The State Dept. calls it, "an abundance of caution"

Wonder if that includes travel within the continental US?

I don't know where. I don't know when. But something bad is going to happen. In the Middle East.

Probably not, seems to refer to embassies and locales abroad. You can't really keep Americans from traveling around back home in any case, and if it were to include travel within CONUS you'd think they'd have been a little more specific.

Looks like expecting some terrorist attacks from Al-Qaeda.

What is happening?
Snowden leaked the XKeyscore program on Wednesday.

.gov needs to justify it's throughly unConstitutional, completely crimnal, wildly expensive, and more or less useless intrusion on American liberty in the name of fighting boogeymen.

What better way then to cry "BOOGEYMEN!!!!"?

That's my understanding. Least we use to be.

Especially since some sources are know saying there could be targets other than 'embassies'.
Then I would suppose the alert applies to the USA.
