Heightened Level of Vigilance in NY and DC


A credible and specific threat has been identified Wednesday by U.S. intelligence personnel. We are at a heightened level of vigilance as a result.

U.S. officials said Thursday they were investigating a credible but unconfirmed threat that al-Qaida was planning to use a car bomb to target bridges or tunnels in New York City or Washington to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the first tip of an “active plot” around that date.
