The nation’s still at orange alert and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says he’s pleased with the cooperation the U-S is getting from other nations in trying to thwart terrorists. The alert level was raised last week, based on information that’s still just leaking out. Some flights between Los Angeles and Paris were cancelled last week and reports say Las Vegas was an apparent target. Grassley says he’s encouraged by France’s immediate response to U-S warnings and how other nations are agreeing to our request to place armed air marshals on certain international flights. Meanwhile, Las Vegas will be a partial no-fly zone on New Year’s Eve. Only commercial flights, medical, police and military aircraft will be allowed to fly over the Vegas strip between nine p-m and three a-m.
