What we've got here...

… is a failure to communicate. Either that, or its more Bush Administration bravado.

Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that terrorists may again attempt to hijack aircraft to carry out an suicide attacks similar to the one on Sep. 11.

However, the “Transportation Security Administration has alerted federal air marshals that as of Friday they will no longer be covering cross-country or international flights.”

Huh!?!?! Was it not cross-country flights, full of jet fuel, that the terrorists selected last time to carry out their attacks? Wouldn’t international flights hold similar attraction? So why are we reducing the security on the highest risk flights?

Anyone in the Bush administration care to explain this one? Or is this another one of Bush’s “Bring them on” challenges?
