threat, but dismissed it. today, the federal government revised its system for wning americans of terrorist threats. the department of homeland security issued its first bulletin today. it was a statement of what is already painfully clear. jeff pegues has more on this. >> reporter: today's bulletin says the country is in a new phase in the global threat environment. law enforcement is concerned about self-radicalized individuals who could strike with little or no notice. it also warned of threats against communities based on perceived religion, ethnicity, or nationality. the new bulletin alert was added because the other two categoriri, elevated and imminentntrequired detailed information and were never activated. bulletins like today's can be sent without a specific threat. homeland security secretary jeh johnson. >> what we are concerned about,
