US Warns Of Possible Al-Qaeda Terrorist Attack On Monday Targeting NY, Texas And Virginia

Tyler Durden's picture

In an presidential election campaign that has had virtually every possible surprise, only one thing was missing: a terrorist attack.

Alas, even that may be on the horizon because as CBS News reported moments ago, the news station has learned about a potential terror threat for the day before the election: "Sources say U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al-Qeada could be planning attacks in three states for Monday.

CBS adds that it is believed New York, Texas and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned.

A senior FBI official told CBS News, ““The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.  The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.” During holiday seasons and when big events are approaching, intelligence about potential threats always increases.

While CBS tried to moderate the warning by noting that the "sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn’t been confirmed, but counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of abundance of caution", such a threat may lead to a depressed turnout in these three states and potentially impact the outcome of the presidential election.

Slightly OT… Here’s a little update on the all-too-quiet Syrian War.

According to the Fars News Agency, between 2,200 up to 2,500 militants have been killed or wounded in their large-scale offensive on government forces' positions in the Western and Southwestern parts of Aleppo city in the last few days.

The Arabic service of RT quoted the sources as saying that the terrorist groups suffered between 2, 200 up to 2,500 casualties, including a large number of non-Syrian militants, in their Great Epic Operation on Army positions in Western and Southwestern Aleppo in the last 6 days.

Meantime, other sources said earlier today that days of attacks by around 16,000 militants under the Great Epic Operation to prevail over the government forces' positions and lift the siege of militants in Eastern districts of Aleppo ended in nothing but the most devastating failure for the terrorists since escalation of the crisis in Syria.

 

Also, Egypt (another country Hillary almost succeeded fucking up) has been busy breaking ties with Saudi Arabia.

1. A few weeks ago, they quietly exited the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen.

2. Last week, they voted for Russia’s proposal on Syria at the UN Security Council.

3. Egypt, for the last several weeks, has been conducting Joint Special Forces Exercises with the Russian Spetsnaz all around the Sinai Peninsula and the Suez Canal.

4. Yesterday, the Egyptian soldiers arrived at Tartous, Syria to “continue their training” with the Russians.

Nothing like a terrorist attack to distract the masses from a rigged election.

A dozen armoured goons knock on your door. 
Do you know what to do next?
Will they leave quietly and just go next door if you are not at home?

Will you ever regret missing the chance to take one with you?  (Not the goons.  Why waste your time with goons?  You know the names.  Do you have the addresses?)

What?  Nothing, I did not type a thing.  Oh, that.  I must've slipped on the keyboard.  No reasonable prosecutor ...

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot.  Has Assange finished his dump yet?  What about the NYPD?  Might be a good time to cut the crap and dump the big stuff.  I'll be really pissed if they miss their window just because of this stupid shit.

Oh, and Chris, if you're still here.  I've been meaning to ask, what was the name of that astrology book you had?  Any hints?

Never forget, these terrorists are members of the Religion of Peace(tm), purposely imported by our treasonous leaders to replace the white population that founded and built this nation with a more malleable population. It would appear that our treasonous leaders would rather rule over a wasteland populated by dull-witted serfs that a prosperous vibrant land populated by bright creative people.

Forward (over the cliff)!

Religion of Peace(tm)

Came across this earlier this week. 7 min video titled Evidence Muhammad Was Demon Possessed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FywOhaY-GEA

That would explain a lot. It said the entity calling himself Gabriel choked him, that Muhammad was going to throw himself off a cliff until he was stopped by family.

He appears to have had parasomnias (a sleep disorder).  So a whole religion is based on this.

If I remember rightly, it is Pink.  Then mauve, then lavendar, then brown.

But it doesn't matter to me becoz I put up some "Terrorist Free Zone" signs in my house, PLUS I declared it a "Safe Space" so I'm all set to go!

PT's picture

Coming to think of it, I think it is Code Amber and then Code Brown.

Coming to think a little harder, I think it would be absolutely awesome if a significant number of people rocked up to vote while carrying signs saying "Terrorist Free Zone" in great big letters and a shadow pic with the red diagonal line, with "Safe Space" written in the fine print.

Then again, the target audience probably wouldn't get it.  Never mind, you could sell some signs to them too.

ANYTHING to distract from Crooked Clinton and the tons of emails, facts, photos, etc showing her crookedness. Biggest false flag yet perhaps.

Quick, Assange!  Dump all the emails on the upcoming Monday terrrrst false flag attack!

If Clinton is elected, sometime in the next year a false flag bombing will happen to "galvinise" the country behind her sagging, corrupt ass.

They may try to hit the largest Navel military port in the world: NAS Norfolk. Isn't that wonderful? The jets around here have been flying non stop each day with breaks in between. Something's up. Nothing like a little flase flag event to get the natives and military all excited again about going to Syria and knocking out a few Russian Migs. Yea.

In lower Nevada the military jets have been busy the past few days and this AM. Loud and proud.

NBC is saying that they are gearing up for all of the following on election day, I shit you not: 

  1. A cyber attack from Russia. Obama is running his mouth telling Russia that the US is going to take it very seriously if they do that.
  2. A cyber attack from inside this country.
  3. A massive DDOs attack, taking down the internet, but hey not to worry, that won't interfere with the ballots.
  4. Here is the best one. They are expecting massively bad news, against either candidate, to be leaked just before the election and they are not going to be able to tell the veracity of the bombshell news, or not.

I am also hearing about lots of "White Militias" gunning up for election unrest. 

And now this shit?

They want us scared to go out the fucking door Tuesday.

I keep saying this is going to go FULL RETARD like we have never seen before. I am not ready for my own prognostication.
