Increased Security Expected On 9/11 Anniversary

Increased Security Expected On 9/11 Anniversary

According to POLITICO , the Pentagon announced earlier this week that it would raise security levels at military installments throughout the country as the anniversary of 9/11 approaches.

The White House said there have been no specific threats of a terrorist attack tied to the anniversary but the Administration of Barack Obama will remain vigilant through the anniversary and beyond. Concerns about the possibility of an attack on the anniversary stem from documents recovered from the compound where Osama bin Laden was killed that mentioned the anniversary of 9/11.

Increased police patrols throughout urban centers in the United States are expected. In addition, more intense scrutiny is planned at airports, train stations, seaports and any areas where large groups may be gathered.

Plans to tamper with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off in a valley or from a bridge were found on handwritten notes pulled from bin Laden’s hideout. Al-Qaida planners noted that if they attacked a train by tilting the track, the plan would succeed only once because the tilting would be spotted the next time. U.S. officials believe that the idea never left the planning stage.

According to The Associated Press, the Obama Administration is more worried about single acts of terrorism in the country.

“The risk that we’re especially concerned over right now is the lone-wolf terrorist, somebody with a single weapon being able to carry out wide-scale massacres of the sort that we saw in Norway recently,” Obama said in a recent briefing.

In July, a Norwegian man dressed as a police officer and armed with rifles and pistols carried out an hour-long massacre, indiscriminately killing members of a youth camp on Utoya, an island 25 miles from Oslo, Norway’s capital. When he finished, 69 were dead. Nearly half of the victims were under the age of 18. The extremist had earlier set off the bomb in central Oslo, killing eight.
