Before you post anonymous nasty comments I want to acknowledge that post 9-11 it is difficult for an administration to deal with supposed terror threats.
However, the criticism of the Bush administration post 9-11 was not for failing to hold national press conferences to terrify the nation by reporting no specific treats or even threats that "Bin Laden Plans Attack Inside US."
The Bush admin was criticised because they did NOTHING. They didn't warn the FAA, they didn't warn imigration, they didn't alert the airlines, they didn't alert the border patrols, they didn't alert /call in the FBI to rattle field offices for info or suspected activity. They did nothing.
Holding press conferences to spread fear and terror does not make any of us safer. Challenging all aspects of what is now Homland Security does.
The Brits have this one right.
