  • Government plays down rumored terror threat

    And the rumors of threats just keep on coming...

    espn.com

    WASHINGTON -- A Web site is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend, but the government on Wednesday expressed doubts about the threat.
    The warning, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled "New Attack on America Be Afraid." It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled for this weekend.
    The Homeland Security Department alerted authorities and stadium owners in those cities, as well as the NFL, of the Web message but said the threat was being viewed "with strong skepticism." Officials at the NCAA, which oversees college athletics, said they too had been notified.
    Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said there was no intelligence that indicated such an attack was imminent, and he said the alert was "out of an abundance of caution."
    Obviously let's hope they are right.

    Funny, you usually don't see threats like this appear unless there is an election coming up.

      Of course, if one went off in Oakland, not to many people would notice or care. It would just add to the typical atmosphere of the average Raider home game.
