Terrorist Alert Increased to Purple

In an interview with The Associated Press, Acting Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Lester M. Crawford said Wednesday that he had been briefed about al-Qaeda plans uncovered during recent arrests and raids, but declined further comment about any possible threats.

“While we must assume that such a threat exists generally, we have no specific information now about any al-Qaeda threats to our food or drug supply,” said Brian Roehrkasse, spokesman for the Homeland Security Department.

That seems like kind of a general statement of concern on the part of the government agency charged with protecting us from terrorists attacks.

But the lack of specific threats didn’t stop Crawford.

No sir.

Crawford tells us that the possibility of such an attack was the most serious of his concerns about the increase in states and municipalities trying to import drugs from Canada to save money.

I’m not making this up. This isn’t from some sort of whacked out leftwing blog.

It’s from CNN. Right here.

Put a sock in it. Please.

Once again, the Bush administration has no specific information about any al-Qaeda threats, but they feel the need to “warn” us about the “dangers” of purchasing less expensive drugs from Canada.

I think it was the Bush administration’s Medicare Bill that prevents seniors, states, and local governments from saving money by purchasing drugs from Canada.

Now, it’s clear that they were just trying to protect us from al-Qaeda, not trying to protect the pharmaceutial industry’s profits.

Even the dumbest of us should be able to see though this one.

By the way, I hope that it doesn’t alarm you to know that, according to the official FDA biography, Dr. Crawford, the Acting Director of the Food and Drug Administration – the agency that is charged with the safety of our food and drugs, is not really a medical doctor, but has a degree in veterinary science… from Budapest.

Perhaps we should kick the alert status up a notch to purple.
