Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror?

Not if you you're on the left. But the comes this from MSMBC:
NEW YORK - Authorities stepped up security Thursday after receiving what city officials called a credible threat that the New York subway could be the target of a terrorist attack in coming days. But Homeland Security officials in Washington downplayed the threat, saying it was of “doubtful credibility.”

“We have never had before a specific threat to our subway system,” Bloomberg said, adding that he still felt secure enough to take the subway home Thursday night. “Its importance was enhanced above the normal level by the detail that was available to us from intelligence sources.”

A law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity said the threat was “specific to place, time and method,” which was a bombing. The official said the information resulted from the arrest of al-Qaida operatives in Iraq.

Where does intelligence have to come from before it's deemed "credible?" Does it have to come from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's ideologically inbred family? Does it have to be found written on official al-Qaida letterhead and include an to-do list? Anyone take a stab at what the terrorists will or won't look like?

The terrorists are smart enought to know bowing up a few things with simple explosives would get the Left will blaming Bush before the first ambulance arrives and using it as proof the Iraq war hasn't made us safer.
