It seems like its a no win situation. You broadcast that a threat is imminent. Nothing happens and you are accused of crying wolf. Really no terrorist is going to strike whne they know you know. But if you know and don't inform and something big happens you are accused of sleeping at the wheel.

whats the solution?

I honestly don't know, and for the reasons you gave. I DO know, however, that the current rainbow of alert levels is simply pathetic and meaningless.

Either there's a threat or there ain't. Period.

Elect Democrats. They are much smarter, and will figure it out. Really.

Damned if they do; damned if they don't.

It's better to be prepared than to have all of the after-the-fact finger-pointing again.
