Something is going on....
You talking about the terror plot?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials have received a credible but unconfirmed terror
threat having to do with New York or Washington.
A counterterrorism official tells The Associated Press that law enforcement
officials have been investigating the intelligence since it was received
late Wednesday night. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to
discuss sensitive security information.
The counterterrorism official says the information in the threat is so
specific and comes just days before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks
that it could not be ignored.
Security measures around the country, including in New York and Washington,
have been enhanced in the weeks leading up to the anniversary.
Homeland Security Department spokesman Matt Chandler described the threat as
specific and credible but unconfirmed. He did not release any information
about potential targets.
Being on the West Coast.......about 45mins ago the Local News here was expressing.....(a credible but unconfirmed terror
threat having to do with New York or Washington)......Lets Hope & Pray that this report of.....a Threat of Terrorism is NOT carried out and/or STOPPED!!!......Before anyone is Harmed.
They interrupted the local broadcast of the Packers Saints game to show an announcement by Mayor Bloomberg, so I think they know it's a NYC threat. The newsman also stated that it's a couple of individuals who want to drive car bombs into a bridge or building.
I wouldn't be surprised, but I also think that this is the most difficult time for an attack because everyone will be on high alert this weekend. After 9/11 there were armed National Guardsmen everywhere, police everywhere and you couldn't go to the bathroom without getting patted down.
I will be in the city today doing a few deliverly's. In a truck this should be fun...
oh goody, just what we need.
i know gate security has been up this last little bit, to guards whatching all vehicals, shotguns in plain view, etc.
Let us know how you made out. My Mom is staying in NJ instead of visiting us this weekend because of the traffic concerns.
You should have wrapped a towel around your head before driving in.
I was thinking the same thing. :rofl:
