Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And WTF is with the Homeland Security guy Chertoff?

Chertoff says Europe poses terrorism threat

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said on Wednesday that one of the biggest threats to U.S. security may now come from within Europe.

In an interview with BBC radio, Chertoff said that American authorities were becoming increasingly aware of a real risk of Europe becoming a "platform for terrorists".

He said it was important to step up security checks on passengers coming from Europe to the United States.

Yep, report has it that Chertoff is recommending that America bound passengers be required to fill in on line applications of some kind.

Chernoff is caving in to paranoia but heck, it's his job to remain paranoid.
