WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Pentagon is raising the security level at its military bases across the country because of the upcoming anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Press secretary George Little says the boost in the so-called "force protection" level is not due to any specific or credible information about any threat or planned attack.

He says it's due, instead, to the fact that al-Qaida has previously focused on anniversary dates. And he notes that materials seized at the compound where Osama bin Laden was killed mentioned the 9/11 anniversary.
