    Default Administration's terrorist attack...

    Hi, I heard it in some TV show and do not understand what it is about. Could you put this in other words for me? I'd be thankful.

    The Attorney General did not get into the specific details conserning the elevation of the administration's terrorist attack advisory alert to red".

    Well... does it meant that the Attorney General didn't say why there's a red alert or something? I know who he is but the all sentence is kind of weird for me.

    Yes it means that he said that the security alert had been, or was being raised to red; without explaining why.
