Normal How Likely Is A Terrorist Attack In The US This Weekend?

Since it's the weekend before the election....

A radio talk show I listen to has mentioned hearing chatter about the Michigan/Michigan State game as a possible target, and there are already rumors that the terror alert will be raised.

Just wanted opinions here.

It is likely that the terror alert will be raised, which has little to do with the likelihood of a terrorist attack.

I don't either, but the way these jerks are talking we'll all be toast.

One of them is a Bush supporter as well, so no wonder he's adding fuel to the fire.

Perhaps security measures in place have made the likelihood of an attack go down significantly

Pop Angel, I noticed in you live in Detroit. No wonder you heard about the U of M/MSU game. It can be adjusted to anywhere. NYC is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first subway ride today -- makes the subway a target. The topped off WTC7 the other day -- its a sign for terrorists to attack.

Spain got attacked before its election so it's possible. But how is it any different from "We attacked Iraq so they'll attack us." or "The conventions will be attacked to disrupt democracy." My biggest fear is that if there is an attack, it will be used as an excuse to delay the election. No matter what, this election has to take place on Tuesday -- the only exception is if we are attacked on Nov. 2. Spain proved we can go on after an attack and we need to.

Well what happens if this story is only partially true?
A major network holding back a story re terror to manipulate the election?
ABCNEWS HOLDS TERROR WARNING TAPE

**Exclusive**

In the last week before the election, ABCNEWS is holding a videotaped message from a purported al Qaeda terrorist warning of a new attack on America, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The terrorist claims on tape the next attack will dwarf 9/11. "The streets will run with blood," and "America will mourn in silence" because they will be unable to count the number of the dead. Further claims: America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda.

ABCNEWS strongly denies holding the tape back from broadcast over political concerns during the last days of the election.

The CIA is analyzing the tape, a top federal source tells the DRUDGE REPORT.

ABCNEWS obtained the tape from a source in Waziristan, Pakistan over the weekend, sources tells DRUDGE.

"We have been working 24 hours a day trying to authenticate [the tape]," a senior ABCNEWS source said Wednesday morning.

The terrorist's face is concealed by a head dress, and he speaks in an American accent, making it difficult to identify the individual.

US intelligence officials believe the man on tape may be Adam Gadhan - aka Adam Pearlman, a California native who was highlighted by the FBI in May as an individual most likely to be involved in or have knowledge of the next al Qaeda attacks.

According to the FBI, Gadahn, 25, attended al-Qaida training camps and served as an al-Qaida translator.

The disturbing tape runs an hour -- the man simply identifies himself as 'Assam the American.'

Wouldn't stealth be a part of any plan to 'make the streets run with blood'? Why advertise their intentions?

because it pays to advertise -- at least come election day when enough people are freaked out and vote Bush. I don't think it's a coincidence that the person on this tape has an American accent.
