    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

WASHINGTON - The top official in charge of analyzing terror threats did not cut short his ski vacation
after the underwear bomber nearly blew up an airliner on Christmas Day, the NY Daily News has learned.

Leiter's decision to stay close to the ski slopes instead of his headquarters - ground zero for defending the
nation against terror - has raised eyebrows among intelligence officials, who have been scrambling since
Dec. 25 to figure out what went wrong and plug the holes.

"People have been grumbling that he didn't let a little terrorism interrupt his vacation,"

NCTC director Michael Leiter remained on ski slopes after Christmas Day airline bombing attempt

Pray tell us what BUSH was to do? Rush to Airforce 1 and commence an nuclear strike? And strike whom? Bush did alot of stupid thing's, But he kept us safe and took the fight to the terrorist. These assclown's arent doing jack squat.

So you liked Kerry better than Gore? That takes a twisted view of reality.

This whole event seemed like a half-a**ed diversion. It started with the inept genitalia bomber, then the mishandling of the bomber followed by the meek and tepid response from the gov.
