No surprise here.

Fox News is reporting that the US terror alert level is being moved up to orange.

We've never for a moment doubted that Dubya would find some reason to play the terror alert card just before the election, given that alerts bump up his popularity by a couple of points. It is, of course, just a coincidence that a couple of points would change the results of the presidential election.

More: And now Fox is reporting that the feds have decided not to raise the terror alert level.

Guess that is just Fox, firing up their base in case any were beginning to think or something.
