As the 10th anniversary for 9/11 approaches, Americans fear another terrorist attack might be in the works--bin Laden had even planned a commemorative attack. But Attorney General Eric Holder has said that the U.S. intelligence does not expect any violent events on Sunday, reports Reuters. "We don't have any credible, specific allegations of activity or threats of any kind of activity on September 11," Holder told reporters.
Yet, that doesn't mean the country won't be prepared, continued Holday. "We are being vigilant with regard to what is out there. We are prepared to respond to anything that we see." The Pentagon has raised the threat level at U.S. bases, The Associated Press reports. And security will be especially high in New York City where thousands of extra officers will be deployed. "The NYPD plans to form a zone around the World Trade Center for a Sunday observance that President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush plan to attend. Along with extra officers -- the department won't reveal an exact number -- the security also will include hundreds of surveillance cameras trained on the site," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told the Associated Press.
