umm, Sir, she's been in a US detention center for two months"

"One of the Chinese nationals sought for questioning in connection with an unspecified, unconfirmed threat against the city of Boston has been in U.S. custody for more than two months, the FBI said on Saturday. "

maybe they should have used some of 20 million spent on unaugural security to find out unspecifically, where the unconfirmed terrorists actually are..

it get's better.....
"It appears at this time that Mei Xia Dong's motives for entering the U.S. may have been for economic reasons," the FBI statement said. "The investigation thus far does not tie her to any terrorist group."
Say what???

Our whole situation now is just so effing unbelievably bad.

We have millions spent on a lavish inaugural, while victims of a tsunami still pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. We issue national alert bulletins for Chinese people, based on an anonymous tip, and don't even realize that we already have one of them in detainment -- for two months! Not only that, the person we've been detaining for two months is being held on... what? Nothing substantive! (that we've been told)

What's going on here?

I think that they employed a psych tactic in order to try and justify the enormous amount of $ spent on unaugural security. The fact that the city the alleged terrorists targeted was Boston.... I mean, why would a terrorist group target Boston, when he/she could go after the big shebang, DC? It doesn't make sense, but it is enough to scare those who are afraid of "the others." Which would then justify spending all of that $ on sharpshooters, et al, and hopefully quelch any negative response from a questioning public.

But then, someone in the WH was dumb enough to invite Kid Rock to the In party, and to nominate Kerik, w/o checking him out, so maybe they are just really stupid. I don't know which option is more frightening.
