What in the Hell?

I have one question after reading the last sentence of this report on the new threat to NYC subways / trains. What in the hell is going on? MTA officials were informed of the threat by a reporter, after the story had already broken? Something smells funny. One would think Rep. Peter King would have the decency to inform MTA officials, and MTA police, that their system had a credible, "significant" threat, since it appears the Homeland Security Department was too busy to make that call. Either more gross incompetence in anti-terror tasking from this Administration, or downright manipulation. I can't see too many other explanations.
