Not yet known whether attack warning is from credible source.
CBS News has issued a warning about a potential terror threat for the day before the U.S. election.
Sources revealed to CBS News senior investigative producer, Pat Milton, that U.S. intelligence has alerted terrorism task forces that al Qaeda may be planning attacks in three states on Monday.
The possible targets are New York, Texas and Virginia, although none have been mentioned.
Authorities are taking the threat seriously, although the source comments that the intelligence is still being investigated, and credibility has not been confirmed. Counter terrorism officials were alerted due to precautionary measures.
A U.S. intelligence official informed CBS News that, “While we do not comment on intelligence matters, we will say the counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States. The FBI and DHS, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, share and assess intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.
“The public should expect to continue to observe an increased law enforcement and security presence across communities in public places. Our law enforcement community also continues to take action against those who attempt to engage in activities that could put Americans at risk. There are more than 100 Joint Terrorism Task Forces at work across the country in partnership with state and local law enforcement to prevent attacks in the homeland.”
Intelligence about potential terror threats to the U.S. always increases during holidays, and large events.
As the election quickly approaches, federal officials are planning for several worst-case scenarios.
Faith Filled Family would like our readers to pray over the situation, as we believe that if indeed an attack is planned, that it never comes to fruition.Click here for reuse options!
