- Federal law enforcement terror bulletins have become as much a part of the holiday season in the past decade as egg nog and department store Santas.
But this year, which ends amid a heightened concern over terror, is a little different. A Department of Homeland Security bulletin sent to law enforcement nationwide Thursday says that federal authorities worry terrorists will try to rattle Americans by attacking during the holidays, and lists concerns including car bombs, trucks ramming crowds and a Mumbai-style small arms attack.
This is the new reality. It's amusing how the media buys into these warnings now that a democrat is in charge unlike when they were ripping Bush and accusing him of using the terror alerts as some sort of election ploy or a sop for boosting sagging poll numbers.
