Pentagon raises force-protection level for military installations as 10th anniversary of 9-11 approachesDefense Secretary Leon E. Panetta has authorized raising the force-protection level for military installations mainly in the United States, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said today.
The commander of U.S. Northern Command Commander, Army Gen. Charles H. Jacoby Jr., requested the action in recent days in advance of the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. homeland, he added.
Little said Panetta and Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, reviewed the request.
“This is not in response to any specific or credible threat surrounding the 10th anniversary of 9/11,” Little told reporters, “but we believe it is prudent and precautionary to take such a step.”
It’s no secret that al-Qaida has focused on holidays and milestone events in the past, Little added, noting that the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was mentioned in documents seized at the Abbottabad compound in Pakistan

Its always a good idea to stay sharp, I don't see a need to raise security we should be at a high level all the time.
