U.S. intelligence: Europe terror plot did not target Americans – Homeland Security Newswire

The U.S. government says there is no indication the United States or its citizens are a target in the latest al Qaeda plot that triggered a blanket travel alert for Americans in Europe. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that the State Department alert “deals with Europe and isn’t related to the United States.”

Fox News reports that an FBI/Homeland Security intelligence bulletin obtained Monday by the Associated Press also said the latest threat did not appear to involve the United States. “At this time, there is no indication that the reported threat is directed specifically toward the United States, its citizens, or infrastructure; however, we assess that Al Qaeda and its affiliates continue to plot against the Homeland and U.S. allies,” the bulletin said.
