As Americans are figuring out their turkey menus, making lists for presents and digging out the Christmas ornaments, terrorists may be making plans of their own.
And in fact, they may also have something in mind to horrifically upstage the anti-Donald Trump protestors.
CBS News says, The FBI is alerting law enforcement officials across the country that there is concern about a potential terrorist attack around Thanksgiving or the Inauguration, CBS News’ Jeff Pegues reports.
The alert specifically warned of homegrown terrorists and cited shopping malls, special events and other crowded venues as possible targets. Specific locations in Washington, D.C. and northern Virginia are described as “target-rich” zones. Potential tactics that could be used include guns, IEDs or drones equipped with IEDs.
The FBI warned about potential indicators of lone-wolf activity, including isolation from friends and family, lifestyle changes, increased use of encrypted forms of communication and more. The warning comes from activity in al-Qaida’s “Inspire Magazine.”
The NYPD warned earlier this week that the magazine of ISIS had called the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade an “excellent target.”
We’ve been so consumed with the domestic protests and whining after Donald Trump’s election we’ve forgotten there are those who want all of us dead, no matter for whom we voted.
Let us pray our nation does not have to endure another San Bernardino or Paris-style attack this year. However you can be certain if there is an attack, the left already knows who to blame.
