The Bush administration--the boys who cried wolf--eventually nobody will believe them. - Chertoff: No�sign plotters targeted U.S. - Aug 13, 2006: "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- 'Current evidence' does not show the people involved in an alleged plot to blow up airplanes planned to conduct any operations in the United States, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Sunday.
'The current evidence does not show any plotting occurring inside the United States or any plan to conduct operations within the United States,' Chertoff told CNN's 'Late Edition.'
Chertoff's remarks came three days after police in England arrested about two dozen people allegedly involved in a plot to use liquid explosives to blow up as many as 10 passenger planes during flights from the United Kingdom to the United States.
That prompted an immediate ban on liquids and gels in carry-on luggage in the UK and U.S. that resulted in widespread flight cancellations and delays. (Watch why checking in bags may not keep planes safe -- 1:58)"
