Submitted by ub on Fri, 09/09/2011 - 11:43

While the local tension increases, our area's heightened security does also. This, following a "credible" threat that terrorists may wish to unleash an attack on this anniversary of 9/11. Meanwhile, New Yorkers went to work today as police officers swarmed subway stations and bridges in a show of armed force.

Authorities are searching for 3 Al Qaeda terrorists who may be plotting here in NYC, or Washington, DC. These are "significant," but unconfirmed threat to these two cities, federal and state law enforcement say.

America's federal government terrorism officials are currently investigating reports of 9/11 anniversary threat which is credible, but unconfirmed. Also, counter-terrorism officials are still assessing a new report of a threat of an attack in major US cities like New York or Washington, DC by using car or truck bombs, timed to take place near the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to several officials briefed on the matter.
