Force Protection Levels Raised

The Pentagon has raised its alert levels at U.S. military bases, until after the 10th anniversary commemorations of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on Sunday. But the decision had nothing to do with any specific information about a credible terrorism threat. “This is not in response to any particular threat but is a prudent and precautionary measure,” said Pentagon spokesman George Little. The Pentagon said the move takes effect on Wednesday and will continue through Sunday.
