Basketball fans may face long lines today as they flock to watch their favorite college teams play in the March Madness basketball tournament. Last week, the FBI warned stadium owners of possible suicide attacks at sporting events:
In a directive issued today (Friday), obtained by ABC News, the FBI says a posting on an extremist message board “advocated suicide attacks against sporting events as a cost-effective means of killing thousands of Americans.”
The FBI says the Internet posting said the suicide attacks would be justified because the United States refused a truce offered by Osama bin Laden in his last videotaped statement, Jan. 19, 2006.
According to the FBI bulletin, the author of the posting recommended using “three to five blond or black American Muslim suicide bombers.”
