The next terrorist assault on the United States is likely to come through relatively unsophisticated, near-simultaneous attacks -- similar to those attempted in Britain over the weekend -- designed more to provoke widespread fear and panic than to cause major losses of life, U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials believe.See the part I bolded?

Let me see...why would they ever want to distract us with more fear-mongering? Ummm...could it be the upsurge of interest in impeachment?
Could it be the groundswell of outrage over the Libby issues, the Iraq fiasco, and the countless other scandals that come to light nearly hourly?
