"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Did Bloomberg Get Punked?

As more information surfaces, it certainly appears to be the case:
An official from the Department of Homeland Security told CNN the agency had received intelligence regarding "a specific but not credible" threat to the subway system "in recent days." The official said the intelligence community concluded the information was of "doubtful credibility."

[...]

Bush said, "The level of cooperation between the federal government and the local government is getting better and better, and part of that level of cooperation is the ability to pass information on. We did and they responded." A Bush administration official said the threat to New York's subway system involved the use of explosives hidden in baby carriages, but added that he believes New York officials made the threat public, "out of an abundance of caution."

Bloomberg said the threat was "more specific as to target, timing," and "not the kind of thing that appears in the intelligence community every day." Law enforcement sources told CNN the threat information was passed along after an individual in Iraq took a polygraph test and, although he failed some sections of the test, passed the section pertaining to the information about the New York threat.
If so, why? Last I knew he was one of them.
