    Terror threat called 'credible' for 9/11 anniversary - US news - Security - msnbc.com

    WASHINGTON — A "specific, credible" threat has emerged surrounding the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, U.S. officials said Thursday.

    But they emphasized that there was a great deal of uncertainty about the threat and said they were acknowledging it out of an abundance of caution. NBC News said police in New York City and Washington had been alerted.
    Recent intelligence, obtained within the past day, and originating from the tribal areas of Pakistan, advised the United States of a plan to set off car or truck bombs in Washington or New York around the time of the 9/11 anniversary, officials told NBC News.

    I have to be honest, I don't think we're much safer than we were 10 years ago.

    We have to expect them to give us their best shot. We are much more prepared than 9-11 and have access to much more information.

    Have to keep our fingers crossed and see what happens

    I still got my money on our side

    Well the Facts do not agree with you. We have stopped Several Major Terrorists attacks before they happened since 9/11. That alone is proof we are safer. However we will never be completely safe. Terrorism is to easy to pull off, and to hard to stop. The Terrorists only have to get it right once, we have to get it right every time. Eventually, we wont.

    I think it is very unlikely they will be able to pull of anything here, But I am more worried about some Major attacks over seas. Targeting Americans of Course.

    The second half of your statement doesn't instill much confidence. I allow variables with my comment...we are safer, but to what degree is the unanswerable question. In my opinion, not much.

    why would we be? they can prevent some or even most things, but not everything. and it is very difficult to deter someone who is willing to die.

    Why would you buy into an Islamophobic network like MSNBC?

    Safer.A little bit more.
    More aware.By leaps and bounds.
    Prepared.Like never before.

    All in all I like where we are.
    I like where we are because we rose above it.
    We will not let it destroy us.

    We won.They lost.
