The latest warning from the Homeland Security Department has been issued with more specificity than seen since the latter part of 2003. Tom Ridge,
once again is warning that "al Qaeda may strike soon", but this time the target may be a stadium or some other sports arena.
HERNDON, Va. (Reuters) - U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge on Friday warned top executives of major American sports organizations that al
Qaeda may strike soon -- possibly at large sports events.
In a seminar for commissioners and other top officials of professional and amateur sports organizations, Ridge and other Homeland Security officials
asked for help in ensuring safety at and around major sporting events.
He repeated a warning that the government fears al Qaeda might try to stage another large-scale attack in the United States, though he said he had no
details on the time, place or method.

From conventions to stadiums, the threat seems to be as wide as ever. Can the lack of specifics really leave us with such a vague canvas of potential
attacks? Surely there must be some solid intel pointing to what the next target may be...
