Gut Feelings

How are we to interpret this?

Bush says that the war in Iraq has made us much safer than we were pre-9/11. But his head honcho of Homeland inSecurity has a gut feeling that a terrorist attack will occur this summer.

Appearing on a half-dozen morning TV shows Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff laid out a list of factors contributing to his "gut feeling" that the nation faces a higher risk of attack this summer: al Qaeda's increased freedom to train in South Asia, a flurry of public statements from the network's leadership, a history of summertime attacks, a broader range of attacks in North Africa and Europe, and homegrown terrorism increasing in Europe.

Oh, wait, I know. It means yet another Bush appointee has come to the realization that the war has been pointless.

I have a gut feeling we're screwed.
