Three States Are Being Warned of a Serious Terrorist Attack Before Election Day
The Political Insider – November 4, 2016
Federal officials are warning they have intelligence suggesting a possible al Qaeda terror attack being planned for the Monday prior to Election Day.
The three states being warned to be most vigilant are New York, Texas, and Virginia, though no specifics have been provided as of yet.
Intelligence officials have alerted joint terrorism task forces to be aware of the increased threat.
An FBI official said that “counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.”
Just last week, officials warned local law enforcement agencies of the possibility that extremists could execute lone wolf-style attacks at polling places on Election Day.
