Apparently the terror alert is back down to yellow. Party in the streets! But cautiously!

They say the previous level of orange "may be serving as a deterrent during increased awareness of possible terrorist incidents." Really?

"We believe that during 'Operation Liberty Shield,' there were individuals in places, at times, where they should not have been," he said. "The investigations continue on those."

Roehrkasse declined to provide specifics.

I don't even know what that means. And "Operation Liberty Shield"?

For a good time, contrast the CNN story with the NYT's take.
