WASHINGTON  — A top US military official on Friday said new warnings about insulated beverage containers are an example of federal officials trying to anticipate terror tactics.

Adm. James Winnefeld told The Associated Press Friday that the Transportation Security Administration is "always trying to think ahead." Winnefeld is the head of the US Northern Command, which is charged with protecting the homeland.

TSA officials had said Thursday that in coming days, passengers flying within and to the US may notice additional security measures related to insulated beverage containers such as thermoses.
