New Homeland Security Threat System starts!
Today the Department of Homeland Security retires the old color-coded terrorism threat system and replaces it with the National Terrorism Advisory System. "The new alerts will include a clear statement that there is an 'Imminent Threat' or 'Elevated Threat' along with clear and concise information about the threat," reports ABC News. "Imminent warns of a credible, specific and impending terrorist threat against the United States. Elevated is defined as a credible terrorist threat against the United States. The public will be informed of what the government is doing to mitigate the threat and what it can do deal with the threat.
