelligence community has received a substantial increase in the volume of threat-related intelligence reports. These credible sources suggest the possibility of attacks against the homeland, around the holiday season and beyond.

Recent reporting reiterates — and this is a constant stream of reporting — that al-Qaida continues to consider using aircraft as a weapon. And they are constantly evaluating procedures, both in the United States and elsewhere, to find gaps in our security posture that could be exploited.

Go over your family emergency plans, and if you haven’t developed one by now, please do so.”
