KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) - The White House says some United States airports will tighten security in response to possible terrorist
incidents in Britain.
But the government is not raising its terror alert status. Speaking to reporters in Kennebunkport, Maine, spokesman Tony Snow says "there is no indication of any specific or credible threat to the United States" and "no change in the overall security level."
The Transportation Security Administration has taken steps at some airports, however. Snow says more T.S.A agents will be posted
outside some terminals. He added that travelers could face "longer
wait times" and local police might also take their own security
Snow says President Bush is being kept up to date on developments in Britain. Bush otherwise spent the day biking and fishing.
