Chertoff On Europe Travel Alert: “Don’t Walk Around With American Flag On Your Back”

Some more information on the travel alert the U.S. State Dept. issued for Americans traveling to Europe. Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff spoke with Good Morning America this morning and said it sounds like intelligence officials have “credible information that’s not terribly specific as to time and place.”

Chertoff also noted this is the lowest level alert the State Dept. ever issues and that it’s “not a suggestion that you not travel.” However Chertoff advised that travelers should use good judgment and perhaps not “walk around with a big American flag on your backpack because that may single you out for special attention.” Watch the full segment below. Generally speaking sounds like travelers are just being advised to be alert.
