DHS Issues a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin

WASHINGTON, DC (STL.News) Wednesday, January 27, 2021, US Department of Homeland Security released the following statement:

The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin today after consultation with the intelligence community and law enforcement partners.  There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States that is likely to persist over the coming weeks.  DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.
