Thought this was interesting... keep your eyes open y'all. I live near an Air Force Base and security has already tightened...


DEVELOPING STORY: Federal counterterrorism officials are analyzing a posting on an Islamic forum Web site that warns of "a special gift" to be given on the sixth anniversary of Sept. 11, FOX News has learned.

The warning was posted Sept. 2 on a site frequented by radical groups and said in part that "there will be a special gift coming on the day of the blessed invasion of Manhattan."

Federal officials told FOX News they are trying to determine if it might be a specific warning or just part of broad chatter that has been heard during the last few months.

Postings talking about "gifts" have been seen before in the days leading up to the anniversary of Sept. 11.

We have seen big changes all over Washington DC as well. But we always see that in the week or so before the 9/11 anniversary. I do a lot of work in DC and from where I'm sitting, better safe then sorry. My wife was only a few miles from the Pentagon on 9/11,and could see the flames and smoke from her window. I've also have had a few clients that were in the Pentagon that day. I know the trauma and stress that attack put on DC, and I can't imagine what it was like in New York. I don't care if it's propaganda or not, I don't ever want to see that happen again.

With the anniversary of September 11th approaching, they are making sure there is not a repeat.

It happens this time every year since the World Trade Center was hit.

Bearmaker, I just noticed your from Finland.
I'm not one to stir things up and give people a hard time on the boards, but unless you were here, in New York City or Washington DC, you have no clue what those attacks did to this country. As I said before, from where my butt is sitting right now as I post this, better safe then sorry.

And my wifes butt as well.

It was the same here in Oklahoma City after the bombing we had even though it was not as large or wide spread as 911 was.

One of the FBI agents that was killed in that attack was buried in the cemetery around the corner from where I lived at the time. I got stuck in a shopping center parking lot for 2 hours as the funeral procession made it's way to the cemetery. Seeing multiple police units from every state, including Hawaii, all the military and fire units that were in the procession made me really stop and think about what had happened there. Until then it had been really sad, but had not impacted my life. It did that day. The tears we flowing for quite a while, and I didn't care who saw them.
