Threat Level Reduced to Yellow

Politics | April 16, 2003, Wednesday // 00:00

Twenty-nine days after raising the national threat level to orange, or high, the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday reduced the level one step to yellow, or elevated.

The threat level was raised from yellow to orange at 8 p.m. on March 17, when U.S. President George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein a 48-hour ultimatum to step down as leader of Iraq.

At that time, the White House said that intelligence from many sources indicated that terror group al Qaeda might attempt to launch terrorist attacks against U.S. interests, claiming it was defending Muslims or Iraqis.

No such terrorist incidents have happened during the war in Iraq.
