    Exclamation FBI Busts 'Real Deal' Terror Plot Aimed At NYC-NJ Underground Transit Link

    news link
    WASHINGTON FBI agents monitoring Internet chat rooms smashed an Al Qaeda terrorist plot to attack New York City's underground transit link with New Jersey, law enforcement officials said Friday.
    Eight suspects including an Al Qaeda loyalist arrested in Lebanon and two others in custody elsewhere had hoped to pull off the attack in October or November of this year, federal officials said. But federal investigators working with their counterparts in six other countries intervened.

    "We're here today to discuss what we believe is the real deal," Mark Mershon, former assistant FBI director in New York, said during a press conference Friday. "We believe we intercepted this group early in their plotting and in fact, the plan has largely been disrupted."

    I'm so grateful that LE was able to intercept this terror plot! There would have been untold numbers of victims if this plot had not been foiled.

    Good Job LE!
