As Americans celebrate Thanksgiving today, federal, state and local officials are on high alert in the New York-Washington corridor for the possibility of catastrophic al Qaeda attacks. The heightened threat assessment comes as terrorists coordinated horrifying attacks in India’s financial capital of Mumbai, killing 101 people, wounding at least 287, and taking numerous hostages, including as many as eight Israelis. Let’s be praying for our security forces and leaders over the next few days. Let’s also be praying for the authorities in India, and for the victims of these evil attacks, and their families.
