Wag the Dog?

Keith Olbermann had an interesting story on Countdown tonight.

He examined 10 times in the past three years when at the height of bad news, criticism for the Bush Administration, or some political downturn, a "terror event" - a change in alert status, an arrest, a warning, etc. followed in the next few days.

You don't think the Bush Administration would use the threat of a terrorist attack for political purposes do you?

Of course not, right?
