“Scare Tactics or Possible Threat?” Last Time Homeland Security Was Threatened with Budget Cuts, America Suffered a Terror Attack
Threat advisories have been circulated about a possible terror attack on the Mall of America in Minnesota.
And now the Somali-based al-Shabaab has announced plans to target shopping centers in the UK, Canada and the United States.
Is there something in the works? Who knows…
Secretary of the Deparment of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has admitted that there actually is no specific threat concerning malls anywhere in the nation, but yet the fear has been sown.
Nevertheless, there may be a threat to America.
Before dispelling that threat, Johnson was actually playing it up:
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson urged mall visitors to be careful and said he was “very concerned” about the threat.
Johnson said on CNN:
“If anyone is planning to go to the Mall of America today, they’ve got to be particularly careful. And as the statement you read indicates, there will be enhanced security there that will be apparent… And it’s the environment we’re in, frankly. And it’s all the more reason why I need a budget.“
