The news comes one week before the midterm elections, amid threats from Islamic State terrorists
government is stepping up security at federal buildings in Washington, D.C., and nationwide, citing enhanced risks of “small-scale attacks by a lone offender.”
“The reasons for this action are self-evident: the continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland and elsewhere, including against law enforcement and other government officials, and the acts of violence targeted at government personnel and installations in Canada and elsewhere recently
“We are taking this action as a precautionary step, to safeguard U.S. government personnel and facilities, and the visitors to those facilities,”

Haven't they "tightened security" at federal buildings many times since the "war on terror" began? Those buildings should be air and watertight by now. What happened? Did it get all loose again?
I think the only thing that really happens is that they announce that they are "tightening security".
