`US at sharp state of alert and security measures`
Washington: US remains at a heightened state
of vigilance ahead of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 even though
there is "no specific or credible information" about any
possible terrorist attack, a top Obama administration official
said on Friday.
"While there is no specific or credible intelligence that
al Qaeda or its affiliates are plotting attacks in the United
States to coincide with the ten year anniversary of 9/11, we
remain at a heightened state of vigilance and security
measures are in place to detect and prevent plots against the
United States should they emerge," the Secretary of Homeland
Security Janet Napolitano said in a statement.
He said as the country approaches the 10th anniversary of
2001 terrorist attacks, the safety and security of the
American public remains highest priority.
"While threats remain, our nation is stronger than it was
on 9/11, more prepared to confront evolving threats, and more
resilient than ever before," she added.
Homeland security is a shared responsibility, and everyone
plays an important role in helping to keep our communities
safe and secure, she said.
"We remind our federal, state, local partners, and the
public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious
activity to local law enforcement authorities," Napolitano
