Obama May Issue European Travel Alert On Terrorism Fears

WASHINGTON (CBS 2) — Americans could be facing a European travel alert by Sunday. The Obama administration is considering issuing the advisory over concerns that al-Qaida is planning to attack some European cities.

International travelers at Newark Liberty International Airport learned new details of the alleged plot that involved giving terrorists across Europe marching orders to strike where and when they could.

A travel alert for Europe could come before the end of the weekend in the wake of threats that once again put al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden front and center, reports CBS 2’s Dave Carlin.

A new audio tape provides the evidence that bin Laden is alive and plotting. Security experts do not doubt that it is his voice on a 13-minute message recorded recently enough to reference devastating floods in Pakistan.

The message makes no mention of the plot to spread terror in Great Britain, France, Germany, and perhaps Denmark.

CBS 2 spoke to Congressman Peter King by phone, and he said the latest threats seemed to be patterned after the assault on Mumbai in 2008 that killed close to 200 people.

“Mumbai attacks, where you have attacking major hotels, buildings, doing it with machine guns, automatic weapons – that is something to be on guard for,” Rep. King said.

If a travel alert is issued, it would not discourage Americans from going to Europe. Instead, it would urge travelers to be extra cautious while there.

“Personally, I’m reasonably careful wherever I go,” Nicola Roe, who was traveling to London Saturday night, said.

“The threats are going to be there,” Matthias Kwenin, also headed to London, said. “We just have to be courageous, and move on, and ignore them.”

Even though there appears to be no imminent danger, security forces across Europe remain on high alert.

    @ DanTe
    Wow I hope you’re not a Christian, because if you are I am embarrassed to be lumped in with you.
    Lets look at some of the Christian acts as compared to the Muslim acts you listed above. How about we start with the big one
    The Crusades……..hundreds of thousands of people killed in the name of the Lord
    The Inquisition……..the same
    The Witch hunts…..same
    The settling of the New World and killing and converting of Native Americans
    All religions do stupid things because it’s the people that interpret the scriptures in different ways.
    In my opinion RELIGION of alll faiths is the true demon.

      Nope. I’m not Christian. Religion is nothing more than the World’s Oldest Scam.

      However, if you bothered reading history, you would note that all the other religions has undergone internal dissent and external criticism to come out a better and more stable scam product. Islam is totally closed and maintains that closure through institutionalized violence.

      And I love how you airheads always love to point out:

      Crusades. Well the mu-slimes invaded western land. They don’t want people to kill them back, they shouldn’t have killed in the first place. That’s a concept mu-slimes find hard to grasp.

      Inquisition. That’s just greedy land grab by the Catholic Church. Noticed how the Protestant Reformation came about? Try doing that in Islam and you get a Fatwa.

      Witch Hunts. Every culture who is devoid of science does that. Go talk to the teachers in Islam. Let’s see how much science they know of, besides turning on the ignition switch.

      You forgot on big one:

      Slavery. They still do this is Islam.

      As I said. You Air Heads are Funny.

    FACT: Everywhere where there are mu-Slimes, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    USA — 9/11 happened

    Goes to reason, no mu-slimes, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

    Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.
