And they're going to let it play out again....just like last time

Planning to fly anywhere this summer? I am...and now I wonder if I should make a will:

A secret U.S. law enforcement report, prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, warns that al Qaeda is planning a terror "spectacular" this summer, according to a senior official with access to the document.

"This is reminiscent of the warnings and intelligence we were getting in the summer of 2001," the official told ABCNews.com.

U.S. officials have kept the information secret, and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said today on ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" that the United States did not have "have any specific credible evidence that there's an attack focused on the United States at this point."

As ABCNews.com reported, U.S. law enforcement officials received intelligence reports two weeks ago warning of terror attacks in Glasgow and Prague, the Czech Republic, against "airport infrastructure and aircraft."

The warnings apparently never reached officials in Scotland, who said this weekend they had received "no advance intelligence" that Glasgow might be a target.

Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff declined to comment specifically on on the report today, but said "everything that we get is shared virtually instantaneously with our counterparts in Britain and vice versa."

Unlike the United States, officials in Germany have publicly warned that the country could face a major attack this summer, also comparing the situation to the pre-9/11 summer of 2001.

A bunch of would-be ninja wannabees talk about blowing up the Sears Tower even though they've never been to Chicago. Another bunch of losers talks about attacking Fort Dix -- a military base full of armed soldiers -- and the Administration crows about thwarting a terrorist plot. An often homeless guy in New York talks about setting fire to the JFK pipeline, and it's Elect Rudy or Die.

But if there is a report warning of "spectacular" al-Qaeda attacks this summer, and it's being downplayed by the Administration, what else can we think from this beleaguered bunch but that they'll let it happen again, so that this time they can get the war with Iran that they want so badly?

We've been here, we've done this. Are we going to let them get away with it again?
