WASHINGTON — The Secret Service is investigating three threatening messages that were posted on the White House's Facebook page.

The messages included a picture of Osama bin Laden. One said, "We'll come back 11/9/2011 to kill u all." Another showed small plane icons and said, "Today we'll come 11/9/2011."

Another said, "We'll come to u white house sooooooooooon," says another.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan says the agency has referred the messages to its Internet threat desk.

Donovan says the Secret Service has a process in place to handle the wide spectrum of Internet threats, social media posts and tweets brought to the attention of officials.

The White House referred all questions to the Secret Service.

The threats come as the New York City and Washington, D.C., have tightened security after intelligence from Pakistan indicated a possible threat involving car bombs, as well threats to bridges and tunnels. The threat indicated that three men would travel from Pakistan to the U.S. to carry out an attack.
