The NFL Dirty Bomb Threat

"A man has admitted he posted a fake bomb threat against National Football League stadiums in major U.S. cities as part of an Internet competition with a person in Texas to create the scariest terror scenario possible," according to CNN.

I guess he won the prize. Unfortunately the jackpot probably includes a free trip to a not very scenic place with substandard accomodations. Maybe the nexttime an al-Qaeda planner will run a contest like this to mask an actual attack attempt in a decoy operation. (Nothing follows)

The San Francisco Chronicle on the bigger ramifications:

"The Raiders are winless so far this season, and threats of death and destruction aren't likely to help ticket sales."

9-11 didn't have a decoy operation, and it would have raised the general alert. The smart thing to do right before an attack is to lull the American people with video tapes promising "peace in our time". Have the DNC send Patty Murray to the Afghan-Pakistan border to meet with Bin Laden and get photo ops with her shaking his hand just outside his new day care center for Muslim business women.

These are still very soft targets, and though this time it was a hoax...the security in these stadiums are not all good. There are no pat downs or searches allowed at Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium among others thanks to an ACLU lawsuit.
