"OHMIGOD, WE'RE ALL GONNA ... hang on, what's this?"

Uh oh ... it's possible that the "101st Pants-Wetting Brigade" might have soiled themselves for nothing (all emphasis added):

NBC News has learned that U.S. and British authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the United States.

A senior British official knowledgeable about the case said British police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner.

Because, when it comes to dealing with terrorism, the proper strategy is to rush in prematurely and perhaps jeopardize the entire investigation. But an attack was imminent, right? Right?

In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.

This news flash brought to you by Depends, the official bladder control undergarments of the Blogging Tories. Depends -- when it's never too early to crap your pants in sheer terror.

This tactic of Apocalypso Now is certainly acquiring a "cry wolf" odeur.

Except in the sinuses of those who /want/ to believe in Satan. But isn't that pretty much the case down the line in all the movement conservative copies of the little 'red state book'? Only believe the information that supports what you want to be true?
