Comments on the FBI's
Unsubstantiated Rumors

We've received several e-mails asking about the truth in the rumor that al-Qaeda
may be plotting a terrorist attack on the subway or other transit systems in New
York City during the holidays.

This apparent rumor started with a classified intelligence bulletin describing
the potential plot which was issued Nov. 25th by the Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Their warning cannot be corroborated with any private Intelligence Analysts we
are in communication with.

The FBI and DHS bulletin says that they had "received a plausible but
unsubstantiated report" indicating that al-Qaeda terrorists in late September
may have discussed targeting transit systems in and around New York City.

Bill Carter, an FBI spokesman, said the report was issued "as a routine matter"
so local law-enforcement officials could make plans for the holiday season.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said additional police officers were being deployed
"out of an abundance of caution."

This type of unsubstantiated reporting is nothing more than fear mongering on
the part of the FBI and DHS.

Some insiders say that with their failure to release a warning concerning 9/11,
they will report any unsubstantiated claim to cover themselves should something
