US government officials have been escalating security around the country and getting ready for the 10th anniversary of those horrific 9-11 terrorist attacks. There have been confidential briefings between national, state and local law enforcement agencies.
These briefings are routine, and security has been enhanced for other major events in the past decade.However, the significance of the 10-year anniversary of the worst terror attacks on U.S. soil is not lost on security officials, who worry that a nut case, or anyone with some terrorist sympathies might want to use 9/11 as an opportunity to make a statement.
It is extremely important to underline - There is no specific indication that a terror plot against the U.S.A. is under way. We can expect to see more security at large population hubs, like airports, mass transit stations, U.S. borders, government buildings and major athletic events.
