I was reading the morning paper about an hour ago and there was an article about this very topic. I had to go get the paper and I'll give you all a short rundown.
""Feds Issue a "Secret" Terror Alert""
Federal authorities have issued a secret alert to state and local law enforcement agencies warning them of the possibility of a terror attack in the U.S. around the July 4 holiday. The message from the FBI wasn't made public because intelligence analysts concluded the threats are too vague.
They said they fear the frquent alerts might be causing "threat fatigue" among Americans, who have been bombarded with so manys warnings that they no longer arouse much concern.
""Threat Fatigue"" ...now, isn't that a hoot??? that's a new phrase...
Here's the "" possible "" list of terror alerts: (Places the terrorists might HIT !!)
places to avoid.....WARNING :
large gasoline tankers..don't park next to one...
shopping malls ........(I'm not making this up) ....
the Brooklyn Bridge
the Statue of Liberty
ships, the FBI says the terrorists may send scuba divers to blow them up
banks in the Northeast...yes, banks
that's it ! No hospitals on the list..guess we could all work..
I wonder what all the FBI people are doing on their week long holiday/vacation....
Well, Happy 4th Everybody....I'm going to the beach....a very crowded one.......
Maybe the terrorists will assume all the places on ""the list"" are heavily guarded...and will choose something not on the list..........THE BEACH !!!! Oh NO !!!!
