President Obama: No Credible Reports of a 'Plot on the Homeland'


President Barack Obama tried to reassure nervous Americans on Wednesday that the nation's security services were ready for anything terrorists might throw at them.

Speaking on the eve of Thanksgiving, Obama said law enforcement officials have received no credible reports of "a plot on the homeland" like the horrific Nov. 13 massacre in Paris.

"All of us recognize how horrific and heinous what took place in Paris was," Obama said. "I know that Americans have been asking each other whether it's safe here, whether it's safe to fly or gather. I know that families have discussed their fears about the threat of terrorism around the dinner table, many for the first time since September 11th."
