Chertoff Agrees with White House Agrees With Lieberman Agrees With Biden
Posted by Adam Blickstein

Add DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff to the mix:

Terrorists may see the change to a new U.S. president over the next six months as a prime chance to attack, no matter who wins the White House, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said.           

``Any period of transition creates a greater vulnerability, meaning there's more likelihood of distraction,'' Chertoff said in an interview yesterday. ``You have to be concerned it will create an operational opportunity for terrorists.''           

The risk is the same whether Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain is elected president on Nov. 4, he said. That comment undercuts McCain's argument that the U.S. would be more in danger of an attack if Obama, 47, wins.

McCain, 72, has been citing remarks by Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden on Oct. 19 that ``it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,'' should Obama win the White House.          

Just like Iraq (and Iran and North Korea and Russia), McCain and his campaign now stand on the barren margins when it comes to recognizing (at least in nonpartisan, political terms) the tangible threat of terror the next president will face early in his term. It's no wonder that nearly every sane (and even some more extreme) conservative national security experts are either backing or echoing Obama. And it's equally amazing that McCain is attempting to use a very real and dangerous threat as a political wedge, not because it's audacious, but mostly because its completely ineffectual except for his increasingly small and radical base. But after the past few months of erratic campaigning, its not surprising.
