LA Observed pointed us towards LA Cowboy yesterday who wrote about Good Morning America's playing of a supposed Al Qaeda threat against Melbourne, Australia and Los Angeles. The Cowboy wants to know why this isn't front page news for the Times. So does Mickey Kaus who notes that it is in Melbourne.

Meanwhile, according to USA Today, Officials [are] put[ing] little stock in televised terror threat.

LA Observed delves a little deeper this morning, though, and looks at a year old piece in LA City Beat that profiled the suspected terrorist, Adam Gedahn.
