High security alert in Paris

Leaving for Paris today and just read on internet about the high alert for terrorist attack. Anyone concerned besides me? Will be traveling alone.

Fasten your seat belt in the taxi bringing you at the airport and in the plane, it would be more dangerous than taking the metro in Paris...

The US has been on the corresponding level for months and months now.

Do you stay home?

I got home a few hours ago from Paris and there was a report on the radio here that the French authorities announced that they have received a credible threat of a female suicide bomber somewhere in Paris and they have increased security. The source was AP.

The full story on the French press was that they had received a credible threat, but that no such threat had actually come to pass...that they'd intercepted the messages and were 'continuing the investigation'.

The local press is more interested in the coincidence that the government suddenly finds a security threat when the president is scraping the floor in the polls and a major strike is coming up.

It's called "ruling the world with fear."

purely coincidence, of course, Kerouac, because (and I quote) surely the amount of work and money involved in evacuating St Michel metro station and the Eiffel tower would be entirely too high to undertake for what amounts to a publicity stunt.

(cue cocked eyebrows and a cynical stare)

It's in all the major newspapers today in Belgium.

Confidence was extremely high, and there is a man(woman) hunt now for the socalled terrorist.
