Exclusive: The Dept. of Homeland Security Uncovered a Plot to Attack Hotels and Restaurants Over a Single Weekend
In this exclusive story, CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian reports the latest terror attack to America involves the possible use of poisons - simultaneous attacks targeting hotels and restaurants at many locations over a single weekend.
A key Intelligence source has confirmed the threat as "credible." Department of Homeland Security officials, along with members of the Department of Agriculture and the FDA, have briefed a small group of corporate security officers from the hotel and restaurant industries about it.

It's happened before!
In September 1985, there was an outbreak of salmonella poisoning at The Dalles, Oregon, possibly the largest known outbreak of salmonella in the United States up to that time. The state health department and the Center for Disease Control traced the cause to salad bars in eight different restaurants in The Dalles. About 750 people got sick and Rajneesh was blamed. Sheela later admitted the poisonings were part of the communitys political agenda, to show that they could do anything they wanted.
Well, I am so safe. I’d NEVER eat at a salad bar or buffet. I’m not much up for food poisoning, which can be had at these establishments pretty easily.
I have a basement full of it.
10 years and trillions of dollars would have been saved if we did this on 9-12
Thanks for posting this. Link sent to all loved ones and friends.
I am guessing that it should be permissible to fire every muslum that you have on your payroll for just cause. I don’t have any, never have and never intend to.

Now THAT is GROSS!
No need to apologize for the rant.
You’ve succinctly expressed my frustrations as well.
and mine. Thanks
Hey, don't blame me for Dirty Harry's eating habits...
Gooberment is good, we need more gooberment in our lives.
Just ask the nice goober from the gooberment agency.
Got it and thanks Vel for the ping.
I appreciate it.
“Just in time for passing the food safety act”.
Beat me to it.... sounds suspicious to me. Then again, everything reported by the media sounds suspicious to me. I guess terrorists were going to target small Mom and Pop vegetable stands.
...”briefed a small group of corporate security officers from the hotel and restaurant industries”...
If it’s credible enough to know who to warn, how about warning the public so that we know who to avoid?
I do not frequent salad bars. ;)
Buffets, however, could be a problem. :)
“Just in time for passing the food safety act.”
It passed a day or two ago, and had nothing to do with restaurants or hotels.
Traitorous demonized idiots.
Preach it Brother!
