from WJBD radio:
Two days before July 4, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a joint intelligence bulletin to local law enforcement around the country outlining the potential of Independence Day festivities being targeted.
These bulletins have become somewhat routine ahead of major U.S. holidays, and the bulletin issued late Tuesday begins by saying, “DHS and FBI are not aware of any specific, credible information indicating a threat from international terrorists, homegrown violent extremists (HVEs), or domestic terrorists (DTs) to the 2013 Fourth of July celebrations.”
“However, we assess Fourth of July celebrations and associated events are potentially attractive terrorist targets due to the presence of large crowds, the potential ease of access at locations hosting holiday events, and the symbolic nature of the holiday,” says the bulletin, obtained by ABC News.
