Simple Question

I got this in my email today, from CNN:
-- Al Qaeda is stepping up efforts to sneak terrorists into the U.S. and has rebuilt most of its capability to strike here, an intelligence estimate states, according to The Associated Press.
So if intelligence estimates this, are we doing something to prepare for it? Counter measures, perhaps?

You never hear about that part. It's as if they're trying to scare the poop out of us. If they weren't, they'd end with a line like "Authorities nationwide prepare to defend against the threat". Completely non-specific, yet totally optimistic. But they don't say that, which is why I believe that they're going with the "fear sells" concept.

Great, now I'm thinking of the dramatic chipmunk.
