(Newser) – US citizens visiting Thailand were warned today that terrorists may be planning attacks on tourist areas in Bangkok "in the near future," the Bangkok Post reports. A message from the US embassy urges citizens "to exercise caution when visiting public areas where large groups of Western tourists gather in Bangkok," and "to keep a low profile in public areas."

Just like 9/11 we had 12 countries tell us that terrorist attacks were on the way, was it the n6 report that even told them witch week it was planned, and they knew who these terrorist were before the attack. I believe bush and cheney needed these attacks so they could start a couple of bullshit wars. 15 of the terrorist were from Saudi Arabia,the day after 9/11 we let 24 of Osama Bin Laden family fly out of America with out asking them a single question. Then we attack Afghanstan, this is not right, wake up America before it's to late.
