Menendez on NY/DC Terror Threats on 9/11 10th Anniversary

Washington - US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today released the following statement in response to reports of a potential terror plot in the NY or DC area on the 9/11 10th Anniversary:

"While we are far safer and more prepared as a country 10 years after the attacks of September 11th, the reports of a potential terror plot remind us that we must never become complacent. My office has been briefed by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI and I am confident that our intelligence and anti-terrorism teams are working cooperatively and in coordination with local law enforcement to both pin down any information regarding a threat, as well as to keep us from harm." Said Senator Menendez.

"I encourage all New Jerseyans and Americans to remain vigilant and go about their lives as we commemorate the sacred anniversary of September 11.
I will be in New Jersey and New York City this weekend joining families and friends at ceremonies, memorials and events, beginning this afternoon where I will proudly stand with New Jersey's finest first responders. Like all of us who will commemorate that day ten years ago, I will be alert, but I will not be afraid."
