Terror tape authenticated

Drudge says ABC has a new tape that warns of impending attacks that will "dwarf" 9/11 has been authenticated by the CIA and the FBI. ABC won't air it yet because they are considering the political ramifications of running the tape in the week prior to the election:

This is not something you just throw out there while people are voting, the ABC source explained.
I am left to wonder how an authentic terror warning qualifies as something that the public doesn't need to know about in the midst of an important election, yet they (the mass media) have no trouble running with half-baked stories on missing weapons (h/t Power Line).

Make sure you go check out that Power Line story. They're doing a great job of deconstructing yet another media attempt to influence the election.

Thanks. :) Not that it matters much anymore, because the video was released. Kudos to the folks at ABC for making the right move in this case.
