"Based on our current assessment of security, we reduced our level, but are still in a heightened state of alert..."
What lovely double-speak, even for Maloney, eh? And now, some more foolish spin that would anger Bill O'Reilly:
"We believe we have the security of the system in hand as best we can."
Really? Of course, it wouldn't happen to have anything to do with the fact that the added police overtime would cost SEPTA $400,000 to $450,000 per week, now would it? Nor, of course, is it because of the ongoing contract dispute between FOP Lodge 109. As stated before, why doesn't SEPTA just send a press release to potential terrorists to let them know that the system really isn't as safe as they want it to be? Just asking...
