U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson visited Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday and briefly commented on reports that security officials told airlines to be extra vigilant against would-be shoe bombers.
Here’s what he said.
“The advisory we issued is the type that we routinely issue in response to the latest intelligence,” Johnson said. “As you know, concerns about shoe bombs have been out there for years. Every once in awhile we update our advisories. We monitor our procedures so that we remain vigilant and in dealing with the various different threats that exist.”
