WASHINGTON – NEWS – United States President Donald Trump has been tweeting out a barrage of messages over the past 36 hours. In his messages the President appears willing to take the United States into a higher level of military engagement in the Middle East.

President Trump seems to feel that his Tweets are as effective a weapon as the missiles he ordered into Baghdad.

The Twitterverse has been very busy over the days since the United States attacked and killed the Iranian General whom the United States deemed an international terrorist.

Homeland Security Statement

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf issued a new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the changing threat landscape following the successful U.S.-led airstrike in Iraq that eliminated Qaseem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

“At this time there is no specific, credible threat against the homeland. The Department issued this bulletin to inform, share protective measures, and reassure the American public, state and local governments, and private sector partners that the Department of Homeland Security is actively monitoring and preparing for any specific, credible threat, should one arise” said Acting Secretary Wolf. “The Department is operating with an enhanced posture and various operational components are taking protective measures where prudent and necessary. We have been in constant communication with Congress and interagency partners. The American people should feel assured the entire Department is working for them to keep them safe.”
