The US State Department has issued a “worldwide travel alert” cautioning Americans any place on the planet to be careful about their travel, and insisting that terrorist organizations might like to carry out an attack against them.
At the same time, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano admitted that there is no “credible intelligence” pointing to any attack plots coming on 9/11, and that the heightened state of vigilance doesn’t coincide with any specific plots.
The State Department warning likewise conceded that there were no “specific threats,” but appeared reluctant to allow that to stop them from issuing a headline grabbing warning.
The latest Gallup poll shows fewer Americans are caught up in the notion that a massive terror attack is coming “over the next several weeks,” with only 38% seeing it as Very or Somewhat Likely to be the case, a major dropoff.
