WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House has called an urgent multi-agency meeting for Thursday to discuss a potential new al Qaeda threat on U.S. soil, ABC News reported on Tuesday.
Top intelligence and law enforcement officials have been told to meet in the White House Situation Room to report on steps to minimize or counter the threat and what steps are being taken to tighten security at government buildings, ABC said.
The meeting would be one of a number that have been convened in light of new intelligence and information learned from the recent failed car bomb attempts in London, ABC reported, citing a senior U.S. administration official.
The unnamed official told ABC the level of concern of a new attack in the United States was now higher than it had been in some time.
The White House had no immediate comment on the report.@ FDL

Homeland Insecurity, Un-Patriotic Act, and many more advances in fascism have brought you to the brink of Prozac. Just try to lead a stable life without BIG Pharma keeping you docile and calm.
Think people are not a bit touchy? Flip the "Bird" at a Redneck and see what happens, now flip off a Prozac addled Stepford drone.
I rest my case.
