Drudge being an asshole again

Drudge is reporting that ABC News is withholding a terror warning video for political purposes.

The terrorist claims on tape the next attack will dwarf 9/11. "The streets will run with blood," and "America will mourn in silence" because they will be unable to count the number of the dead. Further claims: America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda.
Which is to say it is all just a lot of bullshit. I can say that with all confidence because of this:
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, described analysts’ concern as “low” because it was not clear that the tape was recorded recently and because the man on the tape, who spoke in what appeared to be an American accent, mentioned no details. “It’s unclear what this tape is — even whether the person on the tape is an American,” one of the officials said.
That just warms my cockles. There is even more though:
The possibility of an al-Qaida attack in the days before next week’s presidential election has been widely speculated on, but U.S. intelligence officials said last week that they had no specific intelligence indicating there was a plot by al-Qaida to launch a strike designed to sway voting.
So, short story shorter, Drudge is hyping this crappy video of an a guy speaking with an American accent talking about 9/11 being dwarfed because we elected Bush so that we will elect Bush in defiance of that. At this point, I wouldn't even be surprised if it turned out to be a Republican congressman thigs have gotten so out of hand.
