As the terror warning concerns some buildings of financial institutions in new york, the warning level was not nationwide, but only in new york increased (yellow) too high (orange). However, as in the past, however, the impression will not start that the terror’s warning warnings sent by the US government (osama is back!) at least also pursue a political purpose.
