Airport Security

By  | 

Screeners at Colorado's largest airport don't plan to make any immediate changes in response to a federal government warning that al-Qaida may be "almost ready to attack the United States.''

Attorney General John Ashcroft issued the grim warning this afternoon, based on what he says is ``credible intelligence from multiple sources.''

He says the terror group appears to be setting out to ``hit the United States hard.''

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Mike Fierberg in Denver says the new warning won't change what T-S-A screeners do.

He says screeners at Denver International Airport are vigilant every day, and that travelers won't notice any changes unless the nation's color-coded terror alert level is increased.
