Code Orange
So Tom Ridge, who, as of Friday, reports had leaving his post because he needed to get a job that would make him enough money to put his kids through college (guess the tax cuts didn't help him neither!), says today that yup the intelligence is three or four years old and was "updated as recently as January".

The only question now is whether he's committing career suicide or the Reeps are pushing him overboard in order to get the kind of clampdown they need come August 28, when a million protesters get to New York City. (There were only 6 arrests for protest-related stuff at the DNC.)

In the meantime, for all you Behold a Pale Horse types, note this:

The RNC has been classified by the Dept. of Homeland Security as a "National Special Security Event". This means Ridge and the Dept. of Homeland Security is adding Federal resources and coordinating with the NYPD, Secret Service, the FBI, and--whoa!--FEMA around planning for the RNC. The potential conspiracies boggle the mind!
