  • Update #1: The terrorists were apparently “planning to smuggle hydrogen peroxide-based liquid/slurry explosives” (whatever that is) in the bottles, according to U.S. News.

    Lamont Heads New GOP Bogeymen Lineup

    RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman has released a video titled “From NDR to Ned Lamont: The Democratic Party’s Transformation From Strength to Weakness.” Its message is obvious. Its logic is ludicrous—i.e. that only blind adherence to Bush’s failed policies will make America safe. (More after the jump….)

    Brits Foil Terror Plot

    Scotland Yard has upset a terrorist plot to explode planes in mid-flight from the UK to the U.S.  As part of an operation lasting several months, authorities arrested 18 people and raised the threat level in the UK to critical, the highest possible.
