Cry wolf?

Good article in the latest edition of The Economist on the questionable motivation behind the recent terror warning in the US ...

Since we're at it: Said magazine has another important article on the future of property rights in the electromagnetic spectrum. Now this may sound somewhat arcane (the summary is by me, after all), but it is definitely an important aspect for all corporations which have expensive frequency licenses on their balance sheet which they may soon discover to be worthless. The prospect of open spectrum is likely to introduce another disruptive technology in many more industries, and governments may loose a weighty revenue contributor. I am pretty sure this is not a matter of Cry Wolf!
