Posted on 08/03/2013 7:10:10 PM PDT by SE Mom
Federal authorities are boosting security in the United States after intelligence agencies detected a credible threat to Western interests overseas and the government began closing diplomatic posts in some Muslim countries, according to homeland security officials.
The Department of Homeland Security is increasing security measures at airports, train stations and other transportation hubs, and expanding scrutiny of visitors coming into the United States, two officials told ABC News.
The FBI, meanwhile, is "working sources" and taking other "logical steps" to monitor any potential threat, an FBI official said.

Don’t know what to make of it..but FYI.
"What authorities don't have is the date, the timing or the target of the attack, which is why they have taken such an approach to warning potential targets, Miller reports"
How specific can it be, then?
Maybe they should build and man a FENCE.
Locking the border down are they?
Here we go, boys and girls.
The officials said the latest measures are being taken “out of an abundance of caution,” and the recent intelligence contains “no nexus” to the U.S. homeland. However, there is an “air of mystery” and “uncertainty of exactly what the target is,” one official said
I feel so much safer knowing that the government has billions of hollow point bullets to protect me.
Dan to town about five. Men in uniform at all three locations I stopped. Not usual.
Just as Congress breaks, suddenly a government clampdown. A crowd gathering where a congress critter will be is a threat to security. No townhalls.
Maybe the HS and TSA should shoot everyone’s pet dogs? That seems to work for the cops and their swat teams.
The Department of Homeland Security is increasing security measures at airports, train stations and other transportation hubs...
More groped grandmothers and stolen luggage, not to mention delays, delays, and more delaysbut the terrorists still haven't won, because we're making a wretched mess of our nation all by ourselves.
I have no idea why that post formatted so oddly- sorry.
In the words of the Detroit Judge who rejected Detroit’s bankruptcy, these terrorists are not honoring Obama.
Seems interesting and a little scary to me that the specific terror threat alerts that DHS & FBI sent to local law enforcement was ‘classified’. They don’t do that very often. What to make of it?
The day that DHS starts recording all the departures of visa holders from the US, I will take note of their achievement. Until then it is all BS and a jobs program.
Most of the security threats we face came in on a valid visa and overstayed. Round em up.
Well they’re all saying it’s An active...credible... specific and significant threat that is ‘underway’.....
Apparently intercepts between Alqaeda to target/aim for (specifically) Western Interests both inside and outside Yemen...also calling it a significant threat “stream”...
Sounds to me like they see this as very serious and not the norm threat level.....first time the most Embassies closed since 9/11.
We have a new inexperienced national Security Adviser who just may be overplaying her hand....remember she could NOT get the other position because of the same problem...Inexperience.
