Terror Threat Targets U.S. Open

 
Terror Threat Targets U.S. Open
Posted Thursday, July 17th 2014 @ 9am

A terror magazine is suggesting the U.S. Open as a potential target for an attack.

In a recent edition of Inspire magazine, an article titled "Car Bombs Inside America" tells readers to target people and not buildings.  It descrbes how to build a car bomb and reminds readers that America is the number one target.

One of the suggested targets is the U.S. Open because it's attended by thousands of people.

The NYPD took note of the threat, but also tried to downplay it publicly.

"I want to be very clear - we've had no threat reporting related to the U.S. Open," said Rebecca Weiner, the NYPD's director of intelligence analysis.

The Daily News reports the NYPD typically floods the tennis venue with both uniformed and plainclothes police officers.
