Their attacks will be targeted on bridges and tunnels causing public panic and disarray among first responders.
It is believed that the terror attacks could be staged by car bombs. It is also believed that the individuals who have plans of executing these attacks could be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. The security agencies are on the lookout for two or three English and Arabic speaking individuals and have been identified through flight logs and other records.
Confirming the tip receiver on the terror plot, on Friday, the Vice President Joe Biden stated that, “The thing we are all most worried about is what they call a ‘lone ranger,’ a lone actor, not some extremely complicated plan like it took to take down the World Trade towers,”
The US president has been briefed on the subject issue on Thursday morning & is being updated regularly. Marking the 10th year of terror attacks on the twin towers, the president has instructed the counterterrorism & Law enforcement agencies to put in their best efforts in response to this credible but unconfirmed information.
