Government To Unveil New Threat Advisory System

The government will implement a new national terror alert system today that will replace current terror threat level warnings.

Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano will announce the new system Wednesday.

The new method replaces the color coded threat levels put in place after the 9/11 terror attacks. Now there will be just two threat levels -- elevated and imminent.

Napolitano says it streamlines the process to let the public know about threats.
