FBI Warns Of Thanksgiving Terror Potential; Walsh Says No Specific Threat To Boston

CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) — As the holiday bustle picks up, so does law enforcement awareness.

Sources tell CBS News the FBI is alerting police across the country about a potential terrorist attack around Thanksgiving.

It specifically warns of homegrown terrorists. Potential targets? Shopping malls, special events, crowded venues–locations in Washington, D.C. and Virginia described as target-rich zones. ISIS’s magazine called New York City’s Macy’s Parade an excellent target.

And potential tactics could include guns, IEDs, or drones equipped with IEDs.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says there is no specific threat to the Boston area, but it’s good to stay on your toes.

“We’re going to have more visibility out on the streets,” Walsh told WBZ-TV Friday. “People are going to see more police officers out there. You know, even during the holiday season, the shopping, we try to put more visibility out there.”

    1. Check out what Chump’s choice for Chief Strategist had to say to the press, Katie…

      ““Darkness is good,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”


      These scumbag jewb#tches are just giving us the middle finger now. They could care less what we think at this point.

  1. It’s totally safe. The police practiced Operation Turkeyleg last year. They got it all down pat now.
    Just gotta stay alert.
    If you see any pressure cookers, dial 911.
    If you see someone who may look middle eastern and dressed like a pilgrim, dial 911.
    If you see anyone dressed in a turkey costume, call 911.
    If someone says “Happy Thanksgiving” to you, dial 911 immediately. That is a right wing extremist and everybody knows they are dangerous.
    If you see young children dressed like Indians and Pilgrims on a stage, please call 911. They are really a roving band of terrorist midgets.
    See something, Say something, people!!
    Remember, there are no free-range turkeys. Just terrorists.

    1. tc, you were born for stand up comedy. Like Carlin, tell the truth and call it comedy, yet it’s oh, so much more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I’m calling bullshit! At this late date, who in their right mind, would believe anything the FBI says? If there is a terror attack, the FBI created it! That’s how things work in contemporary America.
