Asked whether an invasion of Iraq might create more Al Qaeda terrorists, Mr. Powell replied indirectly, with a reference to the Al Qaeda network that already exists. "I would not like to see Al Qaeda going into the subways of New York or some other crowded facility in our nation," he said. -- from the New York Times.

Am I reading too much into this if I suggest that the terror-alert hype is going to build until Saturday, when the Bush administration and Mayor Bloomberg close down New York's subways because of a supposed threat, thereby stranding hundreds of thousands of would-be anti-war protesters in parking lots at Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, and elsewhere?
