Movie plots need to be taken more seriously

A citizen named Jennifer writes:
Today, a security analyst wrote in the Guardian: "We need to defend against the broad threat of terrorism, not against specific movie plots." As someone who thinks a lot about movie plots, I was wondering: what is the position of DOF?
Bob Smith, Deputy-Directory of Public Relations at DOF replies:
Jennifer, DOF recommends that Americans get their information from US-based networks and cable news channels, i.e. Fox. Foreign media sources can be unreliable. Concerning the opinion piece in the Guardian, DOF experts point to common sense. We all know that it is the scariest movies that feel the most real and give us our worst nightmares. Such fears are real to the American people, and we at DOF along with partner agencies, and the President are doing everything we can to defeat those who could cause our worst fears to be realized.

In the meantime, be afraid Jennifer. It is a dangerous world.
