WASHINGTON The upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama is an attractive target for international and domestic terrorists, but U.S. intelligence officials have no information about specific threats to the Jan. 20 event.
An internal intelligence assessment, obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday, says the high visibility of the event, the presence of dignitaries and the significance of swearing in the country's first black president make the inauguration vulnerable to attacks.

Jack Bauer is in Africa at this moment trying to get there in time..
Naahhh! The terrorists will be dancin in the streets.
What a headline. In other breaking news, water is wet and fire is hot.
It is what the Obama Administration wants; to wit, be nice to them.
Be sensitive to their feeeeeeeeeeeelings. Read them their constitutional rights, provide them with taxpayer-paid attorneys -- anything they want so they do not feel uncomfortable. TIA.
What domestic terrorists? I hope we aren’t going to go back to the days of Clinton’s right wing militia kookiness. Why would Islamic terrorists want Obama dead or injured? He is going to be the best friend they could ever hope for.
But, But, But, it’s 0be, The ONE, the healer of the US image and reputation.
Captain Obvious: Pick up the courtesy phone.
Will the shocking news never end? ;)
Impossible! With the election of 0bama, terrorism is a thing of the past.
The One is the last best hope for America’s enemies.
Why would they attack their own?
For the eleventy-ninth time, this is NOT just any old mundane Inauguration.
The is the ASCENSION of The One (piss be upon him) to His rightful place as Dear Leader Of The Obamanation!
This is the time the Faithful have awaited, and they shall have pie!
As do I.
God Forbid. Regardless, if another 9/11 hits America 0bama will light up another smoke and simply vote “present”.
You really ought to get a grip! calm down and take three deep breaths.
Well some of the Islamofacists think he is an infadel therefore needs killing. That is their way of thinking. Zawahiri ( sp) put it out yesterday for the Islamos to take after Israel and US interests world wide. Would not the Imposter in Chief’s special day be an interesting choice? Can’t you see the mayhem? Why they would have to scrub the balls...
Except I am hoping for the mother of all sleet storms on Coronation day. Let all the adoring crowds of clowns slip and slide and topple over.
Oh.. our son in law is going to be on the NBC Nightly News tomorrow night..guess it is an interview about Inaug Day security. He is with the USCG so he will discuss water ways. Don’t know who else will be on with him but much as we detest MSM we will take a peek tomorrow. Then back to FOX for at least a more balanced sort of news.
Just rub him down with pig fat and the terrorists will be afraid to blow him up, for fear of becoming impure and not getting to see Allah.
Rub him in pig fat, that will keep the terroists at bay.
nicely said. I’m sure many would agree to your summation.
Not really. There will be at least half a million more people in this city, and things *did* happen last inauguration that didn’t leak out.
Oh? Like what?
I never want to see another terrorist attack on Amercan soil, however the irony of this would be hard to miss.
I have to work that day. Darn. I won’t see anything about it as it is college basketball season and there is football to think about and hockey is still in play and NASCAR will kick off in a few weeks and “Lost” and “24” are getting ready to heat up.
Think of 200,000 people on the National Mall and a people bomb.
Not if they have to take the Metro!
