BOSTON (CBS) — As the holiday bustle picks up, so does law enforcement awareness.

Sources tell CBS News the FBI is alerting police across the country about a potential terrorist attack around Thanksgiving.

It specifically warns of homegrown terrorists. Potential targets? Shopping malls, special events, crowded venues–locations in Washington, D.C. and Virginia described as target-rich zones. ISIS’s magazine called New York City’s Macy’s Parade an excellent target.

And potential tactics could include guns, IEDs, or drones equipped with IEDs.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says there is no specific threat to the Boston area, but it’s good to stay on your toes.

“We’re going to have more visibility out on the streets,” Walsh told WBZ-TV Friday. “People are going to see more police officers out there. You know, even during the holiday season, the shopping, we try to put more visibility out there.”

    If their is an attack the libs will say its Trumps fault even though the hag said isis wanted Trump to win.

  2. Good. The more unarmed urban liberals that die, the better.
    Go get ’em, ISIS

  3. Terror Attacks? Old news. We see videos every year of American citizens terrorizing each other to save a buck from Walmarts every year, lol.

    If they want it and you got it, they’ll get it.

    Didn’t they kill someone last year at a WM?

    Thanks Obama, the fool.

  5. The attacks will come from LA Raza,Black Lives Matters,Moveon.Org,The Southern Poverty Law Center ,The American Communist Party,and all brain dead college snowflakes wanting to steal the presidency

  6. Left wing terrorists just stuck again, a police officer was just murdered in Dallas. They have been attacking police and people they think supported Trump. Police can not protect us. This is what the 2nd Amendment was meant for. Gun grabbers I feel sorry for you, repent and become gun owners while you can.

  7. I believe these events are conspired by the military industrial complex and our government. If I was a terrorist I wouldn’t be going after the public. I would be going after Washington and our military. This is how they try to keep us all in line making us think the way they want us to think.

  8. Lee Ellak says:

    I’m puzzled. With lax border security, how is it that our government is worried about ‘home-grown terrorists ‘ and not ISIS terrorists stealing across our poorly protected borders?

  9. Carol Rogers says:

    Still sorry Hillary didn’t win she would have brought more into the country.
