Name That Logical Fallacy: Um, who said the threat was over?

Hello everyone and welcome to "Name That Logical Fallacy," the blog post totally ripped off from a segment of the podcast "Skeptics Guide to the Universe."

Here's today's quote:

"It strikes me as hard to accept that anybody would believe the threat is over. There is nothing these terrorists are doing or saying that could lead a reasonable person to believe that they have somehow lost interest."

-- Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, doing his part to terrorize the nation and the world.
Now it's up to you: Name That Logical Fallacy!
