ABSTRACT
The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sparked new fears of terrorism over the New Year's holiday with an unusual, but vague, dragnet notice seeking the whereabouts of five suspicious individuals who allegedly entered the U.S. illegally. Officials said there were several additional people who might have used false documents to enter the country around Christmas Eve. President George W. Bush said that he personally authorized the public appeal, although there was no concrete link to terrorism. According to intelligence sources, the information came from a forgery suspect arrested in Canada.
