Terror Warnings vs. Bad News for Administration


Juliusblog does something I've always wanted to do, but never had the time, nor energy. His research confirmed my suspicions:
Biltud, from Salon.com's TableTalk, posted a few days ago a series of correlations between past terror alerts and political events unfavorable to the Bush administration. I compiled all these correlations and organized them chronologically into a timeline. I also added additional news items and other instances that I found out, detailing the terror alerts over the last few years, and located the original sources for many of these news articles. Soon, Biltud and I started to research together all these occurrences, and more interesting "coincidences" started to appear. We finally built this timeline of terror alerts and how they relate to the news headlines of the days immediately prior to that very alert. I think it's very easy to see a pattern recurring.
Go to his site and read it for yourself. Especially check out the graph. Maybe it is all just a coincidence.
