America at War - politicized Terror Warnings

Byron York in National Review Online lays out a very plausible scenario if the Bush administration had failed to issue the latest terror warning and an attack had occurred.

The New York Times and Washington Post both have both backpedaled on their claims that the warnings were based on years old data and hence may have been politically motivated; reporting that information from a recently capture al Quaeda operative was deciding. Dating back to the release of Richard Clarke's book, the Left has blamed Bush for not "connecting the dots". Now they complain that they don't like the picture.
