Camp Commandants

We may be in Chile, but we're still keeping an eye on the Apple, particularly the Post's revelation that there is already a ginormous holding centre ready for unruly protestors close to the GOP convention. The Times relates, with a pretty straight face, that the entire convention will stay on orange alert, despite there being no specific information:

"Have we collected intelligence that there is going to be a hit in the financial district during the Republican National Convention?" said Pasquale J. D'Amuro, the assistant director in charge of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "No. But intelligence we have collected indicates that Al Qaeda still desires to attack both domestically and abroad. They want to kill Americans."

Glad to see the internet connection at the Feds' NY bureau is up and running...
