Bush: Terr'rr Terr'rr, 9/11 /911, Terr'rr.

n a speech to the National Endowment for Democracy on Thursday, President Bush claimed that ten terrorist plots have been foiled since the attacks of September 11, 2001. The White House went so far as to provide a list of these supposed plots, but senior law enforcement officials "questioned whether many of the incidents on the list constituted an imminent threat to public safety and said that authorities had not disrupted any operational terrorist plot within the United States since the 2001 attacks," according to the LA Times.

On Thursday, New Yorkers were warned of a terrorist plot to bomb the subways. Officials said this information came from an FBI source, though Homeland Security officials say the threat is of doubtful credibility.

All of this comes at a time that a CBS News poll gives Bush an all-time low approval rating of 37%, disapproval of the way Bush is handling the war on terrorism is at an all-time high, and Bush advisor Karl Rove has been called back to testify before the grand jury investigating the leak of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity to the press.

Surely it's merely a coincidence that when Bush's approval ratings are in the toilet and possible criminal charges may be brought against one of his top advisors, we start hearing the old chanting of terr'r terr'r terr'r, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11 coupled with new terrorism warnings. I'm sure this administration would never use the threat of terrorism for purely political purposes. And they certainly wouldn't dredge up 9/11 repeatedly for the sake of their polling numbers.

Just remember folks: terr'r terr'r terr'r, 9/11 9/11, they're going to blow up the subway. Have a nice day, and God Bless Americaâ„¢

Grand Jury testimony of Karl Rove leaked by Rove-ing reporter (fictional). Please keep my identity a secret. Double super Secret. I could call in and have my voice disguised or and my face blocked out. Please call me or send me an email if you plan to use this. Thanks.

Testimony of Karl Rove, the White House Deputy Chief of Staff (of the United States) [COSTUS]. How much will COSTUS cost us?
