Al Qaeda Supposedly Was Planning September 11 Anniversary Attack
The administration which is unable to release a photo of the biggest "success" in the fight on terrorism, could not contain its excitement in releasing more info that will certainly get US society to get even more Kafka-fied. As ABC reports: "An early read of the materials seized from Osama bin Laden's compound has not yet produced evidence of a specific, imminent terror plot against the U.S., but does show the group continues to have murderous aspirations, according to U.S. officials and to documents obtained by ABC News." And yes, we are confident we will get full blueprints of this particular data set imminently: after all America needs its daily diversion.
More from ABC:
"As of February 2010, al-Qa'ida was allegedly contemplating conducting an operation against trains at an unspecified location in the United States on the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001," the document reads, using an alternate spelling for bin Laden's terror group. "As one option, al-Qa'ida was looking into trying to tip a train by tampering with the rails so that the train would fall off the track at either a valley or a bridge. "
According to former White House counterterrorism advisor and ABC News consultant Richard Clarke, the fact that such proposals were discovered in bin Laden's possession shows how integral he still appeared to be to terror plots.
The evidence appears to confirm that Bin Laden still had a role in approving al Qaeda plots, just he did for the 9/11 terror attack.
An "Orgy of Evidence"
One U.S. official told ABC News the materials found at the bin Laden hideout included schematics and websites involving a variety of plots al Qaeda was considering.
One official described the documents reviewed so far as "aspirational" but not indicative of final stage planning.
And with that, prepare for orders from above telling you to pass through the subway gate naked.
