Security Threat Level Upped at Military Bases for 1st Time Since 2011
The security threat level has been raised at U.S. military bases across the United States.
Jennifer Griffin reported today that the force protection level has been increased to ForceCom Bravo, which is the highest that the threat level has been since the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
The increase was ordered by the head of U.S. Northern Command due to unspecified terror threats. Spokespersons for the Department of Defense and Northern Command say that this was a prudent measure.
The increased security threat level will mean more guards at bases. It will also mean longer lines outside of bases, since two forms of ID will be required to enter.
