It seems that security assets have been alerted to possible plans to attack US and German by radical Islamist groups:
“The information behind the threat is very real,” a senior U.S. official told ABC News.
German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schauble told reporters, “The danger level is high. We are part of the global threat by Islamist terrorism.”
Of particular concern, according to U.S. and German law enforcement officials, is Patch Barracks, the headquarters for U.S. European Command, near Stuttgart.
Security at all U.S. military and diplomatic facilities has been increased in the last month following reports that suspected terrorists had conducted surveillance of the Patch Barracks facility.
“The attack would be designed to create high numbers of casualties among both Germans and the U.S. military,” said ABC News consultant Richard Clarke, a former White House counterterror official.
If this is a credible threat, I hope we get them first.
