Security Measures Are Stepped Up for 9/11 10th Anniversary


The 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks is prompting heightened security measures across the U.S., especially in New York City, where Presidents Obama and George W. Bush will mark the occasion at Ground Zero inside what police call a “frozen zone,” the Washington Post reports.

Law enforcement officials said they have no intelligence about a credible terrorist plot, but they are aware that before Osama bin Laden was killed, he seemed fixated on attacking the U.S. again on Sept. 11. “We would be paying extra attention because of the Sept. 11 anniversary alone without what was found at the bin Laden compound, but the fact that in the aftermath of his death there were documents indicating an attack on or about the anniversary – that has certainly focused our planning,” said New York police spokesman Paul Browne.
