US military hikes alert level ahead of Sept. 11

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon on Wednesday raised its alert level at US military bases, most of them domestic, ahead of the 10th anniversary commemorations of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on Sunday.
"This is not in response to any particular threat but is a prudent and precautionary measure," said Pentagon spokesman George Little. The Pentagon said the move takes effect on Wednesday and will continue through Sunday.
