Al Qaeda wants to ruin your trip to the mall. From ABC News:
The FBI is warning that al Qaeda may be preparing a series of holiday attacks on U.S. shopping malls in Los Angeles and Chicago, according to an intelligence report distributed to law enforcement authorities across the country this morning.
It should be noted that authorities are questioning the credibility of the threat, as similar threats have surfaced around the holidays over the past 5 years.
Still, it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye out for the funny while looking for a Wii. See something odd? Tell someone.
UPDATE (4:23PM): L.A. Times reports the threat is being discounted. Yay! Shoppers rejoice! Off to the Grove you go!
