Stupidest Terrorist Overreaction Yet?

According to the venerable, combined force of the Associated Press and MSNBC

Two people who sprinkled flour in a parking lot to mark a trail for their offbeat running club inadvertently caused a bioterrorism scare and now face a felony charge.

“You see powder connected by arrows and chalk, you never know. It could be a terrorist, it could be something more serious. We’re thankful it wasn’t, but there were a lot of resources that went into figuring that out.”

– some spokesperson

I’m not sure which is worse – the smarmy spokes-comment, whatever they thought was “more serious” than terrorism, or that the reporters/editors didn’t comment on the insanity of this.
