My question is what are the alerts for? Why would US intelligence agencies want to give an opponent a feedback mechanism? An opponent makes a move, then watches what happens, thus probing the depths of our intelligence apparatus.

The alerts do not have to correlate to any particular events or popularity numbers in order to be political. The general climate of fear is a political weapon to forge agreement on otherwise unpopular endeavors.

The terror alerts cause the people in my hometown to put flags on their cars and drive up and down the street like scared rabbits. This is the purpose, the more scared rabbits, the better for the people running the show.
