Don’t change your holiday plans: US Homeland Security


WASHINGTON, D.C.: US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson on Sunday urged Americans to not change their plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend holiday despite the recent terror attack in Paris. “We have no specific credible intelligence about a threat of the Paris type directed at the homeland here,” said Johnson, speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press talk show. “With this holiday season coming up we want the public to continue to go to public events, celebrate the holiday season, travel, be with their families and the like,” Johnson said. Officials are expecting three million people at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City. Johnson, however, cautioned that officials “are always concerned about potential copycat homegrown violent extremism of the type we have seen in recent month and years.”
