Now that US government terror warnings have told citizens to beware of (for example) people with almanacs and people who express dislike for the US government and its decisions, we suppose that this was inevitable:

Asking for increased vigilance in the wake of the London bombings, the US government is warning that terrorists may pose as vagrants to conduct surveillance of buildings and mass transit stations to plot future attacks.

"In light of the recent bombings in London, it is crucial that police, fire and emergency medical personnel take notice of their surroundings, and be aware of 'vagrants' who seem out of place or unfamiliar," said the message, distributed via e-mail to some federal employees in Washington by the U.S. Attorney's office.
