Posted on 10/30/2021 8:37:31 AM PDT by lightman
It's Halloween weekend—and there is a boogeyman out there. This is no drill. The residents of Northern Virginia are under a terror threat over the next 72 hours as officials warn that an active ISIS cell could launch an attack soon. Authorities have warned folks heading into malls and shopping centers. Reportedly, two ISIS operatives have been tasked with carrying out some attack in a population center. Police presence will be increased in the area (via CBS News):
Police in Northern Virginia are on a heightened state of alert as a new law enforcement alert warned of a potential threat against malls and shopping centers located just outside of Washington, D.C. The threat originated with ISIS and is the basis for the alert, sources told CBS News
"We have increased our police presence throughout the county to include major thoroughfares, transit hubs, shopping plazas and shopping malls," Fairfax County police chief Kevin Davis said Friday.
Police said the increased law enforcement presence will be in place through the Halloween weekend and ahead of Virginia's gubernatorial election. Law enforcement officials said they are acting out of an abundance of caution, and as they learn more about the threat, the increased law enforcement presence could be extended through Tuesday's election.

Now, the fact that we allowed tens of thousands of unvetted Afghan refugees to resettle in the area couldn’t be a reason, right? Of course, there were some bad dudes that got here and slipped through the cracks. And yes, we shouldn’t be shocked if some terrorists got through. They’ve done so before. It’s not lockdown-worthy, but just be aware if you’re a resident of NoVa and are out and about this weekend.
Where would Isis ever get any weapons anyway?
* cough*cough* bullsjt* cough*
They’re happy when you’re always afraid.
Are school boards meeting in malls now? Lol
Thank you, Idiots Who Voted for Democrat Politicians!
<< an active ISIS cell could launch an attack soon >>
And Biden’s FBI will save the day, right before the VA election.
All the ISIS manpower is booked this weekend for handing out McAwful campaign materials.
If you see anybody who looks like a FBI agent provocateur, run for your life!
So wear a mask to keep yourself and others safe
Supposedly this threat is coming from an Afghan refugee brought in after Kabul fell to the Taliban, who was caught and rolled over and face out names
We have asked for this with the administration’s policies
One should always be careful heading into malls and shopping centers. Gotta keep an eye out for those unruly amish shoppers.
Terrorism only works if people are terrorized.
In person voter suppression op?
“Active ISIS cell” = “McAuliffe LARPers”. Their post-terror escape has likely already been pre-arranged with the FBI.
I’ve avoided NVA shopping malls for the last dozen years out of concerns for my safety from the “teens” who have taken over them in this area.
Folks in Va.
No need to shop in these malls. You would find the shelves
empty (more than likely). Save your life and your time.
Another DS method to blast our economy. ENTER the store at your own risk.
And Resident Biden - how’s YOUR WALL progressing?
McAuliffe is down 8 points.
Voter suppression, much?
Some day terrorists will wise up and dress like urban gang members and Antifa. Then they can do whatever they want and no one will bother them.
