FBI: Beware of truck bomb attacks in NY, LA & Chicago around 9/11 anniversary

The FBI has issued an alert for possible terrorist attacks with improvised truck bombs around the time of the 9/11 anniversary in early September.

The FBI has warned police that al Qaeda cells might use fuel trucks as weapons to attack Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, but officials stressed Thursday the warning was based on uncorroborated intelligence.

The bulletin warned police that terrorists could use fuel tankers in assaults on the three cities. The warning has not been substantiated, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

The bad guys seem to like anniversaries, so September 11 would be suspect in any event.

Be safe, be aware of your surroundings.
