NEW YORK — CBS News has learned about a potential terror threat for the day before the election.

Sources told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states for Monday.

It is believed New York, Texas and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned.

U.S. authorities are taking the threat seriously, though the sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn’t been confirmed. Counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of abundance of caution.

A senior FBI official told CBS News, “The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States. The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”

Intelligence about potential threats always increases during holiday seasons and when big events are approaching.

    ABOVE ALL ELSE: This came through CBS,…you know, one of the “reliable sources”…RIGHT!?!

    WRONG!!!!

    I agree with ALL 3 of you…that, “DUH! “Hildabeast”, & “B.O.”, [duh stink’a uh D.imwit C.ity], are after FEAR, DOUBT & CONTROL! {and a few “collateral damages” along the way, they wouldn’t mind};

    BUT!!

    That said, it’s STILL WISE to keep your head on a swivel…practice “OOTA LOOP”…and stay as alert as you 3 OBVIOUSLY are!

    “unbridled”, you’re PROBABLY MUCH closer to reality than you WANT to be…B.O. is DEFINITELY after CONTROL…[or, if he can’t get that]…pleasing his “handlers” as best he can…AND! That – “his personal Army” – is “RIGHT ON!” BRO! Let’s STAY ALIVE folks…We’ve got a war to win! It just doesn’t seem like it yet…

      Sounds more like the HalfBreed and his martial law nonsense to me. Haven’t heard anything about al Qaeda in the U.S. What are they, just dropping in for the election or is this the HalfBreed’s personal army.
      So, let’s see, the HalfBreed will turn his personal army loose on the U.S citizenry and then call out the U.S military & national guard to fight them, or to fight WITH them?…WTF OVER!
      This sounds like the HalfBreed’s MO. Foreigners get a pass and U.S citizens get it in the A$$!!!!!!!
      Lock & Load people the sh!t may be goin’ down….

          If the Pants Suit Prostitute is successful in stealing this election right in our faces and all of the proof of it continues to be exposed, including 150% or 160% of the registered electorate voting in places throughout the country we will have our second revolution in order to water the tree of liberty with the blood of Tyrants & Patriots as Thomas Jefferson so wisely alluded to. This brand of treason can not be allowed to stand at any cost….

        Now we know why the border has been FORCED to be left open with the Border Patrol told NOT to mess with anyone! Muslims have been coming through for 8 years now, and there’s MANY more than has ever been reported and they’re ready!!
