Mixed Signals

If you never thought you'd see the words "Homeland Security Department" in the same sentence as the phrase "threat being viewed with strong skepticism," this is your lucky day.

WASHINGTON Oct 18, 2006 (AP) A Web site is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend, but the government on Wednesday expressed doubts about the threat.

The warning, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled "New Attack on America Be Afraid." It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled for this weekend.

Is it possible the folks at ABC News missed the weekend that fell between the "threat" of October 12 and this story being printed on the 18?
