coincidence #14?

By now we all know the drill: more bad news for BushCo & friends means another terror alert was announced today. This time it's a threat to the I-95 corridor which has caused a complete closure of the Harbor Tunnel and partial shut-down of the Fort McHenry. Anyone who's traversed the mid-Atlantic region, especially between the DC Metro area and NY knows how critical that section of 95 is and heavy the traffic along that stretch of road is. If the threat is credible, there were a lot of lives at stake - but that's a big "if".

ABC affiliate WJLA-TV in Washington is reporting that several individuals are in custody and are being interviewed by the Maryland/Delaware Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The Department of Homeland Security, however, has some doubts about the source's credibility. The FBI, meanwhile, is trying to locate several individuals mentioned by the informant. [ABC]

The tunnels have been re-opened and the traffic nightmare will continue, no doubt, for hours to come but the bigger question about coincidences will linger on.
