FBI: No credible threats to inauguration activities

By Carol Cratty

As law enforcement agencies finalize security preparations for Barack Obama's second inauguration, an FBI official said Tuesday authorities have "no credible corroborated threats to any of the activities."

Debra Evans Smith, the FBI's acting assistant director in charge of its Washington field office, said the FBI will have specialized personnel ready to go to meet any security challenge.

"We will have our SWAT team, pretty much all of our specialty teams will be available and on standby to include (weapons specialists), our dive team, our intelligence team - working around the clock - our hostage negotiators, (and) our special agent bomb technicians will also be available," Smith told reporters.

    Well there were no credible threats when the CIA murdered JFK using E H Hunt as the hit man under the direction of the Bush family either.

All that by the time I ate breakfast and laughed at your ignorance. ignorance.
