No Sign Terror Suspects Entered U.S.

Authorities said Saturday that there was no evidence to support an earlier intelligence tip that three suspected terrorists entered the U.S. on a plan to attack on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Counterterrorism officials have been chasing the intelligence tip since last Wednesday, and they said they will remain on high alert through the weekend. But FBI Assistant Director James McJunkin described the tip as “routine” and said it had chosen to go public with the information only because of the timing. President Obama met with his security team Saturday, and White House officials assured Americans that security measures will not be “relaxed” after the threat.
