New Al Qaeda Message Expected
From the Blotter
With European law enforcement officials warning of an imminent holiday terror attack, Web sites associated with al Qaeda announced today that the group’s second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is about to issue a new statement entitled “the truths about the clash between Islam and atheism.”
According to the Associated Press, John Reid, Britain’s top law enforcement official, said Sunday that it was “highly likely” that terrorists would attempt to mount an attack over the holiday period, when the number of travelers swells. He gave no other details.
The head of Britain’s domestic spy agency MI5, Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, has said her agents are tracking almost 30 terrorist plots involving 1,600 suspects, and that at least five major terror plots had been thwarted since the July 2005 transit bomb attacks in London.
Sounds like Al Qaeda is planning its own Christmas Special
