U.S. Homeland Security Issues Terror Warning For Fourth Of July Celebrations

USA Today: Fourth of July terror warning issued by FBI, Homeland Security

Federal authorities have warned local law enforcement officials across the country about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th holiday, a U.S. law enforcement official said.

While there was no specific or credible threat of attack, the official said the intelligence bulletin prepared by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI alerted local colleagues to the ongoing threats posed by the Islamic State and other homegrown extremists. The official was not authorized to comment publicly.

The bulletins are frequently issued in advance of major U.S. holidays out of an abundance of caution and concern that operatives may exploit the timing to generate greater attention.

WNU Editor: Considering what is happening in the world today .... these terror warnings should not surprise anyone.
