FBI warns violence could spread to the U. S.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning that violence could breakout in the United States as a spillover from the turmoil in the Middle East. ABC News is reporting
A U.S. intelligence bulletin warned today that the violent outrage aimed at U.S. embassies spawned by a movie mocking the Prophet Mohammed could be spread to America by extremist groups eager to "exploit anger."

The Joint Intelligence Bulletin issued by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security said "the risk of violence could increase both at home and abroad as the film continues to gain attention."

"First responders should remain aware of the potential for spontaneous large crowds and protests that could overwhelm resources and should be vigilant for possible efforts to encourage peaceful protesters to commit acts of violence," the warning said.

It urged "faith-based organizations to promptly report suspicious activities that could indicate pre-operational plotting against Jewish, Coptic, Islamic, or any other faith-based communities."

It added, however, that there was no information regarding any specific threats.

The bulletin warned that "violent extremist groups in the United States could exploit anger over the film to advance their recruitment efforts."

It goes on to note that angry protests in Benghazi, where four Americans were killed, and Cairo "mirror past incidents prompted by events perceived as anti-Islamic, which spurred sudden violence against U.S. interests overseas."

The bulletin was issued as fresh violence erupted at U.S. embassies in Yemen and Egypt, and the State Department said that 50 overseas missions have been given additional security and warned U.S. citizens in their area to be "extra vigilant." Some embassies warned of protests on Friday, the Muslim sabbath.

    Spreading Violence

    The FBI should have started warning folks about this back in the 60's and 70's when these "sleeper" terrorist cells started arriving here on our soil. The US government greeted them with open arms and open wallets. This is a practice that is still prevalent today. I have come to the conclusion that our government WANTS a war right here on our own soil. Why else would they let so many people enter our borders and give them free roam along with money to start a business. A business whose sole purpose is to send money back to their home country with the intent of sending more "troops" to the US.
