I think CNN intended for the word 'target' to be read as a verb.

CNN's programming hits a double: Informing Islamofascist terrorists where we're vulnerable, and blaming the Bush admin. for not doing enough to keep us safe. Actually, this is the new dem. talking point, released on Sat.

"you'll get specific and essential insight on where the threats are -- what you can do to stay safe -- and whether government's got a clue."

That last bit is the part the terrorists will be interested in most.

If these are things that the average guy can fix, then I have no problem with it. But somehow, I suspect that these things are either going to be things that can't easily be fixed, or things that the authorities are best able to fix without our input.

If that's the case, then it's just going to help the terrorists.

Dear Darth:

Please be reminded that "CNN" has long been dubbed
"Communist News Network" but has been fighting neck and neck with the NYT and other MSM members for leadership in the category of late.

That this type of fear-mongering may only actually promote fear, panic and serious health challenges to our citizens is of no apparent concern to our government leaders is mute testimony to the inroads our enemies have made in abusing our freedoms of speech and actually using them against us.

Watch as the Freeper pack of angry ankle biters go into rabid response on this post...it'll do your heart good.

That nice of CNN to provide that kind of info for potential terrorists.

[I can think of a dozen potential targets in my general area. Many of them have only cursory security. We still have allot of vunerability within our infrastructure. I will decline listing my area potentials -- CNN can do their own footwork.]

Maybe CNN can work with the NYT, so the terrorists can get a printed copy of the information, just in case they miss something in the broadcast.

And CNN wonders why Fox News hammers them in the domestic ratings.

What bothers me most is that CNN will probably air this segment for world wide viewing. Every time I've left the country and tuned into CNN, I've been appalled at their anti-American programing. CNN is bad enough domestically, but their international broadcasts are downright treasonous.

Sigh ... I hope they identify the New York Times building as being vital to America, almost as important as CNN headquarters itself. If we lose either of those two landmarks, we'd be in a world of hurt. I don't know of a faster way that an emeny could cripple the US.

<disclaimer> Well, if CNN can do I, why can't I? Obviously I do not intend that anyone damage those buildings or initiate an attack on Americans anywhere. This was simply to illustrate a point.</disclaimer>

No matter what time you tune in, you'll get specific and essential insight on where the threats are -- what you can do to stay safe -- and whether government's got a clue. Tune in for 'Target USA' all day Monday, only on CNN.

The Clintoon network doesn't have a clue. Do terrorists get an extra virgin for watching this?

CNN is going to help their terrorist allies to understand what they need to do to make their attacks successful. They and the New York Times are so discouraged that they could not expose the police actions in the arrest of the terrorist in the UK that they are going to help as much as they can.

"Our vulnerabilities are pretty obvious to anyone with half a brain."

- That's why the MSM chose it as tomorrow's topic. However, it is an encouraging sign that journalists are starting to recognize and work within their limitations.

I know about First Amendment rules, but isn't this a situation where the Government can argue in court that the open broad-cast high-lighting such vulnerabilities can be viewed as incitement or even potential treason, there-fore subject to a gag rule.

We all know there are vulnerabilities, but why allow a rogue news agency to paint a road-map, connecting the dots for any terrorist cells in this nation? Why should we make it easy for terrorists?

As long as they think it helps Democrats, they don't seem to mind if it helps a few terrorists in the process. The only 'useful' public info CNN seems to promise here is on how to protect ourselves. Now that should be interesting to see what they come up with... I imagine they'll say it involves reporting suspicious activity, staying tuned to CNN, voting Republicans out of office, duct tape, etc.

This will not be news to terrorists, but it will terrify or "katrina-ize" the minds of folks who are just going through life without paying too much attention. This is aimed at demoralizing 'ordinary' Americans into believing that a) we are doomed, and b) it is Bush's fault.

Only one thing though: I'm sure most of this information is based on what the jihadist crowd has known for 20 years or more.

Particularly vulnerable--especially if the terrorist get their hands on a 1 kT improvised nuclear weapon--are major seaports, Union Pacific Railroad's Bailey Yard in North Platte, NE, BNSF Railroad's Barstow Yard in Barstow, CA, FedEx's major air cargo transit hub in Memphis, TE and UPS' major air cargo transit hub in Louisville, KY. Hit any of those and it will could affect the US economy for years.

Sheesh, look who's pointing the finger. THEY haven't got a clue & still talk as if we could negotiate with these idiots. If they would just leave the administration alone to do their job, it would be the most helpful thing the press could do.

as cnn gives target locations to the enemy, we should all be thankful that the most precious target of all will not be mentioned. thank you cnn for not giving up our 'un' building so that the forces of 'un' may protect the world from fox. cnn's protection of America has been above and beyond the call of duty. I think President Bush should recognize cnn for their protective programing. Without cnn's protective programing the terror cells would be only making a guess, but with cnn the terror cells can have current information. our 'drive by' media, you have to love 'em. /s
