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.

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.
