By Charles Pugsley Fincher, A Spin-Off of

A furor swept through Washington yesterday in response to the news report that Tom Ridge's Sunday orange-alert terror warning was based on Qaeda surveillance from before 9/11 (see yesterday's cartoon) with some of it being from public sources such as the Internet. Many thought the timing of the warning was politically motivated to help the Bush campaign.

In response, Ridge said, "We don't do politics in the Department of Homeland Security." Trouble is that he said during his grim, warning conference on Sunday that the intelligence that made the alert possible was "the result of the president's leadership in the war against terror." (See Todd S. Purdum's news analysis in today's New York Times).
