U.S. anticipates al Qaeda ‘threats of retaliation’

” The U.S. Department of Homeland Security expects ‘threats of retaliation’ from al Qaeda in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden’s death, a department official told CNN early Monday.

‘We certainly anticipate threats of retaliation — this is an organization that declared war on the United States more than a decade ago. Threats from al Qaeda are not a new phenomenon,’ the official said.

The United States put American diplomatic facilities around the world on high alert and issued a global travel warning for Americans shortly after President Barack Obama announced that the terrorist leader had been killed in Pakistan by U.S. special forces. “
