San Francisco on high-alert after terror threat

golden_gate1August 5, 2013

The Department of Homeland Security is beefing up its presence at airports, train stations and other travel hubs in the United States in the wake of global travel warning imposed on all U.S. citizens. Local authorities are not going into specifics but the San Francisco Police Department does acknowledge receiving a bulletin by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DHS.

The SFPD says their officers are monitoring various areas of the city and will determine if additional resources are necessary. They say they have the ability to rapidly deploy and redeploy resources as the department deems necessary. No specific location has been mentioned, but authorities are keeping a close eye on airports, train stations and other transportation hubs.

There is also increased scrutiny of visitors coming into the United States. These latest measures have been implemented out of an abundance of caution. ”al Qaida and the Arabian Peninsula is probably the biggest threat to the homeland. They’re the al Qaida faction that still talks about hitting the west and hitting the homeland. And their expertise is chemical explosives. Hitting the aviation sector as we saw with the underwear bomber, so we are on a high state of alert,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas.

The bulletin sent by the FBI and DHS urging local law enforcement to be vigilant was classified, which reflects the sensitivity and seriousness of the situation. ABC
