  TSA ramps up security, warns against lone actors after Brussels

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is ramping up security at major U.S. airports and transit stations following deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels on Tuesday, with officials labeling the move as a precautionary step while warning against potential lone actors.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson emphasized in a statement there is “no specific, credible intelligence of any plot to conduct similar attacks” in the United States but said the threat of a lone terrorist attack is real.

“We remain very focused on the threat posed by lone terrorist actors who may lack direct connection to a foreign terrorist organization,” Johnson said. “We are concerned that such radicalized individuals or small groups could carry out an attack in the homeland with little warning.”

TSA is coordinating with local authorities and law enforcement to deploy additional security to major airports, as well as some rail and transit stations.
