Better Than Ignoring Threats, But Still... 

Can this possibly be true? US News & World Report has the following, well, report:
It was the lead item on the government's daily threat matrix one day last April. Don Emilio Fulci, described by an FBI tipster as a reclusive but evil millionaire, had formed a terrorist group that was planning chemical attacks against London and Washington, D.C. That day even FBI director Robert Mueller was briefed on the Fulci matter. But as the day went on without incident, a White House staffer had a brainstorm: He Googled Fulci. His findings: Fulci is the crime boss in the popular video game Headhunter. "Stand down," came the order from embarrassed national security types.
I mean, "Don Emilio Fulci?" An "evil millionaire?" Man, oh, man, I hope this story is just B.S.
