Kooky sherriff places Cincinatti under terror alert... feds wonder why?
I think he forgot his ridlin that day....
Hamilton County Sheriff Simon Leis issued a warning Thursday urging vigilance against possible terrorism, but FBI and homeland security officials said there was no intelligence about a new threat.
Leis e-mailed a letter to thousands of schools, businesses and shopping malls, warning them to be on guard. He said he sent the alert because of new information about a possible terror attack in the Midwest before the Nov. 2
FBI and homeland security officials said they were not consulted before Leis sent the letter, which also was signed by Cincinnati Police Chief Tom Streicher, and they emphasized that terror alerts should be handled by them.
