The alerts sparked a lot of enhanced security across the nation, but even those doing the enhancing were quick to note that there was “no credible threat” to any of the potential targets.

The latest speculation about attacks appear to stem from the high-profile arrest of 26-year old airport shuttle driver Najibullah Zazi, which officials have claimed was linked to terrorism but has not prompted any terror-related charges.

The primary evidence culled from Zazi’s arrest were “bomb-making materials,” which consisted of little more than a battery powered scale and some extra batteries for it.
