Bush: Al Qaeda to blow up US if Kerry elected

Thursday, August 5th, 2004 - 4:46 am PDT

President Bush tonight informed the American people of newly gathered intelligence reports that indicate Al Qaeda terrorists will “blow up the United States” if John Kerry is elected president this November. “We don’t know how they will do it,” said the president, “It could be a series of car bombs, truck bombs, dirty bombs, or even hijacked nuclear missiles, but let me be clear on this: this threat is real and immediate.” The president went on to say that Americans have a clear choice this Fall, between an America that is safe and strong or one that is “blown up by terrorists”. The national terror alert code has not been raised following Bush’s announcement, and Bush urged America to “go about your daily lives as normal.”
