CBS News has learned about a potential terror threat for the day before the election. Sources told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states for Monday. It is believed New York, Texas and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned. U.S. authorities are taking the threat seriously, though the sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn’t been confirmed. Counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of abundance of caution. “While we do not comment on intelligence matters, we will say the counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States,” a U.S. intelligence official told CBS News. “The FBI and DHS, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, share and assess intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety. Look at that America likely intelligence agents inside the US government who support Hillary Clinton are simply trying to fear monger Americans days before the election on November 8th. All of these states in recent days especially Virginia and New York being battleground states, are states that have polls showing Trump leading finally leading after the FBI reopened the Hillary Clinton email case. The Obama administration and Washington establishment are losing control of the people since Friday, and what do they do? They warn America with fear mongering that a possible terror attack will happen the night before election night. However should we worry about this in America, because if a terrorist attack likely staged took place before the election...Would Obama declare martial law and cancel the election?
