I posted the headline because I expect I'll get more information, sooner, from this forum than I will from Drudge.

Also, I figured others would appreciate the heads-up.

Yesterday around 5:30 pm all vehicles coming out of Logan Airport was stopped and searched. No mention on the news except of a bus breakdown. Traffic was tied up for miles. Something was up and it was obvious that there was a media lock-down.

FoxNews just picked up on it - again, headline only basically....

They did mention the upcoming presser, but it’s unclear whether they’ll be live-covering it.....

Update:

A 27-year-old man from Sudbury has been arrested on charges he planned terrorism attacks inside and outside the United States, including a plot to use automatic weapons to open fire at shoppers and emergency responders in shopping mall attacks, federal prosecutors said today.

Tarek Mehannah, of 6 Fairhaven Circle, is accused of conspiring with Ahmab Abousamra and others to obtain the automatic weapons needed to carry out a mall ambush in which they planned to open fire at random, said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks.

The plot included plans to fire at emergency responders, but was abandoned because the men could not obtain the weapons.

Prosecutors also allege the men discussed participating in violent Jihad against American interests and their desire to die on the “battlefield.” The crimes are alleged to have taken place between 2001 and 2008.

Loucks and Warren T. Bamford, special-agent-in-charge of the Boston FBI field office, have called a 10 a.m. press conference to discuss the arrest.

” Any info on specific shopping centers? “

There were reports during the Zazi incident that ‘security had been heightened at several WalMarts in upstate NY’..

Never heard any follow-up on it, though.....
