Scare Tactics, part 1

According to U.S. News and World Report, Tom Ridge, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security under President Bush admitted that he “was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush's re-election, something he saw as politically motivated and worth resigning over. He blamed both false intelligence reports and overreaction to them for the unnecessary raised alerts, and said that it was not his choice to do so.

Thank goodness he has decided to drop out of his bid for the U.S. Senate in 2010. That will make it easier for Pat Toomey to beat Arlen Specter.
