Seems to me that the terrorists couldn't ask for anything better. One of the things they purportedly hate about us is our freedom. Here we have the US govt harassing US citizens instead of watching for danger. We have our liberties being eroded because "we're at war"...but even the Shrub says that this war will last for years. Martial law, anyone?
Perhaps in 2004 we'll be too much "on alert" to have an election.
