attacks in London planned in U.S. (using double-speak)

No sign attack planned in U.S.-Homeland Security

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. officials reacted with little public fanfare to the terrorist attacks in London on Thursday, reporting no indication a similar attack was planned in the United States and no immediate plan to raise the terrorism alert level.
A Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman said federal officials were promptly in contact with local authorities and commuters were urged to be alert after a series of explosions rocked London killing several people. British Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was an apparent terrorist attack coinciding with a meeting of Group of Eight leaders in Scotland.

President Bush was in Scotland for the G8 session and said he directed homeland security officials to be extra vigilant as Americans headed to work. Vice President Dick Cheney was on a scheduled trip to his ranch in Wyoming and would be returning to Washington, as planned, on Thursday afternoon.
"The war on terror goes on," Bush said.
