WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder says he has
serious concerns about Americans' safety from possible revenge
attacks for Osama bin Laden's death.
Holder told senators during testimony Wednesday morning that he
thinks bin Laden's death ultimately will make the United States
safer. But meanwhile, he's trying to address the risk that
terrorists will avenge his killing.
Holder said he held a conference call earlier this week with
U.S. attorneys nationwide to go through steps he wants them to take
to be on their toes. He did not specify what those steps are.
Holder also said the FBI is working with intelligence officers
to examine evidence collected from bin Laden's residence in
Pakistan and he expects names will be added to the terrorist watch
list and no-fly list because of it.
