September 11 – 10th Anniversary Terrorist Threat


Recent intelligence obtained on Wednesday, and it is believed to have originated from the tribal areas of Pakistan, advised the United States of a plan to set off car or truck bombs in Washington or New York around the time of the 9/11 anniversary. Information about the attacks came from NBC this week.

The information indicated that three people would travel to the U.S. from Pakistan to carry out an attack, they said. However, the information included very little else in the way of specifics — in terms of timing or target.

Law enforcement officials were being alerted to be on the lookout for three men “of Middle Eastern descent” and potentially traveling in a van, they said. While the information had some specificity and the source has been credible in the past, it’s uncorroborated, officials warned.

New Yorks mayor Michael Bloomberg has said that the commemorations will go ahead as planned but under heightened police presence due to the warnings of a threat.
