Given that this is our nation’s peak travel season, it makes great sense that terrorists would consider it a perfect time for attack. So the White House has urged Americans to be on the lookout during the holiday period, warning of a possible but unspecified terror threat al-Qaida, ABC News reports.

white, house, holiday, terror, warning"We remain vigilant to attempts by al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations to carry out cowardly attacks against innocent men, women, and children, and we are working very closely with other governments to share all threat information immediately and to coordinate closely our counterterrorism and security activities," John Brennan, White House counterterrorism chief, says in a statement.

An unnamed administration official told The Associated Press that the Homeland Security Department has informed air carriers of a possible terrorist threat involving insulated beverage containers like thermoses. To be sure, there is no known plot in that regard, the official acknowledges.
