The Department of Defense and the US Army are warning of a possible terror threat to coincide with the second anniversary of the death of Osama Bin Laden, according to a memo sent to Infowars by a source based at Fort Hood.
The antiterrorism awareness advisory asks army personnel to “heighten awareness of force protection actions as the nation approaches the second anniversary of the death of Usama Bin Laden (UBL),” urging soldiers to be cognizant of “terror related threats to army personnel, families and facilities.”
Although the memo acknowledges that there is no specific credible threat for May 2nd, it does warn that terrorists, “may attempt to carry out an attack during or around the timeframe of the second anniversary of the death of Usama Bin Laden to capitalize on the symbolism such an attack would represent.”
The memo also notes that “homegrown violent extremists” may be motivated by the Boston bombings to carry out an attack and that they “remain the primary threat.”
The document lists a number of precautions army personnel are invited to take, including being wary when attending large public venues and being on the lookout for unattended backpacks.
