An excerpt from the Rolling Stone interview with John Kerry:
What do you think of the color-coded terror alerts the Department of Homeland Security issues?
I think Americans, sadly, laugh at it. They don’t know what to do.
Will you continue that program?
No. I’m going to find some more thoughtful way of alerting America. If we have to alert America, I think the most important thing to do is alert law enforcement more effectively across the country. Law enforcement doesn’t have even a single, unified watch list yet. They still have separate watch lists, with different names and different people. This is the single, simplest, most important thing the Department of Homeland Security was supposed to do, and they haven’t done it.
Dude, making fun of the color alert system is so 2002.
