With the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks upon us, a warning has been sent out to Americans to be careful. Sporting events and concerts are major targets. Isis is on the loose, and we are all targets to their madness…
From Fox News:
There is a new warning that ISIS-inspired terrorists may possibly target stadiums and sports venues. It comes just days before the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and as the National Football League opens the regular season this week.
This latest warning appears to be an update to a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin that was issued at the beginning of this summer advising that ISIS extremists were being inspired to launch attacks inside the United States. In just the past few days, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have sent a new bulletin to law enforcement going into more detail about where those attacks may be launched.
It says homegrown ISIS-inspired terrorists have now shifted their focus away from government and military targets and towards civilian venues such as stadiums, arenas, concert venues and music festivals. It goes on to point out that in the past 12 months, 75 percent of homegrown violent extremist attacks, such as the Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando, have focused on civilian targets.
The 15th anniversary of 9/11 is this Sunday and it just so happens that many NFL teams will be opening up their season on that day as well. We may be overreacting, but that is exactly what they want us to do. We can’t put our guard down for one second. Stay safe out there.
