The Department of Defense raised a nationwide Forced Protection Level up to Bravo.

Fort Carson confirms to 11 News that there is no specific threat to Fort Carson or the community. Ft. Carson will not be specific about changes at its gates, saying only there will be "heightened security." Expect delays.

The Air Force Academy has also increased its security posture as directed by the Department of Defense. All gates remain open for business, but an increased number of people will be subject to search at the gates and at random checkpoints on the installation.
All tourists will be granted entry through the North Gate only during visitor hours, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. A valid driver’s license is required for Academy access. Access will be limited for tourists by manned security checkpoints around the installation. All visitors who need to be sponsored onto the installation for other business must use the South Gate Pass and Registration Center (PRC). Visitors with a valid need to enter must have a photo ID.

The Public Affairs Officer for NORAD says NORAD/Peterson AFB increased security measures, everyone in a car trying to enter the facilities needs to have valid ID's. It could take additional time at any entrances, or checkpoint.

    Hey pc; you appear to be on the hope Obama fails at the expense of the country bandwagon. No one is calling Obama a hero. However Obama did orchestrate and coordinate operations based on intelligence that led to the annihilation of Osama bin-laden. This is called leadership; not heroism. That is what we expect from our president. Unlike Bush jr. making jokes about not being able to find him by looking under a table while our troops are dying in an unjust war based on false intelligence. Or changing the reasons for invading Iraq every time his current justifications didn't hold water. Heck even Rush Limbaugh made some unprecedented kind remarks about this historic event in reference to president Obama. If it makes you feel any better; Obama probably won't get re-elected as no president has in history when the unemployment rate has been above 8 percent. Yes; he has failed in this regard but give credit where it is due and stop being such a hater.

    OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found Osama Bin Laden and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an… AMERICAN victory!!

    Mateo why don't you thank the troops who kept you safe and praise Bush for taking on fight no one else would touch. To bad the capture didn't happen in his presidancy. Thank you troops and I know everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Now lets bring our heros home.

    SO, the sheeple still think Bin Laden was behind 9/11 and not Bush? Morons. Think about it-oil unrest=profit$. Record profits again for Exxonmobil, and you blame a Saudi insomniac for 9/11. Sheeple, you earned it.
