"Why didn't you warn us of the latest terrorist attack?"
"We didn't have any specific data; only a general warning of possible activity."
"So, why didn't you give us what you had and let us make up our own minds? We have a right to know when we're in danger!"
"Okay. From now on we'll alert you to any possible terrorist activity."
"Why do you keep giving us terrorist warnings without any specific targets?"
"Because we only have general information of a possible attack; nothing specific."
"Well, that doesn't give you the right to keep scaring the wits out of folks when you don't know anything for sure!"
"But, I thought you wanted to know about all possible attacks . . . ?!?"
