Millions of Americans begin Thanksgiving holiday amid ramped up security, terrorism fears

by  |  published on November 26, 2015

Millions of Americans started their Thanksgiving getaway Wednesday by taking to the roads and airport security lines, undaunted by terrorism fears as officials continue to stress there are no “credible” threats in the wake of the Paris terror attacks earlier this month.

President Obama said at the White House there is no “specific and credible” intelligence indicating a plot against the U.S., while assuring anxious Americans, “While the threat of terrorism is a troubling reality of our age, we are both equipped to prevent attacks and we are resilient in the face of those who would try to do us harm.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson echoed Obama’s statement that there are no specific, credible treats to the homeland ahead of the 2015 holiday season.

    I certainly hope that everyone had a serious discussion over dinner about the need for gun control. In addition I hope that they made some serious decisions about acquiring more weapons with 30 round mags, precision scopes, and some survival food….oh and the young ones need some range time…

    Sorry, I trust the judgment of our CIA and FBI over Obama’s “containment” predictions. O’Liar is obviously delusional.
