An FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force has been sent to Denver, although Special Agent Kathy Wright said there's no information to conclude that Dirie had terrorist ties, the Rocky Mountain News reported.Of course, I don't believe for a minute that the FBI isn't crawling all over Dirie's former life to figure out what he was up to. But why can't cops just be honest and say what every reasonable person would think? Is it politically incorrect to suspect someone may have had terrorist intent?

"It's an isolated incident," Denver Police Detective John White told the newspaper. They refused to speculate on why he had such a large quantity of the poisonous substance with him in the swanky all-suite hotel so soon before the convention in Denver, Aug. 25-28.
"We don't think it's any act of terrorism," Sonny Jackson, a spokesman for the Denver Police Department, told FOXNews.com. "We have no reason to believe it was. Nobody knows what was in this gentleman's mind."
Jackson declined to elaborate on why the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force got involved in the case.
"That's just normal," said Jackson. "You'd have to ask them why they got involved. They may have more expertise with the chemicals."

"At this point we don't have any nexus to terrorism," the FBI's Wright told The Associated Press. She didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment from FOXNews.com.
These statements just make them look like idiots.
