Feds fear for another independent terrorist attack during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday

  • An FBI and Department of Homeland Security notice calls for U.S. law enforcement officials to look out for other lone-ranger terrorists
  • The Tsarnaev brothers originally planned their attack for the Fourth of July holiday
  • Firework explosives were found in the bombs used at the Boston Marathon


Law enforcement officials across the U.S. were warned Friday to be on the lookout for a possible terrorist attack during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. 

The notice was issued in a ‘Roll Call Release’ by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, and obtained by ABC News

While officials said there weren’t any credible threats tied to the holiday as of Friday night, the recent Boston Marathon bombings have caused concern about other independent extremist ‘knuckleheads’ like the Tsarnaev brothers.

Bombs over Boston: Boston has one of the largest Independence Day celebrations in the country, which makes it a target for another potential terrorist attack

In fact, the Tsarnaev brothers had planned their attack on Boston for the Fourth of July, but executed it a few months early during the Boston Marathon once their bombs were ready. Investigators found firework explosive powder in the bomb remains.

The Tsarnaev brothers didn’t seem to have a strong connection to foreign terrorist cells. So avoiding another lone-ranger attack is ‘of paramount concern’ for the national holiday.
