This London attack is horrifying, tragic and awful. At least 40 people are reported dead so far.

With all that's occurred, wouldn't you think the terror alert in our country would be raised? And yet Reuters reports that US officials have "no immediate plan to raise the terrorism alert level."

Can anyone recall just prior to the November '04 election the brisk activity of this terror alert system? It was up, it was down, it was up again, etc. Tom Ridge recently came out saying he was against many of these alert raisings, and in fact many were based on shoddy/fake/little intel.

Yet, with the London bombings, no raising of the terror alert. Outrageous, and very telling.

UPDATE: Only now do they raise the alert. What took so long? It's certainly not an election year anymore....
