Senators urge vigilance after new bin Laden tape surfaces

January 22, 2006 - Posted at 1:58 p.m. CST

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Two top senators say Americans need to pay
close attention to Osama bin Laden's latest warning.

The audio recording that surfaced last week was the first public
statement by the al-Qaida leader in more than year. Bin Laden
warned of an upcoming attack on the United States, but the tape
carried no specific threat.

Government officials have said they expect the American people
to live their lives as normally as possible, but Senator Pat
Roberts is urging vigilance. He tells C-B-S Americans need to take
the warning seriously. Democrat Joseph Lieberman says al-Qaida will
remain a danger to the U-S for many years to come.
