Color My Manipulated Fear Level Orange

I know enough history to have been keenly aware that from about 2003 on the Bush administration was using those color coded terror alerts to manipulate the public and keep this Country in a constant state of  fear for political benefit.

It was reveled today that former Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge wrote in his upcoming book that Attorney General John Ashcroft and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld argued in favor of raising the threat level by noting the correlation it had with Bush’s approval rating.

Noting the correlation found between increases in the threat level and the president’s approval rating, Mr. Ridge writes, “I wondered, ‘Is this about security or politics?'"

Thank you I guess Tom Ridge for admitting being "aggressively pressured" to raise it  and being morally outraged by it.
