Another terrorism plot foiled?

Just a few weeks ago we were told of the plot by the Miami 7 to blow up the tallest building in Chicago. Some say this group didn't have the resources to hold-up a local Seven-Eleven. Now we have reports of a plot to blow-up a tunnel in New York City. Again, we're told this was at the "aspirational" stage - not the operational stage.

Am I the only person who believes all this talk of terrorists plots has everything to do with the fact that we have an election coming up in a few months? Got to remind people that fear of those bad guys is our number one concern as voters. We sure don't want them thinking that the Iraq War is their top concern.

I've sure become very cynical about the "war on terrorism" that we're waging! Anyone out there share my cynicism?
