Don Bacon, in his latest column
, calls our attention to the Dept. of Homeland Insecurity's ridiculous color-coded scare chart. The terrorist threat level is currently at yellow
for the nation at large and orange
for all domestic and international flights. But according to the government watchdogs
themselves, "At this time there is no credible information warning of an imminent, specific threat to the homeland."
Writes Bacon: "Does that make sense? Don't ask. Actually, it's not supposed to make sense except to make it clear to Americans that the government is in charge."
He goes on to explain the sobering implications this has for you, me, and every other American citizen.
